Ricky back on duty!

Postby SYN_Ricky » Mon May 29, 2017 9:31 am

Hello guys,

been away from squad/forum activity and from gaming in general for quite some time now, but I still tried to follow Il-2 development from a distance. And of course the need of some virtual flying made its way back, thought quite slowly. I finally turned my (very antiquated) gaming PC on for the first time a few weeks ago and started playing a bit of Elite first, and then Il-2 once I updated everything, and I'm getting addicted again!

I flew a few sorties in solo and then on the WOL server, having quite some fun, but definitely my PC is not good any more for Il-2 with the latest improvements. Still playable, but on many occasions my FPS drops to unacceptable levels (in furballs, sometimes at landing or at takeoff on crowded airfields).
Still, while I'm saving up and looking for a new machine, I'll keep on practising a bit.

I see that some of you are flying on WOL, Random Expert and TAW, are there specific days you fly on? I registered on those three servers, and would like to try and join you some day, just to see if it's feasible with my current machine, as it's not as much fun flying alone against organized opponents.

See ya!
