I am getting all speedblind. The internet pages loads faster than I can blink and am amazed of those 4 megabytes/seconds downloads. (rare but they do exist)
Am used to max 4 kb/s http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

So where do I find the best IL 2 FB movies?

Downloading some divx codec was all that was needed.

Yes I find that. Some really nice movies there. But all the movies I have found has been on 640x480 resolutions and not really doing IL 2 FB justice. Aren´t there any 1280x960 movies out there.

Don´t mind file size since I am on a broadband connection http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Hi oeqvist

I suppose you've checked JRJacobs and BPond Resume in VWC:

http://www.blacksheepwebdesign.net/VirtualWarCinema/viewforum.php?f=14&sid=324b7e9028b18cc574db6bc5bf094750

You can find more links to other movie on the same site

There's also a lot of information on the following link:

http://sunstarentertainment.maddsites.com/il2homepagehauptman99.html

Want something else..well register at VWC..you'll certainly find more than enough.

About the 1280x960 movies, have you checked movies like Stranger, Another Day, into the Maelstrom or Sacrifice (use the search feature at VWC to find downloading links). Why do you want more resolution isn't that good enough.

Anyway there are important technical limitations for screen resolution while capturing, when you use FRAPS usual resolution is 640x480, others programs such as Camtasia can capture at 800x600. Want to learn more about that...the answer lies in VWC forum..guaranteed.

Good flight to you !

I want the movies to look as good as when I play IL 2 FB realtime http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif The explosions sure are nicer than real time but I hate jaggies and such. It´s worse in games and even worse movies http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It´s amazing how much music can do. I wish that would be available when dog fighting in IL 2 FB as well.

Actually, in My Opinion, the explosions in the movies, with certain refined techniques by the movie-makers, appear much More realistic than in the FB game itself...

It IS available while dogfighting...Make a *.wav file of ANY music you want to hear, then place that wav file into your samples/music/InFlight folder; then in your FB set up, selct "play inflight tracks" in teh sound/general or sound/music screen, and ensure you have toggled ON the "Play Music switch(es)

The default FB folder doesn't have any deafult InFlight music(*.wav file) so you have to add your own as I described above...

Great. That was what I meant. The explosions in the movies are much better than realtime explosions /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

"4 megabytes/seconds downloads"

I tihnk you may mean 4 megaBITS not bytes. Megabytes would imply you have like a T3 type of connection. 4 MegaBIT connect is like 350 Kilobytes download speed.

I only get 1.5 megabytes d/l at school on our full 100Mbit connect.

Beta tester for;
C&C Generals,Independance War 2, Starfleet Command 2,Settlers IV, Tzar, Allegiance, Starfleet Command,MAX 2, Defiance

I mean 4 megabyte!!!

but it depends. On some servers it´s only 4 kb. But if the connecting server is good yes I get 4 megabyte and above...

For less serious stuff, you can check my movies section.

Follow the sig line, click on the "movies" button.

I indeed made the infamous music video featuring Tolwyn's "Flying For The First Time" song (which you have to hear to appreciate, as it is written for every virtual pilot).

Hi there,

Congrats on your bb connection. You never look back once you've been there!

I get over 3MB/s download for large files. Most files download before it gets this fast.

I also use Free Downloads Accelerator. I'm not sure how much this helps.

Here's a test download I just did:

And just for the hell of it, here's one of my fav screenshots from my off-line play:

I hope the links work. It's the first time I've tried posted links.

Happy fly'n!
