    Kayaking as much as possible, SIM's, like WarThunder and now IL2 BOS/BOM/COD
    I run the game on a MSI - GT72 2QE - Prosessor Intel® Core™ i7-4720HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2601 Mhz, 4 core, 8 logic prosessors - (RAM) 16,0 GB - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M

  1. Have you been able to compare it with the TS Warthog? I had a Saitek x52 pro, I liked it a lot, and found it good ergonomically. I broke it after 1,5 year and went over to Warthog. It's way more presice in axis than the X52 were, not as good ergonomic but the quality of the axis are in another League than the Saitek. It really helped improving my flying.
  2. ​I run the game on a MSI - GT72 2QE - Prosessor Intel® Core i7-4720HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2601 Mhz, 4 core, 8 logic prosessors - (RAM) 16,0 GB - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M - Vsync off, Limiter off - and gets at the top 60+ FPS and drops rapidly as described by others. Until I can get more out of it I won't play the game as much as I would like, I'a bit puzzled by this, my rather good computer are turned into a potato. I easily Reach over 100 FPS in Warthunder and appr. 100 in DCS, it can drop Down towards 60. I will still support the game and further Development, also by preorder BOK.
  3. I fully support all the positive said about the pedals, I've had mine since dec. 15 - I can't praise them high enogh. Absolutely worth every penny, absolutely worth waiting for - and I expect them to be my last pedals....
  4. To me it seems that the dev's are defending their fort because they don't have time (it's not put on the list of present tasks) to go back and do changes in the model for automated calculations when this shows to be wrong / inaccurate. Jason tells it in this answer: Because they apparently don't agree or have time to work on previous planes. http://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/18341-developer-diary-part-108-discussion/?p=287425 My interpretations are: It's not about the 190 alone - it's about some core elements of the automated calculations which gives the output - the different planes FM's or performances. To admit this it can have two implications: 1. We admit that our FM system are wrong - which can be destructive to a "best Sim image". 2. It's a lot of work to be done - we don't have time and resources to do it - so we depress any implications for the need for it.
  5. ....and I forgot the CAF (Cat Approval Factor), it's low too. My 15 year old female cat cant stand it when I mount my cockpit.... Is this a gender thing?
  6. Sim's has extremely low WAF (Wife Approval Factor)
  7. The Murmansk map will be exiting for me. I made service in the Norwegian army at the time USSR went into Afghanistan, so I knew the area on the Norwegian side well (I live in the other end of Norway). I've been almost all over the Norwegian side of this map - by foot/skee and by "Volvo feltvogn" (Volvo Jeep) and "Bandvogn" (Belt driven wagon). I remember a survival exercise in Pasvik - The Norway - Russian borderline - we were carrying "bear-shot's" to protect ourselves if we were attacked by them. I will be exited to fly over it again ;-)
  8. Thanks for answer. I use the broken X 52 as a "button box" already (nice expression, I'll use that). To let some of the rotary's on the throttle unit work as a trim button (not an axis) one has to program it in the software, which I've done. Just now I have all three trim settings on my left hand. This is a habit I have from other games, my first approach is to do the same in BOS until it proves necessary to "re-program" my more or less automated actions. I have "a problem" with the two stage trigger on the Warthog. it fires mg in the first step and cannons in the second. I wanted it to fire both in the second. It seems to give me a halt in firing MG's when moving from stage 1 to stage 2 and the back again. This can make me to miss because of this halt in my bursts. I'm used to create these halts my self and not by the trigger mechanics. The trigger on this stick is the only element I don't like, one has to push it 100% to the bottom to make stage 2 work. I would prefer the controller to "connect" in stage 2 earlier in the travel than it do. (I know the mechanisms on the real planes were of totally other proportions than a modern stick.) I liked the ergonomic design on the Saitek stick better than the Warthog, the Warthog is far better axis wise in my opinion, which is important. It's pro's and con's (as usual I guess). The solution may be as simple as: I will have to get used to another mechanism, and learn to use it. I'll look into it, thanks for advice ;-)
  9. I'm thinking a lot strange thoughts, I have too long days (I'm not world champion in sleeping either) ;-) At the moment it could be handy with some guidance in the graphical area. I have a straight forward out of the box setup on my rig. The contrast isn't even close to my expectations. The setup of stick and flying the Fw has to go in it's own path and I need time to familiarize in it. I think I have most of the stick settings are in place, I haven't tried the setup in other planes yet to check if it works. Any tips for typical traps I should look for in that department? Axis'es are a matter of personal taste, I've always liked'em tight (not any filthy associations now....), I guess I will adjust these for a good while. To be able to fly in expert mode is there anywhere a minimum is described? Do people change profiles on their sticks and other gear when they fly different planes, or will one set up fit all? Some of the functions are best on the keyboard, any tips on which? I guess this will be convenient for engine management twin engine's planes. I'm normally a fighter head... To be able to orientate fast on the keyboard, I bought me the RGB keyboard, marking important parts of it or single keys with colors - that's part of the conceptual problem. How long is it to Christmas? (joking)
  10. Was this request for some assistance a bit too cocky? I'm not cocky at all. My intention with the posting were to a bit funny and sarcastic on my own behalf. I have a growing suspicious that I didn't succeed in that. Some of my problems with the "burn out thing" is that I don'w always remember the small and tiny thing from just or yesterday, like "where did I see that?". It's very handy for me to have it stored one place, like in this topic or thread. I use money on sim gear at the moment, to try to compensate for the problems I have. I don't use money on other things at all at the moment, I have even stopped smoking cigarettes (which is very expensive where I live). This isn't cocky at all. I'm not trying to be too personal either, I like to be straight forward and I thought it would be fair to try to explain something in here about it. To help me in remembering stuff, I started to use Evernote after I got ill, or to be more precise, I just re-discovered that I had started to use it some 1,5 years ago. Now I use it actively to store downloaded files, links to websites, to forum postings (when I remember to do so). I can really recommend it, the program "grows" as you use it. The setup process in BOS is slow because of my memory trouble and some due to some perceptual problems, which is more important when flying - like situation awareness. My language capacity has been set back too, finding words when I need them, write correct, grammar - it's not funny, but I manage, I don't have any options either. I am improving, its a slow process. I will be back to my old self one day. You will see a of me in the forum and soon "up there", you're all warned This should have happened to me some 10 years ago when it was more trendy And why the heck can't I edit my own OP?
