  1. I believe he is talking about Asynchronous Spacewarp: https://developer.oculus.com/blog/asynchronous-spacewarp/
  2. Hey Simo, thanks for your rapid answer!! Your sequence is identical to mine and now I am very happy not to having any additional adapters to organize. Cheers, Monty
  3. Gents, before leaving for my business trip today, I managed to set up the new PC yesterday evening. So I will be ready to set up the Rift latest Saturday morning... Working on a checklist, what to do with the new system (installing drivers etc.), I feel uncertain, if the HDMI cable of the RIFT fits to my Gigabyte GTX 1070 Gaming G1 HDMI connection. Since I am in the office, I cannot check if the HDMI sizes match. What HDMI size does the Rift have? This is a pic of the backplate of my GTX1070: http://www.gigabyte.com/fileupload/product/3/5921/20160624191242_big.png Please advice, if I need an adapter in order to get it before setting everything up. Cheers, Monty PS: To wait for an ordered Rift is hard, having no time to set up an already received Rift is even harder :cry_2:
  4. So, my Rift will arrive today. I am already excited like a child on Christmas Eve... The rest of my new system has already arrived respectively will also arrive today. The boxes are starting to pile up and my wife starts thinking "what the heck is he doing?" :D Unfortunately I will have to wait for Saturday to set everything up, since I will be on a business trip for the rest of the week :( Make sure you guys are around this weekend to help me in case of troubles :helpsmilie::thumbup: Cheers, Monty
  5. Too late, everything has been already ordered. And if you are waiting for a Oculus Rift, you just cannot wait a few weeks longer ;) Setting up the system not before this weekend, since I have a business trip end of the week :(
  6. Sure I will... Can't wait for everything to arrive!
  7. I am aware that the Rift (or VR in general) has not such a high resolution. But do you guys run into any problems identifying everything right in the cockpits? Like using the TAD or TGP in A10c...? Or are you zooming in then like in TrackIR? How is the quality of "information" you get from the displays? Didn´t sleep a lot, can´t wait for the Rift...
  8. Thanks BitMaster for your detailed and very useful comments. The Corsair RAM is the LPX-series and therefore should meet the requirements of low profile. Since I switched to water cooling, I should not run into any problems now - hopefully... The motherboard has only two RAM-slots, therefore I wont have to decide which I will use :D Cheers, MadMonty
  9. Gents, thank you so much for all of your support. Since I couldn´t wait to order my rift, I just ordered the following components: Case: Thermaltake Core V1 Snow Edition Board: MSI Z270I GAming Pro Carbon CPU: I7-7700K GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming Cooling: Corsair Hydro H90 RAM: Corsair DIMM 32GB DDR4-3000 Kit SSD1: Samsung 850 Evo 250 GB for Windows SSD2: Samsung 850 Evo 500 GB for DCS HD: Seagate ST2000DM001 2 TB Power-Supply: Seasonic X-750 As you can see, I changed to water cooling and some other things. I trust, that everything will be fine... Cheers, MadMonty
  10. Gents, I will be in the club in a couple of days. Just ordered my Rift, it will arrive beginning next week. Since I had to buy a complete new PC - which I can´t set up before next weekend - I won´t throw up before next Saturday. I will come back with my review - after cleaning my screen. Wait... What screen??? :doh: Cheers, MadMonty
  11. I just found out, that a Z720 + 7700k system is a bit more expensive than the Z710 + 6700K, but only a few couple of bugs. I also read, that the architecture of 7700k is similar to 6700k, but the overclocking ability of 7700k is much better. So an alternative could be 7700k + MSI Z270I GAMING PRO CARBON I just wonder, that MSI specifies 2 x 3.1 USB outputs on the front, while the Thermatake case has 2 x 3.0 USB connectors. Will I run into problems here?
