  1. I think your issue is really not having both flaps and DLC down and on at the same time. Try if it works like that.
  2. Welcome and thank you for your feedback, it is much appreciated! I can reply to some of your points already: @1: This is difficult, because there is a state where an aircraft in DCS is considered alive, damaged and dead, to simplify it. The "dead" often comes only after complete explosion or impact with the ground. So if you kill a bandit high, just by the fact that he is burning, Jester cannot tell that the bandit is dead. Note how the splash call is independent from that, because the missile or bullets, etc hitting an aircraft can be told by Jester. Unfortunately we cannot make this a condition though, because a hit does not imply that the bandit is necessarily dead. So, I will carefully say that this is a DCS limitation we'll have to live with until we find a better way maybe altogether. But I completely agree that it is annoying. @2: Some time down the road we plan on expanding Jester with checklists, readouts, etc, some very small stuff like that is in there already, like reading the altitude on landbased runways, etc. But we do plan on expanding here, once time allows. @3: This unfortunately is not possible. The next launch button does not skip through priorities, as it is often falsly assumed. It in fact sets the hooked target as the new priority one target. So a next launch button will do nothing for the crew, unless a logic to hook a specific target is implemented. This we are looking into as well along the Jester overhaul. @4: Maybe we can add some extra options in the future for this, in the meantime you can change it as suggested in the posts above. Thanks again for your feedback!
  3. I would recommend this as a next step as well, clear the input folder in the main install mods/f14 folder (and additionally again in saved games, so both are clean, manually remove and backup any files or folders in it), then run a repair. We'll also take a look on our side if we find anything to be a likely culprit. My apologies that you have to experience inconveniences with it.
  4. This time I took my time to reply to you just in time about whether or not it is time:
  5. click on it, and then click clear. the red exclamation mark should go away. it usually indicates conflicting inputs, for example with the UI layer, etc. so may not even be Tomcat specific, but that something is bound elsewhere (like UI layer) on the WH throttle that conflicts with Tomcat inputs or vice versa. If you try to bind the exact same again, it should say which input. If it does not matter to you, just map the new one, and should be fine.
  6. It's just a first badge of inputs delivered, there are many more to follow in the next patches. I'll try to keep in mind the oxy stuff for the RIO to be prioritized.
  7. Adding an MF axis that lets you set the MFs to a proportional percentage of your axis was a mistake on our part and will be removed again. We added a lot of inputs specifically tailored for homepit builders, and overlooked the consequences stemming from the unrealistic MF engagement. Our apologies.
  8. And just to be clear, both flaps need to be down and DLC engaged for the coupler light to come on.
  9. DL set correctly? If yes, show me a video/ track please, and pls paste your mission. Works 10/10 on my end.
  10. You cannot have DLC without flaps down, and if I am seeing correctly, your flaps are not down, just the MFs? IIRC you need to extend flaps fully for ACLS to work.
  11. To engage AT you have to be between 75 and 90% RPM, else it will not engage.
  12. DCS: F-14 Tomcat by Heatblur Simulations - May 18th 2022 Complete ACLS overhaul: ACLS will engage correctly within parameters now and fly a stable approach. Safe engagement should be considered within 2.5° of the glidepath and 1° of the glideslope (+/-300 feet) at or around 3nm behind the carrier. Glideslope has been adjusted from 3° to 3.5°. Fixed VDI Caution Lights for ACLS. Improved Autothrottle. Fixed Authothrottle not disengaging with weight on wheels. Synchronised disengagement in GT+ALT hold. Fixed a small error in pitch dampening. Fixed DLC not disengaging at MIL power with weight on wheels. Added new DCS ACLS and Datalink to the Forrestal (for the F-18, not for the Tomcat). Fixed ICLS point of origin for the Forrestal. Adjusted runway azimuth for the Forrestal. Forrestal: fixed taking damage when planes land on the deck. Fixed Sparrow BRSIT: flood antenna only enabled after launch, and short LTE for first missile. Fixed Jester tuning bad radio frequency during carrier cold start. New SetCommand for Jester: arg 10015 - tune AN/ARC-182 to a selected channel with the value 0.XX where XX is the two-digit channel number arg 10016 - tune TACAN channel. The value should be constructed using the following guide: “0.XXXZ” - use negative (-0.XXXZ) values for A/A and positive for T/R. “XXX” is the three-digit channel number (001, 010, 100, etc.). Z is 0 for using X-mode, and 1 for using Y-mode. example: “0.0630” is channel “63X, T/R” and “-0.0081” is channel “8Y, A/A”. Added LANTIRN external draw arguments for Mission Creators: The following args can be used to obtain the components of a unit vector aligned with the LANTIRN sensor: LANTIRN_HeadX = 1023, LANTIRN_HeadY = 1024, LANTIRN_HeadZ = 1025. Fixed pilot being able to disarm the RIO’s ejection seat. AIM-54A now has a white default texture and uses a texture separate from the AIM-54C. Fixed texture seam running along top of AIM-54C. Added additional mesh detail to the gun tube. Re-textured gun tube internals. Improved modelling of TCS camera model. Retextured TCS pod internals. Improved TCS glass for a more accurate, coated look. Increased reflectivity of HUD lens in exterior view. Lower sidewinder station (shoulder) pylon extension texture added. Lower sidewinder station launcher now properly represents a LAU-7. Added textures to lower sidewinder station LAU-7. Added texture for lower shoulder sidewinder station. Fixed tacan presets for IA Case 3 missions and added Case3 briefing image. Changed Normandy IA Case 3 missions to use CV-59 Forrestal. Fixed AI blocking catapults in Marianas IA Mission Op. Clay Dagger. Fixed INS mode switch bindings not being functional. Fixed VHF/UHF ARC-182 Volume Pilot Inc/Dec keybindings. Added “_(name)” for default.lua in mods/inputs.

  13. Dear all, as usual we would like to kindly ask for your feedback regarding the latest patch. As always, thank you for your great input and continued support! DCS: AJS-37 Viggen by Heatblur Simulations Fixed jamming not functioning properly in multiplayer. Fixed CTD with >92 data cartridges in DCS_AJS37 folder. Master volume knob now changes sidewinder tone volume. Removed the mobile-ground-crew relocation from the kneeboard. Fixed kneeboard selection of ground crew RB04 right group target. Mirrors can now be toggled by clicking them. Fixed errant polygons in the speed indicator gauge. Added rotation to the altimeter knob. Added 60° and 90° markers to the ADI. Fixed Bx7 not showing in the correct place when in ANF and Bx8 selected. Fixed Bx6 not being able to move. Bx6 will now correctly move along the line drawn from the aircraft to Bx7 and from Bx7 to Bx8, while also not being allowed to get too close to the aircraft, Bx7 or the target. Fixed RB-15F not descending at the Bx6 waypoint. Fixed Grans Lines (ingress lines) showing by default. Slightly reduced radar screen glass size to prevent the artificial horizon line from escaping the screen boundaries. Fixed flight director needles on FLI37 hiding behind the 'aircraft wings'.
  14. Dear all, as usual we would like to kindly ask for your feedback regarding the latest patch. As always, thank you for your great input and continued support! Our apologies again that the pilot body could not make it into this patch. We hope that the many improvements will bring you still plenty of joy though, particulary the ACLS, new abilities for mission creators, and many long asked for inputs for both pilot and RIO.
