My fellow pilots,
This weekend I found that playing with the settings can be a rewarding, satisfying and sometimes frustrating. I have been meaning to ask on here about settings. I figured the best thing was to start this thread.
First my specs. This old box has an AS Rock X99X mobo with a Water cooled Intel 5930 3.5Ghz proc. There is 32 Gigs of Gskills DDR4 3000 PC 2400 but only 24 Gigs are showing because I got two dead slots. I have never run a program that used more than 9 Gigs of memory so… I think anything above 16Gigs is overkill, correct me if I am wrong(please). Video card is the EVGA 1080 water cooled jobbie and its a great card. No Ti for me until I build another box. I run everything on SSD’s except storage. I just switched over to Win10. It really made a big difference on how my machine runs and I get better in game performance.
DCS. In DCS I found that less is better. NO AA. AF does not seem to affect how the game looks so I got it off. Textures are medium and terrain textures low. Heat Blur on low seems to be ok. Water is medium because I cant stand to look at the low water. I run the VR at 1.5. I’m doing this by momory so I will post more on my settings later.
IL2 Seems to run a lot smoother these days. Last night I turned on Sharpen and this made a big difference without affecting performance.
Please post your settings and suggestions. I really want to get VR smart before the Tomcat and the Hornet get here.
