    PC Pilot magazine have just released their DWT review!

    Hi All,

    PC Pilot magazine have just published their review of IL-2 Sturmovik Desert Wings Tobruk!

    https://www.key.aero/article/team-fu...AmNWYYH_PEssU4

    We are delighted to have received an very high score of 85!

    Derek Davis from PC Pilot stated that Desert Wings Tobruk is 'highly recommended'.

    To get such a high score, from the most well known and respected flight simulation magazine in the world, is massive for our team, and our community.

    The review will be included in PC Pilot's upcoming issue, which will be out this Thursday. Check it out!

    That is excellent to hear!
    Guess where I first found out about Cliffs of Dover before eventually getting a copy?

    I think they missed out the Bf108 as a new flyable plane. Maybe more??

    Their title "Never was so much owed by so many to so few." could not have better described the work of TFS team

    Re: PC Pilot magazine have just released their DWT review!

    Failed Basic: needs better tutorials, sometimes loses control set ups, screen shot function doesn’t work on my system
    The guy will not point in the review this old bug (since 2011, like the "dread gray box") if someone has changed this, in installer ConfUser.ini:

    [HotKey BOB]
    Alt F4=exit
    P=pause
    PrintScreen=ScreenShot
    To

    [HotKey BOB]
    Alt F4=exit
    P=pause
    F11=ScreenShot
    F11 is a free key, and work flawless for screenshot. And NO, the "new/casual", neither reviewer should not do this themselves, but the game publisher, to solve the issue for good.

    And again, that "blessed" Training:

    The third tutorial needs a lot of work. It’s supposed to take you from engine start all the way to flying and landing but I found it to be incomplete and very confusing. The tutorial teaches you nothing about taxing or how to work your brakes so I found myself constantly hitting ground objects while trying to learn the controls. This tutorial needs to be redesigned. I would also add a tutorial for basic combat gunnery, bombing and formation flying.(1)
    "I would also add a tutorial for basic combat gunnery, bombing and formation flying." - Well, Briefings and pictures for this part are in the Training folder... "to do", an "It's CloD!"
