  1. My brother lives in NYC and asked if I could help him get a new PC. He wanted to spend up to $2,000 for a new PC and monitor, but could go a bit higher if he got a lot more for the extra money. I reset my Google to search US sites instead of UK ones and started looking at the pre-built and custom-build options available in the US. In the end I went for a PC from http://www.ibuypower.com as their custom configurator was a delight to use and you can easily see how much each option adds or subtracts from the total price. I won't list the full specification here, but I was blown away by what you can get for just under $2,000, including delivery. He doesn't need a PC this good, but he's got one now: i7, because hyper-threading hype. 16GB DDR4 (4 x 4GB for quad-channel)* NVidia GTX 1070 8GB 256GB M2, because who doesn't want a PC that boots faster than pressing the button. 512GB SSD, because it was a 'bargain'. 27" IPS 144Hz monitor * He won't ever upgrade it, so no point sticking 2 x 8GB in it. I'm surprised his current PC isn't a 286.

  3. I recently heard of someone getting their X55 replaced by Saitek with a X56, even though it was out of warranty. This made me wonder whether this was an unannounced company policy designed to mitigate the X55 quality issues and raise the profile of their support quality, so I did a test. The pin connecting the two throttles is only in the second throttle by 1 mm and under rare, extreme conditions it can pop out, causing the throttles to separate. I emailed Saitek, stating that the HOTAS was out of warranty, but could they recommend any options to limit the throttle wobble that caused the 2 throttle halves to separate. They asked me to unscrew the base and tighten up any screws holding the throttles in place and to let them know the details of the purchase. I sent them a copy of the original invoice and informed them that the throttles couldn't be tightened up, but I had used a cable tie to hold the 2 halves together, so the problem was effectively fixed, as I only needed one throttle. I got a prompt reply stating that as the throttle was faulty, it would be replaced, but as the X55 was no longer in production it would be replaced by a X56 and I was given a RMA and the return address. This was in the UK. I still don't know if it is a company policy, but it looks like Saitek are going beyond the call of duty to ensure they keep their X55 customers happy. UPDATE 17 Sept 2016 - A brand, spanking new X56 arrived yesterday. Now I don't know whether to keep it, because of the analogue mini-sticks, or sell it and see what else turns up before Star Citizen releases.
  4. Insane, might have to get one of these someday for my travels! I wonder how they made it so small...
  5. Hey guys, so I've recently gotten my HTC Vive and have everything setup. I'm having issues with Vive not detecting my base stations. Everything is setup to as it should be with Lighthouses mounted for standing room only (since my play area is a hazard lol). One lighthouse (base station) is setup on channel b the other on channel c as they should be. Both lights are green so they are good. The only thing I can think of now is the headset is the culprit. all firmware is up-to-date so I know this isn't the problem. I've restarted my computer and all that and nothing seems to work. if I reboot SteamVR the lighthouses are detected momentarily before going grey again. Anyone with a set know what my issue could be?
  6. With Virtual Reality headsets (Occulus Rift, HTC Vive etc) now on general release is anyone thinking of playing Star Citizen with one? What do you think would be the advantages/disadvantages over a normal monitor?
  7. I finally got the email that the Lapdog released, price is a little high ($120 - $250) but it does come with a optional mouse and keyboard. I looked at Razers answer to the lap keyboard mouse (Razer Turret) and didn't like it too much and was holding off for this as it seemed wider and more thought was put into "gaming" rather than a "slick profile" like its competitors. For anyone confused this is for couch/bed gaming that you put in your lap. Corsair Lapdog
  8. For anybody thinking about investing on this stick...make note. Out of the box it already has centering problems(which would get worse over time) and the internal build quality is the exact same as the x-55. Skip to 4:42 to see the centering issues in real time.
  9. As if some of you were on the fence about the Vive and Octopus Rift, here's StarVR from Starbreeze, a competitor to those others, being supported by Asus. Price? Dunno, don't care, I'm not buying VR. some specs? 210° Field of View Fresnel Lenses Dual 5.5" Quad HD Panels Position tracking
  10. Been monitor shopping lately and this review between the IPS and TN panels was pretty nice, thought it could come in handy for anyone searching the difference in the future, I keep seeing "get IPS" but could never see the reason but this is helping clear some things up.
