How to install LOMAC to have FC3 included in DCS?


Recommended Posts

Today I bought Lock On Platinum as it is needed to run Flaming Cliffs 3. This contains the original LOMAC and Flaming Cliffs 2.

 

With FC3 being sold for a special price from 06.17. on, I want to install LOMAC in a way that FC3 will be part of DCS (DCS is already installed on my PC along with the module of the A-10C).

 

When I was starting the LOMAC installation it proposed a "ubisoft/Lock On blabla" -folder to put the files in. This is of course not the folder where DCS is installed. How is this installation done right to make the integration of FC3 into DCS work???

 

I'm thankfull for any advice! :)

Personally, I would leave LockOn installed unless you are really tight on disk space. When that sudden need to reinstall comes along, will you want to bother with the LockOn CD again and will you know where it is?

Yeah excellent point! I chose to whack it, but have the CD close by should I need it again. No real reason other than it made me feel better to remove the LOMAC directories :music_whistling:

I'm just saying that you don't need LOMAC FC1 and FC2 to get FC3. You only need any of the previous versions. I bought a old second hand copy of LOMAC for a no more than 5 bucks, and FC3 works perfectly.

 

And it doesn't matter where you install it. I installed LOMAC on my D drive, while I install al my DCS modules including FC3 on my E drive.

Did you test it? Will it work to have FC1 installed (LOMAC already de-installed then) and install FC2 or FC3 on it? Or do you still need the LOMAC installation as as prerequisite for installing any of the FC versions?

kind regards,

AFAIK, any of the previous versions is needed. You need either LOMAC, FC1 or FC2 to be able to install and play FC3. That's it. So you can have FC1 and not have LOMAC and FC2 and install FC3.

LOMAC is required for FC1. Irrespective of version (FC1 or FC2), LOMAC will always be required as a first-install.

Have a read: Lock on buying, really confused??

 

Something I like to add - explanation why you (and also probably many others) are confused:

 

As Eagle Dynamics was developing LockOn 9 years ago , UBISoft was the publisher an owner of LockOn.

 

Up to now Eagle Dynamics/TFC doesn't owns any rights for re-releasing Lockon or offering it as Download..

But they made a agreement with UBI that they can use parts of the code in DCS.

( or something like that )

But FC still can't be offered as a stand-alone product by ED/TFC without LockOn.

 

That's why we have to keep a copy of UBI's LockOn to be able to install FlamingCliffs .

And I see it as a spectacular negotiation success of ED/TFC with UBISoft that we are able to buy LockOn+FC2 in a single box wink.gif

 

Some more trivia:

That's also the main reason why DCS was invented. -BlackShark was first planed as a add-on for LockOn-FC .

 

This was a official teaser screen-shot for BlackShark back than - and look what's written in the upper-left corner:

lockon_blacksharkscrn01.jpg

 

...and to reverse it back in some kind of way, to use code that was exclusively written for LockOn (as it is still used in FC3...) we have to make LockOn part of DCS so we can use FC3. Got it?

I con't care, they should call Ubisoft and make a deal. There will allways be possible to make a deal.

Why, it costs them practically nothing to make money from the situation? There is no logical reason to stop.

A deal was already made: Ubisoft permits the FC products, but on condition of requiring LOMAC.

So yes, a deal can always be made. :)

 

I guess the alternative would be to putchase the rights to lockon, but that would probably be prohibitively expensive.
