What version of DCS will I need for this map?

Currently I have 2.5 release branch installed. I had thought the Alpha branch would automatically be deleted but it is still installed.

 

With the PG map, can I use the release branch or will I have to use the Alpha branch? Or will I need a new beta branch?

 

To save time downloading, what is the best way to get the new PG map in a single install with NTTR?

Hi

 

the alpha branch is no longer used and will not be updated, you can delete it if you wish.

 

If you want to ensure you get the Persian Gulf first day I would recommend having the open beta, most early access modules are released to the beta first.

 

Release and open beta are the public branches now.

“Requires DCS World version 2.5 or above!” according the map description...

Thank you. If I download the beta version, will it pull files from the release version or will I have to redownload the entire game? Current install is around 90GB or so and just want to confirm before I start a massive download.

It’s supposed to be possible to easily switch from beta to release with minimal downloading by looking at the options you can do in this thread:

He wants to do it the other way around ;)

But that works the same: You just need to run the DCS updater with the following command: DCS_Updater.exe update @openbeta

This will convert your release branch to the open beta and is the quickest way to go.

 

If you prefer to install the open beta in addition to your release installation, then you have to download the open beta installer from the website and install it from scratch, but it should make use of your release branch and copy files from there to save download time IIRC.

You download the terrain module through the module manager within DCS.

Of course not. It hasn't been released yet. It will be there once it has been released, which will be the case later today.

 

Edit: Make sure you have the open beta installed, as it will might be released for the open beta first, followed by the stable release branch a few weeks later.

So... today I DL'd the latest version of the Beta, which appears to be: 2.5.2.17559.377

 

I then tried to install the Persian Gulf map, but it is requesting version: 2.5.1.16978.361

 

...does that mean that the Persian Gulf map does not work with the latest version of the Beta?

No there was an update to DCS World Open Beta this morning you need to grab first.

Update your DCS World Open Beta before trying to install the map.

Read carefully. That's actually what he did ;)

And that is pretty weird to be honest, as the map should only work with the new version (2.5.2.17559.377) :huh:

You can run DCS repair first. Maybe that helps.
