Dark Blue World Downloads: Base Pack and Mandatory Updates



NOTE: Read all instructional & information Topics in this board, and in the Download carefully before proceeding! start here:

Newbie Guide : What is Dark Blue World (DBW) ?

Note: The original Base Pack 1.0 has fallen away. If you are new to DBW, you now directly go to Build 1.1, downloading Build 1.1 part 1 and Build 1.1 part 2 "super". Users who already have Build 1.1 (the older version) over the old build 1.0, do not need this before proceeding to build 1.2.



DBW Build 1.1 (includes build 1.0)



~This update comes in two parts. Both are required for a succesfull installation.
~Included in Part 2 is a quick installation guide, and all other needed documents, including fileslist, features and build-log with credits.

Visit the Bug Report topic for the relevant build to see notices on known issues http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/board,189.0.html



NOTE: the documents following are included with the download also.

Installing DBW Build 1.1 (super)
(for new players of DBW, you no longer need build 1.0, you can go directly from your UP3 install to DBW buils 1.1. Following are the installation instructions)

Code: [Select]
[b]Requirements:[/b]

~ Working copy of IL2 1946 v 4.101, with UP3, and any UP3 hotfixes and updates, installed and working (at least up to UP3 RC3 or later)

~ We advise: This copy of IL2 should be located somewhere other than your C:\Program Files folder.


[b]Installation:[/b]

~ Use [url=http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,2123.0.html]7zip[/url] to unpack the downloads "part 1"  and "part 2 super"

~ Disable ALL jsgme mods you may have enabled

~ Total (both parts combined)Contents are 6 folders and an il2fb.exe file:

~Missions
~#DBW
~SAS_DBW (part 1 and part 2 downloads both have parts of this folder)
~jsgmemods
~MyScreenShots
~SAS Modact 3 Documentation


~In your Game's Missions folder, do the following

1) Backup and remove the QuickQMBPro folder, if you have it **(see notes below)


~ Copy all  items to your chosen game installation. If asked about over-writing files, say that it is OK.


[b]Before starting the game:[/b]

~ Ensure that you have the latest version of the il2fb.exe selector, and the latest version of the SAS Offline Buttons file installed. (DBW build 1.0 comes with il2fb.exe selector v1.3b, and SAS Offline Buttons v8.9 ). Latest versions of these can be found in this board: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/board,176.0.html

~ Ensure that, in your JSGME folder, there are no other il2fb.exe files present. If there are, back them up and delete them.

~ Ensure that NO UP3 option is enabled in jsgme.


[b]Starting the game:[/b]

~ Click on the selector to launch it. Make your chosen setting and select your chosen game (Dark Blue World in this instance), and start it.


[b]We Advise:[/b]

~ If you experience some stuttering on some maps, to enter your conf.ini file, and under [Render_OpenGL], and set
TexCompress=2
and
TexFlags.TexCompressARBExt=1

(this is realy heavyhanded compression, and will reduce the quality of the visuals, but at least it may make your game playeable. I use it myself sometimes)

~ That you use the "22050" audio quality setting, and Disable Extentions, for best results.


[b]Notes:[/b]

~ DBW contains DiFFM mod by default. Do not install other versions of DiFFM on it.
~ The AI mod in the JSGME options, is a beta, which is being developed still. Use at your own risk. More info in the "AIMod Readme" in the documents folder.


[b]Support:[/b]

~ Report and post support requests in the [url=http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/board,189.0.html]Dark Blue World Discussion & Support Board[/url]
~ Install the latest DBW builds before reporting any problems, as they may have been solved already.


[b]Credits:[/b]

~ DBW build 1.0 is based on UltraPack 3. Refer to UP3 readme's for all relevant credits.

~ Changes and packaging of DBW Build 1 is by SAS~CirX, with support of UP and SAS development teams.

~ il2fb.exe selectors and additional DBW support by SAS~Storebror

Fixed AHS in E and F series 109

added more QMP pro missions, from Le0ne, Gerax and Knochenlutscher

1.1:

