I fully understand why the development team ignores us, for we fully deserve it! Look at these posts asking for the most obscure of planes to be added that never saw the Eastern front. Ever stopped to considered how insulted and hurt those who sacrificed at the Eastern Front and their loved ones might be? Eye candy requests abound. I even read a thread about fuel possibly leaking from the right wing when the hit entered the left wing; what nonsense! Bullets change direction (especially armour piercing when they strike a solid object) and the computer model has you leaking fuel; get over it and try not to get shot to pieces next time! What is wrong with all of us? Have we collectively lost our minds? We are asking our little, air cooled personal computers to handle duty that just a few years ago, only the biggest of liquid cooled mainframe computers can handle. These moronic requests, if fullfilled, will make this game unplayable on anything but the latest computers (and just barely at that). Please don't give me the "If you can't play with the big dogs, stay on the porch" arguement, it won't fly. Maybe you have $3,000.00 a year to drop on computers, but the rest of us have a life with children to raise and other duties. THIS IS JUST A GAME!!!!

Please Oleg, stop the screen shot cheaters. If I wanted to play Star Trek, I would have picked another game. Yes, sophisticated hackers will always find a way, but I'm talking about fixes that happened two years ago in other games. I will pay the price of the game again for just these basic fixes to the rampant cheating that goes on in rooms like HyperLobby. I'm not asking for perfection, just an end to children of all ages playing with the phone jack etc.

Also, please make the P-47 actually fly. Yes the P-47 was a bit of a pig, but not nearly as much of a pig as even those who somehow got their hands on the beta patches report. Leaving the P-47 unrealistically piggish when it turns is an insult to those who flew and died fighting in that plane.

Do these two things and I will become a IL-2 Forgotten Battles Evangelist!!! For too long flight simulator games have been stuck in the realm of trust fund bums and geeks who live with their parents into their late twenties and beyond. The mainstream computer users would love this game! Fix it and it will go down in history as a landmark game. If it doesn't get fixed, and fixed soon, I will bad mouth this game and spend great resources doing so.

Also, I have the lastest path that is floating around, Beta08Patch is what it is called. And you may say to yourself, well he said he was going to wait until Oleg's patch came out.

Well, I lied. I just wanted to see what all the hype was about, and frankly I see no difference than before, except for preformance wise, the game runs alot smoother with the 08 Patch, but I don't know if that's because of the patch or because of my computer? If it's because of the patch then great, okay I'm getting off track here, let me get back to the main subject.

As I said, there is no difference to me with this 08 Patch, except for preformance.

I'm sure some of us has had this 08 patch for a good long while, I don't know about anyone else, but I think we ought to get rid of the Beta08Patch and any place that has it.

I mean seriously, what are we losing if we get rid of it? A couple of preformance stuff, wow, get a better computer I say! I know we aren't gaining anything either, but...

Maybe if we all could just hang back and stop pestering Oleg into putting stuff into the patch that Historically doesn't need to be there we won't have to get another RAM or Memory Upgrade just to run the dame thing.

Some people may disagree with what I'm saying right now, but sometimes once in awhile I like to just spill my guts, and if get banned because of what I just said, then there must really be some offensive people out there.

That said I can't not think of anything else to say, but if I do, this will be the first place I write it.

there are some true points in your text but what is a screenshot cheater???????? If you mean the cheat messages in online games you are one of those smarties who still haven't realized that the cheat messages are a bug happening whenever there is a lag. I know of no way to cheat in the game, but if you know it better please tell me would be interesting.

Actually, I'm a 44 year old still married to the woman who gave me the joy of my life (my daughter). I did say I would pay the retail price of the game just to have the basic cheating stop and the P-47 fixed. I only said I would use resources, not money that is needed for my daughters college fund to badmouth this game. Either way, I at least thank you for responding to my comments and hope others will as well. I will not take offense at anyone who does not aggree with what I have to say here.

Actually, I'm talking about warping caused by someone taking multiple screen shots to make their plane warp. It is a commonly known cheat that has been fixed in many other games. There are many other cheats as well. They include, but are not limited to...

1) Making your plane invulnerable

2) Suppressing icons for your plane

3) Making your plane transparrent

4) Voiding blackouts and redouts for your plane only

Please don't ask me how this is done as I don't cheat and I don't want to learn. I can only report what I've seen in HyperLobby and other rooms.

Yes, I agree. When I read about more eye candy I thought here I go lowering my already medium settings to play the game. I can't afford the latest and greatest every year. I still got a PIII 866 that is 3 yrs old. Just get it to run well even on lower end machines like mine.

As for the cheating I too have seen it. The Screen Shot Cheat is real. I have seen it used at least 20x in 2 days in 2 particular servers. One was so bad that Luckyboy complained and was banned for it! I have also seen a 109 w/ the speed and climb abilites of a F15 Eagle. I was doing 609KPH in a slight dive and this sukker was accelerating from me in a straight line! So do please shut the loop holes for cheating.

