  1. i'd like to have a fix for this too, because I cant plug 3 monitors in my current setup (1 flat monitor + HMD), and it makes it a nuisance for my girlfriend to try and watch when I want to include her in the action
  2. When I zoom in with 5x zoom, I have to tilt my head to actually look at what I was zooming at.. I tried using the ctrl + end and ctrl + pg down to move up and down the view, but i did not see any effect no matter how many times I mashed these keys. any suggestion? What is the difference/purpose of .forSettings and .toPlay file for these settings? I assume one is able to be accessed while in game or something like that, but it would help if a more precise explanation were provided, the same with a lot of your explanations in the OP, I have to read multiple times to understand the concept... So far, I'm finding it easiest to adjust these settings in the cockpit of the bf109. Just going autolevel, look out at the pitot tube and zoom. If I have a double image, adjust convergence as necessary. Seems to also work with the up/down I think...
  3. What is the equivalent setting for changing settings in order to achieve the same effect as w6=1.1?
  4. Hi, is the w6 variable now unused? For example, I seen a post instructing to increase contrast by changing w6 to 1.1, but seems the saturation effects are applied differently now? I guess what I am asking is, how can I achieve the effect of increased contrast similar to w6 = 1.1 with the new user settings system? Cheers
  5. Guys lets remember to keep it on topic and not drag this into a flame war of who has the "correct" style of approaching gameplay.
  6. A player on that server told me I am severely disadvantaging myself by not using the late war planes in that server. So my question is, is there a change to my tactics I can employ to help counter-act this? Or is it simply hopeless for me to try and fly against late war allied planes in say, a 109 G2 or 190 A-3? Should I wait until I get BoBp to even attempt this to avoid frustrations? Thanks 😄 Check #suggestions on the server discord. There is good discussion about spotting there.
  7. yes, if i saw this low hanging fruit in a new patch note it would make me quite happy. seems like a easy effort to reward thing to me.
  8. Bump. This is absolutely imperative to any flight simulator game. Especially when, if not using a head tracking device, you must bind at minimum one entire POV hat to moving your head around the cockpit, which essentially loses you 4 entire bindings without modifiers in place. Of course, you can use external software to fix this, like Joy2Key, but its quite annoying to be in the "zone" and then realize you forgot to boot up Joy2Key in the background.
  9. +1 for this suggestion. it's also a bit ridiculous that we have no way of binding a modifier key without downloading a separate software called joy2key. It should be included as a quality of life feature in the base game, as this is standard in just about every other flight simulator, even war thunder, to allow multiple joystick buttons to be pressed
  10. We stan the Velociraptor. Good luck everyone and thanks for giveaway. I don't have a specific prize I care to win, but I already have BOS.
  11. In steam VR settings, enable display mirror: this will display what you see on your HMD mirrored to your desktop in a windows separate from the native IL-2 Window which displays in two eyes.
  12. Speaking strictly theoretically, SS would help you for reading the gauges I think because it is super sampling the resoultion of the gauge textures. AA would just remove aliasing on edges, and I'm not sure it applies to textures. Of course, my knowledge is limited and I am not an expert. I keep SSAO and HDR off in game and use 2x AA.
  13. Hi lafuneste and thank you for the very helpful mod for VR. here are my zoom setting for ~66mm IPD with HTC VIVE. hopefully this can help someone. [Key1] ; high zoom Key = NO_MODIFIERS VK_DOWN type = toggle ; zoom increase w = 10.0 ; HTC VIVE Settings by squid y6 = 0.44 x7 = -0.0 y7 = -0.30 [Key2] ; medium zoom Key = NO_MODIFIERS VK_UP type = toggle ; zoom increase w = 5.0 ; HTC VIVE Settings by squid y6 = 0.22 x7 = 0.0 y7 = -0.15 thanks, and happy hunting.
