  1. Not really surprised that he considered upgrading his GC.. And that's a hell of an upgrade here !
  2. ? Do you mean you're blind once it's on your head ? Or is this an unguided joke ? (Don't see any condenscending there, but asking because of your rig in signature.. Or is it outdated ?)

    Toying with the idea of VR

    Hehe, I hope I could see what I do preferably !

    Thank you for your input but actually that does matter. This depends on if the HMD flips, or has frontal cameras (and if, can they provide a clear image of what is front of you in the real world), or nothing. As a Microsoft FFB2 user, I do need an access to my keyboard.

    This looks promising ! Still we hear from time to time some guys with more discouraging speaks... Even here in this particular topic ! A positive aspect to me is that I was experiencing some abnormal stutters yet due to [FFB2 + TiR5] combo yet. So getting rid of TiR5 in Il-2 should be a good thing in the end for me, being a user of the "Mother of all joysticks". 😄 By the way, could anyone here explain how he looks to his keyboard while flying with an Odyssey+ on the nose ?

    Toying with the idea of VR

    Hello guys, I'm swimming to join the VR ship right now. Ordered an Odyssey+ @300$ (375 euros with taxes etc because I'm French and Samsung doesn't like european people unfortunately). I know that my GC will be a serious bottleneck, but my plan is to experiment until end of november and grab a new GC for black friday, and I bought it not only for Il-2, but also for racing sim (Assetto Corsa, only classic cars). I hope it will be good enough for "small" and "gentle" environments, f.e. few AI, no MP, low settings..
  7. Won't be of a nice help, but I've heard in a serious review that the Pimax 5K was requiring a GTX 1080 minimum.. Looks to be a demanding HMD.
  8. Plz guys, how with the Pimax 5K can you see your keyboard ? Is there a frontal dedicated camera in it ? Can it slide ? Flip ?
  9. I too would very like to know your thoughts now it's a bit of time you got it. Question : How with the Pimax 5K can you see your keyboard ? Is there a frontal dedicated camera in it ? Can it slide ? Flip ?
  10. But then you can't see enough your keyboard so ?.. 🤨
  11. I read that it provides a "radar" feature and a "window in window", but I'm not sure you can customise the way you're looking at the reality around you. Any Vive Pro user input plz ? Still a Vive Pro pick would be costly : 500 for the HMD itself, + [150x2] for the old generation trackers.. 800 euros ! Not to mention that I'd be well advised to upgrade my GC too, for at least a 1080Ti... 😓
  12. Really the non-Pro does it but the Pro one ?! Damn it. I was lurking at a 500 euros offer for Vive Pro, but those weird guys don't sell the headtracking seperately it seems. That's ridiculous. Does anyone know if Pimax 5K will do the job ? Will it have a front camera ? It doesn't look like by the pictures..
  13. Plz guys, Can someone tell me if it's possible to see our actual environment thanks to the Chaperone technology ? I do need to have some looks at my keyboard, so will I be able to with the Vive Pro ? I read that it provides a sort of immediate obstacles warning, but can it just film what is in front of it via a sort of "push-to-film" button, like a "push-to-talk" button for a headset ? Thx.

    Hype about ME262

    Exactly. I never understood why plenty of historians (maybe "low-grade" ones though) always depicted the (Hitler's) choice to make her a interceptor and bomber as one of the worst strategic decisions, even fancy, that seriously contributed to Germany late war bad situation. I really can't get that. Attacking a B-17/B-29 stream, ok, but pretend to dispute the overall air superiority thanks to the Swalbe, niet ! Beside that, being able to launch bombs on the ground practically without enduring any threat...

    PTO/Korea/ETO... next il2 expansion thread?

    But you don't see thousands of soldiers in Stalingrad yet, neither even transports through the Volga, do you ? Refugees will never be depicted, and maybe even infantry, so.. It's an air warfare sim after all.
