It can. Sometimes I think the FM exaggerates that result a bit, but it's only a game (A really good game) and it's not like your life's actually on the line. Like I said on teamspeak last weekend on 334th Ded:

"What the hell? It's only a game; suicide can be fun!"

I think there's a Pacific fighters only selection on Hyperlobby, you might try that.

Now, that's not nice danjama. The guy could be a fledgling simaholic. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

ZeusZore, a plane stalls at low speeds and/or hard stick deflection. Going vertical and pulling on the stick is the worst thing you could do because these planes have a very low thrust to weight ratio so they quickly lose too much speed when climbing steeply which makes you reach stall speed faster. You want to either keep your speed high (above 300kph) most of the time and/or not pull too hard on the stick.

You probably need to get FB+AEP+PF merged to fly online reliably. (more servers/players)

Download Hyperlobby from here (click in this) (http://hyperfighter.sk/), there is a room there for Pacific Fighters standalone but it doesn't have much action. You might also try AllSeeingEye.

Yes, stall is normal. Stall occurs when your wing's angle of attack exceeds a critical angle. "Stall speed" is the speed at which lift at critical angle is equal to the amount of lift necessary for level flight. At higher speeds you need less angle for lift to maintian level flight, at lower speeds you'll either lose altitude or stall.

Somebody who knows more about the topic than me needs to refer ZeusZore to a thread about joystick settings, too.

THX all yes im kinda noob at this game.. and im really likin it.. but some things are not easy understandeble...

i do know the laws of fysic.. my point with stalling was when turning (roll) 90 degree.. and pull 2 turn i can only go like half way on the joy.. and that i can almost use my steering wing (http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif as flaps.. loosing speed fast.. just wanna know if that was normal... cause just got this joystick.. a GM 2600 trust.. and my old logitec i could go all the way.. but it did not go full out.. so now i have 2 really becare full.. moving to much or i stall...

i also think the setup in the game for joy is not a easy way to do it and dont get it full what all the bars does...

and i dont get (still) how you end a mission ... when shot down all and you can keep flyin or landing .. still no mission over...

ill try that lobby program thx !! any advise on joystick setting and so are very welcome !!

THX again..

You will stall if you dont have enough enrgy to come over the top of a loop, or try to climb to steep without enough speed/energy

Best explained with a ball on a piece of string hanging on a bar.

If you push the ball with enough force it will loop over the top (lots of energy). If you just push is a little it will rise a bit, then drop back, this is the equivelent of a plane stalling.

You must build energy first by climbing high or getting very fast before you attempt to pull straight up.

And rememeber these WW2 fighters are not Jet powered super planes. They havent got enough power to carry on going up at 45 degrees indefinitely, you have to climb at a shallow angle at first.

Its all about energy management, you will learn as you go on http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Ahh sorry I misunderstood your question. You mean in a turn it stall if you pull to hard.

This is plane and speed dependant. Some planes you can pull the stick all the way back and it will turn.

Other plane built for speed only, like the FW190 with a high wing loading (small stubby wings and a big body) will stall very easily if you pull to hard.

You will get used to what you can do in each plane after some practise.

First try a Spitfire, Zero or 109 to get a feel for the game before moving onto much more demanding planes like the FW190 or P51 mustang. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The mission will never stop automatically as this would prevent you watching the remaining action after you've landed, you need to press the ESC key and quit the mission.

If you've done all you need to do for that mission you'll usually get a Mission Successful message on screen, but the mission still wont exit automatically.

If you have the "No instant mission success" difficulty setting turned off, you probably wont even get the "Mission Successful" message as the only requirements you need to fulfill are not getting captured and not dying.

This is normal.

Try the FW190 for a real stall monster if you pull too hard.

You will get used to it, its what combat pilots called 'riding the stall'. How fast could could turn without making the plane go into a stall/spin.

The SPitfire has buffeting just before its about to stall in real life and in this sim too. Once oyu get used to it you will 'feel' the stall coming on and learn to ease off a bit on the tightness of your turn.

A plane turns quicker at slow speed than fast. If you are going 250kph in a SPit and pull the stick back, then it wont stall as quickly as if you were going 600kph and yanked the stick back.

When it stalls/spins in a turn, you are pushing the turn/plane too hard and it cannot cope with it.

Its how real WW2 prop planes work. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Go to: HARDWARE
and: INPUT
and adjust Pitch to about 65 or 70 on the right side 4 bars.That stopped my P-51 from snap rolling anyway.
Or, you can just recalibrate the transtesticle conflaberation of the elevator effectiveness in top torque positronic semetrical convectivity of the airfoil defication factors.

also it may be a good idea to go into the input menu and on pitch,roll and rudder give it a few notchs of filter. be easy on the stick. nice smooth motions. think like the plane is under water and you want to glide it not whip it around like a Xwing....all though the spit is a tie http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Go to the 'hardware setup -> input' section of the game. you can setup you stick here.

