  1. Double layers of clouds in VR is absolutely magical
  2. But it launches steamVR or opencomposite to run IL2 yes?
  3. You know F & J have notches/bumps on them from that very reason? Seems like a waste of grip tape πŸ˜„
  4. Stand alone does not work with oculus api/sdk whatever it's called, you need either steamvr or opencomposite, not sure for the other questions I'm sorry to say. https://gitlab.com/znixian/OpenOVR/blob/master/README.md
  5. I'll happily take it if it's still available
  6. A quick flight later and I now remember why I've been having to be so timid with the MiG-3 πŸ˜„
  7. Well that was a very nice email to wake up to this morning, thank you so much Varibraun, I look forward to getting back into the La5FN which was always my favoured aircraft in the IL2 1946 series πŸ˜„
  8. This community is such a breath of fresh air when I think back to the old Ubi days, full of absolutely top folks. Onto my favourite book, it would have to be I Flew for the Fuhrer by Heinz Knoke, just really eye opening for me: https://www.amazon.co.uk/I-Flew-Fuhrer-Heinz-Knocke-ebook/dp/B00BM4SLLS/ref=sr_1_5?crid=4EOZALWL8X3B&keywords=i+flew+for+the+fuhrer&qid=1575728108&sprefix=i+flew+for+the+%2Caps%2C1574&sr=8-5 As to the very generous gifts can I please take number 3 and be put into contention for 4. Battle of Kuban – Standard with the following as alternatives 11. La-5FN Series 2 12. Yak-1b 1. Battle of Bodenplatte – Premium Thanks!!!
  9. Depends how sore my neck is, the one downside of VR, though I suspect given enough time it'll loosen up and become far easier.
  10. My poor neglected TiR5 has sat unused for over two years since I got my rift...
  11. Hey all, quick question that I can't seem to find an answer for by searching, I did try honest I fly in VR and have icons switched on for now, however I have noticed that during a blackout they are still clearly visible, is there a way to have them fade out along with everything else? Thanks
  12. I've been playing flight sims since I was a child, from the ZX Spectrum and on, got quite heavily into IL2 Sturmovik with the original release from Oleg and spent many many hours flying it in all its iterations, so many fun times in multiplayer and coop, so many familiar names here too bought RoF but was never happy with the performance on my systems and something never quite felt right with it for me (too used to how IL2 was I'd imagine), had a bit of a nasty run in with a veteran who didn't share any compatible viewpoint with the use of combat sims, that along with the disaster that was CloD and having had an eye op that I took a while to recover from put me off for a good few years. I picked up BoS a while back when it was on sale and have dropped into these forums every now and then to have a browse, never really playing it a great deal other than an occasional practice take off and (usually crash) landing, then a couple of years ago picked up a bargain Oculus Rift and spent a little time trying to get it working well enough to play, my aging system being the issue, however a new AIO watercooler and a decent (4.4ghz) overclock on my 2500k coupled with a donated 980ti and the installation of opencomposite and it's very playable and wow!!! What a sim!!! This is what I have been wanting since I was a child, to be actually able to fly these planes in VR is just on another level entirely and I can only try to imagine just how much better it's going to get in the future, or even could be now with a high end system. I'd really like to thank not only Jason for his vision and stepping up when things were looking bleak for sims (as I recall it, could be entirely incorrect on this... either way that had to be a significant risk to his financial security!), his team have done outstanding things here and if I wasn't in a bit of a employment downturn right now I suspect I'd have bought every single aircraft and edition available, certainly will be when things change!!! Thanks to everybody who supports this genre, you're all part of the machine keeping it alive and kicking 🍻 Might even venture into multiplayer at some point though I suspect I'll be at a significant disadvantage now I actually need to contort myself to check six, darn TIR has made me lazy πŸ˜„ Also, big thanks goes out to Sevenless again for the gift of BoM Premium earlier in the year, it was this that really got me flying again S!
  13. I also see this, CV1 and it happens using opencomposite and steamvr, single player with head restriction disabled.
  14. Ohhh, nice, I've been meaning to give it a try with opencomposite, guess this might just give me a kick to set it up later
  15. Seems to be significantly smoother for my system too, not tried any spotting yet, now if we could just get rid of the nausea inducing stutter mess that is the loading screens (DCS World is still worse at it though...) it'd make my decade :) I don't play this enough at all :/
