    online probs

    Guys, just trying to get online for a game of IL-2 or LOMAC (tho I suck at LOMAC), got hyperlobby 3.5 pro and the ventrilo software, is there anything else i need??

    Just trying to get my head round everything - not really been able to get into online gaming until now.

    Cheers.

    ventrilo willbe nouse unless you are in a group/squad/clan that has a server for you and your pals to use

    but Hyperlobby is right.....look for a game, click on it once....see what the settings are......(externals disabled , real engine management etc) see howmany people are on it....and launch it if ya fancy a go...

    BUT..if its a first outing in LOMAC or IL2....youmight wanna spend some time in a single player environment to get intoit...IL2 particularly

    Most of the online community that used to play IL-2 have moved on to Forgotten Battles. When you get into Hyperlobby you'll see what I mean. There will be nearly 1000 playing FB some nights and less than 20 playing IL-2. So, get you aunty, uncle, girlfriend, boss, pet to buy you FB as an early Christmas pressie as soon as possible and come and join the fun

    The additional single play and multiplay stuff will make it worth it. Plus the extra planes, maps, and the greater realism (complex engine management - trickier handling).

    If ya like IL2, you will love Forgotten Battles - the transition is smooth and if you're going to make the step I would suggest you do so quickly. There would be a few of us here that would be more than glad to welcome you in an online game.

    Flog IL2 on Ebay for a fiver and pick yourself up a copy of FB for a tenner.

    5 quid difference and worth every penny.
