Seen it yet PBNA - Boosher?

http://www.flightsim.com/cgi/kds?$=main/review/vb-il2.htm

First time I've seen IL2 Sturmovik mentioned on Flightsim.com. Hope it's the beginning of more exposure for our favorite combat sim. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Cool! Finally, the world is starting to take notice! Very soon, the whole story will be out, of Katya, Lilya, the rest of the 586 IAP, 125th GvBAP, and 46 GvNBAP! We need to keep their stories alive. There are less than 70 of the original women who served in these air regiments left. They won't be around for much longer, but hopefully, with companies implementing things like these, their stories will be.

flightsim.com probably receives no money from Maddox http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I recall them doing announcing something when BOE came out.

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge,
ye shall be judged: and with what
measure ye mete, it shall be measured
to you again.


Placed 3rd, with team, in the official european championship Il-2/FB

He didn't like Il-2 FB because of the many buttons. Is that what I am reading? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

I suppose he felt he had to say that to push the product he wss advertising. Can't imagine anyone who spends a lot of time on computers being turned off by having to push keys.

In this day and age unless you are on a tight budget there is no reason to be simming with a keyboard at all.. even for hardly used commands. What with sticks like the X45 and the CH stuff and FBs multi controller capabilites the keyboard should be for typing only.... and the only reason why I still use it for that when I am simming is because I just dont have the time to teach SHOOT.

He was referring to the amount of commands that were left up to the user to define (and remember!) in IL2:FB

Trying to program every one of the FB commands onto a HOTAS would be difficult because of the sheer number, let alone trying to remember which button/mode/shift state a particular function is. Voice buddy comes with an IL2 settings.ini file with every command programmed. Remapped my X45 profile to match, and now I have a lot of functions available that I didn't before. For example, my prop pitch is on a rotary, but now I can also say "prop pitch 5" and jump right to 50%. No need now to remember which x45 mode I had fuel mixture, engine selections, etc set to.

I got it mainly because I ordered TrackIr and there was a discount from edimensional with both. I fly offline a lot and was using Shoot to communicate with wingmen/flights, setting up bomb runs, etc. So far this one has been a lot more stable.

Plus there's just something sexy about saying "cover me" and having MS Mary say "you got it, kick his a$$ baby" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

BTW, you need the speech sdk from Microsoft to run this... no mention of it from edimensional, and it didn't work at first (have a relatively new computer that wasn't set up for voice recognition). I remembered that Shoot needed that, so downloaded/installed and works great.

Another neat feature is some of the flight instructions. Say "teach me an Immelman" or "flat scissors" and you'll be walked through the maneuver. I'm guessing there's about 30 or 40 "lessons".
