  1. Thanks Flappie. I always learn something new and useful hre, and you seem to be especially knowledgeable. Many thanks Navy Ace Oh, by the way. Is there a tutorial somewhere that I can use to learn about making my own missions?
  2. Hi Art, Thanks for the quick reply. I'll look into your suggestions. Did you see my other post in the 2.5 bugs and problems subheading about needing new directions? Perhaps you could advise me on this also. Thanks again
  3. Hello Again, I have recently begun playing with DCS again after a long absence. In doing so I have found a problem with trying to use an old set of directions in the new version. In a previous long ago post concerning how to add a payload, a paint scheme, and the start time to my P-51D which I was using in the Final Approach to Lochinvini (sp) Quick Mission in the original v 1 of DCS World I was told the following: HOW TO FIND A PAINT SCHEME AND ADD PAYLOAD 1. Go to Mission Editor 2. Click Open File (top left of screen0 3. Find mission via top right blo
  4. Here's a bit more information. I just checked the controls settings of my P-51D and P-47D (where the HAT button is working) against the SPit IX (which is not) and found that in all three cases the View Down L/R Slow and Down Slow, ViewL/R Slow and Up L/R Slow and Up Slow are all identically assigned to the HAT button but those in the Spit are not functioning. Should I delete these assignments and try to reassign? I also found out that I can move around in the external view using the mouse, but this does not work for the internal view.
  5. Hello, I hope someone can help me with this. I have started playing around with DCS after a long layoff and have uncovered a bit of a problem. When using both the internal f1 and external f2 views with the Spitfire selected, I find that I have no control in either view with the HAT botton on top of my joystick. I have to use the Num keys on the right of the keyboard with requires multiple taps to move the view to any extent. I also have the P-51D and the P-47D installed and working, and both views in both aircraft are controllable using the HAT button. I don't remember having had t
  6. Thanks for the additional information Sokol1. I will definitely check out the links. By the way, your observation of the control stick length of WWII fighters was correct. I gave the 3-4 foot length as an approximation from my last SNJ flight which was several years ago. Evidently my memory was not up to the task. As a test I got out a yardstick and sat down in a chair approximating the height of the aircraft seat and placed the yardstick between my knees. When I grabbed the yardstick with my arm resting on my leg, which would be the normal in flight position, I found that I had grasped the ya
  7. Thanks random and Buzz for your information on stick extensions. I looked at the sites for VKB and Virpil and found them interesting and not overly expensive. But the length was only 200 mm so only about 8 inches. It doesn't say in the product description but do you know if two or more of these extensions can be screwed together to get extra length? I remember that the SNJ stick seemed to be around 2.5-3 feet in length so one extension would be more realistic than none, but not as good as more. It would be great if I could find a stick premade in the length I want as as not to have to put on a
  8. Oh, I forgot to ask. If I want to tweak some of my settings by adjusting the sliders, which way is which? For example if I want less sensitivity, left or right? Same for dead zones and saturation.
  9. Thanks Rebel All help is greatly appreciated. I am using Saitek Pro rudder pedals. NavyAce
  10. Thanks Baldrick, I should have clarified that I don't want the extension for my Thrustmaster. I would have to purchase a Warthog stick first and then add the extension to it.
  11. Thanks Art for the detailed reply. If I eventually decide to try a full stick I will have to get the Warthog first as I do not presently have one. If I do, can I purchase the extensions from them as well and hopefully they would come with instructions for installation. Your points are well taken and I will keep your reply close by as I decide what to do. Thanks for all your input. NavyAce
  12. Hi Baldrick, Thanks for the quick reply. I see you are using a Warthog with an extension. Why did the company tell me they weren't available and warned against using them if they are in fact available (how did you purchase them anyway if they were not listed in the catalog?) and work fine? I would be interested if I could purchase one that would work with my setup. NavyAce
  13. Hi Guys, Thanks for the hardware reminder regarding different settings for long and short sticks. I would like to eventually have a full scale joystick but this does not seem possible right now. I had heard through the editors of PC Pilot magazine that they thought that Warthog had a telescoping extension available, so I contacted their Customer Service department with the following request: I was recently told about your Hotas Warthog stick that comes with extensions so that it can be made to approximate the length of a real WWII era stick. Can this unit be attached via a USB po
  14. Hi Art, Thanks for the reminder of the different definitions regarding long and short sticks. I had heard through the editors of PC Pilot magazine that they thought that Warthog had a telescoping extension available, so I contacted their Customer Service department with the following request: I was recently told about your Hotas Warthog stick that comes with extensions so that it can be made to approximate the length of a real WWII era stick. Can this unit be attached via a USB port and is it plug and play? How do I mount the stick on the floor? Can the sensitivity etc. setting
  15. I'm currently using a Thrustmaster T.16000M with no extensions
