yes, the missing word would be tailwheel.
still living in IL-2 legacy land, where tailwheel is unlocked by default.
really have to start from scratch here.
and....that's cool :D

okay, another quick question:
re: the campaign, which you need to play online - is it a single player campaign, or is/can/must it be multiplayer?
my guess is it's single player, in which case why do you need to play it in online mode?
enlighten me, por favor....

The Dgen is not on your machine, the Dgen is at Big brother's.
when you request a Mission,
he writes it right quick and sends you the assigments on the fly...
that's why...

(also to grab a copy of your stats , hum hum...)

yeah, it's all a bit too 'Big Brother' to my liking. i honestly don't want someone watching every move i make with my game, when i just want to be left in peace and quiet to just get on with it myself.
as much as i want to support this, it's beginning to make me feel a bit queasy, the more i see/hear.
well, maybe just me and my paranoia, lol

Just a wild guess, but this might be related to "cheater protection" as well.
Since the mechanisms of BoS enforce you to play all those single player campaign missions in order to get your aircrafts unlocked, this would be the first attack point for cheaters.
When there'd be "saved game state" files offline on your PC, they could be altered before they're uploaded to the Steam Server, so you'd finish a sortie with 100 kills or something like that. Or you simply start 20 missions and immediately abort them, but in the saved game files you set them to be finished successfully.

As I said, just a wild guess. I'm not a fanboy of this "constantly online" thing either.

Best regards - Mike

I am not happy with this either. I siriously am not. But then again, the Grind is so `well written` that it has very limited value and limits the impact this has to me.
So far, they can "Stick their Dgen in a Zip File", if you know what i mean.

it's likely to be able to track stats (use your game on any PC in the world!) [lolz]

and maybe for licence protection (one dude uses it in euro times, another uses it in asia times, switching accounts as timezones come and go, relocating in nanoseconds) [shut up, i am beaming myself wherever i want to in real time! Legit!]

My new best settings, reduced shimmer, 'cloud jaggies and good performance for Nvidia users am very happy with this result, hope is some use for some people with similar equipment- i5 3570 and GTX770 2gb

Regarding the X52 and BoS: I tried to set the wheels on the throttle as elevator and rudder trim, but they only work in one direction... e.g. if I twist the elevator trim to "down", my plane gets trimmed down, but it won't trim up if I turn the wheel up....
Any ideas?

Best Regards,
