Even after updating I can't get the module to install because it says I am still using 1.2.8 :/

 

Would have preferred them to just wait until tomorrow if it would have meant releasing without so many annoying bugs

Hi Ramsey,

 

Are you trying to update DCS world or DCS world open beta. I am asking because when I tried to install F86 Sabre, it worked for DCS world, but not DCS world open beta (although I had updated both to version 1.2.9)

I bought and downloaded the module, I launched DCS world and was promted to updated to 1.2.9. It downloaded and appeared to install correctly. I then tried to install the Sabre module, and that was my first sign of trouble... Installer said I was still on 1.2.8. I launched the game and the bottom right still says 1.2.8.27915, but there is a F-86 icon now... Wtf.... Also I have tried running the updater again (it just pops up for a second then dissappears), running repair, and even trying DOS commands. Extremely frustrated...

 

EDIT: also I've never messed with the beta stuff so I am assuming I am using the normal version.

Go to the In Game Module Manager and see if you can download it from there.

To run the module you need to have the 1.2.9 30604 version in your DCS World.

So if you installed the Sabre on top of 1.2.8 it is creating a problem now.

 

Check on the modlue manager if the F-86 is installed. If so, Unistall it using the basket symbol

 

Then close DCS restart it again and try a trpair and then an update.

Only when you have managed to upgrade your DCS World t0 1.2.9. 30604 try to install the module.

I recommend using the Module manager for downloading and installing the Module

Well none of that worked... This sucks...

 

I don't understand why a straightforward thing is being such a headache. I've never had this time of issue before and frankly I want to fly my 50.00 jet

problem is the very first thing I did was run the updater and allegedly updated to 1.2.9 but for some reason DCS world is acting like it never happened. . .

Try to revert to the previous 1.2.8 Open Beta Version, then force update to 1.2.9 Open Beta

 

So:

Type: dcs_updater.exe update <branch>:<version.subversion>

dcs_updater.exe update openbeta:1.2.8.27915

 

Then Delete the F-86F folder from the /Mods/ Folder if present.

 

Then

Type: dcs_updater.exe update <branch>:<version.subversion>

dcs_updater.exe update openbeta:1.2.9.30604

 

Then

Type: DCS_Updater.exe install <module>

DCS_Updater.exe install F-86F

(Note, I'm assuming the ID is F-86F, I am not at home so I cant confirm it., Logging into Module Manager once you have updated to v1.2.9 successfully should allow you to install from there too).

Type this where? The command prompt?

something is stopping you from updating to 1.2.9 or you're launching the wrong shortcut

 

make sure you dont have any Virus Scanners or anything blocking the update process from running.

I don't have anything running at all, brand new PC with a totally clean HD. And the 1.2.9 update is going through like everything is fine. ED and BST have jacked something up here, because this isn't working right...

 

I REALLY would prefer not to have to do a reinstall and waste key activations on this mess.

if it's listing 1.2.8 in the bottom right of your main menu, then it's not updating.

 

There should be an Update.Log somewhere, that might tell you what the issue is (I'm in office so I am not at my PC to check).

Hi,

 

The problem, .. as I see it, .. is that the F-86 installer is kinda crippled, .. in that, .. it will ONLY allow you to install in the DCS World folder, .. and not the DCS World Openbeta folder. You can't even point it to the DCS World Openbeta folder, .. as the installer keeps wanting to append \DCS World to it .. so you end up with \Eagle Dynamics\DCS World Openbeta\DCS World ...

 

My DCS World is sitting at Vers. 1.2.6 .. whereas my DCS World Openbeta is sitting at Vers. 1.2.9

 

What I did was rename my DCS World folder to something else, .. then renamed my DCS World Openbeta .. to DCS World.

 

The F-86 installed normally, .. and once it was completed, .. I renamed my folders back to the way they where.

 

.. make sense?

 

Try renaming your folders etc. etc. ...

 

Didn't have this kinda problem, .. when installing any other modules into the DCS World Openbeta folder

 

 

Cheers

Tom

You dont need the installer, just use the Module Manager or Command Line.

 

/Eagle Dynamics/DCS World Open Beta/bin/DCS_Updater.exe install F-86F

Enter Key

I've never used any type of Beta DCS world, only normal versions. The problem seems to be that my game is just refusing to update. I'm not at home but when I get back I will look at the update log. Bummer all my flying time this afternoon was ate up with this...

Guys this will be easier to solve if you attach your logs

and your auto update log which can be found in your dcsworld directory

I actually have a steam installation, so I don't have an auto-updater. Is there a file or something which the .exe parses to verify a correct version, or anyway to bypass it?

Please, post your autoupdate.cfg from the game install dir.

Forcing our installers to work with Steam-based DCS is a wrong idea.

But I'm confused, the files which it uses are exactly the same. Perhaps their should be a disclaimer that the Steam and ED installations are incompatible, even if the games are the exact same version.
