Is what you're saying that none have gotten out of beta?

Yup. Pretty much. I mean, $hit...DCS World is still in beta. Doesn't mean its not what is essentially a complete product. Its just still being improved.

Glad they've been working on these core issues.  Hopefully other stuff wasn't broken in the process.  :))

DCS World 2.5 Open Beta Update 4

Since the third update to the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta, the team has focused their efforts on loading time, memory leaks, and performance issues in the Open Beta. In this 4th update, we believe we have largely addressed these issues. For those taking part in the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta, we look forward to your feedback, and once we feel confident these issues have been resolved, we will move DCS World 2.5 out of Open Beta.

I heard Igor Tishin the founder and CEO of Eagle Dynamics passed away. Very sad news. Despite so much negativity in certain circles over the state of DCS, he certainly has quite a legacy to be proud of in my opinion.

RIP, Igor...now you are truly soaring above the clouds.

Can I ask if anyone else is having any issues after being in DCS?

I've just fired it up a few times tonight (testing performance) and each time I exit, I've went to go in Chrome...but all I get is a blank page. I can close chrome, but when I look at Task Manager, there's 5 sessions of chrome loaded (this seems normal...I've just rebooted and fired Chrome up and there's five sessions!!). I can close all but one of them. I then attempt to reboot and each time it says it's waiting for a task and doesn't say what the task is...so I click Force Restart...but it still just sits there and I have to soft reboot with the reset button.

I've tried this several times and whilst I don't want to put this at DCS's door - it is only happening when I've been in DCS and it happens every time. I can recreate it every time.

Also I saw nVidia was notifying me of an updated driver for my graphics card but when I tried to load the interface to get it, the interface wouldn't load.

I do have other things running and iirc D3DGear was a piece of software that caused an issue with a game some time ago (I think Project Cars 2)...so I will try an eliminate other programs. I'll update if I find the culprit

I just wanted to check if anyone else is noticing anything when they exit DCS.
For information, I've tied the above issue down to unplugging my X-52 Pro joystick. I don't know why, I don't know how...but it did it with DCS as mentioned above and I've since noticed it does it with IL2 Battle for Moscow/Stalingrad.

Basically, I can play the games fine. When I exit the game and unplug the joystick, Chrome looks like it becomes unresponsive, but it's actually mouse input. The mouse moves around the screen very laggy, clicking doesn't work and just produces an annoying beeping noise (lagged of course). Keyboard works fine.

I have yet to find a solution.

The Hornet must be very close. Very tempted to pre purchase at this point.

Be mindful that it will not sport a fully functional avionics set when it is made available as early access.
