  1. The VA-52 Knightriders skin packs (1987 and 1994) are available for download. The 1987 skin pack includes six line birds. VA-52 ca. 1994: CAG Bird Line Birds
  2. VA-196 Main Battery skins are out. The first VA-196 skin pack represents the squadron ca. 1990 embarked on the USS Independence. The second VA-196 skins are ca. 1995 embarked on the USS Carl Vinson. Also note that I am working on re-texturing the weapons and pods to match the USN/USMC paint schemes. All skin packs will be updated once this is complete. VA-196 ca 1990: Here's the CAG bird: and a line bird: a weathered line bird: Note the custom fuel tank with the spade on the sides. Also custom VA-196 helmets, along with Grafton/Cole on the side of Devil 505 (optional) VA-196 ca. 1995 CAG Bird Line Birds
  3. The first release is the VA-75 Sunday Punchers. Here are some screenshots: VA-75 CAG bird CO's bird with nose art CO's bird airborne Birds on the line Weathered CO bird Weathered CAG bird Weathered Line bird Next up are the VMA(AW)-533 Hawks. A couple of shots of the CO's bird: And some line birds: And weathered... The CO bird Finally, the pilots are in woodland or desert flightsuits with the camo helmet covers popular with Marine aviators.
  4. With the release of the master templates for the Viggen, I have released skin packs for the Viggen with US Navy and Marine Corps markings. The skin packs represent A-6 squadrons from the 1980s-1990s, with A-6 BuNos (serial numbers) and MODEXes (side numbers) from historical record. The tactical paint scheme based on the MIL-STD-2161A(AS) pattern for the F-4 Phantom, which has a fuselage shape similar to the AJS-37 Viggen. The skin packs include six to eight skins, usually with one hi-color "CAG bird" as well as low color line birds. Each skin has a "normal" version and a weathered version. Weathered skins have a bleached effect as if the aircraft were heavily exposed to the sun for months on end. Normal skins include pilots with green flightsuits, while weathered skins include pilots with desert flightsuits. All links to the skins can be found here. Screenshots to follow
  5. Some pics of the new deluxe party pad in Belfalas: Heading up the pathway to the two front yards on either side. Rohirrim banners adorn the way because...my character is Rohirrim. You can also see the stairs heading up to the backyard (to the right of the Lorien statue). A closer view of the backyard, with the Eorl replica and the Pellenor memorial pyre (great at night). A view from the top of the steps toward the Bay of Belfalas A look at the inside. This is the second story, with an identical room on the other side of the stairs and a symmetrical layout below (with one exception) And the exception to symmetry: the back door opens up to an enclosed courtyard with two rooms on either side. This is perfect for the party! The Moria keg is here, just out of the frame. Also note the pup, Faroth. You can pick him up as a companion in the Wastes. Let's get the band back together and throw a party!
  6. What happened is that the MFDs became the first controller in windows, which is the only controller that TAW recognizes. I'm not sure why the CTD happened after you unplugged the MFDs, but we have seen the MFD issue before. Since you have a Warthog (which itself is two HID controllers, not counting rudder), I recommend using my TARGET profile. The only thing you won't get is your USB rudder pedals, for which you'll have to use the slider axis instead.
  7. Try unplugging your MFDs and see if this fixes the problem.
  8. lipy, Shot in the dark here, but did you recently add a HID controller, or is something other than your joystick the first controller listed in Windows? To bring up your controllers, type "joy.cpl" to find the application.
  9. That's the ideal configuration for a modern system, so I can't identify anything that we can do with TAW to fix the issue. Hopefully you get the issue fixed, as it does more likely appear to be driver related.
  10. Looking at the Steam community (Typhoon is available on Steam), I couldn't find much on modern compatibility. Most interesting thing I found is from Starg (one of the developers): http://steamcommunity.com/app/283350/discussions/0/558754899450487899/ This is about configuring options, not Windows compatibilty, but it may be a start. Edit: and perhaps this: http://steamcommunity.com/app/283350/discussions/0/496881136928281125/
  11. Mustsafa, If you're running TAW 2.30 (or any version 2.21 or later), then Polak's objects are not enabled by default. If you do have the "Objects - Maximum Draw Distance" mod enabled, then as DKD says, this could be the issue. I have not really tested TAW in Windows 10, so I can't comment further. For troubleshooting, it also helps if you tell us which TAW exe you're running (e.g. Glide, D3D 1024, 16 or 32 bit, etc.) and Glide wrapper+settings if applicable. These details can be found on the TAW Configuration menu.
  12. Normandy and the WW2 Asset Pack are available for pre-order for an estimated April/May release.
  13. Version 1.68 is out. 1.68 adds basic VR capability (mouse buttons to POV hat), enables optional use of the Warthog afterburner detent, and fixes some bugs (including the gear transition bug in the AJS-37 that could crash the profile).
  14. How many of you know that the US Navy and Marine Corps used to fly the IAI Kfir (designated the F-21)? Both services used it as an adversary aircraft from 1987-1989, at which time it was replaced by the F-5. The IAI Kfir was based on the Mirage V airframe. We don't have a flyable Mirage V, but we do have a Mirage 2000! This is a USMC adversary from VMFT-401 in its original IAF Kfir colors as leased. DCS File Repository
  15. Some shots of the upcoming VMFA-251 Thunderbolts release. I did these Su-33 skins for a virtual squadron, and will be releasing a public version once I convert the design to the Su-27 as well. Skins are 200 series for the USS Theodore Roosevelt and 400 series for the USS Enterprise (both Carrier Air Wing One). Screen shots are for the CAG/CO birds, but the skin pack will include line birds as well.
