  1. Many thanks what you say makes sense. I hope ED looks at this and finds a way to prevent Ai using APKWS rockets on targets its not designed for i.e. Tanks or amend the radio command somehow.
  2. I have been trying a couple of the Instant Action missions for training using the A-10Cii. I have noticed when I ask my wingman to attack tanks with Missiles he normally uses the APKWS M151L rocket and not the Maverick (he has 4 loaded). How can I force my wingman to use Mavericks against tanks
  3. Thanks I didn't realise they changed the mission for the A-10C II, changing the time of day makes sense why the lighting is different :)
  4. Thank you Hive for pointing that out, that was my question. Why is there a difference between the two A-10C variants in visibility, is this a modification to make the A-10C II more realistic ? BuzzU - I use zoom
  5. When flying the A-10C I often use the 'Easy-East Georgia-Spring' instant action mission for refresher training, so I know this mission reasonably well. I have noticed when flying the A-10C II I can hardly see the two supply trucks until I'm practically on top of them, they appear to be a lighter grey and merge into the ground background, same for the Patrol (second target in mission). If I switch back to using the original A-10C the trucks are a lot more visible - very strange.
  6. I'm currently using the Stable version of DCS 2.5 but as someone has already posted this version has not been updated since December. I appreciate the Beta version will include some bugs but I would like to try some of the new features added during the Beta process since December. How can I start using the current Beta version of DCS 2.5 ?
  7. Many thanks for your feedback on the GBU-38. Its strange how some people have no problems using this weapon. I use the JDAM as per pages 563/564 of the A-10C user manual. The graphic of the HUD shows the aircraft at 6580 ft with the min and max carets far apart, this is how it was for me in the past but not now, at this height the two carets are barely apart. Thanks BIGNEWY, I hope the team look at this as a matter of urgency as its definitely floored compared to previous versions and I've been flying the Warthog from day one.
  8. Hi, I have just got back into DCS after some time doing other things. I always use the Easy-East Georgia- Spring mission for refresher training have been doing this for years. On waypoint 3 Patrol as Rockets seem to be useless I use one of my GBU-38's to take out a truck and all of the soldiers, then come back and take out the other truck with guns - always previously worked a treat. Now with the latest 'Stable' version GBU-38's miss every time. On waypoint 5 I use my wingman to take out the tanks with guided bombs - he dropped two GBU-12's and killed two tanks with direct hits then he used a GBU-38 JDAM and the bomb went into the other field ?? I found a thread going back to April 2019 with people having the same problem but couldn't find any discussion on this subject since. The GBU-38 was always my weapon of choice for static targets so I know how to use them (even went back to the manual to make sure), but something has gone very wrong with the accuracy of these bombs. Have DCS made any acknowledgment of this problem, as no fix seems to have come out after several updates.
  9. I recently got back into the Ka-50 Blackshark after a couple of years absence and was trying the Instant Action - Nevada - Shooting Range mission. We both sat in a Hover about 6 clicks from the target site and I asked him to attack ground targets. His response was to fly around me in circles at low level, firing of chaff as if it was confetti and then crashed into the ground :huh: This didn't give me a lot of confidence that the wingman AI has improved much during those two years. Just to confirm I am using the latest 'Stable version' of DCS World. Glen
  10. Hi I've just started getting into the Mark 9 Spitfire so bought the Normandy Map and WW2 Assets Pack for $60. I thought the pack would have at least come with a few missions, but nothing shows under the Missions tab other than two Caucasus missions which I already had. I know there is a purchasable Epsom Campaign but I'm a bit disappointed DCS haven't included a few more missions especially with the Normandy map - or have I missed something :huh: Glen
  11. I thought I had two versions of DCS on my hard drive, one 2.5 Beta and one 2.5 Release version, both in separate folders. When I click on the DCS 2.5 Beta icon is does not update to 2.5.1. If I go into the 2.5 Beta folder \bin and click DCS_updater it still doesn't update tp 2.5.1. How can I tell if I have a beta version of DCS World 2.5 installed ? When I load the beta version, the version number at the bottom right of the GUI says 2.5.0 15365
  12. That's how I remember it from previous versions. Never sent a recording before, I'll look into it.
  13. I have just returned to DCS since 2.5 Release came out and trying to relearn the A-10C. When trying the Unguided Bombs I select the MK82 and CCIP, but when flying straight and level according to the Attitude Indicator the dashed Projected Bomb Impact Line is angled to the left or right and not vertical. On page 538 paragraph 4 of the manual it says this only occurs when banked slightly, during testing I was definitely flying level. Is this a bug or am I missing something ?
