  1. First, please allow me to apologize if I'm in the wrong area, but as far as I can tell, this and input/output seem to have the most articles of nearly this type. Also, excuse my Noob-osity. I have no excuse, other than a rapidly diminishing memory (TBI-Induced) that has made learning particularly challenging lately, so I really should be further along with this at this point. As well as flying and operating skills, I've managed to learn next to nothing about what seems like the next logical step after VR: the tactile and inner-ear sensations that only a full-motion seat and-or tho

  3. So what exactly is the slew upgrade, and how does it make flying easier/better?
  4. Hi ! I've just got a couple quick questions: First-what is the best software for recording what I see in my VR display while playing DCS, and second- what kind of single-throw switch would I need to buy to replace the EAC: Arm/Off switch on the Warthog throttle? I have been using D3D, but the "game" and "oculus Rift" modes do not work with DCS, only "desktop", and DCS only occupies the middle third of my desktop display when playing DCS. As far as the switch; does anyone know if it's just a typical DPST or SPST switch? Which one? Whould you go somewhere like Mouser to find it? Thank
  5. I'm really not certain. It says "Up to 1000 MBPS download speed", so whatever that means in standard usage. I'm not as computer-savvy as I'd like to be ,or ought to be, considering the obscene amounts of money I mindlessly blow on this stuff, which drives my wife crazy. When I'm selling the latest gadget purchase to her, though, I sound like an IT guru.
  6. Our internet service provider, Cox, is offering me "for a limited time only!" a service called Gigablast. I currently have download speeds of up to 170 or so megabytes per second, depending on what time of day it is, etc. For$27 more (plus some other hidden charges, no doubt, like a faster modem/router rental), I can get up to a gigabyte per second download speed, or, for about $20 more, I can get up to 550 MBPS. Right now, we have a desktop, a laptop, a tablet, and 2 fartphones. I play DCS and a lot of other VR games, and we watch Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu. I could be wrong, bu
  7. No expert here, but I always thought that DCS in VR benefitted more from a better graphics card, if you already had a decent CPU? I also thought that the 1080ti and 2080ti were better at this than the 1080 and 2080, respectively, and that the 2080s only gave you a noticable improvement in games that used ray-tracing?
  8. I could be wrong, but it seems to me that you'd be better off going with at least 1Tb in one NVMe, rather than two 500Gb NVMe's. If down the road you want more things on this type of drive, you can always add a second NVMe that's either 1 or 2 TB, and you won't have that 500Gb one collecting dust. I've got two 1Tb ones, and I wish that I had just gotten a 2Tb one instead. It would be great to have all my games and OS on these drives. There's also the fact that these perform better and last longer if they're not packed to the rafters.
  9. Hi all! How is everybody? I'm getting ready to unplug all external and internal drives (8 of them) with the exception of the C-Drive, because it's been 2 years since I bought a new MB, CPU, PSU, M2 drives, GPU, and RAM sticks, loaded it all in the old box, and installed Windows 10, and everything is slowing down and getting buggy, especially installed games. Bitmaster gave me some excellent advice, very patiently going back and forth with me via PM, and I want to give him a break for a bit, though I'm sure he would go on for ages without complaining if I never stopped. One of the thi
  10. I might just buy this, if only to have a working set of headphones and working cable when these inevitably crap the bed on mine. I'll check back in a few weeks when I have some expendable money. Are you selling this because you got newer gear? If so, what did you get? I can't imagine that VR lost its novelty.
  11. "Dont mess with created jobs, Acronis' weak spot imho." What is this, please?
  12. Can you explain this a little further:"I highly recommend to invest 50-100€ in a Desktop version of Acronis, set it up ONCE and let it run. Do not alter the jobs once created, rather delete them and make them new. " Also, I have a 10Tb Fantom drives USB 3.1 drive to use for backing everything up. What I want to do is get all of my irreplacable stuff, like pictures, music, documents etc onto this drive, and do fresh installs of programs, apps, and of course Windows, so does it make sense for me to delete games,(many of which have been acting buggy lately), DCS, programs, etc BEFORE I do a ba
  13. I'm so sorry to hear about your colleague! How long did you know him? Which of the Acronis apps do you recommend? Thank you!
  14. Hey BitMaster! I just joined! I'm on a medium cycle for now, but after I reinstall the OS, I'll do more. Speaking of; can you give me some guidance on this? I got a 10TB back-up drive, and some software that looks up license keys. Can you give me any other advice for doing this as smoothly and effectively as possible? Oh yeah; I also got some backup software called AOMEI that's supposed to make this as painless and fool-proof as possible, but I trust you more.
