  1. When I perform the warning light test when the engine is not running the indicator light FÄLLD LAST is not illuminated but when I have started the engine the FÄLLD LAST is illuminated when I press KONTR LAMPTABLÅ. It should illuminate before engine start also I guess. The indicator light SYRGAS and OLJETRYCK should illuminate after switching on HUVUDSTRÖM and the lights goes off: -SYRGAS when the Syrgas valve is open. -Oljetryck when the engine is spooling up during engine start.
  2. Hi!! I wish for more ATC radiocommands to use for instance like they have in Falcon BMS. -Would be nice to be able to request for another runway for landing or take off . -If you make a landing and turn around on the runway for another take off you can´t choose for another take off clearence. -Would be nice to get QNH in hpa for us who flies Viggen. -Different channels/frequencis for example Ground, Tower, Departure and Approach.
  3. I can see the numbers clear so it has nothing to do with the texture setting, at least for me. I would like to have the number more in white instead of grey, think that would make it more easier to see the numbers in the window.
  4. Will try the IFF button next time I fly the Viggen.
  5. Also I use the HP Reverb and it´s hard to see the numbers in daylight and impossible in nightime, if I use the "tool" flashlight though in DCS it´s readable. Would be nice if the numbers could be more visable in daylight.
  6. Thank you and as always nice work on the manuals you make for us.
  7. I havn´t tried to push that button so I don´t know if I got CTD on my computer but on the patch DCS Open Beta released in the middle of January that was supposed to be fixed.
  8. This is a problem that has been for a long time now and has been reported as a bug before when you fly with radarrange set to 60km. I notice it when I fly with 60 km radarrange, a huge drop on FPS, especially when I am at ground or fly on low level,and as soon as I change to another range from 60km up or down in range the FPS get normal again and when switching back to 60km the FPS drops rapidly. Don´t know if this is a ED problem or HB problem. Hope this will be fixed soon.
  9. I know this is a stupid answer but are you sure you enter the Longitude before the Latitude in the Datapanel??
  10. I haven´t flew mission six of thunder campaign, but I flew just now with high drag boms in Plan mode and in Nav mode and it worked just fine. I tried to set the weaponselector in RR mode and in both Nav and Anf mode the HUD didn´t change from Nav mode but you wrote that you hade the weapon selector in Plan mode so I guess it´s a bug in the campaign. Have you tried to make your own mission, does it behave the same way like in the campaign mission??
  11. Thanks David OC! I would like to enter information about waypoints and other information in a planner so it would appear in the game when i start it so I can enter information in the Data panel without have to take my VR off and I still have to do that using the scratchpad.
  12. Ok, Thank you. It was a training mission for single player but is it possible to enter a message in the mission planner??
  13. Hello! I fly the Viggen module and when I flew a mission the otherday I got a window in the upper right corner with runway data with cordinates. I fly with VR and since I want to be able to program the Data panel without take my VR off to look at a paper with the data, I want to enter on the Datapanel, I thought that it would be very handy to see the information on the screen. Is there anyone out there who knows how to make that window to appear and how to enter that information. Thank you!!
  14. Does the Illuminationbomb illuminate when you release it? It´s still dark around the ship when I release it. Has been a bug for quite sometime that the bombs releases but doesn´t illuminate which makes it pointless to use. And also when you reload the aircraft it doesn´t release at all when you make another attack. Haven´t tried the bombs for a couple of weeks though so I don´t know if they works after the latest patch.
  15. There´s a severe drop in framerate when you use 60 km distance of the radar, has been for quite sometime and has been in several bugsreports. Hope it will be fixed soon :)
  16. After takeoff the airplane switch to the first waypoint at M0.35 and if the waypoint isn´t ahead of you, you get turncommando in the SI or the HUD which means that the presentation with the poles and the dot between the poles wanders to the right or left depending if the waypoint is to the left or to the right of you. You can also look at the ADI and the flight director needles or at the CI with the Index for the commanded course the direction of the waypoint. When you have the waypoint ahead of you the tadpoles with the dot is centered at the HUD, the flightdirector needle is in center at the ADI and the Commanded course index at the CI is at 12 a´clock. This is normal and you turn aganst the dot at the HUD to get to the waypoint.
  17. Hi Nighthawk!! I flew a coupple of times and I tested the M/71 Low Drag bomb. -I have tested aginst a non moving ship that I have preplanned as a waypoint in the mission planner and in the aircraft programmed as a target point. I flew against the target and when I selected the RR mode on the weaponselector and changed the mastermode to ANF I got the 3km line ok and the presentation and the attack worked as it should. -I have also done other flights according to the first one but when I have flown out over the sea towards the first ship as a target waypoint I have used the radar control handle and swithed from T0 to T1 and moved the crosshair ta another ship locked it in TV and released to T0 again. A new circle over the new target has been visable and the crosshair dissapears when you release from TV to T0 as it should and only the 3km line is visable. So far so good and it works as it should. But when you select another Mastermode or change the weapenselector the 3km line still appears and I´m not sure it should.
