DCS 2.5.4 Open Beta

Post  Speed on Fri Dec 14, 2018 1:31 pm

A new beta release will be pushed out next week so I'll continue to track changes via this thread.

Consider the 2.5.3 thread closed.

For the 2.5.4 Open Beta update next week, ED plans to add F/A-18C Hornet laser-guided bombs, Bullseye and BRA information, further improvements to the AGM-65F infrared-guided Maverick to include better axis slew control, and more great stuff that you can read about on their website.

DCS 2.5.4.25729 Open Beta Update 20/12/18

Post  Speed on Thu Dec 20, 2018 6:44 pm

News flash,

They slipped an update in on us today that I just caught. It's too large to download on short notice and since the server has already updated, we can't fly without it. So, our Thursday night/Friday morning flight is cancelled. Updates of interest to us include ATC control of aircraft and an update to the F-86 English flight manual.

Devil is reporting that some folks are not able to launch DCS after the update is complete, while others have no issues at all. If for any reason after downloading the latest update you can not start DCS, then follow this link to the ED Forums where Devil has posted his work around. We'll track this issue going forward into the weekend and hopefully everyone will be able to fly.

ED Forums

UPDATE: I completed my download in about 3.5 hours and had no issues when starting DCS. I tried the server and while it still starts with that funky map page (like the replay sequence) it loaded just fine and seemed stable enough.

DCS 2.5.4.25729

WWII Update:
Introduced an improved of Bf 109, Fw 190, P-51D and Spitfire IX cockpits and external models.
Added another version of the P-51D Mustang: P-51D-25-NA. This version has different IFF and radio equipment.

Support of new campaign - P-51D The Blue Nosed Bastards of Bodney Campaign by Reflected Simulations.

Note: Regarding the VEAO Hawk, the developer has ceased supporting their product. We will though continue to make available the 2.5.3 updater for those that wish to fly this product.

Re: DCS 2.5.4 Open Beta

Post  |450|Devil on Fri Dec 21, 2018 1:36 am

Further to the information posted by Speed above, I had the following issues with the update:

1. Game would not launch - there is a link in Speed's post to the work around I found on the ED forum
2. Lost my RAAF liveries - fix is to copy and paste the Liveries folder from DCS.Openbetabackup to the new DCS.Openbeta you created fixing the non launch issue
3. Had to reinstate all my video, audio, special etc settings - found the easiest way was to write down what my settings were in the Release version and duplicate this in the new OpenBeta version
4. One good thing - the black cockpit is now back in the RAAF 77 Sqn aircraft and 120 tanks can be selected in the Korea 1952 server.


I have kept my Openbetabackup but moved it to one of my storage drives as I am sure there will be something else amiss in the new version.

From the ED forum posts it would appear that only some are having the issues I encountered. Hopefully I am the only one of our group so affected.

Post  Speed on Sun Dec 23, 2018 9:28 am

Not sure if you guys picked up on this latest upgrade to open beta but you might want to check it out, especially if you fly with VR (StiC/Wolvie/Dev).

Captoglove technology can be enabled under Options by opening the Special tab and clicking the box for Captoglove at the top of the list of modules.

Video demo is at this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cV8DfhQit3o

And a write up can be accessed via this link https://www.vrfocus.com/2018/06/hands-on-captoglove-goes-elemental-with-new-prototype/

It was quite choppy wasn't it. I was hoping to see him flipping switches and such, but it's a start.

Not sure that I could fly with the glove - I need the physical feel of my joystick and especially the back pressure it gives when I pitch and roll.

DCS 2.5.4.26479 Open Beta Update 22 January 2019

Post  Speed on Fri Jan 25, 2019 10:00 am

I've just read through the bug reports for open beta version .26479 released 22/01/19 and there are a lot of complaints concerning crashes with this version. As Squiz pointed out elsewhere, we flew on the Korea! 1952 server last night and the performance was bad. Now I say that with the caveat that I think my problems were mostly on my end of things in that we had some bad winter weather over the past few days that might interfere with my internet performance. Having said that, there are known problems with this release.

The ED moderator is advising us not to use any mod files (ergo, Rob's mod might not be a good idea at this particular time) and he is also advising not to over-clock your CPU or to use modified shaders. Seems that the ED team know that this version of open beta is not performing well, so we'll hope for the best this Saturday/Sunday and expect a better update next week.

As for the failure of the 120 gal tanks to load, I tried to load tanks using the pilon menu, but 120 tanks were missing, I then selected 120s from the drop-down menu and activated the load sequence, but no tanks were loaded, although I got the typical plane rocking and voice confirmation that loading was complete.

The mission for this week calls for 120 gal tanks and M-117 bombs, so if nothing loads, we may be forced to fly shorter duration CAP missions.

PS

I also just found a separate post from one of the user community who has performed a test of a multi-player server where he compares the incidence of stutter when using static weather settings, versus the elimination of stutter when using the dynamic weather settings. Seems counter-intuitive but his tests demonstrate that fact quite convincingly. So I've posted a message to SeaQuark on the ED Forums with a link to that post so that he might evaluate that measure for his own server. Hopefully this might be a simple fix.

However, I can report that the server performed much better last night. We suffered a few rubber bands and micro freezes but nothing like the mess from Saturday/Sunday last.

DCS 2.5.4 Open Beta Friday Update

Post  Speed on Tue Feb 26, 2019 5:56 pm

From Eagle Dynamics:

Dear pilots,

With the DCS: MiG-19P Farmer by RAZBAM Simulations to be released this Friday, 1 March 2019, we will be shifting our Open Beta release to Friday this week instead of the usual Wednesday. A benefit of this is that we’ll now have time to also release an eagerly awaited new Eagle Dynamics feature! Let the speculation run wild!

Sincerely,
The Eagle Dynamics Team

Here's a link to a video on the MiG-19p Farmer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H69qkjtX4og

Very cool aircraft and would be fun to fly against (big twin afterburner beast!)
