  1. Today
  2. I'm fixing to try it in Windows 10, and I want to carry over my settings etc. from Win 7 For the life of me I can't seem to make the right search criteria over on their site to get the answer. If I'm going to look dumb for asking I'd rather keep it in the family 😉

    Thanks DD_Arthur for the welcome.I take it he would have been well trained at Exeter? When I started I did have an open faced helmet.However I retired with a full set of leathers and a flip up lid. Times move on. What a great picture.

    That's good to know Bill, I am also a gentleman of leisure so I should be able to fit in with your times,before others start to appear. I don't think my wife quite knows what I have let myself in for😀 I noticed some very interesting two wheeled beasty in some of your gallery pics.I used to own bikes for many years and ride one at work. Except mine had blue lights and had a siren😈

    I think I am about 5-6 hours time wise behind your part of the world. Being retired and pretty much a homebody, allows me to join the fun in the early afternoon my time most days. I have put Fen to bed at midnight his time many times 😂!

    If any Dogz who have not got a MSFFB stick want it then pass it on. If not, then Yes please Mick! I've got one but I've been looking for a spare for a while now. While we're at it.....I've got FT's old Logitech G940 stick and throttle unit. They both work ok. I believe Jabo has the pedals for it too. Perhaps we can re-unite them and....er.....I dunno, something beautiful can happen, lol. Jabo; do you want the complete set?

    Thanks for the welcome Bill from Sutherland, the Northern Highlands of Scotland.I gathered from seeing Fen's YouTube footage he would be worth talking to.I didn't realise he was part of a Forum flight group. So here I am! Yes,early days for flying the DCS Spit.Takeoff and landing reasonable.Spotting bandits Oh dear.I blame the monitor.A good reason perhaps to get a new one! I also dabble a bit with the F-86. I haven't looked at your time difference yet, but I assume its a late or early flight slot UK time?

    Just wondered if anyone would like my Sidewinder Joystick for free ? It worked just fine for 46 but has a centring issue in BOS. Probably nothing wrong with the stick itself.

    Ok thanks, I will pass on the info Arjen... He is a plasterer at the moment but is ex Army and has been doing some bodyguard work for the last few years with a view to running training courses with another ex Army guy.

    Welcome to the fun Mark. I can surely attest to Fen's (Tom)skill as a mentor. I can takeoff and land (and on rare occasions dogfight) in the DCS Spit (and other ACs because of his tutelage). I am a newbie to the Dogz but I've felt "at home" with all of them from the beginning. So come on in, the water is just fine. BTW: Howdy from Texas, USA!
  16. Sure wish they had left the Devicelink code in BOS

    Well, an MS-Windows license and an MS-Office license would cost over £150 so ... you an call it a challenge then Work related stuff? What is his occupation? A laptop? Is this for the mobility of it, or lack of space? If he's not gonna go on line, and thus not sharing any stuff, he could be very happy with a rather very old and cheap laptop, with an ancient version of Ubuntu on it, combined with OpenOffice... both are free, so, he could be done with like £50 for a really old laptop with a bad battery?

    Good evening Fen, Thank you for welcome and all the info.Two years ago with no available broadband here in the frozen North! We had to use satellite broadband. I had started flying on the SOW server and realized thanks to 'Joker ' that my ping reading was no good.COD froze with more than two aircraft!!£££$$$%%% Move on two years and Mobile broadband means that Redtail is back in business again, but still no BT broadband. We are 6 miles from our exchange box! Do I need to know the Teamspeak channel you operate on? I have the SOW one but that is all.Which map do you tend to use? I noticed the server list at the top of the forum, but they all require passwords. I look forward to joining you online and in the air soon. Mark.

    Hi Redtail, and a hearty welcome to the kennel! Firstly, to address the status of Storm of War: SoW development in DCS is best described currently as slow but steady - part of the issue is the various DCS bugs that have crept in vis-a-vis labels and cockpit transparencies recently, another is them hanging on in the hope of seeing more WW2 content to flesh out the environment and developing passable workarounds where possible in the interim, and a further delay in the hope of the release of the promised revisions to the DCS WW2 planes damage models. It's coming together but we will have to be patient. Regards Spitfire training, I am always more than happy to provide mentor ship. Our Primary DCS night is Monday from 2030BST/GMT, and we often have a sneaky DCS fix, generally at or about 2230BST/GMT after our Thursday Cliffs of Dover session. Otherwise, I can often be found online in DCS between 2200-2230 on other nights, depending how knackered I am from the rigors of the day! At any of these times I will be happy to give you any assistance you require to further refine your Spitfire airmanship! Regards The DangerDogz, come in, make yourself at home and enjoy all we have to offer; as a rule we don't take ourselves too seriously here (if at all!) and there's a wealth of characters, knowledge, entertainment and plain old fashioned good-will round these here parts. If you're in to other forms of flight sims, we do Il-2:1946, Il-2: BoX, Cliffs of Dover and some rather insalubrious types even mess around in Rise of Flight still, and whilst some of these titles are showing their age, an evening in them with the Dogz is still guaranteed some hilarity, bawdiness and delightful fun - you'd be remiss if you didn't check them out sometime. I've had the privilege of being introduced to some of the finest people I know by joining the Dogz and I wouldn't be without them (but don't tell them that). Looking forward to catching you online soon, Regards, Fen (AKA Tom, AKA Tomsk, AKA Britney)

    Hi fellas, a good mate of mine is after a second hand laptop. He can go up to £150 and would like Windows office on it. He only wants to use it for work related stuff and probably won’t even go online with it. I said I would ask you guys and see what the response was, thanks....... Mick.

    Thanks Crash for the welcome. That's what I was hoping.Having seen a couple of Fenrir's vids I thought I had to track him down. I hadn't fallen over your forum before so I was very pleased to find it.

    Welcome Redtail I am sure Fen will be very pleased to have another DCS flyer and he will certainly give a lot of helpful hints on all matters DCS

    Hello Fenrir and to all, I have just joined the forum and I am very interested in taking part on the SOW server.However some assistance/advice flying the Spitfire in a training session would be very good. Being retired makes life easier when sorting suitable times re training sessions. I look forward to flying with others rather than AI pilots! Thanks.

    Thanks mate, I am afraid that beneath this resilient exterior lies the soul of a soft squishy dad who is going to miss his ( not so little) buddy immensely! Pass me a tissue Tito.........

  28. Bugger - I probably won't be back in Cov until about 7pm so it looks like our tracks won't cross tomorrow. I hope it goes well for you all tomorrow and that Mark has a great time at Uni here in Coventry - and that Mr & Mrs P don't go getting all emotional.