  11. I know there are many among us who do NOT want or like windows 10 because of the invasive nature of the OS. Truth be told, Windows 10 is a great OS - better memory management for one thing. Sooooo, Load it up and kill anything you don't want or think you don't want. Below are some links to vids, articles, etc that can help put MS in its place and you with a better running rig there's loads of tips http://www.howtogeek.com/224798/how-to-uninstall-windows-10s-built-in-apps-and-how-to-reinstall-them/ http://www.pcworld.com/article/2875600/windows/windows-10-the-best-tips-tricks-and-tweaks.html http://windows.wonderhowto.com/how-to/everything-you-need-disable-windows-10-0163552/ http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/delete-windows-old-folder and anything you think others can benefit from
  12. I was wondering about how to go about having an animated gif as a wallpaper and stumbled across this information about Bionix Wallpaper Changer so if you want to keep your GPU busier than it needs to be, do this. there's even a GIF extractor. now, how do you make GIFs in order to make an animated wallpaper...... here's some good info from gizmodo (but you need photoshop - find a friend) No photoshop? look here.
  13. Welp, I found Google's answer to Sony's newly announced VR https://www.google.com/get/cardboard/
  14. When gaming I like to have 3 or more audio sources going. Usually the Game, VoIP, Music, Twitch, etc. I find it difficult to adjust these on the fly while gaming. I wish I could get a USB panel of knobs and map them to different sliders in windows mixer or their source applications main volume setting. Or even a tablet app to remotely control windows mixer and pick up a junk tablet for cheap to be a dedicated PC accessory. Anyone else have this issue? How do you resolve this issue? I did pick up Voice attack, is all this a moot point because it can be done with VA commands?
  15. Vive will cost you $799 :/ <<<--- See link to another Virtual Reality option... or link below...
  16. Hi guys n girls. I'm thinking of replacing my motherboard & gpu when the Nvidia GTX1080's (pascal) come out. So I'm going from itx to matx for an extra gpu. Saw this case. It looks very good and more portable than my current one. They have just started their kickstarter campaign today. http://www.kimeraindustries.com/cerberus/#cerberus-hero
  17. When scrolling the forums I encountered a new app called the ArgonHUD by Argon91, and thought it would be another great share. I've made a new topic for this one. I decided it after I searched all related topics here on SCB. But at the end I decided for a new topic as it is a newly released app. Kudos to: Argon91, Original thread: https://forums.robertsspaceindustries.com/discussion/314099/argonhud-accurate-star-citizen-hud-plugin-for-roccat-power-grid#latest
  18. The Microsoft Strategic Commander The control compared to my normally hyperspace tuned control on my orbweaver is startling. I use the thing for strafing and there is even some left/right turn that I'm gonna try to set for strafe up/down. Coupled with my JS and voice attack, I'm having much less frustration with flying. If the strafe up/down idea pans out, the hatswitch on the JS will be used for speed selection (V) and some other things. I now have 2 of these. One in the box, even. Not sure how much abuse it'll take, though.
  19. Now, this is something to consider.
  20. worldspawn00Aggressor 2 points 19 minutes ago I've been using it. At the extremes of twist it does not allow it to slide, other than that, it works well. I added buttons and a grip to mine with a 3d printed adapter I designed.
  21. Awhile back someone posted about this on Reddit, it looks great for a second stick. It's a 3DF stick and I've heard of a 6DF but still this is the type of second stick I've been looking for but does have a high price tag at around $250 US dollars, it has a few buttons on the ball on the top which is a big plus from others I've seen. Adds to the list of "need to get before SC release" list. lol UPDATE: Heard this brand is discontinued, fun thought. Buy Noviant Falcon Controller Reddit link (Pictures) Amazon reviews
  22. This was something of a mess last year with items gone in the first several seconds and people largely unable to link their accounts. I figure though that if people here can score a Javelin, they can probably manage it this year.

I've seen many rigs with touch screens in them and I know alot of us have been waiting for a software relating to StarCitizen, I don't know much about this company PMaxx or reviews on the software TITAN ACS (Advanced control system) yet, but I'm happy to see one is released this early on and for $5.45 US.

  24. This subject is something I've been looking at for many years and a friend happened to talk about one she happened to test from RICE university, this is what it has turned into so far and I'm beyond ecstatic to see the final product. People have talked of feeling rain drops on their hands to a butterfly's wings flap. This can only further our VR immersion if not complete the bundle. Gloveone info
