Hi All,


I have been a Flight sim junkie for some time now.. I had always dreamed of a Big screen for running my Flight Simulators on.. WEll back in 2010 it became a reality altho I started off rather small for a Projector..


The screen was 45" with a Projector and I used some Screen goo for the paint.. Well shooting forwad to 2015 I had built a bit bigger of a screen and curved this time..


I dubbed it Nephilims Virtual Flight simulator.. I had discovered Curved screens long time back but since the warping software at the time was in the thousands of dollars a curved screen was out of reach.
Well along came nThusim and brought the cost down to enthusiasts to within grasp of us mere mortals.. Well I went ahead and bought nThusim at that time I had a 3 Projector setp but it was a planar setup so no real need for nthusim..


Well I got in contact with Brad over at nThusim and he had much experience with building curved screens.. So after about 2 weeks designing and all I cam up with a 10'x4' 7'arc my dream was finally realized.. here are some pics of the build process and such:
































































The Icing on the cake for me is it is a NVidia 3D Vision certified system for a total immersion.. I ran a mission in DCSW last night and it was totally immersive I almost felt I was really there..


I had painted the Screen with Behrs Silver screen paint and the result was fabulous. I am now looking to buy a iDisplay Pro to calibrate the 3 displays for better color matching as it is pretty bad and My fiddling with it is making it worse hehe!!

I will try adjusting the gamma for now, I was looking into a ISF calibration but that was going to be very expensive for 3 Projectors.. So the iDisplay Pro should fit the bill nicely..


here are my PC Specs:


1. Intel i5 3570K @ 4.3ghz
2. Asus P8Z68-V Gen 3 motherboard.
3. Windows 7 64bit SP1
4. eVGA 980GTX SC
5. 3 Acer 1261P DLP PRojectors.
6. Coolermaster HAF 932 case
7. Buttkicker Simulation
8. Thrustmaster Cougar F16 Joystick Replica HOTAS
9. Thrustmaster Cougar MFD's
10. Creative 7.1 speaker system

Damn, that's cool.

How's the experience with other games/movies?

Well besides Flight simulations I do some MMO's and the result is it is very cool indeed.. Sometime I got so involved in the gaming session it feels I am there especially in ESO..


I have some racing sims but hardly play them but that is really cool as it seems mostly a 1:1 scale..
