    VR is the future for sure but at the moment we're just at the beginning, everything is experimental and nothing is sure nor fixed.

    My new equipement is based on the "old" technologies, it's not a big investment at all. I will use Window 7 and FSX, which has came out in 2006. Everything is more than tested and it works fine. I only want to spend some of my free time in relax, by flying toward a nice sunset over the Hawaii mountains, at 10.000 feet altitude, while outside, in the real world, it's raining and the fog surrounds everything is visible.

    Both things do not exclude each other, of course. I am very curious about VR and I'm sure we will have much fun with such new technology.

    This is the result:



    It works fine.
    We needed half a day to find the right configuration, making 4 monitors work well on Window 7 with FSX which is a 10 years old software.
    The PC is really powerful, it allows to play at a resolution of 1820x1080px with 60fps framerate. Everything is very fluid and natural.
