  1. Thanks SkateZilla I thought I posted some text to the above picture last night. I have no idea why or how it works but it did. again Thanks
  2. I have an odd thing going on, and not sure why. My beta is looking at my Stock Saved game folder when in my game, but the this App says it should not be. Is there a way to redirect it, other than using this program? Thanks in advance Even renaming the DCS folder and firing up the Beta It creates a new DCS folder, What am I over looking here.
  3. I'm just getting around to finding this stuff, But PeterP is still lurking it appears.
  4. @PeterP Thanks for Pioneering this! Is this the program your using to test your stick? It is asking for a payment, and even though it is cheap, I don't want to buy it and it not be the right thing. https://download.freedownloadmanager.org/Windows-PC/CL-Eye-Driver/FREE-
  5. EDIT: Resolved Mediacom says I have it right and they are open, Albeit the port checking sites say otherwise. I found some breather's and they are able to connect to my game when hosting. Are any of you on Mediacom, and port forwarding with the Mediacom supplied Technicolor CGM4231 router/WiFi? I have set my machine with a static IP and have it on the Ethernet and not WiFi. But none of the port checker sites IE https://www.whatsmyip.org/port-scanner/ show that I have an open port on 10308 I may have to invest into a router and dump theirs. I've scoured their site and any others that I can locate on a search with no luck all morning. Thanks for any input on this.
  6. Thanks Wood, as I figured, since I couldn't find an auto-updater for this app. I'll toss out the old and drop in the new.
  7. Howdy, I'm just now getting back into having broad band after about 4 years, I have a very early version of this, do I just toss it away, or can I just drop the EXE. in on top of the old version? I totally gave up Simming, due to the size of downloads and and frequency of them, I've got a lot of catching up to do.
  8. My solution to this PIA!!!!! https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=4188288&postcount=15
  9. Solution Started all over with new install, but first I renamed old install and the DCS folder in 'Saved Games" located in 'My Documents to protect it before the install of the new installation. That did not work, I guess I don't understand how to make that text file work. I then took my Mods folder from old install and copied it into my new install Then I downloaded the installers located here. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B1FNNwU4xwU-Ti00QWE2cWF6c2s Info on that I ran those to get my modules to install into the new installation. Once that was done I deleted the new DCS folder in "Saved Games" and renamed my original back to DCS Fired up the game, and began reintroducing my Input files back to the config of each aircraft. That is the most annoying thing of all this, so many updates in the past forced this, and something like this requires it also. Why or is there a easier way I just don't know. :( to get this new install with no decent broadband required installing it on a laptop with an external HD, and borrowed broadband in town. Then taking that materiel and transferring it to my gaming machine. So all the above was basically done with the laptop. Short installing DCS world in both machines so I could get the shortcuts in my Start Menu. On my Gamer I just stopped the download so I didn't waste my allotted 50gig a month and then the introduction of the input files after it was all transferred into my gaming PC. I have my actual install "X:\DCS World\bin\DCS.exe" in a separate SSD drive from my OS so if you do that you have that to consider when setting up.
  10. Ok, I took a laptop into town borrowed some broadband and installed it there. copied every thing over and I can get the game to run but not get most of my modules to work. https://imgur.com/2eEGnTA I've exhausted myself several times with reloading and even manage to finally get this function to work. and it created a folder of salvaged files and reloaded them, I have 122 gigs on this install so I know the stuff is there. " How to install DCS without Internet on PC ? (or traffic issues on PC) Due to the rather large volume of the simulator there are often questions about copying of DCS World, which is already downloaded on another computer. "Frontal" way of copying might work, but sooner or later it will end up in a complete reinstall. How to properly and safely do this: 1. Copy the existing module to any temporary location (external Flash Drive), preserving the folder structure of simulator (for example, E:\DCSCopy\). 2. Create in the root directory of the DCS simulator the text file with the title: dcs_local_source.txt 3. The contents of the file is the path to a temporary directory, in this case (UTF-8!): E:\DCSCopy\ 4. Run DCS World web installer and follow the installation process. The Updater will read the dcs_local_source.txt file and find your existing files, compare the version numbers, download all the required and will install it correctly. 5. After installation of DCS World on second PC, you can delete the temporary directory." https://i.imgur.com/s01HVQk.png
  11. I'm wrestling this too same reasons, so I took a laptop into town and installed it, then came home and transferred the files, Now it fires up but none of my modules short the A10 will load. and when I look at my profile here is says my modules won't run on the steam version. WTF i have never purchase the steam version. So now I'm trying to figure out this line. The contents of the file is the path to a temporary directory, in this case (UTF-8!): E:\DCSCopy\ I'm stuck here as pic shows, I have the files moved to the DCS Copy folder and the notepad as written to the best of my knowledge and it still goes straight for the download. https://imgur.com/s01HVQk What is this (UTF-8!) Oh and yest links to the complete set of install files, or updates would be awesome!
  12. Thanks c0ff I have no idea how that happened or how to fix it, can you expand on your observation for me?
  13. Yeah, it looks like I'm going to have to borrow someone's unlimited internet and download the installer to a laptop or stick and bring it home to this PC. just renamed that drive and went through the steps again. 02673.202 ERROR: Can't move G:\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\API/include/FM/wHumanCustomPhysicsAPI.h to G:\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\API/include/FM/wHumanCustomPhysicsAPI.h: (2) The system cannot find the file specified. 02848.449 === Log closed.
