IL-2 CoD

Recommended Posts

Okay, I have the game up and running, patched to 4.312.

Anything else I need?

Can someone send me their configuration file so I can get a jump on setting up my stick, etc? I am using a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro.

If we're serious about kickstarting the group on CoD, I suppose we ought to sweep the dust off the IL-2 Sturmovik forum and do game related posts there?

We have new rules, Herr Uberprotektor. No camels.

Get yourself a Kubelwagen. They don't spit on you and you don't have to keep a supply of bramblebush on hand for feed.

Young ladies like riding in kubelwagens.

Of course, in North Africa you can't always tell the young ones from elderly matriarchs. :)

My confUser.ini is attached as a zip file. Unzip it after downloading.

You can use it as-is, or rename mine to something like csimConfUser.ini.

If you rename mine, just load it from Cliffs of Dover's in-game controller setup screen (just use the big "Load" button).

If you use it without changing the name, put it into the appropriate folder before you start the game.

Mine was inside C:\Users\<username>\Documents\1C SoftClub\il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover - MOD\

If you don't have the Team Fusion mod installed, the default location is C:\Users\<username>\Documents\1C SoftClub\il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover\

NOTE: My HOTAS stuff is included in my config file. Chances are, none of this will work for you. Be sure to calibrate and map your own joystick/HOTAS and rudders.

I want to add that I don't use 99% of the configurable keys. I only use a handful like "i" to start the engine, F1, F2, F3 view keys, flaps up and down are mapped to my throttle, and I use the coolie hat on my joystick to look around. I have rudder pedals but I haven't mapped the toe brakes ... I just mapped "wheel brakes" to a button on my throttle to slow down after landing (just a gentle touch on that button or you'll go ass over tit!). Oh, and "g" to raise and lower my gear. That's it. In short, I start the engine, slam the throttle to the firewall, take off, kill Jerries. Rinse. Repeat.

In Pacific Fighters I had my radiator toggle mapped to a key on my throttle, but in Cliffs I haven't needed it. I also don't bother with trim. Gunny is a master at trimming-out his aircraft, but I prefer to just compensate with manual inputs ... that way I don't have to remember to re-trim while in battle. Prop pitch? Don't care. It was something I'd do in Pacific Fighters where we flew long CAPs, but in Cliffs, the action either happens instantly or soon after take-off, so again, not something I worry about.

I understand that my minimalist approach may not appeal to everyone, but I just want to point out that newcomers to this sim don't need to know all the keys and complex engine management steps to get up flying and mixing it up with the Luftwaffe.

And another thing ...

If you are new to Cliffs, you are going to start out hating take offs.

At first, you'll crash ... a lot. Resist the urge to trim your aircraft to compensate for the torque. Trimming for take-offs is fine for when you have lots of time, but you'll do well to know how to manually trim with simple rudder and joystick compensations for those inevitable scramble missions.

Just get the nose out of the hangar, point the nose in the general area of the runways, drop your flaps, then increase your throttle. Not too quickly, but with steady authority.

She'll want to pull to the left, but compensate with right rudder. Don't stomp on it, or you'll start fish-tailing. Gentle. Ease back on the right rudder before the nose comes back to your intended take-off line. If you wait until the nose comes back to the imaginary center-line of your take-off path, then you'll start to oscillate side-to-side.

You've got the tail up now and things are good ... but there's one last gotcha. The left wing will want to stall (or dip) just as you're about to rotate. Be ready for this by pushing your stick to the right ... this will raise your left wing to compensate.

What at first seems impossible, will be second nature after a short while.

Oh, and look out for crap on the airfield. Sometimes there will be arty on the field. Don't hit those. They tend not to move if you hit them ... with predictable results.

For me, runways are for landing ... but optional for take offs.

Picked me up a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Sunday for $33 at Breast Buy, then got $5 off with my rewards club thingmie. Got it working. So OG, if you would, could you post how you have all the buttons set to? I have just played a few easy single play, start in the air missions to get used to flying again. Man I suck! Not that I was any good before, but worse now.

Also every time I start the game, I keep getting the "Windows User Account Control" permission box, click yes, then Steam box opens and it says first time use "Installing Microsoft VC Redistribution Package" before the game starts up. You guys getting that every time too?

Just for everyones info, don't forget to sign on to the following website. It'll make your life much easier in CoD and is an excellent source.

I'm thinking we should try for a multiplayer session. How's Friday night, say, 6:30pm MDT sound?

We can work out the kinks in everyone's install then.

I'll post my Teamspeak 3 IP in the VMF-124 squadron forum an hour before wheels-up time on flight night. If you don't have the PW for that, just private message me.

Sounds good to me, Doug. I'd love to get back into the air with the guys again. (Loud groans from the Peasants!)

I used to have all the P/Ws, etc, but cant seem to find them, so could you please get them to me again? Ta.

Thanks, Doug.

To all CSimmers, if you want to see why CoD is thought of so highly, take a look at the video on YouTube called "The Beginning of the End." It's only one of several vids made, but I think it will send shivers down your back!

I tried to put the URL here but it kept kicking me off. Something to do with a change of options or something.

You can find it in the ATAG Forum under "10 top CLOD Videos most viewed"
