I playing long time in Il2 and DCG but for some time any campaign I run ends after about 2-3 missions. I done see why. It says something like "Soviet forces have retreated from the sector. The campaign has ended" .All options are the same that was. Ends even campaigns that I finished many times with a lot of missions.Maximum troop number is 10000.

in fact here is dcg ini

Good question.  I've patched IL-2 to the latest patch and I haven't had any issues.  You might want to uninstall DCG and reinstall it.  Something may have been lost when you patched IL-2.

I already did it. Many times! This bag firstly appeared on 3.47. I didnt use 3.48 betas, And some days ago I install new last 3.48. This issue now happens EVERYTIME INN EVERY COMPANY.

When I begin new campaign when I finishes new mission imidiately after it begins everything is ok, there is new generated mission next and so on. But if I flew it normally, and there will be any events, planes fighting, destroyed columns, it always ends in that way!

I found an old 3.47, actually seems it is the very early beta 3.48, it works fine, without any problem! Then i install beta of 3.49- it dont work properly again! Again when i flew the first mission and some fights happen it says that one side was ouf from map and so on! Old version of DCG works fine, but new are bugged, new from 3.48 and next!

On 3.49 i tryed this trick, i began a new campaign but i didnt check "off-line carrier" on, but when i exited a mission, i minimized the game, run dcg and pressed "generate mission" manually. then i closed dcg and returnes to the game and began a new mission. May be this way will be better, but i now tired to clarify this, i'm sick of a permanent creation and deleting new campaigns without any result. :angry:

The bug seems to be on your end because no one else has reported this issue with any recent version.  Is it possible when you installed 3.48 or 3.49, the subfolders didn't install with it?

 

Frankly, I can't think of any reason for what you're having happen, sorry.

Oh, you really helped me, you absolutely wasnt curious about what i did, you didnt ask any files from me, nothing. You just said me that this is my fault and this is my problem. THANK YOU!

What can i do wrong, it is just if run new dcg it ended after first mission, and when run old dcg it works absolutely normally, as it was in last. THAT'S ALL!

Both the times i just unpack folders, then selectin where game is. What can i do wrong if i had did it before a lot of times? If i so stupid that i cannot unpack an archive why it works with old ones? I installed new version, i'm deleting old campaings from ru, de and other campaigns folder. I check option so and so, in this way, and that way, and all result is after I am sitting staring in a monitor loosing 20 or 30 minutes of my life i get the scoffing message " forces blablabla the war ended hahaha". I even tryed to do so: i installed an old woked version, played it, made sure all is ok. then i took all files from the new unworked version and copied them over the good ones. i didnt take new folder, just pasted them over there to save the path. And- voila- it dont work now ahahah! and for sure the bug is on my end!

the points is:

1. i'm stupid and i cant install new dcg, but somehow old version (that i founded in my reserves) works OK, my stupidity probably doesnt influence on them.

2. If i end mission quckly after it launched THE CAMPAING CONTINUES AND NEW MISSION GENERATES! Campain ends prematurely if missions last a period enough some events occur.

 

here is that last working version

https://mega.nz/#!Vg...vJcxo5PvZgkVTL0

all that was newer- doesnt work normally. it was saved by me just in this form as in the archive. I unpacked it, deleted old campaigns, launched new- and all is fine!

I've downloaded it.

It seems that the last time you run a mission was in january 2015, the 10th (Kyushu45_JA).

Are you sure that all works fine now (07/16/16)?

Check your "G:\GAMES\IL-2 Complete Edition\" folder for a dcg.ini file.  If it's in there, delete it.  Then delete the one in your DCG folder. 

 

Generate a new campaign using the DGen Replacement mode using these steps:

 

1. Run DCG and select the path of your game, for example: "G:\GAMES\IL-2 Complete Edition\"
2. Select the "Off-Line Career Auto-Generation" mode from the DCG Menu "Mode".
3. Select "Replace Career Generator (DGen)" from the DCG Menu "Mode" and click "Yes". Close DCG.
4. Run IL-2 "Forgotten Battles" and select "Pilot Career".
5. Select any of the stock or DCG campaigns available that is designated "*" and "(DCG)".
6. Play the campaign...

Did you read that i have wrote above?

"it was saved by me just in this form as in the archive. I unpacked it, deleted old campaigns, launched new- and all is fine!"

