I tried the new patch yesterday. It seems we are back to the old IL2 days with WEP attached to the W-key. Is this on purpose or is it something wrong with my installation? I think I preferd the IL2/FB solution where WEP was enabled using the throttle beyon 100%. How was WEP enabled in reality? Pushing the throttle beyon a certain point or by using additional devices?

Always was on the 'W' key, for certain planes (190, 109 etc).

Some 'planes did have wep through the throttle though...

And some planes still do have wep on the throttle...P51 mustang for instance.

Since I usually fly 190's I can't say I've ever noticed a change in this from patch to patch, the W key has always been there for MW50 and Erhohte Notleistung.

Thanks. I have been living under the false impression that the throttle was the only way to engage WEP. Maybe because I mainly have been flying P39, and russian planes. I do however remember to have engaged water injection (US planes, P51?) using the throttle.

Can you see that you have engaged WEP in the 190's and other planes' cockpit?

There was no unversal set up. Hence also IL2 isn't uniform. Also one man's wep was another man's overboost. Not every indication of 110% is water injection, NO2 etc. Sometimes it is just power beyond the manufacture's limits.

There is no 'switch' or 'button' that shows in the FW190 (or Bf109) when 'WEP' is engaged, however there is a corresponding jump in manifold pressure (and RPM). Be aware though that this jump in manifold pressure is still subject to the 'laws' of altitude and supercharger gear.

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/351.gif and GM1... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif on the TA 152 we have two WEP systems...on one Key! I have seen me getting confused, particularly when things get a bit hairy, and leaving GM1 on below its rated altitude... fortunately unlike the 109's with it, leaving it on below rated alt doesnt wreck the engine, although it leaves me at 6000m wondering where all the fabulous performance has gone http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif LOL! ... until I remember to switch over to the MW-50 and then all is well... unless I'm dead LOL! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
