Noob help, upside down spawns and day on repeat?

Recommended Posts

I followed these instructions

'1. Run IL2 DCG.
2. Turn off the off-line Career (Auto-Generation) Mode. 
3. If starting a new campaign, click the "Globe" icon.
4. From the drop-down box that appears, select the campaign.
5. Click on the "Start Button".
6. Make any other changes such as squadron, plane, weather, etc.
7. Generate one mission by hitting the DCG "Generate Mission" button.
8. Run IL2 Forgotten Battles.
9. Start a new career with the Nationality you want to fly. DCG should appear as one of the options. Select it.
10. Return to the Main Menu and minimize FB by Alt+Tab (or Exit FB altogether).
11. Turn on DCG's off-line Career (Auto-Generation) Mode. Press the "Generate Mission" button.
12. Close IL2 DCG. The DCG campaign should generate missions automatically from this point on without your having to reconfigure anything.. 
13. Return to the FB Main screen then re-enter the Career Mode.'

And I either spawn like this, ( Attached )? What obvious option am I too blind to see? :D 

 

Is this a too many squadrons problem?

 

EDIT - It also seems to be running the same mission over and over? The campaign started on the 10th it went to the 11th and is now just doing it over and over??? :( 

 

Thanks!

Generally this happens when there's something wrong with the data files for the plane that you've selected to fly.  It shouldn't happen with IL-2 if the game is fully patched, but as soon as you introduce a mod, all bets are off.

Ahhhh interesting. Deleting the DCG folder and using DIT to re-add the BAT aircraft to the polish campaign seems to have worked for now. Thank you for the point in the right direction. :)

The full autogen still doesn't seem to work for me, I'm not sure if thats because of the modded planes or not, so I'm just manually generating them. It will still end the Polish campaign at some point and move to a new map won't it? Even if I'm manually generating missions?

Honestly, I'm 99% sure I'm probably buggering this up somehow. I doubt there is any problem with the DCG. :)

 

1. Run IL2 DCG. - Done
2. Turn off the off-line Career (Auto-Generation) Mode. -Easy
3. If starting a new campaign, click the "Globe" icon. -Done
4. From the drop-down box that appears, select the campaign. -Done
5. Click on the "Start Button". -Done
6. Make any other changes such as squadron, plane, weather, etc. -Done
7. Generate one mission by hitting the DCG "Generate Mission" button. -Done
8. Run IL2 Forgotten Battles. -Done
9. Start a new career with the Nationality you want to fly. DCG should appear as one of the options. Select it. - I presume this means hit the generate button and then go back to the main menu?
10. Return to the Main Menu and minimize FB by Alt+Tab (or Exit FB altogether) -Done.
11. Turn on DCG's off-line Career (Auto-Generation) Mode. Press the "Generate Mission" button. -Doing this generates a message about campaign must be selected in IL2FB
12. Close IL2 DCG. The DCG campaign should generate missions automatically from this point on without your having to reconfigure anything.. 
13. Return to the FB Main screen then re-enter the Career Mode. Done

Generates the first mission on the 10th in Poland, fly it, finish it, apply, next mission is still the 10th.  -EDIT- If I could read, I would have read that DGen replacement should be off. Turned it off, now it works and autogenerates missions just fine. See, it was me all along! :) What seems to be the problem is it isn't generating new briefing text. But if you just hit fly it does throw a new mission at you. :) Any idea what I did to break that? :)

 

Also, is the 'Roster' button meant to be gone? 

 

Thank you so much for the help man! :)

It's still set to normal as far as I can tell. It doesn't really bother me that much to be honest. :) It's working great now, better than most programs people charge large sums of cash for. :P Has better support as well.

 

Just one more question, are there any tutorials about for adding maps? (Which I assume is complicated) I'd love to add some of the bigger map like France 1940 GilB57 and have some campaigns play out on it! :)

 

TY so much for all your time! :)

ahhh beautiful. I'll have a crack later tonight :D So the map has to be set up properly to allow DCG to generate missions? 

 

It's not as simple as renaming the map from Lviv to Poland_1939 then hoping everything works. :P:D
