MissionProCombo PLUS v1.8.2
« on: August 23, 2019, 09:26:47 AM »


MissionProCombo PLUS v1.8.2
~ for IL-2 1946 4.12.2 ~





~ CREDITS ~

BENITOMUSO and all that came before him. Here is what PAL/Pablo/benitomuso has to say about his MissionProCombo for 4.12:

Quote
Credits for QMBPro: Josse, FatCat and SAS. To CirX for being my Beta Tester and encouraging me to follow with these projects.
Special thanks to Diego (Sir Galahad) who helped me to debug the MOD to this final version.
Malone for his suggestion of the Country field for the flight.

Credits for MissionPro: CirX from SAS and special thanks and compliments to Andy (Vampire Pilot) who helped me a lot to debug the MOD and make this new release clean, fully functional and stable.

Credits for FMBPlus+: to the author / authors of the original FMBPlus who I never could find who are (if someone tells me I will amend this empty space).

Thank you benitomuso for your continued effort with this jewel, and thank you vampire_pilot for beta-testing MissionProCombo PLUS!


~ INTRODUCTION ~

What started as an attempt to improve a couple of things ended up in a complete revision on MissionProCombo for 4.12 by benitomuso. Almost all MissionProCombo classes got updated and even more classes were added to the mix. It is impossible to list the hundreds of changes that went everywhere: some are minimal, some considerably large. The source code has changed a lot in many areas and while you won't see internal changes explained anywhere, the whole experience is greatly improved.

Note that I used 4.13 sources whenever possible and therefore MissionProCombo PLUS takes 4.12 players closer to 4.13. Still, much of the base code is 4.12. At a glance, the mod seems to work in 4.13 but I didn't test it thoroughly. If you use MissionProCombo PLUS in 4.13, and if it all works, know that you no longer are in 4.13. I don't support 4.13 or later versions, the fact that my mods work in versions other than 4.12 is pure coincidence.

The minimum configuration I support in my mods is 1280x960, English language. Some items won't fit in smaller screens. Good care was put to maintain compatibility with any 4.12 game of any kind. The mod will work in a bare-bones ModAct as well as in B.A.T. (the mod is already built in BAT), VP-Modpack and other packs based on 4.12.


~ QUICK MISSION BUILDER ~
  • New Flight Position drop down. Available roles are: Flight Leader (default) / Flight Wingman / Element Leader / Element Wingman
  • You can now set any date from 01.01.1900 to present.
  • New "Wind" drop down: wind direction, wind velocity, gust and turbulence values will be randomly set in accordance with the option selected.
  • Random Flights: Press the "Random" button and it will randomize the number of aircraft per flight, skill, planes, loadouts, country (now called Air Force). If you click Random in the main page, it will only randomize the first 8 Flights. If you click Random in the second ("Next" button) page, it will randomize all Flights in 16-Flights missions.



  • Darker Red and Blue font colors.
  • Drop downs are considerably larger.
  • Removed aircraft categories when sort order is set to "Alphabetical".



Most of the items have been re-positioned to make the best use of available space. Some dropdowns were removed and their functionality implemented in a different way.

The highlight of v1.8 is the new "Carrier-based" toggle you will find in QMB. Switch it on and QMB will display a list of aircraft equipped with tailhooks. Set up carrier-related quick missions in a breeze:



When enabling the Carrier-based list QMB must be partially reset but this will not happen when you switch the toggle off. Setup Carrier-based aircraft first, turn the toggle off, and set up other aircraft.

About the "Parachutes" toggle found in the "Next" screen: Mission creators (not players) can decide whether pilots / crew bail out or not. There's a tick box for each flight in FMB. Parachutes, according to benitomuso, impact FPS. When the option is disabled, pilots / crew won't bail out (they crash with the plane) and therefore there won't be parachutes around eating resources. I left the "Parachutes On" option in QMB because players can configure up to 64 aircraft and it can be useful but I opted to remove the option from campaigns and single missions to respect mission-creator decisions.


~ ARMING SCREEN ~




New in v1.3 - More control over the aircraft viewer:

- Right click on the left side of the window to rotate the object to the left by 45 degrees.
- Right click on the right side of the window to rotate the object to the right by 45 degrees.
- Right click to reset the view when the object is in animation mode.

In addition, the view does no longer reset when you change aircraft.



