19/1127 - Update procedure for DCS World v2.5.5.39384

### Update Instructions ###

1) Launch OvGME and confirm the “DCS World” configuration is selected from the drop-down list to the right of the logo.

2) Select ALL the mods that begin with “DCSW-“, then click the “Disable selected” button.

3) If you still have the “DCSW-Vietnam Content Mod” in your list of mods, go ahead and DELETE it.  This mod is currently not in use.

4) Clear your shader cache. Delete the folders “fxo” and “metashaders2” located within “.\Saved Games\DCS\” 

5) UPDATE to the latest version of DCS World by launching the sim and acknowledging the prompt to “Update Now”, or by running the “Update DCS World” shortcut.

6) Once the update has completed successfully, acknowledge the Success prompt.

7) Exit out of the sim.

8) Return to OvGME, then select ALL the mods that begin with “DCSW-” and click the “Enable selected” button.

9) Launch DCS World and load up any Instant Action in the Caucasus map.  This will take awhile to load, as new shaders are created.  Afterwards, repeat the same for the Nevada and then Persian Gulf maps.  The sim will load much faster now when you fly.

IMPORTANT: To avoid potential sync issues between clients or complications during mission design, pilots should have ALL squadron approved Mods ENABLED, even if a mission does not use them. Unused Mods in a mission remain dormant, and should have no impact.

NOTE: If you are unsure you have all the latest versions of our squadron mods, simply Query the Repository to find out.  You should see Green Check marks for all Mods.  If you are missing one, or have the wrong version, you’ll see it, and can download and enable it under the appropriate configuration. 

If you encounter any issues, please contact the CO or Readiness immediately.
