One more thing:

I understand that the price for FC3 will go up to $50 once 1.2.4 is released (since this will be the release version of FC3), so anybody on the fence should jump now.

Well I hope this fixes my Start up Issues with 1.2.3.. Shiny new pits cant wait till I hopefully can see them..

HF's in case you wondering I am unable to launch the new 1.2.3.. I goto start it and it errors out before the game even starts.. I am in contact with ED but they are have no idea what the problem is as they say they can NOT reproduce it???

They gave me an thing to try and rename the Updater.exe to Launcher.exe but that didnt work altho I got a little farther into the start of the game but I still get the same error.. 0xc000007b :(

Got the FC3 last month but haven't installed it yet. Wondered if I should wait on the installment until it's final?

If you already have it downloaded, install it now. When you auto-update to 1.2.4, FC3 will be auto-updated as well.

I just reinstalled FC2.. What planes are you guys mostly going to fly HF's??

I've been training Fightin' Fubijar on the F-15, and introduced him to F-pole and A-pole the other night. I fly anything in FC2 except for the Su-25/25T, both with which I stink up the joint.

Did you use the autoupdater or reinstall 1.2.3 from scratch?

Please don't neglect his F22 training. ;)

He does just fine with the F-22 on his own; I wanted to get him thinking about how to interpret and navigate with analog gauges. In particular, I had him doing HSI/CDI navigation, shoot an ILS approach, and perform a landing in the F-15. Then I had him doing BVR engagements with AMRAAM and Sparrow against a MiG-23.

Since it was a new install of windows, did you even get the prompt to enter your serial number when loading an aircraft other than the Su-25T?

Dang. Even I can get to the main menu on my laptop. I would uninstall 1.2.3 and remove the DCS World folder entirely. Back up your DCS folder in your Documents folder and then remove that as well (shouldn't matter, but this is baselining your testbed). Don't bother to deactivate your serial numbers if they are activated already.

In the absence of 1.2.4. on Monday I recommend reinstalling 1.2.3. Without the legacy folders in place, you should get a clean install. If you don't that points to another problem. Obviously, if 1.2.4 is released (which is what I expect), download and install this in lieu of using the autoupdater.
