Our DCS Server

Recommended Posts

Our DCS Server is up and running.

In a Beta form still, stay tuned here for the latest news on it.

- Runs the latest-1 version of Fenrir's 'DD_All Planes Jet Practise' mission, and it does so... endlessly at the moment. So, in the end, ships will reach the harbor, it will turn dark, it will hang itself probably. Ie. there's no automatic restart yet...

- A4 is in the mission, but only on ground start, so it will go BOOM!

Very nice FT.  Thank you kindly.  I will watch the fireworks that were previously A-4s.  Who's bringing the marshmallows?

Whats the server called FT?  I can't seem to see anything like it in the server list....

Also, I've downloaded the A4 mod but haven't installed it yet.  Could that be the problem? 

My game was updated last night so I could fly the Mig19. My game says it's on version 2.5.4.28090. Open beta.

And,  mission/server should restart every 12 hours now. 

One issue still is that I have to manually un-pause it at start. Haven't found a fix for that yet... The 'documented'  ["pause_on_load"] = false, is serversettings.lua does not really work...

Er...ah. I see.  So, er....confused.

  'Stable' and 'Open Beta',  does this mean I'm up the creek as per our server?  Not too sure what the difference is and is it possible to access the 'stable' version?

Arthur, there are two versions of DCS available.  The 'stable' version is currently 2.5.4.27430, which was the previous Beta version number.  The current Beta number is 2.5.4.28090.  Version number is displayed on the main screen in the lower right corner.  If you run both, you'll need two totally separate installs of DCS on your machine, and two execute files, of course.  I have both installed on my storage drive, one under 'E\DCS World' (the Beta) and one under 'E\DCS 2.5 STABLE' (the stable version).  Both have their own individual .exe files inside their separate game folders.

The beta is the "development" version, implementing new things for testing by the community to look for faults.  It's also a nice way to get a head start on new features, but most of us, including myself, run the stable version almost exclusively.

Here's the link to the download page.  Note the three different versions. 2.5 Stable. 2.5 Beta. 1.5 ("Legacy").  The top one, 2.5 Stable, is the one being currently run on the Dogz server.

I see.  Thanks Kira, understood.  I'm a bit reluctant to download another version of DCS so if I wait for my present beta to become the stable version I should be good to go on the DD server?

Arthur, that's a big "maybe".  Generally, the Beta becomes the Stable number at some point, at which the old Beta number becomes the Stable number and a new number becomes the Beta.  It's a vicious repeating cycle.  The only real reason for installing Beta is for early access to new features.  Give it about two weeks (or so, depending), and it should update.

Two weeks?  Thats probably a good thing.  I think it's going to take me that long to figure out how to launch missiles from my Mig 19!
