  1. What Planes can we Fly In Marianas ? Was that an Anton Dressed up as A Zero ? A bit confused Devs but my Wallet will be Open for WW2 marinas !
  2. After a lot of work, I have made a Stream deck profile for the Spit. Its not quiet finished but if there is any Interest, I will Post it. I am doing K4,IL16,Dora, Mustang at the moment !..More to Come !
  3. Thank you Lange. You have worded it Better than me...How Hard would it be for DCS to make "Gunsight Range" (as an example) the Same keystroke for Ever DCS Aircraft that it Applies to ? ~S~ Yes, Cant see the wood from the Trees !
  4. HI DCS. I have brought this up before but now its 2021 ! I am TRYING to setup my Stream Deck for Spit,K4,Il 16,Dora,P51, P47 ! What a Nightmare ! Altimeter Up and Down= Different Keystrokes for Each. Gunsight, Compass HDG and So Many more . COULD you PLEASE THINK about Unifying YOUR Modules to A SET of GIVEN KEYSTROKES ? I Know, not All keys Apply to each Aircraft and there will be Disruptions to DCS Players Controls Bindings that will make them Unhappy . Can You PLEASE Patch this 2014 Controls Menu to 2021 ?
  5. I have been using Saitek for years. I got my VIRPIL VPC ACE Pedals two weeks ago. Quality and Engineering is astounding. I have been Simming for 25 Years and have Never had such precision in a set of Pedals. I fly mostly WW2 planes. HIGHLY Recommend them !
  6. After 3 years away from DCS nothing has changed ! Buy a new Aircraft and Rudder is Bound to MGs, Throttle is Bound to Views, so here we go Again !...Clear each Controller and its Inputs. ..have a Fly, No, I missed a Binding that ED gave me !....ED, can we have a CLEAN controller menu when we start ? ... Experts are going to tell me about LUAs ! ....How hard can it be to choose our `own CONTROLLER BINDINGS " ?
  7. I spent hours Downloading "Normandy Early Access". (I am a Backer) of Luthier:clown_2: So after a few hiccups I get "DCS Normandy" running.(And after searching Forums to Find out "What version is Compatible"?...) So now I see a New DCS GUI. I have to Download all my Modules to It. Fine. Now I look at the "Options" Menu. I have to do ALL of them Again. I see ALL my controllers have Already been Bound to Multiple Axes (Again). Well done on that one ED....I know I can Delete them... and Hopefully I wont miss one. So now I have my Spit, FW ,P51 and Have to Program "EVERYTHING" Again. I couldnt be bothered . Too much Drama. ED , As a Simmer, I want to support you. My opinion is DCS is "All Over the Place". Its 1.5, its 2.0 Alpha and Beta...its 2.5 up and coming. Why Make it so Hard to FLY DCS ? PS Don't tell me How to use LUA files. I just want to Program my Options/ Plane Once in DCS and go Flying. J~S~
  8. Thanks for all you comments lads. I've harped on about this topic before , I know. But I believe it's important moving forward for DCS. We have DCS 2 coming as well as Edge and lots of new stuff on the horizon and I am excited by it all. (20 years ago my Simming was Triangles and outlines)...(OOh I remember when I bought my first 3dFX Voodoo card ). Sorry I digress ! My point is this : NEWCOMERS to DCS !. ...They Have a rig that can Run DCS, Buy their first module and want to go Flying straight away after a little bit of Setup. They jump in and Find Rudder is bound to Pitch, Joystick is bound to Throttle, Sliders are bound to Roll Axis etc etc.. Why make it this Hard For newcomers to DCS. Then they Have search the Forums, Find out what LUAS are ! They want to Fly, They have bought their Favorite Plane to fly DCS (Maybe they are moving From another Flight Game to DCS). I do not want to Sacrifice the the Fidelity of DCS or any of it Modules. I honestly believe that ED can do this Better and make it Easier and more user-Friendly for Pilots that may be joining DCS for the first time. That's it , I have said my piece on this topic. ~S~ to all.
  9. Whats this supposed Prove ? I didn't say I want a GENERIC Gear/Up down for every module. GO check "Trim Nose UP/down" for every module. Why get so Defensive ?
