  1. I can think of 2 reasons to link… 1. Some games (not DCS) have a limit on how many USB devices they will detect. Linking can help if you are 1 over the limit. 2. You want to control the LEDs on both with Virpil’s link tool, and it can only manage a single device last time I checked. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. FYI, You can use the “Cockpit View” bindings to move the camera forward in MP to look down into the front cockpit and manipulate/verify the countermeasures switches. Then hit camera center or move camera back to reset the view. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Great interview! Can’t wait till fly the upcoming campaigns mentioned in the article. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks! I will put those tips into practice! I am still breaking the engine occasionally, and I am sure your pointers will help. I am 7 missions in now, and have the AI sorted (workarounds noted in Reflected’s video). 7 hard earned kills protecting the “Big Friends” that played out like WWII gun cam footage. Easily the best campaign I have ever played in any flight sim. Hits all the “realism” marks, totally immersive, and I feel like part of the war effort vs having to singlehandedly shoot down AI like John Wick in every mission. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thank you foe the quick response. I finished the video you recommended and took notes on your engine management recommendations and AI pointers. The campaign as a whole is mind blowing. The large formations of fighters and bombers is jaw dropping. No sim has ever looked this impressive and immersive, and the work you put into it is as amazing as the results on screen.

  6. I don't mean to come off as a complainer, and this campaign is a dream come true, but I am running into some show stopper issues... 1. The AI climb rate forces me to overstress my engine to keep up. - Multiple missions I have blown my engine running high mp and rpm just to stay in contact with my flight (52/2550) until they level off. No matter how careful I am with the temps the engine blows late into the mission. I either fly solo lagging miles behind, or blow the engine keeping in formation. I spend more time trimming and playing with oil/intercooler shutters to minimize drag than enjoying the flight. 2. My element lead is a coward. - At the point of contact with the Luftwaffe, my flight lead will turn the other direction, descend down to 12-15K, putz around away from the action, and then turn for home when the radio call comes in to form up and leave without ever getting close to an enemy plane. This has happened on 3 missions in a row (4, 5, 6). On the way home my engine blows (see #1).
  7. Loving the campaign so far, but struggling to keep up with the AI. They climb and pull away like I am standing still. What MP and RPM are the AI running when climbing to cruise altitude? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks. I’ll check it out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. I voted for the A-10C II, because it is arguably "better" as the APKWS is a game changer for capability (more so than the laser maverick and laser JDAM). The Scorpion helmet sight is also amazing. All that being said, they are so close to each other overall and so well modelled that owning either is well worth the spend.
  12. 1. Make sure you install the latest drivers from AMD for the chipset/motherboard. 2. If you have a 400/500 series chipset, let the bios manage the overclock through PBO (precision boost overclock). 3. Run the RAM at 3200mhz if at all possible, or 3000 if you can’t reach 3200. Ryzen needs this at a min for best performance. Above that is diminishing returns. Below 3200 performance is degraded. 4. Make sure you have adequate cooling and power. Both the CPU and GPU will throttle if temps run high or there isn’t enough power available to hit the top boost clocks. 5. Consider running a video card driver cleaner to make sure there is nothing left over from a previous card/driver causing issues. 6. Go into “(system drive):\users\(username)\Saved Games\(DCS or DCS.OpenBeta)\” and delete the cached files in the fxo and metashader folders. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Mine (F/A-18C grip) is rock solid. My older WH grip had some wobble after years of service. Basically there are a couple of Allen heads holding the halves of the grip together near the bottom that might need to be tightened if over time they work slightly loose. When this happens there is a little movement in the mounting shaft the halves hold in place. This is typically the source of the “wobble”. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
