  1. How would you know if counts as a kill for AI ? If you talk about multiplayer, it might be a different way of working. But I think even between human players only, if the aircraft isn't severely damaged and the pilot is alive, then no kill is credited. (I didn't play since a long time, so it's a "my 2 cents").. Hi, do you mean there is no retro-compatibility over a too long time for our old career ?
  2. Just a quick thank you guys for these informations as I wasn't aware of this specific stuff. It's not cheap, but it might save my VR experience. Take care of yourselves all !
  3. Thank you ! I have some read now. Why don't people more talk about that ? Isn't it that essential ? How do you guys chek your on-keyboard commands ? 🤨
  4. Does it work for an O+ ? I read only about Index..
  5. I still didn't really get into VR even if I bought an Odyssey+, I really don't understand why the manufacturers don't provide a front camera in order to make us able to see what is beyond our VR headset by pushing a button or something, like a "Push-to-see" concept.. Can anybody explain me where I'm skidding from common sense ?
  6. Then you still have a pretty alienistic PC.. Maybe it helps a lot to figure it out ? Why didn't anybody bounce on that com ??! It looks very promising on a single experience. Several years I didn't fire BoX now and I bought a Odyssey + VR in the meantime (still didn't try it) but I'd like to have a look on your work around suggestion for 2D. On the problem itself, if we try to sum up all that ****ing problem which lasts since years now : # Plenty of people using FFB (Microsoft Sidewinder FFB2 mainly) + TrackIR (5 mainly) are reporting abnormal stuttering since years. BUT : # Some people are experiencing the same only with Tir. # Some people are experiencing the same only with FFB (?). # Some people have no problem at all. # Some people are experiencing the same problem in other titles (DCS). Most people report this works like a charm in this very DCS. # Devs denied the problem for a long time (was hardware related, settings related, etc), then provided a few tips to improve the things a bit. # Some people provided some work arounds but there hadn't been a lot of people adding their positive experience by trying it. # Some people unfortunately just left the game... Do you guys see anything in that desert ?
  7. Wow, I didn't try it yet (I had bought ACC only to support Kunos, I'm not interested in modern cars at all) but what you say puts an end on such a test.. Though Kunos guys are good developpers I'd say... But with ACC they were grabbing too much of a modern technology maybe ?
  8. Quite scary.. I'm a little dubitative about all those nVidia softawares but here... Won't try that for a while, sure.
  9. This post only to say this. A big thank you. I didn't launch Il-2 for a very long time due to various reasons, but I wanted to tell you devs (I know you know it but, heh, not bad to hear it again) that even for people like me, who are very irregular in their Il-2 practice, your famous job is unique and even writes history itself : your Il-2 GB series and so on will last for loooong years I hope, because it's worth it. Unlike rest of video game industry. It's a gem. I love your loving for details, realism, authenticity. I love your way of true communication, no BS, no unrealistic promises, but regular reviews. I love your deep work, but also the regularity of the improvements, of the new implementations. I love your design, creative style. I love your business/prices system, realistic enough but still affordable to us. You're even able to question yourselves, to listen to community. Anyway, I love your job. And even if I don't tell it often, I wanted to tell you today : Thank you. #And I didn't even DLed the last Bodenplatte patch.. PS : I hope this post will not be misplaced in any way, feel free to handle it how it should be if necessary of course.
  10. I'm in the same situation as you apart from that I did buy my VR stuff yet. Only spent a few hours with it so far, mainly because my glasses were too big and the Samsung Odyssey+ isn't know to be the most comfortable VR headset, but also because I'm still not ready about my GC, which I think I will update soon now. Bought VR about 5 months ago. It's a overall a very nice VR for its competitive price. And you can upgrade the comfort. Didn't play Il-2 for about 1,5 or 2 years now (!) I miss it sooooo much. And in VR it will be a blast for sure. I didn't even try. I will need pleeeeenty of advices too. Reading the forums isn't an easy thing as the guys speak a acronym-based language I most of the time have no idea about. 😄 Sometimes it's quite like trying to listen to a Zergs' conversation. *Later you prolly will be very interested in the Migoto's mod, very precious* My only advice would be not to deal with an old GC like me, as it will be harder not to experiment sickness due to low FPS. (though again, I didn't try with Il-2, only Assetto Corsa till now). Black Friday I'm looking at you.
  11. Yeah I see what you mean : They look super-modern... for WWI ! 😂 Still I like them for that also. But I much prefer the Dewoitine D.520, Arsenal VG.33 and Lioré&Olivier LéO.451...
  12. I have no knowledge about french pilots/crews who did fight for germans, if you have some informations/sources I'd be happy to learn more. To me there were only french pilots/crews who didn't leave Vichy regime (plenty of those of course) and therefore were working for Vichy but not for the germans. Then when germans invaded the free zone of Vichy regime, maybe some did that ? But if you talk about north Africa and so on it was another story : Vichy regime had to be considered as a neutral, post-defeated country, and so, even if I'm glad that the Allies did what had to be done, it was a violation of the disputable legitimacy of it. There sits all the complexity of such a situation. But french pilots/crews, at that very specific time, weren't fighting for the germans, they were fighting against anyone willing to take the control of their country's colonies. Here I'm not 100% sure you're still talking about air warfare, but I didn't say that. I just said the germans had the best fighter worlwide available in combat at that time. Then IMO there were 2 real counterparts about to come, the D.520 and the Spit. But the former came late and the latter entered production that late and was in a so low number that it didn't fight above french territory during BoF because british didn't want to take part of the BoF with their gem (apart from some covering the Dunkirk Dynamo operation I believe ?) What can mostly be said is that the french pilots/crews were used in a very bad way by their commanders. That and numerous problems that french didn't manage to deal with. Still they performed quite well, even if the "1000 kills myth" is a... myth, they did lowered the german potential quite a bit. But I agree that the MS.406 wasn't that bad comparing in the 109, still it was fairly inferior. Because they were in the same boat, facing a tremendous force. Then we agree overall.
  13. Really, what's the point of such a disrespectful joke towards the french/belgian/dutch crews who have been lawndarted and sacrificed against the german Flak by their commanders, fought 6 weeks against experienced pilots riding the best fighter available at that time over some demoralized invaded countries ? Then if you really talk about the french planes that have been requisitionned after the BoF/Benelux, what's the point when we're talking about BoF ?
