How to solve problems - tutorial ?
« on: April 20, 2019, 09:48:44 AM »

Hi I am not a real noob on IL2 ... btw not an expert at all.

But I am a real noob when it comes to campaing/mission problems.

I read about the log and I read here and there some tips in various threads in these months but not very clear to me the "how to" in case of errors.

What I ask you is if there is a kind of tutorial on what to do, something like the great tutorials about creating missions.

In the last few months, maybe because I still like old versions of the sim and/or old campaigns I had many errors starting campaigns or missions:
- beep generating campaigns
- planes exploding at the start of a mission
- only landscape (no planes) at the start of the mission
- planes starting in the sea in sea missions

IL2 is by large the best sim and I would like to enter the mechanics of it (sorry for my English) ... just would like to know what to do to find/solve the problem without coming here to ask for every problem should I encounter

I think it is always a good idea to go back to the campaign builder if the person is available. Otherwise:

- beep generating campaigns
This would probably happen with a DGEN or DCG campaign. DGEN/DCG is not properly setup or configured.

- planes exploding at the start of a mission
Almost always a loudout (weapon selection) in the mission file that is not in the game. You can find the exact cause by looking in the log.lst file. You will see an entry like this: java.lang.RuntimeException: Weapon set '1xmk13' not registered in air.A_20C

- only landscape (no planes) at the start of the mission
Most likely no aircraft has the player box checked. It can also be the same as the exploding plane issue above.

- planes starting in the sea in sea missions
Most likely the squadron is not properly attached to an aircraft carrier in the mission, or something has cause the carrier to disappear. Can also be cause by a change in the map, but this is uncommon.
