  1. Sabre's AFT01 mission only costs $1 available here: http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=62992 (Main discussion here) http://www3.sympatico.ca/tlaschuk/mapleflagmissions/dcsa10c.html (Website) https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/208371/ (Download) And here's a helpful video (not really): The mission starts you at the entry of an air-to-air refuelling zone and the instructor tells you to contact the tanker, fly closer, maintain altitude, prepare your aircraft, call pre-contact and then tells you when you’re not close enough and when you’re too close, when you’re connect
  2. Yes. If your "Mirrors" value becomes high when you are flying with mirrors activated and the mirrors are currently on screen that means a lot of time is spent drawing them and since the graphics card won't send the image to your monitor until it is fully drawn that means your frametime (time to draw the frame) will increase and framerate (frequency frames are displayed at) decrease. However in this case the only high values are “General” and “Scene” that aren’t something you can simply switch off with only a setting and means that your computer is generally sweating. In order to decrease
  3. Completed campaign AFT02. 85 minutes, had to abort one landing at Batumi because of zero visibility. Only bug is again that the shutdown timer starts early when you stop anywhere on the ground including on or after clearing the runway. Oh and in both AFT01 and AFT02 I experienced my first connection not counting, maybe because I was too quick? In AFT01 I made my first connection and the instructor didn’t seem to notice at all and then I accidentally disconnected immediately and he didn’t tell me I disconnected to soon either. In AFT02 I did the same thing but didn’t disconnect and it took h
  4. FPS (Not sure what value in parenthesis means) Mission time MIS??? Objects drawn on screen Polygons drawn on screen FT (Complementary opposite of FPS) How many FT are spent on drawing each component of the image RAM use (or VRAM?) Camera angles??? If the MFD/Mirror FT value is high that means you should turn those settings down but in your case only Main is high (no MFDs/Mirrors on-screen so that makes sense) meaning you have to turn down general/view settings if you want a better FPS/FT.
  5. I wouldn't waste my time unless I was using a laptop. In the case of laptops turning off energy saving features can bring incredible bounty.
  6. I've started the AAT campaign now and AFT01 was great, a lot livelier than the practice mission. Everything went perfectly except for times on target that didn’t want to work with me at all. However I saw one bug: the runway I decided to stop entirely and that triggered the shutdown procedure so after speeding into my parking spot I only had 30 seconds to shut down … a shame because otherwise I might have had a Q+. I disconnected immediately on my first connect by accident but I don’t think I successfully connected at all so it may not have counted. 75 minutes so the time estimate of nee
  7. Great sale as always... only question is why not have constantly intermediate cost instead of sometimes very high and sometimes super cheap.
  8. I'm not bothering learning how to play? I'm not bothering learning how to write scripts for ****ing DCS configs :doh: Why do you so strongly oppose that ED make their product more user-friendly? Elitism.
  9. What's the secret to making your unguided bombs hit using CCRP?
  10. In AAT06 how do you shoot the helicopters without being able to use the AIM-9s (because of constant countermeasures) or going below 5000 ft? I'm also under the impression some mission briefings are cut such as the AAT07 practice mission... it just stops in the middle and there's no mention of minimum altitude, apparently 250 ft?
  11. I didn't have any issues with AFT04 practice mission a few days ago. I can't remember if I played it before or after the last update though.
  12. I'm not very interested in anything without a clickable cockpit. The only way I'm buying another non-full detail module again is if the cockpit is clickable (even only a few switches!) and all essential flight avionics are interactive which is what Cliffs aircraft claim but seriously... I disagree. In the A-10A you can't even stop engines fires even though there are three massive fire handles in front of your face at all times... never again. In my opinion there should be no more substandard quality aircraft, unless they set a higher standard definition of "essential avionics" and ma
