DCS 2 does not load // reinstalling everything without losing activation


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


with an update a month ago, I do not get past the mission

load screen. What usually took 30-45s now takes 30 mins

and counting. I tried the repair function at the DOS promt, but it did not help.


If anyone has a good idea, I'd like to hear about it :)


Now whats next? I thought of...

1) Saving all mission data / keyboard/joystick setup - what folder(s)?

2) Deinstall DCS via Windows programs

3) download DCS 2 and all modules and install


How can I reinstall DCS without losing an activation for all modules?

Run a repair :D


eventually deinstall mods. (gamebreaker)




If that didn't help!


Delete folder

C;\Users\username\My Savedgames\DCS world and run repair again in administrator!


100 % garanty (i hope for you). :pilotfly:


You can hit the start icon dcs with the right mouse button. and add te word "repair" in the command rule. Hit apply, yes against the administrator warning and run. Don't forget to set it back after the game is repaired!

If you want to do a clean install delete everything including you dcs folder in saved games.


use the latest client and download and install again, you will not loose any activations

Ah, mail from support. I have to admit, these guys are fast!


"This error occurs if you have disabled the TF-51, and this module is not updated

Please find the file pluginsEnabled.lua in folder c:\Users\User_name\Saved Games\DCS.OpenAlpha\Config\

Then delete it and run Repair

I edited the LUA and put the "false" to "true" to the TF-51 and there I go :)
