IL2 original, full version.

into 3rd mission of single player fighter. am using the default planes, they are fighters.
tested every pitch, elevator, flap setting.

rarely i can build up to 300 (never at low alt.), most of the time i use autopilot to the enemy but if im dogfighting and i go low and lose some speed thats it, 160 max at 200 ft and if i try to climb im stalling. yes, level gentle flight
throttle on max, flaps all the way up (confirmed), pitch on auto. what do i do land? i cant do anything else.
i have to restart
but then on mission 2 im sure i went low and slow at least once and i was going fast.
auto is flying in form at 400 at 200ft. im doing 160.

f--ked around all day, seriously is this game playable?

Try retracting your landing gear.

IL-2 original, was pretty serious in E retention, engine overheats and acceleration.

Just get the FB, friend. It's much better for your mental health.

I reckon you're losing energy mate just like kweassa says.
Don't get too close to stalling.

All that's needed is practice. (I don't mean that lightly - I know how frustrating this can be/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif )

I mean, I take it you've got take-off nailed now since you've not posted more questions about them...

Have you downloaded and installed the patches? Also check that the game is responding to the stick properly in the hardware setup.

i swear its got to be some switch.
thats with flight realism settings turned off too.
landing gear is up.

when its going right , after using auto , i can go at level flight and gain speed - 200 -210 -220 , raises every few secs i shoot planes down mission ends

stable level flight when the magic somthing hasnt been hit 160 - 160 -160.....
meanwhile saurkraut is the staple diet of moscow.
realistic sims do not require you to autopilot.

this time i took off (its paused) i lifted off at 170 normally i do at 160 and the speed is rising steadily im at 300 and im not to far away.
theres a dodgy mechanic thats rostered on every second flight.

Yeah, you need to check that Personnel Department of yours. How did they let that mechanic get hired anyway? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Seriously, Your problem seems a little weird. Try patching the game. Go to;

http://www.mudmovers.com/Sims/IL2/il2_main.htm

You will find the patches you need about 1/2 way down the page.
This is also a great site for info about IL-2 Sturmovick.

Many will say "just get Forgotten Battles". You should but...IL-2 is a fine sim. I played it before I got FB. I learned alot from it. The biggest drawback to IL-2 (other than there are more planes in FB) Is that few people play it online. Most are playing FB. If you're not into online playing, check out the Mudmovers site for some great Campagins and Missions you can add to IL-2.

Good luck and let us know if you encounter further problems.

We're here to help.
