  1. "Refunds" are DCS store credit only. 7 to 10 working days. Steam purchased are not refundable if you have more than 2 hours logged. I would advise against asking for a refund also. https://forum.dcs.world/topic/348848-razbam-situation-what-is-the-status/?do=findComment&comment=5459449
  2. Rhiannon Giddens is a true polymath. I started following her when she was part of the Americana / Roots band Carolina Chocolate Drops. In July 2020, Giddens was named Artistic Director of the cross-cultural music organization Silkroad founded by Yo Yo Ma. She has a program on PBS, "My Music with Rhiannon Giddens"... well worth a watch. She is focused on bringing world cultural folk / roots music together in a fresh melding of cultures. Note the Romani / Eastern European Jewish interlude in this stellar rendition of "Saint James Infirmary". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvuINJTMG8g
  3. I was wondering if anyone else might know that
  4. I finally got this working and it's a gamechanger IMHO. You can watch a Youtube tutorial while in game (I watch the pertinent part while in Active Pause which allows me to click whichever switches). Pause the vid and close the browser then fly that part of the mission. Hit Active Pause again and re-open the browser to continue or re-wind and go over it again. Here's the thread that I had in Bug Reports: https://forum.dcs.world/topic/350838-virtual-browser/ And here's the page from the Manual. Note the part about selecting "Full" in the HB UI Domain Access in the game Specials tab for the F-4E.
  5. New startup for electric powered aircraft...
  6. "Oh Power greater than me, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." Doesn't mean that I'm not mightily concerned...
  7. I was always super nervous (and super careful) when working around hot seats in the L-39. Especially terrifying were the canopy ejection rods which seemed to be targeting my scrotum (there are two each side in the cockpit / canopy rails) as I swung a leg into the cockpit.
  8. Anyone who was in the Los Angeles area in the 60s would be familiar with this guy's late night used car commercials. His name, Cal Worthington. "Go see Cal, go see Cal, go see Cal"
  9. Ho, Ho, Ho m2-res_640p.mp4
  10. @Flyboy, this is what I was talking about using the Jester short, long and double presses. It's more like Petrovitch in the Hind. Currently I only use the Jester wheel for ground ops and pre engagement (but I'm still in early stage struggling). Just starting ground attack and I'm still floundering...
  11. See this: https://forum.dcs.world/topic/349469-no-bug-cockpit-brightness-issue-in-vr/?do=findComment&comment=5441351
  12. The gear's not retracting... m2-res_360p.mp4
  13. Gave 'er one last flight...
  14. I'm still wading through learning the Rhino and am hoping that those with more success / experience with it would be so kind as to list the essential buttons that need to be mapped to HOTAS and what their particular function is. I have the basics but am struggling with radar, weapons and nav/comm.
