  1. Ok, so for anyone else who may have had this problem... I switched from my Microsoft (wireless mobile mouse 4000) with a smooth scrolling wheel to another mouse I had that was not 'smooth scrolling', a Logitech. I went in and tried to adjust radio and tacan via scrolling on various knobs and the problem went away. So, FWIW, I think ED might want to consider taking a look at this, but for me, I'm fine using my Logitech and its non-smooth scrolling. -Cru
  2. My understanding was that the Rift S would actually warm up after a while of use... perhaps before you fly, you should make sure the lenses are activated and let the device warm itself first?
  3. Hello all, I've searched the forums and can't seem to find anyone else asking about this... which makes me think I'm doing something stupid. Recently, in Open Beta, when I try to use my mouse scroll wheel to adjust something like a TACAN frequency, the numbers jump around so much that I simply can't get them set at all. Or like when you try to set a radio freq. Oddly, I can seem to adjust a heading dial just fine... but I did see tonight that I had a hard time adjusting the artificial horizon... I thought it was my mouse, so I switched to another one (both Microsoft smooth scrolli
  4. Reflected, and others, Thanks again for your tips... I restarted the campaign in OB and I'm pretty sure my issue climbing out was simply due to pilot error. I'm thinking I had the Mustang on full-rich mixture before. Unless there were any other anomalies, this had to be the issue. I was able to keep up with the flight, adjusting MP and RPM. My first test last night though, started with a wingman crashing into me when I taxied to the runway ;) Granted, my first time in mission two I wasn't taxiing very well... but I really do think the crashing issues are more of a DCS issue than a campai
  5. Thanks for your diligence on this! I believe the times I had the most issues were when I requested taxi... once, I braked and the trailing plane hit me, but most other times, they just crashed into each other when turning onto the runway after taxi... normally, the crashes happen right before they take off. Other point to note, I chose to fly the campaign in stable, and not open beta. I'll be restarting the campaign in OB tonight hopefully. Thanks again, -Cru
  6. As the OP on this thread, I thought I had already replied, but remembered that I was on my mobile and had a technical issue. Thanks to everyone for the advice.... I have not been able to verify climbing out with the suggested settings. I do tend to repair often though... hopefully it will do the trick; I'll try and update the thread. As for wingmen crashing... for me, they crash on taxiing to the runway or right before takeoff nearly every time. I finally found that if I simply took off as soon as my engine was warmed up; basically jumping the gun, that I've had better success. Becau
  7. Hello all, In mission to, your flight joins another. On the way over the channel the other flight climbs to 20k at around 220 knots... No matter what I do I can't keep up. I lose so much ground over the channel that by the time I get there, the battle is just about over. I must not know something about the mustang.. How in earth do you fly fast enough to keep up? Any advice? Even my wingmen can't keep up with me and are falling way behind. Thanks! Cru Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk
  8. On another note... anyone know why I can't seem to embed the Youtube like correctly?
  9. Hey Alpine! I think you'll find, that in general, most people will gladly help you with any question you have. Of course, always try to find the answers first. I find that YouTube almost always has a video explaining exactly what you need to know... tutorials on basic setup, VR examples, etc... Its funny to see the new guys get in a jet, cold and dark, and say... "now what"? What key to you hit for auto-start? Sure, auto-start may exist, but you really shouldn't use it. Go to YouTube and lookup the startup sequence for the plane you plan on flying.... you'll learn them in no time.
  10. When I said I couldn't find anything online, that I knew most likely it was an indication I was being dense... I was using the UHF backup on the left hand console... Thanks for setting me straight, I wasn't using the UFC. Thanks again! -cru Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk
  11. Hello pilots, To be honest, I'm new to SRS... however, I seem to have it working really well in other models, like the F-18, but I can't seem to change the channel in the F-16C. I've searched the forum and online for a solution and haven't found anything... which means, it's probably my issue and I've done something wrong. Can anyone confirm that SRS does work with the F-16C? If so, I'll continue tweaking and try to find out what I did wrong. Thanks! -Cru
  12. Hello all, Last night, on the non-beta server, Sochi was being invaded and Piper dropped a bunch of troops near the base to fight off the invasion. I don't blame him, really, but the troops of course strayed into combat and then generated a bunch of team-kills for the folks ground pounding the enemy. My question is... it does seem as though dropping troops would be a good idea, would it be possible to set ground troops invincible to friendly fire? Cru
  13. FWIW, I'm fairly certain my guardian system is disabled...
  14. I've been flying the F-14 and this happens to me too, however, I think it only happens when I look at the lower right hand panel, like to adjust lights. I look down and to the right and SNAP, I've now got my head stuck near the emergency brake. So, I believe I've had the issue pop up other places, but it just about always happens when I'm looking at the light switches in the F-14. -Cru