Do you understand? Some months ago, I downloaded a beta from this forum. I run it, made sure that is working. After i played some campaingns i took this folder from my pc, packed it and saved on a dvd. I dont remember why i didnt save an original archive from this site, maybe i have it somwhere but now i found this one. And now I unpacked it, DELETED OLD "a mission was in january 2015, the 10th (Kyushu45_JA)" I DELETED IT AND BEGINNING NEW!!!!

 a dcg.ini file. 

I forgot to say, when i had tried to make a new installation of DCG i deleted it. Useless. I do in a such way. I deleted an old dcg folder comepletely, nothing left, in IL2 folder i deleted all dcg folders that keeps in Missions\Campaign\RU and DE and all anothers, and deleted dcg.ini in the main game folder. I would delete anything else, but i dont know what. Maybe something in the register? I dont know. I tried many times. again and again and again again again again.

I didnt use usually "Auto-Generation" mode", OK i will try it. I think i will test one more thing, i will take that release that working and will copypaste files from 3,48 partially and will look which displacement will make the failure. it just requires times, i already dont do anything but this ... :wacko:

and one more thing, i have two os on my pc, xp as reserve and win7x64. The issue happens in both places. Absolutely identical.

I recommend you try auto-generation mode.  The only reason I haven't disabled the manual way for off-line campaigns is for users of the original IL-2 game (if any are still out there).

Man, But I used EXACTLY auto-generation mode. I thought this was obvious... Just when i use Auto-generation mode a campaign ends after one battle...this is my fault, I didnt explain it. Only manual way works as I need!

But I do wrote abot it here... http://forum.jg1.org...rly/#entry23390

here it was

Spoiler

 

Ok. look.

I have made some test today and yesterday.

1. "Full Off-Line Career Mode." This is when we are replacing stock generator. It works fine. Without any problem. Absolutely. But to be honest this isnt my choice.I'm not satisfied with I cannot set up every options in the campaign as I need. Too simple.

 

2. "Manual Mission Generation Mode". This is when

Spoiler

It works too, at least about 4 or 5 missions. It works, but it is inconveniently a bit, alt-tab and so on. BUT IT WORKS FINE TOO.

 

3. Off-Line Career Mode. this is when

Spoiler

THIS IS THE ISSUE! This is when any campaign I run ends after about 2-3 missions!

Well, I made an experiment in this mode. I installed that working 3.47. Then I copypasted two folders from 3.48, data and masters (of course with their subfolders). Then I began a new campaign. It ran absolutely normally. Without any problem.

Then I closed il2, and copypasted the new EXE file from 3.48. Then I launched the game, and continued what I had began. And took a mission and finished it.

Man, believe it or not but it showed "Soviet forces have retreated from the sector. The campaign has ended." AGAIN. I understand that you dont want to hear it, you think that I'm harrasing you with silly things and bothering you. But this is the fact, the problem is the new exe...

Well, as you dont trust me and as I understand there will be no fix for my bug I beg you for one thing- please dont disable the manual way for off-line campaigns as you are going. This will be the end for me...

What is the advantage of manual mode?  If you want to tweak campaign settings before the next mission is generated using the auto-generation mode, you can ALT+TAB out of the game when it's on the debrief screen, run DCG, make all the changes you want in DCG, close DCG, then go back into the game and continue.

 

I do a lot of testing in manual mode myself and I haven't encountered the issue you're having.  The weird thing is, as far as generating missions, there's absolutely no difference between the two.  They use exactly the same code; just triggered in a different way. 

I'll try running some campaigns in manual mode and see if I can get similar results.

Man, PLEASE don't take it personally. This simulator is one of the few games Istill playing, and your campaing generator was the best, much much better that the default one. I just wish it works properly but it doesnt on my pc, I have no idea why. It looks like when I'm spendid time in a mission more or less long, the game "forget" something...

I went so far as to make a video and load it to youtube ;)

https://www.youtube....h?v=g3QoEiyHwIs

Most of the video is a routne, what intertsing is only the  start and the end. No exterior programs, only the game and the video recorder. The campaign is new, my plane controlled by an autopilot. And it is in autogeneration mode of course. And this is the absolutely typical end...

Hi again. Can you copy the following files here from the Riga campaign folder?  I need to see them before the first mission and then after the first mission (so you'll have to generate them again from the start and then play one mission).

 

campaign.ini

campaign.dcg

territory.dcg

 

Also, I just need this one from after the mission is completed, but before you exit the debriefing screen:

 

log.dcg

 

Thanks!
