  1. ... nice way to kill the mood... dayum was I ecstatic for a minute... anyway, thanks for the info buddy
  2. euh... my steam is updating a 770mb update 😀😀😀😀
  3. what made this to be fixed for you? we were discussing this odd behaviour yesterday night with my squad, and a mate raised the fact that it was linked to FFB. we were all flying P-40 in which we observed the same behaviour, but I have to test the Cobra tonight to see if it's fixed for me aswel... anyway, I'll have a look at the bug report
  4. I would be se much interrested to have access to those wonderfull loading screens aswel. yesterday night I was playing in my career when my heart skipped a beat or two while the mission was loading, letting me drooling all over my hotas staring at those magnificents Me-262. so...
  5. duuuude, is that the "interallies monument" in Liege that I see on this image? The topography seems to point to that but just wanna check... BTW on a thursday I see my beloved P-38 in progress, I learn my hometown will be modelised on this HUGE map, and that the Schwalbe is almost done. And all that the same week MotoGP are back to business... it's gonna be hard to beat this one
  6. I am with OP and everyone else when it comes to the Tempest. I 've always been fascinated by its perfect mix of british style and mean looks. it might be as graceful as a spitfire but when it comes to ground attack it is as punching as a P-47. Add to all this a book I read when I was teenager from a belgian Pilot who came from the same city as I do and flew on typhoon, and you might see why my heart was beating when I looked at the planeset anouncement for Bp.
  7. j'ai perso le TrackIR4 (et donc 6dof) qui fonctionne très bien et ce comme au premier jour malgré ce que je lui fait parfois subir. coté de ça j'ai un MSFFB2 dans la cave, j'ai testé un X52 pdt un moment mais le manque de retour de force m'a fait retourner au FFB2. puis j'ai acheté d'occaz un g940 et je suis assez content. c'est sur que c'est pas le machin le plus fiable du monde, et j'ai moi aussi eu un fil cassé. mais étant donné qu'il n'est plus produit je n'ai aucun scrupule à lui mettre les tripes à l'air et fouiller dedans. j'ai remplacé les cables foireux du throttle, suivra la réduction du faible jeu dans le manche. l'intérêt est que c'est un hotas complet avec en plus le rudder et le FFB, ce qui est juste à mes yeux un rêve de simmer
  8. I manage to "cure" this issue. or at least it did'nt showed up lately. You just have to delete the input file and redo it from scratch. we all had to do it before on of the updates, and since then everything seems to be ok
  9. are you sure your HOTAS have the mode selector on 1? Requiem's profile is set up on the first mode so if you are on mode 2 or 3 it won't work unless you copy the mapping on those mode in the profiler.
  10. try to fiddle with the curves on the axis setting. once you touch any slider the diagram will invert itself.
  11. it depends of the answers to 2 questions : - what type of sims you plan to play? - how much you plan to spend on this? : let's assume you want to psend around 200$ and you prefer warbirds sim. then you would have to get a FFB stick first! for around 50$ you can have a second MSFFB2 which is just in my opinion the best FFB stick ever made. FFB is jst oustandingly good, and by far one of the most durable device I hve ever had. and for the rest of the money, you can have a rudder pedal like the saitek one. it doesn't cost that much and are far worth the money. with the money left, you can grab a Track IR V4. it is really one of the immersive stuff you could buy at the moment. Occulift rift seems to push it up to 11, but I don't think they will be ready anytime soon sim wise, I will definitely buy one of these as soon as I consider it ready, but I don't see it in the next year and a half. now if you have a bit more money to spend, you can look a different rudder pedals like Crosswind ones. they seem to be superbly finished. you could also look at a Track IR v5 which seems to be a reasonable uprgrade from the previous one. you could also spend it into some 2nd hand G940. as said they are not really reliable but easilly fixed. this is what I did and I don't regret it at all. Despite small quirks, it is the first and only FFB hotas ever made. and the rudder pedals are included!! now If you plan to play modern flight sim, FFB would be irrelevant and I would go for something else on the hotas side, like X-55 or else. but I would go definitely for the TrackIR
  12. I gave up for tonight. I spent the whole evening between ATAG server for CloD with squadmates and continuously checking for updates. Bad news is I had to stop because of a BSOD, which happened again and again after that. I'd better crack open a beer and let this rest for the nest, nothing good come from night troubleshouting. good news is I will have a superclean PC for the arrival of the SP mode Cheers mates
  13. JagdNeun brought up the gold piece! to my eyes it is really the best starter you can make as a DIY cockpit. It is pretty cheap (under 80$ + an afternoon of building) ridiculously easy to assemble and pretty much all you need to feel into a real plane. I personnally like the fact it is compatible with my office chair, so the girlfriend don't have to strap herself into an ejector seat when checking facebook or email on my desktop. so definitely a good investment that I don't regret at all. I always wanted some of the Playseat or Obutto setups, but the price is way too high for my budget and RD stuff is a great little project
  14. by the way here is some doc I gathered while I was planning my work : - throttle wire replacement : http://littleguysbloog.blogspot.be/2012/08/g940-flight-system-throttle-r1-r2-fix.html http://mwomercs.com/forums/topic/105489-g940-throttle-fix/ - next step, pedal fix : http://mwomercs.com/forums/topic/105489-g940-throttle-fix/ in addition to that, instead of tightening wire connectors, I would like to solder it once and for all to the pots. - in the (near) future, stick improvement : http://forums.logitech.com/t5/Logitech-G-Controllers/Logitech-G940-HOTAS-some-hardware-tweaking/td-p/1224034 which is basically what you propose with a couple more instruction and pics (or is it definitely the same persons and it means I really need some sleep) I heard of some people putting a LeoBodnard board to replace the original one with some quite sucess. It seems to make spiking disappear, but I think it also render mode switch unusable. And quite franckly I can't think of using only one mode not that I am use to it. It should not be a concern for BoS, as the number of inputs seems reasonable. But once it comes to CloD, it is a totally different story and I have just enough inputs on the G940 so I don't have to move my hand from the hotas. I have seen a couple of stick length mod and quite franckly it is interesting. I wonder though if the larger lever made by the additional lenght wouldn't add some workload on the FFB motors. so much that they would wear out way faster or even brake them or brake a part in the mechanism. any thought on that?
  15. thanks for the infos mate. your posts helped me to take everything apart and the next step I mentioned was refering to your mods. I have had some cooling issue this summer, with the FFB going off due to overheating. my "man cave" being a small room of my 4th floor appartment, you can imagine than 2h+ coop made the temperature rise a bit... I once thought of drilling holes in the base to help, but it would have need a fan to circulate the air. so I am left with passive cooling system like the one you describe. I could also recut the part were the stick sit while I play. I made a floor mount according to rodger dodger blueprints. the base of the stick is a rectangle of 18mm wood. I think I will have to cut this piece in a X shape or something similar. it could help heat exchange. or even replace it with some aluminium plate or something close, but I have to think about the stiffness of the final mount. anyway, thanks for all the work you've done on this hotas. it lacks a couple of hour in the R&D labs, but at the hand it remains the only FFB hotas ever made and it even includes a rudder!! it is totally worth the priced I paid for it, I even ended up learning solder. which may lead to a whole new world of future projects. so it is a Win/Win situation at the end
