  1. guys, apologies in advance if this is somehow covered but i can't find a proper answer to this - does it matter what 3090 card I buy? Eg Asus/EVGA/Nvidia Founder's edition? I do understand that some are 'pre' overclocked (and hence better, if CPU is not a limiting factor) and from what I'm reading EVGA sounds good quality-wise. For what it matters, I have an Asus motherboard and a 9900k overclocked to 5GHz (hopefully may get it to go to 5.1 or 5.2). Use case is VR, have Reverb G2. Any tips appreciated, apologies if this is a noob question!
  2. guys, sorry for the slight hijack of the thread, but, still 9900K relevant: given Il-2 BoX only uses one core, is there any sense (for temperature reasons) to only overclock one core (currently have all cores at 5.2ghz on a test basis, had no issue with 5ghz so far)? Or does this not make any sense/would slow down the game?
  3. thanks both - have opencomposite, didn't know about oculus tray having this function, will check out.
  4. thanks, will check out, saw something on their page (not 100% sure, maybe about direct support).
  5. hi guys what are you using to measure VR performance? I remember seeing a video somewhere with an overlay showing FPS, GPU speeds/temps, CPU speeds/temps. would be good to measure properly before trying to fix issues (system as below).
  6. very cool! I unashamedly confess this is asking for the hand when getting a finger, but, any chance the nick of the person speaking will or can be displayed? ie similar to player chat or technochat messages? reason for asking is that AFAIK there is no overlay style solution for VR (eg TS3 works in pancake mode with such an overlay but not VR).
  7. Quick question, what are the changes between 2.2 and 2.3? Can't find a change log.
  8. Daft question - but - if I have Steam, then if I buy collector planes in the Il-2 store and not Steam, then how/when can they be used in Steam or is this somehow automatic? If not, then :( - bought some but probably can't cancel or resell? :(
  9. Hi all, I am a returning pilot from the original Il-2 series looking for a mature/easy-going group to join, just am getting familiarized again with flying, this time with my new set-up (VR). I mostly have time on Fridays/Saturdays after 2100 CET or so, mostly fly allied. Anyone recruiting?
  10. Hi All - a quick question - is there any way to zoom into the briefing map? I ask as the resolution isn't the best. Is the only way simply the standard 5x zoom? Just find it quite difficult to spot (for example) the rivers and their flow whilst flying. Have an Oculus Rift S.
  11. Dear All, Quick q - I have the OpenComposite system wide install, i.e. launch the exe, make sure the IL2 app is marked to be used with OpenComposite not Steam VR. What is the best way of then launching IL2? I understand this should be through the Oculus store. I do that, but then, Steam launches. How should this be done? Thanks for any tips!
  12. Dear All I have a Virpil WarBRD base that I use with an extension. It's currently deskmounted, but, would like to have a center mount on my seat. I don't have enough space at home for a pit (Obutto, MonsterTech, etc) so my only choice right now is to have this mounted to my seat. Is anyone aware of any solutions either for just the mount or for a seat (ideally with cut-out in the center) plus the mount? Many thanks in advance for any replies!
  13. hi guys, after a long time my dream has come true and I finally have a Virpil cockpit with Monstertech mounts. I've figured out how to mount bass shakers on the joystick (done) and throttle (will follow, but should be easy enough using the t-slot system and this part from Monstertech: https://www.monstertech.de/en/product/bass-shaker-plate/), but would also like to mount them on the ace-1 rudder pedals. I was thinking I would probably need to unscrew one (best probably two, the innermost ones looking from the side of the pedals that don't face me) of the central screws and mou
  14. Hi guys, I'm hoping to finally get up and running with my Buttkicker Gamer 2, with a separate sound card just for it. Can someone tell me please how to set it up in Win10? I mean vibrations etc work fine, but how do I get normal sound from my other sound card? What set-up do you use (assuming you have a dedicated sound card, which I understood to be the 'better' option, instead of using the Y cable and just one sound card?) either in Win10 or within Il2 BoS, to have vibrations through the Buttkicker and normal sound (engine, guns, voice comms) through headphones/speakers? Any brief guidan
  15. Sorry one more question. What settings do you use on the BK2? Apologies don't have it yet so don't know if there are any ;)
