  1. The Big Fat Aeroplane Video Thread!

    I know we have a video of this display already a few posts back but I found another with slightly steadier camera work and a bit less wind noise and thought you chaps might like to see it...

    Some info here worth knowing as I was ignorant and it may have been the cause of some of my less successful launches! https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=194183
  3. Spitfire Training Day

    Good show everyone, thanks for attending and bloody good job for making the progress you have - I know some you may feel that your takeoffs and landings are perhaps still a bit untidy but I came away from today confident you do have a firm grasp of the essentials and the rest will be a matter of finesse. That will come with practise, so keep getting in that glorious old girl and giving her a good workout!
  4. Spitfire Training Day

    Hi chaps, Been mooted to have a DCS Spitfire training day/evening but before I can commit to some time to do this I need your input on when the best time to hold this would be. I'm trying to best balance the availability of all people from all corners of the globe and also acknowledge that outside of standard DDz evening some have other commitments that don't look kindly on 'another evening in front of that damn computer!' Also will need to know which versions you can operate within (v1.5.7 or v2.1Alpha). Please vote and comment. Many thanks Fen
  5. Well I finally got round to it...

    ... and uploaded the GoPro footage to YouLube from my Spitfire flight: Its unedited so be warned there's not a huge amount of spectacle - no Dunkirk style cinematography here lads! - but points to note are the Takeoff @ 6:00; Don (the pilot) waving is hands in the front canopy @ 10:02 to indicate that yes, indeedy, Fenrir is flying the plane (gulp!) and some lovely sun gilded wings as we break out into clearer skies at 10:45. Steep turn over Leeds Castle @15:45 was flown by Don but as we steadied on a westward course he gave the airplane back. Flying over Brands Hatch motor racing circuit @21:21 when Don again takes control (wish he'd let me fly the fun manoeuvres!) @21:40 to perform a Victory roll! Then back home for tea and medals. Hope you enjoy watching it even half as much as I did being in it!
  6. The Big Fat Aeroplane Video Thread!

    Yes FT, it really, REALLY was.
  7. Spitfire Training Day

    Affirmative Dennis, evening our time, early afternoon yours. I have the whole afternoon as an option for Euro time zone types - or your morning - if required.
  8. Spitfire Training Day

    Ok chaps, committing to Wednesday the 30th August for this. I have a days annual leave so will be available most of the day for consultation. Will be hosting a 1.5.7 server and have plenty of hot start spitties available for those who need them!

  11. Spitfire IX template available

    Mucking around with the new template. Stock under skin and VH_Rock's excellent improved Roundel and Invasion stripe templates mashed together. Quick and dirty but I like it! Thanks ED and Rock.
  12. Spitfire IX template available

    For example, in an MP mission I have been building I spawned in an airframe looking identical to the one in the OP. By using the Lctrl+ ' menu I changed the skin to an RCAF D-Day late scheme but kept the codes. I then - still in the same airframe - changed again to the full stripe RCAF scheme and changed the codes to a rather more famous Spitfire: Cool feature huh? I can confirm that the host can disable the skin/code swapping feature as part of the server difficulty setting options.

    Lctrl+ ' That should bring up the rearming window Snack. It now has new options to change livery (skin) and also the code and serial letters. The skin above is actually only a blank with roundels, the codes are generated as on the fly and can be changed by users. For example, for the aircraft pictured above I simply typed '9GQMJ627' and it arrayed the letters and codes as shown. The first two characters are the two-digit squadron ID code, the third is the individual a/c letter and the remaining 5 are the serial number In 2.1 it works in both single and multiplayer, however, it is a function of the 'Ground Crew' menus and I can only be accomplished on the ground. I have noticed some multiplayer servers give you the ability to change skins and others disable the function.
  16. Spitfire Training Day

    Chris - 1.5.7 only went from Beta to Release version yesterday, so as of time of writing the OP it is current release version and should be at time of planned training.
  17. Bloody marvellous Nick - great job mate. Thank you very much!

  23. Mobo and Processor Replacement

    Thanks to my marvellous family and friends generosity on the B'day I'm able to consider a MoBo and processor upgrade. Now having sourced the bits (Intel Core I7-7700K 4.20 GHz, Gigabyte Z270P-D3 Intel Socket 1151 Motherboard and 16G of DDR4 RAM - cos the DDR3 RAM I have currently is incompatible, balls!) I'm reluctant to commit to purchase because I'm not sure how to proceed. The issue being that the existing Windows 10 install is to an Socket AM3 AMD chipset and Gigbayte Mobo; can I just disassemble the old, put the GFX card and current HD in the new, plug in the PSU and just let it sort itself out on load... or am I in for a whole world of pain? Your thoughts much appreciated.

    Courtesy of Jafa, whose name you may remember from Il-2 mod days. Oh boy.... Dunno about you chaps but I'm almost indecently aroused by these noises!
