Re: Ready or Not (S.W.A.T)

The FPS shooter that really scared me was Thief. Especially in that haunted cathedral. It sill makes me shiver just to think about it.

Re: Hell of a week...

Xpen, You sir are a great man and a great son. That is a whole lot to deal with and it sounds like you did it with a great amount of patience, strength, and perseverance. You should be proud, as well as your family. I'm glad that things are relatively calmed down now. Moreso, I am glad your dad is O...

Re: Screenshots / Videos

Creeper,

The HUD is not to be trusted for attitude. Everyone I talked to about it agrees that it is not representative of the waterline but no one can give me a reason why they did it that way. They just say that the VSI is what you should trust for attitude.

Re: 78 years ago today...

Ah, yes, that was the one...got stories mixed up. The VP of my company passed away in his 90s a few years ago. He was a B-17 bombardier. He had a few stories to tell me but I wish I could have gotten more. I asked if he ever saw an Me-262 and he said yes. They were all like "WTF is that?!?"...

Re: Snowfox 072022

Nice job! I wish I could have joined you. When I got freed up to fly, I had an issue with my headset where I was not getting any audio and the mic was dead. After troubleshooting failed, I had to reboot the computer before it worked again. By the time I was back and running and back in the server, y...

Re: A general question about flight sims

I was flying "combat" in FSX for a shile until a few years ago. I have the VRS Super Bug (F/A-18E Super Hornet complete with all the weapons and systems) and Aerosoft F-14 (complete with all the weapons and LANTIRN). Both good add-ons.

You might be interested in Anthropoid starring Cillian Murphy about the Heydrich assassination. In the film which is pretty accurate, the boy bringing food to the assassins was in real life a young girl and was my Great Aunt Tessie. She also escaped Czechoslovakia in reality. I read Rommel's biogra...

This is that dogfight from Bones POV.... https://youtu.be/2z6tTFxMyL8 Cool, I love seeing the other angles. I figured out too late that me carrying (2) heavy Phoenix missiles were not helping me make tight enough turns to dogfight. That's why I decided to just try to shoot them at him to at least l...

Re: Wed, 20 July, DCS

So far I may or may not be there tonight, and if I do it may be in limited capacity. Also, I vote that this should be moved to the DCS Sorties forum, it seems more appropriate there. The announcement that we are flying can be made in the game session/mission times forum, as well as people saying whe...
