But for the moment, I'd love an answer for the topic! Both BS2 and A10 were 126.96.36.199. for me so I've just uninstalled both (I have the instal files still) and am currentlygrabbing DCS World. Had no idea it was such a big file with such a poor DL speed!
Yes, DCS world has become the new base install an it's free and comes with a free single player plane the Su25T ported from FC2.Disco LT wrote:So DCS World is the base install, that I assume is free, to which you attach your P051, or A-10 etc? I always thought A-10 was the base game, and then the others were expansions but I gather I was wrong
BS2 is an improved version of the original and is compatible with a-10c and the other new modules from DCS; and no the black shark on steam is the original and doesn't work with DCS world. You would need to buy the black shark 2 upgrade from DCS for it to work in World. That would save you $15 though from the full price for BS2 which is $40 as the BS2 upgrade is only $20; that's how v4moose bought BS2.InAUGral wrote:I have DCS World setup with DCS:A10C atm and I noticed today that Black Shark is $5 on steam. If I buy the steam version of Black shark for $5 can I use that to download the DCS World module? I know it says above that you need to "upgrade" but what does this mean exactly?

you need the update package - it works with the steam version of bs1. if you download the full package your key won't work. this is the exact little 'glitch' i ran into, cause it sounds illogical, but the upgrade version seems to be the full data package, but just checks your steam install and accepts the upgrade key
hope that made sense :/

you possibly don't need to just install bs1 before you activate bs2 upgrade.DarkMellie wrote:Any ideas how I would uninstall the BS2 upgrade I installed last night?

yes that's how I installed the upgrade; and keep bs1 installed as each new version of bs2 you'll have the same issue.you possibly don't need to just install bs1 before you activate bs2 upgrade.DarkMellie wrote:Any ideas how I would uninstall the BS2 upgrade I installed last night?
