Hello.

 

Is there a maximum number of planes DCG can handle?

 

I use CUP and downloaded class file created by JG7_X_Man.  It has 964 lines.

 

I noticed that this section:

P_40SUKAISVOLOCH2A             Curtiss Tomahawk IIa, 1941          gb 1 1 1 194101 194512 None                           TomahawkMkIIa                       None                           5000 Meters 360.00 kph  Default     360.00 kph

was missing from the Squadron editor. I created a new campaign with these planes, all the planes were replaced with other planes (Tomahawks with MS410's, all the rest with Hurricane IIb's)

 

Then I edited the class file, deleted everything but this section and restarted the campaign. All the planes were there.

 

EDIT: JG7_X_Man confirmed that these planes are present in his installation.

 

EDIT2: Historic Production Dates is off. DCG version 3.49 Beta. Windows 7 Ultimate running in Finnish - maybe that messes up text coding?

It's not the maximum number.

 

I completely uninstalled DCG - including campaigns - and reinstalled it from scratch using original dcg files . Started campaign Tobruk 41 for RAF - still missing Tomahawks that are present in aircraft settings panel.

 

I copied the skin folder names from air.ini to class.dcg to folder name and skins work in game.

 

:o

Got it.  ;D

Renamed my old Skins folder and created a new one, works perfectly.

Still don't understand why it didn't work, as there are no differences in names. And it worked when only the missing section was present in class file.

My old Skins folder had 1142 folders as the new one has 963. Maybe that was the reason.

Long long ago, IL-2 used to use the same name for the skin folder as the online dogfight ID of the plane, so I used the existence of the skin folder to confirm the availability of the plane in the version of the game a person was using.  Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, the rules changed.   So now it's a bit of a mess.
