__________________________________________________________________________

All greetings!

For those who already heard about project DGen_mod and for those who yet didn't hear - I have good news!  ;) The first stage of works on the new generator is finished.

DGen_mod successfully forms the company and creates the first mission. Still it is a lot of work - the following stage "analysis of flights" (debrifing) and formation of all chain of missions. In investments result of tests of the new generator in game.

Already in this version all data for the generator is loaded from external files. It will allow to add without problems new planes and map without restrictions. Juri_JS prepares the data on the new company on which new map wasn't in DGen earlier.  ;)

To be a little bit more precise, I have created the necessary data for the Solomons maps. If everything is going according to plan, I will do a campaign for the maps.

This new dgen.exe project is a great new hope for campaign building. I hope that it will be possible sometimes to use at least some of the new maps with it. This will open many new possiblities to create new campaigns or/and older campaigns with newer and more suitible maps for ETO campaigns and it looks like for the PTO it will finaly be possible to use all the new "mod" planes.

Realy good news.

New Year and Christmas is time miracles, here and I had in the mystical image a first, almost working version of the generator.  :) It not the test version and at all a beta, but five missions successively it in a condition to create.

ATTENTION! The incomplete, fact-finding version!

http://ifolder.ru/27880075 (http://ifolder.ru/27880075)

There is no branch Pacific (the companies for this purpose theatre  won't be formed),
There are no maps of Kiev, Burma and Norway, there are no Italians.

I urgently recommend to start the given version on the SEPARATE copy of game!
Generator errors can lead to loss of all data about the dynamic companies
In a folder of the pilot!

Reports on errors yet aren't accepted - internal testing isn't finished yet.

All with coming New Year!  ;D

Same in Aviaskins.ru
Asura wrote something about "February" which google translate couldn't properly translate :D
But after umpteen years of no dgen update we can be a little patient I guess.
The only thing this Dgen project would need is a bilingual coordinator, someone who speaks russian and english or russian and german.
Asura seems to speak only russian (at least he wrote me using autotranslate), but there are surely enough russians and russian speakers around?
My russian isn't nowhere near sufficient... :(

Happens nothing, simply in Russia there was vacation.  ;D Testing a version alpha has been held, some errors are rectified. Now I have begun work on addition in the new generator of branch Pacific. Presumably, if to a course of works will prevent nothing in February there should be a beta the version of the new generator which will need all-round testing. I will keep you informed events  ;)

Good to know.
Well I used to know a thing or two about Dgen but sofar I have mostly been able to produce crashes with the new one :D
But since it is a alpha version this is natural
But the possibilities are mind boggling.
To be able to use basically everything modded in a Dgen campaign is simply great.

Btw, I don't know to what exten Asura can edit Dgen, but a 4.11 could make use of the new patrol waypoints.
Sofar, DGen always uses a triangle of Waypoints to make planes circle somewhere (CAP, escort assembly etc) this could be replaced by the new circle waypoints which are much more flexible.

All greetings! I have almost collected the Beta version of the new generator. For carrying out of the closed testing I need 3-5 volunteers capable for two-three weeks to banish some companies. Naturally they should be banished with the admission of missions, but also it is necessary to do fighting departures. Interested persons write in personal message. First five will receive the reference to the new generator. :)

After the closed testing and revealing of appreciable errors I will lay out the generator for all.

We must get ready for any eventuality. This evening, the Royal Navy will sail out from Singapore and look for enemy troopships. The RAF is to provide cover to our boats and to Singapore city, which will certainly have to face air raids in a very near future.

In the *BR.dat files there are coordinates of bridges on the map. It is necessary for formation of missions of type "Bridge attack" or "Protection of the bridge". In this case I took out data from the Starshoy code in the external file and in a code of data by bridges it was not simple. On correct they should be added, then in campaigns there will be additional missions. I will prosecute this subjects later.

installation proceedure: new dgen exe will replace old dgen exe, what of the other files? do I insert them into the dgen folder where all the campaigns are kept?

By using these new files I should be able to get the Hs 129 operational in a luftwaffe ground attack campaign, using the old dgen the Hs 129 was recognised as a red plane if set up as player flyable.

If you extract all the files in the Il-2 main directory, then a 'MOD' folder will be created in your DGen folder.

That has nothing to do with the DGen_mod but is caused by the fact that the modded game is based on the Russian version of the game. It will always select the Russian language version of the briefings, that's why you have to replace them.

The DGen_mod is not using the briefings in the DGen folder, its briefing files are in this folder "DGen\MOD\Message". If you are using mods you have to delete the *Ru.dat files in this folder and copy and then rename the *En.dat files to  *Ru.dat.

So it will not turn out! A format of messages at the new and old generator the different! At simple replacement there will be many mistakes!

It is necessary to remove the *Ru.dat files in the DGen\MOD\Message catalog and to copy the *En.dat files having changed in ????????En to Ru. Then everything will correctly work.

Right, I have tested the mission briefings by Vtrelut in the DGen\MOD\Message folder and it didn't worked. So a manual renaming is necessary.

I have corrected my first answer to avoid misunderstandings.

A question, the new messages in the mod folder of the new dgen are meant to replace the origional messages in the dgen folder?

To do this they must be ru based because all modded games run the Russian version, however if using stock 4.11 just overwrite origional message files?

Anything it is not necessary to copy. The new generator will take the necessary messages from the DGen\MOD\Message catalog. For the correct operation of the new generator with the official version of game it is simple to establish it enough (to unpack archive).

I prepare RC3 version 1.0.0.7 for release. Many mistakes and the program are corrected work quite stably. I hope next week to lay out updating. Quite probably that RC3 becomes the first high-grade version.

I understood the main idea. Unfortunately I simply won't have time for such work, all free time leaves on completion of the generator and on tests. But I am ready to consult on all questions concerning to creation of campaigns or creation of a selection of campaigns. Actually anything difficult in this case isn't present. The desire and time is just necessary. :)

As well as promised - the new version which most likely becomes release.

http://www.mediafire.com/?9m9fpnp499889tk (http://www.mediafire.com/?9m9fpnp499889tk)

By default the AllClasses.dat and AllPlanes.dat files for version 4.11.1. In the For UP3+DBW171 catalog files for version 4.10.1 + UP3 + DBW 1.71 lie. To copy files from the For UP3+DBW171 catalog in catalog \DGen\MOD enough. If you use dregy a set of spendthrifts the AllClasses.dat and AllPlanes.dat files it is necessary to edit manually.

Don't forget to remove the previous version of the generator. Successful flights! :)

Small fix, simply replace the file from archive.

got your PM

Sorry I was a bit complicated.

What I would like to have is one package where I get all the dgen campaigns ever created for this sim and it should be compatible with DBW.

Can you or somebody do such pack? (I dont have the skills to do it)

the stock dgen campaigns should work whatever your Il2 version is, but for the modded dgen campaigns it´s simply impossible to create such a pack - and more important to keep it up to date from mod pack to mod pack

Great work Asura & the Team :)

Just wanted to quickly test it. Started a new Dgen campaign (Boelcke's Kuban campaign). First it says "this campaign has already existed blabla...". Guess thats stock game. So i simply changed my starting rank - Major to Oberstleutnant. Now when I click "Generate" the button simply jumps "up" again, with no other reaction than the click noise (no Beep).

Same for other campaigns (stock).
So just wondering, are the existing campaigns actually usable for the DGen mod or do we have to wait for new ones  :-\ ?

DBW 1.71 btw. And followed install instructions, moved the Allplanes.dat and Allclasses.dat in the DGen/MOD folder.
And the readme says the error log is called Dgen_modERROR.log. I only get DGenERROR.log and DGenERROR2.log. Is that correct ?
and they say :
DGenERROR.log

What I think is that this is still the error log from the old Dgen...right ?

 
all the best and thanks again for your work !

Post by: Asura on May 18, 2012, 12:57:35 AM

Just wanted to quickly test it. Started a new Dgen campaign (Boelcke's Kuban campaign). First it says "this campaign has already existed blabla...". Guess thats stock game. So i simply changed my starting rank - Major to Oberstleutnant. Now when I click "Generate" the button simply jumps "up" again, with no other reaction than the click noise (no Beep).

Same for other campaigns (stock).

Let's understand... Absence Dgen_modERROR.log speaks about that that errors of the new generator weren't. DGen_mod.log, Dgen_mod2.log or Dgen_mod3.log you have files?

Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Boelcke on May 18, 2012, 01:14:50 AM
@ Milantarik:

check for the Dgen_modERROR.log file, it´s the error file for the mod dgen.exe
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Asura on May 18, 2012, 01:28:43 AM
Started Boelcke's Kuban campaign at itself without problems, the game 4.11.1 version

@ Milantarik:

You corrected the planesDe¤.dat file? Very probably on a situation when names of planes in files of campaign differ from names in game (air.ini)
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Juri_JS on May 18, 2012, 01:35:52 AM
I tested the Kuban campaign too and had no problems at missions start, but I noticed a strange setting of waypoints in some missions types. I will send a detailed bug report.

I can assume that the generator isn't started at all. Look for a problem in discrepancies of names of planes between game and campaign files.

A couple questions:
Will this work with any version of the game? Just maybe with fewer features?

I have UP 2.01 and some stock versions like 4.08, 4.09, 4.10, 4.101 4.11 and 4.1101. At least I think that's about right?

Will it work with the old IL2 Stab program?

And my final question is there a Readme or some place on the net I can go to get full descriptions of changes and any newer commands and such?? I just need a lot more information.

Hi all, I have just started for the third time the Boelke (an exceptional campaign maker) the campaign "Western Front". With this new Dgen release, that I have installed, as for the instructions, I should re-start the campaign. Before it, considering the opportunity to include new maps and planes in Dgen, I would like to ask to Boelke if he think to modify his campaigns accounting for this new possibility (my dream, I am Italian, is "Italian Falcons").
Thanks immensely for your work giving so much pleasure to we all.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Asura on May 21, 2012, 12:26:19 AM
I will answer here all questions. :)

1. The generator doesn't depend on the version of game and from the version of the established additions. It can be used with any combination of MODs and versions. For correct operation of the generator it is important to have the correct lists of planes in the AllClasses.dat and AllPlanes.dat files. Each user can adjust these lists itself as to it will take in head.

2. The current list of options in the file DGen_mod.ini and syntax completely correspond to the old generator. It is possible to copy simply lines from conf.ini (section [DGen]) and you receive the same settings which you had earlier.

3. High-grade documentation is now in a stage of preparation and will be added in program release. While it isn't present is ready to answer all interesting questions. :)

i would like to convert some of my campaigns to new maps, but i doubt that i can do this on my own, it´s to much time consuming - i have to earn money like everyone here around, so my time is very sparse atm

please consinder that only my Westfront campaign was more than three months of realy hard work - and that means every free minute, even when i had worked ten or more hours a day, i worked some more hours at the evening and on every weekend on this campaign, that is something i won´t do again

only to make a new map usable for the the new dgen is work for weeks, then you have to populate the map with objects and targets and after that all you can start with campaign building - if someone volunteers to do the first two steps for canons BoB map and the Westfront map ... well that would be a point to join in for me

Hi Asura. I ve been playing around creating a new dgen campaign on the Bessarabia map for USSR. Missions are generated fine, but from the dgen log, I see that the EnemyNation parameter could not be set for this map. In every mission, all the enemy planes immediately related to the mission target are Blenheims and Sarvanto-Fokkers. Other planes flying around are the normal German planes that I expect. I guess that this parameter is hard coded into the executable, but still is there a simple way to fix it with the current dgen mod version?

New maps and new campaigns it is very good! :)

For new maps which wasn't in the generator I earlier made the file of settings - settingsNnX.dat. I give as an example files from Juri_JS campaign.

campaignsINB.dat
planesINB.dat
settingsINB.dat

Contents of the settings file:

Pacific=True                            - what branch possesses campaign (while I should keep this division)
UseParkedPlanes=True               - are used or not in campaign ParkedPlanes
UseSearchligh=False                 - to establish automatically or not fires round airfields
[EnemyNation]
SolomonsAug1942e USA            - the nation of the enemy for each sub campaign
SolomonsAug1942 USA

I think the Coral Sea files that I and many others are using are not the stock DGen files, but the ones that came with Nimitz TruePacific DGen campaigns, that reworked most of the Pacific campaign files. These files were also included in the Enjoyr Patch. Maybe that is the reason why you can't reproduce the problem with your Coral Sea files.

Yes, that caused the error. I have corrected the files. The fixed Coral Sea files can be downloaded here:
http://www.axis-and-allies-paintworks.com/Skins/Juri_JS/CoralSeaFix.zip

Given the fact that so many people are using the Enjoyr patch that has the faulty Coral Sea files, it might be a good idea to add the corrected files to the next DGen release.

I'm trying to figure out how to make hydroplanes show more often in DGen campaigns. I know that, for example, the A6M2N can play different roles:

Axis     Japan      Reconplane      A6M2N                350 3500 3500 default                                  1
Axis     Japan      Hydroplane      A6M2N                350 3500 3500 default                                  1
Axis     Japan      HyRecon         A6M2N                300 1000 1000 default                                  1
Axis     Japan      HyFighter       A6M2N                300 1000 1000 default                                  1

what are correct symbols for these roles in the ops file? Reconplane is R, like in:

oUsReconIntercept   10622:50814:A         USN 2Y         IJN 1R

HyRecon is Hr (?), and what about the HyFighter - Hf ??

Thank you Asura, that explains a lot.
I have another question - what are the limits as regards the number of planes in one mission, if any?
Can I have, for example, a line like this:
oUsDefendPort   10622:50814:A      USN 4Y 24F 12F    IJN 36dB 33F
or:
oUsDefendHQ   10622:50814:A      USN 8Y 2F 8F 4F   IJN 12F 9dB 12F 9dB

I'm trying to generate some really big formations but no luck so far - I always get 9 or 12 bombers and the same number of fighters.

Last night I turned SBD5 into a 'heavy bomber' by adding this line:
 
Allies USA   HBomber SBD5  310 3500 3500 1x1600    1

then included 39hB parameter in the ops file and - voila! - DGen generated a beautiful, staggered formation of 39 SBD 5's. What a sight! :) They still bombed their target (a bunch of tanks) as dive bombers, not level bombers, as I had feared.
If only we could have such large formations of fighters... For example, a sweep of 40+ Zeros heading down the Slot towards Guadalcanal.

It's an old problem and maybe it could be fixed in the new DGen - the system doesn't generate missions related to sea convoys. Recently I've been flying several campaigns in the Solomons, dozens of missions for both sides, and not even once got to patrol, bomb, recon, defend or attack a convoy. However, when I removed all other types of missions from the ops file and left only those related to sea convoys, the sys generated them without a problem. Is there a possible fix for this?

Also, I wish that for PTO scenarios the system generated moving ships (not stationary) which are not directly related to a given mission, like in the ETO scenarios. As it is now, a ship which is not part of a mission, will not show up.

Post by: Lagarto on June 22, 2012, 04:58:53 AM
Thank you Asura, I greatly appreciate your work!

By the way, would it be possible to give bombers (and fighter-bombers) some secondary targets to attack, after the primary target is destroyed? Now they often return loaded with bombs, passing by juicy targets.
For example, allied planes, after hitting some target in Kahili area, usually pass right over Ballale airfield, where they could drop the unused ordnance.

It's working in HSFX, and I'm flying the stock Coral Sea campaign.
I had no problems until now.

A suggestion for a future version, maybe the front line at Europe could be less linear and with sieges for medium to big cities.
Maybe not a real siege, but just the advancing army leaving back the cities that are fighting yet behind the front lines as it happened in WWII.
They will keep fighting, but the cities had more resistence than the open ground.
But don't worry about this now. ;)

Thank you very much, sir. :)

It was always possible in DGen for campaign builders to create sieges of cities, that's no big problem. Bastogne in the Ardennes campaign is an example.
I don't know the historical frontline movement on the Russian front well enough, so I can't say if there should be more such siege situations. If they are missing it is the campaign builders fault, not DGen's.

For high-quality operation of the generator very important existence of completely worked campaign with enough of land objects and key points. All operation of the generator depends on them. I decided on the following completion - I completely will process algorithm of search and selection is more whole, if my theoretical conclusions are true this completion should to increase a variety of missions substantially.

Some more ideas for future development:

1) I wish the new DGen generated takeoffs in pairs and in fours, wherever possible; this feature has been enabled in FMB recently.

2) Just for the historic accuracy, I wish DGen recognized some more units (in the [OOB] section of DB files), especially: II. and III./JG 26, IV./JG 51, II. and III./JG 300, SchG and SG units (for now there are only SG 3 and 4), some bomber units like KG 54 and KG 77, also more French units (now there’s only Normandie-Niemen), Italian units (now there’s only 356 Squadriglia).

The following considerable updating of the generator will be after completion of work on complete association of branches Pasifik and FB, work is already begun, deadlines aren't defined yet.

Adding a new map was easier than I thought, and I'm already enjoying various campaigns of my own making on the MTO map :)
I have one big request - every airstrip has a set of lights and searchlights automatically loaded on both ends. The lights are shining brightly for no reason in midday and spoil immersion. Is it possible to remove them?

Another thing - I have added quite a few historic units to the AllWing file, and most of them work without problems, but some are rejected by the system (for example II./SKG 210 or II./JG 26). The worst case is Italian squadrons, for example 96squadriglia and 97squadriglia - they are recognized as 'red' units, not 'blue', which results in a fiery explosion on the runway the moment the mission is loaded. Could this be fixed somehow?

For campaign it is possible to create the file settings[Nn][X].dat, for example settingsJaE.dat. In this file there are three obligatory parameters:

Pacific=True               - On what branch works campaigns
UseParkedPlanes=True  - The binding of airfields is used
UseSearchligh=False     - That that is necessary for you - fires aren't formed automatically. Only if they are added in templates of the land purposes of campaign.

What mistake stands out in log the file? It is necessary to check coincidence of the name to FMB.

Red or Blue side of squadrons is defined by game, the generator doesn't participate in it, it simply inserts the name. Explosions probably arise from for mistakes in fighting loading of one of mission planes. Try to remove gradually in problem mission links of planes from the *.mis file. When explosions will disappear - means you removed problem lines - it is necessary to check that in them not so.

I'm still experimenting with it. Unfortunately, the MTO map is nameless (no names on the map itself) and semi-historic/realistic (some key locations are not there, some are pure fantasy, like this little island with an airstrip in the middle of the sea), so I keep researching and adding new locations to match the frontline movement. The great thing about Asura's DGen is that one can exclude towns and airfields from the map. For example, I intentionally left out Crete and Greek coast to prevent, for example, fighters stationed in Tobruk from flying missions over Greece.

Ah, never thought of that, thank you. Like in, for example: '4973;316645;-1;Solomon_Sea1' ? Do the sea locations always have '-1' value?

Title: Re: Project DGen_mod

Sea locations in PTO campaigns use the "-1" value. I don't know if this will also work in European campaigns, if not use "1".

I think at the moment "Hr" only works in PTO. In my Norway campaign I have used "R" for seaplanes.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod

The '-1' value seems to work fine. The first mission I got was Beaufighters vs. German torpedo boats. As a sideshow, I had Italian Stukas dive-bombing ships in Tobruk harbour. What a treat!
I also manged to get rid of the damn airfield lights. As advised by Asura, I created a settings file with the following contents:

Pacific=False
UseParkedPlanes=False
UseSearchligh=False

I got an error message that 'enemy nation' was expected, so I added:
 
[EnemyNation]
MTO41 England;Australia

and so far everything works fine. I hope I'm not boring everybody with my revelations? :)

The association of branches you're working on is a great idea. I always wanted to fly more than one mission per day in the ETO scenarios. Sometimes, like in the early Barbarossa days, they flew 4-5 sorties daily.

Meanwhile, I encountered two problems. I’m working on a North Africa campaign (MTO map), which starts in mid-November 1941 (operation ‘Crusader’). The problem is that at 05:00 AM and even at 05:30 AM it’s still too dark to fly, and I have to skip such missions. Could we have an option to manually set the ‘flying hours’?

Another issue:
I always get to fly against only one type of enemy fighter, and it’s always the first from the *planes DAT file of the campaign, even though several types are listed. I thought the system would choose from the list at random. What am I doing wrong?

It exactly will be realized. But it is necessary to wait - association quickly won't manage to be made. Roughly closer to autumn.

In plans there is a point concerning control of time of day in the generator - it will be possible to operate the beginning and the termination of night, a decline and a dawn.

The main choice of planes for mission goes in a random way from section [Planes] of the corresponding *.DB file. Then as a task the configuration gets out of the *planes DAT file. Values are in documentation, the section about the AllPlanes.dat file. For the plane of the player the configuration steals up on aSoft values,
aShip, aTank, aHeavy. If for mission the specialist the type isn't necessary - the first line with plane from *planes DAT undertakes

Yes, for a start it is necessary to have this nation and the corresponding squadrons in game. There are still options as it to bypass, but they touch only MOD of versions of game at the moment. In any case now the player can't choose the new nation, except what exist in the list of the interface of dynamic campaigns.

Hi Asura

A little question: It is possible to set the cruise speed and hight in the DGen mod ini.? Like in DCG!
I ask this cause the engine management in 4.11(with HSFX) has a much more deeper impact then in 4.10.
It is nearly impossible to stay in formation with my group,then the cruise speed is set to default and I must take care of my oil & coolant temprature.

Thanks in advance. Semor

Not sure if I get you right but you can set these values in *planes DAT file of each campaign (or in ALLPlanes DAT file), for example, in the following line:

Allies   England    Fighter  HurricaneMkIIb   350 3000 3000 default   1

The '300' is the cruise speed and the '3000' is the altitude.

Title: What it takes to get drop tanks for long range missions?
Post by: greybeard on July 09, 2012, 02:37:30 AM
Notwithstanding I have a line in Planes.dat, specific of subcampaign I'm playing, with "FighterLR" as type, also for long range missions (more than 70 Km) DGen refuses to add drop tanks. As a consequence, I run often out of fuel. Of course, drop tanks ARE an available payload in weapons_ru.properties and I put them in above mentioned line of Planes.dat. I'm using DGen_MOD 1.0.1.0.

Some help?

I think I know what's wrong with Italian fighter units. The names are case-sensitive. In the AllWing file there are, among others, '96squadriglia' and '97squadriglia'. This is wrong. After I changed to 96Squadriglia and 97Squadriglia, they worked as they should.

@Semor: The stock dgen.exe used the values from the Europlanes.dat or Pacificplanes.dat, if there wasn´t  an Europlanes.dat or Pacificplanes.dat it uses the values which are hardcoded. Starshoy later created the individual xxxxxPlanes.dat files for each campaign, to override the Europlanes.dat or Pacificplanes.dat, so that each campaign can be tuned for it´s purpose.

So, a generic solution with the new dgen.exe would scrap some of the campaigns - at least all of mine.

Thanks for your tip. Unfortunately, long range patrols alternate with short range missions and scrambles. Especially during the latter, dropping tanks as soon as possible after take off, to not hamper speed gain and climb, would add a further complication to a kind of mission already enough frantic. I would set the "right" solution, if it exist.

In the meantime, I found out that removing 50 km distance setting from INI file, I quite often get auxiliary tanks, but still they miss sometimes.

Eventually, I found out that setting MissionDistance=75 gives always drop tanks to fit long range missions, when one of this latter kind is generated. I guess any value higher than 70 (the long range mission threshold) should work. Missions generated are of any distance, though, not only above the 75 km range.

Title: Kamikaze missions
Post by: greybeard on July 11, 2012, 04:44:56 AM
Hi!

As soon as I installed DGen_MOD, it attempted to generate Kamikaze escort missions in subcampaigns NewGuineaLeyte and Japan1. But something didn't work and I was always getting "beeps" and error messages (DGen_modERROR). This latter reads "Error in Select_PF_Target". I was forced to remove all "Kamikaze" roles from Planes.dat and all "Kamikaze" operations from ops files to get rid of this.

OTOH, I can't recall to have ever escorted or seen at all any Kamikaze also in stock game, just those lines seem ignored with Starshoy's DGen, whilst Asura's one TRIES to assemble that kind of missions, but with no success, at least in my install.

It is very difficult question - to make uniform settings for all planes. Operating modes of engines at all different. I would suggest to try not to use the local *planes.dat files (to clean them from the DGen catalog) and to look as the AllPlanes.dat file flight Parameters there will work are optimized under version 4.11 and all planes is.

Now mission is considered long range if distance to the purpose exceeds 70 km. In this case drop tanks are automatically added. Unfortunately while in the generator there are no data on the actual range of flight of each plane. By the way, where these data could be learned? I could add this information and ranges of flight to count individually for each plane.

The association of branches will be a big step forward. For example, it would be great to have ‘Hr’ parameter (hydrorecon) available for European scenarios (esp. MTO/Italy map or Crimea). Presently there’s little use for Ar 196 or Cant Z.506 (they’re too vulnerable as regular reconnaissance planes).

By the way, I wish the ‘HyFighter’ parameter worked, because when A6M2-N is assigned ‘F’ parameter, it will try to take off from land.

In my Home Defence campaign Kamikaze missions work without problem, as long as the correct ops file entries are used. Working entries are 1K, 2K, 3K and 4K. Higher numbers like 6K or 8K will not work. If more Kamikaze flights are needed in a mission it is possible to have more than one in an ops file line, for example "4K 2K 3Y".
All this is nothing new, it is a limitation of the old DGen by Starshoy.

