Just installed IL2 Sturmovik with up to date patches.Game seems to play okay , but the training tracks are all messed up , plane crashes in all but 1 track and plane movements are out of syc. with training text. On take-off track plane takesoff across runway and crashes into building. Any remedies?

This is a problem with the il2 fm the .trk replays only correct the version they were recorded. This is why in later versions of the game there is a new game version independed format ntrk. So when you use tracks from version 1.0 they work only in 1.0 or they do try to fly the same way in another fm version which mostly fails. In later versions it is not possible to play older files of .trk format for this reason. Another point can be that time acceleration can bring different results as precision goes down when using it for playback.

Hyperion's got it there. The original IL-2 Sturmovik's track files worked just fine from the start but once they started making changes the .TRK format would get out of sync as the files only store a few bits and pieces of what actually occurred.

In IL-2 Forgotten Battles and all subsequent versions there was a new format called NTRK which stores much more information. Case in point, the original training tracks still work quite well in IL-2 1946 (the final DVD release) with version 4.08 installed...and the tracks were made on FB 1.0.

So sadly ...no remedies I can think of. The newer editions solved this once they realized it was a problem.

Actually, there is a solution. You need to make a fresh install of the original version and do not put in any of the patches in. That way you can watch the tracks.

If you mean just the TRAINING videos: I never got these to work at all in the original IL2 game, they always played wrong.

Wow, that game is very very old mate.

Get yourself 'IL2 1946 edition' which includes all the more up-to-date games, 300 flyable planes.

If you do some research you will find out that the original IL2 Sturmovik is not updated any more.
