  1. Gave it several months before retrying it. Still nothing... I understand that this is abandoned and won't be wasting any more of my time in it.
  2. A little irrelevant to your question per se, but in case you have any spare axis you can assign it there. But perhaps you already know that... Sent from my SM-J510FN using Tapatalk
  3. So, the first method (as mentioned in the relevant training mission) is a kind of a cheat? That's good to know. I had already checked the "realistic..." box under special. Although checked, I can still successfully employ the missile following both methods in the training mission (that's kind of weird). In the campaign however, I notice the following: following the first method, the pipper doesn't lock on the ground (that's normal) but the green lock light illuminates (is this normal?). When I'm following the second method (no lock) the missile always falls short. I'm confused... Sent from my
  4. Ah yes I did. Perhaps I wasn't very much concentrated :D Can't wait for it! Sent from my SM-J510FN using Tapatalk
  5. Very nice! Payware? Sent from my SM-J510FN using Tapatalk
  6. Don't worry about starting multiplayer now (I was in the past). There are many people who play multiplayer without playing as in a team and there are all skills to be found in multiplayer. The reason I suggest multiplayer is because you get realistic dogfighting with proper physics (AI is both UFO and unimaginative) AND you learn faster. Happy flights!

  7. You got all the right equipment, so there is nothing wrong picking the Spitfire as your first warbird. Check the discussions about adjusting the curves so you're comfortable with it. Also, practice making coordinated turns. I would suggest skipping the single player missions for your training and go straight to multiplayer (LFDM server is very nice place to start). After you get beaten hard for a couple of weeks you're going to start getting the feel of the aircraft. I presume you already know the the Spitfire is a great turner, but you have to get the feel of its limits to be able to use this
  8. Tried it today and seems to work as intended. Are you sure you follow all the instructions given in the manual for dive bombing? Sent from my SM-J510FN using Tapatalk
  9. Awesome news! Thank you very much! Sent from my SM-J510FN using Tapatalk
  10. Yes, it is. The two vertical lines that appear tell you that it isn't safe to continue the run, and the circle is the command to pull up. You're too shallow in both. Sent from my SM-J510FN using Tapatalk
  11. I am not at home and don't have the manual on me but I'm fairly confident bx1 to bx5 are for navigation and not reconnaissance. So it makes sense that you preprogramme those waypoints for getting fixes from locations on the map that stand out on your radar but aren't part of your flight plan. I don't think you're supposed to create a new bx1 to bx5 waypoint using your radar while flying. You preprogramme them and then get a fix if and when needed. Now on a different scenario, say that you see an enemy's location and want to mark it: use bx6 to bx8 (bx9 acts weirdly) to mark it with your rad
  12. I think that bx1 to bx5 are nav fixes, whereas bx6 to bx9 are target fixes. So to my understanding, it is normal behaviour. I have noticed that bx9 generates a bug that messes up the the radar display indications (I can't remember in what way but it is consistent and reproducible). Bx6 to bx8 are fine though.

  13. I cannot answer to your question, but I have made a list of all missiles with what I could gather from google. Bear in mind that it may be very inaccurate
  14. We all fly a different spit as long as we have different setups AND we don't have a metre long joysticks. And most importantly we don't get the same (if any) control force feedback. This is by definition. That said, I'm using an extreme custom curve with my MSFF2 BUT I never needed to add any curve or deazone on my MFG pedals. They allow for really tiny corrections which I think correspond quite well to how the pedals move in the virtual cockpit. Sent from my SM-J510FN using Tapatalk

    Yes, I know but I'd like a little more detail for the Caucasus map beacons and to have some beacon map for the other theatres. I'm using a tool, I think it's called "dcs kneeboard" which has been around for a while apparently. I think I haven't been able to use it in its full potential but it looks a very promising tool.
