  1. @JG300_Egon So I use fullscreen mode with DSR @ 2560x1440p and vsync off in the game settings. However, i do enable Fast sync in nVidia CP settings and i don't get any screen tears. I find it useful to lock FPS in Nvidia control panel (i lock my FPS to 61FPS). This can help smooth input lag in GPU intensive scenarios (low flying over cities etc) The above can also be achieved with Riva tuner, lock FPS @ 61 and use scan-line sync at say -20 (or adjusting to where the tear is less noticeable on your screen). Riva tuner is also great for monitoring graphical performance and can help make better adjustments when paired with Msi Afterburner. It helped me achieve the best performance I am going to get on my current hardware (980ti & i7 6700k)
  2. @JG300_Egon for DSR to scale correctly to your screen you must ensure full-screen mode is enabled in the game settings. Enabling DSR resolutions without full-screen mode selected will over-scale when the game restarts causing the problem you highlighted above (at least in my experience).
  3. I had an Astro A50...It was pretty cool during its first 18 months but then slowly started to fall apart. An expensive piece of plastic garbage! (At least in my experience....) I'm currently using Bayer Dynamic MX300 headset (Its not wireless) . The sound quality is excellent and the build/sound quality puts the Wireless Astro headset to shame (In hindsight I really don't know was i thinking buying that plastic piece of Astro rubbish...). I would advise on Seinnheiser or a Bayer Dynamic headset if you want quality sound/build. Stay away from the gaming brands Corsair/Astro etc... they are selling on name/style rather than sound or build quality. (although Logitech have good customer services and are reasonably priced, build quality can be questionable on some products). Astro customer service was a nightmare to deal with. They don't carry spare parts either (whereas Seinnheiser and Bayer Dynamic do) so if something small gets damaged or breaks, your Astro headset is ready for landfill. I have my head tracking clip attached fine to the side of the MX300 with two small cable ties and it works fine. Like internet, you are better avoiding wireless when you can, fidelity should be better with cable. Anyway, i found i had the Astro Headset charging cable attached more often than not to prevent the battery running out over long sessions. Good luck with your choice. EDIT - Tracking clip can be mounted on Astro A50 to answer your question - But i really cant recommend the headset given my experience.
  4. 1. Kuban - I just love this map, the mountains and scenery are amazing. This map is the primary reason i reinvested in il-2 BOX series (I have bought all missing content since this map was released because it showed me this series can do so much more...). Further enhanced by the excellent Mods made by the community (Map texture,4k trees, winter map, Kuban playground, to name a few - Many thanks Mod guys!) 2. RoF - Still have a soft spot for this game. Got me into flight sims. I have FC but would sooner jump into RoF given the content and plethora of excellent mods available. 3. Hurricane - Because it's a hurricane... Also its the first model i ever made when i was about 11yrs old.
  5. Advertised? You think he is selling his plane guide for money? The guy took some time out to make a plane guide for the community, to offer some help, gratis! Fair enough, he made a couple of errors here and there, but who doesn't? Just say something along the lines of "hey bud, think you might need to correct X in your guide" Looking at some of the spelling and punctuation used by the critics here, one begins to wonder... Total lack of respect and manners. (Edited upon request & my apologies for calling other members "dicks")
  6. Well i had been holding off buying FC, as i occasionally knock some fun out of RoF, but after the recent BOX updates and some clarity from the devs surrounding all projects and their continued effort to resolve bugs, I decided to buy FC today. More out of support for BOX/TC than for more WW1 warbirds as RoF can still satisfy that itch i reckon (That said, I spent less than 5 min in FC today so cant compare the two yet really....) Now I am only missing the two pre-order Yaks to complete the series ๐Ÿ˜Š
  7. I would buy more 109 campaigns, in fact I'll buy anymore SC you make @BlackSix. I'm on mission 4 or 5 in Blazing Steppe, you might want to put a spoiler on above post to not giveaway the surprise of the laGG-3 in the last mission. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The official SC have really gripped my interest in il-2 recently. i sometimes dabble in MP when confidence is high after doing well in SC....only to soon return to playing SC with my tail between my legs!๐Ÿ˜‚ @ME-BFMasserME262 - I am on Blazing Steppe now and really enjoying it. My usual preference is to play the Luftwaffe but I'm enjoying the Yak campaign so far. SC are a good way to learn planes you may not automatically pick in MP or QMB. i bought all the campaigns after playing "10 days" after enjoying it so much. I really look forward to playing some of the community ones also when I am done with the official SC. Looking forward to your next release Blacksix.
  8. Many thanks, a nice surprise. Interested to see the work done on the river banks of Rhineland map, one of the first things i noticed when i flew it and was a bit disappointed, i look forward to seeing the improvement.
  9. Thanks @rowdyb00t that would be great! I thought it might be just my aging computer specs but seeing that you have a RTX 2080ti (I sooo want one...maybe some day!) and are experiencing the same issue well than I guess its something the devs will need to look into. Funny i was flying the Kuban map earlier and it wasn't so noticeable, but i was flying the Moscow map the other day and it was driving me crazy, flickering clouds smattering the horizon line. Hopefully the devs get around to looking into it, as other than that issue, the clouds look great IMO.
  10. I agree - i think the effect is slightly over done. I'm using the scratch-less canopy mod for SP which does exactly as described. It helps to make spotting that little bit easier. I don't mind some scratch effects but the current version could be less intrusive.
  11. Hi Rowdyb00t, Firstly thanks for the mod! I tried the mod a couple of weeks ago (v8) as i wished to get rid of the flickering distant clouds in vanilla, but I ended up uninstalling the mod and returning to vanilla clouds. I think i preferred the vanilla look and i don't recall the mod fixing the flickering issue with distant clouds. I did try tweaking some setting in nvidea CP, but i found any tweaks i made there made it worse or was expensive on FPS. I am a bit of a novice with game optimisation/tweaking graphics but have some experience with racing sims. I would be willing to try your mod again if you posted your nVidia settings or recommendations on how to get rid of the flickering. Many thanks, Billy System specs: CPU: i7 6700k @ 4.8GHz GPU: GTX 980ti RAM: 32GB SSD: M.2 drive
  12. Some real nice folks in this community. I think this is the third or fourth giveaway by different members within the community in as many weeks. Very nice gesture The Doctor - I hope good luck comes your way in 2020.
  13. It would be good to have in game comms introduced at some point as it does enhance the MP experience of most games IME (Providing it also includes a mute feature!). Still, with discord and TS, i wouldn't consider it a high priority at least from my perspective (I play mostly SP). I would like some bug fixing, map improvements and overall sound improvements to be prioritised..... but hey, I'm not the developer! ๐Ÿ˜ To be fair, I am happy with the improvements we have received in 2019 and hope we get similar progress in 2020, I've got faith the devs will continue the good work (Very excited about Normandy and I have barely scratched the surface of BoBP).
