  2. I have a great computer with a 3070 RTX w/HP Reverb G2.. Internet is Fiber Optic and crazy fast. Here’s my problem and my question. When I play on a massive server like Growling Sidewinder, after I crash or whatever and respawn, it’s super choppy and laggy. So much so the only fix is to completely close out of DCS and restart it. I play in VR. My buddy has the same setup as I do with an Oculus VR. He has the same problem. Is this common? Does anyone else ever experience this? Is there any solution? please help if you can!! Thanks!
  3. Hey guys. So out of the blue, my aircraft rudders hard right on taxi and hard roll in flight. No idea why. not a trim issue. My deadzone on HOTAS is 3 never had any issues. Is it because i had Cat 1 with GBU 10 and 12? Should be cat 3? Any ideas? thanks
  4. I'm a Newbie, please be patient Sorry to bother everyone, I know this is a frequent topic. I have had nothing but problems since I have downloaded this game. Started out with frequent crashes and lagging issues. I updated all of my drivers and did all of my windows updates too. My computer is brand new so I did some trouble shooting with the tech support. He guided me through my bios settings to make sure my system was running optimally. Everything looked good there. He recommended to uninstall and reinstall the game. I did that but ran into several issues there. Thought I had the issues resolved but now i'm getting more frequent crashes and hard black screen crashes also. What's the deal with this game. I feel like the creators of this game need to be more on top of this stuff. Anyway, I would appreciate any help I can get. Please bare with me though because i'm not the most computer savvy person in the world. I know that adding the dcs log info is the first thing asked for. I might need some guidance with that. I know where to find it I just want to make sure i'm sending the right info there. My specs are: Liquid cooled gpu and cpu, gpu RTX 3090, cpu i9 11900k, 64 gigs of ram 3600 mhz, samsung 980 pro ssd Thanks in advance everyone!

  6. Hi y'all! I've tried literally everything I can think of, but when I try to load into a buddies server I CTD without a crash report window. Also I tried loading into my own server and Growling Sidewinders server and had no issues whatsoever. Attached is the crash log, I would really appreciate some feedback ASAP so I can fly on my buddies server. Thanks! dcs.20210423-102142.crash
  7. SOLVED - Issue was the options.lua file it was copied over from 2.5.6 dedicated server , this worked ok with 2.5.6 DCS World dedicated server but caused the DCS World 2.7 dedicated server to crash, many thanks to @USSR_Rik for helping me solve this problem I updated and started up the server, then connected to the server just using a CA game master slot , and did nothing else no other interaction with game at all, then server crashed dcs.log-20210422-164255.zip
  8. Not sure if this is related to the other frequent server crashes (log looks a bit different than others I have seen posted here) dcs.log-20210419-080449.zip
  9. Hi friends, For those of you who fly older missions/campaigns created before DCS 2.7, where there is the need of the US Navy Equipment mod installed.Just wanted to let you all know that after running several tests, this is the mod causing DCS 2.7 to crash and missions/campaigns to fail. It is not compatable with the SuperCarrier either, since SC uses it's own deck crew. One can fly the older campaigns by adding the US Navy Equipment mod in your saved games/tech folder, and then remove all the deck crew and vehicles ,with the mission editor, and save. After that remove the US Navy Equipment mod from its location again. Kind regards, RWC11

  13. OPERATION DESERT KNIFE | FICTIONAL | INFORMATION LETTER SHORT REMINDER: Original Name of this Mission was Operation Desert Storm but it got "rebranded" to Op. Desert Knife __________________________________________________________ Singleplayer - YES Multiplayer - YES COOP - YES Each other - YES Against each other - YES __________________________________________________________ Syria Map - Required Carrier Module - Highly Recommended Tf-51 / Is Free & should be Pre Installed Gray Shark Skin - Recommended 16-32 GB Ram - Recommended Hello and welcome to the information sheet on the mission "Operation Desert Knife" Operation Desert Knife is a dynamic mission