PostSubject: IBU2 recoil set-up   Sun Jul 03, 2016 12:37 pm

As some of you might know, I have been installing IBU2 boards on some of my tanks. I am still a mostly Clark guy, but IBU2 and the newer generation board intrigues me quite a bit, and I managed too snatched two used ones (one IBU2 Base and one IBU2 Pro) off the web and bought one new one from the UK distributor (IBU2 Base).

Given that my SU-152 Clark board blew and on its way to Taiwan for repair, I decided to put the IBU2 Pro board into it and configure it as such. One of the first thing I noticed is that IBU2 will allow you to fine tune the recoil setting with 4 different parameters, and so far none of the three boards that I got has a satisfactory set-up so I spent some time on tweaking it on the SU-152 and here is the result. Basically you are allow to set the speed of the recoiling, the speed of the barrel return, the speed and the time of the hull recoil that is sync to the cannon recoil. This is probably one of the more realistic set-up I have managed to configure.

the return looks a bit slow still can you up the speed on that and can you reduce the amount the tank goes back

Definitely can make the return faster. The hull recoil you can set speed and time to create how much it moves back, so I need to figure out if it is the time or the actually speed that I need to reduce to cut down on how much it moves back.

That actually looks really cool. On a tank destroyer that rolling back hull looks appropriate, it's nice and gradual & not snappy at all. The delay in the gun-return is all that looks slightly out of time, otherwise I like how you can play with that.

Attempt #2..... I dunno....... Kinda like the first one better. Maybe I adjusted too much.

This is my final set-up. I still like the return slower, and also a little more body shake. So the recoil speeds is same as the first one, but the tank has less to travel than the first one but with the same intensity.
