  1. So I constructed a makeshift UFC for the F18 using a spare Cougar MFD and a programmable keyboard which works really nicely and is much cheaper than buying a replica. I got the UFC viewport output by changing lua files and replacing it every time DCS updates. It would be really awesome if the UFC viewport was official and the viewport was "brighter" as it is pretty dim and the best way to make it visible on the second monitor is to increase the UFC to full brightness in DCS which is fine in day missions but probably will be an issue on night missions. I know this will be very low priority but it would be nice to get as the UFC is so heavily used in the F18c.
  2. I've tried this in the a10 and the F18 and it works perfectly. I can't get the "Menu;..Show options" or "Cargo;..show options" to work in the the huey sometimes the menu is shown but you can't select any of the options sometimes the menu comes up the by just pressing TX1, i've tried using the dial selector knob to pick different channels but nothing works for me. Any help would be much appreciated.
  3. So I've decided I "need" the Super Taurus throttle unit to replace my perfectly functional and adequate warthog throttle. The longer travel of the taurus throttle will surely provide more precision for refueling and helo's. Wanted to get some info about mounting the thing and opinions on how good the throttle is, looks like it's gonna be plenty expensive so I want to avoid buyers remorse at all costs. THe Winwing mounts look awful, the monstertech mount looks better but thats another £100 on top the £510 quid, in for £510 quid in for £610 as they say lol. Advice from anyone will be appreciated but especially anyone with experience of buying these things in the UK.
  4. In DCS 2.5xx this mission had almost cloudless clear blue skies but the 2.7xx update has filled the AO with lovely fluffy clouds that obscure the area from view for me and my flight forcing us down into the engagement range of the SA-19 which results in the wingfolks eating a SAM for brunch. It's not really a bug just wondered if the weather conditions will be changed as the original mission design had us at 16000ft which is not possible anymore. Apart from that i liked the campaign alot and would recommend anyone give it shot.
  5. Thanks guys I went into the module manager and removed F18c from the list of installed modules and thats it fixed now.
  6. So i tried the hornet when the free trial was being done and now that its over I'm stuck with this warning every time I start DCS. Authorization is valid for 2d 23h 59m The following DLCs are not authorized and will be disabled: F/A-18C Please god let there be a way to get rid of this annoying thing.:wallbash:
  7. I have the same CPU and was considering an upgrade in the autumn, would love to know what DCS specific benefits you get from your upgrade.
  8. Hey there got mine in today, had a little trouble with installation but i got it sorted and going again within an hour. The post below details the issue i had and how i managed to overcome my issue. https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=272738
  9. So I got my Delta sim upgrade today and decided to get it installed but the wire that attaches the throttle handle PCB to the PCB in the base of the throttle has detached. There isn't any slack in the cable so I'm in a bit of trouble now trying to reattach it. Any help would be super appreciated. EDIT So i ended up taking the "plate" off the back of the throttle handle to get access to the internals and got it working. What id did was 1 Remove the cover that sits between the throttle handles which gives you limited access to the screws the retain the cover. 2 I removed the back screw (the one closest to "idle", i didnt have to do anything to the front one) and then pulling the cover up and over the magnet allowing me to rotate the cover and expose the "back side" so i could then use needle nose pliers to reattach the connection. So its all good now but a fair bit of sweaty palms was experienced over the last hour.
  10. Has anyone got diff.lua's for a good layout for the stick and throttle? :thumbup: Edit: For the original Warthog stick and throttle, not the new F18 stick
  11. Ok future boy, I'd guess most people are playing using a 2D display so making the default view optimised for VR is a tad premature. Hopefully we'll get a switch in the options menu for 2D/3D displays.

  13. Thanks for the advice gents, at least i'm not the only one finding this mission to be a bit tough. I had hoped that the campaigns would have been "fixed" by this point in the year, im perfectly willing to accept that the updates can cause issues with AI and triggers, but 6 or 7 months seems like enough time to expect some polish to be applied to the "content". :music_whistling:
  14. Good grief, I love DCS World but the AI and the campaigns are so hit and miss. :(
  15. I've played this mission a couple of times and the JTAC doesn't seem to be triggering correctly or something. On my first attempt JTAC gave the UTM coordinates and no data, then after I called IP inbound he stopped responding. On my second attempt I got data from JTAC and then after calling IP inbound he stopped responding again. Any help would be much appreciated.
  16. I've tried this mission five or six times now and I'm finding it really hard on two counts. I can't aim worth a damn and the Mi24 "109" never engages the convoy. Has anyone had success with this mission lately, is 109 supposed to assist with the convoy attack? I'm sure when i played this mission a couple of years ago the convoy halted and you had to land to inspect the convoy?
  17. If you get right on the startup as soon as the mission starts you can keep up with the lead. I do the IFCC bit test after EGI alignment and EAC is armed etc, lead normally starts taxiing to the runway about half way through the IFCC bit test so I can catch up to lead on the taxi way. It is very close though, it would be better if the lead waited another minute before starting to taxi to the runway. He's probably eager to get it over and hit the casino's ;)
  18. Ive read that ED are reworking the A10c's cockpit textures, I'm hoping this will help with MFCD's. From what I've read they're hoping to complete this before the end of this year.
  19. Just flown this mission on Wingman blew up after we exchanged troops so that i could make the extraction, as i went to make the extraction my fuel pump failed, when I got to Shpora the troop wouldn't diembark. Is the fuel pump failure normal? Whats going on I thought this campaign was fixed?
  20. Ahhh I think I understand now, I'm an idiot. It doesn't even mention pre-purchase of the A10c:doh:
  21. As the title says I was looking at the description for this campaign and it mentions the pre-purchase of A10c and the free Nevada map. Whats the story?
  22. Definitely going to get this as a birthday present for myself this year. Great work sir:thumbup:
  23. Beta means bugs, it's far from ideal but it's to be expected. The size that DCS and its modules have expanded to have made in house bug tracking impossible which is why the Open Beta exists. We are the testing team. Waiting for bug fixes is frustrating, everyone feels the same, but with such a small dev team the fixes actually come out fairly quickly. I feel frustrated alot with DCS, but it's DCS or nothing, there are no other modern aircraft/combat sims out there. I've just learned to be more patient and so will you. I'm afraid that's all we can do.
  24. I would try it with the 3.5 first and see how that goes. I think that should be right. :)
  25. You need to uncheck Fullscreen in the DCS/system options tab.
