I refused to abandon 4.14, but I also refused to abandon DCG, so this is what you have to do

 

 

1. Open the folder in which you have 4.14 installed
2. Rename the stock dgen to something like dgen_stock._exe. For your game to start IT MUST NOT HAVE THE .EXE EXTENSION.

3. Open DCG and go to 'Replace stock dgen', so the DCG DGen appears in your folder

4. Create a new text file with notepad in the folder in which you have 4.14 installed. Copy and paste this
 

Ren "dgen.exe" "dgen._exe"
timeout /t 1 /nobreak
start il2fb.exe
timeout /t 8 /nobreak
Ren "dgen._exe" "dgen.exe"

The fourth line, timeout /t 8 /nobreak says that the system has to wait 8 seconds before continuing. This is so il2fb.exe has enough time to start up (not load, just start up). If you need more start up time, change the 8 to a greater number.

 

5. Save your file as whatever name you want, but with a .bat extension

6. From now and forever, you'll have to open this bat file. You can create a shorcut to desktop if you want.

If I understand this bat program you are renaming the dgen.exe file before the il2fb.exe starts and then renaming the dgen.exe file back to an .exe file after il2fb.exe starts so you can trick the game into running.

Exactly. You could also do this with MAT manager

I created a bat file as suggested and it works great.

Glad to hear it worked. B)

Imo it should never have been necessary though.
