  1. Oh god... I had to stop at 5:25 when the airbrake came out... Good shooting, weird flying, bad premise.... keep going though. Maybe a little less camera shake. Please though, keep making videos, I liked the start of the movie.
  2. That too was NOT the solution... I believe now it was because my TrackIR Z axis was enabled and it conflicted with the slider.... ;)
  3. Kuky brings up a good point.... The shiny chrome may conflict with Track Ir yes? Thats a big mistake on their part lol
  4. Saitek Headset... spiffy http://www.rwlabs.com/article.php?id=213 :pilotfly:
  5. Ok, well it's moments later and I have a solution... I downloaded the recommended driver for the X52 from Windows Update. This is something I normally never do, but in this case it worked! Very odd
  6. I cannot get the slider on my X52 throttle to assume responsibility for zooming my "vision" in and out. Before I moved to Windows 7 64bit it was easy. In the game options I would select X52 as input device, Select axis, and change "zoom" by merely moving the slider. Simple... I may be missing something obvious! Anyone have a solution to this?
  7. It's the right thing to do, and you choose to do it. That's very good and I thank you... I was seriously going to go visit Mackonochie and others at one point and lay out arguments! I will see you all in the virtual sky's again when this comes out!
  8. +1 The future part is a little too theoretical... but we all know this.
  9. Oooooooo I hope in the near future I can use ATI cats for the first time on my machine. If the new ATI releases perform well.... I will get one. May wait and see what happens.
  10. It's the flight models and pretty much what everyone else wrote. The negatives of this game and the games industry pressures are apparent. It still escapes me how microprose would release a game in 1993 costing 40$ and today games still cost 40$ (and no, modern coding and efficient dev programs do not make up for this.) Sounds like a loss for consumers to pay 100$ but if it would give us better games (which we need) I would pay it. At any rate I digress.... The positives are apparent... wishing i lived in a vacuum ~ Fuddley
  11. No problem... let us know what you do. Personally Im waiting to trade away my 8800gts 640mb for the ATI releases, hopefully next month. I'm never one to tell people "wait for this!" because that waiting game usually sucks. But these cards may be high performers and you tend to hold onto your equipment for the longer term.
  12. The popular website Liveleak mislabels this footage... but what is it do you think? http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=900_1211320578
  13. +1 This is exactly the type of video the AFA would put out.
  14. HOw bout waiting 1 more month for you and Ironhand... ATI is SUPPOSED to come out with new cards in June. I recall seeing that 1gig versions of the 8800gt and 9600gt realizing little gains. Something on the order of 3% over a sample of games. Lockon is of course not benchmarked anymore. Study study... lol
  15. Ironhand... Look for deals on a 8800gt 512mb (not 256mb) The incremental cost over a 9600gt is worth it... especially nice if you can find one with a non standard cooler... overclocking a gpu is safe and yields noticeable gains. You're a Canuck yes? post the online places or brick-n-mortar stores where you like to buy. That will help narrow the search. Let us know m8 EDIT ... Perfect example right here ... 8800gt with better cooling and a nice price after rebate >>> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125088

  17. I wish runway damage was persistent... would give a whole new spin to moderated MP and online events. To me, there's no better target than a runway...
  18. Kuky? Can i not see Kuky? He is a sneaky bastard... :D White paper http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/8/7/687484ed-8174-496d-8db9-f02b40c12982/Overview%20of%20Windows%20XP%20Service%20Pack%203.pdf
  19. Ah ha great choice... be careful of your dead pixel tolerance though, newegg has a very high dead pixel count policy. Shouldn't have to worry though, dead pixels are rare if frustrating. So your budget is around 359$ ...? Why not consider choosing with these search terms? http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010190020%204019%201301919996&bop=And&Order=RATING There are quite a few 24in monitors in there. If you have the video card to pump out 1920x1200 (not really an issue in LockOn) I would consider it... heck, even games at 1680x1050 on these monitors look really good. 2 more inches really is nice, and those who really have used both, know that 1920x1200 on a 24in is a really what "you" want. If the newegg pixel policy bothers you, try other places and I would not buy without referencing this site at least once before you buy... outstanding deals creep up on this outstanding deal engine from time to time. http://bensbargains.net/category/62 Above all RedTiger... I encourage you to buy a monitor that has a color gamut well above 72% ... pay no attention to contrast ratio specs, they are nefarious marketing terms.
  20. Tiger.... im a monitor freak... which web sources would you buy from? I'd like to look at what your options are.
  21. Think about it.... humans are sort of built to look forward of their heads but also... side to side. Like we were cavemen looking at the open plain for animals to hunt... or last week when you were at the club looking for tail to chase. Thus the wide format seems much more natural... Its awesome. I have a 27in Samsung widescreen and its my favorite thing about my system.
  22. It's not via Microsoft's web page but the full version is already out. It's quite nice. It benches programs faster and feels faster. Just a reminder to keep your eyes peeled for it. 5.1.2600.5512 is RTM
  23. This is a question which I was thinking of early GG... At first I thought the pilot may have been giving a little bit of right rudder and trying to go more pure of an aspect on the UAV ... so the relative motion b/w the missile and plane look like the missile is starting out on the outside....but the opposite is the case. The jet is actually drifting to his own left (hence why he crosses the missile smoke trail.) at any rate... I digress... There I think only three theories left... 1) The resolution is not good enough to tell... 2) It is a Mig-35 and is new to the area.. would fit an export designation to abkhazia... 3) Wing vortices are immediately pushing the trail to the outer part of the wing...like this http://www.sikunews.com/img/siku/publish/2007/10/mig29-ovt2.jpg Not the same aspect in the picture.... but in the video you can see the pilot is pulling the stick when firing WHo knows... still very interesting video!
