That's where I went wrong. I gave up too soon.
But I stuck with IL2 from the beginning, FB, AEP, BOE, Pacific Fighters, I bought them all, then went to the 4.04m version, then they stuck the .50 cal. guns with 'dispersion'. And I gave up, never loaded a higher version, left the forums, I heard the 4.07 version was worse for the Mustang.
You're right, I should have hung on a little longer.
But the machine I was running was hanging on by it's fingernails, 40-50 fps.
Lian-Li PC65b blk Alumn Case

NVIDIA XFX 7900GS DDR3 AGP 4X/8X
Santa Cruz - Turtle Beach sound card
40 GB Ultra ATA/100 Hard Drive (7200 RPM)
So I gave up.
Glad to hear the 4.10.1m version corrected it.
When I get my new build done, that's the first thing I'll do, count on it.
I should be booting up by Monday. My old keyboard isn't USB....lol...it's got the 'round' green plug.
Had to order a new keyboard to get into the BIOS.

Now my only problem will be getting online with a DSL.
But campaigns are all I've been playing for 10 years, one mission EVERY day.
Really, 'every day'.
And I understand most people aren't that interested in the P-51, but I was....it was always MY plane.
Everyone has one, it's just that 'mine' was neutered, and I never flew the 'real' one...but I bought all the games, looking for it.
But again, you're right...the $100-$200 'add-ons' will certainly get old fast....
Sorry, I didn't know the Mustang was done right, in the later version.....glad to hear it.
Figures, I left the movie before the good guys won......'Murphy's Law'....
Another problem with a new system....anyone know how to get Win7 64bit, to operate a joystick with Force Feedback?
I understand it's hard to find drivers with a 64bit OS....and my MSSWFF2 won't cut it anymore.
I liked the Warthog HOTAS, but heard it's not force feedback.
Murphy's on my back again????
