Hi all,

I havent played IL2 in a while (many many months) and finally got a new pc which is more up to the task (I used to not be able to fly the finland map due to ram issues etc) and am wondering how to get the best out of the graphics for my setup.

I have a core 2 at 3.00 Ghz, 2 gig od ram and a 8800gt slightly oc'd (by manufacturer, I still have no idea how to do that safely!)

So I have been messing with the config.ini and have a couple of problems:

1) I have a strange bug at the bottom of the screen, it seems to kind of flicker or is like a bar which is turning, its difficult to explain.

2) When I use my native resolution for my lcd (1280x1024) black bars appear at the top and bottom.

I am running in opengl mode (As I heard thats better).

If I post my conf.ini, would it be possible for someone to give me a hand to get the best quality graphics for my pc (IL2 is patched up).

The conf.ini will follow in the next post.


han you very much for your help in advance (I always think IL2 has one of the best online communities) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Set SaveAspect=0, that should help with the resolution. Everything else looks about right (effect=2 may be a bit much, even for the 8800gt), the glitch at the bottom, let us know if that goes away when SaveAspect is set to =0, if it's still there is may be a video driver setting or a system problem.

Thats done the trick! It looks amazing!

Thank you so much, Im really looking forward to playing this on a machine that can actually handle it, I might even be able to play the gulf of finland map!!

By the way, what does effect=2 do? I didnt notice any slowdown but I put it to 1 as suggested, in case that had anything to do with the glitch.

Effects=2 was experimental and was never fully optimized so it can bring even beastly systems to their knees at time. I don't recall exactly what it changes but it affects some of the lighting for explosions and fires etc. Try it both ways and see what comes out better for you.