I also added a random button to the Arming window (QMB and Single Mission modes only). When you click Random, a plane and its loadouts will be randomly selected.


~ SINGLE MISSIONS ~

MissionProCombo PLUS implements a new "Folder" dropdown, a feature intended for modular installs such as B.A.T. and VP-Modpack + JetWar add-on. You can create as many new "Missions/Single XXX" folders as you like. The only rule being new folders must begin with "Single". Valid Examples:
  • Missions/SingleNewProject
  • Missions/Single New Project
  • Missions/Single (New-Project)
The stock "Missions/Single" folder is sacred. Do not delete it. Do not rename it. The "Missions/Single" folder stores backgrounds and other files the rest of the "Single" folders feed from. The built-in LastMission.mis file gets saved to the "Missions/Single" folder.

You do not need to create "Country" folders if you don't have missions for that country. Mission folders and mission files can have spaces. Mission files must be inside their own Mission folder and the Mission folder must be inside a Country folder.



  • Titles: Toggle up to see mission titles. Toggle down to see mission filenames.
  • Random: A mission will be randomly selected.
  • More space for briefing text.The screen now displays: Mission title (or filename if the title is not set) + 2 line breaks + short description + 3 line breaks + long description.
B.A.T. users: don't forget to check the Single Mission Community Packs!


~ MISSION BRIEFINGS ~

Briefing screens have been greatly improved both in Single and in (offline) Campaign modes. We now have the name of the map at the top, and the dropdowns have been enlarged and enhanced. One of the highlights of MissionProCombo PLUS is that you can easily change the date of the mission. Starting now, mission creators (and the player) can set any date from 01.01.1900 to present-day in any mission.

Campaigns will sometimes play differently depending on your Rank. A mission can be created with a particular Flight/Role in mind but you may very well end up assigned to a different Flight with a different role. There is nothing wrong with the built-in Rank management, but it is difficult for campaign creators to predict all possible outcomes.

In "Single Mission" mode you are free to fly in any Flight but in Campaign mode you will always fly in a predetermined Flight, and regardless of your choices. You can toy around with the options and change whatever you like but you will always end up in the preselected Flight that best matches your current Rank.



When playing static campaigns you will now notice a new "Unlock" button. The reset button will reload a mission but the Unlock button will allow you to play the mission the way it was originally created. In example, your Rank gets you assigned to the third Flight in a squadron and there is nothing you can do to change it except... try pressing the Unlock button and you might get assigned to the first Flight and be able to lead the squadron.

The new Unlock button will load the mission in its original format, the way the mission author created it. Once you unlock a mission, the reset button will just reload the unlocked mission. It is safe to change anything. Play around with the options and set up missions to your liking, the reset button will always be there to set things back on track.


~ STARTING A CAMPAIGN ~

The "New Campaign" screen has been completely reviewed and the GUI reworked. Some stock bugs and annoyances were also squashed.

- Code reviewed / GUI reworked.
- Static campaigns are listed first and DGen campaigns last.
- New "Low Rank" warning and "Difficulty Settings" tip.



The game will no longer reset user difficulty settings!

When you launch IL-2 and go directly to the New Campaign screen, the game would load the default difficulty settings instead of user settings. Why this was coded this way shall remain a mystery. Starting with v1.7, MissionProCombo-PLUS will always load user settings when entering the New Campaign screen. This has been a long overdue annoyance that is now resolved.


~ DIFFICULTY SETTINGS ~

You can now save your custom difficulty and restore the settings with one click. Custom difficulty settings are saved to the user/pilot profile.




~ FULL MISSION BUILDER ~
  • Added save dialog to the Recent Missions menu.
  • Larger "Load Mission" window. Suitable for 1280x960 resolutions and up. The window gets resized at lower resolutions.
  • Mission Description fields (Name/Short/Brief) get mixed up upon loading several different missions. Reverted to stock 4.12.2 class.
  • Doubled the size of the Mission Description window.
  • New FMB Default Shortcuts menu entry (View > FMB Controls)



  • Changed how the F.M.B. button (in QMB and in Single Missions) interacts with the game. It all flows naturally now.
  • "Loading Mission" info window got stuck in some situations. Removed.
  • New "Player aircraft not set" check/warning when clicking the Play menu entry.
  • "File" menu reordered. "Unlocked FMB" removed. New "Clear Recent" entry. QMB missions and the LastMission file are not saved to the recent missions menu.
  • You can now set any date from 01.01.1900 to present.
  • New icon size choices.

    all flows naturally now.

