What, you too? Hey Neal, he didn't have enough fancy as it was yet? Never hear the end of it now. :shifty:

51 springs to mind, or 31 but I'm sure it's 51, you didn't post it but told me in game.

Badges, we don't need no stinking badges. :D But it's nice all the same.

Arclight 07-28-2011 03:45 PM

Er, control issues... can't fix it while running the server and in the time I've spent trying to fix it I haven't actually fixed it yet, sooo... guess we're off. :-?

Herr-Berbunch 07-28-2011 04:42 PM


Nevermind, always next week :DL

Arclight 07-28-2011 06:11 PM

Myeah or the weekend or something.

You know those rotary things on the throttle? Aren't mapped to anything, hell, not even supposed to be presented as axis by the software, but somehow those things move the stick. Simply centering those doesn't work, rather wonky.

Took me a bit to figure out why it was moving all over the place. :doh:

Arclight 08-03-2011 03:04 PM

Ka-50 coming up shortly.

Herr-Berbunch 08-03-2011 03:15 PM

Be there as soon as I can, will be a while yet. :cry:

Space reserved for screenshots. :D

Hmm, dodgey wiring!

A bow wave? From a helo?

I hope the others get those responsible for this.

Ah, they did. Thanks guys. You saved the enemy a lot of pain if I'd have got there in time on foot.

Arclight 08-03-2011 07:34 PM

Pwetty colors!

That's all I got...

Arclight 08-04-2011 03:16 PM

A-10C is up.

Fixed my controls. Forgot to change time of day and default load-out , again.

You just don't truly appreciate that titanium bathtub untill it saves your balls from being blown off.

The canopy jettison lever works thanks to the latest patch :O:

Retarded. :03:

My turn now as Arc goes back for more explosive stuff.

I'll say. :shifty:

Can't hit a bloody thing with those. Think I'll just set them up as slicks from now on.

Herr-Berbunch 08-05-2011 07:06 AM

My initial configuration was with GBU-31/38 JDAMs but just got hung stores so jettisoned and used cannon. That and cluster bombs FTW :yeah:

And Mavericks when I can be bothered. :-?

Arclight 08-05-2011 07:12 AM

Aye you get hung store if you make a mistake in delivery. Not that hard to clear though, provided you're reasonably familiar with the systems. (ie. orbit on autopilot and alt-tab to the manual. :lol: )

Herr-Berbunch 08-05-2011 07:21 AM

I have guides printed out for delivering most of the weapons, ILS, TACAN, etc., but not for clearing hung stores.

In case you're wondering why I'm still crap if I've got the guides to hand - I'm impatient and lazy and think I can just pick and choose the bits to read... ends up with hungs stores, apparantly. :hmmm:

Autopilot - haven't even seen which panel it's located on yet. :D So that's how you fly straight and level so often.

Arclight 08-05-2011 07:50 AM

Indeed. :yep:

It's also how I manage my targeting: fly to a point some 10 miles from the target area, bank and engage altitude-hold. Plane keeps a level bank while you tinker with the TGP, finding and presumably marking targets.

There's a control, "HOTAS left throttle button" to engage/disengage the AP. Additionally:


PATH: holds whatever attitude you set. Handy during climbs and descents.

ALT/HDG: Holds altitude and heading. Straight and level.

ALT: Holds altitude and bank. Bank the aircraft and engage to enter hands-off orbit, leaving you free to tinker with whatever needs tinkering with.

The button is a duplicate of the throttle button (other way around, technically).

Changing the switch setting with the AP engaged does not take effect untill you disengage and then re-engage the AP. Say you're orbiting after engaging 'alt' and you set it to 'alt/hdg'; plane will continue to orbit. Push the button once to turn it off and again to turn it back on and it should transition to straight and level.

Actually, don't think 'alt/hdg' engages unless the nose is within ~5deg of level, not sure if bank affects it like that as well. :hmmm:

*right, hung store:

1- Reload station from INV.

2- From STAT page, power off and then power off the FAIL station in red.

3- When the station green, go to DTS page and reload ALL.
Could clear that up a bit with a vid or some screenies if desired.

Herr-Berbunch 08-05-2011 07:54 AM

Thanks for that, always learning! :up:
