  1. yes, you are right, I will change the topic title again. I temporarily was under the impression that the current mode would affect the problem...
  2. In this video you can see: 1. HUD is active SOI 2. TDC depress over that airfield 3. symbology switches to CCRP (AUTO) 4. I reaffirm CCIP in the stores 5. HUD and TGP switch to a moving target in 3 NM distance. It's the CCIP. I recorded cropped in 1080 resolution, as DCS is running on 4k and recording the whole screen would have caused a slideshow and a cockpit barely readable...
  3. Thanks for the video man. As I can see you do designate a selected waypoint/mark point. Try that again without a point, only with a TDC designation.

I recorded cropped in 1080 resolution, as DCS is running on 4k and recording the whole screen would have caused a slideshow and a cockpit barely readable... The track is rather lengthy... CCIPTGP.trk I can't find this in the manual: 1. Is the delivery mode supposed to switch from CCIP to CCRP automatically upon designating a point? 2. When the HUD symbology switches to AUTO, there is still the CCIP program displayed in the stores 3. Reaffirming the CCIP mode in the stores drops the designated target, instead HUD, HSI and TGP are apparently following the CCIP solution. Is this intended?
  5. Even then the HUD symbology automatically enters AUTO mode (CCRP). Btw it remains CCIP in the storage program of course. Whenever I did that (switching back to CCIP by re-confirming CCIP mode in the storage program, the designated point gets lost and HUD, the target symbol in the HSI and the TGP jump elsewhere. The TGP actually remains on my desired target in case it wasn't SOI the moment I reaffirm CCIP, yet it shows data of some other location and therefore a wrong distance. Edit: I just noted it works fine when I first designate my target, THEN activate A-G mode. If the A-G mode is active already while designating, the TGP returns into snowplow when I reaffirm CCIP. While having the CCIP cancelled for AUTO is mentioned on page 216, I have yet to find a confirmation that the TGP, HSI and HUD follow the CCIP impact cross.
  6. As far as I understand the manuals, the IFA in the F/A-18 is not to be confused with the last resort In-flight-alignments you are mentioning. I also at first hesitated to accept IFA as the regular in flight regime for the Hornet's INS at first, as in my civil aviation life I know an in-flight alignment to be the least desired. Yet it seems in the Hornet the IFA is just an unlucky wording, in fact meaning an in-flight update. So the IFA dial position doesn't do an In-flight-alignment the way you intend to avoid, but essentially only presents the normal operating mode of your INS after doing the GND or CV alignment. You then make use of the HSI settings to specify, how the in-flight updating is processed.
  7. Currently I am training A/G weapons delivery. As I intended to use CCIP, I wanted to designate an aim point, so a mark along the heading tape can guide me towards the correct azimuth before diving into the target below the HUD frame. Unfortunately the moment I press TDC, CCIP gets switched to AUTO.
  8. Dang I should've downloaded it right away. I hope you don't have to change the intro music. It was perfect. Btw I'd be willing to pay 20% more if you get the heavy g breathing from the trailer into the game.
  9. Don't worry. Use a credit card. The bank will pay for it. Don't care what might happen thereafter. Even if those bank clerks try to call you 24/7. It doesn't matter. You are in your new cockpit and they are not.
  10. Honestly I have no idea why people feel entitled to suggest business models at all to a running franchise. It's not that a company running and expanding successfully since how long (2 decades?) could reasonably suspected to be lacking smart heads. They will certainly have enough folks aboard to keep their economic health in control, assumably including access to a cabinets full of financial viability studies and periodic budget reports. Then there come some dudes in the internet, offering them good ideas and advice. Really? It happens quite frequently of course. This is not a DCS-specific phenomenon. I guess it's just the internet. Everybody and their grandma can vent their "brilliant ideas" to the waiting audience.
  11. Just checked my original box, copyright 1999, 2000. I didn't have internet back then
  12. Meanwhile I had this happen on 2 other occasions. It's always in the end of my missions, where a track would be rather lengthy. I think it always happened after working with TGP and radar, switching between these two during weapon employments. Will keep an eye on that so that it might become reproducable...
  13. I repeated the test with a F/A-18 as opponent. Enemy showed up on the RWR at 73 NM Enemy appeared on my radar around 40 NM, could be locked on. At 23 NM enemy locked me and insta-launched an AMRAAM...
