  1. Hello all. I wasnt really sure where to pose this question and I figured with the amount of TM Warthog owners that play DCS, this seemed like a logical place. I have been using the TM Warthog as my go to HOTAS for a number of years now, with the throttle mounted to a Monstertech desk mount that stays in place when not in use as it is not in my way. All of my flightsim gear and other USB hardware are plugged into a powered USB 3.0 hub under my desk and nothing gets unplugged in between uses. Last week, my computer was making the normal Windows sound that is made when a device is unplugged and plugged back in, rather frequently throughout the day. Nothing appeared to be changing, and the LEDs on the throttle remained illuminated. The following day when I turned my PC on, I noticed the LEDs on the throttle were off and sure enough, it was not showing up in the Windows settings nor in DCS.


    I began troubleshooting by swapping out the USB hub for a known good device which did not help, no matter what port I tried it on. My next step was to plug the throttle directly into my PC and when doing this, it is detected and works fine. Unfortunately this is not a permanent solution as the PC is too far away for the cord to reach. I ordered a couple of USB extension cables to see if this would rectify the issue, but it does not. So now I am stumped. If I plug in the throttle to the front panel ports on my case, it works fine, but any other connection method only leads to the LEDs flickering a few times and the throttle is not recognized. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas, I am all ears and would greatly appreciate it. I am reasonably hardware savvy and build all my own PCs, but the functionality of USB is not something I am all that familiar with. Thanks and I look forward to some feedback.

  2. Educated guess based on all the other topics asking this same question, is that we can expect no news or updates in the foreseeable future. PC is still at it as shown in the recent updates to the Gazelle yesterday. As much as I would love to get my hands on the Kiowa I am not expecting anything for quite a while. I would love to be the scout element for the upcoming Apache finding and lasting targets but this seems to be something much farther down the road than originally hoped. I wish the folks at Polychop nothing but the best and look forward to a great future with them.

    Has LTE been modelled or reported in the Mi8? 
    The reason I ask is today in the SAR Server, I was returning with 11 pax, 3/4 fuel load. It was winter, -35 and I’m climbing through 3000m, at 120 knob, trying to keep the ground in view as a climbed up a mountain. At some point I lost sight of the ground and a tree loomed ahead, with more mountain behind it. I pulled in the remaining power and initiated a cyclic climb into IMC. Before I knew it, I had zeroed out on speed and I was still climbing at 3m per second. The heading indicator was rotating left, so I applied more right pedal, to the point, I’d reach the stops and I was still rotating to the left. All the de-icing was on, even reducing power to zero out the climb and enter a hover in IMC, I was still slowly rotating left. 

    Could you share a little more info on this SAR server? Sounds pretty interesting and was one of my favorite activities back in the days of Mirknir’s Open Conflict server, and would love to find another server to perform the SAR role. Thanks!

  4. Hello all. Like many others I have recently got back into the Mi-8 in anticipation of the upcoming Hind module. While relearning the techniques and procedures for the Hip it reminded me of something I noticed in the past but never thought to bring to the forums. So on to the question. 

    I use the TM Warthog Throttle for my Collective input, specifically the right throttle, although I keep them locked together and have the axis curves and saturation set up as recommended in Chucks wonderful guide. For the most part this works out great but I have noticed that more often than not the amount of input required at the “sweet spot” to either maintain straight and level flight, or to descend at a safe vertical speed in order to prevent entering VRS, is extremely small. I know that using such a short travel axis is nothing like the fine input that can be achieved with a proper collective, but has anyone come up with axis settings for the Warthog that might give a little more “granularity” or precision in the middle part of the axis? I imagine there is a sweet spot in terms of X or Y saturation that may achieve what I am looking for but I can’t seem to wrap my mind around how to make this work. 

    Has anyone else ever had this thought, and figured out a solution? I would love to hear the thoughts and ideas of the community. Thanks all!

  5. I want to express my support for Bailey's efforts on this wonderful program! I too would love to see ED allow this to be implemented. While DTC support is great for Single Player, this tool that Bailey has created is amazing for those of us who primarily fly Multiplayer in that it allows us to predefine custom CMS programs and ALIC tables for the threats we expect on our preferred servers. Sure, we can edit them in cockpit but what is the "HARM" in letting us setup our ALIC tables beforehand?

  6. Hello all. Quick question for those in the know, but has anyone found an affordable server hosting service that will work with DCS? I have repeatedly looked into hosting a server for my friends and I to play on from time to time, or even running one locally on my machine, but Its always been too much hassle. There are numerous threads on here inquiring about the same question but nothing recent. Anyone have any new info to share? Thanks. 

  7. Update- I was contacted by a VERY talented and wonderful artist who was kind enough to help me with this project. Together we collaborated this idea into a very elegant and tasteful skin (as much as you can for an Azur Lane skin) that is loosely based on the famous Diana skin. I can not express my gratitude enough to this person who shall remain nameless unless he decided to step in here and take some well deserved credit.  


    I knew going into this that it was going to be a tough sell as most folks looking for along the lines of what I was after probably want something tacky or even lewd. This was never what I was after and I am very happy that a good kid from Singapore now has his favorite "waifu" on his favorite aircraft of all time. The pure joy and excitement in his voice made it all worthwhile. To the true artist behind this project, I cannot thank you enough.

  8. Hello all. I am not sure where to go to ask this but here seemed like a good start. I am looking to commission a custom livery for the Viper, and its a doozy. It truly is for a friend, and something I would personally use, but I would like to surprise him with an Azur Lane Atago themed livery. He is a younger guy who is way to interested in Hentai (in my opinion) but to each their own. There is one currently available in the User files section here but it is not of HIS waifu. 🙂 If this is something you might be able to assist with please reach out to me so we can work something out. Thanks for reading and I apologize for tainting our forums with this request. 🙂

    Yes we are updating the campaign for the A-10C II module.  The new video is also to coincide with a complete update of the voice overs for both the original and A-10C II updated campaign.  I can't say when the new files will be ready but we hope very soon.

    Are these going to be actual training missions or just a set of “Checkrides” like before? My main gripe with these before was that the missions told you what you needed to do, but provide no instructions other than a practice mission. 

  10. I really hope the livery artists come out in force the way they did with the Hornet. My livery folder alone is pushing 20GB. :)


    That said, I would love to see a livery for the NY ANG from Syracuse in honor of a friend of mine that was a crew chief there and did multiple deployments. Such a nice livery.


  11. FWIW, I too have recently started experiencing the same issue as the OP. I have removed all my mods prior to today’s update but am still having the issue. Don’t know if it is even remotely possible but my problems started when I changed out the stick on WarBRD base from the standard Warthog to the Hornet stick. Will have to swap it back and see if there is something too it. Maybe the different force from the Hornet stick is keeping the base from maintaining its center.

  12. Hello all. I am wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a list of which radar emitters are included in each of the categories we can filter by. For instance, I am reasonably sure that the SA-2 is in the H1 category. Does anyone know of a list for this mode? Thanks.
