If man was meant to fly, he would have been born with a lot more money!

Well I’m up and running only after a 30 min download/install. Now, it’ll take me an hour to configure my Warthog HOTAS to work with it... It really threw me for a “Loop” when I launched off the carrier and discovered my left throttle is configured to control the rudders... Happy flying!

Oh well, just updated, downloaded the module, remove fxo & metashaders, launched the Cold Start mission and ..... 22 fps in VR in cockpit where I usually have a steady 45 in all situations with all modules ....

Oh well, I know it's Early Access and all that but I'm disappointed ...

 

 

For the record: i7 8700K oc 5.0gHz, 32 Go DDR4 3600MHz, GTX1080 oc 2025MHz, SSD ...

Happy Flying ! :pilotfly:

I wish they would have included the LITENING pod as it would've been a copy paste from the A-10

 

The simple answer to this is its never as simple as a copy and paste. Very different systems.

 

ED strives for quality and realism, not taking easy short cuts just for the sake of game play.

How did you guys download so fast.. I'm getting max 350 KB/s, have a crappy DSL but should still reach up to 1.6MB/s

HOTAS: Thrustmaster Warthog

PC: it's much better now
