I downloaded the Syria map on the day it came out. It has not worked. I contacted ED and was asked to send them various files. Being ignorant in IT knowledge this was a challenge especially as the address of the files I was asked for do not match my computer. DCS open beta runs fine. It simply will not run the Syria map. I suggested downloading again despite it taking almost 36 hours to do so. ED said this might not cure the problem. Downloading is however something within my limited IT skill set.
I fly the F18 and use the Nevada and Persian Gulf maps as well as the super carrier. None of these caused problems to install.
@Scoop completely forgot to get back to you on this. I’m very very sorry. I’m just coming off night shift and when I get up ill have a look and see what I can do. One thing. Have you run the repair function in skatezillas app?
Repair first. But do keep in mind that erasing and reinstalling is no longer a big step. I did it last month when I installed a new SSD. Took me an less than an hour to download and match the old settings and profiles. Made a HUGE difference in loading times.
It will not start at all. DCS does not think its there. Skatezilla does not see it either. There are no error messages as it doesn’t open/run. I think its a download problem, but ED said it might not be and I should hold off downloading again. However I can see the files -
Yes, check the “Terrains” tab in the module manager.
Also, you can take screenshots in DCS by just pressing the Print Screen key on your keyboard, they will be stored in: C:\Users\ YOUR USERNAME \Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\ScreenShots
My laptop complicates DCS. On the laptop I use it in its highest resolution 1920x1080 be able to read anything and to fly with it. I normally link it to a 4K TV in 4k. To open module manager however I have to set a lower resolution, typically 1280x720. Otherwise clicking module manager has no effect. Works fine if I do this. Updater now 2/3 through
