  4. prepar3d / fsx VR flying, Vive or Occulus?

    I don't have a direct answer to your question... but the one thing that I do remember seeing someone talk about was that the resolution on the headsets was not always stellar. So you get the awesome effects of VR... but at the cost of detailed scenery. In no way am I trying to talk you out of going down this path. I have no practical experience with it and for all I know the guy I am quoting was a total nut job. But something you might want to make sure you keep an eye out for all the same. It would be frustrating to drop $600 on an Oculus rig and then not love the results.

    Even if you know most of this already, it is still a very well made video to watch.

  10. prepar3d / fsx Captain Sim 24hr EVERYTHING $9.99 SALE!

    okay -- we will see. I have a shiny new 777 (with expansion pack) and 737 (with cargo pack) ready for download when I get home from work tonight. Finally get to extend my range to longer intercontinental flights.

    actually... does anyone have an experience with Captain Sim planes? Are they worth the $10? Or would I be buying a heavily discounted, but completely un-flyable plane? I really enjoy my Aerosoft A320... how would it compare to that benchmark? I love a good sale, but my Steam account is full of games that I bought on sale and then never touched. I am super excited for a shiny new 777 to fly... but I don't want it to suffer the same fate.
  12. I am working on learning the A320... and I am running into a problem. When I fly with the autopilot on, my plane will start to porpoise (see attached photo). I am guessing that it has something to do with the altitude setting in the autopilot, but I can't figure out why it would hit an altitude and then bounce +/- a couple hundred feet... and then readjust... and then bounce... the whole time with the Master Alarm blaring. ...and on a separate note, does anyone know if you can map the 'master alarm' button to a joystick input so I don't have to keep reaching for the mouse every time to turn it off? I could not seem to find the right item in the list that would correspond to it.
  13. hardware Controller suggestions?

    You're spot on, @Bucnatic60. It is a bit of a pain in the ass... but at least now it works! thanks for the offer of help -- but I should be good to go from here!
  14. hardware Controller suggestions?

    Now... if I can only find settings to import. Because with the default... the throttle appears to be linked to both pitch and yaw. (?!?) If I keep the throttle at 50%, the plane will fly straight (but have no thrust). If I throttle up/down, the plane pitches/dives and rolls over. Grrrr.

    I read the reviews on the x56 on Amazon (brutal). But then I re-read your endorsement and remembered the generous Amazon policy for returns and clicked the [Buy] button. The wife says that I can get it on my birthday ( a couple days before Christmas) as "the kids will love giving you something related to video games." So I will let you know in a couple weeks how my device fares. Thanks, @Bucnatic60! (and everyone else that took the time to provide input)
