  1. DCS World TARGET profile for Cougar and Warthog with MFDs

    2.02 is up. It updates the Harrier to allow fast slewing when holding S3.
  2. DCS World TARGET profile for Cougar and Warthog with MFDs

    I've seen this with later versions of windows defender. Since the file was released today it doesn't have a history, and it's not signed either. The antivirus is likely doing a heuristic filter based on that criteria (or lack thereof). Along with myself, the guy who wrote the updater contained in the installer is an INFOSEC guy, so we're more diligent than most in terms of filtering malware on our systems (or even exposing ourselves in the first place). If Defender identifies a particular virus or virus-like activity, please let me know (can't be too careful), but I'm betting that it's entirely a "trust issue."
  3. EF2000 Reloaded

    Excellent question, K. The primary purpose of the GUI is to create a user.conf file for DosBox, so if you create your own conf you don't need the GUI, though it will mean that you need to update the conf file any time you change your multiplayer settings (i.e. client/host or changing IPs). From the TAW Wiki, here's what you need in the conf file: [sdl] fullscreen=false fulldouble=false output=opengl [dosbox] memsize=48 scaler=none [pci] voodoo=opengl [mixer] rate=22050 [sblaster] oplrate=22050 [speaker] pcrate=22050 tandyrate=22050 [joystick] joysticktype=ch timed=false swap34=true buttonwrap=false [ipx] ipx=true You can also set your resolution by putting the following entries into [sdl]: [sdl] windowresolution=1920x1080 fullresolution=1920x1080 Finally, put any launcher-specific stuff in [autoexec]. for example, I like to run the CD music in the background so I load a bin/cue of the EF2000 v2 CD. Then mount your desired EF2000 folder to C and DosBox should take you to the command prompt. [autoexec] imgmount d H:\DiD\EF2000\EF2000_V20.cue -t iso -fs iso mount c "h:\DiD\EF2000\EF2000_3DFX" I'm not sure if TrackIR_Enabler.exe is compatible with Linux (or if you can install the VS12 runtime files in the !ADP\Runtime folder), but if you can use that and have TrackIR it makes EF2000 a totally new experience!

    2.0 is finally here! Changes are abundant and really can't be summarized. Oh, and there's a Harrier profile now! See the original post for details.
  5. F-22 Total Air War 2.30 (Final) Released

    You got me there. I was knee-deep in my Master's thesis at the time and totally forgot about it. I'm dropping him a line now.
  6. It's not so much a weed-out program as a "learn your place, follow orders, and suck it up and we'll give you more privileges when you complete your rite of passage" program. That's been part of the military tradition forever. It's not so much to treat the junior guys like garbage, but rather because 1) the job needs to be done, which means that 2) somebody has to do it, and 3) the more senior guys have already done it so it's the junior guys' turn. The net effect is when he's done with his mess cranking duties, he'll actually be grateful to be working in the ordinance shop! I was the first lieutenant in my squadron, so I had all the junior guys who fit that bill. I used to send them to their shops to learn their rate as a reward for a good job. It sounds kind of sick and twisted (you did so well, so go do more work), but the troops are grateful and it's a win-win.
  7. Unofficial DCS: World Week report

    should be this:
  8. DCS World TARGET profile for Cougar and Warthog with MFDs

    The 1.72a patch is available. The patch fixes some Warthog assignment bugs with the M-2000C and updates the audio routine to directly use the EXE instead of a batch file. The patch can be downloaded from here.
  9. DCS World TARGET profile for Cougar and Warthog with MFDs

    Version 1.72 is released. 1.72 adds a dedicated Su-33 profile in conjunction with the PFM/Standalone module release.
  10. DCS World TARGET profile for Cougar and Warthog with MFDs

    Version 1.71 is released. This build brings the Mi-8 up to the latest command structure, applies the new Mi-8 throttle routines to the Ka-50 (Warthog only), and improves the M-2000C and AJS-37 Viggen.
  11. DCS World weekly fly-in

    Effective immediately, or weekday fly-in has been moved back to Wednesdays at 8pm EST. See the OP for details.
  12. The Black Veal Squadron flies again

    Nice. I didn't know that about Holsteins either. I just wish Gateway computers was still around. They used to ship their PCs in boxes with a Holstein pattern, and they could sponsor us if they were still around.
  13. The Black Veal Squadron flies again

    Some action shots: Here you can see the wraparound pattern on the classic Holstein skin. The center pylon and fuel tank matches the black wraparound. And the Bazadaize pattern...
  14. The Black Veal Squadron flies again

    The AJS-37 Viggen is now available in the classic Holstein colors, this time with a wraparound pattern. H/T Joey45 for the camo pattern. By request, I broke from the bold and colorful "tactics be damned" theme and created two tactical schemes. Both schemes are 3-tone non-wraparound. Here's Krusty's ride in the longhorn scheme: And the Bazadaize scheme
