Getting the Thrustmaster Quadrant Airbus Edition Thrust to work in Flight Simulator 2020

So, as I got a Honeycomb Yoke, I had the problem that in contrast to HOTAS devices, yokes like the Honeycomb do not some with a Trust Lever.

The solution was for me the Thrustmaster Quadrant Airbus Edition and running is without the flight stick that is also available as a combo with that device.

Now, while installing the TFHT driver package made it working in Windows 10 and discoverable in Flight Simulator, nothing was assigned to it. As I tried assigning everything manually, I failed in doing so, so I asked Thrustmaster tech support for help and they send me a detailed PDF called “abnormal procedure” that I want to share with you:

Of course I had to avoid mapping of such buttons and switches that the honeycomb share with the Airbus Quadrant!

Hope this helps! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy flying! ๐Ÿ™‚

Metro 2033 does not run on Windows 10 x64 for you? It could be your language settings!

I don’t know if it has anything to do that I bought my physical copy of Metro 2033 at Amazon Germany, but even the normal troubleshooting route, with the Steam Community, Nvidia or THQ Nordic would result in a working game for me.

A thread in German that was posted recently pointed me to the solution.

So here is what I sent to THQ Nordic, Nvidia and the Steam Community as a solution:

Hi there!

Hi there all, thanks again for going on with troubleshooting with me. Since neither a discussion thread on Steam Boards , nor NvIdia or THQ Nordic tech support could help me. I wanna share the solution which was posted recently in a German thread on this game’s Steam discussion forum: Go to the game properties in Steam and change language from English to German. The game will still be in English by the way but it will run flawlessly.

Why that is no idea. But I wanted to share that the said solution also worked for me! ๐Ÿ™‚

Why Skype Cloud Recording only records 8 fps

If you wonder why the Skype Cloud Recording only records 8 frames per seconds, worry not, you are not the only one having this issue. In fact this change has been done globally for all users using Skype. Due to the pandemic, the amount of users signing up to Skype has risen a load and the server load skyrocketed. In order to balance out this load, the recording functionality has reduced the 15 fps to 8 fps temporarily until March 2021.

The team who made this decision didn’t bother to tell tech support department about it, hence nobody knew about it when I contacted tech support about this first.

I went through all support levels until I have reached T3 which just called me this morning, to inform me about the situation.

Also somebody started a thread about it on reddit, this is how I knew I am not the only one affected.

There will be an article about it on the Skype Blog informing all users about this shortly.
