Introducing the Virtual Hawgsmoke competition!
Hawgsmoke is a real world competition event where A-10 pilots can demonstrate their skills on the range, share experiences, learn, teach, chat, and party together.
Virtual Hawgsmoke is an online version of the event utilizing DCS: A-10C. Virtual pilots will meet, show their skills on the virtual range of DCS, share experiences, learn, teach, chat... and then face the real challenge. It will not be so easy to party together when separated by thousands of miles...
We wish all vHawgsmoke participants to have a good time, good discussions, good skills to teach each other, good virtual bombs to drop and a good luck with the last item - the party. It should be a very fun and challenging event indeed!
Tacview is a telemetry visualization software by a third party developer. It acquires raw data from the simulator and renders it symbolically in 3D, including terrain of the operational theatre.
Tacview presents tactical data in a convenient and easy to manipulate environment, making it a great tool to help understand and analyze even complex battle action. We highly recommend Tacview to increase your effectiveness on the virtual battlefield.
The new 1.2 version is available on the developer’s website:

Get some of the latest inside information on DCS development in the SimHQ interview with DCS Producer Matt Wagner here:
For a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to backward compatibility, multiplayer in DCS World requires that all installed modules have serial numbers connected to a single website account. Customers who have made purchases using more than one account currently encounter an error during multiplayer login: "Invalid Serial Number".
We have already added a warning in the e-shop section, but have now also created a special page where customers are able to view the serial numbers attached to the account logged into the e-shop at the moment.
Remember, this is in regards to the multiplayer database only and does not affect your purchases and activations.
Repeat for each of your e-shop accounts.
After all of your DCS serial numbers are unbound, login to DCS World multipayer from the game's interface. From this point on, all serial numbers of the installed modules will be bound to the current multiplayer account automatically.
We plan to further improve the serials page in the future.
The DCS World release version includes an unfortunate bug, which crashes the software when accessing Su-25T and Ka-50 training videos.
Those in need of the training can download a Hotfix from the User Files section and unzip all of the files into the root folder of the game.
This bug will be fixed in the next patch.
