  1. Got it working, its one axis split, so you have to play with the "+" and "-" to get the setup right for on the gas, off the gas etc. EDIT: First Had to run the calibration wizard in the device settings of Windows.
  2. I can't get my triggers for my 360 controller to register as anything. Will play with it somewhere later and see.
  3. Best way i've described it is a bunch of Company of Hero's battles happening at once, in first person, that you could fly too... even drive to. High Commands are the RTS clickers.
  4. These debates go all the way back to the IIIH. It was a long time before the French had the Stuart and the Brits had any 6lbers... a 2lber crusader didn't fair well unless there was a matty around to soak it up. French... well the Chars could take the hit but it was the blens that held the line against IIIH. Spall Damage and the fancy screenshot with all the lines was a happy release. I remember most of the time it was luring the IIIH into a sapper trap. You couldn't brake tracks early on. I'm excited to see the Firefly . Last time I played was Campaign 34 with 3 sorties in 39 it appears. Joined right before 1.9 patch. We all talked about the glory of one day the firefly arrival. Just have to get my Keymaps squared away and I'll be rolling around again.
  5. Hey I got to get discord or what not I suppose, but hello! you guys still kicking?
  6. Originally started with 10th Mountain Division under a feerless WWII Online TnnlRat and his father Vulcan6 and I remember running recon and assisting 23rd when I think they moved from Axis to Allied. Eventually ran with the 11th Hussars and I can't remember all the in between. What squads are active? I started back in the days of 1.9. The subscription price promo drew me in to try it again, was the price I paid back then! I'm finally on thanks to a snow day... few and far between in this adult life... heck I'm 30 now so was it middle school I played this? Started it right after Delta Force Black Hawk Down on PC started its decline from cheaters. Mix in Joint Operations etc, whatever happened to Novalogic? Cutting to the chase, back on target, was hoping to join a tanker group as the group I was with kicked [censored] as recon tankers and the like, I don't know if theres still a stats page, however I have flown bombers to factories or dropped payloads on camped bases or in a huddle of tanks, CAS etc. DB7 life you could wound a 110 if it wasn't looking. Death Trap Blens. I'm up for anything, don't mind hooking and jabbing as a little infantry guy. Do grenades still blow up on contact? I'm sure the mechanics of the game are totally different as far as supply, and I've got to get my controller or joystick going again...we used to bring stuff up and the AHC would decide where supply was eventually, I was in the Allied High Command at one point, those days of typing .fallback :/ I remember driving in a column of Stuart's up to Antwerp and over to stop an axis steam roll with the IIIH, that took hours as it was before the attack objectives and moving armies or what not around, just every base XXX number of whatever. Some quick names to throw out there incase they are still on: Kidd27 Chesehed and his truck Mizzou, Embark, Muzzyman, Blownup, so many more, I see a post from Saber21 and Cosine below, might get on their crew. hmm I have a whole bunch of old screenshots on a couple hard drives I have to mess with. Man I had my keymaps all set back then with flaps on the joystick. Ironically I still have my Saitek Cyborg Evo and hopefully it still works with the newer Windows. I wonder if I still have my little Beyond Blitzkrieg and such Icons on my tank. Photobucket pretty much ate all WWII Online screenshots that were hosted online. Used to have a site on 10mdiv.wwiionline.org when the game gave squads a small low rent page of html.
  7. Wow that thing has serious front fan! I went the coolermaster case route: Got it on newegg while it was on sale for 60 bucks if memory serves me right. I have 2 blue colored LED fans in the front grill now. Since that picture I've sacrificed one cd rom drive (the sliver bezel one) for a Hard drive, also above the fan speed knob is a neat gauge showing how many watts my computer is eating up. Right now its around 100-150 watts its blue LED back lighted, I went with this theme cause its real easy to get stuff in those colors. Its really dirty and dusty actually right now, my house generates alot of dust...might have something to do with all my dads cigarette smoking. EDIT: Taken this opportunity to use my new digital camera: Clickable Thumbnails: Very nice motherboard. It certainly will be considered by me, a guy who can't afford to upgrade all at once again, be nice to keep my ram, video card and other stuff while I work on affording a new Video-card Althought I am an AMD guy at this time. 2nd EDIT: AH HA found an AMD version: http://www.atacom.com/program/print_html_new.cgi?cart_id=6377868_24_53_223_20&Pagecode=SEARCH_ALL&Item_code=MBA9_ELIT_K8_00&USER_ID=www
  8. For my nvidia I've been hanging onto the 84.56 drivers for awhile...part of it is lazyiness to have to change all the settings, part of it is these have given me best performance thus far. (EVGA GeForce 6800 128MB AGP8X)
  9. wow nice link, soundcards can be helpful to free up CPU cycles.
  10. working now, used the golden rule, when in doubt restart ones computer!
  11. Get this "Unable to connect to the Patch Server." error after playgate says "update found". Do I have to undo the live test patch fix this, thought I read I didn't have too. Any help appreciated, Ed
  12. does your keyboard have a "Function" or key with an F in a box or circle or something to that effect to toggle the F keys. I have that same problem but hitting toggleing the function key thing off solved it.
  13. Thanks for all the info fellas. Great advice will probably get the one with the rebate (X-FI Xtreme Music.) Yeah my plans are to keep the sound card for when I build my next rig, (along with CD/HD etc) and keep this one running with minimal stuff for office and web stuff....but thats a bit away from now. Thanks again.
  14. My system is slowing falling behind, but from my understanding I could re-use a sound card on a 64bit/dual core system when I have the funds down the road. So I was thinking of a getting a budget based sound card. What that means in hopefully in the ~100 dollar range... I don't know if that is high-end or low-end... would like less but I doubt I would find it. My main limiting factor is the processor, which is pretty much near the top of the Socket A generation. I know it doesn't take much to get a soundcard better than onboard but I don't know where to look and what all the sound card features are. For example I really don't need a 8 Speaker super card as I play the game with headphones...I might be nicer headphones but its only once in awhile that I have the abilty to use my 5.1 speakers, and thats usually when no ones home, people don't like to be disturbed by the sounds of explosions...ok my dad doesn't. I was thinking about this one... http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=290248 but once again it has alot I don't need...but maybe in order to get the most CPU cycles away from sound that would be needed? If this is a good "no frills" best performance card I'll jump on it and it'll be in here 2-3 days: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=290241 at 30 bucks its pretty much ready for me to pull the trigger. My Specs: AMD Athlon XP 3000+ "Barton" [in an ABIT NF7] Geforce 6800 AGP 128MB [Vanilla version and I am successful in opening up the pipes] 1024MB of Ram [Good Corsiar Stuff] 550w CoolerMaster Power Supply I have a couple hard drives in the system so I took the liberty of moving WWII Online and my pagefile to the non-windows drive, which from my understanding is what one should do. I also move them to a smaller drive which supposedly would aide in seek times or something. Its been awhile since I've played the game, but I squeaked by with decent FPS, it was the huge battles that hurt me but from the Air I could usually make a pass to get the first jitters out of the way then do a bombing run. I could play as infantry pretty well...my tanking skills began to suffer from the occasional FPS drop when looking in concentrated people areas.
