DGen/DCG campaigns AND Dynamic Weather for 4.11/HSFX6!
« on: September 21, 2012, 05:38:57 AM »



Hi folks and campaign builders.

As the title says,to get a better overview over the already existing Dynamic campaigs,I want to make a list from the stuff that is out and compatible with the actual 4.11.1 & HSFX mod pack.

Now,this thread is the official Home of my Dynamic Weather add-on for all Stock DCG Campaigns!!!



After spending many hours of trial & error I come to the end that many of the older campaigns are no longer working since the changes in plane loadouts by TD and HSFX  leads to the well known and anoying "plane explodes at mission start bug"!

Sadly,this happends to most of the Enjoyer Campaigns,Boelkes fine stuff from the past days,Lonestars Pacific bloodbath,and many others.

So far I´ve found the following campaigns working for 4.11.1 and HSFX6:

-DCG Solomons 1942-45 V1.6 (unmodded V4.11m) by Lonestar. (Stock Map?)

For all DCG users,look at the DCG final version.(3.47):

http://www.lowengrin.com/news.php

For all DGEN users,some of the campaigns need the new DGen Mod exe by Azura.Please keep in mind that this is still a VERY beta and a work in progress,so,if you encounter bugs,crashes or White rabbits & Yellow Mushrooms with Green and Pink dots,post this in Azuras thread.  :D

http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,20104.0.html

So please guys,feel free to complete this list or post a bit of your work in progress for upcoming campaigns.Every news are more than welcome!!

Dynamic Weather v.2.0. For Paul Lowengrins Dynamic Campaign Generator v.3.47. (Important:you need HSFX 6.17!)

As the Title says,this adds the Dynamic Weather from Checkyersix awesome C&C Mod (wich is now part in HSFX 6) to all the Stock Campaigns in DCG 3.47.It´s nothing big,only a small but powerfull addition from me for all the IL-2 users out there.I´ve tested every single Campaign File,so it should work without any problems.If you find some problems or bugs,please post it here,and I will fix it!

For the best in Game Effects,I suggest to turn of the HUD & all Map Icons.It becomes a real challenge to find your way to the target or back home if the Weather turns really bad,and you never know whats the next Weather situation is.  ;D

Full Readme is now included!

Checkyersix for the great C&C Mod!
Slink,Lonestar and WindWpn for Inspiration and patience with me..and their great work with the continious DCG updates
...and all the DCG maniacs,Campaign builders and the whole SAS comunity!

I made this topic a sticky at the request of Semor so you 4.11 guys could better keep track of the campaigns for 4.11. :)

Note, I have the following DCG campaigns running in HSFX 6:

 - Battle of Britain v1.3 (LS)
 - Aleutians (LS) note required installation of AG Aleutians map (the version which includes airfield at Dutch Harbor)

Likely other DCG campaigns will work, but I have been playing more than testing recently.  Note however, for BoB and others I have hit a DCG error on occasion which reports " "on" is not a valid integer value. " when ending mission.  This error occurs when the game ends mission and kills il2 before viewing the mission results.  It seems to tie to DCG attempting to read the event log, but I thought this should occur when hitting "Apply" rather than ending mission.

All in all, I have searched for the word "on" in all files tied to event logs, dcg files, and campaign setup however, cannot zero in on the error. 

Actually, does anyone have a recommendation for how to debug DCG errors tied to "reading" mission results?

As far as I know, the complete log file is not written until you has finished the mission!
Shortly thereafter, DCG reads the file for the debriefing to show the kills, destroying aircraft on the ground a.s.o.!
If you press "apply", the next mission will be already generated!

It is not necessarily the word "on"! It could also be the letters "on" in another word!

Yes, that is correct, the event log is written once mission is complete, and results are displayed on the debrief screen.  DCG interacts at this point as well to read the event log and create/update its own records at which point the error I am experiencing occurs.  Yea I figured its the letters "on" and not necessarily the word.  However, even various searches of the letter combo across generated/updated DCG files in the missions/campaigns/country/dcg_mission_folder/ did not return any solid leads.

All in all, remains a mystery.  Though, if IL2 is reloaded, the campaign can be called again and the mission will be rerun.  Only downside is if you had a number of kills, those are not recorded. 

PS:  also have to open windows task manager following error to kill a running dgen process, otherwise dcg will not correctly generate new missions.

Oh well, at least the AI in HSFX is the best out there, and the BoB campaign really feels right with a "smart" enemy!

heading up again over Margate shortly!
