Still looks keyed to me in 2.5.6. Shows serial number in Module Manager. Same with the other usual suspects, i.e. BS2 and FC3.

I tried switching to openbeta in DCS. Did not fix the problem. DCS won't start.

I get the message "Failed to request product key from Steam, please try again in a few minutes."

Problem started I bought F/A-18 and A-10C on sale today.

Any solution to unbricking DCS?

????

This is the first time they have been doing something like this on such a scale, probably running into problems with the old protection system (key-based system called Starforce) and now the newer DRM in combination with Steam. Cut them some slack, report your problems with as much detail as possible and they will fix it, I am sure of that

Hi all

If you are steam please remove the free trial A-10C using this guide

Quote:
Click on your username on the top right corner of the Steam window

Choose "Account details"

Click on the "View licenses and product key activation's" link on the right

Next to "A-10C Free Weekend", click "remove"
If you are not using steam and using stand alone use the module manager to remove the A-10c


If you made a purchase and are having issues please contact support directly they will assist you

Apologies for the problems, we had overwhelming demand and all keys were used.

Currently 2.5.5 still uses the old starforce keys, 2.5.6 is keyless.

Thank you

My father was trying to get the free trial on steam and sees the same thing.

Is this offer going to be extended so it can be fixed and people can try it, or will it just go away?
