I'd like to. Been a fan of the IL2 series ever since it was released. I was disappointed with the CloD release so left it until I heard it was playable. Went and played DCS A10C instead, which is awesome.

Oh sure, IL2: 1946 matches would also be welcome as an RPS event :D

I dont mind. I am available most of the time. Join RPS steam chat and find me there and I can get in touch with Egg Strang and Alethron if they arent in chat.

I'm GraveyardJimmy on steam too.

How far from a playable state is Il2-CoD currently? It's kinda my excuse for buying a flight stick but I don't want to splurge on an unfinished game.

Its not finished completely, I would wait until the beta patch that comes out next friday and advise you from there. I get 40fps averages, but there are still a lot of bugs and stuttering.

I tried to add you Grave but it couldnt find you :(

Im [TGUK]Rossi on steam. I think.

Done, I think!

Sorry for stealing both your kills earlier Egg. :(

I HATE YOU

In other news I am up for this. I would suggest we use the RPS steam chat for organising, the RPS Mumble server for communications and Hyperlobby for hosting/joining.
Hyperlobby can be a faff to set up and looks like something that got thrown up by a ZX Spectrum but it works (most of the time). You can find that download here (http://hyperfighter.sk/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=2).

P.S: I demand that we talk like the airmen from Armstrong and Miller. Isn't it.

Edit: Here's some more infos and things; might be useful for the OP, Jimmy?

Thanks Egg.

We are playing IL2 sometime today I think, make sure you are patched to 4.101m (or the latest patch) and mods are deactivated. Most likely will be doing some coop stuff. Jump in Steam RPS group chat and message me (GraveyardJimmy) or ask about if people are up for a game.

I want in too, although I'm atrocious at flying. I usually autopilot until I'm in the air.

Very tempted to install the old bird again and teach you all a thing or to!

But I'm just too scared to configure my Saitek X52 for all the controls....

We had a go at this yesterday, and I think we've yet to find the perfect balance in co-op missions to provide fun. Problem is, I just don't think we're good enough pilots to not die after 30 seconds of battle.
On the other hand, playing on a more laid back PVP server is much more fun.

Hopping on a server is fun, but I wouldnt mind trying out those 2 mintues to action to see if any are awesome. I will download them and go through them today perhaps.

Did anyone ever get the 1942 server to work, then?

I managed to port forward and host through hyperlobby.

*Bump*
Good news! Multiplayer is mostly playable/bearable now! (Assuming you know how to fly in maximum realism mode, as that's what all the servers are on)

Me and Jimmy had a fly in some Spitfires and showed some jerrys what-for:

Note the amazing graphical detail my two year old mid range rig pumps out. Or don't.

Fly? Yes. Take off? Er...

In CloD, it's complex engine management that's an absolute bastard.

Egg, I hate to say it, but 46 looks better than that.