New planes:
~~~~~~~

The number of new planes have been kept to a minimum while tests are ongoing about the limits of JDK1.3. However, there are some great one in here:

~Ki 100 Otsu by Japancat, with fixes by Birdman, and default skin by CirX
~Fokker G1 by Ranwers, Messer, Sani & Birdman, customised for DBW, dedicated to Netherlands service, new classes, improved gunsight view, beter tail logo texture, ect.

Also on the plane front:

~ The Me210's have their own Hungarian slot with painschemes now, CirX's treat.
~ The Hurricane MkI wooden prop also has its own 3d slot, with fabric wings skin by Phas3e! BOF here we come!
~ The L-5A sentinel artillery spotter by Flakiten and CY6 has been merged with the L-5 already in the game. Go blow some shit up. The Sentinels also now have properly good default skins by MishaMisha.

~All Ki84s now have opening canopies, thank to 200th_Sakagawa
~ Compass, gunsight, reticle and mask fixes for Me262 (Blue reticles is an urban legend folks, sorry!), Buffalo, A-20G, Finnish Brewster, do335s, He162, Me 163, Hurricane MkII, and POV fix and reticles for He219. Most by CirX, also from TT.

~ A brand new new 250kgBombJ from 200th Kajinami
~ Added missing mat fix for certain other nation Bf109's from HaDes

And then amongst others, a HUMONGOUS amount of fixes by Birdman, the man! See the 1.1 build log for more details, it is too much to list. But highlights are:
- F9F-2 LODs fixed, ejection seat direction fixed (thanks Anto) and RedFox90's canopy mod applied
- Spitfire Mk.XIV damaged tail, keel and rudder meshes fixed so that they now have proper markings ovarlays and two-sided mesh in case of alpha holes.
- Spitfire Mk.XVI updated to Anto's latest version with smooth leading edge of wing and proper alpha channel in default skin.
- fixed and added the newer I-15 3d model by Ivan750.
- 3d LOD and damage fixes to AR234C, FokkerG1, L-5Artillery Spotter and U19A_Gun

- 200th_Sakagawa's new default skins added for A6M-22(Ko)
~ Added Docholiday's Mosquito CC Rocket position and 110C4 canopy position fix and F2 engine fix, updated by Birdman

....and many more... cheers Birdman!

Also, quite a bit of TLC was given to the tigermoth, by both Birdman and CirX.

then, ~ P.11c Engine mesh updates by Loku
~ P.11F new default skins by Loku

Also, T-6 trainer, ADF (object behind canopy) color changed from pitchblack (black hole in screen) to realistic black, by CirX

Also, I did this: ~ Wilcat f4f3, wingfold toggled for catapultmod compatibility. Fixed the wingfold direction issue that prevented this in the past. This is not perfect, the flaps protruding are a problem, but, it is just a quickfix.

"Catapultmod" you ask?

read on....



Functionality:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 ~ Included is the latest Beta of of Anto's "AI Package" mod for DBW.
There is a readme for it included, with instructions of fnctions an dfeatures of it. The highlights are:
- Certificate's AI (HSFX5 version)
- Carrier TO +catapult v5.3.3 by Fireball
- GATTACK mod by CY6, tested by Beowolf
- Ground Attack Orders mod by CY6, tested by Beowolf
- Sniper Gunner fix by CY6 and Riken, tested by Beowolf
- AI Overheating and Supercharger mod by Sani
- 'School for Robots' AI tweak by Recruit and Skipper
- Nightfighter AI tweak by Anto
- Zuti Friction mod


~ Also included is the latest version of MissionPro, that fixes all previous problems, from PAL, and with it,, a debugged and ARRANGED missions set for it by CirX. Quoted from the Quick Install txt: Included in build 1.1 is a rearranged and somewhat de-bugged set of missions for QMB Pro. Have a look and see if you will enjoy it that way. Maps are arranged by theater. If you dont like you can copy your old missions back, or if you like it, you can rename you own custom maps missions in the same format. The format is that, as long as the folder name, and the first part of the .mis file name is the same, QMBPro will see it. Inspect for yourself. Also, the sides are now called "Blue" and "Red" to fit in with outside-WW2 scenarios also.

~ Then there is also a host of fixes and improvements from our sister team at UP3, and while some of it is in here already, more of it will be triggered by the latest UP3 update. Happy days! Cheers Hades!

~ And last but not least, a COMPLETE REWRITE of the forgotten countries classes by CirX, which you may not notice right away, but which you will be thankfull for down the line when you do not hit that plane limit wall so soon!


MAPS:
~~~~

Boomer is the guy here, he did a huge amount of work, to get what we have correct, and to set us up for the massive map expantion packs that are just around the corner.
~ Updated map inis with latest fixes and versions from Boomer and fixes by Gilb57, fixes to all camouflage settings by Boomer & CirX, as well as airfield and other map fixes by Gilb57. Cheers dudes!


