  1. PC Gamer Article on Star Citizen

    Will there be fish and chips? I like fish and chips. If there are no fish and chip shops I will open an interplanetary chain of them. There will be signposts and billboards everywhere. "Change Your Vector to Victor's Chippy. You'll find one at every space port and habitable outpost. We serve only the finest fish-like creatures available - if not actual fish." Remember: Victor's Chippy for quality fare and enough on your plate at reasonable prices! Salt & Victor Vector's Special Reserve Vinegar extra.

    @Nord Thanks for that. I already have an account with Imggur now, but I'll make a note of Photoland.io in case things don't work out.
  3. Photobucket

    Ok, after a bit more shuffling around on Imgur I found this which seems to clear up any misunderstanding I think. "Are you unable to see your images on a forum? We allow hotlinking on forums, but hotlinked images cannot be used as content for a website, including blog posts, avatars, site elements, and advertising. You can read our terms of service for more info. If you believe your site has been mistakenly blocked, please contact us for assistance." The statement snippet in my previous post regarding Imgur's T.O.S. may be a bit ambiguous/confusing to some, myself included, but the above appears to clear up any doubt on the issue. Imgur, does indeed allow direct or hotlinking to forums etc. Good enough for me. Imgur account soon to be set up.
  4. Photobucket

    I have now retrieved all my images from Photobucket and deleted my account. Took forever mainly because of their damned irritating captcha routine every time you need to download something. Anyway good riddance to them. I was looking at Imgur and reviews were good with this one: https://www.thebalance.com/top-free-image-hosting-websites-1357014 stating that direct linking is allowed. This is a snippet from their review: "Direct linking is allowed and you're also given links for embedding the image in HTML or adding it to message boards and forums." Great, but then in Imgur's T.O.S. I noticed this paragraph which is rather worrying: "Stuff not to do Also, don't use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or anything else that turns us into your content delivery network. If you do – and we will be the judge – or if you do anything illegal, in addition to any other legal rights we may have, we will ban you along with the site you're hotlinking from, delete all your images, report you to the authorities if necessary, and prevent you from viewing any images hosted on Imgur.com. We mean it." Now I may be reading all this wrong - so many terms - direct linking, hot linking, 3rd party hosting, - all seem to mean basically the same thing as far as my limited knowledge goes, so which is it? Are we allowed to use imgur to display images on other websites or not. Seems very confusing with conflicting reports depending on where you look.

    Well it seems the consensus favours Imgur so far. Anyway I've almost finished getting all my stuff back from PhotoF*cket, so I'll be giving Imgur a try too. @Xlile Probably the boss of PhotoF*cket wanting a new few dozen Ferrari's or some such to grace the driveway of his new Mansion in the Bahamas.
  6. Photobucket

    It appears recently that Photof*cket now wants $400 a year to allow us to post images on forums or anywhere else for that matter. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/06/30/photobucket_charging_400yr_3rdparty_pgs/ I think they know what they can do with that idea. That said any photo's I've previously posted may no longer work either by Photof*cket's interference or ultimately by me removing all photo's from their site and finding an alternative host. If anyone else is using Photobucket, beware. In the meantime, any suggestions for a good, simple easy to use FREE photo hosting site that allows posting your photo's on forums etc, gratefully received.

    @Squirrel You're welcome. Hope it helps.
  8. Good Flight Stick Setup Guide?

    If you are using a "push to talk" button on your keyboard, you can instruct voice attack to stop listening automatically whilst the key is pressed and then resume listening once the key is released. Go into Voice attack Options (the spanner icon) and click the "Hotkeys" tab. Select the box on the right hand side next to "Recognition Global Hotkey." In the Global Hotkey window, enter your chosen push to talk key and choose the "Voice attack stops listening while key is pressed" radio button. That's it. Now VA will stop listening for commands while the PTT key is pressed and resume listening once it it released. I haven't tried yet, but depending on your controller software it should be possible to map your chosen PTT key to a joystick button. Hope I understood your intentions correctly.

  10. Chris Roberts Rebranding

    That's because it was made in High Fidelity. I wonder if he'll be changing the name to "Fidelity Citizen"
  11. SC forum closes on April 14.

    Yes, I've got myself a couple of reasonably big and effective knives now, er, I mean swords, and that Griffin armour you mentioned. Even Horsey McHorseFace has got a new fancy saddle, saddle bags and some tin bling on his nose. As for the "saucy prostitutes", I actually haven't tried that particular side quest. Still, I suppose it has a couple of advantages over the real thing, i.e. it's cheaper and a lot safer, haha. Move along now, nothing to see here......... And now back to Spectrum: Yes indeed Amedeus hit the nail on the head with a very large hammer. You can't force people to use something they don't want simply by denying access to what they're already used to. They'll just move elsewhere as we have done. CIG should realize that they're doing themselves and the game more harm than good by this attempted heavy handed forced move to a clunky, ugly and messy system.
  12. SC forum closes on April 14.

    Ooh! Has this turned into the official Spectrum bashing thread? @RogueRaptor Overlays! Oh man, one of my pet hates too. That's true Grizz. I think CIG have invented a new game called "Ostriches." The winner is the first one to guess how short a time it takes for the CR Ostrich to bury its head in the sand on that desert planet (the one with that sand worm) and hope all the spectrum negativity will go away or pretend that it didn't actually happen in the first place. Oh yeah and as for games, I'm now playing Witcher 3 to occupy myself at least until v3.0 drops.
  13. Yes you're quite right. I forgot to mention that with SC. Sorry. I also have the roll axis disabled too. I found that can give some odd results too. I only did a quick test with the system though.
  14. @Skywing You're welcome. Glad you got your tracker working with Open Track. It might take a little bit of work to get super smooth but it can be done. I think the helmet bug affects just about everyone at the moment. That's an issue for CIG to fix I think. I watched the Tobii video in Gerald Evans' post above and there is no helmet bug there. However, tobii works differently to track IR but I'm not familiar with that device so I can't comment further. It will be good to see how Tobii is implemented in Star Citizen though. Good luck, Fly safe.
  15. @Skywing As far as Freetrack is concerned you are right. It does not work in Star Citizen. However, if you use Open Track with your tracking device, all you need to do is start Open track, then launch Star Citizen and fly. It will work without having to set up anything in the Star Citizen controls at all. The link to download Open Track is in my other post above. Hope that helps.
