FLOLS Overlay - Not showing


Go to solution Solved by TimRobertsen,

Recommended Posts

After the 2.7 update the overlay stopped showing up.

I've tried unchecking and checking the box in options, but it's gone.

In the posts I've read it seems that it shows up sporadicly, regardless of whether the options-box is checked, but for me it simply doesn't show up.

 

Does anyone know if there is a workaround/what might be causing this?

have you tried repair? i had the jhmcs disappearing occasionally (before 2.7) -fast repair always brought it back 😁

This could be a stupid question, but what is repair? 😛 And how do I do it?

not at all 😃 you can use the win search bar or look into your dcs launch folder. there should be a shortcut called DCS REPAIR. then you have several options. i'd recommend the FAST option first. dont think i ever needed the other ones...

let me know, if it works.

Hmm I can't seem to find the shortcut, anywhere 😬

I think you have to run it thru a command prompt...not thru power shell. while in powershell do a cmd command then the dcs_updater repair

Hmm, i probably did something wrong 

 

I got this:

 

 

 

 

I haven't found a way to just open Command Window.

Try and use the DCSWorld root folder and manually add in 'bin\dcs_updater.exe repair'

Try using DCS updater utility. Handy tool.

 

 

 

After setting it up, for some reason, I can't click the "Repair"-button.

Launch, VR On, VR Off, Ded Server Mode, Modelviewer and Clean are available, but not "Update" and "Repair"

My file structure will be different, but doing it like this didn't work? That's odd.

Maybe Steam doesn't like doing it manually: Right-click DCS World in your Library, go to Properties, Local Files, select Verify integrity of game files.

Ah, so that didn't work either. Too bad. Are you sure you pointed the tool to the correct install directory?

I'll try that 🙂

Jupp, I followed the instructions. The program recognized the different modules and tech, but wouldn't allow repair and update.

Does DCS and DCS beta have different folders?
