Have 1946 and doing my best to progress from arcade style play of flight sims to more realistic flying, aside from that I am not new to IL2 but I have a question as regards the Japanese campaigns, no matter what I cannot bail out, why?

Because the Japanese feared American chute-shooters.

There is a config.ini change you can make to allow the japanese to use the parashute from the beginning of the war...

Someone else will probably tell you were and how...
I read so many pages in the last few days to learn as much as I could, that I cannot tell forum from forum anymore... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
I swear I have it bookmarked im my il-2 folder, but so are 50 other pages...

Come now DooDah. Is it really that intimidating? It is supposed to be a fun game, not a stress inducing ordeal! Are you finding it that way?

Early on Japanese pilots tended to follow a code of honor for fighting. The old samurai ways were made new again in the battle for the air. Ultimately this meant not packing a parachute as it was meant to be a fight to the death.

This policy was later revised as attrition wore down the best and most experienced pilots leaving the Japanese Army and Navy in a critical situation in 1943 and moreso in 1944. By 1945 many pilots were trained just well enough for the kamikazi missions and fewer for standard combat ops.

So the game simulates this by not giving you a parachute in the early war as a Japanese pilot. Avoid enemy fire at all costs http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I am in total awe of this sim...
Overwhelmed by keys, keysetups and actually landing a spitfire 25lb without going nose over... Never mind shooting the enemy yet...
Asking around, sharing what I have learned, learning it the hard way, cockpit on...

Been flying for about two and a half weeks now... addicted...

Got me a trackir last week and use a msffb2 I had laying around...
Trust me, it's a good kind of stress http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

But I cannot for the life of me find the bookmark about the solution to this topicstarters question anymore... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Mate, get online, you have 10 times the fun as offline and learn sooo much faster.

A good place to start for Historical missions and planesets is the UKdedicated det of servers. All the maps and planesets are historical bar the odd 'what if' map.

The great thing is they have a server for everyone. :-

UKdedicated 1 has Icons on, NO cockpit,Externals enabled, padlock on - All else realistic.

UKded2 has Friendly Icons only, Cockpit always on, Externals enabled, padlock on. - All else realistic

Ukded3 has basically full real.

Therefore you can pick the settings you want.

MOst of hte other good servers tend to be full real settings, so as you are leanring you would be best to try Ukded1 or Ukded2 until you get used to things. Otherwise you will probably be overwhelmed.

334th server is also a good learning server if you are just beginning. The settings are the same as Ukded1, but rather than historical maps, they have a 'arena' style map with each side being able to pick any late war prop plane. ALso they have no map objectives or ground targets for either side, its simple dogfighting. Whereas UKded servers (and other historical) have ground targets for each side (Axis and Allies) and the first side to destroy the other ground targets win.

Once you feel confident at flying and fighting on Ukded1, Ukded2 or 334th server, then move onto harder settings http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Trust me, online is just fantastic.

Use Hyperlobby to browse servers and chat (beware of some morons in the chat of hyperlobby, some tend not to be helpful)

It's a good lesson to get online. On our servers we have that newbies fly with lights or wingsmoke on, so the old hands know not to blow them away. This give them a chance to get into V-RL combat.

You find that someone would ask you to shoot him down (if you can), and he'll show you how to avoid being shot down. You will fly into the ground many times, but this is the fun of it.

Lots of chatting about that kind of thing on UKded2 teamspeak.

As often a lot of people sit in the neutral channel and chats while dogfighting. You often have a conversation about just what happened afterwards.

Its good to know exactly what worked and what didnt from your opponent http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Teamspeak is the chat prog which you use to talk to other players.

You can find the UKded IP at their forums :-

I have teamspeak and hyperlobby installed and set up...
Added the ukdedicated teamspeak server to teamspeak...

Is having tailsmoke on (or cockpitlights on), a universal sign of beeing a newbie..?

If I recall correctly, add this line to conf.ini:

Use Parachutes
