    Well, I watched the race until 0400...flag to flag....:dizzy: Great to see Daniel really sticking it to SeBRATien......:encouragement: During the post race, the commentators stated that SeBRATien is great with huge amounts of downforce...... Looks like Vettel's going to have to learn mechanical grip to keep up with Daniel.... Great 1-2 with my two favorite drivers....:mixed-smiley-010:

    Since the year 2000 Intel has been the far superior processor for gaming and that substantiated by multiple test sites. However I have seen AMD processors run FSX and P3D very well. It is also a bit less expensive to run the AMD platform, however Intel has become extremely competitive. Ted

    So, I thought I would post some of the stuff I have been doing. I hope you like them. They were taken with several Nikons but, could have been taken with Canons or Sonys.

    Hey All, I've always seen Patton as a WWII Custer (whose luck ran out as you well know). Patton's luck would have run out had he lead an army against Russia and could have at Normandy had he been counter attacked. I see NO resemblance to T J Jackson or Bedford Forrest at best maybe some resemblance to J E B Stuart. I don't know much about Mark Clark. One thing I do know - my grand mother on my mom's side maiden name was Kuhl as was the last name of the soldier he slapped. Always wondered but never looked into it. Any of you ever settle it by playing BII from SSG? I play TAO in BIN from them time to time and I hear the TAO version in BII is better than in BIN. I think I'll buy BII. -Ed-

    Hey John~ Thanks for helping me out with the "friendship request" issue. I did not get any notification at all.
    Gigabyte was able to help me with the Blog thing. So we are all set!
    Great teamwork there!
  2. Cool pic of you and the tweet!! I'm very envious. Maybe if I had better eyesight I wouldn't have failed my flight physical and toiled as a crew chief for so many years. Renting planes gets expensive!!

    You're kinda reserved, but I'd sure love to hear some good flying stories of your sometimes. What years were you active and what ypes did you fly?

Inside Beta Testing

by jmig on January 2nd, 2012 at 18:23
Over the last ten years or so, we have all seen MSFS models go from $5.00 each to $50.00 and more. With the increase in pricing, have come increased systems integration and model complexity. Interior and exterior visual acuity rivals today real aircraft. As the realism of flight sim models have increased, so too have the expectations of the consumer.

Developers are caught between the customers’ desire for ever better and more exact models, and the increased costs in man hours to program

End Devices for I/O Cards

Real world pilots control aircraft functions with switches, potentiometers, encoders, etc. We virtual pilots can also control our virtual aircraft with switches, potentiometers, encoders and more…through the I/O card.

Remember the I/O card is nothing more than a middle man between us and the flight simulator. By twisting a knob, or moving a control we send information through the I/O card to our virtual

Using I/O Cards

In an earlier entry I mentioned Input/Output (I/O) cards. Today we will look more closely at them and what they can do to enhance your flight sim experience. We will also look at some different I/O cards and later start building a simple switch panel which will control some of the MSFS basic functions.

Perhaps the most common I/O card available is the one in that old used joystick you have sitting up in the

The Cockpit


I have had several requests for pictures of the cockpit. So I am posting here a few pictures of what the cockpit looks like. Please remember this is the acumination of six or seven years of research and work.

As we continue this blog, I will show you how I made many of the components and panels you see here.
This blog will go through the basic building blocks which together make up the simulator. Also, what

First-Sim & I/O Cards

Here are pictures of my first sim “cockpit”. It consisted of two Go-Flight Modules and three parts I made myself.

I also used two monitors, One for the outside view and another for the instruments. Holding everything was a simple plywood frame I constructed to support the monitors and components.
