    Hey All, This is just so sad... RIP Steve. I will miss his reporting - he was good. Head and neck cancer... What the hey? I have never heard of it. I guess cancer can be cancer of anything anymore. -Ed-

    Craig, I actually like Rebirth. But the only thing is you need it updated to the last update out. 3.53 is the newest one. Plus you need a lot of the mods the guys are making. Some work well, while others are so so, and some won't work with other mods. But those usually are older mods that have been updated, or won't work with 3.53 I can't even begin to remember how many mods I have subscribed to...... possibly 50. While the graphics are really good, game play takes a lot of getting used too. It not like playing XReunion or X3 Terran Conflict. As for TC on Steam, I don't like it at all. It has only one update and that's not all that great. I need the stand alone copy to use Cycrow's "cheats" to have the Vidarsaurus and the fleet of ships you can have right from the start. ;)

    almost 1 year ago you all bought me a new win 8 surface rt 64 to replace my night time server monitor (night light) lol. I did add a 64 GB extra drive in it so I guess it is now a 128, lol. Well it is still running great I have not jail broke it so it still starts in under 20 seconds. I could not be more happy. I have an old laptop Compaq cq-60 and even thou I replaced the hard drive in Dec it still takes 5 minutes to start. I will give MS an attaboy on the surface rt 64 models even thou they are discontinued.

    Just saw this today as I've been away. What a sad and tragic loss. He was one of the "good guys" that had been around for a long time. He'll be missed by many. My condolences to you Hiede, his family and friends. R.I.P. Al/Talon.

    I lost my X3TC saves due to a hard drive crash last year or so. Can't find my original disc yet but.. I got it thru Steam on the cheap. I'm messing around with it but it's not as good as have the original. At least with that you could use Cycrow's cheats. ;) You can't with Steam. :censored: I got into XRebirth thru Steam, but you need a bunch of Mods with all the updates to have a better running sim. It's different alright, and not at all like TC. One question for ya Craig. Where in hell has everybody gone? It's a ghost town on here these days.

    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

T-38 Blog: I/O Cards

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

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.
