Is track ir a cheat to those who don´t have the advantage to have it the same way as trim on a slider is to those who can´t have it???

Hehehehe...so? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

No, and No, in my opinion.

Tricky question, though./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Its our own fault for not forking over the $ for it.

Thats like losing a hockey game and blaming it on the fact that the opponents had better hockey sticks than you.

So, you mean that having both track ir and trim on a slider is just a matter of money? Interesting point of view...but I aimed for a more "practical" response...

Cuceleches by no means I mean to disrespect you man.

But that's a silly question /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

If it was to be considered a cheat, I would have to consider any processor, RAM, and graphics card that are better than mine a cheat because for now I can't afford to get anything better than what I have.

Bear in mind I have a 933Mhz Pentium III processor, 386 MB of RAM and only a lousy GeForce 2 Mx-200 with 32 megs.

Soon, to rule out any possibility of cheat we'd be seeing "Keyboards only" servers in HL. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

So, I don't think that it could be considered a cheat.

Neromoura, I don´t think it´s the same...better hardware won´t make your planes fly higher, or faster or be deadlier than with lower hardware specs...but a track ir while in a full realism server is an advantage over people who don´t have it, you must admit...as well as trimming faster with a slider is not the same as trimming with a hat, is it?...those little details could make the difference in a dogfight...while having your screen res at 1024x768 in stead of 1600x1200 won´t...

Well, it might not seem to be a great difference for you whom, I suppose has a nice system for today's standards.

But whenever I enter an online dogfight with multiple targets, it stutters, thus when I can get out of it there's a dude in my six.

With the game's graphics toned down so much I don't have any problem identifying enemy aricraft. I do however feel kind of difficult to identify the enemy blur.

There are some planes I can't fly in (La series for instance) because their cockpits have some features that kill my FPS.

Resolution does count ALOT and I play mostly in FR servers. The higher the resolution, higher are your chances of spotting the enemy and that counts a whole lot more than being able to track it during the dogfight.

I never b1tch about my lousy system's specs. I'm still able to do a fine job while playing online or offline (whenever the system allows me to).

If some people have a problem tracking targets 'by hand' they should practise more and not complain about hardware some people bought, many times with their hard work, so they could improve the gamming experience.

Track IR doesn't make anyone a better stick or give them definite advantage on the combat arena. You can simply nullify the effect of one by using proper tactics and learning to fly your aircraft how it should be flown.

If by any chance you got yourself in the air with someone alot more experienced than you, believe me, it's not the Track IR making a difference, as he would have gotten you anyways.

You´re right, track ir ´doesn´t make the pilot, but it helps a lot...I still use a microstick to pan views, and won´t change that, but I really would like to see how TIR performs, as I´m sure it would increase my spotting and tracking enemies chances. That´s mostly true while in FR servers that do not allow padlocking. Then , TIR is really a very helpfull toy...

Nope. I only bought a joystick after two months into IL-2 /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I got some serious kills while in keyboard time /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
