    If Flaming Cliffs 3 supposedly re-works the physics for missiles, how does that affect the rest of the game? Do people with FC3 fire different (better or worse) missiles from everybody else, or is the missile upgrade a universal DCS World thing?

    also while i'm at it and we're all asking questions; if you play in arcade mode or whatever, what are the buttons to get rid of the "simple mode" HUD data? for example when you go third person your two MFCDs are displayed; aircraft and missile tags are dispalyed, etc.

    I want to let other people play with my amazing setup and I want them to get the "feel" of the game but I don't want them to have to learn a bunch of shit and I don't want them to see all of this extra annoying crap when they just want to see cool visuals
    no answers to this? i'd like to have one by tomorrow/saturday if possible. i can't believe i can't find anything about this on the ED forums or elsewhere

    I don't know if this will remove that stuff, but 2 x Ctrl+Y (I believe) removes the bar at the bottom of the screen in third person, so it might do the same for other HUD elements.

    Anyone know or have a good profile for an X52 pro. I recently reinstalled and used to have a good setup but thanks to all their updates n shit I have lost it and I don't think for the life of me I can be arsed to go through the whole setting up of it again (for A10C)

    I've been looking around but they're all a few years old and I'm not sure if old setups will be compatible with any new changes that's been made for A10, also I have track IR so I wouldn't need any head movement controls in the profile.

    Well nevermind, found my old profile and it still seems to work. After a year or so without playing I managed to fire the old bird up, take off and land, like riding a bike!

    Not DCS related but what other Combat Flight Sim thread is there? Been playing an Israeli campaign in BMS against Syria and Egypt, given the current real life state of things. I'm not sure if Iran becomes present in it or not. I know the USA joins in with aircraft carriers eventually if they're needed, though

    I believe we should play again soon. Would also be great if we could get some missions with other aircraft than just the A-10C.

    these mission packs have A-10C/Ka-50/P-51D/CA/FC compatibility, unfortunately they havnt been updated in a while so some things have been broken by recent updates, iirc JTAC training doesnt work and it probably doesnt work during the regular missions either, i think the fix for that is just to change the radio JTAC operates on in the mission files.

    I did a few training missions in A-10C the other night after digging out my X52 and wrapping it up in tape. Some of the rotaries on the throttle and the rudder on the stick are acting up as well. It reminded me how woefully under-equipped I feel whenever I play these things. Work completely spoiled me when it comes to playing flight sims at home.

    I haven't played since, but I have a lot of learning to do before I can competently fly the A-10. It'll probably take me a week or so of playing to iron out a profile for the X52 like I had back when I played LOMAC and Flaming Cliffs.

    I should look around for a new X-52. I loved that stick. My ex-girlfriend's dog chewed through my cable (Which i hastily, and terribly patched back up with electric tape and twisting of wires) so now it can be kind of hit or miss on recognizing that it's got a Joystick connected to the USB port.
    I need to get some DCS and Il-2 back into my system.

    Seems like a straightforward thing to have in a SIMULATOR of planes where you need to turn oxygen on.

    Edited:

    I actually downloaded a mission pack that we can play too. No longer shall we play the same mission over and over again!

    Does anyone in here have a dcs a-10c profile for an Extreme 3d Pro they can share?
    I am not familiar enough with the controls to set it up myself and it doesn't bind anything by default

    Download and install the Black Shark module, then when you launch a KA-50 mission it'll ask you for your key.

    Before you say we knew these were being developed, it just confirms what projects ED are working on and not third parties.

    Learn to read, it says eagle dynamics and our partners, just from a quick glance at the list mig21bis and the hawk are third party

    Also where the fuck is Nevada terrain they should at least release edge a pi so third party's can create terrain on the new engine

    Do the training missions several times. They might be boring, but they are very helpful!

    Yup, I am using a cheap joystick I found laying around. I just mav'd my first target today with the help of some youtube tutorials. I'm loving the game so far.

    Prepare for the suck. The learning curve is very steep since there's so much to cover, and you'll have to push your multitasking skills to the limit.

    But if you stick to it and end up getting the hang of the A10, it's incredibly satisfying.

    Edited:

    A tip? the gun is by far the most important weapon you have, and it's capable of destroying anything on the ground with <150 shots. Using it effectively should be second nature. Practice a lot with it.

    Should have started learning to play with the Su-25T, the learning curve isn't as steep.
