  1. Great video - thanks for sharing it and the related news. I take comfort in the posts above that this will also affect the FC birds, but I sure would like to see some video featuring those FC planes, if you feel like making another video any time soon. Hope you and the team in Moscow manage to stay safe in these dangerous times.
  2. No, you do not need to buy the game through Steam in order to use VR with it.
  3. Just the way Steam works, as I understand it. Yet another reason why you should buy all your IL-2 GB stuff directly from the dev's website rather than through Steam.
  4. Made it to the last two of these and had a blast both times. It was great meeting up with Jason and several of the community members I'd only known through the forums over the years, and lots of fun playing around with the great setup in the IL-2 GB booth when crowds died down a bit. Not sure what my travel situation will be later this summer (already had to cancel a cruise this month because of some family medical issues IRL), but I'll be there if I can. Certainly recommend it for anyone who has a chance to get there.
  5. Thanks for the suggestions folks - turns out it just started working again last night for no apparent reason. Back to the great spam war of 2020
  6. LOL - maybe so. I've tried everything I can think of (multiple browsers, new user profiles, multiple PCs) other than resetting my router (I have no desire to take down my whole internal network, Plex server etc. when everything else is working and I can get to every other site I try except for RoF, and when the RoF site was working for me just a couple of days ago). Oh well, I guess it was probably time to take a break from trying to police that place anyway.
  7. Yeah - this was done a long time ago - check out this thread (and specifically the earlier thread mentioned therein) for details: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/56049-map-in-vr/?tab=comments#comment-855392 It worked really well back then - I hope/suspect it still does, but I haven't been able to get my IL-2/VR rig working for the last year and a half or so and haven't been able to try it lately.
  8. Weird - I can't get to the RoF forums or to riseofflight.com at all, from either Chrome (which was working just fine until yesterday) or from Firefox, which I fired up just to see if maybe something had gone screwy with Chrome. Guess I'll try from one of my other computers later and see if that changes anything. [edit] Doesn't work from my laptop either - very weird
  9. Just wondering if anybody else is having issues - I haven't been able to reach the RoF forums site for about the last 24 hours.
  10. From the TV show, it would be the Cheese Shop sketch. From the record albums, it'd have to be the Novel Writing sketch: But my all-time favorite is the Constitutional Peasants scene from the movie:
  11. Isn't that the way it's supposed to work, or do I misunderstand how trim flaps (tabs) work? I would have thought that when the trim tabs move down, that would force the elevator to go up, which would force the nose up (and tail down), thus rendering the plane "tail heavy", which is what you say you are trying to do by turning the trim wheel backwards. Am I missing something?
  12. I haven't seen anything about this being acknowledged, but I can confirm that it is indeed backwards on the in-cockpit compass of the SE-5a (or else the airfields, NML and the sun positions are backwards).
  13. Mossie, Me-410, Ar-234 and a map with the potential for being adapted for FC down the road - done and done!
  14. Hey Dude! You might want to check out this thread about how to get a map to show up inside the game in VR so it looks like it's down in your cockpit/on your knee-board: Haven't been able to fly (for various RL reasons) so haven't tested it lately to see if it still works with FC, but it was extremely cool for BoX.
  15. If you properly activated the mod package in JSGME and it doesn't appear in game, the two most likely culprits would probably be: 1. You don't have "mods on" ticked in your settings - updates often reset things like that to default, so it may may turned your setting to "mods off"; or 2. You haven't got the mod package installed in the proper directory and/or there's some problem with the folder structure of the mod package you are using. The easiest thing to do would be for you to post a screenshot or type out your folder structure from your IL2-GB main folder down to where your modded skins are located. Then folks can tell you whether you have them in the right place or not.
