  1. experiencing same. the selector knob switches to vhf for no reason.
  2. after restarting a simple user made mission, sunlight becomes dim. after half a minute or so, it goes brighter. i remember, there was a bugfix related to this in previous patches. the bug is still there.
  3. my mission with ju-88s and an escort d9. during my attack run with an allied plane, they freeze for some seconds hanging in the air then immediately accelerate. it's like multiplayer lag alas in single player mission. attached the mission. p47_normandy_takeoff.miz
  4. hi thanks for looking into this. i don't have evidence. it was a gut feeling and some irrelevant numbers. won't bother you further.
  5. plane climbs at 20m/s between the 280-180 km/h at 1.2 ata until stall. to me it felt like levitating cause it gained way too much altitude until stall. attached a track file. 109_lowspeed_climb.trk
  6. just for fun, i set up a sead group of russian planes and a us hawk site. when a kh missile reaches in the immediate vicinity of hawk site, a stinger missile is fired at the incoming missile and can destroy it just prior to impact with its target.
  7. in f3 view, when i cut or boost the throttle, i can hear the response of the engine instantaneously regardless of the distance of plane and camera. shouldn't there be a delay?
  8. in marianas lagoon patrol instant action mission, after shooting down fake zeros, my ai wingmen try to reform formation. when i give them random manouver orders and then order to join up, fps drops significantly due to cpu usage. i usually get highest framerate by looking up to the sky minimizing object count. even looking at empty sky, fps is stuck at 30-40, while max fps i get is 110(not vr).
  9. i believe ray marching is used for creating volumetric clouds which has been around for a decade. it can run on fairly older machines. i wonder how sims didn't use it then.
  10. i managed to jam landing gear then land at hawkinge airfield. plane landed on its belly, propeller damaged. but the plane continued to roll all along the field, as if it was on wheels. it also responded to wheel brake. p47_landinggear.trk
  11. in mission editor, i could choose the plane as a flyable module and fly it in a mission although i dont own the module. also when mission starts, cockpit is missing from the 3d model. nice interior modelling btw.
  12. the update process in the past would require you to download all the files. i think, the file structure was also different then. like when there was a map update, it would download a large portion of map data. the current updater and file structure allows smaller downloads, that patches the relevant part of modules or maps. now, you don't have to know which files are to be downloaded. because when the updater runs, it initially downloads delta files that are maybe 6mb large, these contain which files have changed with the update. so the current updater can already determine the necessary files. allowing the same update from an external disk would provide so much flexibility to update process. thanks
  13. thanks. it could be done, but most of the download would be redundant.
  14. i have a very slow connection where i play dcs, however i have access to better connection in my office. i would like an option to download updates or modules to an external drive and install to my dcs computer. the updater already knows which files are to be downloaded, so it can generate an index file to an external disk. with that index file, updater should be able to download necessary files to any computer. the rest of the work would be to allow the update from an external disk.
  15. in marianas islands, weather editor temperature settings will not go below 20C regardless of date. is it true, global warming simulated?
  16. i had the same thing in todays mp session. trackfile is over 5mb so i didnt include it. engine seized up right after i decided to open oxygen valve at 5km. temp gauges were fine until seizure and in a second they went over 120c
  17. this bug appeared after plane flew through power lines. proller blades were damaged visually displayed with bent blades on top of normal spinning blade animation. plane flew without power loss.
  18. This is some minor observation. I shot an ai p51 in 1v1 training mission, and chopped its tail and part of the fuselage. Then it passed through my 109s cockpit and inlflicted no damage or collision.
  19. This curve value, or any other modification to axis causes drastic changes in trim values. in default linear axis, a little nose up trim(pointing first line up on elevator trim indicator) while taking off prevents undesired pitch up or down. I had difficulty in trimming plane with control curves. with the same take off condition, i had to apply heavy nose down trim to prevent heavy pitch up behaviour. Is this an expected experience with ms ffb2?
  20. i didn't know pilots actually bailed out from inverted plane. yet, there are instances in new dm, ai pilot decides to bail out from an undamaged plane, inverted. by the way, i was waiting for new dm to play your campaigns. gonna start with epsom.
  21. in the instant mission bfm 1v1 for k4 against an ai mustang, ai pilot tries flat scissors to force opponent into an overshoot, which is fine. but sometimes while rolling, it stays in an inverted position. during this manouver, ai pilot ditches the plane, while the plane is inverted, regardless of damage.
  22. looks like club sandwich.
  23. its crazy they model a beautiful plane, yet leave a single problem to bug the users for a long time. it doesnt bother me while flying, but for combat, its literally painful trying to see through ugly reflections, hilarious scratches on canopy, banding propeller. a kind person on user files section has modded props for all the warbirds and some helicopters and while its amateurish, it solves the problem. i really cant understand why this was not done by the company itself.
  24. After landing and shutting the engine, i ejected the pilot. I still had control over control surfaces, walking outside the plane. And after ejecting, an instructor pilot appears on the back seat, which was not there during the flight.
  25. It means priorities have shifted to elsewhere. You may have read the reddit post on hoggit, people were complaining about bugs. It was decisive on ed management that they would focus on bug fixing. We have three hundred less bugs now and zilch agm.