A few words about the "Hr" entry to avoid misunderstandings. Hr doesn't mean hydro-recon, instead it is similar to the "Br" entry. Hr is only really usefull for scramble missions, because it will create hydroplanes that start in the air at medium distance from the airfield, like the Br entry for bombers in scramble missions.

What is needed are working HyFighter, HyRecon and maybe also HyBomber parameters that are similar to the Fighter, Reconplane and LBomber parameters of land-based planes, with the only exception that starts and landings have to be from the water.

Hi Asura,

Lagarto and myself are teaming together to create a campaign with the MTO map for your dgen.exe. I have played around with Lagartos files to check them. Problem is that dgen is always choosing the same planes in every mission. It seems that the probability numbers from the database files are ignored by it. It mostly choosed the first plane from the plane.dat files which has the demanded role.

Such situation arises when the generator doesn't find the necessary plane in the Allplanes file or in the local *planes file. For new campaigns in the settings*.dat file it is necessary to specify [EnemyNation] for each sub campaign. Plane search in the planes files is carried out on three parameters - the name, the country, type. If search successful - gets out the necessary plane, if not successful - the first of the list with the necessary nationality and type.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Lagarto on July 18, 2012, 01:08:32 AM
Gents, it's my fault, sorry  :-[ In the settings*.dat file to our campaigns I specified not one [EnemyNation] but two. Asura mentioned before in this thread that it's wrong but I just forgot to fix it. This wrong setting of mine didn't cause any errors or crashes but the line with two nations must have been simply ignored. Now, when I left only one nation, the randomization of fighters works as it should!
Still, this is fine, more or less, for Italian and German campaigns, when England can be the only [EnemyNation]. The problem persists with RAF campaigns, because there are two enemy nations: Germany and Italy. So the player can fight either against the Luftwaffe or Reggia Aeronautica, not a mix of them.

Pacific=True
UseParkedPlanes=False
UseSearchligh=True
[EnemyNation]
BurmaC England
Singapore2 Australia
Burma42 England
Singapore43 England
BurmaD1 England
BurmaD2 England
BurmaD3 England
NewGuineaLeyte USA
Japan1 USA

BTW, would be nice to have syntax of settings*.dat also in DGen User Manual and UseSearchligh would need a final ts.

Thanks for your help,

Still, this is fine, more or less, for Italian and German campaigns, when England can be the only [EnemyNation]. The problem persists with RAF campaigns, because there are two enemy nations: Germany and Italy. So the player can fight either against the Luftwaffe or Reggia Aeronautica, not a mix of them.

I plan to correct this situation in the following version. In the presence of two opponents in mission planes of three nations will be added.

We only need that two [EnemyNation] fix for our MTO campaigns :)

Ideally, there would be no limit of 'enemy nations', to allow England, Australia, France, and (in the future, hopefully) South Africa in the same campaign on the 'red' side.

Don´t want to stress this aspect anymore, but it´s also vital for all ETO campaigns, as there are at least USAAF and RAF as opponents for Luftwaffe campaigns, in early war scenarios other nations like France, Belgium and Netherlans also.

It looks there are three level of this issue:

1).Those that haven't it at all (Juri)
2).Those that have it with two nations (Lagarto)
3). Those who have it already with only one nation (me).

Odd.

In the meantime, I found this example of settings*.dat file:

Looks like the problem with settings.dat file is not only limited to 'enemy nation'. I've played a string of missions in a German campaign and I haven't seen a single Italian plane, even though the DB and planes.dat files are full of them. Perhaps there should be another parameter, something like [FriendlyNation]?
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Asura on July 23, 2012, 01:31:08 AM
I will tell honest - in the current version of the generator I solved the question "EnemyNation" on the simple. That as that worked. But yesterday the decision which will allow to solve this problem literally dreamed me  :) - possibility in the DB file in section [Planes] will set the necessary nation. For example:

[Planes]
20 C_47 Allies USA
2 C_47 Axis Japan
18 B_17G Allies USA
8 B_17G Allies England

I think it will solve all problems and will allow to receive in missions planes of all necessary nations without restrictions. In the course of association of branches I will change at once algorithm of selection of planes in mission.

I will try to make the instruction on the settings.dat file this week.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: greybeard on July 23, 2012, 02:59:51 AM
I think should be firstly understood how it works current bond between map and planes. Already current setting of [EnemyNation] seems ignored by game and it keeps taking aircrafts according to map that are missing from DB file and not belonging to specified [EnemyNation]. I mean that if this hardcoded bond isn't mastered, also your proposal to "single" by plane [EnemyNation] could fail.

Tried to understand... :)

Apropos "Leyte invasion" - the matter is that initially this map intended only for opposition Japan-Australia. I now in stock DGen received Hurricane with signs of Great Britain. This problem I will solve within a problem of "EnemyNation".

Still it is necessary to correct contents of the NewGuineaLeytePlanes.dat file - its lines should correspond to planes from section [Planes] of the NewGuineaLeyte.DB file. If in settings*.dat it is specified

[EnemyNation]
NewGuineaLeyte USA

All lines NewGuineaLeytePlanes.dat should contain "Allies USA". Now in this file there is "Allies England Fighter HurricaneMkIIc" - here it and appears in missions. The generator works on direct dependence. If EnemyNation = USA and from section [Planes] was selected the plane with the name P_38L, in the NewGuineaLeytePlanes.dat file surely there should be a line "Allies USA Fighter P_38L".

If compliance isn't found, in log the file there will be an error of "Pacific special not found" and the generator will pick up the first suitable plane from NewGuineaLeytePlanes.dat

Do you find any trouble generating the Enjoyr´s campaigns for afrika with the luftwaffe (as an example)? For me, it crashes, somethink that I found plausible given the fact that the enjoyr´s pack comes with its own version of the Dgen.exe ,  but after reading the entire thread it seems that some of you are using this same combo with success.... I´m trying the basic Enjoyr´s pack for non modded games, and then this new Dgen (last version available here).

Apropos "Leyte invasion" - the matter is that initially this map intended only for opposition Japan-Australia.

I'm glad that you realized what I mentioned in my previous message: that there is a liaison between map and nations (honestly, I did say map-planes, but you correctly focused on map-nations).

Next key point is IMHO that stock DGen bypasses this liaison, building missions in that map also with USA planes (plus the two "sticky" british Hurricanes), while DGen_MOD gets fixated with Australia and, finding no suited planes, always picks first of the list (and always same mission). This does not change, no matter what [EnemyNation] is set in settings.dat. I believe that if you do not break this DGen_MOD "fixation" for map-nations liaison, the problem will be not solved neither with settings.dat nor with planes.dat.

Concerning my own campaigns in the Enjoyr patch - my Norway campaigns and the Kiev update for the stock campaigns should work in the new DGen. There is a problem with one of the Okinawa sub-campaigns in my Home Defence campaign when Asura's DGen is used, that's why I uploaded a new campaign version for the new DGen, it can be found here:
http://www.axis-and-allies-paintworks.com/download.php?view.99

I have also started working on an update for the Norway campaigns to include some of the nice new features Asura has added to DGen.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod

the problem will be not solved neither with settings.dat nor with planes.dat.

In stock DGen there were two PacificPlanes.dat and EuroPlanes.dat files is allowed to divide planes on theaters of operations. I initially prepared the generator for association of branches and the list of planes made uniform, but there were problems with selection of planes in mission - just map-nation communication. At the moment of release of version 1.0.1.0 there was no other possibility to correct this situation and I rigidly adhered map to the nation. It solved a problem and stock version of campaigns started to work correctly. But this decision led to that author's campaigns started to behave in a queer way. I am sorry. :(

Now I have a decision which will correctly work at the incorporated version of the generator and will allow to receive in mission all necessary nations in the correct combination. I think that [EnemyNation] was makeshift and in future campaigns it is not required. Will probably change and still some things. I hope authors of campaigns will understand me correctly and won't abuse for that that it is necessary that that to complete - to alter.  :) I yet didn't finish work on the base version of the generator from which development and updating will go. Now the active stage of finishing of the generator to modern level and removal of old restrictions still proceeds. Version 1.0.1.0 simply repeated stock DGen with some new possibilities, version 2 should unite all possibilities of two branches, and here already from it development will go.

Hi Asura. :)

What is that section inside CoralSea.db called [Links]?
This section only appears in CoralSea.db and it looks like the DGen simply ignores it, maybe not.
It looks like we can make decisions based on the last mission results, could we?
If so, could you explain how it works, please?
The opsCoralSea.dat is very different too, I think it is related to the [Links] section.

opsCoralSea.dat standard for Pacific, and the section [Links] in the DB file is responsible for the connected missions. For example there was oUsReconCarrier mission if it is successful following there will be oUsAttackCarrier if oUsReconIntercept isn't successful. The code in the generator is realized and it seems should work. In detail I didn't check it.

Dgen is creating random flights, problem is that on ETO maps the random flights are always USAAF for the allies and german for the axis. So, you sometimes have for example Hurricanes or Spitfires with US markings (or other planes). On desert maps you will have Fiat´s with Luftwaffe markings and so on.  It´s a great immersion killer.

I noticed another strange thing working on templates for some campaigns - when placing static aircraft at airfields, I give Italian aircraft Italian markings, and Romanian aircraft Romanian markings, but in the game they all display German markings.

One more thing:
How to make flights from different units participating in a given mission take off from different airfields? It would look much more natural if the system could disperse them on nearby airstrips, and not queue them up in a long line on the same airfield.
I remember that in Juri’s Solomons campaigns, fighters scrambling from Russell Islands were simultaneously taking off from two airfields, so under some conditions it is possible.

I have tested random flights in my Norway campaigns and I didn't have any problems, but I remember I once had this random flight issue some years ago in the old DGen. I don't know how it works in the new DGen, but in the old one, there always needed to be planes in the db file, that had the B/Bomber, F/Fighter, R/Reconnaissance and T/Transport roles, or random flights wouldn't work correctly (can't remember if A/Attack and fB/FBomber was also needed). If DGen wasn't able to find a plane for these roles in the db file it sometimes selected one not in the db file and with a wrong nationality.

I noticed another strange thing working on templates for some campaigns - when placing static aircraft at airfields, I give Italian aircraft Italian markings, and Romanian aircraft Romanian markings, but in the game they all display German markings.

I have the same problem with RNZAF planes in my Solomons campaigns.

This is what I suggest :
To define a random flight, take a plane with a nation and unit which is defined in the campaign which is currently played.
So that you are sure that on the Eastern front or before 1942 : no US plane.
If a random plane is an Italian plane, it will have Italian markings .
...
Note that the unit should not be the player unit.

Enjoying my Normandie Niemen KurlandNov44 then dec44 campaigns and noticed the following things :
- random aircraft may be US or British, I even have a Miles Magister  !!!

Confirmed, happens everytime the French Normandie-Niemen unit is used and not only on the Kurland map. When flying the same sub-campaign as Russian pilot everything is ok.

I also noticed, that I can't fly the Polish DGen campaigns on the Berlin map, because the Polish aircraft are missing in the AllPlanes file.

EDIT:
I have added the Polish aircraft in the AllPlanes file and noticed the same problems with random flights in the Polish campaign as in the Normandie-Niemen campaign.
I guess there is something wrong with non Russian units flying for the Soviet Air Force, because random flights work correct, when I fly as Russian pilot.

  Sorry, guys; I quit.;D.

  The Enjoyr mission packs were composed so much time ago, or with such an propietary Dgen version, that most of the campaigns fail to initiate; Here, some route for some squadron is the cause; there, somethink in the map , even a stock one, doesn´t fit.... It would be needed to review almost the entire pack to have it working, and I agree that such a task is not paying any reward, since one wanting to use the Enjoyr´s packs only has to use its attached Dgen version. With the help of JSGME this is a most easy task.

  I guess is much better to take this new Dgen edition as a sort of "new dawn" for new campaigns making good use of the new maps and features, and leave those preceeding works as they were done on its time....Sorry.

Concerning the random flights, i had US Hurricanes on the northern africa map, altough there aren´t US squadrons in the DB file, so i can confirm that it´s the same situation like with the stock dgen.exe.

I will confirm once again - version 1.0.1.0 has problems with definition of a national identity of casual planes. It was made on the stock code of the generator and adapted only for stock of campaigns. In new campaigns with it there are problems as the old algorithm wasn't adjusted on free use of combinations the NATION - PLANE.

But, I already have a decision which 100 % will correct a situation. The decision universal also won't be any restrictions on the nations and planes. It is necessary to wait only the following version. ;)

 No, really, ...I came to the conclusion that the best way to take advantage of your new development is to use it as a basis for new campaigns using all the new maps, planes, that it will allow us to employ.

  Legacy  campaign sets, that involve only the components available on its time (stock), would only deserve your valuable time if you could fix them with ease. It´s not the case; I think now that anyone revisiting legacy material would have to spend an amount of time that does not pay the effort, and would divert you from the relevant task: The upgrading of the new Dgen itself.

One of the reasons why some of the old campaigns don't start in the new DGen is, that the new version is less tolerant to mistakes in the campaign files than the old Dgen. It is sometimes just a minor mistake in a single file that is causing these incompatibility issues. If they are found, a corrected version of the campaign file can be added to the next release of Asura's DGen, this was already done for a mistake in the Coral Sea subcampaigns.

Let's use the problem with the Africa campaigns you had reported as an example. I have taken a look at the files and noticed, that the campaign builder made a small mistake in the last line of the db files:

"[Operations]  <<ops41afr.dat"

There are two blanks after [Operations] instead of one. Remove one of the blanks and the campaigns will work correctly.
I have uploaded the corrected files here:
http://www.axis-and-allies-paintworks.com/Skins/Juri_JS/Africa_fix.zip

Just put them in you DGen folder. Maybe Asura can include them in his next release.

It would be a great help, if people could report other campaigns that don't start in the new Dgen, so we can check them systematically for such mistakes.

Occasionally the system seems to ignore the [Squadrons] section of the campaign's DB file and mismatches aircraft and units. For example, I get Bf 110s assigned to one of the listed JG units, and not to a ZG unit, as stated in the DB file. Not a big deal, but a little irritating. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong.

I would like to thank Asura and everyone who is involved in this Project. Thanks to you I can fly planes in campaigns that were previously unavailable!

I do not know if this error was was already mentioned. After finishing the mission I heard a beep and the screen will appear with a description next flight, but without generated missions.
At the end of the log message appears: "Error in Select_PF_Target". ???
I think, even if all the objects for this campaign were destroyed (but they weren't), DGen should create a missions in a new Theatre of Operations... instead of abandoning action. ;)

How can I fix this? Can I somehow continue this campaign? Will DGen continue working, if I will generate mission and wrote it in campaign.ini?

After the first mission then I hit mission end and like to go on to the next one,DGen crashes to desktop and gave me the following error message:

19400913

Hi guys!

I think latest DGen_mod, although using full date format, is compatible with old one. I myself played "Asia for the Asians Revisited" with it and had no glitches until penultimate subcampaign. I can suggest to Semor to download and install (if him didn't yet) my latest version, where I addressed some errors but that mentioned (also detailed in its own "Readme" file). Waiting for next DGen_mod version, which will fix those problems, I would propose to play with stock DGen, just avoiding to choose as player's plane the two non-stock ones (i.e.: Ki-44 and Ki-43-III).

I hope Asura would add his comments, by far more useful than mine, since I'm getting some similar complaints (early subcampaigns not playable) that I can't reproduce on my system (and absolutely I'm unable to guess the cause).

Yes, both can be used - unless they start with 0.

"The old YMMDD format can still be used, provided it falls into the 1 January 1941 - 31 December 1945 period".
I'm quoting Asura's manual, page 7.

Semor, do as I told you, I had a similar problem with my 1940 western campaign and changing date format fixed it.

Post by: Lagarto on August 19, 2012, 08:32:07 AM
Glad to have helped :)

I have encountered a different kind of problem in my current (Bf 109E7/Z) DGen campaign. After takeoff the AI aircraft fly to the first waypoint at a nearly stalling speed of 180 kph (I've checked via FMB), and only then they speed up to over 300 kph. On a mountainous map like Bessarabia it's suicidal because they often crash into the surrounding hills moments after takeoff. How to make them fly faster to the first waypoint?
The problem is not aircraft-specific, because I've noticed that the opposition (I-16s and MiG-3s) also barely crawl to the first waypoint.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Juri_JS on August 19, 2012, 09:48:26 AM
I think 180 kph is the standard speed for the first waypoint and it is not affected by the speed settings in the planes file.
You could try to exchange the start and landing points on the airfield. In my Solomon campaigns I had to do this too, to avoid crashing into hills when starting from some airfields.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Asura on August 20, 2012, 01:30:48 AM
At the end of the log message appears: "Error in Select_PF_Target". ???

Unfortunately, the primary plan on association of two branches led to change of balance in the generator. It sometimes leads to that the generator doesn't find unequivocal communication "mission type - the purpose" and deduces similar mistakes. I now work over radical change of these procedures and mistakes won't arise. While I would recommend not to use in ini the file the MissionDistance parameter = it strongly limits the available purposes.

Quote
How can I fix this? Can I somehow continue this campaign? Will DGen continue working, if I will generate mission and wrote it in campaign.ini?

Close game. Find in the file Dgen_modERROR.log the line ParamStr: copy its contents in a clipboard. Then in a command line start the generator manually. An example -

ParamStr: users/1/ missions/campaign/ru/DGen_F_Crimea4214/ 1 282654864639 0 4

C:\..\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\dgen.exe users/1/ missions/campaign/ru/DGen_F_Crimea4214/ 1 282654864639 0 4

Thus you repeat generator start with the last parameters and he will repeat generation of unsuccessful mission. If generation passes without mistakes - start game and load campaign.

Such situation arose in volume a case if campaign began with the version generator till 1.0.1.0, and proceeded in version 1.0.1.0. In the file! Read First.pdf is described campaign translation process under the new generator.

And as correctly wrote colleagues - 1940 can be only in a full format in section [Schedule].

Speed of 180 km/h and height of 300 meters is registered in algorithms of routes for all planes. So it was primary and I didn't begin to change these values. Whether there is in it a need? AI will run all the same into mountains... :)

I thought that giving the poor bastards a little more power on takeoff would help them survive a bit longer :) Apparently they can 'see' the obstacles ahead but they don't have enough flying speed to clear them.

In the campaign I'm presently working on, I want Luftwaffe to fly only offensive missions, but when I removed all the ‘oDeDefend’ and ‘oDePatrol’ missions from the ops file, I got a freeze-up. Strangely, when I leave only one ‘oDeDefend’ and one 'oDePatrol' mission, the system generates them over and over again, persistently ignoring dozens of other available mission types. Is there a fix for it?

EDIT: I solved the problem of the system generating only defensive missions - and it was my fault  :-[
In the DGen_mod.ini I had no entry whatsoever about MissionDistance, so apparently the system searched for targets only in the radius of the default 60 km. Now, when I put MissionDistance=250, my aircraft finally began to range out far and wide, finding other targets.

So,I try the second solution and start to edit the "old version" like Lagarto told me.But after openig the first DB file, Burma 42 in this case I look at the [Schedule] section and found this entrys:

I checked first subcampaign and actually that does not run after first mission cause the date format; I'm really sorry for this. You should edit, though, BurmaC and not Burma42 to fix.

Except association of branches I also work over this problem. To tell she is already solved more truly. Now the algorithm will use only those types of missions which are in ops file. It will be possible to add in ops file only one line - for example interception of transport planes, and these missions will be formed only. The MissionDistance parameter isn't used any more, the radius of flight and search of the purposes undertakes from FM game. Search of the purposes is carried out according to all map without a binding to key points is should provide the various directions of departures and prevention of freezing of the program. But the reasonable balance between the maintenance of ops files and the purposes on maps should remain.

Hi Asura.

I have a question, ok,maybe a very dumb question,but anyway...

I play mostly DCG stuff cause of the (as I think) better flexibility in campaign settings.From time to time I take a look at some DGen campaigns and with your fantastic work,I have a good feeling that this generator becomes a much better thing than the old ones.
I think,DCG has a great advantage in compare to the DGen,and this is the ability to track the plane losses.
(please correct me if I´m wrong at this point..)
How do I come to this? easy,I play for the moment Greybeard`s Asia for the Asian campaign and I must fight hard for my virtual life :D..but it does not matter how many enemys my squad and I kill in each mission.The frontline moves in the next mission but the same number of enemy fighters/bombers are in the air again!
In DCG,the plane losses,are tracked for the next mission by the generator(for blue & red)and you can set the resupply rate for days & weeks. I think this is much more realistic., so to speak.
Question: is this "feature" in any kind already in your new DGen,and if not,it`s possible to implement this in the future?

O yes! :) Never-ending crowds of enemies in Pacific campaigns, especially at attacks on airfield of the player it that that impossible. :) Now the mechanism of replenishment and the accounting of losses it is possible to tell doesn't work absolutely. More true it isn't present and wasn't in the old generator in a normal look. To change it not a problem and I surely I am going to make it. It is necessary to think up only the mechanism, and to realize it not so difficult. If there are offers - with pleasure will listen.

AFRange=3000 (default)
Objects in this Range around the airfield will be recognized as airfield targets and not, for example, as artillery or depot. It was necessary to add this setting for the Guadalcanal part of my Solomons campaign, because with the default setting all objects in the small American perimeter on the island were recognized as airfield objects. The setting is useful for other campaigns too, whenever an airfield is inside a small pocket, Stalingrad could be an example.

ClustersRange=2000 (default)
The distance between target clusters. If within this range a cluster already exists, a second cluster isn't formed.

ClustersRadius=1000 (defaul)
Radius in which objects are recognized as part of a target cluster.

ClustersCount=10 (default)
Number of objects that need to be in a cluster to be recognized as target for a mission. I am not sure if this is really needed for ETO campaigns, but in PTO campaigns it is useful.

... but it does not matter how many enemys my squad and I kill in each mission.The frontline moves in the next mission but the same number of enemy fighters/bombers are in the air again!

Quoting from IL-2 Manual (PF):
"In any operation, your forces will advance or retreat. The front line moves historically, but you
can speed it up or slow it down to a limited degree. If you destroy an object, it will stay
destroyed for whatever time is determined by its nature. Every destroyed plane, friendly or
hostile, reduces the total number of planes of this type, making their appearance less likely.
Lost trains and transport columns will affect the supply rate. If you kill or capture an enemy
ace, he will not appear in future battles.
"

This could be a bogus, like many stated features in IL-2. What i see editing DB files is that front movements are time-set, while in OPS files a fixed number of planes per mission is set: you may got up to ten different sets for same kind of mission, but I've no evidence they may be dynamically reduced as a consequence of previous missions results. Also, I read on some official IL-2 document about possible "downgrading" of available planes, that's to say squadrons could get replacement aircrafts of older models when current ones have been exhausted. Actually, sometimes I saw in debriefings warning about low number of planes left, but never got a "downgraded" mount.

Like most DGen campaign builders I try to create my campaigns as close to historical events as possible, so I don't want the players action to have any influence on the course of the campaign, that's the main reason why I use DGen instead of DCG.

If more player influence on campaigns depending on mission success is added in the future I would prefer that it is made optional.

::) do you think,I not..??

Both,DGen & DCG have their advantages,and the timetable command in DCG can be a helpfull tool for historical accuracy.

@ greybeard,thanks for the explanation,I didn´t take a look into the manual for ages. I play a lot of Dgen campaigns before I discoverd DCG,and for example in one of the german eastfont campaigns I fly 89 missions in full real settings (no Hud,no padlock shit,no map icons,no external view,no zoom,etc.) before a russian Lagg-3 gave me the final shot,and honestly I didn´t had the feeling that our success/fail in one misson have a notable influence (dynamicly or historical accurate) in the next one.
So,maybe you´re right and this could be a bogus, like many stated features in IL-2.But I enjoy both,DGen and DCG.

Peace folks.  ;)

Not such a hornet nest (I hope not) : For me, DCG is very good, but when I tested it, several years ago, lot of campaigns were strongly influenced by the player and the "campaign history" was completly different from the "true history"
So what I have always looked for was an option too "stop this"

I agree.

The point is that historical reenactment must happen in a realistic environment.

I mean, again quoting the manual, if you destroy a static aircraft, you would not find it again in next air base attack; usually, they're set to be "restored if wrecked". Likewise, you would see a bombed bridge remaining wrecked, that I never saw, in this game. Still the manual says you'll never see in same campaign a killed ace: I flew with JG54 all the war and never saw Hannes Trautloft! Aces are missing at all, not only after being shot down!

Anything Asura will be able to improve I think will enhance player's enjoyment or at least reduce harassment.

Yep.I must agree with you!

I mean,DCG has many advantages in timetable settings,tracking plane,pilot and ground losses etc.but lacks a historical enviroment in the campaign mechanics. For DGen it is vice versa in case of the moving frontlines and the campaign outcome,but the generator has no abillity for a historical correct plane re-supply rate and tracks the ground losses not correct as it should be.(collums,static planes,bridges etc.)
So,I think we need something,that fills the gap between this two "dynamic" generators.
As Asura noted in his post above,and if I understand this right,it is in general possible to add such mechanics to the DGen-Mod.

