  1. Proxima Centauri is part of the triple star Alpha Centauri system, so this planet sounds like Trisolaris as described in this book: https://www.amazon.com/Three-Body-Problem-Cixin-Liu/dp/0765382032/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1472146348&sr=1-1&keywords=three+body+problem Awesome sci-fi, if you're into that sort of thing...
  2. Nothing wrong with that. Their 'Fish +Chip Lasagne' sounds awesome!
  3. Nasty. I guess there's not too many hills to run to in Louisiana....
  4. Un poco más de detalle por favor, preferentemente en Inglés.
  5. What graphics mode are you playing in? D3D or Glide? If it's Glide, then I'd suggest a different wrapper...or switch to Glide if you're running D3D.
  6. Enjoy the game!
  7. I only have time for a quick answer right now, but do you have the game and/or Reloaded in your 'Program Files' folder? This sounds like a Windoes UAC problem.
  8. Really? Not saying that things couldn't be better, but is there a less volatile timeframe you'd rather live your life through? Was thinking about this, and while I'd probably have been better off being born about 10 years earlier from an economic point of view, I'd say earlier generations had it a lot worse.
  9. Didn't realise that five people could fit into one of those...
  10. "1945: At 5.30 am, the first atomic bomb is exploded at a test site in Los Alamos, USA." Oh, thanks. You could have put this in a spoiler tab! I'm in the middle of reading this book: https://www.amazon.com/Making-Atomic-Bomb-Nuclear-Age-ebook/dp/B00E2RG5GA/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1468664527&sr=1-1&keywords=the+history+of+the+atomic+bomb#nav-subnav ...and it's neck and neck betewwn the allies and the axis about who'd get there first, but I needn't bother reading the rest now.
  11. I'd say your time is better spent on other things... In my experience, the Vive is great for scenarios where you are stationary in the virtual world. But when simulating movement as in flight or racing sims, I start to get some motion sickness symptoms due to the lack of real movement. Maybe that will wear off if I play enough, but even 15 minutes in 'Euro Truck Sim 2' leaves an unpleasant feeling that can last for hours. Strange, as I don't get sick with real motion...and I've been on some horrendous sea crossings. I really can't be the only person experiencing this...
  12. Check page 31 of the "TAW_20_addendum.pdf" document that can be found in the '!ADP/documentation' folder.
  13. Great movie, as was 'Rush' which contains far more live action than might be expected from the CGI world of 2013. That looks like it was filmed at the real Spa circuit, and I think I can see from where the 'Bus Stop' chicane got its name. I love watching F1 documentaries from the sixties and seventies, as it's great to see the pit area filled with people drinking and smoking seemingly at all times. This thread inspired me to try a few laps driving a Lotus 49 in 'Project CARS' with a Vive VR headset. The experience is less immersive than a touring car, such as the BMW M3 since unless you sit on the floor, it feels like this:
  14. Good stuff! I think Formula 1 should be the pinnacle of automotive engineering though, and that means software control of the engine management systems etc. What I don't like are the abritrary limitations that stifle innovation, like a maximum RPM and only being allowed to use a few engines per season..
  15. An epic demonstration of cross-referencing!
