  1. I have gotten back into DCS w/ a new machine and set of monitors. I have two different monitors. The left one is running at 1920 x 1040, the right one is running 2560 x 1440. The right one is setup to be "primary" in Windows. When I run DCS, it shows up on that monitor. I am trying to set it up so that right monitor considers to be the main monitor and I can put exports like MFCDs on the left monitor. I have a couple of questions: 1. Does DCS support this type of setup (running across multiple monitors with different resolutions)? 2. I have tinkered around w/ monitor setup LUA files. I ha
  2. Additional question about adding the touchscreen as second monitor. I have a GTX 970 FTW. Is the card beefy enough to support both screens and keep decent (I know, subjective) frame rate? I don't use high graphic settings now and wonder if I need to upgrade card before working about adding a second screen...
  3. Unable to get objects to load I found my issue. If I would slow down and properly read instructions. I initially placed the folder in my DCS world mods/tech folder and not the saved games version. Nothing to see here, move along. I look forward to using these assets. Thank you to Noodle and Stuka for your time and efforts.
  4. I had the same problem with running the A-10C startup training mission running on v2.5.4.27430 of DCS world. Based on an earlier post in this thread, I was about to re-map the gun to LCtrl+Space instead of Space. When I got into DCS World, I noticed that my gun wasn't mapped to any key so I mapped my Gun to Space. I went into the start-up training mission and the space bar was working. I don't know if this will fix anyone else's issue with A-10C training missions and spacebar but you may want to try it if the gun isn't mapped to spacebar.
  5. Trying not to necro this old thread but this is exactly what is happening to me when I run the A-10C training missions in 2.5. Is anyone else seeing this? At first I thought it might be my system not being up to spec (it is rather old) but it plays the small missions just fine.
  6. I wanted to get back into DCS (after a break: ~ 3 months). I plugged my Warthog HOTAS and realized that the joystick was recognized but the throttle wasn't. I haven't had these plugged in for months. I tried reloading the driver and the bootstrap (bulk driver) trick and nothing is working. I have a Windows 10 machine. I even tried a Windows 7 laptop and got the same result. When I plug in the throttle, the computer says that the last connected USB device malfunctioned. I opened up the bottom of the throttle housing and didn't see any obvious damage. Is the throttle hosed or is there som
  7. I would really like to see CH-47 Chinook helicopter. They are a thing of beauty. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  8. @Yurgon, I am in total agreement with you. I too spend too much time focused on using TGP and not using my eyes. I watch some of the other player's YouTube channels (like Bunyap) and kick myself for not training myself to recognize targets from the cockpit... I do agree that super zoom is not cheating since we don't have true binoculars. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  9. I thought Kuky's explanation made a lot of sense and provided a plausible reason why the mirrors degrade your performance. It reminds me of the developer comments of Portal talking about the issues and optimizations they had to go through to render views beyond the holes created by the portal gun.
  10. Alright, I can bomb Greenpeace protesters! :megalol: Joking aside, I appreciate your time and efforts creating assets that easily fit/feel at home in a mission created for NTTR map. Thank you!
  11. Emergency landing comes to mind. I am not a pilot (commercial nor military, nor do I play one on TV or after staying a night at Holiday Inn Express) so is there a viable reason why contacting the ATC at NELLIS for landing and getting an "OK" wouldn't turn on landing lights? Would there be a reason why the ATC at NELLIS wouldn't allow you to land for emergency reasons (if you are a recognized US military plane)? I agree with you that it may be just a minor bug to be worked out.
  12. Thing of beauty... I feel like a kid anticipating that they are going to get what they want Christmas... I do recognize that you didn't say it will be ready by Christmas... That doesn't stop me from being giddy.
  13. Is that because of some contractual agreement or is it an issue of ED resource management & other priorities?
  14. I will also chip in and say that my GFX 560 Ti is doing quite adequate running at 50-70 fps flying on medium settings. I was very pleasantly surprised at that result since I get less performance (30-40ish) on 1.2 with the approximately the same graphic settings. This is NOT a recommendation to go out and buy such an old video card. All I am trying to say is that don't let the minimum requirements for 1.5 scare you into not trying it at all. I admit that I delayed trying out 1.5 for that reason. I can confirm that in 2.0/NTTR, I am not getting the same fps using the same graphic settings