that means there are multiple possible endings! You can play Operation Desert Knife alone, in co-op or against each other! There are no limits! The main goal in Operation Desert Knife is to take out the enemy aircraft (AI) and then land! Whoever manages this first, decides the victory for his faction! If one faction wins, the other faction loses! Again, you can fight the AI with a friend and then land. Or you can fight the enemy AI on your own while your friend / enemy has to do the same against you! The first to turn off all targets wins! You can of course do 2v2 1v2 and so on, no limits! The location is on the new Syria map and starts at sunrise! Now you are setup for my first Dynamic Mission and I really hope you will enjoy it! I have also added a Airshow! So you can train with oldschool aircraft like the TF51 or BF109! (please keep in mind that this mission does not try to be realistic at all! Its a 100% Generic Fun Mission, something you just wanna throw on without thinking to much and just testing out the latest stuff of DCS!) OPERATION DESERT KNIFE CONTENT - 2 rival factions, each with 4 selectable airmen - Real radio messages from the political groups: USA & RUSSIA - Different endings possible (Dynamic Mission) - Audio announcements if a team member has died or an enemy player has been eliminated. - Audio announcements if an enemy is sighted inside of your Political area & warning if you are in an enemys Political area. - The latest carriers are available for both factions! - SAM targets available for both factions (A-10II, SU25T - to counter SAM site) - Mission briefing for each Faction! - RAM friendly, despawning of cinematic aircrafts (aircrafts that only spawn to look cool), carrier and assets only spawn when needed (if you spawn inside a f14 the carrier will spawn for example (same for russian carrier and cinematic aircraft) So Assets which are just dont needed wont load! - Many many IF conditions for a balanced game flow - Self-made mission pictures so that you know what your task is! (dont expect picasso art ) - Airshow (Ram friendly, if you spawn inside of an neutral aircraft, everything that is related with the Operation Desert Storm Mission will despawn so you save Ram and can press F2 without seeing any other aircraft rather then yours! REAL ATC AUDIO RECORDINGS For an immersive feeling! Russian and American Voices! Alerts and kill confirmation Voice! Source: YOUTUBE!

  16. BLUF: Thrilled to be back...been jealous reading the forums and watching evolutions of DCS over the past few years. Would appreciate your help, so skip to the Questions section to bypass my melodramatic summary… I love DCS…I could not be happier with the trajectory, and it’s thrilling that study sims are making a comeback. I attribute this largely to IL-2 (including RoF) and DCS....things certainly seemed dead even in the early 2010s. So happy I no longer have to dwell on my first study sim loves: Microprose F-15 SE III, Janes F15, Longbow. However, as with many of you, it’s been a love-hate relationship that has ebbed and flowed over the years…here’s my quick story (please correct if memory provides inaccuracies): My DCS Story: 2009 – started with OG Black Shark CPU: AMD Phenom II 965BE GPU: Single HD5970 Top-of-the-line system; ran well, maybe 45fps, generally had a good time at 720p during real missions 2010 – picked up A-10C and never went back to Black Shark CPU: AMD Phenom II 965BE GPU: Single HD5970 Perf degrading, usually kept over 30fps at 720p...I started to get concerned. Generally enthralled but not much campaign/community content…interest came and went. Sadly, this would be the last year I could play DCS well on my 2 year old system (was top-of-line). Fun note: I have a good friend who’s an AF Hog driver (AETC) and back in 2010 he sat with my HOTAS Warthog, flew the sim, and could not believe it…just now in 2021 he sent me a link to this article: https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/40620/a-10-warthog-pilots-are-using-the-digital-combat-simulator-video-game-to-train-in-vr 2011 – DCS World launched…perf got worse, still only flew the Hawg CPU: AMD Phenom II 965BE, but OC’d it more…didn’t help much (see BLAB) GPU: 2x HD5970s…added another card, didn’t help much (see BLAB) Struggled with maintaining 30fps at 720p BLAB: DCSW does not utilize multiple CPU cores well, nor does it utilize Crossfired GPUs. Super! At least I could play all the other games…so I often did for the next 4 years. :( 2015 – DCS 1.5 launched; DCS 2.0alpha launched CPU: AMD Phenom II 965BE GPU: New GTX 970 helped me take a swipe at 1080p…but just barely Struggled to stay above 20fps at 1080p during heavy action EDGE turned out to be a great long-term bet by ED…yet it did not solve my now very aged CPU/GPU combinations or fix the single-core single-GPU emphasis (as some suspected it may). 