DCS 2.5.2.20601 Open Beta

Post  Speed on Thu Aug 23, 2018 11:00 am

As Devil mentioned last week, Open Beta has been updated to version 2.5.2.20601.

I traded e-mail with SeaQuark yesterday and today and confirmed that the Korea! 1952 server will now be permanently updated to open beta. He mentioned that the only reason he might switch temporarily to Release is if a really bad open beta update slips through the cracks.

So, you can make up your own mind about the need to keep a copy of DCS Release in your PC. Frankly, if you need the space in your hard-drive for those nice pics of you and the kids at the beach, then un-install the Release version and save yourself the angst of having to keep two versions up to date. Since Devil helped to solve my Tacview control screen issues with Open Beta, I no longer have a need to maintain Release. So it's off to the recycle can for that.

version 2.5.2.20601 update is 248 MBs in size and includes:

DCS 2.5.2.20601 Update 9
