  1. Absolutely love the Hawk. Thank you for such and amazing module, I love the hawk as I do DCS with all the bugs, as is. The thing is, I am a software engineer and a programmer so I know difficulties you face every day. Every time I find a bug, I ask myself if I could do a better job myself. The answer is, basically that you, DCS coding guys and module coding guys are semi-gods in what you can do with ones and zeros. Thank you again for all your hard work.
  2. Agreed. The other night I setup a quick mission hunting 2 "Doras" with Su-33. I got them every time. There was probably some imbalance... :o) On a more serious note, DCS is fun, a bit of approximation is fine (anyone remembers Kh-29 on Su-27 Flanker in Flanker 1.2?) Typhoon module would not be limited to flying head to head with Mig-29. It would simply be a fun to fly, or watch in AI action. My 2 cents.
  3. Hello, This is so super awesome.
  4. Ета очен хорошо работает в 2.5. Хорошой мод. Спосиба.
  5. This project looks super awesome. Patiently waiting to fly Komet. :o)

    Totally awesome! This looks beyond amazing. A-4 with a hump is my most favourite plane of all times. This work is awesome. Glad I found this thread.

    Set own theme?

    Does this method work in DCS 1.5.8 or 2.5.2? I tried but no success... I cannot get icon to display in the main sim window.
  8. Hi, just in case someone finds this thread in the future. In DCS there is a native editing of tracks. Once you record and save the track, you can replay it. If you change views during replay, the "new views" are "remembered". All one needs to do is either save, or save as new track file. Hope this helps.
  9. God bless you, now I have my first ever Flanker, patched up to 1.5.1 running beautifully in Win 10 x64 with Joystick and sound! :o)
  10. This mod looks seriously impressive. Regards, Mimes
  11. Did that on TrakcIR 3 with the latest software, still not working on Flaming Cliffs 2. Black Shark and other sims are OK.
  12. If you are looking at getting a second had unit of TrackIR, TrackIR 3 Pro does not seem to work in Flaming Cliffs 2. Regards, Mimes
  13. Have the same problem - Sidewinder on gameport, Win XP Pro. It is OK on Flanker 2, 2.5, all LOMAC versions, Flaming Cliffs 1 and Black Shark. Does not work on Flaming Cliffs 2. TrackIR 3 Pro with Vector Activation also does not work on Flaming Cliffs 2, but works on LOMAC and Black Shark. It has the latest software and updated game profiles. It looks very much like Flaming Cliffs 2 related. Regards, Mimes
  14. Hello there, Auran (Trainz) is a prime example of a dev group who grab the gamers support by clever carots rather than ugly sticks. Thumbs up for Auran. I have bought Flaming Cliffs, installed it, got my system buggerised by StarForce, reformatted HDD, did a fresh install of OS, an will not touch ED product again, unless I am paying for fetures, not viruses on the CD. Thumbs down for Flaming Cliffs. Pitty, Flanker series was my all times favourite piece of software. Not any more. Over & out, Mimes P.S.: Starforce is a malware, just like Sony's rootkit.
  15. Hello there, Got my Track IR Pro and Flaming Cliffs CD 2 days apart. Christmas came all at once. After the first 5 minutes with Track IR I failed to understand how on earth did I survive without it since 1994!!! Flaming Cliffs is amazing. But the CD makes me, bit by bit, feel like a robber. When I start the game, this big bright Orange Blob comes up and says: "Yo have probably stolen this software, let me check!" I normally say: "No, I have supported ED since day 1", (Good'oll SSI days). But the orange blob has a mind of its own and refuses to believe me. It kinda made me to reach for LOMAC 1.02. So that is what I am flying (and Flanker 2) after an evening of trying to convince the Orange Blob that I am not thief. I am pretty sure Sir Dzugashvilli would be proud of the Blob. :o)
  16. Hello there, Is Flaming Cliffs released? Reading some posts indicates it is. Does it need to be activated? If no, where is it available? I have friends in Moscow so I can get Russina release - will it update Lomac bought in Australia? Thanks for your help.
  17. Wow. You're seeing a whole team of specialists for your paranoia, aren't you? :) Stormin, you may be wrong on this one, the doode may be right. To minimise the losses to "piracy" a solid protection is used to prevent casual copying. Flaming Cliffs without SF will be available in Bangkok in no time for US$5 or so. Sales will probably be lost due to activation issue. The bloodsuckers from StarForce will collect their cut one way or the other. You may have experience or even education in IT area. However unless you are a psychiatrist and have properly examined Bet, it would be appreciated if you could refrain yourself from "diagnosing" people as mentally ill just because they voiced their opinion. I am dissapointed to read such a comment from a person of your calibre. :(
  18. And I am happy to pay 100 Australian Pessos for it. I just can't buy a game or an add-on unless I can install and play when I want even after game is no longer supported/"activation available". I still play, from time to time, Flanker 1.5 and enjoy it very much.
  19. It is humanly impossible to agree more witht the above statement! DC - bring it on!!!
  20. Hello there, Not that long ago I have installed Falcon 4 on my PC and tested some of the excellent patches F4 community brought to us. Microprose is no longer, but that did not matter because I did not have to activate Falcon 4 after an install. My question is: Will I be able to, say in 4 years from now, sell my current PC, buy a new one, install Flaming Cliffs and play? What if StarForce dudes go broke (hope they do), and I can't activate the install of Flaming Cliffs? P.S. I am a programmer, amongst other things, running his own small IT business, so I symphatise with ED when it comes to protection of their hard work.
  21. Thanks heaps for your help, Decision has been made - I am going in!!! (like that game... :D ) And also true, official Website was the first thing I looked up and re info on it is pure rubbish as to who will be there with what planes. Thanks again for your help,
  22. Hello there, Just wandering - Avalon Australia 15-20 March this year. Are there going to be any Russian jets on display - flight displays? If not, any likely western jets, like F-16, F/A-18? Just making my mind up wether to go or not. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
  23. Yes, Flaming Cliffs need a copy protection to prevent casual copying. No, the last thing Flaming Cliffs needs is a copy protection which makes the life of legitimate users misery.
  24. Hi there, Just my 2 cents worth: I have bought every release of Flanker in lots of 2 just to support it. I played lomac the day I bought from a backed-up CD to protect my original from scratches etc. I have bought every release of Half Life except Half Life 2. Moral of the story: Basic protection (e.g. SafeDisk, SecuRom) prevent casual copying. ie John will not be able to get a copy to his mate Jim. That is OK. No copy protection has ever stopped game being copied and sold illegaly. However, legitimate users suffer due to countless issues with these "heavy duty" protections. There are masses of people out there who support and buy good software not because they can't get a free copy, but because developers deserve their support. HL2 is a good game, but I will never buy it, just out of principle. (Despite the fact that I bought every Half Life release before.) Everyone knows what dance one must go through to get to play HL2 with a legitimate CD. What next - before each game session one will have to log onto the dev server to request permission to play the game and one's credit card will be debited by x dollars, and if you happen not to be at home you won't be allowed to play? I live and breathe Flanker series, and each time I upgraded my PC it was to run Flanker better. Despite this, I will cease to support Flanker series when the developer goes from a reasonable protection to prevent casual copying to using a protection "from hell" which makes the life of legit buyers a misery yet does not stop the bad guys selling illegal copies of the software.
