  1. UPDATE- Spoke with Thrustmaster, I am using WinZip for my downloads. I opened it directly from the program instead of unzipping in into a file. That meant the .exe program ran without the numbers. Hopefully this fixes the issue. If not, it goes back for repair.
  2. That would make the most sense.... I calibrated on old firmware. I found the link on an ED fourm from 3 years ago. I also read the manual and it mentions nothing about calibration or firmware, but would explain the issue. To be fair, the Thrustmaster website was down for a majority of the day. I couldn't access the support section, much less download the target software. Does this mean my stick is toast?? Is there anyway to reset it? I have tried several times to reset to default via windows, but nothing.
  3. I purchased a TM Warthog stick last month. Ran the calibration tool via windows, and every axis was messed up afterwards. I couldn't get the stick to respond at all appropriate (up would give you left rudder, pitch you down, etc). Rescanned all devices on DCS, still had the issue. I returned it thinking it was defective. Now, I just ran the TM Calibration Tool 1.13, and the same thing. The stick is unusable. I have tried every USB port, reset the joystick to default, attempted to do a windows calibration, tired to make something work via the Target software. Nothing. Please help. This is incredibly frustrating. I do not feel it is a hardware issue, but rather a software issue. Any ideas?
  4. Does anyone have a sight that sells Aces II or similar seats? I thought were a few that offered CNC kits you assembled. Thanks in advance.
  5. So would you recommend a 1000 watt psu or an 850??
  6. Thanks man.... Time to break out the check book again!
  7. After nearly a year, I am buying an RTX3080. I am wondering if I need a new PSU I built my PC about a year ago. Ryzen 3800X 32GB Ram RTX3060TI 2 TB SSD A few powered USB's cards for peripherals. I am currently running an EVGA Bronze 750W PSU. I have never had issue with it. Do I need to upgrade? Thanks for your time. I look forward to playing 4K and in the distant future VR (I did play VR with my 3060ti, it just wasnt powerful enough) Please help.
  8. Purchased from original owner. 3 way switch (pictured) broke off. Winwing sent him a replacement switch. With a 2 month old, I simply don't have time to replace. $100 shipped to your door ( USA,Lower 48). These are retailing new for $250 new with $45 shipping. If you have the time, this is a steal. Please see my facebook posting for more pictures. Comes in original packaging (minus a cheap piece of 2 sided tape and manual (you can find the manual on WinWing's website. I am more partial to the Viper, so haven't gotten much use from it. I accept PayPal for protection of all parties. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/416206550121427/
  9. Thanks for taking the time. Was able to finally break out my CM2 Mongoose Throttle by Virpil (purchased 2nd hand, good condition, good price). Have an odd controller bug I hope someone may have the answer to. The Throttle has 6 mode switches that allow you to program up to 30 commands to the 6 push buttons on the throttle. I decided to start simple and map an FC3 F15 to see if everything worked. While my commands do work (i.e.- I made mode switch 2 a modifier, which allowed me to map 6 different commands to the same buttons, I now notice that random things (such as the F2 external view) only work if I go back to mode switch 1 (which is not a modifier). Would changing this to a switch help? I am sure there is a work-around, but the hours of Youtube Tutorials and reading manuals don't seem to cover this particular issue. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks for your time, happy flying everyone.
  10. Love my new MFD's, but they are a bit bright. I downloaded the latest drivers, and the TARGET software. Whenever I try to select the LED brightness, the TARGET software crashes... Any ideas on how to fix?
  11. I am running an X56 Hotas, and have noticed that there are some controls that you can't assign either the joystick or throttle (Look Down At Cargo, Toggle Aiming Axis, ETC). Anyone else run into this issue or know of a solution? It allows you to keybind, but nothing else. Further, what function (if any) does the autopilot have (other than activating). I download CAPS X56 profile, and 3 buttons are dedicated to the autopilot (altitude hold, orbit, straight line). The ONLY autopilot button I am able to get working is the autopilot on/off when operating from a different position. What am I doing wrong?
