STEAM Spring Sale


Recommended Posts

No problem activating steam keys on the standard DCS. You will just have to add dcs world to your library (don't download it) then click CD Key on the right to view the key.

Thanks for the response, I missed the Steam FAQ sticky just above the thread and found all I needed to know in there.

 

So, if anyone else has similar queries about Steam go check the FAQ :).

 

Bought the Mustang and the '109 :). Had to try very hard not to buy anything else, especially since I bought my shiny new Warthog only a couple days ago :P.

Get the Dora and F86 also if you don't have them yet. Unfortunately the Mig-15 wasn't on sale this round because it looks awesome to fly online.

Steam Keys can be used in the Stand Alone but nice the other way round.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

Noooo, I just bought the Mig-21 three days ago on steam for $50 because I thought the price wouldn't drop. Now it's 50% off lol. And I knew the sale was right around the corner but I didn't know it was going to be this Friday. Why do I never listen to my own advise about not buying a game for the full price...

I have purchased everything I have from DCS EShop. I do not want to purchase from Steam....seems like modules from both do not mix well.

I have two more aircraft I want to purchase....I will wait for the sale at DCS EShop.

Normally these topics in the official announcements section are locked. That said, I have had no trouble integrating modules from Steam into my E-shop collection. Steam provides an activation key that can be bound to your E-shop account.

If I buy modules for DCS off Steam, is it still possible to transfer the keys over to my ED account so I can use them as stand alone? Would rather not have Steam using up resources while I'm flying.

 

Just to note, it clearly states the license keys usage in the first post and first paragraph of.the steam.FAQ thread that is stickied to the top of the forum.

Buying off Steam results in less money for ED. But if you want to have a copy you can use on Steam you might want to do it that way.

 

If ED was worried about more revenue from their sales, they shouldn't have cut their own sale short by a day. They said their last sale would be a three day sale, but it only lasted two days :doh:

I did not see any way to add DCS World to my library. I WAS logged in but since I no longer have Steam installed maybe that was the reason why?

 

Is there a way to purchase a DCS plane without actually having Steam installed?

Will there be a Spring Sale from ED's own webshop? The reason I ask is because all of my modules have been purchased from ED's shop and I want to support ED directly. Unfortunately I missed the mid-winter sale and at the moment I cannot afford to purchase full priced modules. :(

Current specs: Windows 10 Home 64bit, i5-9600K @ 3.7 Ghz, 32GB DDR4 RAM, 1TB Samsung EVO 860 M.2 SSD, GAINWARD RTX2060 6GB, Oculus Rift S, MS FFB2 Sidewinder + Warthog Throttle Quadrant, Saitek Pro rudder pedals.

Please don't post weird statements like that again as this confuses other readers by upholding a false guess.

Technically there doesn't mix anything. You solely buy a key. Whether you download your purchased modules via ED's website or have them installed by a DCS World version you installed in Steam is entirely your decision and has nothing to do with the option to buy keys in different shops.

If you installed DCS World in Steam, the modules you bought in the steam shop will install automatically.

If you installed DCS World by downloading it from ED's website, you will have to download the modules also at ED's, no matter where you bought the key.

So obviously there is no mix.
