It's broken on 1.5.7 (updated today). When launching DCS.exe never loaded more than 10% (couldn't even see a menu).

The mod has been updated to 1.5e, which now loads properly in DCS World 1.5.7/2.1.1.

The known issue was a matter of proper installation. I have revised the readme and re-uploaded 1.5e.

If you don't want to re-download the mod, here's the applicable portion of the readme:
Quote:
Installation:

This mod is in three parts:
1) The JTAC & AWACS Main mod
2) The Ka-50 module-specific mod
3) the Mi-8 module-specific mod

To use this mod properly, you must have the Main mod enabled. Then enable the module-specific mods for whichever modules you have installed (i.e. Ka-50/Mi-8). The reason for the separation is because if you don't have one of the modules (e.g. the Mi-8), installing the Mi-8 file will cause a crash to desktop.

For those who have a problem in loading (halt at 10% after applying this mod)
(only tested on 1.5.8, ka-50, JTAC only - i don't know if this is working on 2.2 or MI-MTV2 or about AWACS)

1. Download latested 1.5e version in following link (DCS hompage -> Downloads->userfiles)

https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...files/1874700/

2. unzip it & DELETE "me_action_db.lua" in following position

"your JSGME mod file folder\JTAC & AWACS for Ka-50 & Mi-8 (Main)\MissionEditor\modules


3. apply mods with JSGME
1) "JTAC & AWACS for Ka-50 & Mi-8 (Main)" first
2) "JTAC & AWACS for Ka-50 (Module)"

I wish this tip might help you.

Thank you

@Home Fries
Thanks for continuing your support for this. I have not yet tried it, but looks promising.

I have searched in this thread and elsewhere to find a way to enable JTAC in the Huey. I found this by Flagrum and thought it would work, but got a little bit hesitant when examined the content of this mod. It seems not to be that easy as only adding two lines in the comm.lua for the Huey, if I would like the same functionality as for the Ka-50 and Mi-8.

The last comment in this thread about this is from October 2014. A lot have happen since then (and will happen in a few days!).
Any plans for adding the Huey? I read a post by TurboHog why he had not yet added it, is it still valid?

Tanks!

Holton,

Unfortunately, I no longer have the time to maintain this mod. I've actually been trying to transfer responsibility for it for the past 2 years (if anyone is interested, please speak up ). Right now, my plan is to release a final version for 1.5 once it becomes legacy, then hope somebody else takes the initiative.

Ah well, it's a pity but I understand and respect your decision. I really hope you find someone skilled to pass it on to eventually. Maybe when/if it stops working with the 2.x branch some in the community might finally step forward.
Thanks for your effort so far!
