  1. I have been interested in VR for flight sims for a few years but have not tried it. I currently have a i7 10700k with 32Gb 3200 MHz ram with a GTX 1080 8Gb graphics card with a Samsung SSD. With the settings below, in simple instant action missions I average ~110 fps, in the P-47 furball instant action over the channel map I get around 60fps. If I was to buy a Reverb G2 and somehow a RTX 3080 10Gb card, (this card is stretching the budget, the 12Gb or Ti versions are way outside my budget) would I be able to run similar settings at 90 fps? If not are there settings I have to reduce that wouldn't be too noticeable? Thanks for your insight, I am trying see if it's worth trying. If this would likely be marginal or sub-par to have a good experience please let me know.
  2. First off I notice sometimes gsync stops being active in DCS and I figured out a trick to make it active again. If you are running gsync in DCS and notice it isn't active, (caused by alt-tabbing out or other reasons) pressing alt-enter (which cycles programs between windowed or fullscreen) will get gsync working again, once or twice does it. Second, I don't know if this is common knowledge, but I decided to share in case is not. I got tired of trying to remember to start trackir, then voice attack, then DCS. So if figured out how to write a batch script to start everything, it's actually fairly simple. I made a .txt file and put the text below in it and saved it. Then I navigated to where I saved this file and in the view tab in file explorer i checked the box to show file extensions. Then I renamed the file by replacing the ".txt" with ".bat". You can either put this on the desktop and double click to start, or create a shortcut and put that on the desktop. The advantage of the shortcut is you can set the icon to the DCS icon stored in the DCS\FUI folder. You will have to modify the folder paths below to match your install paths. Hope these tips help. :::TEXT BELOW IS START SCRIPT::: echo off START "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\VoiceAttack\VoiceAttack.exe" START "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\NaturalPoint\TrackIR5\TrackIR5.exe" timeout /T 1 /NOBREAK START "" "C:\Games\DCS World OpenBeta\bin\DCS_updater.exe"
  3. I thought this was reported already but couldnt find it in the titles of all eight pages. The texture on the priming pump handle is upside down, please put it right side up.
  4. It would be nice if we could filter campaigns by module. Meaning if someone wants to see all campaigns for the f/a-18, when looking at campaigns in the eshop they can select the module from a drop-down list, then they only see the hornet campaigns available. likewise for other modules.
  5. Agree, was struggling with this yesterday, couldnt get rockets off while in flight in MP, had to look up keyboard commands to get to work, have since assigned to throttle buttons for work around
  6. Anyone know if this issue is fixed in 2.7?
  7. I agree, using buttons for trim works well on P51D but moves too quickly on P47
  8. The P47 bombing training mission doesnt mention using the arming switches left of seat. Can it please be updated so bombs are armed?
  9. I am having trouble getting my whole flight to the altitude briefed. I have been climbing on route to the first way-point. If I fly with more than 80% on the percent gauge then they flight doesn't keep up. If I fly with 78-80% then the my flight(s) stay with me but we never can get up to the required altitude. Hurts me most on the missions over 30K feet. The enemy will continue to fly over us. On the last mission we circled around to 10K ft before heading to the first way-point but still didn't get close to the required. Am I supposed to circle over base until we get to the required altitude, or is there a better throttle/speed to get to altitude better?:helpsmilie:
  10. Home base is on Ch1, using easy communication on and things work but I notice it automatically changes to Ch1, if I was on Ch2, after I select a radio communication option in F10
  11. It starts on channel 1, if I am in Ch1 or G I can connect to crew chief. If I am on Ch1 then I can communicate with everyone and hear the custom sounds, If I am on Ch2 I can still hear custom sounds, and can contact the second flight using the f10 menu, but if I contact my immediate flight, not the f10 menu but the flight menu, then it doesn't work on ch2 and I have to switch to ch1. Turning easy comms on to figure it out it automatically switches me from Ch2 to Ch1 to communicate with my flight. So going forward I will just stay on Ch1 which goes against the briefing.
  12. So far I have completed missions 1-4 and the radio seems odd to me. To give commands to rooster, it works if I am on ch 1 or 2, but to give commands to my flight (my wingmen) I have to switch to ch1 to reach them. I thought they would be on ch 2 according to briefing. Reflected, what radio channels are the two flights on? Thanks
  13. I agree, I can see the outline/shading? of the glass as if the glass part of the canopy was there. So now I close the canopy a soon as I can and leave it closed.
  14. This happens to me 2 out of 8 times in single player. Today I was in mission 4 of the hunters of yalu campaign. We were all formed up, the last radio call was for to orbit waiting for the supporting flight. But maybe a minute or so later, just cruising internal cockpit view the internal sounds just stopped. So it wasn't caused by switching the views. After the sound stopped I switched to the F2 view, the external sounds were still working fine, but switching back to internal F1 view the internal sounds still were not working. I have seen this same thing happen in a recent grim reapers video of the f86. I am running the latest Stable version NOT open beta. dcsF86_soundsstopped.log.zip
