I suggest it runs authentication only when updating or rolling back DCS. This way, installed modules can rollback to previous working states in case bugs arise, thus preventing need to get online for authentication every three days. Similarly, helps module owners who dont have access to internet to enjoy them at current state if they are travelling or suffering from connectivity problems or hurdles to connect.

Strobe is jammer. Strobe to dash is under 35 km. HDD is 7 times range key. Radar to 160 km, IRST to 10 km. Stay low, but never slow.

I would agree as others have mentioned. I would like to have seen remove this DRM option.

Stop reading info from the other tabloid forums.

Starforce was a pain in the ass specially in some modules as MiG-21 (now solved). A simple BIOS change could trigger an activation. This system is IMHO much better.

Maybe for the other 59,876+ forum members there´s no option to click in that vote, like for example "Never for offline play".

Yeah that would have been a nice option to have had for sure
But alas we shall never know, MonnieRock did request that this option be added
to the poll but was refused

It's a bit of a stretch to say there are 60,000 active forum members...given that the viewing numbers are usually in the teens or lower for threads. I Imagine moving the poll from the popular DCS World General section to the seldom viewed Payments and Activation area helped limit the number of votes.

Either way, 80% of those that voted chose 30, or more, days.

Regardless, the point is, these polls dont even reach 1% of the ED customer base, I doubt the location would have made much of a difference, even if you had twice the votes, you are still barely scrapping the surface.
