  1. ...wow...unforseen consequences. But uninstalling or simply deleting that dlc folder should fix that i reckon.
  2. Again, thanks for resolving this. Ideally ED would do something about that red ribbon "not installed module" reminder. I feel its pretty annoying that this shows up on every dcs launch.
  3. Afaik they promised, and thats what is listed on the store page aswell, several campaings including one placed on NTTR: from the store page: Caucasus campaign* Mini NTTR DACT campaign* Mini Caucasus introduction campaign.* Instant action and single player missions That mini NTTR campaign was than replaced with the already existing and sold DLC campaign by Bunyap. Anyway, i did not have an issue with it, we got other good stuff later on that was not part and parcel of the initial module specs, so i am not complaining. @razer668 But why, you still have access to that campaign, it is part of the module that you have payed for. Fire up dcs and check the Viggen campaign section, its still there. You don't have it as a redundant DLC folder anymore though. But the exact same files exist on your hdd. Despite, since it is part of the module it has no DRM anymore so you could in therory make it a coop campaign without having to edit files outside the ME to get it working.
  4. Yes, apparently ED/Heatblurr finally got this right! Yes, i bought it too, but this dlc campaign has become totally redundant last year (or even 2019) when Heatblur added this campaign to the actual Viggen module to fulfill their promise for a full featured campaign. I reckon they figured it was the most sensible scenario for the Viggen on the currently available DCS terrains, and it was probably cheaper to make a deal with Bunyap/ED than to develop something separate. I have been asking for removing this redundant for 1.5years and they finally did. Probably a good sign for them really trying to finish the Viggen overthe next couple of months. So you have not lost anything...except you now save 500mb on your harddrive for not having that campaign installed twice.
  5. Apparently the separate DLC Red Flag campaign has finally been removed from DCS....much appreciated, thanks!
  6. DLC campaign gone from the game....thanks for getting this done! Yes, apparently ED/Heatblurr finally got this right!

  7. And Cobra,.....for that tentative big mid November update, would you please be so kind and give this long standing issue about the previously seperate Viggen Red Flag DLC campaign, now completely redundant as it has become part of the actual module another push? Reported here: On every DCS launch i get this red ribbon reminder to install this dlc campaign...which is obviously already part of the actual module.
  8. @Heatblur Anything you can do about this? Please bring this up with ED again. Should be rather simple to remove that standalone version.
  9. This might be due to some .net framework updates missing nor not being available on win 7. Searching for this very .dll file on the net gets results about a similar issue with the epic games launcher and folks troubleshooting it on Epic's forums. I reckon you needed to place that .dll in a different location in one of your windows 7 system folders or so, not inside DCS. The answer might be here: https://forums.unrealengine.com/t/prgram-cant-start-cause-api-ms-win-downlevel-kernal32-blah-blah-dll-is-missing/156022/63 Let me if you get it to work on win 7. From your report it seems that 2.7 already does not even start without issues on win 7, even if you get it installed via steam. So i guess i won't waste time chasing this up myself and take a break from DCS until i find the nerv and muse to setup Win 10 according to my privacy standards and rip every bit of telemetry, auto-updates and Cortana etc. out of it. Maybe during the next winter season. Maybe most of my EA DCS modules have fully matured by then as well
  10. @DeCypher You make some good points. I am on windows 7 and until a bad supprise on Wednesday i thought "win 7 ain't officially supported anymore with 2.7" meant ED would not lend support in regards to getting it to run or when experiencing bugs (which would be fine i reckon). But i can't even install the update or install a fresh additional 2.7 copy because the installation is completely blocked. So i sure would like to know whether this is due to real technical differences (win 10 exclusive libraries or runtimes or something) OR if this is simply due to make a clean cut and have no hussle about win 7 users?
  11. So since the MI-24 is not that far out until EA, i would take it that the 3d stuff should be mostly done. So i hope some of the 3d guys move on once that is finished and give the A-10c/KA-52 treatment to the MI-8 and bring it on par visually with the HIND.
  12. Any plans that you port those training campaigns over to NTTR in the forseeable future? If i recall correctly you stated something to that effect couple of years back.
