I have been playing offline for a long time, mostly everything is set at full real except i use no CEM and I use distance icons. Am I gonna have to learn CEM to play on line? what percentage of servers would you say is CEM? tia

I don't know about percentages, but it seems like any of the servers on Hyperlobby that have a decent amount of pilots (>15) have CEM checked.

Two main catergories.

1) Available: Open Pit, externals, padlock, Icons, minimap, speed bar.

2) Available: Limited icons, minimap, speed bar.

Other settings are less common IMO.

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

I haven't flown a ton online, but it seems to me that many have customized icon settings; some show only friendly or enemy, sometimes plane type, etc. and some only show up within a short distance (2.0-3.0 km).

Hopefully somebody with a little more online experience will answer.

It should also be noted that you'll probably be able to find a server that suits your desires, but whether or not someone else is flying in there is another story.

i can handle any of those settings. I fly only pit anyway externals dont bother me, minimap is useful but not needed.

Anyone have a quick link handy for CEM tutorial?

Here is some reading at the temp. mudmovers site. Be aware though that some links might not work. http://magnum-pc.netfirms.com/mudmovers/Sims/FB/fb_cem.htm

Here is a good starting point. It is not a hard thing to come to grips with, but it is best to focus on a particular aircraft; this will greatly lessen the learning curve.

Also try here http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~chapman/il2guide/cemguide/intro.htm for some excellent information, it helps come to grips with the concept in general (specific engine settings are not discussed, if I remember correctly).

Beware the information given by 'Vulgar' at the mudmovers site; though it can be informative, it can also cause one to draw conclusions that are Not correct. It may be a bit dated, and does not differentiat between pitch control mechanisms (of which there is 4, or arguably 5, in FB/AEP). Again, choose a specific aircraft (or aircraft type), and feel free to ask questions.
