Look at your "SNAP VIEW" and "PAN VIEW" commands, try "Toggle Snap/Pan View" (F9 by default) and you will see the difference.

 "Toggle Snap/Pan View" - nothing changes while toggling. Nothing to be seen.  :(

These are commands for switching views with the keyboard, if for example you look up in SNAP mode when you press the button the view moves in programmed direction and when you release it returns to the central view (forward). If you switch to PAN mode when you press the button for example "pan view up" view rises 45° and stays in this position, if you press again view go up next 45° and stay looking at the vertical (90°), to look forward again, you have to press "center view" button. We could say that SNAP is for quick glances like in combat and PAN to control the sky during normal flight. This is already history, I think that today everyone flies with "Track" or emulate mouse with hat or change the view with hat...

Just for reference, these are the required settings for absolutely maxed out graphics in IL-2:

Please check the sections and settings as described below, usually all mentioned parameters should be in your conf.ini already, so you just have to change them accordingly.

All type of cards:

Hi SAS~Storebror,

this recommendation in post #5 is now 10 years old. Therefore my question: are these recomendations still valid, up to date, and comprehensive for the current mods like VP mod or BAT mod? Or are there  new developments/new features (e.g. effects=2) to be considered in order to improve further the graphical quality? I think this information or a new summary table might also be interesting for other IL-2 dummies like me.

What's the impact of "effects=2" in the [RenderOpenGL] part of the conf.ini onto the graphic's quality? My impression is: no impact at all. But the impact onto the fps rate may be severe when it comes to scenes limited not by the GPU but by the CPU performance (multiple heavy explosions, severe smoke and fire etc.). Can someone comment on this?

In scenes where you don't see no impact, there is no performance impact either.
If there is a performance impact (and yes, there is... mainly when there's lots of smoke around), then there is a visual quality difference as well, but honestly it's not worth it.
From my own experience, the single thing I notice most between effects=1 and effects=2 is the presence and/or quality of smoke shadows.