  11. I know I will have a lot of good time "in here" for the future. This seems to be the perfect place to combine "having fun" and bury one self into details when trying to understand the bird one flies (or think I want to fly, it's a bit early to be that certain). I like what I see under this topic as a newcomer.
  12. This is basically a re-post from another topic where I commented on one of Ze_Hairy's Fw. videos. I kind of liked some of my formulations, so I decided to publish it once more. There's a lot tweaking and fiddling around with all kind of settings. I realize this: When I broke my Saitek X52 pro stick a while ago (not been able to glue it yet) and bought me a Warthog stick unit and kept the Saitek throttle and stick units (I use some of the buttons on the base, more buttons, more fun). I didn't make it particular easier to get my acts together so to speak. The devil is buried in the details is a saying. I don't have two graveyards to dig in now (the game, my Saitek package (gear and software)), but tree (the game, my Saitek package and the Thrustmaster package). Well, that's me in a nutshell . I'm almost there where I've found out how to fix the Saitek stuff according to my liking's, the warthog is reasonable axis wise, the only missing is a two stage trigger, which will involve fiddling with the Target software i guess. I have started to fly offline, been into one game one "one or another server", getting blown out of the sky and crashed to the ground. I managed to take off in the Anton at first attempt, even land it without "nose-breaking" and I kept it on the runway until it stopped, somewhat not "100% on the center line", more close to the yellow line - if there were any. What the heck, it was winter conditions, I couldn't see them lines. I'm satisfied I will take advice if anyone more familiar with my gear in this environment can point out for me where to find help and wise tip's. I have this gear: Saitek X-52 pro with broken stick mounted so I can use the buttons on the base, and I'm planning a sort of support or prosthesis for the stick so I can use some of the buttons on it. http://www.saitek.com/uk/prod/x52pro.html Thrustmaster Warthog stick unit. http://www.thrustmaster.com/en_UK/products/hotas-warthog-flight-stick Saitek pro quadrant http://www.saitek.com/uk/prod/quad.html Saitek pro fighter rudder pedals http://www.saitek.com/uk/prod/compedals.html Track Ir pro SW 5.2.200 Corsair K70 gaming keyboard, my newest toy (lots of color flash if one likes it, I use it to see important keys when I'm flying - and I hope I can program some keys to do "stuff" for me) I can see out of vid's the there can be a lot to gain in the graphic department. I have a reasonable computer I believe - MSI GT72 17.3" GeForce GTX980M 4GB, Core i7-4720HQ, 16GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 1TB HDD, Win 8.1 hooked up to a BenQ 27'' 144 hmz sreen. It gives me +/- 60 fps, I haven't bench-marked it yet in BOS. I have seen something on add on's, I would be very happy if someone could aid me to where I can find useful info and guidance. I've been more or less on a sick leave for two years, "burn out syndrome" - boring as hell but I'm slowly improving. My memory, energy and perception are not according to what I like, that's life. It could be worse if I woke up a morning - dead. I have a lot time to put into fiddling with "things" so to speak. I'm not mentioning this to seek any sympathy, I'm just trying to motivate someone to put me on the right track / track's (slick as any) Humor is invented - Thank You
  13. Well, I have finally taken the step into BOS with my new rig... There's a lot tweaking and fiddling around with all kind of setting. I realize this: When I broke my Saitek X52 pro stick a while ago (not been able to glue it yet) and bought me a Warthog stick unit and kept the Saitek throttle and stick units (I use some of the buttons on the base, more buttons, more fun).

What the heck, it was winter conditions, I couldn't see them lines. I'm satisfied So, in a lifetime or tree, I hope to be where You are in defensive flying Hairy, and shooting too of course.
