  1. After the latest patch (2019-03-22) the position and scale of the Jester wheel is incorrect at 3840x2160 when "Scale GUI" is enabled in the main options screen. When "Scale GUI" is disabled the position and scale are correct. (see attached screenshots) I didn't notice any problems with other resolutions (I tested 1920x1080 and 2560x1440). Those resolutions don't apply GUI scaling as far as I can tell.
  2. I've been saving up for the Hornet since Lomac was released ...
  3. I believe the term was "promise". :P

  5. 30hz would imply using HDMI 1.4 (either an "early" 4K computer monitor or 4K TV). DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0 support 60hz at 4K resolution. DisplayPort 1.2 should be available on most 4K monitors, even early/cheaper models.
  6. Higher resolution should help since, in a given scene, the area of interest which occupied 100x100 pixels at 1080p would occupy an area of 200x200 pixels on a 2160p screen (~4K). That's four times as many pixels.
  7. Speak for yourself :D
  8. This should answer your questions: Source: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-10-faq
  9. And still no canopy rain effect ... :D
  10. I know a guy who got early access to DCS 2.0 about a week ago. I haven't heard from him since. Apparently he hasn't shown up at work either ... ;)

    Hawk Sales and VAT

    The "luxury tax" may have been an import tax based on the HS-code or the product description which was specified on the customs declaration. The VAT (21% for Belgium) is indeed calculated on the value of the package + freight cost + import duties + customs formalities. Sometimes packages from outside the EU aren't inspected at all and you don't have to pay any additional charges ...

    Hawk Sales and VAT

    The 25% VAT rate and the 8% "luxury tax" existed in Belgium in the 1980's (the luxury tax was abolished in 1992) The standard VAT rate in Belgium is currently 21%. The Netherlands raised its standard VAT rate from 19% to 21% in 2012, thereby equalizing its VAT rates with Belgium. Germany's standard VAT rate is 19%.

    They probably won't for these kinds of cases. The main idea is to levy VAT for the country where the customer is located, instead of levying VAT in the country where the company is "established". Large companies like Amazon, Apple (iTunes) are often registered in places like Luxembourg so they can enjoy lower VAT rates allowing them to offer products at lower prices while retaining their margin. (and also enjoy other tax benefits) Practical examples of the effects of the VAT change: http://www.zoocha.com/blog/how-eu-vat-changes-affect-uk-ecommerce-websites

    In theory: "For a consumer (non-taxable person) = the country where they are registered, have their permanent address or usually live" In practice: probably the country in which the bank (or credit card) account was opened. These VAT changes only affect "Telecommunications, broadcasting & electronic services", not physical goods. Details of the VAT changes: http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/taxation/vat/how_vat_works/telecom/index_en.htm From what I can tell this will affect Eagle Dynamics as well.
