  1. Thanks, I hope to be able to get the Saved Games area to work like it used to for Me before My new PC build
  2. I have a brand New PC build and what a difference running a i9-12900K is with 5200 speed 64G of Ram and water cooled CPU and EVGA RTX 2080Ti compared to my old setup i7-4790K is ! So much to learn now as the bios now has so much more info then last 5 year old build. I am not able to update to Win 11 Pro as it says I have a security problem. My new rig was build for Win11 Pro and I need it to install. When I go into DCS, I have to redo all settings on every plane or jet each time I fly and shut down the PC. All Curves and settings are lost each new startup. I cannot get the GUI Updater to find saved game area as well now. Never had problems like this, This is My 6th PC build and I never had problems before this new PC. Thanks for any help and sorry if I posted this here instead of a new message as the people here know what they are doing and I am lost. The new Bronco is what I have tried so hard to place into saved games to get it to work and it just does not for Me. Clear Skies Mike
  3. Well isn't it strange that I have a 100% rating in buying and selling on Ebay. You must only besmirch others away from Ebay on their favorite Flight Sim.
  4. I appreciate the advice, to Rudel_chw, This only happens when DCS has a major 2.7 update. I have tried to export the settings, but it did not seem to work for Me. I must be doing something wrong. I found this on the forums: "I did solve a great deal of that by rebuilding DCS’ shaders. Deleting the ‘fxo’ and ‘metashaders2’ folders is a common performance increasing method when jumping between updates and that did solve a number of issues with performance but it didn’t fully alleviate them." I was able to find the FXO file and deleted it and it seemed to help, I could not find metashaders but I messed with them in the past and learned not to. Thanks so much for all Your help Clear Skies Mike
  5. My PC has a messed up motherboard and strange things happen. When I update DCS, I have to completely re set up everything in DCS. All My planes and jets have to have pedal/stick/throttle commands redone. all curves on Axis tune panel and so many other things are lost. The hours I spend flying and gaining experience, and the rewards of medals are gone. Can someone please tell Me what I can save that will prevent this from happening all the time now ? Thank You and Clear Skies Mike nullnullnull
  6. I guessed it right !!! As soon as the Open Beta updated, the South Atlantic Map was available for Download.
  7. I have 14 minutes left to download the newest update, and then I hope when I go into Module manager I can download the South Atlantic Map. " it may take a few minutes " Must be so busy with everyone buying this wonderful map !!! Now all I need is the F4U Corsair and I will be in Heaven !! Clear Skies Mike
  8. Using the GUI Updater, I cant get saved games to work, and I have been using it for many years without many problems but never this type. I have to reset my P51 or P47 everytime I want to start up dcs. Takes a long time to set up the brakes and flaps and trigger and release weapons buttons every time I play. Until I did a "Repair" My P51 would only fly as a A10 II.
  9. I cannot even get my DCS Saved Games area to work in Updater GUI utility, and Ive been using it for a while and never had a problem like this. I have copied so many LUA files and messed with things that I finally did a clean up and the Mustang now flys when I try to use it in a mission, instead the A-10 II always loaded. Every time I want to fly, I have to reset whatever plane I am flying. It remembers some settings sometimes, but its very frustrating.
  10. After watching many WWII movies, I now wish to have the following WWII Planes: 1. Grumman F6FHellCat 2. Douglas SBD Dauntless 3. Lockheed P-38 Lightning [ although the Northrop P-61 Black Widow, sure is nice too ] Thank You for Your consideration Clear Skies Mike ************************************************* OLD WISH **************************************************************** I enjoyed reading the newest update and look forward to checking out automatic F18 carrier landings. Just to watch for awhile and learn. The Fountain having water would look really immersive and be FUN as well. I personally am waiting for the North Atlantic Map and the F4U Corsair. They have both been on My wish list for a long time. Clear Skies Mike
  11. I sure wish I could get it to work as things with taking off and hovering with the joystick I am using is not much fun. DCS saves some things and not others and profiles wont load. I found spudknockers and another xml file and I do not know where to put them. I do a search for *.XML and only one file comes up on the open beta DCSW SSD.
  12. Well I have found the TDAC Left Hand Grip UP after reading things here after I posted the above. Thanks for mentioning the pilot and co pilot and it was right there all along YEA Thanks
  13. I just watched Mat Wagners tutorial and at 20;37 He talks about the action Switches I thank You so much
  14. Thank You for getting back to Me so fast, I appreciate it !!!!
  15. There is a vid on Youtube where the guy says to use Full Screen in options, and hit Alt plus Enter and You will jump from 30FPS to a higher amount. Hope this helps with VR
  16. Left alt J works fine for Me. Took me 18 hours to DL the Last Update and then another hour and a half to DL the Apache.
  17. Sorry I cant help, I am struggling with Control Options. The APACHE gun has Weapons Action Switch g/Up M/right and other commands and I set them up but none work to get past Mat Wagner's tutorial and the UP thing You need to do is not listed as the G/Up certainly is not the one. I bet future updates in the tutorial will show the button to press. Try looking up Was UP No Go... I hope We both get things working soon. Clear Skies Mike
  18. If You go to Marks Marketplace and ABOUT, You can read how You order things and they arrive DOA after the 30 day warranty is up. https://www.newegg.com/Seller-Store/Mark-s-Marketplace/about https://www.usps.com/help/claims.htm?tab=echo
  19. This guy does a great job of explaining everything. Blue smoke is NOT what You were suppose to look for according to the video
  20. Windows 10 21H2 is what I have been using and now I know why DCS crashes all the time and my Bios is all messed up. I am certain that the reason DCS crashes every time I turn on my EVGA Precision OC clockware software, it crashes dcs. I need to go back to a standard version. I have read some interesting things here about buying a 30 dollar part that will allow win 11 to function at 1.2 version Amazon.com: ASUS - MOTHERBOARDS TPM SPI Module System Components MOTHERBOARDS : Electronics this went up in price a few dollars in the last few days. My MB is 6 years old but I need to upgrade soon. ********************************************************************************************************************************************************* I installed 1909, which is the stock win 10 pro OS, and DCS and the entire PC runs 200% better then Win 11... YEA Precision X OC works now again with no problems and DCS is now remembering curve settings once again.
  21. This is the new input for getting the throttle to work in the Mossy. I now need to find out where the release bomb button is....
  22. Thank You Grafspee for letting me know what it was...... I edited my post to reflect what happened and I did find and was testing to make sure it worked first. I was in the Army in 1972 in Heidelberg, Schwetzingen, and Worms, West Germany and loved it there !!!
  23. I downloaded and installed the new 2.78.16140 update, and now it has tons of new items to choose, but no where can I find a setting to use my TM Warthog Throttle in the Axis area. *********************************************************************************************************************** I just found: input. generic throttle slider and it worked. I should most likely delete this whole thread, but others may now also now know that throttle is now not near Pitch Roll and Rudder.
  24. I really look forward to this South Atlantic Map, Thank You Razbam Team for making this beautiful landscape to enjoy flying a F4U Corsair around in !!!!!
  25. I ordered a new Circuit board for My Joystiick and it is doing the same thing My old board did. My OS version of Win is Windows 10 Pro Version 21H1 Installed on ‎8/‎9/‎2021 OS build 19043.1151 And it has not updated for 10 weeks and I only get Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog Joystick BULK version and the drivers are from 2 4 2011. Some on the Web say drivers are not needed ? You cannot contact TM by phone and cust svc is pretty bad at answering questions, but not as much as Microsoft is now...
