Default Birds of Prey - The Widowmaker

From reading different threads on the forum, It seems that I am not the only one out here having relationship problems due to heavy addiction to this magnificent game.

This thread is meant to be a place to discuss strategics, maneuvers and tactics to keep flying in domestic peace

Please be free to join the thread and post your experiences

Hasn't happened to me yet, but then again, I haven't gotten my joystick and Tracking IR yet!! Once that happens, I'm screwed!

The easiest and best option is also the simplest one. Get the missus in to playing BoP.

Well I ended up getting myself a dirty great big entertainment laptop so I can play and socialise at same time. I got il2 1946 from steam. Going to get Wings Of Prey next.
I also got Wings Of Glory for iPhone to get some aerial combat going. Wish the iPhone had proper controls though.

I am very short on time now to get online with ps3. Usually a couple hours before sleep

Great Thread KAV I almost feel as if you are calling me out on this one !!!! could'nt resist posting on this one !! Sadly though it's to late for me I have no advice except that if you suspect ur wife is pissed unplug it and take it to work with u and everywhere NEVER leave it out of ur site ! All I have left are the wonderful memories of this beautiful game and the great friends I made. Sadly as of late I have degressed into slobbering,raging,alcholic who fights with his boss,family,friends and anybody else who wants to piss me off by saying hi. That game was one of my few releases. Anyway I think my Succubus (wife) has realized she has made a grave mistake. Before she went all .. As Chowbird called it "Lorena Bobitt" on my PS3 she had all the freedom in the world to do whatever she wanted with her friends and now after several "severe" verbal arguments I tell her ... Hey I gotta be n Hell so do you .... You ain't gonna go anywhere B!#*ch. So I think she may just be getting me another one soon ......... Stay tuned.......

Problem:
Lack of hardware
Trash-TV steels my time from BoP. Just this second i had to give up on a CTA match with Gilly where we were in the lead, reason:
The Missus favours amongst others Desperate housewifes

Her solution:
Buy another TV-set and PS3 and install it upstairs.
Wish I had the money for it.

My solution:
Hey honey I love you so much, heres a ticket to "somewhere" I think you deserve a vacation.
Shes of tomorrow and back sunday.
Additional:
Hey Mum, wanna spend some quality time with your grandkids ?
Are you sure, well what about having them from friday on ?

Result:
Me flying whenever I want to the next couple of evenings and nights

Kav don't get ps3 and tv upstairs, that's what I did and the wife moaned non stop about me being anti social. I must admit 5 hours I'm bedroom most nights she had a point. Small LCD in same room be better solution trust me. I saw on amazon some 7" lcd designed for games machines. It's small but a good solution to play while the wife watches tv

Desperate housewives calls for desperate measures!

Thanks wookie for the advice. I wont buy another set even if I would get the money for it. Bet I had stayed upstairs forever

Knowing my wife, she wont settle for an 7"

LOL well 7" pretty puny.

Another option could be some of those video eyewear on eBay. I bought a set last year for about £100 and they simulate 80" screen. 640 x 480 resolution so not exactly high def but they are ok for a couple hours here or there. Only problem is you look like Geordie laforge from star trek. That and fact may as well be in another room with the way they cut you off from reality