    ARMING SCREEN

  - Removed aircraft categories when sort order is set to "Alphabetical" in QMB.
  - Slightly modified "Enhanced Arming Gui" by Dreamk:
    https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,51988.0.html

    QUICK MISSION BUILDER
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  - Dropdowns are considerably larger.
  - New Flight Position dropdown. Available roles are:
    Flight Leader (default) / Flight Wingman / Element Leader /Element Wingman
  - Random Flights: Press the "Random" button and it will randomize the number of aircraft per
    flight, skill, planes, loadouts, country (now called Air Force). If you click Random in the
    main page, it will only randomize the first 8 Flights. If you click Random in the second

    randomly set in accordance with the option selected.
  - Removed aircraft categories when sort order is set to "Alphabetical".

  About the "Parachutes" toggle:

  Mission creators (not players) can decide whether pilots / crew bail out or not. There's a tick
  box for each flight in FMB. Parachutes, according to benitomuso, impact FPS. When the option is
  disabled, pilots / crew won't bail out (they crash with the plane) and therefore there won't be
  parachutes around eating resources. I left the "Parachutes On" option in QMB because players can
  configure up to 64 aircraft and it can be useful but I opted to remove the option from campaigns
  and single missions to respect mission-creator decisions.

    SINGLE MISSIONS
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  Players can now have different missions in different folders
  (thinking of modular installs such as B.A.T.)

  - THE RULES -

  1) The stock "Missions/Single" folder is sacred. Do not delete it. Do not rename it. The
     "Missions/Single" folder stores backgrounds and other files. The built-in LastMission.mis gets
     saved to your "Missions/Single" folder.

  2) You can create as many new "Missions/Single*" folders as you like. The only rule being new
     folders must begin with "Single". Valid Examples:

  - Mission/SingleNew
  - Mission/Single New
  - Mission/Single (New)

  You do not need to create "Country" folders if you don't have missions for that country. Mission
  files and mission folders can have spaces. Mission files must be inside their own Mission folder
  and the Mission folder must be inside a Country folder:

  - Right: Mission/Single New/RU/My Missions/This Mission.mis
  - Wrong: Mission/Single New/RU/This Mission.mis (you won't see this mission)

  The "Titles" toggle will switch between mission names and mission filenames.
  The "Random" button will select a mission at random. Nice feature for a sortie.

    SINGLE MISSION BRIEFINGS
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  - Added map name.
  - "Parachutes On" option removed.
  - "Player / Mission Skin" toggle removed. Use the Arming screen to set skins for your Flight.
  - Dropdowns are considerably larger.
  - You can now set any date from 01.01.1900 to present.
  - Removed aircraft categories when sort order is set to "Alphabetical" in QMB.
  - Save dialogue changed to a more straight forward approach: instead of selecting a mission file,
    click save and you will directly overwrite the current mission. Use FMB to edit other mission
    parameters.

    CAMPAIGN BRIEFINGS
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  - Added map name.
  - "Parachutes On" option removed.
  - Dropdown positions and sizes inherited from the Single Mission Briefings.
  - You can now set any date from 01.01.1900 to present.
  - Removed aircraft categories when sort order is set to "Alphabetical" in QMB.

The "new Folder dropdown" is something I waited years for.  ;D
That and all the other stuff in this mod is really great!

Many thanks for all your work!  :)

Hi Whistler is there anyway to edit the gui.ini with this new version? I cannot find a gui.ini relating to this version so assume its hard coded in one of the classfiles somewhere? I used to have a heavily edited QMB ui using the old gui.ini but a lot of the headings now no longer work.
Ie, this baby:

Code: [Select]
# --- Quick Mission Screen
quick.info                    QUICK MISSION BUILDER PRO
# ---   Written on screen
quick.YOU:                    YOUR FLIGHT:
quick.FRI:                    ALLIED:
quick.ENM:                    AXIS:

Is there a possibilty to provide an editable gui.ini for this version?
Cheers

Hi Mick,

What is it that you would like to change? I used as much existing localized content as I could but some names are hardcoded in the classfiles, yes.
