Major (4/10)



  1. Well the "coordinates" in TAW is really simple. When it says 109 for 190 it means that you have to turn and fly a heading of 109 degrees and the distance to the aircraft's position at that time is 190 nautical miles, which is REALLY far away actually.
  2. I use the same joystick, it does make flying TAW a little hard, but I have from FSX and flying the MD-11 learned to be smooth with small movements of the stick You don't want the MD-11 to bounce on landing and do a roll over
  3. Down for the third time... First was the GPU, Second was the motherboard... Third was a harddrive. While the first two said bye bye after 2 years, the harddrive went to 4.5 years.
  4. Well because there is no AIM-120R in real life, or rather, nothing past a prototype according to a google search. But have a look at the "Meteor" missile... Strong resemblance right?
  5. The difference is the range, as for whom can hunt better... Well that depends on your energy. If you are going slow, the 120C might be at the edge of its circle (Bigger circle you have, the higher the chances are of a hit, according to the TAW manual) so it depends on the conditions. Naturally you can reach out longer with the R than with the C, and if you are near stall speed, you may find that the R can give you the best results in the 20nm range.
  6. You better clear your driveway tomorrow HomeFries... To solve your power problems we are shipping you a nuclear reactor in boxes... Don't want it squashing any cars when they airdrop the parts.
  7. Of course it slows down when you surf, but that is because it doesn't need to run at full power, it won't go any faster if it does, all that happens is that more transistors are powered on when there is ZERo activity. But the moment you run something where it matters it will go up in speed, the only reason for shutting it off is if you are on LN2 and these underclocks causes instabillity, but in this case it won't matter. In short, it allows you save on your power bill when the computer is just idling and you aren't running a fancy sim or something, nothing lost, just gained, also reduces heat output.
  8. These two: 2. Enhanced Speedstep Tech = Disabled.. 3. CPU C1E = Disabled. You need them if you are to use the turbo feature of the CPU as well. It shouldn't affect performance or overclocking at all, only ones that needs to disable those are the ones running on Liquid Nitrogen. The C3 and the C6 are sleep features, if you put your computer into hibernation or stuff like that, but on desktops it is bugged all to hell and back so it is best not to use it.
  9. Curious as to why you disable the power saving features for idle? It shouldn't affect the performance, as for the virtualization, it won't matter if it is on or off unless you are using that extension (Server stuff essentially.)
  10. Dunno, I got a backup system, but not configured I can get it back up and running with the motherboard swap if I sacrifice the DVD drive
  11. Yep, it is annoying as hell... We shall see when I get everything up and going again. Bah, they don't make stuff the way they used to anymore the amounts of RMAs I do yearly is just going up.
  12. And now the next one to go is the motherboard, damn this is starting to get cozy. The board is starting to lose BIOS functions and gives me POST codes that doesn't exist according to the manual... The good news is I got a spare board, the bad news is that the spare lacks sufficient SATA ports.
  13. I am impressed that you can say this out openly like that, mad proper respect to you Redfalcon! My alcohol problem is reversed though when I feel like having a beer I usually cannot because I have to drive somewhere, work related or family related. As a result, I buy a 6 pack of beer for christmas, but lasts almost the entire year...
  14. And the hardware blues continiues... My replacement due to Nvidia chip shortage and possibly a recall of the entire 600 series lineup has given me an unconfirmed date of 30th of June... Backorders can suck... Too bad my 5970 couldn't have clinged on for a month or two longer so I wouldn't end up in the crisis
  15. Well, I could slap it on my FTP, but I'll have to fix some access scheme for it though.
