  1. JOKKR, take a bow you were top dog for the night. >S<
  2. A Friday Night Flight memory from Oct, 14, 2019
  3. I'll get with Moostafa and see if we can't come up with a "Supply Flight" Merit award. We'll just have to get an idea of how to get the credits, for JU52, automatically like the stats page we run now. But you do have a good idea. >S<

    Truth, Yes, reality, you'll be very outclassed. but for the most part you'll be able to play on all the maps

    you'll need to get Bodenplotte from IL2 though. A lot of maps are running the newest plane sets from there. https://il2sturmovik.com/store/battle-of-bodenplatte/

    Get at least Stalingrad from Steam. That will be the primary account. You'll get Steam Downloader for future updates. Then get the rest from either one, whoever has the best pricing when you're ready. You can always look here and see what you are missing and the current pricing on steam https://store.steampowered.com/search/?term=il2 Good to see you back Viper/Ginger >S<
  8. >S< I'm speaking of the 262 here. She's a sexy beast and if we were to fly it right no one is going to touch it with the exception of the laser locked AI tail gunners. I flew it on single player mission as an air start and killed an A20 and a PE2 and only took a single plink from the PE2. Both aircraft were wing off deaths. The unfortunate part of the 262 is the ammo loadout. It's light, Real light, I'm talkin' 8 seconds light if that. After the A20 and PE2 there are ground targets. I hit the convoy and got one truck and I was out of ammo. If you haven'e seen the Air Combat Tutorial youtube account on the 262 you need to see it before you even try to get one in a server. I kept overheating engine 1 while starting engine 2. And for those of you that fung schwayed your keymapper and can't start multiple engines on a single stroke of the E key you're Shit out of luck. There is a lot of little things to do during the startup process. I have to figure out how I can reset my igniter buttons for each engine to get them fired at certain timing during the start. She's a slug on the bottom while landing and taking off but, once she's moving she really moves. You will also need to setup your elevator and rudder trims to keep her in level flight. She's touchy to the elevator change and if you change 10Km/H you'll be changing the elevator trim to keep up. With the turbine at 8400 RPM I was able to get 682Km/H in level flight with trims alone. Again watch the Air Combat tutorial guide before attempting to start one on the ground. >S<
  9. They called it the Great Crusade (Operation Overlord). My Grandfather called it the day he lost a brother to the madness of mankind. My Grandfather Donald with the grace of God waded ashore on the beaches of Normandy at Utah Beach. He was an engineer. My grandfather was awarded a Purple heart for his wounds sustained in the leg while clearing an obstacle. His brother Ora was in the landings on Omaha beach. He made it to the bluffs before succumbing to wounds. He is buried in France. My Grandfather was again wounded later in April 1945. He returned home to a 196 square foot house where my Grandmother, mother, and aunt awaited him. It was located 280 miles north of Detroit (Were he was released from active duty). While hitchhiking home my Great Uncle just happened to be driving from Bay City and saw him on the road. A ride for the final last 100 miles going home. He never really had much in the way of possessions, and what he had he gladly shared with others. He was appointed the Postmaster of his small town (at the time pop:480), Along with the postmasters position the U.S. Government built him a home for his service on a small loan guarantee. As new people moved in to town they were always invited to dinner. It might have been venison, Fresh trout, or a recently butchered hog from my Great grandfathers farm. You never knew what was for dinner but it was always enough to feed more than those that sat at his table. He knew everybody and I do mean everybody and everybody knew him. When he retired from the Postal Service the towns population was 2400. Everybody knew him. Nobody ever said a bad thing about my Grandfather. He passed away in 1991 and I miss him to this day. He's my hero and I try to be more like him every day.
  10. If you bail out of an aircraft you also will not lose a life. It's only when you die in the cockpit or are killed in your chute. Last map I had 1 death early with 4 ditched or crashed and 2 bail outs the rest of the map and was still at 3 lives near the end of the map. CAP engage and run if you get any damage and you'll be fine.

