I found this while searching for information on Cliffs of Dover and admittedly I am a latecomer to this discussion, but the video you cited is great--simultaneously entertaining and educational. I certainly now know to stay away from CoD until its significant bugs have been corrected. I must admit I am surprised by how buggy CoD seems to be, given the success of previous IL-2 versions, especially 1946, and given that CoD has been under development for 7 years. I realize combat flight sims are complex and are sometimes an ongoing project, but, if a company expects buyers to pay $45-$50 for a game, the game should be a relatively finished and complete product that provides entertainment, not frustration.

What a load of crap, wish I'd waited to hear about these problems before buying! My PC is well above most rec. specs with only my cpu (Q6600 O/Ced to 3ghz) letting me down. I've been looking forward to this title for 7 yrs and first pre-ordered the game over 6 yrs ago so how dare 1 of the developers insult both myself and all the other IL 2 fans out there by saying "Due to pressure of release date" You have had 7 YEARS to sort thse problems out and I suggest you get it sorted asap as at present IL2 Cliffs Of Dover is an embarrasment to the IL2 series and Ubisoft!!!!! But here is a link to hopefully put a lil smile on the faces of all the disappionted fans out there http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zs56Mr9iFqQ
Get the playability of this sim sorted guys, after all, the pressure of release date didnt affect your first console title Wings of Prey!!!!
I purchased IL10 1946 about 2 yrs ago and installed it on my pc....since then my pc crashed and I have purchased a new one but cant figure out how to download the game onto my new pc....any help??
For other issues with IL2:1946, post you question in http://forums.ubi.com/forumdisplay.p...Community-Help

sorry for bothering and politely sorry for any kind of bad behaving from me. I've got a difficult problem. I've bought a Il-2 CoD just yesterday, after installation the game runs just fine, but first the preview of aircraft is not working, I see a black box instead of a Spitfire. Nevertheless I start a random mission and after loading I see the windows screen. In upper left corner there is a small rectangular. Surprisingly the game works "normal" I hear the engine, voices in the cockpit. I installed the newest drivers of graphics, check for any instability in widows. Also I checked the same thing appears on my PC and two other laptops. With different drivers and multiple configurations. I'm asking because I just run out of ideas.
Here is the conf.ini file:
serverDescription=IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover
; 0 - not use, 1 - show cursor and not capture, 2 - not show cursor, and capture
; 0 - not use, 1 - use if hardware exist
; 0 - not use, 1 - use if hardware exist
SwapButtons = 0
RandSeed = 0
latest patch has helped things alot but here are a few tips to help with in game situational awareness.
in conf.ini add these values to their relative code lines
VisibilityDistance=6 this increases the range of view( funny that)
MeshShowLod=8 this increases the size of the dot of aircraft at range. not dramaticly but enuff so that you can see them at high res
SpawnHumans=1 this puts a pilot in other aircraft... eye candy i know but im sick of shooting down ghosts
next.......read this thread and add the files suggested to your game folder and increase the dot range to 30 in the icon.rcu
this actually will help in objects correctly being seen within the range paramaters of your graphics resolution.........
for those seeking color enhancements checkout fxaa in the 1c forums
Tried that, got this :-
(was already using SpawnHumans = 1)
Always back up your config file befote tinkering.

"You need to get out and **** more, L_F m8."
9 months later and the stuttering continues. How many updates were there in total?
i assume u are playing via steam thefore your game should update automatically if u have the option selected. there will be no more official updates. we will have to rely on the modders which have already done a great job, ie rearm refuel.
what are your system specs? my game runs very smooth but if alot of static items are drawn in ( tanks, trucks, etc) then i will get micro stutters. pretty smooth sailing over all.
