  1. Hey I have a question. Is it possible to tell C-802AKG to return to flying to its target coordinates or otherwise possible to see where the target is supposed to be? I often find myself disoriented once the missile feed comes on and I am not sure exactly where the missile is or where I need to pan to find the target, Thanks!

    Armed Assault

    Arma II is a definite purchase. I liked Arma, despite its bugs. As for OFP2, well. We havent actually seen much *real gameplay* unless I missed something here? OF course the devs and publishers will talk a lot about how great their game is but its hardly anything we havent seen before. I cannot make a statement about it before I see it for real. but I hope they surprise me in a good way. Allthough there is a chance it might end up more like an instant action shooter game instead of more tactical simulation like arma/ofp
  3. Sorry for not posting any picture, but id like to say that given that some people here have posted pictures of BMPs, Hinds et all shooting orange tracers, Perhaps these were used by NATO countries? The reason a lot of russian weapons uses green tracers are because of the material they use. Quote from wikipedia:
  4. But its not accurate, because they have also modified the wings on the side
  5. So basically they put a rotor on a propeller plane? :)
  6. just a heads up, its actually 'qwerty' which is the first 6 letters on those keyboards, which indicates its keyboard layout, germans for instance uses qwertz (Y is swapped with Z)
  7. Over G Fighters has anyone tried this? I just saw a youtube clip with it, judging from the HUD footage it seems very realistic, have not seen any radar use so I cant tell from those videos alone Any comments?
  8. heh heh. Only needed to hear the first 2 seconds of that.. Ghost in the shell - stand alone complex opening music very nice song. PS. Full name is Yoko Kanno - Inner Universe
  9. its right there in the article
  10. ... then check this out: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=TBD9Juqx7PI
  11. Am I the only one that thinks the forum inactivity here can partially be because of the re-arrangement of the forum?
  12. as an open source programmer, I strongly think a donation option is the best.
  13. quite nice, I dont know if its just me.. But the plane feels a little out of place in some of those shots
  14. Why are people talking about its BVR capabilities anyway, its completely irrelevant to the topic and any person with a bit of clue knows it is the best today
  15. Well, I just bought the shittiest webcam I could find and put together a LED on my cap to test, and thats really all I need for lockon anyway as it only supports 2 axis movements picture of my extremely hard assembly can be found here The results ingame are quite pleasing, I havent tweaked with the settings yet for max performance but overall it works quite well!. .. now I just need to get used to flying with it... :joystick:
  16. Im going to be purchasing a webcam and some electronics to go set this up, lets see how it turns out :smilewink:
  17. To ED, its entirely useless for anything but the KA-50, in order for your head to move sideways as if you are shaking you need a full 3d cockpit, think about it, if you are bumped to the right in your seat, You should see a another view that you never do while sitting straight (duh). Full 3d cockpits is nothing they can just add like that, it would involve some serious rewriting of the engine, and I guess the only time we will see something of that magnitude ever happening would be the F-16 vs Mig-29 sim if it ever gets developed
  18. They should've painted it black and named it Mig-28
  19. I got the impression that Cougar + necessary mods to really make it good goes way beyond $300, and 300 really is his limit id imagine for some time ahead..
  20. Greetings everyone. I have a friend that I recently introduced to lock-on, He's now interested in buying a joystick, however have yet to decide which one.. So, Suggestions? :helpsmilie: His max budget is around $300 USD, and he says that he wants.. "the best" :P
  21. Impossible, how? Model wise? No I dont think so. He knows how to angle the engine nozzles on the lockon models and he displayed it on one if his videos he posted a couple of weeks ago Anyway, the author decided go to for an a-10.. good luck with that even if it isnt my fav :(
