  1. I have been asked repeatedly about my methodology for the flight model. Since it's not really a commercial thing for me, I will post on it in the forums. Give me a little time, though; DCS time is not real world time ;)
  2. I had intended to do a follow up post about what I meant when I said, in reference to the Tu-22M3, "I didn't say it can't be done. It might be done, even with official support, and that is the way I think it should be done." The short explanation is that this project needs resources FROM THE START to make it happen. My 'free load first, money later' approach would never have worked. Knowing what I know now, I'm kind of embarassed to think about what went through ED and Heatblur/Leatherneck people's minds as they watched me push this along. Man, I was so pie-in-the-sky! To state in hind
  3. I chose my words carefully when I said I stopped working on the project. I didn't say it can't be done. It might be done, even with official support, and that is the way I think it should be done. I will write a longer post about my successes and mistakes, and what I think it would take for someone else to succeed.
  4. I quit working on the project for two reasons. First, although I was very open and honest about everything, the project still became a bureaucratic security issue for my employer, as a US Air Force contractor. I ended up resigning partly because of it. But more importantly, I had established a relationship with some Tu-22M people in Russia who were happy to contribute to the project, but eventually had to ask me politely to cease my research efforts. I won't say exactly why, but the request was reasonable, they had been very fair with me, and I agreed to drop the project. While I was tr
  5. Workin it, workin it! Sirius, sorry, I owe you a response too!
  6. No toes stepped on. Beautiful, and motivational. I have next weekend set aside to work on the flight model. When I get it working, I will probably hand it off to Oleg and Dimitry to make a video with. I'm not set up to do a good job of that. Me does the 0's and 1's. Brian
  7. Hahahaha! I get that a lot actually. I'm too much of an engineer, too nerdy, to pick a vanity username, so it's literally Brian A Cooper. 11 is my lucky number, from the Pitts S-1-11, the greatest airplane ever made by anyone, anywhere, period. I use that same handle for most everything. That might be risky in terms of identity theft, but I'm crafty about passwords and not having really personal data on the internet in the first place. No facebook, no photos, no twitter, no financial data. I think it also helps with some of the crazier requests I make, of Ukrainians and Russians for the Ba
  8. It was a stealth video. Looking at my calendar for a date to commit...weekend of the 17th.
  9. I totally get why it takes ED so long to do anything... I'll prioritize that the rest of this week.
  10. I worked it all day every day for 10 days straight. I needed a break, but I'm back at it. I'm at that perpetual 99% done point, keep finding little things that need doing... Don't worry about money right now. Backfire-C will see the light of day. It's too cool not to.
  11. Can somebody point me to where the various iCommands are associated with command numbers in ed_fm_set_command?
  12. FM logic is done, now just trying to build .dll. May take a while getting the FM to line up with ED's EFM template.
  13. If you want to help, everybody do your voodoo chicken dance, sacrifice to the God of 0's and 1's
  14. I'm 99% the way there. Populating aerodynamic data right now. I'm at that project stage where it seems almost done, but last minute necessities keep popping up. Should have video later today or tomorrow.
