    Would love an STL @Rox so I can 3D print or carve with my CNC Router!

    Looking really good Rox! aiming to export as an STL so it can be 3D printed?
  3. I have the X55 and it is good, the X56 is reportedly better quality, and has a thumb stick on the main stick too. X55 did have cable issues, they can break after long usage (mine did) but I was able to take the throttle apart and rewire it. Split throttle is useful too for multi engine, or chopper flying in DCS. The software is pretty good, and easy to program for those that want more from their button presses too, especially with 3 modes. For those that are adventurous I have a mod that can be 3D printed to mount the X55/6 stick on a MSFFB2 base too.
  4. OpenOVR run as Administrator was the charm! Thanks Arthur, had the pleasure of shooting down a couple of BF109-E in a Tempest
  5. Thanks Colin, that one I had seen - Did I get it right you have to do this for every plane? However the issue I have for example is that I am actually positioned behind the seat, with head height 1-2 feet above the wings in the Tempest. In any other VR game I would simply reset view and that would fix it, IL2 does not appear to respect that...
  6. As title suggests I am having a problem with pilot position in VR on my Rift S in BoX. Have read where you set position in 2D using the Insert/Home/PgUp keys etc, and save with F10. However I still find myself too high/forward/back and centering view does nothing in Steam VR. How have others fixed this if they experienced it?
  7. Hi all, After the recent upgrade some users have the wrong flag for their country (seems to default to the UK). This is due to geoid location failing. Easy to change though: Click 'Account Settings' and then 'Country': You will see a drop down to select country:
  8. Sorry Craig, missed the PM for some reason. I did check and there is nothing awry with your account. Have you tried logging on in a private mode session in Chrome? That would rule out any funky stored data at your end. If that does the same I can try setting a password for you and PM you the password.
  9. I stumbled across this today, some really nice sounds, and Jay Leno seems a pretty cool (if very rich) guy!

    Noobs R Us

    Welcome Tinribs! Many thanks for your generosity too, much appreciated. Glad you like our server, you have FoolTrottle (FT) to thank for that
  11. That looks pretty damned nice, bit difficult finding what planes are included with base version though!
  12. Fixed that for you, members can now view the calendar. Thanks for pointing that out!
  13. I can attest that this is totally normal for the Dogs, and what passes as therapy for them too... Thanks chaps, a good read and cheered me up!
  14. When we bought our house last year I asked Spectrum/Charter if they could provide service. They said they would send out a surveyor to confirm, came back and yep no problem. Moved in and then was told no service, team lead for engineers came through, dropped a 400' cable and got us 1Gb internet. Alternative was satellite, AT&T can only provide 74Kb lol. Dark ages!
  15. Cheers Arthur, and same to you (and everyone else)! Hmmm sale time, I have some $$ left in Christmas kitty...
  16. I have added a couple of M.2 SSDs each in a PCI adapter, the NVME are the best but all are significantly faster than the SATA 6Gbs drives. And yes you can boot from them. Review carefully the read/write speeds and compare them, note: You will need a PCIE V3 or later for some to get full benefit.
  17. I may not understand the issue and proposed solution(s). But our server has a ton of horse power and should be able to cope easily with the load? Is it that console/gui access is required? I for one do not have any issue with others having that access, provided suitable training is given on what not to do of course! Apologies for tardy response, work has been utterly crazy (102 hour week is my record and 25 days without a break including working on vacation!). I am now off until January 2nd though
  18. TS is now back up, apologies had a RL issue to deal with last night (all good no in RL). Hopefully I actually did it right, and you all retained your permissions! Move is now complete.
  19. DNS changed, database now running from new server, new server working fine! TS - I will be taking down the TS server and bringing it up on new server, this will take a bit mroee than I had expected, so there will be an outage. Apologies for that.
  20. Hi all. Finally got the time to build replacement web server, the current one is on it last legs from a hardware perspective, and as I type our data is being copied across. I will be taking the site off line briefly to make the old site talk to the new servers database, this will minimize downtime whilst DNS updates to the new IP. Teamspeak: I will have to take that off-line briefly too, and do a redirect to it whilst DNS updates. So this means we are all moving to Germany briefly, as TS will see source IP from old server... I aim to complete this today, to beat the billi
  21. And yes we now have Giphy (GIF icon on editor toolbar)
  22. Great to see this, just rebuilt my system and need to get DCS re-installed. Previously I did a brief fly around in a Huey to see how the VR looked, now I know why it looked ropey lol!
  23. Hi and welcome to the 'pound'! We have no restrictions on posting of YouTube videos, which is probably good otherwise there'd be a riot!
  24. Hi all. Apologies, I tried to leverage Amazon S3 for file storage as preparation for Web server move, and it did not go as planned. I am now reverting to local storage, this will result in occasional 'file not found' errors whilst they transition back. To the best of my knowledge nothing has actually been lost, but I do have backups. This will take a few hours to complete...
