Decided to have a look through some of my old IL-2 screenies. These are from July to November, 2002. Some things have changed, others haven't...

These shots harken back to my days with the Kyro I chipset. What a pleasure. Screen jaggies were the order of the day, which is greatly reduced in these pics because I reduced the image size with anti-aliasing. They're still often painfully obvious. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

These proud pics come from September, 2002.

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/screenblur.jpg
Fortunately, I have never had issues with my hardware. IL-2 always displayed fine!

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/il2_touchdown.jpg
Touchdown! Have a look at those jaggies and colors...

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/storch.jpg
Why, oh why can't we fly this? The humanity!

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/il2-storch_merge.jpg
At least we can attack it.

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/il2-chutist_post-storch.jpg
Best not to underestimate it if yer a newb tho.

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/storch_damage.jpg
Don't seem to have landed many cannon rounds...

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/109_misty_day.jpg
Mist! (You Germans keep that joke to yourselves now.)

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/storch_in_rain.jpg
Still discovering the various weather effects and finding aircraft without icons. Fun!

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/109_colors.jpg
And they said IL-2 isn't as colorful as CFS.

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/doh.jpg
Interestingly, one of the GIMP keyboard shortcuts I used to edit these images is Ctrl+E.

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/109_good_ta_see_ya.jpg
Oh, THIS mission... in the Kuban, you gotta go shoot down the 4 IL-2s. The best part was always this shot.

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/one_hit_the_silk.jpg
Hit the silk would be nicer to hear so often, if were coming from my wife.

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/109_day_in_the_office.jpg
Sigh. Nice graphics, anyway.

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/il2_one_hit_the_silk.jpg
Yurp.

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/run_away.jpg
Can't wait to hit the surf and get a hot-dog afterwards!

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/109_sevastopol.jpg
Actually, I don't think the Germans ever took Sevastopol, but I was just proud I knew its name.

http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/flightsims/images/il2screens/Sept_02/109_whats_the_landing_speed.jpg
Okay, you say I have to start earlier, and, and... wait, what's the approach speed again? Is that in kph?
