    Flying circus and Rise of flight

    No doubt about it.

    Engine sounds got quieter.

    That would be sweet!
  3. Have flown several missions into my Spit Kuban Career, has not happened on my end.

    No discount for ROF longtime pilot

    Just to clarify, you are looking in your profile on the ROF website and not this one right?
  6. Welcome aboard! As far as VR - if you are really interested, just do it! I got VR in Jan of 2017, have not run any game on my monitor since. Be aware it can be pretty demanding ( expect about half the fps of monitor) and resolution currently is not great, but the immersion is absolutely incredible. First time you are actually sitting in a full size plane looking at that large prop spinning in front of you and the world all around you everywhere you look, is quite exhilarating.

    Kuban missions

    Interesting, I was not aware of this either. Having lot of fun in Career mode but may check some of those out, thanks.
  8. Hey gang, So I have just come to the end of my second Spit Kuban Career with 57th GIAP. I am presented with a couple of options - one click finish and the Career is done (what I did in my first full Career), the second option to request a transfer to another unit to continue. First I assume this would be another unit flying planes other than the Spit? And how does one request a transfer? I have looked through the Career menu and am not seeing how to do this? Probably missing something really simple here - any help greatly appreciated.

    Engine sounds seem to be better to me since the Hotfix. Also Spit engine sound when Boost engaged is restored to the way it used to be now, for a long while could not tell any difference in sound when Boost was engaged.
  10. 1CGS guys: Just had a go in my Spit Kuban Career since this latest hotfix, so pleased to hear the engine Spit sound is corrected now to reflect when Boost is engaged. I am so pleased that is back to the way it used to be, thank you so much! Dang after flying in FC the last three days, kind of felt like superman there in my Spit. For a short time anyway...

    oculus home necessary?

    Yeah that is Home 1 ( Classic ). Introduction with short video for Rift Core 2.0 and Dash: https://www.oculus.com/blog/introducing-rift-core/ You can read more about Rift Core 2.0 and Dash here: https://support.oculus.com/1702745539746285/ It is a pretty cool feature, obviously still in Beta so one needs to opt in for it. I personally like it , have my Home all decorated up and everything. Had a lot of fun doing so. You also earn items as you go by time spent in Oculus Home. Heck from what I understand you can even pull items out of Dash and pin them into a game. I have not really delved much into doing so, but several guys over on the Oculus forums talk how much fun that is. Think Kneeboard. Or really about anything. Whilst combat flight sims will always be my first love, I do enjoy my Rift for a lot of things. I like to think of myself as kind of diverse lol. Just limited in knowledge.

    You did set to "Run as Administrator" right? I have not been on Home 1 in several months.

    oculus home necessary?

    Interesting I had read it was still possible in Home 1.

    oculus home necessary?

    Oculus updates without entering Home, no way around it - though there is still option not to opt in to RiftCore 2.0. ( Home 2) Are you by chance running Home 1? I believe it still works with that, but not Home 2 / Riftcore. One can still revert back to Home 1 as well afaik.

    You shouldn't have to have Steam pop up either way you run it, from within Oculus Home or from your desktop shortcut. Only Steam VR which should launch automatically. At least that is the way it works on my end. ( I do not have a Steam key for BoS).
