1. As usual, please be sure to delete your cache folder (in your 'Documents/1C SoftClub/il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover' folder) before running the game again.
2. Unfortunately Avast and AVG Antivirus (and only those, belonging to the same company) have repeatedly and falsely considered Cliffs of Dover's Launcher64.exe as a possible virus. There's nothing we currently can do about this. If you are using one of the two and are having trouble starting Cliffs, please set the Launcher64.exe on their whitelist. Sorry for the inconveniences.
3. Make sure to rebind your Prop. pitch Automation key to the new 'Toggle Propeller Pitch Mode' in Control settings if your auto pitch is not working in aircraft with auto pitch... as in Bf109E-4 and Bf-110C models.
