Yeah me too !Just one of the myriad of things about this game that were never explained 'officially' eg turning rudder while pressing b for brakes gives you directional control while taxi-ing and the points scale for destroying ships/tanks etc online ...Theres a load of these -what other good ones are there worth revealing?!
Macchi 'night sight' and oh yeah the P51 'ace maker' sight -some serious veterans dont even know about that and if they DO know it floats around a bit they sure as heck dont realise that you can manually 'set' it to different planes wingspans eg Ju87/Fw190 etc ....
Never mind the German gunsight or chocks dilemmas of noobs what other unknown gems are there hidden in IL2?
Did you all know that cannon fire (usually IL2 37mm or 4xHispano 20mm)can completely destroy small patrol ships and 'finish off' smoking cargo ships?
What about the mysteries of fuel gauges 'over your left shoulder' in P51s?
Its a life long learning experience IL2!
Instant Success???Hmmm I dont have a clue !

It's all in the manual (page 41):

No Instant Success: If this option is enabled, you have to complete each mission before continuing to the next. If this option is disabled, then you may begin the next mission even if you havenít completed your current mission.

No Instant Success:

ON = Win the mission, fly back to home and land.

OFF = Win the mission, hit ESC, quit and load the next.

It's R_Target's sig by the way but very appropiate in this case.

I think basically it's that if you're flying a campaign mission, you have to complete your objectives and get the "MISSION COMPLETE" message flashing on your screen. Then you can hit escape to quit the mission and hit "apply" to move on to the next mission (provided you returned to your side of the map)

If you have instant success, you can quit the mission at any time and hit apply and move to the next mission whether you completed the objective or not.

I would say that the sig is there because it is more Realistic (for Full switch campaign, etc) to have "No Instant Success" off. When it is on, and thus "Full Real" you are not allowed to progress to the next mission unless you have completed the minimum objectives and have landed and parked safely. However, in reality, it's more likely that you won't even find the target, much less destroy all of it, so it's best to leave it off. But then we can't have "full real" anymore http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
If it were like as it is in the Sig, the switch would be on, while Instant Success would be off, hence, "No Instant Success Not On"

I'm just happy that raaaid and this sig have been united in one thread.

He'll solve it.

You are pretty much correct. When the light is on, the function is on, so it basically means instant success on (not exactly, but that's the idea anyway). It is more realistic to have "instant success on" than the game's "no instant success". So, ironically, you have to turn one switch off when playing "full switch" to play more realistically.

So we're not disagreeing that No Instant Success not on is not unrealistic?

No instant success + , not on - , another words when lamp is light it is - when lamp is shut off it is +.

legend:
+ - No insta success is OFF
- - No insta success is ON

...this being the R0NNC0's version, in-game version is just reversedhttp://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif.

No instant success definitely isn't realistic because many times when you bail (i.e. not returned to a friendly base) you will need to repeat the mission regardless if you weren't captured (during bailout).
