  1. Have you previously downloaded the version through the MS marketplace? If so make sure that is deleted completely and only use the development version that can be installed through the installer. It does still have issues, twice it's wiped the flight plan when adding a STAR, it's still useable using the 'Direct to' button.
  2. Nothing really special: i7 7700k, 32mb, 1080, 1x 250gb NvMe 1x 1Tb NVME drive (Sim drive) 2x 1Tb SSD 1x HDD 6Tb
  3. Nothing on the email suggested that you couldn't tell people you were in. Besides i imagine that most of us simmers are very excited to start down the road. If i get punished, so be it, i'll still be super excited when it is eventually released and will still be happy to buy it!
  4. I don't really understand why they would be bothered with people saying that they were in the program. I can understand them not wanting images or glitches posted or even people talking about the builds and of course i will fully respect that.
  5. Mine just arrived, i actually think it might be more around the Internet connection. I have Virgin 500mb unlimited, currently one of the fastest connections in the UK with no limit. I think MS might be wanting to test the streaming tech. I also think it's way more than 100 people.
  6. What is it you are trying to do? Are you trying to start from Cold and Dark? Are you trying to use it in a home cockpit? Are you trying to use the virtual cockpit?
  7. Of course i agree with you both, i just wish there was something to do with my perfectly simulated aircraft. I bought the original KA-50 module from Russia before it was released in the west i have supported DCS since the very beginning, i have every module, yes even the terrible and now abandoned Hawk, i just wish Eagle would focus on implmenting things like better ATC or a Dynamic Campaign (my top priority) leave the Aircraft for the moment to other people; i would even pay for those type of addons just like the additional aircraft modules.
  8. Lord i wish they would finish a module before starting more. I really worry about the future of DCS, it seems the entire business model is predicated on selling more modules as quickly as possibly. I do very much like the sim, but i wish they would focus more on the core engine and improvements to the 'game' aspect. For me, even though (at the core) it's 20+ years old, Falcon 4 is more fun to spend time with. ...sigh...of course i'll buy the module though, some people (i.e. me) just don't learn!
  9. Actually whilst unusual (and somewhat old fashioned), "Aircrafts" is acceptable when talking about multiple types of Aircraft for example combining Helicopters and fixed wing Aircraft. It is of course most likely that the 'OP' is not a native English speaker and wouldn't understand that the 'craft' is considered a collective term in of itself.
  10. Recently got back into DCS, in prep for the F14, once released i'll be bidding fairwell to P3D for a few months i think

    Very Pricy Addons

    The 'fair' price is what people are willing to pay, you don't want to spend £199 on P3D then don't, stop buying it and either the price will drop or they will stop development and end the product. The fact that they offer a reduced price for students (that they don't check in any way) suggests that it might not be LM dictating the price point. Your second point is not born out by the facts, PMDG, FSL etc...were already charging +£100 per aircraft when FSX was the primary flight sim, again coming back to my first point, companies charge what they think the market will take and again nobody forces us to buy the products; as the consumer we can change this simply stop buying products if you think the price is unreasonable. I am curious, do you think that £120 is "obscene" for a single aircraft?

    Droning on...

    I disagree, whilst what you say is almost certainly the case with the Super Injuctions and celebraties (and their varouis infidelities); the press has recently also decided that it should be judge, jury and excecutioner, look at what happened with Cliff Richard and others. These people were by all accounts arrested because they had an interest in remote controlled aircraft, another example of the ongoing UK prosecution of 'Thought Crime'.
  13. It's not a bad selection of liveries. It took me a while to work it out as well. Go into the ACE 757 application and change the button at the top to online. You can then select the engine type and livery you want. By sure to click on save when the livery has downloaded.

    Droning on...

    Yes i agree, shocking but unfortunately predictable behaviour from our tabloid papers. If they are innocent I really hope that he sues the living daylights out of them. This type of guilty until proven innocent or trial by the Press is sadly all to common in the UK now. In any case we can now expect a whole truck load of ill thought out legislation restricting the use/ownership of drones by the general public that will do absolutely nothing about criminal use; whilst simultationously unrestricting what the state can do.

    Train Simming

    I think that from time to time we all get bored of Flight Sim, i like the addons that give structure, but the end result is that they turn an enjoyable experience into another job. When i get bored i take a break, play some Forza or go out with my camera, the desire to sim comes back eventually, even if it takes a few months.
