I have noticed that as well - restarting the game typically solves it for me. How "deep" are you able to reach in to the game as far as modifications / enhancements are concerned? Since it shipped with VFX1 headgear support back then wouldn't it be possible to have that work with current VR headsets?

Yes, I used the VFX1 API to get TrackIR working, so should be relatively trivial to use VR headset tracking instead...although only 3DOF, so no sticking your head out of the cockpit as you can in DCS.

Then it's 'just' a case of diverting the video to the headset. That requires some pretty heavy modification of Dosbox and when I've scratched the surface of that, I came to realize how complicated Dosbox is...and the extent of fragmentation of the VR space. frown

It's definitely something I want to look at again though. smile

What key gives you the cockpit view with the FOV far back so you can see the whole dash and a much wider area outside combined? I can never get that view in game. Not sure how to zoom all the way back or what key does that.

This is the view Im trying to access in game,

thats no longer there in the V2 version - this was only available in the orig DOS version / first release - we still have it in the form of padlock view - press F2 while you have a target selected on the radar.
Not sure why they removed it as I loved this view in the original version as well.

Just discovered that my registration here still works. Thanks to mikew reminding me on this forum elsewhere. Cool to see that some people besides me still play this remarkable classic.

I don't know whether people have resolved their HOTAS issues, or not, but as it was raised here. I use the T16000M HOTAS FCS (incl. The TWCS throttle). I have created a TARGET profile that includes both and run it. It should run before the game is launched and also before you enter the config menu using Reloaded. If you haven't done so, maybe it is advisable to run the profile, start up reloaded, click on the wrench and then select config next to your install. Under preferences joystick should be selected. Next is to setup the joystick under preferences. You have to follow the instructions confirm and moving joystick, peddals and throttle. Then simply select yes when you are asked whether you have a Flight Stick Pro (I think it was that one). Exit and then run the game.

Works flawlessly for me. I'm using 640×400 resolution in full screen mode because:
1.) There are no graphical glitches in the MFD views
2.) You'll notice that you can see targets at longer distances and not just in the last moment, comes in handy when strafing targets on the ground like parked aircraft, but also during dogfights.

Wooow -I have the exact same setup T16000M with TWCS throttle and I could not figure out how to set it up yet. Are you able to share the profile you have mentioned? Is target a separate joy-key mapper software?

TARGET is actually the official software from Thrust Master for its products.

I can share the profile I use, next time when I'm at the PC.

Find attached the Profile files.

Due to file type restrictions you need to rename:
EF2000.txt => EF2000.fcf
EF2000.rtf => EF2000.xml

I have added the printout of my profile as PDF.

Important for everybody who may have problems:
Set Rudder as DX_ZROT_AXIS
Set Throttle as DX_Z_AXIS

DX_Z for Rudder and DX_Throttle do not work!
