  1. Just picked this up - load into first mission and get 40fps on the deck. I usually get 60-70. Is performance going to be an ongoing issue in this campaign, or just this area?
  2. It's not launching in EA with FCR though, right?
  3. Gotta say this is a very exciting evolution of VR technology. I'm tempted to splash out, but know that we'll see similar tech used in consumer-priced HMDs in the next couple of years. Imagine if we could have this kind of clarity, with a larger FOV, AND DCS fps equal to the HMD's refresh rate? I reckon that's doable within the next decade.
  4. I wonder if the creators of this tool could build a simple website to share profiles? I'm currently setting up the F/A-18, and would like to know the best settings. Searching through 7000+ posts is not a very efficient way of doing so!
  5. What FPS are you running at, and do you lock it so that reprojection is on?
  6. I'm referring to the in-game tutes, the ones which actually show you in realtime how the airframe works. In comparison, the Harrier looks like it explains everything there. The Hornet not only fails to explain the majority of the aircraft systems, but the tutes that are there are often broken. It's a pretty dismal state of affairs for new players.
  7. Glad to hear you got it to a point that you are happy with. Alas I have not, so my G2 is merely taking up shelf space at the moment, and is occasionally dusted off when friends come over. I'm hoping I find the DCS VR helo experience more to my liking though, am going to give it a shot soon.
  8. Thanks guys - quick question, is the Hind very demanding in VR? I actually have her already, but haven't tried it in VR. I know the Tomcat is much more demanding than the Hornet - I'm wondering if the same is true of various helos?
  9. You poor bastard. It's stories like this which are why I generally offer a counter-perspective when I see a "DCS VR is perfect! It runs amazingly smooth! If you can't get it to run well, it's your hardware/software/ineptitude at setting it up". Some people find DCS VR fantastic. Others do not. That's why my advice is always try before you buy. I wish I had - I have an AU$1100 Reverb G2 sitting here gathering dust because of people claiming DCS VR is perfect.
  10. Check out the Hornet then. About 80% of its avionics aren't explained in the tutes.
  11. Hmm, so it appears opinions are mixed. I guess I'll just have to jump through the hoops to set up my G2 again and try it for myself once the Apache module comes out.
  12. I'm not a big fan of DCS VR in the fast jets due to the performance issues. However, I was wondering whether there is much of a difference in the perception of reprojection effects when flying choppers? Are they less noticeable because you're flying low and slow, and much less likely to get into close range with fast-travelling adversaries, as seen during the merge? I find the blurring/ghosting in these moments really puts me off VR, but I'm hoping that won't be the case with the Apache. Anyone here got experience in VR with choppers vs fast-movers?
  13. You won't be able to run your G2 at native res if you want a lower frametime. Start at 60%, and work your way up.
  14. Ah, the old "something is wrong with your PC" chestnut. This leads to so many people wasting days on "tweaking" their systems when nothing is wrong with them. I personally have worked in the PC building and overclocking industry for about two decades, and my existing PC is in the top 0.1% of all VR systems on the planet, according to a variety of online-validated benchmarks. It's actually not that hard to build and maintain a PC these days - the issue isn't that people have screwed up systems, it's that the experience of VR is extremely subjective. What looks perfect to one simmer may look terrible to another. FPS numbers do matter - because it's the only objective way of measuring the experience. Again, for some people 45fps or lower feels like "a completely fluid" experience. For me it feels like a stuttering mess. I'm not saying your opinion doesn't matter, and that you're wrong to enjoy VR. I'm just saying that folks need to be aware that the VR experience is extremely personal, and to be wary of spending money or time chasing an experience that they may never find.
  15. Hey folks, I've got the TM Hornet grip with a Virpil base, and can't seem to find an illustration showing which buttons need to be mapped - there are a few floating around, but they seem to miss things like (what I assume to be) the radar elevation wheel. Can someone please point me to a diagram showing me what buttons I need to map to my Hornet grip, as well as what should go on the Virpil throttle I have? Chuck's guide uses a different stick to the official Hornet grip, so I'm looking for what is the most realistic mapping.
  16. I have a 3090 with an 11900K and 64GB of RAM, and find the G2 runs terribly in DCS. 45fps with half decent gfx, or 60fps with 2007-era graphics, is not to my liking.
  17. The 11900K is currently the fastest CPU for DCS - you can buy pre-tested ones from Silicon Lottery that have been verified to overclock to certain levels. I got one that sits on 5.2GHz on 4 cores, but drops to 5.1GHz on all 8.
  18. Doesn't the Hornet grip from Thrustmaster have this exact feature?
  19. Very cool, but I like do like the fact that DCS UFC is plug and play, and also has higher quality visuals to represent each button. Can I ask what skill level you need to use this app, in both coding and image editing? How long did it take you to whip up that example? Finally, reckon there will ever be the option to output radar or RWR displays - that's one feature DCS UFC is missing which I'd kill for.
  20. Any update on whether or when we'll be able to swap seats online? I play mostly with a squadron doing an online Liberation campaign, and the lack of this functionality effectively cripples me as we don't have enough RIOs to go around. I admire the work that Jester can do, but it'd be much better if I was able to take over the Radar for long-range BVR. Unfortunately I'm now switching to the Hornet to get around this issue, but it's killing me as the Tomcat is by far my favourite jet in the sim.
  21. This looks like a lovely mod, and I was wondering if you could use your talented skills to update units that are much more frequently seen by naval aviators - mainly the S3 and Seahawk?
  22. Hey Peter, just wondering if there's been any progress made on exporting radar or RWR displays to tablets? I'd pay triple the price of the software for this functionality. Hell, quadruple!
  23. I specifically purchased two Lenovo e10 and one e7 tablets for this app - work perfectly! Great digital panels for my Tomcat. Now if only we had radars/RWRs it'd be perfect!
  24. I currently have flaps bound to a slider axis on my Virpil throttle - will setting this to, say, 40%, now deploy maneuvering level flaps? Or do they automatically deploy when used for maneuvering? Just so I'm clear on this - when I steer up to the shuttle, I then use the squat lever to drop into position. This usually disengages NWS. Are you saying we have to drop the tail hook now to disengage NWS? Or can I use my NWS button on the grip?
