  1. Hey guys, I am still over on DCS 1.5.8 and enjoying it tremendously with very high frame rates (150 - 170 fps average) on some of my 'home brew' 8 vs 8 missions (Mig-15bis / F-86F). Using a 144hz/1ms monitor and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 graphics card with only 4GB on the card and 16GB RAM. How are things going over on DCS 2.5.1? [May 4th 2018 update: Have put together 12 F-86 jets vs 12 Mig 15 jets over Gudauta missions on the Mission Editor - getting mid 100 fps frame rates even with 24 aircraft in the sky. (Make sure to select an 'excellent' wingman AI!). Is the SeaQuark

  3. Guys, I am a newbie to DCS and still on DCS 1.5.8 and am having a great time with high FPS (120s to 170s) on my new Dell 27inch/144hz/1ms/G-Sync monitor. Using Mission Editor to build air to air missions of 6 V 6 fighter combat, etc. with no stuttering, lag, screen tearing etc. Mig-15/F-86 game play is really good and I am anxious to join up with you guys on DCS 2.5. I was flying on some of the Multiplayer Servers and still had FPS counts in the low 100s FPS....I am using a hardline cable connection to my Router. (Perhaps we should all be mentioning which Router and connection (wireles
  4. Please mention which PC Gaming monitor that you guys are using, Mhz speed, refresh rate, etc. I would start with a monitor that can do all of the following: (it has made a world of difference in FPS): In March 2018, I upgraded from my original 24 inch ASUS 60Hz monitor to the Dell S2716DG ‑ 27" LED Monitor ‑ WQHD. Bought it on sale at BBuy for $469.00 but I also bought a second one for my wife for $399.00 through Dell.com (Dell had a very short time limited sale at their website about a week ago). Highly recommend this monitor for single monitor players. I am still on DCS 1.5.8
  5. This will be really exciting and provide some very interesting missions. Fighter pilots will have to protect the Komets takeoff and landing fields from enemy fighter aircraft who would try to shoot them down on their glides and landing approaches (similar to Me-262 jet stories). It looks like it will be really fantastic to fly the simulation. If nothing else, it will be a great 'trophy plane' to add to my aircraft stable and to design offline missions for it through the Mission Editor! Well done! Salut!
  6. For Igor, family, and friends: Thank you for this gift of flight simulation. This DCS World has made a big difference for me in virtual flight experiences and enjoying the flight camaraderie of so many people who love this simulation. You and your team members made DCS World the finest flight simulation in the world and it is a real privilege to continue flying here on you and your team's behalf.

  7. Perfect Monitor! Mitthrawnuruodo, I followed your advice on getting a new monitor and I couldn't be happier! I've upgraded from my original 24 inch ASUS 60Hz monitor to the Dell S2716DG ‑ 27" LED Monitor ‑ WQHD. Bought it on sale at BBuy for $469.00 but I also bought a second one for my wife for $399.00 through Dell.com (Dell had a very short time limited sale at their website about a week ago). Highly recommend this monitor for single monitor players. I am still on DCS 1.5.8 and it plays beautifully both offline and online (with the few multiplayer servers still over on 1.5.8.). Wa
  8. Your information really helps! Really appreciated! Thanks again. I will look at updating the monitor and hopefully the graphics cards prices will stabilize...
  9. DCS 2.5 Gaming PC Monitor question: Looking at this monitor for upgrade- ASUS ROG SWIFT PG279Q 27" 2560x1440 IPS 165Hz 4ms G-SYNC Eye Care Gaming Monitor with DP and HDMI ports. [Note: this monitor is set to 144Hz. 165Hz is achieved by a few customization options] ($750.00 U.S. Dollars). 'Eye Care Gaming'?? Really? Sounds like a marketing item... -Current Monitor is a 24 inch Asus 60Hz. Purpose of monitor and PC is only to fly DCS 2.5 in the future....I am committed! (My mom had me tested. :-) -My current computer below (purchased already built): Lenovo Y900 Desktop tow
  10. cichlidfan, Understood and appreciated. I will let things settle out for a few months and see how the DCS 2.5 stable (when it comes out) runs on my current PC setup. Thanks again for the comments and advice. I saw that some guys are going for a clean straight download of DCS 2.5 (Open Beta), vs upgrading their DCS 1.5.8 versions...claiming some bugs or something in their upgrade downloads--not sure of their facts. Maybe I should do a simple, clean download of DCS 2.5 stable when it comes out? I've only been flying the F-86 and Mig 15bis right now.
  11. Mitthrawnuruodo, Clear, concise comments--thanks very much for the great response to my questions and concerns! Really appreciate it. Want to download the DCS 2.5 stable when it comes out and play on Multiplayer Servers at the standard 1920 X 1080p resolution level for now as I learn more about computer gaming, graphics, etc. The Monitor advice makes great sense too!
  12. February 22, 2018. My question: Should I spend the money to upgrade my current PC computer’s RAM, Graphics Card, PSU, CPU, etc. or just buy a pre-built with a NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1080 TI graphics card and all the support hardware already installed—to play DCS World 2.5 for five years? Any reputable pre-built PC companies that you can recommend would be helpful. I’m not a tech dude. I realize no graphics card or pc system will play all the time at 60 FPS – a benchmark for reasonable play. I am a new DCS World player. I just want to play DCS World 2.5 and beyond on multiplayer (mo
