  1. Really a no-brainer, BusPilot. Even though you would have an upgrade path (5900, 5950) on AM4, considering the age of those CPU's vs what's available now and in the not distant future, you basically run out of runway right out the gate. Reality is, a 3090, even in your current rig would/should convince you to go Intel at this juncture.
  2. I recently got the TM TPR Pendular peddles and they replaced my (man, must be at least 30 year old) TM aluminum rudder peddles and other than having to nail them to the floor, they are totally fantastic!
  3. Ah, good to know and I will look into that because we need every button we can get. It's not a really big deal since I'm usually using the Cougar A10 grip because sometimes I like the softer buttons vs the Warthog A10 grip but if I can get the CMS push button to work I may switch back. Just installed latest VPC Configuration software and updated firmware but still no joy. Weird that Virpil Controls sees CMS hat pressed as button 7 and TMS up as button 12, and also shows slots for 128 buttons. VPC Joystick Tester app only shows slots for 18 buttons and it does not register CMS pressed, but shows TMS up as button 7. Windows game controller also shows TMS up as button 7 but also does not detect CMS pressed. Anyone have any idea how to get CMS pressed recognized by Windows?
  4. Another nice thing about Virpil is that you can change the VendorID and ProductID within the Virpil software in case you use Target scripts. I only have the Virpil Warbrd base and am using it with a Cougar grip and it works great with Target. The Warthog grip works as well, but Virpil does not recognize the thumb hat push button. All other buttons are fine.
  5. Originally joined in 2005. Learned a lot! Last post 2011. Bought AH-64 a couple of weeks ago, so now I am back. Not sure where I went (no, it wasn't prison or anything like that). But I am back! Would have been sooner but I couldn't remember my password and the "Forgot Password" function doesn't work for me, lol! But this place seems just as helpful as I last remember it, and I think I will need a lot of help on this new module. Just playing catch-up for now. Thanks, ED! Loving AH-64!!
  6. That is an awesome extension! That has to be the ultimate in precision control but I wonder how durable or practical it will be for very fast movement? I think that is the main tradeoff when extending that much; can you make quick enough movements when flying a WWII aircraft like an F-190 in IL-2. That aircraft can require some very fast full-deflection moves.
  7. I've had my BWU for a few months now and it is hands-down the best KB I've owned. None of the keys do what I see in that video so I guess they must have addressed the issue.
  8. You are absolutely correct on the Cougar. Not sure what I was thinking there!
  9. I'm sorry Bro, I misunderstood you when you said the mounting plate came separated. Yes, the stick ships unattached from the base. The Cougar shipped the same way. What I thought you meant is that the flat plate shipped apart from the base, and that would definitely be a red flag. It sounds more like you are getting registered movement, but a lack of resistance. Again, the design itself makes that almost impossible. There is one HUGE spring that provides most of the resistance beyond center, and 4 smaller springs that prevent resistance-slack at center. I guess those 4 smaller springs could be missing, and that would result in what you are seeing. I'll be very curious in how this turns out but I would definitely RMA it. Don't be too brazen and open the stick to take a look unless you know what you are doing because if you screw up when putting it back together, you WILL break a wire :-) Don't ask......:doh:
  10. Just know that if you export an MFD to a monitor that is not connected to the vid card that drives your primary display, the FPS-hit will me HUGE, with major stuttering. If you connect the MFD display to the same card that drives the main display, the stuttering goes away.
  11. First, your stick should not have come with the housing plate detached from the stick. That's crazy! Second, the design is such that there can NEVER be any type of slack play. If you have play, it is due to a mechanical issue that would be way outside the original design, or it could be a calibration issue. This design should NEVER develop play. Period, unless there are loose screws somewhere. I know that TM has some kind of calibrating software out there for the Hog but I'm not sure how many have it, or even needed it. Either way, if your unit arrived dissaembled like that, you should probably RMA it. That sounds very strange!
  12. I already had TIR3 and had myself convinced that TIR3 was just fine and that TIR5 wouldn't really add that much to the experience. I never did get the 6DOF upgrade for the TIR3. After losing my last reflective dot, I decided to order TIR5. Wow, night and day!
  13. Pretty slick odin. I actually had to run a short extension cord for my Lilliput since the adapter cable was too short to reach anything. I don't know if I'm brave enough to do what you did but if my adapter dies, I sure will give it a shot!
