  1. It appears that I still have the issue of tabbing out

    1) Game is focused


    2) Game is tabbed out


    I have worse ms response when I tab out DCS, but the gameplay is much smoother, I would say even playable. 


    R5 2600

    RX580 8GB

    32GB 3200MHz

    On my machine, the settings utility is stored located here...

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\MixedRealityVRDriver\bin\win64\OpenVRSettingsUX.exe

    It does not appear to work while WMR is running. The "Force DX11 mode" option is under the "Graphics" section...


    Thanks for the quick answer! Motion reprojection has to be on Motion Vector or in Auto mode?

    Does anyone have a solution for this?

    Near to the ground if I look to the side I get terrible stutters.  If I Alt Tab but still look through my Reverb it's smooth but obviously you can't use any controls.

    The only way I have found to smooth it out all the time is to force DX11 in the Steam VR settings but the quality is reduced.

    Why would forcing DX11 cause the sim to run smoothly?

    How do you force DX11? I have the same issue, and would like to get rid of it, it makes DCS unplayable

    Have you tried setting your plane tail # to something else in the ME? I'm fairly sure it tells you the aircraft number.

    Bort/Board 11 is you're aircraft identification/tail number, like Kang said. It's set in the mission editor.


    Thanks!!! That was it! Never thought of that, thanks for the answer!

    A far as why the fire doesn't go out, I am not sure. You could try immediately pressing the alternate discharge button for the gearbox compartment to use the second bottle to try to put out the fire and see if that helps. I'm not sure about the logic in DCS regarding fires and how fast they decide you need to explode.

    I've been further testing, and the issue is not the transmission fire, in case of a transmission fire it gets extinguished by the FPE. But, if you have a oil leak on the transmission, then you get the "fireball" that I was speaking about. Since oil is flamable (I think) I guess it cannot be extinguished by the extinguisher bottle/s

  5. I've been having this question for a while, why the RI-65 tells you "1" after a fire?

    In this trk, I have a transmission fire, and it says, "board" and "1" (two times) and "fire in the main transmission compartiment", then, the same sequence repeats, while the Mi8 is desintegrating mid-air. I get the transmission fire meaning, but I don't know what "board" and "1" means, any help?


    Also, why it appears to be impossible to extinguish the transmission fire? It instantly appear and in matter of 2 secons you are a fire ball going into the ground.

    @AlphaOneSix I know you know a lot of things of the Mi-8 (You fly the Mi-17, but I guess they are almost the same), could you help me with this two questions?

    Numbers issue for AlphaOneSix.trk

    Thanks for that post Flagpie! I want to add that the hability to fly a non-hardpoint slick with gunners is for sure one of the most demanded features, and we all know it is possible!





    How you do that? I want it!

    Does the JF-17 have a course line function (like all the NATO jets have) on the HSD or in the jet at all? I have tried looking through the documentation and don't see any reference to one. 

    What do you mean? On NAV mode, the aircraft will draw a course line on the HSD. You can even see them on Ramsay picture above

    I remember that deka said their graphics designer got corona virus and he was not able to complete graphics work, May be graphics are work in progress but no idea. Looking at graphics i guess just reflections are missing or may be DCS doesn't support that kind of graphics.


    As I said, DCS doesn't support those reflections, those would require RTX, and forget about it on DCS if you don't want to play at 1FPS

    Yeah that makes sense. I just wanted to share some thoughts on the real MFCDs, How militaristic they look. I mean they have depth, they are more beefy you know. May be i'm looking for perfection too much as DCS is just a simulation. 


    This is the closest I could get to the photo you posted, It's not bad, but, of course, you cannot compare with real life, because in that photo you have the screen effect when you see a screen from the side, and also real time reflections, and in DCS we don't have that much effects. Basically, it would blow half the PCs that DCS is installed at

  10. The images from the JF-17 you are posting, are from the pre-launch photos, a LOT has been changed since it. Now it has reflections on the screen, and fog simulation and a lot of other things. I can promise you that the cockpit is not the same that in the photo, it's much better. 

  11. JF-17 uses the Link-17 datalink system, wich is only compatible with NATO protocols. IIRC the KJ-2000 uses the K-type protocole wich is not compatible with Link-17 datalink protocols.

    So, that's not a bug.

    The drop tanks might be, I didn't saw it, so check for mods or something.

    I'm getting CTD quite often when removing the pylons in multiplayer (saving weight for logistics).

    The game CTD's immediately after the ground crew call "rearming complete". Nothing in the log though.


    Weird, I don't have those issues. I will force a couple of rearms and see if it CTD in my PC

    Hi guys 

    Does anyone find the data link image for the CM802AKG unusable.  It appears to be very murky now it only has IR mode available. Even when turning up the contrast it is very difficult to make out medium to small objects.  The image slightly ghosts at time too. 


    I have turned up render distance and texture settings and still has a poor image quality. 


    What do you think?  


    There are some issues with rendering that has to be fixed by ED
