RE: Quick update from the frontlines, 4.36
RE: What is something you wish you knew before committing to BMS
I wish I knew how much a free sim would cost… - BTW, those paper templates on the MFDs are for my WWII sims… in case you were wondering.
RE: Israel Theater of Operations for BMS 4.36
Unfortunately I’m getting this error after installing the theatre and update
Any ideas as to what I’ve done wrong - I’m using the alternative launcher - the log is from that /user/appdata/local folder etc.
I get the error when I try to configure the campaign from the launcher
BMS crashes when I launch, won’t go past the splash screen to menu
Are you running 4.36.2? If so the update to ITO v1.06.2 (for 4.36 U2) was released today, go to Page 1 of this thread , download the new release, follow the instructions…
RE: Mod: Using MSFS as rendering engine for Falcon BMS - and enable VR
Nah… I am quite content waiting to see what the devs come up with in a year or so.
RE: Not looking forward to the VR update
Is it just me that’s not looking forward to the VR update?
Don’t get me wrong, I like VR and I have a Reverb G2 and my eldest is still playing with the older HTC Vive, but I just can’t play for very long on VR. I also have checklists, printouts, and cheat sheets I need to refer to, which I doubt I can use with VR. I loved combat in Elite Dangerous in VR as you could really feel how cramped the cockpits were and how more agile smaller ships were compared to the big ones. I would do circuits over my local airport and do some exploration flights in XP11/MSFS too, but for the amount of cockpit work and kneeboard referencing needed, I don’t think I’ll appreciate VR.
A major concern I have is being able to tally bandits as well. Currently using a 4K monitor and TrackIR, but I’ve always felt like going to my G2 causes a drop in visual fidelity. Maybe increase the Smart Scaling to counter?
What I am keenly looking forward to, however, is the graphics/terrain upgrade. While I don’t “notice” the ground/terrain graphics, I guess my brain just tunes out how it looks so as not to kill immersion so much especially when I’m down low. A better-looking version would surely be appreciated.
Anyone else on the same boat as I am especially regarding VR? I would love to have the BMS implementation blow my socks off and I’d fully transition into VR, so I guess it’s a “let’s wait and see” scenario.
Hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas! Bring on the new year and bring on 4.37!!
I’m with you, and while I really enjoy WWI , WWII, and Racing sims in VR (G2v2) I also have made a commitment to reality for jet simulations (actually 90% BMS) and have nothing to gain from VR. It WILL bring a new crop of players in, and that is extremely important for the future of BMS…
RE: my AI wingman stop follow me and takoff after ........
<blockquote>he stop follow me and never takoff after i call ATC “ground abort”. so i have to carry out mission alone? <br />this is a continued problem following this topic <a href=“https://forum.falcon-bms.com/topic/22076/taxi-late-interrupt-takoff-sequence/39” target=“_blank”>https://forum.falcon-bms.com/topic/22076/taxi-late-interrupt-takoff-sequence/39</a></blockquote><p><br />Why are you aborting the mission and expecting anything to work afterwards? Starting to seem like you are just doing crazy stuff so you can start yet another thread about a “problem” that doesn’t exist… or maybe it’s just me.</p>
RE: [VR] "My legs are small and my cockpit is tiny" fix
@LorikEolmin for WMR (G2) headsets no wand is required. Same beginning, start Steam, Add a Game (bottom left of Games library window)/ Add a Non-Steam game/ Browse to x: Falcon BMS 4.37\Launcher.exe (it will use the old Launch interface), it will show up with a checked box, then clik Add Selected games. It will show up as “Launcher” in the Steam Games List, go to properties to rename it to BMS Falcon 4.37 VR (if you like), and check off “Include in VR Library” in the bottom of the window. Go to Manage / Add Desktop Shortcut if you want to start it from there.
Now start SteamVR / Settings/Video, make sure Advanced Settings is on, click “Per Application Video Settings”, Pull down the “Manage Video Settings for:” window and select “Falcon BMS 4.37 VR” (or whatever you named BMS in Steam). Bottom of the window is “Override World Scale”, select "Normal "(50% to 200%), scroll down and you will see the new slider, increase to where you want it…
I have not tested in game yet, but should work the same.