2017 to 2021 – sent overseas for 3+ years CPU/GPU: Packed away in my HHG, no sim’ing, no fun… At least once a week….for 3+ years…. I read about DCS’s progress and watched the YouTube/Instagram videos proliferate…could not BELIEVE the announcements around F-16, AH-64D, F-18, F-14…WOW! Mind blown…but all I could do was track things and wait to return back CONUS to give it another go. 2021 – DCS 2.7, I gave up and went gangbuster…didn’t even try to run on my old system CPU: i7-10700K OC’d to 4.85 GPU: RTX 3080 NOTE: I did try using my GTX 970 with the new CPU…and still only managed 30-45fps at 1080p. HAHA! Just proves you need both CPU and GPU to be top-of-the-line to really get any mileage out of DCS. For the first time in 10 years, I can play DCS smoothly again…and for the first time ever I’m at 60+fps on Ultra doing 1440p. IT IS INCREDIBLE….and it only cost me about $2,400! My Beefs with DCS (I love all the same stuff you love, btw…that list is too long): Performance = no question here…it costs a fortune to run DCS well and consistently over time. And I’m praying that my current top-of-the-line system keeps me at playable framerates longer than my last top-of-the-line system (2 years). Reliably merging the Aircraft with the World = missions/campaigns still seem super-buggy and constantly requiring high-LoE updates to maintain functionality as DCS constantly upgrades. It sucks to just be doing the same out-of-box missions from 2010 for A-10C. ED: you guys built these AMAZING high-fidelity aircraft…and this incredible digital world with beautiful clouds, terrain, and units on the ground…but are failing at unifying those 2 aspects together in a reliable and consistent way via community/ED-sponsored campaigns that do not fall apart every few months. [head-on-desk] My Questions to the community: Is ED seriously not supporting Red Flag for NTTR and A-10C II on 2.7? Building NTTR seemed like a questionable gamble for ED (not sure it paid off considering the new theaters, little content for NTTR I see now)…but having worked there before, I LOVED IT. And I adored the Red Flag Campaign…so is ED also falling victim to their own AI-brutality in mission design breaking with upgrades…is it too much of a pain for even ED to update? Should I ask for a refund here? Why does A-10C original even exist? I was quite surprised to see that OG A10 still is a separate module…how confusing and unnecessary. Why? It’s been over a year. All the content should be A-10C II by now… What SP campaigns should I play for A-10C II? Seems like just Enemy Within 3.0 - really? I want Red Flag…but see above. I played Enemy Within back in the day…happy to see there’s a 3.0 supporting A10-C II here. I see Piercing Fury is user-supported now…but it’s failing me on Mission 2 (I saw the fix threads…but don’t have time to screw with this stuff in the waning hours after the kids go to sleep…I just want to fly and blow sh*t up, fixes not working for me). Given the above experience with A10-C II - what do you think of investing in Hornet? What’s the single player campaign story there? I really want to dive into the Hornet once it goes on sale. I’m thinking to buy: Hornet SuperCarrier Persian Gulf Raven One But that’s a lot of money just to potentially be disappointed that I cannot play through campaigns after upgrades, etc. Other recommendations? I bought F-14 from HB…even though I won’t have time to study it. Just bought because I read they did a great job and want to support 3rd party on awesome modules like this. I’m definitely going all-in on AH-64D (same story, support the cause) but again worried about SP Campaign content… Thanks everyone and cheers
