start to save up for a better CPU then my I7 4790 @4GHz.
Hi stan,

You just have to accept this (old) games limits.
It's tied to a single core of your CPU and that one just can handle as much as it can.
In particular, your CPU is as much as you can get for IL-2 (despite lacking the "K", it's among the fastest single core performers available).

even with Chupa's 4.12 air.ini I get very bad framerates, while considerably more aircraft in my air.ini doesn't cause such performance drop in HSFX.
We start turning in circles.
Your FPS issue seems to be effects related, not class limit related.
You could strip down your air.ini to three or four aircraft and still it would happen.

Best regards - Mike

Hey Snipperton, try my conf.ini Do not open configure wizard or use in game options since some things were changed manually and will be overridden if you do so and tell me whats your PC specs, especially your CPU.

Amen. You're right (as always), I'm pretty sure that the bottleneck of my system is there. Thank to you Mike and Chupa, I figured out a config which makes WAW#8 playable for me provided I don't ground attack. I can live with it until I can buy a new PC.  :)

It's been two or three weeks since I constructed my 4.12.2/CUP installation, and although the frame rate for DOF and TJA have always been fine, that for WAW was terrible. I've been trying to get a stock career started, as a Russian fighter pilot on the Central and South fronts. The first mission works great in the Stock Game option, but not so well in WAW. Much tweaking of my stock (Radeon) graphics card and various conf.ini settings made no apparent difference. But then I discovered this thread, and I'm happy to report that Lighten_Up has made a substantial improvement in my WAW frame rate. It still tends to hesitate during large explosions and lightning storms; I'm hoping that a new graphics card, perhaps by NVidia, may obviate those stutters as well.

Many thanks, Chupacabras. I can now actually fly missions in WAW.  ;D

These modded air.ini files work for me. In the stock game I get between 45-60 FPS all settings maxxed out at 1920x1200, rarely dropping below 60FPS except when taking off. The modded files help enormously, although using anything other than stock I do experience lower frame rates. Unmodded my rate can drop to single figures and that's with an Nvidia 980 card....

Great work!

You are using WaW part 12 right?
This mod was tested on a rather weak PC with WaW part 8 and I managed to bring fps back to the level of a stock game, unfortunately I couldn't do the same with anything past WaW part 8.
If you want top fps, just stick with WaW 08.

Yes, I was using pat 12. The mods do make  difference, but on average I'm still down on the stock FPS. I'm going back to 8 and will let you know the outcome.

No significant difference in frame rate using Mod 8, to be honest. I can happily live with the stock ini  option though, and enjoy consistently smooth frames rates coupled with the additional improvements that CUP brings to the original game.

Cheers

Uploaded again as attachment of first post.

Do not forget: this air.ini is only for World at War module part 08!
