I suck at this game, pretty bad. I have the basics down for maneuvering for the most part, but I could really use some pointers as to what I'm doing wrong in certain situations.

If there are some of you who wish to get in on a 2 Vs 2 sometime I would love to get some friendly practice with some nice guys who wait till I'm off the runway http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The best learning tool for air combat is the quick mission builder. Start 1v1 and work with the aircraft until you become familiar enough with one to stay with it for a while.

Make a video track of each mission and hit the "T" key to put wingtip smoke on the player. Then play back your video track, moving around as you see fit. This way you'll see what you are doing right or wrong.

You will learn doing it this way.

Good luck

You might want to take a look at www.joint-ops.com (http://www.joint-ops.com)

They're not a squadron, they're a virtual flight school for IL2. They've been doing this for six years, and have a very sophisticated operation.

I'm just finishing their Basic Flight School (BFS), 8-three hour sessions, and have learned a lot. There were over 20 students in my class, but there was one instructor for every 4 students, and for some sessions one for every 2 students.

I'll be continuing on with my training.

Oh, and yes, it's all free...

Good luck.

Well considering you shot me down online the other night you will only need the basics (I was on your side and landing at our runway). First thing is get teamspeak (free), get on teamspeak on the server one WC. If you do this i will walk you through everything you need to know and from there you can practice on your own. Have a pad and pencil handy to take some notes and keep them next to you. I told you a few things yesterday online but it is much more easier on teamspeak ok. I will be on after 3:00 today and during the night as well so look for me and ask for me on teamspeak, my name is black. Will you be on later today or tonight? Be prepared to fail alot and be shot down but dont be discouraged, everyone dies and everyone has to go through the steps in order to become good at this game and really enjoy it, believe me it is worth it when you do. Online is a different ball game compared to scripted super A.I. offline flying. The friends you meet online and fight with are great and the game really shines when this happens. Let me know when your going to be on but first buy a headphone with a microphone on it and download teamspeak and set it up ok. http://www.goteamspeak.com/?page=downloads

The first one under windows (if thats what you have)

Also look here for tips and guides...http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/9121094645

Also read up on CEM "combat engine management" which deals with Prop Pitch, radiator settings, Trimming the plane, dont worry too much for now about these things but it is handy to know a little. I will walk you through the basics of them so you understand what they do and how to use them.

I have a few things to get done but I should be online at 3 if not a lil later. I was on several servers last night, but I totally remember thinking you were the oblivious opposition and shootin you down lol. Sorry again http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. I have a mic, and teamspeak.

Gimme the server name again and I'll meet you on there for sure.

Just get online, chat and fly mate.

I recommend UKdedicated 2 or 3 depending on how confident you are on settings.

They both have historical planesets and very freindly admins+regulars. They will answer any questions you have.

Make sure that you make your chatbox bigger by opening it and dragging the corener bigger with the mouse, make it about 6 lines, so you dont miss messages from your teammates or team.

Here is the site and forums :-

Look at the good pilots and wing up with them, watch what they do and ask them questions. They will help you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I second Joint Ops, awsome bunch of people, Basic Flight School will have something for even the veteran to learn. Highly recomended for all.
