View Full Version : Oleg or Dev Team for BoB: Widescreen support? TrackIR w/Vector Expansion?

03-17-2006, 06:15 AM
Being a dedicated IL2 (merged out the wazoo) junkie, I would like to be well prepared for Oleg's next WW2 flight sim release (even if it is almost 2 years away). It is a great product--thanks!

But since I am such a junkie, I am trying to plan my hardware upgrades accordingly with the new Battle of Britain project that you are currently working. I have a 9 year old 21" CRT monitor that is pretty dull now (especially relative to the new LCD monitor I have at work). I also have a TrackIR2 (which plays seamlessly well with IL2m).

Can we of the community please have an answer on a few questions that will aid us in our peripheral upgrades? Specifically:
1. Widescreen support: Will BOB support widescreens in the sense that they will display more information, not less, than a 4:3 ratio screen?
2. TrackIR with Vector Expansion (6 DOF): Will BOB models and code support the vector expansion feature?
3. Also, are there any other cool gizmos that it *might* support that would add to game playability/immersion?

I'm not asking for promises; perhaps just likelihoods.

Thanks again.

Now, just awaiting other two....

I believe 6DOF will be supported. I've read it a few times, but can't remember specifically where.
