    The language filter is so unsophisticated that it filters out the word 'c0ckpit'!! How stupid is that?? BTW, I hope this patch is a lot better that 4.11 was.

    Stupid enough that it has the forum admin guys stumped. There are other stupidities as well involving a "bad" word embedded in a longer innocent word.

    I just took the F4U for a spin. Acceleration on take off is much better, as is cruise speed. Just don't try to turn, you'll lose a ton of energy and have a very hard time getting it back.

    Still, it's a small price to pay for such a great series of updates to IL2.

    Thanks TD!

    Just installed it and took a few planes for a spin. Pilots head seems to move now according to mouse movement. Cool!

    You will be needing a bit more than just the 4.11m patch.
    Yes, these are compatible for your version

    But, more importantly, you will be needing 4.09m and 4.10m as well! And, in the meantime, 4.11.1m has arrived.

    Find them here: http://www.mission4today.com/index.p...ownloads&c=605
    (You may need to register at http://www.mission4today.com first to be able download the files)

    Using the titles in use at mission4today, this is what you need to download, and to install in that order:

    2- IL-2 1946 Patch 4.10 International Version

    The pilot's head will now move with trackIR? This is a feature that has been long overdue. Nice one
