Well i known how to take off :o
Lots to cover....
First, go to the following site, the Pacific Fighters forum:
Don't worry, it covers all the IL-2 series games. Right at the top, you'll find links for all the patches, the patch order, and all that. Also stickies for the most-asked questions.
You will need a joystick to enjoy the game. You do not need anything fancy for a WWII sim; I have a standard Saitek Cyborg.
There are a very large number of aircraft in the game, and it's probably not possible to master all of them. Pick the one's you're going to be using and practice. There is (in the game files) a nice PDF of all the aircraft specs. Takeoff speed, landing speed, best cruise, supercharger settings, etc, etc.
The "B" key is the default brake key. No left or right, but the aircraft will bias on which way the rudder is held. There is a default "gunsight view" key in the control menu.
If you can take off reliably you're making progress already!
Seriously, this is a real "simulation" game and expect to spend some time before you get comfortable with flying and fighting these aircraft.
Jesus Christ, you can take off? I've been playing the damn game for over a year and taking off is still a hit-and-miss thing. Controlling that bloody death-trap all over the frikken' airfield, praying you get up enough speed before you run out of runway.
Landing is easy, it's just a matter of slowing down enough at hitting the ground right. Infact, if you're desperate, you can land the plane without the wheels if you do it right. You need to sacrifice a wing or two, but you can land.
A couple of take-off tips:
When you're just practicing, use the "no cockpit" view for a while till you get familiar with rudder inputs and such.
Most online servers (the better ones anyway) will limit you to cockpit view, so transition as soon as possible. When you line up on the runway, try lining up your gunsight with a cloud or other object to assist in staying lined up.
Make sure you apply the proper flaps setting before trying to take off. Most all the aircraft have a "lockable" tailwheel. When you are lined up, lock the tailwheel. This will prevent a lot of wandering till your tail comes up.
Bring the aircraft up to full throttle before releasing the brake, especially if you are on a short runway.
Today on the morning i practiced Quick Battle, whit a MIG 1946 (Jet) and some spitfires and P38's vs AC5M (Aichi Val) and Bettys
Unlimited ammo and rookie planes xD for practice whiht default controls
I shooted down my first plane (5 minutes shooing at large / medium / short range XD)
Before patch it, im going to use WW1 style planes for practice, but i have a little problem, theres a mission (Hungarian Fighters - Bombers) FIAT plane.
The target is eliminate Russians PLanes and AA's
But i dont known how to drop a Bomb
Whats the Key... Thanks a Lot!!!!!!!
IIRC its the enter, the button below and above and the spacebar. try them
Look through the "controls" menu. Quite a lot are user defined and all can be mapped wherever you want them. Use of the bombsight on most of the bombers is a little complicated, there are tutorials on the site I mentioned.
Is multiplayer any good? I've never played IL2 multiplayer. I have FB,AEP?, PF, but i usually just make huge elaborate SP missions. Like night time bombing missions over berlin, in a huge squadron of bombers with insane AAA and interceptors of all sorts, searchlights, Fires, ground units. Very immersive! :D You need a decent rig just to run one of my missions hehehe :smokin:

Yeah, mutiplayer's good. The only problem for me is that other players seem to be able to magically buzz around me with like, perfect handling but if I even so much as try to lazily turn to the left my plane will stutter like there's an earthquake going on. Because of this, I usually stick to bombing.
One time I was flying a HE-111 on a really populated server (40 or so people) and I managed to carpet bomb all 4 targets at once, shoot down 13 enemy planes with my gunners, and then I managed to land it even though it was completely shot up, missing the rudder and 1 rear elevator, one missing engine with the other on fire (almost out of fuel too) and most of my crew dead.
I then crash landed on 2 wheels (other one ripped off, along with my landing flaps). When I touched down the remaining 2 wheels ripped off, along with my wings when I hit the runway. Surprisingly, Me, and one other crewman survived the ordeal and I managed to rack up a total 13,000 points, which is like, a godly amount. :smokin:

Is it possible to trade mission files? Well, more like, is it possible for you to send me one of those files!!! Does it work like that? Anyways, while flying with the joystick I keep the mouse on the left and use it like the hat switch, I like it better this way, I can look left... a little bit or alot, without the "steps" of a hat switch, its much smoother. Maybe newer joysticks dont work this way.