  12. After some further research, I tweaked the system a little bit... Case: Thermaltake Core V1 Snow Edition Board: ASUS Z170I PRO GAMING CPU: I7-6700K GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming Cooling: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Corsair DIMM 32GB DDR4-3000 Kit SSD1: ADATA Premier Pro SP900 2,5" SSD 128 GB for Windows SSD2: Samsung MZ-75E500B 500 GB for DCS HD: Seagate ST2000DM001 2 TB Power-Supply: Enermax Platimax 80 Plus (750W) - to be safe The GPU is a bit better, also the CPU-cooling. Upgrade to 32GB as proposed by dburne. Downgrade on mainboard. Two SSD´s to run DCS on SSD. Still appreciating any ideas for improvement. Cheers, MadMonty
  13. Gents, reading your thread is very dangerous! Now I want an Oculus rift too, dam it :doh: I started a thread for my therefore needed new system: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?p=3014191#post3014191 Please have a look and share your thoughts... Cheers, MadMonty
  14. Dear all, after being involved into sims for a very long time, I did quit playing sims in 2009 due to a lot of work, marriage, kids etc. Last year I started to return to DCS, being overwhelmed from the development of the past years. Since my wife has been shocked by the size of my former PC (big tower), I decided to go for a gaming laptop. I bought an ASUS Asus ROG G752VY-GC084T / Intel Core i7-6700HQ / 16GB RAM / GTX980M Laptop which works very well for DCS (having TrackIR4 and Hotas Warthog). For several month I have studied the development of VR and since the next generation of VR-glasses will take some time, I am willing to invest into an Oculus Rift by now. My Laptop runs fine, but with my current setup the frame rate can drop from 75 down to 30/40 entering a hard-fought battlefield. Therefore I think, my Laptop cannot provide enough performance on the high (detail) level I would like to play with the Oculus. I am now looking for a complete new desktop system as a replacement for my laptop. Since my lovely wife is still around, it should be a mini desktop (with a white glitter case :D ) Being “out of business” for a long time, this is my first approach after some research :helpsmilie:: Case: Thermaltake Core V1 Snow Edition (unfortunately without glitter) Board: Asus Maximus VIII Impact Gaming Z170 (is that “too much”?) CPU: I7-6700K (since DCS need a lot of CPU, should I go for the 7700K?) GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Dual OC (or should I run for a 1080? With the tight system, I think lower energy consumption helps in terms of temperature) Cooling: be quiet! Dark Rock TF RAM: Corsair DIMM 16GB DDR4-3000 Kit SSD: ADATA Premier Pro SP900 2,5’’ SSD 256 GB HD: Toshiba DT01ACA200 2 TB Power-Supply: Enermax Platimax 80 Plus (600W) – (or should I go for the 750W, cause Oculus Rift needs additions power?) I would very much appreciate it, if you pros have a look on the configuration and giving me feedback, if everything is fine – especially in terms of running an Oculus Rift. Many thanks in advance!

  15. Hey Shane, I think we both run into the same problem... As described in my posts above, I had to switch my German WIN10 to Englisch (US) in order to get VA understanding my commands. After the tip of Hollywood, I switched back to German WIN10 and changed the setting of VA to my then available English speech engine. But running a German WIN10 with the Englisch speech engine resulted also in external views after saying a command (e.g. "attack utility" ended up in the F5-external view, since the last command "attack utility" in the comm-menu is F5). I solved the problem by keeping the German WIN10 with the English speech enginge, but switching to the US-keyboard. Maybe, that solves also your problem. If anyone has a clue, how to keep the German keyboard, please let us know... Cheers, MadMonty
  16. Hey Hollywood, thank you so much for your help - you solved my problems! Whenever you are in Munich (Germany), let me know, I owe you a beer... Cheers, MadMonty
  17. Thanks for the tip - it did not solve the problem, but the setting was wrong... (at) Hollywood: Thanks for your PM. I think I have problems to reply on your PM, why so ever... Here is my reply: Hi Hollywood, thank you very much for your quick response, much appreciated... I already had 1.5.12 installed, but I didn't uninstall the previous version proper. Now "Start Missions" runs perfect and Num0 etc. are working fine... BIG THANKS! One problem left is, that the VAC ATC Menu Mod is not working properly. After installing via JSGME, the DCS key for radio command (which should open the comm menu) does not work anymore... Therefore no messages will be transmitted via VA. It runs fine without VAC ATC, but I think I will run into problems to radio to the airfields, or? Any idea? One last question: Do you have any idea, if I can use VA without changing my German WIN10-system to English? Cheers, MadMonty
  18. Hey fellow pilots, I have installed VA and VAICOM for the very first time. I did everything according to the manual, having also the ATC Mod installed and running VA as an administrator. To get VA running on my German system, I needed to install the English (US) speech pack and to switch my PC to engl./US. Now VA understands my commands and runs well in DCS A10C. But as soon as I speak the command "START MISSION", the Num0, 1, 2 and 3 keys have no effect anymore. I cant use VA after this initial command. So I have to start the missions without this initial command. This is the VA log: 1:31:12 AM - Listening suspended 1:31:12 AM - Ready for commands. 1:31:10 AM - Easy Communications is True 1:31:10 AM - DCS data fetched. 1:31:10 AM - 'D:\Program Files (x86)\VoiceAttack\Apps\VAICOM\Tools\VAICOM_fetch_data.cmd' completed 1:31:10 AM - Launched 'D:\Program Files (x86)\VoiceAttack\Apps\VAICOM\Tools\VAICOM_fetch_data.cmd' (hidden) (waiting for exit) 1:31:10 AM - Fetching settings data.... 1:31:10 AM - Initializing.... 1:31:10 AM - ---- VAICOM 2.0 for DCS World ---- 1:31:10 AM - Recognized : 'start mission' Has anyone an idea, how to solve it? I already downgraded to 1.5.12, but it did not help... If someone also knows, how to use VA without changing the complete system to engl./US, it would be also very helpful. Cheers, MadMonty
  19. Has anyone tested, if the last week´s update solved the problem? I didn´t have the time to check it by myself, but I am curious to know, since I just bought OPF.