Btw..Boelke is right,aces only appear for the enemy.I shoot one down,last evening.  ;D

Hi,
Well, I think if you would make a dynamic campaign really 100% accurate, which incidentally does not allow the game engine, you would wonder how boring many missions would be!
A large part of the WWII pilots were many hours in the sky without to face a single opponent!
During the Battle of Saipan, the majority of Japanese pilots are launched from distant atolls, only to be shot down after many hours of flight time in a couple of minutes from the american supremacy!
Also many German pilots, in their shorter career at the end of the war, never had an opponent in front of him! And if so, it was usually also the last mission for them!
And a crucial thing, even the best campaign can not simulate (thankfully) the fear of death!

So true!

Time ago someone computed probability for a WWI average pilot to shot down an enemy. Well, all considered (probability to encounter enemies and, if so, that  a fighting would follow and a positive firing solution would happen) that was 1% (That is: one every 100 missions)!

Actually, we've all a special idea about how this "historical reenactment" should be: a selection of adventurous events, rigorously inspired to reality, I think.

Would it be possible to make the DGen.exe generate an error report, not a freeze-up, every time something goes wrong? For example last night, while I was working on a new campaign, the program froze. Finally, after a few frustrating hours, I discovered that by accident I had typed wrong date format ('440612' instead of '40612'). If the program generated an error report, I'd fix it at once.

Two little discoveries that may come in handy for mission builders:
1) Vehicles carrying antiaircraft weapons won’t fire at enemy aircraft if they’re selected from the ‘stationary objects’ list. Only when the same vehicles are selected from 'artillery' list, they will open fire. Sounds obvious but I made this mistake several times when working on campaign templates.
2) Presently, bomber formations are limited to 9 or 12 machines, unless they are heavy bombers, then their formation can be made of up to 39 machines. Now, thanks to Asura, it’s possible to edit AllPlanes.dat file and turn any medium or dive bomber into a heavy one. So if you, for example, make the Ju 87 the ‘HBomber’ and drop a few ‘hB’ parameters into the ops file, you’ll get spectacular formations of up to 39 Stukas. I armed my 'hB' Stukas in 3x250 kg bombs, and when they all rolled into a dive and dropped their bombs onto some target, it was a sight to behold :)

I at all against that here except problems of the generator possibilities of its development were discussed. :) it is simpler to trace everything in one subject. Concerning historicity and game process. I consider there should be a reasonable balance. On the one hand the front line and emergence of certain types of planes should correspond to the modelled historical period. On the other side of mission shouldn't strain monotony. After all it is game and first of all we for it undertake to enjoy process. Personally I for example very much would like to play dynamic campaign based on '46. And the option of alternative history when the USSR and the USA meet on Elba not as friends is even better. ;) actually there is a lot of Options and not all while it will turn out to realize. :)

Over questions of replenishments and losses it will be well necessary to think. After all in reality of a part were taken away on replenishment, changed to out-of-date types of planes etc. Reasonably constructed mechanism I think should allow to receive in mission a bigger variety of squadrons.

If in DGen_mod.ini to establish the LogLevel=0 parameter in files DGen_mod.log and DGen_mod_proc.log full debugging information on operation of the generator will remain. In case of generator freezing in the file DGen_mod_proc.log it is possible to define what procedure of the program hanged. Now all errors of the generator which can be traced are fixed.

Asura, you're probably aware of this problem, but just in case you aren't - sometimes fighters sent out to intercept enemy bombers or reconnaissance machines arrive too late, see the empty sky and turn back. I know it happened in real life, but still it's a bit annoying. Perhaps they could chase the fleeing enemy a little?
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Semor on August 30, 2012, 01:48:58 PM
Maybe a few suggestions for futher game mechanics.(if it´s possible)

-A better/ralistic plane resupply rate that can be for example set by the author of a campaign or set by the player in the [DGen] section of the confic.ini. With the the result that the enemy losses have greater impact on the count of planes that you encounter over the subcampaign and you never see the 10 bomers,10-15 fighters thing again and again in each mission.

-A "random"chance of interception in the missions,depending losses/resupplies for each squadron.This can be also set by the campaign builder/player.
At the moment,you have a nearly 100% chance of fighting in each mission,not very historical accurate.I know,the balance between fun and history,but I like this feature from DCG, that you´ll never know where the enemy is,from witch direction he comes and how many of them.If you´re were lucky,you will fly your route and come back saftly without contact but if not....you never know and must stay on high allert all over the time.  8)

So happens, when the airfield of interceptors is too far from the purpose which is attacked by bombers. If it is possible to put fighters in an expectation circle, with bombers this method doesn't approach. I will turn on this attention when I will rule procedures of formation of routes.

I had a possibility to carry out the next two weeks on the bank of the warm sea and I will use it. :) That you didn't miss - http://www.mediafire.com/?yskdgw89a8jo734 (http://www.mediafire.com/?yskdgw89a8jo734) the test, transitional version to future 2.0 here lies from 1.0.1.0. It is not finished version and it is intended for founders of campaigns and enthusiasts. The program completely wasn't tested yet and in it precisely there are mistakes but which can what be tried. To be exact:

1. Division into Pacific/not Pacific completely is absent - all files of campaigns are processed by one incorporated algorithm. As a base branch Pacific branch is chosen.
2. More than one departure in day available to all campaigns.
3. Absolutely new algorithm of selection is more whole, now it depends only on radius of flight of each plane which has been set in FM.
4. Data from FM are stored in the new AllPlaneDB.dat file which while is filled with test values. It will contain the correct values in version 2.0 from FM.

That isn't completed yet:
1. The system of briefings doesn't work - it too should be united.
2. Procedures of creation of routes for the incorporated version aren't adjusted.
3. The program practically wasn't tested.

I will prepare changes in the instruction on new possibilities while the basic - for formation of mission by the main file is now the ops file. Algorithm of work such:

1. Calculation of all is more whole on map available in flight radius.
2. Reading ops file and creation of the list available to mission: line of the ops file + quantity of the suitable purposes not equally to zero.
3. A choice in a random way such as mission.

Key points don't participate any more in a choice of the purposes. They are used only as the purpose "Town"

Besides I changed the list of available parameters in the ops file - added a number of possibilities. I will describe in the instruction in more detail.

After rest I will continue work on version 2.0, remained not much. ;)

Thanks Asura for your commitment and test version 1.5.

About interceptors missing their target (which happens often in Pacific environment, especially with high-flying B-29), I guess it is due to climb speed not taken in account. I mean, maybe DGen computes time to target with cruising speed in level flight, not considering portions of flight made climbing at slower speed. This doesn't affect much short flights at low and medium altitudes, but has an impact on long flights at high altitudes.

Just an idea, cheers,

Here’s something that might need fixing. When I get injured during a mission, I’m usually transferred to the next sub-campaign, but if it’s the last sub-campaign, when I click the after-mission ‘apply’ button, the game freezes. Shouldn’t it display the campaign debriefing message, and finish the campaign?  Has anyone noticed the same problem?

At the end of the log message appears: "Error in Select_PF_Target". ???

Unfortunately, the primary plan on association of two branches led to change of balance in the generator. It sometimes leads to that the generator doesn't find unequivocal communication "mission type - the purpose" and deduces similar mistakes. I now work over radical change of these procedures and mistakes won't arise. While I would recommend not to use in ini the file the MissionDistance parameter = it strongly limits the available purposes.

Quote
How can I fix this? Can I somehow continue this campaign? Will DGen continue working, if I will generate mission and wrote it in campaign.ini?

Close game. Find in the file Dgen_modERROR.log the line ParamStr: copy its contents in a clipboard. Then in a command line start the generator manually. An example -

ParamStr: users/1/ missions/campaign/ru/DGen_F_Crimea4214/ 1 282654864639 0 4

C:\..\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\dgen.exe users/1/ missions/campaign/ru/DGen_F_Crimea4214/ 1 282654864639 0 4

Thus you repeat generator start with the last parameters and he will repeat generation of unsuccessful mission. If generation passes without mistakes - start game and load campaign.
Unfortunately this solution didn't work. Again I heard a 'beep', and a new mission wasn't created. Instead appeared entries about pilot transfers, promotions. :(

I didn't manage to unite this part yet. In 1.5 routes only from Pacific, but this makeshift, only are really used in order that it was possible to try 1.5. In 2.0 over a land routes from Europe, over water - from Pacific will be used.

For the TBD I wrote everything needed in AllClasses.dat and AllPlanes.dat and I included the TBD1 in the [Planes] section of CoralSea.DB
For the F4F3 I created the classesUN1.dat and I registered the F4F3 as a FIGHTER_N trying to override the AllClasses.dat.

Well, it looks like nothing changed, there isn't a TBD squadron in the attack carriers mission and instead of TBD there is a attacking squadron of F4F3 with bombs.

I don't know what to do anymore, maybe I forgot something, but I can't put the TBD instead of F4F3 in the attack carrier mission. :-[

Can I suggest you something? You say "we are missing many important Japanese aircraft from the late 30s". sadly this is right...but:

We have already a Ki-30 with the right skins! Ist´s only a hack but better than a skin hack for the D3A.
Please look here:

http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,14502.0.html

..and instead the S-328 for the Ki-4 I think the K-10 fits more better in this timeframe and is build by a japanese Aircraft designer.

http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,19215.0.html

And please dont forget about the legendary Mitsubishi A5M4 that takes also part in the Nomonhan incident with great sucsess.

my 2 Cent.  :)

Edit:you can contact me via Pm if you need some Historical infos or Paint shemes about the Ki-27 or infos about the Sentais in this conflict.

At the moment I have stopped building campaigns for the modded game. The Manchuria/Khalkhin Gol campaigns will be for the stock game, although it can be played without problems in the modded game.

The A5M4 wasn't used at Khalkhin Gol, it was a pure Army Air Force operation, but the A5M4 will appear in the semi-historical Lake Khasan sub-campaign.

ok. No problem.

For the A5M4. after study some of my osprey publications,yes you are right,Khalkhin Gol was a pure Army Air Force operation. Sorry,my mistake.

I was working on the Coral Sea campaign and I don't know if this was intended to work like that, but DGen is ignoring CDBomber and CTBomber entries in AllPlanes.dat.
It only reads CBomber entries.
I put CBomber entries for SDB3 and for TBD1 with a torpedo and finally it worked.
Now there are missions with a mix of TBDs and SBD3s against Japanese carriers in the Coral Sea campaign.
But I was thinking if DGen could make mistakes, creating missions with TBDs against ground targets in other campaigns that have ground targets.

Unfortunately this solution didn't work. Again I heard a 'beep', and a new mission wasn't created. Instead appeared entries about pilot transfers, promotions. :(

Send me all files for debugging and still campaign files from the Dgen folder. I will look in what a problem.
Hello,
I'm sorry that I'm asking (I would not want to be pushy), but did you recieved the files I sent (to the e-mail: dgen.service@mail.ru) few days ago?

I am sorry that didn't answer immediately. Simply now I change a code of the generator and it temporarily isn't efficient. :) Therefore the exact reason while I can not tell. The mistake arises from that there are no purposes suitable for attack.

Sea: Art:0 HQ:0 Rail:0 Dep:0 Prt:0 Trp:0 Car:0 Trn:0 Tnk:0 Bdg:0 Amp:0 Con:5
Wake: Art:0 HQ:0 Rail:0 Dep:0 Prt:0 Trp:0 Car:0 Trn:0 Tnk:0 Bdg:0 Amp:1 Con:0

The generator finds 5 transport sea caravans and group of amphibians, but in the corresponding ops the file there are no missions for these purposes. I think a mistake arises from for it. In the new version similar mistakes will be not possible - the algorithm is reversed.

In the future maybe we could have new entries in ops files like nBT, nBTr, nBTx and nBD, nBDr and nBDx, so we could control a bit more the types of airplanes at PTO. :)
Another good thing could be to eliminate the 9 planes limit for each entry, because our systems have much more power now than at the time of the old version of DGen. The only problem is to make some coding to avoid explosions in the begining of the mission.

Is there a possibility to tune this by modifying some files or options, because 3/4 of the missions are not flyable "as is" ?
Also for some reasons, I fight only 110C4 (there are 4 of them against 50 FW190, 50 109 ... in the db files), do you know why ?

if we are talking about the new dgen.exe from Asura, i have discovered the same, only the first enemy fighter plane from the concerning planesXXX.dat file appears in the missions, equaly if it is used in the DB file or not (same for other classes like bomber, etc.)

A little information for "DGEN fanclub" :) Work on association of branches proceeds, I finished association of procedure which forms planes and routes in mission. Now for overland missions routes from FB branch, and for sea from PF. Now I unite procedure of data recording of mission.

At the same time I completely alter system of briefings. For a basis it is taken systems from PF when all messages are stored in one file, and the choice of the nation is carried out on codes. I added missing codes in algorithm and in version 2.0 there will be a possibility to make the correct messages for all parties, instead of to use messages of Germany and the USSR for their allies. I will leave messages on capture and loss of the cities for all theaters of operations. In addition I will make information on all types of missions in a briefing and instead of "patrol in the area" will be a specific objective.

Unfortunately version 2.0 beta I while can't call exit terms - everything depends on existence of free time, but I over it work. ;)

Thanks for the info. Take your time, we have lots of fun with your DGen as it is, and it can only get better. Briefings are important but I'm looking forward to other crucial fixes, like better randomizing of mission types, better coordination (so that interceptors don't miss their target on long flights), limiting daylight hours, full use of hydroplanes and torpedo planes on all maps, multiple 'enemy nations'. Anyway, I keep my fingers crossed for the outcome :)

Because I noticed that if we sink a carrier, for example, in the next mission the carrier is there again.
Maybe if the ship was heavily damaged in the last mission, that ship could be eliminated too.

Special missions cleaned. Soon I will start to be engaged in algorithms of selection of planes in mission. I have a decision how to organize unequivocal definition such as the plane and during too time to have possibility to use at the same time one plane for different types of missions and for the different parties/the countries. For example in the same campaign, and respectively in missions there will be Italian Bf.109 as attack planes (as an example) and German Bf.109 as fighters. Theoretically they can be pushed off with Bf.109 from structure of a special regiment of the Air Force of the USSR and the generator without problems will process it.  ;D

Hi, everybody. :)

I finished the main work on DGen_MOD 2.0 and began the first testing. While debugging of the program will be carried out and preparation of beta of the version I will start acquainting with features of the new version gradually.

1 . It is completely integrated option of the generator - I cleaned all double procedures and copied a code, having taken the best and unique from branches FB and Pacific. All main opportunities are available now isn't dependent on a battlefield. While there was a division into avianosny and overland options, but I will surely clean this restriction the following versions.

2 . I completely changed algorithm of calculation of radius of search of the purposes - now it isn't attached to key points and works according to the radius of flight from FM.

3 . I completely changed algorithms of selection of planes in mission and arms selection:
 - the AllPlanes.dat files and *Planes.dat aren't used any more.
 - are added the AllPlaneDB.dat file in which all necessary information on planes and the AllWeapons.dat file which is a matrix of a choice of arms depending on type of a fighting task is collected. I will in detail describe these files in documentation.

4 . I changed available versions of information in section [Planes] of the DB files:

Old format
[Planes]
10 F4U1A
10 F4U1D SSkin.bmp WSkin.bmp
probability of emergence and plane name, summer and winter skin.

New format - option 1
[Planes]
Allies England 10 F6F5 - can set now a plane nationality forcibly

New format - option 2
[Planes]
Allies England 10 F6F5 --Reconplane - can in addition set plane type (in this example of F6F5 will appear only as the scout)
10 F6F5 SSkin.bmp WSkin.bmp --Reconplane

all combinations work.

Now such option is possible:
[Planes]
Axis Germany 45 BF_109G6
Axis Italy 45 BF_109G6
57 BF_109G6Late
Allies USSR 57 BF_109G6Late

These planes will appear at the same time in missions with the established nationalities.

For today while everything, I will continue to acquaint with new opportunities in the next few days. :)

hm, perhaps i misunderstand this, but does this mean that the xxxxplanes.dat files are useless now? it´s today a very very important feature to tune the missions for each particular campaign/subcampaign - is the new AllPlaneDB.dat used by all campaigns or one for each subcampaign separate?

hm, perhaps i misunderstand this, but does this mean that the xxxxplanes.dat files are useless now? it´s today a very very important feature to tune the missions for each particular campaign/subcampaign - is the new AllPlaneDB.dat used by all campaigns or one for each subcampaign separate?

As it stands the xxxxplanes.dat files carry out two functions:
1 . Selection of necessary arms.
2 . Selection of the plane for type, thus selection is carried out on the plane nation. Further from the nation of the plane squad is selected and identification marks by planes are defined.

Still in the generator there were many types of planes the majority from which weren't used or in the generator united in one type (for example AFighter, FBomberL, FBomberM - all this equaled FBomber). I consider that it brought confusion in understanding of how the generator works and that it does. Besides - the xxxxplanes.dat files were very big, but in them at most 10% of information were used.

I solved a problem of selection of arms in the AllWeapons.dat file. Here its piece:
A_20C;2500;2500;1;1;1;1;1;1;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;1x10002x500;All

A_20C;500;100;0;0;0;0;1;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;1x53mmCirc;USSR

A_20G;2500;2500;1;0;1;0;0;1;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;40xParaF;All

It is a matrix in which all arms available to the plane are transferred, whether and values 0/1 define it can be used at attack of definite purposes. For example motorcades and trains or ships or tanks, etc.

New procedure will place the correct arms, besides all lines of the file and not just the first line participate in selection as was earlier. Respectively automatic selection of arms will be more various.

Also I cleaned use of the types aSoft, aShip, aTank, etc. If to approach to a question it is correct, absolutely not important who operates plane - the player or AI. The weapon has to get out by the identical principle and now selection is carried out by one procedure.

Whether authors of campaigns shouldn't think any more they added a line with the necessary weapon in xxxxplanes.dat or not. All settings are already made.

Now the second task - plane selection for mission. For a start I cleaned all excess types of planes, and remained tied to codes in the ops files. In documentation I will in detail describe all options for now it is short:

F, Ff - Fighter
nF, nFf - ?Fighter
fB(aF) - FBomber
B - Bomber
dB - DBomber (Dive Bomber)
tB - TBomber (Torpedo Bomber)
aB - Bomber or DBomber or FBomber
Bx, Br - Bomber or DBomber or FBomber
nB - CBomber

Still there is Staff - it is used at generation of casual planes.

Now it is possible to set absolutely accurately in ops file as in what quantity has to appear in mission.

The AllPlaneDB.dat one file also is used for all campaigns. In it the main data on planes are collected:
Name;Def. Faction;Def. Nation;Flyable;Type 1;Type 2;Type 3;Type 4;fmRange;fmCruiseSpeed;fmFuelMass (kg);DT1FuelMass;DT2FuelMass;DT3FuelMass

A_20C;Allies;USA;1;Bomber;Attack;Reconplane;TBomber;1800;300;1344;0;0;0
A_20G;Allies;USA;1;Bomber;Attack;Reconplane;TBomber;1800;300;1344;0;0;0
A5M4;Axis;Japan;0;CFighter;None;Fighter;None;1400;340;300;160;0;0
A6M2;Axis;Japan;1;CFighter;Kamikaze;FBomber;Fighter;1400;340;400;330;0;0
A6M2_21;Axis;Japan;1;CFighter;Kamikaze;FBomber;Fighter;1400;340;400;330;0;0

In one line on each plane the nationality and four roles which this plane can play is specified. Roles are broken on paramount (Type 1; Type 2) and minor (Type 3; Type 4). For missions on a code from the ops file at first the plane on the first couple, then on the second is looked for.

These are basic settings for planes.

To expand possibilities of the generator I added parameters in lines of section [Planes] of the DB file.

Exactly here I suggest to perform tunings on planes for each subcampaign. Now it is possible to register accurately a nationality and type of each plane in campaign.

For example, if in section [Planes] the line is set:
10 A_20C           - the generator will define from the AllPlaneDB.dat file a nationality - USA and possible roles of Bomber; Attack; Reconplane; TBomber

It is possible to make so:
[Planes]
10 A_20C      -Boston with identification marks of USA
Allies England 10 A_20C     -Boston with identification marks of RAF

In the same mission will be able there will be two identical planes with different identification marks.

It is possible to make so:
[Planes]
17 LAGG_3SERIES4     -the Soviet fighters (according to the AllPlaneDB.dat file)
Axis Finland 10 LAGG_3SERIES4       -the opponent by trophy planes

When using the old scheme with xxxxplanes.dat such it was simply not possible :)

One more addition in section [Planes] - the predetermined role of the plane. If to set such line:
10 F6F5 --Reconplane        -Hellcat It will be used only as the scout, thus all his roles from AllPlaneDB.dat will be ignored.

Well and the most important - exists now rigid communication between lines of section [Planes], the AllPlaneDB.dat file and the AllWeapons.dat file. Anything superfluous in mission won't appear.

In my opinion the new scheme is much better and more flexible than the old xxxxplanes.dat files. :)

Old campaigns continue to be supported in full. The xxxplanes.dat functions will be executed in most cases by AllPlaneDB.dat. There are moments when the same plane was used in the different countries. For the correct display of identification marks it is necessary to correct the DB files. For example in campaigns for the USSR for all B-25 it will be necessary to add in section [Planes]
Allies USSR 8 B_25J1

It isn't difficult to make it, I will add the corresponding instruction in release. Probably even I will write the converter which will automatically correct all DB files at the user.

On the Normandy map, using your DGEN, if you play a campaign, the type of AI plane which is chosen for a particular mission is always the first one on the plane.dat list.
For instance, in Boelcke's RAF campaign, the first german aircraft listed with "intercept" mission is the Bf110.
So, whenever you must fly a campiagn over France, your ennemy (in charge of "intercepting" your flight or the planes you are escorting)  is always Bf110.
If instead of Bf110 I put Bf109G6 on the list, the ennemy will always be 109G6 ...

if the AllPlaneDB.dat is used for all campaigns it´s impossible to change altitudes, speed, atc for one particular campaign or subcampaign without changing it for all the other campaigns?

And why to change the speed and height for different campaigns? What does it give? Plane speed on a straight line is connected with fuel consumption and as a rule without an urgent need it didn't exceed. Flight height generally depends on a fighting task, and respectively on arms. Opportunity to establish height for each type of the weapon is present. It is important to understand that height and speed are set only for flight on a route. In case of collision with the opponent planes AI starts operating and these parameters already mean nothing. It is really necessary to change the speed and height for each campaign?
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Juri_JS on December 20, 2012, 01:01:14 AM
Sorry Asura, but in my opinion dropping the xxxplanes.dat files is a big mistake. Without the ability to have individuel speed and altitude settings for each sub-campaign many of my campaigns will no longer work correctly.
A few examples. With the altitude settings I can influence the behaviour of bombers. With a low altitude setting I can force dive bombers to act like level bombers or fighter bombers, which they did in some situations. Moreover in different theaters of WW2 fighting took place at different altitudes. In Russia usually at low to medium altitudes, but in western Europe or over Japan at much higher altitudes.
The speed settings are very important too. In some campaigns it is necessary to give enemy planes low speed settings, to prevent them from reaching their target area too early, otherwise they might not encounter the players flight. On large maps like the Solomons low speeds are necessary to avoid running out of fuel on long range missions.

Please reconsider your decision concerning the xxxplanes.dat files.

Starshoy has added the planes.dat files feature after a request from some campaign builders and it was one of the best features in the stock dgen.exe file.

Post by: jeanba on December 20, 2012, 01:29:55 AM

Because it is historical :
Spitfire Mk IX (and most western front aircraft) flew at high altitude in 1943, much lower after DDay, because of the context of the war.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Asura on December 20, 2012, 02:03:56 AM
To tell the truth how the dynamic campaigns player never attached significance at what height the AI planes and with what speed fly. :)

I can propose such solution. After selection of the plane and arms selection I can look at xxxplanes.dat of the current campaign (if it is). To find there lines at which the Nation, the Type and Arms coincide with what are selected by new algorithm. If such lines are - I will take from them speed and height parameters. If such lines aren't present - parameters of their AllWeapons.dat and AllPlaneDB.dat files will be used.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod

And please don't forget the weapons in the xxxplanes.dat file. For example it would be incorrect to have rockets on a Me-262 in 1944. That's another reason why the xxxplanes.dat files are needed.

From xxxPlanes.dat information on speed and flight height only is taken, and also checked well to arms or not. xxxPlanes.dat isn't defining factor for plane type. The type of the plane is predetermined in the AllPlaneDB.dat file and can be specified in section [Planes] of the DB file.

xxxPlanes.dat can be filled by old rules, it will work for DGen 4.x.x.x and DGen_MOD 1.0.1.0, and also will be used in DGen_MOD 2.x.x.x

It´s happend again...I lost all my 43 missions at Boelkes Kuban campaign.I get a complete crash after hit the apply button at mission end,and then after restart IL-2 again I see a empty mission screen in the campaign with a nice message:No map in mission file or something.

If you now the solution for it,please add it to the next DGen_Mod version.

Moreover I think the mission generation system needs improvement. On patrol and defend missions the target area is often too far away and the enemy bombers will attack it before I can reach the target.

Here it is possible to think up something. Give a mission example, I will try to work over routes.

