  1. You are playing a blinder here m8, many thanks for update, still kinda flying in the shadows here, was gone for so long, it's like learning DCS-bios from scratch. Promise you, I will catch up. Thank you for sticking with it m8, you don't know how much some of us appreciate your work. :thumbup:
  2. Had the same issue with mine, i'ts an expensive piece of kit, but the static energy it produces, is horrendous. Motherboard gave up one day when I sparked a static hit, lights went off. I asked Thrustmaster was there an easy fix, was just going to put a resistor in place to shave off the 20000kw power spike, said in gest but you know what I mean, new motherboard, about 60 quid uk, seems to have sorted the shit out. gordy.
  3. Don't ever feel you have bitten off more than you can chew. I'm just back from, middle east/africa after a 2 year hiatus. Don't ask. Came back to the forums and things have moved along a huge amount. Joe, (Ian) has made huge leaps with dcs bios, John and Hans and another couple of guys, will rake, find and credit you, been away too long. Take a panel even if it is only say the electrical panel, interface it, make it work. Do that before you start actually building cockpit. It grows on you, I no longer have a spare bedroom bro atm pit is like 16ft.
  4. this I don't disagree with the company policy, just its more expensive than buying a new one.
  5. Mine bricked today. Very little use as I am building the cockpit. Guys have mentioned previously about the fact that it seems to generate static from nowhere. U go near it and it sparks. Motherboard has gone, that I have no doubt. Got it touch with Thrustmaster and it would be cheaper if I bought a new throttle than put it through the Paid RMA to France. I will buy a new motherboard and rip the old one to bits and find out why so many throttles fail. Got right on my tits this thing. From TM If you decide to start a PAID RMA, you will have to: - You will have to pay for shipping the wheel's base to our repair center in France; - Your wheel will be checked and if a repair is possible (because in some situations the defective part is not available as a spare part and cannot be replaced), then a price quotation for the parts that need replacing will be issued; - Along with the parts that need replacing you also have to cover a 60 Euros fee, for handling and shipping the wheel back to you; - You will have to pay for the entire quotation first (via PayPal); - Once the payment is confirmed on our end, the wheel will be repaired; - Once it is repaired and tested, it will be shipped back to you. Important note: before starting an out of warranty RMA, you need to confirm that you acknowledge the following: - we cannot guarantee that the product can be repaired before having it inspected; - if the product cannot be repaired, you will have 2 choices: you can pay 60 Euros to receive it unrepaired, OR abandon the product and allow us to destroy it, free of charge. The price for the main PCB is 53.80 Euros (shipping included). We are looking forward to your answer.

  6. Fcuk me John. I know you were one for recycling..... but that's quite an exceptional job there bro. Love it.
  7. Nps bro, it is lga 1155, your A10 is AMD FM2 so you would need to change the motherboard. You pay the shipping, would probably be about 12 UK pounds. Here if u need it m8. I have used both AMD and Intel processors on DCS and found non-hyperthreading Intel processors to be best. Just clearing space here. :)
  8. After recycling my HD7950 to a really nice Polish guy who has it up and running and a huge improvement to his last card, I have the above processor to clear space. I know its not a K, or the fastest around, it's 3.1 to 3.5 turbo but I had it running sweet at 4GHZ through FSB and voltage tweaking, single water cooler. Only used it for 6 months, It up for grabs if its any use to anyone. Postage cost only. :thumbup:
  9. Fuel panel looking good m8. Looks kind of weathered already. I like that you haven't tried to hide the dots/imperfections etc Hans. I'm same, if there are chips and scuffs, it makes it more realistic. :thumbup:
  10. Makes perfect sense to me DM. :thumbup:
  11. Welcome m8, atm, I'm kinda awol. But guys here are awesome, you will be accepted with respect.
  12. If you are thinking of building a cockpit bro, you are away on the wrong tack here. When you say building a cockpit, can you expand.? I, like some others are building full size cockpits so that statement about "a cockpit" is null atm. Most of the guages can be exported onto a second screen using Gadroc's programme. Why spend 60+ uk on 2 tablets when you could grab a 23/24/27 inch monitor from ebuyer for under 100 Uk. Not being critical, just thinking about the future when the cockpit building bug gets you. Technically the tablets will be defunct. I'm not an expert in cockpit building, in fact far from it, but...... been there, done that, got the T-shirt m8.

    HD 7950

    Sure mate. I'll get it packed up securely and get it weighed on Monday. PM sent.

    HD 7950

    Yeah cichlidfan m8, up for grabs but no-one seems interested. Ran 3 monitors in DCS no probs. I will give it a day then recycle it.
  15. That looks really good. You have obviously thought about it and respect m8.

    HD 7950

    Got one up for grabs. Just gathering dust on top of wardrobe. Awesome card did me until i got the 7970, then the 980ti's. Free to a good home, just cover the postage. weeb :thumbup:
  17. The Saitek Combat Rudder pedals take a bit of flack on here from some people. But I can say in my honest opinion they are worth every penny that I paid for them. Never let me down and jeez, I've abused them. I'm going for a set of Crosswinds purely because I have budgeted for them, not because the Combat Pedals have let me down. Value for money m8, I know the Combat Pedals are more expensive than the standard pedals but they do the job well. weeb
  18. Excellent reply bro. I see where you are going here. Not provocative at all, merely factual :)
  19. Short and effective guys, well done. I'm Sure Blooze would have appreciated it. BBBRRRTTT. A 21 gun salute would have cleared all life and vegetation for miles around so good call on the quiet run :)
  20. Ian does that affect Developer Mode in Chrome?. Reference docs, does that need to be updated to latest library. Just asking because I'm sure some others will be asking the same but they may not be happy about asking. Cheers m8 :thumbup:
  21. There are people on the forums who are not as passionate as us and don't have the ability or the desire to make switch boxes. Lynxx, I think they are expensive for the day to day user, but you are offering a modular solution. Ask someone who has never 3d printed, or bought acrylic or laser or cnc to cut, switches, pcb's. He will buy the solution, saves him burning out more arduinos, learning soldering, learning coding, etc, etc. Yeah its cheaper to source parts and build by yourself, but forget what everyone else is niggling on at you for, there is a niche market for pre-assembled hardware and the cost is only relative to what the buyer thinks is acceptable. Carry on mate, fcuk the disbelievers. :pilotfly:
  22. "You should also order one of these $7.20 logic analyzers. They are cheap knockoffs of the original Saleae Logic 8 / USBee AX designs (not much more than just a breakout board for a particular Cypress chipset -- the reason normal commercial logic analyzers cost hundreds of dollars is the high-quality software they come with). You can use them with the open source sigrok project." Are you a mind-reader in your spare time [FSF]Ian? :) I was going to contact you and ask you to recommend a value for money logic probe but you beat me to it. Thanks m8.
