  1. Thank you again, most helpful.
  2. Thank you, I now understand your use of "the window". While I'm at it, there are 4 possible bindings for force trim two of which are 'attitude and/or altitude'. A third possible binding acts to recenter the trim. Do you happen to know what the fourth force trim setting is for? Thanks, florate
  3. Does a mod exist to change the labels in the Anton cockpit to English? Your idea to toggle the existing labels to Engish momentarily then back to original is clever.
  4. Is there an English cockpit patch for the Ka-50 Open Beta 2.7
  5. Moving DCS from G:\ drive (SSD) which was almost full to C:\ drive (SSD), which had significantly more free space, reduced DCS load time by 3/4. The only problem left to solve is how to get rid of the six or so "DCSDLC Registration" screens, each requiring a click to dismiss, that interrupt DCS startup?
  6. I am not sure what brand and model SSD drive I am using but I am pretty sure it is one of the common brands and not a cut rate. It turns out that my G: drive where DCS lives is almost full and I have 1.57 TB free on the C:\ drive so I guess I will move Eagle Dynamics from G:\ to C:\. I am pretty sure C:\ is an SSD. Two questions: 1. Can I simply move the existing Eagle Dynamics folder from one drive to the next 2. Does the path I most commonly see suggested: C:\,owner,user,saved games have any bearing on loading time or does it matter? Thank you both for your input, florate
  7. Thank you draconus, I will try making more disc space on my SSD. Not so sure about how to exclude DCS main folder and \saved games\DCS folder from AV scanning (Windows Defender). My present path is: "G:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\bin\DCS_updater.exe" Do you see a faster path to speed things up? Thank you, florate
  8. After I "start" DCS the splash screen comes up and from there it takes 5 minutes minimum to be able to click "FLY". I am running TrackIR v5, and Voice Attack, one monitor, ThrustMaster HOTAS Warthog and the following system specs: BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. 4901, 5/14/2014 Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4960X CPU @ 3.60GHz, 3601 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 12 Logical Processor(s) OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041 BaseBoard Product RAMPAGE IV EXTREME Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 64.0 GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DCS resides on one hard drive: Drive G: File System NTFS Size 573.90 GB (616,216,653,824 bytes) Free Space 61.55 GB (66,089,279,488 bytes) Would appreciate any ideas to reduce load time. Thanks, florate
  9. My Warthog throttle levers are not binding to the 47's RPM and Manifold Pressure (throttle) same as "hughesj2" complaint. Please describe steps to: 'manually pick the correct axis for prop/throttle'? Thanks, florate
  10. Thank you for your suggested video, it helps and is appreciated. florate
  11. Thank you AMEDooley, I have downloaded the 476th checklist and it appears to be very complete and just what I am looking for. florate
  12. Thank you Theodore42, your NATOPS suggestion is very helpful. florate
  13. F/A-18C Preflight Checklist? Have I overlooked the obvious or is there not a preflight checklist for the airplane?
