  1. Title pretty much says it. It’s been like two weeks now, and it’s still a roll of the dice as to if I will have a hard freeze or not when I hit fly. It’s getting old, and I’m in a large group so rolling back isn’t an option. Should we expect a long broken jet or is this getting fixed soon?
  2. Thanks, I'll try it. Diving from 25k to sea level seems to trash it, but I'll try the auto adjustment.
  3. Every time I've gotten into a good dive I end up overspeeding the engine. I pull the RPM level back but in the dive it seems like it still just forces the prop over the redline. What am I doing wrong? (prop settings are on auto).
  4. Where does the 47 perform better than the K4 and D9? I’m having trouble finding information on those two German planes as far as turn performance and altitude performance. From what I could find, it sounds like the D9 can maintain power up at high altitudes (can it do so as well as the 47 can?) and I have no idea about the K4’s altitude performance. Anyone have any idea?
  5. What prop did they give us? Paddle-blade or thin?
  6. D40, auto rudder off, warthog hotas. I’m not hamfisting it. I can settle the pipper on a target that’s flying straight, let go of the stick, and the plane wobbles around to the point that I can’t get a tracking shot.
  7. Why does the nose wobble so badly in this thing? I understand at high AOA it is supposed to, but I can't shoot down a plane flying straight because the nose just wobbles back and forth CONSTANTLY. I'm not going too slow. 200 knots. I've tried it all all speeds. It's trimmed out. None of the other WW2 birds do this. I've never seen it do it in gun cam footage in real jugs. What's going on with it?
  8. @IronMikeEdit 2: We've tested it quite a bit. We all removed ALL mods, repaired DCS, let it rebuild the Saved Games folder, rebuilt shaders... still happens. I will note that in 2D it is HARD to make it happen, but it did happen once for us (out of around 100 tries). In VR it happens MUCH more, around 50% of the time. All of us tomcat pilots in the wing. Different headsets, different computers, it's consistently happening around half the time. It seems to happen most often when we are in the jet, go back to spectators, hop back in the same jet, and try to spawn. That'll often cause the freeze.
  9. Tonight a bunch of guys from the wing (vCSG-3) had our Friday Night Fight... All the Tomcats (A and B) would freeze on spawn around ~50% of the time, requiring a hard restart to fix. I flew maybe 8 times, had the freeze 3 times. Others had more freezes with similar amounts of flights. Seems intermittent. This is on Caucuses, just an empty map with maybe 20 jets total spawnable, no more than 2 in the air at a time. RIOs would randomly freeze as well when the jet spawned. Edit: We have NO mods that affect the Tomcat.
  10. AWACS is giving me clean calls when I request picture. It's not clean. I know it can see enemy groups because I'm getting them all via data link from AWACS. Why is it calling clean picture?
  11. Against any 4th gen fighter, it’s an angles fighter. It’s got a relatively poor T/W ratio. I generally try to take it 1C at the merge to take advantage of the Cat’s great turn radius. It struggles in a rate fight against 4th gen fighters.
  12. My issue is... why am I getting that launch warning for the first 10-15 seconds? Shouldn’t there be... nothing?
  13. What it’s doing now is giving a launch warning when it launches for about 10-15 seconds, then the tone goes to a normal lock tone. Sometimes the lock tone goes away as well (and the missile still tracks). And it’s not in a blind spot. Either directly ahead or on the 3/9.
