    VR on screen display

    so long as it does not need to render anything more than your single screen at 600x800 or whatever you had it set at yeah why does it matter?

    New patch today?

    Looks like it added the remainder of the BOK planes , able to fly them all now, nice surprise.
  3. Everyone thanks for the replies, answered all my question perfectly, special thanks to JG51_Fenris_Wolf for the detailed answer.
  4. Hi I have a oculus rift and flying in BOK is jaw dropping to say the least. However I'm curious about the oculus debug tool vs steam VR pixels per display and super sampling options. Does one override the other, I normally run oculus debug in 2 and steam vr with supersampling 1.7 and enale advanced super sampling on. What is the right way to set this up? In BOS / BOK I seem to get a better picture with SSAO and HDR off , do other find this as well or do you use these? Specifically in BOK if applicable. That's all thanks

    First Flight

    bok stunning on monitors, bok simply jaw droping in rift - have fun your in for a treat
  6. ^^ Frost and Katdog add me to the list, VR is what brought me back to IL2 BOS . BOK in VR took was pretty good and blew the doors off, like you Frost I'm floored and amazed at what they accomplished with the new engine.

    VR vs. TrackIR 5

    After the BOK update tonight I will probably never fly using my monitors again with trackir, BOK with rift is simply amazing. Go to best buy get an rift, take it home try it out, if you don't like it take it back but do yourself a favor and try it with BOK
  8. I stand corrected on the above statement. Was judging only by the screenshots, now that I've had a go at the actual game I'm very impressed. This exceeded my expectations, the new Kuban map is amazing, the trees (the number of trees), the textures, the lighting, the old "il2" feeling is just amazing and with excellent FPS to boot, they nailed it with this one and it's only going to get better. This is the new standard by which flight sims will be judged. The HS 129 is amazing and in VR worth every penny, in VR this as close to real life that I've experienced in any sim to date. Really feels cramped in with those engines on each side, very comfy and beautiful throughout though and it feels heavy to fly. For early access my jaw is on the floor, amazing job to the entire team.
  9. Wow those green fields look great, the only improvement to the screens I've seen that I could mention is higher def base ground textutes, maybe the improved shading and all those tree are going to help, but those green fields wow wow wow. Looking good

    VR vs. TrackIR 5

    I am seeing the same news. Will just echo what I said if you have the money to drop on a new toy and won't feel guilt rift is an amazing experience. You have to have the right attitude and expectation though to continue to enjoy it after the newness wears off. Using a keyboard is extremely frustrating, hotas not so much. It's not going to have the clarity of a monitor and I feel like it washes out the picture, for text you have to learn to look directly at it as the oculus has a walleye effect and blurs at the edges. Overall I'd recommend it those that can drop the cash but just keep the expectation and attitude in check and you can continue to be amazed at what the new technology offers, granted even with the right attitude and expectations you will cuss like a sailor at times at the frustration!
  11. Thanks Chili for the info and feedback as well as putting this together. I overclocked the 3930K to 4.3ghz instead of the 3.2ghz and it's pretty stable passmark score single threaded was: 2361 Fraps now shows Frames: 5483 - Time: 63368ms - Avg: 65.396 - Min: 44 - Max: 91 That's up just over 15 fps avg from no overclock but still well below the mid 80 average for this hardware I think. In steamVR setting I'm using a 1.7 supersampling if I turn it down to 1 I average 88 fps, are we sure everyone is running 1.7 SS? Just making sure before I start chasing frames. Edit * Just did an overclock to 4.7ghz on the cpu using the bios gamer profiles for asus rampage iv, pc was stable through two more runs but avg fps dropped 2 frames over those two test 2017-08-22 18:12:57 - Il-2 Frames: 4337 - Time: 61293ms - Avg: 62.601 - Min: 43 - Max: 91 . Won't be happy until I'm running 86 fps like you guys using these settings
  12. Ran this test on my rift using i7 3930K no oc, gtx 1080ti, 16gb 3333mhz and the settings outlined on the first page. Avg: 48.368 - Min: 45 - Max: 76 My fps is well below that of others with a 1080ti, I think I've got something setup wrong. Anytime an airplane appeared on the screen the fps seemed to stay locked in at 45fps. ctrl num1 did not appear to do anything but I do have asw turned off in steamvr and debug conole of vive.

    VR vs. TrackIR 5

    I think IL2 is good for VR with rift, enjoying it despite the decrease in resolution detail. Of all the flightsims this is the only one that truly feels right in VR. I still play DCS in triple screen with trackir and now il2 in VR and awaiting Kuban. I'd say if you have the money for toys then VR is nice especially with Il2 and a few other titles (but not flight sims), otherwise I'd stick with trackIR for now. When gen2 of VR headsets come out and they increase the FOV and resolution clarity it will be a no brainier then.
  14. Looking very good. I'm coming back to IL2 from the "dark side" due to VR and the BOK map and campaign, very excited by the updates.

    Discussion of Battle of Kuban Pre-Order

    ^^ Thanks I just tried my BOS game on steam and sure enough the spit was there. I now see that it must have used my logon to determine my content. I tried to through 21 pages of people saying I pre-ordered, but agree I could not find this info despite looking. A sticky with the title I just pre-ordered BOK how do I get the content or something similar would have been helpful yes. Thanks again for the help ghost.
