VPMod and DGEN
« on: February 02, 2019, 07:54:58 AM »

 I have an excellent guide to install DGEN into Bat and have it working well but there qare steps I can't figure out how to do in VPMod  These are the steps..I don't see a dgen folder in VPMod..Reading posts I figure DGEN works in VPMod but can't figure out how to follow these steps,,As always thank you for any help

4. Make a safe copy of your "IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\DGen" folder!

5. Copy all files from "IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\IL2DCG\Data\dgen" in your "IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\DGen" folder!

6. Copy all files from "IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\IL2DCG\Data\aces" in your "IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\DGen\aces" folder!

7. Now, make a shortcut of the  "IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\IL2DCG\il2dcg.exe" on your Desktop and name it e.g. "DCG for Mods"

8. Double click the new shortcut and the first thing you see, is a friendly welcome window! Press

DGEN is the stock IL2 dynamic campaign generator. DCG is Paul Lowengrin's Dynamic campaign generator. DCG is an addon that can either replace or be used in conjunction with DGEN.

DGEN comes with VPmodpack and comes with a comprehensive collection of DGEN campaigns. It looks like what you are trying to do, or have done (I am not sure which from your post), is install DCG into VPmodpack. The instructions you are using for BAT (Lonestar's Install guide?) will work the same for VPmodpack. Once you have DCG installed you can toggle between using DCG and DGEN by choosing Mode-->Replace Career Generation from the DCG main menu. When that option is checked you are running DCG; when unchecked you are running DGEN.

Yes, I have it working in both myself. Installation is the same. No apology necessary.