  12. I am looking to replicate the F16 that my father flew back in the service. Although not historically accurate (block 30), I think it would be awesome. He flew vipers in Misawa, Japan in the mid to late 80's in the 14TFS. This was back when the tail was "MJ", not WW. I also have his tail number and crew chief. Attached are pictures I have of the model given to him after his fini flight. I don't think it would be terribly difficult to do, but well beyond my knowledge. I am also willing to pay to have this done if need be. http://imgur.com/gallery/vWKyTlT

  14. Thanks for posting. Was literally about to purchase from them today! No thanks.
  15. Hi all, new to DCS, been playing about 3 months now. I want to make the jump to VR, but I have heard mixed opinions regarding what minimum specs you need. I understand that DCS isn't optimized, and VR is very resource intensive. My expectations would be medium settings (I am currently have Ultra settings now). I built my PC about 2 months ago soley to play DCS/ MSFS2020. My PC Ryzen 7 3800X (8 core, 3.9ghz core clock, 4.5 turbo clock) 32 GB DDR4 Ram (Think it is around the 3200 speed) (Also thinking of upgrading to 64gb) 3060TI (8GB) 750W PSU 1 TB SSD (Once again, DCS is quickly filling it up, so I am probably going to get another Acer 32in Curved monitor (144hz refresh rate) Could I get a decent experience out of DCS in VR? If so, what VR systems do you recommend? Thanks in advance!
  16. Hi all! I have gotten to the point in which I feel confident enough to fly the F15C in combat scenarios. It is taken a lot of trial and errors, but I am now able to take off, land (both VFR and ILS), refuel, and engage hostiles. **I am not god's gift to DCS, but feel I can begin (albeit poorly) learning my way through campaigns) It has taken literally hours of practice, reading, etc. However, now that I have downloaded the F15C Red Flag Campaign, I have AI wing men, and while I kinda understand the functions, I can not for the life of me find any resources explaining what each command does. Does anyone have a link/video that can help me out? Thanks for your time. PS- Also have the Viper/F18/F5 that I am slowly learning as well!
  17. I was just binding controls the the F15 yesterday for 3+ hours (figuring out what works). Trim worked just fine. Conversely, I just purchased my first full fidelity model and the camera controls are horrific.
  18. Hi all, Build a PC for playing DCS, and purchased FC3 while on sale to "cut my teeth" into. Have been slowly building my knowledge, skill, etc. I finally purchased my first full fidelity model (F5 Tiger), but the camera controls are terrible. I can only use the hat button on my joystick to move my head. I loved the fact that I could right click the mouse to move my view, mouse wheel to zoom in/out (both internally and externally). I also have a X52 HOTAS that has a knob on the throttle that I could use to zoom. Now, I can't get the slider to recognize what-so-ever, and I can't change the mouse settings to the way they were before. Any suggestions? I also have a TrackIR in the mail that will certainly help, but would love to begin flying, doing ILS approaches, etc... Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  19. All, just spent a little north of 2k building a rig to play DCS. I am looking for a HOTAS and ran into a new Thrustmaster 16000m for $140 new. Is there anything seriously wrong with this stick? Should I pull the trigger? I understand it isn't a Warthog, but that isn't in the budget. Thanks for your help!
  20. Hello all, I FINALLY decided to go for it, and build a PC dedicated to DCS World and Flight SIm 2020. I have watched thousands of hours of youtube (lol) and think I have something that will play DCS better than a 3 year old laptop w/ a 2GB graphics cards. SetUp AMD Ryzen 7 3800K (8 Cores) 32 GB RAM (DDR-4, 3200 CL16) Crucial MX500 1TB SSD RTX 3060TI (8GB) EVGA 600W Power Supply Acer 31.5 Inch Curved Gaming Monitor (2560x1440) Monitor Still Need Joystick/Hotas set up (what do you guys recommend?) The wife has expressed I am at the end of the budget (for now), so a WartHog HOTAS is a no go) It appears that most that have provided me feedback have stated that if you don't have TrackIR, or something like it, you will only be frustrated... Is this correct? Thanks for all your time and input, I look forward on being target practice for many of you in the near future!
