Missions not loading anymore


Recommended Posts

I have the latest version of DCS 2.5, and I have a bunch of saved missions. Some of them stopped working - they don't load, while the others are still working okay. The ones that don't load either get stuck right at the beginning, or at the 97 caucasus.ng5. The log says this:

I haven't changed the missions, I have the latest drivers for GPU, I've done a Windows update and DCS update, but no change. The missions stopped working a while ago, but I'm not sure when exactly as I was flying different missions.

 

Any ideas on how to solve it?

 

ps: I just realized I posted it in New User Briefing Room instead of Guides and Tutorials... Is there a way I can move it?

Hi

 

please remove any unofficial mods or edits, then rename your dcs folder in saved games ( keep it as a backup )

 

run a slow repair on DCS or verify if a steam user

 

then restart DCS login and test

 

If it fixes it you can move your input folder from the backup to the newly created folder so you dont have to redo your controls. 

 

thanks

Thank you for your reply. I have Leatherneck simulation's MiG 21-bis, does it count as unofficial mod? Arent the missions saved in the saved games folder? If I delete/rename it, I won't be able to test if the missions are working.

 

I did run an updater for DCS, is that different than doing a slow repair?

MiG-21Bis is an official module made by licensed 3rd party. Mods (free, user made additions) like Navy planes or Airfield accessory are not.

 

Of course if you move/rename your profile you keep it as a copy. It's just for testing purposes but it may solve the issue. When you start DCS in newly created profile you can still load missions from the old one - just navigate to it by using double dots ".." from the mission selection.

 

Cleanup and repair is not the same as updating.

Also try loading the mission and resave it. Then try again. Upload the dcs.log if it fails again. Can you share the mission for someone to test? I can't - don't have MiG-21 module.

I can send the mission if anyone's willing to take a look.

Yes, please.
