    Time to cobble something together for christmas

    After some slight re-arranging of my case I have installed an RTX2070. It's one big mother of a card and everything is whizzing along splendidly at warp factor eight. As an added bonus my cpu is running around five to six degrees cooler than before too. At the moment it's on a very simple, lazy overclock to 4.1ghz. From past experience I'm sure that with a couple of hours fiddling around I'll be able to get it to 4.5ghz with similar temps. It's all plugged into my 27" screen running at 1920 x 1080. Thus I seem to have a Ferrari engine bolted to a Hillman Minx* transmission. I was therefore thing about one of these; https://www.benq.eu/en-uk/monitor/video-enjoyment/ew3270u.html For a similar cost to the above monitor I could get the Samsung Odyssey +. However, reviews are mixed and my plan is to sit it out for another year to await VR developments before taking the plunge. Of course some, er.....domestic sensitivity - in the spending department - must now prevail However, a quick perusal of evilbay this evening shows some other, very interesting options at half the price..... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HTC-Vive-VR-Headset-including-all-original-components/143180340248 or https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OCULUS-RIFT-TOUCH-VR-HEADSET-inc-2-Controllers-and-2-Sensors-Mint-Condition/372625700492 Therefore I'm now seriously considering taking a punt on a used one at these prices Advice, suggestions, slander, etc. all gratefully received........ *Google it.
  2. Just been on evilbay and made a bid on a used Intel i5 3570k and Asrock Z77 extreme4 mobo bundle - wiv' a big cooler. It all looks very very exciting Does anyone have any experience with one of these CPUs? Target overclock will be 4.5Ghz If i win I might even treat myself to a new case!

    DCS F-14A/B Pre-order Now Available at Heatblur

    It's arrived and it's enormous! Gonna' give it the DCS treatment shortly.
  4. This weeks BoS update is rather more involved than most being a complete re-install of the game. Worth a read of the dev diary; http://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/168-developer-diary/page-2#entry90146 Before sending my present copy of the game off to the recycle bin I made a copy of my control settings....just in case You can find yours in the game folder/Data/Input.

    New Game Launcher, New Set Up

    Reference our conversation last night on the capability of the a.i. rear-gunner in the Pe2; This was recorded on Wings of Liberty server two and a half years ago but nothing in the a.i. logic has been changed as far as I'm aware. What you see is the a.i. rear gunner in action from his perspective. I'm actually flying the plane.* All these '109's were flown by breathers. You can see why the Pe2 makes 'em so cross *I must get on with the rough and ready guide to the viewing and track recording system I keep promising

    I think I sound like a high-pitched cockney w@nker and now I know I do sound like a high-pitched, etc, etc.....
  12. Hello Pavel and welcome to the DangerDogz forum. I think I can answer this on behalf of all our squad members. The DangerDogz server was set up for our own amusement - for fun. Having fun is what the DangerDogz are about. Our idea of fun is to jump on team speak, shoot a few planes down and herd a few Cats. Statistics? I can't ever remember any of us ever having a discussion about statistics so......we don't have them. External views? Well Cliffs is many things and one of them is certainly graphical beauty so why just restrict yourself to the inside of the cockpit only? On a more serious level; yes I understand where you are coming from but luckily Cliffs still has some diversity of servers and I believe the no externals, no icons, statistically proven experten are catered for by other servers. Of course, if we talk of experten then we must also talk of the newbies to the game. Being about the most famous air battle of all time and being available on Steam means Cliffs of Dover Blitz edition still maintains a healthy number of genuine newcomers to combat flight sims. We hope that we can provide a toe in the water of multiplayer for these welcome newcomers - before they all go onto become Erich Hartmann!

    Two weeks? Thats probably a good thing. I think it's going to take me that long to figure out how to launch missiles from my Mig 19!

    Nice one Colin! After thirty years of being together I'm just looking at ways of hiding a chunk of money from my wife so I can buy a 2070

    Our DCS Server

    I see. Thanks Kira, understood. I'm a bit reluctant to download another version of DCS so if I wait for my present beta to become the stable version I should be good to go on the DD server?
