  1. 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.
  2. 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/
  3. 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.
  4. Normandy and the WW2 Asset Pack are available for pre-order for an estimated April/May release.
  5. 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).
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. In a perverse way, that terrain looks like it would be fun to fly 50m supersonic in the Viggen. I'll eventually get the Normandy terrain, but I look forward to its release primarily because that will shift resources to getting DCS 2.5 out the door.
  9. Welcome to Combatsim, SD. We look forward to your updates.
  10. The Atlanta loss could also be summed up into the following comment (twice): "Audible out of a slow developing pass play if the defense shows a house blitz." First play resulted in the sack-fumble, and the second the sack that pushed them out of FG range.
  11. Version 1.67 is released. V1.67 adds the AJS-37 Viggen to the list of selectable profiles. DCS World 1.5.6 (currently OpenBeta) is required to fly the Viggen, but the profile is otherwise fully compatible with DCS World 1.5.5.
  12. Effective immediately, or weekday fly-in has been moved to Tuesdays at 8pm EST. This is to accommodate schedules of our regular flyers as well as increase joint ops with the 75th VFS.
  13. Volume III of the USN Skin Pack has been released. Volume III is a collection of 13 skins for the USN and USMC in adversary markings. Commands include, VFC-12, VFC-13, VMFT-401, and NSAWC (home of TOPGUN). Links can be found in the original post in this thread.. Here are some screenshots: USN NSAWC Air Superiority Blue Splinter pattern based on the F-14 USMC NSAWC Woodland wraparound pattern USMC VMFT-401 pattern based on the colors used when they flew the Kfir Another VMFT-401 bird, this time in a desert wraparound pattern USN VFC-13 Ghost colors VFC-13 Desert colors VFC-13 "Banana" colors in a splinter pattern USMC Air Superiority Blue wraparound pattern A couple of arctic patterns And the Fullback pattern based on the Su-34 (inspired by a paint job done by VFC-12 this year) As always, the detail extends to the pilots themselves
  14. Version 1.66 is released. In addition to the Spitfire, v1.66 fixes a number of bugs, improves the M-2000C based on the latest avionics updates, and improves the FC3 autopilot logic (Warthog only).
  15. Helmet wouldn't know what to do with the treasures if he found them.
