tranfer PG terrain from OB to Stable folder?


Recommended Posts

hello

 

i have 2 copies of DCS ,one for stable version and the other is for latest beta.

 

i purchased pursian gulf map and dowloaded it to the OB version , now i want to transfer it to the stable version folder without downloading it again since my internet is capped.

 

i tried copy paste it from the OB folder to the Stable version one but it doesnt work ,

 

how can i do that properly if its possible?

As far as I'm aware if you open your DCS stable version and go to the module manager it should ask you if you want to install the PG map. If you select yes the installer will search your PC for any other installs you have ie the Beta and copy it over from there.

 

That's how it's happened to me in the past anyway.

System :-

i7-7820X, ASUS ROG Strix X229, 32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3600MHz, 11GB Nvidia Geforce 1080Ti, 1x 500GB Samsung 850 EVO, 1x 1TB Samsung 850 EVO, 1x 500GB Samsung 960 EVO M.2, Windows 10. VPC WarBRD Base with HOTAS Warthog Stick and Throttle, Saitek combat rudder pedals, Oculus Rift S.

You have to add

"PERSIANGULF_terrain",

in the autoupdate.cfg in your DCS folder.

exactly how i wrote it above with " and ,

somewhere between the other modules.

Maybe it even doesn't work after doing that, because of different DCS versions (2.5.5 stable vs 2.5.6 open beta). Then do "repair DCS"

just use your module manager to install the terrain, the updater will look for other versions of DCS and use them.

Given their Path's are properly set up in the registry (which is done once by the installer).
