Please, I emplore you, for the sake of the game and all that is holy, do not write a review about IL2.

If you don't like the jet, don't fly it. The gunsights work just fine.


But if you calm down, you might try Shift F1, otherwise, stay out of the Bf-109 and Fw-190 too. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I also recommend reading the Essentials link at the top of the GD page, and consider possibly doing a search for your problem. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif Hope this helps, good luck and

A quick google reveals this website:

http://www.viavga.com/default.asp?PageID=30&Review=22

I'm inclined to feel the Pacific Fighters review is plagirised from this site considering "Sammy B's" diatribe is a cut down version of the one on the posted link.

Edit : Yes, it appears that the literacy in this article is much higher than other reviews on the website you write reviews for. I'd suggest contacting whoever runs the site.

Plagarised some poppycock, too, hehe


" Planes such as the Zeke and Corsair have multiple variants, representing their continued development during the war. Their associated increases in performance are also modelled so that, for example, a 1940 Zero will find itself at a disadvantage should it go up against a late war model of itself. "



a zero vs zero fight? I'll take the "disadvantaged" 1940 EVERYTIME

hahaha

LOL! No way! The bigger horsies in the late model Zero will allow it to pull E moves that the '40 version can't follow!

Maybe if you got into tight turn jockying for an inside corner the '40 might... just might squeek out a little more turn, but thats just because it's lighter.

Yeah, really, goes without saying.

All about how the allied P.Iic is a biplane and everything.

Lesson in the 3 R's, perhaps?


Adding on, I also found you calling the Gladiator Mk.I an axis aircraft pretty funny. And how the Go229 is a stealth bomber. Keep the funny stuff coming!

It was, but the "Gladiator" in question was actually a Swedish version, and was designated J8 (Gladiator Mk.I) and J8A (Gladiator Mk.II).

Were Finland actually part of the Axis pact? I thought they just had a trade agreement with Germany because that they were both fighting the USSR.

I do not see why I catch all of this flak for asking a simple question about the gunsite. As far as I can tell, the cannons actuall appear to be firing upwards and the site is not shown in the cockpit. As far as the Reviews are concerned, I have it written in a notebook and have had it since I started taking notes on the game. I do not care what anyone else thinks because I know that I and I stress "I" wrote the thing.
PS The Gladiator is used in the Axis in-game. Yes I know that it was used in Africa by the British in WW2. The Axis also used it as well. You name a fighter in WW2 and I can most of the time tell you what year a particular model was made. I have a degree in history and have alot of knowledge on WW2. There were no innacuracies in the review.

Also to Cajun.
Thanks for Backing me up on the Gladiator. As well as sticking up for me

Your name answers your first question. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


The "Gladiators" used by the "axis" were the Swedish versions, designated J8, and J8A. They were specifically given DIFFERENT designations in the game. There is a reason why we just don't have the same cockpit being used for the J8A and the Gladiator MkII.

As for your review, I do stand by my statement that it is a poor one, written by someone who does not know the game well. You needn't lecture me about the game, as it is futile at best. Do not take it personally, but your review does not give the IL2 series its proper due.

For someone specializing in WWII History, you sure make me chuckle when you call the Go-229 a stealth bomber. Oh, and also that one bit about P51's going at it with Zero's being unrealistic.

LStarosta. There was a mistake that was my fault made on the site. I sometimes use other reviews to compare my work with and the one posted was from another site. People will claim I copied it from antother site which is half true. I have made a rebutal and the updated review should be up soon. Hopefully people wont hold this mistake against me or more importantly the site. I do appreciate constructive criticism as it only makes someone better. I know the Do229 isnt a stealth bomber and that it never saw action in WW2. It was just another of Hitler's promised wonder weapons. I do hope that you go to the site and read the review I meant to have there in the first place. I never even noticed that the review wasnt mine to begin with and if I offended anyone by what I posted on here I am sorry and hope my appology is acceptable.

Also I didnt mean I had a degree in WW2 History, just history and I study the greater aspects of WW2. I do know alot about the Aircraft and major battles of WW2. Im not going to get another argument going on here about a simple biplane. Thats one that I really do not know that much about but that it was used mainly by the British in Afrika. But there are accounts of the Axis using this aircraft after capturing a few of them on the ground.

Look pourshot, I stated what happened. If you dont believe it fine. I dont really care. I did not mean for that review to be posted. It was a simple mistake. I never go to the site to read my reviews as I already know what it says. Go to the site when the review that "I" wrote is up and you will see the diffrence. Im not claiming to be the best reviewer in the world or anything and I dont see every single person agreeing with my views. You know the old saying "Opinions are like asses, everyone has one". You can knock me all you want but dont hold anything against the website. The person who runs it and I are having a good talk about it now. I may not be reviewing for them anymore and if I'm not, then I dont blame them for kicking me out. It "WAS" my fault. I am not putting this on anyone but myself. Also if you are all so mighty why dont you write your own reviews. other than that the rest of you can go do unmentionable things one another, I dont care. But my God, just drop this. It is over some stupid mistake that I made. I am not back pedaling. Simply stating a fact.
Deal with it!

There is an important distiction between these. You should not be slammed for something that is bacically accurate. (If another country buys an F-16, adds or deletes some stuff for thier specific mission requirements and call it a W-505, it's still an F-16.) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

However, I would expect someone who is trying to come off as professional and knowledgeble to not post a frantic cry for help when reviewing a product, when the answer is in the documentation. I can excuse a new player for this, and often assist them with this frequently asked question, and even try to suggest reviewing the docs. But, if you're going to review games, I expect much more from you than the average Joe. This is what you're supposed to be doing, reading the docs, exploring the sim/game, researching. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Yeah I know but all I was doing was trying to find out why the sites on the Go229 would not work as seen in the recorded track. Shift F1 done nothing and then the big debate on the review. I already stated that it WAS copied from another site but was Mistakenly posted as my review. When the review is posted that I actually wrote, I am sure you will see that I am very capable of doing an honest fair review. I even went in and done a small section on Multiplayer even though I do not really play online that much. Ive only flown one coop and to my suprise, was a 31 player game ran extremely well even though I only have a connection speed of under 56K. Just give the site another chance and read the review that should be posted soon.

Nope. Shift F1 does nothing in the Go229. Everything else is fine. I would never have complained about the 229 if I hadnt seen the track it is in. It shows the gunsite inside the cockpit but when I try, the cannons fire upwards and there is a bar between the windshields right down the middle. I can see where the gunsite is supposed to be but cannot actually see it. Do you know what track Im talking about? Also on a side note, Ive decided to resign from the website as Im afraid Ive caused people from going to the site and it really needs all the traffic it can get. I was like the rest and only a volunteer anyway so I will not be missed.

This is what you should see. Perhaps Shift F1 is not mapped at the moment. What version of IL2 are you running? Make sure you have the correct patches as well.

Additionally, Shift F1 will also do something similar, but less dramatic for the Bf-109, Fw-190 and P-47D-10.

Enabling it also has an effect on sights that are normally centered, by getting a little tighter, otherwise, the realistic head movement under G's can take you out of position to see the reflection on the sight.

In other words, if your fighting in cockpit and want to be more accurate, Shift F1 in any plane will help.

Oh, and the guns firing upward is a piont of view thing. With Shift F1 (gunsight view), the shells fire like you'd expect them too.
