Just came to say hello, having just bought the complete edition yesterday. Just getting into the mode of flying, (am avid U-Boat Commander.)

Anyway hi...let's see how long it takes to get the hang of it.

Oh GOOD! version 4.08 is the latest, most current version

You only said you had the "Complete Edition", not that you'd patched it up to the the current version

You have no troubles http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Welcome Maverick,

There was a PF/IL2 combination available in stores called the Complete Edition....or something along those lines. As cid said THAT WAS complete, but no longer.

You have the right edition.

Getting off a carrier can be tough. Congrats.(and you didn't even ask how to do the wheel chocks. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif)

Still cant get off the deck whilst 'inside' have to look from rear....will endeavour to get better

It's all about fun. Sit on the tail fin if you like. Get used to the controls, then go for more challenge.

Rule number one: HAVE FUN!

Rule number two: SEE NUMBER ONE!

Just remember to open your throttle 110% then release your chocks. Some aircraft will allow a mix change as well. Higher mix will gain some performance at the deck.

Well guys, have read Bearcat99's 'Nuggets' guide and having followed that have realised that the most impartant thing is that a 'joystick is required' and as such am tracking an X52 online....in for a penny in for a pound (or more)

I think there are more of us out there, I almost never post in forums but I read them all the time. You dont know me but i know you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

And when I have trouble, I search because there is a 99.99% chance that someone else have had the same problem, and I do believe that there are more like me out there it is just that we dont get noticed http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the comments Dkoor,

Yesterday got delivery of my X52 Pro controller, brilliant, just in the throws of setting up all the buttons, switches etc.

Being one of the more 'Senior' combatants it takes me longer to figure everything out, but am getting there.

Great game, difficult now splitting time between this, SH3/4, but I'll find someway!!!!!

Cheers Maverick.....

Waldo...mmmmm..try to understand that there are people that are not computer savy, and when you come into this forum, before you can look anything up, you have to figure out the shortcut codes you guys like to use, I'm greatful that you guys help us noobs, or I wouldn't be haveing the fun that I am. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

My "Straight From the Farm" campaign will help you with carrier takeoffs and landings Maverick. It is mentioned in the Nugget's Guide Bearcat mentioned or you can follow the link below. Installation instructions are in the readme file included with the campaign.
