  1. I'll post/check this stuff tomorrow. I'm working a lot of overtime this weekend.
  2. i7 4790K 4.6GHz 1080Ti Nvidia 16gb ram 240GB SSD
  3. I have messed around with the global settings but I haven’t been able to get anything that is both playable and not ugly
  4. I went through the trouble of reinstalling and rebinding everything and tried like hell to get the game to be playable. The only way to get it to play at 60 fps without stutters is to run it at such low quality that it looks like a half ass knock off of IL-2 1946. I'd actually rather play that at this point. Maybe it's my PC. If it is, I'm done. I don't have the ability to upgrade my PC at this point. It would be much easier for me to simply trade my flight sim gear for a wheel and go back to racing.
  5. Little known facts about WW2 is that the Germans were the first to develop a headset that allows the pilot to see through his plane. It took the rest of the world until the F-35 to produce this capability and they were doing it back in 1945!
  6. I really wish Microsoft would get back into the WW2 sim game. Not because they were any good at it (all of their CFS games were dumpster fires out of the box) but because their platform is amazing. CFS2 was one of the best with 3rd party add ons. Not to mention an actual globe. The only limitation to your map was textures, but if you had the textures you could fly very long distances. You could, if you were insane enough, fly a complete bomber mission from England to Frankfurt and back. The maps in BoX are extremely limited. This is because the game mainly focuses on the Eastern Front where the scope was far more localized but is terrible for literally any other Theater of the war. Meh. Wish in one hand, right? It may be easier for WarThunder to cross the expanse between it's current realism and real sim territory than it will be for the 1C/777 guys to get there.
  7. It was drastic and I am reconsidering. I won't be making any decisions one way or the other for a while. I am fed up with the way BoX is being handled. Maybe I am suffering from "the good ol' days" memories of 1946. Granted, I played that sim for a very long time and I have long forgotten most of its teething issues but even with, what, 5 years of development we still have explosions and smoke visible through clouds and planes that disappear in front of them not to mention that the clouds themselves are ugly as hell. As it is I am taking a break of an unknown amount of time from at least BoX. It may be that my time spent in flight sims would be better in RoF if I were to participate in FiF again. I honestly didn't think FiF was going to survive this long.
  8. I've uninstalled BoS. Currently considering reinstalling RoF or disassembling and parting out my flight sim gear. Hardly get any chances to play anymore.
  9. luckily I have yet to experience any of that.
  10. I don't know what they did to the game but I have so many stutters and planes are almost impossible to see. Even at the most restrictive performance settings I'm barely getting a smooth game. I haven't had much time to fly lately but this is destroying my will to.
  11. I can tell you that that feeling exists even without the armor plate there. You always feel paranoid. And just about the time you start to feel comfortable you get complacent and then you get bounced. And then you're paranoid all over again.
  12. Pictures I was able to take of the B-17 that went down when it came through the local airport.
  13. Same. D.Va was probably the best plane in the game in my opinion besides the D.VIIf. and SE5a. Super easy to fly, stable, and good roll rate. Considering that almost everyone who had the opportunity in the war preferred the D.III to the D.V I think they got the flight models backwards.
  14. Good job coming back safe! The Pfalz is a tough plane.
