  2. RCN Scooter livery for Community A-4E Skyhawk by 'bulico' I have the most up to date DCS 2.7 open beta and news A-4E mod v2 (downloaded Jan 07) and began flying again after a long absence. Flew off the USS Forestall and successfully landed on the carrier. I love Canadian content so I tried the RCN livery created by 'bulico' created in Aug 2020 which did work fine but now does not. The words 'missing texture' can be seen on the fuselage and there are rectangle patches like tetris. Any ideas how I could fix? (I know nothing about creating livery files but would really like to this RCN livery working). Link to the original livery here: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3312072/ Solution found thanks to 'plusnine' on the a-4e community discord channel. Decided to continue the post to help anyone else with similar livery issues. The solution is to edit the original RCN Scooter livery description file with notepad++ 1. First make a back up copy of your description file and save it somewhere safe. I renamed mine 'rcn scooter description' just to be safe. 2. Find a livery in the A-4E mod package (openbeta/mods/aircraft/A-4E-C/liveries/A-4E-C) and load the 'description' file into notepad ++ 3. I used livery called 'Trainer USN NFWS Gray' 4. For RCN Scooter description replace "Bottom", ROUGHNESS_METALLIC, "fus_bot_v472_RoughMet_hi" with 5. Trainer USN NFWS Gray description "Bottom", ROUGHNESS_METALLIC, "a4e_ext_bottom_RoughMet_lo" 6. For RCN Scooter description replace "Top", ROUGHNESS_METALLIC, "fus_top_v494_RoughMet_hi" with 7. Trainer USN NFWS Gray description "Top", ROUGHNESS_METALLIC, "a4e_ext_top_RoughMet_lo" 8. Save the description file for the RCN Scooter. 9. Test it out. Hopefully it works for you. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Original RCN Scooter with 'missing texture' Fixed RCN Scooter with edited description using files from 'Trainer USN NFWS Gray'

  4. DCS Crashing on 2nd mission load: Once a again a potential success in resolving DCS crashing on second mission load but don't get too excited. Did a DCS repair and restarted the pc then went into settings and turned off SSAA SSLR SSAO. Restarted the pc then loaded DCS and was able to load 3 instant action missions in a row, exited the ran DCS again and loaded another 3 instant action missions. Think there is somebody in the thread above who did this and it worked for them. Note that my clouds are set to low. SSAA Super Sample Anti-Aliasing [may have been turned off already as MSAA on]. SSLR Screen Space Local Reflections. SSAO Screen Space Ambient Occlusion [new to DCS 2.7 and NOT in manual. Involves the GPU and real-time ambient occlusion. Whatever that means?]. Time will tell. Update: Lasted less than an hour then 2nd mission crashes continued. Below is my options screen to provide a visualization. Settings are bottom left.
  5. May take some witchcraft to solve this mind boggling DCS crashing puzzle.

  7. DCS crashing on 2nd mission load. Somebody created a Facebook poll this issue but so many do not use FB. This is a simple poll creation website that is accessible to everyone if somebody wants to create a poll and share on discord. https://www.strawpoll.me/

      Personally I would have the tail flash the same angle as the leading edge of the fin.

      Yes it does look a little odd. The creator probably did a bit of copying and pasting from other skins.

  9. Re DCS crashed on 2nd mission loading. May 16 3pm. Sadly these crashes have returned. It is really really frustrating. I read Ironhand's recent comments here and the solution seems to be beyond us. Given this is a major beta update to DCS a stealth glitch was to be expected. But I did have a good time flying around in a public server last night. I have enclosed my log from the most recent crash on May 16. If it helps great. dcs.20210516-191628.log
  10. Re DCS crashes on loading 2nd mission: May15 9am. After disabling and uninstalling Tacview and restarting pc I successfully loaded 6 instant action missions in a row this morning. 2xF15, 4xA10, 2xF18. Hopefully this has resolved the issues on my pc. The version of Tacview I had was released pre DCS 2.7 open beta. A new update for Tacview is in beta testing so I will wait till that is released. Now I will continue some testing and increase my clouds which I had set to LOW quality. Then begin adding trusted aircraft mods (A4, MB339, A29A).
  11. Re DCS crashes on 2nd mission: It was suggested that I disable Tacview which I did. I was then able to run 5 short instant actions missions in a row. We'll see how this goes. I have uninstalled Tacview [There is a new update to Tacview in beta testing so I will wait till that is out before re-installing]
  12. DCS Crashing on 2nd Mission Sad to say that on second set of test DCS crashed on loading of second mission. Back to troubleshooting.
  13. DCS Crashing on 2nd Mission. "May 14 8am Success [Hopefully] Completed 6 simple instant actions missions. Pre-start: Deleted all fxo and metashader files. restarted pc. loaded dcs. Reduced Clouds to LOW. Was able to complete 6 missions. After each mission, completely ended mission and went to main menu. At main menu followed Flappie's advice below and opened options and clicked 'OK'. After 6th mission exited dcs. Missions: 4x F15C takeoff A.D. persian gulf. 1x F5E free flight caucasus. 1x F5E take off caucasus. Will do further testing later." [See my main post for updates] Will do more tests later. Sad to report that on next set of tests DCS again crashed on loading of 2nd mission. [Update May 14 1:45pm local]
