An Easter Egg in the F14 DCS allows the RIO to play Asteroids. :D

Improve your BFM, commentary by a former F/A-18C pilot.

I had an interesting debate on the F14 thread on the DCS forum. It seems some people cant dogfight now that it doesnt vibrate like an electric toothbrush. Go figure. :)

Thanks for that, have you ever seen this one, it might come in quite useful for the Falcon when it arrives next week.

 

 

The book is pretty interesting too.

Yeah, I read the booklet by the man with the stache. I also installed the latest iteration of BMS, but have not yet come around to actually play it, so much to configure and map. It is even less user-friendly than DCS and alt-tabbing freezes the game. You are supposed to consult the many manuals on a separate system or iPad or even to print it.

Currently, I am back to playing with the Viggen, making bombing runs on the Cold War server.

I keep meaning to check out that Cold War Server, I always keep missing it for some reason. The into the inferno one is pretty good. I actually took off from the carrier, bagged 2 Mig21's (AI ones, but still nice) and then land back on the carrier in my F14. Felt pretty awesome. :)

Alpenwolf's Cold War server often does not show up in the normal server list. Like most of the active DCS MP servers, it requires the beta version of the game instead of 'stable release'. I converted my 'stable release' to beta using SkateZilla's  utility, which proved to be quite simple and resulted in a stable game that now updates itself to the latest beta version.

 

When the Cold War server does not show up, you can connect to it by using its IP: https://forums.eagle...ad.php?t=211361

On week nights there are mostly 10-20 people playing and in the weekends a bit more.

 

However, if you are dreaming of using the F-14B to swat some MiG-21s on the Cold War server, I am afraid this will remain a reverie, as the F-14B is not allowed. Available aircraft are the AJS-37, F-5E, AV-8B+, F-86, A-10A, MiG-15bis, MiG-19, MiG-21bis, baseline Su-25 and some of the warbirds. There are no AI aircraft (except AWACS) and some players, especially Eastern European MiG-21bis jockeys, are quite good.

Thanks, ill try that. I fly the Mig21 also, but maybe they will change their minds when the A model Tomcat comes out.