  13. I downloaded the map yesterday because of the freefly to see what the performance is. I have 24gb and even a simple instant action fills all memory to the brim, 23.4gb overall. Not an issue on the other maps anymore after i upgraded from 16 to 24. And its that weird issue where DCS seems to only use 6.5/14gb private bytes/working set according to sysinternals monitor, but still 23.5gb are filled to the brim when the instant you quit DCS 20gb are being freed up and you end up with the standard 3.5gb taken by windows. And i kinda would not want to lower graphical settings only to make this map run properly. The other ED maps are mostly fine now memory wise.
  14. So is there anyway to permanently disable the red ribbon "new modules" ready to install notification on the top bar when starting dcs? I find it pretty irritating that i have to see this every time and no matter how often i click it away dcs finds it necessary to remind me on each and every restart.
  15. Hey, i think that big round yellow "mark forum as read" button is in a position where it is clicked to easily by mistake. Happend to me already and an entire forum subsection was marked as read. Could you move this somewhere else? This is so close and similar to the location where one usually clicks on "jump to last read post" of a thread. Maybe move it to the opposite side, i.e. somewhere on the right pane of the forum.
  16. The TM TWCS throttle has a nice rotary wheel on its left side where the pinky rests. I have added a 15% deadzone on the zoom axis and can easily zoom in and out with high granularity with that wheel and the deadzone allows me to always hit mein default position again with out overshooting. Can't imagine something other than a wheel to do that job actually.
  17. Add the old (purple-greyish) visual style as an additional option. This was very unique and appealing. The new style is serviceable but fairly common as well.
  18. Every time i boot up DCS i have this red ribbon notification in the top bar from the modul manager remiding me that i have not installed modules ready to be installed. I don't need that reminder every time i start up dcs. Lots of people own modules but have only some, but not all installed. By choice, not for lack of awareness etc. Please add a tickbox to disable this notification OR make it so that clicking on "clear" on the actual modul manager popup sticks and does not remind the user again unless a new module has been bought/added to the stack. Thanks.
  19. Yes i get this quite often now on mobile as well. I have never used tapatalk and quite frankly don't even know how it works. I hope this notification goes away for good. I do not want nor need any links or notifications or account sharing or crosslink things with any other social media stuff like twitter, facebook or instagram. Having all those links and like buttons make me suspect facebook is now hooked into this forum as well gives me a quite uneasy feeling. Hope we simply get the dcs forum back without any social media hooks in place.
  20. Any news on this? I have reported this like well over six months ago to the community managers as well and nothing has come of it. I can't believe that it is so hard for ED to remove this campaign from the module manger.
  21. Thanks for the insightful explanation! If i recall correctly, ED has started to look into improving the ME a couple of months back seeking feedback from mission designers as to how best improve the ME. I guess this one is pretty high on the list mission builders have been pushing for.
  22. I have only the crudest knowledge of the ME, but what you are referring to by "copying the trigger logic ain't possible" means that this not accessable as a scrpit or any other text form (inside or outiside dcs), but indeed must be clicked through various menu levels in the ME to create/recreate? So even if you want to use the same trigger (configuered exatcly the same way) mutiple times in one mission you have to redo the clicky stuff each and every time?
  23. @DanieINL ...come on dude. You know it takes time for the devs to fix and enhance things. If nothing changes on the forum withing three months you could make a case, but its way to early to be super loud about this. I'd rather have them re-introduce the old colour scheme/visual style as an option like Denim and Dark mode. And of course bring back the latest thread info on the main page for each sub forum. And what i don't get; new forum but images are still displayed like in the 90s. There are so many good examples of websites and forums that display (especially in a dedictaed screenshot thread) screenshots screen filling and nicely spaced.
  24. Thas was ideed missing for a long time! Very nice idea to add proper training missions. I get why u implemented this in the Caucasus map, new users and all, but this sounds perfectly suited for the NTTR map. So if you get the itch again to port this to Nevada, this might be an even more immersive training experience. Anyhow, i sure gives this a try anyways!
