  1. Of all the items I have bought and used over the years, the Spitfire is the only one that does not work at all. I have tried all the suggested ways to improve flight but to no avail. Every other plane I own flies perfectly well using my Warthog setup, the Spitfire defies all tweaks and flight curve inputs. I give up. I have the Spitfire in IL Sturmovik BofS and it is a joy to fly.
  2. After the trial period ended yesterday, I now have to spend ten minutes or more logging in and clicking all the aircraft etc that I don't own. How do I delete them completely ?
  3. After starting again from scratch, I find that my planes and other items will not install, this is because of updates. How do I reinstall them now?:cry:
  4. Hey! it was obvious! Yes, of course. Never thought of that and it was obvious. I couldn't even taxi to take off. I had just given up. Thanks a bundle :doh:
  5. This is a strange one! I now find that DCS World will not open if Track IR is activated. Turn off Track IR and it's fine ?:helpsmilie:
  6. I have never used TARGET but would love to know how it works. I have downloaded CTS and followed it best I can but not sure exactly what to do next? I believe that entering each aircraft I own and allowing the software to write the script. But then what? Any help gratefully accepted.
  7. Because I was fast running out of space, I moved DCS to another drive. Every body assured me this was easy, just change the shortcut to the new drive. I right clicked the short cut and in properties changed the location from F to E, which was advised. It gave me an error notification. The game opens but nothing works, click on anything, no go! However, when closing the game using Task Master, I clicked Dcs to close it, the game then worked perfectly. Which is ok but I don't really want to do this every time. Is there something I am missing?
  8. I have just bought a new pc, all the bells and whistles. Three other flight sims work perfectly and graphicly perfect. DCS World, crashes one minute after start. Cannot find the cause. Have completely deleted the app and reinstalled beta version, no difference, crashes within a minute. The fault is with my pc but I cannot find a solution. Any advice please.
  9. Apologies Darcwaynard Sorry Bro, very flippant of me. You were quite correct. When I looked more closely at my module manager, it clearly said, Download. So I did. Everything I bought is now in the sim. Cheers:thumbup:
  10. Downloaded I'm sure my first sentence stated that they are all downloaded. They are NOT appearing within the sim and certainly in none of the missions.:doh:
  11. Recently re downloaded the sim after pc problems. All my planes appear to have down loaded but do not show within the menus. Neither in any mission or other situation?:helpsmilie:
  12. Found it at last. Thanks all for infinite patience.
  13. Sorry dburne, searched for the VR re- centre and Vr zoom. I couldn't find them. Please elucidate for this 76 year old pilot.
  14. Oh my God! It's making me feel sick. Absolutely incredible! I tried sitting facing the screen but sometimes I am side ways in the cockpit. How do I adjust the view?
  15. Yes, there it was.Thanks again. Update, I got the game to start, however, I was in a hanger with an F-15 but the actual game screen was behind me? I need a lot of help!!!
  16. Thanks all. deburne, when I click settings in the Rift ,the following doesn't show. "allow third party software, or unknow sources" checked in the Rift's settings ( from the desktop Oculus software).
  17. Just received and setup Oculus rift. When I clicked the DCS to fly,Oculus home popped up and I couldn't access anything and the mouse stopped working. Jesus! I need help?:doh:
  18. I want to use the Spitfire in the Charnwood campaign, but it doesn't load or show it? the P 51 is listed. Any suggestions?:helpsmilie:
  19. I have tried over and over but cannot get enough speed to take off. The problem seems to be the brake lever on the joystick, it's highlighted with brackets but for the life of me I cannot disengage it. Please anyone tell me what to do.:helpsmilie:
  20. Thanks for your suggestion but you misunderstood my problem. The boxes that show when you need to change aircraft controls for your joystick settings for instance. These are too small for a 76 year old guy to read three feet from the screen. What I am trying to find if anyone else has solved the problem of best resolution, while still being able to interact with settings etc.
  21. Have been trying to find the best resolution, while, also trying to get the best possible graphics. I like my native setting of 4k x 2k, 3840 x 2160 but it is almost impossible to see the "controller settings" when I click it to change something, the box is just too small. So I need a compromise. Any help gratefully received.
  22. After realizing my rig just wasn't making the grade,I bought the Evga gtx 1070 TI Card and a 4k tv. Would someone help me find the best settings for the amazing scenery I have watched on YouTube vids.
  23. Just bought the Opentrack head clip but owing to my lack of knowledge have no idea what settings I should be entering in the setup screens. I need a step by step tutorial? Any aid very welcome.:helpsmilie:
  24. Well, there was no help here. If anyone else has this problem, the solution is to go to C: program files ,Eagle dynamics, Alpha, mods, terrain, Normandy and enable it. this allows you to enter your serial and Bobs your uncle. Wish someone had told me this!
  25. After reading some other guys question referring to the same problem, I realised what was wrong! I'm playing in game mode. DUH
