Press "POL 0 n"
n, from 1 to 9, is the number of the waypoint you want to store the new point in
If the point n already has coordinates, azimuth(upper line) and distance(bottom line) from your current position are displayed
If then you Press Enter you access edit mode to change azimuth and distance (usual edit procedure with down arrow to swap the edited flashing line)

Gents please, this thread is not intended to debate.

Mt5_Roie 05-06-2016 07:41 PM

This is why we can't have nice threads. People...this thread is for the changelog. Please don't hijack it with install issues....put that int he bugs subsection.

wolle 05-20-2016 08:03 PM

will we get a changelog for today's (May 20th) DCS 1.5 update, if there are any changes for the Gazelle that came with this update.

Kayos 06-09-2016 11:05 PM

08 June 2016 update looks good. Will we be getting it on Friday patch if there is one?

burnjp5 06-10-2016 01:07 AM

Oh my gawd so excited!

Devrim 06-10-2016 08:37 AM

Thanks a lot for the great changelog, but I think we need more keycommands for Missile Box and Flare Dispenser. :)

Tank you.

Pikey 06-10-2016 09:10 AM

"- added assign-able keys for pilot Intercom"
Is this the enabling of cockpit clicking for the radio switch that governs which radio your PTT is set to? This functionality would be really useful for a comms mod I have.

Hook47 06-10-2016 09:23 AM

AWESOME! Cannot wait to try the SA342L! Excellent work and communication, Polychop! Extraordinarily happy with this purchase!

Manuel_108 06-10-2016 10:31 AM
