Thanks for trying Ram
Did not work though..

What kind of format does these LUA files require? ANSI, unicode, utf8?

default is ANSI

PS yes removed second monitor and rebooted before installing
 yes the links that show actually work.

DCS Series Flight Sims / what is this?
« on: November 19, 2018, 07:23:08 am »
After 3 attempts at un-installation and installation, each of which took many hours, I am still presented with this display when the game starts..

Please notice that I have no modules and more importantly, no access to any of the icons above, like settings, etc..  The game interface is squashed and many buttons are missing. Has anyone in DCS world seen anything like this?

When uninstalling, every file left behind was deleted, including the game folders.

NVIDIA control panel shows one display only ( as it should be) .

I simply cannot figure out why this is happening to after completely uninstalling the game.

It was ok on the first install then I went in and was looking for a way to make the display larger, stumbled across multi monitor and FOV selections somewhere, that is all I remember.  Because the game was completely uninstalled, more than once how can this be? It seems DCS keeping some settings persistent on an off site place that I cannot access, thus I am screwed. and understandably, quite annoyed. This DCS installer seems to me to be a little off the charts.

Brings out the Tank in me ;)

Greys got something going on there.

Yesterday his whole system (even windows desktop_)  started using his on board graphics card instead of the slot mounted one he been using for years.

If you get a chance Grey uncheck that sucker in steam settings "Enable steam cloud sync for apps that support it." )

right click steam in lower right tray, select settings and then cloud to get at this checkbox.

Thanks for helping Gos !

Yeah I realize now this is COD related i nthat 1946 and BOS does nothing even remotely like this.

Thus, the devil is in the details of COD and how it functions.

One thing I noticed is that NVIDIA container and other Nvidia's uses port 443, same as microsoft antimalware service executable.
Thing is other apps use 443 as well so its probably not a lead.

I just updated NVIDIA to latest greatest
Also did Track IR4. Tried in COD and it was still there so far no luck yet.

Symptom wise, its as if either game or NVIDIA pauses updating the display while the actual sim runs underneath without pause.

I need my grasshopper grandpa here to help me think about this.

only the wife on the PC downstairs. She surfs gossip feeds and such, not really bandwidth hogging.  How do I catch whats going on in task mgr?
My guess (all i have at the moment) is somehow related to TrackIR4 ver
not playing nice with Nvidia ver,  But alas its a long shot of a guess ;)

TrackIR software ver

NVIDIA control panel  ver 8.1.940.0

GTX 1050 Ti driver version  388.13
4GByte card

There must be error logs being updated somewhere in windows I wonder how to find them  if they exist.

Ok, So if anyone has any ideas I'm all ears.

About every 2-5  mins or so a long pause sets in like a screen freeze, followed by the update of where my plane has moved to.
Pause time varies from a few secs to over 30. It always recovers.

I'm thinking "format C:\ :might do the trick?

There seems to be a problem with the game itself connecting to any servers!
 We've been seeing this Friday (for our campaign) and Saturday nights although a listing actually did appear during the day saturday (as if  it was always there) Seems that USA is affected more than overseas, (my guess.)  Some one on the forums said TAW had players in it. If true, how they are able to connect is beyond me.

Terrific job getting the server up and running so fast Rel!

I'm sure everyone here agrees !

Reset good.

Especially, no more pitch dark missions in prime time, right?

Even if not. its Ok with me.


I am amazed there seems to be no switch for making sure campaign runs daytime missions only.

The last three nights the test server has been been serving up basically only pitch dark missions.

Just curious, Is this the only setting available and is it really set to false now?

# If early morning and late evening night time should be included in missions. Searchlights give a nice ambience, but they heavily affects gameplay, as AA is inactive after searchlights are destroyed.
    LongWorkDay: false

Yeah , too much of my hard earned money they ask for,  to have this hobby extravagance.
Otherwise great product!

Me too.

Perhaps this has been done before.  We should all look around and see if mini campaigns are available.

I know that setting up a campaign is a real pain, lotsa loose ends have to be tied up before launch.

In the past it was a love of game that made it all work. Now, with BOS getting traction and all, the work of setting up and testing 1946
may be getting tougher to bear.

I originally voted 10, but maybe 12 to 15 is needed as a minimum.
