    VR Wow

    Yes, VR is fantastic, completely revolutionizes the playing experience. I could never go back to playing on a flat 2d monitor.
  2. Has anyone tried it? Oculus new payware app that lets you access the keyboard in game through a window. I would be interested if it works in game.

    When the P51 will be available?

    Nice roadmap, looking forward to 2019...although I don't even have time to play with all the toys that came out in 2018.
  4. There is a setting in difficulty settings to turn it off. But don't remember which one off hand.
  5. Great book, have read it a few times. Well written and researched. The only problem is he stops mid-44 so no late war analysis.

    Where's my thread about the FM issue collection?

    Well no, you are making the common mistake of thinking this is a discussion forum, it is not. The only purpose of this website is to sell product. The devs own the site, they pay for it, they set the rules. They can delete posts and threads as they wish without having to give any explanation whatsoever.

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    Not as much as NWE 1944-45.

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    If you want to talk about it purely from a business perspective, I have had long discussions with another successful wargame developper and he said the setting which sells the most, bar none, is North-West Europe 1944-45. U.S. players, which are still the biggest market, want to play with U.S. forces. So yes, from a purely business perspective, an expansion to Bodenplatte like Berlin or Normandy would make the most sense.
  9. The Rift works very well on mid-range systems. I have a i5-4670k@4.2GHZ/Vega 56. I get a steady 45 fps in QMBs/career which goes up to 90 fps once over around 1 km. My settings are balanced pre-set, high shadows/clouds, 110% SS/2xAA. Image quality is fine, gauges are a bit blurry, but the 2xzoom solves that when I have to read one. No doubt the Pimak is better, but I would have to upgrade most of my system to get decent performance, so that will have to wait.
  10. Thanks for all the testing. These threads are very useful.

    The French Foreign Legion will accept any qualified candidate, no questions asked. After the war, many SS men who were wanted for war crimes conveniently "escaped" by joining the legion. For about 20 years after the war, there was a large proportion of legionnaires with german accents. Not saying this is the case, but the Legion is the perfect organisation for soldiers who no longer have an army of their own.
  12. I have that issue sometimes. Seems to happen when playing too many QMBs in a row while switching parameters between missions. Not sure what causes it, but retstarting the game and/or rebooting the computer solves the issue for me.

    Bomber formation

    Standard LW tactic was to concentrate their forces on one unit, preferably one in the rear or out of position or without fighter support. So overall loss rate for the entire mission might be low but very high in the unfortunate unit that was targeted. But yes, very dangerous duty. My great-uncle flew on RAF bombers, he made it through the war.
  14. I presume you are referring to ground "shimmering" at medium/long distance? What solved it for me was turning on "HDR". This is on a AMD card, RX Vega 56. Settings: balanced, shadows/cloud high, distant landscape: normal, terrain filtering: off.
