Hooray!! The Betty's are coming, The Betty's are coming!

02-18-2005, 10:48 AM
Looks very nice!! Does this betty have the 20mm defensive canon(s) in the tail? I've read a few P-38 pilot accounts where they were caught off guard by it's firepower.

very impressive shots of the Betty http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

pics G4M1_Cockpit_13 and G4M1_Cockpit_15 which I take to be the rear gun position are especially interesting as this position does not look like a regular rear gun turret, but appears to be aimed in quite a different way, with the gun mounting rotating in a different plane than on a standard turret.

It will be interesting to see how this works when the Betty is released.

02-18-2005, 11:48 AM
I've seen the pics of the Betty's defensive positions and noted that the Machine guns look exactly like a Lewis Machine gun as was mounted on British and French aircraft during WW1 as in the S.E.5 and Neiuport Fighters where they fired over the propeller arc. I find this interesting that they were still using old technology for the time

Disappointed. There appears to be no rolling pencil on the Betty's map table. The lack of pencil-modeling is a serious omission, the Russians with their superior pencil rollrate TB3 will continue to dominate.

But seriously, I can't wait for the update much longer!

I have to laugh...

After all the hullabaloo about the Betty, I have to admit I was expecting some fantastic aircraft unlike anything else. Can't help but chuckle after all the whining I've seen on this forum. I often feel sorry for Oleg, who puts up with a lot of cr@p from ungrateful fliers.

I do, however, appreciate the updates. Like others on the forum, I'm quite happy with everyting already, and consider ANY updates/patches as gravy on an already great program. I don't mind the wait at all...

There, I've said it. Let the "fan boy" comments begin!!

Thanks for the updates.

Didn't Oleg suggest mid-March? Might not please everyone but I'd rather wait for an un-rushed article.

Quote from Oleg (link to full post in thread below this one):

"Only the limit of time frame that we have ask us to completely finish these (and some other planes) till mid of the next month (march) and only in prefect conditions (100% without bugs)."

And now a return to the scheduled broadcast.

I love flyable bombers, it gives the less talented pilots (i.e. me) something to fly online - just load up, fly up (and up and up) over friendly ground, then cruise over the enemy airbase at 30,000ft and drop bombs on them...

Oh. Except I can't bomb accurately. So, I fly over in the He-111 at 3000m and then dive on to the field with 2 2000kg bombs with a delay charge, drop the bombs in the vicinity of someone taking off, then return to base with about half an engine remaining...

"Only the limit of time frame that we have ask us to completely finish these (and some other planes) till mid of the next month (march) and only in prefect conditions (100% without bugs)."

Mid March? Yes!

That "Yes" is only if "prefect conditions (100% without bugs"

And as in other post most of the team are now working on BOB , that 100% without bugs ...

Would suggest to me that MID MARCH is not on!

Bottom line this has been handed over to a "small team" and the rest are working on BOB!

I'll say MAY and even then I would not hold that much hope out! If it come before then I will bet 10 to charity that it has bugs in it!

Hi mate, go into the config file in the main IL2 folder and look for the command 3dgunners=0, change the value to 3dgunners=1 and you should get gunners at all anti aircraft stations in game....Enjoy!!

02-26-2005, 10:58 AM
Thank you TROOPER117!

02-26-2005, 11:55 AM
TROOPER177 i can't find confing folder are you sure this is right directory for Pacific Fighters without Il2- Sturmovnik forgoten Battles?

02-26-2005, 02:42 PM
Hi Masaker, I've got a merged install, but if you look in your main PF directory you will see lots of different folders. Scroll down until you find a file called conf. Double click on it and you should open and the heading at the top should say conf notepad! Scroll down until you find the command line 3dgunners and change the value from 0 to 1.
Hope this helps mate!

02-27-2005, 06:20 AM
TROOPER117 there is no file named 3dgunners=0 in conf notepad. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif But thanks anyway... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

02-27-2005, 04:45 PM
masaker, you need to go into the "Config.ini" file in your game folder, and if there is no 3Dgunners=0, then you have to add that line under the heading [Game] within the Config.ini file http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just be sure to change 3dgunners=0 to 3Dgunners=1 for the people to show up http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

02-28-2005, 07:14 AM

02-28-2005, 12:18 PM
lol, okay..

You just have Pacific Fighters installed correct?

Go into the folder where you have Pacific Fighters installed then... You should then see a whole lot of files and folders. You need to look for the file in your game folder called "Config.ini" You could probably do a search for it in your windows start menu if you have trouble seeing it.

but you need to find one named Config.ini Once you do that, double click on it and open it up to take a look at it, you'll probably find a lot of confusing stuff but just ignore that for now. You need to find within this file a section that says the following:


Well, you get the idea, now what you want to do is put the following line under that game heading.

3dgunners=1 so that it then looks like this:


Then it should work, if not then you may want to take a look at this forum for more help http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I see the descriptions but no images or links, just links to the 1-29 pages
