  1. I have setup a flyby view on my Hotas and I can check my six with a quick thumb movement, works just fine. No twisting and no turning.
  2. Was just flying in IL2 and recognized that the VR clarity appeared better than last time out with my Pimax 5K+. Upon exiting I noticed that Seam VR had issued a new Steam VR Beta upgrade to improve VR, in my opinion the new Steam VR Beta Upgrade has definitely made an improved difference.
  3. Meplanes, How about doing a campaign rather than a lot of separate missions that have to be downloaded individually?
  4. Flew the Bodenplatte mission and it was good but would have enjoyed more if there was active planes taxing and taking off.
  5. Yes, I have the flickering in IL2 and also with DCS, so it is most probably related to Steam VR. I do not want to change settings as I have a beautiful picture now and if I start modifying settings it will probably mess up everything. I am not a computer guru and in the past I have changed settings per the forum recommendations and have regretted it.
  6. I fly VR exclusively using a Pimax 5K+ with a 1080Ti GPU. Since 4.001 was posted I have noticed a marked increase in clarity and visibility both inside and outside the cockpit. Targets are visible at longer range and my instruments and printing in the cockpit are near perfect now. I haven't changed any Pitool settings, so it has to be a result of the developers modifications to which I say CONGRATULATIONS, A JOB WELL DONE. Would like to know if other VR users using the Pimax and other HMDs have also notice major improvements in VR..
  7. OF COURSE I can hear you say "That's unrealistic!". Yes. True. This technology did not exist when the planes were originally built and flown and I for one see no justification to implement an unrealistic advantage. The pilots of the era we have chosen to fly in didn't have G-Force indicators so I would suggest you try DCS Modern Warfare.
  8. This will probably draw a lot of disparaging comments, however this is how I practice my shooting. Select a mission having a bunch of friendlys like those offered by Jade Monkey, drop into the rear position of your flight and start shooting them down. The flight will continue to fly straight and level while you blast away however make sure you have unlimited ammo. They just crash and burn while never realizing that there is a traitor in their midst. No need to set up your own special missions and do all sorts of work. After you finish killing them all, just restart your mission and you are back in the continuing good graces of the flight and still a valued team member. LOL
  9. I fully realize that and it is just one reason of many that I stated that these comparison videos must be viewed with some skepticism.
  10. Here is a you tube video showing a side by side through the lens comparison of the Pimax 8KX vs HP Reverb. The users rig looks to be a top of the line which is required to achieve the performance level shown. I realize these things have to be viewed with bit of skepticism as they are too often slewed in one direction or another, however if the PIMAX 8KX is in reality as good as the video shows and then combined with the PIMAX large FOV then it is the best available.
  11. I had the same problem and had to restart the game to get rid of the standing pilot. Only noticed it once but it is definitely a bug
  12. I used the outside view yesterday to find the runway. TIP: turn the P38 right from parked position and then take first taxiway on your left. Goes directly to runway
  13. It may be deemed as unfair but I use the Fly-By view to check my six in VR.
