  1. A "basic arg-based fluid animation"? That sent me to Google! In reading from some of the hits I got, and most of it flew over my head, I wonder if it would be a gpu hit? Maybe since we're only talking about a small area (the compass) it won't be such a hit? Anyway, thanks for the reply. Flyby out
  2. Hi guys, I came across this video yesterday. It's an in-cockpit flight presentation of the Warthog. I can only provide the link as I don't know how to otherwise post a video. I think it's rather routine until it makes gun runs. I never knew the compass fizzed over with bubbles when the cannon fired (@ 2: 57). Also, the plane vibrates noticeably. Are these effects modeled in the sim? quick edit I think I figured out the posting of a video. Flyby out The link:
  3. JMI, I gave it a try You are onto something. I did as you asked, and the Su-25 quick mission failed to load with the internet connection. I restarted the PC, disconnected the internet cable, then tried the Su quick mission again, and it successfully launched. Now for the magic bullet? thank you, Flyby out
  4. Hi JMI I will try your suggestions. Last night I deleted DCS, and scoured the registry to remove all traced of DCS, and Eagle Dynamics. I then d/l'd 2.5 beta. No change for the good when I fired it up. Also maybe important, when I had to use the Task manager to "end task" I saw that the memory usage showed approximately 900mb. I've seen this figure every time I've had to end DCS. It's like the memory is just hanging there (?). I'll report back. Flyby out
  5. hello JMI, 1- yes, very stable internet 55dl/11ul low pings on most servers I fly. 2- I think I am, as my name and PW are populated, but I notice I alway have to click the "remember me" box as it does not seem to "remember" (me). 3- No. When I click the module manager, doing so freezes the sim. 4- selecting a mission then a plane then fly freezes the sim. 5- None of my modules I purchased show up (but isn't that what the module manager is suppose to show me once it opens?) I suppose I should go insane and uninstall DCS 2.5 beta, then reinstall DCS and expect a different result?:( Maybe this time I'll scour the registry in case there are bits left in the machine. JMI, I appreciate you chiming in. I'm all ears, and open to try anything. many thanks, Flyby out
  6. freeze/frozen Well Win10 dicked me again. Before I had to reset my PC I had 2.5 running. After resetting, all sims work except DCS 2.5 beta. It starts OK, and I can select settings, but I click the module manager and it freezes. If I try to select the TF51 for a free flight, it freeze with the interminable hour glass. In either case I have to ctl-alt-dlt to select task manager and close DCS. I uninstalled everything then downloaded 2.5 beta and this is where I'm at now, nothing works. What should I have done differently to help a new install find it's legs? seach the registry for entries? I can try that. I think I ran the DCS repair, which was successful, but the game still froze as mentioned thank you, Flyby out
  7. oh, btw did the updater cleanup and also the repair. both indicated "successful", but still DCS hangs on quick missions.:( Flyby out
  8. Interestingly After the 2.5 update flying in the Normandy map was just fine. But another problem (Windows update) where I had to reset my PC, and now 2.5 freezes when I select a free flight mission or any other mission for that matter. It freezes during loading. I've tried what the support site says, and still call no joy. Where is the dsc.log located, please? I can't seem to locate it thank you, Flyby out PS I downloaded the 2.5 beta to another drive, and still the same freeze after selecting a quick mission
  9. Thanks for the perspective, Raven. I think I'm sold on the 1080Ti (11gb). Much appreciated! Flyby out
  10. Thanks db for the reply. I'd been a bit hesitant to go with the extra ram, as my reference point is years old wherein extra vram was not utilized and only resulted in slower performance. But these days with 64-bit architecture (is that right?) I'm hopeful a more modern card will carry me for the next few years. I mainly do combat flight sims, so I think it's getting to be time where modern sims can stress cards of two generations ago. thanks!
  11. Replacing a GTX 770 2gb. Running Normandy on a 2560 x 1440 monitor. It's a very good card, but it's now 4 years old. I'm thinking a 1080(Ti?) with 11gb of vram. One day I'll go VR when it's ready (imo) for our combat flight sims so I'd like a little future-proofing. I think the 1080 Ti with 11 gb will be sufficient, but will DCS take advantage of that much Vram? Will I need that much for VR? thank you, Flyby out
  12. it's a reunion! Zaelu and Mytzu too!How lucky can I be?:)You guys were the best to fly with and to learn from. Fond memories for sure. thank you both for that. Flyby out
  13. d13th?! Zaelu? Izzatchoo (is that you?) Fond memories of the 13th trying to bring me along as an online combat pilot. I sucked! But you guys were very helpful, and got me hooked on full-real settings. Is there still such a thing as the d13th online these days? catch me up. Ever "hear" from Novolume, or any of the guys (whose names escape now)? thank you for chiming in. it's been a long time. Flyby out PS I now fly with the Air Combat Group (ACG) in Cliffs of Dover. It has a running campaign of the Battle of Britain with historically based missions: http://www.aircombatgroup.co.uk/ PS-PS who are you calling young!:D
