IRIS F-16D Comments?

Recommended Posts

Looks interesting. Any comments? RP
Hello Mudhendriver,There is a thread over at Simouthouse that is pretty lengthy discussing the F-16D from Iris. The forum over there is a little more military aircraft inclined than this one, so you might want to check out this thread regarding your inquiry:http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?t=21521Hope this helps! :(

I have it. I've only flown it 2 or 3 times. I have no issues at all so far. The sound transitions nicely when panning around in spot view. Most cockpit switches and systems are detailed. It flight handling seems smooth. For the first time I get an F-16 that is fast but not radical. Acceleration is very smooth and controllable. For me it was worth waiting for. There are a few Active duty Reserves and Air National Guard repaints that come with the plane. Go for it. I am still considering the Aerosoft F-16C and doing some single seat operations as well.

KeithHow's the frame impact? I recall the IRIS F-15E a couple years ago and it beat down most systems at the time. Hoping the Viper D is better in that regard. Thanks!RP

RP,I just did a closed pattern over KFAT using the "Ferry" configuration Center tank and one tank on each wing. I was getting on average 18-20 fps while viewing from outside the aircraft and on the ground at Fresno. I can't complain about that. I had my Firefox with multiple tabs open and minimized at the same time. My desktop is not that hot of a setup.

I actually never tried to use it until you mentioned this. I did a couple of patterns but that was low and slow. I only get nozzle movement and flashes of some heat for a second or two and then goes away. I will go back and read to make sure I'm not forgetting to set something.

Flavio, there are issues with the afterburners. It seems that it happens with a certain NVidia driver. But keeping the drivers current seems to fix any problems.The afterburner effect was made for Acceleration so it may not work in Sp1/Sp2/RTM.It will definitely work with FSX Acceleration.

I grew up in Fresno and stayed until 1994. And lived on Dakota Ave not too far from the airport. I was a little taken back that Iris identifies the Ca ANG as March ARB. While they do go to March, they come home and park at Fresno Yosemite. I can remember when the F-106s went away, then F-4Ds were onboard for a few years and then the F-16s. It was an interesting place in the 70's and 80's because a lot of stuff would fly through, F-111, F-104, A-4, E-3 AWACS, all sorts of stuff. Of course I wanted to fly every single one of them.On the afterburner issue, I did something with my NVidia settings the other day. I might change that back and see if I can re-light the fire!

The Fresno guys do stay at March. They keep a 24hr Detachment squadron there, although their garrison is at KFAT.

Flavio, there is a SP2 patch installer that comes with it. in the IRIS Pro Series Folder inside the FSX root directory.Sorry, I forgot to add that :( hehe

Yep, Dougie, i saw that. But i think this update address something else, not the afterburner issue. I installed that, but the issue continues. Visiting IRIS Forum, there is a highlight topic that says that a patch to the SP2 users is in development. Let

Thanks for the info. Concerning the afterburner issue. I was too involved with the cockpit during my first couple of trials that I didn't even bother to look to see whether or not I was getting the re-heat. If you had the LAGO F-16 it put out smoke as well. But I am enjoying this jet. I get a kick out of the level of detail to the switches and knobs. Every time I flip that Oxygen Regulator supply on, I remember a situation we had when I went through JSUPT at Vance AFB years back. One of my buds wouldn't go back to O2 during our chamber. He became a physiological case. He was too high to make sense of what was going on, laughing and ignoring the signs of hypoxia and rules to put your mask back on as soon as you notice symptoms or changes in vision and what not. Then he started getting belligerent with the Chamber safety NCO. After a lot of yelling and arguing and animation of what appeared like trying to reach for ejection seat handles "hand grips - raise triggers - squeeze" according to the T-37B Dash-1, the NCOs were able to get things under control.So I'm glad to see that the switches have been animated in this aircraft. So the next time I am strapped into my computer chair and start getting light-headed...

Brilliant that you like it.About the testing. we do have Sp1/Sp2 users in the team but the F-16 was made using the Acceleration SDK. It would have create a lot of extra work to have to make fixes and then release. There are a lot of files which have to be dealt with. But in time, after the Christen eagle comes out then the next aircraft...which you'll be hearing about after the CE will be dealt with. It's time off for David soon, so work comes to a haitus, expcept support, which continues as per norm.So the patch might be a little be down the line but I'm sure it'll get there.Sorry if Sp1/2 users feel neglected. Well be sure to add more in-depth Sp1/2 testing onto our list of priorities in the future! Dougie

So if I am using Acceleration should I still be getting the no afterburner issue since I have an Nvidia card?

No, you should be fine. Only we SP1/SP2 poor users that can
