Re: release or openbeta

i am actually not convinced it is the most stable of the two. ED has actually pushed non-working features that were discovered in open beta into the release version. i think it varies on the feature as to how far behind it is. some discussions about it: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=20694...

Re: Top Gun 2 Trailer 2020 Release

Yes. My neighbor is the Aircraft Handler Officer (i.e. guy in charge of the ouija board) on that carrier, the Roosevelt (he is out at sea on work-ups right now). They shot those scenes in a couple sessions in May and June.

release or openbeta

Should we go release or openbeta? openbeta give us the latest features after they have been through alpha. most of the time things work. i think it is rare that something gets borked so badly you cannot use an aircraft of feature. release is stable, supposedly. i am not sure if it is more stable tha...

dedicated server

I have tested the dedicated server and it seems to be working properly. note i hosted stable release missions even though the dedicated server is termed open beta. i think a lot of folks think it can only host open beta missions/versions. I intend to get a virtual server running and host sessions th...

Re: I missed you MAN!!!!!

DA,
How is mapping controls in SC nowadays. When I tried it (well over a year ago) it was all jacked up and confusing. Is it simple like DCS or Falcon or IL2, or do they still feel a need to have it complicated?

Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology app

I recently added a CPU that uses this technology (not all Intel CPU's do, so do not worry if you do not have this issue) and Win10 installed the utility automatically (via windows update). It is a useful utility as it can assign demanding apps to the core(s) that boost the highest under load (yes, s...

Re: I missed you MAN!!!!!

many of us already have one or more ships for SC. it is just not worth putting time into it yet. yes, there are carrier operations in DCS. it still needs work, but in general it is working fairly well. a few of us recently bought Elite Dangerous if we want to give space sims a try as well - it was o...

Message Notifications

I have noted that the new version of the forum software does not notify you when you receive a private message. You need to go into your profile and look at Board Preferences and then Notifications and check if you want an email sent for the events listed. I do know that the new software does not se...

Re: forum software upgraded

Well, to get the dark theme back I need to have some time to put into recreating it. I might be able to find a canned one that is suitable. I just need time; the girls take up most of it.

server outages

Over the last couple of days I have been fighting disk issues. So far it seems no critical data has been lost and everything should be functional again. The teamspeak server was lost, and I rebuilt it - so it will look a bit different.
