Lots of things have happened between updating this project, first off, a big Congrats to Nate! (CustomPCMax) the happy father of twins, a boy and girl!
I'm picking up the camouflage Psyko Audio headset from Brad today. Yippee!
Next up for the german wwII camo paint, this 15" HD/TV LCD, small, but it's all I have available.. Hey, add a handle and it's a nice mate to our panzerbox. I'll have to look into the handle option.
Hey, congrats to Nate!
And Bill, don't you think a LAN rig could do with a larger screen? I understand that you're constrained by what's available, but 15" for LAN gaming is almost cruel
Yep congrats to Nate .
The monitor is just the right size for it to look like a piece of military equipment I think, not to big, not to small, just right.
eh. in the RNAZAF, ive seen anywhere from small 2.5" screens, to 24", to a specially built 3x3 17" setup for mobile operations.
Yes as you said Oreon there are many types of monitors at the military's disposal.
I should really have elaborated more on my previous comment. What I meant to say was that the 15" inch monitor has the nice chunky industrial/military feel to it and the size is a perfect compliment to the mod.
It fits my budget right now, it's free
alrighty! Got them assembled yesterday just in time to record tmb podcast yesterday. Will hopefully get try them during some game play tonight
They came out gorgeous, bro! Tell Brad kick-ass job! But that's expected.
Oh wow, that looks great Bill!
Amazing job indeed .. its a shame your to far from my country hehehe
That paint does indeed look amazing! Then again, I think Brad's paint work could make anything look amazing.
Crazy work on the headset!
oh wow, nice colour combo, red and digital camo. i love it
Yep the red goes very well with the urban camo theme, they looks awesome. Props to Brad as always.
Next is getting Brad into the game! I finally got Wolfenstein installed last night, and I experienced the Psyko audio headset with 5.1 surround during the game play.
I anticipated more spacial depth from the LR & RR speakers. The background noises don't sound like they're behind me, instead by side and lower from a height wise perspective. I may not have everything properly tweeked in the X-Fi sound card. Creative's software has a plethora of tweeks & sound options. I will get James on the horn and ask for his input.
I will say that the weapon sound effects in Wolfenstein are awesome! I was pleased to see the first weapon you get is the MP40!
I added fake bullet holes to the window today..lol
Using 3/8 drill bit.
To create spiderweb cracks, I etched the surface of the window with a Dremel and these engraving bits
Nice touch! You've got the technique down pat - they look very real in both this and the D-9 case.
Bullet holes look amazing, a very nice touch.
