Re: Recommended books

You could call it "The Writers' Block" (careful punctuation there and a pun on block).

Re: Recommended books

Nice to hear from you Nummy mate. I would wish you luck, but I'm positive that you won't need anything as mundane as that

Re: Steam VR and OTT

I'm now getting around 90fps with my 1080Ti at altitude in BoS with settings on Ultra. That's up from about half that a couple of months ago. I only use OTT to set ASW now and to start Oculus Home. I now no longer run Home Beta at startup in Steam VR Application resolution is set to 120% with manual...

Re: Welcome Guests.

Merlin would be better placed to answer some of those questions, but generally I would say that the following: Main skills: Listening to what you're told. Spotting and identifying enemies (ground and aerial). Engine management. Listening to what you're told (see what I did there? :Wink ) Aircraft: A...

Re: Feldwebel Mantock leaves Kalach

If you do just make sure that he doesn't drop his bomb right in front of you when you're making your attack from the correct direction and he's off to one side - I'm not, of course, suggesting that this may have happened before...... at least twice....... :Not :Not :Wink

Re: Flight controls - re convo on WhatsApp

Yes, they do suggest that - nobody I know has got it to actually work though - prop won't go to manual or if it does the control to change it doesn't work. Taxi slowly and carefully and it works just fine. Taxi-ing should not be done at any more than a fast walking speed, despite what you see in fil...

Re: Flight controls - re convo on WhatsApp

Seems that I spoke a little too soon about my controls - one of the wires on my TFRP rudder pedals has come loose meaning that I now have no left toe-brake. I'm going to need to get that sorted but am dreading taking them apart to do it.

Re: This weekend

Il-2 is the only program I currently run in VR, so yes, it only happens when I'm playing that. Il-2 is also the only Steam game I'm running right now, so it all makes troubleshooting that much more difficult. I don't run without the OTT as that turns off ASW for me and keeps it off. It is also set s...

Re: This weekend

Yes, those are the performance monitor type screens that I've been getting pop up occasionally in the past and the monitoring reports that I mention in post #1 - I believe that they're caused by if I press on the middle mouse button when trying to scroll, so I try to be very careful. Nothing to do w...

Re: This weekend

It brings up one or more of the VR Monitoring graphs from Oculus, the Steam VR page for Il-2, and then starts to talk as if wanting to be configured. As these are elements from at least two different VR apps, I'm lost with what to do. I've seen that link as well and that's what I was trying when I s...
