    The Hurry Cane

    Sep 14, 10:30 It just sitting over Wilmington, SC and beating the hell out of the city. Good luck, guys. Be careful. Fine a way to holler at me if you need me.
  4. Going VR requires your game to generate two screens from two different aspects. This is almost like running DCS twice at the same time. Your first priority is the GTX. Go for the fastest you can pay for. I don't think the 970 can qualify to run VR. Next: Memory. Finally, the CPU. DCS is extremely CPU intensive. Nevertheless, for VR, the graphics card is the most critical. Do not get two cards. SLI is dead for DCS. There are tests you can run to see if your rig can support VR. I get pretty good frame rates using just a 1060 and Trackir but my rig fails the Oculus system test. Also, keep in mind that VR will be more prone to promoting Motion Sickness compared to Trackir type head tracking devices. I'm sure there are electronics stores in your area that have VR demos of low-res games. Spend at least 4 or 5 minutes immersed to see if you are susceptible to this health issue.

    Late availability

    Not sure if I can be there. But, I'll try. My TS/SRS will have to be nonexistent because wifey sleeps with her ears open or something. But I can listen.

    Radio detection and ranging

    Thanks, Redd. Most of this I already knew but it still confirms for me such things. The only things I didn't know was the vertical scan and the wide acq scan are limited to 5 nmi. The only thing I really wish we had was a fast center of the cursor. Oh, well...

    DCS and SRS updates

    I just updated the other day to 5.3.6. Geez.
  9. Earlier this morning (7 sep 2018) I tried to log into the server. It locked my DCS completely solid. I had to kill the process to get out. I tried again and got the same thing. I tried sever more times throughout the morning (I don't recall the times, but the last on was near 8 am or 8:30 somewhere). I did some chores and hit this forum. I'll check again, later. Edit: I had logged into other servers sucessfully.

    CVW-11 VR Plat Camera

    Guys, I can't tell you how much value there is to having an LSO critique the traps (or lack of them). It takes DCS waaay beyond game level.

    Sig pics

    Thank you. I guess my "remembery" is beginning to fade in my old age. I get the one for Mac, right?

    Sig pics

    Can someone please tell me where plague made the post with all the new sigpics? I've looked everywhere for them... except where he actually made that post.

    DCS and F/A-18C Updates

    Yeah, I asked elsewhere. I have not updated yet, either. Waiting for the first penguin to jump in.

    DCS and F/A-18C Updates

    I updated Wednesday but was told to hold off on Friday's update of DCS as it seemed to break stuff. Last night I launched and got the "Do you want to upchuck" and said no. Later, I didn't even get the question, just went straight to the login. Any more news on the latest? Did they pull the last update or something?

vVMFA-251 is a virtual DCS World F/A-18C squadron flying the Belsimtek/Eagle Dynamics F/A-18C module exclusively. We focus on real-world tactics as best we can within the DCS Wold environment.

vVMFA-251 is not your run of the mill DCS World squadron.
