Re: Bypass steam vr for oculus

Yep, agreed. While I don't see a massive improvement, the improvements I do see are definitely worth it (and frankly it's worth it to avoid SteamVR in any case anyway).

Re: How can I say this...

I wouldn't spray WD40 in there even if it didn't mess with the circuitry - it'll eventually gum it up worse (requiring more sprayings). I think Bunny has the best option on this if you want to fix it... I assume it's out of warranty?

Welcome Noris! As a somewhat newcomer myself I can tell you this is a great bunch to fly with. Looking forward to seeing you in the air with us soon.

Re: Recommended books

I'd definitely have to agree with you there Sparky. My first one was a mess. Second one wasn't much better (that one I didn't finish completely as a result - it sits there in the slush pile, toying with me...). Then I had the unthinkable happen - I wrote nearly 70,000+ words of a historical fiction ...

Indeed. I might have to chat a bit with you and Nummy sometime, Sparky. You guys aren't the only writers in these here parts. Revision has been my bane.

Re: Steam VR and OTT

That's a good question. I've wondered about that. I was toying with some of those settings with Skyrim VR - the default setting was 174%, just like Tom's, but I messed around with pushing Skyrim VR's specific setting up to 150%, and my OTT is typically hard set at 1.5. I really didn't notice much of...

Re: This weekend

Understood Silk. Again, I don't know what you've tried to do thus far other than what you've mentioned above, but if you haven't tried it already, I'd suggest running BoX without OTT and see what happens. I realize you don't play / run IL2 this way, but it might be the only way to isolate where the ...

Re: This weekend

I can completely understand the frustration Silk. I was playing DCS a few days ago and didn't realize that I had mapped a button to Discord for voice chat - every time I hit that button (which was the TDS disengage button, which you tend to hit frequently) the Discord overlay window would pop up and...

Re: Feldwebel Fritz leaves Kalach

I’m not up to scratch on your background, did you fly F/A 18’s for real or in another virtual squadron? Oh no... I've never flown a real F/A-18. It was with Jane's F/A-18E years ago with a Virtual Navy I was a member of. We had a collection of 4 squadrons (2 of Janes F18, 2 of Falcon 4.0) and did a...

Re: Feldwebel Fritz leaves Kalach

Yes, good points - and that's how they countered my rebuttals. Technically, I wasn't the mission lead; I was just flying lead in formation at the time. But yes. I fell asleep enroute to a target. :P

That was what I always retorted with when it was brought up later. :Wink Having said that tho, I think they stayed in form...

Thanks all! Looking forward to getting into the Ops on Sundays - and a big thanks to Merlin for the OTU flights. I'll make sure to get all the skins installed tonight. - If you do anything exceptional make it a good one or they will never let you forget it. Heh - yes. Those exceptional things that f...
