  1. That was a strange thing I have also noticed - entire DCS folder/group from Start menu simply vanished (Start -> All Programs). Nowhere to be found. And it was in a custom subfolder of Start menu. Tried search functions and results were negative. So, repair was performed through command prompt!
  2. Yesterday I had an issue with a new DCS update (and I hope it will not be repeated) - update process started regurarly, but then I got a message that update is 50+ GB in size, and that available space on my dedicated SSD is 10 GB. So, update process would not continue. By trying solutions alternate to bying a new drive (which is absolutely not an option now), I have tried to perform repair which would also offer to delete all not-original files (and free up some, but not the needed 50 GB of space). Surely, there was nothing to delete, since all skins, cockpits, missions, etc. reside in Saved games folder on a separate drive. And it sucessfully "repaired" my installation to existing version (without update). So, the solution that worked was that I have moved entire Mods folder (150 GB) to another drive. Update started, but it was then 170 GB in size and it had successfully completed. At the end, I have ended up with additional 4 GB of free space. Eventually, I have deleted entire backup (moved) Mods folder because there were no controller input files, skins, cockpits, mods or whatever custom-created or modified files there. Hope this helps someone with similar issues. And I really wish that someone thought a little bit more before releasing such an update.
  3. The most popular server at the moment. :)
  4. Hacking/intrusion attempts into personal PCs and networks are quite frequent.
  5. Yes, I would also expect that ED fixes it. I have been using Kaspersky products both at my home (personal edition) and at my work for almost 20 years (corporate edition). I have tried various other Antivirus/Anti-Malware/Firewall solutions during those years, but none came close to both efficiency and reliability of Kaspersky. Not only it is not a s.... software as you called it, but one of the best out there. But, let's set aside my personal experience. There are many reviews/comparisons by highly reputable sources to read. I have noticed that someone said that Malwarebytes (which is top-notch AV/malware cleaning solution) also shows positives. My all-around AV protection is always turned on. Right now, DCS folder and all DCS applications are excluded, and I'm not one bit happy about that. So, I expect software developer (ED in this case) to cooperate with AV software providers to prevent these issues, as many have been doing. Have no doubt that AV software providers do that all the time by either cooperating with software developers, their users or by studying their application's reports, if available.
  6. Sorry, forgot to mention - it happens in current Openbeta 2.5.6.47404.
  7. When you turn on IFF Transponder power and then press IFF identification button (Ident), game freezes and crashes to desktop. Should be easily reproducible.
  8. Can confirm with S-24 rockets on Caucasus map. I can arm them, but the moment I switch weapon selector to them, the game freezes indefinitely. It happens with both or either fixed net or piper turned on.
  9. Since the latest Open Beta update, I am having serious problems with FFB when flying JF-17. Force feedback forces are quite erratic. During a turn sudden loss of feedback force is followed by a sudden increase of feedback force, intermittently. On landing, joystick becomes really stiff. Such sudden jerks and variable forces complicate flying JF-17 a great deal. The issue is present only with JF-17 after the last update. Edit: Mistakenly posted here. Please, move to appropriate section.
  10. From today. Persian Gulf map, Al Minhad AB. While playing with Combined Arms, I have noticed following: - Ranging targets behind (chickenwire) AB perimeter fence, returned range is to a fence; - Most, if not all, shells and missiles detonate on the fence; - You cannot drive a tank through a fence (although, if you ram it at high speed it catches fire... :huh: only to resume being intact). Basically, it acts as a thick concrete wall you can see through. On Caucasus map, recently, it took quite an effort to drive a tank through perimeter fence, but it is possible. On Persian Gulf map, it is not. Except, sometimes for AI controlled ground units. Also, you cannot drive a tank over low bushes. They act like big stones. Both fences and bushes are impervious to HE shells. I really hope that there is a solution for this. As it is now, it really reduces play enjoyment of JTAC and ground unit commanders.
  11. I am trying to modify Ka-50 cockpit textures using description.lua generated by edmodelviewer2. However, which ever I texture I modify and implement through Customized cockpit option, Shkval stops working. There is no camera feed or indications/symbols on screen, just a reflection and a slight change of brightness when turning it on or off. Shkval works with default cockpit textures. Have tried using different individual textures, restarting the game each time, but the result is the same. Any help would be appreciated.

    April Fools!

    Just saw it while in Caucasus. Totally surprised me, but was quick to make a couple of screenshots.
