I have tried to replicate the 'collective bug' in this and the last beta, and so far, I have also failed to 'lose' the collective control.
One thing I have noticed is that while flying in cockpit view, the cockpit disappears for a second (actually less than that). It's not the whole screen, just the cockpit. When it disappears, you can see the scenery almost as if it is a 'no cockpit' view. There's no partcular mission it does it in, it can be an editor session, a scenario, time trial etc. It does do it consistantly though. I'll try and you-tube it later when the kids are in bed.
I have the same problem with the disappearing cockpit. It was present in the previous beta as well. You may also notice the scenery disappear from time to time.
Did you fly on an A2 or an A2 Addon map? I had the cockpit-disappear-issue with those maps since the game is released.
Not for me. Vanilla ToH with latest patch and latest beta.
I've had cockpit disappear for second or less in vanilla TKOH and vanilla A2:OA for year(s). Luckily it doesn't happen too frequently.
Since the cockpit flickering is again one of those issues we don't see happen a lot in-house, let's try to find a pattern in hardware and software. Please can those who see this happen post information about HW, SW and settings in TKOH (in the CIT ticket or here)? If we can link it to a specific settings (e.g. PiP), it will be more feasible to track down.
