Went On A Binge

Post by Nefaro on Fri Oct 31, 2014 12:14 pm

I just went nuts on a buying spree for new controllers.   pig

Got all the CH setup.  Fighterstick, Pedals, and back-ordered the throttle.

It's overkill for ROF, but I had been planning on upgrading to this stuff for a long time.  Since I also occasionally do some DCS, Falcon4, and other more modern flights sims I may as well go with as many buttons (and most notably Hat Switches) as could be needed. Now I'll just have to make some extra room on my USB ports. scratch

Sounds cool! Post some setup pics when you get it all together.

Are you kidding?  My computer desk is a nightmare of clutter!

I may post a pic after I unbox them.  Started taking some pics of my tabletop boardgaming and wargaming lately, along with some of my beginner minis painting, so I keep a big table open for such layouts.  Very Happy


I just hope the joystick and pedals are as quality and last as long as people say.  My current HOTAS is still in decent shape but I want MOAR Buttons and better gimbals (or wotnot).

Oh your a table gamer to? Awesome! I have collected a number of board games and am into wargaming as well! Not a lot of people around to play games with though so it's a hobby I've been forced to put on the back burner.

Yep!

Got back into it in the last couple years. Have far more tabletop games than people to play them with. Fortunately there have been a huge amount of solitaire-capable cooperative ones coming out recently, so if I feel like pushing cardboard or minis I can still get a game going at any time. Or just paint. They're like relaxation meditation.

I know there are quite a few gamers in my area, but I've not tried to track any down yet. Gotta couple old buddies who used to game on occasion, years ago, so I'm trying to persuade them to join me again. More difficult than I expected.

If nothing else, we can always find opponents on the net and just use Vassal. But that kinda lessens the physical interaction of tabletop games. Still.. it's better than squat. Been considering trying it out once I've picked out a game to break my Vassal cherry with.

Yeah. I paint often as well. Even posted a video on my channel recently.




Would love to give vassel a try sometime maybe we can get Zebra and a few others from the forum to try it out.