Edit: seems to work just fine, I even set my resolution to 120% and still get a steady 90FPS in IA, Campaign may drop it…
RE: DISPLAY EXTRACTION
<blockquote>Just installed 4.35, U1, and U2. How do you set the display to be in the center of your monitor. I don’t see display extraction on the main menu that launches falcon.</blockquote><p><br />At a loss as to why you would not install U3 also? You seem to be confused as to what “Display Extraction” actually is. You can “extract” certain gauges and the MFDs to be “displayed” on the main or secondary monitors. It has absolutely nothing to do with the 2D or 3D Falcon 4.35 screens… Below is an example of “Display Extraction” using Helios, though the MFD’s can easily be extracted using the included RTTClient app…<br /><br /><img class=“ql-image” src=“https://i.imgur.com/gEOYlKM.jpg” /><br /><br /> <br /></p>

RE: Tires glued to tarmac
Got it. It was the Anti-skid brakes stuck on full. Funny that releasing them didn’t seem to work before.
I’m sorry but I don’t understand what you are saying : « anti skid brakes stuck to full » has no meaning
The only reason for which your brakes are on is that( without knowing ) you have bad analog axis setup for brakes in your config
You have a bad joystick control setup and the Parking brake command is constantly pressed
Yes, Brakes are either ON/ANTI-SKID/OFF. Only ON will stop you…
RE: Looking for advices
Anyway, i would like to know which are the suggested VR headset and how they perform. I’m looking for something that allows to read on MFD and such, otherwise i would prefer to wait a little bit more. I saw some people complaining darkness fogginess, mind anyone to explain what is this about?
That greatly depends on your budget and where you live. I would go no less than the HP G2v2, which is about €488 on Amazon right now, maybe less in the US. After that it’s between the Pimax Crystal ($1599+tax) and now, the Varjo Aero (€1,438.69 including VAT, shipping, and 1 Steam Base Station). Aero REQUIRES an NVidea GPU!
If there is a valid headset, what is the required PC specs.
I would say any 12th generation+ CPU and at least a 4070 GPU (no idea about AMD)
For last but not least what could be valid hotas.
I think the easiest to start with is a new TM Warthog HOTAS combined with a good set of rudder pedals…
RE: Virtual Crew Chief for BMS
Amazing work, though I’m getting stuck on the big movements, my stick is enabled in VA.
I get a Command canceled: Another command is allowing others to execute…
is there any way to bypass this? (other than the cancel button in the VA UI)
Edit: I use Icer’s helios profile that doesn’t have Pitch and Roll keyes defined (Is that an issue?).
Before I start gettin PM’s, it’s “Ice’s” profile, I use Helios but it’s “Ice” that is the Helios guy…
RE: Pimax Crystal BMS experience
@Icer Yes I agree, but one on one Crystal has better FOV and now with wide lens it will be even better, it has audio solution also better resolution, inside out tracking and controllers. Local dimming is also a feature missing in the Aero.
Just think about it they drop the price to half of what it was a week ago why???
Crystal has it’s shortcomings too but still a better product then Aero. For the Price now Aero is the best option. But if you want more then Pimax Crystal is the top dog.
My guess is they dropped the price as they saw a decrease in sales once the Crystal and Bigscreen Beyond appeared and needed to adjust to competition, but it’s only a guess. I have been watching Pimax for some time, and their record for delivering on promises has been less than stellar, but i’m happy to see the Crystal has appeared to right some past wrongs. Its great we have two very good headsets now around the €1500 mark (Aero is €1,438.69 delivered with VAT and 1 Lighthouse) now, I’m sure, coming from a G2, I will be more than pleased with my choice. I also use a Sennheiser headset, so audio is not an issue. To be honest, I don’t even use VR in BMS as I prefer my Triples/ICP/TM MFDs but I love VR in IL-2 and iRacing/Assetta Corso…
RE: What to do after training missions?
If you just want to fly single-player, as many do, jump into a KTO campaign. You can simply pick the missions you prefer (stay away from deep strikes, they are suicidal) or re-task existing missions like a 2-4 ship BarCap into a Strike, rearm you flight with A-G, and go take out an airfield! SO many options with BMS Campaign, it will take years just to see what it’s capable of (I still don’t know and I have had F4 since 1998…).
