    DCS Stable Release Version Update 19-09-18

    Updated.. thanks Tom!
  2. I'm in, but I have all modules and all but 3 aircraft as well as pre-ordered Bodenplatte. I agree that those that have none or only the bare minimum need to speak to this change.

    ...is Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness month, hence the change to my profile picture. It will go back to my ugly mug in October. That is all, carry on!

  8. True... I do remember flying one evening (my time) on a DF map created by a DD member..just don't remember who. TOAD was there so I will ask him.
  9. Maybe something like the great map set on the DD CLoD server? Not saying we set up a server, just using that as an example. Just throwing stuff out and seeing what might stick I am <in my best Yoda voice>.
  10. Why not just run dogfight type maps like what WOL runs? Have objectives for both sides to accomplish, make most if not all AC available so there is a lesser chance of folks getting "locked" out. I'll shut up now as I probably don't know what I'm talking about (as usual). And no, I have no idea how to accomplish the preceeding.

    Win 10 update...

    ...still swapped controller assignments in 1946. I know I was saying since I went to a powered usb hub that swapping was no longer an issue. It still isn't with all other games (DCS, CLoD, BoX), but between me changing joy sticks (going back to my CH from the Thrustmaster T.16000m) to get more buttons and the latest Win 10 update, scrambled 1946 good. No worries, it's all sorted again and we will see if the next update effects anything if I don't change joysticks in the midst of the update.

    Just me and my mask 😆!

    For those that may have one (or more) of these, other than the obvious, what is/are the advantage(s) (or lack thereof) of these models in game? The A model is $15 USD and the C model is $60 USD. Just curious at this point. Thanks!

    Thanks Fen! Exactly what I was looking for info wise. I know I said I probably would not go beyond what I have (F86-F5) but I like doing the mud moving thing now and then and the A10 would add an extra layer above the F5. Waiting on sale time to get the -C. Of course it would be an excuse to get the Warthog HOTAS 🤣🤣!

    Just some stuff
  17. Okay, color me ignorant, but the only JSGME I have is for 1946. I assume there is a different one for other games?

    Dedicated DCS evening

    Mondays, Fridays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Wednesdays....they are mostly all the same to me, but then again, I don't have a life to speak of anyway 🤣! You set it up and I will do my best to partake in the merriment!
  19. looks impressive!!!

    DCS Spitfire - Refining your technique

    Reviving an old topic. Tweaked on my control settings today, actually matched pitch, roll and rudder to Fen's original settings in this thread. I also put a little reverse curve in my throttle (don't ask how much, I forgot) to help me with torque control and poof, I made 4 landings without even a polished wingtip after yesterday morning's 5 out of 6 crashes on landing attempts. Of course, now that I put this in writing, I never land again and will be forced to bailout over the runway every time 🤣!

    Finally got around to taking it for a short spin. Need to tweak on my in game controls, but took off, flew around for a bit, flew a pattern and landed without breaking anything. Like riding a bicycle. Except for the radar and guns (And a pot load off extra buttons) it was just a single seat T-38. Felt at home. May never do much with it, but it will be a nice change now and then.

    Upgrading - The fool's way

    Just tried the bottleneck site. They said my CPU is a bottleneck for my GPU. Suggested I upgrade to a Ryzen 5. Sure thing if they will buy it and a new motherboard for it to work with 😁. But one day I may upgrade to a newer Intel CPU that will work on my existing MB, but not now.

    Graphics Cards

    Prices are dropping like proverbial rocks as the next gen (1100 series) are getting closer to release. GTX 1080s ( good ones) can be hard for under MSRP. I almost pulled the trigger on a Zotac 1070 70ti, hesitated until it went off sale only to see it retailing less than the sale price. Looking now at Gigabyte GTX 1080s for what I was willing to pay for the 1070 ti . The 1080 Tis are still high. Think I will wait a couple of weeks and track the prices between Newegg and Amazon. I think I have my temp issues with my 1060 under control in DCS so I can wait a bit. CLoD, BoX and 1946 put no strain on the 1060. But I also want a 1440p 144hrz or 4k 27-32" monitor so I am gonna need a stronger card to keep the FPS where I want them. May strain my I5-6600, but my older B150 motherboard may not handle to much more... ain't it fun?

    Graphics Cards

    Well I think I am gonna be happy with my monitor and graphics card choices. Barring any malfunctions everything is working out as I hoped it would. Running DCS on high/ultra settings, the lowest FPS I saw on the Normandy map was ~80fps and the highest temps were ~64C. That's about double the FPS and 10 degrees cooler than my GTX 1060. I think I will quit boring y'all with this stuff now, but DCS brought the "pseudo techie" out in me. At least now I can concentrate on learning how to fly, shoot and bomb! Carry on.

    Storm of War

    After seeing my non-success as of late on airmanship in the DCS Spit (and for that matter the P51 now that I have not flown it in a bit), I think I will sit this round out. Don't want to be a drag or hindrance on DD in the SOW campaign. After I get finished upgrading my system, I will get back to practice in both AC. And Fen, if you set up that practice range for ground attack, hopefully I can get in some practice on that as well.
