Ok, I take it back. I just had a post deleted explaining what the situational awareness display in the Hornet looks like because it was either "off-topic" or "already explained" ???

Hello Ice

As you are well known expert in the field of flight sims, with a great attitude, could you rank the Sims you prefer or think are the best.

You seem down on DCS, but I see fairly recently you created new interface for BMS, so is that your fav?
I abandoned BMS because of lack of multi-monitor support...unless using touchscreen like yourself, but systems are dynamic you seem to keep pace!

regards

It really depends on what you're looking for. Experienced simmers or others may look for a dynamic campaign to keep them on their toes all the time... new simmers may prefer a more sterile or scripted mission in order to test their methods or reaction times.

My dissatsfaction with ED has more to do with how they are developing the game. New user and interested in ground-pounding? DCS A10C is a very good module. Want some multi-role action? BMS. So what is the best? "it depends" biggrin

What do you mean? I've played BMS on multi-screens for ages. I used SoftTH years ago when using different-sized monitors, when upgrading to 3x 27" monitors, I simply combine them in Eyefinity/Surround and the new resolution (5896x1080, bezel corrected resolution) is recognized by BMS. I have to dig into some files to fine-tune my FOV (120-130 works best in my case) and adjust the view-down limits so I can see the cockpit properly, and I'm done.

If you need more help with BMS, post in the Falcon sub-forum here and I'm sure you'll get all the help you need smile


Here's a shot of BMS in multiple screens

Nice setup!

Thanx, yes I wasnt clear!

The multi-monitor is fine for merely viewing the display, but not for interacting with the app, wasnt possible to use the mouse on an extended monitor.

OT Do you use Voiceattack or similar app.....I love it, very flexible.

PS I would PM you but cant!

I went over to BMS, and noticed you were banned! , unless you have another account, hope so!

Did you measure the angle from the top down view to determine the FOV?

I saw your vdo on youtube, you have a blog somewhere!?

Sweet setup Ice. What do you have running that? I see a TrackIR receiver, you still use TrackIR with that?

Still not sure what you mean.... the app? Helios? I use touchscreens for that. IIRC, you can use it in DCS by using mouse on another monitor but due to how BMS implements the mouse cursor, it's not feasible to do so with the program.

I have Voice Attack, VAC, and a couple other programs. Had issues with VA, VAC was more reliable, so I use that for radio comms.

FOV is set so that I have a roughly to-scale HUD. I have a blog but it's more for my Helios profile, really.

Thanks! Single 980Ti. I do need the TrackIR for dogfighting smile Can't really check six or engage in a turning fight even with that view.
