FC3 planes are suddenly borked


Recommended Posts

I've owned the Flaming Cliffs module for more than eight years.  Today when I logged in I was suddenly informed that the A-10A, F-15C, other FC planes were disabled because of a lack of serial number.  I re-bound the serial number but it keeps happening every time I try to log in.  I also discovered that several of the other modules I own, like the A-10C II, needed to be re-downloaded.  What''s going on?  I made no changes at all to my computer, hard drive, game installation, or anything else.   Anyone have any idea why this is abruptly happening??

  • franx changed the title to FC3 planes are suddenly borked

yeh i had the same thing, look in the modules bit of DCS where its says a10-1 for dcs  delete those ones and the flaming cliffs planes will still be there in instant action under flaming cliffs like they were before.

it appears that during that free play period we just had it installed the non FC3 versions of the planes and thats whats screwing it up, hope that helps you it worded here.

You must've accidentally downloaded the individual modules as part of the free trial period, these are separate to FC3, despite FC3 containing each of them; you don't have serial licenses for those, but you still have full access to them all regardless because you own FC3. The individual FC3 modules are just there presumably so that people could purchase specific aircraft if they didn't want the pack.

 

All you need to do is fire up DCS, skip through the license warnings, go into the module manager, and uninstall the individual modules but leave FC3 installed (again, they are separate from FC3, you can do this without losing the capability to fly them). If you install the individual modules that come with FC3 over the top of FC3, then all you've done is install the same thing twice.

Modules I own: F-14A/B, F/A-18C, Supercarrier, F-16CM, AJS-37, F-5E-3, MiG-21bis, Ka-50, A-10C (+ A-10C II), UH-1H, Mi-8MTV2, P-47D, P-51D, FC3, MiG-15bis, Yak-52, CA, C-101, Hawk

Terrains I own: Syria, The Channel, SoH

This is a problem that should not exists in the first place. If you own FC3, they are still offered as individual downloads which should not happen. It's messy, exists already quite a few years and this is something ED should fix.

Yep you have to go through & delete ONE AT A TIME 😟 all of the modules that you downloaded in the try for free period. You have to go into the module manager hit the delete button then DCS will restart. Then repeat the process for every single one. ☹️
