    I know some of you are a bit in the dark as to when the release version will be available for you to update to, and wondering what's taking so long, so I've copied in the patch notes detailing the bugfixes and some of the ongoing issues the developers have come across: Improved NVG picture.

DCS Ka-50 Added separate option slider for the helmet sight-ring displacement. DCS AJS-37 New feature! auto-generated data cartridge. Choosable in the kneeboard (# 6) The Auto-generated data cartridge is a cartridge with five pre-programmed waypoints, where the third waypoint will be located on the first expected enemy units. This waypoint will take into account projected target movement and if you follow Time on Target cues, you will intercept your target. This is a work in progress feature. You can now load a data-cartridge file stored in the saved games-folder without respawning. Details on this will be posted on the forums. New Export of ELINT-analysis data to Saved games-folder added! It will be located in the %SAVED_GAMES%/DCS_AJS37/ELINTData.info file. The DCS_AJS37-folder must exist for export to work.

    Thanks again... fly a quick mission in a P40 (damn I am rusty) but everything seems to work okay. No problems with anything that I can see but damn, I got a lot of key bindings to work on. I am retired so time zones are not an issue for me and if I can get enough practice in before then so I don't embarrase myself to badly I will see ya'll Wednesday. Later all~

    You must be doing something wrong. It's there! Thanks for the post, server had restarted, but there's no autologon procedure, so the game won't start ... Fixed now!

    Developer Diary from Han Hello everybody, Today we don't have a lot of news, we just want to tell you that the work on 3.001 update is near its end. We have 20 Career mission types working of 25 planned for the release. The most of the initially found issues are fixed and some tweaks are already in the place. To give you a general idea of the scale of this update, its change list will contain 90 items, nearly a third of which are significant changes and improvements. The sheer number of these changes means that after 3.001 release hotfixes will likely follow because there could be problems that couldn't be found by the testers. We're sure this teething period will be short. P-39L-1 cockpit is almost ready, perhaps we'll spend 1-2 days for final 'polishing' of its textures, but we can already show you its overall look. All other changes and additions planned for 3.001 release are finished. Therefore, we plan to release this humongous update in 2-3 weeks. We want to release it as soon as possible ourselves: all we're doing we're doing for you and your feedback is very important for us. But we need to make a bit more effort to give you the result that will not only be massive, but also good functioning, so these days will be spent on debugging and refinement of the new functionality.

    Just a heads-up to an old thread, but this mod has changed to the B.A.T. mod. Supposedly much more reliable and more inclusive: https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,53691.0.html
