Important 1.5.6/2.0.5 Patching, Regarding StarForce

Dear users,

At the end of this week (on Friday 07. April) all 3 available DCS versions will be updated. Among other things, these updates contain the MiG-21Bis StarForce patch.

We recommend some minimal actions on your side to prepare for the patch.

Please check which of following procedures describes your DCS installation:

  1. You have only one DCS version.
  2. You have two DCS versions.
  3. You have three DCS versions.
  4. Read this if you missed this notice or you are unable to take actions before the patch is released.
  5. Download LNS_DCS_MiG-21Bis_Registry_Delete.rar

Note that once again, we provided two additional activations per key, for all users.

1.  You have only one DCS version.

If you happen to have DCS openBeta (v. 1.5.6.3690 or higher) and you previously applied the MiG-21Bis MARCH patch, and are using MiG-21Bis only in open Beta, you don’t need to do anything.

In other cases, do the following:

– Please deactivate the MiG-21Bis module DRM (DCS -> Login -> Module manager -> Installed modules -> MiG-21 -> click on DRM icon, follow procedure),

– If you are unable to deactivate DRM, ignore it and proceed,

– Tto allow the patch to be applied, please make sure the MiG-21Bis module is checked in DCS Module manager,

– Please clean the registry using the provided “Mig-21_delete_activation_data.reg” file (double click, confirm),

The patch will enable the MiG-21Bis in both DCSs that you have.
