Default My chips are in

Disclaimer: Not trying to flame anything. I am a super fan of IL2 and a big supporter of this game.


But I was expecting a little bit more from this US release. No big deal, I will wait patiently for things to get worked out. For me, it just runs too choppy, I have to do too many tweaks outside of the game to get anything remotely resembling SLI to work (I know nVidia has yet to release a proper profile, I'm just saying -- it's still not even close to functional), there are so many stutters and I have plenty of RAM and an SSD HD it's clear that there are some major things yet to be tackled on the engine itself (flying over land is a nightmare, and I'm sorry, to blame it on anything else but code is a little naive), and when I finally dove into a mission with other aircraft I got a lock-up and a CTD. I mean this title has a lot going on, but it's just so far gone that I feel like I just paid for an alpha version. I think I just need to step away and play some other games while things get worked on before I get too jaded.

That said, I'm still absolutely confident that this game will be GREAT when it's all worked out. Keep hustling, devs, and polish this bad boy up! You've got my total support. I was happy to pay retail price for this game and I'll even wait it out while you work on it. A backwards business model, but whatever. No sense dwelling on it now.

So while I started this post off with essentially saying this game is unplayable even after all the work I've been reading that's been done, I'm still behind it 100%. Can't wait for the next patch and the new nVidia drivers. Let me correct myself. I can't wait for the next 10 patches and the new nVidia drivers.

S!

Thanks, Dutch.

Hey, how do you like the G940? I just got one off eBay and the guy forgot the power supply so I haven't been able to use it. Could you do a quick test for me? Does your PC recognize the stick without the power supply? I can't wait to fire the bad boy up but I'm nervous that it was just straight up damaged in shipping.

I have g940 and it works without powersupply, of course your joystick is limb, no centering forces and no FF of course.

If you have Logitech G25 wheel it works with it's powersupply too.

Dang it. I think I got a dud. I'll get a refund, but now I have to ship it back which is such a pain. Thanks for letting me know though.

Smile Mr. Greezly,...

... if you read a bit in this forum, you will find a lot of complaints about Ubisoft for releasing such an unfinished product, these complaints are justified but - you might as well ask Mr. Luthier what they have been doing all those (6) years before the sim was finally released... ... if you dare.

Because this question will probably provoke some nasty answers from many members here who hail and praise every little bit of information that is published from time to time by the developers.

I´m also waiting for the thing to get fixed but I suggest, wait until the end of the year maybe then they will have fumbled together something that can be called a good WW2 flightsim.


PS: sorry for wrong spelling of your name

Some People here are so immature, it seems, that they are not able to post without snide remarks.
Grow up, even if you are 60ish, what i dont think.

G940 is a cool setup there's already plenty of mods for it too.
