Hello guys,

In advance a great thanks, Skull.

This morning, the DCS registry servers were not online. Maybe the Harrier wanted to call home today (3-day rhythm). Just a thought :)

The answer is ... 42! :captain:

Processor: Intel Core i7-7700K @ 4.5 MHz

Motherboard: ASUS STRIX Z270F GAMING

Module: 32 GB Kingston DDR4 @ 2400

Top of the forum:

 

Dear users! Due to second and the last in this year scheduled maintenance of the primary server, the DCS website, Module Manager, and Multiplayer (master server) services will be unavailable on Tuesday, December 19 starting at 06:00 UTC for a period of no more than 3 hours. The server's IP address will change, so we highly recommend that you update your DNS cache (run "ipconfig /flushdns" in Windows).

Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Requiring an internet connection and a live server to fly single-player offline is rather irritating, to be honest.

Absolutely and disrespectful :mad:

Hi again,

 

Today everything is good, my DCS work fine but is it possible to know why just the Harrier's module was blocked and not all the modules or just DCS World ?

Is it possible to have an answer from ED's team ?

Thanks again, Skull.

it's absolutely inadmissible, we bought this module, so we must be able to use it when we want, online or OFFLINE :mad:

ED must correct this immediately.

This system is totally unacceptable.

 

At least, we should have 3 days to play offline after a failed connection attempt, both solo and LAN.

I would still don't like it, but at least the guys who want to play after more than 3 days and have an internet connection problem could play.

The guys who want to physically gather for a LAN (during airshow for demonstration = promotion) could do it.

Air show LAN inside aircraft shelter on air force base, it's not DCS, but with current DRM system it will never be.

 

And there are plenty more cases where a guy may go away for a long time, in some remote place, without internet connection for weeks or months, and yet may be able to bring HOTAS and lap top to kill spare time (I used to do it).

I'm with you also jojo, this kind of protection will protect me to buy another module ...

 

One question, the "old" module like k50, a10..same thing ?

AV8B HARRIER module is working now.

Didn't see anything weird

Maybe a new attempt could be done?

see you

 

The problem happened when DCS server went down. The client who legally bought his module a fair amount of money has no control over this kind of issue.

It is most certainly under review, stay tuned, the new DRM system is a WIP.

 

 

it's not acceptable even during WIP.

Like said above this kind of DRM is counter productive for ED .

It is a regression for customers and a non sense in this small market.

A very volatile market....

Disapoint your core customers isn't a good solution to develop your business model...

And core customers quick make up their mind about compagnies using this kind of solution..

EA - Ubis soft - Microsoft ....

Not the way of "business history" even steam has a full offline sytem ...

 

I hope ED ll make the good choice for theirs customers for us and so for themselves

It's Early Access for the Harrier, things will change, evolve and be bumpy during this time, its to be expected.

 

Hello guys ;)

 

Yes one other solution would be possible and good, of course we live in the modern countries but if your servers are down we cannot noe more flight, if our home internet is down (it happens often where I live) no more DCS :cry:

It's really a big problem because this flight simulator is our passion but today in this state maybe not the best way to protected DCS World...

I don't know for the other members but according to the city you are in in France internet is not perfect and without this technology impossible to use DCS World :helpsmilie:

I hope that one good solution will be found, guys from all around the world I wish you a very good Merry Christmas ;-) Skull :thumbup:

ABSOLUTELY !!

 

I was more than excited about the Harrier and ready to buy but I finally did not buy it, and I will not.

 

When I play DCS (or any other game/sim), I want to have good time and fun, and not frustration.

 

Sorry ED, if you are comfortable enough to lose customers, up to you ....

The least of it, would have been to prevent before the provision. Not to leave the surprise to the customer.

 

It is clear to me that with this kind of protection that does not leave me free to play, when I want it, I will go my way.

I am on the serie since Flanker. But this...:joystick::helpsmilie::spam_laser::bomb: :furious: :pain::censored:

 

 

:poster_oops:

 

Sorry i use google translate.
