  1. Yea talk about the 3080 not CPU limits
  2. Typical silly a** answer
  3. I visit the most northerly area with a large estuary on the Channel Map, next to the generic terrain and am over a large city which I thought was London. However, I fly up what I think is the Thames and I cannot find the Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace , Trafalgar Square or any other landmark. Am I Lost ???:huh:
  4. Been using Pitool V261 and always used the Pitool automatic dowload function and things function OK. I see now that V262 is available from Pimax but not yet as a download direct from Pitool however a lot of folks seem very impressed with it. How should I go about upgrading to V262 on my own, please be specific as I'm not the most computer savvy. My rig: Win 10 V2004, 1080Ti with latest Nvidia driver, 32 Gigs, Pimax 5K+, Warthog Hotas, MFG Pedals

  6. FA18 Hornet Throttle Thruststmaster has an F18 Hornet replica joystick on the market and if WWII REPLIKA could make an F18 throttle with nearby switches, that would give us the ultimate realism in the cockpit.
  7. My headset and controllers never got delivered either but I submitted a support ticket to Pimax and received my full refund in 5 days. Don't fail to let them know when you have a problem, Pimax support has always solved any issues I've had in quickly and efficiently. Lots of complaining about them but too often the buyer doesn't ask for a solution.
  8. I have had my Pimax 5K+ for over a year and it continues to perform beautifully with excellent clarity. My rig is an i7-7700, 1080Ti, 32 gigs ram, and I always fly in VR. I have contacted Pimax support on several occasions and always received a prompt and satisfactory answer and I recently requested a refund on the lighthouses and controllers I had previously ordered and received my refund in 5 days. Looking forward to a new rig and the 8KX when Nvidia issues the 3080Ti.
  9. The previous DCS hotpatch actually helped The Channel Map in VR, but todays 6/17/20 hotpatch ruined everything and it appears to be worse than ever. 2D is OK but a disappointing DCS purchase for Beta users in VR.
  10. Darcwaynard, That was the problem, I had changed to unlimited fuel for a long flight and it set me up in the game mode and I didn't realize it. I knew it had to a simple fix and DCS is OK now. Many thanks for your response
  11. Since downloading the latest Beta Version. I cannot get the F18C to increase in speed, when flying. Using full throttle and checking the engines with instruments and the exterior view, they are both in afterburner but the plane just slowly decreases in speed and crashes. Air brake is off, flaps retracted, wheels up and flight is level. I have cleaned and repaired the Beta 3X and still no help. Throttle works fine in other planes and in the stable version of the Hornet.
  12. I had the same problem and to get a good VR view I set the GPU Catalyst to "0"
  13. When flying the Hornet and I press F-10 I do not go to the theater map and therefore cannot access the ADF or TACAN frequencies. Help with the location and how to access the freqs will be most appreciated.
  14. For carrier operations which of two, the Hornet or Tomcat is your FAVORITE and WHY
  15. Andrew, Point Control is impressive and seriously considering it now.
  16. I'm sure everyone is aware that you wouldn't buy a PIMAX even if it was guaranteed that the clarity was as good as a 4K monitor, 200+ FPS, a 360 FOV, headset light as a feather and perfect audio.
  17. I have a PIMAX 5K+ use it every day for flight simming in DCS and find the clarity very good without any noticeable SDE and the 200 degrees FOV makes looking around enjoyable and dogfighting much easier. Had the Oculus CV1 but never liked the scuba mask effect of limited FOV. Pimax is the only VR headset to have a large FOV.
  18. I use my 5K+ with DCS and IL2 Sturmovik and am very satisfied with the clarity, FOV and all around performance. Used a CV1 for years and the 5K+ is a big step forward. Watched lots of thru the lens videos and my 5k+ easily matches everything except the HP Reverb plus I get the big FOV which makes dogfighting so much easier.
  19. The latest Pimax Beta Update has some new features that I don't know what they are for or how to utilize them: Screen vertical offset adjustment function; RGB color adjustment function; Global Settings and Individual setting profile; If anyone can explain the function and and how best to use them it would be most appreciated.
  20. Don't worry about 90 FPS and not an expert on Pixels, Steam Vr or Pitool etc.etc.I just find where things are best for my rig and go with it. the only thing I know for sure is that the clarity and smoothness of the WWII DCS planes using my 5K+ HMD, since the recent updates, is really-really good!! i7-7700K, 32GB, GTX 1080Ti, Pimax 5K+, Thrustmaster Warthog Hotas, MFG Pedals
  21. I made a complete Pitool setup along with Steam VR when I first received my Pimax 5K+, to play I start Pitool, launch DCS from the Icon and steam VR starts in background. Every thing starts and flies well, no problems at all. i7-7700, 32 GB, GTX 1080Ti, Water Cooled, Thrustmaster Warthog Hotas, MFG Crosswind Pedals, Pimax 5k+
  22. Pitool just issued a Beta Upgrade to their software and it is a major upgrade and worth downloading.
  23. I have tried all the IPD setting from one extreme to the other and no help. IPD was never a problem with the Rift so eye symmetry is not the problem
  24. I have an optician measured 61.9 IPD that I used in my Rift setup for years and never encountered any focus problems at all. However when I input that setting or any other IPD setting with the 5K+ I cannot focus both eyes onto a single point. One eye will be sharp and the 2nd blurry, I move my head horizontally then the focus shifts with the 2nd eye clear and the first is blurry. I have tried moving the HMD to different positions higher/lower/to each side/tilting the HMD, purchased a 22 mm face mask to further increase the distance from the eyes, verified Pimax and Videa GTX1080TI s

I've read about this issue on the PIMAX blog but haven't found a solution. Has anyone encountered this problem or found a solution????????
