I remember last year when a game store in my area was having a 50% sale on used sticks... maybe I'm just cheap for not having been able to spend $70 on a Hori RAP when even tween shits and broke millennials buy iPhones. In my defense, I already have a pad.

Meanwhile, the cheapest analog flight stick out there is something like $16. I mean, I guess I should get around to playing TIE Fighter...


Yeah, after MadCatz died and the FGC revival faded away, the wellspring of cheap sticks dried up, too. Should've got one while they were everywhere and dirt cheap.

It's the best I've ever tried but for some reason every time the stream speed falls to miserable ko/s near the end, and it can take ages when it's a big one.
Also no choice for mkv it seems?...(though I have one that offers an option for mkv but takes the day to wrap a 1GB file)

Of course with all of them if you just want a shitty downscaled/downsampled copy there's no problem, you'll have it in minutes. :/

Oh poor baby! Forced to play an absolute masterpiece of not only space sim design, but videogame narrative twist.

If the version you have gives you the option, go for the midi soundtrack over the John Williams symphonic version. One of the best things about Tie Fighter is how it takes the Imperial March and with just a couple tweaks makes it sound heroic. Man, just thinking about all the great moments in the game, from joining the secret order, to flying alongside Darth Vader, man I want to dig out Tie Fighter and start playing!

The only game that surpasses it is Freespace 2. You have played Freespace 2, right?

The newer mayflash ones are good, cheap and just as easy to mod as madcatz.

I'm at the point where I think I will just be gutting my sticks and putting new PCB's (and obviously parts as needed:) in them depending on what I need.

Now that we're adults I think for the foreseeable future there will be a market for PCB's that are PC/current gen compatible. I don't see that changing anytime soon, and the PCB's are usually half the price of a new stick.

You're not cheap :)

Any Star Wars fan worth his salt recognizes the greatness that is TIE Fighter, myself included. I just never got around to buying an analog flight stick is all (although it's since become a more attractive option, given that I could also use it to play Space Harrier). Not only that, but my Windows 98 machine is currently in storage without a monitor and no one knew about PCem when I attempted to play Lucasarts' flight sims in DOSBox six years ago, using a keyboard and mouse. (That went about as well as you'd expect. On that note, X-wing runs like a dream in PCem emulating a 486DX2-50. Silky smooth.)

Just took a quick look... I've heard many stories about lower-end Hori and Qanba sticks experiencing input failure after a few months of regular use, so it's surprising to see fairly positive reviews across the board for the Mayflash F300.

I'm not into Star Wars much but this makes my boner scream and rage. Shmuppin as fuck, down to the BGM.

Everyone's probably seen it already but it was news to me a few months back so just passing it along.

i'd really like to play freespace 2, but i've never played any space/flight sim games before and as someone who has never really got into pc games seeing something like this is pretty terrifying:

When you specifically go for the slightly more expensive eBay seller because they specify that their shipping doesn't include tracking, place your order, and the next day you get a tracking number >_>

ah yeah that makes sense. ^^

personally I've become paranoid and always opt for tracking unless it's a very cheap thing.

(yeah cost me dearly two or three times, but a lost package can amount to a much greater loss)

All the packages I've ever lost had tracking, and it didn't save me anything.

Wait, I don't get what difference it would make if your package has a tracking number when going through Customs. Explain it to me slowly with small words, please.

Why is it every time people on the steam forums start discussing legit bugs, that guy has to show up.

Quote:
You only have [bug] because your hardware is inferior! My setup is quite beastly and I never encounter [bug].


Then someone else talks about [bug] on their i9 with a 1080ti system.

Quote:
Just having good hardware doesn't mean you can run everything, you have to know how to use it!


And so on and so on. Jesus Christ I hate that guy.

This is also why I still can't embrace PC gaming.

Installed RetroArch on my SNES mini to play some GBA stuff on the big screen. Games are picked up on the game list, but kick back to the menu when I start them. RetrArch starts, but doesn't seem to find anything outside of the folder it's installed in. Been messing around with it for too long and my head is about ready to explode, yet every guide I've seen makes it look the simplest thing ever .

I was trying to find some videos of Unigine benchmarks to compare different GPUs. As it turns out, people keep using custom settings.

GODDAMN MORONS, IF THE SETTINGS ARE CUSTOM, THE RESULT WILL BE DIFFERENT AND THE NUMBERS WILL MEAN NOTHING. USE THE GODDAMN PRESETS!!! :x

Nope, tried that. They have no numbers for the cards I wanted to compare - GTX 650ti and GTX 680.

This comparison is probably reliable, though. Could be a neat low-cost upgrade for me.

Not quite "annoyed", more like "bewildered"

But people are posting "Our couple's waking-up routine" videos now? This is messed up. Wtf is this?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t71eg6Tjauw and the likes

I already put into words my complete confusion in a comment under such a video, so I will just copy that (it's in french though, so I guess only Xyga and a few others will get it). But the gist of it is : "this is fucking weird... and why are you guys watching this?"
