sew them on the bag
sew a velcro tab on the bag and attach them on it
buy something like this amazon.com/VELCRO-Brand-Sticky-Fabrics-sewing/dp/B00N0W89Z8 and put it on your bag, then attach the patches on it
I bought the sticky Velcro tape for my gun bag and it worked real good, so I'd go with that if you don't have any experience with sewing.

mednafen, the retroarch fork is especially good because it can do upscaling and has a vulkan renderer that runs really fast.

No clue but it worked pretty well for the AC games I played vs playing them on the PS2.
Using a PSP if you have one works too.

Mednafen. But beware the lack of GUI without a third party application.
You can set it up relatively easy with Retroarch though.

Probably Mednafen, like the other buddies said. I got ePSXe to work, and it runs pretty well, but only after a lot of trial and error, troubleshooting and frustration.

No, unfortunately. With that said, a few retailers might have slipped up and accidentally revealed a late autumn release date. Unconfirmed, of course, but possible.

Nojokur

You can lose tactically but win strategically. Belka's strategy hasn't been stopped by the end of the first act. Sublimation of their enemies through meme warfare and convincing them that uploading their minds is a good idea is but the first step for global domination by Belka in order to unite the world and invade the stealthdimension.

Their results are getting better, they produced two super-aces in 1995 and four in 2010. Maybe more in the meantime. Things are going well.

In the top right of the mission briefing it'll tell you how many yellow targets there are, not including any planes that become yellow, just kill half of them.
Also the 4 times in the game when you can save allies move you towards knight.

T. retard but how do air refuelling planes refuel? Wouldn't they need to constantly stay in the air in case someone needs to refuel in an emergency? They can't know when that'll be right?

Methnerd
Methnerd

No clue on how they are assigned but I imagine they would usually be part of a mission and specifically placed for that, like for that Vulcan raid on Argentinia. Alternatively they loiter in specific places for general support and are rotated with other planes in a set roster.
So as soon as one has to go another can replace it.

MPmaster
MPmaster

They know how long a planes fuel will last so they can organise when and where to put the refueling planes. If it's an emergency then they're more likely to go back to base than try and refuel midair.

If I have a central a pusher on 7 it might as well be a Misericorde with some additional engines and better stabiliser placement. Which isn't a bad thing but still.

A note regarding the Su-30. There are three visually distinct lineages, the original Su-30, the Su-30MKI and the Su-30MKK. Every other variant's differences are limited to avionics or other internals. The Su-30SM, for instance, is based on the Su-30MKI as far as the airframe is concerned.

ANG F-15s almost always fly with 2 bags anyways, so if they were to switch to CFTs instead they'd gain ~3,400lbs of fuel and a slight performance increase. CFTs might also be easier on the aircraft structurally, prolonging their service life.

What makes Assault Horizon so bad? I did the first level just then and it was pretty fun, the dogfight mode was really strange though but it isn't a deal breaker.

Playboyize
Playboyize

the dogfight mode
Have you played any other game in the series, buddy? Dogfight mode removes any and all input from the player just to provide cheap eye candy. It removes the key aspect of the games, intelligent dogfighting, to replace it with a glorified series of physics-defying QTEs. It eliminates all need to think during a fight thanks to a purely reflex-based system, and multiplayer battles would easily become nigh-incomprehensible furballs where half of the participants could be obliterated in the first three seconds without even realising what happened
Some shots are quite pretty, of course, but almost everyone here got tired of it rather quickly. Combined with the story, underdeveloped characters, and frustrating fights, it really ruined any and all potential AH might've had.

At the time there had been a certain amount of discussion about Macross, so we took some requests. I remember not doing all of them because there was some backlash about this not being a Macross general. Which would be true even if there was a takeover, since there was no idolshit discussion.
You can generally tell our stuff apart by the thickness of the lines. Also the gradient of grey is due to the brush I use to sketch, so that's an additional tell since Pilot uses clean, thin lines when sketching.

