  1. cheers Grimes. I will get the lads to try this.
  2. Hi guys, We have recently started using SLmod on our server. One of the reason for using it is that we tend to run a high percentage of missions that have time critical elements to them. It does't matter how many times we tell people not to join the server, there is always that one who just does and in doing so he starts the mission timers which then messes the whole mission goals up. One of our members has used SLmod before and said there was a mission pause feature so that the mission is paused at start. We tried it last and all workd fine when an admin was in the pit, but as soo
  3. Cheers Jester. Where might I find file that so that I can test it locally on single player
  4. Hi guys, The issue with the BDU-33 is that in the real world on a firing range these small practice bombs emit a small amount of smoke on ground impact that lasts for approx 10 seconds. This burn time is purely for position identification so that an exact impact point can be found by triangulation from two spotting towers. However, in DCS, the smoke from a single bomb lasts for 5 minutes or so and has enough smoke volume to obscure the target area making it impossible to carry out another run until the smoke has subsided. Is there any way this could be toned down so that A)not such i
  5. I fly on the very same server that Dave is trying to connect to and I currently use Starways Black Sea map with no issues. I was on there last night with the rest of the gang. That is until I got shot down. That points to it NOT being a map texture issue.
  6. TBH guys I find the Hawk not too bad at all regards trim as after all, this little bird is not really designed to be flown straight and level for any great length of time. It is designed for training basic combat maneuvers in a jet where if you fly straight and level you are dead. Yes there are times when a bit of steady flight is useful but is easy to sort out with a bit of trim/throttle use. PMan, I have flown the T2 sim at RAF Valley, and can assure the guys on here that trimming that baby can be a real handful at times, and that is with systems rather more advanced that the T1a Keep
  7. We already have three versions running on our server at the same time. Okay, they are 2.0, 1.5 release and 1.5 beta and all seems good with that as it is now. I guess that due to DCS 2.0 having the T4 graphics engine it will be more memory hungry than either 1.5 versions so if we are able to get three instances of 2.5 running side by side, each using a different map I can see that we may be using more memory than current, but until we are able to try it no one really knows what the drop is likely to be, if any. Currently our DCS servers are consistently near the top of ED's server list a
  8. Thank you Buzzels. I will give that a go when I get five mins. Does seem like a possible method though. Will look at that map Doctor
  9. Hi guys, looking good with the Normandy stuff. Well done. I am hoping that Wags or someone will have some sort of answer to the following. I am part of a group that have a dedicated flight DCS flight server that is both for our use and public use. Currently with the three versions of DCS (1.5, 1.5 beta and 2.0) we are able to have all three running at the same time on our server. This is absolutely fantastic as it gives loads of options throught the week. When everything is brought up to the same T4 standard and all running under the 2.5 banner what will be the options for people lik
  10. You are a star bud. That worked a treat. I owe you a pint.:drink:
  11. After doing the new update this morning DCS2 will not start. I have done 2 repairs and have tried starting it from both the normal exe and the updater exe in the Bin folder. Logs state the following:- === Log opened UTC 2016-02-27 09:49:08 00000.000 INFO VFS: Using 'Saved Games': "C:\Users\Richard\Saved Games" 00000.004 INFO DCS: DCS/ (x86_64; Windows/6.1.7601) 00000.004 INFO DCS: CPU cores: 2, System RAM: 12274 MB 00000.014 INFO EDCORE: (dDispatcher)enterToState_:0 00000.029 INFO Dispatcher: 2016/2/27 09:49 V1508170900 00000.080 INFO INPUT: Device crea
  12. Great news Chris. Really looking forward to seeing the results of all the work you guys have been doing. Sent from my HTC One mini using Tapatalk
  13. Yes I am a Hawk owner, and yes the delays are rather frustrating. That said, when I parted with my money I knew I was buying a 'work in progress' version. I was happy with that as I felt that the greater the number of Hawks out there would give VEAO better feedback. From their perspective, the goal posts have been moved several times with how their bird needs development for integration into DCS World versions. The version that the Hawk was originally intended for is long gone. Every software developer, VEAO, Microsoft, Apple and even good old Eagle Dynamics put stuff out before it shoul
  14. It is good up there Chris. Had a looksie at the 360 degree T2 motion simulator but there was a student about to fly it so only managed a sit in it. Had I been a couple of hours earlier I would have managed a blast in that too. Now that baby is stunning. Next time.
  15. I had this same problem. Mine was caused by having the Reshade(sweet fx) mod installed. Removed that and the mission started no problem. Sent from my HTC One mini using Tapatalk
