  1. I have been with the same group of guys for a while in terms of video games. We used to be a BF clan, which started with BFBC2. As we all know, battlefield lost its allure after BF3. For the last few years, I have mostly played Arma, DCS, MechWarrior, and Assetto Corsa. I'm looking for a simulation GROUP that plays most of those simulators. Is anybody familiar with anything like this? I'm located on the East Coast of the US of A. Cheers
  2. Thanks for all the heads up guys. I'm trying to figure out where all of the data is absorbed and which system makes the calculation.
  3. In an A10C, what systems input an what calculations are used to render the impact point on the HUD. I.e. What is the algorithm and what systems produce the data?
  4. I want to build around this set-up. I am thinking about enclosing it. I would use both racing and flight sim configurations. Any opinions from an engineering/architectural perspective?
  5. 2.0 Alpha on Steam Are you implying that steam forces us to use 32 bit versions of games? Also, I understand modules will now be used later on steam. However, steam delivers updates more streamlined than most standalones. The only limitations now are by choices of ED, which I DO respect their decision, not by the interface of steam. The only thing I can think of is that Steam is costing too much for ED. If that is the case then I would definitely go standalone. I assume ED has a tight budget. I have no problems paying them more for any of their work because nobody else on the market can do what they do. This includes prepar3d, FSX, and XPlane. However, I like the steam interface and having everything in one spot.
  6. Me too. Just a whole lot easier.
  7. I'm hoping patience pays off. Let me be clear: I'm a huge fan of DCS and the devs as well as our community. Hopefully they come through for us.
  8. SLI and 2.0 This is a major issue and a deal breaker for me. I specifically purchased 2 970s because they were benchmarking way better than a single 980 in most benchmarks AND a huge ED bullet point for EDGE was the SLI optimization. The fact that we've been guessing about this for quite a few months is disheartening. I played Falcon 4.33 the other day and benchmarked it in single GPU vs SLI and my frames almost doubled. I understand that 4.33 is not nearly as complex as DCS. However, I think if people are modding a 20 year old engine to run SLI, a modernized engine should be able to do so. I also have trouble running triple screen. If I set it to "1screen" I get better frames than "3 screen" but I get owned when I use track IR as it zooms in to the point where it's unplayable. I've seen various ways to mod the game but I shouldn't have to mod it to handle this. I am in the market for 3 120hz LED 30" screens and the Volair sim set-up specifically for DCS. However, I will definitely not purchase another module, map, or campaign until this is rectified. I was going to say that I will not purchase the sim set-up but I think P-Cars provides justification for the set-up.
  9. I like having everything through the Steam interface so I held off on purchasing the 2.0 alpha. My question is; when is 2.0/NTTR coming to Steam?
  10. Whats Next? The graphics are not bad at all. The biggest problem in the sim is the reused ground textures. From high altitude you can see obvious tiles. For being a free sim it does an excellent job; not for the faint of heart. I would imagine flying it would satiate your appetite for the falcon. In my opinion, nothing else on the market comes as close to DCS quality as Falcon, though it really is not as . I do think a DCS F-16C would be the best module we could hope for as a compliment to the existing projects and modules. Ass far as the comment "flying and blowing stuff up;" my experiences indicate more people who fly DCS lean towards the enthusiast aspect of simulation as opposed to the casual simmer. There are other lower fidelity simulators out there for the casual.
  11. I figured it was he. The Dsfix saved my experience with that game; otherwise I would not have played it. Well done investigation btw mate.
