      VG Servers are Back Up! *UPDATED AGAIN* TS3 Server is back; PR and Mumble are online, Arma 3 Servers are online but still need VG specific missions and configurations, should be done before end of week...   04/15/2017

      UPDATE Sunday April 23rd:
      Most everything is back online now.  The PR Server is running, and Mumble is working.  We have not yet made PR Updates available in TCAdmin, but several more people have access to update the PR Server (including me) and there should be little to no server downtime from future PR Updates.

      I've installed a second PR Server and still need to expand the VG PR License for it - it can be used for whatever, but I called it "PR EVENT SERVER" to start.  I figured we might also want a development server for things like FastJack's PR COOP Insurgency Mission testing, and we will take care of that this coming week as well, if able.

      The Arma 3 Servers have been reinstalled, and they are running basic versions of their former missions.  They still need to be configured, but they will remain online until this happens during the week (when PITN gets time).  I've set up A3 Servers with a Steam Update button in TCAdmin, any Arma Admin can now update to the latest Arma version much faster and easier, and without needing to wait for a Head Admin.    -Sem

      Sunday April 16th 2017:
      I've just received an email from the Server Host in Germany.  They host the server that runs our TS3 and various game servers here including Project Reality, and Arma 2 & 3.  Apparently, there has been a fault with our server host, possibly a hardware failure or such, but all servers in one part of their data center were affected including ours. We do not have further details at this time, but unfortunately this means VG Servers will be down until we can regain access to our server.  We were not given a time frame estimate or specific details of what damage was incurred, and we do not know if we have lost any data that was on the server.  We've been with this host for many, many years, and we've had nothing but great connections and fast servers.  Clearly this is a rare occurrence and we need to be patient as we weather this storm. I feel particularly bad for our loyal Project Reality players who were very patient waiting for our server to get it's most recent update, and I wish I could do something immediately to fix this.  It's a sad truth that it is out of our hands for the time being as we await contact from our host, and get a detailed damage report and estimate of how long until we are online again.  Of course, I've contacted the other head administrators at VG and apprised them of the situation.  We will update you all as we get information. Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

  1. Hey thanks for donation 

  2. Hi Brain, I have always used the microstick on the throttle to slew the radar cursor and it has always worked just fine until 4.33. I assume that the microstick is Direct X it gives me a button #33 when I depress the micro switch button in the UI. I do go into the Avionics set up and set the X and Y axis for slew, when I do this now the X axis settles half way across the window but when I set the Y axis it either goes all the way across the window or doesn't show at all. I can move it back and forth but it always settles far left or far right never in the middle as the X axis does. I have never set them to keyboard before, I will try that though. In the BMS direct X 1.6 program I assign cursor enable to the microswitch. Hope this answers your questions.
  3. Since installing Falcon 4.33 the radar cursor is out of control. It moves all over the MFD screen and I have no control of it including the locking of targets. Anyone else out there have the same issue? Any fixes? Help if possible would be greatly appreciated.
  4. I am still looking for some help to get on line on this server. If there is anyone that is willing to help me out I would appreciate it a lot. I have TeamSpeak and have gotten on line but what I am looking for, if it exists on the server is a free flight mission where anyone can join and fly as a lone wolf kind of mission and possibly join up with others if the possibility presents itself. I would not need much of your time. Like I said I don't know if what I am talking about even exist on the server, please let me know. I am available this week Tuesday on between 1200 to 1600 PST. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi SemlerPDX=VG= Thanks for responding, so we are both in Portland it looks like. Sorry I had some things to take care of and had to leave for awhile, sure wish I hadn't missed you. I am usually available to fly anytime Mon-Fri 1200 to 1600 and on Saturday from1200 to 1500. I use TS3 in DCS and have Veterans-Gaming ready to go in it. As I said I was able to get to the 2D map but no further. I will be on team speak tomorrow at 1200. Or if you would rather you could e-mail me a specific time @ swilkins@hevanet.com. Thanks again for the reply.
  6. Hi all, my name is Steve (Pinefang) and I heard of your site from a fellow veteran. I enjoy flying DCS A-10 and Falcon 4.32. I am new to the Falcon game and have been looking for a loose place to practice flying the F-16 in MP. I understand that there is an open server here that allows that. Thought I found it but couldn't get past the 2D map. Could someone help me with the prerequisites of joining up with you guys if possible? Thanks in advance.
