Why push DCS Updates before compatible versions of the modules are on the site?

If you're logged in, and you've purchased A-10C/UH-1H, then you should have an Install button.

 

or Start a Command Prompt

Type: CD\

ENTER Key

Type: CD Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Bin\

ENTER Key

Type: DCS_updater.exe install A-10C

ENTER KEY

 

Not sure what the HUEY Code is,

Try:

DCS_updater.exe install UH-1H

This still kinda highlights a problem though, because if you bought A-10C off of Steam or as the standalone boxed version, you can't see that in the module manager except for under the next tab - where you can't choose to install / update, only see the actual serial number you have for it.

 

It seems the list only shows bought modules from the website, but should instead check, just like tab 2, if you own a serial number for it and make it possible to manage it just like the ones you bought straight up from the site. Reckon the check is against the buy list instead of the activations list or something like that.

Updates are pushed out ahead of the installers for the reason c0ff stated in another thread.

 

Like i said, you can use command line to install or revert back and install then update again.

What if ED actually documented the Module Manager and provided instructions for folks in these situations? Just a thought.

like a nice HOW TO video on youtube

There have been a lot of questions from forum members lately about this.

 

If there was a way to integrate your keys from steam onto the EA site, that would help as well, so people get the "install" option instead of "buy" for the Module Manager.

Yes, an option to integrate into the Module Manager serial numbers that we didn't get by buying directly from ED (for example, Steam serials) would be VERY welcome.

my Steam A-10C shows up... Shrug....

 

It shows up under one part of ED's site, but not on the other..

 

Rightfully so, one shows "myserials" and one shows account purchases.

Installed modules are updated through the auto-updater together with the update of DCS World. Why bother with module updates through the module manager?

Some people have updated DCS: World before installing their modules.

 

In this case, the "older" downloadable module from the website no longer installs on the most recent version of World. So, they can either revert back to an older build, then install the module via website download, OR just use the module manager to get the latest build of that module. Problem is, not everyone has all their owned modules available through the Module Manager, hence the problem.

Well if you just downloaded the full version of world, and ran it, the only way to get the module without reinstalling would be the module manager.

We talk about updates, not new full installations.

What I meant was that if someone has been playing with just the SU25T (for example) in World and has updated to a sub-version which cannot be downloaded on its own yet. If this person then purchases a module, their only way to install it would be the module manager I think, unless they wanted to temporarily roll back their version of World.

 

If they're only updating something they already have installed, there is no need for the module manager, as the auto updater does this job.

Anyone have a good thread bookmarked that explains these issues to a DCS beginner? Thanks!

When I recently purchase the Huey the banter in forums was to install using the module manager. There was no install button in the module manager just the buy button on the right. I then downloaded the install from DCS site which was the previous patch version. When I attempted to install this version up popped a message saying that it was incompatible with the current install and couldn't proceed. However what it must have done was update the registry in trying to install it because I then went into DCS Module Manager and the install button was now available. I clicked it and it then downloaded it again from there and it all went well. Not a solid install procedure I must say.

I have the full version and only update with the auto-updater, not using the Module Manager. I used to update long-hand. What a joy using the auto-updater.

 

What's up with the FW-190D9? It shows up like the Su-25T in the Installed modules listing, but with no key. I have the Su-25T with no key. I do not have the FW-190D9.

 

I have all the modules except CA. My Black Shark is the Upgrade version since BS1.

 

Module Manager shows me logged in, yet in the Home location of DCS where I have purchased all my stuff in the past---I am not logged in. Seems like a security risk if somebody cracked my PC to get my keys; granted it is not likely to happen, but I would think it could be an incentive for a person knowledgeable in the craft. The keys are most likely found in a file for each module within My Computer, somewhere, even without using Module Manager, just not easy to find.

I believe the module manager is basically a gateway between dcs and the dcs website(order history) Keys are pulled from the website linked to the purchase email address.

The FW-190D9 is AI only. I'm not sure why it appears as a module like that. It's designed as P-51 fodder and is not yet fit for user consumption.

IF it has a mod folder it will be in the Module Manager.

 

I can see the F-16 Flight Demo and some others.

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