    RAM. Is it specific (server/personal)?

    Hm, so, the RAM took it personal then? Too bad ...

    First Tuesday's Coop is in the BoX!

    Ah, that second video appears to be showing nicely what it was that brought my IL2 down... flak BOOM! Thanks for clearing that up for me! 😎
  4. Today
  5. From last nights coops;
  6. Yesterday
  7. Uhhhhh, yeah. Sigh. So I'm going to attempt to return them. Here's to hoping they take them back. Sigh again.
  8. Hurray!! I have spent ages trying all sorts of key mappings to correct the pilot's head position in the IL-2mod, 1942, all to no avail. It didn't matter what I did, I had obviously created a 'remove seat cushion' mod somewhere without knowing it as my view in the aircraft looking forward was like being von Smallhausen....I could not see over the top of the instrument panel cowl without standing up....not good for flying. I looked online, obviously where I should have gone first weeks ago, and found out that each aircraft pilot or gunner head position has a .svc file (or a _t1.svc file for example for a turret position) in the folder here: IL2 Battle of Stalingrad/data/LuaScripts/snapviews. Closing the game, deleting this file for the relevant aircraft position from the 'snapview' folder and then restarting the game resets the pilot's head position to default, creates a new .svc file and hey presto, allows me more BoX joy because I can see what I'm doing now. Simples. A much happier Sid. I don't feel so much like Sid Viscous now..... Cheerzen

    Okay, skip all video recordings, we only need audio. I've got enough good footage to finally make them older videos bearable, if I have proper voice audio!

    Oh dear, how sad, never mind
  11. Thanks for the mission last night Arthur. I have just set up Voice attack to log me in to the servers when I want to join A lot easier than taking the Rift off and trying to see which key I am pressing without my glasses on.

    Finally upgraded my PC!!

    Crazy prices indeed, near double currently. but what choice do we have? Could have gone with an ATI equivalent but I have so little knowledge of them, as this will likely be my last GPU purchase for 6+ years it seemed a good investment..

    RAM. Is it specific (server/personal)?

    Ah the old I D 10 T Error 😉

    Finally upgraded my PC!!

    Yeah GPU's prices are insane thanks to the Bitcoin mining stuff. 😞

    Watcha Got Cookin'?

    Well yes, but not freshly opened 😉 Had it been fresh it would of spread better I'm certain.

    Finally upgraded my PC!!

    So that 770 of mine? It made a loud popping noise Sunday night, and BSOD ensued on every boot (plus artifacts during boot). 4 years old... Replaced with a 1080SC EVGA model, 8GB DDR5X RAM and boy, night and day! So DCS is smooth, F15C at supersonic is so smooth... Shame about the $600 I had to drop to get back up and running 😄😂
  18. Soooo... about RAM. Did I miss something with regards to a requirement to format it or something? I pulled out my old 4GB, threw in one 16 into the exact slot, and the CPU wouldn't start. Got a "long beep, two short beeps" from it, and nothing else. Something tells me a BIOS update is in order to get it to recognize the new RAM...? Update: I'm an idiot. Board does not accept anything over 8GB individual sticks. It's not going to recognize any 16 GB stick, no matter who makes it. Yay.
  19. Last week

    I got a weekend ticket for a shade under £60 last night, it has now gone up to £70.
  21. And lucky there was a set of wings nearly complete in the States which they could use.

    Piece of Cake - 30 years ago

    Good points perf I gotta read that book. I have read Goshawk Squadron which was a good read but not nearly as good as Piece of cake. And, a lot shorter story by the way.

    Piece of Cake - 30 years ago

    Funny you should say that. I just finished A Good Clean Fight a few weeks back. Pop quiz: your engine is running so rough that you can't read the compass at all to tell what direction is home. Do you: 1. climb till the engine quits and glide home with a stable compass 2. look at the sun and guess at a heading home 3. immediately bail out near the German base you just finished shooting up I can forgive some things in the interest of a good story but doesn't the Tomahawk have a US style compass that stays stable unlike the early navy compass the Hurri and Spit have? Oh it gets better.... the Germans send out a motorcycle and side car to check out the crash site visible by a huge smoke column and find the pilot walking. They can't seem to figure out the way back to their own base they just left !!! so they get the British pilot to navigate back to base for them.. (he's a pilot right... so obviously he knows how to read a compass.. I guess the German compass needs a decoder ring or an enigma machine).. they notice nothing as he takes them miles and miles and miles back to the British base....... The entire book on audio is 21 hrs. I got more out of the 4 hrs of Fighter Pilot.
  26. One would imagine it wasn't fully up at point of impact, but said impact planted the undercarriage into its wells!
  27. How on earth did he manage to get the gear up before belly landing?
