  1. Just deleted my "stable" install to free up space for the Open Beta, in order to be able to use my "brand new" A-10 C II module. Downloaded the Open Beta installer without issues, but when the download actual download of the game starts, after selecting the installation directory, the thing is first "Checking for Updates" and then a pop-up message comes up: COULDN'T CONNECT TO SERVER Are there any server issues?
  2. Is it already possible to configure synthetic vision on the go? Or is it still doable only through the ME?
  3. Hi, I am wondering if the so-called weathercock stability is a thing in DCS, is this implemented and if not, I would like to request it as a feature as it is a vital factor for helicopter ops. The wind coming from behind -between about the 4 and 8 o'clock position can contribute to loss of tail rotor effectiveness. So far I have not been able to confirm that this is already implemented in the game, but maybe it is. Nevertheless, if not, please, consider adding it, thus further enhancing helicopter simulation. Thank you!
  4. Imagine this beast as a flyable module in DCS!
  5. "Please do not use nazi Swastika" How pathectic.
  6. I would love to see the OPB1R optical bombing sight. It was discussed a while ago, even confirmed IRC but then nothing. Apart from that, updated graphics would be awesome too and perhaps multi crew capabilities.
  7. Although I have not yet purchased the map, I have been watching videos and reading reviews about it. There is one thing I truly don't like on this map and that is those small bushes that keep popping up near the aircraft as it proceeds along. It is a very "silly" solution to control the performance and keep the FPS at bay; thus reducing the draw distance of this particular type of vegetation because this way these bushes just appear out of the nothingness in front of the aircraft. This surely needs to be addressed. Please either increase their draw distance (significantly) or make them appe
  8. Dropping visibility to "medium" is not acceptable as a solution. In the Huey, I get 18-20 FPS lately, in the exterior view looking at the craft. The Viggen, giving me a pathetic 30 FPS in the cockpit, 18-19 in the outside view. And quite similar results with other modules. Something is clearly not right.
  9. I haven't played since late 2018 with a couple of exceptions back in 2019 but now that I wanted to return to DCS I immediately noticed that the performance is much worse than it used to be. I have a quite powerful PC and never in my entire DCS career had to complain about low FPS but this time it is really bad. SSLR off, MSAA off, SSAA 1.5 and all else maxed out but as I said, I always had these settings (minus the SSLR which I have no clue about, probably a new option) and my FPS were always excellent. So while the game looks really beautiful these days, unfortunately, the performance seems
  10. Awful performance on Open Beta Hello, The last time I played was back in late 2018. Own most of the modules, never had and performance issues when playing DCS. I have a quite powerful computer so I actually never even expected any sort of performance problems, low FPS. A few days ago I bought the F16 module, hoping that it will give me some motivation to return to DCS. However, my initial hopes were immediately ruined by the awful performance. I have to admit I always played the game with all settings maxed out, the only exception is SSAA which I left on 1.5, MSAA is set to off an
  11. Hello, A very old request revisited. I heard there was a "major" update to the Mirage last autumn, so fingers crossed. Is it now possible to program a synthetic runway approach without preparing the destination runway in the editor in advance? This would be a very basic feature. As far as I remember, it was not possible the last time I checked, which is a shame, because a destination airport may change at any time due to a number of reasons (weather, being one but since we are talking about a military simulation, the pre-programmed destination airport might even be under atta
  12. I am wondering if synthetic runway approaches can already be set up in the cockpit without the need to pre-program them in the Mission Editor?
  13. Looking forward to a new helicopter finally!
  14. All that I know is I want more helicopters in DCS. Many, many more.
  15. Oh man if it happens the Mirage will be my favorite module. Looks like there is still a chance that it will come!
  16. It's not about pilots liking it or not. It's a feature in the Mirage and we are talking about a simulation here. Setting up the synthetic runway in an "editor" is totally unrealistic and pretty much useless as one can only set up one airport for the anticipated arrival. But what if the airport that was set up for synthetic runway ops has been bombed? Or the weather makes it a no-go? Then an alternate airport needs to be used. But that alternate cannot have a synthetic runway approach since it requires the editor. Sure, we can land using a standard ILS approach. Even better, we can land visuall
  17. Thanks. Hopefully the functionality will come soon.
  18. Do we still need to use the Mission Editor in order to set up the synthetic runway for the approach or can it finally be done on the go, inside the cockpit, kind of ad-hoc? I haven't touched the Mirage for almost a year now and I can see it's being updated so I am wondering if this functionality is added already? It would be more than useful - what if there is a sudden change of destination - one has to have the ability to adapt to these changes and set up the systems in-flight - you can do it in real life too. I am hoping that this functionality's already added or will be added real soon.
  19. A superb AN-26 module would be awesome, not only as a civilian aircraft but also as a military / cargo aircraft to transport soldiers and equipment from A to B. It's cruising speed (around 450 km/h) would also perfectly suit the current maps such as the Caucasus and the Gulf, resulting in flight times up to 75 minutes depending on route / task. This modules, along with a much needed weather enhancement would surely put me back in front of DCS.
