fajitas aren't Mexican food, it's just tex with no mex


semp

It was invented by the Mexicans who worked the ranches where I was born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley.   So they are an authentic Tex-Mex creation.  It was born out of necessity to make use of what was not considered the best cut of meat around.   

We are not poor ranch hands working cattle any more.  We can use better/different meat than skirt to make a far superior version of the same "dish" and there's not a thing wrong with doing so.  If you want to make yours with skirt go for it.  I'll do mine with whatever I want to use.   The butchers here in Texas (particularly at H-E-B) make plenty of cuts that are fine for use in fajitas.  Take your pick.

Let me tell you, I grew up six miles north of Reynosa, Mexico and had a Mexican nanny who is like my second mom.   When I talk about what makes good Tex-Mex you can take it to the bank because it is as good as Gospel.

Custom Sounds / Re: New Sick Puppy Sound Pack

Hey Chalenge,  I've been enjoying your sound pack, thanks again for your efforts!  When you again have time to work on it I have a couple suggestions for the F6f-4, should you have the time and interest.  I've both read about, as well as my Dad also spoke about the black powder cartridges that they used to start the Wildcat engines.  As I recall Mitsu had modeled this in his earlier sound pack as well.  My Dad referred to the cartridges as looking like a large shotgun shell.  Also, and I don't know how you would model the sound....my Dad also spoke about how when the Wildcats lifted off you could see the pilot bending down to crank up the landing gear by hand.

 :cheers:

Welcome. I have one recording of an F4F using the shotgun start. One reason I didn't use it is because if you go to an airshow and see the airplanes you will not, in most cases I think, witness a shotgun start. It's the same reason that I didn't change the 262, or 234, and other airplanes for other reasons. If you listen to the F4F you can hear the landing gear being cranked by hand. I could have added the sound of a chain, but in the moment you cannot hear that so it's wasted. I believe I did add it to the Storch, and I16.

Jinx, No. The reason I wanted FMOD in the first place is to encapsulate the sounds so they could not be copied. Publishing the file as you suggest would just reveal those sounds. If you have a particular issue about a sound level you might just report it.

Logs are here under Fortress Europe.

AI bombers shot down 12 Luftwaffe. Not too bad.

Though with only 4 escorts against 21 interceptors they got closer than I thought they would.  ;)

They can be made with any kind of steak that can be cut into strips.
