Hi guys,

Just bought IL2 FB and have no clue whatsoever what I'm doing, but having a great time.. However 2 questions which are not covered in the manual or key setups are driving me insane (your gonna laugh im sure!)

1. How do i 'end' a mission? I have put it on fast forward for ages, I have completed everything I'm supposed to do.. yet the mission does not end?? is that supposed to happen?

2. Is there a 'skip to action' key press in IL2, because I think the game is wonderful, except we havn't all got 20 minutes while we watch it all in quick motion (8 speed) while the planes go out and travel and then come back to an airfield thats crowded and they have to go round and round 20 times until they can land.. I dont want to wait, I want to play!

Any help here appreciated, and thx in advance.

To end a mission simply hit Esc. and click End Mission after you achieved your objectives.

No there's no skip to action key. That's what fast forward coupled with autopilot is for.

There is no time skip in FB but there is in Pacific Fighters, skips you to the next waypoint, perfect for those long missions out to sea. Oh and pick up AEP, lots more planes and maps and goodies there.. then go out and get PF.. even more goodies despite all the players that whine about it.

When you have completed a mission and are arriving your base, you don't have to wait for your turn in order to land. Just land on your base, slow down the plane to a complete halt, and the text "Mission Complete" or something like that should appear. If you ask for permission to land, and are told to abort the landing, just land anyway. Keep in mind that if you are told to abort, there is probably another plane on the runway, or about to land. Chrashing into these will ofcourse ruin your sucsess. After stopping the plane, hit 'Esc' and 'Apply' or something like that. I'm at work right now, so I can't check exactly what the phrases are.
