  1. Of course you're right, Rudel. There are enough annoying aspects of using this sim without making it worse by having to enter my logins manually every time. And when I'm in there, flying, I enjoy it enough that all the annoyances are easily forgotten, but minimizing them to start with is never a bad thing. . Players take note: My friend who reminded me about where the saved logins are stored knows a little about coding. He said that what happened to me could be happening to everyone soon, as part of a security initiative. ED could be expiring PWs after a time interval, requiring players to renew their login info every now and then. Again, that's just a theory, but it does explain what happened to my saved login info. If it does happen to you, it's no big deal, and you now know how to handle it.
  2. Actually, a friend reminded me that my saved logins are saved on my local machine only and no place on any network. So my original question remains: How did my PW get changed on my local machine to something invalid? I'd really like to know, not just to saitisfy my own morbid curiosity, but to prevent it happening again. The only possible solution I can come up with is to not rely on the saved login info but to enter it manually every time I start the sim. I can't think of another way to prevent this.
  3. Rudel, I did as you directed, and was able to log in normally. My question is, why did my saved password get changed to something invalid? I have not changed it in a very long time -- several years. Was someone trying to log in to my account illegally and told the system to save an invalid password? I can't imagine how else this could happen. In any case it all seems better now. Thanks for your help, guys.
  4. I should mention that I went through Big Newy's list of Things To Do First and removed the "semi-unofficial" aircraft I had (the A-4. the free MB-339 and the C-130) and ran Repair. I deleted all the temp files for DCS and Windows that I could find. And according to time.gov, my computer's clock is 1.114 seconds slow. Anything else I should try?
  5. I've started getting the Invalid username or password message today and NOTHING has changed on my computer lately...or even in the last several years. I'll proceed to open a ticket formally, but wanted to post in here in case somebody knows how to burp my machine to make it all better. Anyone?
  6. I can confirm that drops made below 20K work fine. I did a drop of -38s at 18.5 and got 10 out of 10 kills. So it worked. But I had no success with the JSOWs. I dropped 8 -154As at the same altitude and got 1 kill out of lots of well-clustered targets. Most of them flew into the ground (!) nowhere near what they were aimed at.
  7. I have not tried the -54s, only the -38s and JSOWs. But the -54s use a different guidance package than the non-laser guided JDAMs, which are similar to the JSOWs. I'm guessing non-laser JDAMs and JSOWs use the same guidance modelling in-game, so if one is messed up, so is the other.. If I get a chance I'll try the -54s later today and see how they behave. EDIT: I did use the -54s, but did not use the laser guidance feature, just the JDAM guidance. I've always heard the -54 acts just like any other JDAM if you do that. And it did. I got 1 out of 10 hits.
  8. And using the GBU-38s against high-threat targets was my favorite thing in DCS. Not any more.... First, what was NOT a problem. post-update: entering a designated WP to make the INS system happy. Adding that step was easy. I've been doing the F10 targeting and -38 dropping regularly with no problems at all. (Well, some small problems, but never worth mentioning.) I'm very familiar with the process. After the update, I have been doing everything in the drop sequence just the same as always, with the addition of the WP designation. The HUD displays the JDAM symbology just like before, and up until the bombs leave the airplane everything is working just fine, just like before the update. But the -38s are simply not performing. I've seen them overfly the targets and try to double back to hit them, which never works. Most often they just come down nowhere near what they were aimed at. Used to be I could count on getting 9 out of 10 targets pretty much every drop. Today I had 1 out of 8 in one mission and 1 out of 6 in the other. I tried to attach a .trk file, but by the time I set up the airplane for the strike, took off, climbed out and executed the strike, the file was too big to attach. So here it is in Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bkbgzypvzt7f820/incirliktoo-20210104-174753.trk?dl=0 Needless to say, 1 out of 8 effectiveness is basically useless. Help! EDIT: I was told by one of the denizens of the Razbam Discord Harrier help room that his squad mates have been experiencing JDAM problems since the update. I noticed in the ED Stable update notes that a lot of work was done on the JDAMs this time around. Maybe it's time for someone from Razbam Support to tap someone from ED Support on the shoulder and let them know they've broken the JDAMs. Just sayin'. SECOND EDIT: Tried the JSOWs today (in the F-18) and they exhibit exactly the same literally aimless behavior as the JDAMs. The problem is definitely NOT confined to the Harrier, or just to the JDAMs.
  9. For those following along with this thread, (since I have been utterly unable to find an answer anywhere) the solution to my problem is the ERAS function. It's one of the tabs in the ODU, and with repeated clickings will remove the targets imported into the Recall page. A new set of 10 targets can then be imported and hit, just like the first 10 were. Works like a charm. Many, many thanks to the denizens of the Razbam Harrier Discord room, who Knew.
  10. I think you guys are both saying basically the same thing. I've tried deselecting the targets in the ODU, removing the target flags (with the T01, T02 etc., on the map), and reassigning them but neither has worked. But it is a complicated process, and it's entirely possible that I'm doing something wrong in the sequence. I think I need either step by step instructions from someone Who Knows, or a link that points me to exactly where I can find the steps. As far as I can tell, the instructions for removing one set of targets and replacing it with another do not exist in printed or video form. If you guys can show me I'm wrong about that I'd appreciate it.
  11. I've been enjoying the Harrier, using it against SAMs, mostly. I go into the map and designate 10 targets (T01, T02, etc.) for the GBU-38 JDAM, import them into the airplane using Shift-K, and am having good success during the strike. The question I have is, how can I clear the target list from the Harrier after the strike, so I can designate a new batch of 10 targets and hit 'em again? I've tried several different things to get the first strike targets to clear so I can hit another set with a second strike, but the bombs seem to just hit the targets from the first strike, now empty craters, again. Help!
  12. Don't know about anyone else..... But I'm personally pining for DCS: Thud Ridge. We already have all the MiGs we'd ever need. And we have the A-4. Obviously we'd need the F-105. But the A-7 is in the pipeline, right? What about the F-8? And is the F-4 now in process a USAF or a USN type? Because while we'll get one, we'd need the other, too. We already have the KC-135. What else? Maybe an A-6 or for the later years an F-111. Heck, keep it easy and just make them AI, too. See? We're really only an airplane or two away from making it happen. Get on the case, guys.
  13. Is there an English-translated cockpit for the J-11? I've been looking and cannot find one. I was sure I saw one a while back, but I've been wrong before...
  14. From the A-10 section of the update notes " The Ejection Seat Handle will not move now if the safety pin is installed. Triple E (Eject) keyboard command is disabled by the corresponding Ejection Safety Pin now.
