  1. This need to be optional in that case. In VR I have a sun that blinds me already (PG theathre at least). In Il-2 the effect is way over the top (the sun is too large in VR only, due to the fisheye effect in VR), this is not something I would like to have in my gameplay in DCS.
  2. I can recommend CTS, you get most of the functions you need. Takes a bit of practice to configure and use, but when you understand it, it'll rock your world. You can switch profiles while ingame using the controller bindings.
  3. Have more of you tried to uninstall this KB? It's been widely reported as problematic. KB5001330 https://www.windowscentral.com/latest-windows-10-update-causing-nightmare-gamers https://www.windowslatest.com/2021/04/21/april-2021-patch-is-now-causing-trouble-for-more-windows-10-users/ Normally you shouldn't have to do these things, but if you are doing differential diagnosis it can be a interesting test. For security reasons you should install it again after your tests have concluded. It can be valuable to know whether this update is part of the problem-stack.
  4. Thank you very much Shaun, much appreciate the advice you've given.
  5. Dear Dr.Speed. Are you using the fpsVR builtin 'hotkey' in the Settings, Advanced, "Frames data logging": CTRL-F11 And then you run the numbers yourself from the CSV created? Or are you just using the Median/AVG summary from the 'History Viewer' per run? I'm trying to find the best way to get consistent results every time. I'm not sure if I trust the fpsVR to exclude the frames before the flight starts, before we mange to press 'fly' and start the run. @ShaunX, may I ask the same as above, are you running the CSV output and you crunch the AVG yourself with your own spreadsheet?
  6. Keep in mind, the 'first time' you start up an app/game in Windows it takes longer to do so, filesystem caching and more things. DCS behaves very much in the same way. On fast nVME systems it still takes quite long time to load for the first time of the day. The next time you start, it will be quicker. Perhaps as an experiment, let it run startup for even longer - perhaps your system has some other things making it tougher to start up for the first time. Maybe you prematurely closed it before it was fully loaded in. Oh, and add your DCS-folder to your Antivirus exclusion, otherwise AV will keep scanning those files being loaded, adding to the startup time. In Windows 10 defender, bring up the "Virus & Threat protection" control panel, "Virus & Threat protection settings" section, manage settings. There you will find "Exclusions, add or remove".
  7. An absolutely stunning study of the effects of 'everything' affecting VR performance in DCS, in a scientific manner. And one that has taken the time to explain how & why the effects occur. Much kudos to you sir! I'll definitely spend a weekend going through the list and improving my own rig. Thank you Dr. Speed. o7
  8. Thank you, I didn't expect anything outside of WWII to be part of this promise. But as you said, it wasn't part of the KS, which was perhaps the confusing part for me. I believed it to include the channel map which appeared to be a smaller copy of the Normandy. Hence why I asked. o7
  9. Hi, just an open question really, since there may be more backers wondering the same. Should the Channel Map have been added to our access as part of the "Normandy Map, Normandy Map Alpha access and copy of any Eagle Dynamics developed DCS product"? Perhaps I misunderstood the qualification sentence there. Cheers. o7
  10. Op, what do you wish to get out of the kind of query you're asking? It's a personal preference, it depends on the situation, airframe, bodily needs, how long I've been at the office. Etc and so forth. Right now while training I do manual, but I do autostartup quite often in MP because then I can have a short break from the screen.
  11. Qiou87, allow me to pitch in as a VR user. But don't be distracted from Flappie advisory because he's quite precise with his predictions. In the past with my own experience of Apple & Adobe software integrations I've had some negative impact on the smoothness how my games runs. These can sometimes do background sync against Apple & Adobe cloud services, adding to the processing you need to have available for VR. Perhaps you could try to make a new profile in the msconfig, where you do the 'hide all Microsoft services' and then go through the list and uncheck all other Adobe/apple service. After that reboot and retry and see how it runs. Usually when I troubleshoot these things myself I do just that, allowing Microsoft services to remain while getting rid of all other 3rd parties that may add to the already tight processing-schedule you need for VR. DCS does have some issues, the performance drop the longer you run it and how complex the maps are. It's just the nature of the complex beast this sim is. But I've been able to postpone my issues with optimizations (getting rid of bloatware), quite often I can run it for 6-8 hours before I have to do a restart of the sim. Earlier I was limited to an hour or so. I hope these hints can provide some wisdom. Good luck.
  12. Ah hm, nice observation. I checked mine as well. .\Saved Games\DCS\fxo is up to date, as of the time I updated my openbeta a few days ago. No older entries. .\Saved Games\DCS\metashaders2 does contain some older files from Dec 2019, Jan + March 2020 as well. I'm not entirely sure I have any problems related to stutter/graphics though. I'll keep an eye on it.
  13. Thanks, I do understand. Perhaps some frosty winter night. Or day.
  14. "As a user, I'd like to get notified in the topbar (or somewhere close to my Profile Name) when someone quotes my post or makes a mention so I can quickly jump to the post where ever who quoted/polled me." Perhaps a tiny "(3)" icon-badge (in the case I have 3 unread mentions) which I could click on and be taken to a page which all mentions or taken to the 'last unread mention'. I'm not concerned about getting email for it, because email management is too great as it is. I know this may be difficult under the circumstances with the current forum-software, but I thought I make a request regardless to hear if it's possible in later versions. Cheers. o7
