Free Flight Problems in CoD Blitz
« on: October 11, 2019, 03:01:11 PM »

Hello,

       I am having some problems playing CoD Blitz and I am hoping that someone out there with more knowledge than myself can help me resolve these problems.

       Firstly, is there a way to assign the top button on my stick to enable HOTAS function so I can look around without having to constantly punch keys, especially as this changes the view to presets instead of the incremental changes with the button? Secondly, I've also noticed that it appears that Free Flight is only possible by selecting from a menu of presets, such as English Channel, France, etc. and these all start in the air. I'd like to be able to select an airfield and an aircraft and do a cold and dark start with a takeoff, cruise, and landing. As it seems now I'd have to land a selected aircraft in one of the preset missions and shut it down so I could start over, which is annoying. I've tried using the Training/Solo options changing the aircraft, but no matter what I do when I click Fly the mission always starts with the Moth. Any thoughts here?

       Of possible interest may be the annoying side effect that I noticed  after I finally got my joystick working. When I played the game it seemed as though I could never maintain altitude even with full power and always ended up in the Channel. I later discovered upon going into the cockpit view and watching the gauges that the boost and rpm values were constantly dropping, even though the throttle on my Saitek throttle quadrant was full forward. The game had picked it up when I assigned it but it was working in reverse, full forward was idle and full aft full power. Maybe I was flying a French Spitfire. I tried ticking the reverse box, and now I get the correct response, although the pick up seems a bit slow. Has this happened to anyone else?

       Thanks to everyone for their kind attention and help. Any and all responses will be welcome.

Hi NavyAce.
There is so much information out there to find but let me signpost you to a few places ;)

Hope this helps? There are also a lot of missions available that allow you to take off but most of these are custom built.

Finally probably best to register at the ATAG and BoS websites as there is more likely a chance of your posts being seen by the CloD community, Cheers, Mysticpuma

Indeed, as much as we'd like to help, our CloD knowledge is pretty limited.
ATAG is probably the best place to go, with il2sturmovik forums being the 2nd best.

Hi Guys,

       Thanks for the information. By the way, I built a start up take off circuit landing mission and it works except in spite of placing the first WP at the head of the runway the screen loads with the aircraft in a hangar. If I run the mission in autopilot it actually starts there and follows the circular taxiway all the way around to where I placed the first WP. Very strange. I have two follow up questions about CoDBlitz that I'd like to run by you as you seem to be pretty plugged in. I'll also put this out in the forum for general help.

       Can CoDBlitz be modded (aircraft, maps, ships) like the standard Il-2 and Il-46? The reason I ask is that although I realize the game is about the Battle of Britain and its immediate aftermath I would like to use the superior graphics to play against Japan rather than Germany or Italy, especially pitting the CoDBlitz Spitfire and Hurricane against a Zero or Oscar. I wouldn't even need another map as I could fight over water where the terrain would be irrelevant. I'd also like to do a Beaufighter strike mission against enemy warships, but the current library does not have many ship options. Any information you can supply would be greatly appreciated.

       Thanks again for your time and expertise.
