It's here.

Since, as we were struggling with the full screen mode, we managed to finalize our Crossfire and SLI support we decided to bunch it together and release a combined beta patch. All the features of the previous patch are considered final, but new features are not.

Please find the patch readme below.

****************************************************************************************

The latest patch continues to improve on overall performance and multiplayer
functionality, as well as adding new gameplay options such as new Quick missions.

The current patch contains the following changes:

GRAPHICS
* Added beta Crossfire support.
* Added True full-screen mode. The game was previously playing in a stretched
window; that mode is also still available. Switch between windowed, pseudo
(stretched window) and true full screen modes in the Video Options.
NOTE: If you are running an ATI video card and you notice reduced performance in
True full-screen mode, please switch back to Pseudo to improve framerate;
* Greatly improved performance over large cities, especially with Buildings Detail
settings set below Very High. NOTE: if you do experience stutters over cities
with Building Detail set to Very High, please consider turning it down. Even
setting this to Medium will have almost no noticeable effect on visual quality
of the game;
* Introduced background landscape loading that slowly creates landscape under the
player's camera. You can now quickly switch from England to France with
virtually no slow-downs. Performance gain is most noticeable on CPUs with four+
cores.

AIRCRAFT VISUALS
* Reduced head motion effects, especially in terms of G;
* Increased draw distance for markings and decals on aircraft;
* Fixed minor Bf. 110 damage and animation issues;
* Fixed weird movement of Bf. 110's magnetic compass dial;
* Fixed Bf. 109 gunsight misalignment;
* Fixed a hole under a damaged engine cowling in the Defiant;
* Fixed visual issues with Defiant's tail damage;
* Put a mirror onto the Hurricane;
* Fixed Hurricane's tail damage visuals;
* Updated Hurricane radiator animation;
* Ju. 88 gear now open properly;
* Fixed minor Ju. 88 damage visuals;
* Asked the Ju. 88's pilot to keep his feet on the pedals;
* Made minor changes to cockpits of G. 50 and Ju. 88;
* Fixed a visual issue with the Spitfire's antenna;
* Fixed minor Sunderland damage visuals;
* Made minor modifications to Spitfire cockpit;
* Fixed minor damage visuals in the Ju. 88;
* Fixed minor damage visuals in the Hurricane;
* Fixed minor damage visuals in the Ju. 87;
* Made various modifications to SFX.

AIRCRAFT PHYSICS & A.I
* Carburetter backfire effects now require a certain amount of gasoline mix to be
contained in the intake to actually do some damage;
* Aircraft fires now burn crew members;
* Changed magnetic inclination to 10.11 degree west to reflect actual 1940 values;
* Removed ignition control handle from the Bf. 109;
* Defiant's gunner now opens both hatches when bailing out;
* He. 111 top gunner's machine gun won't dip into the fuselage any more;
* Made all fuel pressure gauges a single-tube type;
* Made turret mounts unlock faster;
* Removed the effect that made Bf. 109's motor shake at higher altitudes;
* Added aircraft buffeting to wing icing effects;
* Increased wing lift loss during wing icing;
* Fixed the issue where non-symmetrical damage to landing flap mechanics resulted in
symmetrical air flow over both wings.

GENERAL
* Added Force Feedback support to the game;
* Added six new Il-2-style Quick missions. See them at the bottom of the list -
three each for German and British attacks of Airfields, Bridges and Transport
Columns. Fly in bombers, escort and intercept and scramble fighters, with
missions of up to 128 aircraft!
* Made sure plane selection and other user modifications stick in Quick Mission
Builder when returning to the interface after flying a custom mission;
* Restored throttle-up smoke from non-player planes;
* Fixed some pilot animations;
* Updated some briefings and other in-game texts;
* Improved the overall look of the 2D Map;
* Added a Scale control to the 2D Map (imperial for British, metric for Germans
and Italians);
* Added city and airfield labels to the 2D Map;
* Added larger 64x64 icons to the 2D Map;
* Improved the order in which icons are drawn on the 2D Map when on top of each
other;
* Improved the look of the Battle Area grid;
* Fixed icon size selection options;
* Fixed issues encountered when destroying certain types of railway cars;
* Improved ground crewmembers in online games;
* Made sure Bobbin Cable can be selected in the FMB without issues;
* Fixed an issue encountered when trying to place crew into an object without a
regiment;
* Fixed an issue with launching night missions with search lights on dedicated
servers;
* Fixed an issue with launching missions with certain ships on dedicated servers;
* Fixed an issue with launching missions with armor when sound is disabled.
* Fixed an issue with planes are once again exploding when starting in
hangars.

MULTIPLAYER
* Improved server and client stablity and performance;
* Improved statistics;
* Fixed phantom crewmembers occasionally appearing in place of dropped planes;
* Made sure airborne planes are created with sufficient airspeed in online games
(born speed now tied to the plane's top speed);
* Made sure all players see the same time of day in an online server.

CHANNEL MAP
* Made Dungeness Point look more like the real-life location;
* Added the town of Horsham to the map;
* Added Westhampnett airfield to the map.

If only they had worked that hard before releasing the game we would have gotten a finished product in half a year time frame instead of 6 years.
Anyway I am happy to see they are working on it. Maybe I will buy it in a month time. Keep up the good work. Better late than never.

Thanks 2005AD. Ah, those devious devs, luring us into a false sense of security with their on-going rapid support and improvements. All the signs of a long con, for sure. It's the ultimate complex double-bluff - the only explanation that makes sense if you really really think about it hard.

Version: 1.00.14413 - patch is 67MB

Seems to work, although getting massive stutters first time as it re-caches everything. Will see I guess.

Remember, it's a beta patch. Consider backing up your steamapps/IL2 COD directory first before applying?

The radio commands must be something more than a minor fix. Performance is fairly good with Eyefinity 6048x1080 using 2x HD6970s in Crossfire, most details on max.

Still a very long way to go IMHO but at least they are working on it and each step is (usually) a step in the right direction.

Schweppes, open with Winrar or a similar program, then extract files to Steam>SteamApps>Common>IL2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover. If it asks you if you want to overwrite, choose 'yes to all'.

Done. Smile2

Oops. I did download from the link up in 2005's post, and copied over as per usual. I must have messed up, sans coffee today plus feeling abit flemish.

Do you see 1.00.14413 on the main menu then?

Edit: Yes, confirmed - I'm an idiot. Updated properly now. FPS seem better, although I've waited here 10 minutes now and still no sign of a cup of tea. Disappointed.

I can't believe that this bug isn't prioritized above other smaller fixes like plane visuals and not fixed yet.

Also "fixed porked aircraft performance" not on list. That and the radio commands are the two biggest issues for me

Beware ye pilots of the virtual skies: somehow the patch inverted the trim controls, at least on the Spitfire IIa...

correction, no it didn't, I just had one too many beercheers

Ciao,
nibbio

p.s. performance seems slightly improved, they added a loadout screen at the beginning of single missions, tried a tracer loadout for the Spit, still there are no tracers to be seen, except at the end of the ammo belts.... wtf? Back to the virtual shelf until the next patch...

One could be forgiven for thinking that it's not a bug and that all we have is the UI for a radio command system that is still in development.

Post this patch I'm noticing changes in Spit and 109 CEM - not sure if unporked, but perhaps porked differently. Man, I'm hungry.

I've got the tower to pipe up once or twice, and those radar people never shut up.

It is bad that it doesn't work, even at least for basic wingman commands.