Here a few more observations:

1. During testing the new DGen with my own and other user-made campaigns I experienced a number of problems caused by the fact that the type of missions a plane can fly is no longer taken from the xxxxplanes.dat files. For many user-made campaigns a complicated rework will be necessary and I doubt that all campaign builders will be willing to do this. Therefore I strongly suggest to re-enable the possibility to set the mission types for aircraft in the xxxplanes.dat files to avoid incompatibility issues. Although it should still be possible to overwrite these settings with the entries in the xxx.db files.

2. A few times I had aircraft crashing into the ground at the start of a mission. I have send you two of the mission files.

3. Do carriers already work in European campaigns? I added one to my Norway campaigns but got this message:

Variant selected:
oDeDefendCluster 10622:50509   VVS 4nB 4nF   LW 8Y

A few examples:

Because the entries in the xxxplanes.dat files are ignored and there are no 'LRFighter' entries in the AllPlaneDB file,  no droptanks are used in long range missions of my Solomons campaigns and planes will sometimes run out of fuel during a mission.

Something funny happens when DGen can't find an 'Attack' entry for the G4M1. Fly a few missions in the first Japanese Navy fighter sub-campaign (SolomonsAugust1942e) to see what I mean. ;)

Moreover I sometimes use 'HBomber' entries for fighters in my campaigns, to create high altitude airstart fighters. Or I give bombers a 'Transport' entry. This does no longer work.

Re-enabling all settings in the xxxplanes file would allow compatibility with old user-made campaigns, without the need to rework them.

I divided codes for the new version of the generator. The nB code in the ops file creates the plane with the CBomber type. Universal bomber. If the diving bomber is necessary now there is a ndB code, and for torpedo bombers - ntB. It not the mistake, is operation of the new generator.

Hi Asura,

thanks for your efforts. Its nice to see dgen revamped after such long time and get these new maps playable.

While waiting for your next update I have tried to do something useful and did a (very halting) translation of the text in the messageEN-file. I also added some briefings for some of the usermade campaigns floating around the net.
Here is the link:
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?c44tgwwu196z8e4

In case you don´t want someone messing around your project, just inform me, I will remove the file.

I also tried to add the towns, airbases and bridges files for the malta map. I did not include every little town, but I think its a start.
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?13jds295s9sord8

Keep up the good work!
PS: I still got errors with the squadrons 13_JG52Slovakian and 356squadriglia with your last version. Will test the new one later.

OK, I got the italians to work:

356Squadriglia is spelt different in the old campaign-databases than in the Allwings.dat: 356squadriglia. After changing it to 356Squadriglia, it worked.

It was the Belgorod42-subcampaign from "Disaster On The Frontiers 2.1" by Amagi (http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=1763).

But the spelling 356squadriglia (without capital S) is also used in the stock stalingrad.db and stalingrad2.db. Was this spelling used by the old dgen.exe?

By the way: The error I got from "13_JG52Slovakian" seems to be caused by assigning a skin to this unit in the [Squadrons] section, but not listing it in the [OOB] section. So it wasnt a bug in the new dgen.exe.

The section [OOB] limits squadrons set in campaign just as section [Planes] a set of planes. If squadron is absent in [OOB] it can't be used in other parts of campaign. Except squadron of the player - it is added automatically from the game interface.

Over it it will be necessary to think. In general I now have big questions to avianosny part of the generator. It very simple and boring. There is no something there. So now it is a high time to start thinking that it is necessary to add in campaign for the pilot of deck aircraft. I hope it will turn out to light to this question one of the following versions.

On Leningrad map, FAF units always operate from bases north of Gulf of Finland, and Luftwaffe units from bases south of the Gulf. This is correct for most campaigns but I want to start a campaign of a Luftwaffe unit (II./JG 54) from a base north of the Gulf. DGen doesn't allow it. It must be hard-coded somehow.
My general idea is to allow a player to select a base from which he wants to start his campaign (now it's assigned randomly).

Thanks! By the way, could you also change the way a player advances through the squadron ranks?
It would be more natural to start a campaign as number 8 (tail-end Charlie), then get promoted to a leader of the second pair (number 7), then a leader of the second flight (number 5), and so on. Now I have to fly as wingman almost until I get promoted to squadron commander. I'm often the highest-scoring pilot in the squadron but I have to fly as wingman to some AI pilot with less experience, fewer kills and lower rank.

Dear Asura,

A lot of work you've made on this, but I can't start any mission, or can't exit at the end.

After I instaled, at first a lot of dat files missed (Allweapons, then Allplanes etc.) by the latest DGen.exe, then missed every plane types in error log.

Finally started (renamed the exact files), but frozen after a mission (Boelcke Western Front / France 1940 subcampaign in HSFX). So I gave up.

Please give us a link which contains all of the necessary and latest files, and it works properly.

Other question: are there any other campaign "list" or we can use only the original packages? Because I don't see any other option mentioned above, just the stock DGen campaigns.

Thank you very much! Thanks for your answer.

Dear Asura,

Many thanks for answering. Can you give some links for teh ongoing prohects using your DGen?

My plan is to make historical campaings regarding to the units way in the war.

So - for example - if you choose II/JG52 you automatically start Poland, then West (France, BoB), finally you get to the Eastern front. We have almost every map, which is need, but actually there is no campaign generator using them. I don't know wheter it can be possible or not.

Ps.: I don't like DCG, because the planes are exploding after start, and there is to many setting oppurtunity. I like campaings as historical as possible. :-)

add the 239IAP into the AllWing.dat file and it should work

Yes it should but it's already there like this:

183IAP;wFighter;Allies;USSR
195IAP;wFighter;Allies;USSR
197IAP;wFighter;Allies;USSR
237IAP;wFighter;Allies;USSR

so the problem must lie elsewhere.

My plan is to make historical campaings regarding to the units way in the war.

You have big plans. :) But nothing possible isn't present - really to make everything. In your case it is necessary to look at the campaigns***.dat files - in them information on sub campaigns gathers and their sequence is adjusted. Still the planes***.dat files will be necessary

Is there any tutorial about the DGen's ".mis" files?
I'm changing the Coral Sea ".mis" files, but I don't know what some objects mean to DGen.
I have a good knowledge about FMB, but If some friend could give me a link or some explanation about DGen's ".mis" files, I will be very grateful.

".mis" files are created in the full editor is a set (template) for creation of missions is more whole. The there are more than different objects on map (in files ".mis") the fighting departures will be more various. In the course of creation of missions the generator chooses the necessary objects from files ".mis" and adds in mission. I will add information in documentation on objects and their features a little later. Something about it was in documentation to the old generator - this part didn't change.

I will try to summarise as far as possible:

Assuming the battle set is called Orel42 (for example)

You need 2 MIS files called

Orel42Red.mis
Orel42Blue.mis

containing only red and blue objects respectively (although neutral objects like fires and smoke may be included).

The MIS files should cover all the areas used by the Blue side and Red side during the campaign, allowing for front line movement.

Target types:

6+ railway carriages = station
6+ trucks = depot
Radio truck and 4 other objects = Headquarters
6+ Artillery (not AA) = Artillery Battery
Stationary ships = port.

In addition you need moving trains, moving vehicles, moving armour and stationary planes.

I hope this is clear. Any Q just ask.

Have just been reading through those files and they are excellent and really contain all you need to know. Only 2 corrections of note:

1) From the Doc file: In the Schedule section of the DB file, a minus value results in Blue losing ground. In the file it says "your opponent" which may have been specific to that campaign. But minus values are a red capture and plus values are a blue capture.

2) From the HTML file in 2 places it misunderstands UseParkedPlanes=1 and I think it may just be a translation error from the original English text. To clarify: Murmansk, Kurland and Burma have UseParkedPlanes=1 set by default. It is not the case that it only works on those maps. UseParkedPlanes can work on other maps too by adding that line to the Dgen ini file (or here the Dgen_mod.ini file).

I think Asura has been doing a fantastic job and I'm really looking forward to the v2 release (2.0.0.4?) soon.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: greybeard on February 13, 2013, 04:04:25 AM
... UseParkedPlanes=1 ...

There's an "historical" misunderstanding about this option which DOES NOT HAVE TRUE (=1) and FALSE (=0) OPTIONS. It just works in conf.ini adding the line (ON) or removing it (OFF). This often caused "inexplicable" game crashes when it was set to =0 as recommended, since program read just its presence and not what set after equal sign, thus UseParkedPlanes=0 works exactly like UseParkedPlanes=1, that's to say ENABLE player's air base location according to parked planes type.

GB
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Ian Boys on February 13, 2013, 04:13:15 AM
I don't think that's the case in the Dgen_Mod version 2 and confusingly in the settings file there's also UseParkedPlanes=TRUE which is even more fun :)
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Ian Boys on February 13, 2013, 04:16:23 AM
Anyway the point was that instead of only working at Murmansk as the file said, it's already on by default on 3 maps and can be added to others.

I always use it in my campaigns (which is why I had it added to the maps I made) so I've never tried UseParkedPlanes=0. I wonder if the same is true of other things like HistoricalRanks?
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Juri_JS on February 13, 2013, 04:31:17 AM
Greybeard is right. DGen settings in the conf.ini/Dgen_mod.ini files can't be enabled or disabled by =1/=0.
To disable a setting it has to be deleted or a ';' has to be placed in front of the entry.

Detailed information on the DGen settings in the conf.ini and DGen_mod.ini file can be found here:

I need working drop tanks to test my Solomons and Hungarian campaigns, so I would prefer to have them in 2.0.0.4. But if adding the drop tank feature will take too much time, it might be better to wait till 2.0.0.5 and release 2.0.0.4 without it.

Asura, some time ago you said that the new DGen will be able to generate only a few, selected mission types, even one mission type. Is this feature being implemented?
Recently I tried to recreate Battle of Britain scenarios, and the RAF fighters, instead of defending London against Luftwaffe bombers, keep flying offensive missions to the other side of the Channel. When I removed all their offensive missions from the ops file, the game froze (I hate it).
I think DGen is best at generating tactical, close air-support campaigns - Red side bombs artillery, Blue side attacks a bridge, and so on - but it's no good at generating strategic campaigns, when only one side is offensive, and the other side is only defensive.
I was thinking of making a DGen campaign about the defence of Malta, but it's going to be the same problem :(

Another feature worth implementing, if possible:

oDeBombTown 10622:50509   VVS 3F 3F   LW 9B 4Y 9B 4F

This line should create a mission, when bombers come in two waves, each escorted by 4 fighters. Unfortunately, only the first group of bombers is escorted (by player and his flight). The other four fighters just fly ahead and leave the other 9 bombers unprotected.

It works, but it is necessary to observe the following compliance - for the chosen type of mission in the template have to be the type corresponding to chosen mission has to have the answering purpose and the plane of the player. For example:

Mission type -oBlueAttackBattery or oBlueReconBattery or oRedDefendBattery or oRedPatrolBattery - The blue fly to red artillery, red it protect.

For this purpose at the radius of flight of the player there has to be his artillery, and the plane of the player has to have the type FIGHTER, LIGHT or ALL. If one of conditions isn't carried out - missions won't be formed.

I have the same problem. If I am flying Stuemovik and I have 6Y 8F then only the first 4 fighters cover me and the other 4 fly ahead. Sometimes I don't mind too much as they tie up the enemy over the target but it's not really what I'm after. The neatest way would be to have the second flight of fighters to cover the first flight so the escort is stacked by altitude.

This line should create a mission, when bombers come in two waves, each escorted by 4 fighters. Unfortunately, only the first group of bombers is escorted (by player and his flight). The other four fighters just fly ahead and leave the other 9 bombers unprotected.

My suggestion for the future:

A fighter group after a bomber group in the ops file should always fly escort for the bombers, no matter how many bomber groups are in the ops file line and no fighters should fly ahead of the bombers.

Example:
9B 8F 6B 4F

This should create two bomber groups one escorted by 8 fighters and one by 4 fighters.


Only a fighter group infront of the bomber group should fly ahead of the bombers.

Example:
4F 9B 8F

This should create 4 fighters flying ahead of the 9 bombers and a bomber escort of 8 fighters.

This issue should be resolved separately. Now only the first pair of parameters unites in maintenance. For example VVS 9B 3F 9A 4F - 3F will accompany 9B, and 9A and 4F will depart to the purpose separately.

Yes of course, it will be uniform system not dependent on type of planes. I think the solution which was proposed by Juri_JS will approach best of all. It is necessary to look only as it it will be coordinated with the current ops files.

Post by: Lagarto on February 18, 2013, 06:08:11 AM
One thing that needs to be discussed is what happens with such entries:
6B 4F 4F
Should both 4F group escort the bombers or just one and the other group should fly ahead?

Perhaps this is the right solution to what Ian proposed: "The neatest way would be to have the second flight of fighters to cover the first flight so the escort is stacked by altitude."
I imagine a following setting: 3B 8F 8F 8F, a RAF 'Circus' type mission, with bombers as a bait and three levels of fighters, close escort, mid escort and high escort, each keeping eye on the one directly below.

Post by: Boelcke on February 18, 2013, 06:45:30 AM
considering the example from juri_js in post #552, this would be the way, in this logical structure 3B 8F 8F 8F means all the fighters would be staying with the bombers

Before making the decision I advised to work these questions in the full editor. It is simple to me to set multilevel maintenance, but game doesn't observe the instructions given to it. One of the reasons why didn't make so earlier, is that fighters of maintenance start manufacturing "snakes" and when "snake" on "snake" result is imposed to predict difficult. Collisions are possible.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Ian Boys on February 18, 2013, 07:02:25 AM
I have made several missions like this and generally you don't get collisions because the different flights are stacked by alt.

You do get collisions if one flight guards some bombers and another guards other bombers in the same formation. That is why I use altitude stacking. So 6Y 8F has your Sturmoviks escorted by 4 fighters who are themselves escorted by 4 fighters above them.

Something that I noticed using the new features (ntB and ndB) was that it is impossible to make scramble missions in carriers vs carriers campaigns without ntBr and ndBr.

Maybe it will be necessary to limit the number of escort fighter groups per bomber group to one.
In this example - 9B 12F - it will not be too complicated to give the three four plane flights different altitudes to avoid crashes.
Things will get complicated when we have something like this - 9B 8F 8F. I think in this case it is better to let only the first 8F escort the bombers and let the second 8F fly ahead.

Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Ian Boys on February 18, 2013, 09:17:17 AM
Hmm, tricky. What happens with 4B 8F?

And the advantage of 4B 2F 2F is that you can get (for example) Mig-3 and I-16 escorting the bombers.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Lagarto on February 18, 2013, 10:48:00 AM
I'll be happy with one escort group per one bomber group as long as we can have several groups of bombers flying in waves, each group escorted by more than just 2-4 fighters.

Another problem with having more than one bomber group is that, with air-start type of mission, two groups are sometimes spawned too close to each other and collide. A bigger difference in altitudes could solve the problem.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Asura on February 18, 2013, 10:31:43 PM
I had still thoughts to divide group on different aero houses 9B 6F 9A 3F - 9B 6F begin with one airfield, 9A 3F begin with the second airfield. Purpose one, flight vectors the different.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod

That would ease the cramped airfields you can get. But it really limits group size. If you want 18 bombers how would you do that then?

i´ve tried to solve this problem with different altitudes for the different bomber planes in the concerning xxxx.planes.dat files, after that the situation has become a little bit better but the problem wasn´t realy solved, from time to time the formations collided again when spawning

i think the biggest problem for this solution will be the heavy bombers, they can´t take off from most of the airfields
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Asura on February 19, 2013, 03:31:04 AM
For bombers there is a simple decision which is used now - start in air over airfield. hB always begin only in air.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Lagarto on February 19, 2013, 10:07:47 AM
The problem with 'hB' bombers (it could be any bomber, a Ju-87 for example) is that they fly too high, and on shorter missions their escort fighters have problem reaching their altitude in time. I wish the 'hB' bombers flew at altitudes specified in the concerning xxxx.planes.dat files.

As for fighters - it would be great to have groups of, for example, 30F, but there's just not enough room on the runway, where they're spawned. And when they're spawned at time intervals (like in PF), the game stutters. Ideal solution would be to make them spawn at dispersals, wait their turn, taxi to the runway, and take off, but I don't know if it's possible.

Another related idea: I wish the airfields had additional parameter (like 1,2,3,4 - 1 by default) informing the DGen.exe that on this particular airfield planes can take off singly, in pairs, in three-plane flights, and four-plane flights. There is enough room for that on many airfields. Besides, several fighters taking off simultaneously, in line abreast, would look so much more realistically.

"hB" at first reflected only for bombers in Il-2:Battle over Europe with air start. Therefore all parameters of a system of bombers are registered in a generator code. For a large number of other bombers addition of a new code will be the best decision.

From airfields it is simply to make take-off  in pairs, in three-plane flights, and four-plane flights, as well as a large number of planes. I will gradually develop the generator.

In general the generator does the only thing - creates the text.mis file to similarly full editor in game. It means that everything that it is possible to make in the full editor it is possible to realize in the generator. I with pleasure will add everything in the generator that will be useful for players as itself regularly I pass dynamic campaigns. :) And if you tell me as well as that in the full editor it is necessary to make to have a new opportunity and as it will be written down in.mis the file - I will add this opportunity much quicker.  ;)

Post by: greybeard on February 22, 2013, 03:29:23 AM
I would add a special request for DGen_MOD about Rufe floatplane.

Thanks to Nimits help and performing some test, I got the idea that Starshoy set DGen to deal with A6M2N just for stock dedicated dynamic campaign "Rufe fighter", where player flys this floatplane from Tulagi to Iwo. It may get only two kinds of missions: Scramble and CAP. Related "ops" files are set accordingly, with only player's flight on Japanese side. So, in these kind of missions, adding a flight to player's one, it can be of A6M2N ... forced to take-off from runway! DGen processes this kinds of mission according to plane type and only if player's one is A6M2N, it places him (and his flight) on water. As a consequence, it looks impossible to have an AI-only flight of Rufe's. It's a pity!

Please, Asura, let me know what do you think about.

Thanks,
GB

Generally, there is little use for all hydroplanes in DGen. They would be great for rescue type missions in fighter campaigns - escorted hydroplane flies out to sea, lands as if to pick up a downed airman, then takes off and flies back to base. Meanwhile friendly fighters protect it, while enemy interceptors try to shoot it down.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Boelcke on February 22, 2013, 06:05:52 AM
I don´t think that the Rufe float planes are the most worse problems in dgen campaigns, atm it´s much more important to get a full workable dgen.exe which at first has the features from the old/stock dgen.exe in addition with the use of new planes and maps. After that there is enough room for improvements, with the previous mentioned base. 

btw, there are a lot of problems with the old dgen.exe like

- no night campaigns possible
- only one mission for each day possible
- problems with bomber/fighter formations/groups like mentioned before
- air/ground start in relation to the number of formations in a mission
- limitations to the number of groups and planes for each group
... and so on

if this can be solved and after this is done i would also be glad to have Rufe floatplanes in the campaigns, but as long as the previous problems are existing it´s of little interest for a campaign builder

I have an unfinished Rufe campaign for the Solomons map on my HD, so I like to see the seaplane behaviour fixed too. But I agree that it doesn't have a high priority. First let's iron out the other remaining bugs and finish the final 2.0.0.x version, that is needed to release our current campaign projects. More complicated features can added later.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: greybeard on February 22, 2013, 12:19:53 PM
Sorry guys if it seemed I want Rufe as a priority; I agree that a fully working DGen_MOD, allowing new flyables and maps, is the highest priority. I meant my "special" request to be just added to list of things to do in a future. Glad I'm not alone in considering this unique floatplane (the sole fighter one) worth of an interest.

BTW: Boelcke, in PTO more than one mission a day can be played already with stock Dgen. Limit of one you mention applies only to ETO.

For Asura,

(But others please contribute their views)

It would be nice to have an accurate loadout situation so that we don't have very odd situations like 109G with WfGr in Russia against Bostons.

In particular:

- Yak-1: no rockets used after May 1942
- Yak-1b: no rockets were used.
- Yak-7b: no rockets used after May 1942
- Messer 109G6: Mk108 30mm prop cannon never used by Finns
- Messer 109G6: 30mm cannon wingpods only used by Germans (not Finns, Italy, Rumania or Hungary)
- Messer 109G6: WfGr only used by Germans and only over Germany. Never vs Russians so if enemy=Russia then delete please
- Messer 110: same re WfGr.

I am sure other examples will come up. I don't really know about US planes for example.

Thank you

For historically accurate loadouts you can create individual *planes.dat files for every sub-campaign.

More than one mission per day in ETO campaigns is already possible in the latest DGen version.

Greybeard, I understand that you are frustrated with the problem you are having but it doesnt do anyone any good to make complaints in the manor you have been posting. Ian was correct in his post on the last page of this thread. You need to remember that modders do all this for free and take many hours out of the life to make these mods and they post them here for you to use for free.

Constant complaing and what can also seem as belittling the maker of the mod is considered very rude. I'm sure you would not like a response of " learn to fix it yourself or shut up" so please try to control your frustration and list the issues you are having but try to do it in a more constructive manor.

If not, we will have to take actions that we really dont want or enjoy having to take.

I do have recon on both sides but no transport planes. Do you mean DC-3 or alike?

I exploited Asura's DGen_mod capability to deal with dates outside 41-45 setting his own date format YYYYMMDD (e.g.: 19390520).

Currently, DGen_mod in ERROR file gives me list of ALL targets =0 and I doubt of this, since in other part of log file AF are listed, for instance, so can't be AF=0. Could be a DGen_mod glitch.

Anyway, since now I learnt that Juri was already working with Asura to a Khalkhin Gol campaign, we agreed that was useless and virtually chaotic do same thing twice. So I'll wait for Juri's almost complete campaign, to pick, with his permission, some parts for mine.

Did Asura say anything about the aces problem? It is strange, that aces work in all other campaigns, but are causing an error in your Donbass campaign. There must be something wrong that needs closer investigation.

Btw, you can also encounter aces during a mission, not only directly after take off.

Is there any solution?
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Juri_JS on March 09, 2013, 10:34:36 AM
Do you mean the sounds that can be heard during briefings/debriefings? I also noticed, that these sounds disappear after flying a Solomons mission. It is not possible to influence these sounds with the DGen campaign files, so the problem is either caused by the DGen.exe file or by the game itself. That is something that needs to be checked by Asura.

By the way, at the moment I don't recommend to play my Solomons campaigns with DGen 2.0.0.5, they are not fully compatible. I will update the campaigns when the final version of 2.0.0.x is finished.

I have a question about new ships/tanks/vehicles included in the HSFX 6.0 (or any other mod pack). There are many such objects which I want to use in my campaigns. However, some are either ignored by DGen as targets or they cause DGen to freeze.
My question - is it necessary to add these objects to the lists of objects stored in DGen/MOD (Amphibious, Tank, CapitalShip, Carriers and so on) to make DGen recognize them? For example, there are great-looking landing crafts included in the HSFX but when I added them to a campaign template, the program froze. The log showed that the program got stuck after the line: "ClusterList count", when it was supposed to generate the line: "FleetList count".

Hi, everybody! I wasn't gone, a lot of work and very little free time was simple. :) Now peak behind and I continue work on the generator. Tomorrow or at the beginning of the next week there will be the following version in which I added drop tanks support for the plane of the player and AI. Now actively I check and I correct the errors sent by you.

greybeard
I checked your errors - in my version of the generator (2.0.0.6) the error of "Can't load Regiment "356Squadriglia"" doesn't repeat, but I faced other problem - if the file the name is written to mis with capital letter - 356Squadriglia - game doesn't load mission. I replaced the name in AllWing.dat.

Concerning Japanese campaign (Green Hell):
1 . In sections [Squadrons] in skin:RRG_11 Sentai lines - 1 Chutai.bmp can't be gaps (RRG_11th_Sentai_1st_Chutai.bmp)
2 . After removal of lines with gaps at me campaign earned without problems.

Try these campaigns once again with future version 2.0.0.6
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Asura on March 21, 2013, 05:21:57 AM
I closely approached to bringing an order to formation of groups of planes. Initially in the generator the simple scheme which contained in lines of the ops files was put:

oMissType RED Group1 Group2 BLUE Group1 Group2

Group2 always carries out protection (cover) of Group1. If the group one it carries out a task in itself. Now there were difficult designs from several polytypic groups. The generator certainly forms them, but interaction of these groups is completely broken after the first couple.

Let's think up convenient algorithm which will unambiguously process sequence of groups in the line ops. And still we will establish what there has to be an interaction of links in group. I wait for your offers.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Juri_JS on March 21, 2013, 05:37:05 AM
To quote myself from a few pages ago (slightly edited):

My suggestion for the future:

A fighter group (F) after a bomber group (B, dB, hB, A or fB) in the ops file should always fly escort for the bombers, no matter how many bomber groups are in the ops file line and no escorting fighters should fly ahead of the bombers.

Example:
9B 8F 6B 4F

This should create two bomber groups one escorted by 8 fighters and one by 4 fighters.


Only a fighter group infront of the bomber group should fly ahead of the bombers.

Example:
4F 9B 8F

This should create 4 fighters flying ahead of the 9 bombers and a bomber escort of 8 fighters.

How to process the following designs?

There is a lot of options :)
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Juri_JS on March 21, 2013, 08:10:34 AM
In my opinion in all these cases the last 4F or 4Y groups should be independend fighters, without an escort duty, because they are not directly after a bomber group. Which will make them fly ahead of the bombers in the mission (if their speed setting in the *planes.dat file is high enough).
Making them escort fighters for the escort fighter group infront of them or the bomber group that already has escort fighters wouldn't be a good idea, because it would create a large number of circling escort fighters, which will surely cause collisions.

