    Suncom F-15e Raptor advice

    Mine has 15 pins. And after looking I realized my model is the F15e Raptor, not Talon. Slight difference, but not huge.

    Suncom F-15e Raptor advice

    It definitely feels solid and has a great tactile experience to it. At some point in the future, I'm going to pick up a regular adapter and try it with that. I'm pretty sure what makes that high-end adapter expensive are the parts to load firmware on there to make it fully plug-n-play, but since...

    Suncom F-15e Raptor advice

    Ok, decided to join the growing bandwagon and ChatGPT this. I think I've found the right drivers, so I might spend a couple bucks in the future to get the 9-pin serial to USB adapter and try it out later.

    Suncom F-15e Raptor advice

    Holy shit, the dedicated adapter costs more than a VKB Gladiator. I've also seen someone rig it through an older keyboard with a serial port input and from there into a modern computer for not too much, but that kind of creates a mess in the area I'm working in and I don't have much room. I'll...

    Suncom F-15e Raptor advice

    I was digging through boxes of my old stuff and uncovered this old beast I had stuffed away and forgotten. Back in highschool I used to play it with things like Air Warrior, MS Flight Simulator, X-Wing, TIE Fighter. It was a great stick. Cost/effort wise, would it be worth converting from...

    PTU 3.18 Available (Wave 2!)

    If you were looking forward to that big patch that was supposed to come out today... The Austin offices are in an area currently hit with power outages from severe weather, so I'm expecting it to get pushed back a day or two... or three.... or..... But I'm not a CIG representative, so dafuq do...

    PTU 3.18 Available (Wave 2!)

    I think the bit there in asset creation is about the team implementing the new tool features and parts into the game. For those who don't know what is being discussed, the station on the Vulture that spits out the salvage crates can also be used to 'craft' multitools, the tractor attachment...

    PTU 3.18 Available (Wave 2!)

    In your contract manager will be a mission to get you started with racing, a time-trial qualifier just outside of Lorville. I'm not sure what comes after, as my Merlin randomly decided to self-detonate on checkpoint 15 of 16 on the track. Things to note on prison gameplay: there is a mission...

    WTB Scorpius and/or eclipse

    Getting the Eclipse at cost is pretty good. If you don't find someone with a Scorpius, keep in mind the Invictus event will be coming up in a couple of months to get it there.

    WTB the C2 Bomber.

    Yea, absolutely great timing for the OP. Think it is there until Feb 6.

    Anvil Hurricane will have a price bump post 3.18

    Will be doing that, although the Vanguard has been my go-to heavy fighter. Didn't see it mentioned in the post, but have they posted elsewhere what it is going up to?

    Game that been in development longer than SC!

    Dwarf Fortress would like to have a word with you. 20 years and still going. But then again it's been open to the public, so fewer people complaining.

    WTB the C2 Bomber.

    If you contact customer support, they are usually good about temporarily enabling limited-time ships for purchase to people who inquire. I've done it a couple of times when I missed an event. Or at least they tend to do it through the Concierge portal. They usually don't say no to people looking...

    For those of you who have sporadic Crashes to Desktop

    I've edited my post to include a TL/DR for my TL/DR. .... On a side note, I could really go on about explaining what a computer is. There are some fascinating aspects to the definition and the origin of the field of Computer Science, as the field predates what today we think of to be a computer.

    For those of you who have sporadic Crashes to Desktop

    Very short/simplified explanation of Hyperthreading: It can take a single core and make it act like two cores, allowing for more to be accomplished at once. E-cores: In order to lower the power eaten by CPUs, instead of having all the same powerful cores, the CPU has a selection of P-cores (...

    For those of you who have sporadic Crashes to Desktop

    Hyperthreading is Intel's trademarked name for Simultaneous Multi-Threading, a technology used by several other manufacturers on their higher-end chips. The technology itself is not unique to Intel, just the name. Process Lasso also supports manipulating SMT alongside HT and I am fairly sure...

    For those of you who have sporadic Crashes to Desktop

    After suffering them for a while, disabling Hyperthreading specifically for Star Citizen seems to have alleviated the issue. I had initially tried it system-wide through the BIOS, but this led to some problems when trying to multitask with something CPU heavy like Star Citizen running. You can...
