  1. I'm all for more simplified models. I have a busy life, career, family, etc. I simply don't have the time to learn the new modules. I would love to just hop in and have a basic arcade like dogfight from time to time.
  2. Great idea! You got me thinking... I wonder if there's a way to have an iPad synced with the game and displaying the map, you could then "draw" on the iPad... Like a virtual knee pad but with the actual F10 map. Just a thought. :)
  3. Thanks for the reply. I'm going to assume the $1,100 Samsung will give the same frustrations plus some.
  4. Are you still enjoying this monitor? I currently have a 40" Samsung 1080P 120Hz I'm using as my simpit monitor and I'm thinking about upgrading to a 55" 4k curved screen. I will probably be getting a Samsung in the $1,500 range.
  5. Bumping a year old thread. We are doing this again this coming weekend, Sept 4-6 2015. Come on out to Lancaster, Texas. There will be an airshow going on at the same time with lots of WWII aircraft flying. Cockpitfest USA site:http://cockpitfestusa.org/?page_id=454
  6. Thanks for your time Brisse. I won't be able to check on this further for a few days but I'll post back my findings at that time. Thanks again!
  7. Woohoo it is sale time! Now to decide on what to get... huuuummmmmmm
  8. It is not optional to not use an effect. Once DCS starts, my receiver display goes from "no digital input" to "pro logic II music" automatically. I can then change to movie, stereo, or stereo x2. It does this no matter what my sound card software is set to (PCM, Dolby, DTS). I'm beginning to think that DCS doesn't have true surround sound and it is just stereo that can be sent to rear speakers also. That's what it seems like to me so far. PS-It is set to 6 channel in sound card settings. Here is a link to my sound system manual, page 8 shows effects: http://www.logitech.com/reposito
  9. Thanks guys. I have it set to DTS Interactive and it seem to be working okay in DCS. One thing that adds to my confusion is while in DCS I can change the "effect" setting on the surround system (Logitech Z550) from stereo, stereo x 2, Dolby Movie, Dolby Music. I've been leaving it set to Dolby Music and it sounds good. I can't tell that I am getting true surround from any settings. It just sounds like the same noise repeated on the rear speakers. Should I just hear engines, for example, on the rear speakers? Can anyone think of a good test I could do to test the surround in DCS?
  10. Hello everyone. I am hoping someone can answer my question. I have done a little searching on the topic but have just confused myself further. I have a HT Omega Stiker 7.1 sound card http://www.htomega.com/striker.html hooked up to a Logitech Z550 5.1 system via an optical cable. My sound card setup has three options for the digital (optical) output: PCM, Dolby Digital Live, and DTS Interactive. Anyone know which I should leave it on for DCS?
  11. Wait But Why is a website that I love. Check it out if you've never heard of it: http://waitbutwhy.com/ The latest article is on Elon Musk, link here: http://waitbutwhy.com/2015/05/elon-musk-the-worlds-raddest-man.html I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! If you are wondering what else to read on that website, I highly recommend the two part article on AI. Link: http://waitbutwhy.com/2015/01/artificial-intelligence-revolution-1.html
  12. Thanks for all of the replies. I forgot about the past "summer sales".
  13. Looking great!! I like the multi-role pits. My only problem with mine so far is remembering how I setup my profiles for each aircraft! I need to get a little more organized... Thanks for sharing, keep us updated.
  14. I just get moved into a new place and I'm ready to get back to simming more often. I only have Blackshark 2, P-51D, and A-10C. I really want to try some of these new modules but if I wait for a sale I could buy a few extra! Can someone refresh my memory from years past? Maybe a Memorial day sale coming up?
