Re: DGenPack 3.0 is released
« Reply #408 on: September 05, 2019, 04:09:12 AM »


About questions, you asked here, how to install 3.0. My way to get 3.0 is:
- install stock Il-2 4.14.1. Its important - stock and clean 4.14.1 - NO ANY MODS!
- download 3.0 update (19,4 GB in 40 parts)
- install this 3.0 update on clean stock 4.14.1.

good news we now have dgenpack 3.0 ... may you please give me a link to dowload to 40 parts ?

Hi Motorhead. Regarding the Luftwaffe Fighter South which was a stock game career the following happened
1. I set up a new Il2 4.14.1 with no mods as advised.
2. I added the 40 parts of Dgen Modpack v3.0 FULL via the aviaskins website.
3. I checked the merged v3.0 worked and so far, apart from the sound issue previously stated, I flew some QMBs okay
4. I looked at the career screen to see which Air Forces were present. Most of the stock careers that come with the game were not listed including Luftwaffe Fighter South.
5. I realised I had transferred an existing career with my copy 4.14.1 so decided to test to see if it would continue.
6. I flew mission 41 of Luftwaffe Fighter South and successfully completed it but when I pressed 'apply' the game set up a new screen with Cyrillic text but with the mission 41 details again. It seemed to have reset the mission ignoring the results of the successful mission. It may be because it could not find the career in the files.
7. The following Air Forces have campaigns listed (yours and a few stock) and I can list those for you if it helps
Finland 3, France3, Germany23, IJN 5, Italy 4, NL Dutch 1, RAAF 3, RAF 20, RN 2, RNZAF 1, Romania 1, Slovakia 2, USAAF 22, USMC 5, USN 20, VVS 31.

Hi blackshark. If you go to Aviaskins site main page you should see Dgen v3.0 in the first section of the campaigns forum in Asuras name. top line just now. Press that and it will give you the options I wrote below. I dont read russian but the 40 parts download alright. You need to amend one config line from 'locale ru' to 'locale en' as instructed then the text in careers will be in English.
There is a mediafire download but the file is so large they want you to join first so I used the following

Hi blackshark. Glad you found the files.
The link to Asura's forum is
forum.aviaskins.com/showthread.php?t=4386
The site is in Russian but if you have any questions there is an English forum noted at the bottom of the main page. On the main page you may see the DgenPack gold and red symbol. Press on that and it should take you to the same page as above.
As Motorhead states earlier there are gaps in the campaigns files because he has yet to work on them as he is busy with real life but he and Asura hope to fix some known bugs shortly. i.e. the sounds and certain maps.
Anyway there are many of Motorheads campaigns to enjoy it seems. Note that some of the campaigns that come with the stock game have somehow disappeared with DGen Mod Pack overrride.

Hi Motor

time passages and your campaigns just remain wonderful.

Only problem is: I am not a good pilot, at least as a fighter pilot  :-[ , so I am very very often killed  :( .


Soooo, to better enjoy your campaigns (I love the US navy campaigns) i would need a little help to "reduce" enemy AI skill a bit, is it possible and how ? i would like if I could reduce the enemy AI skill to "average" or "rookie" (I mean one step below from where it is now) and not reducing the enemy number of planes in a mission (I really love above all the historical reconstruction that you were able to do) ...

I see there is the DGENMOD.INI file ... is it there that I can make changes to have enemy AI less skilled ? Or in other files ?

If it's correct to change in DGENMOD.INI file, on which parameters should I act without changing the "historical balance" too much ?
I see above in the thread (https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,41494.msg580297/topicseen.html#msg580297) that you used those parameters:
LogLevel=0
MaxFLAK=10
AirIntensity=Medium
GroundIntensity=Low
MaxBomberSkill=0
CampaignMissions=Normal
CampaignAI=Normal
CampaignLength=VeryLong
CampaignDifficulty=Normal
SlowFire=50
PromotionRate=1.9
Language=English
noWounded
FriendlyAAASkill=3
FriendlyShipSkill=3
EnemyAAASkill=1
EnemyShipSkill=1

Which parameters should I change to reduce enemy AI fighter skill and how ?


Last questions: which is the difference between
MaxBomberSkill=0
and
MaxBomberSkill=1 (that is in the dgenpack 2.1 default dgenmod.ini file) ?

and between
SlowFire=50
and
SlowFire=1 (that is in the dgenpack 2.1 default dgenmod.ini file) ?

what does the "noWounded" parameter mean ?

are there other parameters that could be used in DGENMOD.ini ?

A great thank you for your great work !

Which parameters should I change to reduce enemy AI fighter skill and how ?

CampaignAI=Normal set to Low.

There is a more radical way.
For example, you need to change the AI ​​level in a German night fighter campaign.
Looking for the configuration of this campaign among the campaignsDEXXX.dat files in the DGen folder.
This file is campaignsDE110.dat. It looks like this

Western Front - Luftwaffe Night Fighter Pilot
Luftwaffe Night Fighter Pilot Western Front Dynamic Campaign.
ETO42_Europe_05_30_HB Reich Defense: Spring of 1942. May 30 - August 15.
ETO43_Europe_06_01_NF Reich Defense: Spring of 1943. June 1 - August 31.

We see that the campaign consists of two sub-campaigns. Each sub-campaign is configured with XXX_XXX_XXX.DB files.
We are looking for a section [Skill] in the file ETO42_Europe_05_30_HB.DB. It looks like this

[Skill]
Blue:A20,V20,N60 = 20% of aces, 20% of veterans, 60% of newbies.
Red:A40,V40,N20 = 40% of aces, 40% of veterans, 20% of newbies.

Next, we change the ratio at our discretion.

 @ vch34278  Thank you for your answer about the "radical way"

... I am beginning to understand more about Dgen.


What exactly does CampaignAI=low ?
Does it reduce the skill of enemy AI or increase friendly or reduce the number of enemy's planes?

Maybe you have a manual/tutorial which explain all the parameters and values of dgenmod.ini (maxbomberskill, slowfire, nowounded, etc) ?

Hi Motorhead. Regarding the Luftwaffe Fighter South which was a stock game career the following happened
Hello larschance! Probably, you talking about old stock campaigns? I do not have "luftwaffe fighter south campaign". Instead of this, i have "Army Group «South» - Fighter Pilot", but this campaign added only in 3.0. Must tells you, my campaign is not compatible with any old or new dynamic campaigns. In your DGen folder only files of my campaign can be.

7. The following Air Forces have campaigns listed (yours and a few stock) and I can list those for you if it helps
Finland 3, France3, Germany23, IJN 5, Italy 4, NL Dutch 1, RAAF 3, RAF 20, RN 2, RNZAF 1, Romania 1, Slovakia 2, USAAF 22, USMC 5, USN 20, VVS 31.
The same thing, probably all of this are old campaigns (not mine). I do not have Finland, Romania and Slovakia campaigns at this moment.

Anyway there are many of Motorheads campaigns to enjoy it seems. Note that some of the campaigns that come with the stock game have somehow disappeared with DGen Mod Pack overrride.
Sure - campaign is not compatible ;)
