  3. Now that I am able to generate missions and host I am planning to run a campaign loosely based on fenrers s P-38 campaign and based on Geoffrey Wellums career. With numbers currently low , we would all fly RAF, however if I can drum up enough support and others express an interest then both sides will be flyable. So will start with Battle of France, Battle of Britain, Reach out to France, Malta, and then fictionally the Desert Air Force. I would like to know if there is any interest in this from outside, Crash, Professor, Mosquito and Petrol ,who I have discussed this with on comms, so I can estimate numbers for missions. I also intend to promote this on the main BoX forums to try to get others interested in flying with us. This is in the very early stages so any suggestions or advise will be gratefully accepted.

  5. UPDATE 10TH FEBRUARY 2024 V2.7 Changed F16 planes to facilitate "Link16" capability. There are now 2 groups of 4 aircraft "Viper-1" and "Viper-2". This means that the "Link16" can now be used to lock your wing-man or flight lead and be able to track them in the helmet / HUD also to see which targets they are locking etc. Thanks to @fruitbat for technical support and for assistance in testing. Link system also now configured correctly for land based F18's to share information. F18's can also donate to F16's and vice versa. Added notification for when AI planes are starting to be generated on the Western and Eastern zones. Hidden Attack Town reinforcements so that they can not be attacked until the correct time. Hidden Attack Town Leader so that the escaping vehicle can not be attacked until the correct time. Added 4 x Mosquito, 4 x Spitfire, 3 x P51, 3 x P47 to the airfield for sight-seeing and photo opportunities with the modern fighters. You can of course go ground-target hunting but will be up against modern defenses. And also....1 x I16 at the airfield for FT

  6. UPDATE 5TH FEBRUARY 2024 V2.4 New feature of being able to pick-up the troops once they have completed town assault and search to bring them home. Added "Search in Zone then attack" options against AI to try and keep them from straying over in to areas we do not want them (untested at the moment).

  7. I voted to move DCS to Tuesday anyway. I'm also of the belief that people who are actually flying, their vote should have more importance than those who aren't, as it doesn't affect them one way or the other.

  8. I view it as my hobby. If I played golf there would be club membership fees, the latest in golf stick design, jumpers, shoes etc. DCS gives me many, many hours of fun and I do circle round the VR options as I would REALLY like to see what it looks like, but I am not spending any more money....

  9. Indeed Col. It's one game I definitely don't want to play. They say buy the best card you can afford, but even now I'm finally in the position after a couple of years saving etc. to get the top card, the principle of it feels all wrong. I suppose it boils down to measuring value in these things rather than just raw cost. And that's a personal thing. I then reflect, that despite suffering with stuttering, low resolution and rapid filling of VRAM for the last couple of years, I still bloody love flying DCS in VR right now. So, the improvement I'll see with a 4070Ti SUPER & a Quest 3 would surely be worth it. Damn DCS, why can't I be into Minecraft.

  10. UPDATE 28TH JANUARY 2024 version 2.2 New area of operations added North West of the airfield intended for F4 (when available), F5, Mirage F1, A4-E and Bronco. Random spawned enemy aircraft Mig15, Mig19 and Mig21 only. Currently no active SAM missiles. For practice one SA-3 Search Radar and one SA-3 Tracking radar. One pair of static launchers. Air defenses made up of 57mm flak units only. Ground targets of trucks and road outposts plus 6 bridges with AAA defense. Convoy of trucks heading south east towards town through mountain region. F4 (when available), F5, Mirage F1 and A4-E moved to Northern side of airfield to create own area. Modern jet liner objects deleted from map. Sound files added to mission to alert for mission updates. F15, F16 Cold start options for now placed in hangers. Objective and place labels added to map.

  13. ok thanks ☹️ Given the large numbers involved in the mosquito mission perhaps its best if the BoX users fly on a public server.

  15. Hmmm, I'm reconsidering. Plenty of comments on the Overclockers forum suggesting the 4080 SUPER is only 1-3% performance gain over the 4080. Asus TUF 4080 Super going here for £1,200 ish, so I'm now sorely tempted to bite the bullet and just go for one of the Gainward or Palit 4090s which are only £400 more. Haha, listen to this madness!

  17. Further research has made me think that it would be best to change this to a 73 Squadron RAF Campaign No 73 were one of a handful of Squadrons transferred to protect the BEF in France in 1939-1940. Flying Hurricanes it fought actions intercepting reconnaissance aircraft, bombers and protecting the fairey battles in attacking convoys and bridges. Its last action was covering the evacuations from St Nazzaire. Historically it underwent conversion to night fighter operations but we will have some leeway here Subsequently they were transferred to Cairo and flying P-40s and Hurricane Mk 2s they fought in the desert campaigns against the Africa korp (we will put a short stay in Malta into the mix) Finally they converted to spitfires and covered the Italian and Balkan campaign. I have ordered a book on the squadron history and will use this as reference but the missions will be an approximation and we will have to substitute some planes. I would appreciate any thoughts or feedback on this

  19. That didnt solve it, however following a suggestion on th Il-2 forum I used display driver uninstaller and have just had a 20 minute flight on WW server I got 80-90 FPS constant so it looks hopeful.

