  1. MiniZap - Missile Launch Zone Calculator test setup with AIM-120B AMRAAM Intercept controls: Target Aspect: 180 deg Launch Altitide: 10 000 m Target Altitide: 10 000 m Target Speed: 900 km/h Test 1: Launch speed: 1200 km/h Result distance to target: 58.5 km Test 2: Launch speed: 400 km/h Result distance to target: 46.8 km Conclusion: 11.7 km difference !!! As you know MiniZap is not 100% waterproof but it is very close with reality, much closer than FC2 anyway! Anyway it is nice to know that the issue is addressed. PS. To be honest I have not yet tested this issue because I always try to take advantage of launch speed of my plane as much as possible: it is about using the right tactic, implemented or not in FC2… :D
  2. @Scooternutz, I see that you were not familiar with the old school Frugals community. Oh man, Aragorn was/is a flightsimmer with the most vulgarity postings ever found on the net: trust me on that :D. But anyway he is/was a hardcore flightsimmer. Of course he was the famous man too who was nailing once his wingman with an air-to-ground-missile at 30000 ft. :D The old days of online playing with falcon… great times. :thumbup: It seems that frugalsworld is down? I don't know if these falconboys still were live? PS. of course he was banned about 100 times but at the end of the day most of the community loved him. :lol:
  3. Sorry mate for complaining but my Lockon Flaming Cliffs2 DVD box says "16" PEGI Rating… check www.pegi.info Not trying to be unpleasant, but face it: FC2 is a war simulation… But anyway it is indeed gross to disgrace the oldest job of humankind like that At least 50 euro you have to pay… :D
  4. I don't know what connection speed I have to set as a Host: ADSL 256/128 LAN 1 LAN 10 Which option fits best for my VDSL2 connection? I guess my connection must be good enough for max 10 players?
  5. The Installation and Activation guide for LOCKON: Flaming Cliffs2 says: "…you must have installed either LOCKON: Modern Air Combat or LOCKON: Flaming Cliffs." Of course for Flaming Cliffs "1" you need to have also LOCKON: Modern Air Combat… as a result you need "LOCKON: Modern Air Combat" anyway :D
  6. For the Russian fighters load it would be nice to load always 2 ET's and/or 2 R-73's as preset up. If I get my preset up with a load of 6 x R-77's on the Mig-29s then the 1st thing I do is quitting that server. An easy solution for mission builders on servers could be for example: nr 60 Mig-29s: 6 x R-77's nr 61 Mig-29s: 4 x R-77's, 2 x R-73 nr 62 Mig-29s: 2 x R-77's, 2x ET, 2 x R-73 nr 63 Mig-29s … etc.
  7. I am so stupid :D; I was selecting "Mig-29S" and doing a config for "Mig-29" thus that was my problem ... Now everything works!
  8. ok thanks, I figured out how to activate your profile on my cougar with foxy! The trick is compile/download the setup file within Foxy or whatever option and this enables simulation button mode for the hotas. Now I just need to find a Mig-29s friendly TM cougar profile. Looks like FC2 ignores everything you do in FC2 options controls assignments.:mad:
  9. Example: I figured out slider 1 for the thrust, so this I have assigned correctly! For my target AA designator in the sensor section I was selecting: left: <ctrl> together with "JOY BTN POV1 L" right: <ctrl> together with "JOY BTN POV1 R" down: <ctrl> together with "JOY BTN POV1 D" up: <ctrl> together with "JOY BTN POV1 U" but it was not yet working…??? "JOY BTN POV1 …" single was already used for camera view…
  10. I found the complicated Foxy program where you can indeed write complicated macros with. But I did not find the FC2 names like JOY BTN5 JOY BTN4 JOY BTN1 JOY BTN3 JOY BTN POV DL JOY BTN POV DR JOY BTN POV D JOY BTN POV L JOY BTN POV R … I guess I start to figure out which button is what on my hardware manually: -> assign 1 button on 1 FC2 function = to find 1 button combination I have to try 100 possibilities from FC2 options list and launch the game about 100 times to find out which one is it…:D Repeat this proces for the 30 missing functions...
