    DCS World TARGET profile for Cougar and Warthog with MFDs

    Version 2.13 is now available. This is the last version that will be compatible with both 2.5.0 and 1.5.8. From here, 2.13 will be available as a legacy install for 1.5.8 users, and CTS 2.20 will begin support for DCS 2.5.2 and later. And yes, CTS 2.20 will include a Hornet profile. It will be a basic one to begin with (just something to map the HOTAS and MFDs) with features to follow. Change log: Fixed Keyboard/DirectX Push-to-Talk hot-selection Added high contrast MFD inserts for Mi-8 and MiG-15 Fixed VAICOM support for FC3 aircraft AV-8B: Added Jammer knob assignments to keyboard commands (requires AV-8B Controller LUA Improvements mod to be enabled) Fixed /I/O assignment for S1 with Warthog M-2000C: Mapped Decoy Program Selection to S3+H4L/R. Moved Barometric Altimeter to S3+LCON or LCON Long Fixed issue with Vent Selection Switch not working

    DCS World TARGET profile for Cougar and Warthog with MFDs

    Hi desmo, and sorry for the long delay. The current version works fine with 2.5, as there are no major updates to the controller files from 1.5.8 to 2.5.0. Additionally, the next version (2.10) will have integrated VAICOM Pro support! I'm slammed at work, so I won't have anything to show until late April.

    DCS World weekly fly-in

    The vox server has changed from TS3 to Discord. The reason for the switch: later versions of TS3 have caused issues for controller emulator users (like TARGET users) with PTT binding and ghost controllers. Additionally, Discord allows for asynchronous comms (like chat) and integrates with smartphones to allow "pick-up flight" coordination for times other than scheduled fly-ins. See the OP for details.

    AVG thinks NVG Tool is a virus

    It's not useless at all. It simply acts like a cheat program, except instead of cheating it allows you to see the MFDs using NVGs. It's this behavior, however legitimate, that trips the antivirus. The option to disable it is for people who would rather exercise extreme caution and not run anything the antivirus flags. However, having the antivirus bypass the file in its scans will allow you the functionality as intended.

    AVG thinks NVG Tool is a virus

    False positives for NVG Tool are a known issue because NVG Tool acts like a virus. It looks for a value in a register, intercepts it, and replaces it with another to allow you to see MFDs with NVGs enabled. NVG Tool was also built with a game cheat engine, so some antiviruses mark it as suspicious because of the libraries it uses. What the other guys said about bypassing NVG Tool is correct. However, if you don't want to deal with it at all you have another option: in the TAW Launcher, go to the Configuration menu, then at the bottom uncheck the box that says "Launch NVG Tool with Menu." This will prevent NVG Tool from automatically being launched, and therefore should prevent the CTDs you've experienced.

    F-22 Total Air War 2.30 (Final) Released

    RaptorLead74, As a software developer myself, I'll say that you're better off licensing existing technology like P3D or X-Plane than trying to tweak 20 year old code that was hex edited to do certain things. Most of the changes in TAW 2.x were graphics and datafiles, but the physics are hard-coded and the engine is still primarily based on Glide, and the former DID folks I was in touch with couldn't get the source code. You may also want to contact Eagle Dynamics; they have a commercial version of DCS for professional end-users. P3D and X-plane have architecture that allows you to insert the aircraft and terrain you desire, and even DCS has LUA hooks that allow for customization.

    EF2000 Reloaded

    That would be awesome! There are 2 ways to do this: 1) post some detailed instructions (preferably including links to the patches themselves, but without the abandonware links) to this article on the TAW Wiki (adding instructions for Windows 10 at the end of the article), or 2) post the detailed instructions here and I can put them on the TAW Wiki myself (giving you a byline, of course). Either way, that TAW Wiki article is linked on the help menu of the EF2000 Launcher, so your instructions would benefit all Reloaded users (and not just people who visit Combatsim).

    F-22 Total Air War 2.30 (Final) Released

    If you're interested in doing any modding, I have uploaded what I know to the TAW Wiki. You'll find plenty in the section on modding, and you can always ask for additional information in these forums. If you want to create some campaigns as well, I'll be happy to add them (giving you full credit, of course). Regarding the order of battle databases, I have attempted to change what certain countries have to make different sets of campaigns, but I could never get it to work. If you can figure that out, though, I have put the ability to link campaign sets with custom databases into the front end GUI. Oh, and @ACMDogfight1997, I did get permission from MarkG to upload his files. Now I just need to find them...

    On the launcher, click on the 3DFX icon on the lower left, and you'll be taken to the Graphics and Applications Configuration (i.e. Setup) screen. Then click on the Back up and Restore Pilots icon on the lower left, and it will open a program that will backup your pilots to a zipfile (and restore them later). Just make sure you save the zipfile outside of your TAW folder tree so any deletion of TAW folders doesn't inadvertently delete your backups.

    F-22 Total Air War 2.30 (Final) Released

    At this point, there's only so much we can do without source code. We can modify databases (most are ASCII text) and use hex-editing to update models, but the limitations mean that barring a major breakthrough, the gameplay has evolved about as far as it can go. With the exception of new campaigns (which really aren't that hard to do), there isn't much more to add at this point.

    2.02 is up. It updates the Harrier to allow fast slewing when holding S3.
