  1. Yup, thanks for that... just about to get the Channel map. I also just purchased another SSD I now have two 500Gb ssd (C & E) so I have the beta on C/ and the stable on E/ as I ran out of room on C/ Must say it was easy to manually move the stable over to the new E/ drive, and then make a desktop icon pointing to the new location on E/ Windows10 quite clever like that I now have 250 Gb spare space on each drive... so Channel map is now a go I must be mad... having a high stepping PC just to run DCS and fly the Huey; the sim is worth it though! IJammer (/229)
  2. Yeah, I find this awkward too... I set the throttle to max, collective about fifty percent; hit 'fly' I also find the throttle is not synced initially on my TM. HOTAS (left throttle) and have to waggle the 'page up/page down' keys to get the HOTAS to sync... if I'm quick enough, I can save the ship, I then set auto-pilot so I can set the armaments, set the armaments to live and select the rockets rate... and then go create mayhem lel. Probably an easier way... but my names not Bob Mason! IJammer (/229)
  3. Trim the ship and then apply the auto pilot, if you have no beacons for the ADF go to the map, locate where your are and where you are going and set a compass heading then follow it. No SAT NAV here lel (and better for it; analogue rules!) IJammer
  4. I had something similar with another PC games some years ago... check if it associated with the browser cache (clear it) and or try a different browser.! MS is doing all sorts of stuff to intergrate 'synced' devices and being very pushy in promoting its own Edge browser and other stuff! I use Win10 and Firefox 64 myself and resisted the M$ sync crap! DCS bugs seem to be compounding by the day... I can but help think that there is possibly too much content and that ED needs to take stock, stop developing new stuff until some of the bugs on the old stuff is ironed out! Perhaps that clears the cache on exit? ^
  5. I have used TS3 and SR in DCS when I was active with a squadron group with the Huey... neither of them seemed to work very well as it was difficult to keep everyone on the same page as regards updates; we spent more time sorting the radio comms out than we did flying! So I was pleased to hear that DCS was integrating there own long over due in-house chat system to work with the aircraft radios; but even just a simple open chat facility would be nice for starters. I understand from reading various threads that there are ongoing problems implementing Voice Chat! It is a shame that this was never incorporated from the outset with DCS. As a long term user of the car racing sim iRacing... I can confirm that they had this incorporated from square one and it works quite successfully. On several occasions I wanted to try VC on the DCS multiplayer, however it is difficult from the server list to determine which servers are using VC ? I am sure some of the servers could attract more flyers if it was possible to show a VC marker on the servers that have it implemented! Perhaps a small roundel with 'VC' on each server would encourage usage and help purge any ongoing problems? Perhaps there is a marker... and I can't see it? IJammer
  6. Oh, thanks... having the same problem in the Huey with ATC not responding! Unfortunatly the radio stuff seems way down the pecking order for fixes.
  7. I am not sure if this is typical to all... I find that my binding for the Warthog left throttle arm for the Huey throttle does not bind correctly... so make sure that you can see the throttle rotate on the collective (on screen) before startup else the turbine will not increase RPM past idle! Use the KB keys 'page up / page down' to kick start the Warthog left throttle. Once done it then works ok after! Itried removing the KB binds incase this was interfering with the Warthog binding... but it didn't fix it!
