  4. Please report it on our Discord with some more information such as - What time was your flight? Which server?
  5. We are adding to the red carrier group also the Stennis so you can spawn in if you don't have the Super Carrier. I suggest to join our Discord for faster responses and discussions - https://discord.gg/Q5VQnhA
  6. You can basically recapture with convoys from red bases to blue bases. If there are any questions, it's best to join our Discord for faster responses and discussions - https://discord.gg/Q5VQnhA
  7. Once there's a foothold, you can start dispatching convoys to near by field bases (ALGs) and capture them. Then you can takeoff from those bases and attack deeper airbases and factories of the German army and Luftwaffe
  8. If you see any information that is missing/wrong, please update in our Discord wiki channel.
  9. Quigon you can always checkout the wiki for the latest info on each scenario - http://wiki.buddyspike.net/
  10. You are probably right TinMan. My Youtube skills are somewhat to be sharpened before a video goes up We do have a great wiki that is being maintained by some of our community and managed by Thorax, I can recommend it - http://wiki.buddyspike.net/
  11. I'm not using any of the above, not for stats and not for the online map.
  12. BF servers Used modules - lua socket, lua mysql and linked 3rd party applications. Script Function: What you are adding to the mission - Many very useful scripts, I believe ED already has them :) Script Tool: MIST - cause it's awesome and helps shorten scripting for DCS. Basically when we started BF, MOOSE was not created yet, fightcontrol did a great job by the looks of it and it's probably very necessary for mission designers. CTLD - also cause it's awesome, compliments to the necessary unit transport that is missing by ED. Most of the scripts we use have been created to be able to make a persistent campaign, statistics and many features that were necessary to be able to run a campaign. Note that some of the scripts are in place because we had to overcome issues with DCS stability, for example limiting CA control of units because of issues of the past with moving units and various crashes, or working around high load of units on the map. The bottom line is that some of the stuff we got, is there to improve the current multiplayer experience, and I very much hope we can let it go soon with ED developing more towards multiplayer. I really like EDs new approach to handling bugs and working further more with the server owners/admins, it's important for this precious community.
  13. Here are some updates for those who are not in our Discord - We currently have these scenarios running - Persian Gulf - Modern Caucasus - Modern Caucasus - 80s Nevada - 60s (Cold War) Normandy - WWII Each scenario has it's own spectrum of activities, objectives and ongoing persistent dynamic PvP. Here are some of the changes/features that have been going into the different scenarios - New objective Repair mechanics - Objectives no longer have an automated repair, repairing requires a repair compound and can be eliminated at any time to stop the objectives from repairing. Commander commands - Commander who are selected by voting can have additional options to command the on going scenario - setting coalition objectives, spawning awacs, tankers, cap, attackers, helos, reinforcements and more... Commanders can control the assets locations along with the newly carrier groups to allow great naval ops. Persistent Naval Ops - With the new Super Carriers included in BF, we have added persistence of the carrier group locations between server restarts, so if the commanders have moved the carrier groups to any location, it will be there after the server restarts. EWR markings - Only available in the Cold War and WWII scenarios, Early Warning identifications are presented as F10 map markings. Reinforcement Balancing - In times when the scenario favors one coalition specifically, reinforcements are in place for every objective to allow balancing. Statistics - The statistics pages in our gadget (http://gadget.buddyspike.net) have been updated, each scenario includes statistics for each round which is split by a monthly tour, you can see statistics for each coalition and more information including Logistics runners stats and Ace Factor stat which is calculated on every kill. This is just the tip of the iceberg, you are welcome to join the scenarios and experience the live fights. Cu in the skies! Buddyspike
  14. Hey QuiGon, Currently only PG has the Tacview saved. Later on we will add the rest of the servers. Stay tuned in the Discord updates
  15. This is also happening on BF servers, every few hours the server crashes with the same crash log seen here.

  16. It runs the latest OB release. BF Normandy has been updated - 1. It now includes the P47. 2. All airplanes are now available to takeoff from captured airbases. 3. defenses (zu23s) are removed and only WWII units are now available. 4. Tanks have been removed by APCs. Example of how it looks can be seen here -
  17. Sounds really nice, should solve many issues mission designers and scripting in DCS.
  18. Not sure why you would want to run a dedicated server on the same machine you play, you would probably get a hit to your playing experience. You can preset affinities of the cores to different executable, either with Windows preset affinity settings in the task manager, or by installing a 3rd party program that helps with that such as Bill's Process manager.
  19. do a simple test from your home PC - go to cmd and run - telnet SERVERIP DCSPORT change SERVERIP to your server IP change DCSPORT to your selected port (10308 by default) The screen should go blank if the port and connection is open.
  20. 1. Better Ghz as DCS uses 2 cores, one for the simulation and one for the sound (AFAIK). So having a CPU that holds 6/8 cores with 4+GHZ would be more beneficial if you want to run massive servers, if you would like to run smaller scale, lower GHZ should do. 2. IO is used by DCS, especially with scripting, but slower SSD should be enough to hold it. 3. 32GB is better, obviously DDR4 and above. 4. There's a small formula here - (number of players) * (number of units) * (moving ground units) = the higher the number the worse the stability. DCS can run a really heavy missions with up to 60 players, although I saw some really lean missions holding 70 players, but that's about as much as DCS can hold at the moment. 5.Obviously you wouldn't need to go into the server unless there's a real problem (server not starting etc..) usually server admins can just remote the machine, if you have a rescue boot with KVM or even SSH, server admins can use that to avoid having to need your assistance. 6. see 4. So there's levels of access that usually you want your server to provide. DCS today has a webgui that allows good handling of the server, the only missing part is a way to upload missions, this is easily solved by an FTP or a simple dropbox etc... Other then that, the server should run automatically without any need of intervention. We run currently 3 servers holding 5 DCS scenarios. Let me know in PM if you have any other questions, we would be glad to test on your hardware.
  21. There's still a problem with luasql module in the dedicated server installation. It is not working as it is with the normal installation.
  22. not sure if it has been reported before (probably have been but couldn't find it), once you spawn units dynamically (by script or by late activation trigger - should be the same), the spawned vehicles are automatically drivable although their group setup does not have drivable marked. Hope this is clear enough, it's killing restrictions on drivable units which in return allows players to move units in very populated servers which we know to cause lag. edit - this is effecting JTAC/Operator slot, didn't check any other CA slot.
  23. Hoping to be able to join tonight! Blue Flag requires teamwork, without it it's nearly impossible to do it alone. Glad to see old guys here interested again, looking forward to some aerial combat!
