Is there a download in one file for all the latest versions?  Sometimes it's quite hard to tell what is new.  Don't want to miss anything!

Just wanted to say this has been a lifesaver for me.  Im a new player coming from a civilian flight sim background.  Since the F16 manual is unavailable yours was the only way to learn the aircraft along with the training missions.  Ive read the whole thing once and have re read sections many times.  I still haven't made it to AG mode but I'm sure with your manuals I'll be fine.  So thanks very much!

You do realise the F-16 ED manual (updated last in December) is available in the usual place, i.e. the docs folder of the module?

No I didn't considering I'm a brand new player.  Why are you inserting yourself into something that you have Nothing to do with.  The manual isn't in a place thats accessible to new players.  Its not under the tab on the main site with the rest of them.  Chucks was easy to find and effective.  Do you work for ED?  This is kind of a messed up way of introducing yourself if you do.

Are you serious? I’m pointing out to you where the official manual is for the F-16, as you stated that it was unavailable!

That is where all the official manuals are stored. 

I hoped it would help you. 

Oh well...

It sure is available to new players.

The original manual is included in your installation: Drive:\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Mods\aircraft\F-16C\Doc\DCS F-16C Early Access Guide EN.pdf

 

PS: But the ones Chuck made are an easier read...👍

I think by not ‘accessible’, he means that the location is not obvious to new players, which is true. 
I honestly wonder how many users are not even aware of modules’ docs folder and it’s contents. It would be useful if ED somehow linked to it.

We have plans to make all manuals linkable on the icons on the main menu, its not ready yet but hopefully not to long to wait. 

 

For now the manuals can be found in the mod folder of the dcs root install for each aircraft 

 

example DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\A-10C_2\Doc

 

or on our website https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/downloads/documentation/viper_flight_manual_en/

@BIGNEWYAn even better solution would be to make these pdfs available in-game while you are flying... kneeboard-style. Ssomething like what ED developed for the P-51 Mustang when presing ESC.

 

The official manuals are great. I still open up the Mi-8 manual from time to time.

@BIGNEWYAvailable in game : in VR as well?

 

Hi Chuck

First and foremost I really want to thank you so much for all your guides, they are amazing!!!

That has been the only way I start learning a new module!!!

 

I found a (very small) mistake in the hornet guide..

On the HUD description page (32), you mark the bank angle tick marks as 0-5-10-30-45 degrees but it is rather 0-5-15-30-45 if I am not mistaken?

 

😉

Thanks again!!

In DCS I fly jets with thousands of pounds of thrust...

In real life I fly a humble Cessna Hawx XP II with 210 HP :D

Updated the Mirage RWS logic with RAZBAM's latest changes.

 

Thanks a lot for keeping these wonderful documents updated.

 

May I ask if do you have plans to create a Guide for the A-4E Community Mod? This is probably the most popular non-official aircraft in DCS and it is a really nice experience, particularly for new players that have tried the Su-25T but have not yet purchased a study level Module. Its version 2.0 is currently on the latest stages of development and a final release should be near.

 

Best regards,

 

Eduardo

...  I believe that Heclak and Wheelyjoe already created their own pdf guides, which are good. Wouldn't it be a bit like re-inventing the wheel?

 

Yes, but both of those documents were written for version 1.4 and thus miss information on the use of the UHF Radio, the AAR capability, the Cp-741 Bombing Computer, the AFCS yaw damper, the differential braking. There are still things that are in development, like a better simulation of the fuel system and adding Air-Air capability to the TACAN so that we can find those tanker aircrafts 🙂 .. but there is enough new items already to make a 2.0 Guide a really useful thing indeed 🙂

Hi folks,


I've been neglecting the Hornet for a few months now, but since I had a little bit of time during February I decided to pick up the slack and bring it up to snuff. I believe more features are planned to be released with the incoming DCS 2.7 version, but I think I'll wait a bit before including them. 

 

See first post for link.

 

*** 


Changelog (4/03/2021):

 

  • Re-arranged radar section
  • Added GMT radar mode (with relevant Maverick tutorial)
  • Added SEA radar mode (with relevant Harpoon tutorial)
  • Added MGRS Grid
  • Added new JHMCS section
  • Added AZ/EL page functionalities
  • Added Auto IFF
  • Added ECM tutorial
  • Added TXSG (Transmit-Designate) option
  • Corrected Waypoint coordinate entry format
  • Fixed multiple typos and errors

 

*** 

 

The page count went from 540 to 620+ pages... but I know it will eventually keep growing as Eagle Dynamics eventually finishes the F/A-18. If you guys still have any suggestions, recommendations or corrections, please let me know.

Good grief! At this rate, you'll reach 1000 pages. Impressive piece of work. Thanks again, Chuck.