What you'll find it that if you move the stick back slowly it will take you longer to stall than just yanking the stick back. So when into real action you have to compromise between these two.

In the difficulty settings allow wingtip vapour trails(NOT wingtip smoke). When you see these trails you're close to stalling. Keep it there and you'll be ok. always be prepared to 'jump on the rudder' in this situation.

the trick with filter is to adjust it a notch at a time till you hit the sweet spot. i find that about half to 3/4 is about right for me. some planes IMO need more than others. i can fly the stang good with very little to no filter but in a F4u its over sensative and feels like im flying in freespace or wing commander lol. Also the type of flight stick you have and the condision it is in will also be a factor. just play around with it. also if your useing a twist handled stick for rudder youll want to change the default settings from all 100 to a curve closer to the other settings such as 15,25,35,45,55,ect. just remember what may be perfect for one plane may be slopy for another.

First, make sure you have calibrated your stick via Window's Game Controllers dialog. Then, review your game stick settings. You should consider downloading IL2-Sticks. This is a free, 3rd party tool for adjusting your joystick settings and makes it easier to do than using the in-game screen.

You do not want to have your elevator settings at 100% across the board. Having that will make it very easy to provide too much stick input and cause stalling. Everyone is different, but I have my settings quite low, with a slow but gradual increase to 100% at the rightmost bar only. Specifically, for elevator, I use: 1, 3, 6, 12, 21, 32, 44, 61, 81, 100. You might try that and play around with the settings to find something that works well for you.

ah the post above reminds me. you may be like me and every time you restart your PC your stick goes out of cal. try this when you start up the game for the first time sence starting your pc,if your on the runway before you start the engiens ect rotate your stick in full compleat ceycles about 10 times and then twist the rudder back and forth slowly. if you have the same problem as me then that will make a HUGE HUGE deffernce. youll need to do that every time you turn off your PC.

You could DL IL2Sticks <span class="ev_code_RED">(reminder to self: need to read all the posts before writing my own)</span> and set up a profile for each type of plane you normaly fly, then load up the needed stick settings before you play.
load your Spit profile and fly it for a while, then before you switch to a bomber, switch to a profile more suited for the slow, lumbering bird.

Joystick setup is one of the most important settings in this Sim.
Getting the settings to your liking makes ALL the difference in the world.

You said yourself you don`t know laws of physics.You don`t even know what a stall is.if you`re not a long time flightsimmer or a minimal sub-physician understanding most aspects of this game is tough.

Fordfan25 gave a very good tip.Recalibrate your stick everytime you reboot.Without calibration the stick tends to make jumps in inputs.This hampers your aim and most of all doesn`t let you ride the stall.

Ya it can hurt the permormance of a high turn- rate plane. I experimented with that in a Spitfire and I adjusted the pitch input to just about to the black-out point and it seems to prevent it from snap rolling. Because I used to leave the settings at default and just go real easy on the stick, but sometimes in the heat of a dog fight I would pull too far back and lose it and do a face-plant and splat-city if I was too low. But with me, lowering the elevator effectiveness helped me learn easier. But anyway, the guy should learn alright if he keeps at it, it will all come to him. But anyway, I didnt mean to tick anybody off or be unhelpful.

load your Spit profile and fly it for a while, then before you switch to a bomber, switch to a profile more suited for the slow, lumbering bird.

Joystick setup is one of the most important settings in this Sim.
Getting the settings to your liking makes ALL the difference in the world.

gause i have to learn 2 try not pulling back the joy more then 1 or 2 MM... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif If you are serious that you are stalling if you pull back more than 1 or 2 mm, then your stick setup is suspect.

First, make sure you have calibrated your stick via Window's Game Controllers dialog. Then, review your game stick settings. You should consider downloading IL2-Sticks. This is a free, 3rd party tool for adjusting your joystick settings and makes it easier to do than using the in-game screen.

You do not want to have your elevator settings at 100% across the board. Having that will make it very easy to provide too much stick input and cause stalling. Everyone is different, but I have my settings quite low, with a slow but gradual increase to 100% at the rightmost bar only. Specifically, for elevator, I use: 1, 3, 6, 12, 21, 32, 44, 61, 81, 100. You might try that and play around with the settings to find something that works well for you. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
it is not 100%.. it is more or less defualt..
ill try this.. thx !!

Also the type of flight stick you have and the condision it is in will also be a factor. just play around with it. also if your useing a twist handled stick for rudder youll want to change the default settings from all 100 to a curve closer to the other settings such as 15,25,35,45,55,ect. just remember what may be perfect for one plane may be slopy for another.
ok thx.. ill try it..

To get online, download either hyperlobby or all seeing eye.

These 2 programs are server browsers.

I think hyperlobby would be best for you because you can talk to fellow flyers too.
