    Server Tooltips May Be Causing Crash

    G'day all,

    Thanks for the public server, it's great to have a training server with a nice low ping.

    I'm having some crashes which, according to the DCS forum, may be caused by the tooltips.

    I've turned them off at my end but it's also forced on the server side.

    Could whoever has access please consider turning them off for the moment?

    Thanks,

    - Bear

    Thanks HuggyBear, yes we're aware of the issue. We'll get the server side config sorted ASAP.

    This should be resolved on our 2.1 server. Was that the server that was crashing for you?

    Still crashing for me.

    If I hover the mouse over controls I still see tooltips. They're definitely selected off at my end.

    This is on AEF Server #2 (DCS 2.1a) - Op Trim It Out v17b.

    Cheers,

    Thanks HuggyBear, I'll look into it.

    Out of interest, I'm assuming you're flying with VR?

    Yep, the Rift. I believe this problem is only happening with VR users.

    I've had a tinker with a server myself and I believe the only way to avoid having tooltips is to change the .miz options.

    Select the left box 'Enforce' and blank the right box. This forces the tooltips off and seems to fix the problem.

    This sucks for anyone who wants the tooltips, but unfortunately ED still haven't fixed this problem whereby the client can set the tooltips, which I've seen initially reported over a year ago.

    Thanks for your help.

    Yep, I have the Rift also. I think we've just uploaded the wrong .miz file. We had this fixed in testing. Will get it resolved today.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Ok, I've modified the running mission (17b) and tooltips are enforced OFF. See how you go!

    That did the trick!

    Thanks for your help mate.

    Time to go throw myself at the ground some more.
