  1. That looks remarkably straight forward. He does a decent job of explaining where everything goes and what it all does. I'll give that a go when I find the time. When the wheel arrived and I got it out the box, it had that "hasn't been used for a while" smell about it, so I would suspect there's just a bit of dust stopping the pedal coming all the way back up. It's a great wheel, though. I love the feel of it. Even thinking of starting to use the shifter, rather than sticking with auto gears.
  2. That could work. Does it fold flat?
  3. It worked fine for a couple of days, then started acting up. It only takes the lightest of taps to stop it happening, but it's just a bit distracting. I have compressed air, I'll give it a go. Got a link to guidance where to spray it? What's electrical contact cleaner? Will it also involve dismantling the pedals?
  4. I bought the PS3 Driving Force GT that @Pug was getting rid of and have run into a bit of an issue. It seems like the brake pedal doesn't always come back all the way up when I take my foot off it. In GT5, it acts like I have my foot permanently resting on the pedal. If I give it a tap with my foot or flick my foot off the pedal, so it pings back up, it works fine. But this is kinda annoying. Given that there doesn't seem to be a calibration option in GT5, is there a way around this? Is anyone away of this kind of problem with this or other wheels and, if so, is there an easy fix? While I'm here: I've now got three / four wheels (two of them are Xbox 360 ones) and, while the Xbox ones sit on my knee fine and the two Logitechs use the lap attachment, I'd like to be able to clamp them to something. Is there a cheap, foldable universal solution for this?
  5. Self bump double quote. Fella who picked it up plans to turn it into an arcade cabinet. Has already got about ten. Its gone to a good home...
  6. I actually managed to sell this in eBay. Only for a fiver, like, but it get a it out the house
  7. I actually still have it, it's this: First proper "computer game" was Punchy on the Commodore 16, a Hunchback clone that came with the machine. First console game was Mario All Stars, which was the pack in with the SNES I got for my birthday one year. It remains the only Mario platform game(s) I've played.
  8. I suspect this telly predates Who Wants to be a Millionaire by a good 20 years...
  9. My missus said we could contact the Enterprise with it...
  10. I need to go back and re-read a load of the Gaunt's Ghosts books. I skim read* a lot of them, so somewhat lost track of what was going on. I just need to work out how far into the series I read properly. Reading Talon of Horus at the mo, which is exploring similar themes. It's a brilliant book as well. Lords of Silence was good for that as well. There seems to have been a shift away from the traitor legions just being inhuman bad guys who are just mad for the chaos worship and death and destruction, and giving them more human characters and motivations. * it was actually because I needed reading glasses and was struggling to read anything, which made it a bit of a chore.
  11. They look like zits to me. Which would fit the theme.
  12. As detailed in another thread, I have a CRT that I just don't use. Would anyone want it? It's a big, old Philips. 24" screen, though the model number starts with a 25, so I'm guessing they claimed it was 25". It's done just about e everything I've thrown at it, PAL and NTSC. Though I seem to remember I struggled to get it to display NTSC Wii games. It has these connections As well as the rca sockets on the front. It's stereo and seems to do surround sound It's actually got a speaker on top as well as the sides, which I think is supposed to do semi-surround, somehow. Built in teletext, either be biggest remote ever: Free to whoever can come and collect it from Liverpool. It weighs a fuckload, though...
  13. I can't remember if I grabbed this, certainly meant to.
  14. I'll be honest, I don't think I've switched on either console for a number of years. It's only the fact I don't like the idea of having them there with no option to play them that makes me want a solution. And I realized last night that, if I really want to play them, I can use the TV in the kids' lounge, since I only ever play games when they're asleep.
  15. I'd be interested in both of these, especially the PS3 one. I keep meaning to go back to the GT series, but have never made it past the PS3 titles. Is the 360 one the wireless one? I'm always worried mine is going to pack up.
