  1. I took a Playchair Air Force seat, stuck a Warthog throttle on the left and a VKB MCG on the right, VKB rudder pedals on the floor. Now I gotta pick a plane to start mapping stuff and learn how to use it.
  2. Sorry, MCG. I flashed it with the non-twist firmware though
  3. Gunfighter MKIII....it seems to work fine though. Think I got it. Had to relabel from JOY_RZ to JOY_RX.
  4. Both have their own black boxes. Not sure about 'calibration'. I clicked "start calibration" in the configurator but nothing seemed to happen. I did notice in DCS that it says "Joy_YZ", but when I look at it in Windows 10, it says "Axis X".
  5. I've finally got my stick and pedals flashed and showing up in DCS, but now when mapping stuff, I've noticed the rudder pedals don't exhibit any 'motion'. When I move the stick, I see the little white line move on the appropriate axis, but nothing on the pedals. Any ideas?
  6. I had my fiancé give it a whirl. While not much into computers/flying/etc. she did say her stomach felt it when the F-16 banked, etc.
  7. Well, not dumb per se but I did reach up to rub a smudge on the canopy.
  8. I have no idea what Re-Size Bar does, but I'll give it a whirl. LOL And I'll see about the axis. All of this is new to me, so I'm learning as I go along. LOL And I hang my tongue out and drool on a NORMAL day, let alone today.
  9. So I just finished getting SteamVR and the Reverb G2 set up and "flying" three times. Still a lot of work to do BUT OMG HOW F'ING COOL IS IT?!?!?! The cockpits in the A-10C, F-16C, and F/A-18 are absolutely mind blowing!!!! I also used the G2's controllers to successfully jettison my canopy and eject. LOL I am giddy, forgive me. Can anyone share some setting tips for WMR/SteamVR/DCS to get the most out of it? Ryzen 9 5900X/ AMD RX 6800 XT if that helps. I think I just defaulted to the DCS VR video settings. And I still need to figure out how to make my VKB rudder pedals work. They show up as a controller but I still gotta learn to map controls, etc. I am still giggling about this. Holy shit, what a hoot!!!! I like sticking my head completely out of the canopy, like someone took the family dog on a flight.
  10. I've have watched videos and read posts, and I'm still no closer to a decision. I've never used VR, hell, I've barely played DCS!! But I'm gonna get one of these two this weekend! In one sentence, tell me which one you'd get and why. Partial computer specs for the techies... Aorus Elite X570 mobo Ryzen 9 5900X AMD Radeon RX 6800XT
  11. Ooooooooo.....I did not need to see that PointCtrl thing. That looks like just the thing!! Thank you both for the input (no pun intended).
  12. Wouldn't using a mouse with a VR headset be a little problematic? Plus, I'm using a gaming chair with a HOTAS/rudder set up. Not sure I have a place for a mouse.
  13. So my PC is finally done, and I'm still trying to figure out which HMD to go with; Reverb G2 (I do love the eye candy) or Quest 2. I was talking with a coworker of mine who just got his Quest 2 a month or so ago, and he loves it. I brought up the question above, he says he keeps the hand controllers in his lap for when he wants to clickee/pushee. Is that how it's done? I thought (from watching videos) that there was a little crosshair in the center of your view and you'd look at the switch and hit something mapped to your stick/throttle.
