« Last post by AKA_Ramstein on March 23, 2019, 10:02:22 am »
Basically, for veterans and the disability claim process for submitting claims for injuries caused and aggravated by active duty. The failure of the VA.

this may not interest non-vets...

I can now have more access to my controls.... through the keyboard is best for me.....

I took my controls setting in IL-2 BOX and worked on them

I took some settings and removed my joystick settings... and only use axis for the joystick and pedals settings,, the rest I take and put in my Saitek profile,, now they work properly,, they screwed up the ability to use some functions when I used the joystick directly in the settings...

attached photo (examples, not all, but a couple snapshots for examples) of how I use them

Virtual Reality / Some 2019 VR Developments to keep an eye on

The actual reviews will be interesting to read.  May need to save my monies.

The new Oculus Rift S is due out as well, but not sure it will be much of an increase for those that own one now.  If you don't this might be a consideration.

ANd the HTC Vive Focus Pro - THis is a stand alon (Like the Quest) so not sure that it will run flilght sims.

And another interesting progression.  If this tech comes to other HMDs, WATCH OUT!

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Re: question about IL2 series
« Last post by AKA_Big10 on March 23, 2019, 09:29:27 am »
I believe we are waiting for the Tempest, 262, P-38, and P-51.
The rest have been released. If buy now you will still get the 2 Collector planes which is worth it.

I am really enjoying the P-47 and the Spit. The D-9 is a beast as well.

It's worth it too me

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Re: 3/22/ Friday night fun

No not at all Grey, it added a cool perspective as you were a little higher. Lol these planes bounce so much.

VR has helped my formation sklls greatly. Really get a feel for all factors of flight.

Formation flying is fun but all has to be on the same page. The callouts help a lot to keep it nice and tight.

I want to get at least 5 p-47s in a nice V or staggered V on film

Had a lot of fun with the formation flying otw to Target and landing. Big 10 & Mo you guys fly real well in formation, I am so jealous of the way you guys can do that in VR. Makes me want to upgrade my system so I can go out and buy a VR headset.

I was really impressed with how you guys worked together and called out even your most basic moves verbally. Flaps Full, Gear Down, Add Power, Idle etc.

Glad that by me jumping into your landing formation I didn't screw you guys up. Also Big 10 your bouncy landing was nothing compared to mine.

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Re: question about IL2 series
« Last post by AKA_SilverDevil on March 23, 2019, 05:27:53 am »
So I was looking at the series again and see I have 3 of the 4.

Battle of Moscow
Battle of Stalingrad
Battle of Kuban
Battle of Bodenplatte

How mature is Bodenplatte? I see it has some cool planes. How many are available at the moment?

I want to be quite honest that since you all seem to play games at 630 west time. This is usually too late for me as I am east time. Does anyone ever play earlier on weekday or weekend days? I get up for work at 0445 and by the time 2130 rolls around I am pretty over everything except the couch.
