When I want to play IL-2 Sturmovik I go through the following process....

1) Starting CH Control Manager
2) Load a map
3) Download this map to make it active
4) Open TrackIR program
5) Start IL2-Sturmovik

Is it possible somehow to automate this process??

Best Regards
Lars

Lars:

Yes, indeed. For CH Control Manager, you need to have another program called CM Control Center. I found it here as part of the CH Manager Utility Pack:

http://www.billybishop.net/RedBaron3D/CH-CMCC_v35.exe

(use at your own risk). You can set the CM Control Center to start automatically at system startup, and automatically load the last Control Manager map. This is what I use.

For everything else, I use FS Autostart by Ken Salter, a great program which lets you start up IL2, TIR and anything else you want to run with one double click. Get it here:

Good luck.

I wasn't sure about that. Good catch, slipBall.

It's not complicated. Look in the CH folder in program Files. Find an icon named CM Start - drag it to Start/ Programs/ Startup.

TrackIR. In the GUI, select Options, check Run at Startup, Run Mimimised, and Close to Tray.

I don't understand steps 2) and 3). Are those steps something to do with the CH controls, or IL2-Sturmovik?

I think it would be possible to make a batch program that would execute those steps in that order.
