    Yeah thats with my x52. Problem is you can't free look so its hard to track targets.

    Hmm am I the only one having issues with this game? I get atikmdag.sys error when I get into a campaign.

    EDIT: Only happens in DX10 mode

    I haven't had any problems with it. Played it a few times for 30+ mins each... I'm all good with D10

    Ran fin here. Maybe try updating your DirectX.

    Game is only using about 30-60% of each GPU which doesnt appear to change if I rename the .exe or not.

    I like it so far but I still don't know if I'll buy it. I like the follow cam and the lead cam but I'm not really liking the assistance off cam. I dont even use the assistance so that's not why I dont like it, I find it awkward and annoying that it always defaults to a ground target that i have no interest in shooting at so I have to change modes, find a target, and change modes again.

    When I'm performing advanced maneuvers I want to be in the plane preparing to attack or dodge another missile, I dont want to watch the action take place from a distance while my plane dips and dives to the the point that I don't even know which plane is mine. I really dont like the idea that you can also see almost the entire combat area while in assistance off mode. Assistance off makes it sound harder but after getting used to it... it's SOFA KING easy.

    Without ERS, assistance on is much more legit. Assistance off is a deceiving description.

    How hard is it to track a target in an open sky VS tracking from the follow cam or cockpit of a jet?

    # Insufficient Power
    # Bad Memory Modules
    # Over Clocking
    # Overheating

    Mine would be a combination of I'm guessing Memory and overheating, I'm using generic ram at 906 mhz with only a 2 dollar heatspreader fitted so that is probably whats causing it, but yeah Its scorching atm and its cloudy.. F**ked up weather down here, CPU and GPU temps are more than fine, PSU is just right. It stopped after I let my computer rest for a few minutes :) cheers guys.

    I get wierd stutter in Dx10 mode. I usualy get every thing 60 fps with 8x AA and AF but it feels like its lagging even though I get 40-50 fps its really wierd plus it crashes sometimes.

    Runs perfectly on DX10 mode, put did have to set it to 1920x1200 (get a average of 44FPS max being 110)

    All i can say im not a fan i hate the 3rd wizz about mode, a lack of a decent hud for me is very annoying. also not being and to use any of my POV's switches to continue the views is annoying.

    But overal good. i just think i will stick to IL2 & Lock On.

    I like the 3rd person view with assistance off because it looks really cool but then again is a pain in the ass switching back and forth.

    The demo is fun. I'm definitively getting the game :D

    I hope I can find my old joystick, and hope it works with it too :D

    Also, is there going to be a multimplayer? would be fun

    did you get rid off stuttering after renaming?? in DX10

    me too :(:( i wonder if someone with single ATI card have the same stuttering or not since its optimized for ATI ..... bad luck if there is no work around something like locking the frame rate to lower value just like in FARCRY2....:shadedshu:(.
