20/1016 - Update procedure for DCS World v2.5.6.55960
 

### 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 EVERY mod that begins with “DCSW-“, then click the “Disable selected” button.

3) Switch over to your “Saved Games DCS” configuration, then locate and Disable ONLY these 4 Mods.

  • SG-Edge 540 Package (optional mod)
  • SG-Flight Deck Equipment
  • SG-Mobile TACAN
  • SG-Warships

 

4) DELETE the following Mods from your OvGME list . (tip: Right click on the mod to delete). Note: These Mods are no longer compatible or have been replaced.

  • SG-Light Projector (you may have already disabled and deleted this one, but check just the same)
  • SG-Mobile TACAN

 

5) Clear your shader cache. DELETE the “metashaders2” folder located within “.\Saved Games\DCS\” 

6) 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.

  • Note: You may see this new screen pop-up shortly after clicking Update Now. This is a new feature of the updater.  Typically you should just press the “Delete” button.

7) Once the update has completed successfully, acknowledge the Success prompt and Exit out of the sim.

8) Return to OvGME, then from the top menu select “Mods” > “Repositories” > “Query…”. You’ll notice six Updates are available (orange arrows). Download the Updated Mods now:

  • DCSW-AV-8B Advanced Bindings   1.7.1  (optional mod)
  • DCSW-F-14 LANTRIN for Pilot   1.2.1
  • DCSW-Takeoff from Ground   1.1.0
  • SG-Edge 540 Package 1.1.0 (optional mod, and LARGE.  You can defer this till later)
  • SG-Flight Deck Equipment 1.1.0
  • SG-Warships 1.5.0

 

9) Confirm the “Saved Games DCS” configuration is still selected, then ENABLE the mods that begin with “SG-“, that were just downloaded.

10) Switch over to the “DCS World” configuration, select ALL the mods that begin with “DCSW-” and click the “Enable selected” button. 

11) Launch DCS World and go to your Module Manager to download the “Syria Map”, along with any other modules you may have recently purchased. 

NOTE: You should load up an Instant Action in the new Syria map, as the first time it loads will take awhile, as new shaders are created.  Afterwards, you can repeat the same for the Persian Gulf and Caucuses maps if you wish.  The sim will load much faster when you fly in those maps.

 

IMPORTANT: To avoid sync issues between clients or complications during missions, EVERY pilot should have ALL THE REQUIRED Mods ENABLED Please compare your list in OvGME to THIS SHEET of current Squadron Mods, and their Status.

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