Long time forum lurker and fanboy of many of you…all the way back to the AOL days. I’ve been in and out of DCS for years, and joined some of you (I believe Holopoint?) years ago to ground pound with the Hog. I even have a A-10 hard copy manual (that a third monitor sat on for years).
With a career change, I work 12 hour shifts now and only work 7 out of 14 days. With wife (teacher) and my two high schoolers back to ‘in person’ school…I’ve got a lot of free time on my hands with winter coming. Apache has my fire re-lit. I’ve been trying to set DCS up, and relearn the A-10, which years ago I could bang out a cold start by memory. I’ve got the TM warthog, CH pedals, and TrackIR with the IR clip working.
But the controls. I can’t even get the Hog cold started any more. Throttle used to bump over the gate to start, now nothing. I’m stuck somewhere, even the start cheat won’t work after being mapped. Every time I sit down, watch a set up video, and try to map things, I get frustrated and go back to murdering bad guys in Breakpoint. It’s a vicious circle.
I’ve spent time with Chucks Guides, surfed youtube vids, but I’m lost. Please assist with some direction!!!
