Quite a lot of us now record our tracks and then play them back to make movies.
I would love to be able to switch the icons off (which I can with my scroll icon views button), and then hit record track. After I have done this, I can then switch the icons back on for the game, BUT..... the icons don't record onto the track. This would give me the best of both worlds. Playable online game, usable offline footage. PLLLLEEEAAASSEE can you do this Oleg? THanks.

BUMP. I've been waiting for this one too. It would be very nice if they'd put it in.

Do you think a screen like this would help...?

You can record a track from a track, just have a key set up in controls for quick recording.
Play back a track and you can hit the quick record button to record from that track.

I asked a while ago for a rewind feature on track playback, begged the developers I did!
Oleg replied personally to my request and said track rewind was impossible /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

A rewind function would be great, even if you were only allowed to rewind a short way back into the track. Hopefully track playback will be improved a bit for IL2 V3 /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Just a few things I've found recently when replaying my ntrk recordings:-

1. On returning from one mission I saw an enemy transport column and attacked (they weren't part of the mission), destroying 6 vehicles. The replay doesn't show me firing or the vehicles burning - it looks like I just buzz them a few times then carry on!
2. The undercarriage doesn't lower, so when I try to review (gloat over) my rare good landings, it looks like the plane's floating on air.
3. Planes are automatically removed after landing (can this be made an ini file option?) - but the replay doesn't show this, so it's possible to park on top of them... along with the undercarriage bug this can make for interesting screenshots /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Ok guys have a close look at the screenshot by Scragbat. It says it all.
The option to turn off the chat bar in playback and the option to switch off Icons on playback. This would make the perfect setup. I'm not a computer programmer, but surely in the track file there is a text event recorded that says something like 'icon on' at start of recording. This switch called (hopefully) just remove that part of the file. I would really hope it could be that simple.

Please can you address this issue Oleg, all we want is to turn Icons off during playback.....Please?

Some of our greatest online gaming moments have been captured in recorded tracks.
For the most part with icons. Developers PLEEEEEAAAAASSSSSEEEEE let us switch them off.
My screenshot? Possible do you think?

Could not a small patch be developed to enable this?

A patch like this would in no way affect current flight or damage models, so it could be realeased as a seperate patch specific for track playback.

The track playback patch download here (here's wishing).

If people used this patch it would not change their version of the game and would still let them play on 1.11 servers that didn't have the patch.

Come on Oleg /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I'm sure you could knock this up in an afternoon /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I'm dreaming aren't I....? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Yes this is good. Also give us the possibility to add cameras (by manual editing) to a track.

Thanks Bakelit, but I feel we are a minority...

Unless it's about FM we may as well talk to ourselves /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

This would be easy to implement and good for converting tracks to downloadable video files etc...
Pretty please. And bump.

That's the spirit /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

More support please!

Icons switchable on track playback is all we want.

I've finished my sandwiches but I still have some tea in my flask...
Gonna be a long night, good job I brought a sleeping bag with me.
