Re: Last night

The decision was taken out of my hands by a massive Windows auto update which took 1.5 hours and now puts me on version 2004. Still have the problem of having to reinstall the NVIDEA drivers after every time the pc is turned off, but it runs well enough.

Re: Last night

Thanks for the advice Mothy. I am running 1909 and I had hoped that allowing windows update would be enough.

I'll look into a fresh install, though I am reluctant to mess around too much.

Re: Last night

Yes there was an error message at first
Dx****[[ not found or somesuch. Which is why I thought it was a direct x error which updating windows would fix.

Later it just would not load

Re: Last night

Yeah got it sorted all right, no problem. Sent off my Forum post, tweaked the graphics how I like and guess what? Would not load!!! Neither would DCS so it's got to be the machine not the program right? Found the latest drivers Nvidea 446.14 loaded them up and it works again, wot a clever boy I am! ...

Last night

As those of you who were on last night will know I had problem getting il2 to run. Despite it seemingly working ok before joining silks server when it all went tits up after that. Thanks for the advice Silk even though it didn’t work! This morning I did a windows update and it now works perfectly - ...

Re: GPU or CPU

The GPU load is 100% in the MSI Kombuster test, so presumably the CPU has some grunt left in it. I think it's possible to overclock it even more. Edit: !00% was the first test, in the Furmark test it was only 99% at 2560x1440 and I cannotb get it to test at 3840x2160. Edit: Oh and the existing GPU i...

GPU or CPU

I am speculating on trying to fly the FW campaign in VR. I suppose because I really should try get into VR and the FW cockpit experience really is dramatically different in VR. However the Graphic experience is not good with my existing set up. So do I upgrade the GPU (GTX1060 3GB) or the CPU( i5-35...

Re: Welcome Guests.

Hi Nick,

I'm just one of the squaddies but I saw your post. One of the "Top Brass" will get back to you shortly I'm sure.

Once they have put down their Gin and it's that is!

Nvidea Control Panel

Hope springs eternal. Fresh from my reinstall necessitated by my Reshade debacle.I came across the fact that Nvidea have a new version of control panel out. Three features caught my eye. First they have incoprperated a version of reshade in their settings -not going there ! Second something called s...

Re: Is my track IR broken?

Solved it!

After uninstalling and re installing several times, I tried loading version 5.4.0. Worked straight away. Been running 5.4.2 for 4 years now, so I dunno what went wrong.

BTW there is no light at the back.

Is my track IR broken?

Well it's certainly not working. The set up screen does not load. I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no effect and I am now wondering if the camera is broken. When I plug it in I seem to remember that it lights up at the back to indicate that it is receiving power, but it doesn't do that any more...

Re: Any throttle recommendations?

I have the T master Throttle which coincidentally I bought to replace a X52 Throttle. It's a value for money piece of kit and it has served me well. Probably the CH products are easier to operate and better laid out and better made though 50% more expensive. What I do miss is the easy to program Sai...

Re: VR hints and tips

I downloaded the MIgoto 17.1 file, I was expecting an executable file which you would install and then have option menus, but it just seems to be a collection of files, presumably to be copied somewhere. I think it is the background shimmering and not being able to glance at the instruments almost u...