Sound:
~~~~~~

I save the best for last. The DBW soundsystem has been made independant from UP3, to avoid future confusion and cross-loading. We now have great flexibility. To kick this off, Several improvements have been made to weapon sound assignments file structures, And from Jiver we got a great Helicopter sound, now assigned to all chopper via the included buttons file (SAS 8.9 offline), as well as a nifty reassignment of the Airbrake souns, also Jiver's idea.
Our new base-soundfile has also been reviewed in detail and some sampling and other errors were not merely fixed, they were totally ass-raped, by CirX.

To solve a filesize problem, I removed Jiver's soundmod option form the new buils 1.1 super. It is now be available for seperate download : http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,16540.0.html

The above list may seem pretty tall, but, there is a 100 and 1 small fixes and tweaks that were not even noted when they were done. And with each build DBW will get better and better.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Cheers!
CirX

PS: For modders who want to mess with stuff, I included as usual a full fileslist for the SFS archives in Build 1.1 in the Documents folder! Have a blast!

Recent Mapfixes by UP~Boomer are included

Build 1.1 super includes all the relevant and needed bugfixes that came out prior to Build 1.2. After succesfull install of build 1.1 super, proceed directly to build 1.2

DBW Responsible Modding: Important Information

DBW is very mod friendly. However, if you plan to add mods to DBW manualy, please bear the following in mind:

DBW will be frequently updated, and many of those updates will take the forum of new planes, maps, objects, and other things that require editing of the .ini files and properties files.

When you install such an update, it will be your own responsibility to ensure that there are no duplicate and/or outdated and/or conflicting entries done by you previously.

So, take care and take notes of what you install to your DBW. Errors and destroyed installs following from careless additions by players will be their own problem.

Quick Install Guide For DBW Build 1.3
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Requirements:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~ Working copy of IL2 1946 v 4.101, with UP3, and any UP3 hotfixes and updates, installed and working (at least up to UP3 RC3 or later)

~ DBW Build 1.2, working.


Installation:
~~~~~~~~~~~~

~ Use 7zip to unpack the 6 parts downloads

~ DISABLE ALL jsgme Mods for DBW.

if you have never touched your MapMods folder, or updated your static.ini by yourself, you can skip the warning.

Warning: If you have customised your all.ini, or static.ini before:  Build 1.3 contains many new maps. If you have installed new maps on your own in DBW, you are advised to carefully edit your all.ini with a file compare program, like winmerge. Your #DBW\STD\i18n\maps.properties and maps_ru.properties will also need to be updated. See the features document of build 1.3 for a list of maps added to the all.ini.

~ Copy the downloaded build 1.3 files into your main game installation.
(Part 1-5 contains SFS archives called updbw_mapex_01.sfs to updbw_mapex_05.sfs. They go into your main game folder, replacing the placeholders put there in build 1.2)



We did warn you about installing maps on your own! There will be another big map expantion in not too long a time.
Players who have not added maps by themselves or edited any maps, do not have to worry about a thing.

Feature list and Fileslist for Build 1.3 is included in relevant documents folder.

DBW Build 1.3 was made by SAS-CirX and packed by UP~HaDeS. The Map Expansion package was put together and edited by UP~Boomer.

Cuba,Dakar,Madagascar,Snark Jungle
all had issues and are bug fixed for all reported bugs on those maps
BoF(Battle of France),Kt_eastafrica,
ElsaHonNic(Football wars),PS_South_VietNam
and Greenscreen map are all maps that were asked to be added
ag_viet_Minh,Formosa,MidEastBig all updated maps

This version also has numerous airfields on Formosa now,9 I think in total
Med War over Italy,in UP RC4
But I added it to the DBW all.ini and maps.properties file so it will be available in DBW through the RC4 UP Core maps

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Cheers!

CirX's DBW Full Mission Builder FontMod: This is for people struggling with the amount of maps in the FMB maps list. This mod lowers the font size in FMB slightly, you can also customise it futher. Choose the setting closest to your screen's horisonal resolution, and next to it, reduce the font size. (or reduce all the fonts by 1 point at a time)

Attached Below, unpack and put foler "0 0 0 DBW FMB FontMod" in your #DBW folder.

Special Note re the 1916 section: A very rough beta of the DBW 1916 pack is included. It contains a number of shorcomings.
This was collected and packed by UP~Boomer for DBW1.2. I got it then, added one or two things, and had to re-adapt it to DBW 1.6. This, together will a lot of other housekeeping work on the endless duplication files one finds in these things, and the repopping of a lot of the classfiles, to eliminate the use of the DiFFM (which is realy a tool for testing), led to me just running out of steam on this project. I got so far as to revert to stock technic ini's static and stationary inis and such, with small additions. So the bottom line is, there are probably a 1000 bugs and shit in the ini files and classfiles, while I recon the content should be more or less good to go.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. DBW 1916 can access all the stuff in the SFS files that DBW has access to, it is just a matter of sorting it all out and telling it what to use. I am out of steam with it, and I have a lot of important upcoming work in DBW porper. So I put this out as is, and asked those in the community who can and are interested, to get involved and sort this 1916 pack out for us.

