    my price changed prior to paying. it changed to $9.99 then i used some miles and it changed to $1.52. then i attempted to pay. a matter of fact i made the purchase and the pay system glitched on my phone. so when i got home signed in again and saw a message something like "waiting for payment". i paid and off i went.

      I was told that you have to go all the way to checkout before the $10 upgrade choice shows up. I'll try that now.

      However, if that is the case, it's a seriously poor web design by ED for not having that choice available up front. I'm very hesitant to click on Buy for $79.99 and hoping it doesn't charge my CC the full price.

      Edit to add: I wrote this post before I saw Silver devil's response. I'll try that now. Again shitty web design. Just saying.

          It showed $9.99 for me before checkout. Are you sure you are logged in? Did you buy the A10C origanlly from steam?

            Also confirming - click on BUY and then AFTER you login with your account - it'll change the amount to $9.99 - but BEFORE you pay.


            I paid - but don't see it on my modules list.


            Someone wrote I've got to be on beta - running 2.5.6 - isn't that beta? How can I tell.

              For some stupid reason I bought the Steam version, I think they relesed it first. Got it transfered to DCS and the module lives now under DCS whith the rest of my modules. Under open beta.
              I also tried to buy Tank Killer from DCS but got the Steam incompatible message and didnt dare go so far in the buying process as in pic below. So I bought it from Steam 9.99. But got worried when Steam wanted to install 3 components The Tank Killer , A10C II and Open Beta ? In a total different HD and using up 80Gb. Wow really 80Gb ? not only 1 Gb for the module.
              Luckily I found this thread and dared go almost to final buy.
              Is it safe to buy and do it really use up 80Gb?

              What the f*** cant copy/paste But the complete order shows again
              "This version is not compatible with STEAM version and can not activate it!"

              But still gives me a reduced price

                No. If it says 80 $ on the checkout page, that's what you'll be paying.

                You can download the Open Beta installer here:
                https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...wnloads/world/

                It will install an entirely separate DCS installation on your system.

                You can also use the DCS_Updater.exe to switch your existing Stable installation into Open Beta, or the other way around, if you're low on disk space.

                You can usually tell whether you run Stable or Open Beta by noting down your full version number from the right lower side of the DCS Main screen and compare it against http://updates.digitalcombatsimulator.com. Sometimes Stable and OB are on the exact same version, but most of the time OB is ahead a bit.

                Sure. Standalone and Steam installations are perfectly separate. You can't just run A-10C II from Steam and the rest from standalone. In order to run A-10C II from Steam, Steam needs to install all of the DCS base game, and it'll probably try to install all your DLCs. 80 GB isn't even that much. Get more maps and a bunch of modules and it'll easily exceed 200 GB.

                If you purchase from the DCS E-Shop, you can install and run DCS from https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...wnloads/world/. This is referred to as "Standalone". It'll probably sum up to something like 80 GB or more, depending on the modules you install into it. None of this will work in Steam.

                If you purchase from Steam, you can install and run DCS from Steam. This is referred to as "Steam". It'll probably sum up to something like 80 GB or more, depending on the modules you install into it. Alternatively, you can transfer the DCS licenses you purchased on Steam to Standalone and install the modules with active licenses into a Standalone installation. And/or you can run both in parallel.

                Choose either one, or a combination thereof.

                    I didnt have this issue. Mined showed up as 10$ from the catalog when logged in.
                    Bought it back in the 2010 as a Beta version via the store page.
                    Dont think its poor web design... rather than the different sources to buy it from (Retail, Steam or ED Store). Only thing that was not optimal was the missing preorder timeframe beforehand.

                    But have you sorted out your issues yet?
                    You showed a screenshot of your ingame module library, but does the A-10c (I) show up when you look at the table under "All active licences" when logged into your profile on www.digitalcombatsimulator.com? I assume the discount will be based on this.
                    If not, you might need to add the Licence to your profile again.

                      You can push all buttons, finally you will fill in your VISA/Mastercard and then you see the true sum and can hit the last buybutton. Its impossible to do wrong.
