  1. Hi Pat, Just had a coop participants persona registered as KIA despite a safe bailout in within friendly territory; he followed his pilots progression under the silk till he met terra firma and sat there looking mildly dejected thankful at least to still be among the living. Sufficed to say we were both a bit surprised when PWCG rendered him dead! Is there any way I can Lazarus the fellow back into existence?
  2. Well you're on the right track, the plugging is the penultimate hurdle, keep at it and you'll get it. What's the ultimate hurdle? Staying in!
  3. That's often the way... the best way I find is to make many tiny pulses instead of one large - and I mean sub-millimetric (not kidding!). And because the sooner you recognise the need to make a correction the smaller that correction will need to be, you should be constantly making a series of these tiny pulses - on the run up to the basket my right hand is moving like I'm speed handwriting a microscopic letter! Another thing to try is to break down your stick corrections into pitch or roll - I make one plane of motion correction at a time; I'm either making a pitch co
  4. Hi Pat, Getting an error when trying to submit AAR on v.11.6.1. Files attached. This is the second such as the last attempt resulted in the same failure to progress at AAR submission. Any chance we can review and see how we can progress? Many thanks, Fen ErrorReport.zip User.zip PWCGErrorLog.txt
  5. Our last event was Sunday the 13th December and all was fine then; not tested under latest game update.
  6. Hi Pat. Alas we're still on v 11.6.1 so cannot confirm the issue. Regards, Fen
  7. It's certainly on our roadmap in the DangerDogz Pat. In the nebulous stages I wasn't sure how many of Dogz would have been interested in flying the campaign; in the past many have eschewed the longer take-off-fly to action-fly home-land format because of length and the potential frustration of getting taken out of the evenings entertainment prematurely by bad luck, one wrong decision or a piece of ineptness on the part of another player. Thus, I initially was expecting to struggle to get a even squadrons worth of participants and as I wanted to foster the teamwork ethic and
  8. Hey Pat, Can I suggest we have a review of the awards metric? We currently have a coop player with a persona rank of Major in a Bodenplatte P-38 squadron, with 80 (!) ground kills over 20 missions yet because he has only 4 air kills has nothing more to show than a Bronze Star... Yet, another Coop player, again, persona rank of Major in the same Bodenplatte campaign but in an A-20 bomber squadron, after only 4 missions and with only 13 ground kills and no air victories has been given the DFC. Is it me or does this seem a bit lop-sided?
  9. As I recall, 64 Sqn, 130 Sqn, 234 Sqn and 402 Sqn were still equipped with LF.Vb/c for Overlord period. However these units were all assigned to ADGB, not 2nd TAF and whilst they flew offensive patrols over the beach-head in their Vs, within a month they had converted to IXs and XIVs.
  10. Clipped wings on Mk.IXs the following rules apply: 1. F.IX or LF.IX makes no odds; this denotes the variant of Merlin fitted and has absolutely no regard to clipped or otherwise state of the wings. Period. End of discussion. 2. LF.IXe or LF.XIVe makes no odds; this denotes the armament fitted and has absolutely no regard to clipped or otherwise state of the wings. Period. End of discussion. 3. I have never, ever, ever seen a HISTORICAL picture of any D-Day striped Mk.IX with clipped wings - and I've seen a lot of pictures of invasion striped Spitfires. Ther
  11. Ah well. Understood, thanks Pat. Is there a chance that relocating the Group to a new airbase could resolve this issue?
  12. Hi Pat, I had one player get bored of flying P-38s in our Bodenplatte campaign and requestrg a transfer to an A-20 Bomber group, the 410th based out of Eindhoven. He's the squadron CO but the only 'breather', the rest of the squadron are AI. Whenever he spawns in leading the squadron in cold start, only wingman 1 even starts the engine and none of them at all follow him out to the runway and progress on their mission. They all just stay on the ground at their spawn point for the entire duration. He's tried waiting 5 minutes for them to start engines but to no avail; a
  13. I personally find the F-14 the best module in DCS for many reasons; I'm an a2a guy primarily and who doesn't like launching a quartet of Phoenixes at an incoming wing of enemy aircraft? But I love that if I get the itch I can pickle some LGBs - or if I'm feeling particularly daring, run in with unguided ordnance - with the added bonus that it's a darn sight quicker than the Warthog (though that is one beautiful plane) plus I get to land on the carrier with all the frustrations and rewards that brings. Then there's TALD, a neat little decoy that can make the difference between your
