  1. It seems that "Mods on" was my problem - not that I have any mods installed. Once unchecked and restarted, the game worked fine.
  2. Sadly, this update has broken Tank Crew, or at least the new map. Instant CTD when starting a QM.
  3. While I've not had any major issues flying bombers with an AI lead, I would think an additional "catch up" waypoint would help keep the formation together. Mind you, with a 92% fuel load, you could probably circumnavigate the map several times. That a He-111 can get off the ground with that load is pretty amazing.
  4. Now that I recall, the leaning out of the cockpit occurred while trying out the new user-made MP feature. I assume the server settings allowed this. A recent mission in the new Career mode confirmed to me that the cockpit boundary still worked fine. I've also noticed the delay between de/activating the HUD in VR. Hopefully there will be a workaround/fix for this in the near future.
  5. I found that I can now lean right out of the (closed) cockpit in VR, so something has certainly changed.
  6. This is ridiculous and I'm not sure why you joined a North American group. We are primarily a Luftwaffe organization, which is the reason why most pilots joined our group. If you want to fly Russian, then you are welcome to join an EU Russian team and fly with them.
  7. I suspect you may be touching the brakes, which cuts the throttle.
  8. It is in Australia and NZ. We just need a fast forward button.
  9. Really impressed with the progress the team has made. Well done.
  10. Using il2missionplanner in OVRdrop OVRdrop is a VR utility available in Steam for approximately $15. It allows users to overlay any one program over the top of another. For me, I got it primarily to plot/adjust my course in il2missionplanner while playing BoX. You launch the app from Steam, get your browser up and running and launch BoX. OVRdrop has a drop down menu that lets user select which program will be activated (after assigning a hotkey), in this case, the browser. Initially, I had some trouble as I'm using an ultra-wide screen and couldn't easy find the cursor in relation to my browser, which I had resized so that it was readable in VR (1000 x 700 worked well for me). My solution was to simply move the browser that had il2missionplanner on it to the lower left corner of the screen so it was easy to navigate the mouse to that location. To make it a little easier to locate the cursor, I turned on the Show Location of Pointer using CRTL in mouse properties. Once the mouse was over the browser, I could click on it and create/modify a flight plan. Note that you have no control over the game (aircraft) while you are interacting with the browser. To regain control of the aircraft, I moved the mouse up away from the browser and clicked, which selected the game and gave me full control again. I assigned a hotkey (space) to bring up the browser and was able to view it clearly while having total control of the aircraft. It's only when you are interacting with the browser that you don't have control of the game. You can also have the option of keeping the browser static, which I did, or have it move with your head. This is more or less what it looks like, although in VR it is centered.
  11. After reading this and the other thread, I decided to give OVRdrop a try. It took a little while to set up, but I can confirm that you can interact with the Il2missionplanner while flying. I had some trouble initially as I'm using an ultra-wide screen and couldn't easy find the cursor in relation to my browser, which I needed to resize to something readable in VR (1000 x 700 worked well for me).

It's only when you are interacting with the browser that you don't have control of the game. You can also have the option of keeping the browser static, which I did, or have it move with your head. So far I'm very impressed with app as it does exactly what I need.
