DCS World news - February 2015

27 Feb 2015
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

The developers of DCSW posted some interesting news about where they stand in developing new add ons as well as DCSW v2/Edge:

 

- DCS World 2 and Edge seem to be nearing a public release, in alpha release format.

 

- DCS: Nevada Test and Training Map is almost finished, it is hard to believe it, but it seems to be true.

 

- DCS: P-47D Thunderbolt (and not DCS: Spitfire IX) will be released first, the 'when' is not so soon apparently.

 

- DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Air to Ground radar is progressing well

 

hopefully after so much waiting we will indeed see some tangible progress and that will makes us all happy.

DCS F/A-18C news

02 Mar 2015
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

In an effort to revert some expectations on the progress of their next module - the developers of DCS posted some new info and screenshots of the F-18 cockpit a few days ago , it is good to learn that it is indeed not a mythical module ;)

 

No, it’s not a myth. Work on the Hornet continues with great progress on the air-to-surface radar. The real beam mapping mode is just about done, and once complete, the team will start work on the various sub-modes. This has been a critical new technology that had to be developed from scratch for this project.
Included in this newsletter is the current status of the 6 DOF cockpit. It is still very much a work-in-progress but project development is now accelerating.

Installing P3D v2.5

18 Feb 2015
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

I rather have a root canal done than re-installing P3D or FSX as it is a laborious, time consuming rather frustrating experience. It is fraught with dangers specially for those that want it back being 'just the way I am used to and like it to be'.

 

A few days ago P3D v2.5 was released without a patch install - that means a full new install. At first I hesitated, but since Lockheed Martin is the type of developer that delivers, I decided to do it. Curiosity got the better of me.

 

The results were excellent and the process was smooth , I wrote a short guide on how to do it, you can read it here.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition update released

10 Jan 2015
Posted by Tom_Weiss In: LockOnFiles Portal Articles

We are pleased to announce that we released a new update this afternoon (Monday 12th January 2015). Full update notes can be found here (http://steamcommunit...54302093637525/)

 

This update resolves several issues reported to us by the community and will be automatically applied to your software via the Steam platform. If the update does not start automatically please restart your Steam client.

 

Below is the full list of changes and fixes made in this update:

 

• Networking: Resolved - potential crash bug when decoding Steam host tag data.
• Error Reporting: Resolved - error message if the software failed to load the language.dll so that it shows the name of the actual dll it is trying to load.
• Learning Centre: Resolved - when selecting a mission from the Learning Centre, you would be told that the mission script failed to load and would be disabled.
• Learning Centre: Changed - the Learning Centre still referenced a GameSpy logo - now replaced with Steam logo.
• Graphics: Improved vertex and index buffer handling defaults and a few other things to give up to 10% framerate improvement (as long as vsync is not enabled/forced).
• Graphics: Change - Enable trilinear mipmap filtering by default.
• Graphics: Resolved - If the Special Effects setting was set to HIGH, some special effects like external lights, landing/water effects would not work.
• Graphics: Changed default value for max per-frame texture uploads to decrease time for high quality terrain textures to appear.
• Settings: Resolved - HIGHMEMFIX was enabled by default but could very rarely be disabled at load time.
• For new installs, we now provide default versions of dll.xml and exe.xml files to improve compatibility with existing add-ons.

 

Please note: Existing owners of FSX:SE will not get the dll.xml and exe.xml files automatically. We did not want to change them because we know that a lot of players have already modified them. If you would like the new versions of these files all you have to do is verify your files through Steam.

 

We are continuing to monitor your feedback on FSX: Steam Edition and would like to thank the community for taking the time to report these and other issues. We know that we have not fixed all of the reported issues, but we continue to work to improve the product in the coming weeks.
