  1. Yesterday
  2. It's not so much a question of money, I just do not want them until I sort out a dedicated racing/flying seat. I am getting older but of course I have not forgotten our old IL2 games together, although I would say I was the weakest of the bunch. I have been trying to get into DCS, but I struggle even with the basic take off and landing (I keep shredding the tyres), when I try IL2 I struggle to find the airfield. I am looking forward to MS Flight Simulator 2020. Eventually I will convert to HOTAS in Elite dangerous as well.
  3. I’d buy 2nd hand rudder pedals. The immersion and feel is so nice and you will not regret it when you’re into flying again. we used to fly IL2 together back when I was living Brazil... between 2002-2007 somewhere. there were about 6 or 7 of us (BDA time?)
  4. Last week
  5. I have a couple of older joysticks with integrated throttle. What they lack is buttons and switches. If you look at an X56 there are multiple hats, rotary dials, switches and triggers. This allows you to operate many space/ flight sims without moving your hands. I can fly most planes in FSX only using an old HOTAS, but if I try to fly DCS there are nowhere near enough buttons so I end up using the keyboard as well. I also need to buy Track IR!
  6. On the rare occasion I actually use a joystick, I'm still rocking the old Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. Hahaha. I have heard good things about the X56, though.
  7. Everything I have read about the warthog has been good and I like the idea of providing addon grips for different aircraft. The only problem with it is that you need separate rudder pedals, Unless (or until) I have a proper flight seat I do not want to get the pedals, so I need a HOTAS with a twist grip for the rudder.
  8. Warthog all the way. I love that stick. http://www.thrustmaster.com/en_UK/products/hotas-warthog TM has made the F-18 as well recently and plan to remake the F-16 one (http://www.thrustmaster.com/node/9213).
  9. I am interested in buying the Logitech (formerly Saitek) X56 for space and flight sims. But in reviews it has been marked down for poor quality and ergonomics. I just wondered if anyone has experience with the X56 or indeed any other HOTAS system.
  10. I actually sold my Federal Corvette (stripped of modules) and bought a new one. Even though I lost 10% of the original price in the sale, I still made about 40million in the trade. I have a Federal Assault ship so I will do the same with that. Then I will decide if I want any of the other Federal ships.
  11. I am pinning the missions in the objectives menu, I can see the option to unpin the mission implying that it is pinned. Unless there is button push that can turn guided mode on or off, I haven't turned it off, that's not to say I haven't turned it off accidentally. I will try to find it today.
  12. Are you pinning them to your task list from the Objectives menu? Not at my computer at the moment to check the exact name, but there is also a setting to turn "Guided Mode" on or off, I'd make sure that is turned on. Can't think of any other reason they wouldn't be showing up.
  13. If you want to buy a federal ship now might be the time to buy one. The standard price for a Federal Corvette is about 188million At Jameson it is normally around 168million, but at the moment it is 107.2million. This is a result of the federation winning the Galconda bid.
  14. I am struggling with breakpoint because the mission waypoints are not showing up. Nonetheless I have had a bit of fun driving around shooting stuff up!
  15. Earlier
  16. Oh well, I wasnt going to buy it but I have. Of course my internet will take ages to download it!
  17. I did take advantage of the sale to get Breakpoint. I'm really enjoying it. It plays very very similar to Wildlands, but the main story is far more engaging. The side missions and faction missions actually enhance and add context to both the main story and the general game world.
  18. I have been looking at buying some planes and combat zones for DCS world, but whilst it looks beautiful, it may be too difficult for me. Because Microsoft Flight Simulator is coming out next year I wont be getting any addon aircraft for FSX or X plane 11. Not really interested in Breakpoint, but always happy to play Division 2. I am thinking of setting up a simulator rig in the TV Room that can be quickly switched from racing to flying. I will need to upgrade the Video card there from a 1060 to a 2080, but all of that can be done next year. If I find the right setup it will work for Elite Dangerous, Star Citizen, Flight Sims and Racing Sims. I have looked at the X56 as well as the 2080 but there is no immediate need and I havent seen any deals on the them locally.
  19. Ubisoft is having a pretty good sale. If you've been waiting on Division 2 or Breakpoint, they're both about 50% off until the 2nd. The Steam autumn sale is on until the 3rd, all kinds of stuff available on that. If you've been wanting to do some PC upgrades, today and Monday are always great opportunities for some good deals.
  20. Almost Missed it!!!! Happy Birthday ye ole Scot!
