Am I missing something here?
I picked up both series on the recent sale and even bought an x-box controller for the PC. I have had no issues with the Secret Wars with the x-box pad; can fly the plane no problem. However, the Pacific Carriers is a total bust. I am having a lot of issues with the controller flying the plane after several minutes into the scenario I eventually crash. Am I missing something here?
I was looking forward more to the Pacific Wars but it's just total frustration getting through the scenario or even the training mode. Very disappointing! Anyone in the same circumstances or did I miss something in the set up? I have a good rig and using Win 7 64.
Is the x-box controller the right pad for the game? I thought the games would be very similar!?!

Can you be more specific with respect to the issues you are having with XBOX controller? The core of the control implementation remains the same... Do you have perhaps simulation mode active? Or do you play arcade?

There is a learning curve. The aircraft fly with decent real life characteristics, the elevator, rudder and ailerons work as they would on an actual aircraft. For best handling, a game controller is not the way to go. I use a Logitech extreme 3-D pro. If you try to use a game controller and arcade mode in multiplayer, you are going to get your lunch eaten. You will probably get better with time WITH PRACTICE.

The game controller was the most accessible not many stores carry PC accessories I was looking for the Logitech. I play in simulation mode and can handle the aircraft in Secret Wars. I am really having an issue with in Pacific Carriers; everytime I use the rudders to steer the plane jukes and then does a descend quickly losing altitude and no control to prevent a crash.
I am really surprised and frustrated with the operation of the plane control for Carriers. I just thought they would be similar. I will keep working at it.

So you are playing at simulation mode, correct? The simulation mode has been entirely reworked compared to ACSW. Different planes should offer different handling, so it may be the case. Have you tried in Arcade mode - does it raise similar problems?

do you have to complete levels in single player to unlock more in multiplayer as ive known in some past games ? as ther doesnt seem to be many servers in multiplayer

Exact same thing happens to me. Also I love the idea of this game, but it needs a lot of work. The crashes are delayed an are unrealistic. There are multiple glitches, but this game has potential.

crazy_craig - what do you mean by "do you have to complete levels in single player to unlock more in multiplayer as ive known in some past games ?" Can you clarify please?

on flaspoint you could only do co/op missions if unlocked in single player

I use a xbox 360 controller for secret wars and pacific carriers and they work perfect. And even already preset.. Are u using just an xbox controller? Or a 360 controller? 360 works perfect

Actually I do have the xbox 360; I am getting the hang of it I was just surprised at the difference between the 2 games.

I have an issue with taking off from the carriers. Fighters take off fine but the bombers never have enough speed to get off the deck. I push the engine to 120 and dont pull back till i almost leave the deck. The torpedo bomber crashes over and over. Cant get through training. Any help?

same here ... heavy problems getting dive and torpedobombers in the air ... the first two in line at the trainigmission i can stabilize 1 or 2 meters over sealevel but the third and fourth always crash on water

Sorry for later reply.

Actually, we extended the configuration application so that you should be able to adjust the physics according to your liking. Please, if you will place here the settings you like the most, we would be happy to include the settings in the basic settings in the application.

The guys here were able to take off in simulation mode even with these airplanes, but no idea how :))). I agree the settings may be a bit too harsh, so we can improve that if you let us know how you would like to adjust the simulation settings...
