  1. Don't worry about the other two errors, they happen on everyones system.


    To be clear, are you now using a Fresh Install of DCS 2.5 or an upgrade from 1.5 to 2.5, if the later I suggest to start fresh with a DCS 2.5 install, there are just to many things to go wrong with upgrading from 1.5 to 2.5, a lot of differences in config files and the like.


    Regards, Ian.


    Thanks for your reply, this is an update to 1.5. So what I'm going to do is take your advice and just remove DCS completely and grab a fresh install of 2.5. Because I don't wanna be bug fixing and fault finding all the time.


    One other question though, I have modules F16, Spitfire and Hawk I ought from the DCS website, but previous to this I was using Steam and got the Huey (which I love). But DCS is uninstalled via steam, how do I add the Huey back once I have a fresh 2.5 install?

  2. OK so I've found logs for 1.5 and 2.5


    After having a look I've found 2 lines in the log which seem to cause the same error on both 1.5 and 2.5


    1.5:- UIBASERENDERER: Cannot load font [C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World 1.5\dxgui\skins\fonts\]!


    2.5: - UIBASERENDERER: Cannot load font [D:\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World Stand Alone\dxgui\skins\fonts\]!




    1.5:- Dispatcher: Error starting Game GUI: [string "./MissionEditor/modules/me_aircraft.lua"]:183: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)


    2.5:- Dispatcher: Error starting Game GUI: [string "./MissionEditor/modules/me_static.lua"]:325: attempt to index field 'categories' (a nil value)


  3. Thought I'd get back into DCS after a long hiatus.


    So I ran DCS 1.5 and it ran the update tool, so I clicked to update DCS to 2.5. Great.


    But now when I start the sim it goes through to the loading scree and then just sticks there at 61%. I've googled, I've uninstalled the old version, I've tried keeping the old version as a separate install, I've removed mods, I've tried running 1.5 but that sticks at 57%.


    This is probably a a really common bug I dunno but I'm getting hella frustrated with this. My specs will run the game before someone proffers that as a solution - plus under spec should not prevent the game from loading completely.


    Before I go ahead an bin the game right off my PC for a clean install what can I do?


    Any help muchly appreciated. Just wanna fly my Huey!!!
