  1. DCSFlightpanels for Saitek Pro Flight Panels has been updated. It now has Radio Panel, Multi Panel display and DCS-BIOS support the following DCS modules: A-10C UH-1H MiG-21bis Ka-50 Mi-8MTV2 P-51D Bf 109 K-4 Fw 190 D-9 In addition to DCSFP, users will have to download the latest version of DCS-BIOS to accommodate the added modules. Please refer to the top level post in this thread for a link to the downloads. Thanks, Skeeter
  2. DCSFlightpanels (formerly just Flightpanels) for Saitek Pro Flight Panels has been updated. It now supports the following DCS modules: A-10C UH-1H MiG-21bis Ka-50 Mi-8MTV2 In addition to DCSFP, users will have to download the latest version of DCS-BIOS to accommodate the added modules. Please refer to the top level post in this thread for a link to the downloads. Thanks, Skeeter P.S. -- DCSFlightpanels can be used as a keyboard emulator. It does not require DCS-BIOS in that mode. However, DCS-BIOS is needed for the Radio Panel, some LEDs and the Backlit Information Panel (BIP) to work.

  6. ArturDCS, as he is known on the Eagle Dynamics (ED) forum has written a program--Flightpanels--to allow the following Saitek Pro Flight Panels to interface with DCS World aircraft: Switch Panel Radio Panel Multi Panel Back-lit Information Panel (B.I.P.) Flightpanels will operate in two modes: keyboard emulation and/or DCS-BIOS. In keyboard emulation mode, the Switch Panel and Multi Panel buttons can be programmed to work with any DCS module and with other programs as well. The Radio Panel and B.I.P. will not operate in keyboard emulation mode. In DCS-BIOS mode, all panels mentioned above can be used, but they are limited to the A-10C and UH-1H Huey. As other modules (aircraft) are added to DCS-BIOS, they will be added to Flightpanels as well. When in DCS-BIOS mode, switches and buttons can be configured with keystrokes or DCS-BIOS functions, but the user also has access to other information provided by DCS-BIOS such as radio frequency setting and feedback, altitude and heading feedback and display and so on.

    We need to work on tightening up our formations, but we're getting there!
  9. Wombat returns from Bali ......

    Welcome back Wombat! Looking forward to getting into TAW again. Sincerely, Skeeter
  10. Who knew?! Today is National Aviation Day. I never knew we had one. Sounds like as good a reason as any to celebrate at the O-Club. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Aviation_Day Skeeter
  11. Campaign Scoring in TAW

    Thanks for the replies. When I do this, I make sure to select targets from the current strategy list and usually go after the high value ones. I realize that there is a delay in updating the damage info, but so far I haven't really noticed that I'm affecting the percent damage all that much, if at all. I'll watch the list and percent damage a bit more closely. It did seem like this should be a way to increase the probability of meeting the required damage levels, so I'll continue to use this strategy. Thanks again, Skeeter
  12. Campaign Scoring in TAW

    I've been turning CAP missions into strike missions by choosing a target from the list and going after it once I have passed the CAP waypoint. I'll even rearm and strike the target site again. However, this does not seem to show in the target damage percentages, even after time has passed and I've flown more missions. Is this a waste of time or does this strategy help win a campaign? Thanks, Skeeter
  13. Yep, open bar! I made sure the bar tenders never felt lonely. The wedding was great and Newport News is a very nice area. Thanks. Skeeter
  14. Just FYI--I won't make the Saturday multiplay. In HF's territory (VA) for a wedding. The nerve to interfere with my flying! Skeeter
  15. Skeeter's Pit

    Thanks Fittop, I appreciate that. I think of it as the mid-life crisis I never had. A bit of an extravagance, but why not! Skeeter
