  1. Rizzo the Wizzo, from the Movie Grease, an appropriate time frame.
  2. Trans-oceanic shipping is nearly a bust at snails pace, there's limited air capacity due to the ship backlogs, that means extra costs. Can't blame them for waiting, its get in line pal, or pay off the troll.
  3. Disable UAC and get your windows back under YOUR control. They went way overboard with it in 11. https://winaero.com/windows-11-disable-user-account-control-uac/
  4. There's an option in steamVR settings that will grey out such disturbances, but the bad part is you may experience that while your flying if your frames have a sudden hiccup.
  5. What would be even neater is being able to switch master arm to training mode with an ACMI store, and watch a simulated missile that's not even on the rail guide off to target leaving a path marker, or fake bright bullets flying just like at the ACMI range screen.
  6. Get a powered PCIE expansion card, probably cheaper, and you and your devices won't go crazy with windoze chronically swapping controller numbers every time you have to reboot one by replugging.
  7. Open shell, https://nerdschalk.com/how-to-get-classic-shell-on-windows-11-via-open-shell/ bye bye cell phone carp. http://www.clocx.net/download.php If you can't stand a desktop without a clock and date.
  8. That's what a simulation is. However, your still going to have to invent that approximation, who's got that kind of time and investment to devote, and in the end probably get roasted over any future discrepancies and anomalies uncovered, there are still living witnesses. I don't believe for a second anyone's coming up with a 'close' approximation without the manuals in a system of that complexity.
  9. CAS, TAS takes in account wind drift which can be quite substantial at altitude, so no good for a limitation.
  10. I don't believe the problem is classification of information, the problem is it's bombing computation system was unique and a one off, one of a kind. If that information is no longer available, well, good luck with that. Even if you built it without the bomb system it wouldn't work since the system was married directly into most of the flight instrumentation.
  11. Best performance and resolution 1080 in WMR, if best performance don't work try switching between Let windoze choose and that. If your in low res your scaling is probably off and your getting a bad cross eyed effect. Pits will look lopsided slightly if you do a symmetrical compare, quite noticeable in big pits like the Huey.
  12. Take the wheels and swivel off the office chairs and you won't suffer these issues. Anyone using VR from a fixed seat knows this is utter bull crap.
  13. Most ignorant statement ever, there has never been equality, and never will, just a high horse some pretending to ride. Saddle up care'n Karen and ride it.
  14. Just had the same issue, there's one of the settings that causes the main menu to vanish in VR, rename your config folder in the saved games and it'll come back.
  15. Why would I post how to get rid of it when I'm using it just fine, even with DCS? Not going back.
  16. It's available now for free upgrade if your on windows 10, not on no insiders either. Installed win 10 on my new machine using my original license from win7, than did the ungrade to 11. Besides it wanting to turn your desktop into a cellphone seems OK, there's quick ways to get rid of that carp. You'll just have to search for a direct link.
  17. If your going to pay someone for doing nothing for you, than expect the production of nothing as a legitimate response.
  18. Be better off asking for CSAR frag orders generations within the new dynamic campaign. No reason an Apache couldn't be task to look for and pick up a missing SF trooper as part of their mission profile once in a while.
  19. If the pull for this had any strength at all MAC would have been a thing by now and based on that subscription model. This isn't good for us long term players who take frequent vacations for months or years at a crack but continue to follow, study, and buy the whole while, there's more of us than you'd think. Very few stay active the entire time in any game with this many years of longevity, and that longevity itself shows this business model is working for them as it is. Most of us keep coming back for the quality content and have proven we will always pay directly for great content.
  20. And lets not forget the elephant in the room, tactical nuclear delivery at Mach 2.0 plus air refueled from land or sea any weather any time. Nope, phantoms never made anyone sweat.
  21. G-2 from an odyssey, colors aren't quite as rich on the G-2, but close, the clarity you get will never match no matter what you do to an odyssey. Odyssey has the best cockpits ever with those rich colors and its close up clarity is not bad, but put on a G-2 and your suddenly flying heads out of the pit, occasionally scanning instruments. Gaining the outside world is well worth it. My rigs a bit less than yours but upgraded the card to 2070Super upon gaining the G-2. You can divide your frames in half to get a close estimate on how your G-2 will pull.
  22. And when they eventually do come around to imposing limits your probably not going to be able to see the extremes on your side panels no more, nor much of the hidden switches either. Say goodbye to easy engine starts, or relatively pain free emergency procedures in some of the jets. In the C-101 the pedals adjustment is nearly impossible as it is, and you can't advance some of the missions without adjusting them. F-10 is your friend, place your head where you think it physically should be, press it, than relax and return your body to your standard comfortable position, hit the recenter VR command, done. If your on a wheeled chair that swivels, even with limits your still going to suffer issues, this won't be the fix you think its going to be.
  23. The F-4J and S were not limited in their roles of fleet defenders, they were superior. The gun on the F-4E arrived so late and delayed it was a solution looking for a problem as proven in the stats above. Missile tech and reliability caught up to the problem rendering it mute, it wasn't all that great in an ACM gunfight since by design it was a high speed interceptor, and for its day wasn't all that bad, so it wasn't a place you ever wanted to end up in anyway. That gun cost a cutting edge radar set for Air to Air in that day which wasn't rectified till the Hornets set which was small enough to squeeze in fixed the issue. Till that happened the E had to get shoved aside to a ground pound role, and the D sat as the airspace defender till the very end. It may have been a great bomb truck, but it lost much of it's original intercept capacity with a radar downgrade, could have just as easily put the ground strike package in a D frame minus a gun and retained both roles.
  24. Don't use them, really don't care for them, nothing impressive or particularly eye catching about them, not as compared to the cockpits themselves. They don't look good close up as first person, however they do look OK when in other crew positions in some aircraft such as the Tomcat or even the older Huey. Maybe its the whole Ichabod Crane thing going on, where I'm missing my own head looking down my hollow neck.
  25. https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/16226/complete-guide-to-symbolic-links-symlinks-on-windows-or-linux/ Best bang for the buck is putting your maps on the separate drive, they're huge but all in the same folder. Than you have plenty of room for all the modules you can handle.
