  1. Steam VR is a pain in the arse if you use a Rift. However, even though you might need to run Steam to access the game, you do not need to run Steam VR; Make sure Steam VR is off. Run OpenComposite, click on 'Switch to OpenComposite' and close the app. Run the Occulus launcher. Now run the game. Enjoy an extra 10fps and all that added smoothness.....
  2. "Peach fronted" ? I like that......
  3. Hello Billy and welcome to the 'Dogz. Don't worry about times too much - we have north americans who meet up when the rest of us are fast asleep. Also, you're not the first Canadian Leopard driver to be a member of the 'Dogz.
  4. Waiting on Fruitbat to show us something beautiful in 4k......

    New Toy Mmm

    By now the guy on the p.a. had whipped himself into a gabbling frenzy which meant it must be time for our brave lads to do their thang....

    The tide, it did steadily rise.....Which annoyingly pushed the crowd even further back from the display line. In previous years this was effectively the shoreline but post-Shoreham a line of yellow marker buoys some 200m further out marks the limits of the display This was particularly unfortunate for the pair of Battle of Britain display flight Spitfires which followed. Not a big plane, this added distance means you just don't get to appreciate that Merlin sound at all....

    New Toy Mmm

    A couple of years ago now I bought the nice Canon 55 - 250mm all singing, all-dancing zoom lens for my toy specifically to take pictures of aeroplanes. Yesterday afternoon I finally managed to take some piccies of aeroplanes! Ladies, gentlemen...and Painless; I present Sidmouth Airshow and Super-spreader event, 2021 It's a traditional British format; cram as many people as possible onto an uncomfortable beach on a rising tide and put in an extensive p.a. system manned by someone in love with the sound of their own voice. First up was a display by the Royal Navy's Wildcat. Great! Of course being essentially a stupid person, I read this as being one of these Whereas it turned out to be one of these, ho hum... It did it's thing and was swiftly followed by some sort of Pitts special which in my opinion put on a tremendous show This thing is capable of some astonishing prop-hanging
  8. Try doing this with TrackIr It's not for everyone but I'm with Crash; I couldn't fly IL2 without it these days. Formation flying in VR is just astonishing. I must get my sh#t together and do some!
  9. It's a right pain in the arse is what a damp course is.
  10. Can't see them again. Perhaps someone at BT prefers Strike Fighters.....?
  11. I can see them now! Isn't that a paint scheme I've seen on a B58 Hustler?
  12. Weird. I can't see them here or over on the IL2 site.
  13. I think this shows just how far up their own backside Microsoft have travelled. Many millions around the world are just casual non-tech minded users and now they are expected to go into BIOS to check UEFI, Secure Boot & TPM are enabled?? This is an invitation to scam. I can just imagine the 'phone calls ahead; "This is Microsoft support. We are showing that your TPM is not enabled Mrs. Smith......"
  14. Hi Jabo, Yeah, it's not so easy to find now. I've got 16gig of .Skill Ripjaws Z Series in 4 x 4gigs. DRAM frequency is 800mhz according to cpuz.
  15. Does anyone have any DDR3 memory kicking around that they want to off-load? I'm running 16gig at the moment and I'd like to get upto 32. Have folding money too
  16. Well I'd never heard of 'gyropilot' before.
  17. There must some sort of catchy tune in this? It looks pretty astonishing for a freebie btw
  18. Anyone called Seagoon is welcome here.
  19. I wonder how much weight is saved by taking out the guns, ammo, armour plate, oxygen, self-sealing fuel tanks and the original radio?
  20. A different take on prop animation.....
  21. A snip at just under eight grand but free postage!! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174080889252?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=174080889252&targetid=1140323547510&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1007073&poi=&campaignid=12125486594&mkgroupid=116055955639&rlsatarget=pla-1140323547510&abcId=9300482&merchantid=113610505&gclid=CjwKCAjw6qqDBhB-EiwACBs6x2oQr29Q3h6OL8ULHfttimP63TXu7CuakFl_RNgFrFib7wjQVkg9cRoCF04QAvD_BwE