Very much so! This is how USAAF flew over occupied Europe late in the war, sending large formations of fighters to clear the path for the heavy bombers, all the way to the target.

I agree.

A bug that I noticed in my Coral Sea campaign is that some bombers are starting to flight almost at the sea level in the begining of the "attack carriers" mission.
The result is 3 or 4 bombers crashing on the water every attack mission.

I have a doubt.
How the links in "CoralSea.DB" work?
For example:
oUsIntercept oUsBombCarrier 0 oUsBombCarrier 0

What can happen when Dgen reads that line?

I offer such option of processing of groups:

In G1-G4 groups if the fighter or player code as the fighter is faced by a code of the attacking plane - the fighter or the player will carry out cover. G5-G7 groups... work separately.

1B 2F 3B 4F 5B 6F 7F - 2F escort 1B, 4F escort 3B, 5B 6F 7F - separate groups

Why are G5 and G6 separate groups and not bombers + escort fighters? If separate G5-G7 groups are needed in a mission, they can be created by this line - 6F 7F 5B.

Yes, please, I agree with Juri. :)
I think if a fighter group have a bomber group before, even if the bomber's group is the Player's group, the fighter group needs to escort that bomber group.
If separate bombers or fighters groups are needed we can put the bombers after the fighters in the end of the line and everything will be OK. ;)

This feature is essential for PTO.
For example, in Coral Sea's campaign, the course of the battle is defined by the recon airplanes.
If a recon plane reach the recon target (carriers fleet in this case), an attack will be imminent in the next mission, even if fighters shot down the recon planes later. ;)

Fighters can fly at the same velocity if you make the right changes in the "dat" files.
They can fly together in a mission, they will protect each other, it's a kind of fake escort. :)
Bombers need escort because they are slower, the fighters will go ahead if they are not escorting.

Fighter-bombers are not "F". ;)

At the moment I corrected all known errors and came a few to develop time functionality of the generator. That is planned at 2.0.0.8:

1 . Management of time of day, global and for separate campaigns. It will be possible to establish the borders day/night and for example to make campaign of the night fighter.
2 . Management of weather conditions for separate campaigns (for example it will be possible to clean rains but to leave fogs).
3 . To add weather elements which are available in extreme versions of game. The first that is remembered - a wind, but I will try to study in more detail this question and to add everything that is.
4 . To bring an order with groups to lines of the ops files - that it was clear what group whom follows and that does.
5 . Correction of mistakes which else will be.

At 2.0.0.9 I plan to deal with random planes in mission.  I will correct collisions of planes in air.

If there are wishes on random planes - with pleasure will listen. :)

I discovered why some bombers are crashing on the water, the problem is when there is 8 or 9 bombers in the same group.
If there is an waypoint with a sharp turn to the right, each bomber will dive a bit to avoid collision, in the end, the last two bombers will dive too much and will crash on the water.
It is occuring only with Devastator torpedo bombers.
The solution could be more altitude or less sharp turns when flying low, but I think less sharp turns will be more difficult because all flights have the same 3 waypoints to gain altitude in the begining.

Another bug that I noticed is sometimes one carrier is substituted by another ship, the carrier wasn't sunk in the last missions.

the mission distance doesn't work for me, also i have frequently german Blenheim bombers instead of the assigned Heinkels or Junkers

at least i had two crashes of the game with the whole screen full of messages which looked like messages of a log file - the only way to go on was to kill the Il2 exe file with the Task Manager

I´ve tested the V 2.0.0.7 with a new created BoB campaign and had the problem, that frequently RAF Hurricanes are taking off from german airfields in France.

@ Asura: If it´s interesting for you i can send you the files for investigation. Just give me a message.

I thought that corrected it. Send me please your campaign - I will check.

At the moment I corrected all known errors and came a few to develop time functionality of the generator. That is planned at 2.0.0.8:

1 . Management of time of day, global and for separate campaigns. It will be possible to establish the borders day/night and for example to make campaign of the night fighter.

...

more than one mission each day would be an usefull feature, it was added to the stock dgen.exe but never worked

By the way, it's now also possible to set airstart points in the red and blue template files of European campaigns. Which means every map can now be used for airstart missions. This could offer some interesting campaign building possibilities.

Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Boelcke on April 07, 2013, 04:16:38 AM
some more questios ...

i´ve tried to add some more planes to the files in the MOD folder, into the allplane.dat, allclssses.dat, etc. ... for example the Hurricane IId and put this line into the allplane.dat

HurricaneMkIId;Allies;1;England;USSR;None;1;FBomber;None;None;None;1000;220;318;0;0;0

i´m not sure if "FBomber;None;None;None" is ok - or has there to be a specific order for it? And havee all planes which are in the allplane.dat and allclasses.dat to be also in the allweapons.dat file, it looks to me that the xxxplanesxxx.dat files from the concerning campaigns are enough?

I found a problem with the P 36 in the plane.dat file from the MOD folder. The P36 didn´t work for France, i always got the message "can´t find P_36A". The P36 is listed in the plane.dat files as Axis plane, nation Finland:

P_36A3;Axis;0;Finland;None;None;0;Fighter;None;None;None;1000;310;454;0;0;0

adding France to it didn´t work. Only changing it into

P_36A3;Axis;0;France;None;None;0;Fighter;None;None;None;1000;310;454;0;0;0

made it possible to make it work in my campaign, but this will avoid it from working in campaign for Finland.



Concerning the settings files: What has there to be if more than one nation is enemy in a campaign? Until now there was the option

[EnemyNation]
concerning_subcampaign England

for example. What has to be there if England and USA are both enemy nations?

argh, the game doesn´t use the cruising altitudes from the xxxxplane.dat files

I checked this moment. The generator correctly reads height of flight and height in an attack point from all files. But then procedure of "random installation of height" starts working. The dispersion on ustanvlenny height can from "minAlt/2 + 500" to "minAlt". (minAlt - value of height of flight from the planes files). I think it was made that planes didn't meet at the same height. For a change. And then one more procedure which levels height on all route works that there were no steep slopes and descents. I think absolutely it isn't necessary to clean this part. Can simply limit height change within 1000 meters? Instead of within height half.

HurricaneMkIId;Allies;1;England;USSR;None;1;FBomber;None;None;None;1000;220;318;0;0;0

1 - The sign that the plane can be used in several countries (MultiNation).

HurricaneMkIId;Allies;1;England;USSR;None;1;FBomber;None;None;None;1000;220;318;0;0;0

Three countries for which the plane can play. Further the generator selects finally the country for the plane from planes.dat files or establishes the country from [EnemyNation] or if the plane has a touch the party that the player - is established the country of the player.

HurricaneMkIId;Allies;1;England;USSR;None;1;FBomber;None;None;None;1000;220;318;0;0;0

The list of roles which the plane can carry out. This list is corrected on planes.dat files.

P_36A3;Axis;1;Finland;France;None;0;Fighter;None;None;None;1000;310;454;0;0;0 - This line will correctly fulfill two nations.

But I would advise not to correct files from the MOD catalog. Later I will add a set of files for DBW in which there will be all planes + additional separate mods. And a problem of several nations I recommend to solve through the DB files.

Quote
Old format
[Planes]
10 F4U1A
10 F4U1D SSkin.bmp WSkin.bmp
probability of emergence and plane name, summer and winter skin.

New format - option 1
[Planes]
Allies England 10 F6F5 - can set now a plane nationality forcibly

New format - option 2
[Planes]
Allies England 10 F6F5 --Reconplane - can in addition set plane type (in this example of F6F5 will appear only as the scout)
10 F6F5 SSkin.bmp WSkin.bmp --Reconplane

all combinations work.

Now such option is possible:
[Planes]
Axis Germany 45 BF_109G6
Axis Italy 45 BF_109G6
57 BF_109G6Late
Allies USSR 57 BF_109G6Late

These planes will appear at the same time in missions with the established nationalities.

Hi, everybody! There was a big loading at work, in the generator almost wasn't engaged. Now became a little more free over time and work proceeds. I corrected the sent errors and I added new parameter in DGen_mod.ini - noWounded. It is parameter includes ignoring of wounds of the player - in the book of the pilot there will be a record about wound, and missions won't be passed.

Some more observations:

It looks like the function to exclude airfields in the settings files don´t work on ETO maps. I´m always spawning from the airfield i had excluded. The settings for air-/groundstart in the settings file for allies and axis are also not considered in the campaigns.

EDIT: It didn´t work for me with the DRK_Circus map, North Africa map and the Westfront44 map for example.

The parameter in the mod.ini for the mission distance does also not work, when it´s set to 100 km for example, the distances in the missions are frequently about 200 km or more.

Hi, everybody! Development of the next version took more time than there was a wish, but all that was planned is made.

v2.0.0.8 (24/05/2013)
+ added settings for begin and end of the night
+ added weather settings
+ added wind settings in the section [WEATHER]
+ changed groups processing order in ops files
+ KhalkhinGol map data by Juri_JS
+ Manchuria map data by Juri_JS
+ Battle of Britain map (CAN_EnglishChannel) data by Boelcke
+ Malta map (mrz_Malta) data by kowi76
+ some bugs fixed

http://www.mediafire.com/download/2iur424sh4brry3/DGen_MOD_2.0.0.8.zip (http://www.mediafire.com/download/2iur424sh4brry3/DGen_MOD_2.0.0.8.zip)

In new parameters DGen_mod.ini are added:

NightBeginW=17 - hour of the beginning of night in the winter
NightEndW=7 - hour of the termination of night in the winter
NightBeginS=20 - hour of the beginning of night in the summer
NightEndS=4 - hour of the termination of night in the summer

In the settingsXxX.dat files the optional section [MapNight] is added. For each map of campaign it is possible to determine the time of the beginning of night.

[MapNight]
SolomonsAug1942 Random 17 8
SolomonsOct1942 Random 16 9

The 1st parameter - the map name
The 2nd - type of night missions (Random - old algorithm of definition of possibility of creation of night missions, True - always night missions, False - always day missions)
The 3rd - hour of the beginning of night
The 4th - hour of the termination of night

In the settingsXxX.dat files the optional section [MapWeather] is added. For each map of campaign it is possible to establish probability as a percentage emergence of weather conditions.

[MapWeather]
Wake1943 30 40 16 5 3 3 3

[map] [cloudlessly] [clearly] [haze] [a weak fog] [fog] [rain/snow] [thunder-storm]

Wake1943 100 0 0 0 0 0 0 - always a clear weather.

In the settingsXxX.dat files the optional section [MapWind] is added. For each map of campaign it is possible to establish probability as a percentage emergence of a wind with a certain speed.

[MapWind]
Wake1943 60 30 8 2

[map] [0 - 3 ms breeze] [3 - 8 ms moderate] [8 - 11 ms fresh] [11 - 14 ms strong]

I while will freeze active completion of the generator and I will be engaged in preparation of the detailed instruction on all files and settings of the generator. In version 2.0.0.9 will be it is ruled mistakes and the full instruction of version 2.

ok, downloading again did it ... working now :)

impressions at a first glance:

- in the Defense of the Reich campaign, the allied escort foighters are now staying with the bombers

- Started a BoB campaign and still had some problems with the altitude of the planes; the german bombers are flying at 7000 m and the fighters at low level, even when the fighters are assigned to 7000 m in the xxxxplanes.dat - the players RAF flight also does fly at around 500 m

- attacking ship targets, the bombers flew to the destination point, but no ship appeared, even when ship convois are existing in the mis files; attacking stationary ship in harnours works well

will do some more testing ...

Creating attacks on moving ships is a little bit tricky. The target area for attacks on moving ships is always near the ships last waypoint. When the ships route is too long they will arrive too late at the target area. It is best to use shorter routes for ships. On the smaller maps routes of less than 40 minutes are usually enough, only on larger maps longer routes are needed.

I have a bug.
When the mission starts and all the airplanes spawn, I have 36 collisions.
18 airplanes spawn at the same point of another 18 airplanes.
There are no errors or something.

And the carriers are still disappearing.
In the Allies side, the carrier sometimes is substituted with a destroyer, but in the Axis side, one carrier sometimes simply disappears.

Not absolutely understood a problem - on a template there is an aircraft carrier, and it vanishes in mission? If so, check an aircraft carrier route - all points of its route have to is in the territory if though one gets on the territory of the opponent - the generator cleans object from mission.

Yesterday I experienced the same in a DGen mission. There was no carrier and the carrier planes started in the water. When I restarted the mission everything was alright and all planes started from the carrier. So I am not sure if this is really a DGen problem or a mission loading issue of the game.

It's basically a complete rework of the DGen.exe file that fixes many of the campaign generator's shortcomings and gives campaign builders new options, for example the possibility to use new maps and planes, that were not supported by the old DGen. But it's not a rework of the old DGen campaigns.

And adding some information about the features of the new DGen in the first post would be a good idea.

The old DGen campaigns should work with the new DGen.

man, that stuff is hopelessly outdated, i don´t understand why people are still using this ancient stuff - all my campaigns which are included in enyor´s pack are updated serveral times until today (and BOE and TLD are also outdated and not needed anymore)

You´re right Boelke.anicent ist the best word for it..I wait for some new stuff in the next Time from the talented guys like you,Juri_JS,etc. I have really enough from the Stock Maps/Stock Planes in DGen Campaigns.

Btw: @ Giuseppin,take a look at here.The Campaigns in this collection are a bit "fresher" like the EnJoy´R ones.

Yes,yes, i know that these Enjoy’R DGen Campaigns are very old, outdated and sometimes unplayables with the last game updates. I Played your excellentes campaigns, Boelcke, But I'm just playing those old campaigns for several reasons:
-I only play offline
-I only play the Allied campaigns. I refuse to play Axis campaigns for strictly political reasons. (In fact I have never flown in a Focke Wulf or BF-109 not even for curiosity).
- I have not finished more than three or four of those campaigns.
Of course, I downloaded and played other campaigns. All Spanish Civil War I've found (Poltava you are great!) Republic side, obviously. Yes, I'm Spanish.
-I prefer the campaigns with medium or heavy bombers than fighters.
Finally, each player is a world, in a matter of taste there is nothing written. A greeting and thanks for answering. Salud.

Hi Asura!

Thanks for all your great work; the ability to open DGen up for all the new content, official or otherwise is excellent - long may it continue.

I'm using 2.0.0.8 and am having issues with a modified version of the default BoE RAF Fighter campaign over Normandy.

After a lot of tweaking I got some extra squadrons in & successfully generating, put the B11 airfield into the airfield references and got DGen to recognise it, plus I added a custom made NormandyPlanes.dat file to get the fighter bombing Spitfires to fly a bit higher en route to target. All good.

The trouble is actually landing and ending the mission successfully. My airfield is close to the frontlines but definitely in the Red forces area yet I keep getting captured when I end the mission!

I know the capture scripting is based not necessarily on the frontlines but distance to closest ground units but there are many Red units based on the airfield and some within 3-5km of the airfield.

I have re-started the campaign 5 times now, flying out of three different red airfields and the result is always the same - fly mission, land, end mission and captured.

Any ideas?

Hello

I am under HSFX6.017 and using DGEN 2.0.0.8.
My OS is vista.
During the installation process, the installer did not work, I had to do everything by hand.

Now, my problem is that when I create a new campaign, everything works and the first mission is created, but I have a crash to desktop.
If I restart again, my campiagn is not available (but the files under misisons/campaign ..) are there

Any idea ?

Thnak you in advance

The generator receives information on captured of the pilot from game - in eventlog there is a line of" (0) was captured at" if it is - the pilot is considered captured. The front line moves on the key cities from section [Towns] of the DB file. You should deal with sections [Towns] and [Schedule].

The error log said "Can't find AllplanesDB.dat" I had selected 4.12 when installing, but that file did not get copied to the MOD folder. I deleted everything, did a manual install, and it seems to be working.

The new version works faster when loading new missions. Tried to spawn with two large bomber formations with 39 heavy bombers each and they spawned without crashes between the formations, that is very cool, i was able to create missions with two heavy bomber formations and one 12 fighter escort squadron. :)

Still one problem is existing, every now and then my squadron is relocation to a new airfield which is in the enemy territory.

I am not an expert on ww2 formations, but as far as I know the heavy bomber formations in DGen are very close to the combat boxes the Americans used during the war. Only the distance between the individual 3-plane flights seems a little bit small.

I just tested my Hungarian campaign in 4.12 and DBW. There are combat box formations in DBW at mission start, but it seems the AI can't hold their positions correctly and the longer the mission takes, the greater the distance between the different flights in the formation becomes.

Long ago there were no new versions of the generator, but it doesn't mean that the project calmed down.  All this time of Boelcke, Juri_JS and Motorhead checked version 2 which united all the best that was made for two main parts of game.  Now the generator really uniform and as game doesn't depend on theater of operations.
True development of the generator will begin with version 2.0.1.0 - now it is possible to add quietly new opportunities, the base is for this purpose created. According to the link stable DGen_MOD version.

check the Dgen_mod.ini in the IL2 root folder and check if there is a line like this included:

I can't but share very good news! I understood as to reach Java of a code of game and found out as the part which is responsible for creation of dynamic campaigns works. As a result I am known how to add any country in the interface of campaigns and without problems to start campaign for example for Legion Condor. Is wishing to be engaged in such campaign? ;) Naturally it everything for moded of versions of game with an additional set of the countries and squadrons.

Yes, of course. Actually, I did so for "Africa settentrionale" campaign.

But in a campaign for Germany, with Italian allies these latter often appear with German insignas on their planes and they also speak German on the radio.

I think this is due to original lack of an Italian folder, speaking etc. which caused also sort of missing Italian interface also in DGen.

I can't refrain from complain with Oleg and TD for this shameful lack: even from original "Russian" point of view of IL2 1.0, Italian Regia Aeronautica did play a significant role, for sure not inferior to Finland and Romania, included in game from the beginning, while Italy is still missing even from TD updates.

I would hope that your DGen could fix this.

Actually the problem with Italians isn't present. If the plane is registered with the Italian squadron it in missions created by the generator will be with the Italian signs and AI will speak in Italian. It is visible that key value which operates a nationality of the plane is squadron. Unfortunately in all campaigns only one squadron - 356Squadriglia is used; wFighter; Axis; Italy. He destructive and the generator chooses him only for fighters. Other planes in mission receive squadron a cap - g01; wAll; Axis; Germany, universal squadron, but German. From here German signs and German radio negotiations. It is possible to correct it having processed campaigns and dobaviya all necessary squadrons.

Ah! Now I understand!
Since the extremely short list of italian squadrons is the following:

i01                          [It] Italy (No Unit)
356squadriglia           [It] Squadriglia 356 (Fighter)


I guess that adding "i01" to Order Of Battle like in following example won't help:

[OOB]
=i01=Stab_JG27=I_JG27=II_JG27=III_JG27=III_JG5_3=7_ZG26_=8_ZG26_=9_ZG26_=II_StG2=356squadriglia=RAF_No033SQN=RAF_No112SQN=

dobavleniye=adding (...miracle of Google translator. I don't speak Russian)

What do you mean with "processed campaigns"; I tried in the past to add further squadrons to 356a Squadriglia (of course using your DGen v.1.0.1.0), but program either ignore it or hangs if I choose it as player's squadron (e.g. 79a Squadriglia).

Thanks for your kind attention. Please help Italians to recover their history!

i01 too the cap, their generator uses it automatically, but the cap is determined only by the main conflicting countries. If you play for Germany against the USSR, the generator uses only two caps of g01 and r01. For the correct work of Italians in campaign for Germany it is necessary to add in squadrons [OOB] for bombers, transport, etc. and a number of the general, for example:

236Squadriglia;wDBomber;Axis;Italy
59Squadriglia;wBomber;Axis;Italy
388Squadriglia;wAttack;Axis;Italy
2CG-ANR-gto;wAll;Axis;Italy

The complete list of squadrons available in the generator can be found in AllWing.dat

Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: mark_009_vn on November 01, 2013, 12:02:39 AM
Hello, I'm a new forum user.


Well first, I have some bugs to report, I'm not sure if it's because of any bad changes I made... But I wanted to report here anyways:


1)Sometimes, briefing texts won't get created, I don't know what happened and it's hard for me to recreate this bug, I also don't know if it's on my part or not but it seems to be happening at random right about now. I'll do some more tests on this.


2)In oDeAttackAF missions (played as german of course), the briefing text told you to "attack a german air field".


3)Planes tend to crash into the ground at map start sometimes. Might be my part because I set the ops codes wrongly, but I don't know

For example I have a defend script that proved problematic:

oDeDefendBridge              VVS 9Ff 9P 9P 9P 9P 9P 9F          LW 8Y 4F


The script worked fine ingame most of the time, but whenever a Bf-110 spawns it will crash into the ground (and always a Bf-110, never have a problem with the Bf-109). Further investigations showed that while the Bf-110's waypoints was spawned correctly, the first waypoint's altitude was set at 0, the reason for the crash. Is it because Dgen wanted to spawn the Bf-110 at the airfield (for take-off), but somehow it cannot?

EDIT: I presume this is part of the well known "planes flying at low alt bug" that remained unable to be fixed right now?


4)I regularly have the "too many planes on airdromes" error. Can you script the way Dgen distribute it's planes for take-off to account for this limit? Also in the case the mission variant Dgen selected have too much planes for airfields to support, could you script Dgen to forgo that mission variant and choose others?

The "too many planes on airdromes" is quite a serious bug/limitation of Dgen that severely limits the plane count of each mission variant... It would be nice if you address this.




And secondly, I need to state the real reason why I wanted to post in this thread: some suggestions for future versions.

Some time ago I tried to mod Dgen for personal enjoyment, only to be put off by various hard-coded issues and limitations with the ops codes. However, ever since I've discovered your revival of Dgen, it is for the first time that it is possible to use many ops codes exclusive for PF (like for example Ff, Br and Bx) in the Eastern Front... something Dgen could not do.

I experimented with these new PF code thoroughly and figured that ops files hold massive potentials in mission designs. Unfortunately, hard-coded limitations in the original Dgen still present, only when these limits are expanded, Dgen_mod can finally generate missions that match the quality of hand crafted campaigns, something DCG can never do.

These are the limitations that are most crippling right now:

1) The code Bx and Br (which spawns bombers close to the target) are extremely useful. It can spawn bombers at will around the target area, creating a wide level of opportunities such as simulating multiple waves of air assaults, missions where you have to catch the bombers on their return trips, etc, etc. However, there are way too much limitations with this type.

First, you cannot specify the amount of escorts (only 3 for LW and 4 for VVS per flight) so it is not possible to do something like spawning un-escorted bombers en-route, or large formations of en-route bombers having adequate escorts. Maybe add a "Bxy" code that would spawn bombers without escorts, and "Bxz" code that would spawn bombers with more than 8 planes escorting?

Second, the direction of the flight with Bx and Br is randomized, while this is great, I wanted more control on where the bombers might come, especially if I want a large formation of bombers to come from one direction. If possible, maybe add a "Bxf" code that would spawn bomber from the same direction as the player's waypoint?

Third, Br and Bx is limited to calling any bomber types (while the By and Bz codes can call HBomber types), I wanted the capacity to call different types like Attack, FBomber, Paratroop, Recon, DBomber as well... If this is achieved, the possibility is endless, like having recon planes acting as a path finder before a mass formation of dive bombers follow it... If you can, could you allow "A", "dB", "R", "P",...,... to have the following "spawn at target" variants like "Ax", "dBx", "Rx", "Px",...,... as well?



2) The Ff code, borrowed from Pacific Fighter, is exceptionally handy for having random fighters approaching the target from multiple directions. It allows you to create everything from random patrols to aerial superiority in bomber missions. Unfortunately, this code is glitched and only work as intended for the attacking side, but not for the defending side, the plane that spawned for defenders will immediately try to land at the closest airfield, instead of been spawned 20-30 kms away. Can you fix the glitch so that the code will work for both sides?

Because of this bug I've always have to rely on the Bx code as a workaround for spawning fighters randomly, it's just not working so well...

However, when experimenting earlier this week, I discovered that this glitch also create interesting results, in airfield attack missions or scramble missions, these planes will try to land at the player field at map start. It's good fun seeing AI fighters strafing planes when they try to land, tons of confusion... :3

So... maybe to preserve this glitch an "L" code to spawn aircrafts that will land at the nearest airfield at map start?



OTHER UNIMPORTANT SUGGESTIONS/ FOOD FOR THOUGHT: This one is JUST a suggestion, but if you somehow managed to achieve this it would be the holy grail of dynamic campaign generation: The ability for the campaign maker to set AI planes to attack the nearest airfields, clusters, etc, independently from the main target.

For example, the campaign maker wants a mission where you as an IL-2 will strike some armor, while a another IL-2 squadron will strike the airfield close to the armor spawning fighters. The code might look like this:

oRuAttackArmor            VVS {8Y}:Main    {8B}:NearestAF        LW {8F}:Main    {8F};Main

Where "Main" specify that your squadron will attack (or as the Luftwaffe will defend) the main target of the mission, where "NearestAF" specify that the other bomber squad will attack (or as the Luftwaffe will defend) the nearest airfield from the primary target of the mission.

