Is it possible for the player to control certain controls, while the autopilot handles the rest? Is there some sort of application that lets you do this?

I'm planning on doing some flight tests and it would be great to have control over the engine settings while the autopilot handles the flying.

I am going to be a real pain here, and say 'yes it's possible' but you can't have the only application for IL-2 I know that will do this in a way that lets you set autopilot parameters in flight (though there may be others out there...). As I understand it LesniHU has to be programmed before flight. The reason you can't have the application is because it is one wot I wrote, and it is very much in the prototype stage, and unlikely to ever be finished. Knowing now what is possible, I think it would be better to start again from scratch than to try to 'fix' what I've got, and package it all so others can use it. Just maybe I might start again and do it properly, or at least better, but I'd say that the earliest possible release date is likely to be six months after SOW:BOB is released. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I've kept fairly quiet about this because it is not really fair to tell people about software they can't have, and are unlikely to ever get. Of course, they can simply choose to call me a liar as it'd be damn difficult for me to prove that it exists at all...

Liar!!



I understand, Andy. Thanks. I hope you will get it finished one day. I don't want to push you though, if you don't want to work on it anymore, than that's your decission. I'll just have to make due with programming before flight. That's not really a big problem for what I'm planning to do anyway...
