  1. I absolutely agree, it can’t arrive too soon. But we have to give Lefuneste some time and space to work his genius. It’s not like he doesn’t have work and family responsibilities. We just have to be patient.... (Humming) (Tapping fingers on desk) (Alphabetising the magazines in the pile for recycling) Okay, Lefuneste, please, I’m begging you. I need it now!!!!
  2. J51_Balapan is right, the Enable Motion Features when in seated mode (Experimental) needed to be selected for IL2 to work in game. (I had it working fine out of game in Steam). Thanks for solving this frustrating problem for me Balapan.
  3. I'm no expert, but I feel there is far more incidental air activity around and about when I fly a PWCG career mission compared to an IL2 career mission.
  4. Hmmm. I have had this working in March (pimax, driver 4vr and openvr advanced (no hydra freepie). When I reverted to my hts Vive (am awaiting a new pimax cable, currently stuck at Shanghai airport due to covid, but that’s another story) things became (to use the technical terminology) “mucked up”. In steam vr both the vive controllers and the keyboard will snap left and right as desired. The joy2key is also doing its thing in steam vr) It is just not happening, either by keyboard or mapped joystick in IL2. The version of driver 4vr is The only other slight discrepancy, which I am not sure is necessarily relevant but maybe, as Winger mentioned, I see no ‘Advanced settings’ In the edit controller bindings list, instead it is “OVR advanced settings”. But it still works as per PDF in setting up the controllers. It is probably something basic I have forgotten to do, but can somebody identify what this is so I can get my snap view behind working again? I miss it!
  5. Vortice, Count is right on the money (ha ha) here, I agree with him totally. Use the 5x and 10x zoom feature of Migoto’s mod. One day VR will be so good this won’t be required but until then...
  6. I agree Jaegermeister, I am just over half way through and loving it. Great story line with plenty of variety. Thanks for putting it together as I mostly do just single player career and campaigns.
  7. I have a pimax and it does the same, I don't think it is an HP Reverb thing. (Unless it is a Reverb and Pimax thing only?)
  8. I hear you (so Voice Attack is even better in Elite Dangerous!) but at the end of the day you are not really winding a canopy open or closed with some kind of winder either. Pressing two keys together on a keyboard, working a combination of buttons on a warthog or saying "open canopy" all achieve the same end, it's just that in VR Voice Attack suits best for some functions as the keyboard is too difficult and my force feedback joystick and throttle don't have a enough buttons to map everything. No, I have not played multiplayer with Comms as yet. Still quite new and have been concentrating on single player careers and scripted campaigns. J5 Hellcat seems to have it sorted though, I expect that is the way to go.... When the time comes.
  9. As J5 _Hellcat_ suggests, Voice Attack is what you need. I just say “lights” and the cockpit lights switch on (or off). “Canopy” and the canopy opens (or closes).. and the list goes on. No need to touch a keyboard at all.
  10. Interesting thoughts JtD. I know when I fly the Bf 109s I am always reassured by seeing how much ammo I still have -it will sometimes affect my decision making. The use of coloured tracer to indicate when on the last few dozen rounds could be useful, but I’m not sure that can be arranged in the game. Big Al, I would not be in favour of ammo counters as a mod if they were not really a true thing for a given aircraft.
  11. It seems very odd that the tempest and spitfires don't have ammunition counters or gauges so that it can be seen at a glance how much ammunition in the cannon, machine guns (or both) is left. Why would the British decide that such gauges were unnecessary?
  12. Thanks to Nibbio, Wju and Lefuneste for working this out. I can now check my six nicely, and this is a great complimentary aid to Lefuneste’s zoom views in Migoto. Yep, playing IL2 now involves steam, steamvr, pi tool, voice attack, Joy2key, sometimes OpenVR to turn off chaperone, and now Driver4VR. Whew! But still, final result is worth it!
  13. I am wondering if this is being used by anybody? I am quite happy with my current settings, Lefunestes great mid for zooming and normal or small FOV, it’s pretty smooth. But then, I am always wondering can it be better still? I have not seen any mention of 120 Hz mode being used by anybody in IL2, maybe there’s a good reason for this. (Ie, not quite working or awaiting some pitool tweaks?) Any comments from the learned people on the forum? Thanks in advance. ,
  14. 486 NZ squadron flying tempests from Volkel in November '44. Missions are all quite short and start on the ground. The shortest was a 3min flight to strafe an enemy aerodrome just across the the lines and then home for tea and buns.
  15. Hi Fenris, I used the Lefuneste Mod presets adjusted for pimax5+ 14.0 above, and put that in the JSGME to enable. All pretty good, it just worked like I couldn't manage with the regular Migoto mod. Now there is the new release of IL2 and Lefuneste v15.0. What do I need to do to get things working as per 14.0 in 15.0? Thanks.
  16. You forget the addition of VR which takes the immersion to new levels. I personally bought into FC for the VR alone and don't regret it for a second. I obviously hope for FCv2 and v3 as soon as possible.
  17. Thanks Pat, love your work and am enjoying my multiple pilot careers I have working across BOS and now FC. I think I have a small bug for you. I have created a career in 56 squadron and was unable to assign skins for the lower half of pilots listed on the far right on the pilot screen as there is a brass plaque in the lower right which expands in size and overlays the lower half of the pilots so that I am unable to select them. Similarly, I am unable to select the plane on each individual pilots screen which I think should take me to skins selection also. The pilot photo (selection) just above does work however. I hope this makes sense. I am not sure if this is just a problem with 56 RFC or applies to all squadrons. Not a biggie to be sure, but I thought you might like to know.
  18. I am using your great skins Megalax, thanks for your effort.
  19. Thanks for that. Yes, I am raising the flaps and gear. I will keep working on my technique. Thanks for your advice
  20. Thanks Megalax, I’ll check them out.
