I can't see FPS in game

I'm new to DCS World, and Windows 8.1, having read other posts in this forum, I'm at a loss.

 

I cannot for the life of me, get the FPS to display whilst flying, in cockpit or external view, or at all.

 

I've tried to use LCtrl + pause and RCtrl + pause, I've remapped the command, in options  to LCtrl + Z.

 

Can't see it.

 

The only things I can see as an overlay, on the screen, are the pinkish, "Game Radar" circle in upper right and there is a display bar at the bottom of the screen showing various things like heading, flaps angle and date and time, but no FPS.

 

DCS 2.5.6 Open Beta, Windows 8.1.   

 

Is there a setting somewhere that needs to be enabled. to show any overlays on the screen?

Game radar indicates you have a game mode or game avionics turned on.

Lctrl+Z is default for time accel - it might be a keybind conflict.

Thank you very much.

 

Yes that was it, I turned off Game mode and Game Avionics and it works well.

 

RCtrl pause is working, though I have a keyboard that needs a function modifier key pressed, when pause is accessed so it's actually RCtrl and Func + pause for me.

 

I used to play F/A-18 Hornet back in the days when it came on a floppy disk, 3.5"  🙂

 

So I find myself with time on my hands and I've watched DCS World, from afar over the years.

 

I can't afford a big rig PC, but I did happen to have a powerful Mac, from when I was in prepress, so I put Windows 8.1 inside bootcamp on the Mac and DCS World is looking like it'll run very well. Not at the highest of high settings, but I'm at about mid level,  at the moment and happy with what I'm seeing.

Have fun till you can. DCS 2.7 is supposed to go live in a week, and it's not Win 8.1 compatible, only Win 10.

I only heard about end of support for Windows 7.

 Ahh well. I guess I'll be learning all about upgrading to Win 10, shouldn't be too hard,  I've had Win 10 in the past in bootcamp...

 

Or I'll be finding how well 2.7 works on Win 8.1    🙂

It should work .. DCS not supporting the older Windows does not mean that the Sim won't run, only means that ED will not be able to provide support if you need it.
