[NEED TRACK REPLAY]Selecting Selective Jettison on SMS page switches MFD weirdly


Recommended Posts

Version 2.5.6

 

When you select selective jettison after putting the SMS page on the left MFD without deleting it from the right mfd first by blanking it or setting a different page to the OSB, then the SMS page will be displayed on teh right MFD again.

 

Steps to reproduce:

 

1. Start Aircraft - SMS will be on the right MFD

2. Select any page on the left MFD

3. Select it again to go into page select mode

4. Select SMS - SMS should have disappeared from the right MFD as it happens in the F16 when you do that

5. On the left MFD SMS page select S-J via OSB 11

 

Expected behavior:

Selective jettison is displayed on the left MFD

 

Observed behavior:

SMS reappears on the right MFD and may or may not be selected, when selecting the S-J page is displayed there. When closing, SMS disappears from the right MFD again.

The F-16 uses a master mode system. You have 6 master modes, DFGT, MSL OVRD, A-A, A-G, NAV and SEL-JETT. All master modes are completly separeted from eachother. This means that no matter how you set up things in one master mode, it won't have any effect on the others. Think of the master modes as internet browsers. It doesn't matter what you do in the browers, it won't have any effect on the others. That is why the selective-jettison master mode doesn't keep the SMS page on the left. The master mode's sub menues are also limited to each master mode, meaning that you can setup missiles differently in the differnet master modes. This is why having multiple air to air combat master modes is really helpful. Hope that helped you :)

Since I first flew the F-16 in Falcon ~15 years ago I always wondered why SEL-JETT is its own master mode in the Viper. In all this time I never really understood the reason behind this?

DCS Panavia Tornado (IDS) really needs to be a thing!
