This looks fantastic Shakaali - congratulations. I like my campaigns to be short and sweet, so I think I will fly in 226 Squadron  :)

Thanks guys   :D

I noticed a small error.  :-[

One of the Zerströrer squadrons in master mission file and in the post above is II/ZG 26 but in DGEN file and in timetable there is I/ZG 26
Corrected now in the download files, so downloads from now on are correct.

If you downloaded the files earlier, it doesn't make a big difference: the AI II/ZG 26 is missing and there is AI I/ZG 26 instead flying Bf-110 C-1 from a random airfield.
If you choose to fly I/ZG 26 you will end up in a random airfield.

I suggest not to correct it if you are in mid-campaign, but before you start the campaign you can:

1. Open file (il2 folder)/DGEN/squadronsDE1.dat in Notepad (or similar) and change line
       ZG26_I
       to
       ZG26_II
2. Open Battle Of France/Timetable.dcg in Notepad (or similar) and change line
      19400510 MoveSquad ZG26_I0 Krefeld_Airfield
      to
      19400510 MoveSquad ZG26_II0 Krefeld_Airfield

Sorry 'bout that.

Hey ! Thanks for this Campaign ! I can't wait to fly my country's birds !

However, when I start a mission, it runs really, REALLY slow...

My computer isn't that slow though...

Thanks, Segasensei.

Have you tried other DCG campaigns? Do they run OK? Does it get any better once you get airbourne? Does this happen in every mission?

There are 38 squadrons in this campaign, so it is quite heavy. You may try opening your DCG panel and lowering "Squadron Density"  and/or "Maximum Flights/Squadron" to reduce the number of active planes.

Thanks for your answer.

This is the first campaign i try with DCG. I use 3.48 since I can't find the latest beta anywhere... I'll try lowering the squadron sizes.

Edit: I just lowered squadron size, it worked !

Hey, I have recently gotten into Il-2 again and decided to download this campaign. I followed the instructions as well as I could. But whenever I begin a mission all the planes just explode. Does anybody know what is going on?

Mr9million, aircraft exploding on mission start is usually caused by DCG trying to load aircraft loadouts that are not present in current IL2 installation.

That should not happen if you use BAT 3.3 or 3.4 and dcg files supplied with this campaign.  If the problem continues, post log: https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,13457.0.html
