Vector Expansion and BoB2

Hi guys. Thought I'd pop over here and post this, as it has become quite a issue now that that most major problems with the sim have been worked out. There seems to be a problem with VE and how the Spitfire gunsight centers in the sim.....for a better explanation, I provide this link : BoB2 General ...

Re: TIR4 Losing Connection

<t>Hey Dizz!!! How're things in the 310th?<br/> <br/> Ok, I have the same thing pretty much. If you see my post called 'TIR Won't Shut Off', you will see I had a couple strange occurrences. At Rick's suggestion, I switched my TIR to a powered hub, and this particular little quirk still surfaces freq...

Re: TIR 4 Won't Shut Off...LOL

<t>Update; well, okay, that worked for about a week, but the past 2 days, when I boot my PC for the first time each day, I have to unplug and replug for the unit to be recognized. It's ok after that.<br/> <br/> I have a new powered hub to try out tomorrow, will see if that helps. Strange that the TI...

Re: TIR 4 Won't Shut Off...LOL

Rick -- no, I haven't, but thank you very much for taking the time to do that!!! I do have a powered hub ( 4 port ) which has my 3 CH controllers attached ( and used to have X45 also ). I have one port left, and it might be worth a try....or, I can pick up another powered hub and dedicate it solely ...

Re: TIR 4 Won't Shut Off...LOL

<t>Ok, well.....it's not really enough to say 'Eureka', but, so far, that last action has seemed to improve things a bit....too early to say 100%, but, several boots and no loss -- and, disabling the unit while booting IL2/PF works again like it did with TIR2.<br/> <br/> There is no explanation...ex...

Re: TIR 4 Won't Shut Off...LOL

<t>I know Strangely, this behavior never evidenced itself with the TIR2 and software....only since the TIR4.<br/> <br/> I am today trying something.....I had added a Saitek USB keyboard a while back, just for the backlighting -- this was while I still had the TIR2. Never experienced any problems, bu...

Re: TIR 4 Won't Shut Off...LOL

<t>Hmmm...it did the 'playing dead' thing again this morning. On powering up my PC, it was there ( light was lit ), but when XP booted, it went blank. Unplugging and plugging back in brought it back.<br/> <br/> Strange, since during my work week I have no time to play, so hadn't even used it since S...

Re: TIR 4 Won't Shut Off...LOL

<t>Thanks, Rick. Yes, I had actually read that part of the manual.....hehe....what confused me was that, in my mind, if the unit wasn't loaded ( i.e., the software was 'off' ), the low power/stand by portion wouldn't be applicable. Since 'off' to me means using min power anyway.... And I have told X...

Re: TIR 4 Won't Shut Off...LOL

<t>LOL! I remember her...she was the one that got away. Always...... Now if it happened, I'm old enough to know to have patience......and recon ALL the possible exits before settling in.... <br/> <br/> Thanks for the info about the flashing LED's.....I was starting to worry it was sitting there sign...

Re: TIR 4 Won't Shut Off...LOL

<t>Aye, Toady, it did indeed make sense, and i appreciate the reply. That is, though, what I was doing....clicking File, then Exit, then answering Yes. But it wasn't stopping in the background. It seemed to work ok if I was just editing a profile, then quitting the app.....but after a game session w...