  17. OPERATION DESERT STORM | FICTIONAL | INFORMATION LETTER SHORT REMINDER: THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE REAL LIFE OPERATION DESERT STORM! __________________________________________________________ Singleplayer - YES Multiplayer - YES COOP - YES Each other - YES Against each other - YES __________________________________________________________ Syria Map - Required Carrier Module - Highly Recommended Tf-51 / Is Free & should be Pre Installed Gray Shark Skin - Recommended 16-32 GB Ram - Recommended Hello and welcome to the information sheet on the mission "Operation Desert Storm" Operation Desert Storm is a dynamic mission that means there are multiple possible endings! You can play Operation Desert Storm alone, in co-op or against each other! There are no limits! The main goal in Operation Desert Storm is to take out the enemy aircraft (AI) and then land! Whoever manages this first, decides the victory for his faction! If one faction wins, the other faction loses! Again, you can fight the AI with a friend and then land. Or you can fight the enemy AI on your own while your friend / enemy has to do the same against you! The first to turn off all targets wins! You can of course do 2v2 1v2 and so on, no limits! The location is on the new Syria map and starts at sunrise! Now you are setup for my first Dynamic Mission and I really hope you will enjoy it! I have also added a Airshow! So you can train with oldschool aircraft like the TF51 or BF109! (please keep in mind that this mission does not try to be realistic at all! Its a 100% Generic Fun Mission, something you just wanna throw on without thinking to much and just testing out the latest stuff of DCS!) OPERATION DESERT STORM CONTENT - 2 rival factions, each with 4 selectable airmen - Real radio messages from the political groups: USA & RUSSIA - Different endings possible (Dynamic Mission) - Audio announcements if a team member has died or an enemy player has been eliminated. - Audio announcements if an enemy is sighted in the area & warning if you are in an enemy area. - The latest carriers are available for both factions! - SAM targets available for both factions (A-10II, SU25T - to counter SAM site) - Mission briefing for each Faction! - RAM friendly, despawning of cinematic aircrafts, carrier and assets only spawn when needed (if you spawn inside a f14 it will unlock the carrier (same for russian carrier and cinematic aircraft) - Many many IF conditions for a balanced game flow - Self-made mission pictures so that you know what your task is! - Airshow (Ram friendly, if you spawn in a Neutral aircraft everything that is related with the Operation Desert Storm Mission will despawn so you save Ram and can press F2 without seeing other aircraft then yours! REAL ATC AUDIO RECORDINGS For an immersive feeling! Russian and American Voices! Alerts and kill confirmation Voice! SELECTABLE AIRCRAFT RUSSIA: - Su 33 (on Carrier) - Su 33 (on Carrier) - Mig 29 (on Airbase) - Su25T (on Airbase) - Su27 (on Airbase) SELECTABLE AIRCRAFT USA: - F14 B (on Carrier) - F18 (on Carrier) - F16 (on Airbase) - F14 A (on Airbase) - A10II (on Airbase) ------------------------------------------------------------------ SELECTABLE AIRCRAFT NEUTRAL (AIRSHOW): - BF109 (on Airbase) - Mig29 (on Airbase) - Spitfire (on Airbase) - TF 51 (on Airbase) - AV8B (on Airbase) EPIC BATTLEFIELD INTRO SONG Epic Intro for following units - F14 B - F18 Whats planned for future Update: - adding 2 Helicopters with unqiue Tasks for each Faction (Hind + Blackshark - Russia) (Apache + Huey - America) OPERATION DESERT STORM TEASER (we recommend you downloading the Gray Shark Skin for cool looking SU33 AI and Client Aircraft ( https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/de/files/3312850/ ) ENJOY OPERATION DESERT STORM ( https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/de/files/3316674/ ) | REMINDER FOR THE DOWNVOTERS | the Operation name was a mistake, i accept it. So please evaluate the mission and not the name! And for the Haters: If you are not able to read a description then i cant help you! The name is definently not a misleading Title, i wrote down like a 100 times that this mission is Fictional! With best regards BlazeXI
  18. For some odd reason my game crashed then blue screened and then it wouldn't open DCS, this has happened before and I had to do a complete reinstall of windows to then find out it was my config folder and then the same thing happened again today so I had to delete my config folder which is really frustrating and annoying. Has this happened to anyone else before and is there a way to put an end to it?
