Is Free to Play active yet?

Looking at the module manager I only see options to Buy modules, not the ability to download for the 2 week period. Or is this only available if you are using Stable rather than OpenBeta?

Thanks @Dauntless I signed in at the DCS web site and under my account was able to hit the Trial button on the first aircraft I wanted to try, and when I next restarted DCS there it was.

So I was able to get a trial period for the F14 on the website. However, in-game it's not showing up. Let me know if you find a solution!

You will have to restart DCS and the module manager will inform you that you have a new module to download.

I have tried restarting the game. I run it in Steam. I have also tried to install different Beta versions of the game (open public vs 2.7 beta), which also didn't solve the issue. When I run the game, the F14 module is not among the modules on the bottom. And I get no notification that I could download it. In Steam it still shows as the original price.

 

This is probably an issue with the Steam version. I wonder if there is a work-around or I would need to download the non-Steam version of the game

the free-to-try offer is only for stand-alone, not steam.

Hi All,

I play on OB (not steam), I activated and installed JF-17 free to play. Module is fine activated in DCS Module menu. but when I try instant action or mission with JF-17, it's impossible to flight the plane. no cockpit access, only external view or map as IA.
I try to delete module and download an install again --> same result
I try to repair DCS --> same result 
 

someone has any idea ?
thanks by advance

I have a question how long will the F2P period last? Is it indefinite until you use up your 14 days, or is there some time limit on when you can activate it?

Might be your AV messing with the files. Try exluding DCS from scanning and try again to repair DCS or redownload the module.

Please continue in proper sub-forum:

After you enable the trial for the module in your profile the time starts for that module - after 14 days it will end for that module and you'll have to wait 6 months to try again that module. All modules are independent.

Tried my first F2P with the Mi24.  I own over a dozen modules but I thought I would test the system out.

 

I can fly the Hind in instant action, but no-go for multiplayer (even in a server that says F2P is allowed).

 

Any hints?  Thanks.

What does it mean? The game crashes? The server won't let you in? Do you have any pop up error message? Can you upload saved games\dcs\logs\dcs.log?

There is no difference between bought and free modules - the free one will just stop working after your free time is gone.