Being a massive /m/ fag, designing mechs is very enjoyable. The reason for their prevalence is however a marketing one.
toys for children
At first, of course. Some years ago it was mostly for plamo hobbyists if there was a model line and ever since there's been a dry spell of sorts in regards to mecha shows.
Back on topic, the humanoid shape makes mecha more dynamic and generally more eye-catching. Plus you can add all sorts of theatrics normal vehicles just can't do.

have a Frame Arms Styletto in display on my bookshelf
fucking satisfying even if I'm not particularly skilled at modelism
have couple unbuilt ones: a Shiranui TSF and FA:G Stylet
no time to build them and they slip out mind, tucked as they are in a cupboard
Feels bad.
I haven't drawn mechs in a while, especially original ones. I have a lot of pet peeves regarding the "mainstream" Gundam-like and the "western" styles, so I do things closer to early ACs or slim wanzers.
I remember drawing an R-101 based TSF, it was an interesting experiment as far as I'm concerned, even if the result wasn't much to write home about.

mechs
Personally I like the more battletech ones or something like Metal Gear where it is less humanoid and more walking tank or beast. Something that looks kind of feasible.

slim wanzers.
Good taste.
Ring of Red also has some neat ones they converted WW2 Panzers into mechs.
One of the light mechs was a Pz II and one of the heavy four legged ones was a KV1.
It's kinda cool.

A friend found it and sent it to me. The gameplay could be more involved. As in I wish the mech control was actual VC tier realtime and that the aiming was proper aiming instead of just waiting for the hit % to go up.
But I love the designs and the specials. They have like neat, drawn cockpit shots for them.

almost all correct, except the fictional planes
they more revolve around the CFA-44 and the X-02 rather than the ADFX as Zero is almost never mentioned because of its middle child status and low sales despite being perfection on a disk and they want to appear like series vets so they jump straight onto AC04 after learning there are games before 6

Just some idle thinking: What do you imagine ayy "modern" aircraft could be like?

Boy_vs_Girl
Boy_vs_Girl

Ayys fly saucers Dornie.

PackManBrainlure
PackManBrainlure

Probably similar assuming same physics and similar engine tech. A tube with some wings.
The really interesting part is to try and figure out sensible controls and seating for some of the weirder alien designs. They might also be completely different. If there is a yoke it might not operate elevators and ailerons but the rudders and throttle or some shit.
You know trying to reinvent the wheel basically so you can have something different from our solution.

Bidwell
Bidwell

I don't like saucers.
I imagine the overall fuselage+wings would be a constant, the amount, placement and shapes of the control surfaces would be the main distinguishing features of their "style". But then again science would mean that they'd tend towards designs similar to ours. And that bothers me from a designer standpoint. I want to draw distinctive things, something that feels unreal but without it being retarded.

SomethingNew

Agreed, saucers are lame, but that's what the little green bastards choose to fly. Don't as me why.

SniperGod

This is going to be weird after
I want to draw distinctive things
but the ayys I draw are very much humanoid on surface level. I can handwave it with "no humans in the setting" and "artistic license" but it's mostly because I've dabbled in SW forever thanks to my father's VHS tapes. And the humanoid aliens always struck me as more relatable than the "funny" looking ones.

SniperGod

You guys need to upgrade your taste. Best pirate flies a saucer after all.

Even so. The controls ans loom on the Umbaran ships were different from the rest. Or again, use levers and all since they have arms and then assign functions in a different but still logical way.

I just used Umbara as an example. They had those weird floaty controls. Or the Genosian ones are scent/pheromone controlled or something.
You know stuff like that.

Umbraran ships had touch screens for control, right?
JAM
I might sketch something once I'm done working.
I actually quite like these designs, but there's something that feels off to me. It doesn't feel very "balanced". Maybe a smaller disc hull? It's too iconic to change, maybe lowering the engines below it? I can't really put my finger on it.
Geonosians used their sense of smell as a radar interface according to the cross-section books iirc.

Yeah the clones struggled to figure it out. But it was all in a floaty bubble with virtual controls instead of physical ones

scent radar
Yeah or that. My point was just to try and use whatever oddities the alien has as part of the design in a logical way. I mean we rely on our eyesight a lot but some alien might not and it might be all about hearing or whatnot so they may go with some weird sonar shit and instruments that generate sound over gauges.
Or like the JAM with their visual communication over voice.

Here's another saucer.

If you want a somewhat more aerodynamic thing though make the shield generators meet and add the canopy ontop of that instead of having that nose.

No problem
Elaborare on that second organ because I didn't get it.

Firespawn
Firespawn

The circadian rythm is the sleep/wakefulness rythm of a living being.
Some animals (mostly reptiles off the top of my head) have a photoreceptive organ dedicated to it's regulation, the parietal or pineal eye. It's placed between the parietal bones and connects to the pineal gland.
In higher vertebrates it's functions are integrated into the eyes, hence the lack of "third eye".
