  1. Another one. I cleaned up the module, eliminating the Mi-24 (trial), which I no longer have. I also verified all the files by doing the full check. The program seems to work a little better, but it is still crashing after a few minutes. dcs.20220118-001227.crash
  2. Thanks for the tip. I launched the game, flew for a few minutes, then hit escape to test my ability to edit settings in the menu. I was able to do so without instantly freezing, although I got as series of shimmering, vertical lines in the headset. This typically happens when the game is just about to crash. To my surprise, it did not crash for a couple more minutes, allowing me to configure a few more settings and save them. Then, if crashed. In short, I got marginally better results, then it crashed as always. I cannot say if disabling the selective USB contributed to the extra minute of stability, but I am skeptical. Thank you for sharing the tip however! It may come in handy in the future. Crash file attached. dcs.20220116-222620.crash
  3. Not yet, I was unaware of this. I have just used it. I will test the game soon and report back.
  4. Thank you, here are the files. dcs.log-20220112-014234.zip dcs.log-20220112-014208.zip These are CRASH files. dcs.20220108-153603.crash dcs.20220108-153501.crash dcs.20220109-213450.crash dcs.20220108-230027.crash dcs.20220108-153940.crash dcs.log
  5. Reverb G2 Nvidia 1080ti DCS once ran great in VR, but I had issues with VR in FS2020 (repeated CTD) and I concluded it was time for reset. I wiped everything except my files, and reinstalled everything. From there, DCS and IL2 quit working properly. Both work from the desktop, but in VR they crash after a few minutes of gameplay. Incidentally, FS2020 works better than before. I had other issues as well, but I managed to resolve most of them by repeatedly uninstalling and reinstalling Steam VR and WMR (Windows Mixed Reality). Things are working fine now, except I get a game freeze in both titles after about 3 minutes of play or so. Any ideas? Thank you!
  6. No, my G2 plugs into a USB C port, and I only have the one on the back panel of the PC. By uninstalling and reinstalling Steam VR and WMR, I have SOMETIMES got past the menu screen, and it lets me fly. However, when I open the menu to change a setting, that freezes the game in VR and on Desktop. I have to CTRL-ALT-DEL to shut it down. These problems started when I reinstalled Windows a few weeks ago because I was having problems with FS2020 and could not figure them out. Now FS2020 works fine, but DCS and IL2 crash in VR. I wonder if overclocking is part of this? Perhaps when I wiped Windows, it deleted my overclocking settings? Those were set by manufacturer, and I can probably fix them with a tutorial, although I don't know if they were affected at all. Still can't figure this one out. I'd upgrade the card, or buy a new computer, but the prices right now are simply ridiculous.
  7. Thank you all. I tried these solutions, but they do not seem to work. The view is still frozen in VR, while it works on desktop. If I remove the VR headset, I can move the mouse on desktop. When I put the headset back on, the mouse is in the new position as on the desktop, but the view remains frozen. I cannot move the mouse in VR either.
  8. - Reverb G2 - Nvidia 1080ti, drivers updated When I launch DCS in VR, the view is fixed. I can actually use DCS, select an aircraft and fly it, but whatever way I turn my head, the view remains fixed forward. So, if I am flying and looking at my HUD, and turn my head 90 to the right, I am still looking at the HUD. This problem begins in the menu, so no matter where I turn my head, the menu remains fixed in front of me. Any ideas? Thank you!
  9. THANK YOU! That is super helpful. Appreciated.
  10. The planeset restriction is preventing me from using the mix of aircraft I am wanting to use. I am also unable to select USAF Aggressors as an option; it does not appear in my list. Is there a way to solve this? Thank you!
  11. A couple issues. 1. Planesets are cool, but sometimes you want to mix the eras, for example to simulate operations against smaller nations with outmoded airframes. Is there a way to work around this? Another case: I recently wanted to create a mission with F-14 A and B models in it, and only the A model was available. Changing the date did nothing to make the B available. 2. USAF Aggressors isn't available as an option. They are part of the Red coalition, I checked that, but they do not appear in the dropdown, so I cannot select them. Any ideas? Thank you!
  12. Hello, I intend to build a mission for the Syria map, to go with the bunches of other missions I've designed. However, this time I want it to feel a little more authentic than my usual efforts. To this end, I am planning to use the Syrian Defense Network (2012) (via Pikey). That will be there to deter any adventures over Syria. But the BLUE player will fly for Israel and with allies, must oppose a coordinated Syrian strike on Ramat David and possibly a few other locations. I want to make this mission feel somewhat "real" although I will try to incorporate random triggers and varying tactics on the RED side to add replay value. That said, what would a strike look like? For example, how many aircraft, how many waves, what altitude? I have to work with the planeset afforded us by DCS. Israel has the F-15C and F-16C and those will suffice. But Syria has the MiG-21, and the MiG-23, a few MiG-29, and the Su 22. I do have the Su-22 mod, but would rather not use it unless DCS has it as a default asset just because I want to minimize the mods players need to fly the mission. I know the 23 is a default asset, and the 21 and 29 are there. So, using the 21, 23, and 29, I would like to set up a believable strike package with realistic numbers, altitudes, loadouts, and tactics. Does anyone have any knowledge they might be able to share that will help me design this one? Thanks! -TheHighwayman
  13. Howdy! I am an experienced DCS pilot, and mission builder, but I am not that great at dogfighting. I am trying to learn how to dogfight. I've watched the legendary Falcon 2.0 video, as well as several others. I set up a dogfight against myself and another F-16 on expert AI mode, and tried to master the F-16 corner speeds, so you will see me turning alot in the attached tacview. I am seeking a critique and any tips some of the veteran pilots here might have. I'm tired of losing to the AI in all but the most lopsided engagements. This fight is probably one of the first I was able to "draw" with the AI. Normally I just die. We both ran out of fuel after about 10 minutes with heavy burner usage. Engagement is guns only, no stores, pylons removed. Feedback welcome, please. Thank you! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BxbuX2zaTTMc3aKRS9fY4b2gK_VxeMR7/view?usp=sharing (Tacview posted to my Google Drive since DCS forums won't allow a tacview attachment.)
  14. I would expect this to be released in mid-late September. Worth the price and the wait though!
