  1. Oh right, shit I'm still asleep this morning. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜… Give me a Do 335 then.
  2. Me 163 - such a fascinating aircraft, I'd love to take it for a spin in VR. Of course we'd ideally need some B-17s and B-24s to go with it. The He 162 would also be interesting. And pushing the realms of fantasy: the Ho 229.
  3. Soilworker + BoN Thanks dude, very generous thing you're doing.
  4. Are you sure you have the controls mapped correctly? Sounds like you might have everything bound to Engine 1 instead of All engines.
  5. Didn't we cover that a few weeks ago? πŸ˜…
  6. Oh I know and I agree 100% but you're just not allowed to post them on this forum.
  7. I have a TrackIR5, it's collecting dust on a shelf, meanwhile I'm on my 2nd VR headset, I'll never go back to non-VR simming. Having it "strapped to your head" is not bad, you don't really notice it because you get immersed in what you're doing. I'm not saying you should go out and by one but you should definitely try it.
  8. Okay I feel I should preface this by saying I'm on the way home from an Irish pub and I've had had 4 beers and I think 7 or 8 (fairly low alcohol) shots. But I don't think mirrors are the answer, realistically pilots were fairly well strapped in and were rather restricted, movementwise. Basically the people using TrackIR have an unfair advantage, this is just what we* VR users have to deal with for experiencing the awesomeness that is VR unless they somehow restrict TrackIR - which in turn will piss a lot of people off. Basically I have no real answer. πŸ˜… *I say "we" as I'm a VR user but I don't play online.
  9. Merry Christmas to you too! (But you might want to hide that swastika! β˜οΈπŸ˜‰)
  10. Can you try testing the axis for something else to see if the same problem occurs? ie: oil radiator (in a plane that has it as a manual control of course). Do you have another axis (eg: the throttle from a different joystick) that you can bind to throttle to see if that has the same issue? Seems really bizarre, at what rate does it oscillate? Is it a smooth transition or jerky? I'm not going to pretend I know a lot about fixing this sort of problem but a little troubleshooting is always a good idea.
  11. Modern SSDs are that good that isn't really a problem anymore so don't worry about it unless you have like a first generation SSD or something.
  12. This one I always enjoyed, fits the WWII theme nicely too. πŸ˜„
  13. Can you reproduce it and make a video? I for one would be interested in seeing this phenomenon. 😏
  14. You just have to get used to it. There's a good YouTube video about plane identification out there, just can't remember who made it right now.
