  1. Thanks Chili. I'll try with the settings in the thread. I do use the 3Dmigoto mod for the cloud fix and zoom (and yes, Oculus) I've managed to get the 8600K up to around 4.7 stable with decent (but not fantastic) air cooling but I want it to last, so not pushing it too hard! Once I get some decent time, I'll run the test for you guys on my rig. (I did it back on version 2.012 with a 3gb GTX1060 on the Balapan track but things have changed a lot since then!)
  2. Hi guys/Chili, Firstly, chili, thank you for all of your hard work in compiling all of this data! With the improvements in version 3.008/9 - can you give me some suggestions for in-game settings for an 8600K/1080Ti combo as it seems we may now be able to push the GPU a little harder? OTT SS / Overall graphics / Clouds / Shadows / Distance, etc.? I'd like something fairly stable at 90, but I'm not one who suffers badly when it drops a bit below that, so I'm happy at anything above 45, really (as long as it's only sometimes, not constant 45!!) I also mostly play single-player - scripted campaigns and career. Thanks all

    Samsung Odyssey +

    Looks interesting. Just have to wait until they appear on Big Apple Buddy I guess! (UK user here!)

    I'm in for BoBP, please. Thank you for doing this. This community never ceases to amaze me with it's kindness, respect and generosity...
  6. Are you connecting to your Oculus machine via RDP? Only say this because I was trying to remotely install a game the other day and hit the same error and thought "ah, here we go again", but you can't open Oculus via Remote Desktop... (and you get given the same error message as the cert problem from a couple of weeks back)

    Cloud Shimmering

    Have to agree with Fenris - had bad shimmering when I first updated. Just cleaned out and re-installed and shimmering gone, even with settings at Ultra, with 150km draw distance. As an aside - where is the setting which prevents the mouse from going outside the game window? Since the reinstall, with the Graphics set to 1024x768 windowed, my mouse goes outside the window and is very annoying!! I can get round it by running at 1920x1080 (monitor resolution) but I'm sure I'm just being stupid and not finding the setting! Thanks.
  8. Hi guys, Has there been any word on whether there will be any VR optimizations/changes/improvements in 3.001? Just wondering if anyone has read anything in any of the announcements/comments from devs, etc.? Cheers

    GTX 1050 TI (4gb) @ VR

    I was running a 1060 3GB for a while in VR and it was fine. It was OK as long as I kept graphics settings minimal (Low/Balanced, Mirrors off, shadows off/low, etc.) and no SS. Check the baseline thread here: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/29322-measuring-rig-performance-common-baseline/ for my details (this is with the i5-8600K CPU) Still, the 1060 3GB looks like it's better than the 1050Ti performance-wise. I used to have an i5-3450 paired with the 1060 initially - then I found IL-2 in VR and the absolutely awesome experience of combat flight simming in VR made me spend loads of money to upgrade my rig!!

    Joystick (wich one choose)

    Anyone got any idea what sort of price the VKB throttle will be? I've got a Hotas X currently, but it's a bit lacking accuracy. I'm thinking about the T.16000m Hotas set up (stick and throttle) but if the VKB Gladiator MkII and throttle competes with that on price, I might well wait... Thanks! Note1: Does anyone have direct experience of both the Hotas X and the T.16000m sticks? Is it "night and day" going from the Hotas X to the T.16000m? Note2: How do the Saitek X52/55/56 units compare to these? Cheers (didn't mean to hijack the thread!)
  11. I have Gammaxx 400 push pull air cooler. I doubt I can do too much OC but I'm going to redo my thermal paste and remount it this week to see if I can get stock clock temps down, then maybe try some gentle OC. Anyway, hopefully the info will help people out!
  12. Hey - just ran the tests again using just Steam to set SS value at 1.7 Numbers are: Frames: 2914 - Avg: 48.567 - Min: 31 - Max: 65 Frames: 2882 - Avg: 48.033 - Min: 33 - Max: 65 So it looks like my previous best was with SS set to 1.0.. I ran again with SS at 1.0 and got: Frames: 4502 - Avg: 75.033 - Min: 44 - Max: 91 This is with CPU at 4.3GHz Passmark: 13806 Single-thread: 2589
  13. Thanks... I'll give that a try (e.g. try with High graphics but lower the landscape setting - see if I can get somewhere near to that magic 90!) To be honest, I was pretty impressed with the average 71fps I got with the settings as per the OP but every frame counts... EDIT: Avg 71 was with settings as per OP but with SS set to 1.0 (see additional post below)
  14. Yes, I'll try to do the test using Steam SS settings instead of OTT. What has been good though is that I did my first 8v8 quick mission with the settings as per my final test (ie. Graphics High vs my usual Balanced/Low) and found it to be very enjoyable with good detail and very few (if any) FPS slowdowns, so generally a very good and smooth and detailed IL-2 VR experience. The 1080Ti arrives on this week so I'll try to get the test re-done before then on the 1060 (it'll be really difficult NOT to install the 1080 immediately!! )
  15. Sorry for long, multiquote post but here it comes!! Hi guys - back again! Don't know what was going on with my system but just ran another couple of times through the test. This time I'm running a mild overclock to 4.3GHz First time I got this: Frames: 2724 Avg: 45.4 Min: 43 Max: 79 Then I plotted those out on a graph and it looked like ASW was on, even though in OTT I'd turned it off. So I "re-selected Off" in OTT (and put the Oculus HUD overlay on to check) and this time it actually turned off!! So I ran again and got these numbers: Frames: 4287 Avg: 71.45 Min: 44 Max: 91 I'm still not convinced that SS was at 1.3 as when I put the Pixel Density Oculus overlay on, it suggested it was at 1.0 but hey, I'm much happier with those numbers!! If I could just figure out a way of getting the Ctrl-2 thing to work (lock at 45fps with ASW off) I'd be very happy as I don't have much of an issue with running at 45 rather than 90... especially if I can run at High graphics settings, etc. This (Ctrl-2) just doesn't seem to work for me. I tried holding it down for some time but nothing and the OTT locks at 45fps with ASW permanently ON so I get the prop artifacts... I'm running the Oculus Home 2.0 beta - maybe this is interfering with the Ctrl-2 thing (or maybe I've misunderstood??)
