  1. Thank you for your help - unfortunately it did not help! The actual path for Hercules is: Desktop\this PC\Videos\saved games\DCS openbeta\mods\aircraft\Hercules. I didn't put it there & when I found it, it was in the double folder - Hercules\Hercules - which I had carefully corrected in the places I did put it. Anyway, all's well that ends well & Hercules is up & running in DCS. Thanks again. ChrisD
  2. Sorry to sound like an idiot - but how do you install this mod? Firstly, I did not have a saved games folder on C:\Users\Chris. So I added the following -\Saved Games\DCSWorld OpenBeta\mods\aircraft\ then added Hercules 6.5 ( NOT Hercules\Hercules) Nothing has shown up on DCS DCS is installed on E drive & is up to date. Any idea where I am going wrong? ChrisD Just to add - I have turned off the historical filter - with it on it showed 2016. Nowhere is Hercules showing.

    A8 to F8

    I am surprised no one has changed the A8 to the F8. The biggest change is the bubble canopy - from the 190D maybe. Easy removal of the outer cannons? ChrisJD
  5. Hi BIGNEW Thank you for your quick reply & you will be pleased to know that all is well. A full cleanup & repair did the trick. I'll keep those files in case I need them in the future. Thanks again. ChrisD
  6. Hi Just bought the F86, seems to have installed correctly BUT when I select, say, Free Flight, the program loads the A10C. When loaded the Briefing screen shows the F86 Free Flight, but the aircraft is the A10C. I am using Win10 & DCS is 2.5.5. Help!! ChrisD
  7. Solved I think! Hi The Autopilot is NOT mentioned, nor is the EAC used for the this. The actual place is the LAAP. L Alt + A puts the Autopilot into Alt Hold. To change to other modes you press L Alt + A again, then select L Alt + 1 2 or 3 then press L Alt + A again & you should get Path hold or Path/Alt hold. I will have to have a play around to get things clear in my mind! ChrisJD
  8. Thanks nessuno0505 Yes I have tried different permutations of L Alt + 1 2 3 4 5 No luck. The problem is that on the Control set up for the A10A, the Autopilot is not listed at all - so obviously no keystrokes are going to be recognised. Perhaps I will raise a bug report with ED. ChrisJD
  9. Hi JanK I have been using DCS since FC1, so I am familiar with the keystrokes for the Autopilot. I am currently using the latest version of DCS 2.5.4.27430. The A10A has no keystrokes/joystick buttons at all for an Autopilot, & the F15C has 3 listed - none of which work. Since there is nothing listed for the A10A, I would like to know why this has been omitted - when the real A10A has an autopilot? Hardly realistic! ED, answers please. ChrisJD
  10. Hi I had to re install DCS recently & thought I would fly the A10A & F15 again. So where is the autopilot for both these aircraft? The key strokes are listed, but have no effect. Am I missing something or have they actually been removed from the modules? ChrisJD
  11. Final Hi norbot. Well! As a last resort I installed a fresh new DCS World. All my modules are there, the installed list shows the A4 & guess what? The A4 is now available in the mission planner & I took it out for a short circuit & it flies beautifully with no problems at all. I now have to set up all the controls again for all my modules but that's no problem. However, here is the thing - the new install did NOT make a C\User\Chris\Saved Games\DCS folder, but again made D\Chris\Saved Games\DCS & in fact used the same folder I had been using with my missions &
  12. Hi norbot No luck with the repair - all it did was make a new saved game folder in D drive - so I had 2 of them. I have a feeling that when I got my PC a new SSD drive C was fitted just for Windows & I think any extra programs or data, etc were diverted to D drive. This is why DCS puts the saved games folder in D. So until the A4 is placed in the Mods folder in DCS it is never going to work for me - unless the devs have any other ideas. Regards ChrisJD
  13. Thanks norbot. The odd thing is that on the D drive there is a folder called missions & on that I had about 6 of my missions which showed up to use in game. I certainly have many more aircraft than the 2 free ones. Oh well. I'll try your suggestions but I think you may be right about a re-install. We'll see. Thanks again. Regards ChrisJD
  14. Right!! The problem is something I stupidly skipped over. I blindly assumed that the Chris\Saved Games in drive D was the one used. BUT the word User was not there. I then looked at C drive & found Users\Chris there. But there was no entry for Saved Games or DCS for that matter. so I added them all up to & including the A4. Partial success! The A4 now shows up on the installed list on the home screen. But it does not appear in the mission editor. So I assume the editor cannot find the A4 install location. Can anyone help with this? As an aside, I find I have a J-11A o
  15. Thanks norbot. Definitely no A4 in the DCS\Mods\aircraft folder. It's only in my saved games folder. I have no idea why it's not showing either. Regards ChrisJD
