    Its pretty good, but it seems like the different packs you can buy are not cheap atm.

    Well I've been looking into controllers with this game and a lot of older ones in mind.

    Perhaps a slight derailment from the game to start with.

    I have 3 options.

    saitek X52 pro (I've I've previously owned a X52 and was happy with the overall performance but perhaps this stick is dated now).

    Logitech g940. I've owned previous force feedback sticks, and like the idea of dual throttles and rudder pedals.

    Saitek x65f. Not sure about the lack of stick movement, I've been seeing mixed reviews. Some love it others have sent it back. I'm thinking the G940 is actually the better all rounder.

    The Thrustmaster warthog is not a contender for me, It doesn't come with a rudder and it adds a fair bit to the price, pushing it out of the reach of my budget.


    So back on topic, Will this game support dual throttles, and more importantly am i going to miss out by having the G940 with the fewer control dials and toggles. If you were in my situation what would you be looking at. I know most of the figher craft in this game are going to be single engine, But i'm hoping that the bombers at least will support dual throttle the can be linked to either side of the craft.


    If you were in my situation what would you be looking at. My budget for the controller is £250 (UK).

    I tried Microsoft Flight, and it was pretty solid. That was until I realized I would have to spend over $1000 to equal the content of flight simulator X.

    Never said I needed a 64 bit version and I am on win 7 x64..
    Be careful on spending money. The game is still hollow.
    At least they are trying to keep us in the loop on updates a bit more it seems. but we stay in the dark most of the time.
    Just doing the same grind, over and over..

    Idk how people can release such hollow games.. Go out, shoot people, game over, rinse repeat..

    I haven't played in weeks and until something big happens, I won't play again.

    I made a topic about this game and it was not good..
    Just be ready to grind, as if you were playing a Japanese MMO..
    That's what the game boils down to right now.
    Max level in like every country, so I know all about the game..

    It's a "try to make you spend hundreds of dollars on a F2P" kind of game..
    If you have ever played a Russian MMO, you won't be surprised.
    Very bland for the most part and repetitive, little content.
    But lots of ways to make you pay for it..

    I had a hankering for some prop plane combat so I gave this game a shot the last couple of nights. All in all, I have found it pretty enjoyable. I just moved up to some of the larger arcade style maps and have been impressed with the detail. At times the action was super intense, bordering on frenetic, with quite a few (for lack of a better term) "Battlefield Moments."

    OK, after 41k battles I finally quit WoT for WT.
    I found again my fun and no rage in any battle. I'm a rookie of course. :D

    Anyway if someone would like to try the game it can use this link and he'll receive 50 gold for free.
    It's my referral link but I don't get anything until the guy reach high tiers. :)

    Try it and have fun.

    Meet you in the skies. :toast:

    I'll start playing this soon. Have to find the time so I can get into it properly but I'm looking forward to it. My new GTX 660 will happily eat this game for breakfast. :D

    The new patch today is great, tho SSAO really effects performance.
    They also buffed the Germans cannons some and fixed some of the UFO's for the Americans that could out turn anything with landing flaps at 600Kph without ripping there wings off.

    I have it unlocked for a while but no credits for it. Damn this broken economy. :banghead:
    But the good news is that in a week or two the patch for economy will arrive so maybe it will be better.

    And yes, visuals in this game are absolutely gorgeous. :twitch:
    After this patch my FPS's went down a little but nothing to be worried. The game deserves to be played at absolutely max. settings.

    I feel like all 20mm cannons got a huge buff.

    Patch faster by selecting Russian language
    New maps and a bunch of new graphical features are the reason for the 3 gb patch
    Cannons are fantastic now, finally got my boom stick

    New map with fogged in fjord is awesome

    its not only Russian, Germans can mount 3 30mm on the high tier f-109's
    and the 37mm that the cobra's have for USA is lethal.
    Pretty much cannons are working as intended, back in that time period there where few planes armored well enough to take more then 1 or 2 cannon rounds without being completely wrecked.

    Also what planes are you flying that your getting one shot'd in some planes in the game are complete ass and have huge cockpits which make pilot shots super easy like the JU-88

    I was rocking constant 60 fps before on my 560 Ti. Now it often varies between 45 and 60 :mad:
