    With AEP i notice much more freezes in online game. I have clean Win XP, clean instalation AEP, hdd defragmented. AND FREEZES STILL ARE !!!
    The most freezes are when i close to enemy plane and want to shooting (i play VEF). Freezes are during 2-3 sekund. I often after freez broke with enemy or ground.

    My comp: BArton 2500+, MSI KT3 Ultra, 1 GB DDRAM, 80 GB HDD, GF 4600 128 MB, Win XP, 43.45 Omega drivers, SB Live 1024.

    Hi Kwiatos.
    I will copy this to IL-2 Communuity help. Post your Dxdiag and conf.ini file.

    Not like my personal opinon matters.. but SB Live and its variations don`t really get along with FB/AEP. As a little experiment, disable sound completely in il2setup and try on-line, see if problem still there.

    Good luck!

    Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

    Yesterday I decised to do a clean install. I installed FB from the box. I played with all the settings, and got it as good as I could. Which means I cranked everything up until slight stutters appeared, and then backed off until it became smooth. I was using the Black Death track for the test. Then I installed the AEP right on top of FB from the box. I used no patches in between. I rave the Black death track again with no changes to the settings. Now I had stutters, or slight pause. Whatever you want to call them. Now I had to back off the graphic settings some more to get it smooth again. Even though I was getting good fps (35-100) during the stutters.


    Anyway, that's my experience with my system.

    You still have that Falcon NASA computer Buzzy? I tend to believe it`s all sound related.. but will see.

    I have an old computer. my mother board agp slot is 2x and it only accepts pc 100 ram. I have a 1.4 cpu, 5200 ultra 128, 768mb of p/c 100 ram and a sound blaster live 5.1 sound card. comcast cable 3mb down 256kb up. that said I began hosting games not too long ago, I made a few maps that only have 1 plane in them. just so nobody is confused about that, its not 1 plane type per side, it means everybody uses the exact same plane both sides. I can have 20 players in my game and there are never any game pauses. when I permit several different types of planes in the game I get game pauses. even if there are only 4 of us in the game. putting 1 static a/c of every type in the map has never helped either. I have done this and the pauses are still there. it seems like everytime somebody respawns there is a game pause. why when you limit everybody to the same plane the game pauses go away I dont know, maybe it is easier for the computer to paint one a/c rather than keeping track of several different types.