  11. I only have the HOTAS Cougar Control Panel , version 3.01 Firmware version 3.06 and I am running Vista 64 bit; I just need a schema with some explanation on the Lockon FC2 names. something like what is the corresponding name for the red cannon button on my cougar in FC2 options menu? :thumbup: It shows me a long list of 100+ cougar button names...
  12. ok thanks, Now I just have to know: What is Foxy? Where can I find it? :D
  13. So I made my comeback to flight simming and I picked up a DVD copy of FC2 and now I have to assign stuff to my Thrustmaster Cougar. My 1st problem is that I have to known the buttons names on my hotas. There is no easy assign tool that shows me the names of the buttons that are pushed in? Thus I need a list/schema that explains the names for the corresponding stuff on my cougar. It is been a while… 1 or 2 years? :D PS. I can figure out the stuff that is already assigned like JOY X … etc…
  14. I am happy to hear that amd is keeping up and will bring again top performance on the market but until a real Intel killer machine will enter the arena I will keep my I7 toy running on stock cooling btw. Anyway I have a AMD ATI 4850 video adapter. My old AMD FX-55 still is alive and kicking also :D. anyway my latest pc specs:

  16. The major problem with steam is when the steam-server is down. the only way to play for example total war empire in off-line for me is: 1- disconnect the network 2- steam propose the "play off-line" option because there is a connection error If your internet connection is fine and the steam server is off then it is impossible to launch the game, except with the previous method. @shamandgg, Anyway you can play via steam any time without any internet connection and without DVD in your drive...:D
  17. English version with printed manual announced for 15-MAR-2009 at SimWare Simulation 360: Ka-50 Black Shark (DCS) [English Version] Printed manual - 600 pages in color ! VAT excl. € 33.05 Because I am an online "buying virgin" I guess I have to wait for the 15 march 2009 ;). EUROPEAN HEADQUARTER SHOWROOM & SHOP Chaussee de Ruisbroek 290 1620 Drogenbos - Belgium Open from Tuesday to Saturday (10am to 1pm and 2 to 5pm) GMT+1 (Brussels time)
  18. As a military simmer since 1988, I could see this coming from 1000 miles. Indeed it can’t climb, it can’t turn and it can’t run. This fat bomb truck is even not enough stealth because the compromise which was made to make it a vertical landing vehicle. The big problem is that it is too late to cancel the project: too much money was invested and too many countries have signed for this disaster project. You can put the F-35 against the eurofighter in a similar exercise and the outcome would be identical. (even against the cheap F16-CJ block52 the outcome would be the same)
  19. Export would give away the advantages of the plane and make it useless. Ok, I was talking nonsense… Just checking my new signature…:D Skip and go next…:thumbup:
  20. This is how I like the simulator movies. No Hollywood flashing crap but the real thing: what you see is what you get, no visual effects. Real 720 hd format with no stuttering (I guess this was rendered: no fraps crap too but I could be wrong) Excellent stuff. I can’t wait to have my hands on this sim (I think that I am going to buy me an Intel Core i7 Nehalem to run this baby in January :D) .
  21. Looks like I could have DCS BS in 42 hours and 29 minutes by train: Brussel Noord/Bruxelles Nord - Moskva Belorusskaja 42:29 4 IC, CNL, S, EC, D Details: 1 Brussel Noord/Bruxelles - Köln Hbf 2 Köln - Wjasma 3 Wjasma - Moskva Belorusskaja How long does it take to get a visa for Russia? :D
  22. No need to test the old S-300. An F-16 has no chance against the powerful ground radar of the S-300 even with jammers on. This would be very stupid wasted money! :music_whistling: If Yugoslavia would have had this system in 1999 then even the yugo-war would never be started.
  23. The only Mach 2.0 cruiser-bomber! Intercept that… The Blackjack cruises at the top speed of the raptor…. From a base in Cuba tu-160 pilots would have a lot of fun :D.
  24. I am thinking seriously of selling my property in Belgium and buying myself a nice crib in the US. I wonder what you can do nowadays in the US with like 450.000 euro (about 706.500 dollars at 1.57 :D) Isn’t it wonderfully global world economy? :P
  25. Or could it be that the use of ECM-systems is practically useless against nowadays AESA-radars? It is very difficult (read impossible) to jam an AESA-radar.
