    Was the HUD recorder really an issue? I appreciate the attention to detail if real world drivers were removing it, but I barely notice it's there and I fly in VR full time.

          Cant get Jester to change radar ranges because the command isnt there to pick from on the wheel every now and then. The AIM 54 mk60 is hit or miss. I haven't tried the others today. Most of the time I have to get Jester to lock a target and break the lock to get anything hooked. Constantly Jester goes from TWS to RWS when its not asked for. Can we get the Jester commands to not move on the wheel or disappear? Can we get Jester to not go into a star wars loop of babble when in flight refueling? Still love the module. Will be back next patch.

              Possible memory leak. FPS is high (generally above 50) but periodically drops to bellow 20 for short periods of time, and then returns to normal. The dips don't last longer then a second.

              Not sure if introduced with the current patch, as i didn't flew long enough previously. Happened to me on two occasions with the F-14. Generally after about 40-60 minutes of flying. First time during the AAR Caucasus mission, and the second time, during a home made BVR one-on-one mission. Plugged into the F-16 and F-18, to see if i can reproduce in those planes too. So far negative. Maybe i need to fly them for a longer period of time.

              Oddly, swapping a plane seams to eliminate the stutters. Switched to the F-16 after the 2nd occurrence then back to the F-14. Everything went smoothly. No time to do further tests this evening.

              All the flights were in SP.
              Current modules:
              FC3, Mirage 2000C, Harrier AV-8B NA, F-5, AJS-37 Viggen, F-14B, Combined Arms, F/A-18C, F-16C, MiG-19P, F-86, FW-190A, Spitfire Mk IX, UH-1 Huey, Su-25, P-51PD, Caucasus map, Nevada map, Persian Gulf map......ah yes, forgot the Super Carrier! Shows you how often i fly these days....

                Copy paste from my other reply as sadly issue persist after recent update:

                Just stopping by to tell you that in non VR open beta (latest) is the same FPS issue - yes I tried everything, running on SSD as well. Every other module is fine on pretty much high settings. No matter what I change the FPS (gpu spikes) in F14 inside are horrific.
                From 60 fps to complete stop for a sec and back to 60.
                Lowering pit textures via mod not helping at this point, tried every other trick including messing with pagefile - no difference. Again, every other module works absolutely fine.


                Operating System
                Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
                CPU
                Intel Core i7 3930K @ 3.20GHz 48 °C
                Sandy Bridge-E 32nm Technology
                RAM
                32,0GB DDR3 @ 799MHz (10-10-10-27)
                Motherboard
                ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. P9X79 PRO (LGA2011) 33 °C
                Graphics
                2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB (Gigabyte) 52 °C

                I forgot to add, that from what I`m experiencing, and from what I read on other topics on the F14 performance, it must be something under the hood causing this, as its not the visuals. For example, same high settings, same dense scenery and planes like resources hungry MiG-21 loads fast and runs smoothly 40-50fps. F-14 is simply unplayable in the same environment.

                  Being able to remove the camera is neat; however, now in VR, the normal pointer cross changes to a larger green 'switch below' symbol which is a tad annoying. Perhaps make it an option rather than a in cockpit button?

                      Very surprising as I remember zero requests for the feature. I thought HB were talking about priorities here https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=285634
                      btw: My mouse pointer doesn't change when removing and mounting the camera - just the usual arrow.

                        Some features are added through communication with our SMEs. They'd regularly remove the HUD camera before landing.

                            OK, good to know. The camera actually helps me with the line up on a carrier cat

                              Press shift enter and bring up the joystick display. It also shows radar mode. When jester is in TWS Auto you can't tell him to scan manually. It would be nice to have him go back to yes manual if you know something is there tho, I agree

                                theyd take off with it and remove it in flight? if so that made me lol

                                    Good fun, as always!

                                    After jumping back in today to test it out, I find that I can no longer see contacts on the TID. As well, even in TWS Auto, Jester can't. I vectored myself in towards multiple bandits with the AIM-54 ready to go, but there was never a radar contact so Jester never locked anyone. It wasn't until it came down to WVR that he started calling stuff out.

                                    I was playing the Instant Action free flight, and it was the same problem on both Syria and Caucasus.

                                      The contacts on the free flight mission are all notching you, two of them are choppers. It takes significant maneuvering and radar work to get them on scope, I wouldnt read too much in to that. Try one of the BVR missions instead, see how that goes.

                                        I'll try out some other missions, but I know for sure that I was in multiple situations where I should have seen them. Like chasing down an AN-26 and coming up behind it. I intentionally did this with the F10 menu. Switching to RWS didn't help either, even within 10nm.
