  1. Many thanks BeePee. Problem solved thanks to your assistance. Just posted an image of a stunt which I hope you will like.....

    Autorotations...

    I must say that auto-rotation with no forward airspeed is impossible in my game-play. I fall like a rock or something. And I am aware of that because I had to try many auto-rotations till I finally succeeded in the tutorial. And even in the career missions, well I can't say what happens, but it was really challenging and difficult and what you call a "dead man's curve" was really critical. Especially under those circumstances. One experience that I had was in multiplayer, a convoy mission, so that I can tell you about the details, an armored car damaged my engines and auto-rotation was needed even under extreme and continues gunfire. I managed to land but it was so rough that the blades were destroyed and the helicopter became even more useless. I got out, fortunately I had equipped myself with some weapons, and started fighting on foot. After a while of changing of gunfire with the enemy AI and fortunately after I had walked away from the chopper, the chopper just exploded making it's weapons totally useless. So the auto-rotation procedure is really critical and important if you want to survive and I really don't now how you manage it with no forward air speed.
  3. Well guys I hope you are right but to tell you the truth I have no SSD drive on the computer that I am playing this game, I have also got one with SSD, and things are going extremely well even in the highest details and graphics. I have never had a problem even in many other games with much more strict requirements. Looking forward for the results of your upgrade.
  4. Generally there will be a lot of better performance on your computer but it is not so necessary for take on helicopters. It would be better to buy a better graphic's Card. It would really help since there are a lot of graphics in TOH. Or maybe some more RAM to gain the intended faster performance.

    I would suspect that you haven't played some certain missions in the career mode. I will not say anything else since they would work as spoilers. But don't you worry you will be thrilled....
  6. That is a negative. No problems occurred at all when I installed and played take on helicopters without the patches. But your problem has also got an advantage because if you didn't patch your game and started the career mode then guess what would happen...... Every single save that you may have previously had in the game folder in the career mode would be useless since there is an error message, when you try continuing your career, saying that the new version of the game doesn't support this saved content. That is what happened to me and it wasn't pleasant. I had to uninstall the game by keeping the save content and install it again. Then after finishing the career I started again, after a couple of weeks, by first patching and then starting the career. Not the best experience although some extra flying skills I gained......

    Underwater Improvements

    If you consider landing on rivers logical then OK.... This bug should most certainly be fixed. It is unacceptable for a simulator of such a scale. But maybe too much underwater detail would be too much, I will agree to that one.
  8. Sorry for interfering without previous involvement in this thread but is there any chance of any multiplayer fire fighting missions? It would enhance the single player fire fighting missions since I would possibly find them a bit boring at certain times and also more complex firefighting techniques could be put into practice. And it would also lead to more players going online. The truth be told there is an "online-player-shortage" here......

    Landing Expert Mode

    One solution would be to minimize the difficulty settings and then by starting from the bottom up you will quite easily learn how to land smoothly. But now who is taking? I almost always prefer the straight up approach which requires no hovering since you gradually descend to the ground. And there is no problem there since most of the times real pilots prefer this kind of approach and even in videos you watch them do so. Another solution would be to change the sensitivity of your controls so as for the helicopter to be more controllable. I have personally changed these settings in my take on helicopter's carrier. Maybe I will post a link, for a video, someday of a landing in expert mode. P.S. I don't believe that you will have problems understanding this post since your English is pretty good and flawless.
  10. Do not get too excited with my reply since I do not have take on helicopters hinds. This is because I have to pay and download it online since there is no CD available but that is not our issue. As I have been generally informed there is no other company which can simulate helicopter flight so spectacularly. I mean even with take on helicopters rearmed which I have purchased the simulated flight experience is astonishing. The controls, the controlling, the wind and weather effects, the sounds, the gun effects, the explosions, the AI everything is very well depicted. Flight simulator X for example can not possibly stand in the way since it is not meant to be a helicopter simulator. I have personally tried both and my decision didn't need much time to arise. I believe that you could try take on helicopters rearmed and if you are excited with it then you can additionally buy the Hinds version. Hope I helped in a way. I hope more replies by Hinds players come. Good Luck with your choices!
  11. Just to add, on some controllers using the dead zones is very helpful if for example increasing the throttle fully takes a lot of valuable time. I would also send a picture of my controller settings but I do not know how to insert an image. What is this URL? I even posted a thread yesterday but not one has replied. Sorry if I am going off topic on this one but BeePee I would really appreciate your help even in the other thread(in take on helicopters questions and answers) on this one. P.S Nice helo.
  12. Well to start with I must say that I had also got these issues on my joystick when I first started playing this game. I use Logitech Attack 3 which is not expensive and gets the job done pretty good. You mentioned in your thread that you tried adjusting the different axis options on your controller. Sorry if my question is kind of out of bounds but there is an ability to adjust, by increasing or decreasing three horizontal columns next to the ones altering the sensitivity of your controller, the dead zone of your controller directly. Have you tried it? Because you don't mention it. Another issue is the way that your controllers change the throttle. As far as I am concerned having the throttle separate, like in a plane, can make your flight extremely hard. But that is just a personal opinion. Never mind that, if you can control the throttle separately I congratulate you. Hope this helped. If not, I would be more than willing to assist.

