    Big Freeze

    Not sure if this is related to the freeze I experienced tonite, but when I exited the game I had a msg from Windows that the location of my temporary internet files had been moved from its default location and did I want to diagnose the issue. I, of course, said yes and it found the files moved to my D drive and moved it back to the C drive. Just throwing that out. I can up my network speed to 100mbs (symmetrical) if need be for DCS. Hey it's only $20 a month more and if that is what it takes to keep blowing up tents, I'm there 🤣🤣🤣!
  2. I am running an I5-6600 and a gtx 1060 6gb and a 500w ps and run almost wide open in Box, CLoD, 1946 and a tad lower in DCS and never get south of 60fps normally staying in the 90 -120 range on a 144hz monitor. Same Bazooka mother board. I purposely didn't get anything overclockable to keep myself in check. I have 16gb of DDR4 2133 and will upgrade to 32gb of DDR4 2400 when the cost of ram drops some. Again, file this in the what its worth column 😅!
  3. I'm a noobie with DD but long in the tooth with IL2. I am currently using the Thrustmaster T.16000m FCS HOTAS and CH Products rudder pedals. I don't do any jets in DCS yet so they work out well. I have both the CH products Combat Stick and throttle but they are 12 years old now and I need to rebuild them some day. I have the parts but not ambition since the Thrustmaster stuff is working good and were relatively inexpensive compared to a lot of the stuff out there. Anyway, that's my .02 cents worth. Good luck with your hunt.

    Whatcha Flyin'?

    I have been reading the same and am waiting for RAM prices to come down a bit. I have 16gb of DDR4 2133. My motherboard will handle up to DDR4 2400 but right now 32gb of DDR4 2400 is a bit more than I wanna spend (see my other posts about paying for horse stuff). I don't have any problems on the Caucasus map offline with a few aircraft but have never been online with it.

    I may add the Normandy map/WWII asset pack and maybe, just maybe the Spit 😊! But paying for horses, saddles and other rather expensive horse-sh$t is taking a lot of my mad money right now 😅😅😅!
  6. Well damn, missed another one. But, we were out hunting for horse tack. When she sold her last horse, all her English tack went with the horse (Yes, she rides/rode English growing up on the East coast - Virginia - riding hunters and jumpers). So now she needs a new set but she is too damn short (4'11") for most pre built Western saddlery and custom stuff is way too rich for us. So, we are going Australian. So now that I have bored you with crap you didn't want to know, I hope to see ya Thursday 😅!

    DCS WW2 Sale

    I am waiting for the Nevada map, the F86 and F5 to go on sale. BoX, CLoD and 1946 scratch my WW2 itch 😆.

    What a Hoot

    😁 Just downloaded and installed ROF. These kites are a blast but will take some getting used to. When I have the "need to creep-along", ROF will be my go to 😁. At least there are not a lot of key mapping to do.

    Whatcha Flyin'?

    Right now I have the P51 and the original Caucuses map. Still a clutz with it as I don't fly it often enough. I want to get the Nevada map and F86 and F5 (that's about as "high tech" as I can handle 😆), but waiting on a sale.

    Whatcha Flyin'?

    After flying CLoD tonite, what did/do you fly in DCS? Just want to know what I would need if I ever could join in the fun. ..
  11. 👍👍👍👍
  12. I see that now about the times as I read more. Feel like a complete noob at times. That's what I get for staying out of the virtual skies for almost 8 years. Got a lot of rust removal to do 😁!
  13. I didn't look at operational times. If it favors North American time, then that would be a problem for GMT folks.
  14. Any interest in this sort of thing? New campaign starting in "two weeks". I registered (Allies) just out of curiosity. http://www.twomoreweeks.net/tactical-air-war-is-back/ Haven't read up on it to any detail. I know DD have a full plate of flying nights, so I am just throwing this out for chewing.
