  1. Same here Don, it takes a lot of movement but I do like popping the F18 hornet canopy off when dogfighting sometimes and the sounds when merging and the other jet sounds are really cool.
  2. It’s true it’s about the hardware. I heard about all the great updates that was coming down the rail from E D about 10 months ago and I was on a i9-9700K @4.5ghz and a rtx2080 Super running mid setting with the G2. Looked like scotch tape on the lense could find the clarity. When I upgraded to an i9-10900K @4.9-5.0 ghz and a 3090 made a world of deference honestly. I’m now running high settings in both game and steamvr “ with speed of heats guide” the clarity has now settled in. Also vroptician lenses made a big change too. The clouds was the only disappointment. But I can live with it. If possible get a 3090 and let her rip.
  3. Many years ago I use to play Novalogic games like the Mig29 Fulcrum and F16- F22 Lightning 3 and my favorite Comanche Gold, those were some fun days. I looked in one of my closets the other and forgot had 3 MSFF2 sticks. Those were the best sticks for these games back then. I was wanting to use one for maybe flying helicopters or maybe the Apache when it comes out. When I first started DCS April 2020 I used the msfs2 and was amazed the it worked with DCS. I have always loved that stick with the arcade flying games. Do these stick have any value to them these days!
  4. In the G2 box there is paperwork that came with the product there is a sheet with several support numbers. May have to call one of them to get to your region.
  5. Oh great well that kinda good to know. Yes the pedals are centered thats what throws me off. I will do some test alittle later and maybe try a few different jets. I mean I can live with it and its all good in the air I just wanted to make sure the pedals are okay and/or recalibrate them. Thanks !
  6. I just got some new rudder pedals, Thrustmaster TPR's and not quit sure if the TPR pedals are out of calibration. So I'm on the runway and rolling along and noticed the jet veers to the right and I'm having the left tap the brakes alittle to stay center. Is the normal for the Hornet or you think I may have to recalibrate the pedals. Now in the air the rudders are Left-0 Rt- 0. Its noticeable after landing.
  7. I came straight to the last page on your post to give my honest opinion. I mainly BFM-Dogfight and I must say that the Tomcat is one of the best in DCS. I switch between the Hornet and the Tomcat frequently. Once you have put the time in with the Tomcat you will definitely enjoy it. But hard to say which one I like the best really... I love them both.
  8. Way better than the Discovery Channel for sure !
  9. I have no probs in 2d but it needs work for VR. It’s not unplayable in VR but would love to see and feel it run like The Caucus Map-Persian Gulf. It’s a beautiful Map tho!
  10. Just a question are you running monitoring software in the background? I use to run msi-afterburner-fpsvr and steam while running the DCS. I noticed a big improvement with my rig when just starting DCS , everything’s loads automatic. steamvr beta-wmr and then dcs. I don’t know what changed or maybe I was doing all wrong but I have been starting DCS like for a couple of months now and it just runs so smooth. As I said I don’t have any monitoring software running in the background only when an update comes out I will run Steam and fpsvr to check the graph and numbers.
  11. Smooth sailing on my rig. Also running the new nvidia driver too. I do see a few graphic bugs here and there. But no spiking going on with fpsvr which I always run after updates but don’t really use it anymore being that my tweaking is finally done.
  12. Maybe shutting down windows notification feature. As said above it also could be wmr beta, I went back to wmr non beta a month ago because I all of a sudden it started being unstable and it helped opting out of wmr beta.I’m still on steamvr beta. Definitely order you the new Rev. 2 cable too.
  13. I Alt + Tab alot , when I lose the mouse/ windows out of focus< I ALT-Tab twice and usually comes back. But yeah its alittle aggrevating but just gotta take what it gives you. MSFS is having alot of issues too so not much of a perfect VR world yet in DCS ... But yeah they fixed alot and especially the Tomcat Freeze so I'm happy for what it is now I can live and enjoy it as I have no futher issues with DCS/G2 I'm getting great, smooth performance. Good enough for me. But yeah I hope the mouse issue gets fixed which I'm sure it will.
  14. Rgr confirmed got home from work went straight for my rig and booted it up got a beer came back held button down for 3 second and HP light powered off. Thank Sr. !
  15. I noticed last night when I was done flying and about to shut down is that when I hit the new power button the headset light didn’t go off. I was in a hurry so I just shut my rig down. I was wondering if ya gotta hold the button down for a few seconds to get the HP light to turn off. Will test again this evening.
  16. just serial number and I also had an HP account and register my G2 on day one. No pics sent.
  17. Just received mine ! Great Customer Service and Communication. Alittle over 24 hrs ship time not bad at all HP ! I really like to power button, I go 2D mode every once in awhile especially on the weekend mornings with a few cups of coffee and practicing. No return notice either so I now have a backup cable. Highly recommend if your within the warranty envelope as said above thats a pricey cable.
  18. I guarantee you’ll see a difference. Great patience and congrats.
  19. Just wondering if you were to open task manager while dcs is running to see if something/app is turning on and off or like said above checking for updates. It wouldn't hurt to try. Maybe check internet connection/router.
  20. Cool deal I’m hoping that’s my case too…. Thanks ! Awesome ! I’m getting excited now like when I first got the G2.
  21. It's a free upgrade. I just got a message and mine is shipped .... But it looks like they may want the original/defective cable assembly back according to the email. So I'll probably be paying for it because I want to keep it for a backup.

  22. So where’s the power switch ?
