View Full Version : Prop pitch animation

Aug-02-2014, 13:13
I was watching this very helpful video for help on taking off with the hurricane: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7DCNfa4ju0
At about 2:50 he sets prop-pitch, and you can visually see the propellors changing angle. However, when I toggle the prop-pitch, nothing happens.

As far as I'm aware I'm using the exact same airplane as him, and have all the graphics on full/high
Anything I could be doing wrong?

The pitch slider does slide up and down when I press the button.

Thanks in advance! (again!)

This video - posted in 06/08/2011 - was done with CloD "release" version.

The posterior patchs cut various features, in favor of trying to make the CloD run on " 2006 computers w/Win XP" - as announced (http://il2sturmovik.ubi.com/cliffs-of-dover/en-GB/game-info/pc-configuration/index.aspx) ...

Prop pitch animations is one of these.

So, consider all YT CloD videos done before December, 2013 only as curiosity as was the "Alpha" version...

Intriguing choice to just completely remove it, but at least it's solved! Thanks a lot!
Aaaaaaaand...I'm consistently managing to take off in the hurricane! Yay! Getting there!

In the Spitfire, if you watch the propeller blades before start up when adjusting the pitch You WILL see the blades change position. Or, at least I see it in my game patched up to work on ATAG. I hardly ever fly the hurricane so I have never had much of a chance to look.

Like most things Spitfire, its some Very sexy stuff. :D
