  1. This has been happening to me for awhile now. I renamed options.lua, and started up fine. But, after clicking the High, turning on vsync and fullscreen, the next boot started minimized. Log attached. I think I might need to clear sharders. dcs.log
  2. Resource Monitor (Performance Monitor) is overkill for this task. Select Task Manager, click Performance tab, and click on your GPU.
  3. How much VRAM do you have on your GPU? Syria Map is very VRAM hungry. The map can consume 10GB of VRAM easily. When you run out of VRAM things get copied from Dedicated to Shared VRAM. This can cause stuttering. You can watch the consumption of VRAM in the Task Manager. Try setting Terrain Textures to LOW, and View Distance to LOW or MED.
  4. Well, my opencomposite install went TU last week, and a repair got me working with SteamVR again. That file is no longer in the bin folder, so improvements have been made. SteamVR works great now, BTW, with pixel density 1.0.
  5. You can just do Repair DCS from the Windows menu to get it back.
  6. You are correct. I've spent maybe 1 hour in BMS. Guess I wasn't looking hard enough. There are some good youtube videos of the BLU-107 delivery from BMS.
  7. We had these in Falcon4 before BMS removed them. I recall you had to pop up to 1000agl or they wouldn't arm in time which made for some puckering moments.
  8. I am getting some strange graphical glitches flickering on the two hangars at the end of Al Minhad. Edit: This is caused by SSAO. Turning off SSAO removes the issue.
  9. I got VR working with Opencomposite. I made the mistake of leaving DCS in VR mode, and then one day it just would not start. I had to do a repair to get it to launch. I'm hesitant to try it again. 2D is still fabulous. The quality of 2D in DCS is a real achievement IMHO. Easily the best performance on the market now. If they day comes when VR is better than 2D I'll jump back in. Edit: So I had to try again, and I just flew a mission over PG with vanilla settings, no OXRTK, PD 1.0, and it was flawless. Still, 2D is something to be celebrated.
  10. Try Low Latency Mode = Ultra, turn off all vsync and frame limiters, set your resolution to 1080p, and for VR leave vr pre-rendered frames at 1 and turn off motion reprojection. This only works if the CPU is working harder than the GPU, but you want the CPU to be working harder because it is the ultimate controller of the pipeline. If your GPU frame times exceed your CPU frame times, it means the GPU can't keep up to the CPU. If your GPU frame times are higher, then this doesn't work. My 3080Ti and i7 11gen loves it. Handy Nvidia latency video to watch.
  11. If you are using OpenComposite, you will need to delete D3DCompiler_47.dll again.
  12. Mission building is a big part of DCS. Get to know the mission editor. I like to fly recon missions over an area that I think would make a good battle zone, identifying bridges and roads that my units will move along, checking lines of sight, etc. Build a mission with no threats that has a populated world of air, sea and ground units. I like making mach loop missions for each map. Build a combat mission with a handful of ground units that move toward an objective, then add defending units, then add air defence, etc. Fly the mission at each stage to ensure the units are behaving correctly. Build up the missions until you lose more often than you win. This will establish a nice level of challenge. The mission generators are a great way to build larger missions, but they can be a challenge for beginners. There are great youtube videos on mission building.
  13. Big thank you to everyone for testing the stuffing out of this set of tools! My one tip, if you are seeing that constant tick tick in the terrain at 3 and 9, try Foveated Rendering > Preset > Performance in the OXRTK.
  14. I believe it's a known bug that the G2 can't talk to the 3090Ti yet. Something with the cable. According to the chatter on the MSFS forum.
  15. A thing of beauty! Thank you once again!
  16. Just wanted my F-16 AI complete their refuel then climb up into the tail of the tanker.
  17. Another question, while the topic is hot, with the old Lantirn pods you had to power up hardpoints 1 & 2 on the right panel. I am guessing those switches are redundant now and the ALQ-184 is hard wired?
  18. 30 fps is perfectly acceptable so long as it never drops lower. I've never played multiplayer, so I can't speak to it. Speed of Heat's VR settings are a good place to start. These are conservative settings that you can increase one by one until you find the sweet spot. I turn off terrain shadows, set Visibility Range LOW, MSAA x2, resolution 1440p. SSLR and SSAA are expensive settings to enable. If you are stuck at 30 you may have Vsync turned on in game settings or the NCP. I use vsync and get a solid 60 of course in single player with my 3080Ti. You can post screenshots of your settings here if you like.
  19. This is a "red herring", and it has nothing to do with the DCS engine. Your GPU is designed to run at 100%, but with the CPU, after 50% performance starts to degrade. After 85% you are hitting max CPU utilization. The idea that if my CPU was only running at 100% I would have better FPS is just wrong. There are lots of threads here on how to tune DCS settings. Perhaps you should be more specific about what you are trying to achieve. Happy to help out.
  20. This is a very challenging problem to solve. If you are testing the AI attack ability, you want them to attack and not fly around for hours waiting for them to "decide" to attack. There has to be some predictability to their behaviour. Check out Growling Sidewinders video on the new AI. This is a work in progress, so it will get better.
  21. If you haven't found the Matt Wagner tutorials on youtube, they are excellent.
  22. Wags' video on YouTube is an excellent tutorial.
  23. I've been struggling to get my E-2D's to maintain a decent airspeed so their escorts don't have to hang in the air like kites. Can anyone share some tips for good AWACS/Escort setups for missions?
  24. Shift+F10 will cycle through labels.
