  4. Using AIO Computer as External Monitor with Touchscreen

    I've already got it set up as a second monitor using HMDI. Just trying to spoil myself with the touch screen.
  5. I have a Dell Inspiron 2330 All-in-One computer with touchscreen capability. I no longer use it as a computer because it's been replaced by a new one. I'm now using it as a second monitor. Is it possible to use it with it's touchscreen capability?
  6. Correct your TS and TFAR Versions

    Attention All Hands, There was some apparent confusion regarding the last TFAR update, as well as some changes to the way it operates with Teamspeak. These are, most likely, what resulted in last night's issues of comms dropping. So. In clear black and white: The only authorized version of TFAR is: TFAR 1.0245 Newly effective, the only authorized version of Teamspeak is: Teamspeak 3.1.4.2 (32-bit) Teamspeak 3.1.4.2 (64-bit) Updates to Teamspeak, even minor updates, are no longer authorized until further notice. Everyone must fix these, immediately. You need it fixed before the next operation. That gives you 3 weeks. There is no excuse to not have this done. Anyone out of sync with these orders will be subject to disciplinary action, as the failure to correct this on even one person will result in the same issues as last night. -Col Penny MEU CO
  7. ACE Changes

    Attention All Hands, Since 2014, when the last CH-46 flew in the USMC and this unit, we have been operating the MV-22 Osprey. It is the central mode of long-range transport for the USMC. For us it has been a pillar... if a shaky one. The unit has always had a love-hate relationship with the bird, and its pilots. Today we end that relationship. The MV-22 is, as stated, intended for rapid, long-range deployment. For us this simply doesn't happen, leading to poor optimal use of the bird itself. That, mixed with limited use of the section, as well as shaky mod grounds, has led us to this decision. Effective 17JUL17 the MV-22 Osprey will no longer be an operational aircraft of this unit. All members of the detachment will be transferred, and staffed in to, the HMM-466 "Wolfpack" CH-53E Detachment. This will probably result in one extra aircraft for the detachment temporarily. The CH-53 detachment will be officially expanded to four operational aircraft. Since the Aviation Combat Element of the MEU revolves around the medium helicopter squadron, reinforced by other detachments, the name VMM-164 will remain. ACE will continue to be known as VMM-164 (REIN), and the ACE HQ staffed under that name, but there will no longer be an operational detachment of VMM-164. There will be an additional change to ACE, in efforts to increase productivity/opportunity within the section. Effective immediately, the numerical limits of those allowed to hold the MOS 7513 (UH-1Y/AH-1Z Qualified) will be removed. Those looking to be qualified under the 7513 MOS will still need approval by ACE HQ prior to entering the qualification process, but there will no longer be any limits to how many people may hold that MOS. -Col Penny MEU CO

    Actually solved the issue yesterday. You'll see them slowly start to creep back.
  9. Happy Birthday eMarines

    15th MEU (SOC) Realism Unit Ten years ago today our doors opened. Ten years ago our story began. Aided and led by four able and wise men (2ndLt Savage, 2ndLt Schultz, Sgt Phillips and Sgt Tigernan) the saga that is the 15th MEU (SOC) Realism Unit began. Through trials and tribulations those four gentlemen planted the seeds and guided the beginnings of a monumental gaming organization. From June 21, 2007 to June 21, 2017 these hallowed halls have seen 3,200 individuals from around the entire world, all of whom have had the honor and privilege to call themselves eMarines of the 15th MEU (SOC) Realism Unit. From the unknowns and brand new members of today, to the legends and monuments of yesterday like Buckhana, Orosz, Hartman, Barton, Drumheller, Miller, Martinez, Starck, and Conrad... our history is a story, and each individual has their own. This unit is second to none. By that I mean... no one stands above. No one can contest our strength. No one can contest our lineage. No one can contest our excellence. This is exemplified by not only our time of existence... 10 years this day (3,654 days)... but by the amount of people who are still here two years, five years, or even nine years into their service in this unit. Even those who are not with us anymore are influenced and damned proud of their service here while they continue the virtual careers elsewhere and lead other units. Our influence is unmatched. Today we are a unit strong of 275 individuals in Active Duty performing various roles around this unit from administrative clerking, to tank gunner, to squad leader, to aviation detachment leaders, to MEU Commanding Officers. Of those 275 individuals.. each cohesively working together and melding themselves into the team of the unit.. I am overwhelming proud of each and every one. There are few honors higher than being able to call yourself a member of this unit, and that is not because we've lasted ten years or some sort of system we've enacted.. but because of the culture, family, and unit that all 3,200 people who have ever come through these doors have created. That is your creation. And you should be proud as hell about it. Today is our ten years. We've done a lot of great things in that time... over the next ten years we're going to do even more great things. We've tried things that worked.. we've tried some things that didn't. We experiment, we tweak, we refine. We cut when it doesn't work, and try new things. Recent additions to our unit and our hierarchy are already on their way to making this unit better than it was even just yesterday. You're all on a great ride, and it's going to continue to get better because of all of you. Keep up the great work we've all done over... let me say it again... 10 years of existence. Ooh-rah, eMarines. -Col Penny Commanding Officer 15th MEU (SOC) Realism Unit Member #15M0077 Enlisted 24FEB2008 (3,178 days in service)

  11. Adjustment to Training Requirement

    Attention All Hands, The 15th MEU Realism Unit is a very large time commitment, that much is certain. Since our inception we have stressed weekly team trainings, coupled with bi-monthly squad trainings, monthly platoon training, and the bi-monthly unit operations. That is a lot of time required, all even before any additional duties one might volunteer for or be assigned to. Today we're going to make that slightly easier on everyone. Effective immediately we are removing two of those required team trainings. This will leave the requirement at two team trainings, two squad trainings, a platoon training, and two operations per month. We do still want everyone to be here at least once a week, however, to promote activity within the unit and team unity, so the required training level of the week will be established by the unit. The chart below should help illustrate this for all sections: Week 1 ACE: Element (those detachments consisting of only one Element will train as a whole) Infantry: Fire Team/Team/Mortar Squad Titan/Gator: Vehicle Force Recon: Team LED: Team Week 2 ACE: Detachment (those detachments consisting of only one Element will train as a whole) Infantry: Squad/Mortar Section Titan/Gator: Section Force Recon: Team (or platoon. As desired) LED: Squad Week 3 ACE: Element Infantry: Fire Team/Team/Mortar Squad Titan/Gator: Vehicle Force Recon: Team LED: Team Week 4 ACE: Detachment (those detachments consisting of only one Element will train as a whole) Infantry: Squad/Mortar Section Titan/Gator: Section Force Recon: Team (or platoon. As desired) LED: Squad The above chart represents only the breakdown for team and squad training. Platoon training for each element must be held in addition at some point in the month at the discretion of the Platoon Commander. Additional changes will be coming in two weeks for Weapons Platoon, who at this time still requires additional bi-monthly section training. Any questions may be referred up your chain of command. -Col Penny MEU CO

    Attention All Hands, I would very quickly like to announce a new addition to Command Staff: Captain D. A. Thomas will be joining us on Command Staff, bringing his level-headedness, knowledge, and experience. We're very pleased to have him joining us. -Col Penny MEU CO
