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.
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?

I believe there will be a short grace period, but not sure the length or anything yet, still a WIP.

Just tested. Unplugged LAN cable (no WiFi whatsoever in my PC), started DCS, cancelled login, got "Multiplayer will not be available", and other than that everything worked fine. I was able to launch the Harrier mission I'd just built for some screenies and could sit in the pit just fine.

OFC that's no guarantee it'll stay like this, but looks good so far.

Later, we hope this will allow usage of a module purchase between Steam and e-Shop versions.

Stay tuned for updates please.

Thanks

Will be fine. The systems will just need to perform a "phone home" verification every four days.

Most important, this is no constant online connection required.

Thanks

Greetings, thanks for all the great work! i think you are in the correct direction but i have a couple of questions: do you have planes for a two step verification or something like steam guard in case of stolen account? if i pass more than 4 day without internet i lost the posibility of use my modules? when i reconect to the dcs server i recover this?

Is there a limited number of activations (or even a concept of activation?), in case we switch back to an older version of DCS for example, then back to the latest, or re-install DCS, ...?
