With all the IL-2 websites and their support that has fallen by the wayside in the last 5 years your continued support of this program is greatly appreciated.

Beta 11 adds location to the briefing's "Other News" for planes that were shot down or that crashed.

Latest beta integrates the [Mods] section of the mission.  If a [Mods] section is added to the template mission, it will get imported into the campaign.  Alternatively, a user can create a mds.dcg file in their campaign folder for use.

 

Also added the Semovente 75/18 to the ground unit data.

Edit: removed attachment.

Latest beta (lucky 13) tweaks how human and AI squadrons work in MDS mode.  Now if you set a squadron to "Human Only", it should not spawn AI planes.

 

Also added ability for a user to create a de_names.dat file to replace the default German pilot names.  For details, see:

Many thanks for the new beta :)

 

Is it now possible to have a [Mods] Section in the mis-files as discussed here:

Yes it was, sorry for not paying attention  :(

I've updated from beta 12 only replaced the il2dcg.exe with the one from beta 13.
Then I created a de_names.dat with 53 names just for test purposes and I placed it in the IL2DCG\Data\dgen folder since all other dat files are there.
Is that how it's intended?

I started a new DCG campaign but the names in pilot.dcg are not from the de_names.dat.
If there is a de_names.dat then only names from there should be used?

How is the de_names.dat supposed make the German letters display correctly?

What I tried was to use the IL-2 codes for those special letters:
ä        \u00E4
ü        \u00FC
ö        \u00F6
å        \u00E5

 

I also made another de_names.dat with ordinary umlaut letters, but it was not read either.

 

My test files is attached.

DCG manages the de_names.dat file only since the 3.49b13 version.

So update and follow the rule: more than 100 names.

Did you try using the letters (ä, ü, ö, å) and not the codes?  The codes should work in the game messages, but I'm not sure they will display properly in DCG itself.

Oups.

I read vonOben's post to much quickly.

 

For me, Günther, is correctly displayed, using DCG 4.13b09 and a de_names.dat file of 500 names.

500 aces of Luftwaffe sorted by kills ( decreasing score, so Erich Hartmann is the first one )

 

https://fr.wikipedia...de_la_Luftwaffe

 

Try it.

Thanks idefix

 

I tried your file and placed it in the IL2DCG\Data\dgen folder, and started a new DCG campaign but I still get names from the exe and not from the de_names.dat file :(

 

Have I placed the file in the correct place?

 

If I've placed the file in the correct place and I'm using the beta 13 I can't figure out why it's not working in my end, any ideas please?  :unsure:

 

As I wrote earlier I only replaced the exe file since I couldn't detect any other upgraded files in the zip-file.

 

Best regards
