Default 7.6. verison 1.5.3 update on Steam and Hawk EFM?

Hello,

I've been waiting for the EFM for quite a while now and I've been looking closely at my downloads on Steam. This weekend we got the 1.5.3 open alpha update but the change log on the forums doesn't have any statements on the Hawk EFM at all...

Now, on steam I still seem to have the SFM, but all the control-settings seem to indicate toward the EFM (toe brake axis assignments and keys for each brake for example)... Still the plane steers with rudder as per SFM...

So which do I have? And has anyone got a clue when the update is getting on steam? And yes, before you ask, I am opted in the open beta on Steam and all the previous updates have gotten through just fine. DCS has not updated on steam for the last 2 weeks.


If anyone has any solid leads on this I would appreciate them...

Cheers

The last couple of 1.5 Open Beta updates haven't been pushed to Steam and both Release and Beta Steam versions have only updated when ED has updated their 'Standalone' Release.

AFAIK the current Steam Beta Hawk still has it's SFM.

Thanks for the info. I wonder what has caused that... I mean it's quite pointless to have the open beta opt available on steam if you pretty much don't get anything out of it.

I'm afraid that's out of our hands and down to ED.

The icon on the DCS desktop will say 1.5.3 Beta EFM so you know what version you have.

Thank you. I'll be sitting tight and patiently waiting then. I couldn't fly the EFM version now even if I had it. Such is life at times
