Do you know offhand if you are able to use the F5 view?

i have seen no mentions of restrictions on views. by the way only kidding on the I-16. i think many people are going with f15 because of the amount of ammo and the weight to power ratio. i was toying with idea of using f5. fun in bfm.

IRL i think it is probably no easier to take a pod off one aircraft and put it on another. more than just mounting it. but i am sure there is a lot to it adding / upgrading the software of an aircraft. i understand that DCS is doing a lot to make this happen. it truly is amazing. i ran across this. B52H. only one bomb. rabbit with an elephant gun.

IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 / problems with both 1946 and BoS on same system
« on: July 28, 2019, 12:10:19 pm »
hopefully someone has seen this. i cannot run 1946 after installing Bos. i have a feeling that it is something to do with video. when starting 1946 is just crashes. when i remove BoS all is well. odd.

i have steam for the base game and i did not seem to have any issues. are we talking about 3.102? the update was 1.3 GB?

hah big difference eh? how do you like how fast windows starts?  O0

download a program called windirstat. run it on C and look for heaviest folders and deem whether or not contents can be deleated. usually anything TEMP. uninstall what you dont use. then migrate. dont need to migrate a bunch of garbage. it will take less time obviously.

the most important issue would be to make sure the destination drive is same size or larger than the source drive. i am sure you have that covered. i have done this countless times with Acronis. my current computer is a refurb Alienware R6 that came with a 1 TB mechanical drive. i cloned it to a 1 TB SSD and then to a 2 TB SSD when space became an issue. good luck!

odd issue. without very much information try this

Go to Settings > Update and Security, click in Windows Defender on left tab and then click in Open Windows Defender Security Center

In new window, click in Protection from Virus and Threats > Virus and Threats Settings and TURN OFF Access to Controlled Folders.


Find OneDrive in the task bar and open it > Settings > Autosave > select "This PC only" from the dropdown menus.

blasto has a good point i had forgotten. when you stay at 1080 on a large screen your image will be bigger. meaning the plane you are spotting on a 24" running at 1920x1080 will be smaller than on a 32" running 1920x1080. almost 33% larger. but its pixel density is lower. so in theory less crisp.

another good article

there is a lot more to the difference that need to be considered. otherwise we would just all buy TVs right? i am not going to rehash these suggestions and let someone with internet presence to explain. after all there is only truth on the internet. technology has a patina of truth  O0

i have been in IT since pretty much ground zero and have seen a lot of changes. like i had said the difference between the two types has narrowed since 1987 when i started. i am only preaching caution. especially with gaming you will, IMHO, notice. and after all you are spending the money and have to deal with the choice.

I have had a 32 Samsung in bedroom for a while and picture is great. Keep in mind a TV and monitor are different though are nowadays closer to same specs. I personally believe a true monitor will perform better than a TV. Maybe I am old school. Check on refresh rates, etc.
