[QUOTE=Warship;46871122]Just pretend you're playing Euro truck simulator[/QUOTE] turn off the speed limiter, shift to semi-auto and bang on the rev limiter going 90 miles an hour through windy country roads because it's more cost-effective to take the fines and have fun simulating Initial D with a 50-ton vehicle than it is to drive properly?
[QUOTE=Brt5470;46870954]So started classes today. I have Photography 2 from 9 to 11. Multimedia Practicum (Final capstone class) from 1 to 3. Then TV Prodction from 7 to 10. Photo and TV are at the campus near me. And MP is in a campus in davie, which is about an hour away. I'll be driving like 7 hours per week.[/QUOTE] I personally would not mind that. It just costs a lot of money.
[QUOTE=Brt5470;46870954] I'll be driving like 7 hours per week.[/QUOTE] Depending on the car you have I wouldn't really mind. I used to drive 45 minutes to school and back (= 7.5 hours per week) until I got free public transport
I don't know about anyone else but with all this talk of 4K TV this week make them go meh and wish they put more effort into higher frame rate displays instead? I think also I've read somewhere as well that the benefits of going 4K (Or higher resolution for that matter) maybe diminished unless we up the frame rate as well.
4k is nice, but lacks content atm

[QUOTE=Goz3rr;46871154]Depending on the car you have I wouldn't really mind. I used to drive 45 minutes to school and back (= 7.5 hours per week) until I got free public transport[/QUOTE] I don't feel comfortable driving my car at higher speeds like 70Mph. And driving in florida on highways.

I think also I've read somewhere as well that the benefits of going 4K (Or higher resolution for that matter) maybe diminished unless we up the frame rate as well.[/QUOTE] The problem is that most TV content is going to be in the 24, 30, and 60 (interlaced) fps range, which 60 is really only used for live broadcasts and some old TV shows. You can do frame interpolation, but you often get mixed results. Upping the framerate on TVs would serve little benefit unless you created the content and the equipment need to match. [editline]6th January 2015[/editline] [QUOTE=alien_guy;46871183] and bear in mind HDMI has shit bandwidth.[/QUOTE] And this. Its impressive that they managed 4K over HDMI with half the bandwidth of DVI-D.
[QUOTE=Goz3rr;46870925]I have one and it's great, but make sure you don't get one with a gameport because those don't work with Windows 7 and up. One day i'll get mine working again :([/QUOTE] I have the gameport version - can they not be hardware modified to USB?
[QUOTE=alien_guy;46871183]what content would you display on a high frame rate TV? finding 4k content is difficult, good luck getting 120/240fps stuff. and bear in mind HDMI has shit bandwidth.[/QUOTE] I'd display video games for one thing, I get excited by the thought of how smooth the picture could look and how more responsive the game will be as a result. I know that there is fuck all high frame rate material out there but its also the case for 4K, why not start making high frame rate content now and get the ball rolling? Also higher refresh screens can potentially work better with "legacy" content filmed in the frame rates of old, as opposed to our screens now which can only really work well with 30fps content.
[QUOTE=Dawnkiller;46871299]I have the gameport version - can they not be hardware modified to USB?[/QUOTE] And adapter could be used. But like all cheap adapters, your mileage may vary.
I had one client with like 1.5 grand in flight sim equipment. It was crazy and he was trying to use it all off 1 non powered hub.

Its to avoid the "soap-opera" effect, in which high frame 60i framerate is perceived as lower quality. Mind you, 120 hz and 240 hz sets already exist for the second reason you listed, as they can fit 24 fps and 30 fps neatly without pulldown. They only accept up to 60 hz on their inputs though.
[QUOTE=Brt5470;46871211]I don't feel comfortable driving my car at higher speeds like 70Mph. And driving in florida on highways.[/QUOTE] I have no idea what driving in Florida/America in general is like, but the speed limit on that highway was 80mph and I'd usually be doing 110mph because I was late, which meant it took 30 minutes instead of 45
On a level of 1 to Dogshit, KRONOS is a steaming pile. The day we use something else or it is developed to a point to where it does not require outdated versions of Java and IE to run is the day I will be ok with it.
[QUOTE=Dawnkiller;46871299]I have the gameport version - can they not be hardware modified to USB?[/QUOTE] I have the older gameport version too, which doesn't come with the required interals to do passive gameport -> usb converting. I haven't tried one of the active converters though [t]http://i.imgur.com/k48L0LB.jpg[/t]

My main concern is that almost every vehicle dwarfs the size of my Escort.

It's the law here that you should attempt to drive in the right most lane, so the left lane is empty 90% of the time when it's not busy on the roads

Sure, do it on the autobahn, but come on.
There actually is a way to get [URL="http://lankshire.blogspot.com.ar/2011/10/installing-creative-game-port-drivers.html"]gameport joysticks[/URL] working on Windows 7/8, but sadly it's 32-bit only. [editline]6th January 2015[/editline] Speaking of driving, I got to try it for a bit last weekend, on a stick-shift Fiorino, on a dirt road. Only real problems I had were a lack of spatial awareness and not knowing accelerators were so damn sensitive, but otherwise I'm looking forward to finally getting a license.
[QUOTE=GoDong-DK;46871563]How about not doing almost 200km/h on roads where people don't necessarily expect it? Sure, do it on the autobahn, but come on.[/QUOTE] 180-170 isn't 200, plus I only do it when there's nearly no one on the road. If i'm not late i'll do 140/150 depending on the limit (can be either 120 or 130)

[/QUOTE] Technically it's "field rate" with 60i since it's interlaced and known as a field. If you were to convert 60 fields into frames, it would form 30 frames. A frame would be a full image (progressive, 24p, 30p, etc.).

(240+) I remember reading that they, on paper, divide the panel into sub-sections. Say for instance 10 sub-sections at 60Hz each. Bam, suddenly that makes them think it's acceptable to say the TV has 600Hz. Really the same as claiming a 2.5 GHz quad core is 10 GHz.
Torvalds should get a photo of him on top of a desk. it would make 2015 the year of the linus desktop.

But if you deinterlaced it to how an LCD would process it, it'd be 60 frames. Both fields of the pair aren't shown at the same time.
[QUOTE=~Kiwi~v2;46870249]I've actually wondered who owned one here, what is it like compared to other mice in the past.[/QUOTE] It's like a g400 with even better grip and even more comfortable to use. The naos 7000 has a better sensor, you can save profiles to your mouse so no software needed. I think of it as an even better g400.

And it sounds like the LCD would blend the fields together to fill the missing fields based on what you said. Although I don't know how the LCD would interpret an interlaced input but if it was a proper TV, then it should process 60i properly.
