  1. How does one get acrobatic smoke to show up? I see the key binding and it is for about 4 things but the assignment has no way to distinguish between what event. I have it set to my key 3 but no matter what I do I can not get any smoke to appear, much less any particular color.
  2. For those who get on during the week days and often find only a few if any people online I suggest looking for a fight in section1005 area and specifically between the twin ponds (Lake Duce) and the single pond(Lake Uno) in the no mans land of mud. [6:22 PM] I typically fly after 7 PM Eastern USA time. And don't forget about the Thursday night fly in.
  3. I remember flying European Air War. Offline I would be part of a fighter escort to a bunch of B-17 bombers. It was a lot of fun trying to keep those German fighters off the B-17s. I had to learn just what to do to fend off the Germans but still keep up with the bombers. I suspect trying to do any such thing to get the amount of people to just fly the fighters would be difficult. But I am thinking that OFF LINE play would be fun. Maybe online play like this is just not able to be done now. But maybe off line could be done.
  4. But after load does a game play any better? I am thinking maybe it would help in performance and help reduce stutters.
  5. I think I found the answer. Looks like you can put a link in the old folder and direct it to a different drive and folder. Copy programs to a new drive Without having to re-install programs. See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RO4qMi_SyJI
  6. I have my WINDOWS OS on an SSD seta drive now. My games like IL-2 BOS and DCS are all on a spinning platter. I just bought an NVMe M.2 drive and have it installed. It is 500GB. I don't think it will make much of a difference to clone the SSD over to the M.2, particularly the Windows OS. But other than load time would having the games on the M.2 make a real difference in performance. I do use Oculus Rift s. I am hoping having it and the games on the M.2. would be a far better than leaving them installed on the platter. That said I suspect I can just copy the folders to the new M2 drive. But in general, do I need to reinstall software to the new drive or can I just copy folders.
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.,
  10. 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?
  11. 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
  12. I plan on going the vr route or at least some ultra high monitor with the high refresh rate.
