2 Dumb Questions

Recommended Posts

so I just bought a X-55 Rhino stick and i forgot to ask the most important question! After setting up keys and such, how do you use it. I am not an idiot i mean with all the switches and screens to interact with, do you put the stick on your lap then use the mouse for certain things? I know this sounds dumb I just wanted to know how people played. Also I downloaded a mod for the Su that changes the cockpit to English, but I cannot figure out how to install it, can someone give me a quick guide?:book:

Most mods I've used support JSGME , which will manage your mods and install them for you.


I installed JSGME, changed its shortcut to start in <my DCSWorld folder>, then in my DCSWorld folder, created a folder called _MODS, and put all my mods as subfolders inside _MODS, so I have:


 +-  DCS World
      +-  _MODS
           +-- Some Mod
           +-- Another Mod


Then just run JSGME & enable the mods you want.


NB: This only works for mods that are designed to be used by JSGME. Check the mod you have to see if there's a README file.

There is a readme file in the download for install instructions.

Remember to try and model your stick and throttle buttons to what plane you are setting up for. A HOTAS setup, button-wise, will simplify your workload throughout you flights. I model my CH controls according to the setup in the manual for both A-10C and F-15C. I'm typing this from my phone and would send you the manuals if I could. Hoping somebody will give a link before I can get back to the thread.


Remember, no question is a dumb question;)
