Heatblur: AJS-37 Viggen

dcs

#971

I was going to do this as a video but felt it was too long (~12min) so here’s some pictures instead:

All done from an unsaved mission in the editor, so straight up single player; open beta install.

Waypoint B1, M2, B3, and LS for airfield.

Plan cycled to 23 in the kneeboard (I think).

Cartridge inserted.

Select REF LOLA, computer to IN, code 9099, load cartridge, wait til load, then cycle to out and normal computer mode. Master mode to NAV, waypoint should show as LS on the field.

Once in air, all good:

Forgive any errors in all this, since I rely heavily on my kneeboard for Viggen operation, I’m fudging a lot of the stuff to “I know this works.”


#972

OK…got it. Thanks a million. :slightly_smiling_face:

I’ve read through it and think I may see where I went wrong. I’ll go through it word-by-word, ste-by-step tomorrow. I don’t need to tell this crowd that, when dealing with computers, even the smallest error means it won’t work. If somebody could build an intuitive computer that knows what you are trying to do, despite your mistakes, they’d make a mint.


#973

That’s what autocorrect was supposed to be, and we all know how well that has turned out. :joy:


#974

Turkey! (Gosh darn autocorrect). Correction; Truly!


#975

This is where I am messing up. I bring up the kneeboard but…how does one select program 23?

Anyway, punching in the geocodes using LOLA isn’t that hard.


#976

LAlt + LCtrl + C I think cycles plans backwards, you might have to check your keybinds as it’s nestled in there somewhere.


#977

Ahhhh…so that’s what they meant regarding the key bindings…I shall give it another try…the Mig-15 shall have to wait another day.

EDIT: It works! Only one problem. It worked all the other times I tried it too. And it saved all of those F10 generated missions. And they were essentially all the same. So…I’ve got to figure out where all that data is stored and clean it out. :roll_eyes:

But at last it works. :slightly_smiling_face:

EDIT 2: Not only does it work, but if you do an ELINT collection it auto-generates a strike mission against the radar! Sierra Hotel (or its Swedish translation) :grin:

That would be Sigurd Helge.
Yes, we have our own phonetic alphabet… :slight_smile:


#979

You guys don’t want to hear the Italian one… :roll_eyes:


#980

Well, now we do…!
I didn’t think Italians had a pure phonetic alphabet. Surely it must be gesture assisted? :wink:


#981

:stuck_out_tongue: Har har har!

EDIT: You’ve already seen them apparently! :smiley:


#982

Archer…on the importance of using a phonetic alphabet.
