Re: Weird graphics glitch

Some had that issue with 4k textures enabled. Try turning that off.

Re: How can I say this...

Here's what mine looked like after the kids knocked it over:

Steam VR and OTT

I had a quick play with settings today. My Steam VR had automatically set the default application resolution to 174%. My OTT setting is 1.1. The net effect is that I am running with SS at 1.914 (1.1 x 1.74) with no visual improvement. I used manual override (Settings > Video) to put the Steam VR res...

Re: Welcome Guests.

Thinking of signing up after Christmas (away from home a lot until early Jan) and wanted to get a better idea of what is required for OTU. Do you guys actually do training (spring chicken to shitehawk and all that) or is it more a test to see if your flying is good enough? Partly. A bigger part is ...

Re: Feldwebel Mantock leaves Kalach

Congratulations. Keep an eye on the assignments to see who you’ll be with, and make sure you have the skins because otherwise Bunny will be after you.

Re: Welcome Guests.

Hi T-Rex

see here - http://www.tangmerepilots.co.uk/recruitment.htm

To take part in official ops you have to get past OTU. During OTU you are more than welcome on a Tuesday or Friday evening from 20:30 GMT or so onwards.

You may well have seen just our server if you had mods enabled.

Re: Am I missing new pilots ?

Just a follow up on this. We tend not to make a big hoo-hah about new chaps because whilst we absolutely make them welcome them on comms, if they don't bother continuing, or are not quite up to scratch, or simply won't fit, we'd rather they had they impact of someone who was simply moved on from the...

Just watch out for them 5th staffel lot. They cover themselves in Russian mud, dance around naked then all cram into a single field tent. Then there is silence....

Re: Am I missing new pilots ?

Historically it was after AF1 but we had quite a few dropouts so I think we delay it slightly. Merlin will correct me if I'm wrong on this.

Updated as too many have game and forum names that are different.

That doesn’t bother me. I just like to do a ton of reading on the front end of my mounts before I jump into the cockpit.
Oh dear that might make you too intellectual for Bunny. We tend to just jump in and hare around until the engine pops.
