Hmm looks like good news for the MSFS and CFS3 brigade. I may even fire up my ED goggles again for the full vr pilot thang but one thing that vid did remind me of was just how butt ugly scenery and cockpits in the MS range of combat sims are http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Shame about the hat I had kinda gotten used to my helmet http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif lol

Cheers for the heads up

I thought Oleg said no until BOB? Why do you say soon?

gotta clear some things up..about 6DOF.

its not that oleg is outright saying NO to PF+6DOF...he just isnt offically supporting it in PF..(yet) but, that doesnt mean NATURAL POINT isnt allowed to try things their way.

hes only stating offical work/input from 1C for 6DOF will be in BOB..

i do have one thing tho...being an avid motorcyclist.. on e thing ive learned is that when you go thru the curve, look as deep into it as possible... i do the same thing with my flight sim games... i always kept head level to horizon when possible. track-ir couldnt handle this previously... going to be a kick-AZZ experience to see the cockpit leaning over..and head strait :0

THAT IS NOT 6DOF!..that is NOT NATURAL POINT

READ IT AGAIN.
READ it all the way thru.

that is a STEREOSCOPIC IMAGE...the guy is not a beta tester he was trying HIS version of what it would be like. READ the thread before you just start placing pics and any knowledge of specifically what its about...



here is his quote.. as to HIS TAKE

"Oh, my apologies, i'm afraid i've been misunderstood,gentlemen. I'm not a betatester for the 6DOF feature, and it would be fantastic to see it work with the great series of Oleg's sims( a happy TrackIR3Pro owner here,btw )
These shots come from a different forum,were made in a stereo D3D mode.I just made an assumption that the problem with the gunsight crosshair might prevent 6DOF from being fully functional in FB/PF,
however, i've not the slightest idea whether this is or not true."

and here is the link.. so that others can see as well, not just "take your word for it".

i just found out 6DOF is scrapped for PF..OFFICIALLY.

problems yes.
perfect, no.
but i would pay.

its not that your wrong about errors.. it that you displayed pictures of an ASSUMED 6DOF. thats all. ...ACK..... just found out! no biggie.. i cant really argue now that its been shutdown anyways..right..?

EDIT: nothing against you TRIGGFIN... im on the same page as you now.. i think.. lol didnt know it was discontinued an until an hour ago. :P
