Summer 1939

Syldavia and Borduria, two small neighbouring countries between the sea and the Zymylpathian mountains. Their relations have always been cold at the best and throughout the centuries they have warred several times. And once again a war is imminent.

Syldavia is quite developed in aviation technology. They design and build their own quite advanced Dragonfly fighters in their R&D Centre in Sprodj.  However, production of Dragonflies is limited, so they mostly use equipment obtained from western allies, mostly Great Britain, USA and the Netherlands.

In Borduria there was a nazi coup d'etat in 1937. After that they have bought military equipment from Germany only. Germans have sold them mostly equipment they don't need, such as out-of-date models and ex-Czechoslovakian equipment. Before coup d'etat Borduria was quite close with Poland and they still use some old Polish equipment, too.

Both sides are short of  aircraft and they send everything they can to the front - including trainers. Both sides receive some upgrades during the war.


Available careers:

Syldavian pilot (RAF):

Dragonfly 36A       Fighter
Hawker Hurricane I   Fighter
Curtiss F6C4 Hawk   Fighter

Autumn 1945

World War 2 is over. And, once again, Syldavia and Borduria are in conflict with one another.

In WW2 Syldavia fought along the Allies and they use mostly British and American equipment - and, of course, an improved version of the Dragonfly.

Borduria fought along the Axis until they swapped side in late 1944 and came close to Soviets. During the WW2 Luftwaffe had a top secret test flight centre in Borduria.  The test flight centre and all the experimental aircraft there were left behind when the Germans left Borduria in a hurry.

Syldavian pilot (RAF):


Dragonfly 42A               Fighter
Hawker Tempest V      Fighter
Curtiss P-40N Warhawk      Fighter

NOTE:
Syldavia = RAF
Borduria = Luftwaffe


Syldavian ranks, names and awards are British and Bordurian ranks, names and awards are German. However, roundels are correct and  radio chatter is in Syldavian/Bordurian.

That is the best I can do. Sorry. If you know how to make Syldavia and Borduria to work as their own nations in DCG please let me know.

Other German and RAF squadrons work normally.


NOTE 2:

Some AI squadrons are updated by  timetable commands during Syldavia-Borduria 1939 campaign and all of them are updated when campaign switches from Syldavia-Borduria 1939 to Syldavia-Borduria 1945. However, there are no updates for player squadron.  Please use DCG squadron editor to upgrade your plane to whatever you want.

B.A.T Expansion pack 12 or later

Thanks for your work. Now I understand the purpose of those Dragonflies.  :)

Interesting scenario which makes me think that I should try DCG at last.

Hi Shakaali! Would it be possible to update this to BAT 4.2? I am trying to play it as my beloved transporter but am suffering

pink grounded aircraft at the start,
also a complaint that air.Delfin is missing [needs to be dismissed twice].
Also only one squadron appears in the drop down box under both sides career selection page which seems unlike all your other campaigns
also no airports shown on briefing or debrief map [do appear on in game map]

I understand these are older campaigns you might not have much interest in atm so no pressure, but I am going through your various DCG packages because I want to fly support and level bombing etc, and if I find any bugs I will post them in the appropriate topics, if that's cool? Looking forward to flying the Super Electra as I just bought the standard Electra for MSFS! ;D

Thanks in advance! :D

PS: I didn't experience any CTD or similar so I haven't attached a log, but if you would need it please let me know.

Hello.

Unfortunately DCG 3.49 is not compatible compatible with DCG 3.50. 

However, it should be quite easy to fix. I'm quite busy IRL at the moment, but I'll take a look as soon as I have enough time on my hands.

AHAHH! So that's where the issue is? I am more than happy to run two IL2DCG folders as a workaround, thank you mate! Good luck with the IRL it's always a wrench. Grateful for your reply. I was under the impression that 3.50 was back compatible but that is wishful thinking ;) Do I still need the CUP compatibility patch with 3.49 please, or is it not necessary with BAT? ty

Unfortunately DCG 3.49 is not compatible compatible with DCG 3.50. 

Sorry. That is BS.

There was a major change in DCG file structure, but it took place before 3.49, not after it as I remembered.

Therefore, campaigns created with 3.49 are compatible with 3.50 but campaigns created with 3.48 or earlier are not.

However, I'll check this when possible.

There is no rush, I don't want to put any pressure on at all just if I can be helpful in some way to ensure your catalogue is fully working I would feel like I'm doing gods work lol :P I'm really pleased to know I can go back to one DCG folder [3.50] and attempt all my troubleshooting with just one, as much more folder swapping would drive me fully round the bend! I'm not trying to run anything 3.48 or earlier so no worries there. Thanks again for your help!


EDIT: log provided, testing a different career this time still loadout error, dcg 3.50

Updated link in the first post. Should work now.

Corrected:

- Payloads.dcg was missing from the download
- There is no more Grumman Delfin in WAW, replaced with Gloster Sea Gladiator
