New rig - transferring modules


Recommended Posts

I'm about to purchase a new rig which will be dedicated to DCS.

 

It will have a new Windows OS on one M.2 NVMe and I'm planning to install DCS on its own NVMe, it will be a complete rebuild.

 

How do I go about trasnferring all of my purchased modules/licences ?

 

Is it just a case of disabling/uninstalling them from my current rig first, then signing into my account in my new rig and downloading/installing again ?

 

All my purchases are for the standalone version.

 

Presumably I can also copy my Save Games\DCS folder across ? and I understand I may have to restore my controller settings from backups.

Yes. Just install DCS on the new computer and log into your DCS account. Just remember to close DCS on the old one.
Copy saved games over, easy as that.
Controls little more cumbersome. Copy over the input folder, and rename the files with the new ID. A little work, but worth the effort.
Cheers!

ah, right, so allow DCS to create an input folder/aircraft sub folders then replace the controller files it creates with my copies, using the new names, makes sence.

 

All good news, many thanks.

So if you just switch to a new mobo/cpu, you still have to uninstall DCS, and re-download from scratch? You can’t simply log off before doing the swap, then re-login after?

 

Why re-download? ... just logoff, do the swap and logon after. However, you may need to check the Config/Input hotas files, as your USB IDs will change with the new motherboard.

If you are making hardware changes it is best to logout, then make your upgrades. Also ensure you are not in off line mode.

 

Restart DCS login and you will be good to go. 

 

if you are on a new pc and dont intend to use the old one, it is best to logout of the old one, then login on the new one and continue. 

 

any problems contact support directly and we will assist you

 

thanks
