  1. Thank you. I will start to get setup later on.
  2. There are so many settings to try tweaking, it is a bit overwhelming. Appreciate ideas on a good preset to start. Here are my specs: i7 11700, 2.5 GHz 8 cores 16 G RAM at 3200 MHz RTX 3060 12Gb 1 TB SSD NVMe M.2 ASUS 34" curved monitor Thanks.
  3. OK, thank you very much. I will start reading up on that one. Appreciate your reply. John
  4. I have been reading up on moving things to secondary displays. I have a small 7" touch screen monitor that I would like to move the UFC to. I have seen examples of moving things like the MFDs and other indicators to secondary monitors, but I cannot find any reference to the UFC. Q: Can it be moved to another display? Apologies if I missed it, but I am coming back after several years of being out of touch. Thanks. John
  5. All; I am working on getting a new rig and have a couple of recent posts as well as some others I have been following. I am a bit confused on the fps discussions. Folks are talking about getting from 50 to 60+ fps or from 40 to 50. So I can understand it and learn; at what point is it over the top for looking at a 32inch monitor? I mean, can you really tell playing at 60 fps v 50fps? Thanks. John
  6. All; After about a three year hiatus for a new job and moving, I am finally ready to get back into DCS. I need a new rig and I see there are so many threads on what is a "good" rig, I was wondering what your thoughts were on this one: CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Supreme Liquid Cool SLC8120A I have a GTX960 I would pop in as well. Processor Type Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz (Max 4.2GHz) Multi-Core Technology Quad-Core 64-bit Computing Yes Processor Main Features Intel Turbo Boost Technology Cache 8MB L3 Cache Mainboard Processor Socket LGA 1150 Chipset Type Intel Z170 Chipset Memory Installed Size 32GB / 32GB (Max) Technology DDR4 SDRAM Form Factor DIMM 288-pin Features Dual Channel Memory Architecture Configuration Features 4 x 8GB Storage Controller Controller Interface Type SATA III Channel Qty 6 Storage Controller (2nd) Controller Interface Type SATA II Channel Qty 0 Storage Hard Drive 2TB - SATA III - 7200 rpm; 256GB SSD Graphics Controller Type PCI Express x16 - plug-in card Graphics Processor NVIDIA GeForce GTX980 Video Memory 4GB Dedicated Video Memory Digital Video Standard DVI / HDMI / DisplayPort Audio Output Type Sound Card - Integrated Sound Output Mode High Definition Audio Compliant Standards Realtek® ALC887 Miscellaneous Features Liquid Cooling System Power Device Type Power Supply Voltage Required AC 120/230 V ( 50/60 Hz) Power Provided 800 Watt Operating System / Software OS Preinstalled Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64-bit Edition Thanks.

  7. It is not a bug, but actual reality as stated. Runway headings are not absolute as roadrabbit said as runway 27 is not necessarily 270 exactly. ILS signals are directional and are set to to be the exactly "down" the runway. Assuming there is no Localizer offset which I have seen one of in my old training days in the civ world. You will find the same thing with the TACAN as it is not always exactly on the middle of the runway. John
  8. Try using the space bar on the keybaord. With many different variations on key-mapping, the training missions sometimes are specific to actual keys. Also, when you get to the guns mission, it will say to disengage the autopilot. Their are two switched on the HOTAS to do that and only one will be recognized in the tutorial was my experience. Hope that helps. John
  9. I create my plane in the mission editor and assign it the callsign Uzi. When I play the sim and contact the tower to start up, I am referred to as Pig. Any ideas on why there is a mismatch? Thanks. John
  10. Ditto. That 4 minutes seems like an hour:) John
  11. I'm going to try and see if the back course would work. The BC is very useful in the cases where there is an overcast deck but it is not too low, so you can "shoot" the BC approach. Alternatively, we have practiced doing the ILS and then when getting under the clouds you just setup a normal pattern to go over to the other runway. It is called an ILS to Circle to Land approach. Once you have established "contact" with the runway environment you can scoot around at 400' if you want to and land. It is done a lot a smaller uncontrolled fields. Of course it is your fault if you clip power lines at 100 feet:) With all the new GPS stuff, it won't be long before a lot of this all goes away. John
  12. Yes, the ILS is for runway 07. The signal however should be received no matter where the aircraft is located as long as it is in the range of the station. I did reset the weather and then the mission was using runway 07 and I recevied the signal. TACAN worked fine as I would expect. John
  13. OK, I had made a mission starting at Kobuleti. No wind, weather, clouds, or precip. I was instructed to use runway 07 and the ILS of 111.50 worked fine. I decided to change my mission a little bit, so I used dynamic weather and when I saved and reloaded the mission I was now using runway 25 due to winds. Upon starting to come back in to land, I tuned in the ILS (I realized I was on the opposing runway) and there was no tone and the flags were pegged as no signal. I thought I had messed up. I reverted to no weather in the mission editor, fired the mission back up using start from runway. I was then placed on runway 07 and the ILS was magically working again. I know they shut off the ILS in the real world if we are using the opposing runway (unless it has a BC component), but I didn't know that the sim did that also. Is this true or have I spaced out totally? Thanks. John
  14. Thanks much. Mkes me feel better in at least I am not crazy. Unfortunate though, as I would have liked to watch my bombing runs. John
  15. Worked perfectly! Thanks Night. John
