IL-2 doesn't recognise my 3rd party DCG campaign

Recommended Posts

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)

SiegeOfTobruk.zip

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.

[2018/06/29 21:41:09.9XX] Form Create Complete

 

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.
