  1. We might not be old, but...remembering that "flaps on a slider" issue...makes me feel so... Old
  2. Thank you for all your answers re motion-sickness. I do really agree with the OP that VR is the way to go, no comparison to 2d. Saying that, i still will rather wait for the tech to advance/my wallet expanding and hold off flying in the meantime (yes, VR is that good, but besides that, i am a mp-coop-online wars-believer, and something comparable will hopefully appear with airmarshal mode, i hope). But VR is not that good, that i would accept being dizzy for a week (!) after 15mins of flying. 3 things i will try on my next approach: - Baby steps...on contrary to: "Agreed. Although sometimes it's better just to let the nausea take over and go with it,.." - A fan (easy, simple, i can imagine very effective) - New hardware and state of the art HMD ($$$, i need to enter the lottery, or find a rich realtive, or...) Looking forward to all of this, meanwhile enjoying RL Cheers 6
  3. Thank you for this answer-seems i am not the only one who is willing to wait until this "holy grail" becomes "better". Next time i jump in i will try your approach instead of getting carried away by the incredible immersion.
  4. Just out of curiosity- am i the only one who had to quit VR because of motion sickness? That was using the first Rift CV... Saddening, cause i can' t really enjoy 2d since. And yes, i tried to accustom myself slowly-no success, just suffering for days after 10mins of use. Cheers 6
  5. That`s just about you, Sven.. Very, very sorry to hear about that and wishing you all the strength you can bring up Take care with that chemo and roll on, Sven 🤘 6
  6. This, to me, seems one of the main reasons why BoX will not attract the same amount of Players as the old Il2 (+hyperlobby, of course) did. Guess one had to be there to know what we`re missing out on now.... Real shame, i love the shell of this game, it`s basically a dream come true...but then when i use it, it tends to feels like some dreams that do come true- very empty.
  7. Wow..very generous! My fav book: War in a Stringbag: My pick ist Fc Vol1 , guess it`s 13
  8. Funny.. i replaced a gtx 580 (!) with a similar 1070 8 gig card two months ago. If things turn out like with my rig, you should be in for quite a nice surprise performancewise... Happy flying, 6
  9. In case of PK while being in the gunner position..does this count as death for TAW-stats? Because, i bailed out after PK: http://taw.stg2.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=6001&name=6high Thnx ¨6
  10. He, like most other politicians, likes to "play" everything and everyone. And mostly they don`t care about the plane, as long as it takes them HIGH.
  11. If any unit would have as many engine failures as i have random crashes of the game, i guess the mechanics would get into serious trouble...
  12. This might really resolve my temptation It`s rare to have people voice their views the way you do in a forum, thoughtfully and modest- most just use the anonymity of the internetto bloat their ego`s... So thank you!
  13. Thank you LG, STG and all who were involved to bring this great project to where it is now: A thrilling and fun experience in the spirit of the online wars from "back then". This, for me, really is the only way i like to play the game: objective-oriented, coordinated teamplay, not just whirly furbals. Trying to be positive, i take the firework of emotion going off in this forum and in game chat as a sign of approval by the community, this server is really seems to be giving people what they envisioned. And as always, for some it`s too much- be careful what you wish for, it might come true. And look a little different than in your dreams. So ultimately, i am with Haza- please do restrain yourself from stirring it up - it does not honour the effort and hard work put into this project by it`s designers. Usually i fly axis, this campaign i chose allied, and i must say, it was a very coordinated and friendly atmosphere! Thank you and congratulations to everyone! Next round, back to the "dark side" 6
  14. Am i the only one tempted to not try a landing when returning in a seriously injured AC, but just leaving the mission to get "in flight"? I haven`t done this so far, but i sometimes regret getting killed or ditched trying to land, instead of a +1CM for disconnecting, specially when i am low on planes (happens when you`re a crappy suicide bomber pilot like me) Just wondering, or am i getting something wrong? S! 6
  15. Something strange here: http://taw.stg2.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=21087&name=6high. I got creditet with a GK i never made...in fact i got 3 CTD`s today on the server, including that mission. I am wondering if this is serverrelated and other people are experiencing the same or is it my rig? Thank you, 6
  16. So God is a patch and Jesus is Hans?
  17. Just wanted to say thank you for the great server DED! I am really enjoing the mission design, it`s very immersive and has just the right difficulty settings. S! 6high
  18. Hey Faustnik I had this problem since one of the updates about a year ago. Sorry to say, i never managed to get rid of it. I tried just about everything. Searched the Forum, Internet, tried different USB ports, reinstalling BOS, tested with a 2nd MSFFB (same thing) and so on. I use Win7 aswell. In the end i just resigned and use a X52 now. I have the hope, that sometime in the future it will work. Greetings 6
  19. Wow...this is a great way for the sim to go ahead! Thnx!
  20. You bet...and that DM ! Those things NEVER exploded when they hit ground..never mind the angle of impact
  21. Well, i just came back to BoS after a half-year break. Before i left, i had that same problem with switching ID`s (Win8.1, Saitek Pedals, X52 Throttle, MSFFB2 and a Logitech Gamepad). I guess there are a lot more people around suffering from that problem than we can see. Perhaps some just dump the game or take a break like me (although my reason had nothing to do with BoS..), or just simply reassign everything when it happens I am really glad to hear that the Dev`s are looking into it! After reading through this thread, i suspect my gamepad to be the culprit, and will check later if removing it will solve this, as well as when it comes to the wild shuddering of my trusted MSFFB2.
