21/0331 - Update procedure for DCS World v2.5.6.61527
 

### 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 the following Mods:

Disable these Mods:

  • SG-C-130J Hercules
  • SG-Skin F-14 VR Friendly Cockpit
  • SG-Warships

 

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

  • DCSW-UH-1H Minigun Upgrade (We will be releasing a new version at a later date)
  • SG-Skin F-14 VR Friendly Cockpit (Heatblur refuses to fix the custom cockpit option, so this mod is now obsolete)

 

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.

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 four Updates are available (orange arrows), and one NEW mod (grey arrow). Download the Updated Mods now:

  • DCSW-F-14 VR Friendly Cockpit  2.2.0  (A new mod that must overwrite game folder files now, becuase… well it’s Heatblur’s fault)
  • DCSW-Improved FX  21.3.31
  • DCSW-USS Wasp  1.0.2
  • SG-C-130J Hercules  6.6.0
  • SG-Warships  1.6.0

 

9) Confirm the “Saved Games DCS” configuration is selected, then ENABLE the SG-C-130J Hercules and SG-Warships mods

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 load up an Instant Action in the Syria map, as the first time it loads will take awhile, as new shaders are created.  Afterwards, the sim will load much faster. Repeat for other maps as needed.

 

### Perform SRS Auto Update to 1.9.5.0 ###

1) Launch SRS and answer “Yes” to the Update Prompt.

2) Answer “No” when prompted to make any changes to your default location, to perform the Auto Update

 

IMPORTANT: To avoid sync issues between clients or complications during missions, EVERY pilot should have ALL 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.