  10. BigNewy ! my win 7 had a virus. So I wanted a Clean Install.. I wasn't Risking any File (especially on a USB Drive. I know that each and every aircraft Is different. I got that. But why should all my controls come "Pre-Bound" to multiple Axis for the same function ! Why do I have to Program Different Keystrokes for the Exact same function. I would think that "canopy open/close" would be the same keystroke in every module. Its not.... And that is just one example of many ..Why cant I program "open/close canopy" for ALL my DCS modules ? Before any of the rest of the 10 year "Hardcore" chime in with their "I can do it in five minutes", I have been flying Lockon /Dcs since Flanker..I have always found the DCS controls menu a pain. I don't know how this affect cockpit Builders ? All I am suggesting is that When I open my DCS controls for the First time, I can start with a Clean Slate. I can Bind my Pitch,rudders etc and SAVE them for ALL modules. I can THEN go to EACH module and "SAVE AS" P51d for example. Then I can save all" Save as" for keystrokes... Again I say I think the Controls menu is dysfunctional especially for newcomers. Also as someone else mentioned.. Scrolling left and right to make sure you haven't missed an Axis that DCS has decided to bind for you. I am sticking with my Opinion. DCS is moving Forward but the Options/controls menu is back in the Eighties. ~S~ to all.
  11. Hi bigNewy... I said Clean Install. I did backups on Win 7. I'm not using them. That's not the point. My OP is about the terrible Options/Controls menu in DCS. ...Axis duplicated and similar controls Separated for each and every module. I think it needs looking at by ed. ~S~
  12. DCS is moving Forward..Controls menu in the Dark ages. Hi all ! I just did a Clean Install of win 10. So I got all my DCS modules back again. Controls Menu : ALL my Devices are BOUND to the SAME Axis !... So TM, Saitek Pedals.Throttle Quad etc all do the Same thing ? OK, no drama, go and Clear Category(scrolling left and right up and down to start again) ! Then I start to program my Axis, Curves and assignments. Done That ? Fantastic ! Now for my next Module ! Do it all again ? Remove the Axis that "Someone" has decided to Bind for me ! And to add to the Chaos, keystrokes for the Same function vary from one module to the next. Is to much to ask that COMMON Flight commands "Pitch",Roll".Rudder, Trim Nose.canopy ,gear etc could All be be set In an DCS Controls menu. Ive got 8 Modules to go. And Then FC3. Ed, this would have to be the most Un-user friendly GUI (INMHO). ~S~

  14. Very informative Klem ~S~ This is a great discussion IMHO ! I fly 3 Sims (when I can). One of them had the worst possible "spotting" issues. Visual target would Disappear and "Warp" past you. It was very frustrating...But they fixed it and I can see Dots, Zoom in to Identify and see them "Materialise" as they get closer !.... I have been flyin DCS since Lock-On (flanker before it)....All jets with radar !...so I always used radar(Close in) to "Point" my eyes and "expect "the target to appear "! I never saw any problem with "Spotting" in DCS !.....Until I flew planes without radar ! Namely the ww2 birds. I know nothing of the technical aspects of Rendering, Lods etc ! I don't know what is a "Realistic" view !...But from a PC simmers point of view,(mine),DCS falls short... in this one area !..The rest of the DCS world is as accurate as can be ! A quick question guys : will the "Edge' make this topic Moot ?..Are Lod improvements factored into Edge ? ~S~ to all
  15. Hi FF. I am a tradesman and know nothing of Economics.....But why does any Buisness have a "Sale" ? Does apple have to have a "Sale" when releasing a new I-phone ? ..No ,people camp out all night to buy it ! A "Sale" (IMHO) is only to Sell a Product that is not selling well enough and /or to attract some new customers. I would Love to to see the the day when "DCS" doesn't need to have a "Sale" to raise cash. Freddie,(IMHO) flightsimmers can be a bunch of Demanding,Arrogant and opinionated people youll ever meet. We are a TINY community that want so much...And Some Want all this for $50 .....Did I mention "Indignation" ? That's what I will get after this Post ! ~S~
