    I had DCSW installed for the last week or so, and have been having fun flying with the Toad. I just bought via Steam, the A-10C. I noticed it was DLC, and from the Steam account, it wanted to install the DCSW. I didn't want it Steam to download the full 11-12GB's....

    So I took a chance and downloaded the A-10C from the DCS website. Then I used the CD install key from Steam, and I was able to validate and move forward with the install/registration. It said after the install key, I have 9 validations left.

      Steam activation keys

      I know this has probably been asked before, but will the activation keys from Steam work with DCS world standalone?

          I bought DCS: Black Shark 2 (download version) and tried to install it into steam following the instructions and I get an invalid key error. So am I guessing right in that Black Shark 2 doesn't work in steam unless purchased in steam? So now I have to install 2 versions of DCS?

            BS2, purchased from ED, will work in Steam. However, before it can work, a key must exist in Steam's database (so it knows it is valid). ED provides Steam with database updates on a periodic basis (monthly) last I read. I don't know what the schedule is but until that update occurs, Steam will not recognize your key.

              How to fix the "DCS World does not count time in Steam"

              How to fix the "DCS World does not count time in Steam"

              Start by downloading Steam Achievement Manager from http://gib.me/sam/ and extract it to a folder anywhere BUT the in Steam folder and start "SAM.Picker.exe".

              Then add DCS Worlds game id "223750" to the text field and then press "Add game", like this.



              Launch the game (DCS World) through Steam and when it's launched, Alt-tab to SAM.Picker and double click the DCS World image and press "Run", and then it should start counting time for DCS like this.



              When you're done playing, exit SAM.Picker, so it stops.

              If it stops counting time when launching a mission or something similar from the menu (Launcher.exe), try Alt-tabbing when you're in-game (like when in a mission, training, multiplayer etc) and not in the menu, and it should work!

              If you have any questions, post em'!

                Thanks, certainly wish they'd hurry up with that update

                    Steam modules on 1.2.7 Open Beta?

                    I'm hoping I can get some help here, as I just installed the 1.2.7 Open Beta and I got my A-10C and P-51D modules through the module manager without any problems, but I cannot install the UH-1H module because I purchased it through Steam. The download on the DCS website is the 1.2.6 version and when I tried to install that in the 1.2.7 Open Beta it told me that the version was not compatible.

                    So how do I get my Steam UH-1H module in the 1.2.7 Open Beta?

                      Use License management Page to Activate License on your ED Login,
                      http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=116362

                      Then Log into Module Manager, and VIOLA, it will prompt you to download UH-1H

                      Or

                      <Root>/program files/eagle dynamics/DCS Open Beta/bin/

                      DCS_Updater.exe install UH-1H

                      Pretty sure using license page should work though.

                        That did it, thanks. I'm glad they made that management page, it makes Steam integration a lot easier.

                          My P-51 CD key will not register on Steam. On ED's website it seems to be binded to my account like all my other modules. I got it a few months back and have been trying to add it for some weeks.


                          Anything else I should try?

                            Still time active games ....

                            The time of steam games are still not counted, and the comunity steam does not work in games!

                            This is idnamisible we waited 1.2.7 and still nothing!

                            Especially when we do a Returns to the office games unstable crash!

                            I vien lose any time in you, even if you do a great simulator, I am disgusted that the steam community (SHIFT + TAB), Ne is always ignored in 2014

                            Me and most of joeurs on steam, ON IN A BIG!


                            " The Steam Overlay Is Not Working / Time Played Is Not Showing

                            A known bug and being worked on. No ETA as yet. "

                            LOL
                            ---------------------------------------


                            Les heurs de jeux steam ne sont toujours pas compté, et la communauté steam ne marche pas en jeux !

                            C'est inadmissible, on a attendu la 1.2.7 et toujours rien !

                            Surtout que quand on fais un Retours au bureau le jeux instable crash !

                            Je vien de perdre toute fois en vous, même si vous avez fais un simulateur génial, je suis dégoûté que la communauté steam ( SHIFT + TAB ) , Ne soit toujours pas pris en compte en 2014

                            Moi et la plupart des joueurs sur steam, ON EN A GROS !
