DCS: Fw 190 A-8 Horrido! Campaign


Snaggle

Recommended Posts

I have been eyeing a few campaigns including this one.  I haven't pulled the trigger because it says on the DCS store page that the DCS stable version is required for this game.  It would also seem that all the old campaigns on the site state that the stable version is required and newer campaigns open beta.   

Are you running the stable or open beta version of DCS for this campaign?

I started the campaign but had issues with triggers at the sub base.  Really need to revisit all my SP campaigns, not like I don't have time right now, lol!

I did too.  I restarted and still no joy.  So I did some investigating with controls while in flight.

At some point the radio menu \ no longer works however the key for push to talk call radio radio menu does which is Right_Alt+\.  I was able to do all the in game radio triggers after that.

I just finished it.  I will not spoil anything but I will say I enjoyed learning the A8 better.

I ran into no bugs however the AI will do some dumb things like pile into each other on the taxi way. Which will force you to restart.

I took off once then heard 3 ejecting looked back to see a fire ball on the field.  Circled back to see 3 190's  at an intersection not moving.  My guess the one on the main taxi way was Falke 1-4 and the two stopped on either side were Ford 1-1 and Ford 1-2. Either way when stuff like that happens you might as well restart the mission will not advance.

I did die once, collided with a Mustang in a flat scissors.🙄

This mission also frustrated me.  I cheated and sent my flight home then followed them. 

At some point during the campaign I realized the briefings are true heading not magnetic.  I have no idea about ATC.

I have since then been using old school dead reckoning on the F10 map. Left click and drag for distance and heading which will include true and magnetic.

 The other Reflected Campaigns seem to use magnetic but I still use the map for reassurance.

One question and one comment. 

The graphics of your recordings look really good.  I'm under the impression you are doing these videos using VR and that you are using the Reverb2.  Are these being recorded through the VR headset or the mirror monitor image? I'm curious because I'm using the Valve Index, holding out for the Index2 but the image looks really good.

Any mission finished over friendly territory will be 100%.  Any mission finished over enemy territory will be 50%. You are then given the option to fly it again or skip it.

For example re flying until 100%

Mission 10 50%

Mission 10 50%

Mission 10 50%

Mission 10 !00%

Mission 11 100%

if skipped it would be

Mission 10 50%

Mission 11 100%

That explains it, felt bad smoking the engine, really dumb on my part just glad I survived and able to get a couple kills and 100% again...

Thanks

Yes sir Reverb2 and I'm recording using OBS from the monitor image, at 1920x1080 at 30fps (OBS some times de-syncs if I record at a high res). I then use my processing software (VideoPad) to upscale to 2K to keep file size reasonable.
