    DCS: F-14 Update - Jester AI

    Was this guy an actual back seat jester? Seems like it would be better if he had the experience of that job to make it more realistic. He's laughing at points where he almost hits the ground. Where he should be saying shit, shit, shit! Oh well, we'll see what the end product is like. But there should definitely be some swearing. I think that will probably need to be a mod.

    Version 2.5 Graphics Question

    Minty green tree colors can be caused my old shaders if you did an DCS update and not a clean/new install. Just delete the ...Users/xxx/Saved Games\DCS\fxo and ...Users/xxx/Saved Games\DCS\metashaders folders. The game will rebuild those shader folders for each Theater. So, then fly a quick mission in each theater and wait for it to load.. and wait... and wait.. Once they are built it will load faster. If you are getting 100-150 fps you can turn your graphic settings up much higher. Try to match your refresh rate of your monitor. My monitors are 60mhz.. So, I shoot for 60fps on average, and turn my graphics up until the fps are hitting around that range. Cheers!
  6. Finally got mine working. Had to unplug my Thrustmaster T300rs Racing Wheel. Now, can I just copy my saved clod settings over? Or is it not compatible? Sent from my Moto Z Play using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks, yes I know. I have posted with their devs. This morning they are saying it is a problem with Logitech controllers or Wheels. I'm in no hurry. I think they will get it fixed. Cherrio!
  8. Crash, Crash, Crash. Not Crash, I mean Blitz. So far that's all it's good for. But it's great for showing that new Logo before the crash. Event Log says it's the ntdll.dll causing the crash. Devs say it's a 32bit overlay probably. Others say they have fixed it by unplugging their controllers the first time they run it. None worked for me. Oh well..

    Perfect Mode Question

    I disagree. Flying past something at 700mph is smoother IMO. Most of the time you won't notice it, I agree. But there are times when it looks smoother. I'm not sure if it's because the eye has more frames to choose from as the brain processes it or what. But I have seen the difference even in hdtv sets where the are trying to show off their solutions. It's always in a scene where the background is moving fast. Just my opinion.

    Can give me a link to these?
  11. Yes, Prop Pitch is called 'Propeller RPM control'.
  12. I had not flown BoX with anyone until yesterday with Jack and AP. I found out that Jack can host with no problems on his local pc. Gustang has made many missions and knows the editor pretty well. And you can see your aircraft on the o map by pressing the i key. It shows up as a black aircraft icon. We just flew one mission, but we started on the runway with engines running. Just had to know how to set 2-3 things before takeoff. One of the things that had confused me is that I didn't know that you can have duplicate hotas assignments in your settings. I thought they would conflict. You can setup an axis for something in one aircraft and the same axis for something else in another aircraft. I had not assigned an axis to the La5's cowl flaps because I had used all of my axis for other planes. But Jack explained that was not a problem. I can just assign it again.

    Yea, but probably too late for me. I go to bed around 9:30 - 10. Do you guys start earlier? No weekends?

    When do you guys fly Jack? Any weekends?

    Not me. I bought an Oculus Rift 3 months ago and tested DCS, IL2 BoX, Elite Dangerous, and other games. I don't like VR for DCS. The game is too complicated to play without seeing my keyboard, hotas, and second monitor. BoX and ED are playable with it and it looks ok. But the graphics quality is reduced by at least half for me. I have triple screens and graphics quality looks great on them. VR is still in it's infancy. It will be several years I think before I see it mainstream. The most impressive tech I have see is they use eye tracking to only process the best graphics at the point where you are looking. That looks very realistic and is far less demanding. They were getting very high fps and what the user saw was much more detailed. But I digress. I guess I have just spent so much to get very high graphics to lose so much of it in VR. I consider VR a fun toy at this point.

    Perfect Mode Question

    Yes with vsync on you get no tearing. I'm just saying that with it on you get 60 fps only if your card is producing 60 or more fps. When the card produces 59 fps(or less) vsync only gives you 30 fps. I saw a great video about how the buffers work last week.. Not sure if this is it, but this explains it well also..

    Perfect Mode Question

    But if the game can't produce 60 fps, it jumps down to 30 fps with v-sync. So you have to reduce your graphics to stay above 60, or accept tearing. But you guys are really talking about the FreeSync and G-Sync here right? Where you buy a special monitor that changes it's refresh rate when the graphics card tells it to.. So the video card's fps control the monitors refresh rate? Personally, I rarely notice tearing and fixing it at this point is more of a hassle that it's worth.

    Perfect Mode Question

    Doesn't vsync normally limit your system to 60 fps, and if the game is too demanding ding (most are), it drops to 30fps? I'll take the tearing (I don't notice it) and keep my fps high. Sent from my Moto Z Play using Tapatalk

    I've played a little with mission building in Box. It's confusing. It's based on RoF. Not nearly as easy as IL2 1946. And I believe that you have to host on a separate server, so hosting and flying on the same pc may not be possible.. But I think they may be working on changing that, but I'm not sure. Arthur should be part of this conversation.. He probably knows all the answers.. Sent from my Moto Z Play using Tapatalk

    For my 2¢, the reason I stopped flying was that I got tired of the 30+ mins between missions. Once I was dead couldn't respawn in coops. Also I love DCS and it drew me in.. DCS will never be a viable sim for this group because of it's complexity, pc requirements, and everyone won't want to focus on the same aircraft as other A10C, Huey, and other squads have. It just won't work for an old farts squad. ) Long term BOX is the only viable option. If you were flying that I'd be there now. Or if I could find a laid back DCS squad, I'd be there now. But they have too many requirements and even though I love it, I'm old.. Slow to learn.. Good luck figuring this out. I've got my eye on you. Snack Sent from my Moto Z Play using Tapatalk
  21. Yes, just a quick test of my controls to make sure I didn't loose them. With VR in ED you have to completly uninstall ED, and get a 'Partner Key' from Frontier. Then you use that key to get a free VR version of ED from Oculus.
  22. That looks like the best map so far. I bought a Oculus Rift for half price last week and have been setting up my games. Finally got bos/bom setup, but haven't had a chance to fly it yet.. Hopefully I'll find time today.. Sent from my Moto Z Play using Tapatalk

    Il-2 1946 Cup Jet Age Module Simpit

    Doh! The QMB did not have a map selected. It was blank. Now it works. With the 100 options on that screen I didn't notice. And the Single Mission works now. So I fixed something. Now to patch to 3.1.. Cheers. Thanks guys. Your the best. I got no answers to the same post on the SAS website since yesterday...
