Hey folks,

 

BIGNEWY has been so kind and posted a very interesting thread:

I followed the link and received a single serial number from two serial numbers for BS1 and BS2.

 

So far so good. If I now go to my profile on the DCS page, the new serial number is nowhere displayed. Thank God I copied it before, but it would be good if the new serial number can be found in the profile just like all other serial numbers.

 

Cheers,

Hi Madmonty

 

I will enquire about where the new serial is located after conversion.

 

If I find out I will post here and update the sticky

 

edit:

 

for now make sure you make a note, I have added this advice also to the stickys

Hi BIGNEWY,

 

thanks for your update.

 

I have received an email, however, the new serial number is still not available in my profil (neither within the details of BS1 nor of BS2). Also there is no new purchase listed.

 

I would appreciate it, if I could find the serial within my profile, since I am managing all of my serial numbers via my profile.

 

Many thanks in advance!

Hi BIGNEWY,

 

there we go! That´s not where I would have looked for the serial number, but at least it is saved somewhere in the DCS cosmos...

 

THANK YOU for your kind assistance!

 

Best,

Hey BIGNEWY,

 

starting DCS, I am now always asked for the new serial for BS2 and I have to "bind" the new key. Even if I have bound the new key, I am always being asked again when starting DCS. If I do not bind the key every time and cancel the process, BS2 is not available within the game.

 

I am still running 2.5.0 and have not changed to 2.5.1, since I have read about the FLIR-problems in A10C. So I don´t know if that problem has been resolved in 2.5.1.

 

I just wanted to let you know in case the problem isn't known yet.

 

Cheers,

 

MadMonty

Hi MadMonty

 

In the module manager make sure you only have BS2 and not the upgrade version.

 

if you still have problems contact support, they will be able to check the account for you.

If you have just updated from your old BS1+BS2 upgrade version try deleting the ka50 within the module manager and re-download the module again. It fixed it for me in the first place when i upgraded my serialnumber.

Thank you so much BIGNEWY and ED! I was really hoping this might happen someday so I can finally put that disk away and not worry about loosing it.

 

And thanks to erniedaoage, deleting the module and reinstalling it did the trick!

Sorry for the old thread but just wanted to check.

Been away from DCS since I bought the original Black Shark.

 

Just pre-ordered the F14 and have installed the latest DCS. Am I able to upgrade my Black Shark and use in the latest DCS or is this path no longer available?

 

Many thanks.

You can still use the BS Upgrade. (install BS1 first, then install BS2 upgrade).

Since about a year there is a new method, you can get a full BS2 version by changing your BS1 & BS2 upgrade key for a full BS2 key. Have a look in your profile.

The 'Black Shark 1' ---> 'Black Shark 2 upgrade' path is no longer available for sale, Black Shark 1 owners need to buy 'Black Shark 2', in order to fly the Ka-50 in DCS.

 

If you already own the 'Black Shark 2 upgrade', you can exchange the "BS2 upgrade key" for a full "BS2" key.

You can check your serial numbers by logging into your DCS Store Account and looking at the order details or at 'All active licences'

 

If you own BS1 via Steam, it doesn't have a key, so AFAIK you'll need to send support a screenshot to show it's in your Steam library.

Thanks.

I've downloaded a Black Shark upgrade that was in my downloads, which needed DCS World 1.2 to install into as opposed to the standalone original. Didn't buy that though, was just there in the product downloads so not sure that's the same thing.

Will see how it goes and whether it gives me a licence key.
