  1. We are still suffering from the old King Karl/Charles/Carolus XII words before the battle in Kliszów 1702 in Poland: "Hungry dogs bite best"....
  2. CV9040 in Swedish ISAF texture with a mobile camouflage systems to reduce the thermal signature. Ongoing work....
  3. Congratulations eSim to the first 10 years! All the best from Sweden! /MatsW
  4. We use CH MFP/DX1 a lot because you can "translate" the keystrokes into functions (like W = Forward) so it shortens the time to learn different positions. Especially if the students rotate on different positions like Commander, Gunner and Driver. We more or less take away the ordinary keyboard and replace it with one or two MFP. The other use of it is to have a "real" panel (like gunners panel in CV9040) as background and use the keys for different functions on that panel. If you are an experienced gamer that just use one position more or less, you would probably find the ordinary keyboard good enough. Perhaps the more complicated keystrokes like CTRL DELETE would be good to simplify on a MFP. MatsW Swedish Land Warfare Centre
  5. Hi Quagmire We use (zero) one or two for every client depending on the players position as TC or gunner. We have been testing different layouts including the one at Touchbuddy website but we have also configured some by ourselfs for the Strv 122 and CV9040. The touchscreen we use are some 10.1 inches with traditional 4:3. I have attached some pictures with one "SBPro screen", one mapscreen and one touchscreen with a TouchBuddy profile. It also shows a older version of the Multi Function Panel and the Leo2-gunner handle from AFVSim. I find the profile easy to setup and with fast response. We have only used it with SBPro so it´s hard to compare with any other sim. The Ronner.net link is from good old days but I will take it away shortly. Cheers MatsW
  6. We have been using the TouchBuddy software with touchscreens now and then. We have a set up with one or two touchscreens for TC or Gunner for Strv 122 or CV9040. The software is simple to use and it reduces the time to learn SBPro functions compared to use an ordinary keyboard. Nickname "Zorlac" on Touchbuddy did help us.

It's Brandenburg and Irvington area in US, Kentucky. Not Brandenburg in Germany. The terrain file is the 1,0 version with terrain around Irvington but with not so many buildings.