As for the P-47 it is not as well done in the FM as the other planes. True it was not an accel demon but it could do a roll maneuver better than most. I have talked to real vets from the 56th FG and they described it doing things the game one can't such as a quick half loop also known as a wingover and the preiviously mentioned rolling ablity and they never mentioned it falling out of the sky in a tight yaw maneuver as the game one does. At 30,000+ the 47 was almost unbeatable for most of the war. Its ablity to take damage and still fight it way home is legendary even w/ a cylinder blown clean off the engine. That is the 47 I want to fly.

it's my understanding the screen-shot cheat was fixed in fb by restricting the amount of shots you can take in a given time.

Anyway - enough has been said aboutthe future patch. The developers have had a phenomenal amount of input and I think the best we all can to is to shut up about it.

According to NACA it was about average. Better than
some at some speeds, worse than others, but only
a little worse than, say, the P51, but a little further
behind the Spitfire, but quite a distance behind things
like the Fw190 and F4U.

- I have

I thought a wingover was a climbing turn with a
quarter roll at the top before pulling back on the
stick to reverse direction? It seems tricker to do
in the P47 than the P47 on other sims as it is
very easy to go into an accelerated stall if you
pull back too hard.

XyZspineZyX
07-27-2003, 09:48 PM
Actually, your both wrong. A wingover is a wide stall tur (hammerhead). It doesn't pivot at the top like a stall turn, it's wider, and retains more speed. A much safer move in combat. there is no rolling, or pulling onthe elevator. It's all done with the rudder, and a touch od aileron to keep the wings level.

The screen shot cheat is simply a method of overloading your computer so that it laggs out and causes warping. This is typically done by repeatedly pressing the screenshot button. Each time the button was pressed, the game would lag for a little bit.

This was corrected by only permitting screenshots to be taken one every two minutes I think. I don't remember the precise time frame they were limited to. You could press the key once, get a little lag, and then you would not be able to generate any more lag for a period of time.

Here is the problem, Il-2 permites backround programs to be run. All programs compatable with the Windows 2000 enviroment must. One can use a backround program, instead of the screenshot key, to overload one's computer. This creates the same lag and warping that the original screenshot cheat did, however, it is now uncounterable, save by banning the running of programs in the backround during play. Talk to Microsoft about that one, and don't expect them to actually produce something workable.

As for aircrat travelling at warp speed in straight lines, that is called "timing out". It happens when someone loses their connection. Unfortunatly Il-2 has a very robust connection system, that is capable to reconnecting players who have been nearly dropped, so instead of merely punting a player with an unstable connection, it reconnects them, and positions them were they should be.

As fo those of you out there, who wonder why us vets tend to jump down newbie's throats, this thread is a perfect example. These topics have been discussed multiple times, and swearing to bring down the developer if you don't get your way is about the most irrational threat I have ever read from someone. Unfortunatly this game seems to have attracted those sorts of people. He is not the first, nor do I believe he will be the last.

At least this serves as fair warning for those few of us who once considered making such games. I honestly don't know how Oleg takes it.

Thank you Harry for the excellent response to my rantings!!! I especially appreciate that you took the time to fully explain the issues at hand. A very informative and intellegent response!

All I know is that the P-47 is unflyable, even by what people report to me is in the Beta 08 patch. It seems they could fix the program to boot those with bad connections, that seems a reasonable fix. As far as the background programs.... Way over my head dude!!!! I have no idea what to do about that.

Either way, thank you Harry for the straight answers!

More nonsense re cheats.

Been playing this game since the Il2 demo still yet to see any real cheats apart from the occasional lag cheats and I rarely see any of these anymore, what are the invulnerable cheat and invisible cheat etc?

Luckyboy how did you manage to see the transparent plane cheat?

I find these continuous unsubstanciated cheat claims too be extremely annoying, funny its always newbie posters making these claims, your either playing a different game to me or you need to select different people to fly online with.

Cheaters make their plane transparent, not invisible, when I can see through the planes' wing and see what is behind it, something is wrong. When I have to get within 100 meters of the enemy plane before I can see their I.D. again, something is wrong. When I put 200 rounds into an enemy when I'm so close, I can count the rivettes in the tail and no smoke, no leaking anything, no battle damage at all, something is wrong. When I see planes flying backwards at MAC 4.0.... But of course, you actually see these things every time you go to an open dogfight in HyperLobby or elsewhere. Maybe you do very little online flying, but the cheating is there and it's out of control.

As far as the "newbie" thing; I'm new to posting here, not so new to the game. Granted, I waited until IL-2 Forgotten Battles release because I don't have money to burn. Even if I was new, your comments would be better recieved if they contained constructive information (for example, Harry's post) instead of ridicule and burying your head in the sand to the obvious problems with IL-2 Forgotten Battles.

