Fix for the 1.5.5 Released version export problem
The magic trick to make Helios, UniversRadio and DCS Bios work again had been found!
Go to your Saved Games/DCS/Scripts directory. Open your export.lua with Notepad++ and remove or comment the line: os.setlocale("ISO-8559-1", "numeric")
Save the file and everything is back to normal. For Tacview, a fix is available with the beta: http://www.tacview.net/download/beta/en/
Next DCS version will be 1.5.5, not 2.5
Some new stuff for the UH-1H, Ka50 and Mi-8, mostly cosmetic for MP. An interesting F10 view new tool.
Official English Manual out soon for the Belsimtek Mi-8?
Well, an extremely rare statement from Belsimtek on the ED forum is suggesting we actually might get something in 2-3 weeks. Let's all remember this module was released on September 4th 2013!
Some eye candy from the next DCS chopper module: BO-105
This nice little chopper with its fully rigid titanium rotor, 6 HOTS, AA missile and rockets is likely to be an amazing addition to the DCS rotarywings world, even it is kinda redundant with the Gazelle, I can't wait to start flying her.
Polychop also posted a pretty cruel teaser.
Historical weapon mod for Mi-8
This mod from Avimimus and 1.JaVA_Platypus adds some historically accurate weapons for the Mi-8 that are not available in the standard module:
- UV-16 57mm rocket pod
- UV-32 57mm rocket pod (32 rockets per pod!)
- S-24 240mm rockets (yeah, 240mm!)
If you are using ovGME, this mod is available directly in the BSD repository and authorized in BSD multiplayer missions.
