B.A.T. V3.0 CHECKPOINT CHARLIE
« on: August 09, 2017, 06:57:44 PM »

**************************************************************

B.A.T. EXPANSION PACK 'CHECKPOINT CHARLIE'

WITH SUPER EASY INSTALL.EXE

**************************************************************



DOWNLOAD ALL SEVEN PARTS + EXE AND PLACE INTO A COMMON FOLDER

This dedicated B.A.T. Expansion 'CHECKPOINT CHARLIE' comprises all B.A.T. Expansions from Install to Expansion Twelve.  Just run BAT Checkpoint Charlie Install.exe to setup Expansion Twelve.

'CHECKPOINT CHARLIE' also acts as a full B.A.T. backup.  Running the BAT Checkpoint Charlie Install.exe at any time will clean and reset your B.A.T. install to Expansion Twelve - Version 3.0.

**************************************************************

B.A.T. V3.0 - CHECKPOINT CHARLIE

The original B.A.T. is very easy to install:

Il2/FB + SAS 412 Mega-Patch + B.A.T.EXE

Subsequent Expansions to B.A.T. encompassed numerous changes to SASEngineMOD and several other upgrades that were not totally easy for everyone to follow and install.

At B.A.T. we never leave anyone behind...

**************************************************************

EVERY B.A.T. EXPANSION PACK - ALL IN ONE INSTALLER



CHECKPOINT CHARLIE comprises ALL of the expansions following the original B.A.T. Install and is installed with another super easy executable.

CHECKPOINT CHARLIE is also a FULL BACKUP and a RESTORE POINT

Whatever level you are at with B.A.T. - Running CHECKPOINT CHARLIE will clean out your install and update it to the most current level.

The new full B.A.T. is again very easy to install:

Il2/FB + SAS 412 Mega-Patch + B.A.T.EXE + CHECKPOINT CHARLIE

From now on all B.A.T. Expansions will be complete and come with their own installers.  Nobody gets left behind.

The new slimline B.A.T. Manual covers the EASY INSTALL in the first few pages.  If you already run B.A.T. then get CHECKPOINT CHARLIE and run it for the full update to the latest level.

Subsequent expansions will assume that you have done this.

Point to your BAT Install and wait for the Installer to complete the task.

From now on each B.A.T. Expansion, Operation Sealion is next, will be a complete Restore Point with its own Executable.

HUGE KUDOS to SAS~Storebror for creating the B.A.T. Installer and Torrents

TORRENTS:

**************************************************************

B.A.T. INSTANT LOG FILES

Classes-!SAS-InstantLog was inadvertently left out of the main mod folders.  This has no impact on B.A.T. except that your log capability is compromised.  This patch will simply add Classes-!SAS-InstantLog back into your mod folders.

You can do this anytime, it doesn't effect anything else and it is not even mandatory, you don't have to have them.

The next B.A.T. expansion will correct this minor omission.

Once again, thank you Monty for the time and effort you have put into making this the best flight sim of all time!!  Your work is amazing!!

I have BAT installed up to expansion pack 12, and try to keep the game current.  I also have a history of DOF campaigns completed, along with one currently in progress.  When you mention that Checkpoint Charlie will clean and restore up to expansion pack 12, will my campaign histories and current game in progress remain intact after the install, or will it bring me to a clean install where everything is lost?

It will be fine Ron. Mission files and campaign records are not touched.  However, the folder structure is altered and much improved, so please bite the bullet and 'get her done', it will be worth it, even for the old hands.  Plus this is a safe permanent backup following on from the initial install, and SAS~Storebror has done the torrents as well.

I'm getting a installer error when it tries to read the 7th part, stating that the checksum value is wrong

I noticed this mentioned in the BAT txt file provided with the .exe, so is there a repaired link planned?

Just wondering

Oh yes... an old installer made it into the release post, thanks for the heads up Hucke ;)
I've updated the first post with a link to the correct installer, here it is again to be on the safe side:

Torrent downloaders are not affected by this, they have the right installer already.

Thanks, Monty !

Question : I have BAT installed until part 12, and working well. As I have installed a few more things, do I need this checkpoint ?

Thanks in advance !

Checkpoint Charlie is the next evolutionary step of BAT, that's why it's called "BAT 3.0" (compared to EP12 which is "BAT 2.0").
It uses a different mod folder structure ("#DOF3", "#TGA3", "#WAW3" and "#JTW3" instead of "#<...>2" folders), so the answer for those who have customized their BAT installation is:
Backup your modified files in a safe place and re-introduce them to BAT 3.0 after installing Checkpoint Charlie.
Or even better: After having updated to Checkpoint Charlie, update further to Operation Sealion ("BAT 3.1") and reinstall your mods there.

Please note that from BAT 3.0 on, all patches will be "self contained" Checkpoints, meaning that when you install these patches using the Installer shipped with them, it will wipe your old "#DOF2", "#TGA2", "#WAW2", "#JTW2", "#DOF3", "#TGA3", "#WAW3" and "#JTW3" before putting the new "self contained" ones in place.
This is to ensure a hassle-free installation for less experienced users (like me).

Thanks for the new link and tidy up Mike.  I am convinced that Mediafire did not fully update our uploads, we had a few versions of the installer before it was finalised.  :-[  Never mind, its all good now and the new torrents also make B.A.T. THE EASIEST THING IN THE WORLD! (apart from my sister) - (who said that?)

For some reason AVG is not happy with the installer file, and the pc tells me windows cannot access the specified device path or file ???