I'm glad to hear from someone who's been around this game so long. Maybe you can share ways to deal with these problems (even if they are not caused by cheating). All of us "newbies" who have only been at this for the last year or so, await your solutions to problems with IL-2 Forgotten Battles that frankly baffle my simple mind. I bow to the ancient minds!!!!

The video card driver has been hacked. This is not a game issue, and those that use it can apply it to any game. In fps games it's called a "wall hack" I believe (one of two forms under that name).

The host is using custom icon ranges. All players see icons at the range set by the host (including the host). It's a game feature, not a cheat, see http://www.mudmovers.com/sturmovik_101/FAQ.htm#How%20do%20I%20customise%20icons for more information on this.


- When I put 200 rounds into an enemy when I'm

Either lag or you're not hitting a vital part of the target.


- When I see planes flying
- backwards at MAC 4.0....

The partial connection dropout mentioned above also causes this. Sometimes the connection comes back and the plane zooms back to where it belongs, other times the connection times out and the oddly behaving aircraft disappears.

They are big boys, and can choose not to click on certain threads if they want. Totally ignoring us? THis is one of the worst supported communitites I have ever seen. They deserve to go out of business if you ask me, and I will be happy when Oleg has no further obligations to Ubi.

Ever stopped to

eh? Why would adding a new plane to this GAME insult someone who fought on the Eastern Front? Speaking of Moronic.....

OK here we go :

These types of items are client side and not server side hacks. In short for you to SEE them you would have to have it installed on your system. Wall hacks,foliage hacks,fog hacks, are these types. There is no hack to show a users plane to you as such....

When
- I have to get within 100 meters of the enemy plane
- before I can see their I.D. again, something is
- wrong.

Generally this is ID settings on the server. If not you probably need to correct your video cards driver or settings...can explain the missing textures you see in other areas.


When I put 200 rounds into an enemy when I'm
- so close, I can count the rivettes in the tail and
- no smoke, no leaking anything, no battle damage at
- all, something is wrong.

Either lag or /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif


When I see planes flying
- backwards at MAC 4.0.... But of course, you
- actually see these things every time you go to an
- open dogfight in HyperLobby or elsewhere. Maybe you
- do very little online flying, but the cheating is
- there and it's out of control.

Not cheating but lag/packet loss. If a server hs incorrect hosting parameters it is possibly more likely to happen.


- As far as the "newbie" thing; I'm new to posting
- here, not so new to the game. Granted, I waited
- until IL-2 Forgotten Battles release because I don't
- have money to burn. Even if I was new, your
- comments would be better recieved if they contained
- constructive information (for example, Harry's post)
- instead of ridicule and burying your head in the
- sand to the obvious problems with IL-2 Forgotten
- Battles.
-
- I'm glad to hear from someone who's been around this
- game so long. Maybe you can share ways to deal with
- these problems (even if they are not caused by
- cheating). All of us "newbies" who have only been
- at this for the last year or so, await your
- solutions to problems with IL-2 Forgotten Battles
- that frankly baffle my simple mind. I bow to the
- ancient minds!!!!


With the patch coming in little tiem it is not worth me typing some of the solutions as they are lenghty. Please keep in mind what I have said as to the possible solutions. From the things stated these seem to be either system or connection related. You can post your DX diag in the Tech forum and I will be happy to look at it for you to see if there is anything glaring.

Thank you for your comments and the offer to help me diagnose my computer ills. The only problem is, I don't know how to do a diagnosis. If you would be kind enough to let me know how to do it (preferrably step-by-step in XP based systems) I will quickly get back to you with the needed information.

Hunter, the diagnosis you requested is in the technical forum. Thanks again for helping

This screen cheat ( pressing screenshot button quickly )
has already been discussed to death yonks ago on this board.

Community testing confirmed what Oleg stated ( he said he removed the ability to do it anyway in one of the latest IL2 patches) and that is it will screw your machine as much as it will screw the server performance. i.e any gain you have will be nullified by the fact that it will cause your system to crawl along as it tries to write all those 2mg screengrabs AND run the game.

Sorry but your post is invalid.
Quit the whining please http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Wow, Luckyboy310th, are we playing on the same Hyper Lobby system? I have yet to see what you have described and although I'm not a 24/7 HL flyer I do get at least 5 hours a week in.

Most of what I see and fly against seems quite legit. I know I have some gunnery issues but I am one hell of a pilot and very slippery as a target (-:

BTW at the moment I'm only running on Test08 servers with cockpit on cause I like my 3D cockpits and I expect everyone else to like theirs when I'm flying aginst them. Try flying Sat Night or for me it would be Sun Morning Eastern Seaboard time (Australia). No cheating that I can discern but also the Test08 seems to have better network capabilities hence less to no warps.

He is not alone. I too have seen it and have had it done to me. Maybe the times you are there are the bedtimes of the "children" that need to do this. There are 3 servers that I saw it alot on, names withheld. I was the one who saw the 109 be able to do 750+kph in level flight and climb like a jet.
