Ok i went online for the first time with this IL2 FB, and i have to say it was just ok. I did the deathmatch thing and it was fun for about 10 minutes, but it got old. Are the coop missions more involved? I dunno, but i like an objective when i fly, not just flying in circles trying to get on everyones 6
The multiplay was pretty smooth on my weak *** dialup connection, and the scenery was pretty good.
I did notice a plane that was bombing, but 'what" i have no idea. i quickly took out this guys controls and laughed all the way to watch him disintegrate onto the tarmac below. I guess i have to download some good coop multiplay missions.

A scripted Dog Fight map has objectives with Dog Fight action.
My three-team server has objectives waiting to be exploited by the witty.
You just have to find the right server.
There are 'Ho hum' ones about.
BTW, where online did you play? (HL or Ubi)

I played on UBI & found a server listed as dogfight but I guess it was one of the scritped ones. RED VS Blue each side having 100 aircraft & pilots with other objectives listed. When one battle was over the tiem period, season & objectives changed. It was great. I really am not that interested in red on red or blue on blue personally.

Like was mentioned it is hard to find what a server is until you log into it. I was just trying those with the best ping as I am too stuck with 56k until i win the lottery.

Is there a list of servers that have these kind of battles ?

BlitzPigs in Hyperlobby host a lot of scripted servers. I don't only because I like my three-team set and the scripting isn't built for that yet. In Hyperlobby a lot of host will put a description in their title. Mine says Russia vs Germany vs Allies (w/T-storms <= sometimes) a lot of the Pig servers will say scripted in the title. Also you can't always go buy the ping shown in HL. My server shows red bars because I have a firewall, but I have a great connection and a strong computer and lag usually isn't an issue.

Oh, OK, Great to know. I took one look at the pings on Hyperlobby & thought no-way will i be able to play here....

Nothing aginst the 3 way server as i have'nt even tried it. If it creates balance it might be jsut the thing. I'll give HL a try ASAP moving soon tho ;( pain in the keister.

Are Blitz-Pig servers ID'd bya BP or something ?

Most of us use BlitzPig_(insert name) on Hyperlobby. Sometimes BlitzPig_g00se will host as The_Dude, other than that most of us use our BlitzPig tag.

I fly HL only online and have a 56K. I have no problems (or at least very few).

If you like things more objective oriented then scripted servers, coops, and online wars are probably for you. Personally I like Virtual Online War best so far. Very much objective oriented and even better with voice comms.

Hey Gemini,
I was at the UBI server i guess, cuz it was updating some ubi patch before i entered the game.

VOW is currently the main online campaign running. It is still in beta stage, but all members may fly and your stats are recorded. To join go to http://www.vow-hq.com/ and register. You will need to select which team you will fight for (axis or allies). You don't have to join a squad in order to join VOW, but I recommend it. Also, most DF servers at ubi.com suck. Most players are at Hyperlobby. I run scripted DF servers alot there. They are historical and usually full realism + GPS + speedbar. COOPs can be fun, but they vary in quality greatly.

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.

Try HyperLobby http://hyperfighter.jinak.cz/
In my opinion HyperLobby gives you more choices of where and what you want to play.

I still prefer UBI over HL, but I have both installed, because at times I don't feel like hosting and no games that I enjoy playing are up... So I lurk at HL.

Ow, doesn't really matter, as long as I can find my way around if my plane isn't showed on the map.