  18. I flew and tested with M/71 High Drag Bomb and I got the target firing line appearing on the CI. Haven´t tested the Low Drag Bomb yet. Did you use 15km radar range??
  19. Honestly I haven´t tried the FR24 in the game yet so I don´t know wheather or not it works how it should be working. In the real aircraft When you use The FR24 for communication in backup channel H,E,F or G you use the pushbutton SM next to the button TRÅD to communicate and not Radio transmit/receive button on the Control stick. The Radio transmit/receive button on the Contol stick is used to communicate with FR22 and also when you use the minussign pushed in on FR22 and manually set the frequency set on the bottom left side on the front panel.
  20. If you look at the Weapons Panel, Targeting mode selector (MÅLVAL) is used for the RB04 only and Preparation (PREP) is used for RB15 and BK90 and doesn´t make any selections for the General Purpose Bombs or Sprängbomber. With the Release mode selector you choose between realeasing the 15kg "dummybomb" or practisebomb either one or two bombs depending on choosing Serie or Imp. The ordinary 120kg Sprängbomb or General Purpose boms always release all at once.
  21. I haven´t looked at the FPS but It drops alot especially when I fly low over water with radarrange 60 km and when I change radarrange to 120,30 or 15 km it works all fine again. I fly with VR and I don´t know if it occurs flying without VR. There is a tread about this problem in "BUGS AND PROBLEMS" and I don´t know how to explain it but the picture gets weird as well.
  22. think it´s a pitty that the Viggen don´t updates as frequent as before but I guess that the F14 Tomcat take most of Heatblurs time right now of Which I can understand. Though We are a lot of paying customers of the Viggen and I think that we can expect updates in the future since there´s still a lot of bugs, I love the Viggen and I would enjoy it even more when It´s as perfect as it´s orginal. Maybe heatblur is working on a big update, would be nice to get information from them once in a while. A few bugs, several of them I reported about when the Viggen was released and still hasn´t been updated. WARNING LIGHTS: - "SYRGAS" or Oxygen is illuminated when"HUVUDSTRÖM" or Main Power is ON and the oxygen level is low or the Oxygen valve is shut of and the light goes off when the valve is open during prestart. -"Oljetryck" or oilpressure is also illuminated when Huvudström or Main Power is on and the light goes off when the engine spools up and build up oilpressure. -"MAN BR REG" The light goes off when the engine spools up past 9 percent RPM and that is correct but the light also illuminates when the emergency switch "BRÄREGL" is switched from "AUT" to "MAN" position. - I haven´t tried "NÖDTRIM ROLL" but have tried "NÖDTRIM TIPP" and when you do that you can´t trim with the hat on the stick and that is correct but when you after that pull out and then press back in the fuse "TRIMSYST" you should be able to trim the aircraqft with the hat again but in the simulator you can´t. -Still problem with graphics when you have the radar in 60km radarrange. -Lysbomb doesn´t illuminate after first release and when you rearm with Lysbomb it doesn´t release at all at second attack. - Might be Eagle Dynamic that has to make an update in TILS. When you make a "LANDNING NAV" landing and it change from LB to LF on some airports the toughdown point is on the other end of the runway which makes you come in way to high over the threshold eventhough you set the right runway in the datapanel. -Hard to see the GROUP" and "BASE" selector window and it´s numbers when you fly during nighttime.
  23. I read in the SFI, description of the Viggen that there are two buttons that´s used for push to talk. The Push to talk button on the stick is used when you want to communicate with FR22 and the button labled SM on FR24, used for transmit/recieve, is used when you use FR24 for communicating on the backup channels H,E,F, or G. The button labled TRÅD is used to talk to the groundcrew when they are connected with cable from their hedsets to the outlets on either wings. When you press that button in The game you get to the Communication Menu but it would be nice if they could programme that button in the game to that when you press the button you get to the Ground Crew Menu right away.
  24. In the real aircraft it is a button you don´t press on. When you trim the stick in roll to the left or right the"button" goes down automaticly and when you trim the stick back to it´s centre position it pops back up again automaticly. In the game however I don´t know how it´s suppose to work but it would be nice if it was a pressable button to centre the stick in it´s neutral position in Roll.
  25. The IFF Panel Hi!! You find the IFF panel on the right hand side panel in the cockpit. The panel is marked with number 24 Manöverpanel IK-Utrustning. There are two knobs. The left one says FRÅN or OFF position and TILL or ON Position. The right knob is marked with numbers from 1-11 and there you set the code. The IK lamp or IFF lamp supervise the function of the IFF or IK which is the name for it in Swedish.
