BattleStations/Weapons of War

Post by LeeStricklin »

Title of the thread should be self-explanatory. Let's see them rigs. I'll start with mine, as you can see I'm in the process of incorporating a WIDE variety of controllers for all different purposes and setting them up to be 100% accessible at all times, allowing me to jump from multiple sim controls, gamepads, keypads, keyboard, and mouse all within the same game.

Serious gamer.

My beast consists of a PC, monitor, keyboard, mouse, and wifi card.. lol

Aka basic.

Very cool setup though. Would be interesting to play games via different controls

Serious indeed. I've been very deep into the hobby for my entire life, but up until recently haven't had much in the way of sim equipment. I've been taking advantage of the low price of vintage hardware (particularly gameport devices) in order to acquire things that were really good at their time (Suncom's F15 peripherals and CH's Virtual Pilot Pro for example) and have primarily been targeting things that were prized at the time of me getting my first PC as well as more iconic and recognized peripherals (such as my Model M keyboard, the new iteration of Intellimouse is next on my list to acquire). Only thing I'm really missing (because sadly my G520 went completely out, flyback and tube) is a quality CRT. Half of the real fun of owning all of these is piecing them together in a way where they work with one another, for my gas/brake pedals for example I'm thinking of removing them from their original base and putting them in a Y shape on my right rudder pedal. I'm thinking of doing something similar for my USB foot switches and left rudder pedal.

Got up off of my lazy ass and FINALLY after thinking about it for a literal 13 years, got around to mounting literally ALL of my videogame controllers and sim equipment. End result would give a few players anxiety lol For my HOTAS I've incorporated folding brackets intended for table legs and for my wheel, yoke, and quadrant I built a sliding shelf out of a chopped up milk crate, tool shelf, and dresser drawer mechanism. The only real thing left to do now is make repairs to my super rare F15E Eagle stick (tac switches need replaced and potentiometers need cleaned which is why I have my standard SFS hooked up instead) and find a cheap amp for the extra surround sound I have lying around. btw ALL of these peripherals are pretty much at the ready with the flip of a switch and my Cyber Snipa and N52 are 100% accessible any time my throttle and Strategic Commander are folded down.
