The DCS Updater GUI Utility

Recommended Posts

the VR_MODE Function does not apply to the Normal Launch Button, it's only part of the Launch VR ON/Function.

 

 

As for presets, once a preset is selected, launch DCS, Configure, exit. select another preset configure, exit, repeat as needed.

Thank you for this powerful tool! It's really a  great help, especially for those working with VR!

 

As for the presets, the don't work for me. I tried it with the launch button and also with the VR ON / VR OFF button. But it will always load the last settings i aplied in DCS. The log file also states (when i start DCS) that i am using the "default preset" although i selected a different one.

I installed and set the paths properly but there is no build version nor can I select oneScreenshot 2021-05-19 192922.png

What's the path under DCS World Patch? It's obviously not finding the DCS Install, hence the red square.

Can the utility minimise to the system tray?  I would prefer it this way cause when I start DCS, I would have to swap to the Oculus app to enable fix the frame rate without ASW.

Can someone confirm that presets are working? I tried everything as discribed by @SkateZilla but DCS only opens with the last set settings no matter what I do. 

 

Presets are working correctly for me, please attach a zip of the application log file.

I am using the option described. Unfortunately, on Alt+Tab, the application still has a "handle" on the task bar. If an application is "minimised to system tray", there would be no icon/handle on the task bar. So I guess the answer to my original question is "no". It is kinda strange that Update Utility also has an icon in system tray at the same time.

I will have an Option to Keep in System Tray or Hide in System Tray when Minimized in the next build

Thanks for having a look. Here's the log file. I opend DCS with preset 1, then closed DCS. Then i opened it again with preset 3, made some changes and closed it again. And finally, i opened DCS with preset 1 again to see if the changes are effective but i had no joy. It opened DCS with the same settings as per preset 3.

It's was integrated a while back, but removed as it was thought to be causing hidden window problems, which was found out to be a different issue altogether, so I will be re-enabling the system tray option in the system tray menu, it will show as "Hide App in Taskbar when Minimized", and will remove the app from ALT+TAB Windows as well.

I have run a repair.  Many times. No effect. Even direct DCS launching won't launch DCS.

I want to update the skatezilla app to the latest version. Is there no website we can go to to download the latest skatezilla app version?
