DCS Series Flight Sims / Re: Updated the AKA campaign #2 / mission #1

FYI Rel, I put up my server afterwards on Thur and Dino joined it and he had the same delayed issue with the Harrier spawns ... but I then tried to spawn in to all the spawn points on the Tarawas (moving and static ships) and was able to spawn in fine into all 4 spots.   So I'm thinking it is either a client issue that doesn't impact the host ... or it is his client specifically.

The last part of the video series of me and Dino trying to do the Topgun Government Relations scene that ended .... well .... not so well.  Amusing.  Enjoy.

MattE, since you are the originator of the thread and thus have the modify rights, can you modify the original post to include all of the videos posted thus far like we have set up in the Hornet video library thread?

Yeah Silver I had a helluva time spotting the fighters visually.  I set my HSD to show the TID so I could see the RIOs radar to get a better idea where they were and it still didn't help.  But that problem (for me) isn't just an issue with the Cat.  I have a heck of a hard time finding air targets in general.

So I know a lot of us have picked up the Cat.  I'm curious where everyone is at with it. 

What have you focused on (pilot or RIO, or both)?
What things have you got down?
What things are you working on now?
What things do you have questions on?

This module will, without a doubt, require a lot more practice and training than most other modules to date.  So far there have been a lot of good videos (see the other thread with that listing).  But even with all those, it will still take practice.

Thus far I have focused exclusively on the pilot seat.
I have the startup sequence down and running pretty quickly now that I know what checks/tests can be cut out.
I've got airfield and carrier takeoffs down, and also 
ATA guns
ATG guns
CCIP bombing
Radio (manual and presets)
Once I started using bomb mode for ATA refueling I was able to take on 70% of a full load.  But this will need a lot more practice.
Landing at airfields isn't bad, but the carrier is another story. 
I just reviewed ILS system tonight and the ACL but haven't utilized it.

If it works on the ground and not in the air. it sounds like there is a PTT keybinding specific to its radio you need to use.

The last post was almost a month ago.  Are you still having problems?

DCS Series Flight Sims / Time for a formation flight
« on: March 13, 2019, 09:41:04 pm »
Ok.  We really Really REALLY need to have a AKA DCS formation flight now.


Whichever you got.  Let's pick a day and time and do this. 

DCS Series Flight Sims / Controls not responding bug
« on: March 13, 2019, 09:39:38 pm »
It appears after the latest update there is an occasionaly bug where one or more of your peripherals (stick, throttle, etc) will still work as far as their axis (pitch, roll, etc) but suddenly ALL buttons and hat switches on it stop responding.  I ran into this tonight.  I even unpluged and plugged back in my impacted devices to no effect.  I ended up having to close out DCS and relaunch before it would work again.  After that it didn't do it again.  But just be aware of this.  It sounds like a number of people on the forums had this happen to them.

I have nothing against this aircraft (honestly, wish they could have made a true DCS module out of it with a real flight model), but if we add this to a server will it still require all participants to have that mod?

DCS Series Flight Sims / Re: F/A-18 HARM TOO MOde

HARM TOO mode:

EW page - Ensure HUD is boxed
Master arm - on
Attack mode- ATG
Stores page- select HARM
Fly towards the radar target
Use the i key on your keyboard to cycle targets (if there is more than one present)
Once the correct one is boxed, hit the Uncage key (need to have this keymapped)
