Maybe this has already been informed to Oleg and team but recently I have been trying to record using IL2 track recorder but when I play back my flight recordings it seems like it's off synched. In the original flight I shoot at a target but when it's replayed it shoots above or below and misses the target completelly and then the whole story changes completelly! For me it's a BIG issue since I use the track recording capabilities to 'direct' my IL2 movies in which will delay upcoming IL2 blockbusters. Any other movie makers witness this issue? Your input and guidance is appreciated it.

Thank you.

A 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. A 'great'
landing is one after which they can use the plane again<center>

Hi NTESLA

Yes that's agreat problem for me also, so i haven't patched my game, OLEG is aware of this bug that not only affects the actual tracks you record but also the pre-patch tracks.

I read somewhere that this has something to do with the sructure of the TRK files wich record control instructions rather than actual geographic positions. Since many FM have been reworked the same amount of rudder or stick doesn't have the same result in the patched version so the whole recording is full of nonsense instructions acording to "our" human standards.

Hope this is soon fixed as i really want to enjoy the positive aspect of the patched game.

Good flight to you !

Hello Jagaetev,

Thanks for the explanation, it makes 100% sense. It seems that the Oleg team was so focused with the new FM that they forgot adjust the track recording feature to it.


I am willing to wait for the next patch to fix it but then my movies will be delayed. Really hope that the patch arrives with the add-on since I need certain new objects for the new film.

Thanks!

Hi again

I'll be waiting your great movies, i must admit that i'm a great fan of your work and also of UCLANUPE movies. I'm wondering when will ubi host another movie contest, this time you and UCLANUPE will have to push a lot harder to win since some real cool guys are beginning to make cool movies (Davince and I16Fan).

I'm just curious, wich elements are you expencting to include in your movies after the add-ons finally come out ?

About the track bug, yes i think that Olegg was busy with greater aspects of the game but it should be easy to fix the recorder don't you think. I'm not a whinner myself and i think we should all be gratefull that 1C:Maddox still wants to improve his product at no cost for us !

Good flight to you !

- Thank you.

i had to revert back to version 1(re install), 1.1b was unacceptable for movie making, the track playback thing wasnt a problem for me, but the fact that the lead plane in every flight cant have a custom skin on killed all the work i had done in 1.1b, i tried to work around it but just couldnt.

my second movie is nearing completion and will be out in a day or 2. But it would have been out allready if it were not for 1.1bs track problem, i had days of work lost because of that track skin bug.


tracks/track playback work fine in 1.1b if you manually record the track(click start recording at begining of track), instead of waiting till the end and clicking "save track". But i couldnt figure out how to get around being forced to use default skins http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

You are correct Jagaetev, there are more new IL2 "movie directors" like Devinci, I16fan, Hupmann and many others besides me and UCLANUPE. I am not afraid of competition, I look forward to it since everyone benefits from it. I get to learn new techniques of 'movie making' and all other IL2 fans will enjoy more elaborate and detail movie story telling! Imagine, this new hobbie of movie making began just less than 6 months ago! What will 1 year bring? We have to sit down with some popcorn and see.

I just need the B-17 bomber since it will show up in a part of my next film, maybe for just seconds but it is important to the story. I know other new planes, bombers and groud objects will be included and they will all expand my options for different stories to show in a movie.

I am confident that Oleg and his group will fix this issue with the recorder, the thing is that I found out about it recently when trying to record the new tracks for my next movie.

Good to know you are a big IL2 movie fan, spread the word and show them to familly and friends!

heh that is exactly what i am waiting for. the b17 and the p51. i allready have the idea for my next vid(after the one i am about to release), and it revolves around the b17.

i havnt decided if it is going to be 10+mins long, or if i am going to go "all out" and make it 20mins long, but it will pretty much be a cross between requiem and Memphis Belle, which is why i want the b17 so bad http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Wow, good to know another fellow movie maker waiting for the B17! I just needed for a few seconds of footage, it's a very short time but I like to keep my movies historical and can not put my self in using another bomber if in reality it was a B-17.

I rather wait, for the next patch and add-on, believe it or not it does make a different on how planes behave in the movie, it looks more realistic to real-life newton laws.

Can't wait to check out your latest movie, my current one is going on already for about 12~15 minutes! 3 times as much as the first one I made in February 2003. I would like to know how to user your compression technique since movies are becoming longer and higher quality, don't wish to make it a monstrous download for many out there that don't have the bandwidth to download it.
