FAQ - DCS A-10C CONTROLLER INPUT
Q: I can't start the engines / move the throttle:
A: When in Rampstart, the throttles are fixed in OFF position. In real life you have to lift a single throttle up and move it forward in idle position to start the corresponding engine. InGame unless you own a TM Warthog, you have to start the engine with keyboard-commands. Once this key-combination has moved the throttle from OFF position, it will work normally.
If you start on the runway or in the air, the engines are already running. As a logical consequence, you can move the throttles with your throttle immediately.

Q: FAN RPM % does not exceed 82%. Is something wrong with my throttle?
A: No. The engine is designed to operate at optimum performance, which is 82% FAN RPM. Also note, that there is a difference between Core RPM and FAN RPM.

Warthog isn't plug and play, I thought it was suppose to be?

Q: I don't see any performance gain between 32bit and 64bit. What am I doing wrong?
A: 64bit allows the software to access more memory, which improves loading times and reduces stuttering and reloading. It does not increase FPS in general.
Q: HELP my training mission don't work. The instructor says to do something and nothing happens after I accomplish the task. HELP?!
A: Patch 220.127.116.11 training missions were not included with the patch. Download the latest training missions HERE LAUNCH
Q: The sim doesn't start up but just gives you a text message:
[string "./Scripts/Database/db_main.lua"]:58: attempt to index global 'log' (a nil value)
A: Then it is because you need to right-click on the start-up icon and "run as administrator".
Q: After ALT-Tabbing out of the game, I cannot restore the simulation. It still seems to run in the background, though.
A: ALT-Tabbing while running in fullscreen crashes the simulation at the moment. If you need to ALT-Tab out of the simulation, please use windowed mode.
Q: Can i install and run both the 32 and 64 bit versions on the same system with one SF key?
A: Yes, a parallel install is possible.
