DCS: World 1.2.7 Beta patch release:

http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=117734

DCS 1.2.7 Open Beta - Now Available


http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.co...rld_open_beta/

We will first release DCS 1.2.7 as an Open Beta using a web installer. This open beta install will be complete version that resides in parallel to your release DCS World (1.2.6) install and have separate configuration files located in Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\. Once you download the open beta, you will use the Module Manager to install your modules. We particularly hope that this, combined with the automatic track crash generator, will help us resolve remaining network issues prior to the final release version of DCS 1.2.7. This is an optional beta, and if you do not wish to take part, you certainly do not have to.

The primary purpose of the Open Beta is to improve the quality of release versions (particularly before we send it to Steam and other online services). We want to ensure that no new bugs are introduced and that network play is operating well. Despite the best efforts of our test team, items will get missed unless we have a much larger testing pool with a large variety of hardware and game setting configurations. The larger testing pool also allows us to better stress-test network games given the large number of players available. That being said, the two objectives for the Open Beta are:

1- Identify and report NEW bugs. This is a big reason why we have the Open Beta as a completely separate installation. This allows you to compare the current 1.2.6 version with the 1.2.7 Open Beta to ensure that a bug is in fact new (not in 1.2.6).

2- Network testing. While missions may run fine with less than a dozen players, we need testing that exceeds 20 players to stress-test network play.

Some other notes:

1- Ideally, no modifications (mods) should be used for the Open Beta. Any mod can invalidate test results. If you feel a mod is vital to run your mission, you must specify any and all mod used in the mission when submitting a report.

2- When you discover a bug / crash, first please confirm that it is a new bug. If it is, please enter it in the DCS Open Beta Test Reports forum located here: http://forums.eagle.ru/forumdisplay.php?f=311. Please use the correct reports sub forum. Attach any produced track crash and the log files created when you have a crash (located in /Users/<name>/Saved Games/DCS/Logs) along with a description of the crash and DXDiag readout saved as a TXT file (WinKey+R, enter "DXDIAG", Save All Information, Save TXT File to Desktop, Attach). Eagle staff, moderators, and our test team will be reviewing these reports and entering the valid ones into our internal bug tracking database.

Reports may be assigned the following tags in the thread title by Eagle staff and moderators (please do not enter these yourself):

[REPORTED] When a valid report is discovered and entered into the internal bug tracking database.
[RESOLVED] When a report has been fixed.
[CLOSED] When a report is invalid (such as reports that are not new bugs to 1.2.7) will be closed with an explanation.

Duplicate reports will be merged by Eagle staff and moderators.

Released!

A while ago (around October 2013) I worked with Eagle Dynamics to make a tv commercial video for DCS World/Flaming Cliffs 3. I made 2 videos, each 30 seconds long. The Flaming Cliffs 3 version was for the Russian market, while the DCS World version was for the US market.

This video contains all footage used in both videos. I had to wait a while before going public with this video, but here it is.

So, I got permission for Oculus to say a bit more...

Both myself and the team in Moscow have the HD Prototypes that are 1080P. (1920x1080)
Split to 960x1080 per eye. It also has reduced latency. This version already provides a much better experience than the DK1 with 640x800 per eye (split).

Alex has been working with it the last week and we already have DCS up and running on the Rift to include:

Head tracking
Re-centering hot key
Automatic Rift detection
Stereo 3D
Fixed HUD projection for 3D
In-mission GUI
Using Rift for view control in Replays
F2 view working with Rift control
Adjustments for distortion and chromatic aberration

More to still do, but things are shaping up well.
