Excellent interactive (A10-style) training missions from BigfootMSR :
KA-50 Black Shark 2 Training missions

Hi Bigfoot,
I made a package that unifies all your BS2 trainings that are available up to now in one package that will integrate the lessons into the Menu of BS2.

Preview:

BS2 menu integration for Interactive Training by BigfootMSR




This pack will integrate all interactive missions into the training menu of BS2.

Simply copy the "Training" folder into your BS2 installation folder. (and allow to integrate/overwrite if you are updating)

Example path >> G:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS Black Shark 2


This will add two new categories:

Update :

Now the Training missions are complete:
BigfootMSR has release the "Datalink and Wingman" mission.

Download the complete package:

Missions that are included:

1.'Interactive: Aircraft Operation'

>Aircraft Start-up
>En-Route Navigation Training
>ABRIS AMMS Overview
>ABRIS Advanced Training

2.'Interactive: Combat Employment'

>Weapon_Employment
>Counter measure training
>Datalink and Wingman


Now you can start these excellent training missions by using the "Training" menu button.

If you are updating > just simply let windows overwrite and replace the old "Training" folder in your BS2 install.




Valuable info for those that have difficulties activating the triggers in the ABRIS lessons:

I have noticed that the buttons seem to trigger better when you are zoomed in on the ABRIS and not adjusting your view. So, don't use the trackIR(I had to stow mine for these) Pressing and holding the mouse button and making small circles over the button will get them to trigger as well. This is a strange problem with black shark and not the triggers themselves however.

Sorry, No.

BS1 doesn't support this trigger system for the cockpit that allows you to highlight the switches.

These are great BTW. I played through them last night. They are nice and short, which make them perfect for refresher if you've been away from the sim at all.

Hello guys,
Sorry, I forgot how to get these mission downloads working in the sim. I have the zipped folder named "Weapon Employment" downloaded to my documents. Where do I go from there? Seem to remember something about renaming a file to .miz?

Sure could use this training help, kinda rusty.

download the file from the site. If its named .zip, just rename it to .miz Then load it up under missions in black shark... should work that way.

Thanks, BigfootMSR. Not sure why it's still not working. For example, I downloaded a folder (not file) called "Cold Start Up.zip". It contained some .ogg files, mission, options, and warehouse (no extensions). I tried renaming the folder "Cold Start Up.miz". It was not recognized in game.

I tried unzipping the folder and renaming it "Cold Start Up.miz". Also not recognized.

I tried adding .miz to Mission (file), this did not work either. What am I missing? Thank you for the help!

Forgot to say, I did move the folder to "Missions" Folder in Black Shark 2 Folder.

Sorry its taken so long to get back to you JimD... What version of Black Shark are you running? The missions I have made are for version 1.1.1.1. If your running an earlier version the mission wont work.

Ok, just checked to make sure. It's Black Shark 2 version 1.1.1.1 Guess I'm lost on exactly what to rename. (One of the files in the folder, all of the files, or just the folder name?)

I guess in your case, it would be the .zip folder that contains all of the files. It needs to be in the origional file format or not unzipped. I don't know why your computer is downloading it as a .zip file and not as the .miz when you download the file from ED's site, can you select a different option for file type during the download process? click download and when you save as.. look at the different file types you can choose from.

Thanks BigfootMSR! Your last post solved the problem. I had been downloading the files to an old computer and then transferred them to my Windows7 Sim computer. That is what messed up the file system.

Tried a direct download this time and all is well. I'm happier than a termite in a lumber yard, thanks for your understanding.


Update: Just flew one of the missions, truly excellent work and much appreciated!

Aw bloody hell! Thanks a lot BigfootMSR, now I've got to let the moths out of my wallet to get my credit card out so I can finally upgrade to BS2!

Cheers!

Big thanks to Peter_P and Bigfoot for putting these together; they're a huge help since I've been a bit out of practice with the Black Shark. Much better than the grainy video tutorials previously available. Thanks!
