Hey guys,

Just wanted to invite you to my new You Tube channel "The Viper Simmer".  I hope to bring a new look to online flying videos, as well as cockpit building tips, and gear reviews and more.  Please help get me started by liking and subscribing!

Well since you asked...

I uploaded a review of the FSX DUAL-M.  If you use a flight helmet and/or headset this is the item to get!

Hey Jody!
I have a feature request. When you post the videos, can you do a version with no music? I like to hear what BMS is doing and I pay attention to sounds from comms and the cockpit. Thanks
Title: Re: The Viper Simmer
Post by: Marvin on September 01, 2020, 06:39:29 PM
Hmmm, strange none of my recent videos have music?
Title: Re: The Viper Simmer
Post by: Nigel on September 05, 2020, 03:48:01 PM
The first one in this thread, it has some cool flying. No big deal, I just like to hear the engine and cockpit sounds to learn from. I dont fly a lot yet and the audio cues help.

Next project - add seat cuing!

I fly a Trainer that got updated with a motion seat a bit ago...and I can tell you that it makes a huge addition, more so than the sounds...with ONE rather big flaw - when you throttle up, the seat pushes into your back...you should actually sink into the seat like the seat bottom does when you pull G.

I've flown a Trainer or two with seat cushions that operate just in this manner (and have been told I'm probably the only one around that has, because I was the first one to call them out on it) and it's really big augment for immersion.

If you wear a torso harness and strap in, include strap tightening - and don't forget to think inside-out!

Who doesn't like a good old Ramp Start video to see everything in action??

Cool video. I felt identified with your intro, a good old ramp start really gets you in the zone for a mission.

As usual, very nice vid @Marvin.  :thumbsup: Sorry you have to clean out the pit and put the chair back in again.  :harhar:

Indeed, very interesting ending  :bounce2:  Also very instructional, I guess.  When the lady says "pull up" you better listen / obey  :D

Keep them coming @Marvin  even though they make me feel very humble (no flying skillz whatsoever here)

Yeah I normally don't get shot down, so this made it fun.  But then I was like, how am I going to end off this video??  lol  So a little Youtube searching helped me find some suitable footage to use.

Super COOL Jody, ill hae to try that too when I get into the saddle again.

Im also almost done with my pit, just a fed pcb change on the HMD, Audio 1 and 2 panels then everything works.

in the meentime I do some stability test in the pit to see how everything works in the long run and so far all is good.

I get e new GFX card this week that can handle 6 screens at one time and not only the 4 that is normal.  so looking forward to this.

Title: Re: The Viper Simmer
Post by: Marvin on November 18, 2020, 06:27:43 PM
What other screens are you adding?
Title: Re: The Viper Simmer
Post by: Kukki on November 18, 2020, 06:47:57 PM
What other screens are you adding?

For now I have the ATD, 2 x MFD´s and the 3 projectors, then I will have one output left for my CPD if I want that active, but for now I have all the real instruments in the CP working (SIMTEK).

so now I have 2 GFX cards in my pit to run my screens and like the option now that my main GPU will be to slow for BMS in the future :-)

Tha is why I have invested in this: https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-R57XTAORUS-8GD-rev-10#kf

Its 95% faster/powerfull than my 5+ years old AMD R9 FuryX Card.

Nice video again @Marvin.  :thumbsup:

Just one suggestion. Your previous tutorial says turorial in the title (green text). Now that does not affect the quality of your video or what you are trying to do. But I thought perhaps you might want to change it. Its up to you. Sometimes I read a text I wrote myself, 10 times and I wouldn't be able to see if my name was written upside down so...

Ha ha ha man I never noticed that!  Thanks I will correct that.

Hey crew,

We did our first Live Stream last night.  Although we had a technical issue in the beginning that somehow reset all my audio levels (making my mike very hot and distorted) it went well considering we live streamed a 2.5 hour flight!  Was a lot of fun and certainly better than spending 6 hours editing a video when you can just live stream it.  ;)  So this will be the new way to go for me.   Here is a little clip from the action last night.
