  1. I still have RoF installed, TrackIR and a Rift. I’d be up for either sim. 777 did screw up the FC two-seater plane by giving the Entente Bristols instead of RE.8s.
  2. While on my recent Elite Dangerous exploration, my Oculus Rift right earphone lost audio. By fiddling with the right slip joint on the headset, I could get it working again, but only intermittently. When exploring, I’m always lifting the headset so I can see to make notes. I figure with all the extra movement of I wore or frayed a cable in the slip joint. This seems to be a common problem with the rift as I was able to find a relatively easy fix on the web. It appears the earphone loses ground when the cable frays, so using a length of fine telephone wire to connect the botton pins (ground?) on the left and right earphone restores functionality. At least it did for me. Here are the YouTube links showing how it’s done. Left earphone fix, excellent step by step instructions. https://youtu.be/oLrT94lakpo Right earphone fix, basically saying the left fix works for the right earphone too. https://youtu.be/DNZ-i5K3fZ0
  3. I noted one instance of rubber banding, but no other connection issues.
  4. Does your mother board have built in graphics? Unlikely long shot might be you’re running on built in intel graphics not the 1080Ti.
  5. Good to hear you’re safe Vic!
  6. Found this, although I suspect you already have it. https://www.thewindowsclub.com/driver-verifier-dma-violation
  7. I won’t be flying this Saturday (Sep 21). Grandkids visiting and the Thunderbirds are at Oceana this weekend.

    BOX update

    I had to delete the entire Update folder before it would update.
  9. There was a family renting our oceanfront house one week when it rained every day. From the comments they left in the guest book, they were starting to get cabin fever and were a bit depressed................ until they found the Legos! We have a couple of big bins of legos in the house for rainy days acquired over the years at garage sales. Apparently saved their vacation.
  10. Oculus is releasing their Oculus Rift S. Supposed to be better optics, but the big plus I see is the tracking sensors are built into the headset. Gives you room scale VR while eliminating the need for external sensors, each of which needs its own USB port and full room scale uses three of them. https://www.oculus.com/rift-s/?&utm_source=gg&utm_medium=a_ps&utm_term=oculus%20rift%20s&utm_campaign=1828267642&utm_content=345439811735&utm_parent=rift-s&utm_ad=70308409660&utm_location=9008535&utm_location2=&utm_placement=kwd-390594492938&utm_adposition=1t1&utm_device=t&utm_matchtype=p&utm_feed=&gclid=CNHDnK3h_OECFcmmswodr4UKQg&gclsrc=ds
  11. Finally got around to updating IL2 last night. Love the PD.III in VR! It appears more compact in VR than 2D. I loaded up RoF just to check the apparent size differences. Same size, but the VR experience is much better. Also flew a pattern in the P-47. Got it up and down in one piece, but will have to do some studying on systems and engine operation. Remember, I'm just a lowly Sailplane pilot. Once we get more than an airspeed indicator, altimeter, variometer and compass I'm pretty much lost.
