  1. A few questions about the F-5s

    Thanks I guess the FAB-4852 is a give away...unfortunately I have it in the wrong folder.
  2. A few questions about the F-5s

    Sorry I meant 44% larger cockpit canopy.
  3. A few questions about the F-5s

    Usually down to money and customer need / requirements...for example an F-15C with Thrust vectoring PW-232s could have been but in reality there was no unlimited budget for such things. So the F-20 cockpit was 44% larger...could a retrofit have been done cheaply?........the fact nobody did it is more likely down to nobody needing it or was willing to pay for those changes..they may have had to pay for flight testing etc. You can put some nice avionics in an F-5E...........look at Chiles upgraded F-5E Tiger III. The avionics in the F-20 were cutting edge for their time (Mid 1980s)....but the fact that it didn't become a standard was probably again down to lack of requirement from customers or e.g. those that had the money procured more advanced fighters instead.
  4. Graphics Card Price Spike.

    Didn't see this coming...thought the prices might go up if Desktops became less popular. I can wait.............the 780 is still pretty good for what I use it for.
  5. It is part of the NVIDIA Geforce Experience App/program ..do you have that? https://www.nvidia.co.uk/geforce/geforce-experience/shadowplay/
  6. DCS World 2.5 Open Beta Update Last week we launched the Open Beta version of DCS World 2.5, and your initial reports have been very helpful for us to reach a high-quality release version. The team is working very hard to bring the DCS World 2.5 release version to you as soon as possible. We have been reading all your feedback and striving to address all valid issues. Less than a week after the 2.5 OB release, we released a hot fix which you can read about on the forum in special thread. Earlier than initially planned, we also released the Open Beta of DCS World of 2.5 to Steam, which you can read about in the Steam news. DCS World 2.5 has been a significant advancement for DCS World and we are heartened by all the kind words of appreciation, thank you! If you missed it earlier, here you can find the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta launch trailer video. DCS World Helicopter Sale One of the biggest benefits of DCS World 2.5 is that it's a much better environment to fly helicopters. The higher-resolution terrain elevation mesh, higher resolution terrain and object textures, much improved trees, huge forests, and trees that now have collision / block line of sight for weapons, all create a much more engaging and beautiful environment to fly in. Starting today and lasting until 19 February at 0900 GMT, we are offering 30% off on all helicopters for DCS World! Find these great deals on our E-Shop. DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Update Progress on the Hornet is moving along quickly with much of the work focused on the air-to-air radar modes, defensive systems, INS waypoint navigation, and flight dynamics / Flight Control Computer. Our next Hornet academic video will instruct on Hornet TACAN and ADF navigation. Pre-purchase now and save $20: DCS E-Shop. New Rapier SAM Model In addition to adding new units to DCS World, we are also busy updating some of the older units. Much of the priority is based on updating units that are operated by Iran... an important aspect of the new Persian Gulf map that is in late-development. Here are a few work-in-progress of this unit that will also be playable via Combined Arms. Sincerely, The Eagle Dynamics Team
  7. This thread perhaps? https://combatace.com/forums/topic/91614-upgrade-for-odscalling-modders-new-and-old/?tab=comments#comment-740708
  8. Hi there Just need to check how far you are getting ...typically for major SF2 mods you create a copy of a game exe.........then run that which creates essentially a separate empty game ....with an empty set of mod folders (under saved Games by default). Then you copy and paste all the bits from the downloaded mod into the correct location in the new set of folders. PS are you the same Kirk66 who used to fly F-4 Phantoms for the USAF?
  9. Emailing a (former) driver

    Was he in the same time as you Hen? Are you after a business opportunity?

  11. I don't but their official videos are generally done by someone with the handle Glowing AMRAAM
  12. After a lot of practise fighting in it wasnt so bad especially against the AI.................but hitting anything with the iron cross was a nightmare.
  13. Nice video but please note, Only the Open Beta World 2.5 is currently out.............the main version (DCS World 1.5) will not be going to 2.5 until further testing is done. Although the title says "free to play"...that only refers to the baseline install with free Su-25T and TF-51.
