    Engine management is kinda BS on arcade mode. My Hurricane literally stopped flying because of water and oil overheat but there was nothing i could do to correct it. I even dived with the engine idled to try and cool it...

    If you stick to WEP that will happen. Oddly enough it seems high altitude taxes engines more than low altitude.
    Or is it just because you live longer up high than in the low altitude furball.

    But I must say arcade is sort of stupid.
    In most battles, you have the choice between:
    - going bomber hunting which is thankless as they are spread far apart and you usually don't get a full kill because some idiot places some shots in the wreck hurtling to the ground and you can only get a kill by diving after it and losing altitude.
    - throw yourself in the low altitude furball which is a lot of fun but doesn't contribute anything to winning or losing.
    - attack ground targets, which does not influence the overall result at all and makes you vulnerable to above furballers.

    But whom I don't get are these bomber guys who merrily plod around at altitude doing basically nothing but dropping loads on markers. If someone is smart enough to stay up they die, otherwise they win the war with as much excitement as checking your email.

    There should be a way to correct your temperatures, or if there is already, to do so more easily in arcade mode. I wasn't even maxing out WEP all that much. No more than usual. Agreed on the rest of your post.

    In other news, just had a game against some chap that managed to nab himself 27 air kills for 2 deaths. I was part responsible for both of those being the lead scorer on my own team. First time i forced him in to flak and he got shot down, second time was in Tuck's gladiator which i got an assist for. It became personal between us after that.

    He came for me two more times the last of which i was down to flying in my Blenheim. Managed to hold him off for a while but damn he was good. I could sort of hold my own for a while in turning fights against him but he seriously knew what he was doing. Checked his player card and turns out he was lvl 98. I think i am only 17

    Strange, I never managed to cook my engine in Arcade. So far I've ignored all warnings in that direction but I've tested how you could reduce oil and water temps and normally reducing throttle to 75% and just keep flying a little seems to be enough.

    My new and shiny toy.

    The best way to cool engine is to reduce throttle to idle. I never had heating problem in arcade, as far as i know, you can only web for so long before it stopped by i guess the instructor. the best way for me is to climb at 80% and when im in a dogfight, ill web when i need to.

    Today alone i have cooked my engine (both oil & water temps) 4 times, 3 of those resulting in me getting shot down or crashing. I think the water got to about 125 degrees and the oil at 93 before i began to lose power very quickly. Airspeed dies stupidly fast even on level flight and altitude drops off from you thereafter. Doesn't make sense when you supposedly have the more powerful engine either.

    Oh and good job on those blackcats Marsch, looking awesome.

    You're right. It'll probably be porn that does me in.

    Or...

    Climb and shoot up a bomber and then keep your altitude until you see someone begging for the lotion. Dive, apply lotion, but don't you dare turn, and then climb. Rinse and repeat. Or are you Euro's to sophisticated for the old American "zoom and boom!"

    Happens to me too all the time. I usually get it when I'm trying to climb really high, really fast to get to a bomber at high altitude. It seems to persist even after I've idled and shut down the engine. At this point I just return to base and repair or swap birds.

    If you really have such problems you should put "Hold throttle for WEP" to YES and use it in intervalls. That's how I've it and as mentioned I don't have this problem.

    On an other note. MP.net spreading terror and fear.
