  1. You English and your Amstrads and your Sprectrums…
  2. C64 Gunship was afaik the very first "realistic" combat sim of the 80s. There was a Flight Simulator already, vector based and all. But the Gunship was a game changer. It came in a box with 2 floppies and a whole bible's worth of instructions.
  3. Am I the oldest to post here yet? Not to mention the next one where I could fly missions over Kola and land at Bardufoss!
  4. They were used by the Germans in the battle of Normandy apparently: I found this online: https://www.history.navy.mil/research/library/online-reading-room/title-list-alphabetically/g/gaf-invasion-normandy.html#III Chapter III paragraphs 16, 17, 20, 22, 24... and onwards, just search for torpedo in the document.

    You'll need a separate debit card for that account my friend. I understand why it can feel scary to leave card details online, it requires a degree of trust. Now, I've never had any problems with Xolla Payments, which is the company that processes the payments for IL2. Or make a new paypal account maybe?

    I had a paranoid friend once, he had two methods for this. 1. use a credit card to pay the balance. if your credit card is charged wrongly, or used by swindlers - the credit card company is responsible. when you get your monthly bill, you can easily check what has been charged before you pay it. 2. Have a separate account with a debit card. In this account you have a balance of 0, then transfer in just the right amount of money before purchase. The rest of the time, the account is empty. That said, I think it's safe to leave your details with Xolla payments, I wouldn't worry about it.
  7. I've not used the software, nor do I know what telemetry IL-2 exports, but surely IL-2 exports the aircraft's position and orientation in 3 dimensions over time? That should be sufficient to calculate any forces acting upon the aircraft to the resolution and accuracy allowed by the time interval. Wouldn't it? (Of course, if the time interval becomes rather large, this will affect the accuracy of calculations)
  8. If your motherboard supports M2 SSD, I'd seriously consider that option and get that as an additional SSD. They've come down in price, I got mine for around 100 USD (256GB version). Just make sure you have the mounting screw and spacer in your motherboard box! I'd lost mine and had to go on ebay for a replacement. If it doesn't, get another SATA 2,5" SSD drive, they are even cheaper pr gigabyte, I think they are around 120USD for a whopping terrabyte, and even cheaper for 500Gb. I dont recommend running a game through an external drive, the USB is a bottleneck for speed there.
  9. If you play on multiplayer servers, surely this would be a server side setting?

    Gun Camera.

    Not with TARGET software, you can program events on both button down and button up.

    Gun Camera.

    If you have a joystick that have programmable keys, this would be rather easy to implement. Using TARGET software with the Thrustmaster HOTAS, I could for instance program an ingame recording keystroke on both button down and button up events for the trigger. You will get a lot of mission recordings though....
  12. some useful laws: - there is a finite amount of energy in the universe - energy cannot be created or destroyed, only change form also - whenever you convert energy into another form, you never get 100% out of the process - the rest is lost usually through heat dissipation - the most efficient conversion from mechanic to electric energy is via generators, usually above 90% - whenever a heat machine is involved (steam engine), in coal, nuclear or solar reflector powerplants, efficiency is much lower you should start with a bit of googling on the subject, im sure there are plenty of material for beginners out there (khan academy) pick one renewable you like, or that is applicable where you live and start from there. Something to do with solar panels, or zero-emission housing should be available online in abundance. If your paper is angled from a programmers perspective, such systems have (an need) a lot of automation and regulation both automatic and by human interaction. If you find a company nearby who are dealing in this kind of things, contact them!
  13. With solar energy you have both solar panels (photovoltaic) and solar reflecting systems. Then you have wind turbines and ocean wave systems harnessing motion created by the weather systems (in turn driven by solar energy and earth rotation) Finally you have biofuel, utilising the ability of plants to convert solar energy and molecules from air into hydrocarbons. And of course hydroelectric power, where that is feasible. (And geothermic). You'll need to be a bit more specific about the requirements of your term paper, but this is essentially what is available technologies at the moment. Familiar with the laws of thermodynamics?
  14. The devs don't necessarily have to implement from scratch. They could f. instance license a TeamSpeak client and some version of the ACRE module (from ArmA series) and have that integrated into the game. It would be hella cool, wouldn't it? But I have no idea if that is even feasible, technically or legally.
  15. Fixed a sound bug in the Me262 for me at least! Edit: Sneaksie beat me to it Great work as usual!
