  1. I can guarantee they would sell at least one extra copy if this game had VR support. Without it however, I would not even buy it for $10.
  2. Replays look better on a monitor in 4K and maxed out graphics. I cannot fly on it anymore.
  3. VR-DriftaholiC is right. I use two cfg files to have different level of details - everything maxed for a monitor and mid-high settings for VR.
  4. I keep two copies of steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\startup.cfg and swap them with a .bat file.
  5. You should not have bought ultrawide screen for 3D gaming. You will always have a fish eye effect in any game. Only multi-screen setups and a game that supports separate rendering per screen will give you a proper wide view with correct geometry across the whole field of view. AFAIK in flight simulators only X-Plane supports it, maybe DCS too but not sure. Many racing sims support separate rendering.
  6. Turn off cockpit limitations in difficulty settings. Don't remember how this option is called exactly.
  7. Not yet. I only put the hardware together on Monday and overclocked it to 5GHz yesterday. I will leave it for a week or two to check how stable the system is and then I will try to add extra Hz.
  8. Motherboard: ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO CPU: 9700K CPU Freq: 5.0 Ghz L3 cache: 12 MB RAM type: DDR4 RAM size: 32 GB RAM Freq: 3200 MHz RAM Latency: 16 GPU: 2080Ti STMark: 3015 2019-12-17 22:05:16 - Il-2 4.003 Frames: 26487 - Time: 180000ms - Avg: 147.150 - Min: 102 - Max: 239 All settings as per OP. System upgraded yesterday and fresh Windows 10.
  9. But why? This game does not simulate random faults so what's the point of checking temps, pressure, fluids every 10sec? Unless you were damaged by enemy fire or flying with closed radiators nothing wrong will happen to your plane.
  10. Completely useless. I bought Reverb last week and returned it after 3 days mainly because I could not make it working with my 65mm IPD. Also sweet spot was tiny and tracking in dark room was terrible.
  11. I have 6700k@4.5GHz plus 2080 Ti and IL2 was playable in Reverb on balanced settings, you should be fine with Index. You won't have 90fps all the time, though. Don't know if any hardware will allow that. I returned Reverb for other reasons and planning to buy Index now.
  12. Whichever headset to choose you will need to use migoto's zoom mod anyway.
  13. It won't have VR support at the beginning and who knows how long it gonna take to implement it. Devs never planned it and only changed their mind a few months ago. Also I am not fan of 3D objects generated from photos. It looks good from high altitude but on the ground level it won't be much better than Google Earth.
  14. I have completely different experience. DCS looks and works much better in VR. The virtual world in IL2 is lifeless comparing to DCS and its AI traffic. Persian Gulf map is a masterpiece. I love flying there in Huey.
  15. I bought it about 6 months ago mainly to use it in DCS. It does the job much better than the original one.
  16. 90fps everywhere or you are one of those who don't use fps meter but feel it's smooth?
  17. You mean to get rid of the propeller. Thanks. If I wanted to play jets I'd play DCS.
  18. Head movement limitations were very small in all other planes but it was fixed some months ago. Flying Bf-109 in VR was a nightmare. Hopefully devs will fix Ju88 too.
  19. What model exactly? I am planning to buy 9700k soon and OC it to 5.0GHz at least.
  20. It's max 30min from Charing Cross to Colindale. Bus 303 (the best number for a bus going to RAF museum) goes to the front door but also visits all the neighbourhoods in 5mil radius before it gets you to the museum. It's literally quicker to walk from the station than taking a bus.
  21. This might be the case. I used to have it set for max perf. in global settings, but read somewhere I should not do it because GPU runs at 100% all the time, even when idle. So I set it to balance and set max perf in program settings only for BoS.
  22. Your GPU is pretty much the same as mine and we both have 6700k, although mine is OC'ed to 4.5GHz. You should be able to get 4.5Ghz from your CPU, even on air cooling. These are mine settings for VR: They won't give me 90fps in every situation but it's enough for less complex missions. PS. Some say you can get smoother experience if you convince yourself that what you see is fine. You even will be able to crank your settings up to ULTRA and still enjoy it. Only that bloody ghosting...
  23. As I said nothing was running in the background. In task manager only il2.exe process was using CPU above 1%.
  24. Every time I open this game I have different fps. Yesterday after the update, I started the game and was surprised to see 90fps in VR on the same graphics settings I always use. It was late already so could not test it longer. Today morning I opened the same mission and fps are sh.t again!!! I checked the system, everything was as yesterday, no extra programs running in the background. I enabled Rivatunner, started the game and I see this https://imgur.com/fqpaRoM. Barely 60-70fps, GPU usage 70-80% and CPU 30-40%. Why this game does not use all resources? A few ours later I started BoX again. The same mission "Patrol over Krymskaya" from BoK. Looked at the fps meter and boom! Stable 90fps and GPU usage 90%, CPU also a bit more than before https://imgur.com/qxFk07I. Why is this happening?
