  1. I never doubted that the wait would be worthwhile, but gentlemen, you have surpassed all expectation - a veritable tour de force of how a flight sim should be. Just amazing!
  2. Under scrutiny, on a 42 inch 3840 x 2160 4K screen, the detail is nothing short of superb - You boys continue to torture us. Tremendous work!!!
  3. Disagree - we've all seen the footage of what cannon shells can do to tail and control surfaces of B17's for example - and who's to say how long the Spit in question would keep on flying? I personally think the damage looks three dimensional and realistic - well done TF.
  4. I have Pimax 5k+ and using FennisWolf settings the current Great Battles is the best performance and best graphics I have ever experienced. I personally never used the zoom function very much, but the new zoom is very extreme - it works ok if you close one eye, but nevertheless is a bit disorientating. On balance it is better than it was. Framerates circa 50-60 Windows 10, Nvidia RTX 2080Ti, i7 6700K, 16GB RAM
  5. Thankyou - your sticky advice was very helpful and detailed - I have installed 254a as you described - performance and resolution are much better with your settings. regards Squash
  6. Fix for the awful screen dimming issue - Reinstall pitool 144, in which the screen backlight setting has not been removed - select "High" in the backlight setting, then go back to pitool 259 - it works!!! Discussion here https://community.openmr.ai/t/pitool-1-0-1-259-discussion-split-from-tracking-issues-april-2020-thread/28040/26 Do you have a link to 254a? I now can't find where to get old versions of pitool
  7. Now that's what I call meticulous work! You boys are torturing us 😃
  8. Truly superb - and you will have something that none of the other main combat flight sims have - genuinely excited by the prospect - many thanks!!!!!
  9. A veritable cornucopia - many thanks Pattle and the team
  10. I see there are now 7 pages of comment in the above forum, following Nick Greys' pledge to make a WWII version of the Marianas map
  11. A great improvement with both FXAA and SMAA. Thanks again for your good work
  12. It's becoming clear that the Tomahawk, Macchi and, in particular, the Martlet as completely new types, are benchmarks in the evolution of COD. To the developers - Bravo - this is really good work.
  13. I know this phrase is used a lot, but that does look photo-realistic - great work
  14. It's a while since I used the Pimax FFR (Fixed Foveated Rendering), but it definitely used to work and gave a very sharp image, although it was not to my liking as it seemed to defeat the point of the wide field of view and the distortion outside of the foveated render area was somewhat immersion sapping. Maybe the Steam VR update has something to do with it no longer working. Since the Steam update, I get a hideous psychedelic flickering and a blue IL2 name-box on the mission loading screen, though everything else seems ok. I would be interested to hear what kind of performance other Pimax users are getting. With the Pimax 5K-Plus, using an RTX 2080Ti and Core i7-6700K, I personally cannot get beyond about 38 to 48 fps (very rarely 50fps), Significant settings are; Smart-Smoothing = On (on or off - doesn't make much difference?) Field of View = "Normal" Render Quality = 2 (very little improvement in fps at 1.5) Gameplay at these settings is quite smooth, though spotting aircraft at more than a couple of kilometres is very difficult unless labels are used. Even with the current shortcomings of VR, it is hard to go back to using a monitor for gameplay. With Pimax and some other contempory headsets now being considered as 2nd generation, it makes me look forward in slight amazement to what the next generation of VR headsets will be like.
