Went online for the first time tonight.

WOW! What fun!!

First, I've never played ANYTHING online before.

Second, after a month and a half of practice, practice, practice, I got my first air-to-air kill! (Of course I got shot down, alot, but oh well).

Thanks to all who gave me advice, all the posters who gave advice to others that I read and all the links posted by this fine community that gave me the reading material that gave me more knowledge on my first mission.
Jeez, I've got a long way to go though)

You guys are great! Thanks again.


Now flying

in hyperlobby as Vlad_TheImpaler

P.S. Green Helmet, Warrior and the rest, thanks for a great time! Wish I could remember all the names of the flyers on the server.

You've obviously seen the sign! I love it too, the only problem being a 800 ping due to sateliteconnection between Greenland and the rest of the world.

I usually play on UBI, since I've heard a bunch of bad things about HL..... Are there anything in these rumours??

I don't know about Ubi. Went there once and no one was playing IL-2. Most have gone to Forgotton Battles.
I have heard that some on Ubi were vulchers and rude, but I really don't know. I should try it I suppose.

I took the advice of the community and went to:

http://hyperfighter.jinak.cz/index.php

downloaded the client and went at it. The host was cool, no one vulched me (and I returned the favor, don't like the concept of vulching anyway) and had a ton o'fun.

What surprised me most was fighting against human pilots was easier than I expected. Not that I'm anywhere near a great pilot. I'm an even worse shot (except for once). I guess the AI are pretty tough. I always play offline against Veteren or Ace pilots. Keeps you on your toes.

I'll look for you tommorrow on HL at 2000 hrs, PDT (GMT-8:00) if you're around.

I remember my first time...

It was in the fall and I had skipped school. It was overcast and brisk outside. The wind was rattling the windows and causing the flames on the candles to flicker. Soft music was playing in the background. I wasn't quite sure what to do or what to expect but I had dreamt about this day for such a long time and wanted it with all my heart and soul. I tried to speak but couldn't. I found myself naked and being straddled as she grabbed my joystick and guided it into her... WAIT! You mean the first time you flew online? I saw the subject and assumed something else entirely. Sorry, my bad.

BTW, Her name was Jennifer and she was a beautiful blonde angel.

Figured I would get at least one response like that.

What can you do?

As Led Zepplin said..."Nobody's fault but mine."

That's the first thing I thought when I saw that subject text.

Anyway, the first time I played online against a human was either in Quake, Half-Life, Tribes or Rainbow Sixot sure which any more but in was a FPS. Since then I haven't looked back. Online, even with the lag is the way to play. I'm very thankful for my broadband connection.

Congrats on your first online kill, may there be many more.

Are you married or do you have a girlfriend? If so, be prepared for some expensive makeup gifts/therapy sessions since you are now doomed to fall prey to FB's addictiion-causing nature. It's too late, you can't escape!!! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

My wife said "A very smart person." /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

My pocketbook says "OUCH!" /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

I'm going to build a second PC just for her. My wife plays Bloodrayne, Postal 2, NOLF/NOLF2, Half-Life and Serious Sam. She let's me squeeze IL-2 in during the evening. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
