Good Afternoon/Morning Pilots!, Just wanted to reach out and say that I am currently in the middle of a UI change for the app, once that is finished the next update will have all the new campaign

Change log 1.1.0.1040 / 5.3.2021: -Adjusted Settings File, Will Require user to re-do all settings -Updated UI Layout -New Module Graphics -New Button / Graphics Behavior -Merged/Condense

It's on my to-do list, depends on viability of the code. External Apps was moved to the main window, so it's available 100% of the time Edit, this is Done and being tested hopefully makes it

If someone could give some advice, I'd appreciate having my updater back. DCS works fine from desktop but with the updater i get this. It seems not to like dcs_manifest.bin anymore.

Tried many things to no avail. Thanks!!!

The Updater GUI has stopped working for me today. It died after I flew my first flight with 2.7 and the sim crashed. Now all I get is the splash screen before the process ends. I've tried deleting everything in the folder I'd stuck it in, redownloaded and tried again, but the same thing is happening. Anyone got any ideas?

Hi there! 

Sorry for the noob question. I bought the Spitfire a few days ago, and a few hours ago I decided to buy the Normandy map. The thing is, in both cases, I already had the files on my computer because when I downloaded 2.7, I said yes to the "download all modules" question (I didn't understand what I was being asked, figured yes was the safe answer. 147 GB later...). So when I downloaded the files, I didn't "own" them, but they were put there on my computer.

 

Anyways, now that I own both, do I need to do a repair to get things properly synced? Will the Normandy based missions that are normally included with the Spitfire be there? Ie will each of them "know" that the other exists? 

 

Thanks, and sorry again if this is a dummy question, I'm still pretty new to things here!

@SkateZilla,  would it be be possible to add a feature to run different apps/scripts depending on if you are going into VR or not, and similarly after DCS has exited?  Thanks as always!

@John Paesanoand @frostycab:  Have you tried any of the Troubleshooting steps found on the first page of this thread? I had to use it once a year ago.

 

See below for summary:

Troubleshooting:

-In the event the App's Config File is Corrupted, You Can Delete it by Deleting the Following Folder:

/<Username>/Appdata/Local/Skate_Zilla_Graphics_Stud/
 

-In the Event the App Starts Up, but is off the Screen (Corrupted Position)

Right Click The System Tray Icon fo SZGS Updater, Choose "Restore Application Window" Option

@SkateZilla:

I Downloaded, installed and setup the updated GUI utility in 5 minutes.  Works for me! 

Thanks for the Updates to the interface. The Custom Application button import of icons works great too!

 

Cheers.

Hey @SkateZilla, thanks as always for this, a couple of minor things, it didnt carry over settings, which was minor to correct, also minor it didnt detect any FC3 modules nor FC3 ?   Love the new UI and Icons!
