Avionics Guy for DCS World Extradited to US

Holy shit

>This week it emerged Oleg Tishchenko, a 42-year-old avionics expert at Eagle Dynamics in Moscow, has been extradited to the US from Georgia to face multiple charges connected with the procurement, smuggling and reselling of manuals for recent and current USAF fighters. Tishchenko claims he sourced the manuals to aid him in his development work. Eagle Dynamics has denied all involvement insisting “its employee acted in a purely private context and for his own personal interests.”

>In 2011 Tishchenko used the ED forums to request help in obtaining a series of F-16A/B manuals that were, at the time, for sale on eBay (the seller had made it clear he couldn’t ship outside the USA). Moby, a helpful/naïve forumite from Dallas, agreed to forward the items, not realising until a few months later that by doing so he was breaking at least one US law.

>According to the charges, between January 2012 and September 2015 Tishchenko then sold pdf versions of several different F-16 manuals to individuals in “Cyprus, Japan, Netherlands, Australia, Germany and Taiwan” through eBay. And in March 2016 he attempted to expand and update his library by obtaining manuals for the latest F-16 variants and the F-22 Raptor.

>Charged in 2016, the accused was arrested during a recent visit to Georgia (the country not the state) and shipped to Utah to face the music. His trial is scheduled to begin in Salt Lake City on August 19 and could end with a sentence of 10+ years in prison. Charges against Tishchenko’s “co-conspirator” Moby have been dropped for undisclosed reasons.

>Probably referring to Tishchenko’s 2016 negotiations for more recent ‘Air Force Technical Orders’ (the F-16C/D and F-22 manuals) the Russian Embassy in Washington suggest that their national may have been entrapped by government agents (“There are signs in this case of a provocation by the U.S. intelligence services”)

... Anyone looking forward to that F-16 module (and I guess fingers crossed for an F-22)? I wonder if they'll be scrapped entirely, or otherwise how many of those apparently widely available state secrets actually make it in -- or if they'd even be all that useful in the first place given that it sounds like ED works with military contractors and gets permission to recycle a lot of that into DCS content. Without getting into /pol/shit, it all feels pretty Cold War: pretty sure reselling stuff anyone in the US can download or buy on eBay wouldn't be treated like high-level state espionage in the 90s, but who knows. Anyway, discuss. Or talk about virtual planes, I guess.

Well, thankfully the module is still coming out
Not as interesting to me as the F/A-18 or F-14 (or even the Mig-19), but it still looks pretty cool. $80 though...

Allies and in the case of like half of them current F-16 operators... and agreed

If I've never played Diablo 1 or 2 would it be worth purchasing since I can get them cheap? Diablo 1 is on sale on GOG and I know someone who's got a key for Diablo 2 who'd be willing to part with it probably.

Diablo1 started the real-time action RPG genre and gave a graphical overlay to rogue-likes. Sorcerers with mana shield, teleport & chain lighting is overpowered though.
But it is an old game... however there are some mods to improve it's UI and make the graphics better.

This thread is for anyone who is interested in playing Fallout New Vegas the proper way (because without the bug fixes and optimizations, FNV has some very frustrating problems).

This is EssArrBee, the bible for anyone who knows nothing and wants to successfully install and modify their FNV game.

It's long as hell, but you'll almost certainly skip sections that don't apply to you/aren't interesting to you (since you choose what mods to install). I have a number of things that I use as alternatives to the long-winded methods of EssArrBee (if anyone is interested in setup help, I'm happy to share), but SRB is still a vital guide. If you decide to try installing this game, and have any questions or run into any problems along the way, post in this thread and I'll help.

If you played FNV when it came out, you may have learned how to install mods back then, but the process has changed a lot, and it's much more effective, specifically with regards to using multiple mods without running into crashes and other errors.

I didn't like Brazil much. It started off good enough, but after you leave the vault the plot threads are kind of just dropped, and the larger world feels pretty empty if you try and explore at all.

Why TOTW? Why not just play FO3 after you're done?

How have you spent 400 hours on 1 playthrough? Must be taking your time. If you're struggling to mod it, the key elements of modding FNV are:
1) load order sorting
2) mod cleaning (ITM records, leveled lists, etc.)
3) merged and bashed patch
4) bug fix patches, script extender, and similar utilities

If you get those four things down, you should be all set. I'm happy to answer any question about how to do those things to, even if you're a complete beginner. I just love FNV enough that I'm happy to spread it to others.

FO3 is still really shitty and buggy on an engine level, especially on Win10. ToTW uses NV's version, which is slightly less crash prone.

The problem with Tale of Two Wastelands is you can't create your own back story for the Courier. I like that he starts out weak and naive, and goes on to be one of the biggest power players in the Mojave. I love that basically a mail man is the most dangerous man in the wasteland.

It also makes sense that you level up quickly in New Vegas, you got shot in the head, it makes sense that you'd have to relearn things, but at a faster rate than one normally would if they had to learn them in the first place. The head injury can also result in having a lack of morals, having the courage to rush into battle feeling like you'll get a second chance, being unable to resist stealing items as if you feel like they belong to you, etc.

Haven't played Project Brazil yet, I hear the world feels a little too empty, but I'll judge for myself when I play it later this year. How are the default companions in it? I know you can use certain vanilla companion mods(like the one in my picture) by using the "Place NPC at me" console command.

If your game crashes during the Russel battle at the end of his quest, you can use console commands to skip it.

What videogames do you think would translate to great movies? I think Zelda Majora's Mask would be a great movie if made by Hayao Miyazaki. Also, is it possible for a videogame movie to be good?

Could be something gameplay-focused like the Skate series, or even something creepy like Silent Hill. Maybe you like roaming around on Morrowind and soaking in some lore and hoarding books? Would like to hear what you guys enjoy

I'm teaching my self unreal engine and C++. Every days work is better than the day before. But since I am work on a long project it's based of my shitty previous work.

I've restarted my project 3 times. It's a personal project and I'm self taught so this is part of the process, but it's hard to stay motivated and focused when I keep having to crumple up my work and throw it away and start over again.

Pic is random screen shot of stuff i threw away because I made it too overly complicated and jumbled.

This post is just me ranting into the void to let off stress.

I've started using unity again recently too. I've attempted and given up on game projects before, but I've kinda learned from that now. The first big thing I learned is to keep the project small in scope and realistic. Nothing that's too hard or crazy to program/draw, short game, etc. One of my problems in earlier projects was I wanted to immediately make the best fucking game ever and kept tacking on new ideas halfway into my project.

The other thing I've done is spent a great deal more time in the planning phase. In previous projects I would only have things half through out, so halfway through coding the thing I'd realize I needed something more or that something didn't work and had to rewrite game systems constantly while the game lost its identity. This time I've got the mechanics totally worked out and the vast majority of the story written before I've even started the unity project. Even have some concept drawings from a friend for some characters and locations.

So I'm hoping I might actually finish this project for once. My problem has never been a lack of knowledge, coding comes pretty easy to me. Tends to be losing interest or getting frustrated by setting big unrealistic goals.

Good luck to you OP I hope you're able to finish your project. And my advice is to plan extensively and for your first game make it simple. Lots of classic games have one or two simple mechanics that they flesh out to their limit, and that's a good way to make a great first game.
