  1. Okay, finally had it happen in another game. I have a short somewhere in the stick I gotta fix. Was finally able to replicate it in the properties for the joystick and sure enough, EVERY button lights up when stick is full forward left and I press one. *grumble* Now back to your regularly scheduled program. EDIT: Okay, so in the Warthog flight stick (not throttle), the small connector in the base that connects to the removable flight stick proper.... the yellow wire on it finally broke the solder connection and was free floating. As the wires are relatively motionless, works fine as long as it stays in contact. The problem was, with nearly full front left stick deflection, the yellow wire would move just enough contact the others, and when I pressed any button, they'd ALL fire. I never noticed it in other flight sims because I never really move the stick that far and press a button. However in SB, when tracking a fast moving target... attached picture is the component in question. A quick solder and reassembly job. Certified Electronic Tech. Do not try this at home. I am not responsible if you damage yours trying the same fix. http://puu.sh/rZ2DA/34b6546db3.jpg
  2. Not using TARGET. (No real need to with all the buttons really.)
  3. ARMA 3 Wargame: Air Land Battle Wargame: Red Dragon Wargame: European Escalation (Surprised no one listed those before) DCS Falcon 4 BMS Various VR games as I have a Vive. :3
  4. Am I just missing it? Controls export attached. It seems to occur more and more the longer I play. I don't have this problem in any other games using my Warthog. CurrentControls.htm
  5. I do, and it's not mapped to anything for that explicit reason.
  6. Interesting issue that happens with M1A1, M1A2, and, so far, Leo2A5. Merrily doing my thing during the instant action scenarios. In TIS, zoomed in, white hot. Every now and then, I'll pull the trigger on my joystick to fire the main gun (button 1, as mapped in controls), and suddenly it's Normal Gunner's Sight, with whatever zoom it was on, and when I switch back to TIS, it's now Black Hot, and the gun didn't fire. If I do nothing at all, and I pull the trigger again, and it just reverses back to what it was, toggling uselessly. It's not until I hit another button to toggle zoom, TIS, or TIS White Hot (all mapped on joystick), that JoyButton1 will fire the gun like it's mapped to do. First I thought it was a case of double-mapped controls, but Fire, TIS, and Zoom aren't. Any ideas what's causing this? As I have my PC setup for DCS, I -do- have a gregarious amount of peripherals hooked up. I went into control panel and disabled those I'm not using (the PC tower is buried in the desk. No way I can get in there and disconnect physically) and the issue still occurs. EDIT: JOYSTICK HARDWARE FAILURE. NOT GAME RELATED. EXPLANATION IN LATER POST.
  7. Greetings! Long time no see. So I finally decided to install this thing again, and considering doing the upgrade to the latest version. I put in my disc, start the install process and get this... "Error 1335. The cabinet file Data1.cab required for this installation is corrupt and caanot be used. This could indicate a network error, an error reading from the CD-ROM, or a problem with this package." All I can do is abort. DxDiag is attached to this message. Quick and Dirty: Intel Quad Core2 Q9650 3.0GHz 4 gig RAM Win7 64-bit Samsung DVD Writer/lightscribe -------------------------- Did some reading, and since I'm planning on updating anyway, it seems that the quickest way to do this is to pay the $25, download and install the latest "upgrade" versions, and I should be able to skip the CD install completely? Oh, and update the Dongle of course. Am I understanding this correctly? DxDiag.txt
  8. I think another one of the motives we're not seeing top of the line stuff down there is the other great cause and spectre of conflict: money. If you're going to fight a "low intensity conflict" with overwhelming numerical superiority, why would you send your most expensive and well trained troops and equipment to go fight it? The short answer is you don't. You send what's "good enough" to get the job done and leave it at that. This also raises the really ugly question if the conflict is being used as a way to "downsize" the military. Certainly not one of the main reasons for Russia sending forces in there, but perhaps a convenience factor.
  9. Right now I got an X52, up from the X45 and even the old X32 I think it was. I like it for this game because you have the closest thing to a geunuine palm switch.
  10. If it ain't broke.... Then you're not trying hard enough.

    Sb Gold

    www.surpluscomputers.com Bought from these guys and had no problems at all. Although, unless you're the type of person who knows enough to build systems from parts, I'd suggest looking elsewhere. You're likely to not get any documentation or anything with some of this stuff, or even an Operating System in some cases.

    We allowed to post links? I know a website that has some really cheap stuff I get routinely. (nope. not Neweeg)
  13. I just got Pro PE after I fired up SB Gold for the first time in a LONG time... yeah.... do as he says.
  14. Shoot. Was wondering if it would be possible to make some Hammer's Slammers stuff just for fun.