Think about it, if this is possible you can create complex missions with this setup, like one where you are tasked with attacking an airfield to clear the way for bombers to attack a bridge. But when you start said mission, a formation of bombers attacked your airfield instead, so you either have to choose to engage the bombers or continue with the mission. I know that Random Flights can achieve something similar, but random flights are unreliable, limited, and unpredictable, the above allow you to make the mission looks like a comprehensive air operation that took months of planning...

But since this might take some rewriting of the script, which is something quite difficult to pull off and I'm not expecting anything. So I'm not urging you to do it, in fact doing it might be a venture that could be conflicting with your other plans. But still it is some good food for thought.



In the end. Many thanks for the people that have created, tested, and make campaigns for Dgen_mod, I greatly appreciate all your efforts.

I think it would be more useful to let Bxf spawn bombers from the direction of the nearest enemy airfield.

By the way, I think I will steal your idea of using Ff flights in missions, I had never thought about this possibility before. ;)

I've a problem with static planes. I can't get them with Italian national markings (three fasces). They still show German ones (black cross). No matter the type of aircraft: G.50, S.79, Fi.156... all!

The typical line of related [episode_name]Blue.mis is as follows:

  352_Static vehicles.planes.Plane$CR_42 2 5979.88 47479.77 439.10 0.0 it

so plane is specified as belonging to Italy RA; this notwithstanding, its insignia remain German.

Great work by Asura.    Not sure where to post this bug but using DGEN 2.0.0.9 I am not getting credit for any kills during a mission.  Neither air to air nor air to ground.    In other words after I hit apply at end of mission the summary shows no kill credits.  I`m using 4.12.1 with hsfx7.0 but same thing happens just using 4.12.1.     It may not be a dgen problem but would appreciate any suggestions.

From a few tests I did, I would point out that following statements in DGen_mod Manual v2.0.1.0 (page 3):

"DGen_MOD is based upon the source code of DGen 4.0.4.1 and is fully compatible with IL-2 Sturmovik version 4.071m or above."

and at page 6:

"The old date format is still supported for backward compatibility with the existing dynamic campaigns."

applies exactly with the only exception of campaigns where dates are NOT before 1941; I mean, some episode, like China 1940 in the old Ojcar's "Asia for the Asians", which uses the date format 00913 (13 Sep. 1940), lets start with first mission, but at its end program hangs. To fix, both dates in DB and OPS files must be rewritten in the new date format (e.g.  "00101:50814:A" in ops file ---> "19400101:19450814:A").

The problem has nothing to do with 4.12, it is a problem of the old DGen code by Starshoy. When stationary planes of minor nations (Hungary, Italy, Australia, etc.) are placed in the red and blue template files, their nationality is changed in the missions and they appear with German, British or American markings. If you need an example look at my Hungarian campaigns. I have placed Hungarian Bf-109 at Veszprem airfield, but in the missions they show German markings.

Is there any way to change default fuel load for a certain plane?  For instance 100% fuel is rarely needed for P51s for most of the missions in game.  I'd prefer a 50% or 40% load for typical short range escort missions. Is there any way I can set that in any of the files?  User selectable fuel load is only available for squadron and flight leaders.  If you start your career at low ranks, you can't set it.

Unfortunately now it isn't possible. Also it isn't sure that I will make it in the future. It isn't possible to make calculation of necessary amount of fuel practically. The expense strongly depends on power setting, and addition in the generator of all parameters of all engines isn't reasonably labor-consuming.

Asura,

I replaced PBN with PBY in a campaign and it works, but the PBY always starts in midair with its engines off, so it soon crashes.

I too noticed that its start altitude is always set to 0 (zero) metres, on the contrary of other "airstarting" planes who get 1000 m.

I'm using your DGen_mod v.2.0.1.0. I added PBY only to AllPlane.DB copying PBN values. Other features are detailed in the *Planes.dat file.

I see. Another question.  I edited Allplanes, allweapons and planedb files for P51D25na,which is not a stock plane, but a HSFX plane.  When I start the mission, I got a big pink propeller and no cockpit.  I know some folks have succesfully added planes into dgen mod.  Just wonder what I am missing here?

Check arms for P51D25n in the AllWeapons.dat file. The incorrect arms cause such consequences.

Ok, I'll take a look.  Btw, did those folks from 242 give you the updated HSFX plane list?  I thought they were working on it.

I realized it was the name of the bombs not getting recognized.  I tried 2x500lb; 2x500lb bombs etc.  None of them worked.  How do I get Dgen to recognize the weapons?

I replaced PBN with PBY in a campaign and it works, but the PBY always starts in midair with its engines off, so it soon crashes.

The generator doesn't operate behavior of the plane, I faced problems at start of engines in MOD game versions. Check in the simple editor if engines don't work it is necessary to deal with additions.

Quote
I too noticed that its start altitude is always set to 0 (zero) metres, on the contrary of other "airstarting" planes who get 1000 m.

I'm using your DGen_mod v.2.0.1.0. I added PBY only to AllPlane.DB copying PBN values. Other features are detailed in the *Planes.dat file.

I've PBY in "Pacific War" campaign (still working with DGen_mod v1.0.1.0) where it has no glitches.

Add arms in the AllWeapons.dat file, this file the main, and * Planes.dat simply corrects admissible arms and parameters of its application. Because of absence of data in AllWeapons.dat you receive zero height.

Awesome.  It worked.  Just another observation.  For the pacific maps such as Tarawa, the cloud height is so low.  Some touch the water.  Is there any way that I can put clouds at the right altitude?

I added lines for new aircraft in AllWeapons.dat file, but I've still difficulties to clearly understand some expression I found on currently available explanation. I can't find meaning of "weeds to a point", while I just guess that "maintenance" is for "patrol". Furthermore, for some aircraft like Ki-61 I notice ventral tank gets the "true" value (1) at place that in your instruction is for "Torpedo":

KI_61_IHEI;4500;4500;0;0;0;0;0;0;1;1;1;0;0;1;0;0;1;0;2x150dt;All

Hi all
I have install this mod in order to play the awsome MTO and Reich Defense campaigns by Boelcke over a 4.12.2 + HSFX7

At the beginning the campaigns are superb but I'm having a problem. After play a mission in whatever campaign and press the apply button.
The game freeze and I have to kill it. After that when I try to acces to the campaign I see that this its empty or corrupted... ???

Please, if someone can help me...?

Thanks in advance

Using SAS modact how do I install this Dgen ? Does it goes in the main folder or should I use another one ?

Please read "DGen_UserManual_En.pdf" which comes with DGen_mod.

At any rate, firstly, DGen_mod does not require per se any ModPack like SAS modact (as well as HSFX etc.): it just replaces in the main game folder (usually "IL-2 Sturmovik 1946") stock DGen.exe by Starshoy, working in a different way. Secondly, DGen_mod requires to be installed essentially the two files DGen.exe (obviously the Asura's one) and DGen_mod.ini (this latter can be personalized at will, according to instruction contained inside the above mentioned manual) and its MOD folder, this latter dropped into the game DGen folder.

Of course, you must have done a backup of original DGen.exe, if you want to restore it lately.

That's all,
GB

guys, that´s an outdated version of Asuras dgen.exe mod, with a lot of bugs and troubles - please do only use the up to date version of the files, version 2.0.1.0 yet, no one on earth can give propper support when people are using various and outdated versions

Ok, thanks for the info Boelcke.

I got the impression that version 2.0.1.0 was not to be used for 4.10.1 since there are  dat files only for 4.11 and 4.12.

Asura wrote (regarding DBW):

Awesome.  It worked.  Just another observation.  For the pacific maps such as Tarawa, the cloud height is so low.  Some touch the water.  Is there any way that I can put clouds at the right altitude?

Anything strange - simply correct lines of arms, same as the full editor removes. :) To a question of clouds - the generator establishes height of clouds from 500 meters and above and it doesn't depend on map. Can do it there was a haze or fog?

I added lines for new aircraft in AllWeapons.dat file, but I've still difficulties to clearly understand some expression I found on currently available explanation. I can't find meaning of "weeds to a point", while I just guess that "maintenance" is for "patrol". Furthermore, for some aircraft like Ki-61 I notice ventral tank gets the "true" value (1) at place that in your instruction is for "Torpedo":

KI_61_IHEI;4500;4500;0;0;0;0;0;0;1;1;1;0;0;1;0;0;1;0;2x150dt;All

The position correct is arms is used in the first long range type.

Hi all
I have install this mod in order to play the awsome MTO and Reich Defense campaigns by Boelcke over a 4.12.2 + HSFX7

At the beginning the campaigns are superb but I'm having a problem. After play a mission in whatever campaign and press the apply button.
The game freeze and I have to kill it. After that when I try to acces to the campaign I see that this its empty or corrupted... ???

Please, if someone can help me...?

Thanks in advance

What in this case is in log files? Also check in conf.ini has to be so:

eventlog=eventlog.lst
eventlogkeep=0

Files for DBW isn´t related to Il2 versions, it´s related to the data for the mod planes.

Sorry but I don't quite understand.

In the DGen 2.0.1.0 zip-file there are two folders 4.11 and 4.12 containing these files: AllWeapons.dat, AllPlaneDB.dat,AllClasses.dat and the manual describes the installation and shows a picture where you are to select program version: 4.11 or 4.12.
That gave me the impression DGen 2.0.1.0 didn't work with other versions.

Does it work with other versions and if it does what should I do during the installation where I only can select version 4.11 or 4.12? 

I'm using version 4.10.1 + UP3 + DBW.

What DGen_mod really needs is to find data for working planes (essentially, those that you call in DB files of your campaign). Exempli gratia: in the following excerpt from a DB file, you may see a stock plane (green) and a non-stock one (red);

[Squadrons]
IJA_F_S_50z KI_44_IIOTSU
skin:Ki44_50Sentai_Burma1944.bmp
IJA_F_S_59z KI_43_II
skin:Macwan_KI43IIb_Sen59_Chu2_43unmkd.bmp
[Planes]
10 KI_44_IIOTSU $J44_Ki-44-II_Generic_4-1.bmp
10 KI_43_II AI-Ki43-0-1-7.bmp

DGen_mod will search in its AllPlaneDB.dat, AllWeapons.dat and AllClasses.dat related data. Since it can't find KI_44_IIOTSU, you'll get a beep and an error message in your DGen_modERROR.log like: "Can't find KI_44_IIOTSU".

The inverse, that's to say redundant planes in above mentioned DAT files does not harm.

For instance, I play 4.09+UP2.01 with DGen_mod 2.0.1.0 and its DAT files for 4.12, adding required lines for extra planes as I add them to my campaign. Asura's team is working to have sets of DAT files ready for main available modpacks, as DBW, to facilitate their users.

It is logical to me that airfield transfer will depend on the situation, therefore due to the dynamic nature of DGEN that the transfer may diverge from history.

A good idea, as long as it is only intended for the players unit. For AI units it will surely cause problems. In my opinion it is also better to put this option in the Settings file.

That happens when you start a campaign in 1940.

You must edit the relevant DB file (should be "Africa40.DB") by NotePad and replace all dates like in the example below:

Then start again (not retake) from its begin the campaign, deleting the crashed one.

I couldn't know which was the campaign since Darth_Dooboss didn't specify it. I just guessed it could be same problem I experienced with campaigns starting in 1940, which work with stock DGen and instead give exactly the error described by Darth_Dooboss when played by Asura's DGen_mod.
I fixed them as I described above. So I was sure about cause and remedy, simply they do not apply to your campaigns which look to have peculiar problems.

I already highlighted this compatibility problem: examples are Ojcar's "Asia for the Asians" and Ijekio's "Africa". Was just this latter's DB file that I reported above.

I cannot build French campaigns which work regularly. I mean, I build campaign, regiment is Normandie Niemen, map is Normandy, time is 1940, and all works fine for a few missions. Then all gets messed up: British planes have American markings (and speak American on the radio), French planes have British markings, most missions start in midair, and so on.

Same campaign, when played on British side works well: all missions start on a runway, British are British and French allies are French, always with French markings and speaking French on the radio. There are NO Americans...

At any rate, I found a work-around: just left the British fly French fighters and American the British bombers, BUT setting French skins for the former and British ones for the latter. The only inconvenience is hearing on the radio French mates of secondary flights speaking english and British bomber crews in american slang. :(

Post by: Treetop64 on February 20, 2014, 10:58:13 PM
Asura,

I just wanted to thank you and those helping you for all the work you've done with the DGen mod.

I've been building DGen campaigns for years now, through several versions of the game.  They're experimental in nature and only been for my own enjoyment - such as it is - and I've never uploaded them because they are not quite at the quality I would like to have my signature attached to for the public.  This is mostly because the default DGen is so damned obnoxiously restrictive in allowing what you can and (mostly) can't do in campaign building!  It leaves hardly any room for experimentation, which has been very frustrating.

I've recently downloaded your latest version (v2.0.1.0) and it is a massive improvement over not only the default DGen, but earlier version of your work!  Maybe I'll finally be able to create something that's worth uploading now after all.  Thank you!

Just a couple of questions:

I noticed that when starting a campaign all of the AI pilots in the players unit get flooded with awards and medals in the first few days of the campaign.  Is this a known issue, and are there plans to fix this?

Also, in generating random flights, does "AirIntensity" and "RandomFlights" serve different purposes in the current version of the DGen mod?  In the default version of DGen, "AirIntensity" added or subtracted the number of aircraft in the flights called up in the chosen line of the campaign's .ops file for both European and Pacific campaigns, in addition to also generating random flights only on Pacific campaigns.  "RandomFlights", however, just generated random flights on European campaigns - it had no effect on Pacific campaigns.

I'm asking if those two commands now have distinctly separate, exclusive functions in the new DGen:  Does "AirIntensity" now only have the job of adding extra aircraft to the mission's flights called up in the .ops file, without generating random flights on Pacific campaigns?  Does "RandomFlights" now create random flights on both European and Pacific maps?  It would be nice to have the flexibility in having distinctly separate configurable functions that control how many aircraft are generated for mission flights, and in how many separate random flights are generated, if any, to equal measure on both European and Pacific maps.  The lack of this flexibility was a major sore spot when creating missions and .ops files in the default version of the generator.

Again, thank you so much for all the work.  It is very well appreciated!
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: greybeard on February 21, 2014, 12:19:31 AM
I think RandomFlights has been disabled in v.2: indeed, whilst mentioned in Manual of version 1, it is missing from v.2 one.

I notice that random flights are now generated in all theaters like before in PTO only, so should be function of AirIntensity, which works like before about adding or removing aircraft from ops file mission flights.

Other two functions have been disabled, as stated on v.2 Manual: CampaignLength and MissionDistance.

I think Asura can confirm this.

Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Asura on February 23, 2014, 10:34:40 PM
Initial installation of awards and quantity of perfect departures was made for approach to reality - seldom fighting groups were formed of one beginners. Already there were requests to make at the initial stage all group with zero values, it is possible later I will add through parameter in ini the file.

And the AirIntensity parameter works without changes - increases or reduces the predetermined quantities of planes in groups of their ops file.

In the version 2.x the algorithm of RandomFlights from Pacific in which the RandomFlights parameter doesn't work is realized. Completion of algorithm of RandomFlights one of the main immediate tasks after which realization this parameter again can earn.

I'm having a Devil of a time getting this to work in IL2 1946 v 4.12.2M/HSFX 7.0. When I use the installer it copies every thing over into the IL2 installation except the DGen.exe file. When I copy that in manually, then generate and attempt to start a stock or custom campaign, the game and the computer lock up and I have the following message on the desktop:

(https://a4-images.myspacecdn.com/images04/1/95248d532f71422096dd34afd01a0284/full.jpg)

I have also installed Asura's Plane Database files for HSFX.

I have this modded DGen working quite well with IL2 V 4.12.2M SAS Modact 5.3.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Thanks,
Scott

Hi Tony, Thanks for the reply.

Not sure what you mean. These are not campaigns/careers created by me. It happens with all the stock careers and a couple of Boelcke's after I generate a career and hit the start button (on the page where you can pick what unit, a/c, you want to start the campaign/career with).

Scott

Hi Asura,

Thank you for the reply. I've  only tried Luftwaffe campaigns, either a stock one, or Boelcke's (West Front for HSFX or Murmansk). I get the error with HSFX 7.0 and also with a 7.02 install.

Hi Asura

I'm making a campaign in the western front map for the battle of the bulge and I would like to include the B-26 for the USAAF.
Can you tell me what files I have to modify. I got a 4.12.2m HSFX7.0.2.

Other question is if you can set the airfield from what the player can be based in order to do more accurately campaigns.
I have tried to put all the others airfields under the [AC OFF] but doesn't work, you appears in the air...

Thanks for your work

I second this.

Random Flights in particular was great for immersion.  A great shame this no longer works.

Also, you might want to reconsider how AI awards are issued.  For example, in a German campaign, all of the junior and middle-level AI squadmates are being awarded a flood medals at the very start of a campaign, including Knights Crosses and the further decorated Knights Crosses beyond, for doing absolutely nothing.  The default DGen handling of awards was good enough, was fairly accurate, and was user-configurable in the config.ini.  There was no need to accelerate it to the point where it is now, as it's now completely unrealistic.

I mostly like what you've done for the new DGen, but now some of the changes are actually hurting the game instead of enhancing it.

What you're talking about is a function of the mission schedule in a campaign's .DB files, and is not affected by Mission Distance.  Mission Distance only sets a preference of the distance flown to an objective on the map.

I would only point out that RandomFlights is not at all missing: it is harmonized with AirIntensity. That's to say that random flights are still generated, just tied in quantity to general aerial activity. Perusing DGen_mod.log, for instance, often you may notice that a "vulcher" flight may be generated close to player's starting base, simulating an unpredicted enemy attack (of course, I'm not speaking of scramble missions). I think this is an improvement in respect of previous one, as well as the original DGen RandomFlights option, since it is not a "customary" staff flight, soon landing after mission start, and of no significance in mission deployment.

Now that you mention it I've noticed that there's usually one friendly and one enemy flight unrelated to the player. I don't think that that is an improvement however as the sky still feels empty. I remember that with the old DGen I would often see 5 or more random flights and I would often get reinforcements when i requested help, the AI would also engage more forces etc.

It used to feel more immersive than now when there are at most 2 flights from each side airborne over a large air space.

I think this is an improvement in respect of previous one, as well as the original DGen RandomFlights option, since it is not a "customary" staff flight, soon landing after mission start, and of no significance in mission deployment.

The RandomFlights function often generated more than just the staff flights you refer to, and they were a minority of random flights created.  Moreover, no matter how insignificant they might seem to the actual mission, those "returning" staff flights still added a level of immersion to the game that is now missing.

The problem with tying the random flights function with air intensity is that in order for the player to see random flights generated during campaigns, he must also increase the quantity of elements of flights that are directly called for in the ops file.  Frankly, with AirIntensity set to high, I'm still not seeing random flights, while the mission-specific flights (the flights and numbers of aircraft specifically called up for in the ops file) are certainly altered.

The latter is not always desirable, especially for European campaigns, and particularly for certain phases of air combat on the Eastern Front.

Firstly, when using the default DGen, and with AirIntensity and RandomFlights being separate functions, increasing Air Intensity actually decreased the chance of seeing random flights generated, even if RandomFlights is set at 5.  There is no indication given that this situation has been rectified in any version of the DGen mod.  Secondly, eluding to European and Eastern Front campaigns, increasing AirIntensity is not always desirable from an aesthetic, "feel of the mission" point of view, depending on the campaign design.  Usually mission designers set up the ops files according to how they want the actual misison-specific flights to be generated, with AirIntensity set to normal, and letting DGen take care of extra generated random flights with RandomFlights set to 5.  Setting AirIntensity to High increases not only the number of aircraft in an element, but increases the number of elements within a flight as well (i.e. 4Y becomes 4Y 4F; 2F becomes 3F 3F; 6F becomes 4F 4F, etc.).  Obviously, in addition to reducing the chances that random flights are generated, this significantly skews the composition of the mission-specific flights on both sides, and this effect is not always desired, depending on how the designer aims to make a particular phase of the campaign feel.

Everything changes on Pacific campaigns (or any campaign using the pacific mission generation mechanics).  In the default DGen, RandomFlights did not function for Pacific campaigns, while AirIntensity still functioned.  However, the campaign designer could assign more than one mission a day for Pacific campaigns, something that could not be done for European campaigns.  I'm only speculating based on my own experiences using it, but it seems as though DGen Mod uses the Pacific mission generation mechanics for both Pacific and European campaigns, while doing away with the European mechanics (and it's benefit of generating random flights) altogether.

There is a level of flexibility in having separate functions for AirIntensity and RandomFlights that is now lacking in the current setup of tying them together under one switch, which is presumably "have them both or not at all".  With AirIntensity set to Normal and RandomFlights set to 5 (for both the default config and the DGen mod config), I fly Eastern Front campaigns on both the latest default DGen (v4.0.8.7), and the latest DGen mod, and I can assure you that the level of random flights generated on the default generator is much more apparent than on mission generated from the mod DGen, where random flights don't seem to ever appear.  This is also the case when I set the DGen mod config AirIntensity to high; As expected, I get more aircraft in mission-specific flights, but still no random flights that are out doing their own thing.

Speaking of DGen_mod, I'm getting random flights with AirIntensity set to Low.

It's a while that I'm no more using stock DGen, but AFAIK third number in each [Schedule] row works for both ETO and PTO as follows:

negative (e.g.: -1) = night mission
null (i.e.: 0) = dawn or dusk mission
positive (e.g.: 2) = number of missions in that day

Of course. Also, I agree about avoiding to alter AirIntensity, when possible.

I am trying to add DO 335 V13 to the russian fighter campaign (dont ask me why I want to do this...)
I have changed the ALLPLANES.dat to make the fighter allies-USSR (used definition from another fighter basically)
I then added it to the planesRUF.dat
I can see the plane and able to select it in the campaign creation menu
I am able to generate campaign with the fighter

The troubles start when I am about to launch the mission :
1) I cannot select "Arming" menu, the button clicks but nothing happens
2) when I launch the mission, I stare at a tree with no plane being spawned (I assume). I am unable to control anything/fire guns etc.

What am I missing?

Also, I am running UP3 which has flyable B-17, I tried adding B_17G to the AllClasses as well as changing B17 to USSR, to be able to use it in the USSR heavy bomber campaign, but :

- I am unable to select the plane from the drop down menu when I generate the campaign
- When I force the plane through adding it to the already made campaign (conf and status edits) the Dgen crashes with error message that "The plane cannot be found in AllClasses.dat". While the plane is there, is flyable, and I checked the spelling which is correct (as I was copy pasting, not writing it myself).

I am trying to add DO 335 V13 to the russian fighter campaign

AFAIK, adding a new plane to DGen_mod inventory to have it flyable in relevant campaigns requires following steps:

1). Edit AllPlaneDB.dat adding related string (BTW, Do 335V-13 is already included in DGen_mod 2.0.1.0!) wherever you want (preferably in alphabetical order):

Code: [Select]
DO_335V13;Axis;0;Germany;None;None;1;Fighter;Fbomber;None;None;1800;420;1164;0;0;0
2). Edit AllWeapons.dat adding all required rows (one for each available ordnance, including "default" and "none"):

Code: [Select]
DO_335V13;4500;4500;0;0;0;0;0;0;1;1;1;0;0;1;0;0;0;0;default;All
DO_335V13;4500;4500;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;none;All
DO_335V13;500;500;1;1;1;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;2sc250;All
DO_335V13;500;500;1;1;1;1;1;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;1sc500;All
DO_335V13;500;500;1;0;1;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;8sc50;All
DO_335V13;500;500;1;0;1;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;8sc70;All
DO_335V13;500;500;1;0;1;0;0;1;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;2xab250;All
DO_335V13;500;500;1;1;1;1;1;1;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;1sd500;All
DO_335V13;500;500;1;0;1;0;0;1;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;1ab500;All
DO_335V13;500;500;1;1;1;1;1;1;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;0;1sc1000;All

This is where I too stumbled earlier; missing rows cause the plane starting mission at low level, with its engines off, soon crashing.

3). Edit AllClasses.dat (mandatory only if that plane is set flyable in AllPlaneDB.dat) adding relevant row:

Code: [Select]
DO_335A0;true;ALL;0;0;0
Good luck!

DO_335V13;Allies;0;USSR;None;None;1;FBomber;Fighter;None;None;1800;420;1164;0;0;0

AllClasses :

AllWeapons :

Saska,

do you mean you replaced existing lines in AllPlaneDB and added B_17G to AllClasses?

If yes, you didn't need really all that: you can set in campaigns any plane at any side and any nation, indeed (e.g.: I've in my campaigns Hurricane I, which is Axis, set to Allies, with no changes in AllPlaneDB), you just should set "1" (for "flyable") in B_17G row (in addition to adding the line for this latter to AllClasses, as you already did).

Honestly, I think error relies elsewhere in your campaign construction; you may still try semplifying as I mentioned the two files, then, if error persist, still try asking (although personally I fear to be unable to help).

Cheers,
GB

P.S.: did you make a [episode_name]Planes.dat file?

In a 4.12.2 HSFX7.0.2 with Assura last version

I'm creating a pair of campaigns about german jets over the Ardennas. WF44 map
I have created all the neccesary files and the campaign it's running for the Me262A2(debugging phase) but with the Ar234 doesnt work even load.
When I select the campaign the screen only show the background... nothing!!! No beep
In essence are the same files, only change the ops file, to test it I only use this: oDeBombBridge, oDeBombTown, oBlueFTransfer.

