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...

This weekend

There is a good chance that I will not fly on Sunday unless I can stop this voice recognition thing kicking off when I'm wearing my Rift. I have no idea whether it is Oculus or Steam VR that is launching it, It doesn't seem to respond to the Oculus Voice commands to do anything (which is how you are...

Re: Flight controls - re convo on WhatsApp

Sorry, I missed the question. Yes, I have almost no issues with the pedals and absolutely none about ruggedness or operation. As Sparky says, they can 'migrate' a little even on carpet. I suspect that if one were to make a kind of frame for holding them and put something like velcro or rubber on the...

This is for the ordinary Gladiator. The only real difference is that the Pro doesn't have the twist grip. It's amazing how many button combinations you can get on one stick.

Re: Flight controls - re convo on WhatsApp

Not replacing them at all, Gosho. At least not yet. they all work pretty well. My only issue at the moment is that the Oculus Voice thing keeps trying to kick in when I'm playing the game at the moment and I need to get it permanently turned off. Only started on Tuesday, so not affected Ops yet than...

Re: Feldwebel Fritz leaves Kalach

Welcome Fritz. Please report to the Mission Designers' Ready Room. If Bunny is already in there with Hatter please try to ignore them and whatever you do don't let Dutch know about it.
