Changes to IFF?
« on: March 05, 2019, 11:27:11 pm »
I glanced at the mini-updates thread, and I watched one of the videos by Matt on the new datalink stuff... but I must have missed something.  Now, when I lock a target on radar (STT), everything is a diamond.  Is there something different we have to do to turn on IFF?  I saw on the left back console there is an IFF panel, and I tried switching the middle switch from off to the middle and then the upper position, with no change.  Anyone else figure out how to get the IFF back to show square for friend and diamond for enemy?

You need to turn on IFF on the UFC.  It was not mentioned in Matt's video.

Ahh, ok, cool thanks MattE.  I’ll see if I can find the right switch. Edit - doh!  right in front in plain view lol.  Never had to turn it on before, so another example of where we have to watch out for things that are suddenly enabled with a new update.

Thanks..

Sounds like a good topic for Thursday.
