Blackshark on FC2


Recommended Posts

I did yesterday, I went to the 104 sever for FC 2.O and clicked on KA50, then only got a map scene and that was it? must have done something wrong i guess.

Then you had your FC2 MP started - and tried to fly a DCS:BS.

You need to start your DCS:BS MP to fly Ka-50. ;)

That happens if you try to enter a Ka-50 position from the wrong product - in this case most probably Flaming Cliffs 2.

 

I tried it out just today and that is exactly what happens if you're trying to use a flyable not available in the current product.

Example: You start multiplayer for Flaming Cliffs 2 and try to enter a Ka-50 slot. NOT FLYABLE.

You start multiplayer for Black Shark and try to enter a Ka-50 slot, works!

 

Tried it for the 104th server and it works just like this

I think there could be a short info in score sheet like "not available" or "not flyable with DCS/FC2" to prevent future confusions like this.

Well sure, but in my personal opinion it's relatively obvious - if you're not running the Ka-50 app you won't fly it... :P

Yes, there are two products - DCS:BS and FC2.

It should appear obvious that you need to buy BS to be able to fly it - and vica versa.

But I must admit, I've done the same mistake a few times myself - not being too sober of course. *cough*.

Hi all. Made my first attempts this weekend to fly BS on 104th server. Maybe I just couldnt get the help I needed but several times I flew the entire route on my Abris and there wasnt one thing for me to shoot. Everything was already dead. The mission briefing doesnt tell you anything besides going to WP2 and killing the units there. I was supposedly in a flight with 3 ships, none of which appeared on my abris and the only comments anyone made to me was to open mission editor. Course I dont even know the name of the mission. The only time I had a single clue as to what to do is when the server reset and there were instructions for the BS pilots. The only other messages I saw were about killing AWACs. So it looks like either Im clueless and need some help from experienced guys, or I should just stick with SP campaign.

yes, it may well be obvious for some... but some have it in thier head (incorrectly or correctly, I'm not too sure) that it is an online compatibility scenario and hence believe the "two seperate products" are interchangable.

 

ie like entering the playground from either of two gates... the swings and see-saws and roundabouts being available for use regardless of which gate is used..

Make sure to check out the mission brief. It is ALL there. For detailed maps, including exactly where the enemy units are visit http://www.104thphoenix.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=2008

the 1st thing you may want to do on the 104th server is ask what area your side is working...if you come in to the mission late the trgts at your wypts maybe dead already. you can also ck your abris to see where your other sharks are working...hope tht helps...