  16. I did some math with the help of the TAW stats pages. The top 5 fighters all have more than 20 hours in the game since the server started on Sunday. That was 89 hours ago. The time played by those players equates to more than 7 hours a day in flight on the server. One player had what equated to more than 8 hours per day on the server. These are professional gamer times being mustered up here. They are playing what is damn near a full time job. And TAW wants to punish us for having a life outside the game. For those of you with acess to their forums I ask you go read my last post on page 338 and you'll see the frustration that is seen by everyone that posts about problems. It's a good read. >S< Ogg
  17. Talking with Beazil, He feels we should find another server to be active on with all the changes being made by TAW. I'm not sure how many of us feel this way. After reading the change log and looking at the community size I'm not so sure I disagree with him. some of the processes that worry us are as follows. penalty for death = Waiting a penalty phase to respawn while the person who killed you can reset and await your return. penalty for being on a large group (spawn limits or balance algorithm) = squad could be split waiting to spawn because of lack of Enemy on the server. 25 friendly on the server and 20 enemy by their example means only 3 JG51 members would be allowed to fly until more Allied players joined. As with Moostafa the 3 lives rule = a penalty for a death in flight whether stupid or meaningful. We're already penalized for the loss of life with time out phase as well as aircraft lost phase. Please feel free to add any complaints or concerns on this subject in this thread. >S<
  18. Moostafa, I have been following the TAW forum thread and it appears you are not alone with your concern. In the 20+ posts since the changelog was posted there are more than 10 about the exploitation of ground attack going to lose players making movement of the maps irrelevant in participation. Meaning no one will run ground attack because of the easy losses of aircraft during high traffic days. They won't fly GA anymore. Also with the concern of Vultching an airfield and killing entire sides on the field because the AI is inadequate. Unfortunately it's the games we are stuck with but it may be the changes that kill TAW in lieu of Combat Box.
  19. three live in one map (2 hour time frame) would deplete your aircraft rather quickly anyway.
  20. Change log: Improved AA in the depots and airfields. After many tests we have impression that devs have changed AA some time ago and now it’s not as effective as before. I’m going to report bug about AA because spawned AA (used in TAW) behaves different that normal AA. New durability for buildings and vehicles provided by developers. But after tests we think there are bugs because you can still destroy hangar with 50kg bomb. I’m going to report this as well. To reduce number of “suicidal” sorties there are 3 lives for each map (there are 8 maps in total during the campaign). If pilot dies, captured or disco his live counter is reduced by: 1 when he is in bigger team X when he is in smaller team where X = #smaller_team/#bigger_team. Example: Axis players: 28, Allied players: 20 so X for Allied is 20/28 = 0.71. Every time “Lives on map” counter (shown in pilots hangar) <= 0 then pilot has 24 hours time penalty. After this penalty counter is increased by 1 so he may fly again. Improved “balancer” algorithm. Number of pilots on one side depends on number of pilots on the other side. In general the ratio shouldn’t be bigger than 40%. Example: one team has 20 players so the other may have 20*140% = 28. For small number of players (below 10) the limit for other side is about 10. Max number of players for each side is 45 as before. Queue system: after spawning on the airfield pilot is moved to: Active list if there are free slots for that side (no over limit message). Pilot is clear to take off. Waiting queue if there aren’t any free slots (over limit message). Pilot is not clear to take off and have to wait. He gets his position in the queue on the chat and must return to the briefing. As soon as there is free slot on that side pilot is automatically moved to the Active list and he is clear to take off (message on the chat). You can check your actual position in the queue by spawning on the airfield again. If Active list is full and there are waiting pilots in the queue then pilots with sortie different than ‘Landed’ or ‘On the ground’ are moved to Waiting queue on the last position creating free slot for others in Active list. This should make faster rotation between Active and Waiting players. Note: number of players on the web site includes all players on the server also spectators and waiting pilots. There is also additional queue for donators who have donated TAW server. This queue has bigger priority over Waiting queue so donator will wait much shorter to be clear to take off is team is full. Thank you for all donates! Without them there would be no TAW at all. There is also additional queue for admins with highest priority. Axis may capture max 2 cities by paratroopers per map. If your aircraft is damaged more than 30% then after landing it’s not available in the current and next mission. If server is full and there is big difference between players spectators or waiting pilots on the last position is kicked to enable joining pilot from the smaller team. New front-line algorithm with about 2km error. The previous one in some cases could have even 20km error. Bailing out or crashing near enemy depot or airfield equals captured sortie. On the other hand the further you bailout/crash from the enemy positions the lower is probability of being captured. Spanish translation thanks to E69_Qpassa . Remember to register on taw-server.de/spa to see briefing and messages in Spanish during the game. Improved clouds. Lower base level during overcast, slightly more two layers clouds (work in progress)
  21. Please go to http://taw-server.de/index.php hit register in the upper right corner. check fighters and axis side then click OK Then come back here and post so Moostafa can put you in the squad for our stats. Thank you. Let's fight to live. Last campaign we ended at #36. Let's raise the bar again. >S< Ogg

If you don't have a Newegg account at least get one just to sign up for the newsletters. You never know when and what they are having a sale on. Just our rigs alone are close to $100.00 off just from this sale. C5s AMD system close to $900.00 My Intel system close to $950.00 Big box and retail can't compare to the systems performance when it's completed.
  23. Thanks C5. That's an interesting build. About a $40.00 difference. Hex core 2.9 intel V hex core 3.6 AMD systems. I haven't used an AMD GPU in a long time (Radeon 5830) on a windows 7 machine. And yes I've heard some very good things about the Ryzen processors on Linus Tech Tips so I wouldn't doubt it being a fast mofo. Again something to look at for anyone building or needing a new system. Better to build than buy a box. >S<
