Yeah, I don't know what happened but the links between the campaigns all vanished (or were never there).  Try adding the following to your endcampaign.dcg file:

[CoralSea]
  Campaign=Pacific_Campaign
  Sunk=CV 20%
  Victor=Red
[CoralSea]
  Campaign=Pacific_Campaign
  Sunk=CV 20%
  Victor=Blue

Ok, I'll try it out next time.  Btw, where do I see the links between campaigns?  Is it the allcampaign.dcg or grandcampaign.dcg?

This is the only thing I saw in grandcampaign about Tulagi

 

[Tulagi to CoralSea] Blue

  Campaign=Pacific_Campaign
  Map=CoralSea
  Front=Coral_Sea_
  DeHome=Rabaul_Airfield
  RuHome=Townsville_Airfield
  DeBase=Rabaul_Airfield
  RuBase=Townsville_Airfield
 

Possible to duplicate it for Red?

Yes, but it will give control of most of the map to the Japanese.

Coral sea works fine now.  I am testing Midway and Santa Cruz next.  I know Tarawa works fine now.

Some additional questions:

 

1. It seems a lot of endcampaign entries are missing for pacific campaign.  For instance, SantaCruz, Marianas etc.  So are there any hidden conditions that are not in endcampaign file?  I saw some maps have capturing a specific point as victory condition.  Is it determined by the entry like this:

 

EndLocation=Polangen_Airfield

 

2.

 

[CoralSea to Midway] Red

  Campaign=Pacific_Campaign
  Map=Midway
  StartDate=03/06/1942
  BugOutRadius=1
  Front=Midway
  DeHome=Rabaul
  RuHome=Midway_Airfield
  DeBase=Rabaul_Airfield
  RuBase=Midway_Airfield
  Locale1=Eastern_Island
  Locale2=Kure_Atoll
  Locale3=Kure

 Would "StartDate=03/06/1942" force the next campaign start on the date specified?  For instance, I finished the coral sea map on 10/05/1942.  Instead of starting midway on 11/05/1942, the battle would start on 03/06/1942?

Nope, if you pass the start date of the next campaign, DCG treats it as if the current campaign has stalled and the next campaign is delayed.  If you want to set an end date as the reason for ending (like the start date of a new campaign), you can do that in the endcampaign.dcg file.

1. But what happens if I win the first map before the start date of the 2nd map?  Say Coral sea's victory condition is sink 50% of opposing CV.  I did that on the 1st mission which is 7/5/1942.  If I set the start date for the next map, midway on 5/6/1942, then would my midway campaign start on 6/5/1942 or 8/5/1942?

 

2. So in order to end a campaign, I must have an entry in endcampaign.dcg right?

A typo in my last post.  For number 1, I meant to ask would my midway campaign start on 5/6/1942 or 8/5/1942.

1.  If your campaign ends early, the next one will start early.  It might be overridden by the option "Fixed Start Dates/Squadrons".  It's sad that my documentation doesn't have exactly what this option does and I don't remember off the top of my head.

 

2. If there is no entry in the endcampaign.dcg file, the campaign will end if either side's supply zone is captured/contested or it has no air bases left.

I see.  I remember in old version, the grandcampaign was able to religiously observe the historical start date of each sub-campaign if the prior campaign was complete on time or ahead of the schedule.

Try checking the "Fixed Start Dates/Squadrons" and see if it works.  (And let me know if it does.)
