  1. Just filled out my form! I was a little worried about waiting almost a year to get these. But the Form Reply indicated a goal of 60 days!! I'm hoping this is correct and things are speeding up with the new resin cases.. "Thank you for Preordering PointCTRL. You will receive a PayPal invoice when your order is ready to ship. We are currently starting production for PointCTRL Version 2, and our goal is to have all preorders shipped within 60 days. Thank you again for your support and patience. The PointCTRL Team"
  2. When I try to Create Fast Mission on the Marianas or Channel map I click FLY and it scrolls up to 8% and the scrollbar disappears. And that's it. No mission loads. I cann fly Instant Action missions on these maps though. Also, when I clicked ADVANCED MODE on the Channel map there were no airfields to pick from. I had updated to the latest version today. I don't have andy mods installed. Did a full Repair (Long method), and deleted extra files that it found. dcs.log
  3. I think you need to add your DCS log at least when reporting bugs. A track also would be nice. I had the same problem ignoring my bug report. But I can't really blame them. I just haven't had the time yet to do that.. Here's the Bug Reporting Guide.
  4. Has this been put on the bug list? I just tested it after installing todays patch, and this bug is still there..
  5. Well, after several hours of research, I tracked down the source of this VR bug. It was my Monitor settings. I have a Triple-Screen setup, and have my Monitor Settings se to '3 Screens'. If I change it to '1 Screen', this problem goes away!! Before this update I have not seen this problem. How do my Monitor settings have anything to do with rendering VR? I'm guessing that they forgot to ignore those settings when rendering the image in VR.. Hopefully an easy fix?? But, on my system, in VR, with the settings set to VR settings, I am only getting 30fps!! My i9-10850 5ghz cpu; RTX 3080 gpu; 64gb Memory; and M.2 should do much better than that!! I was testing on the P-51 Channel Free Flight mission.
  6. I've tested my Reverb G2 with DCS and IL-2 GB and they both work ok. DCS seems like the FPS are low. But IL-2 does not have this triangle in the HMD. This is only in DCS. Does anybody know how to fix this?? PS: Could a Mod move this to the View Systems forum? I was looking for a VR forum, and couldn't find one, so I put it here..
  7. This picture is from the left eye. So I have two of these(one on each side. Like vampire fangs... What is this and how do I fix it?
  8. I think the main problem you may need to solve is how to keep them the same distance from your screens all the way down. But since it's bending the light away from the bezels, you could slide something between the bezels to push or hold them out, and it would be mostly hidden with the bezels.
  9. Hmm.. well, you've already spent a bundle on your system. I'd buy 2 kits and try to combine them somehow (tape at first?) and you could definitely get something working. But you can't move your monitors around or it's fubar.
  10. I bought the ASUS Bezel-Free kit a few months ago, hoping they would work. Even though my specific monitors were not listed in their recommended monitors list. And the angle of my monitors also did not match their specs. I did have to mod them to work for me. And they are expensive for being plastic. But I am really happy I got them. Opinions may vary, but I would be either looking at 3/4 inch black bezels, or this. (I have mounted the side monitors bezels behind the center monitor's bezel to hide their bezels, giving me a smaller overall bezel to be seen between the monitors. This does cause some lines not to line up. But it's a trade-off with all of this anyway.) When I got this kit, the plastic was about 4 inches wide, and would be too large of an image adjustment. So I set them up so I could see they were too large, but if I cut a bit off of each side(the center of the strip bends the image left and right. So you have to cut them from the sides and keep the center part.) While they were on my screens I judged exactly where I could cut the sides off to hide the bezel from view as I sat in my chair. I ended up keeping about 1.5 inches, or 3/4 inch on each side of center. The cutting was tricky as the plastic was easily chipped or cracked. I started with some tests on my bandsaw, and just cut a little bit off the side to see how it worked. I ended up leaving the protective film on that covers both sides, and clamped the plastic between two boards for stability as I cut. I also put a fine cut blade on my bandsaw. The result was acceptable, and I did a tiny bit of sanding with fine grit. Then, when I was 'done', I realized they would not fit in the clamps that came with the kit. But that is an easy fix. Just find some way to mount them.. I just cut some wood to wedge in to the clamps to hold them. But any solution that works... And I much prefer the result, better than black bezels. There are lot's of good and bad reviews out there. But I think the bad reviewers didn't want to make them work, or maybe they didn't work at all for them. But they were way off for me from the start, and I made them work to my liking. This is the right side. You can see at the top where I had a little accident and cut into the plastic a bit too far. You can also see it above. But I'll live with it... I had to cut some blocks to match the contour of the monitors joint and hold the plastic out, into the correct position.
  11. BTW, I can build a mission with The Channel map and it works. And I can fly a Quick Mission and that also works.
  12. I updated to 2.7 Beta the other day, and after that I decided to take advantage of the sale. So, I bought the Veggin and The Channel Map. When I try to Create Fast Mission' using 'The Channel Map', it starts generating the mission and then goes back to the Main Menu. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the map. I have also repaired the install twice. I have no mods installed. And I have tested Caucaus, Normandy, and Nevada maps with no problems. Attached is my dcs.log. The mission generator crashed to the Main menu at 13:32. That is the last log line written for the mission generator before it crashed. As you can see, I then exited DCS at 13:37. 2021-04-16 13:32:51.828 INFO LUA-MISSIONGENERATOR: getNodes: Coalition :2, hasAirdrome = 0, num nodes = 0 2021-04-16 13:37:46.172 INFO EDCORE: (dDispatcher)enterToState_:5 dcs.7z
