  1. Dear All, We have been silent on reply’s and direct messages under instruction from our lawyer. To dispel any myths, all I am allowed to confirm right now is that we are in constant contact with Nick Grey, head of Eagle Dynamics, about this situation. Regards, Chris.

    Hawk Rear Seat

    Hey Guys, ED have indicated they are working on a solution to help 3rd party devs with rear seat. When we know more we'll re-evaluate what needs to be done. For now, the rear seat was not updated in the recent model/textures work as more work may need to be done for the new solution, so if you use the manual editing file method you'll see lot of gaps and holes where gauges/switches should be. Thanks, Chris.
  3. Didn’t know about that one, thanks for reporting.
  4. Thanks guys I’ll take a look when I get back this week.
  5. Pleas send this to support@veaosimulations.co.uk and I can pick it up when I get back on Monday. Thanks, Chris.
  6. Satarosa, Just to clarify you say you are on Open Alpha of DCS? I assume you mean 2.5.3 Open Beta? Check bottom right of the main DCS screen. A fair few fixes are within the 2.5.3 patch already and OA hasn’t been updated for a long time as ED dropped it a while back. Just want to make sure you’re on the latest version :)
  7. Keep it civil please guys, I don’t want to lock the thread. A genuine post about genuine bugs is good. No need to question the personal history of the person posting it. We have several real world serving and ex-Hawk pilots helping us develop and tweak the module. Some things like voice and nav radios aren’t easy fixes until the re-code, as frustrating as that is we took the decision to stop taking time applying a band aid and instead use a full medical kit so bugs don’t re-occur in the future. Re-coding takes time, especially when you’re talking about an entire AHRS system. And yep we are always watching and listening for feedback. Thanks, Chris.
  8. Thanks for posting up. 1) after a cold start the procedure is you wait for warning flags to go out, then you press and hold Push to Sync which will align the HSI - as per flight reference cards for cold start. 2) known issue, still being worked on. 3) which airfield are you landing at? 4) please explain further, I don't understand what you mean? 5) press and hold and they should fire off a salvo until you release 6) morse code is working perfectly, have you turned on the audio panel switch? I've been testing in Caucasus map and VOR/TACAN nav is working fine, even with terrain masking. Nevada seems to be mostly working (try the nav mission) and PG map not at all. I'm looking into it. 7) points taken, will look at adding more functionality to keybind list. Thanks, Chris.
  9. Always happy to answer community questions openly :)
  10. Just did another flight; using keyboard completely this time from start-up, taxi, take off, circuit, landing and shut down. Keypad numbers work fine for looking around the cockpit for me and to all extents that I can see all switches, levers, etc. to fly the aircraft. Like I posted above I'd suggest clearing your Hawk keybinds by deleting the following folders: Saved Games\DCS\Config\Input\Hawk\keyboard Saved Games\DCS\Config\Input\Hawk\mouse Both of mine are actually blank as I haven't assigned anything custom for Hawk for keyboard or mouse so it's using the defaults. Let me know if that works, Chris.
  11. Also try deleting your keyboard and mouse bindings for Hawk which will revert back to default.
  12. Are you using the numpad keys to look around. It’s working fine on mine?
  13. Nope, no feature added. It should be working as it always has. Will look into it. Thanks, Chris.
  14. Thanks B. For some people it is working in the Nevada map so we’re looking into why it’s working for some and not others.
  15. Tim Davies (of Fast Jet Pilot fame), ex Hawk instructor at RAF Valley has already recorded a test flight demonstrating sortie 1; start-up, taxi, take off, spins and recovery. We are working with Tim on a series of training missions replicating the fast jet training programme as a campaign. Further details will come when it’s more developed. Thanks, Chris.

    Have to share this.

    Many thanks. She is a beautiful trainer.
  17. Thanks for reporting, will look into it.
  18. A word from the developer... To clear up a few mis-information posts in here: The Hawk in DCS does currently have TACAN, VOR and ILS Navigation which is the staple for any modern day trainer in military use. There is also a ground based taxi-around-the-runway mission in Training on Caucasus map that shows you how to use the nav radios and HSI indicators. We also have a NavEx mission in the Nevada map, included in the module, along with a time-on-target mission (short flight and long flight) which again you can use navaids for if you wish to. We also have modelled terrain masking, so if you're behind the mountain as an example, you'll lose the beacon. The flight manual with the module is very detailed on how to use the radio navigation. It has been reported currently (mid August 2018 ) that the radio nav isn't working with the latest patch which we are looking into. That said, all of the above functionality is coded into the module and will be available when the bug is fixed. The Grim Reapers also recently put out a YouTube video on the Hawk weapons functionality and how to use it (graphics are the old cockpit): I hope this helps clear some things up. Thanks, Chris.
  19. Many thanks to Dominic for fixing the Aden gun pod visibility. Should be in the next patch guys (not today's one). Thanks, Chris.
  20. Yes it should be able to track VOR but not DME. It seems broken at the moment and I'm looking into it as was working very nicely even with terrain masking.
  21. Thanks. I just got my Oculus back up and running and she looks stunning in VR too!!
  22. Hey Guys, We are pleased to announce that the Hawk PBR cockpit update is now in DCS World Release version as of today. Here are the features that have been updated: New cockpit 3D model NOTE: Parking brake has moved to right hand panel towards the rear behind the map box (see image). New PBR cockpit textures Cockpit night lighting bug fix Cockpit performance tweaks (better FPS) Cockpit further enhancements for VR Keyboard and Joystick Controls updated for night lighting Many thanks to Gibbageart for the amazing textures and model update. We hope you enjoy the new update as much as we do. Chris, Pete and the VEAO team. If you haven't got the Hawk for DCS World yet, you can purchase it straight from the ED store: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/products/planes/hawk/
  23. Yep I’m sure. We are looking at ways to rectify that however to increase production time and shorten bug fix time. Glad you like it :)
