DCS: Spitfire LF Mk.IX Update

Work continues on the Spitfire LF Mk.IX at a rapid pace! This week we integrated the long-awaited RAF pilot to the cockpit.

Primary development on the flight dynamics is nearing completion and we believe you will be very happy with the results. We think it is our best work yet. Our efforts are now moving to the Hispano-Suiza HS.404 20 mm-caliber automatic cannons. These will include realistic ballistics for all main ammunition types used during WWII.

DCS World 2.0.2 Update

Today we will release the next update to DCS World 2.0, version 2.0.2. This will include all the new changes from DCS World 1.5.3 and some new fixes you can review here.[/quote]


Oo, shiny new options screen today too.

Now to try that Hawk again…

Took a Huey for a quick free flight, worked ok.

Chose the Hawk Day Free Flight over Nevada and it locks up. I thought it might be the new textures defaulting to high, but it sort of locks up on Medium too. When the pause menu is brought up it seems ok, so not sure what is going on. Disappointing though.

EDIT: Same lock up in a blank mission too. Hmm odd.

Looks like a snafu, but it looks like others are reporting similar things so I’d bet a patch is inbound:


If you haven’t already updated to 2.0.2 for the Hawk then my advice would be to wait a bit till this gets sorted out.

EDIT2 : A fix is on the way, cool.

ED has found an issue with the starforce protection and are currently testing a new build.

Whoa! :smiley:

It’s official. We wait:

"The 2.0.2 version has a high CPU usage problem. We are working on a fix. Please do not update to this version a while.

Sorry for the inconvenience."

Such is the life of an alpha.

Yeah. I shrugged, loaded up 1.5.3 and practised the M2000C and the F-15 there, to be ready for the Fly-in. :slight_smile:

Looks like 2.0.2 is back on the menu.

Corrected DCS is published already.

…and the Hawk works. The cockpit looks nice with the new textures too. It stalls nicely, so the EFM is there for sure.

One odd thing is that VEAO don’t allow HOTAS button assignments to left/right brakes (only keyboard presses or pedal axis) and as I haven’t got pedals at work then it makes taxiing fun - no more nose wheel steering I think.

Edit: Reported it and it’s going to be fixed. All hail the internet! :slight_smile:

I’m sad to hear you and other fellow X-55 owners cannot use differential brakes. So sad in fact I made a handful of profiles that should allow for SOME differential braking. You can find them here

hope it’s useful :slight_smile:

EDIT: Link to new location

Very nice - thanks!

I think Ellis indicated it would be fixed, but what you did with the bands is actually nicer. Cool. :a6:


I need a new job. Both @BeachAV8R and @fearlessfrog get to play DCS at work while I get to manage Powerpoint and Project. :anguished:


A job like?

One that let’s you have a Tornado all for you?( with a retired Navigator- Lt.Col that flies the back seat?)

Or a Typhoon would suit you better?

Not only you would have pedals with differential brakes but the rest of the cockpit doesn’t look half bad.

Sorry, I simply had to do that.


bonus advantage of not needing a head tracking device or VR glasses either.

Not to mention not having to redo your keybinds after an update!



Yup. :wink:
