  1. You can avoid the thumbing sound by telling Iceman to keep the speed below 400 KTS while circling around the bombing/target area.
  2. I bought zone 5 today but for some reason it dosen't show up in the module manager. I run the stable version and i don't have open beta installed.
  3. I noticed today on my first flight after the update that the sensitivity to input has increased dramatically. The last six months i had i had gotten used to pitch and roll set to 25% ingame. So today i got something of a surprise when pulling back on the stick on takeoff i allmost performed a backflip and i found out that to have the same feedback as before i had to set both to 65 - 70 % Has anybody else noticed ? Im using warthog Hotas stick and throttle GRIZZ
  4. I have the same issues, only in this case rudder and pitch have red exclamation marks, and i remember having the same issues after the last major update.
  5. My CH Fighterstick stopped working after 12 years of use, and since i already had the warthog throttle in use for about a year, i decided to replace My CH with a warthog stick. I will try to describe the difference in handling of those two sticks. The CH is made of sturdy industrial grade plastic, it mowes smooth and comfortably around all four directions with the same soft resistance all the way and has a slightly squishy center. The warthog turned out to be a completely different animal. Made of metal with a rigid center position you had to (compared the CH) use excessive force to move in any direction. My muscle memory built up by years and years of using the CH went right out the window. To use an anology it was like i had replaced a ballpen (CH) with a heavy duty Warthog Meat cleaver. I quickly came to the conclution that i either had to send the warthog back and replace it with another CH stick or to look around and se if it was possible to find a softer spring. A search for a solution via google and youtube led me to Sahaj's website http://warthog-extensions-by-sahaj.com where i found what i was looking for, a softer (green) spring for the warthog, and (to make a long story short) The new spring landed in my mailbox this monday and i replaced it yesterday ..... And what a difference!!! ... The stick now feels more like 50/50 Warthog/CH and thats a compromise that works for me. Cheers GRIZZ
  6. Its out on DCS Open Beta only, it will be available on DCS stable some time later . So if you want to play the Syria map you will have to download/install the Open Beta edition : https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/downloads/world/
  7. We had that problem a short while ago with foggy instruments ... it seems to have mowed to the canopy now.
  8. Have the same problem, allso the instrument lighting is much to weak
  9. KC 130 is now invisible, not only when you fly the Nevada "instant action" training mission. I allso have a homemede mission located on the caucasus map and there the KC130 suddently is invisible as well. The tanker is still visible in F 10 view on both maps though. :huh: PS. On our server its the same problem Cheers GRIZZ
  10. Im not sure if this is a bug but i find it worth mentioning. The problem is that when you turn the knob the channels 1-3 are(more or less) properly alligned with the selector pointer. But the farther you turn it, the more it gets out of alignment so that if you get past Pos. 8 and forward its allmost impossible to se what channel you are on Cheers GRIZZ
  11. I think its a DCS Bug we got after last update (f 16 launch) :(
  12. Engaging autothrottle is a surefire CTD ! hope it will be fixed soon :joystick:
  13. Well thanks for your input guys. I did the sensible thing and uninstalled/ formatted my dedicated DCS drive (500GB SSD) and re-installed everything. And you know what ? It works like a charm :) Cheers GRIZZ
  14. I have built myself a new rig and now i have a strange problem assigning Pitch "JOY_Y" for my F-14 pilot. The collumn "pitch" in Axis commands has a pink tinch to it. I can Clear, and Add JOY-Y to the box again pushing the stick forward and even tune it, but the collumn remains pink and the plane dosen't respond to mowement in game, no problen with Roll though Anyone heard of this strange bug? I have tried un/re-installing but the bug remains. I have found a workaround assigning JOY_Y to "Default" setting but that only works until i restart the game, then ill have to assign it to Default once more. What really mystifies me is that in my Viggen, F-5E and SU-33 i have no Pink problem at all with JOY_Y. Thanks in advance GRIZZ
  15. Since the bug has no impact on how the wings work i will just ignore that they are dark and soldier on until ED (hopefully soon) fixes it :joystick: :pilotfly: :thumbup:
  16. You sir are a genius !! i have looked all over the forum for the correct detent settings on the Warthog … your solution was the best, most simple and effective solution of them all Kudos !!
  17. To be honest i am a bit flabbergasted myself :D:music_whistling:
  18. As i mentioned in my tread starter its a 240GB SSD exclusively for DCS/Eagle Dynamics. If not for 3 Maps and 8 modules 42GB would not have been a big deal but sooner or later additional updates and new modules would choke up the drive for good. So i went to my local hardware store and got myself a 480GB SSD by Gigabyte (Kingston was sold out) and am now transferring the whole Caboodle, hoping that i won't have to by a 1T for at least another year "Fingers crossed":doh::lookaround:
  19. OK … So it looks like i will have to get myself a bigger HD, i hope 500GB will be enough fore a while, it looks like my local hardware store is running a sale on 500GB Kingston and Gigabyte SSD's i think i will get me one of those. Cheers GRIZZ
  20. Running DCS updater to install today, being quite sure to have enough room on my dedicated DCS 240GB SSD with 39GB to spare. Suddenly i get informed that there is not enough room on my disk because the update needs 42GB of disk space!!!?….. Does that mean that DCS discreetly informs me that 240GB no longer is enough and that i now have to either remove installed modules or get myself a 500GB SSD just to get enough space for coming updates? Could there be something wrong with my installation or is it totally normal to be prepared for 500GB of content ? Thanks in advance GRIZZ
  21. According to what i have learned from watching and listening to different youtube videos and podcasts the RIO (In this case Jester) should deal with almost all ATC communication on takeoff, approach, and landing at airbases and Carriers. Does Heatblur have plans to implement this in some way or should we wait until DCS has improved the coms menu. Thanks in advance GRIZZ
  22. Now the Viper is on pre-sale, can i use the 12$ bonus i have saved up on my bonus account to partially pay for the module ?:joystick:
