I don't get it. As far as I know, he's still active in the squad. Why would he suddenly abandon the forums?

I don't know anything about the squad side of it, he never mentioned it, but he did say that he was going to avoid the forums for a while due to the proliferation of negative waves out here.

I just got to be thinking about it and decided that would be shame, I rather enjoy his input regarding things in general.

He's got a good sense of humour. Too bad he missed the infamous Pencil Roll post. I'll let him know that he's being missed on the forums.

Sorry, I didn't see this until my squad leader told me about it. Thanks for the responses guys, I'm just laying low until patch comes out and things calm down a little. Maybe until the JuJu resonates more positively.

Flew for the first time in weeks last night (and man did it show) and ran into Zen, Fehler, and others (good to see all of you). And damn you Zen (in your P-63) for running me (in my 190A-9) all the way back to your base to the waiting flak http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif and then finishing me off as I tried to rtb http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. And what were you doing in a P-63 anyway http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/354.gif?

I was excited to be flying again and proceeded to be completely undisciplined http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/1072.gif and tried to take on the world by myself which is a bad idea in the 190A. I think I pretty much went against everything I have ever posted on how to fly the FW-190 last night http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif. Still had some success but more importantly still had a good time.

Anyway, thanks again for the thread and it is appreciated. Be sure.

Thats a funny thing...I don't fly P63's, never turned the prop on one yet.

There is another guy roaming around HL with the name Zen.

My actual login name there is Zen--

He's scared the hell out of me a couple times by showing up in Warclouds and telling everyone he is the original Zen. He might be lol, but he's not ME.

Anyhoo, glad you decided to stick around some, hate to see a good fellow go.

I've played on War_Clouds a few times but it is a little less than ideal Fw-190 hunting grounds. Between Icons, externals and PL the only thing an Fw can do is just run around in circles occasionally taking a potshot at someone suffering from target fixation. Or vulch the hell out of the enemy base, that is what I always end up doing there. Nice to see you're back, I'd hate to have to go around making up for your absense, especially since all I have done lately is drop bombs so my gunnery skills arn't too good at the moment http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif.

Now that you mention it... I dont really like externals on in a dogfight server! Why? Because you cannot bounce ANYONE! What is the preferred method of LW pilots? B&Z. What good is B&Z if the guy can simply turn at the last second you dive on him because he is watching everything behind him in external mode? I prefer Bounce and Zoom, and find it especially entertaining when I get bounced by a turn plane! Then I know Im dead!

I am not here to criticise WarClouds server, believe me. It just doesnt suit my taste, and that is the wonderful part of IL2, you CAN fly to your level and taste. But quite honestly, I cant wait until GG gets up and running with AEP.

I do have one issue with WC though, that I just cant figure out if it's me or the server. I get moments of freeze that I dont get anywhere else. I tried jacking with my net settings, and nothing seems to fix the problem, yet I usually ping 18 to the server.. Yes... 18! Yet when others get shot down, join the server, select a new plane, etc. I get freezes. These freezes ALWAYS happen at the worst times (Just before shooting). What gives? Anyone else with a relatively good ping on that server have problems?

I once read something about preloading aircraft to avoid the "join" freezes. I have never hosted, and dont know a thing about that stuff. Could that be a problem?

WC is a great server. The maps are very nice, although I like a strict-er planeset to keep the aircraft competative. (I like to fly earlier planes too!) I just wish I could figure out the problem - if it is on my end.

It was great seeing you Hunde. I kinda didnt think it was Zen--.. flying those VVS planes like a bank and cranker! hehe

Fehler, good points and I feel the same. And it wasn't you at all I was getting bad freezes and it made me crash twice and lose a few kills. Came into land....long freeze....into hillside with airfield about a mile behind me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. Also, it seems to freeze just when you get into firing range sometimes, I noticed this once with VFC server and it was apparent last night. My squadmates commented on it as well so its not you. Hopefully patch will rectify this, though I haven't flown on WarClouds before so I can't say if it is new or not. And to all I don't mean this as a slight towards WarClouds at all, its their server and they can have any settings they choose and I was grateful for a place to fly.

And Zen in an allied plane, pfft, what was I thinking. Pulled another Barney.

S~ guys. I am the Admin for War_Clouds. Just thought i would reply to some of your comments.

