IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / BoX campaign 2/8/2019
« on: February 08, 2019, 06:10:00 pm »
Hi Guys,

Was trying to schedule the BoX campaign for tonight but the BoX campaign manager stopped and I couldn't get to it.  I'm still in a call at work so I can't jump on the AKA server to see what's going on (that I can figure out at least :) ).  I'll try to check it out later, sorry...

DCS Series Flight Sims / Through the Inferno
« on: February 04, 2019, 08:58:48 pm »
Finally downloaded Through the Inferno (all except the Normandy versions), and played it some (Caucasus) last night.  Great mission!  I didn’t make any configuration changes, and the ground and air target randomness was nice.  Didn’t know what to expect.  The AFAC drones are lazing ground units automatically (don’t need to communicate with them) and have targets identified with red smoke (you can check for targets via F10 menu).  Also, you can call up pairs of fighters on either side or ground units anywhere by adding markers in the F10 map and typing “-create...”, which is cool (even to bring up opposing AI to fight each other :) ).

The mission uses spawn points so it can be played as single or multiplayer.  Might need to copy/paste spawn points for MP, to have more than one slot per plane type.  In any case, I recommend checking it out to have in your mission play list:

Wondering if any one else (Ram, you fly the Viggen a lot) is having issues with the Collimator sight for the Viggen when trying to search for targets etc.. mine is acting strange.

First, after I switch the armament dial to the RB75 and have the mode in NAV (or ANF), I un-safe the weapon and the sight shows up.. but soon after, it starts flashing, which makes it difficult to slew and lock with T1/TV.  Also, after that, when I fire, the sight is supposed to close (go dark), until you safe and unsafe the weapon again.  But sometimes it just keeps flashing.  I am able to fire the Mav, but the flashing makes it difficult.

Anyone else having issues with the flashing Collimator sight in the Viggen?  I've got fairly recent NVidia drivers, so it shouldn't need another update.  Wondering if it's just me...

I posted over on the ED forum:

Anyone else having issues getting the F-5E dropped GBU-12’s to track the laser over Nevada?

No problems in the Caucasus, but hardly ever works in Nevada.  Haven’t tried the PG map yet.

DCS Series Flight Sims / TGP for Hornet soon
« on: January 02, 2019, 10:38:29 am »

Looks like the Hornet will use two targeting pods - one is the same as the A10C (Litening), so it will get that sooner, then the originally planned pod (ATFLIR).  So then we can finally self laze for the AGM65E's and the GBU's  >:D

Here’s a post I made on the TAW forum regarding my opinion of the TAW paratrooper situation, for what it’s worth... :)

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / @Scorp - AKA BoX Servers Stats
« on: November 24, 2018, 04:20:35 pm »
S! Scorp,

I noticed the stats pages for Expert doesn't seem to be showing recent activities accurately.  For example, I noticed last night that there were quite a few pilots on, but if you look at the missions it shows 0 connected, so it seems somethings' not quite right.  I logged in via RDP and I can see all of the stats command boxes are up and running, so I'm wondering if there's some config issue?

DCS Series Flight Sims / Community A-4E mod now available!
« on: November 18, 2018, 11:18:32 am »
Go here to get it:

NOTE:  Two things:

First:  While the readme says to put it here:

C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Saved Games\DCS.openalpha\Mods\aircraft

You should substitute the "DCS.openalpha" with whatever version you are using (e.g. DCS.openbeta), otherwise DCS won't see the aircraft.

Second:  After adding this mod, I jumped into Blue Flag Caucasus and DCS passed the integrity check, and I was able to jump into an AV8B/NA :).

DCS Series Flight Sims / Hornet mini update today 10/18/18
« on: October 18, 2018, 01:38:51 pm »

Update time!

As mentioned in a recent newsletter, we are pushing hard for JHMCS with AIM-9X support, Maverick, FPAS page, and corrected A/A antenna logic after undesignated button lock release. All is looking good, but the AGM-65F and G versions will unfortunately not be ready until next month.

We, for the most part, have four guys working on Hornet systems and here is what they are working on:
1-   JHMCS. Afterward he moves on to the HARM.
2-   AGM-65E. Once done, then AGM-65F and G.
3-   A/A radar antenna. When complete, then LTWS.
4-   FPAS page. Then after that, then probably “soft lock” IFF or Data Link / SA page.

The Hornet systems team is working full time on the Hornet, but some of the items are complex and take time. No one is slacking off.

Once the Maverick and HARM are fully functional, we’ll start work on the second Hornet mini-campaign.

We have ten new training missions in work that include:
IFR Airfield Approach
Carrier Taxi and Takeoff
Carrier CASE I Recovery
A/A Gun
A/G Gun
CCIP Bombs
CCRP Bombs

You may be saying to yourself, “but Wags, you forgot CASE II,III and AIM-7!” Negative Ghostrider, we need those items to be completed before we can make the training mission for them (full comm for CASE II,III and HOJ mode for the Sparrow).

Supporting tech like the A/G radar (we lost our original engineer on this) and an improved FLIR rendering system are in work and are fundamental to A/G radar implementation and the ATFLIR.

So things are moving forward at a good clip, but this is a very complex product and it will take time.

Thank you for your patience!


IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Normal and Expert AKA servers
« on: October 13, 2018, 11:55:38 am »
S! all,

I had some back and forth correspondence with Scorp and he gave me some hints to look out for.  I think the issue with the Normal and Expert servers is that their campaign status was "completed", which is why they wouldn't start.  After getting more info on how to reset the campaigns, both servers appear to be up and running.  I think for Expert the same Kuban mission runs over and over, so I'm not sure how it can be completed.  However, I have a better feel for how to reset the normal/expert campaigns if the server doesn't seem to be starting again.

Thanks to Scorp for responding to me during his trip to Ireland :).

Have fun. S! Rel