Know issues is that two of the maps will not save (the first two I think), the rest seem OK, and everything else seems to work so far, but, I warned you, I did not get to even nearly finish this, and I think it is time to hand it back to those who realy want to.

1916 Pack:
~~~~~~~~~

A very rough beta of the DBW 1916 pack is included. It contains a number of shorcomings.
This was collected and packed by UP~Boomer for DBW1.2. I hgot it then, added one or two things, and had to re-adapt it to DBW 1.6. This, together will a lot of other housekeeping work on the endless duplication files one finds in these things, and the repopping of a lot of the classfiles, to eliminate the use of the DiFFM (which is realy a tool for testing), led to me just running out of steam on this project. I got so far as to revert to stock technic ini's static and stationary inis and such, with small additions. So the bottom line is, there are probably a 1000 bugs and shit in the ini files and classfiles, while I recon the content should be more or less good to go.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. DBW 1916 can access all the stuff in the SFS files that DBW has access to, it is just a matter of sorting it all out and telling it what to use. I am out of steam with it, and I have a lot of important upcoming work in DBW porper. So I put this out as is, and asked those in the community who can and are interested, to get involved and sort this 1916 pack out for us.

Know issues is that two of the maps will not save (the first two I think), the rest seem OK, and everything else seems to work so far, but, I warned you, I did not get to even nearly finish this, and I think it is time to hand it back to those who realy want to.

Credits for all this WW! stuff I was not given, but I will list here names who I know worked on this stuff:
UP~Boomer, Zuti, Sergei "Oknevas", Uufflakke/Lejo, Dimus, Agracier, Asheshouse, Beowolff, RAF209_Benge , Skipper and T.Dasche, CirX,
Please alert me to missing names.

You can launch the 1916 DBW by selecting it in the selector (below Dark Blue World).
Also be aware, most DBW jsgme options will now enable a thing for both DBW and DBW 1916. Except for the AI mod, which is only for DBW at this time.

DBW Build 1.7



Note: Read the installation instructions carefully before proceeding ! They are attached below, and they are also in the download's Documents folder. This is a very tricky update for those who are going to try to adapt their previous modified and customised installs to, and it is realy meant as a "fresh start" baseline type of version. Nevertheless, there will be a dedicated help thread in the main DBW board for those manualy installing to this version.

Note: there will soon be a large single DBW download that will contain all versions in one step

Code: [Select]
Quick Install Guide For DBW Build 1.7
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Requirements:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~ Working copy of IL2 1946 v 4.101, with UP3, and any UP3 hotfixes and updates, installed and working (at least up to UP3 RC4 or later)
~ DBW Build 1.6, working.


Installation:
~~~~~~~~~~~~

step 1 ~ Use 7zip to unpack . You should have 6 folders and 2 files ( one IL-2 selector.exe and one il2fb.ini file)

step 2 ~ make sure to DISABLE all jsgme mods for DBW.

Step 3 ~ Go to your jsgmemods folder, and DELETE the 2 folders called "#DBW_AIMod" and "#DBW_MissionPro Combo by PAL"

Step 4 ~ Go to your #DBW folder, and DELETE the XTD Folder.

Step 5 ~ Go to your Missions folder in your main game directory, and delete your QuickQMBPro folder. Make a backup of it before you delete it so you can replace any of your own custom additions later again if you need to or choose to.

Step 6 ~ Copy all the files and folders of the 1.7 download over to your game directory, overwrite files if asked.

Step 7 ~ Open the IL-2 Selector.exe, and make a setting of your choice, and save that setting. It is important to save the setting at least once after installation, to allow the new selector to set itself up properly. Read the included selector pdf guide for more info.


Notes for Manual updaters:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~the only document in the XTD/i18n folder that is updated in 1.7, is hud_log_ru.properties
~If you want to manualy update your STD folder, do so with winmerge or by following in detail the Notes for Manual updaters guides alongside this document.Otherwise copy new STD folder over old one.


DBW Build 1.6 was made by SAS~Anto, SAS~Storebror, & SAS-CirX and packed by Lutz & HaDeS.
