Requirements:

B.A.T. v4.2.2
DCG 3.50 beta  (https://forum.jg1.org/forum/68-dcg-announcements/)

Installation:

Decompress the Operation Goodwood.rar into your DCG home directory.
Make a backup of the DGEN directory in you IL-2 game directory 
Copy Dgen, Missions & Paintschemes folders from your Operation Goodwood folder and paste them in your IL-2 game directory. Overwrite if prompted.
Start DCG, select Optional Third Party Data Folder.
Navigate to the Operation Goodwood folder and select allcampaigns.dcg
Select "Replace Career Generator (DGen)" in the DCG main screen.
Select Off Line Career (Full Auto-Generation Mode) in the DCG main screen.
Launch Il-2 WAW module and select one of the above-mentioned careers.


Recommended DCG Settings:

Air Starts: On
Delayed Start Times: On
Historical Production Dates: Off


Note:

There is an error that sometimes happens if BAT has too many skin folders for DCG to handle. DCG has a weird way of regocnizing aircraft by its skin folder and it was created a long time ago when number of aircraft was significantly smaller than today. The error should have been corrected, but it still pops up every once in the while preventing the campaign from launching.

However, there is a walkaround. Go to PaintSchemes and rename Skins folder (eg. Skins_Backup. Then  copy the Skins folder fro this package to the PaintSchemes. Later on if you need skin folder for another aircraft you can copy it from Skins_Backup to Skins, or if you install another DCG campaign you can install the skins from the campaign.
