  1. When I built my new pc I reused my old storage drive so I copied my BOX install to it then copied it back to my new pc main drive put a shortcut from the new folder on my desktop and launched from there, everything worked fine.
  2. I hooked up my Lenavo headset to try out the new zoom features and I found I'm just as bad Iding planes in vr as I am on my triple screens I don't fly vr, I get sick in 10 minutes of it, never could get over it.
  3. There is almost always a loss of signal when the F9 lands on the drone ship, something to do with plasma from reentry interferes with the signal.
  4. Looking forward to this, flew this scenario back in the day in AH with 200+ players, was a blast.
  5. I've been there twice and enjoyed it a lot, it is smaller then Dayton Air Museum and you can easily cover it in a day.
  6. I was alt-tabbing back and forth but apparently I wasn't giving the program enough time, I went and made a sandwich today and it worked.
  7. Is it normal to have to restart BOX to have a mission show up? When I complete a mission and want to do another I have to restart the sim to have it show up.
  8. This was it, I needed to map it as an axis not as buttons, Thanks.
  9. I have pitch trim and roll trim assigned to the hat in game , it doesn't work in the P38 or P51. The trim does work using the keyboard. I don't have any more buttons available and wanted it on that particular hat so I had access without moving my hand. Just noticed I put this in wrong forum, sorry.
  10. I have a Thrustmaster TWCS throttle and want to use trim on the top hat switch but it doesn't work,, is there a restriction on using hat switches for trim? The hat switch works and I have functions mapped to the other hats on the the throttle.
  11. I thought that was it but when I use it I'm looking back and slightly down at my seat. I deleted all the custom plane settings to be sure I didn't change it somehow.
  12. Is there a way to set a button to zoom on the instrument panel? I use TIR5 and fine it difficult to focus on the gauges.
  13. Wish I could help, I ran vr but couldn't maintain frame rate so I turned off vr in IL2 settings and everything returned to normal on my triples. I'd submit a ticket to support.
  14. Did you delete all IL2 folders after uninstall? Uninstalling from control panel can leave some files behind which you have to delete manually.
  15. Radeon RX 480 is quite old? It supports DX 12 and just came out last year. I have 16 gigs of ram and I5 4690. I can run IL2 at max settings with 120 framerate so I would think my system is more than capable. I rebooted to make sure nothing else was running and got the same results.
  16. I get title screen then launcher crash. W10 x64 R480 video card no overlay I've set the key in conf but the log file is still blank..

  17. I just got this setup earlier this week and to get it to work in BOS I had to use the target software to build a profile with all the buttons assigned DX numbers.
  18. My perspective as someone new to this game is that it's never going to reach its potential without basic tutorials to get new players past the initial stages. I'm new to this game and would have loved a tutorial for the basics with tool tips to get me past the initial flight stages of taking off and engine management in this sim. I have played fighter games years ago such as Air Warriors and Aces High and was reasonably proficient and I still found this game very hard to get started and can only imagine how difficult somebody who has never done any type of flying would find it. I've watched the youtube videos and while they help it's not the same thing as in game hands on. I feel for the sim to grow there really needs to be something for new players to help get started.
  19. A tutorial for newbs would be great I bought BOS and BOM during the xmas sale and am still struggling to play. I played Air Warrior and Aces High many years ago and still am finding this game overwhelming.
