  1. So now that I have Oculus Rift I find it very hard to turn around enough to really get a good look behind me. I suspect that if far more realistic. I know I can't look behind me when I am driving my car like I can using TrackIR in a game. So, it seems the best I can to is check my 4 and 8 and do some S curving to see if anybody is really behind me. Is that about the best way to 'check 6' or do I have it all wrong?
  2. When I am in VR and in a plane my virtual person is two close to the instruments/windshield. is there a good way to solve that? When I use TrackIR, I was able to save a head position that was to my liking which was a bit high and further away from the instruments. I can try to do the same with using Oculus Rift. But I wonder if it is better to move the sensors instead.
  3. got it figured out. Using the Steam VR was the key but still some detailed steps missing. I hope to write a set of instructions and share it.,
  4. Just bought Occulus Rift (1st one to come out?) and I am trying to get it to work with IL-2 BoS. I've made the needed selections in IL-2 but can't figure out how to get the game to be in Occulus. I read that one has to use 'Steam VR is needed to run Il2 in VR '. Is that still true?
  5. I am willing to buy more ram but I don't want to spend around $800. I am willing to spend $300 for a video card and another $300 to $400 on a VR head set. So, would this card work well enough? Gigabyte Windforce GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Overclocked 6GB GDDR6 Dual-Fan PCIe Video Card
  6. I plan on going the vr route or at least some ultra high monitor with the high refresh rate.
  7. I need a little advice. I am ready to buy a new video card but want to get one that will not be chocked by the CPU or motherboard. I also don't want to pay top dollar to just get like 3% better than a card that is significantly cheaper. Here is what I have. Your recommendations? Operating System Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1 CPU Intel Core i5 4690K @ 3.50GHz 44 °C Haswell 22nm Technology RAM 8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 799MHz (9-9-9-24) Motherboard ASRock Z97 Pro4 (CPUSocket) 26 °C Graphics SyncMaster (1920x1080@60Hz) SyncMaster (1920x1080@59Hz) 2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti (EVGA) 25 °C Storage 111GB Samsung SSD 850 EVO 120G SCSI Disk Device (SSD) 39 °C 298GB SAMSUNG HD321KJ SCSI Disk Device (SATA) 38 °C Optical Drives TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-224DB SCSI CdRom Device Audio NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM)
  8. Multiplayer really reveries. Some servers you will have objectives in and if you want to live very long you better fly with some buddies so you don't get jumped. The lone flier can spend some time not finding a fight only to be killed before he has a chance to fight. Then you have quick furballs will lots of folk. But that can be rather difficult to really learn how to do better. And again, you better be flying with some buddies. Then you have training servers with usually just a few people doing one on one dual. You can have plenty of fun, not get shot down instantly and have someone much better than yourself try to teach you the ropes. I do a fair amount of this in the 72AG training server.
  9. Maybe you can get some students studying AI at universities to help improve it in this game. Great opportunity for GB and students.
  10. When : Sunday, the 3rd March 2019 Time : 19:00 to 02:00 Greenwich Mean Time 20:00 to 03:00 Central European Time 13:00 to 20:00 Central Time US / Canadian Where : Jasta 5 Flying Circus Dogfight Server Type : 6 Hour long, informal, mass dogfight (drop in & drop out anytime) Furball. Entrance : Everyone welcome, just fly and have fun. Again a very big thanks to All the members of Jasta 5 for allowing us hold the FCF event on their server, this Sunday and thanks for a great server. This event will be held every Sunday from 19:00 to 02:00 GMT.
  11. I found that while playing online with people only on text chat that a nice short pronounceable name is a good thing. And that means something easy to type. That often fits nicely with pilot call signs. see http://www.f-16.net/callsigns-A.html And to generate one https://topaces.com/history-of-the-call-sign/
  12. I would think improving the AI would be a great opportunity for Russian students at university to improve AI skills in general. The applications from a game like this to real world situations with drones and such seems to somebody who actually knows nothing about it to be a no brainer.
  13. Is there a way of adjusting the reflector sight after raising or lowering the pilot seat. I ask because after raising the pilot seat the reflector sight is mis-aligned.
  14. Testing things out I found that if one has TrackIR on then you can only have "Change pilot head control method" (F9 default) set to give you 'centered quick view' which means you have to keep the snap key pressed to keep at that view. However, if you turn TrackIR off then when pressing F9 it will cycle you through several view, one of which will allow you not to have to keep the snap key pressed. I find this disappointing as I wanted to switch between TrackIR view and a snap key view without having to keep the snap key continually pressed. So, I have another question for another post.
