DCG 3.50 Open Beta

Recommended Posts

Additions to Version 3.50 (Build #1)

Due to the issue in the latest IL2 patch (4.14m), the back up of DGen and NGen has been motified so that these files are renamed DGEN_bak.bak and NGEN_bak.bak (from DGEN_bak.exe and NGEN_bak.exe).  The change is because unknown .exe files in the main game folder cause the game to abort.  As .bak files, they are ignored. 

 

Prior to playing a DGen/NGen campaign using DCG, uncheck the option to use them before running the game.  Once the game is open, alt+tab out, run DCG and check the option to replace DGEN or NGEN.  Uncheck the option when you are done (or before you play again).

 

In other words, this first beta for 3.50 is an imperfect fix for DCG for use with the 4.14m patch.

Additions to Version 3.50 (Build #2)

 

Destroyers will no longer respawn if the "Ships Remain Sunk" option is selected.  Ships and columns will no longer revert to generic names if the date is manually set.  Further tweaks to air starts including spacing between flights and distance from target.

Edit: Removed attachment.  Removed respawning of destroyers in build 3.

I know you are keeping things current since your last revision was in April or I wouldn't have brought this up. In your Readme text you still are sending people to your old domain for bug reports.
 

Although IL-2 DCG does all the above and more, it remains a work in progress. Bug reporting, comments and suggestions are welcomed. For the latest news, complete instructions, support, and bug reporting visit

For me it is the last paragraph on the first page.

Build 3 is now available.  It includes tweaks to missions, particularly CAP over ships.  Also has further tweaks to Berlin campaign and airfield limits. 

Added a new TimeTable Command: PriorityLandingSite

Armor/Trucks will always unload from ships at a designated priority landing site (only one can be designated per side at any given time).

Edit: Removed attachment.

How relevant are these notes in the Installation and Settings Instructions.txt file?

Note: FB and AEP users who do not have the Battle over Europe add-on will need to get the USAAF and RAF add-ons from Netwings.org to fly American and British campaigns. They can both be got from Netwings.org.

The RAF campaign can still be found at the internet Archive version of Netwings but the USAAF "The Real Deal"  files are long gone it seems.
(Netwings went down in 2009.)

I don't see the USAAF campaign at M4T either.