It would be helpful if you would post your systems specs if you are getting lags and stutters. You can refer to this thread that explains a lot about what could be the cause of the lags and stutters. Just because you have a great ping does not mean you will be lag free. http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=23110283&m=427100692

About the settings. First off, Pad lock is not on. I flat out refuse to enable that. Yes i know there is an external padlock. But if someone wants to turn on and external view and padlock me and then try to fly a defensive while in that view, GO FOR IT. They surely will be shot down. I personally do not care for External view myself. And i see in these forums everyday that people dislike them. I have tried on countless occasions to turn off external views on the servers. Then the server just sits there empty. No one ever plays or joins. I turn external views back on and bam, server fills to the max. Sure the external views make it harder to bounce someone. And i used to do it alot as well. But what do you do? Run and empty server or a full server with externals and deal with the setting? I choose the latter. Externals are not that big of a help to someone if their piloting skills are not good. Even a good pilot wont use externals much because it throws your SA off too much. Sorry for the rant on this one, but it's very disturbing to see all these requests for No externals and to oblige and in return see and empty server.

The icon settings. Well, this is probably the most debated thing in the game. Some play on 15in monitors and some on 21". There are just too many factors. If you read my post in the other thread i linked here, you will see my explanation of why i choose the icon settings i have.

I guess we could try running with not externals again, but i am sure that the crowd will just fall off like it always does. Externals are a funny thing. YOu can take away any other setting in game and people will play. Lock them in the pit and no pad lock do not have near the impact that External views do. Well sorry you didnt get much enjoyment out of the server. But when setting up a premanent server like taht you have to make trade offs. I personally think that the settings are still very competetive and require that you are a good pilot.

S~ and happy Flying

beat me...but i guess i'll never grasp the logic of disabling padlock but enabling outside view.

Thats like forbidding revolvers but to allow machine guns :P

Aw shucks gentlemen, I fly the 190 there all the time and get plenty of kills. You guys make it sound like the only advantage a 190 has is surprise... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I don't like externals either, but SPaRX is right...turn them off and the server is empty. Call me weak or accuse me of falling to the darkside, but I'd rather play where it is full than where it is empty.

A necessary evil I guess. And really...it doesn't matter if they use externals or not, you can still get kills. Perhaps even more kills because the server is usually packed full and that means more targets http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

DOH! I didn't mean for this to turn into a discussion about settings or Warclouds.

Sparx, I said that I had a good time and I was just grateful for a place to fly. I completely agree, if you turn externals off I'm sure the number of players would drop off http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif. And I agree with Zen, I would rather play on a populated server than a near empty one any time. I have no problem recommending Warclouds at all and I suggest everyone give it a try. Sorry for the misunderstanding, I had a great time.

Radeon 9800-PRO
AMD 2800+ with Barton core

S~ Hunde, its ok bud, no harm no foul http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif . It just seems like everytime the server gets mentioned, someone is expressing their dislike for externals. But honestly, I have found it can work to your advantage if someoen is flying externally and watching their six. Try driving your car with your head wrentched around and looking at your trunk. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif . Its very easy even for someone who uses external views a lot to get disoriented very quickly. I use his to my advantage. If you are going to be crazy enough to put yourself into that position, I will gratiously use it to my advantage.

Now as for your lag and freezing issues. First off, the server is running in a full install. So this makes its very cpu intensive on the server to start with. Hopefully with the dedicated server package, the server will be back to normal. You are running exactly the same system I am. So i don't think its a hardware issue. What you might try is some trace routes and ping tests to the server with some larger packet sizes. See if there i a particular router that may be giving you some trouble between your cpu and the server. Internet gaming is a pain in the butt. You can configure a server to run like a million dollar race pony, but you are relying on a system that is unpredictable as the weather. Hopefully you try the server out again and won't have the problems.

Ahhh sorry.

No..i certainly don't dislike outside view. I haveto admit i useit all the timeon servers that enabled it. And i have to apologize for not mentioning this earlier...i really like that server. I am on it quiet frequently. Something could be changed (more historical correct planeset for example), but thats just personal taste http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

No, seriously, i am grateful and thankful for the time, effort and money you invest for others enjoyment. Just that comment about outside and padlock view striked me as odd.

But enough of this, sorry for hijacking this thread.

Well hopeyou are well, & can't say i blame you for avoiding the forums for a while, the bickering can become more annoying than relaxing sometimes. That's why I hope you aren't gone too long.
Thinking i just might finally get around to stating that 190 campaign this weekend. just about got those Hun crosses scraped off the old bird, then I just have to paint on my personal rubber ducky emblem & I'm off.

Of, course the misses says i'm off more than a wee bit already.
