I have sniffily ignored advice about OpenGL being better
than DirectX up to 5 minutes ago.
I was trying (with the new patch) to play a sort of Dunkirk thing in QMB. Me and one other Hurri vs. 4 Stukas,
the jerkiness was terrible when playing, in a flash of unoriginal brilliance, I switched to OpenGL and the difference was awesome.
BTW, either I am a hopeless shot (I am) or the Hurricanes with cannons have very limited ammo.

Regards to all fellow pilots,
happy patcher.

i don't know if it 'll help you much but, try to predict where the Stukas are going to go. try to make them fly through your fire.

I'm a crappy pilot, but one hell of a shot.

The Hurri IIc is the deadliest bird in FB.

You don't need much to shot down several planes.


just get close and fire a split sec burst and they either explode or a wing falls off.

Getting close is the problem.

Don't hold down the trigger in a Hurri IIc and spray and pray it's just a waste of ammo.

For sure. The Hispano 20mm is as good as the ShVAK, but with a larger shell, and the IIc has four of them! Beats 6 MG151/20 even, though I think Mk108 pods are close....

OpenGL all the way. The only issues with OGL are that some with ATI machines get errors. . .that said. . OGL all the way.

Performance, Quality, Stability, and no dx bugs (like icons not showing up on lower aircraft)
