  1. THANK YOU so very much - I knew I was missing it, as it seems things have changed over the years it was hard to work out what was what. Again thanks, owe you one!!!
  2. Forgive me as I think this has been addressed but I'll admit my dumb @ss is still rather confused. Let me make it simple. I installed via Steam Bought some planes and maps via Steam I now realize that DLC is released for standalone a good deal before Steam so I'd like to convert somehow (really want to fly the Christen Eagle II) It seems, from what I can tell, that once you buy anything via Steam you're pretty much screwed and stuck there - is that true? When I ask for CD Keys in Steam I only see the F15 and A10, nothing for my other items (F18, Persian Gulf map). So are we stuck
  3. So almost 2 months ago I opened a ticket about major issues I was having. In short every 3-4 seconds I get a "stutter", the game pauses for a second, dropping a number of frames. I play in VR and if you've used VR you know how important a smooth framerate is. I've spent easily 40 hours trying to fix it. I've done everything, and I mean everything that I and anyone else could think of. Think I'm exaggerating, have a read here. https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=176326 If you didn't read I've stripped everything down to 1 monitor, keyboard and mouse. No VR, no triple screens, n
  4. Just thought I'd update everyone so you know how truly terrible ED support is. The last response I received was from Konstantin Kharin OVER 3 WEEKS AGO. That reply was I've bumped the ticket 5 times since then as they now won't reply to me. It's been over 6 weeks since I opened the ticket and I've easily spent 50 hours or more troubleshooting, searching, asking questions, contacting support, etc. Apparently I paid $60 for that privilege as I certainly didn't get to enjoy it in any way. If support happens to see this please, PLEASE help me resolve this. -Ross
  5. That was in response to me asking several times for them to put me in touch with someone who could give me a refund. I don't know if the response means they'll give me a refund soon or if they'll have someone who can do that reply to me. Either way this has gone on for WAY too long and I just want my money back. Given this experience with them I have zero interest in either waiting for 2.5 or in spending another dime with them. I've been more patient than I think any normal customer would be. I've posted 14 updates/questions to the support ticket and they've replied to me 3 times, each
  6. Well a bit of good news - oh, not that news something else. As ED has no suggestions, really at all, they just replied and said to be patient they are working on it. I asked to clarify but from the thread of the tone I'm sure they mean issuing me a refund. Assuming they do that I have to give them a ton of respect and will plan to try the game in the future. Few game companies would issue a refund 6+ months after a purchase so color me impressed.
  7. And yet again failure. Tried moving the temp drive just to see and nada, same exact issue. I hate to keep saying it but I just have to give up at this point as I've spent at least 20 and likely far more hours trying to get DCS playable and can't make it work. While I have a good amount of time to play I don't have this much and would rather spend my time playing games instead of troubleshooting them. I do appreciate all your help AtaliaA1, too bad we haven't been able to get this to work for me.
  8. AtaliaA1 - thank you so much for your replies and attempts to help. You're exactly right that at this point everything suggested has been tried. I'm not surprised others haven't read the other thread, while I have done a great job of keeping everything I've tried, and failed, in the original post so it's easy to read people just don't click on such things. As such they'll try to help with somewhat simple suggestions that have been tried LONG ago. I've now asked for a refund for a second time as support dismissed that and then asked if I could make videos showing the issue, again somethin
  9. Sadly I'm now at the end of this journey. Spent over 2 hours last night trying the new suggestions and trying to dig through log files, etc. to find anything wrong that could be the cause - and nothing. Very few random errors in the Windows logs, not in any way related. Have confirmed CPU isn't parked or throttling, etc. After the 2 hours I played the following with these results - Doom 2016 - 5760x1080 (3 monitor), 100+ fps with everything maxed - Overwatch - 1920x1080 (they don't all triple), 150+ fps - Descent Underground in VR - 90 fps constant, all maxed (Rift VR wants 90 fps to
  10. Thanks, in cases like these I try to point out that I do know what I'm doing to hopefully avoid the simple "did you reboot" suggestions but at the same time don't want to come off as conceited. While SSDs make this far less important than in the past running in RAID 0 (striped) can effectively double disk IO. In a striped array the OS/hardware can read from one drive while writing to the other. While that's not an exact doubling of speed it can add real world benefits. The biggest downside is one drive goes and you're screwed. You can do RAID 10 where you have 2 mirrored disks stri
  11. Well I finally got a reply from support, here's what they said: I replied that if they mean the Windows temp folder yes, I've tried it on another SSD and HDD with no results. If there is an in-game temp folder no, as I don't know what/where it is. I also requested that at this point they help me get a refund from Steam as after spending more than 10 hours troubleshooting a game that I've not gotten to play more than a few minutes of is pretty unfair. Corsair 1000 Watt modular, can't remember the exact model at the moment but a rather nice one that's way more power than I need
  12. Ha, don't worry my friend, of course I do. I've worked in IT for 20+ years so I know what I'm doing there. That said I always backup "data" and not the entire drive, that way if/when I rebuild I just restore the data rather than the whole machine so I get the benefit of a fresh install and not just restoring the old build. Either way we're talking a minimum of say 4 hours of work to test out a long shot to get 1 game working. Remember that when I built my current install I did exactly this - I installed Windows then DCS first and tried it, same problem I have now. That's why I don't expec
  13. I'm 99.9% sure neither are true but I'm not sure how to prove or test it. First, bad card - as I've said several times I can play more than a dozen other AAA titles with absolutely no issues whatsoever. I have to think that if it was a bad card that it would be manifesting itself in other ways. I can't sweat I had these issues on my last card, the last gen Titan Z, I'm pretty sure I did have them. I'm also unsure how to test this, I don't have another card I could drop in and with all other games/benchmarks work great I just can't see how this could be the case. Thermal Throttling is a
  14. Interesting idea as you're right, I haven't touched or considered anything sound related. And while that is definitely a long shot as you say we're looking for long shots at this point. I'm wondering what would be the best way to go about testing this idea. I suppose I could disable all my sound devices and see how it flies then. My machine does have a number of sound devices: 3 HDMI displays (all have speakers) - disabled Motherboard sound - enabled, 5.1 output to my speakers SoundBlaster USB card to run my Butt Kickers Oculus Rift headphones and mic - used for Discord/voice chat
  15. First thanks again for taking your time to try and help, it's very appreciated. Now to answer your questions: I'm using the "Instant Action" from the main screen. I'm in an A10-C and think I remember the mission being in Georgia USSR? If you watch the video you'll see that CPU load stays constant when the stutters start/happen. In both VR and without the max CPU load is 35% Not exactly sure what you mean here but actually framerate should be 90 rather than 45. Using ASW you can lock the framerate to 45 in mode #2 but I use mode #4 which only uses ASW when dropping fr
