View Full Version : IL-2 1946 view question.

Hi, I was wondering on the views how you get like the external view, only with the plane bouncing up and down and all around, or is that just on the older versions. Thanks.

huh? external view is F2 or Ctrl+F2 (enemy external) or Shift+F2 (friendly external)

I never had any plane bounce around when switching to any view. Musta been you doing something wrong http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I know what the view keys are, and in a lot of IL-2 1946 movies the planes are bouncing around, allmost like you were looking from another plane. I did that a while back, but now I can't figure out how I did it. Also, on a lot of the movies, they show the cockpit of like 4 different planes while flying, how do you do that?

Oh, and I also remember the camera shaking when you would do a fly by of your plane.

The shaking is an added effect in the movie-making software.

Multiple cockpit views are obtained by flying the mission scenario a number of times from different planes. That is, a number of versions of the same mission are made.

In the end, the better movies are all about taking LOTS of time and effort, combined with good editing. Don't let these movies lure you into thinking you can easily obtain similar results during normal gameplay.

One more thing, this really doesn't belong with this discussion, but I don't want to make a new thread just for it. Does IL-2 1946 have some sort of fps limiter? I have a computer with 2gb of ddr2, E6750, and an nvidia 9600GT. My frames on the game never go above 60, they just sit at 60.

Probably, Vsync is set to on. That limits the frame rate to the monitor's refresh rate.
You can change it to Off in NVidia's control panel.
Vsync is usefull when using TrackIr, to prevent tearing.

Ah. Ok, that makes sense, I didn't even think about that. Thanks!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
