  1. Apparently GIMP can handle them as well.
  2. I'm not sure about the Warthog, but the software for my Saitek X52 allowed me to program the throttle as "bands", each of which could simulate a keyboard button press. So, for example: I set the throttle to have 5 "bands". Going from closed throttle to open, they simulated the button presses for reverse, stop and then three forward button presses. Only problem with that setup was that if I moved the throttle from stop to fast speed (2x forward button presses) and then back down to what you think would be slow, I ended up at top speed because that was actually another forward button press. So you'd have to move all the way back down to stop and then up to slow. If that makes sense. It worked. But in the end I decided it was actually easier for me to just use the keyboard. I think there is a thread around here somewhere that has my old X52 profile in it.
  3. Nice! My wife and I were doing some reorganizing recently and we came across a bin full of my old game boxes. She asked if I wanted to keep them, seeing as most of them won't even install on a modern PC. I reluctantly agreed to get rid of a lot of them. I did keep a few ... like my original SB. I'll have to look and see what else I still have.
  4. Glad to hear you're okay, RogueSnake. The storm was still pretty strong when it passed over the east coast of Virginia. I had to race outside and take the flag down before it got blown right off the pole.
  5. Nice! Just so you know: there is another thread for videos not related to SB, but which are still topical:
  6. I don't understand how I can have a badge for making 500 posts and still be a noob. I am finding this all quite amusing, though. EDIT: Oooooh, I just got promoted to "Rookie"! 🤓 All noobs must now call me "Your Excellency"!
  7. Same happened to me. I just kept deleting everything on the first page until it contained only what I wanted to keep and then went to page 2, etc. Kind of tedious, but at least I only started with three pages.
  8. I deleted as much as I could while also trying to preserve the context of a few posts. Cheers!
  9. There's an eyelash in my eye and it's really pissing me off.
  10. Yeah, that was my first thought. I think in SB, this dude would've been dead within the first few seconds. Don't get me wrong, this looks like fun for a more casual player. And I enjoy Cold Waters for the same reason.
  11. I met Billy Corgan once. At a Camelot Music CD store in the mall. Must've been in the mid '90s. Very nice guy.
  12. I like making missions for myself.
  13. My condolences to his family. Rest in peace, Derek. We'll miss you.
  14. My father [maybe a Captain at the time ... he retired (grudgingly) as Lt. Col.] was stationed in Bad Kreuznach around 1979. I was very young and barely remember it. But all of my memories are fond ones. Someday I'll go back. If I do, I'm definitely buying Nils a Bier. 🍻
  15. But think of the possibilities! "SB Universe"! We could have tank battles on Proxima Centauri b.
