  1. exhuming an older thread here ... I have a triple head set up: ~5440 x1050p The middle monitor is an older high end DELL 27" IPS ($AU2500 retail) panel and the outer ones are cheap hand me downs that have passed through at least three users to my knowledge. For me, they perform brilliantly and give a tremendous sense of realism especially when combined with TrackIR. The outer two monitors just don't quite have the same contrast ratio as the middle monitor but that not really an issue for me (in all games) as I am using the outer ones as peripherals and high details are not that important. Having said that, they are perfectly fine to fly with and I can highly recommend such a set up. After my post I completed the survey which at time of posting has some interesting results. It appears that ~35% have triple screen set ups really enjoy what they have and would want to go back to one screen compared to ~55% that only use one screen. Statistically, that's a very close margin.
  2. You don't have, nor have tried the triple head experience have you? FPS performance for me seems to drop only 20fps on some games with a triple head set up. Depending on the initial FPS that could be undesirable but I don't anticipate that to the an issue with the OP set up Once you do, you won't go back to one. The bezel width might be considered a problem for some on initial usage, but I can tell you that your brain quickly adapts and does not notice the bezel. There is no missing content between the bezels, it's just a tad further to the next pixel. Performance will unlikely be "poor", particularly with a decent graphics card like a 1070 or the ops 2060. If anyone can loan a couple of lower end monitors to trial a triple head set up they should give it a go. I and many other users can highly recommend it.
  3. I have a very big over sized desk with a steel base that I plan on making a base to mount the MTG and interchange my G920 pedals to.
  4. Instead of just one monitor, why not consider three? My center is 27" 2550 IPS panel and the two outer one are 24" third hand cheap ones. The middle one was quite pricey when I bought it new 8 years ago for photography and the others were about $125 each. The middle one is what gets my attention most and needs to be the best, the outer ones are still good but not as clear not had the same contrast ratio which is really only noticeable at night flights. The three monitors give me about 165cm of viewing space left to right which is about 5600 pixels. Add in head tracking and it's a great cockpit.
  5. I'm in Australia +8 GET and keen to join in.
  6. Thanks all. Given I would like a toe break, nice smooth operation and adjustable pedal width and can afford them, I have ordered the MFG Crossfire pedals. My office chair is nieces and wide as is my desk which is about 150cm at least so three pedals should fit well and allow me many hours of comfortable gameplay. Thanks again. I hope to be to review how I best on with them okkn face they arrive sometime after the 4th March.
  7. Recommend me some rudder pedals Hi team, [Edit: Thanks for all your help:I purchase some Crosswinds. I will receive then mid March] I currently own the Logitech X52 Pro HOTAS and am strongly considering purchasing a set of rider pedals. I don't plan on paying on my current HOTAS for some time as I have two sets die to a warranty replacement. Currently for pedals I'm looking at some VKB T-rudder mk iv as they have some good reviews online, are affordable and seem to be a good price. Currently I'm playing DCS (A-10C, F/18, F/14, KA50), IL-2 and occasionally Arma 3. Is anyone else using these pedals or could the team advise me on something similar? I'malso looking art three Thrustmaster TPR pendular rudder but they come at quite a high cost.
  8. I had the same issue as posted above. Checking the ports were open on my router/modem AND my virus protection Firewall software allowed me to see my friends server. A lot me reading later I found that in order to host a server you need to contact the developer explaining you want host a server and they will give you another log on with which to host a server. I'll try to find the thread for that ...
  9. Hi all .... A few weeks back late one night my career pilot was KIA and while closing the game after the death I saved him as dead. He is now listed as Pilot Killed and I really want to get him resurrected as I had spent months on the career. I have tried the date change (prior to and after) as per above however it has had no effect. Can someone advise on what else I should be looking for? Thanks. @Talon_
  10. I was just reading the the game settings and FAQ page (jeez it's bit old @2013) and noted the following: 21) Does the game feature triple screen compatibility?No, it doesn't The game does indeed support triple screens. Someone might want to update that because if i had read that prior to purchase I wouldn't hvae IL2 now.
  11. Hmmm .... I'm running three monitor using Nvidia software and a 1070. And don't seem to recall a setting to span across two monitors so one is the centre screen. When I (briefly) ran two screens mine were shared with a split right down the bezel of both. Why not just get a 3rd monitor? My centre monitor is a 2550 and the others are cheap second hand lower res monitors that do the trick really well.
  12. Thank you very much. Sorry to hear of your past computer woes, i know the feeling and after losing three years work a while back I set a RAID 1 Mirror system which has safeguarded my data.
  13. Hi all ... I have been enjoying this sim for a year or more now and here and there introducing it to others. There is a sticky for in this forum for a manual, however the link is dead and players would really appreciate access to a manual ... any ideas where we could locate one? Prior to members asking why one is needed: for ground map symbols, strategies, tactics etc etc.
  14. Hi all, Hoping someone can provide some assistance on this issue that I believe am having with TrackIR (TrackHat and TrackIR ClipPro) Of course, I have checked calibration for the TrackIR and have the correct Tracking Target selected in the TrackIR software. When I play IL2 Missions, everything is fine. When I play Campaign I find that my TrackIR (or potentially some in game setting) my cockpit seating position is off to either the left or the right. The most common occurrence is that I seem to be seated off to the right which causes the holographic (?) gun site and seating position etc not to align as it should do. I have to then move the TrackIR camera off the the right to line up my holographic gun site which leads the bomb site to be off etc. What's going wrong? The TrackIR works perfectly in other games (DCS, Arma 3, IL2 Quick Mission) so the problem seems to be only for IL2 Campaign. Any ideas?
