2- We are well aware of other known item such EOS, CBU-97/105 effectiveness, countermeasure effectiveness, client control of air units in CA, game performance, etc., and they will be addressed as time and resources allow. There really is no need for, "what about..." questions.

Dear all,

As always, we read all feedback and recognize some regrettable issues in the 1.2.5 release. We will do our utmost to address the lack of AFM for the A-10A and the erroneous change in the aircraft activation trigger as fast as possible. We are also investigating the input control manager issue.

Most importantly, DCS 1.2.5 does not currently support WinXP. We will remedy this as fast as we can.

We apologize for the confusion and inconvenience.

Matt

I'm going to bed now, but later on Thursday we plan to release a "hot fix" to 1.2.5 that will include the following:
  • WinXP is supported once again.
  • The A-10A Advanced Flight Model (AFM) is no longer AWOL.
  • The broken UH-1 input file has been repaired.
  • The crash resulting from the broken aircraft activation / deactivation triggers has been addressed.
  • Fixed the periodic green explosions.
There are other items that we have fixed internally (like chaff rejection), but they were not completed in time for this update. These and other items will be part of an update next week.

Matt

Due to some "cryptical issues" reported by the team today, the update will be delayed a bit. We are working to have this hot fix released as fast as we can.

One additional item to the hot fix last week that was not noted:

Chaff has had is Radar Cross Section (RCS) reduced to a value of 10 sq.m to 3 sq.m. This is the same value as was in FC2. Currently, there are three levels of missile chaff rejection.

1. All SARH missiles.
2. All ARH missiles, except AIM-120C.
3. AIM-120C.

Target aspect also determines chaff rejection based on three basic scenarios: head to head, 3-9, and pursuit. In a head to head intercept for example, the missile has maximum chaff rejection.
