  1. Watching a show video about the anatov an-22 and lo and behold they landed at tiblisi. Got some screen grabs that i'm sure you'll recognize. the three fuel tanks are right where you'd expect them, and the lake after takeoff. really good job on the game from eagle dynamics, even saw the smoke rising from a stack.
  2. US Air Force to keep the ugly, deadly, and uniquely capable A-10 in the air US Air Force to keep the ugly, deadly, and uniquely capable A-10 in the air through 2022 http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/222536-us-air-force-to-keep-the-ugly-deadly-and-uniquely-capable-a-10-in-the-air-through-2022?mailing_id=1564284&mailing=whatsnewnow&mailingID=DF3D2B23AE4089CC36C1EA625934BA55 Still keeps on going.:thumbup:
  3. Same thing as repair dcs world.
  4. What? Recommended to do so? Where? Here's a link for a10c mission you can install your self. and they are free. http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/?arrFilter_pf[filetype]=&arrFilter_pf[gameversion]=&arrFilter_pf[filelang]=&arrFilter_pf[aircraft]=60&arrFilter_DATE_CREATE_1_DAYS_TO_BACK=&CREATED_BY=&sort_by_order=TIMESTAMP_X_DESC&LICENCE_FREE=yes&set_filter=Filter Get your game from eagle dynamics. http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/downloads/world/stable/ then install the a10c module into it. There is a repair game button in the programs folder that checks for bad or missing files.( this is if you already have it installed). this is what i see when i hit training, then a10c in modules
  5. Hi, You made need to bring the sensitivity down a bit in your pedals. I had to introduce a dead zone and change my curves so they were not so touchy. If you do an outside view on the tarmac and engage nose wheel steering you can move the pedals and see how much travel you get both ways. i also had a habit of overcompensating one way then the other oscillating over the runway.
  6. Its a good gimmick. Like monster cables for better"signal". http://www.cnet.com/news/are-curved-tvs-a-gimmick/
  7. Hi, Does the dcs a10c show up in your installed module page? You can go to dcs world and download the module separately.(http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/downloads/modules/dcs_a10c_warthog/ ) Once it is "installed" then you can activate it from your module manager,using the installed screen. You have to log in to get that to work.
  8. Hi, There is a module manager in dcs world.It lets you download and activate different modules into dcs world.There is an account login at the top of the right corner that lets you get into you DCS account. Your serial from steam will be fine in the standalone. That's what i did. I recently did a new build and reactivated my modules by logging into the module screen.
  9. I finally went ahead and built a new rig. Best thing I've done for myself in a while. New Specs: CPU: I7 5930 oc to 4.4ghz board: rampage 5 extreme x99 ram: 16gb gskill ripjaws ddr4-3000 GPU: Asus gtx 980 strix Cooling: corsair h110i gt case: phanteks enthoo pro OS drive:Intel 750 ssd 400 gb pcie nvme ssd: samsung 850 evo 1TB psu: Corsair ax 1200i sound: asus sonar dx Os: Windows 7 professional 64 The only thing i haven't upgraded yet is the monitor. I'm still using my 1920 X 1200 samsung sync master 2443 bw( 60MHZ 5ms). The previous specs: CPU: I7 920 oc to 3.6ghz (couldn't get any higher and stay stable) board: rampage 3 extreme ram: 12gb mismatched ram GPU: 2 amd 6970 crossfire Cooling: Cooler Master - Hyper 212 Plus case: antec P182 OS drive:vertex 120 gb ssd psu: Corsair ax 1200i sound: asus sonar dx Os: Windows 7 professional 64 I couldn't get above 60 fps on the ground parked with this one, and it got lower if i looked around down to 20fps.Normally 20 to 30 in the air. The new on with everything on hits 120 sitting, and a 60 to 70 in the air. I've limited the fps to 60 fps to avoid stuttering and tearing and the game is butter smooth. It is still amazing if i down sample from 2560X1620 for a sharper experience.(only problem is it does this for all monitors on the card, so if you have one for mfcd you have to be careful as the screen size will change) With the cooling in place the CPU sits at 30 Celsius idle. I haven't seen it get above 60 in game play. The fans gpu doesn't even turn on till it hits about 60 and i haven't seen that reach past 69 while gaming. It is a lot quieter and cooler than the hot 920 and hotter 6970"s. The only thing i might change is replacing the case fans with 4 pin ones so i can ramp them down when not in use. I spent a lot of time trying to optimize the game to get playable rates. Upgrading sure did that for me.:thumbup:
  10. rtfm hi, i read the ....... manual. It's all good. figured it out.
