Today were were filming thru another players aircraft view, he was hitting the ground 30 meters behind me and caused damage and took down my plane. Could this have been a cheat or just a glitch. I always thought IL2 was cheat free.

Well... think about this... if you were in your car (one hell of a lot tougher structure than a plane) 30 meters from an explosion... especially if it was something that was carrying bombs and high test fuel, would you expect maybe to just need to wax your car afterwards? No bug, no cheat, just reality.

By the way, who told you this game is cheat free? They were sadly mistaken! However, there is much you can do with your settings and the host of a game can do with their settings to prevent the few cheats available.

LB, I think he meant the bullets where hitting 30m behind him.

If thats the case it was probably just good ole internet gameing. What one pilot sees through his screen, may not be exactly the same thing you see. This is called lag. He probably saw his bullets hitting you while you were just not seeing that.

This happens all the time. I have watched guys in external view with no chance of hitting me on a sharp angle(so I thought). It looked to me like his nose was at least 30 degrees behind my plane. But, He fires and hits me! Happens very often online.

Thanks for you replies. As far as lag goes I understand lag, I have played online flight sims and FPS for 5 yrs. The way we saw it was my Squad mate was filming from a external view outside of HIS plane. I left CFS2 because of all the cheats, we hoped that IL2 was more cheat free.

Hell, the hackers have figured out how to get around PunkBuster in BF1942 and BFV, so I guess there isnt anything that is hack free.
