Re: Saitek Config Question

update...did load 2.11, follwed all the detailed uninstall / install instructions, was very careful on the direct x update. Made a point to not update when I loaded from the original disk, but allow the update on the 2.11 install. Thought that might make a difference. Hasn't crashed so far, but have...

Re: Saitek Config Question

Well I still troll this site regularly and in the back of my mind at some point I will replace XP with Windows 7 and it would not surprise me if this problem went away at that point. I sing the praises of BOBII whenever I get the chance (especially the AI). I went back to look and my first post was ...

Re: Saitek Config Question

Combination of things happened. I rebuilt my machine and was having dinputs error messages ( relates to input devices and direct x) and thought maybe it was the joystick. I bought a very inexpensive Saitek replacement stick ( Cyborg v.1 ) to use temporarily to see if the stick was the problem. Prove...

Re: Saitek Config Question

wow..that was a long time ago. I believe I got an answer from Saitek's website, but I have since replaced the joystick too so not a current issue for me.
sorry for not being too helpful, but couldn't find my old posts on Saitek either.

Re: Still getting crashes at 2d - Crash Log, any suggestions?

Thanks Buddye....I will dig into it Strangely enough this was the original problem that sent me down the rabbit hole. The journey exposed the bigger issue I had with the sound card slot in my mother board and am clear of that one now....so the journey was worth while! My computer overall is very sta...

Re: The Wife puts a virtual flyboy in his place!

Well, I have been updating my wife on this thread, since her initial comment sparked the conversation. She was entertained by the responses and commented that perhaps I should start a new thread where spouses commented on the impact of flight sims on their households, getting the perspective from th...

Buddye, 43 years is impressive, my wife and I have been married for 29 years.......thankfully she has developed a serious addiction to Peggle, so she has some understanding.
Happy New Year!

It sure looks a lot the same, and a number of the You Tube video's describe it as "Il Sturmovik's Wings of Prey" It would make a lot of sense since as far as I know Birds of Prey is console onl...