  20. Hey @DD_Fenrir I have "converted" your mission using DML as an exercise and thought you may like to take a look at how different it can look. The only thing I have not been able to do is the radar checks, but working on it. I will send in a PM as we do not want the unclean getting a sneak preview

  25. Morning @BluBear I did a bit of searching this morning over breakfast ref your issue and found this after seeing lots of people having the same issue in v3 or earlier. The guy from Meta Forum (my link in this topic) has found solution for this two weeks ago after almost 3 years of investigation. Open Command Prompt (cmd.exe) and paste this: reg add “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Oculus\RemoteHeadset” /v “numSlices” /t REG_DWORD /d “1” /f Of course you have to use straight quotation marks (this forum changes them to typographer’s quotes). It’s necessary to restart Oculus service (or better restart your OS if you don’t know how to do it). You can experiment with different numbers (“4”, “3”, “2”, “1”), however only “1” (one slice) works for me with cabled connection. Quest renders image using 5 slices and when 1 of this slice (usually 5th one) is not encoded correctly you get this white stripe. The command above changes image rendering to 1 slice. This adds some latency but I haven’t noticed any performance drop so far. If you want to remove this fix use this command: reg delete “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Oculus\RemoteHeadset” /v “numSlices” I got the above from here in case you want to have a read through https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/quest-2-white-artifact/579744/10

  26. Thanks mate! Yes I think I stumbled on a similar post somewhere else. I'll give it a try. Sounds like it's a problem that only arises when using link cables with Quest 2 and 3 and not over airlink. All fun and games!

  27. Salute I am pleased to present my take on the coalition action taken against Iraq and their invasion of Kuwait. The mission takes place on the 24th February 1991. Coalition air power made up of F14, F18, Harrier, F16, F15, Mirage, F5, A10 plus Apache Helicopters will support ground forces on their push into Kuwait. Sign up below, full brief to follow.

  29. Ahh cool. I see. Nicely done! Picked up my Quest 3 yesterday as well, do you use the official link cable or a third party one? The meta one seems a touch pricey.

  31. Awesome Chis, Yup on Thursday picked up my 4080 SUPER and installed, that's why I was DCS absent. All I can say is wow what a difference. Still have a lot of tweaking on settings to experiment with. 16 VRAM is your VR friend ,24 VRAM is even better. You are good for a long long time. Still Ridiculous money($1369.00 plus tax) I spent on it, What ever happened to the reasonable priced GPU of the passed, unfortunately now long gone. Good news at least I sold my Quest 2 for $300.00. Bought it new for about $400.

  32. Some who voted may be planning to return to box in the future so I don't think that their vote is worth less than others. I think that people probably voted to keep the same nights as they didn't want box diminished further and have no interest in dcs However there was only one vote swing on a low turnout so I think there is room to compromise. If the regular box flyers were willing to move Tuesday to Wednesday and retain Sunday then DC's could have the Tuesday slot. The regular Tuesday flyers are professor, crash, mosquito, petrol and myself . If there is an agreement from the rest of this group to move then I would be happy to host Wednesday nights. Once happy with hosting I'm going back to the official box forums to try to get others to join us but need to get this issue sorted first

  33. Not from me; I'd happily exchange the DCS Monday night sesh for a Tuesday or Sunday, and given that 2/3rds of our attendees seem to be looking at DCS more than GBS these days, I thought that would be the way it swung. Personally if I were running the Dogz I'd make that call and bedone with it. However, I'm not, the Dogz is a democracy and the Dogz have voted... I'd love to share the DCS skies with you Crash mate, but I'm at a loss at what else to suggest.

  34. Hey Colin Just to update on the other fellows that do not check the D Forums as much. Zukker has all the maps except Atlantic map. Sherrif has all the maps except Atlantic map Wingflyr has all the maps including the Atlantic map. Thanks Col

  36. ...and then wait just a bit longer as the 6090 is just around the corner.. I feel your pain on this BB. Its a lot of money to spend and we all would not want to make the wrong choice. It almost feels like the more you research into it the muddier the waters get. It is very difficult I think, in most cases, to find "this is definitely the way to go", there are always caveats which you have to weigh up.

  38. Holy thread resurrection Batman! I'm close to (finally) pulling the trigger on a new graphics card and a Quest 3. Currently eagerly awaiting the release of the 4080 SUPER - any minute now, right - which after some consideration is probably the card of choice for me. Or, do I just bite the bullet and get a 4090 that'll see me for a number of years... 🤔 I can hear @fruitbat whispering "do it, doooooo iiiiiiiit" @wingflyr where are you on this now? Did you say you were holding out for the 4080 SUPER?

  39. I am going to try to host coops on Tuesday night. This is atrial and I plan to host some coops I have made, if you want any specific planes or scenarios let me know and I will try to fit these in . I will start at 2000 and end 2100 UK time.

  40. UPDATE 22ND JANUARY 2024 version 2.1 Refined AI random generation. Hostage pickup and return is now only from/to the FARP. Added ability to take troops into battle from the airfield. To the south east of the airfield a patrol has located an enemy build up of insurgents and requires you to take elements of the 101st Airborne over to them to assist with the attack on the town. They have marked the landing zone with green smoke. Load up and deployment is via the communication menu.
