DCS Update Patch Notes Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Hot fix did not fix the CAT issue. Take off from the carrier and land again. Try to connect to CAT 3 and it will throw you around and damage your jet.

 

It also takes multiple U key hits to connect to the CATs. Also, that text on the left and right screen is still there. Main: Static:

 

Didn't fix much in my option. I fact it seems to be worse. Nevada performance is awful and unplayable out of Nellis around Vegas. Everywhere else not bad but Nellis "Unplayable".

 

Aircraft still floating in Multiplayer sessions in VR the remembrance of a test menu on the screen. Someone forget to take it out. Never seen this before?

Tanker now responds with altitude and airspeed when asking for rejoin. :thumbup:

 

This is one of the small changes very much appreciated! ajmug.png

 

And it wasn't even on the list pc-fcheeks.png

 

----------------------------------------------------------------

 

Edit: My performance went up a bit, doing around 30fps now. Still not the 45 I had, but better than just 22fps. And almost stutter free.

 

And because of the performance issues I just checked the VR options to see if something might have changed (especially PD), and I've come across this:

Didn't test it yet (was off initially), but when it does what I suppose it to do, this board doesn't have a big enough font setting to say...

 

Thank you! 01-tia_claps.gif

This will make using the VR controllers so much easier as we don't have to carefully watch where we'd place the right one to rest anymore and not worry about it triggering any switches. Definately the best of those undocumented changes for me icon_exclaim.gif

Anyone noticed how the ground AI behaves much better now? Pathfinding seems to finally work and they avoid trees as well. Man, I like this patch after the hotfix & am extremely glad to see things MOVING again :thumbup:

I've got a few hours on 2.6, flew some dusk mission around Dubai. Lighting is amazing. Huge Huey bug; it keeps crashing (my Huey, not the game). This has nothing to do with me being a Huey novice, I'm sure. It's worse when I come in to crash...er...land.

 

 

Seriously, in my little corner of DCS, 2.6 is working out nicely. Others...maybe different, but no complaints here on my old machine. New box isn't quite ready yet.

Yea from my point of rig, DCS 2.5.6 in the actual state is running nice with good lighting and superb looking Ka-50.

 

I wonder why so many Users seem to have problems with 2.5.6, whilst others seem to have improvements which would then lead to two groups: the 2.5.5 conservatives and the 2.5.6 progressive party?!?

Solved!

 

After latest update 2.5.6 to beta the visibility to see objekts like tanks on ground is worse.

I made a mission long before update to 2.5.6 with 4 Shermans moving to a position and then I am trying to divebomb them with BF109.

Before update I was able to see them on ground from 3000m! Now I cant find them from above 600m!

I have not changed anything in video settings in game!

In video I am paddlocked on to the tanks and altitude is from 2500m to about 875m! And no tanks visible!!:ranting:

 

 

I did test it on DSC World 2.5.5 to and I can see the tanks from 3000m altitude!! Tiny as hell, but visible!

No problem there!

 

This works fine now with latest update!!

Thanx!:thumbup:

We (TFK) gave it a good run last night with about 18 people joined and it went very well! No one dropped out, server had no issues apart from a couple of times people getting credit for kills when they hadn't even fired a missile. Overall it was a fantastic multiplayer experience. Thanks for getting us back into it so quickly ED! :thumbup:

would be nice for the in-game scores to be somewhat accurate again. some of us can't sleep at night without knowing how many kills/deaths we have.

 

I wish they'd just disable that so people would worry about weather they accomplish the mission and survival instead.

Clustermunitions is just another way of saying that you don't like someone.

 

I used to like people, then people ruined that for me.

Anybody else getting "window is out of focus" in orange writing on the multiplayer sever screen ? Maybe something I am overlooking ?

Yes, that's something like a new service message I assume which goes away until after everything is loaded correctly and DCS is ready to go in VR.

Reminds me of me flying with a buddy. He literally racks up 4-5 times the kills I do, but he dies at least as often in one evening while I don't do that even once... rdlaugh.png

 

Edit: My performance went up a bit, doing around 30fps now. Still not the 45 I had, but better than just 22fps. And almost stutter free.

 

Well, after some more flying I can say the stutters are still there, but not totally as bad as they've been just the version before. They're very prominent when flying very fast over landscape, again. This time, I turned out to the sea (literally I flew ~300 from Senaki and at around 100nm DME I turned left to come back home from the west) and as soon as the landscape totally vanished in the haze just like 15-20nm behind me (if wishes were viewing distance!), the stuttering completely disappeared.

I get it regularly when my DCS is not my active window, i.e. Alt-Tabbed or on the desktop. I find it quite useful to avoid clicking buttons on the HOTAS after changing some sound settings. It consistently goes away when I click on DCS's window.

Anyone else having issues with the Radio menu buttons sometimes not working? I posted it the bug section, but I'm wondering if anyone else has seen it.

 

Hit \ to bring up the menu, and sometimes the buttons work as usual F8 ground crew. Other times nothing happens, and yet other times it switches to external views like the F buttons normally do. It also seems to happen more online than offline, but its done it on both. And the doubly weird thing is that its not consistent, it sometimes works and sometimes not on the same online server and airframe.

I've had that in the campaign I'm currently playing - I thought it was just the campaign. I'll tell my wingmen to do something, and nothing will happen. Then I'd do the same again a couple seconds later, and they would respond.
