  1. Past hour
  2. 😭 I can't find the JF17 in DCS. In the module manager the JF17 doesn't show, the same for the control setting page, Quick Mission, Training etc. On the DCS site in my profile I can see that I have the module completed. Any tip before I start an Support adventure?
  3. Today
  4. Damn, I'm gonna have to miss it for a ski trip. Hope we aren't too outnumbered for the last game, I know I haven't been able to show up that much this go-around. Looking forward to FC games but I'll miss RoF and all the options it gave us. That southern England game was a blast. S!
  5. Planning to be online in ~1 hour (10 pm UTC) for some flights. Have no preferences for WWI or WWII, but as J2 server still seems to be offline, it will probably any WW2 server (TAW maybe?).
  6. You might try uninstalling the the 2015-2019 Visual C++ and reinstalling them using the Visual C++ executables that are inside the game's redistribution folder. That should have occurred when you reinstalled the game, but perhaps they didn't install then because you already had a newer version installed. Anyway, worth a try since sometimes games can be finicky if the correct version of the VCC package isn't installed.
  7. As you see, it initially DID find some corrupt files and stuff....probably minor and unrelated, though. Once it had corrected what it found, and I had installed the Visual C++ 2015/2017/2109, I ran it again; and it came up clean.
  8. Did you try running SFC /SCANNOW from the command prompt to see if any system files are corrupt? NVM, I saw you said you tried this earlier.
  9. Yeah, I did look that up. It is time for me to try harder to narrow things down. I only have 2 games.... Great Battles and RoF; but I need to fly RoF long enough to ensure it never crashes. I also need to determine with greater confidence that it doesn't crash in other areas or maps within Great Battles. I thank you and Baron for your diligent attention. I hope to soon have a much better idea of what's going on. 👍
  10. S! It's been a furious tumult. I hope to be online and functional for Saturday. I want to fly in the last RoF FiF and for therapeutic reasons.
  11. DWM.exe is the desktop windows manager. Not sure if this error message is helpfull as dwm is running all apps in system. Now it can be almost any part of your system that is causing this.
  12. Yesterday
  13. That is a picture of the factory where there will be tanks. The thing is that the factory shape is different than the factory that you bomb.
  14. Game crash a few minutes ago while running QMB on Arras map. This time, difference in that there were many error message screens. However, each time I took a screen shot, another one appeared after it....so there was no way to get them all. Basically it was saying that the program could not perform some function that it was being asked to do. I have to say I think the current Great Battles release is bugged. It is probably in a way that very few realize, since how many actually have G-sync? That has got to have something to do with it. And, I still haven't had a crash, except on the Arras map. That could be a coincidence, or it may be very significant.

  15. S! Butzzell, Pictures below are aerodrome attack, factory, supply depot, tanks at a factory ( sorry no tanks ), reserve unit and hospital. Will there be tanks to bomb or is this treated as a factory? or are we knocking out the fuel tanks??
  16. S! All Saturday December 7 we will be changing from Midway to Pearl Harbor. Ooops that is for next year after PTO comes out. This will be the last FiF for this year. Blue team is Entente and Red team is Central. It will be the even map. After FiF the server will be changed to a preview of FiF for FC. There will be no 15 minute wait before first takeoff, no death penalty and unlimited scout planes. South part of the map has the closest airfields to the front. There are a few changes some are visual and some are game mechanics. The subtitles have been reduced to the non icon targets. When targets are killed there are few to no subtitles and the target icon is removed from the map. Secondary targets are usually announced once and then have an icon placed on the map. For the General and the spy, they now spawn a flak gun that must be killed to pick up the spy or General. No landing necessary. When landing back at base these missions spawn the Reserve unit Target. Because of soggy ground, there is no rescue mission and all planes should land at active bases to complete missions or stay alive. Trains have a pair of MGs for defense. Trench line recon is merely flying the pattern from one end or the other. There are multiple check zones that must be triggered. HQ recon is a single check zone but needs two passes to complete. The target shows no signs of being active, You must pass over it to see if you get an active message. After pics get back to base, Secondary target is announced and target Icon for secondary and HQ are placed on map. No more trying to remember location of HQ. All recons must be done between 2000 and 4000 meters. Hospital icon only shows after the enemy ace is killed. No Flak fence. Machine guns run along the trenches and have large spaces between the groups. They almost reach as high as 5000 ft Trench attack target is now out in the trenches. It is in a curved group of bunkers so that it stands out. Target is now 1 flak gun and 3 MGs. The hard part is going to be adjusting the difficulty level of targets. How much defense and how many bombs will be the big questions. Trains and Truck convoys are much harder to kill due to motion and time delay on bombs. There are now 3 trains (no icon), 3 truck convoys (no Icon), 3 ships (stationary), 3 Aerodrome attack, 3 factories, 3 bridges, 3 supply depot. Pictures below are aerodrome attack, factory, supply depot, tanks at a factory ( sorry no tanks ), reserve unit and hospital. There are multiple copies of these locations on the map. Not all will be active. The Odd and Even map are built into the mission file. The game randomly chooses.
  17. Actually I installed both the x86 and x64 versions (links 1 and 2 of the "updates"). I think that's necessary if you have a 64-bit operating system (Great Battles is a 32-bit game). Anyhow, this is what I have now: Interesting how the new 2015-2019 versions seem to have replaced the older 2017 versions. That could be a good thing. Hopefully I have a new .dll and it won't crash again. If it does, at least it should now identify a different version of that dll, and we'll know that it isn't the actual driver causing the crash. I also ran a scan: C:\WINDOWS\System32>sfc /scannow I actually did it before I got the new drivers; and it found some corrupted operating system and/or registry files and corrected them. Don't know if they were related at all. Anyway, should be good for another try. Thanks!
  18. The DLL is version 14.15.26706.0 so it came with VC++ 2017. I would install the x64 version. it should install the latest VC++ 2019.
  19. This is what I have on my computer now: Also I am not sure which D/L is correct from the link you provided: It is also confusing since the D/L's refer to "Visual Studio", and I'm not sure that's the same thing as "Redistributable". Also, is not that part of the original process of downloading the game? (Great Battles)? Which I just did a couple of days ago. I could be wrong, but it seemed like the installation routine installed DirectX and (possibly?) MS Visual C++. However, for that latter one, it just said that newer files were already installed, and that no files would be installed. If you look at the dates in that first picture, you see that all of the latest versions were either installed or updated on 11/4/19. I certainly didn't do that! I'm thinking that must have been part of a Windows Update??? In any case, I am unsure exactly what to do; would installing MS Visual C++ 2019 pre-empt all of the other versions? (see the message "for example" under the links in the second picture). For now I have done nothing, since I don't want to accidentally screw anything up.
  20. Hi Luftritter That DLL is part of Visual C++ 2015 Runtime. It is possible that some other game did a overwrite. Try to download it again and reinstall https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads
  21. It is really strange. Honestly i have not the same issue. IL2 game working correctly for me.
  22. Oh yeah, Voice Attack is really helpful. You can either create your own profile. Or we can share ours with you.
  23. No anti-virus installed except native Windows Defender, which has been disabled and I still have crashes. Please recommend a stable earlier driver version, such as what you are using now. My current nVidia driver version is 441.20 Strangely enough, after some more testing, this is beginning to look like it's associated with the Arras map. So far I've never crashed on the Lapino summer map.
  24. Look in the last post here: Added skins are posted as an update file... no need to d-load the full Monty
