  1. Sorry guys a lot of what you are saying is like chinese to me.... I don't understand any of that stuff. I have never been good with computers. I did some more research and found two other ones that look OK, but one has a AMD Radeon R9 370 2GB video card versus an Nvidia card... I'll add RAM to it to make it 16gb at least (both at 8gb now), but what do you think of these two? The other has a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 2GB GDDR5 video card but is a little more expensive. And yes this is going to be only for DCS... http://www.microcenter.com/product/469096/M32CD_Desktop_Computer_Factory_Recertified Radeon one http://www.microcenter.com/product/455845/G11CD-US009T_Desktop_Computer Nvidia one
  2. I'm awful with computers LOL... I'm sure I could probably figure it out, but I'm not sure if I want to risk ruining a computer and wasting money when just buying it already put together will save me time and money in the long run...
  3. Can anyone give some feedback on this system and the features of it to effectively run DCS 2.0? I don't know much about computers but it looks like it has more than enough to be good for it.
  4. So my setup works well for 1.5, but I can't get it running efficiently for 2.0 as it is very laggy even in single player mode (especially when I am near other aircraft). I am going to be buying a new PC specifically for DCS and need some guidance on what people have. I'm just starting my research, but I would like to order it so I have it up and running by the end of the month or the beginning of November if possible. Any help would be great!!
  5. Straight bend should be OK... I can make it work at least to keep it simple...
  6. I just got the A-10C Warthog HOTAS from Thrustmaster, but I'm having a hard time getting it to work so I may have to send it back for a replacement from Amazon. But either way that's the one I will be having... Right now I have the X-55
  8. What do I need to purchase in order to extend the joystick longer for my pit? I'm going to start working on my home pit for the A-10C, and that will be something I would like to get soon. I've seen some people with it, but I've looked everywhere and can't find that attachment....
  9. 3-ship formation CAS mission from the other day as well.
  10. Here is a (LONG) video of one of our training missions recently recorded by one of our pilots. This was a 4-ship CAS mission. It was a lot of fun and did some practice and training for formation flying on the way to the first target.

    Thanks bro! I appreciate it man. I'm not too familiar with how it works so that's why I thought it was ED lol My intention in posting isn't to bad mouth the program because I love DCS! It's so much fun :)

    Checked the reputation and saw it was two people who gave me a bad reputation because I posted something bad about 2.0. WOW! I was told to report it here by IT with DCS and people with Napoleon complexes decide to give bad reputations because someone said something bad about the product. For the record... I LOVE DCS WORLD!! I fly almost every day, and I love the product. I simply was frustrated that I bought the product months ago and I've had so many issues with it, but I don't have issues with the other versions of the software. I didn't think that was worthy of a bad reputation. Kind of ironic that one of them were cursing at me in the reasoning. Sounds like that person has more issues about professionalism than I do! I won't post their names or anything, but that's pretty sad they had nothing better to do but give me a bad reputation for no reason.

    I guess I'll have to upgrade at some point this year. Gotta save up first to upgrade my PC. In the meantime I guess I'll just be flying 1.5 I'll definitely be finding out who gave me a bad reputation on here. Pretty sad that people do that. Even if someone was yelling at me I wouldn't do that to someone.

    I have not tried re-installing... I have an ASUS with Windows 8, intel core i7, 8GB ram, Nvidia Geforce 840m video card. Have all the requirements for the system and have not had any issues with 1.5 or 1.0. Submitted a ticket for IT and they did not give an answer, just simply said to post something on here, which as you can imagine is frustrating to email IT and get no help. I'll try to uninstall and reinstall tomorrow and see if that helps any. Very interesting that before my post I had a "green" reputation power and now it's red saying I have "shameless behavior." Kind of sad that I get a "poor reputation" because I am stating that I am having issues with their software. That should be addressed as well. I could be very upset, but I am not because I have and will always handle myself in a professional manner. Interesting ED....

    Am I the only person here having issues with lag in 2.0??? 1.5 works fine, but as soon as I get in 2.0 I can't even fly because the lag is so bad. Even if I get it up and running it gets unflyable when I get near other aircraft (either AI, humans, or whatever). 2.0 seems to be a lot of issues right now. Sucks when you spend so much money for something and it doesn't work....
