  1. 4670 should not be that much better than a 2600, which is still very fast for its age. Also, I would not recommend upgrading from a 1060 to a 1070. It's just too much money for the increase in performance. Better to wait for a better upgrade opportunity. Perhaps when the 2060 is released? Blue light filtering can be done in software.

    VKB, Still...

    Not sure what you're asking, exactly, but I doubt they have procedures in place for selling products other than through their webshops.

    Announcing Project VPC MongoosT-50

    This doesn't affect me at all, but am I understanding correctly that they only offer a desktop base now? Isn't this kind of a big deal?
  4. Ok, maybe not "always", but here is the first mention of it in this thread at least:
  5. Well they always said it would come after the first product, and since they're only now starting to ship that, I wouldn't expect the ministick version for a while, but I wouldn't discount it just yet.

    Old theme?

    I've only used it for like one minute, but so far my main issue is the post actions area, which is very strangely placed. It should not be above the signature, and it should be anchored to the bottom (or top) of the post instead of sitting right below the post content.

    Announcing Project VPC MongoosT-50

    Ministick version was said to come "shortly afterwards", so... hopefully Q2 at least?
  8. Would make them useless for anything else where you wouldn't want that, though. But a center detent would certainly be useful. Isn't it easy to accidentally press the wrong button on 4 way hats?

    Hold-to-activate bindings

    Ok, now I realise what Inkoslav meant, and we're not talking about the same thing. He's talking about needing to press a button for a short moment before action is taken, but I'm talking about something activating when you press the button, and deactivating when you release it. Eg press to turn on cockpit lights, release to turn them off. This doesn't make sense for regular buttons, of course, but it does for flip switches.

    Hold-to-activate bindings

    Can't edit the title now, but I have decided to downgrade my suggestion to just having separate on and off bindings. Clearly hold bindings are difficult to implement, but I can't imagine adding on and off bindings in addition to the existing toggle bindings should be all that difficult. It's not ideal, but at least you won't risk getting stuck with "inverted" switches. Planning to get the Virpil throttle when it's released, so this would be really handy!
  11. So, it mentions further information regarding availability and shipping dates. When might we expect that? It wasn't mentioned anywhere that I know, but the store says available on December 12. Also what's the deal with the version with the mini thumbstick? Is that something that's coming later, or simultaneously?

    A RAM question

    Faster RAM generally does not give you a noteworthy performance improvement in games. What matters is that you have enough. You already have DDR4? How much?

    My comments on the delay of PTO development.

    As far as I remember, plans for Pacific was revealed at the same time as BoK preorder opened, so Pacific was obviously the plan at that point. BoB would've been decided some time between then and now. Will strong BoB sales indicate a desire for more EU content? I don't know, but Jason made it clear that he wants to go Pacific as soon as possible, and if you're not willing to believe that then that's another question. Most of all, though, I think it's fair to give them one chance. They misjudged the efforts required for Pacific and are unlikely to do so again. If Pacific isn't the next title after BoP (even though they have not said that it will be) then I will have more sympathy for the Pacific lovers.

    Historical Campaign "Blazing Steppe"

    Hi, I don't know what the status of the upcoming career mode is, but will that in any way affect these scripted campaigns? Or are they completely unrelated?

    My comments on the delay of PTO development.

    It clearly says they're working with other studios for that purpose. There's not gonna be a preorder until all the groundwork is laid. At least, that's how I interpret their business model. Preordering does not equal funding. (for that game) Preordering funds future titles, but once preorders are up for a title, its budget is already secured and the title is designed and it's essentially just a matter of time before it's released. You want to fund Pacific titles? Good news, you now have several more opportunities to do so. If it makes you feel better you can pretend that the three announced titles don't exist and Pacific is coming in a few years regardless.
