Kiwi, yes that is with the mod installed again. Also, that ~wrapper.cache file is in the #SAS folder and I think that got installed somehow after the F9F did which may be why it works. So I will delete that file and see what happens. If I get the same thing, I will do an entirely new install and update and start over.

Okay so I am guessing that the wrapper.cache thing was the issue. I deleted that file and disabled the mod file caching and it loaded fine and flies, etc. The only thing is, I don't get a nice smooth frame rate like I did before. It seems to kind of stutter a bit and every few seconds I get about a half second stick that makes it very hard to get that Zero in my sights. It may be totaly unrelated but could the mod caching cause that?

Well, it use to be smooth as glass for the most part. I have an Asus G73 with a i7 QM720 @ 1.6ghz, 8gb DDR3 and a Radeon HD 5870 1gb DDR5. Could the mod files caching disabled be what slowed it down? I wonder if I get a new fresh install and get the mods working one at a time, and THEN turn the mod files caching on, will that bring it back where it was...? I'll find out, but one thing at a time. I will start on a fresh install this evening. Thanks again for all your help. I'll let you know what happens.

I turned the mod file caching back on and it started fine. This evening I will see how it looks and runs. Then I will disable it again and see if I can get any other mods to work. This might have been my problem all along. But fear not, I will definitely still do a fresh clean reinstall. I am kind of anal about having nice, neat directories and folders on my machine.
Kiwi, you said something about adding some anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing. How did you do that? Is it something that can be done to individual aircraft or is it something you do outside of IL2??

I'm finding at 1920 x 1080 just a little bit of AA and AF goes a long way, since I like to keep the frame rate up.


How are you getting 1920 x 1080? My machine and monitor will certainly do that but I never see anything higher than 1400 x 1050 in IL2, or 1600 x 1200 if I want it to look funny.

 So, I got really brave last night and installed IL2 - 1956... and it worked! That mod files caching was the issue all along. Anyway, I added some AA and AF and set the max resolution to 1920 x 1080 and all looks good (it shows up in the setup or in the in game video modes as 640 x 480... strange. But it looks great in the viewer). The MiG-15 and F-86 look spectacular! With the F8F, it looks good but it still stutters. The other planes run fine; smooth as silk. But for some reason the Bear is rather stuttery. Is IL2 very dependent on the GPU or is it more load on the CPU like FSX?