  8. Hi, that may be a typo reversa on the switch label, never noticed it myself! With the squelch 'on', it should disable the radio noise... then, only a signal 'above' the squelch floor level will be heard. It is useful to check that the UHF radio is working on startup by tempoararily turning the squelch off so you can hear the radio background noise. You would not normally want to run with the squelch off unless you were trying to hear a very weak signal below the squelch floor level! I normally prefer radio's with a variable squelch... if the real Hueys are done like this it is probably a pre-set pot inside the radio adjusted so it kills the radio white noise below any signal level. Unsquelched radio static/noise is a pain to listen to all the time! If you must listen to something... CCR's 'Fortunate Son' is good
  9. Hi all... I'm having an issue with the ATC not responding on VHF (AM( (pos. 3) and UHF (pos.2) radios. Radio's turned on, correct freq. selected, squelch breaks in when test, rotary control set to correct position, master volume turned to max. all switches on radio selector switched to 'up'. This is while sat on the apron. I hear other messages transmitted by ATC, like 'incoming aircraft' etc. ADF, ILS and VOR all work fine. Aka, after selecting radio and freq. I select ATC (for the correct airport), select 'radio start up' or 'proceed to runway' etc. I hear my radio transmission to the ATC tower but never get a response? Are there any known bugs currently with the ATC in the Huey? Anyone else having the same problem or have any other things I can try? IJammer
  10. Central control panel: Make sure that you have the rotary radio TX selector positioned to '3' for VHF AM radio. There is also a master radio volume control alongside it ^ Just above that is the audio cut-out switches... make sure they are in the up position for the radio you want to recieve (RX) (all up is good for starters).
  11. Neat idea... only problem I forsee is that I use many of the buttons and sliders on the Hog throttle and would not be able access them easily with my hand on the collective rod
  12. The mouse should be to your left so you can use your left hand for the mouse (collective)... you can use a mouse with either hand can't you?
  13. Check that you don't have multiple bindings set for the trim switch? That can screw things up big time; I find that updates can sometimes add extra bindings to other controllers!
  14. Any update on the availability of the Vietnam map? Sush scope here if it could happen... esp. for the rotor heads!
  15. I landed the Huey on the carrier just outside of Bantumi in the Cobra mission and just sunk right through the deck as though it was not there?
  16. I can't understand why the most sellable map and use of exisisting craft is not out yet... the Vietnam map! DCS is just gagging for it. Where is it/date?
  17. Yup, me too... I could not update the last 2.5 unified version; I had an error messgae telling me I did not have enough memory on my 480Gb SSD. I have not been able to buy any new contaent lately because of this problem. I only have DCS and Win10 on this PC... so I guess I will have to purchase another SSD (drive 'D') and then try and move some stuff? Not sure how easy that will be though... as I have the Beta version and the standard version. Actually the new unified version has me wondering if I still need the Beta version... is it still valid to keep the beta now? Hopefully ED will start looking at this memory usage as things are getting quite BIG and with even more content (larger files) on the horizon. We need an easier way of shifting maps and DCS versions from drive to drive or sharing drives. I am not into all that DOS/CMD file moving stuff... I know if I tried that my DCS would never work again LOL
  18. Yeah... the only reason I use DCS is for the Huey. I have all the world modules and add-ons... but only as a back drop to the Huey. Alasa it does appear to be the poor relative in the DCS stable :( Updates far and few and no sign of any developement. The worlds formost flight Sim and the worlds most iconic helicopter seem to have fallen out of bed! I won't go on... as Eight Ball in his post above has covered most points. Come on ED, give BST a reminder that we are still here and that DCS has moved on!
  19. Hi... don't get on DCS much as I would like and mainly fly the HUey. I have not installed a mission for some time, I have d/loaded the mission file... could someone remind me please where/which folder I install the mission file?
  20. I have been having all sorts of problems with my usb WH and rudder pedals of late with the Huey... sometimes the flight control just dissapears after several minutes (and its not the EGT turbo failure)... also when I choose an instant action... it will sometimes work OK, but if you try to re-run the action after a crash... again there is no flight control. This is with the Open Beta... so obviously expect bugs; but hope they are sorting these USB flight control problems out?
  21. We seem to have had Alpha and or Beta versions of DCS it seems for ever... will there ever come a time when we will just run with the stable version? I appreciate the reasons why... Apha's and Beta's being test beds for such a complex bit of kit... just asking. :music_whistling:
  22. It's a shadow of the invisable alien craft from Area 51... OK, perhaps not...
