So far I'm able to adjust premade DCG campaigns. Adding planes, vehicles, interesting places, ...

Now I wanted to make a entirely new campaign for the Tobruk campaign that comes with Il-2 4.13. I've followed Lonestar's 'How to make a 3rd party DCG campaign from scratch!'.

Unfortunatly my Il-2 install doesn't even recognise that there is a campaign generated (Which I did of course).

 

Where have I gone wrong?

You can find my 3rd party files in attachment.

(Attachment didn't work. I'll try again this evening)

And now the files should be attached.

 

Is something wrong with the files or is it ap problem with my DCG settings?

IL2 DCG Menu

FILES

Optional Campaign Folder: When using 3rd Party campaigns for DCG, click this option to set the path to the data for that
campaign (or campaigns).

 

RUN

Generate Campaign: clicking this menu item will open a couple dropdown boxes to allow you to create a campaign just as if
you clicked the "Globe" icon.

Thanks idefix44 for helping me.

 

Optional Campaign folder is set:

Run=>Generate campaign:

OK, I've found my problem. I didn't turn of Off-line Career (Auto-generation).

Now DCG gives me the following error but at least I know what to do about that:

I hope this will be the end of my problems.

Nope, still getting the Tobruk41 campaign in IL-2 instead of SiegeOfTobruk.

 

This is my dcgerror-file

It seems that one line is missing.

Retry after having add one or two stationary objects in your SiegeOfTobruk.mis file.

I actually put off having stationary as I have encountered this problem before a while back in my first attempt at a DCG campaign. I didn't want to put to much work in. I'll populate the map a bit and see what difference it makes.

I've put in 2056 stationary objects. Don't worry, I just copied them from another mission and rearranged them a bit. Still the same problem though.

 

I'm at lunch at work atm, pouring over the dcgerror-file. And I discovered this:

 

 

...

[2018/07/04 21:23:42.87] Campaign Data Files = C:\Games\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\DCG\SiegeOfTobruk\

...

[2018/07/04 21:23:42.212] Campaign folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\Missions\Campaign\DE\DCG\) selected.

...

[2018/07/04 21:23:46.415] CampFolder = C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\Missions\Campaign\DE\DCG\

...

 

Now my game folder is set in C:\Games\ but DCG apparently saves the campaign in a different folder. I may have dragged the entire game folder to a new location after installation of the DCG map. I honestly don't remember anymore. I hope that pointing DCG to the current game location will remedy the problem. I'll check it this evening.
