Help!

Before there was DCS World and the added Black Shark 2 game content, Eagle Dynamics did offer a CD and I hope download version of Black Shark 2 that operated independent of the World module. Like DCS A10, it was offered as a standalone product.

I have lost my CD and am trying to obtain another. Amazon does show several Black Shark 2 as available, but I believe that are miss identified Black Shark 1.

Any guidance to a source would be sincerely appreciated.

Can you not download off the ED website?

You've registered your key to your ED account so you should be able to download the installer, I think.

The download from the Eagle Dynamics site is not the problem. The product, however, will only install to a DCS World installation. No independent setups are permitted as were once possible. I did ask ED tech support and they flatly state that no CD or independent download exists.

It once did. So, I will have to tear apart my house in the quest for the lost CD.

I had to look up if BS2 was even ever a standalone product prior to being a DCSW module. The world wonders why the enthusiasm to acquire the old version? Why not use DCSW+BS2 at the current 1.52 version number?

Sounds like we're talking about the original BlackShark download (BS1)....if so, that's not going to work anymore, or if it does install from a CD there will obviously be no further updates or patches available for the environment.

That original BS download was discontinued and users had to purchase either the update to BS2 or the BS2 module didn't they?

There is a DCS-A10 and BS stand alone. They were before DCS world. No BS2 because that was after DCS world and it was an "upgrade" to the original BS. I looked at my original BS game box and it says it requires internet activation so I am not sure if DCS will not activate it without DCS world.