  11. hi, I'm going to be making a new system from the cpu up and i was wondering what the correct steps are to ensure i dont screw up my installs. I have 2 modules installed now, dcs 10c and huey. Do i need to deactivate them first? (and how do you do that) and will i lose all my stats? or is that stored on the dcs server? and if i deactivate it and then reactivate it on my new system, will it need the keys again? Thanks

  13. this is for mustangs terrain,i made the file structure in a folder i called mustangs terrain, in the_MOD folder, and unzipped the terrain modes into the vfxtexture folder. and i copied the high lua into the config/terrain folder. the folders in the vfx texture folder are just the un zipped files.They unzip in their own folders.I do it this way. 1._MOD folder 2.ADD Mustang Terrain folder in _MOD folder 3.ADD Two folders in Mustang Terrain folder---Bazar and Config 4.In Bazar Folder:add Terrain Folder---In Terrain folder:add vfstextures folder-----Put All land textures in here 5.In Config folder:add terrain folder---copy high lua here You can see the difference with it off and on, in jsgme. Hope this helps in some way.
  14. Hi, This isn't a problem for me, i just did it once in target. When i reboot it stays off.
  15. Hi, I had to do this after some wires got pinched off after i re greased it. i actually found it was easier to re grease the ball, put it together like it would be on the base, wrap the new wire in heat shrink, with the ground wire, thread this through the ball from underneath,(avoids the possibility of it getting pinched again) re solder the pin connector and screw it back in, then attach it to the board.The biggest part was remembering where each wire connected to the pin connector.I did it one at a time.
  16. You should try an extension. It will take a lot of stress of your wrists and make the movements smoother. I built one using the gardenia hose repair kit route and about 5 dollars of pvc pipe connections.
  17. This can be a problem if you go to re grease it also.Its tight in there with tiny wires that get cut easily. I rewired mine using the extra wires from a ps2 wire i was using for an extension, and heat wrapping it all. I'm not worried about a warranty issue as it's way past that point now.
  18. finally This one picture in this thread was what made all the difference with me figuring out jsgme.It finally showed exactly how the file structure should look in the _mod folder. One minute i was frustrated the next i was ecstatic. I went crazy fixing all the broken structures i had.One rep to you. thanks cichilfan.:thumbup:
  19. Go ahead, you know you wanna.:thumbup: I have # 139 from the plant and haven't had any issues. Like almost anything there are good copies and not so good copies. You can convince yourself of anything if you read too many forums. People like it, people don't.Some people like Canons, some like Nikon. Get a rudder while you're at it and start flying.
  20. Hi, the benefit for me was easier movement of stick.I don't get wrist fatigue from the strong spring action like i used to. Sticktion is also a non issue with the extension.Once i re greased and added the extension it was another stick altogether. I don't fight the stick anymore.
  21. I wonder if using the oculus rift makes any difference with this. The large extension sure made a difference in regards to more precise movements.
  22. Hi, After reading this i just had to try a refuel after not doing one in a couple of months. Man, it is tough. I got through it but finding the sweet spot took a bit, with multiple hookups and releases. I put my own extension on recently and the movements are smoother with less porpoising and side to side. I have never used curves or dead zones and i do fine for my setup. It can frustrate the life out of you. You are a rock behind the tanker right up to the point of hook up then you seem to suddenly go spastic.
  23. Hi, Thanks for the replies. i made the print screen take the screenshots again and it works fine. thanks
