View Full Version : Them crazy P-38 pilots!

05-07-2007, 09:40 PM
I have only had 1946 for a week so this is just based on a few days observation.

I like to play 'Big Week with single fanatic Nazi in his prototype Me262'. So I set up a bunch of B-17s and at least 12 Escorts. And Krazy Kuntz in his Me262.

So just about all the time, after the first pass and 1 exploded B-17, Krazy Kuntz will be pushing his 004Bs to the max as the whole horde of P51s/P38s/P47s will be after his arse.

Now, I seem to get this only with the P38s. The closest guy tends to blow up (I am assuming the guy behind shot him). A bit later, the guy next in line blows up!

Seems to happen with the P-38s. I don't see it with the P-51s or P47s.

Are you sure was only one "Krazy Kuntz" in that mission?

It's caused by a rip in the fabric of space-time, caused by the 262 flying around a few months too early.

Yup, only one. Not enough combat worthy pre-production Me262s to go around so Fanatik Fritz and Looney Lutz had to sit out the missions.

What is Track? A logging program? Haven't downloaded all those toys yet. Still trying to understand the DCG thingy I downloaded.

I mean the in-game track-recording feature.
If you dont know how to use it, here it is:
after flying a mission, you can -refly it, -accept the results and -save the track. Click on the Track-Save button and give the track a name.
You can then view it in the records section in the IL-2 main menu.
But with this method the tracks are only recorded in .trk format. They can only be played on the same version of the game and are more likely to have some error in them, resulting in the track taking a completely other course that the combat it was recorded from. But i rarely get that.
The other method of recording tracks is in the .ntrk format, for that you must assign a button in the controls menu under "start record" or so i think.
Those tracks will very seldom fail and can be played on many versions of the game.

Sorry if you knew some of that already, but just in case you will do now http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Ah, and the tracks can be found in the records folder which is in the game folder. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
