My expectations are based upon bull droppings and myth, nothing matches what's going on in PF.

I hop into a F4U Corsair with 100% Fuel, 8 HVARs, a drop tank and a 2000lb bomb, and I can't even takeoff from the carrier. WTF? Corsairs should be able to takeoff from a carrier going 5 knots and carrying 20,000lbs of ordiance! I have to make the carrier go at least 40 knots into the wind and fly at max power just to takeoff!

Furthermore, I can't even turn with the Ki-43 Oscar with this load! I thought the Corsair had a 4,500shp Turboshaft! Corsairs shot down japanese planes by the thousands, why can't I?

I'm wild about realism, even though I haven't even driven a car much less fly a plane and everything is off.

Online, it's even worse. Everybody bans the Corsair, I can't find it on the Blue team at all. Just these japanese planes that always kick my ***. I fly these planes but everybody is mean to me and I takeoff, fly for a hour and my tail is shot off! They had to be cheating. Why is cheating so rampant in this game??!!

I also get tons of stutters, running New Guinea on perfect mode. I can barely get 2FPS! Isn't a Gerbil 64 powerful enough to run this game?

Lastly, rather than doing a logical action, I'm going to go write a review about how this game sucks so much and gripe on the official forum about it.

I agree with a few of your comments however a Corsair could not turn with a Ki-43. You shouldn't be turnfighting at all in a Corsair vs. most of the Japanese planes. That could be a huge part of your problem. Secondly, if your fighting a Ki-43, just let him empty his rounds into your Corsair. He might chip your window, that is about it.

If I have any complaints from a Japanese point of view in Single Player, it is being outnumbered. Yes, this is somewhat historical but I took a Ki-43 pilot career and can't survive the first mission to save my life. It starts on Tarawa, I think I have 8 on my side and the allieds just keep sending waves of planes. I fought a ton of them off, eventually ran out of ammo, and lost all of my team mates. As I head back to land, another swarm of Allies attack and kill me as I am landing.

Even on some other pilot career missions that I survive, I tend to always be the only one. My team mates hardly ever come back.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif203Ku_Takasaki... I was flying with the Ki-43 againest an Allied Airfield.
About the only thing I was able to destroy was the Ki-43 with a Bad landing on my part.
I might have done better if the BB's I was using had Depleted Urainium Centers... but these were Regular IJA issue Steel Jacketed BB's.
I emptyed everything at this one lonely P-40 and all it did was stop it from taking off. 4 passes and it was still warming up on the runway.
I say this about the Ki-43... one Hec of a Acrobatic Machine... flies like a dream... but don't waste the BB's on a target. You'd be better off with Snow Balls!

I think the Gerbil64 could be the source of your problems. I'm sorry, but its 6 months old and totally superceded by the Gerbil64GM (genetically modified) series offering nearly 5% more chomping cycles per session and a near 7% increase in cyclic wheel rotation algorithms.

Also, have you updated your drivers? I think this could help with being shot down.

did you try flying with your wings folded? Less lift = less drag and therefore more speed. Also, for computer speed check that your gerbils is facing the correct way in the wheel .I experienced fram drops when my gerbil was running the wrong direction...and I got satanic messages on the subtitles... Also, when landing the corsair...extend the gear halfway. The wheels will be perpendicular to the flight path giving very effective braking action. Also, my main complaint...when I fly a plane in real life, I get no stutters even when many planes are in the air and the scenery is set on perfect...water still looks flat though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hm. Even recognizing the sarcasm in this first posting, there is a bit of truth in it.

Let me say, the corsair is one of my most favorite airplanes ever. With the 190 it holds the top of my list. And I was eager to fly this supposedly difficult to control bird. Become one of the few able to master it. But that's not going to happen.

It's so darn easy to fly, it's simply no fun anymore. Everybody flies it. Last night in a server every single guy took a Corsair. I was the only one in a Lighting (my second fav american ride).