I have set the AllClasses file to AR_234B2;true;BOMBER;0;0;0

I don't know WTF is going on... Can someone help me?

oDeBombBridge and oDeBombTown aren't ground attack missions, they are bomber escorts. You have to use oDeAttackxxx missions in your ops file. Moreover oDeFTransfer is only for fighters, you will need oDeBTransfer.

I don't think it is necessary to change the AllClasses file. It is better not to touch any of the files in the DGen\MOD folder.

Check the campaigns*.dat, planes*.dat and squadrons*.dat files for your campaign. In these files there are values which game isn't able to process. As a rule it names squadrons, planes or subcampaigns.

campaignsDe¤.dat

* Boelckes Kuban campaign
Dynamic campaign for II./JG52.
F_Kuban42 Kuban 1942: Rush for asia
F_Kuban43 Kuban 1943: Kuban 1943

planesDe¤.dat

[F_Kuban42]   - these names have to coincide completely in two files by quantity and writing
BF_109G2                                   - names of planes from air.ini
[F_Kuban43]
BF_109G2

In your situation game yet didn't start DGen as there were problems at a stage of a choice of the plane and the first campaign.

Thank you very much Assura... you are the MASTER!!!

In fact, in the process of copy/paste one letter was missing... >:(

I hope that after test both campaign all the people can enjoy of them  ;)

Hi All,
I know this problem has been talked about before but I have searched and could not find it. I'm having air starts in Juri's Manchuria Khalkingol Campaign with the SB-2. Could someone direct me to that fix?

Thanks,
Stromboli

It is caused by wrong entries in the AllPlanesDB file for HSFX.

change the line:
SB_2M100A;Allies;0;USSR;None;None;0;Bomber;None;Reconplane;None;2187;210;1130;0;0;0
to:
SB_2M100A;Allies;0;USSR;None;None;1;Bomber;None;Reconplane;None;2187;210;1130;0;0;0

I have a question regarding Asuras Dgen file.
I am currently running Boelcke's Westfront campaign and getting strange results. Firstly kill numbers are very weird, sometimes up in the thousands and secondly I am getting constantly killed especially on successful completion of missions. I even tried running it through without contact, returned to base, landed, ended the mission and again was told I had been killed.
Is there a bug or two in this file? Has anyone else been experience anomalies in the campaign
It is a shame as it is ruining the campaign for me and making it unplayable

Send me campaign files from the Missions\Campaign... folder and all log files. I will check.

Which files and how do I send them to you. I restarted the campaign and all ran well for 6 missions, then 7th mission killed me again and been killed every subsequent mission. I was going to try the Luftwaffe version to see if the campaign runs ok, what do you think, is it worth it
And thanks for replying.

When I try to start stock Midway sub-campaign  (part of the IJN fighter career) with Asura's DGen_mod installed, IL-2 hangs and I get following message:


(http://s30.postimg.cc/aaejrdtrl/Midway_Error.jpg) (http://postimage.org/)

It happens only with Midway, among sub-campaigns of above mentioned stock career.

The same Midway sub-campaign starts with Starshoy's DGen.

It is necessary to check files of this sub-campaign - where the mistake and the generator can't correctly sort that lines.

Campaign identification is IN1 (campaignsIN1.dat, etc.). They are all files dated 2004. I am unable to perform such a control.

After a long break the next version of the generator is ready. In it while there are no big changes, time was spent on debugging of available algorithms and on addition of data for different versions of game. In the following versions precisely there will be new types of missions and other changes. For now here:

v2.0.1.2 (20/06/2014)
+ user manual v.2.1
+ the algorithm of use drop tanks is reworked
+ added data on aircraft (528 lines) and armament (over 6000 lines)
+ corrected errors, caused collisions of large aircraft groups during the start of a mission
+ the MissionDistance parameter reworked - allowed values: Full - full flight distance, Medium - 75%, Short - 50%
+ the CampaignLength parameter reworked - it works as in the first version, but also takes into account the number of flights during the day
+ other errors corrected

v2.0.1.1 (01/04/2014)
+ corrected routes for strike groups, attacking moving targets
+ corrected markings of stationary aircraftmarkings
+ added data for Bessarabia and Slovakia maps (by Juri_JS and Lagarto)
+ added aircraft data for DBW 1.71
+ added aircraft data for HSFX 7 (by IV/JG7_4Shades and Charlie Chap)
+ other errors corrected

Is it working well with Asura's or Boelcke campaigns or shall we wait for "patches" ?
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Juri_JS on June 20, 2014, 11:15:22 AM
The changes in 2.0.1.2 are mostly bug fixes and some new features. Theoretically a campaign that works without problems in 2.0.1.0 should also work in 2.0.1.2.

Nonetheless I will rework most of my campaigns over the next month to use some of the new features.

FYI, Asura never made campaigns, while you're missing Juri, who build a lot of them. Even a certain Greybeard did, say, a dozen campaigns for Asura's DGen.

Hi all

I'm having problems with the kills acount, the program doesn't count any kill after update to the new version.
In fact I begin a new campaign and the outcome it's the same, no kills!!!
And after played 2 missions in both Bolecke campaigns over Normandy (7 B17 shootdown) and Tunisia (6 B24 shootdown) my feelings are very sad...
Too, I have problems with a campaign for the Me262&Ar234 in the WF44 map, before the update the campaign load and now I got an error...

I'm having problems with the kills acount, the program doesn't count any kill after update to the new version.
In fact I begin a new campaign and the outcome it's the same, no kills!!!

Check in settings of game (conf.ini), has to be:

Too, I have problems with a campaign for the Me262&Ar234 in the WF44 map, before the update the campaign load and now I got an error...

Campaign most likely isn't suitable for DGen_MOD 2.0.1.2 - there is a problem with a front line or initial airfields.

P.S.: I played the 488 km-to-target mission getting still more than 70 liters of fuel left in my tanks when I was returned over my carrier, ready to land:
(http://greybeard.xoom.it/virgiliowizard/sites/default/files/photos/image_3/thumb_182/448x336_crop_thumb_fuel_left.jpg)
so it looks mainly a question of coherence between distance to target and external tanks provision.

P.P.S.: during Burma campaign it is historically important to have transport intercept mission by Japanese. So far (v2.0.1.0) it wasn't allowed to play on this map such kind of mission, but I've just realized that v2.0.1.2 allows transport intercept mission in PTO. My compliments, Asura, and a big thanks to you!

No, sir. It was an escort mission (escorting B5N to Pearl Harbour on 7 December 1941). Indeed, keeping to play with this latest DGen,  I'm getting drop tank only for escort missions.

Let me add one more notice.

Unfortunately, multiple missions in one day is still a mess: dusk missions are still generated (e.g.: start at 18:46 whilst settings are "False 17 6") as well as next mission at a time BEFORE previous one (e.g.: 1st mission start 12:30, second mission of same day starts at 8:15)! This didn't happen with Starshoy's DGen: would be interesting to detect how that worked. Here follows an example got from stock IJN Fighter career on Marianas sub-campaign where all FIVE missions are generated on same day:

19 June 1944

0715
0945
1145
1400
1545

Please notice the time interval (not less than 1h 45m) and that even the last one starts at a time (1545) enough to perform mission before local sunset in June (around 1800).

Asura,

This is great.  Do you have or plan to release a reference manual with an explanation for all the files needed for a campaign to include all the code words?  (that is, in addition to the use manual PDF).

Also, is there a way to use the same airplane for both Blue and Red teams when building a campaign? (for example SB, DB-3, I-153 for Finnish campaign)

Thanks for a great addition.

Asura,

As an amateur programmer myself, I fully realize how hard it is sometimes to implement a seemingly simple request, but you understand your code for the new DGEN.

Considering my question above regarding using the same plane for two separate teams (again in the specific example of Finland using captured SBs, DB-3s, LaGG-3s, Pe-2/3s, I-16s, I-153s), how hard would it be to implement that?

I was thinking interpreting the following:

In the AllPlaneDB.dat file in the DGEN\MOD folder:
* Allow the "Faction" parameter to accept a third value of "Multi", so acceptable strings would be Allies, Axis and Multi

So today, by default one of the SBs are listed as:
Code: [Select]
SB_2M103;Allies;0;USSR;None;None;0;Bomber;None;Reconplane;None;1800;230;1130;0;0;0
With my suggested modification, it would be something like:
Code: [Select]
SB_2M103;Multi;1;USSR;Finland;None;1;Bomber;None;Reconplane;None;1800;230;1130;0;0;0
Multi would mean two factions use the plane, with the MultiNation field set to 1, and with the right country...

Of course to make that work, there would have to be some specific changes in how your DGEN interprets the data in the [campaign].DB file... take for example, "Finland41.DB" in the DGEN folder...

Currently for the plane I am using in the example above, the "[Planes]" section has the following:
Code: [Select]
25 SB_2M103
Say I want to specify that 8 SBs are available to Finland in that campaign file and the 25 mentioned are Russian... perhaps the [Planes] section would take the default country, or first mentioned out of the 3 countries in the Nation field for the AllPlaneDB.dat, then you could also have [PlanesRed] for specific planes that are in the Red team and [PlanesBlue] for the other team... but that maybe complicated and may yield wrong results

Perhaps the best way to deal with the ".DB" file is to have it in the following format for the "[Planes]" section:
(NumberofPlanes) (PlaneCode) [Optional: specific country digraph]
So...
Code: [Select]
25 SB_2M103
8 SB_2M103 fi

... means for that campaign there are 25 SBs to default (USSR, which is the first Nation in AllPlaneDB.dat) and 8 to Finland.

I figured I might as well suggest it. (I tried using the SBs for a Bomber campaign for Finland, but unless I specified the SB to be an Axis plane in AllPlaneDB, the campaign engine would freak  out and Generate a mission for the Red Team)

Dan,

you don't need any code: Asura's DGen already does what you're asking for. No matter what country is set in AllPlaneDB, you can pick any aircraft to play for any country (just set the proper one in your customized XXXplanes.dat).

As an example, watch East Africa (http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=4424): there you fly a Hurricane Mk.I for British Allies; if you try same thing with stock DGen you'll get a "beep" and error message. Of course, you must set relevant line in GBD_Africa41Planes.dat as follows:
Code: [Select]
Allies   England    Fighter         HurricaneMkIa        300 3000 3000 default 1that's to say Allies and England instead of default Axis and Finland.

That's all.

Cheers,
GB

greybeard,

Have a question.  I did what you told me and it works.  I created a "Finland41Planes.dat" file with info on the SB plane and it worked well (I only included info on the SB and Blenheims).  But here is the problem, there were way too many Finnish SBs in some of the missions.  The Finns had about 15 or so captured M103 SBs (historically)... so it would be nice to limit them.  Is there a way to do that?  I figured the only way to do that would be to have different parameters that would limit planes explicitly in "Finland41.DB".

Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: greybeard on June 29, 2014, 02:59:00 AM
I think you should include in Finland41Planes.dat all aircraft involved (actually same you set in your DB file) since this allows you to have control on their cruising speed (often unreal - hampering rendez-vous).

Your guess is right: you must change number of available SB in Finland41.DB. Edit it an find following line:
Code: [Select]
[Planes]
...
25 SB_2M103
reducing 25 to 15.

Only problem is that then the USSR would also be limited by the same number, that is why I was looking for a solution in the [episode].DB file that specified the numbers available for Red and Blue teams separately (say 25 SB_2M103 Allies, and 15 SB_2M103 Axis) when they happen to use same types of planes... I know very seldom that occurred but it was a reality for the Continuation War.

I understand this maybe too much trouble to put in code, so that is why I was asking if it was possible and I just didn't get it from the readme file.  If it can't be done I totally understand... it is a case of exception rather than the rule.  Thank you for the help.

Here follows an example got from stock IJN Fighter career on Marianas sub-campaign where all FIVE missions are generated on same day:

In escort missions suspended tanks are established for increase in a reserve of fuel. Some planes, for example P-40, possess very small stock of fuel which is quickly spent especially in maintenance missions. To avoid falling of planes on a back course I made 45% a reserve in range calculations. So existence of tanks it not a mistake in your case.

The problem with departure time to me is known and will be solved in one of the following versions.
Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Asura on June 29, 2014, 11:57:14 PM
I will answer other questions with one message :)

1 . The user's guide is in permanent job, I very much want to describe all formats and values which are used by the generator. It demands some time, but I will try to add for each new version in the instruction something new. I hope to an exit 2.0.2.0 to add the description of the settings and ops files.

2. The mechanism of use of one plane is realized by the different countries long ago through the DB file. Here http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=20104.msg327046#msg327046 (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=20104.msg327046#msg327046) and here http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=20104.msg327255#msg327255 (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=20104.msg327255#msg327255) I told as it to make.

3. Local files *Planes.dat are used for definition of arms of the plane in each concrete campaign. It is better to appoint the country in DB. It is possible to do without *Planes.dst files if the standard set of arms completely is suitable for campaign.

Post by: greybeard on June 30, 2014, 01:36:53 AM
@Uberdemon

As you may read from Asura's explanation, there's the option to set two different quantities, according to country; so you should modify DB file as follows:
Code: [Select]
[Planes]
...
Allies USSR 25 SB_2M103
Axis Finland 15 SB_2M103
I was unaware of this possibility.


@Asura

Thanks for the explanation: in fact this makes sense. Actually, I read in literature that, as a rule, combat range is computed as no more than 1/3 of ferry range (one third to reach the target, one third to RTB, one third to combat and stay on target); so drop tank should be provided (at least) when target distance goes beyond 33% of current "range" item inside game files. This fraction may reduce up to 1/5, in actual instances (e.g.: patrolling), so leaving up to 60% fuel for "reserve".

Thank you also for planned fix to scheduling of multiple missions in a day.

I was glad to learn, by answer you gave to Uberdemon, another significant feature of your DGen. It makes me think how many features we are missing, lost among the 81 (so far) pages of this thread. Definitely desirable including them in the manual.

If you have the time, could you give me a hand again?  So I tried modifying the Finish dynamic fighter campaign again...

Trying to start small, and only changing the Finland41 episode, I put the following in the "planesFiF.dat" file:
Code: [Select]
[Finland41]
GLADIATOR1J8A

P_36A4
I_153_M62
I_153P
...

Note I added the "trophy" I-153s so I could start the campaign flying captured Soviet planes with Finnish markings...

I also did the following in the "[Planes]" section of "Finland41.DB":
Code: [Select]
...
[Planes]
Allies USSR 58 I_153_M62
Axis Finland 6 I_153_M62

26 G50
10 P_36A3
10 P_36A4
20 GLADIATOR2
4 TB_3_4M_17
...

I did double check that the modded "dgen.exe" was being used... but when I started the campaign with the Chaika, it either puts me as a Red team player in a TB-3 or a DB-3...  Any ideas what I am doing wrong?  Do I need to change another file?  Do I have to change the Finland41Planes.dat file as well?  How to I account for configs for both Finland and USSR in that file?

(Note I tried both "Allies USSR 58 I_153_M62" and "58 I_153_M62" as well as "Allies USSR 44 I_153P" and "44 I_153P" formats but the results were the same.)

I then tried changing the "AllPlaneDB.dat" data on the planes to:
Code: [Select]
...
HurricaneMkIV;Allies;0;England;None;None;1;FBomber;None;None;Reconplane;772;330;318;400;820;0

I_15BIS;Allies;0;USSR;None;None;1;Fighter;None;FBomber;None;350;170;150;0;0;0
...

... but also same result.  It does not seem like I have to go to "AllWeapons.dat" because all I_153* parameters are for Nation "All".

Any help would be awesome.

Unfortunately it only worked after I included a [episode]Planes.dat file, that is why I am hoping you can help... seems a lot of work and from what you said, if should be as simple as [episode].DB changes and nothing else.  So my only question so far is really how to use the same plane on both sides in a campaign, which was prominent in the Finnish scenario.

I am sending the files I modified in the DGEN directory (note that "AllPlaneDB.dat" is in the DGEN/MOD directory but I included in the zip for you to look.).

Thank you again.

greybeard,

The planes[campaign].dat file is the file that specifies which aircraft are available for the player to pick for each campaign/episode.  So for "FiF" (Finland dynamic fighter campaign) there are 4 major campaigs or episodes, which are Finland41, Leningrad42, Leningrad43 and Leningrad44).  When you start the campaign, you can choose which year you want to start.  If you start in Finland41, you will go through the whole campaign until Leningrad44 ends.  If you start in Leningrad42, you don't go through Finland41, but you still end it in Leningrad44... and so forth.

It is the file that gives you the choice of planes for that campaign to start... so for example, in Finland41 you can start with the J8A, B239, G50 or HurricaneMkIa... eventually you will be upgraded to other planes available  but that is how you start.  You could add other planes and with the later versions of IL-2 1946 and Mod packs, it is easy to add new (flyable) planes to that list without changing much else... for example, I added the Gladiator2, the MS406 and P_36A3 and A4, because they are already in the [Planes] section of Finland41.DB and they are by default Axis planes in the simulator.  In Leningrad44 you could add the MS410 because it is already in the order of battle... But I believe if you want to add something like the Morko Morane, you may have to add them to the DB file as well... not sure.

The problem I have been having is adding the dual side planes, like captured I-153 (M62 and P)... you can add them, and they are available, but even with the changes in the Finland41 (Axis Finland # plane_type), it does not seem to work... only when I create an [episode]Planes.dat it seems to work... which is what you have been saying all along... but Asura is saying that is not necessary, and I would prefer not to have to use that... so I am trying to find what I am doing wrong.

Hope that makes sense.

At you everything was made correctly, but the generator wasn't ready to flights of the player by trophy planes :) I made changes and now it is possible, but it is necessary to wait the following version. It will be important not to forget to disconnect the option "UseParkedPlanes" if campaign is based on old templates if it is included there will be mistakes in placement of the plane of the player in airfield of the opponent. Or to use new possibilities of version 2.0.2.0 for the indication of airfield of the player through the settings files.

I think you're following the correct path. The "[episode]Planes.dat" file is necessary, in my experience, and I guess there's a misunderstanding with Asura; if I recall correctly, he recommended in the past to add that file, since the sole AllPlaneDB and AllWeapons gave a poor control on a campaign.

Since you're tuned, I would make you aware of a couple of problems I'm experiencing.

First, I'm sorry to say that I was forced to stop testing of v2.0.1.2 since it gave increasing troubles as campaign was going on, presenting Windows error messages of "Access violation by DGen.exe" when I clicked on "Apply" at mission end.

Second, I've a problem with air base of Imphal Main, on Burma map: notwithstanding I set UseParkedPlanes (with required planes parked elsewhere) and "AF Off" in setting, DGen stubbornly poses my squadron there. I wonder if control on player's air base could be improved.

On the bright side, I would thank you again for the "Country" section of AllPlane.DB: I now realized how this is important, freeing from old DGen "vice" to have plane nationality hardcoded with map (for instance: Allies forced to be all Australian in New Guinea). ;)

When using UseParkedPlanes the plane of the player and the stationary plane have to coincide completely. When using [AFOFF] it is necessary to enter precisely dates and to check shutdown in DGen_mod.log. Looks approximately so?

Skip: Rakvere
...

At 2.0.2.0 I already made the exact instruction on placement of planes of the player depending on the plane and squadron. Also I added an operated transfer.

So far it looks like it is a challenge, but in all these years this is the first time I tried to edit them... it is probably easier to modify existing campaigns than to create a new one from scratch, at least at first.  I am learning a lot by reading Asura's user guide for his modded DGEN.

How to check shutdown in DGen_mod.log?

Thanks for kind reply. Regards,

P.S.: curiously, the hitch happens only when I'm coming from previous episode (Burma43), switching from Hurri2BTrop to Hurri2C. All campaigns that I try to start directly from ANY episode (Burma42, Burma43, ... BurmaD3) always start at the correct airfield (Saipam), the only one on the map where Hurri2BTrop and Hurri2C are parked. I checked that there aren't Hurri2C elsewhere on the map of BurmaD1Red.mis. The [AF_OFF] or [AFOFF] (tested both syntax) seems to have no effect at all.

For the settings file it is very important not to break a sequence of sections. If to mix sections control won't work with places. Sections can not be but the order always has to be such:

Pacific
UseParkedPlanes
UseSearchlight
[EnemyNation]
[AF_OFF]
[Distance]
[AirStart]
[DropTanksON]
[MapSeason]
[MapNight]
[MapWeather]

I think your problems are connected with order violation.

Such opportunity isn't present in game, the engine itself defines that the player was lost or was taken prisoner and doesn't give the following mission. In the generator it is possible to disconnect only the admission of missions at wound.

hmmmm, one thing of note is that DCG incorporates this feature.  Its an option when configuring a campaign, but in DCG if you die or are captured, your stats reset to zero and you basically start as a new pilot in the ongoing campaign. 

This is not possible via DGEN?

Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: WindWpn on August 11, 2014, 01:17:39 PM
In DCG, updates to the campaign progress occur at review of the event log mission to mission.  Thus, in DCG if a pilot dies or is captured and exits out of mission, DCG at that time reviews the log and records the pilot stat reset.  Once pilot enters the UI mission debrief, the player would have to click "Refly" to "refly" mission, however at which point, they could simply exit out returning to debrief to "Apply" and advance the campaign.  Upon generation of the new mission, the pilot would return to starting rank/stats. 

Note, if a user does not click "Refly" following return from a death mission end, and rather went to the main UI screen and then reloaded the career, the death mission would need to be entered and then exited to allow campaign advance via the "Apply" button.  Of course, in either format, at mission advance the pilot stats would be reset.  The key trigger for resetting stats is actually when a user exits the deadly flight and enters the debrief.

As noted, this feature is optional in DCG thus it can be enabled on/off per the players choice.  I enjoy it on as it is nice to see rank/responsibility advancement while on a clean (no death/capture) streak.  Provides incentive to remain alive/fly/fight smart to avoid returning to lower ranks and getting yelled at all the time by the squad leaders when off formation.

Now it is clear to me. Unfortunately in DGen_MOD so it won't turn out. The generator has no UI, there is no possibility of management. DGen is completely subordinated to game.

I'm noticing that often wind direction is set sideways on carrier operations (actually, it appears to be random). This makes exceedingly difficult take-off and landing. In reality, aircraft carrier are always oriented upwind for take-off and landing operations. I think Starshoy's DGen would include this feature.

Please, could you arrange your DGen this way?

The wind is only in DGen_MOD. In missions with aircraft carriers trust has to be on a meeting, but on some cards there is a wrong determination of coordinates. Send me mission with the wrong wind and the log files. I will try ??????? a mistake.

Send me mission with the wrong wind and the log files.

I think I found the difference.

Here follows one mission file from Marianas campaign played with your DGen_mod:

Code: [Select]
[WEATHER]
  WindDirection 229
  WindSpeed 10.10
  Gust 8
  Turbulence 0

Same campaign played with Starshoy's DGen gives always wind "0" (zero), as you can see in attached screenshot:

(http://s8.postimg.cc/8czglqc4l/Carrier_crosswind_1.jpg) (http://postimage.org/)

and also setting in FMB worst weather, no more than 4 m/s of wind strength can be obtained at deck level (direction looks to be always 0).
 
(http://s29.postimg.cc/tks1neznr/Carrier_crosswind_2.jpg) (http://postimage.org/)

Please, would you consider the recourse to a stratagem to keep more realistic carrier operations?

Thanks for your attention,
GB

P.S.: maybe I found also a solution. Just using your settings and limiting wind strength:

[MapWind]
Marianas1 100 0 0 0

It's a poor solution (the best would have been having realistic wind in the opposite direction of carrier travel) but I'm unable to find anything better.

Hello Asura,

Above is my latest dilemma!  :(

I've been struggling with Boelcke's MTO campaign.  At times my plane and those in front and behind explode as soon as mission loads, or else I am in a pink plane that has already crashed somewhere (the plane was a Bf-109 but now it has crashed, turned pink and has a Russian star on the fuselage!) I've re-downloaded and re-installed your Dgen Mod and associated plane files along with the campaign.  Sometimes i get through 2 missions, sometimes 5.  Boelcke says he has never has any issues with the MTO, so I am appealing to you for help.  Is it the campaign or the Mod?  Below is the latest error log:

Pink planes and explosions sure sign of the wrong arms. In your version of game there are no arms which for some plane are registered in AllWeapons.dat. As soon as this weapon appears in mission - everything is painted in pink color. :)

The generator couldn't find the Zapolar43SummerTowns.dat file. It is necessary to provetit it. It isn't related to pink planes.

Hello Iyteyr,

this errorlog is related to Boelckes Murmansk campaign!!! Have a look at the entries, it`s Zapolar43 and the Career ID is DeBOE101;

his MTO campaign is campaignsdeBoe03-07 and 104-107;

So I guess you have mixed up a lot in your dgen folder.

Another possibility is that you`ve missed to install his HSFX 7 plane data files for Asuras dgen.exe mod v1.2 which can be found here:
http://www.axis-and-allies-paintworks.com/download.php?view.856

Things like the ones you described can happen when loadouts are different.

Cheers

Marjak

I apologize - I passed. I already completely made in the instruction the section according to the settings file. Soon the translation of the text into English will begin. The new instruction will be in release of DGen_MOD 2.0.2.0 which now is in process of preparation. Also the section according to the ops files - all codes and available missions is added to instructions. Wait, please the new version. Briefly to answer your question unfortunately it won't turn out.

