A heads up for all the key binding requests. Here is the list of new key bindings that are coming in v1.3.1. These are pending testing right now and there might be changes. So if there are some commands that you requested, you're encouraged to join in the testing group to help confirm that the commands are working.

We want to make sure this changelog is confirmed before doing a public release. Then we can get back to working on the cool stuff again for the next big update. Active testers are still a rarity so it might take a long time to confirm the changelog if we can't get more help. We would appreciate your support if possible.

Community A-4E-C Release v1.3.1 now available

Hi everyone! We are releasing a new patch for the A-4E-C with some critical fixes and a number of new key bindings that have been requested by the community. This is not a major release with significant new features so we are naming it version 1.3.1. The primary fix in this patch is the new EDM 3D files which are required as of DCS Openbeta version 2.5.5. This is a required update for all versions post 2.5.5 which should eventually be required for the release version as well.

We have been working on some quality of life improvements such as additional key bindings and we have improved the function of the carrier catapult. Spawning on the carrier catapult will now automatically hook you into the catapult with no additional key presses.

We are consolidating all our resources on Github so our distribution will be via Github as well. No account is necessary to download but a free account is required for posting bugs in the issue tracker.

Please take a look at the detailed changelog below for details. We hope you'll be able to take the A-4E to the skies once again and thank you for your support.

Download Community A-4E-C v 1.3.1

Calling for Testers
We are constantly looking for additional people who can help with functional testing and playtesting of the development builds of the A-4E-C. Due to the complex nature of the mod, the dev team isn't able to properly test every aspect of the mod and this has been pushing back our development time and release schedule.

We are looking for motivated individuals who are able to help perform functional testing when new features are added and playtesting when a release version is being built. We need individuals who are willing to file bug reports detailing the problem so that the devs can address the issues. Experience and knowledge of the A-4E while appreciated, is not a requirement. We need testers who could try to break the module with incorrect procedures as well. What is important is the willingness to learn the systems through the various documentation, the willingness to be procedural in testing, and filing bug reports in the issue tracker when bugs are found.

If you are interested in helping out, please get in contact with us through our discord channel.

Changelog: Version 1.3.1 - 17 June 2019

That’s interesting. It was never brought to our attention that there was such a bug. It would be best to file bugs at https://github.com/heclak/community-a4e-c/issues so we can be informed of it.

I’m inclined to think it is a bug with the DCS Engine itself between EFM and SFM aircraft but I’ll try to investigate regardless. Since I haven’t been able to recreate this issue yet, would you be able to help with some tests for data collection?

No worries. I’m perfectly fine with people reporting possible issues as long as people are willing to be detailed and assist in additional testing. Not all issues can be recreated on our end.

There’s also the point that mods like the A-4E might not be causing the bug but just revealing a bug in the main sim. In that case, we really can’t do anything about it. But if there’s something that we can do on our end that is within reason, we’ll definitely try our best since we are making this for the community after all.

I’m not sure if you’ve seen my reply on your thread. It would be extremely useful if you could help out with providing that data. So if there’s really something that I can do on our end, we can try to squeeze it into the next patch.

When a "patch' for this is released like the 1.3.1 version above do we just download it and and replace the existing A4 directory with it? Or does it actually run and install updates the the existing directory?


Thanks,

@Alphazulu

delete the whole current mod version and the input folder in savedgames\dcs\config\input first
to make sure no conflicts with the new version,

There isn't a need to delete your input folder unless you run into issues rebinding keys. There's no major change to the controls that people usually have bound so we don't predict many people needing to rebind keys.

But you must delete the existing A-4E-C folder and replace it as per all updates.
