Version française English version Tacview - DCS

NOTICE: In network games, the host must set allow_object_export = true in network.cfg in order to allow Tacview recording on clients computers.

Before attempting to manually install the export script, please check the following points:

  • TOP ISSUE: Check DCS World log C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Saved Games\DCS\Logs\dcs.log for any faulty addon. Make sure that all other DCS add-ons are working fine. Especially cockpits add-ons. Some times when an add-on is not properly installed or uninstalled, it generates an error in LUA scripts which prevents Tacview script from running.
  • Make sure that Record DCS World Flights is enabled in Tacview menu and a little DCS World icon is visible in Tacview status bar.
  • In Tacview, from the export menu, use the ACMI Files Recording Folder option to choose where each flight recording is going to be written.
  • Make sure you have re-launched DCS World and Steam after installing Tacview. This is necessary for Steam and DCS World to load Tacview export parameters.
  • In network games, make sure that host has set allow_object_export = true in network.cfg in order to allow Tacview recording on clients computers.
