  1. I had already figured out that I needed to point VAICOM in the wright direction. I already found this and done it, but guess I needed to restart it a few times along with DCS. Everything now works with the test flight I just performed. Thanks! Wayne Happy flying
  2. Thanks a bunch. I will do that and try it out. Cheers, Wayne
  3. I moved my main Eagle Dynamics folder from my C drive to another drive. Now when I have Voice Attack/VAICOM Pro running and DCS is running with me in the F/A-18C my Main Comm window displays and hides itself fairly frequently. When I push my Comm 1 PTT button the window will either display or hide and it will not recognize my voice commands. I am hoping to not have to remove and reinstall as I have already done the voice training and don't really want to do that again as it took a while. How can I correct this? Do I have to remove and reinstall to get this back working? I love the program and the added immersion that it provides. Wayne
  4. Thanks Hoss for the info and a way forward. I will keep this in mind when figuring out my next steps. Thanks, Wayne
  5. I am starting to run out of room on my C drive and thinking about purchasing and installing a 1 TB SSD drive for just DCS. When I move my DCS over, how do I bring my logbook and other stuff with it? I don't know where to post this to get the most replies and help. I hope this is the correct forum. Patiently Waiting, Wayne
  6. Thanks for your words of wisdom. I am keeping it "as is" and enjoy what I have. I was looking at upgrading the other parts of my DCS tower, purchased back in Aug 2013, but when I noticed the large boost in FPS after the move to ver 2.7, I asked my self why? I had lots of headaches when I had it slightly OC'ed for a bit and when I removed it, on the advice from someone here, it went back to working normally. My tower is currently an Alienware with an Intel iCore7 3820 3.5G(boosted to 4.2G), 16GB RAM, with the new video board mentioned above installed last year when they were released. I had to upgrade my power supply as the original one did not have the power plug required for the new video board. I didn't see enough of a gain to go with the RTX 2080 with 11GB of video RAM to spend the extra money. The video board that came with the tower was an Nvidia GTX 660 and I was seeing in the low 30 FPS. After lots of research and I decided the best bang for my buck was the video board that I bought, looks like I lucked in on this decision. Thanks Again, Happy Flyin' Wayne
  7. I had CTD issues after installing my new EVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX2070 Super XC Ultra, applied some moderate overclocking and found out that OC was causing the issue. After switching back to running stock settings DCS has been golden. I was seeing in the mid 30's FPS before we moved to version 2.7 and now I see 60's and 70's FPS with no other changes to my system. I bought this board so that I could overclock it and see better numbers in my FPS, but can't do that as DCS doesn't like it. Can I start to play with settings or just leave it alone and enjoy what I have? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I am updating the software now as I just checked for updates and noticed that I have missed a number of them. Thanks, Wayne
  8. Thanks guys for the information. I played with it and have it working. I just flew the mission and dropped the four weapons on four different targets on the first pass. All four hit their targets. Cheers, Wayne
  9. I am having an issue selecting a different station for JDAM. In this mission I created I have 4 x GBU-31 on stations 2,3,7, and 8. I can only program on the ground to one station, number 7 by default. When I switch to other stations to program the next JDAM the first mission PP is crossed out. If I leave the STEP button alone than I can program all of the mission PP's and all seems good. After I get airborne and ready to drop the weapons on their intended targets I can only drop the first weapon. This GBU-31 hits the intended target perfectly. After it leaves the jet all of the other PP's cross out and I am not able to select a different station. I watched and followed this YouTube video from Spudknocker. I am confident that I am following all of his steps, but not getting the same results. I forgot to save and attach the flight video after I exited the mission. I will remember to save and attach the file sometime today or tomorrow. Cheers, Wayne
  10. Thanks. I had this on my 'To Do' list and see that someone beat me to it. Cheers, Wayne
  11. Thanks for that information. I just started using DCS back when they had released the pre-order for their F/A/18C Hornet, early 2018. Cheers, Wayne
  12. I hope this is the correct place for this to be. How can I change ATC to hear knots per hour as appose to meters per second? I have been in a number of real aircraft listening to ATC on approach and it is ALWAYS given as knots per hour, never meters per second. All aircraft wind limitations are in knots per hour. Cheers, Wayne
  13. True. Realism for in-cockpit. Wayne
  14. I too have been experiencing crashes on exit from mission. I haven't tried anything yet, but might later on today. Outside to get some yard work done before it gets too hot. I will try a few things later today and report them back here after. Wayne
  15. Do you have resistors installed on your LED's? If so, bump up the value to reduce the intensity and brightness of the LED's. Wayne
  16. What are other people doing that have full cockpit mock ups with the Brakes handle in the F/A-18C Hornet cockpit? Someone over on Github just told me that this is an issue with no fix and probably won't have one anytime soon. I have the same switch setup for my Wing Fold handle and it works every single time. Any help will be very greatly appreciated. I DON'T want to use my mouse or keyboard during any aspect of my F/A-18C Hornet flight. Thanks, Wayne

  18. I am having an issue getting the EMERG/PARK Brake Handle to work with two switches running through DCS BIOS. This is how I currently have it setup, but I can't get it to move from PARK back to EMERG after it is there. This is what I am using: const byte emergencyParkingBrakeRotatePins[3] = {51, 53}; DcsBios::SwitchMultiPos emergencyParkingBrakeRotate("EMERGENCY_PARKING_BRAKE_ROTATE", emergencyParkingBrakeRotatePins, 3); DcsBios::Switch2Pos emergencyParkingBrakePull("EMERGENCY_PARKING_BRAKE_PULL", 52); I get the same response if I just use the two position switch option. It will move up and down and it will rotate from EMERG to PARK until I get it pulled and set to PARK than it won't move at all. I am finding this strange. Thanks, Wayne

  20. What has happened to some of our required buttons? I can't use PRINT SCREEN to take pictures of the amazing clouds or me refueling anymore? Someone already mentioned that the PAUSE is not working either. What happened Eagle Dynamics? Where are those functions? Wayne
  21. I found this problem too!
  22. I have been wondering about these changes too, but thought I was pipe dreaming for us Canadians that like to hoop into our beloved hornet and fly it!!! I was posted to CFB Cold Lake for a short four years, but enjoyed them immensely while there. It would be nice to have CLAWR brought into DCS Maps, but answered and NOT happening (BUMMER).

  23. Looking for some help on purchasing a new wired headset. I want a wired headset to eliminate the need to charge it and I have had it die on me while flying, not cool. Also, it works with my TrackIR cable. My current headset is the TM T-Flight US Air Force and the mic stopped working one day months ago. I have been using my webcam mic since and I need a proper headset mic that won't quite on me. I have been looking at this one. Sennheiser GSP 600 – Wired Closed Acoustic Gaming Headset, Noise-Cancelling Microphone, Adjustable Headband with Customizable Contact Pressure, Volume Control, PC + Mac + Xbox + PS4, Pro – Black/Red I found it on Amazon Canada for $200 CDN and feel that it is a good price. What are others using and why? Does anyone know how to disassemble the TM T-Flight and see about fixing it as a possible back up? Thanks, Wayne
  24. Would this be a possibility given that we have Canadian skins and perform night intercepts? Thanks, Wayne Flies Cdn CAF Hornets
