    Hurricane mk IIx Supercharger

    Been playing the game for several months but I just finally noticed there is no mixture control on the mk II Hurricanes, but they do have a supercharger. I mapped the Supercharger to my throttle quad, but not sure when or how to use it. It seems to only have two positions. I am assuming I change the position at a certain altitude, but no idea when.

    Can anyone educate me on this regard?

    Thank you.

    Change when your boost gets low, around 15,000' is certainly safe. The wartime manuals you can find online have recommended engine settings and they work really well for settings in the game.

    Hi gents,

    Actually, the two-stage supercharger is one of my assignments given me months ago to update the Getting Started and Trouble Shooting Guide. Looks like I better get on it!

    Thanks for the input, Dawson.

    Maybe we should update the Hurricane II Flashcards with a sentence about this.

    That makes good sense, DerDa.

    Likewise there's no supercharger info in the Martlet flashcard either. Maybe others are missing too ?
    Can't think off the top of my brain which a/c have 2-stage/compressor bindings.

    Thanks for the info.
    I know about the Beaufighter and the Wimpy. Not sure about others.
    I will drum up the rest of the manual creation group, to see if we can official information from TFS and how we can implement this.


    S!

    A note to open air filters on tropical aircraft after take-off might also be in order.

    While we're discussing manuals may I ask if the short manuals will be included in the future? Whenever I fly a plane I'm unfamiliar with I check the short manuals. Them print nice in booklet form. I find them more convenient in those cases when I don't need to see the cockpit.

    Re: Hurricane mk IIx Supercharger

    On both, short manuals and flashcards, there is very little space, so we had to carefully decide what to include and what not.
    Please don't forget the fact that other languages need quite more space than English to say the same thing and the flashcards are available in seven or eight different languages.


    The original intention of flashcards and short manuals was to get a new pilot up into the air and back down.
    In the case of bombers we included some other basic things to make them useable, but this required additional pages.

    Any additional sentence may just blow up the layout.


    About the short manuals: they were ready and translated even before the flashcards. I tried repeatedly to have them included into the game, or posted somewhere here, using exactly your argument of easy printability.
    It never happened ("the flashcards are enough", "we would have to re-check and update them all", or just other things were uploaded instead).
    I would still love to see them available, but I think the pressure has to come from the community.

    Couldn't any manuals just be stickied in the Downloads thread until such time as they can be included in the official game ?
    I must say that supercharger info came as news to me as well.
