  1. Going to bump this since it's a capability of the aircraft which seems to be missing?
  2. They should start integrating these mods with the main game so we can use them on multiplayer servers.
  3. Hi there, Can someone confirm the method to employ dumb bombs with the auxiliary gunsight? The manual does not detail its operation, it actually says the only method of releasing bombs in the mirage is CCIP or CCRP. But it has been stated to me that all aircraft have an "iron sight" method of releasing bombs, similarly to how you would with the F5. My method: * I loaded up with 8 x MK82 Snakeeyes * Switch on the auxiliary gunsight with the HAUSSE switch. * Set the depression for 150 with the HAUSSE knob which is approximately correct for 420knts and 600ft release altitude * Select radio altimeter, on the altimeter switch selector. * Switch on radio altimeter, with the radio altimeter switch. * select BF1 on the PCA * TAS/RS should not be relevant -- should they be disabled? * Set the fusing to ret on the PPA, set the quantity to 8, and the interval to 6. * Master arm on. When overflying the target, depressing and holding the trigger, the bombs do not release. The only method I have found to get the bombs to release, is to press WPNCMD FWD, to enable CCIP, then press WPNCMD REAR more, to disable CCIP and bring back up the aux gunsight, now the bombs will release as expected. Can anyone advise, is there a method to correctly employ the bombs with the aux gunsight? Is my method correct and is this a bug?
  4. I updated OpenBeta maybe just over a week ago, and I've launched it today to find that it wants to download 22GB, which is 45GB unpacked, my current installation folder is only 45GB. Shirley some mistake? Seems like you have contributed 45GB of new content, or I'm entirely reinstalling the game for some reason?
  5. As per subject, the gun option seems to have disappeared from the stores menu when in A2G mode. I have not included a track file, because it seems unnecessary.
  6. If you fly at just under 100% engine power, and descend until you trigger the low-altitude-warning and the master warning light is illuminated. Then if you click the master warning button to silence the LAW. You get a repeated audible 'water' callout followed by a 'over temp' alert. Several of the lights illuminate on the right hand side near the engine info panel. To correct you have to reduce engine RPM for a few seconds, then the audible warnings and lights will cease and you can raise engine RPM back to previous levels.

  7. I can't find a detailed operations manual anywhere and that's on their feature list. I also can't load a GBU-54 which is also on their feature list.
  8. All of that makes sense. Except it all appears to be talking about prior to engaging AFC, AFC capturing pitch/roll on engagement. Not AFC capturing roll forces while engaged. Is there anything which specifically confirms that?
  9. It's because the AFC behaviour changed. Previously AFC would ignore stick input up to a certain threshold, anything over the threshold would AFC would disengage. AFC would only retrim when it was initially engaged. So any incorrect deadzone settings which were allowing stick input were ignored, masking incorrect deadzone settings. Now, while active AFC accepts stick input up to a certain threshold, and retrims your pitch/roll angle based on that input. So if your deadzone isn't big enough, a slight stick input will cause AFC to keep retrimming in the direction of the stick input and your pitch or roll will keep increasing as a result. If you re-read the thread this has been explained a bunch of times already.
  10. I have to say I find the new system to be worse than the original. If you don't put enough stick pressure to disengage AFC, it retrims the aircraft for your new roll angle. I often find on approach to bombing the AFC will initally stay engaged, retrim me for some odd angle before disengaging and as a result I am usually out of balance on an attack run. I wonder if this is simulating real behaviour, I could understand trimming for roll when initially engaging AFC and you are banked at certain roll angle which is over threshold for straight and level -- you would need this functionality to maintain orbits. However AFC retriming from level flight to a new roll angle seems like it is undesirable behaviour to me. In other words: * Desirable: Bank, enable AFC -> AFC trims aircraft for current bank angle. * Undesirable: Straight and level, enable AFC -> AFC trims aircraft for straight and level. Input roll pressure, AFC retrims for new bank angle. And yes I'm aware of the change that AFC retrims on low pressure stick inputs, and I agree this is handy for adjusting pitch. But roll? Not so much.
  11. Thanks Luke, this seems to explain the behaviour for me too as to why the nose was drifting. I increased my deadzones by 3x from 3 to 10 and the autopilot works as expected. Apparently this was brought about through this observation: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=275178 And they fixed it in response, but omitted the behaviour change from the DCS release notes: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=279106
  12. Any stick input would disengage it. It's not working properly as it shouldn't be drifting like that at all.
  13. Nope, no stick pressure, deadzones set and working. It seems to trim the aircraft but doesn't hold attitude the nose just drifts.
