Hello Ivan ,
The Tirpitz addon is fantastic but i am having big performance probs when i try including it in missions...right about the time it opens up with its light AA defence.
I have seen posts regarding the smoke effect from the tracer fire and think it should have been implemented into the difficulty settings , to be able to turn it on and off as i believe this would give a playable boost to the performance for most .
I doubt very much if anyone will make an online "Sink the Tirpitz" co-op mission due to the horrible lag when attacking it in numbers.

Please allow us to adjust the effects level on single player mode at least , its not often an enemy plane will spit that volume of lead.

it is taxing on the system, but flying around it is no real problem for me. Your video card is really holding you back, the gf4mx is in no way a gaming video card. If game developers wrote games to be perfectly playable on every piece of hardware we would be stuck with CFS1.

Hi Orsonical... i guess you adressing me... maybe we need Ivan Ready Room, eh? Just kidding... Killa is correct, your video card is holding you back and Tirpitz is massive moving object. What you can do...is make it static and that will change things big time. Personaly I don`t have problems with it, due to relatively high end system...but i completely understand your conserns. Try running game on OpenGL, it`s faster actually then D3D. And if you can... get read of that MX card... say FX5700 and up or ATI 9500 and up will make a world of difference. Just my 02c.

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

I somehow thought you may be Oleg's incarnation on these forums , traveling amongst his people as it were.

*Hangs head and with a prepares a few words to say over my poor Mx's dead body*

But will there still be a possibility of adding a difficulty setting to take away the bullet trails ? Personally i think they detract from the whole game and believe it could look better with just the tracer alone .
While playing in a multi player envoronment suits having them turned on...for max realism i would like to be able to remove them in single player missions etc.

Actually the test mission in question was

The Tirpitz with 2 coastal defence and 1 M class sailing towards a small Russian fleet of 6 ships from Battleship downwards , plus 2 wings of 4 IL2 T's and 2 SPB's , it virtually locks up when i dive on target from SPB but frees up when i change the game speed , great...i get blown up in slow mo instead! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Woa...so many ships...

Well i`ll ask Oleg about this option...but i highly doubt there will be promissing answer mate. This game is really oriented on above average hardware. Which you have...with exception of video card http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

fps increases when you slow down time speed.

That is CPU issue not grafix card.

Send wingmen to attack target ship and you fly away so you never see the ship fire and you still may see fps drop. That is CPU calculating all the AA fire. I had this happen to me when I set up test mission with 4 Nairobi (sp?) AA ships and a flight of 4 AI P11c flying over them and me on the other side of map in Me~262 -- just to test fps in cockpit -- and the fps dropped to Zero when Nairobis were firing at P11 and me on other side of map 100km away. As soon as ships stopped firing, fps went back upUpUP.

Luthor... you think 2 Ghz CPU is not good enough to chew on few ships?

Little OT,

I tried to take out Tirpitz with 5k bomb dropped from PE-8. I did kind of Kamikadze run, dropping full speed from 2000m down to the ship, dropping the Father-of-all-bombs-in-FB just on the upper deck. Yup, I got blown up, the bomb did its huge blast, but amazingly, Tirpitz remained unscratched firing AAA all over the sky (my wingmen/gapers http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif were really surprised) Huh tough luck.

Completly right about the FPS , even when i am no where near the Tirpitz it all slows down to an unblayable level when it opens up with its light AA.

One more thing i wondered was why AA does not subscribe to the realistic gunnery option , and has no parabolic arc at all.
This is to say it flies straight and true without deviation.

I have ~2 GHz chip, and it chokes on ship AA. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The distinguishing experiment to tell is if--during severe fps drops--you slow down time speed and fps increases, then CPU is choking. If you slow down time speed and fps stays the same, grafix card is choking.

My FPS does not drop because I have a fast computer. Instead of worrying about my FPS I am worrying about being turned into a bloody pudding by some four 20mm quad guns facing my direction.
