  1. I am having similar problems. I tried some of the free modules (eg. F18, Spitfire). I thought the servers would be busy so after successfully installing the free modules and trying them I went off-line to play my paid-for modules (eg. A-10c). I was having problems so I created a support ticket attaching my game log. However, Antoly Zhavoronkov at tech support said ED is busy and and tech help is not available. He directed me to use the forums and the manuals instead. In my ticket (98087), I mentioned that before creating the ticket I googled the issues and asked in the community forums (I
  2. @Emmy , I'm not sure that I understand the question. I'm learning how to use A-G weapons. I have non-moving Russian bombers, a tank, and a couple of trucks parked; and, a fuel depot and a bunker on that huge X-airport for target practice.
  3. How do I re-spawn or get a new plane? rCtrl-rShift-Tab is not working for me. Under what scenario is it possible? Can I re-spawn even when the plane is not damaged or crashed or flying, or at a training or custom mission? Thanks. What is the keyboard shortcut for re-starting a simple mission I created?
  4. How do I change the font colors of the HUD in-game (rCtrl-h doesn't seem to be working for me) and change the default HUD color? Also, how do I change the color and the fonts of the text displayed on the top left side of the game screen (where the fps is displayed)? Thanks.
  5. Interesting. Is that how it's done in real life too? No indicator in the HUD or or the front panel like the flaps have them?
  6. Pressing the left Alt-z key places the plane in slow motion mode. Left Ctrl-z accelerates the game speed and left Shift-z places it in normal mode. How does one tell the status of the game speed (not the speed of the plane). Also, left Shift-Ctrl-Pause puts the plane in Active Pause (an oxymoron for sure). Is there a video somewhere demonstrating the effect of Active Pause? Thanks.
  7. I'm using a single joystick. How does one tell if the speed brakes are open or close from inside the cockpit? Thanks.
  8. Pressing the keyboard shortcut 'u' makes the HUD the SOI and places an asterisk on the left side. For me, the asterisk is always there even if the HUD is not the SOI. Why is that? Also, when the MFCD is the SOI there is supposed to be a frame or a container box on the inside of the MFCD screen. I don't that either (after pressing the shortcut letters 'h' or 'k'). Any ideas why the frames would not show up? Thanks.
  9. You included what exactly?? ... I scanned over the prior messages thinking that maybe I missed something from you but could not find any. Please elaborate. Thanks.
  10. Thank you both. I'm reminded of this article: :-) https://hbr.org/2009/09/death-by-information-overload
  11. @David_OC - wow! @Dagger71 - nice tip. @randomTOTEN - I'm going to try that too. So many acronyms. That's why it's a 'study level' aircraft. Reading is not enough. I can't imagine how it could get more complicated. Makes me wonder why the switches are not automated. I'm not a personal fan of the guy but I keep wondering what if they had asked Steve Jobs to re-design the instrument panel. He could probably have gotten away with using just 10 buttons max: engine, weapons (2), communications, countermeasures, flight and three or more button or switch modifiers. Maybe just one
  12. Thanks... I created a test mission, improved my joystick settings and I was able to get rid of the shimmers. I'm going to try your other suggestions.
  13. I did a search of the forum before creating this post. Most of the issues and forum suggestions about the issues I'm experiencing are very old and did not work for me. I've had the A10-c for some time but rarely used it due to the steep learning curve. Now that I have time, I'd like to make another attempt. I'm using Win10 and a nVidia 1070ti card with this game. I've tried using nVidia Inspector (frame locked at 60 fps using a 27" Dell G-sync monitor, never used it in P3D) using the settings for DCS Black Shark and I also tried playing around with the Nividia Control Panel avail
