  1. Just an update. So far so good. No crashes even when I turn up all of the graphics options in both the VR and on the desktop video. Have been playing for several hours. I still have my fingers cross. Maybe after a month I will try running my system with the 3600 memory running at it's rated speed to see if the crashing returns. I will update this post to see how it goes.
  2. Thanks for the feed back so here's my update: For the first time, in several months, I did a full mission in multiplayer with no computer crashes! I'm hoping that this continues and I have my fingers crossed. I think I found the problem with the controllers and crashes. I think when I tried to import the keyboard profiles for just the UILayer and the General configuration sections, it wiped out the configurations for the controllers in the other sections. So, I just manually configured them and everything seemed to work this time, and all my previous hardware bindings w
  3. In the last several months I have built three separate computer systems to run DCS, two of them 1099K CPUs, and the third a Ryzen 5900x. In each case I have installed the Windows 10 Pro OS clean and only copied over my document, pictures, videos, music and downloaded directories. I purposely didn't copy the AppData, so that all of my software would install clean configurations. I have been building PC systems since the 90's and many of my systems that I built in 2000 are still running today as "Hand me down" computers. I have had serious issues with DCS crashing on the two Intel s
  4. This seems to be a problem with EVGA cards as I never had a problem with other vendor cards. Not sure why. BTW, I'm on my fourth RMA EVGA 2080TI, and I will never buy another EVGA card again due to all of the issues that I have been having with their products. BTW, I had this problem using the same EGVA 2080 TI on three separate computer systems two where Intel, and the third was a 5900x Ryzen system.
  5. I created a practice mission with a MIg 29 at 15,000 feet, and it took forever to lock it up. Once I locked up the Mig 29 with a soft lock, I switched the TWS mode to Auto mode and it immediately the radar was switched to 43,000 ft, breaking the soft lock. I then had to switch back to manual mode to relock the MIg 29. Note that the MIG 29 was not flanking, but was cold. Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong? Before the update, once I got a soft lock in TWS mode, I would switch to Auto mode to have the radar automatically keep the radar at the correct altitude while tracking
  6. Yea, I did a clean install. I been having this problem since March of 2020.
  7. When I run DCS using an OEM NVidia 1080 TI, I never have any crashes, but when I upgraded to an EVGA 2080 TI on March 2020, DCS crashes almost every time I run it, but if I run it as an Administrator it never crashes and runs fine. I am using the latest drivers on both the OEM 2080 TI, and the EVGA 2080 IT. All my games directories are located on my D:\Games folder Also, when the games crash to the desktop, there are no errors recorded in the Windows 10 application and system event logs. Note that this issues never occurred on my Alienware 51 (i9-7900x), until I replace
  8. OK, I figured out what broke everything. I reconfigured DCS WORLD to run as an administrator due to to it constantly crashing. Running DCS as an administrator seemed to fix this problem but caused the problem I posted above. What happened is that Both Voice Command and SRS are ran as administrators, but I never had a reason to run TrackIR as an administrator. So when I changed DCS to run as an administrator, it seems that this stopped TrackIR from modifying the keystrokes that were passed to it. The fix was to run TrackIR as an administrator. And so far everything is working.
  9. For an entire year, I had no issues with using voice attack to center my cockpit view while using Track IR and now it no longer works. In fact, even without using voice attack, I can't even center the cockpit view using the num5 key while TrackIR is running. The only way I can now center the cockpit view is when Track IR is not running which defeats the purpose of using TrackIR in the first place. Note that I had the trap option for the num5 key unchecked which allows Track IR to pass the keystroke to the next application. So, at this point, I can no longer play DCS World because
  10. So far the only modules that I am having issues with are the A-10C and A-10CII. My issue is that SRS is not recognizing my joystick presses when I am using these two modules, but SRS works perfectly when using other DCS modules such as the F-18C and F-16C. So I'm pulling my hair out trying to resolve this issue. What is weird is that SRS shows the correct radios in both the A-10C and A-10C II modules, and if I press the keyboard bindings of the radios, then SRS shows that the radios are selected and displays the TR letters next to the corresponding radio. SRS works on the multipla
  11. I plan on moving DCS to another computer and for each plane I exported out the Keyboard, Joystick, Rudder pedals, and the throttle profiles. I also exported out the profiles for the "General" and "UI Layer" sections. I know that I need to copy the DCS saved games folder over to the new computer. So when I run DCS, the profiles for the controllers will not exist due to the USB ID being different on the new computer, and DCS will create default profiles for my Keyboard, Joystick, Rudder Pedals, and Throttle. So, I'm assuming that once the hardware is plugged in, I clear the profiles for the Key
  12. I plan on moving DCS to another computer, and I don't want to have to remap the joystick buttons. Since this will be a new computer, the USB ID will be different. Is there a way to change the USB ID using the VKB software. I managed to find the USB ID in the registry, but there are too many instances of the ID to change it manually on the new computer. The Virpil software allows you to edit the USB ID within the configuration software, but I cannot find away to do this with the VKB Sim software.
