The Backer Rewards Section is Finally Here – in Beta

27 likes
Well, it took way, way more blood and guts than anyone could ever imagine, but we finally have it.

If you’re a project backer, you can manage your rewards here: 

http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/personal/backer/ 

We also have a closed Backers forum here: 

http://forums.eagle.ru/forumdisplay.php?f=326 

This is currently in beta – feel free to play around with this as much as you like. 

Please note that this only shows the rewards from the rewards matrix. 

Anticipated problems

  • Log-in and email mix-ups;
  • Wrong reward selection;
  • Wrong tier selection;
  • Bad logic when selecting eclectic reward combinations.

Missing features: 

  • Not currently showing Completed Rewards for those of you who have already received your product keys;
  • Not showing non-matrix rewards for higher tier backers, such as custom aircraft paintschemes. 

Here’s how this works. 

Whether you backed on kickstarter or via paypal, you should be able to use this system. 

Please note that the DCS site requires two separate logins, one for the site, and the other for the forums. 

The Backer section is linked to the email address you used for your pledge. 

  • If you already have a digitalcombatsimulator.com account linked to that email, you should be able to log in and immediately use the Backer Rewards page. 
  • If you do not have a digitalcombatsimulator.com account linked to that email, please create one. It will give you access to all features on the site, including the Backer Rewards page. 
  • If you already have a digitalcombatsimulator.com account linked to a different email address, unfortunately we do not have an automated way to deal with that. Please email dcswwii@eagle.ru from the email address currently on your DCS profile (not the kickstarter backer email address) and let us know which email address you used to back the project. We’ll be changing the backer email address to your DCS account email address (not the other way around). 

Same goes for the forums. 

  • If you already have a forums.eagle.ru account, and it uses the same email you used to back the project, you should be able to log in and get access to the backer forum automatically. 
  • If you do not have a forums.eagle.ru account, create one with the same email you used to back the project, and you should get access to the backer forum. 
  • If you already have a forums.eagle.ru account, but it uses a different email address than the one you used to back the project, unfortunately we do not have an automated way to deal with that. Please email dcswwii@eagle.ru from the email address currently on your forum profile (not the kickstarter backer email address) and let us know which email address you used to back the project. We’ll be changing the backer email address to your forum account email address (not the other way around). 

Now, if you are using one email for the digitalcombatsimulator.com account and a different email for forums.eagle.ru, then unfortunately we won’t be able to link them. You’ll have to create a new account with a matching email address in one place or the other. 

We'll be adding the missing features in the next couple of days. Hopefully no serious issues will be found in beta, in which case we'll be going live ASAP.

For any issues, please post in the Backer Forum, or email dcswwii@eagle.ru.

      Hi when to start sending out the physical gifts?

    2. Creator TopFlyer on March 27, 2014

      Is there a time limit to choosing the rewards/perks/planes ?

    3. Creator Christopher Miner on March 26, 2014

      Worked great.

    4. Creator Donald Burnette on March 25, 2014

      I had emailed them yesterday evening that I could not access the Rewards site nor the Backer forum, turns out I had used a different email address here on Kickstarter, had a reply this evening and they got me all fixed up - thanks!

    5. Creator David Stubbs on March 25, 2014

      ..thank for suggestions guys...reset my password at DCS..now I have full access to backers forum and rewards :)

    6. Creator Fuck Eagle Dynamics on March 25, 2014

      DavidRed... change your DCS emails to your kickstarter email. That worked for me. Then I just changed them back after everything was changed over

    7. Creator DavidRed on March 25, 2014

      still no joy for me...

      different email on the forum than here or on digitalcombatsimulator.com....
      received an email after more than 12hours, and they told me to create a new account on the dcs forums...
      i did that, and now i dont get access to either the rewards nor the backers forum.
      i guess i have to wait another 12hours for an answer, which will probably not solve the problem...

      Илья, наверное не я один не в ладах с английским языком, хотелось бы прояснить следующие моменты на Backer наградах.
      Что такое "стратегия руководства", и "проект плакат"
      а также хотелось бы посмотреть, что из себя представляет майка.
      Спасибо!

    9. Creator Sputi on March 25, 2014

      splendid, works perfect thanks!
      @ Igor and Dave: do you have the same email adress for your eagle dynamics account as for the kickstarter? If yes it should work

      “If you already have a forums.eagle.ru account, and it uses the same email you used to back the project, you should be able to log in and get access to the backer forum automatically. “

      If it doesnt work I dont know why... :/

    10. Creator David Stubbs on March 25, 2014

      @Igor K..same for me, rewards page is fine but can't access backers forum

    11. Creator jambowacca on March 24, 2014

      Anyone else not able to access the backer only forum? It says I don't have permission to access the page. The rewards page page worked fine for me though.

    12. Creator Greg Appleyard on March 24, 2014

      Worked for me. Slick. Thanks!

    13. Creator Donald Burnette on March 24, 2014

      Says I am not a backer, great...

    14. Creator Stefan Jansen on March 24, 2014

      Yeah! Great! Thank you Ilya!
      When comes the Dora? It seems that nobody knows, ha?!
      "plus a digital copy of DCS World FW-190D-9 with beta access
      (when available in early 2014)." ;-)

    15. Creator Christoph N on March 24, 2014

      Thanks, worked perfectly, keep it up!

    16. Creator Håkan Jarnvall on March 24, 2014

      Excellent,
      One Q, if I dont want to use all rewards, can I leave them blank?

    17. Creator MACADEMIC on March 24, 2014

      Thank you. Now that I was able to select the DCS World P-51D as extra, which shows as 'accepted' - how do I get it? It's currently not showing anywhere on the website or store.

    18. Creator YMC91 on March 24, 2014

      Ilya,

      When will I get my backer's t-shirt?

      Many thanks
