Yea, it was just a short note on the forums. My bet is: release F-18C apa is "coming soon".

Hi Pointman -nice to see you found us. Yeah, the old forums stopped working and we had to quickly nail together this one.

I am surprised you're having trouble with weapons -do you mean you can't use anything A2A?

Hi Archer,
Yes, basically since 1.55 or 1.56, ED implemented a change in a .dll when furing  and  guns.  I have to say I have been running DCS in a laptop with integrated card. Need to save up for a decent PC...
Other than that, i upgraded to 2.5 and enjoying the new scenery.

(More information)

The error is with igd10iumd64.dll .  This has been a known issue with integrated video cards.

Oohh right -don't think we've seen that with anyone here yet. From what I have seen the A2A stuff appears to work OK in general. Plenty ED needs to fix with memory leaks etc since 2.5 release, mind...

Update out today -appears to be OB only as yet. Quite a bit there for the Gazelle -including a mingun...

The first version of the video memory manager is presented, which will purge the video memory when the video memory budget allocated by Windows is reached. The resources that were not used in the last 10 seconds are first to be purged.

New OFFLINE mode is now implemented. User can turn on OFFLINE mode that allows the game to be used without internet identification and without a time limit. Note: user must turn off OFFLINE mode on the same PC. OFFLINE mode cannot be turned off from another PC even with the same user's login.

Quick question; is anyone running the openbeta or are we mostly on the standard 2.5 game? I know SG is still beta for one.

The openbeta has been updated today (11/5/18) and here are the bigger changes listed on ED ; https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=200724

We could consider running the OB if everyone has it and it's worth running if better than the regular 2.5.0?

From what I read on ED there seems a concensus that there is far less lagging with the OB patch?

If so and everyone has it loaded, we could run the OB Sunday.
