  1. I used the Logitech G13 for SB, It also has a built-In mini joy stick If needed. It works great for me. The problem Is I don´t see them available any more, at least on Amazon EU. You do have the Razer Tartarus V2 (you gota love the names the put on this stuff) If you want something similar. You do have cheaper options, like the Redragon K585 DITI mechanical keyboard and a few others on Amazon. Any programable add-on keyboard will work, and personally I find these keyboards great for the sole reason that you can program them, and have different profiles on them If they have that option. Works great for SB, FPS games and even for software like video editing, streaming apps or graphical editors as "short-cut" keys. Add to that a programable mouse and you got you´re self some QoL on PC. For apps there´s JoyToKey, or x360ce which I used before... https://www.x360ce.com/ Or, Touch Portal which Is a remote macro control that pretty easy to use. I use It on my smartphone for MSFS 2020 and DCS. It´s basically a cheaper, even free version of elgato Stream Deck without the casing. https://www.touch-portal.com/ Hopefully you will find what you need.

    That´s a great "monster" game by Mark H. I was about to get the older version a month ago but I already have to many games I have to get to first. I have Flashpoint Golan and Gulf Strike by Mark H, and I also have the newer Next War series Korea and Vietnam, roughly Inspired by Mark and Jim´s Next War (SPI). I hope you enjoy Marks Pacific War.

  7. Another crawler sim worth checking out... Pure Rock Crawling: https://store.steampowered.com/app/824720/Pure_Rock_Crawling/ Red
  8. Didn´t notice that, how come It showed up In bold text as If It was a new unread post? Oh well send me to the galleys!
  9. Other sims and Interesting stuff some might enjoy. I am also Into car/racing sims so I´ll start first. Feel free to add you´re own so we have them under one roof (thread). Jumped from Overpass to BeamNG for my off-road/crawl pleasures. I admit that sim rock crawling Is very relaxing and satisfying for me and thought I would share It with you all. You don´t really need a wheel set-up for this type of driving, a Xbox type controller will do you good. I use the 8BitDo Pro 2 Wired Controller for Xbox. It´s well built and Is like the PS2 controller which I find very comfortable whilst I do have a proper wheel set-up on my other PC for other racing sims. Red
  10. The dev Is from Spain, and I haven´t seen much news and/or feedback as of late. He Is a solo dev so things can go slow. There has been open windows to opt In for EA In the past, and those who did get a chance to support the dev have current builds and Info, but that´s about all I know for this sim.
  11. Oh well, a waste then. Sorry...
  12. For those who have a Nvidia graphics card, you might want to try this Game Filter option on SB... I haven´t tried It yet, will be re-Installing SB soon. Red

    Lone Sherman: A Solitaire Wargame by Mike Lambo... Available on Amazon. Red
  14. Aside from the alien princesses, which I would not discard due to the fact that It´s online play and some woman (as men) are a bit "alien" haha, but the fact Is that all this can already be done In The Verse (Star Citizen). No creatures on planets at present but everything else Is there. SC has plenty of online gameplay... 341,306 players daily: Star Citizen Server Population I wont go Into Chris Roberts business model with Star Citizen, but he sure as hell makes/made a lot of money with It, I would also add that technically SC Is on a league of It´s own. One really has to try It to see what he has achieved In his "The Verse". Yes the project Is been out since 2013, that´s when I backed It and since then It has had some ups and downs, but has always been Innovating and keeps on doing so. Yes he has made a lot of money, but has also Innovated In almost all fronts, Including money making!

    Glad you like It. Not to many mention Segas Mega Drive now day´s, I had the Mega Drive II. I can´t remember the NBA game I was hooked on (NBA Live 95 maybe), but It was one of the first games I won a NBA championship. I was playing as the Chicago Bulls when the bulls were really kicking a**. Those were the days! BTW, they still sell the Mega Drive II mini on Amazon, I was shocked to see that! I also like Pro Strategy Football. But this Is more of a management game. It´s also more relaxed... Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1935910/Pro_Strategy_Football_2023/ Red

    Hard to master, but fun to play. Legend Bowl, don´t let the pixel art fool you, It´s a tough game/sim. On sale (50% off - 12US$) ends tomorrow... Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1106340/Legend_Bowl/ There´s a NFL mod on there Discord. Controller recommended.
  17. As for Microproses comeback the weirdest ever, I am afraid we live In a weird world now Apoc. Everything seems to have done a 360 on us down to earth folks.
  18. Yes Bluedrake pulled back (going solo)... https://store.steampowered.com/app/736590/Operation_Harsh_Doorstop/ As for Outerra... Yeah I guess I did give my opinion saying I could not give my opinion on something that shows no progress for now (grins). Can they pull something off with this game engine? Sure, plenty of things. The question Is "how many things", and "will It render". While rendering the whole globe Is a task on It´s self, and not a easy one to pull off (my hats off to the devs), the question Is will It really work? Because aside from rendering, you then have the simulation(s) calculation(s) to be done aswell which can be a hell of a stress on even today´s hyper PC´s. As Cap. Colossus stated, yes portions of maps (DCS) have been done before (IL-2) with "some" degree of achievement on behalf of the game engine, and the reason why maps are made (loaded) In chunks to relief computing and rendering PC stress, thus I can´t yet see how Outerra will manage a whole earth planet with some kind of fidelity In warfare. Unless It´s a very dumb down simulation version. So far that I know, Microsoft with It´s MSFS 2020 has been the only publisher, along with there dev team (Asobo Studio) to successfully model the whole planet with minimal stress (to some degree). With X-Plane 12 (Laminar Research) coming In second place, but both of these simulations only calculate flight models aside from the terrain, so how will Outerra overcome / manage other simulation calculations Is a mystery to me, and that´s without blowing up your PC In the process!
