    Tactical Air War

    Why did the map just roll to another mission with a winning condition being met (allied trucks lost)?
  2. Just me, or are those options all wrong? Bare minimum to change: Reduce screen resolution (unnecessary GPU load for VR) to 1080 clouds high HDR on Target FPS off

    Advice needed: The best i7 CPU

    100% true on the Pro 4. I have the MSI z370 gaming Pro Carbon AC. True about z390s, but I didn’t find the cost to move up worth it.

    VR Wow

    What is better completely depends on budget and your computer specs. 8k will be better if you can get the max out of it. But, if your specs aren’t top notch, then you won’t utilize its full potential. Then the 5k or Odyssey+ become “better”. Ive also heard that the sweet spot isn’t any bigger, so while FOV is bigger, edges are generally blurry and unusable, especially in sims.

    Advice needed: The best i7 CPU

    9700k here for a month now. Running 5.2ghz with 1.330v. I really didn’t even have to try, and my temps have never gone over 74C. It’s paired with a high-performance z370 mobo, 1080ti hybrid, 2x 240mm fans + 2 120mm fans (not including the GPU radiator fan). Edit: It’s worth noting that single thread performance is king for VR in this game, if it hasn’t already been said.

    Your whining and “holier than thou” mentality makes me want to start chute shooting. Seriously. Quit whining and carry on. I promise that nobody cares about your serious problems with perfectly legal activities.
  7. I downloaded the 10.5 file and extracted the single 3Dmigoto folder to my MODS folder to have activated by JSGME. The files I've edited are in that folder still. Extraction snapshot: Odyssey ini snapshot: UPDATE: While taking these screenshots, I noticed the file extensions for the other .ini files are actually not configuration settings (duh). So I made sure to rename it with the .ini on the back and it switched it back. Works just fine now. Thanks
  8. Sorry, my reference to x/y parameters in the first sentence was referring to the zoom.ini file. Changed and saved, then went in game, hit f10 and no changes were made. Thinking maybe f10 wasnt working, I also did the "hunting to 2" workaround. No matter what changes i make to either file, nothing happens.
  9. Requesting a bit of help:  No matter what zoom x/y parameters i change, nothing happens. I can even change the default zoom factor to 10.0 in the d3dx file, but ZERO changes take affect after hitting f10 or restarting the game entirely. Installed in MOD folder and enabled in JSGME. Button shortcuts work as designed, so i know the mod is working in that regard.
  10. Do you need to make the zoom.ini file read-only when changing to Odyssey? Only reason I ask is because my 10x zoom was not any better when I made the switch to that file for my Odyssey+. Update: Alright, I'm officially extremely frustrated. I've changed the "user_keymapping_zoom.ini" to "user_keymapping_zoom.rift" to nullify that (and keep it in case i ever transition to rift for whatever reason). I've then renamed the odyssey version to "user_keymapping_zoom.ini". My problem is that no matter what i input in to y6, x7, and y7, not a thing changes. After each "change" i go back in game and hit f10 where I get an audible tone, but nothing has changed in 10x zoom. I've also gone the route of editing the d3dx.ini default factor to 10.0 per instruction, but nothing there has changed either. I've even set a few of them to 25.00! Note: My SteamVR and MixedRealityVRDriver are on a separate drive from the IL2 steam install drive, since I have a dedicated SSD for the game. Would that affect anything? What the F am I doing wrong here?

    American military lingo to follow: The stoppages in the campaign remind me of "mandatory fun" in the Army. The exact opposite of what individuals want (we all have this time off, let's fly!!!), but what the powers-that-be feel we "need". Happy New Year all!

    Correct VR View?

    Bit of context first. I've been using trackIR for a few years and will be making the move to Oculus. As everyone did, I spent A LOT of time deciding on what I like best for the default view (something close to 1:1 while still being able to see some gauges). Long story short; I tweaked ALL of my default views to suit my trackIR needs, but I'm worried about needing to do the same thing in VR. So two questions: 1. Is the game's default view the go-to view for VR? I never liked my default view being 50% zoomed, so I always just zoomed out all the way and moved my pilot's head forward. 2. If not, is there an easy method for getting the perfect 1:1 view? Thanks, Coyote

    Can't wait to tackle the balance issue when that penalty is in effect for 5v40.... I have to ask, do any of you even attempt to understand downstream affect when providing input?

    Lol my thoughts exactly. Let's all get super pissy and take our ball and leave. Seems like we'd rather try to cure a symptom (ban an inividual) instead of the illness (multiple system/rule flaws). The question I have yet to see answered is how was a single fighter able to defeat ALL AAA on a spawn-able airfield? Nobody can question that this is a flaw in the system that was able to be exploited. @xJammer, thanks for bringing it to light so it can be fixed for next campaign.

    I LOVE this. @=LG=Kathon this would be a game changer for this server.
