    ROF issue

    Sounds pretty much like the issue I have with my GPU, see: http://forum.jg1.org/topic/6527-issue-with-gpu-or-cpu-or-anything-in-between…/ ...the connection to windows 10 I never saw so far, but as you are suffering this only now with your new systems it seems obvious that there is one. Only solution for me was to turn graphic settings in RoF down, esp. the post effect super sampling seems to have a high impact. In the last posting of this thread you find the graphic settings I play the RoF torunaments at the moment without any issue so far....
  2. Maybe worth to mention that some Parts of BH are meanwhile part of JG1
  3. Thanks a lot Klaiber for the comprehensive explenation => with this approach the scoring makes more sense...
  4. Emely is touching something I am also wondering about: Maybe it would be good Idea to increase the points for some 2-seater missiosn slightly to reflect risk and strategic contribution a little better? I think at the moment the system is not really reflecting the importance and esp. the risk of some 2-seater missions, e.g.: If someone does a long recon flight deep in enemy territory, have to stay some time over the target to take the pics, thus have a significant higher risk of beeing intercepted, needs to land safely on an active field gets (if successfull) 1 point, while a pilot who heads directly to a scondary target, destroys 3 trucks or horse units there in 2 minutes and ditches his plane 1 km inside friendly territory gets 3 points... To make it clear: It will never be possible to highlight everyones contribution 100% fair and accurate, beside that the rewards are for sure not the main reson for flying events like FiF, nevertheless I think a slight recalibration of the points granted for successfull recon, spy, capture and spotter missions could help to outline the job done by those pilots better (...and would also not be too complicated I hope...). ...just my 2 cents...
  5. Congratulations guys.... And also many thanks to all the people making such events possible and the ones who take over organizational tasks and providing us with so much fun!
  6. A new GMT pilot.... Hurraay...
  7. Hi Bear, thanks a lot for advice, some my feelings about the problem pointed roughly towards such a direction… I think simply any component (maybe CPU, maybe any internal BUS...) cannot handle some specific situation and sends a kind of "shut off" signal to the GPU then… Maybe also simply my power supply reaches in such situation ist Limits (I have a 600W). Anyhow, it is not unlikely that these are only signs indication my system reaches end of ist LifeCycle.... But that's not relevant now, I have my backups done and at the moment I found an absolutely acceptable graphic setting that provides sufficient results and still allows 2 Hours flight time at FiF, and it was not even needed to reduce the Settings _that_ much: ...so this super-sampling seems to be really a good bet to be turned off in case of any troubles.... Salute & thanks for all your support guys.... Etzel PS.: My Monitor anyhow is limited with 60 Hz, so any framefrate above does not bring any Benefit to me
  8. Good News, flew with the new Setting 1 hour and 12 minutes on last weeks FiF map without any issue.... Well, have to say without post effects graphical atmosphere is really affacted….but well, I fly not that much time in RoF any more and with that Settings it seems I can at least rejoin FiF again!!
  9. Hmmm.... thanks, I remember. But I am meanwhile on Windows 10 (for some time already)... so I am not sure if really that was the latest reason for switching to window mode. But anyhow, I see no reason not use the full screen mode for my next test, so I will switch this setting too, just to be sure that not maybe this is causing the issue....
  10. Re Full Screen Mode: I ran on full screen earlier too, but there was a specific reason I turned it off to get rid of certain problems; unfortunatly I don't know what exectly was the reason for this.... anyhow, no prob to do a test with full screen mode again for the testflight... And yes, the post effects I planned anyhow to turn off for my next test run, together with a significant reduction of the light sources and see then if the issue still occurs at the same point in game. As the last flight I did is easy to reproduce I will do exactly the same flight and see how system behaves then....
  11. Nvidia GeForce Experience I don't have installed (don't even know what this ist?). And installing the GPU Drivers from a USB stick should bring anything??
  12. No Prob, following the settings as I set them for this test flight: Regarding deletion of the complete dogfight-folder: Well, maybe good idea to do this also before I do the next testing (did this regularly in former times when I played a lot online on the different servers), but honestly I don't think this will make any difference...
  13. Baaaad News..... the problem is reproducable: I did yesterday the set-up of an own server and used last saturdays map for it: I took off in an fe2b at Pluckley, flew directly to Bridge 2 (it was the active one) and destroyed it, flew back to Canterbury to start the search for the train there.... and directly when I flew low level over Canterbury suddenly ....*klick*.... and the screen went off..... It happened even faster as when I flew online... ...Well, that could point out something else: On Saturday I reduced my graphic settings a little bid, for this test I put everything to the absolut maximum... so it could be, that the graphic settings make a difference for this issue.... On the one hand thats for me absolutely not understandable as my new GPU is far away from any limit in RoF even with the highest settings, on the other hand I have more and more the feeling, that the issue is not directly caused by the GPU but from any other component around and the switch-off of the GPU is only the symptom.... However, I have no idea to find it out, but based on the fact that I can reproduce the problem at least there is one small hope: I can play around with the graphic settings and maybe find a level, where this issue is not happening anymore, but which is still good enough for navigation and plane spotting..... ...but this approach will probably take some time; so for the time being that means I am out from FiF :unsure: Thats a pitty for me, as FiF is the best chance to meet more of you; nevertheless I hope there is the chance to fly together either on Cubans Server or on our Flying Circus server or on any IL2-Server... Edit: And thanks again Luft for all your support, esp. for the tipp to set up my own server with the FiF-map for testing purposes; this was a great idea and shouold have done this already during last tournament where this issue occured for the first time...