    Underwater Improvements

    Yep. An improvement like this would really enhance take on helicopters since the sea and river graphics are a drawback in the game. And that if you consider that in many places you can literally walk or land on rivers like nothing is happening. It is really annoying especially when enemies can also cross these rivers.

    A few more helicopters!!

    Personally I can do nothing more than agree with you and add some more suggestions to this thread. I would really like to fly, for example, a Chinook which is a known helicopter with many capabilities. It would be a unique flight experience that could be accompanied by some military type missions such as troop transportation which would provide a perfect multiplayer environment for those who add arma 3 or take on helicopters rearmed to their game-play. And one more ,Agusta, hello would be nice. The AW139 which could serve for different kinds of missions, military and commercial.
  15. Things are all clear now! Thanks bro.
  16. Halo to all. I have recently "played" operation, samrakent sth topgun. I started this special mission being on foot with a helicopter besides me and a fellow, I believe, soldier walking around me. After a minute or so he started walking away from me. During this time of me watching this AI no instructions were given to me as for this man but there was a checkpoint of some kind which wrote investigate and destroy, or something like that. Well I got on board my hello and flew there. There I saw a wounded soldier and another one standing. I got closer and although those guys were wearing the same uniform as me they started shooting at the chopper. Strange. So I shot them with some missiles and they were killed. Very nice. But then nothing happened although I got out of my chopper and I shut it down!?!?!? Then I flew towards the guy that I saw before, and guess what he was doing. Yep he just kept on walking and walking like a lost tourist of some kind.......?????....... But that's not all. What is the point of other AI helicopters flying, shooting each other and me apparently? I did not get it. Who are these guys? Also, and sorry for tiring you, why is there a non flyable air zone, which if you breach, the hello is destroyed? What on earth is that thing? What am I supposed to do? Thank you for your time. Every bit of help will be appreciated.
  17. Just one short question. Is there a site in which someone can download the missions made by the programming experts, take on helicopters players? I know that you can download some from the forum but isn't there a more specific place to search in? It would be far more easier than opening all the threads with a relative title. Is there another way here? Thanks in advance.
  18. Well, to start with all these upgrades help you by unlocking private contracts in the career mode which are profitable missions for gaining money and experience. If I recall correctly the private contract in which you pursue some speed boats requires the FLIR and the camera. Furthermore, the FLIR helps you in multiplayer missions such as Seattle evac in which the copilot locates the survivors by using the FLIR. Without it, it is extremely difficult to accomplish this mission. (it is already equipped in multiplayer missions) Last but not least, you mentioned that your mirrors work? Mine never work.... Sorry for not being very helpful but can you tell me how exactly you made the mirrors work? Should I change the so called mo too? Thanks no matter what.....
  19. To tell you the truth I am facing the same problem of money shortage. I however haven't sold the heavy helicopter but I am gathering money by replaying the private contracts. It is a bit boring and the profits ain't much but there doesn't seem to be another way of gaining money. And I have indeed tried to alter the saved profile but it is, unfortunately, coded script unlike some other games and simulators. But there is another problem. I am not aware if the helipad base can have more than three choppers. The heavy construction, which you cannot sell, the light and a medium. Sorry that I can't help more.......
  20. Hallo to everyone. I have tried playing the myltiplayer mission desert hawks multiple times but i face the same problem again and again. After i deliver the crate back to the base and the game assigns a new task of escorting a heavy military helicopter, even though i try to keep up with the other chopper it is impossible since my top speed in my medium helicopter doesn't exceed 235 km/h and the heavy helicopter reaches a speed of i believe 280 km/h. The distance between me and the heavy helicopter reaches 5 km!!!!! And after a while the game politely informs me that i have failed my objective. I believe that there is a bug here but in case that everything is normal, what is it that i do so wrong? Thanks in advance.....
  21. I have recently visited a multiplayer server and tried to play operation cutthroat. My problem there was that when i took a helicopter as a pilot i could not shoot whether i was piloting the light or the medium helicopters. What i would like to know is if there is anything wrong with the scenario or if it is normally not possible for the pilot to shoot and if not, then who can shoot? Only the copilot? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance......
