I really take offense to this "dumbing down" comment coming from the PC crowd... as if console games are somehow for the stupid.

I think a better way to put it would be "streamlining" user controls and interface [the latter being something that PC games have always struggled with imo]. Other than keyboard and mouse and perhaps tweaking a .cfg file [which many, including me, consider cheating in that you can give yourself an advantage such as fov] I don't know exactly what is being "dumbed down".

But it seems to be PC only gamers last trumpet call at proving their platform's superiority. But then again, there is nothing ever specific given... just the call itself, which usually stands baseless.

I'm as hard-core as they come, at 37 I've played games since Atari 2600 religiously, hell, I even bought a 3DO the day it came out. I've went from console gamer [strictly] to a PC gamer in the 90's [strictly] and now back to 95% console only play. I never hardly even touched a console in the 90's. PC was where it was at, where all the exciting new stuff was coming out, where online was. It was the total package.

They are simply calling it as it is, as I see it. Anyone arguing otherwise probably has a vested interest or is so close minded to anything other than their norm would not even give consoles a fair shake.

It's true, in the 90's, PC games reigned supreme, but with the advent of newer technologies and the push to online play on consoles, and the fact that console games now actually do FPS's justice, there is simply nothing alarming standing out on the PC besides for Blizzard titles. Great companies like Bungie, who used to be PC/Mac only are now on consoles, not to mention Epic, id Software, Ubisoft and tons of others there just aren't enough PC "must have" exclusives for me to spend the amount of money and time keeping my PC up to date.

just my opinion of course

To be honest, I'll be glad when console become hybrid PC's and allow for keyboard/mouse and can hook up to monitor's. Granted the 360 has VGA out and the PS3 has keyboard/mouse, but neither do them both and there's not enough acceptance yet. My hope is PC gamers will get all the options they want from a console soon, such as the aforementioned stuff, and just completely come over. I honestly like that idea. I'd hook a console up to my PC monitor with the keyboard/mouse for FPS and RPG's etc. and another to my home entertainment system for sports, racers, action titles.

i tried that Xero... it still ran at 20 fps (sometimes 30).

the only thing i might think of is i just installed the new XTreme-G 78.03-HDv2 drivers. but that wouldn't explain why DOD:S runs so butter smooth with all settings maxed out.

i have a feeling this game runs a lot better on ATI cards, especially considering the X360 version and all.

i'm gonna try the new nvidia 78.05 drivers and see if it'll run better. i'll report back.

ran at 20 fps on my rig...

3.4 p4
2 gig ram
6800 GT
Audigy 2

...it ran like shit... and this is with settings on average.

As a comparison DOD:S runs extremely smooth with all settings maxed and looks 10x better.

Like I said... it says Joystick, but when I go to remap the keys to anything analog on my Wingman Extreme, it will not map it.


So, to answer you... no, it does not completely support flight sticks. Feel fortunate it works on yours, it doesn't work for everyone correctly.