New to PF and have some basic dumb questions. My FS background so you will know I'm not new to sims. I have been flying both commercial/combat sims dating back to "ATP" & "Battle Hawks 42". Still at it MSFS9/CFS2,3.
I'm not going to complain about PF, just have some basic questions.
1) I'm using the "Logitec,wireless mouse & KB. Mouse works fine.KB probs. may not be the KB. Sometimes when I hit the "G" key for gear down nothing happens. When I hit the"B" key to release wheel brakes nothing happens.I do not see any lever move in the cockpit or get any indication is has been released.
2) I try to take off from the carrier deck both in IJN/USN, plane just sits there. Run throttle up 100 % and all I get is engine overheat warnings.These are very basic operations and I am assuming it's me. However the cockpit and or HUD tell me nothing. I'll stop there for now on the flying part.
3) I keep reading posts on FPS but do not know how to display them in this sim.Also I tried reading the gages looking for fuel.
I'm used to flying sims with all this info available from the get go without it being hard to find.
I have had the sim for only a week, still trying to figure these questions out.
I have put in thousands of hrs. flying sims. I feel rather stupid on asking these questions.
This or any other sim should not be this confusing for the sake of jumping in to the cockpit and take off for a check ride.
I have some others but will hold off until I resolve thse basic questions

Thanks

Aero_Shodanjo - I seem to be getting around just fine by driving illegally. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif

greyeagle - some planes have manually retracting gear, a la F4F Wildcat. You need to assign keys to manually lower and retract gear.

The brakes are different from the chocks; you need to assign a key to "Toggle Chocks" and use that to takeoff from a carrier. You won't need to apply brakes when landing on a carrier, but for ground based planes you'll need to hold down the key to activate the brakes. You'll know they're on because you'll hear a squeeking sound associated with the brakes.

You can get your FPS in the game like this:

While flying, hit shift+TAB - this will momentarily pause the game and bring up the console. Type fps START SHOW (exactly like that with caps) and you'll get a FPS indicator. Hit shift+TAB again to close the console and resume flying.

Bummer... after reading this post one would question buying this game, until the re-read it. Full fuel? Rockets? Centerline tank? And he "wants to turn with a Ki"?? WOW! If the Corsair could do that we never would have dropped the A-bomb! I guess I am just old skewl, from an old game, but I have "flown" Aces High and War Birds as well, and none of them will let you turn with a Ki, if you are in a Corsair!

You have to use the real tactics that were sucessful in these planes. Afterall that is what I hope the designers went by when they developed this game. Actaul data, and tactics that is. Boom and zoom, might take awhile until you learn the sweet spot, but nothing is ever easy.

[QUOTE]Originally posted by greyeagle1935:
New to PF and have some basic dumb questions. My FS background so you will know I'm not new to sims. I have been flying both commercial/combat sims dating back to "ATP" & "Battle Hawks 42". Still at it MSFS9/CFS2,3.
I'm not going to complain about PF, just have some basic questions.
1) I'm using the "Logitec,wireless mouse & KB. Mouse works fine.KB probs. may not be the KB. Sometimes when I hit the "G" key for gear down nothing happens. When I hit the"B" key to release wheel brakes nothing happens.I do not see any lever move in the cockpit or get any indication is has been released.
2) I try to take off from the carrier deck both in IJN/USN, plane just sits there. Run throttle up 100 % and all I get is engine overheat warnings.These are very basic operations and I am assuming it's me. However the cockpit and or HUD tell me nothing. I'll stop there for now on the flying part.
3) I keep reading posts on FPS but do not know how to display them in this sim.Also I tried reading the gages looking for fuel.
I'm used to flying sims with all this info available from the get go without it being hard to find.
I have had the sim for only a week, still trying to figure these questions out.
I have put in thousands of hrs. flying sims. I feel rather stupid on asking these questions.
This or any other sim should not be this confusing for the sake of jumping in to the cockpit and take off for a check ride.
I have some others but will hold off until I resolve thse basic questions

A read me file usually helps or mabee you take a look at controls option..You cant take- off because your wheel are chocked..release chock first..Wildcat has manual landing gear that,s why your g button doesnt work..

I would give you more credit if it was an original idea! But since you just rehashed Mutt's original post, then your cool points go way way down.

I think your success is based more on the typical UBI fish. Which is why I love to troll in here. Its so easy and plentiful.
