    Making a return to the forums after 6 to 9 months of real world tasking, and................................................... BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMP. Would still love to see this (or at least see an update from an ED dev/mod) added. PS. Great to hear the change to the A10's engine after getting DCS up to the most current OB version. Having a play with all the new toys for the Viper and seeing all the work that has been done over those past 6 to 9 months. Great job, looking forward to seeing what else is incoming. v/r Ziptie
  2. Press and hold on the OSB that is highlighted (where the MAV would be displayed after the "swap" would have been performed). Then select MAV as the display that you want in that place. Voila, you are good to go and can proceed through the training mission. That is the short and sweet version. I think you are also asked to display the TGP on the opposing page, which can be done by the same method (press and hold OSB, select appropriate sensor to display, etc). I spent a short time looking for the other thread, gave up - figured it would be the least I could do, to give a basic rundown in case you might have been unaware that you can actually "customize" each MFD to display what you want it to. Cheers, Ziptie
  3. You can progress progress, you simply need to put the MAV display on correct MFD. No, it isn’t “fluid” now with the correct HOTAS implementations being reflected in DCS - but you absolutely can progress and complete. I posted the steps to do this, in another thread bringing this issue up. Yes, it would be great if they update the training mission, but they’ve got plenty of their plate at the moment and undoubtedly this is a low priority item for their team. Cheers, Ziptie
  4. Yup, mouse wheel scroll works on rotary knobs for me in the Hornet as well. Cheers, Ziptie
  5. As another stated, this is no longer a realistic function. Coolie switch aft/down is how you SOI HMCS. Cheers, Ziptie
  6. Also a big THANK YOU! I had the same issue (although my "border" was blue). Your modification of line in the .lua file worked for me. Guessing they will fix this in the future. Clouds are still very jittery for me, but baby steps I suppose. I'm sure they'll all be fixed when I get back in a few months. Cheers, Ziptie
  7. They are in his signature... Cheers, Ziptie
  8. Maybe this could be of use to one or both of you. Not my image, all credit goes to the creator. Cheers, Ziptie
  9. Oh, well if you sorted it out then I won't bother running the mission again. I just briefly scanned the link you attached - and for sure, if range is too far out when trying to created a SPI via HUD, it is invalid. When slewing the TDC with HUD SOI, you can tell if the computer is able to compute a slant range, as it will have an 'x' inside mark or not. If there is an 'x' in the middle, it is an invalid computation. Cheers, Ziptie
  10. Ah. Think I created a mark point via the HMCS at that point - but don't recall. Last time I tried the mission, was when I created the message in this thread giving the step(s) to get past where people were getting stuck initially. The next time I am able to fly, I'll give this mission a quick go again and see if I can provide any additional help/guidance for the issue you are disclosing. Cheers, Ziptie
  11. Eh? I'm not tracking with that..... Are you talking about creating a mark point? Glad you were able to get past the "hang up point" until they sort out their training mission change(s). Cheers, Ziptie
  12. And there is your problem. Cheers, Ziptie
  13. The FLIR isn't displayed on the HUD. It is displayed on a DDI (MFD). I believe this is where you are getting mixed answers from some. When FLIR has TDC priority, the radar antenna elevation is used to zoom in and zoom out. Whatever key bind that you have set for radar antenna elevation control, is what will change the zoom on the FLIR display. Also, RAID/FLIRFOV will change the FLIR from narrow to wide field of view, when TDC priority is assigned to FLIR. Cheers, Ziptie
  14. EDIT: Thought this a comparison of the XSAF server - to another. Disregard, looks like it could be a fun SP campaign. Cheers, Ziptie
  15. Definitely the wrong forum for this "request" - but if you are already utilizing the unlimited weapons "feature (cheat)" - the least you can do is reenter the codes. It doesn't really take that long, and is something you should practice anyways - for once you step up to not using unlimited weapons, as you are required to do it upon rearming anyways..... Cheers, Ziptie
