  1. Just a follow up, I was using the USB-c virtuallink port on my 2080ti for my headset, and that appears to be the culprit. I plugged my headset directly into the HDMI on the card and the USB3 on the PC and it works with the latest drivers, but it's crashing a lot. Does anyone else use the virtual link port on their card?

  2. In the documentary Tomcat Tales "Snort" talks about how there was a plan to integrate the AIM-120 with the Tomcat, but because the A-6 was phasing out and the Super Hornet was not yet available, there was a rush to fill that role and adding the lantern pod to the Tomcat was his task, and when he presented it to the brass, they asked him how they would pay for this upgrade. He had determined that the Tomcat upgrade to the AIM-120 would cost close to 1 Billion and making the Tomcat a bombing platform would cost about the same. So they scrapped the plan to add the AIM-120, and went with the lante
  3. If you want to see the immediate benefits of running the game in multi cores, just run a headless DCS server on your own system, load up one of the heavier AI missions. Run DCS then connect to your own server in MP it should run a lot better. I do it all the time it makes a big difference. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  4. https://www.etsy.com/listing/784635061/gear-falcon-general-purpose-joystick?ref=shop_home_active_5&frs=1&crt=1 I have 3 of these, they all have different IDs and never get mixed up on reboot, he's also stateside and very responsive to questions. He has a smaller version as well. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  5. You can ask Jester to select stations 2/7, and if you flip the acm cover you can jett the tanks yourself by pressing the button. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  6. I like mine quite a bit. If you're only using it for the Tomcat. You might find it limiting to use with the F-16, F-18 or any other jet that makes use of a large array of buttons. Being able to use the base with Thrustmaster sticks is a bonus. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  7. I use a refrigerator light switch Not elegant, but it works. It's actually signaling a button press until the guard goes up. This is used for my Tomcat ACM panel.
  8. After watching 'Tomcat Tales' it would be cool to put Jester in a mode that he would do altitude, G load and speed call outs for when you're doing aerobatics. And not be such a bitch on low passes. His speed call outs could warn you when you get too close to Mach 1. Silly but fun feature for when you're showing off for the virtual hotties.

  9. Latest Nvidia drivers 457.30 messed up the refresh rate on my Odyssey plus. I have a RTX2080ti and I started getting Error 13-14 which means it could not start my WMR at the refresh rate I set, which was 90hz. I could run it in 60hz but the flicker bugged the crap out of me. So I rolled the drivers back to 456.71 and it all works again. If anyone else has issues, give that a try.
  10. In short, yes. I'm working on the left side panel now. I use in VR so it doesn't have to look great. Looks like I need to add some fire suppression buttons on my acm panel. Will probably just do it like pinball bumper buttons
  11. I've noticed the connection cable from the TRudder pedals to the black box is starting to look a little frayed at the connection point, and I wanted to know if anyone knows of this is just a standard CAT 6 network cable? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  12. I don't know what will kill me first, a Mig-29 or my favorite football team.
  13. What one loser with a couple project boxes and a P-Touch Label maker can accomplish My crappy F-14 deskpit. It's ain't pretty, but it's functional and a reasonable approximation of the Tomcat switches and buttons solved the ACM switch cover with a refrigerator door light switch I plan on doing the landing gear/ fuel panel next, then maybe the radio It is refreshing to be in VR and reach out to find what you're looking at in the headset I would like to get a square switch cover for the NAV/TID witch, that would help with identifying the switch I'm touching while in VR
  14. I've been using a finger mouse for a while now. Once you get used to it, it makes interacting with the cockpit much quicker. I use it on my left index finger. Great for turning dials as well Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
