    All debriefy and things

    Now when the voices magically appear in my headphones, my imagination no longer has to picture some version of 007 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣. Seriously guys, thanks. My current profile pic is me at 19 and me now just might break the forums again 😁!

    Dedicated DCS evening

    Adding my newbie voice to the chaos, I prefer CLoD by itself. As much as I am having fun messing with DCS, that old Hurricane calls to me (even if I have been missing a lot of Thursdays).

    Okay. Since I am happy now with the elliptical wing Spit, I don't see buying the clipped wing one. Thanks!

    Nevermind on the bomb load out, found it.. still can't find the clipped wing. Not that I really want to fly it much, but just want to be sure the update took correctly.. ok, so I will quit padding my post count now 😁!

    Spitty got bombs!

    OK, so the auto update did it's thing, but I don't see an option for the clipped wing. When I launch the instant action takeoff in the Spit, although I am seeing a graphical representation of the hard points to load tanks or bombs, my load out options still only show EMPTY as a choice. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

    Dedicated DCS evening

    Well I now have the F86 and F5E.. but I have not flown either except for a quick Buzz around the Nevada map in the 86. While I agree somewhat with what Kira says, personally I doubt if I will go beyond those two jets unless the F4 makes an entrance (along with a Vietnam map). But hey, I'm easy..you put up a server and if I have it and there is an aircraft I can fly, I will be there: or not πŸ˜‚! I prefer the props cause they are like me; old and slow and take a lot of "handling" to work right πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚!

    Models from your childhood

    Sad to admit, but models from my childhood came to inglorious end as targets to a new 22 caliber rifle. From age 10 to 18 I must have built 100s..no professional work like what y'all do, but they got better over time. Stacked on a 4ft wide, 8ft high, 2ft deep, 6 shelf metal monster. As I approached my time to leave home and go in the Air Force, my mom said to "move them out". Well a friend and I decided to take my models (even a quite nice floating, working, 24" long model of my dad's fishing boat) and his new rifle to a deserted beach (this was the early 60s in rural Texas) and "blow them up". Well 20 boxes of 50 each 22 long rifle ammo, we had a pile of plastic and a sunk boat(we cleaned up our mess). That was the end of my model building eraπŸ˜₯! My friend later on ended up in the Army in a rifle squad and credits coming home from 2 tours in Vietnam (to a small degree) to that target practice at the beach. Oh, and he built models to the quality level of y'alls work when he came home.

    Super pics...luv me some drag racing! I watch NHRA on the tube, but I wish they would show more of the lower classes along with the big guys! I grew up going to the "drags" at the old Houston, TX, strip in the 60s! Thanks for sharing!

    T-38 Talon

    In the "for what is worth" department, I am attaching some pictures of a desk model of an early T-38 Talon that I found at an antique shop in a small town about 30 miles from my home a few years back. Northrop used to give these out in the early `60s to squadron commanders, etc. I saw many on the desks of the flying officers I worked under during my stint as a simulator instructor from 1964 to 1975. I think I gave $25 for it and it stays displayed on a higher shelf in my living room.

    Problem Accessing Forums

    Is it just me or is anyone else having problems accessing the forums. If (and when) I can get it to log in, I cannot access the forums using the "Browse/Forums". I have to kind of back door my way around and can eventually get to where I can either read or post. I thought at first it was just a problem with my tablet version (Android) then I came to my PC using Windows 10 and I am having the exact problem. This started for me after yesterday's flying session. I see where others are still posting so I may be the only one having this issue. Thanks

    DCS F/A-18 Released to Client Stable version

    Continuing the saga. Flew the trusty Spit offline yesterday for about 4hrs. Got to the point where I could takeoff, fly the pattern, make a curving approach, land and repeat without changing aircraft 3 out of 4 times. Then I took on the Las Vegas Tour (which I crashed trying before) and made the entire thing only missing one gate and landed and only polished one wingtip. Maybe another 50-60 hrs and I will start to feel comfortable enough to go shoot at things 🀣! Onward and upward!

    Refresh works for me on every page except "Browse Forums". No biggie as I can always find a way in. You can try and hide from me but I will find you 🀣🀣🀣!

    Problem Accessing Forums

    I have been using Firefox and never had a problem. I just tried Chrome on my tablet and all I get is that the site is not working and can't connect. I got here by looking at content I started. I can do work arounds but still no joy on just browsing forums. Guess I got a USA to UK issue on my end. Maybe because of the 4th of July 🀣!

    DCS F/A-18 Released to Client Stable version

    After today's venture into online dogfight server, I can truly attest to the fact that I am not "ready for prime time". I am still trying to conquer the aircraft handling, engine management, etc., so my situational awareness ain't happening. So me thinks I will stick offline and get comfortable in the cockpits before I go out and be target practice for the foes. 7 takeoffs, 5 shoot downs, two landings one of which me and the AC lived thru. BoX, CLoD and 1946 for me πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ!

    T-38 Talon

    Dust? That's what the antique world calls "patina" πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ! Yeah, it was a tad dusty but I am really careful wiping it down as the decals are getting quite fragile.

    DCS F/A-18 Released to Client Stable version

    Didn't think about Reshade but that could be it. Never got it to work right anyway (won't respond to to whatever keys I use to turn it on or off) so I will just get rid of it. Other than that, running most everything high all is good at least off line. The problems I was having with lockups on the Normandy map seems to have gone away. I flew for a couple of hours and never had a problem today.

    DCS F/A-18 Released to Client Stable version

    Is anyone else getting that really strange colored screen just before you get the cockpit launch? Also, is the percentage of loading textures, terrains, etc., the new normal on 2.5.2 release? Just curious as nothing seems to be adversely affected.

    Wow... glad that in the end you got it sorted!

    T-38 Talon

    Probably so as they sure flew the heck out of them! Not sure if the flight time was cheaper than flying first class though 🀣!

    DCS 50% Off Sale!

    I now have (including the new stuff I bought today); Caucasus, Nevada and Normandy maps. P51, Spit, F5, F86. Also got a couple of campaigns for the 51 & Spit. Think I will start with learning the basics of the Spit first, then the F86, then the F5. There is only so much my mushy old brain can absorb so I think I am done with aircraft. The modern stuff would require more time that even I can give them. Plus I am not sure I have the brain power or reflexes. Carry on!
