  1. It was much better yesterday than it is today...I'm getting a lot slower load times again, the posting and search are working good now though. Edit: actually the search loads nice and quickly, if you can get the forums to load like the search results....then victory will be yours!
  2. that might just be a USB power issue, try if you can, to see if the throttle is on a different USB motherboard header than anything ells so its not sharing the power, after that, I'm out of ideas for you to try except for the obvious one of contacting saitek? its a new product it could be a driver/software/hardware issue with their product.
  3. which version of windows are you using? first check to make sure the software/drivers are correct for the version of windows your using (i'm sure they are, but check anyway) then, check its in usb2 slots some composite devices don't work well in usb3 slots. also check that the usb slots are actually working. some of them may be switched off in your bios because the resources are being used for somthing else then you might need to go into the software you downloaded for your joystick and re-calibrate the joystick there. to calibrate your axis you need to open the mad cats Hud application then click (settings) select your joystick then click (calibrate axis) If that works go to (devices and printers) find your joystick and select (game controller settings) and a popup named "Game controllers" should come up . with two butons (advanced) and (properties) on it click on (advanced) and make your joystick the preferred device, then click on (properties) and select the Test tab if you can see the joystick buttons then it should be recognizing your joystick. you can check that for the throttle too, but you don't make it the preferred device, well unless you actually want to for some reason.
  4. Three suggestions first, downloadable/selectable default keymaps for common joysticks/Rudder pedals etc. second, get the game optimised for nvidia shadowplay. third start using somthing other than TS3 for coms, I'ts nice to use somthing familiar, but ts3 overlay has compatibility issues. While non of these things enhance gameplay in themselves and at first glance may be a waist of resources. They would make life simpler for users, it's nice when things just work smoothly together, and that should help with member retention which in the long run would mean more mula rolling in.
  5. well, it's easy to believe given all the lag, but honestly there's just two much of it, I honestly think you'll find that when the issue if minimised/fixed it will go away, and while I am not naïve enough to think people don't cheat. I think for the vast majority of incident's it's just poor code/lag/offset etc.
  6. who said it had to be random, it could just as easily be specific to location, service provider, path to server, equipment, drivers, or a myriad of other things any of which could make it seem like a select few to one group while other players or groups could have different specific lists. you could even be on one.
  7. yep, it's an odd thing to get used to, that lag in this game can give you an advantage, were in most fps games its a distinct disadvantage. its nobody's fault, but it can be as frustrating as hell...it dose seem to have become a lot worse of late, and if CRS can find out why and minimise it....the better this game will be.
  8. they are two different issues, offset is when you see people coming through the wall next to the door or visa versa, or have difficulty getting up the stairs etc, it can be fixed by rebooting. lag... is what it is, you just see people late or visa versa , sometimes very late. I once shot a guy and saw him run out the room and up the stairs before he died, mostly depends on were you from. you can always move to Texas. when somebody has both which can and is often be the case.. then...
  9. No I did it to play too, so now I may have to wait 3 mins, I'll make a cup coffee.....:) and post in the forums while i wait It's not a b1 if its true, So if you can't see which appears more important to CRS, when they introduce a feature to "balance the sides" But then are Actively going round telling people that they will turn it off if you give them extra chash, then hay
  10. I wouldn't worry, I'm sure all they have to do is edit a file somewhere, now that they have your money you don't expect them to be jonnie on the spot do you, thats just unreasonable. Just think soon.
  11. I went hero. Got a confirmation. Still got a 2.5 minute delay login in![/ LOL a) The game gets the offset bug, that to fix you have to reboot the game... a) CRS introduce a 3 min login delay as a feature that will allegedly balance the sides. c) But the feature not only annoys some people on login, it actually exasperates people who attempt to fix the offset bug by re-booting. d) CRS do a Don Corleone and whisper in your ear "give us $30 bucks a month and we'll make the feature disappear...." (which sort of defeats advertised purpose of the feature.) e) You take it up the keister and pay.. f) You still have login delay....... no need to panic, It'll be fixed soon. what was your first thought again? Don't worry, I'm sure that's not the case CRS, would never take advantage like that.
  12. when there are no missions for a particular service.. e.g there or no air missions in the French air force, or no British navy missions. The rank required to create them be changed to 0/ftp for the first mission only. so that new players or players trying out the game can access all areas. currently there are certain times of day (quite long periods of time) when its impossible for lower ranks / free to play to access parts of the game, without having to ask somebody else to stop what they are doing to create a mission for them, this is haphazard to say the least. and these are the times where it would be most beneficial to actually get more players playing. foot shoot and self are words that spring to mind.
  13. Have you tried opening the volume mixer in windows and setting ts and the game to the required volumes? Have you tried setting the hotkeys to change channels without flipping between game and ts? Have you tried using TeamSpeak overlay so you can see who's talking to you in-game without looking at TeamSpeak?
  14. wouldn't play without it's fun to chill and chat. ...and in-game flying without ts is like flying with a blindfold...
