  1. [DONE] forum upgrade this Sunday

    Come on, the update might finally fix your profile photo

    Mike, have you ever checked if EF2000 writes debug messages to a second monitor? According to this thread, a lot of games from the era did that: https://forums.cncnet.org/topic/5130-dos-monochrome-display-memory-watcher-for-dosbox/
  3. Stealth: A retro-style F117A simulator

    Yeah, seven bucks my ###! Also, a correction: They released the game on Steam three years ago. At least some reviews are dated to November 2014. I was more interested in the technical details; i.e. did they bundle it with a DOS emulator? The reviews on their Falcon 4.0 re-release are in part very negative; stating that it doesn’t even install properly.

    I just noticed billionsoft (the new brand owner from Hongkong) released F-117A on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/328920/F117A_Nighthawk_Stealth_Fighter_20/ Anybody tried it?

    @Toumal: Thanks! When will we get a playable demo of Stealth? @Mike: The quality of OpenStreetMap here in Europe is quite good. At leasts that’s what my neighbor says – he likes to improve the data sets in his spare time. There is one advantage to it that just can’t be dismissed: Once you integrate it, crowd intelligence will improve the roads over time. No other work for us than upgrading the dataset and DING, instant realism

    Have you tried just using double precision? 10 km from the origin, singles give you precision of 1 cm (closest neighbor of 10'000.0 is 10'000.0009765625) doubles have that precision even at magnitudes of Sun-Neptune distance (closest neighbor of 5'000'000'000'000.0 is 5'000'000'000'000.0009765625, which is 33 Astronomical Units) The reason I never used it for TFXplorer was cache locality and SIMD throughput, but if you’re on Unity, that’s hardly a thing to care about

    I’m doing the best I can Xplane’s minutes of loading time can be avoided. However, I guess everyone on the project is short on time, and in a rush it’s better to get something going slow instead of trying to make it perfectly fast but not finishing it at all. My approach on graphics is: If you are on a real plane and take a HD photo and compress it to PNG, that’s a 5 MB file. 5 MB of entropy, that’s all your eye needs for photorealism. I don’t think TFXplorer will ever be forced to load GB of data just to generate 5 MB of entropy on the screen. But now there’s the problem I mentioned above: it’ll probably take another decade to finish it …

    He was one sick guy.

    Nonetheless, that’s rapid progress and it looks fantastic!
  10. I loved Friday on My Mind. Wasn’t he one side of Flash & the Pan as well? Hey St. Peter and And the Band Played On were great. (I’m confused over George, Malcolm, and Angus Young, so I hope I’m not talking trash here.)
  11. BTW: COMBATSIM.COM is 10 Years Old

    Wow, yeah. I just read about Combatsim’s history for the first time and it really is exciting. I’m looking forward to the next birthday as well!

    Mine doesn’t even have a second screen

    NT’s Raw Input API (in hid.dll). From what I can see here, this is still under construction in Wine … I’d be very glad if you could find me information on the current state and what Wine supports and where its current problems lie. (https://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?t=16184#p78989) … then came TFXplorer, which used RawInput for mouse, keyboard, and joystick together …
  14. Hello

    Hi LANCIA! I’m always happy to meet other flight sim fanatics
  15. Time to tune in, turn on, and drop out...

    Love them all!