Arguably one of the single biggest items I've personally been waiting for.  This is badly needed.

I still have all the old notes and forum conversations from many years ago of Starshoy, Ian Boys, Nimits, and others detailing DGen codes, variables, and other functions, but it's from a very old version of DGen.  Been waiting a long time for something comprehensive for Asura's DGen.  Can't wait.  :)

Quick question.  In the ops[episode name].dat files, is there a limit to the number of variations to any single mission type?  For example, can you create more than ten variations to "oRuAttackArmor" or any other mission type?  If there is a limit, what is it?  Also, what are all the available mission types than can be put into the ops[episode name].dat for either side.

Thanks again for your work on the DGen.exe.  You newer version is working really well (though I had to drastically increase the AI's cruising speed in many aircraft, as they were crawling along way too slowly) I can't tell you how much I appreciate the added flexibility in building campaings.  The default DGen is just too finicky and restrictive.

In the generator there are no restrictions on lines of the ops files. There is no restriction on total of lines and on quantity of lines for each type of missions. In this question it is necessary to use the principle of a rationality and sufficiency. The detailed full instruction on the ops files is now translated. If that helps here in Russian http://www.mediafire.com/view/lw222wd8k5fmtli/DGen_UserManual_Ru.pdf (http://www.mediafire.com/view/lw222wd8k5fmtli/DGen_UserManual_Ru.pdf) The pictogram of "NEW" noted missions which will be available in new release 2.0.2.0, the program is ready, I wait for the translation of the instruction.

Absolutely, a good point.  One that I am acutely aware of.  Important to have room for options, but overdoing it can be just as harmful as not doing enough.  I'm currently building a Winter War campaign from scratch using the DGen Mod, (and will later move on to the whole Baltic/Leningrad theater of operations during the German-Soviet war), and it will be lengthy.  Just wanted some variability in missions, at least for the Soviet side.  The Finnish side - from a historical standpoint -  will be limited however, lol.

Thanks for the link.  Will take a look.

Thanks.

I think there's a serious issue with use of drop tanks by DGen_mod.

Here follows an example regarding Hurricane Mk.IIB (SAS pack including drop tanks). Asura's DGen_mod v2.0.1.2. DropTanksON option enabled. DGen_mod assign a mission where player's flight must go to 203 NM distance from home base and then idling, waiting for enemy transports. After fight, player's flight is supposed should also RTB.

Preparing to write


So drop tanks are there, their range is calculated, but (Lord knows why) they are not applied, since not need (???)

On the contrary, I see drop tanks are always given by DGen_mod for escort missions, even if at very short distance.

This odd logic makes really frustrating the attempt to have a "short-legged" plane like Hurricane on big Pacific maps. In addition, in case of fighter-bombers variant, DGen_mod looks unable to manage pylons who carries either drop tank or bomb, giving precedence to drop tank and sending, as a consequence, fighter-bombers to bomb with... drop tanks! :(

I heartily hope that next version 2.0.2.0 will fix these inaccuracies of DGen_mod, otherwise the unique tool to play dynamic campaigns on new maps, with new planes.

It is necessary to understand that calculation of ranges of flight and the decision on use of suspended tanks very complex algorithmic challenge.

In a case with Hurricane before line "CheckDT - DT not need, DT is switched OFF" there has to be a line "CheckDT - distantion to target - X km, Plane range - X km" by which it is possible to determine what flying range counted the generator. In general the generator at the established DropTanksON works so:
1. Checks possibility of installation of suspended tanks - if it perhaps increases the radius of search of the purposes and tanks are established as obligatory.
2. Search of the purpose is carried out and mission is defined.
3. The distance to the chosen purpose is checked - if it is suitable for flight without tanks - tanks are removed. If escort mission - tanks remain isn't dependent on distance to the purpose.

If the plane has loading options with tanks and bombs - they will get out. But if the purpose is suitable for attack only guns/machine guns perhaps installation only of suspended tanks. The choice between "only a tank" and "a tank with bombs" is carried out in a random way if both options are suitable for a performance of the mission. On attack of the ship "only tank" shouldn't get out.

Task of the author of campaigns to pick up the correct balance of missions and opportunities of the plane. The generator unfortunately has no reason. :)

"Task of the author of campaigns to pick up the correct balance of missions and opportunities of the plane."

And how? I even tried replacing all "default" with "2xDrop44" in *planes.dat and AllWeapons.dat for HurricaneMkIIb, but no juice: DGen_mod stubbornly continue to remove tanks also for missions where target is more than half the ferry range!

I think algorithm should be very simple: radius_of_action (with drop tanks if DropTanksON option is enabled) = 1/5 (20%) of ferry_range (also this latter with drop tanks if DropTanksON option is enabled). No matter what kind of mission (escort included).
About bombs or other ordnance (e.g. rockets), DGen_mod should never alter the AllWeapons.dat and *planes.dat set. I mean, for instance, since I have following set as fighter-bomber:

Allies   England    FBomber         HurricaneMkIIb       300 2500  900 2x250lb

target for a mission which requires a fB should be searched inside the radius of action without tanks (also if DropTanksON option is enabled).

Send me a complete set of the log files, I will look as the generator considers and why cleans tanks. And mission too. Now the generator considers 45% a reserve on range.

tmpRadius := Trunc((FullRange / 2) - ((FullRange / 2)/100*45));

if TF.bNaval = True then misDist := Trunc(distancec(pCV1.takeoff, TrgXY))
else misDist := Trunc(distancec(ground, TrgXY));

if misDist <= tmpRadius then
       begin
            LongRange := False;
            LongRangeType := 0;
            Blackboxln('CheckDT - DT not need, DT is switched OFF');
         end;

FullRange - flying range of the plane taking into account suspended tanks
tmpRadius - radius with tanks taking into account a reserve
misDist - distance from a start point to a purpose point

 I had a strange bug with the Dgen mod, I tried to start an 1941 Kiev campaign, but it didn't star, i just heard a "beep" sound. Then I read the Dgen mod error ini which said: "Invalid red element number: Y

tmpRadius := Trunc((FullRange / 2) - ((FullRange / 2)/100*45));

Can't understand this equation; let's suppose FullRange=1000, this would give:

tmpRadius := Trunc(500 - 500/4500)? that's to say 499,88? Where's the reserve?

I think equation should be:

tmpRadius := Trunc((FullRange / 2) - ((FullRange / 2)*45/100))
or
tmpRadius := Trunc((FullRange / 2) - ((FullRange / 2)*.45))
or even better
tmpRadius := Trunc((FullRange / 5)

Indeed, I see that your DGen compute radius of action as half of ferry range (without auxiliary tanks, according to my findings). Beyond this limit, it gives drop tanks also for non-escort mission.

Please, golubchik, fix the bug! :)

Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: Asura on November 20, 2014, 12:17:04 AM
FullRange=pRange - value from the AllPlaneDB.dat file, for HurricaneMkIIb - 1000 km
If the first type of suspended tanks is chosen the next lines and values are used:
HurricaneMkIIb;Allies;1;England;USSR;None;1;Fighter;FBomber;None;None;1000;220;318;333;606;0
HurricaneMkIIb;3500;3500;0;0;0;0;0;0;1;1;1;0;0;1;0;1;0;0;2xDrop44;All

(these lines are used in my assembly of mods, in other versions options of arms can be others therefore I officially don't prepare files for mods of versions - each user has to correct independently files of the generator for the version)

So, when using the first type of suspended tanks (2xDrop44) FullRange is recalculated.

pCurrentRange := Trunc(pRange + ((pRange * (pFuelDT[LongRangeType] * 0.72)) / pFuel0));
pCurrentRange = 1000 + ((1000 * (333 * 0,72)) / 318) = 1000 + (1000 * 239) / 318 = 1000 + 751 = 1751 km

In this formula there is a transfer of liters to kilograms (333 * 0,72) and are calculated how many kilometers it is possible to fly by on 239 kg of additional fuel if 318 kg of fuel in internal tanks are spent for 1000 km.

FullRange=pCurrentRange

Then fighting radius in meters taking into account a reserve is calculated. For fighters of 20%, for bombers of 10%.
Radius := Trunc((pCurrentRange / 2 * 1000) - ((pCurrentRange / 2 * 1000)/100*20))
Radius = (1751 / 2 * 1000) - ((1751 / 2 * 1000) / 100 * 20)) = 875500 - (875500 / 100 * 20) = 875500 - 175100 = 700400m (700km)

According to radius search of the purpose is carried out.
When the purpose is defined need of installation of suspended tanks is calculated.
tmpRadius := Trunc((FullRange / 2) - ((FullRange / 2)/100*45));
tmpRadius = (1751 / 2) - ((1751 / 2) /100 * 45) = 875 - (875 / 100 * 45) = 875 - 394 = 481km - it is fighting radius with suspended tanks and a reserve 45%

distance to the purpose - misDist = 376 km
Comparison misDist <= tmpRadius gives that in this departure suspended fuel tanks are superfluous.

By calculations everything is correct. But I understood where here a mistake - refusing tanks I don't check availability of the purpose without tanks. Sometimes it is useful to return to these calculations. :)

In the flowing, developed version I will add check and if the purpose is available without tanks with a reserve 45% of tanks won't be. Otherwise they will remain.

Title: Re: Project DGen_mod
Post by: greybeard on November 20, 2014, 01:22:11 AM
Glad you're revising your calculation, but there are a series of inaccuracies and lack of info, IMHO. Please, read carefully what follows:

1). I think your equation is risky, at least, and over-complicated. Although the division (/) may have precedence on multiplication (*), that's like going from a room to another of an apartment walking on the ledge, instead through the corridor. I would suggest to replace percentages with .45, .20, .10 and such, removing division(/).

2). Don't know where you found reserves of 10-20%; in literature I found radius of action = from 1/5 to 1/3 of ferry range, so not less than 33% of reserve.

3). The "customary" Hurricane range is 600 miles (which is btw 965 km and not 1000 km), but I think it is inaccurate; I found a more credible value here (http://www.aviation-history.com/hawker/hurrcane.html) of 740 km.

4). Hurricane range in-game is even worse; I remarked repeatedly it unable to fly more than one hour and a half. At an average speed of 300 km/h, this means 450 km. I tested in FMB Hurricane IIB with 10% fuel at 93% power and got 44.4 km (6 min and 40 sec at 400 km/h), that's to say 444 km of range with full fuel load.

Thanks for your work and your kind attention. Cheers,

Exclusively game decision - a bigger reserve will reduce a set of the available purposes and a variety of missions.

It is the main problem of this algorithm - range accuracy in game. I take data from FM though I know that simply numerical value. The structure of the generator opened - isn't present any restrictions on own corrections of data. ;)

I apologize if this has been asked before, I couldn't find anything with searches.  I've been using DGEN_mod for months now, and lately I've been getting a weird bug when completing a mission.  As far as I can tell, the only reason it happens is because I add flights to the mission after its been generated OR it may be because I change some pilot names to be non-standard.

In any case, I constantly get the following error message

"Exception EConverterError in module DGEN.exe at 000791A." is not a valid integer value.

I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix this issue?

Flight times over big Pacific maps may require use of Skip Time function. Unfortunately, this may cause player's plane crash onto the heights since DGen_mod setting of the flight altitude does not respect *Planes.dat prescriptions and AI is unable to avoid heights (at least not in Skip Time mode). Here follows an example, where, on the contrary of Minimum Altitude set in Planes.dat file:

I can confirm that RandomFlights is working in the current version.  However, it only works for European or Eastern Front campaigns.  The random flights function does not work for Pacific campaigns, even when enabled.  That's how it's been since Pacific Fighters was first released years ago...

Of which version you're speaking of? I can't find any hint about, neither in current 2.0.1.2 nor in next 2.0.2.0 User Manuals. Obviously, I mean the RandomFlights=0-5 option in the INI file, like in Starshoy's DGen.

This does not mean that current DGen_mod does not have random flights: at least in Pacific mission I see always generated random flights for both friend and foe. here follows an excerpt from latest DGen_mod.log generated during a campaign I'm playing:

I can confirm that RandomFlights is working in the current version.  However, it only works for European or Eastern Front campaigns.  The random flights function does not work for Pacific campaigns, even when enabled.  That's how it's been since Pacific Fighters was first released years ago...


Really? I played Boelcke's west front campaigns and I never saw other flights even though I had set it at 5.

Of which version you're speaking of? I can't find any hint about, neither in current 2.0.1.2 nor in next 2.0.2.0 User Manuals. Obviously, I mean the RandomFlights=0-5 option in the INI file, like in Starshoy's DGen.

The current version, which is 2.0.1.2.

I still use IL-2 almost daily, both in building experimental missions and campaigns, as well as flying campaigns.  Using both Starshoy's DGen and Asura's DGen Mod, Eastern Front missions spawn random flights on most missions with RandomFlights set to 5.    Just because it's not in the manual doesn't mean it doesn't happen.  Sometimes it's just a single recon, while other times there are up to two or three additional strike flights.  Simple task to confirm in comparing the ops.dat line called for in the log file, and looking further down to see the additional random flights to be generated, if any.  Alternatively, simply looking up the generated mission in the full mission builder gives immediate confirmation of the extra flights generated.

However, with RandomFlights set to 5, I have never seen random flights generated on any Pacific generated missions in Campaigns, and this has been the case for me since Pacific Fighters was first released.  When checking the log file and mission builder, I've only ever seen the exact composition called for from the ops.dat mission line.  Aircraft density settings don't count as it only alters the ops.dat mission line composition, and it's function is not to create random flights.

I can't speak for Western European scenarios, as I very rarely fly those.  Use latest DT stock v4.12.

EDIT:  I forgot to mention:  If Aircraft Density is set high, that lowers the chance that random flights will be generated, even if it's set to 5.  Likewise, if the ops.dat mission lines generate highly populated missions (i.e. 12B 12B 6F), then the chance of random flights being generated is significantly reduced, if not eliminated altogether.  Random FLights seems to work best when ops.dat mission lines are of a relatively small aircraft composition, and Aircraft Density is set to Normal or Low, all of which leaves more room for random flights to be generated.  As I understand it, currently Starshoy's and Asura's DGens allow only up to a maximum of 32 aircraft generated per side.  The more that "budget" is filled, the less chance of random flights, even if there is still room to generate them.  It would be interesting if Asura is working on doubling that number :), but I'm sure that depends on how well the "moving parts" inside the .exe will even allow that to ever happen...

Good point!

I don't know why this happens to you. If you give a glance to log file excerpt I posted earlier, you can see how they are actually generated: since Starshoy's DGen, on the contrary of European campaigns, random flights in PTO are generated by default (no matter what RandomFlights is set). Asura's DGen just inherited this feature.

Interesting. I had figured that, now you're giving me confirmation.

Flight times over big Pacific maps may require use of Skip Time function. Unfortunately, this may cause player's plane crash onto the heights since DGen_mod setting of the flight altitude does not respect *Planes.dat prescriptions and AI is unable to avoid heights (at least not in Skip Time mode). Here follows an example, where, on the contrary of Minimum Altitude set in Planes.dat file:

Please, would be possible to have DGen_mod strictly respecting prescribed minimum altitude in Planes.dat?

Height was always used from the local Planes.dat files. I corrected an element of chance - earlier it could reduce height, will work only for increase now.

There is no sense to argue about Random planes - I all the same will remake it and I will describe in the instruction. :) It will be really interesting and necessary groups of planes (for example group of cover at take off and landing, or the group meeting bombers from flight, also there will be groups the attacking purposes - for mass character).

Hi there Asura, i just want to let you know that I really love and admire what you are doing to/for DGen. II can't wait for the new version to come out: how is the manual translation coming along?  ;)

On a separate note: please, please make regular backups!
Since you are more or less, if not completely, doing this just by yourself, I just would like to be assured that a hard disk crash cannot wipe out the progress you have made so far.
It happened before.

Work on the translation is a little tightened, I think if it isn't ready next week I will lay out new version 8-9 of December. I will lay out the instruction with the translation separately on readiness.

There are no reasons for concern - initial codes of the generator are stored in four copies. :)

I assume to expand considerably in the following versions the instruction on the generator. It will be a lot of information in Russian. Maybe there is someone who will be able to help with the translations?

Title: Question regarding Asura's DGEN mod
Post by: Ta183Huckebein on December 04, 2014, 08:57:16 AM
Hi guys.

I am just realizing the awesome that is Asura's DGen mod, and I would like some help:

How do you "add" modplanes to the mod so that you can add them to Dynamic Campaigns?

Thanks in advance!

Ta183Huckebein

P.S: On a unrelated issue, how much of a "copy" do modact games have to be to do multiplayer? I am referring to Modact with mods like the Me-262 Ultimate mod and/or modplanes installed. Do they have to have air.inis that are exactly the same, or does having the same files active suffice?

Non-stock planes are added like usual: drop folder with Java classfiles into your Mod (or #SAS, or whatever is called) folder and add related line to your air.ini file. If you mean adding them to a campaign, be aware that Asura's DGen is really required only if you want new plane as player's one. Any modded environment allows to have AI non-stock planes, but only Asura make them flyable for player. You may edit the PlanesXXX.dat file of the campaign, replacing existing player's plane with the new one (the old Starshoy's DGen knows flyables only up to version 4.08m, IIRC - so also flyables added later by TD can't be picked in a stock DGen campaign). See also Asura's Manual at paragraph "to add a new airplane to a campaign".

Asura,

I'm sorry to bother you with this, but I have a perplexing question.

I'm in the process of building a Finn-Russo Winter War campaign.  On the Leningrad map, all of the towns and villages in the Karelian Isthmus that changed hands during the conflict have two names, a Finnish name and a Russian name.  In regards to writing the schedule in the *.DB file, how does one go about knowing which name to use in the *.DB files?

>  Is it necessary to use both names in the *.DB schedule?  For example, if a location that is originally Finnish is scheduled to be taken by the Russian side, do I use the Russian name of that location in the *.DB file?  Likewise, is the reverse true for locations that, hypothetically, are taken by the Finns (using the Finn name of the same location)?

Or...

>  Does DGen recognize only one version of a location's name, no matter which side holds it?  If so, which one?

Or...

>  Will DGen automatically apply the appropriate nationality name according to who holds it, move the front-line appropriately, and otherwise function normally (not create an error), regardless if either the Finnish or Russian name is written for any of the locations in the schedule?


I did not foresee this complication.  The situation is confusing.  I've already researched and hand-written the schedule in preparation of writing the *.DB files, only to run into this snag.  Some help in this matter would be very, very much appreciated!

Thanks!

Sorry for the intrusion, I fear Asura is currently engaged elsewhere, so I try to help.

>  Does DGen recognize only one version of a location's name, no matter which side holds it?  If so, which one?

In fact it is so.

Name recognized by DGen_mod is that listed into the file [map_name]Towns.dat, that in your instance should be LeningradTowns.dat, stored inside the folder DGen\MOD\, which content is:

Yeah, I was afraid you might say that...

Looked at that file already, but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask anyway, by the long chance that I wouldn't have to actually look up each name individually and compare which one is used.

Oh, well...

Thanks!   :)

Huckebein, I merged you request here into the original thread.
Its confusing when having a thread and some requests somewhere else.
Next time stay in the origin thread with your questions.
Please.

Looks like an overhaul of the ops*.dat files are in order.  Thank goodness for that handy "Replace" tool in Notepad 2.  That's going to get a lot of use...   :D

Judging by what was seen in the FMB after mission generation with v2.0.2.0, it looks as though bomber formations will no longer converge onto a single waypoint along their path and smack each other out of existence.  Can't tell you how much that is appreciated, especially with forming large groups of bombers.  Thank you.

While I'm here, there's an issue I was wondering if anyone can help me with the Winter War campaign I've been working on.

I've gotten to the point where I can start testing the campaign, as all the essential things are done.  All essential files are present.  All known errors have been logged and corrected.  All spellings have been checked and corrected.  Etc...

So far, the campaign consists of Finnish fighters, and Russian fighters, jabos, and bombers.  The campaign is only in a state fit for testing, is incomplete, the ops*.dat isn't yet optimized for players playing bombers, but anyway...

When selecting and starting any of the campaigns for either the Russians or Finnish, the game takes a moment to load everything, then crashes.  Then, at this point, I must first [alt/del] out of the game, then [alt/tab] to display and close a Windows error window to get any functionality back to the system.  The system is locked-up and unresponsive until I do these things.  After having closed the error window, functionality returns, but the campaign doesn't generate (blank briefing screen in-game).  Deleting the aborted campaign is the only option.

This is the error window that appears:

(http://i1369.photobucket.com/albums/ag202/treetop193/DGen_Error_zps7f1bf9b4.jpg)



No DGen Error Log has ever generated every time this issue occurred.

Without fail, the log file always stops at the last line shown in the log file below:

This issue has been occurring with the previous v2.0.1.2 DGen, and the new v2.0.2.0 that was just released.  It is a persistent error, the campaign never generates.

I even tried opening the DGen.exe with CFF Explorer and enabling it to use more than 2GB, but the problem still persists.

I'm totally stumped as I have no idea what could be causing this.

Thanks.

In the interim I am updating a USAAF West Front campaign based on Monty's DGen work and Asura's latest DGen.exe.

I get blowing up planes for certain campaign segments.  The issue appears to be related to a/c starting at the wrong end of the runway.  Anyone know what causes these issues?  The Ops files?  Can they be switched out?

The issue appears to be related to a/c starting at the wrong end of the runway.

If so, you may try reversing order of runway coordinates. Edit in Notepad the MapAF.dat(*), where Map is name of map where's the airfield and detect row with airfield name, like "Sunset" in following example:

3821.03;9469.12;4998.27;10456.93;Sunset

exchange red coordinates with green ones.

(*): inside your Dgen\MOD folder

The issue appears to be related to a/c starting at the wrong end of the runway.

If so, you may try reversing order of runway coordinates. Edit in Notepad the MapAF.dat(*), where Map is name of map where's the airfield and detect row with airfield name, like "Sunset" in following example:

3821.03;9469.12;4998.27;10456.93;Sunset

TY - will try that!

The issue was not the AF coordinates - that was just a symptom.

It has to do w/ the [Aces] section.  When I remove it from the problem segments NO boom.

What is strange is that the syntax is correct in those sections and the segments that go boom are almost identical to the ones that don't.  Just weird.  I have a few more tests to run and if I can't get them to work then I'll just delete them and fly.

Try to post here your  [Aces] section, highlighting faulty "segments" (but what do you mean, exactly, by "segments"?).

Try to post here your  [Aces] section, highlighting faulty "segments" (but what do you mean, exactly, by "segments"?).

"Segments" is not the best description then.  I am referring to the "episode" files of a campaign.  So the one I am modding is Monty's Western Front Fighter campaign and two files that have [Aces] sections that go boom are:
G44
G45

...and two w/ [Aces] sections that don't cause issues are:
DDay
DDay2

I'll post the relevant sections tomorrow when I am on my gaming box.

Sorry, I can't help. :(

Does not make sense for me; I don't see errors, and, anyway, in my experience when there's an error DGen refuses to build mission, logging an error message, like (e.g.): "can't find P_51B10".

About explosions, Asura's himself warns in his Manual: "IMPORTANT! If a mistyped or wrong payload specified then this may cause strange behavior when starting a mission – airplane explosions at runways, appearing airplanes with bent propellers, texture artifacts etc.". Is it possible that an ace in "bad one" requires some special aircraft or payload?

Sure thing.

- I am trying to make them work w/ Asura's DGen version.
- The "updates" consist of historically accurate (or as close as I can get) plane sets and skins for the USAAF 4th, 56th and 354th FGs

I hope that's OK as I am a fan of your work.

there is already a version for Asuras mod and 4.12 existing - if you are working with an older version of the campaign for 4.11 or 4.10 forget it

i didn´t know that my westfront campaign is included in Monty´s pack, that´s realy interesting because i didn´t give him my persmission and told him to remove my files from this silly pack

Detlef, at the time we were in constant contact and even spoke on Skype quite regularly.  So don't misrepresent events please and ease up with your attitude, wading in with a sledgehammer. 

If you don't wish to belong to our community that is your choice; but you know damned well we all benefit from working as a team here and all efforts are encouraged. 

I never pointed out at the time that many of your DGen missions were based on scenery templates designed and built by me for previous campaigns.  They probably still contain my scenery!  We had also worked on new campaigns skinning and building missions together. 

The point is that none of these spurious claims really hold any water.  Its a game, we do it for free, we come here to be amongst friends and help one another. 

The 'silly packs' you mentioned were immediately purged of your offending files UPON REQUEST TWO YEARS AGO.  The links have also been down for some time because this is old obsolete work as far as I am concerned.

But if you must insist on a proprietorial stance please frame your words politely.  Bear in mind that SAS is a two-way street, how many people have helped you in the past?  How many still do? 

No man is an island my friend - Lighten up for heaven's sake...

Boelcke, your attitude brought you up on our radar screens before.
If you didn't understand yet, let me explain it again to you:
The SAS is a modding community where everything is shared among each other for free without restrictions.
If you have issues with this and think it'd be clever to threaten people for doing something which is the heart of this board, then... do it elsewhere.
Consider this your first warning...

i didn´t give him my persmission and told him to remove my files from this silly pack
...and this your second.
Don't talk like that to acknowledged modders of the SAS.
