There must be some bugs in EnjoyR's Dgen patch because, I only changed a few campaigns (NWEurope, Stgrad, Burma). I tested the  (AAW) Murmansk Hurricane campaign and it generated a working mission.
The (Generic ETO) RAF 1939-1945 subcampaigns are indeed missing a file, DGen\1940_Ardennes.DB.
Link to that camapign seems to be dead: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,20115.0.html so I dont know how to locate that file or if its even exists. Btw checking you DgenERROR.log is always a good idea.

...

Also subbed in DCG to add some extra campaigns to the sim.

Can anyone confirm if the DCG Battle of Britain Campaign that vpmedia suggested will work with the new modpack? It was made specifically for either UP or HSFX and I didn't want to mess up my install by trying it. Would be nice to do a proper BoB campaign with such an excellent map!

I had a quick look at the files for LoneStar67's v1.2 BoB DCG campaign and everything it needs should be in VP Modpack. There was a v1.3 for DBW but I think the first of the four sub-campaigns uses some ships that VP Modpack does not include.

The DBW mod ships were put into the main Ships class, the ShipPack2/3 which is available to download for 4.12 added these ships into a separate ShipPack class.

DBW: ships.Ship$Tanker1
VP modpack: ships.ShipPack$Tanker1

Thanks for reply.


Working link for Boelcke Westfront campaign:

http://www.axis-and-allies-paintworks.com/download.php?view.715

Working link for Murmansk campaign:
(I am not sure is this one that You included).
http://www.axis-and-allies-paintworks.com/download.php?view.839
(there is instruction in there how to make Murmansk campaign work).

I ll check my DGEN error log and post it when I get back home from work.

I am not dgen savy so I will not attempt to quick fix it on my own.


If I am not mistaken 1940_Ardennes.DB. is a map from old payware BOE addon I actually have that addon on CD so I ll copy that file to my dgen folder, of caurse I ll back up it first and sea what happens.


On a plus side I am really enjoy playing your modified dgen Burma campaigns. Great work VPMEDIA.

I was also able to play with VPMODPACK after few simple modifications great historical campaign "ComAirSols: USMC Operation Toenails " by DixieCapt Campaign designed for UP3 but runs great with your pack. I had a blast with it.

Hi everyone,

First of all, thank's a lot to you vpmedia for this excellent modpack: working perfectly, with more planes than ever in campaigns, even with my old rig!
About your DGen campain problems: I tried the Murmansk one for Bf110 Luftwaffe: same problem than CaptSopwith reported here: my DGen log says "Ostfront not installed" - Ostfront beeing a payware campaign addon as Battle over Europe is, as you may know. Look here: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=15387.12.
So I suppose there should at least be some files, or files names, missing so to play those campaigns. There should be a way to fix those problem, as some of the adon campaigns made by some moders, like the ones likend by BoloG here, are totally playable on those maps in modded il2.
About the "DGen\1940_Ardennes.DB" missing for the Generic ETO RAF campaigns, give me some time: I still have the Battle over Europe addon, still have the original dvd - I must have this file somewhere in one of my old Il2 installs saved on external hdd.
Cheers!

I added the Dgen stuff ~2 years ago when I installed 4.12, so I do not remember much about the whole process, sorry. :)

The missing DB file can not be from BoE because the campaign is for stock dgen and I see that file in this version (http://www.axis-and-allies-paintworks.com/download.php?view.715) which isnt the one in EnjoyR's patch because it says its Westfront campaign 1.3 for HSFX 6 . There was an other version: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=1972. <-here, it says West Front Campaigns 2.11.

Anyway, I tried to add the missing files indicated in the error log, but the whole thing freezes when I do so. Fixing dgen bugs was never my strongpoint. What you can do is throw out my Dgen folder and start from scratch, here's a clean stock dgen folder minus the pilot portraits: https://ulozto.net/x6jP1ura/stock-dgen-7z

I'm familiar with that addon because I worked on Ostfront VVS skins in official capacity.

It seems that I must have screwed up some dgen update but I dont know how because the Murmansk Bf 110 campaign generates mission in my install. I'll do more investigation.

Thanks fo response VPMEDIA, I am not an expert but I ve searched that Murmansk campaign in google and I ve found this old entry in ubi forum:

http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/575275-More-Campaigns-Forums

According to this, that Murmansk campaign requires Ostfront and probably BOE addon.

My take on this is that, while compiling the modpack You perhaps by mistake used Enjoyer patch for game with BOE and Ostfront insteed that one for the vanilla game. Or I could be totally wrong.

@vegetarian: One simple thing, to get campaign running You must delete that files:

Slot_A1.mis, Slot_A2.mis and it s propertieses files and remove that missions entries from cmpaign.ini file (open it with notepad and save after deleting entries). Change each mission ru.properties files names to properties if You using english version of the game so the briefing texts could load in map screen. That s it, after that go fly.

Thank you for the feedback BoloG, much appreciated. I will try it out when I get home. Might also be a good opportunity to try out CWatsons revised F4U flight model.

Cheers
