Tech Talk / X-52 problem
« Last post by JudgeDredd on Today at 07:20:21 AM »
So I noticed that when I exit a game, on occasion, my mouse would go sluggish, the system would be unresponsive (the mouse would move - sluggishly - but clicking would result in nothing) and there'd be occasional beeping noises. The keyboard would be fine though. Loading task manager showed No processes running at all.

In the end, it required a reboot of my system.

I've now tracked this down to my X-52. Whenever I unplug my Saitek X-52 Pro flight stick after playing a game, the system goes into it's unresponsive mode as described above. This ONLY happens with my X-52 (unplugging my steering wheel is fine).

Bloody annoying. Effectively coming out of any space or flight sim results in a hard reboot.

Is that a consumable for Scipio?
Elephants also don't like loud noises.
A friend claimed that Scipio trained his musicians to get close and blow their tubariums suddenly near the ears at Zama.
I voted for the Longest Day.  Oh, wait. 
Tora Tora Tora is one of the finest historical war films ever made.  And I'm a stickler, I've spent my life career and a couple of degrees on history, and find very few flaws with it. 

But....I voted Patton.  George C. Scott delivered one of the greatest screen performances of all time.  And structurally, visually, it's just a better movie.  Maybe not truer and more accurate to history, but a better movie.  I can't look away when either film is on the screen, but I have to give Patton it's due.  Scott took over and embodied the role, to the point where I see him more than the actual historical figure.  The feat of acting it takes to achieve that is simply too much for me to ignore.

But, but... panzers?!?

Although, funnily enough they are M48 "Patton" tanks.  :D

Herb Score - Pitcher.  Dominant until hit in the face by a ball.
Early, but so far so good.
Historically the weakeness of elephants are missile weapons, particularly the Javelin. FoG 2 does this well.
Poking elephants with pike or spear will eventually kill them but people argue thatís that the rampage will be directed on the poking side and it wonít be pleasant.  So itís better to make the elephants panic before close combat.

That's actually the problem with them.  They're way too large.  I've tried to do an RPG scenario with mine and it's unwieldy to the extreme. 

Magnificent table piece though.  But yeah, pretty useless in all but the largest scenarios. 

Deeplly excited to see how all this will work when Legion comes out soon.  I've got about a $300 pre-order on that system.
