Discussion of Battle of Kuban Pre-Order

Recommended Posts

But since you write about VR (and not OR) and "hope to have supported" all the time I assume it won't be supported. But since I play flight sims only in VR I guess I have to skip that pre-order as well and come back in 16 months.

 

:excl:  You said before: "You play flight sims only in OR!"  Now you say: "You play flight sims only in VR!" :big_boss:

 

Not sure where your problem is but Jason mention exactly what VR Hardware will be supported here inside the BoK announcement

 

8. When you make DX11 do you plan to support Oculus Rift?

Yes we need DX11 before we can support VR properly (Rift, Vive). Won't probably be ready for a few months more though. DX11 tech new for us so we are just now learning about the possibilities.

Wow, so much fuzz about a simple question...  :o:

 

Thanks all who tried to help to just answer the question without all the la-di-da.

 

So for all who also had the same question: it's not clear yet if Kuban is Oculus Rift ready, but they try to to implement it.

Simple.

 

PS @ Jason:

The guys at Oculus are not my friends (but they sold me a very good product)

I would say the OR is a meh product at best

You have several months to pre-order, but sooner the better for us if you can swing it. We appreciate any order you can do whenever you can.

 

:salute:

Pre-ordered!

 

Right now thinking back to the first time I flew a P-39 in Il-2: game demo from a gamer mag, rainy weather, going up against two Ju-88's with deadly tail gunners. THAT was a WAUW experience, I'm pretty sure Il-2:BOK in VR will be as well! Trusty old P-39, I'm coming baaaack....

Reminds me of an old IL2 topic. Can you confirm that rain on canopy was included on the 2002 demo?

There used to be some discussion about it actually. Because in official game it is not included. Unfortunately.

Sorry for getting off topic by the way...

I'm not sure if 777 want to sell me this game or not, but I'm going to ask for the 5th time:

 

Will Kuban already support Oculus Rift (or DX11 for that matter) or not?

 

Thanks,

Sputnik

They have talked about VR but nothing about virtual reality. 

 

Is 777 even considering virtual reality, or just VR?

 

:rolleyes:

 

 

Also, why are the ones in the top "aircraft" and the collector ones "planes".

What's the difference?

 Spitfire... not certain about. 

 

:o:

 

Does... not... compute... does... not... compute...

 

  :megaphone:

:cray:

 

[My pre-order'll be in just as soon as the city education board cough up my dough... Grrr....]

 

(I remember when we got the Spit Vb in IL2 - spent several hours simply flying under bridges and shooting loops... marvelling at the beauty of the thing. There'll be plenty of time later to "finesse" the FM   :rtfm:   :P )

O. M. G!

 

Must be something to do with Russian state sponsorship and bias....

 

(By the way, in terms of VR (OR/Vive/...erm...)  I'm waiting for Magic Leap! I want my keyboard visible when I need to hit Ctrl-E... Magic Leap had better support BoS. If it doesn't, it's a deal-breaker!  ;)  [as far as Magic leap is concerned, obviously])

Read the last post from Jason and then you see that VR doesn't necessarily means Oculus Rift. But how would a monkey know?

You're welcome.

VR means VR. The only two major players right now are OR and Vive, so instead of saying OR and Vive EVERY TIME, we refer to them as VR.

 

It's not that hard, no matter how you twist it.

Any chance we can update a hammer and sickle(like this "☭") or soviet flag on that golden bar, star is kinda repetitive imo and eastern front trilogy are well presented as main title, of course, I'm sure there will be some sweet expansions for maps and collector's planes.

 

Edit: I mean some ideas of soviet elements from vvs pilot madal just except the star and ribbon and it looks fine with majority. That's how I was going to picture it.

I don't think this symbol is welcomed by everyone in the most part of world just like hakenkreutz.

Pretty sure actual raindrops on the canopy weren't present. Just remember streaks falling straight down when you were parked and slanting towards you when you were flying.

 

The demo can still be downloaded I think. It was something like 144 mb. It was truly staggering when it came out: a huge leap forward in combat flight simming. Immediately propelled Maddox into the limelight.

Remember the snap roll on that one Frey.... :)

 

Yeah, it was brutally unstable. Made every previous combat flight sim feel "on rails"...

Guys,

 

PLEASE lets just forget the bloody "Spirit of 46".

 

I'm more the spirit of either Laphroaig or Lagavulin Single Malt peated Whisky!  

 

I find both enhance my piloting ability and even if thy don't it makes me feel all warm inside!!

 

:wacko:

 

 

Now the 1946 vintage would be a great Whisky to try!!!

Joking aside, anything that makes people want to play or come back to this sim has to be a step in the right direction!!!

 

Regards!!

This is a completly useless post apart from the fact that I want to admire my new BOK tag on the left and to say thank you 777 and thanks for the transparency, the communications and the hard work.

 

Salam Aleykum :P

Wow...

It's entirely possible that Kuban will be "VR ready" but not"Oculus Rift ready" because of technical reasons.

You've been proven wrong like 15 posts ago from the devs themselves and still you're here trying to split hair to just be partly correct. On a question nobody asked you to answer.

Must be lonely under you rock... or on your palm tree?

 

Looking forward to what you will come up with next :)

Maybe a link to a PR-promise from a random game developer that actually did come true?

 

Maybe to avoid that from the beginning: yes you are right and smart, and I am wrong and stupid.

 

Now that we have that out of the way maybe we can move on and discuss the Battle of Kuban again?

Also the (red) star is used generally as a symbol of socialism. It is still widely used today in many countries. It is not the symbol of Stalin and his reign, though they used it during his time. Would not compare it to the hakenkreutz.

And my next investment into a dreamy future with an enhanced IL2 with VR is complete.

The Red Star is still widely used in many countries indeed.
