  1. Just letting you know slider. My problem is definitely a broken SSD... Good luck problem solving yours.
  2. I'm not sure of anything at this point. The same SSD has Escape from Tarkov on it, and it won't start either but I am able to repair EFT. I can't repair DCS maybe because it is over 240 gig. ireaslly don't want to delete it and reinstall as that will take days at the speed it downloads. Is there a way to repair DCS in smaller chunks?
  3. I think found the problem. It seems the SSD DCS is installed on is broken and it's just a coincidence that 2.7 came out. dam. This is a 240 gig download ! and the down loader won't even let us throttle it or pause it ... SMH
  4. Tried to update to 2.7 this morning and can't start the updater. Also can't start DCS either. downloaded a new version of the updater and tried that.

  5. Really enjoying playing with the newly fine tuned FM for DCS MiG-21. I found this great resource about the MiG-21 in USAF Aggressor Squadron. It's a really good read for DCS MiG-21 fans and fanatics. The new FM seems to be closer to the test pilots descriptions than it was before. They state: "Even the mighty F-15 Eagle had no solution in dogfight below 150-250 knots against MiG-21 in US Aggressor hands...This way Mig-21 will remain behind every opponent still having sufficient control ability for gun tracking using rudder rolls...It is obvious that US aggressor pilots pulled
  6. Incase anybody doesn't know about this. We have detailed description from the USAF aggressor pilots use of the MiG-21 at slow speed and high AOA, full aft stick and rudder rolls. That's where I got the idea to try this counter intuitive tactics. Read page 4 -5 "Even the mighty F-15 Eagle had no solution in dogfight below 150-250 knots against MiG-21 in US Aggressor hands...This way Mig-21 will remain behind every opponent still having sufficient control ability for gun tracking using rudder rolls...It is obvious that US aggressor pilots pulled full aft stick in turn regardless of the
  7. I just tried the FM and IMO think it's the best it's ever been. Bravo. Still very challenging to fly if you go over AOA limits it drops a wing without warning but once you are down to very slow speed you can control nicely at high AOA. This is really fun to fly like this. You can see I drop a wing at 1.02 sec and then held the stick back and just used rudder to roll till until I got gun on Tiger. I love it.
  8. I took off on multiplayer server as RED F16 thinking at last I deal with the Blue Patriots and Hawks... Ten minutes later I land where I took off with HARMs still under my wings. Can't target Blue missiles :(
  9. I've never had issues with FPS in the MIg 21 until the last update. Strangely enough my FPS chugs with very high AOA. Weirdest thing. I was testing the stall behaviour and noticed the FPS would half as I stalled the plane.... WTH ?! Maybe i was looking down ward and the radar screen was coming into view? I'll have to test again
  10. Some of the most satisfying moments in the Fishbed were nailing an aero break after a successful PvP online sorte. I've been using the SPS ... I approach just below 300km/h and without too much concern for perfect speed and decent rate but then just before touchdown I give it a little burst of the throttle just enough for the blown flaps to cancel out the descent rate to almost nothing just as the main wheels touch down. For me the timing of this burst of blown flaps powered lift is what makes it work. The front wheel will usually still try to come down but this movement is gentle enou
  11. Just found this great work! Hopefully your sounds get integrated into the module and credited to you at some stage. I've been asking in this forum for months, maybe years, for some audio feedback for AOA, buffeting, airframe creaking, cockpit shake, audible vortex or turbulent flow over wings. Riding the AOA limit is so important in this module and we don't have the other feedback a real pilot would have from all his senses. I wonder if some seasoned Mig 21 pilots could smell the AOA limits approaching? lol As you some of the other modules have great audio feedback for AOA. There is no
  12. I'm using an old FFB stick and a couple of years ago I was pretty good at riding the edge in the mig 21 but not any more. Some of that is stick time. I had a lot more back then. Maybe i'm just rusty but it seems to have changed also. I really can't imagine how anyone flies it without a FFb stick. Must be hard. I switched the ARU to manual and turned the sensitivity all the way up and that made a big difference. Thanks for that suggestion
  13. I'm struggling with the mig21 too. The pitch limited at hi speed is hurting but I wish we had some sound feedback as it approaches AOA stall. It's impossible to watch the AOA indicator while riding the edge and looking up at the enemy aircraft. Some buffeting noise would REALLY help me fly this plane better. I can see vaper/ turbulent flow if I look over my shoulder at high alpha. Would that be audible in real life? I have also noticed that if I do go over AOA and into stall it's now quite controllable with the stick all the way back and using rudder to roll. Right down to 200kp/h. I've h
  14. Is it possible to datalink the F16c with the Russian A50 AWACS?
