Is it just me or when you turn on the mirrors in the spitfire and p38, the fps drops DRAMATICALLY it dosent affect any other aircraft i.e p40, p47, ect ect could it just be the size of the mirrors or has anyone else experience the same problem?

If you have S3TC enabled, try turning it off (in setup).

I think that this game is getting much complicated.. you must know everything to make it run properlly.. hope there will be some fixes soon...But i like it much anyway http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Its not really that complicated...its appreciably complicated in that you can go in and make the changes you want if you feel that they would be necessary. Otherwise its fairly automated. Most sims require a slightly greater tech knowledge base anyways...heck you have to be inclined to play the game I suppose.

Spitfires in mirror may be closer than they appear

hey Chris455....thanks....I'll have to try that too. I have been turning the mirrors off because of such a high FPS hit. With the way I fly i need mirrors.

in no gfx preset that you can choose from within il2setup.exe there is S3CT compression enabled , so you made it complicated yourself then http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I think on 1.22 airplanes this was fixed by changing the textures of the mirrors so they where NOT compressed to S3CT , hence they are faster , the new airplanes surely dont have this fix.
