Hi guys am still new here, so if I ask a dumb question please do not flame me.

I am trying my hardest to land on a carrier with a Seafire, I have made a track of it, is there anywhere, where I can send this track for some advice???????

I do not have the time to join a squadren right now, so will understand if that is the only place.

Also I feel that I need to move my stick quits alot to get some response, how can I make it a bit more responsive???

I have read some of the posts on sticks, but as a newb have not really tried playing around with it too much.

By the way, I have a Saitek X-45

Hope for a little help.

Thx

Just a few of the many utilities (you've got the Essentials link list so I won't bother posting links):

Everybody uses HyperLobby if they want to play online (well a few use All Seeing Eye, but hyperlobby is nicer). If you only play offline, this doesn't effect you.

Again for Online: TeamSpeak is the voice-chat program most use on the online servers. There's plenty of public TS servers to correspond with game servers.

Lowengrin's DCG: A LOT of people use this to generate their co-operative and single-player campaigns. It's an alternative to the DGen.exe campaign generator, and it's a lot more dynamic, gives you a lot more control, and generally makes for more interesting missions than the default. It's a little difficult to set up though, and the briefings are a bit basic (although there are plans to fix this in the future).

VAC (Voice Activated Command): Shift_E's fantastic freeware utility for using a microphone to voice-activate commands in-game. You can use it to simulate the pressing of any combination of keys - but it's used most commonly for giving radio commands to your AI wingmen - it feels most realistic that way, and tapping out those commands on the keyboard is frustrating.

UberDemon's Quick Mission Generator: The in-game Quick Mission Generator is pretty limited in what it can do - it's restricted to four maps, and very few ground targets. Basically its fine for air-dogfighting but that's about it. Uberdemon's generator has no such restrictions - it can quickly generate any mission, in any location, with any aircraft, placing you as close or far from that action as you wish. You play these missions from the 'Single Mission' panel.

JaVa_Serval's SkinManager: It won't take you long to discover that there are more community made aircraft skins in this game then there were Prop planes in Leningrad. You'll be downloading 'em left right and centre. The SkinManager makes installing the skins (straight out of their .zip files) and managing their placement a breeze. For example, if the skin-creator hasn't bothered to name the .zip properly, the skin manager will look inside the .zip and show you the name of the skin as it shows up in-game.

Ace's IL2-MAT manager: This one is a good one - and get it fast as it's author has just discontinued its development. It replaces all the standard country and number markings on the aircraft with markings that are both more natural looking (weathered, coloured to the skins, etc) and historically accurate (for example, the Finnish markings are as reality, and you can have Swastikas on the tails of your German aircraft). The latest version is much faster to load, too, after the first time. (it was a bit of a long wait in the past)

That should get you started http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Cheers,
Junko 'Junkers' Kimura

The guy who wrote the "Joysticks..." article linked under my signature picture (me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif) was using an X-45 at the time, so you may find "The Author's" sensitivity settings a good place to start....

Thx to all of you for all your input, am starting to get the bug back again, cannot wait to get home from work to get flying.

Lovely, although the girlfriend isn't sure of what to make of it.
