I am still a few weeks away from shipping out some production prototypes to DCS centers of influence, so just let me know if you would like one.

Thanks,

Very interesting tech Miles! Please send me a private message.

Wags, can we talk cable management for a moment?

Haha kidding. Love all the standby HOTAS. Do you have a favorite? I assume the Hornet? Personally I love the VPC T-50 base with the TMWH grip... have you tried the hornet grip with the T50 base?

Nice insight and setup, thank you for sharing.

This also explains why your tutorial videos are always sharp and smooth.


I can suggest though that you also keep a mid-tier PC ( i.e. a 6700k with 1070 or 1060 ) to feel what's DCS like for most DCS fans and customers.



As the producer, it's an experience that you should live in first person and not through reports.


It's my humble opinion, if this is out of contest please delete this reply.

We have plenty of other systems in our development studio and testers for that. Limited room here.

Soooo Matt, does being a DCS employee let you write off gaming rigs as a business expense?

While everybody else focuses on the HW I'd like a better look at that Hornet painting on your wall.


Very nice. I struggle to find military / aviation art myself. Can we get a better photo and maybe tell us who the artist is?

Awesomeness

What about the monitors and resolution? (both in-game and for the Windows desktop: I am looking at going 4K for my Windows desktop, which seems to be the resolution on your primary system, and hesitating going to 32" or 40")
