  1. Since purchasing a Reverb G2, I have found myself thinking of redesigning my cockpit to be more VR friendly. I purchased a set of Thrustmaster MFDs and I am thinking of using a add-on keypad for a UFCP. Is there software that will allow a windows keypad be used to send control button presses as a usb controller? I could then program the keys to send the 0-9 numbers and other key inputs to DCS. I have seen programs like XPADDER and Joy to Key. However, they make a joystick act like a keyboard. I want to make a keyboard work as joystick buttons. Anyone have any advice? Th
  2. I fly strictly VR (Reverb G2). I also have over 2800 RW flying hours. The only issue I have with the new clouds is that they are for the most part blown out. Turning down the Gamma just darkens the entire scene. Is there a way to lower the intensity or brightness of the clouds? This would give them more depth and contrast. The only jittering I see is when the program is loading. I just close my eyes or remove the headset until DCS is fully loaded. John
  3. Yes, I have a 2070S, which works well. I fly in VR with a Reverb G2 and love it. Since, I am building a new computer (i-10900) I would love to drop a 3080 in it. But, Alas! As you, I will not pay that much money for a GPU when I have one that works fine. John
  4. You must be an engineer or research scientist. That is a very meticulous and exacting procedure, which reminds me of a grad course on research methods that I took. To the OP. I am jealous that you got your hands on a RTX 3080. I have been looking for a 3080 for months. The only place they are in "stock" is eBay. And, my heart will not allow me to pay more for the GPU than the entire rest of the computer.
  5. I am sure I have. I have ten controllers currently attached to operate a simpit. Does this mean that every time I unplug a controller, for whatever reason, it will kill the profiles? John
  6. A big Sierra Hotel and thank you to anyone who had anything to do with creating this mod. It is wonderful. After four attempts I was able to make my first ever trap. ED should thank you too. This airplane got me to buy the Super Carrier.
  7. Disregard! I was able to get it working using the Repair procedure. John
  8. I recently upgraded to 2.7. Today, I was planning on buying the P-51D and Normandy map. However, i noticed the incompatible with Steam note. Since I use a Reverb G2 VR headset, which works through MS Mixed media and Steam, I decided to see if I could fly the TP-51. That would tell me if I could use the P-51D and Normandy map. I could not find the TP-51D in my aircraft list. Nor, does Flaming Cliffs3 show. I looked on Installed tab in the Modules section and neither show available for download. Are they working in 2.7? Or do I have some problem? Thanks,
  9. I started RS Mapper this morning and discovered that it didn't load my profile. When I attempted to load the profile I got an error message. Looking at the profile in Notepad ++ doesn't show any obvious errors. Is there any way to recover this? I have a lot of time invested in the profile. I have attached the file Thanks, John F-16C.RSMapper
  10. My bad, do people still say that? I didn't see the center stick part.

  12. I have had 'ESC' issues with the 'Instant Action'. Searching the forums comes up with other people having the same issue. I have tried clearing the bindings and using default settings. I have tried just using RSMapper and a mix of DCS bindings and RSMapper. Nothing seems to work. In general DCS use, ESC will work for a time without issues, then it will freeze. I don't know why? As I said, the cockpit controls work find in other flight sims. I have only used the F-5 and the F-16 in DCS. I did mange to move to the next level using your advice on using the Mission Planner. Thanks!
  13. Hi, Thanks for replying. Yes, I have waited to the end, when the IP says to use Escape to go to the next lesson. I don't know enough to fiddle with the 'saved games.' However, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
  14. I am new to DCS, but a long time simmer and RW pilot. My problem is that I cannot move past the arrival to Nellis AFB. The Escape key doesn't work. I tried it on three different keyboards. I am on a dedicated computer with a homebuild fighter cockpit. There are seven different controllers; joystick, HOTAS, rudders, and four Leo Bondar I/O cards. They all work on P3D and MSFS. So, I don't think it is a hardware issue. I tried clicking to the next mission. I get an image of Red Flag, but it still opens up to the C-130 landing. As a former real world F-4 driver, I am looki
  15. Thank you! Yes, Toby and I still email every so often. He is doing team acrobatics real time, lucky dog. I will say that this DCS F-16 makes me feel like a 90 day wonder butter bar wandering through the Pentagon. It is a challenge for this old man. I need to catch up with the jet.
