Ive tried to read up on as much of this as I could. I got weird results when trying it.
I have all of my campaigns.. tons of them.. from IL2 4.09 and HSFX 4.1... using DCG 3.44 on a COOP DSC server.
Ive finally gotten around to updating a test install to 4.12.2 and hsfx 7
Im rusty of course..but Ive done nearly 100 NGen DCG campaigns.
So I wanted to update them for use in HSFX 7
I went through all the new aircraft / payloads... ground units. added them to the Gunits , class, allpayloads file.
removed what aircraft were removed in the newer versions.
so my first attempt was an italy campaign... some of the squadrons that worked in the older versions...
didnt this time :
those got treated as allied squadrons and aircraft were placed on the wrong side of the front. it wouldnt let you fly the mission but I could go in and look at it.
but I noticed there was some problems with squadron ID's in the forum so I decided to just do a very simple mission.
I took all the aircraft out and just left one allied flight and one axis flight. made it a generic german squadron so there would be no issues.
got nothing but "front has been lost" errors
tried another one of my campaigns, a very simple africa 41 on the sands of time map.
same thing. front has been lost
log file looks something like this :

I can go to my 4.09/hsfx 4/dcg 3.44 and generate these just fine.
Im a bit stumped
im assuming something has changed that, in my attempt to read back and see.. that Ive missed something?
It does the same thing when I disable HSFX and run it as a stock 4.12.2
