    Il2 Pilots needed...

    Hi Guys,

    Hex here again, thought I might also drop a thread about IL2 Interest's with OLDr, CFODDER said there was interest's in the past.

    Heres some vids to get the blood flowing.

    [ame="http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=G60fP6EPZIo"]YouTube - IL-2 Forgotten Battles "Legend: The Bf-109" by Gutted[/ame]

    If your keen grab a jstick, get IL2 1946 ($40 AUD in stores, or $US9.99 on Steam) and join up.

    I was look at this on Steam the other day and wasn't sure if it was still played or not, I know the game was pretty good in the day and I haven't played a flight sim in a while, so I would suckorz at it, but I would make good bait :D

    I haven't played it and have heard it's bloody complicated to get into. That been said tho I do like a good flight sim so I will definitely get it when I have some more funds on the CC :).

    Also, we have had a forum for this in the past which has been retired, if we get enough interest that can be reconstituted :).

    Have 're-animated' our original forum back under OLDr Games, have a look at some of the posts there and there's some good links from Chippo on the game.

    If anyone wants to put some more stuff up then feel free.

    Here's a note, don't try and use a game pad..... I stalled the plane 3 times and ended up in the drink, wouldn't let me bank and roll.

    No gameport header on this motherboard, so my original Sidewinder FF is a no go...

    Will look at throwing some parts at my old motherboard just so I can plug the J/stick into

    Have the game & a joystick. Think I'll be up for an OLDr Squadron :) It's not that hard to get flying & have some fun, set your realsim settings to something simpler, should do the trick.

    I need a power cord for my Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 sitting at home, it's gone missing and sadly enough we do not have any controllers at work, I checked this morning. If I can get one for it I will have a go tonight crashing into stuff. Now being new to this game, are we able to say, have some pilots in bombers on a mission while the others fly fighter escort? That's something I have always wanted to do, man I used to love flying the B17 in Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe.
