  1. Hi Greg! Thanks for the reply, and sorry it took me a while to get back to replying! I do have almost all of the codes Ive been given. I think there may be 1 or 2 I cant find now. EEDAHP EHEACB HCEADP EDEAIG (The last letter here may be a U, I cross them out when done with them so I can't tell) EIEAJY EJEABY EJEFBL EJJAGN HBEAFL HBDAAB Hope you can make some sense of that. Let me know if there are other details I can provide for you. Thanks!
  2. Not to jump in with similar questions, but after more than ten missions, I feel like the world is the same for each mission in my case. I am not making this post as a complaint, but rather to try to understand what's happening more thoroughly. I am seeing some of the things others have posted. I have read through the materials and believe I understand the ideas behind the campaign in terms of the areas that each need to be liberated etc. That said, while it seems that I have liberated some areas, the only thing that seems to change for me is the campaign code and where the ground for
  3. Since there is some interaction in this topic, I'd like to ask some questions as well. I like the concept of this campaign very much. It's a neat idea. However, I find myself wondering if I've broken something. I have now flown about ten missions, and other than the progress code changing, it's hard to tell what is actually changing mission to mission. For example, the same two MiG-29s spawn in each mission, but because the friendly AI packages start in the air, they shoot them down before I get there, regardless of the roll I choose for them, and myself.
  4. I'm not sure if the author(s) of this campaign respond here, but I have some questions. Maybe others can help. I have flown 5 or 6 missions beyond the first one, and I am wondering about what is happening and not happening as I fly. Despite it being suggested that I fly more SEAD missions, and the intel talking about SA-8 and SA-15s in the area, I have not encountered any. In fact, other than a lone SA-6 in the last mission that I flew, I have encountered no air defense aside from MANPADS and Shilkas/truck mounted Zu-23s. This isn't necessarily a problem, but I am confused why there
  5. Jane's F/A-18 is an all-time favorite for me too. So much fun had with that one!! Many thanks for the controls help too, Wags!
  6. There was an A-10 manual available on Lulu.com. Black and white, but well made and bound, for only something like 35$. It appears to no longer be listed. If someone was feeling ambitious, they could format the PDF (give it a proper cover, etc) and have a printed copy of the Viggen manual fairly cheap. (I'd get one too!) https://www.lulu.com/ Has the manual been updated since initial release? There were quite a few things waiting to be added at that point.
  7. This would presumably come more into play when they update the weather systems. It would be neat to pass through some lower layers and see moderate to severe mixed icing building up on the air-frame. It would prove a unique challenge too, where one would have to limit time spent at low level when those conditions exist. I suppose frontal boundaries are too much to hope for, but transitions from freezing rain to pellets to snow would be neat too.
  8. I just took the plunge over the holidays and can echo everyone else. It is just so damn cool. The sensation of being in the cockpit simply cannot be explained. You just have to try it. That said, the limitations are there too. Yeah, resolution is low. Yeah, finding targets is tricky (to put it mildly). You will spend some time messing with settings, something I haven't managed to finalize, due to my being pretty impatient and unskilled with that side of things. With regards to waiting, I am not sure it makes sense to. Even if they came out with a headset capable of the resolutions we are
  9. Yeah, you did! I did too! We're gonna get merged with the other thread, but that's ok. Merry Christmas!
  10. A printed Airport/Facility directory, or Flight Supplement type of document would go a long way to helping with that familiarity. I like the idea of a manual with me rather than using F-10. Edit: I guess such a thing was already made. Sweet! http://wiki.hoggit.us/images/7/7f/DCS_Ground_Charts_v350.pdf
  11. I assumed you had import fees? I am in Canada, so it could be different, but the package arrived here and was grabbed by a (seemingly) random import broker based on the far side of the country. I paid fees to them, and they arranged the subsequent shipping to me. (In my case, Purolator.) All that said, if you have heard anything about fees or a broker, talk to them.
  12. It's more the part where you asked if the lack of a mention is a good or bad thing. That's why Sithspawn replied as he did. You then seemed to not understand why he took the tone he did, so I explained that you came across as trying to read too much into it.
  13. You're looking too much into it. Wags' update wasn't a top to bottom synopsis of the project but just a quick blurb. No specific mention of the radar or any other sub-system carries no additional or hidden meaning.
  14. This is what we do now, right? :smartass: Anyhow, Im curious to hear what you guys think: Im thinking the consensus will be that this card is overkill for DCS, correct?
