  1. I'm hoping with SC, we can maybe have CIC control in the Arleigh Burke. On the carrier itself, would nice if we could operate deck tugs. But whatever, CA has always been the forgotten module, so something instead of nothing would be an improvement in itself.
  2. Ugh.. can they put up a bundle for the Hornet + Supercarrier + Persian Gulf instead? I don't need another 33!
  3. Haha helloooo! I was just thinking the other day thank god home fries brought it to modern day but flying reloaded still makes me yearn for a proper remake (with added stuff like maybe adf/taw integration and better ground units), which I'm sure we will never get :( Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk
  4. Heh i just reinstalled it using the reloaded mod to play the campaign. :) Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  5. God i miss ef2000 campaign... Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk
  6. I think the failure point of this clone will be those plastic interface plates between the "wrench" arms and the spring connections. Not really sure what to call these calls really lol.
  7. Yeah but their price point is a necessary life force for our genre. It's hard to attract more attention to sims, let alone the hardware associated when the best stuff resides around$400+. It's a learning process though for sure. As you get more experience, you learn that saitek products are no longer fit for the purpose and then you make the decision to stay in and pay more, stay put and deal with the issue, or quit. I've had an X45, 2x X52s, 2x X65Fs, and the combat pedals. All had catastrophic issues that required RMA. I've learned now. My wife cringed though when she heard the price for the VKBs and how they are the cheaper of the robust products. Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk
  8. Update: i guess using Twitter helped as one of their support leads called me to resolve the situation. All is good now, though i no longer have pedals (for now!). Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk
  9. Hey guys, to answer your questions: They still haven't provided ample accommodation for the situation. US consumer protection laws require them to either repair, refund, or replace the product, of which they say they cannot repair units now, they discontinued the product, and they will not pay out anything in cash so no refund. Of course, i could choose to pursue this in small claims court, citing their inability to fulfil the warranty as part of the sales agreement (breach of contract). I've put them on blast on twitter and Reddit as well. If you do have problems with your unit, do NOT send it back. But you could reasonably try to claim lack of warranty as well. Vkbs are indeed my planned replacement. I considered the CH and the new TM ones, but the vkb's up/down motion is actually something i prefer. Anyhow, i hope to get more info soon. I have actually asked them to send me my pedals back including shipping costs I've incurred to send them, but they claim they cannot find my pedals because there is nothing to identify the unit. I told them to look underneath for the serial number... Lol. If they cannot provide that, then i may entertain the regular pro flights but would like to receive the difference in cash. They have only offered in products, which i have rejected because most of mad catz gear is absolute crap now. Then lastly, if these are not possible, then i may pursue small claims court for a full refund due to breach of contract (i would not have bought these pedals if they did not come with a 2 or more year warranty because of my prior experience with their x65f. The unit exhibited toe brake issues out of the box but they were not a problem until about 6 months in, when i had to increase the dead zone substantially to avoid the false registers. I think it is time that the saitek brand leaves the flight arena, but i know there are few low budget alternatives. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  10. After sending back my combat rudders to Saitek/Mad Catz for repair back in January, they informed today that the combat rudders have been officially discontinued and that i would receive the cheaper pro flight pedals to replace them. Obviously, I'm pretty pissed about this and told them i won't accept this switch, but i think my options are limited. They are not even offering to make up for the$100 difference between the combat and regular pedals. Anyone else face this same issue? Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk
  11. Sounds like you have a power supply issue. Your usb devices may be drawing too much power and there isn't enough juice left for the gpu. Check your amps needed or perhaps use a powered USB hub. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  12. I'm a saitek pro flight combat pedals user and can vouch for their poor quality. Kept crashing even the eagle on takeoff because they wouldn't stay centered. In process for RMA right now on bad toe brakes and center pot. This is something you have to expect with saitek, and the money you spend to ship for rma shipping will probably push you to get MFG or VKB pedals. Maybe CH if you have a way to scoot your nuts out of zone lol. PS saitek said they are OOS in the combat pedals until January. Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk
  13. I had the same problem. Have since just moved to using eyefinity on my AMD GPU and using 1 screen mode with full width resolution.
  14. Must the binding of a key to a buyer's account only to be done by the seller/former owner of a key? I did a license check as the buyer and I see no bind option, so I assume it has to be with the seller. Can someone confirm? I'm trying to get the modules to show up in 1.5, but as of right now, I can only fly them in 1.2.x. I've done the whole install module, insert serial number at the pop-up, and flown with the aircraft in multiplayer, but it still isn't bound to me. EDIT: Ok confirmed seller has to unbind then bind to new account. Alternatively, you could ask ED support to do so if you have the key already (as long as it's activated).
  15. Amen. Going with 8gb vram next. Missed the newegg deal on a r9 390 for $240 ish after tax and rebates. Pissed!
