Default AV-8B COPY PROTECTION CHANGE

IMPORTANT: AV-8B COPY PROTECTION CHANGE!

Dear all,

With the release of the AV-8B today, it is import to know that this will be the first DCS World product that uses our new protection system. Rather than use StarForce keys, we are moving to a “keyless” system which binds your purchase to your www.dcs-world.com username, and NOT a key. You will not need a constant internet connection either. The new system will just “phone home” after a three day period or the next time you log into DCS World.

This new system will also provide benefits for Steam users and Gifting. Once those details are worked out, we look forward to sharing them with you.

We strongly believe that this will make protection of your DCS World products much more simple. At a later point, we hope to apply this same protection system to all of our other modules.

Also, the AV-8B release today is for the Open Beta version of DCS World. Please make sure you use this version and that you update it today.

We must release all new aircraft modules on the Caucasus map first as not everyone may operate one of the DCS 2.1 maps. We don't believe it fair to force customers to purchase one of these maps to fly their new aircraft. We do though plan to update DCS 2.1 for the AV-8B in the next one to two weeks.

Thanks,
The Eagle Dynamics Team

Will we be able to move/convert our existing keys to the new system?

Just AV-8B for now, but we hope to apply this to other modules later on.

Any chance you can port over the existing modules to this new system?

I particularly think this would be useful for those of us who bought the BS2 upgrade from BS1.

Bit of an irritation having to install BS1 just so you can install BS2 in DCS.

Thanks Wags,
Removes the necessity to copy and paste keys with every reinstall to something we can remember

Worked absolutely flawlessly on the Harrier for me (some 10 minutes ago), this is great news!

I actually bought BS2 full, just to get rid of this annoyance.

This is a really smart move and I love the fact that DCS now just knows what I have and manages the modules accordingly. Looking forward to having all modules on the new system. Perhaps with 2.5?
