But how about a special forum for online hosts? I've been playing Il-2 since the original and have probably played only 3-4 local campaign missions. I've been playing online. I guess I should say that my IL-2 experience has been online play.

In that light, I wonder if it would be beneficial to the community to create an exclusive online area here on the forumns where folks could provide feedback, and online hosts could share tips/ideas etc.

Note that as an IL-2 online host, the only time I get feedback is when I kill the host and read HL pager messages. Not very efficient since the box I host on can go months w/o a reboot, though I do have to restart the server due to HL crashing here and there, and do read chat messages at that time.

Would be nice to have a more up-to-date way of 'seeing' what's going on though, especially with the expansion pack coming out.

I'm sure other server hosts agree.

I assume you're talking about DF arenas. Anyone who starts off by by telling the world he's been flying "since the original"...and you look down on those who fly off line, doesn't have anything to say that I want to hear.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I fly both on and off line and enjoy both.

I host quite a few Coops on the weekends and there are quite a few folks who fly with me (and with whom I fly when they host). We chat back and forth on the pager between missions. There's no shortage of feedback or idea exchange among the "regulars."

Can't speak for everyone, obviously, but I don't see any need for a separate forum. Anything that needs to be discussed can be talked about in the general discussion arena, imho.

Aloha,

From time to time there's some good info in the mission builder forum too, tips on what impact server performance, what impacts net traffic and so forth.
