DCS Fails to launch post recent update (June 2023)

I run DCS open beta. Both ST and MT .exe fail to launch DCs post yesterdays update. Upon executing a start, apart from the cursor timer showing for a few seconds, nothing occurs. I don’t even get the small DCS window that opens as the game begins to load. I’ve tried launching from both desktop shortcuts and directly from the .exe within the bin-file.
 

I’ve undertaken a full repair, to no avail.

Windows 11, NVIDIA GTX 3080, 13th gen i7-13700kf, 32 GB RAM, OpenXR

Thanks

Hi. Try this:

  1. Browse to "Saved Games/DCS.openbeta/Config".
  2. Rename your "options.lua" file to "options.lua.bak".
  3. Test DCS.
  4. If this doesn't change anything, rename your whole "DCS.openbeta" folder to "DCS.openbeta.bak" (you will need this backup folder - do NOT delete it).
  5. Test DCS. It will ask for your credentials and you will have default bindings. This is normal, and I will tell you how to get your custom keybinds back.
  6. Still no joy? Then run a DCS cleanup and repair.

Don't accept indie game testing requests from friends in Discord. Ever.

Hi, thank you for your response. Unfortunately, DCS still will not start.

@Rabies  Check if DCS starts fine with "pancake" (2d) mode.

if it fails, try uninstalling/reinstalling your GPU driver.

I have tried that, and now have resorted to a new install. DCS is still not launching, even in pancake mode.
