You can copy the original missions off the disc into FB for a trip down memory lane, you know.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

I would be interested in seeing how the flight modelling and sounds had altered rather than just the missions.
I believe someone did re do the original missions for F/B . http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I still fire up Old IL2 every now and again. There's a cracking "scramble!" mission in FW190s to intercept incoming Sturmoviks. I think it was the demo mission too, what first got me hooked.

harder to fly

and before we start an argument .. not necessarily more historically accurate just harder

the sound was vastly better than any more recent version .. even on my audigy

other than that it is a bit primitive compared to current incarnations

There are still people flying "O'l Sturmy" online at Ubi.com.As I'm one of them,I would love it if more of you would join in.

I'm actually new to online flying,but I can occasionally shoot someone down!People were right...the more you fly online the better you will be.I'm nowhere near becoming an ace.....but here's to hoping!

i dont think {IL2 Sturmovik} allowed Track ir did it?

It was not directly supported but you can still use TIR in mouse emulation mode. Be sure to remember to have a key assigned to recenter TIR, you'll need it fairly frequently in mouse emulation mode.

I disagree with many who say the original FMs were
really good. I remember a P-39 and Mig-3 that had very little climb, especially right after take off. If there was a hill in front of the runway, you were hard pressed to clear it. The initial climb after take off was a joke.

The initial climb after take off was a joke. The original models had a very pronounced modelling of the flight behaviour that occurs in real aircraft on the "back side of the power/drag curve", the flight regime below best climb speed where a decrease in speed results in an increase in drag and power required to maintain level flight. It was a tad overmodelled in the respect that some aircraft had practically no excess power available (ie: required full throttle) when maintaining level flight at or near stall speed, but otherwise it's realistic modelling.

Edit: The trick when flying the original version was to fly level (or find a valley to gently descend into if available) while accelerating up to or over best climb speed before attempting to gain altitude. Once I realised this there were very few loadouts that I couldn't successfully get off the ground in the original version http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
