  1. @BIGNEWYAvailable in game : in VR as well? Hi Chuck First and foremost I really want to thank you so much for all your guides, they are amazing!!! That has been the only way I start learning a new module!!! I found a (very small) mistake in the hornet guide.. On the HUD description page (32), you mark the bank angle tick marks as 0-5-10-30-45 degrees but it is rather 0-5-15-30-45 if I am not mistaken? Thanks again!! JEFX
  2. Thanks guys for all the informative answers! I will continue checking but I am very tempted...
  3. Hi all. Old timer in DCS here, but never in VR. I have a couple questions for you guys specialists of all things VR :-) 1) I am considering jumping in and perhaps buying the G2, is it the best choice? 2) Any drawbacks if I have to wear glasses? 3) I have quite a good processor (i9 9900) and a pretty good GPU (GTX 1080 FTW2 icx), is it going to work well? thanks!
  4. wow thanks guys, what a quick and informative bunch of answers!!! I havent changed my comp in 10 years (besides the Gr. Card) and now I just updated to an i9 9900K !
  5. Thanks Devrim, sounds logical. There are some files I know less that I wonder...
  6. Hi! Sorry I tried to find the answer with the search but didnt get the Full answer… I just installed DCS on a new computer (fresh install, everything good). I want to copy now my SAVED GAMES files from the old computer to the new in order to get my old key bindings etc… I know that the content of the config/input folder is where the peripherals (HOTAS) configurations are stored (and I am aware of the numbering/naming thing that one has to be careful with in order for Windows to recognize the right device). But!: I am not so sure about all the rest of the SAVED GAMES/DCSopenbeta fold
  7. Bignewy, you have great patience and diplomacy! As many people (with a positive attitude) said, DCS is evolving and sometimes it has some hiccups, but it is still a blast to play and there are plenty of great modules! And lets not forget that the core thing, DCS, IS free... I have been playing sims for 25 years now and I would never have thought that one day we could get where we are now!!!! And it gets better and better every year. Keep up the great work and thanks so much for keeping us informed all the time (despite the negativity...) JEFX
  8. I rarely take position in such kind of debate, since a new WWII map can please some where a new JDAM pleases others, but I have to agree that WEATHER in general (and for all genre, era, epoch or technology) is capital in a flight sim... I fly myself a modest Cessna and Weather is THE most important factor in aviation... At least we have better seasons than in the original LOMAC :-) But, sincerely, a really detailed weather system, clouds, mist, fog (the actual fog is ridiculous) clouds that dont make layered pancakes on the mountain sides, turbulence, updrafts, burble, windshear, etc
  9. oups, ok I get it, sorry, wrong forum
  10. Hey everyone, what is your impression of the Channel map? I personally find it very beautiful but my frame rates are pretty bad (much worse than Caucasus or PG)
  11. I can say that it was veeery long.. but it finished a few minutes ago (took 3 hours), I am loading the new terrain right now!
  12. yes this is the website that I use to test my connexion (and it is around 430 Mbps!)
  13. BIGNEWY, mys speed as requested : I live in Montreal Canada and I am downloading at 300 Kb/s ...I have (usually) a very fast connexion with the new protocol with 400 Mbps...:-( it is taking forever...
  14. More time at home means a lot of readjustments, but it also means more time to play DCS :smilewink: Recently I decided to go back to our beloved Hog... I had never played TEW… Started a few days ago. Another great campaign again from the great BD!! This morning I played TEW mission 4 and I had a blast!!! no real spoilers below... On the last assignment, Axeman, (and there are several!) it got pretty nasty… with the help of my wingman we did hit almost everything asked for by the JTAC (inputting coordinates, looking for smoke markers, S.A.-ing east-west passes…). Suddenly, my
  15. Great advice! SA is paramount. Cross checking between what you see outside and what you see on your displays is so important. One of the advices that I saw that helped me the most was (if I recall well) from Gerry Abbott : put your TAD display in EX 1 (zoomed one level) because then it always stays North UP. It is so much easier when trying to check where things are both on the field and in the air, especially while doing orbits and other moves!!! Then, using the TGP, an appropriate orbit pattern around the battlefield, markpoints, smoke, and of course your eyes, you can crosscheck
  16. hey Guys­.. give him a break... not nice... This is certainly THE most finished product in DCS with tons of systems to learn and an 600+ pages manual... his question is understandable... @FireManDan there are tons of great tutorials and advice on flying and operating the A-10C out there. First I would start with the specific A-10C MODULE SPECIFIC TUTORALS section in our Forum Here. Besides the (imposing) flight manual from ED, I strongly suggest that you start with Chuck's guide, he makes the best concise and easy to understand yet complete guides for most aircraft in DCS. Here i
  17. Hey guys, there is a new podcast out there just started yesterday called The Afterburn Podcast (by former F-16 pilot John 'RAIN' Waters) hosted on Warbird Radio.com and the first episode is an AMAZING A-10 story (2017). Here is a link to listen to it and the story really starts at around 25'00. It is really a harrowing and epic story. Wow!
  18. Even if the Hog is a 'RTFM' kind of module ???? relearning (or learning) it with Chuck's guide is so easy and fun! I really suggest to complete that with LOBO's fantastic checklist! Here: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/fr/files/172905/
  19. Wow Lobo, 8 years after the original launch and your Checlists are still the best and absolute most useful there is out there!!!!! I had let go of the A-10C for many years and more recently, because I was getting sick of having new uncompleted systems on the Hornet every 2 weeks and also because of that unexpected Christmas gift of this beautiful new cockpit for our good old Hog, I went back to it with great pleasure. The thing is: 10 years ago, despite being an experienced sim user since the days of Falcon 4.0, I was not used to real pilots procedures and 'way of thinking'... Since the
  20. Exact same here... The A-10C feels so much more like a finished and complete module! It is a joy to relearn it in your new guide: it is awesome!!! Thanks so much!
  21. Can we get a word from Matt about this please? I am glad to see that I am not alone here... I have been begging for this for 10 years! Me too I would really appreciate if Matt or someone from ED could just tell us what is ED's position about this long time missing feature!!!
  22. Hi Radial 9. I felt compelled to share some thoughts with you after reading your initial post. I can see that you are somebody who does things thoroughly and it is great. But as hansangb pointed out, you dont have to 'play' all modules to the same depth... One could study (as you said and you are right about the A-10C manual, it is one of the best) one module in depth and play around with another for some time... I personally own about every module in DCS (excluding WWII stuff) and I have been playing it since LOMAC 2003! Even before that, the great manual and training missions that cam
  23. OK did some homework here... opened the mission (M13) in the ME and found that the coordinates given in the briefing for BAD (Rho 9 NM and Theta 037 with a Delta altitude of -761') apply to WP 5 as the IP (and not 9 as briefed). Actually, in the tortuous (and fun) valley NOE flying there are probably missing waypoints because between WP 3 and WP 4 there are several turns, among which 2 of them are really big... Then flew the mission and it worked with the JTAC and the laser designation of the LGB. I got killed right after but that is another story and will try again later...:D
