  1. Try to contact them here: http://www.protu-154.org/forum/
  2. My city :-) More correct name would be Archangel City or City of Archangel.
  3. Hi Oskar, Try to remove (backup and delete) this file - FSX/linda-cfg/aircrafts/A2A_Piper_PA24_Comanche/config-hid.lua. This will wipe out any joystick assignments for that aircraft and should fix the problem.
  4. Owned: 1. Saitek Pro Flight Cessna Yoke $195 2. CH Products Eclipse Yoke $194 Saitek wins. The only yoke with 180 degrees of turn and better overall design (not so toy-looking).
  5. What performance boost did you expect? There should be no higher FPS inside FSX, but higher rate of scenery generation and therefore less blurries at higher flight speeds. Also you should notice that TP uses several cores of your CPU now (look into process manager for that). And FPS should be pretty much the same as with Beta8.
  6. Sure you 'could'! Just don't want... which is ok for sure. Saitek Yoke (Cessna one?) travel is not bigger than, let's say, X-55 or any other popular joystick - same 70-80mm. Moreover, you control them with different set of muscles and joystick deflection you do with much more sensitive and precise part of your hands - wrist (against the shoulder for yoke). But definitely agree, that desktop joystick with short stick will not provide correct muscle memory and feel of real stick in a real airplane and even more - of a real yoke. I've used to fly with yoke at home. Expensive custom built yoke with steel shaft, ball bearings and 180mm travel distance, and then learned to fly on P92JS which is with stick and had NO problems converting to it. And later got several hours in C172 and C182 - and no problem too. The difference in feel between consumer level controllers - no matter yoke or joystick - and real thing is so HUGE, that it absolutely doesn't matter what you use in sim. Home (consumer) sim flight skill is non-convertable to real airplane at all. That's why it actually doesn't matter what you will use - joystick or joy-yoke. And that's why it's better to use highest quality mechanics you can get for the same money - and that's inside joysticks, not the yokes. But for fancy entertainment reasons using good yoke in sim is more fun and 'realistic'. That's why I invested big funds into expensive yoke. But now selling it in exchange to good and MUCH CHEAPER joystick with long stick tweak. And that's not because of P92JS love - I'm flying in Cessnas mostly.
  7. Consumer level joysticks technology is much more advanced and polished than for consumer level yokes. CH and Saitek yokes all have the same flaws - sticky shafts and little travel length in elevator axis, which makes them mostly unusable if you want to do a good flare on landing. Even far more expensive devices like those from PFC and GoFlight have about 70mm travel in elevator (same as Saitek and CH). May be they are not sticky though. So, joystick is a better choice for the same money in most cases. And to be clear. Good joystick gives more realistic 'feel' than a bad yoke. Even if you fly 737 and moreover if you fly GA airplanes.
  8. Not sure about Samsung, mine are LGs - those have Dynamic Contrast and Dynamic Color functions. Samsung can use other names for that. My system is i3770k@4400 + GTX780, overall resolution set 720 + 1920 + 720 x 1280.
  9. Why not? TVs have some advantages: 1. Price to size ratio. 2. Wide rage of refresh rates - 30/50/60 - allows you to get stutter free setup with VSync on. 3. Picture controls in TV - gives you flexible control and tuning on your taste (i.e. no HDR required with TV's Dynamic Contrast) Picture quality is more than enough for simming and other gaming. Not enough for photo editing though.

    At least 50% or more... The feel, fear, and excitement of flight are not achievable in sim, however real flying for the one who do this quite often becomes the same usual thing as driving a car. And from this moment it's mostly "just a work to be done" - planning, navigating, communicating and - definitely NOT the biggest part of flying! - pilotage itself. Sim doesn't provide pilotage sense and excitement, but it allows to perfectly replicate the pilot's workload and all emotional rewards from being able to deal with this workload. Go PilotEdge network, jump into default C172 and try to conduct a simple visual flight from non-towered to class-B airport (and get rid of GPS if you want more sharp sensations). Forget of pilotage, concentrate on just following flying rules in real busy airspace. Flying is not pilotage. So the weakest part of sim is not such a problem at all. But if you want exactly the FEEL OF FLIGHT, then sim will not help. And even though good models like A2A C182 will teach you most of skills required to fly real plane. You will not feel the flare moment and some other specific things, but most of flying science is at your disposal with sim. p. s. Even if someone cannot get PPL, it's always possible to take several private flight lessons with instructor to get "the feel". And note here: many (most?) first solo flights are made after 10-15 hours of flight instruction. So it's not that hard as it could seem. But takeoff-and-landing skill is not what makes a pilot, it's just one part of it and not the biggest one. p. p. s. And one more... if real flight is not an option then find the real flight instructor and ask him for several lessons IN SIM (and don't forget to pay him to get actual lessons and not just fiddling around). You will be surprised how different will become your relations with sim.

  12. D-Link DUB-H7 7-Port USB 2 Hub http://us.dlink.com/products/connect/7-port-usb-2-hub/ Nice and stable with good power source.
  13. Just like it so much... (kidding) Multi-PC sim. ASN doesn't allow to be installed on two systems simultaneously.
