Title: "Years of Triumph" - 103 mission Luftwaffe campaign finally OUT!
Post by: SAS~Poltava on December 24, 2013, 02:00:24 AM
It has been more than a year since I started working on this Luftwaffe mega-campaign, but now it is finished, with more Bf 109 missions than you can shake a stick at!  :)

(http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t286/Poltava/YOTprimelogo_zps5a4551fc.jpg) (http://s163.photobucket.com/user/Poltava/media/YOTprimelogo_zps5a4551fc.jpg.html)

“Years of Triumph” is a static campaign, 103 missions long, yes 103 missions, where the player flies as a Luftwaffe fighter pilot during the years of 1937-1941, using most of the early variants of the famous Messerschmitt Bf 109, from the B2 to the F4. The player will participate in the following sub-campaigns:

•   Spanish Civil War 1937
•   Invasion of Poland 1939
•   North Sea Battles 1939
•   Phoney War 1939-40
•   Invasion of Holland May 1940
•   Battle for France May-June 1940
•   Battle of Britain July-October 1940
•   Battle over Malta 1941
•   Campaign against Yugoslavia April 1941
•   North African Battles Summer of 1941
•   Invasion of the Sovit Union 1941 NEW!

Download the campaign here: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=1869

Campaign has now been updated to version 2.0: This the the last and ultimate version. Introduced many new aircraft, and new ground objects (all that can be found in the Years of Triumph Mod Pack). Also added no less than 23 additional missions, taking the campaign into the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941. This is meant to be the ultimate version of this campaign!

And now there is also a "Years of Triumph Mod Pack", a JSGME-activated Mod Pack with just the extra four aircraft and the extra map you need to play this campaign. You can download it here: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=2076

(http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t286/Poltava/yot_banner_zpslzwu1xoo.jpg) (http://s163.photobucket.com/user/Poltava/media/yot_banner_zpslzwu1xoo.jpg.html)

The unit you follow is a sort of composite of several German Luftwaffe units. Most missions are based on history. But rather than following the exact doings of a single Geschwader I have tried to give the player a sense of how it could be like to be a Bf 109 pilot during these years. Only historical aircraft and historical maps are used. It follows the actual historical course of the battles portrayed. Note that a couple of the aerial combats are pretty one-sided, in German favour, but this is the early war period, right? I have also tried to follow the historical small unit compositions, so that most Luftwaffe units uses formations of 4 aircraft, while the British and French most of the time uses formations of 3 aircraft. But there are of course variations, as in real life, when local conditions and availability of aircraft more than textbook tactics dictated what appeared over the battlefield.

"Years of Triumph" has been built with and for DBW 1.71, but uses a lot of additional Mods. You will get them all in one fell swoop if you also download and install my simple, jsgme-activated "Years of Triumph" Mod Pack, that can be found here:

http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=2076

With the campaign comes 77 skins, made by the following skinners: A1_Phoenix, Archie, Canon_UK, Emel, Graf, Hayate, Imme, Jbunelle, Kristorf, Laperemagloire, Laufer, Macwan, Mission_Bug, Monguse, Murdoc, Owl, Patrulla Azul, PGP, RDDR, Revolver, Shooter, Sparty, Tchaika and of course VP_media. Many, many thanks for your great work! (You find some of the best skinners in the world in this list!)

"Years of Triumph" originally started as an overhaul of some of my old Bf109 campaigns when it struck me: why not add some other campaigns, not yet covered, and join them all together to form a single REALLY big campaign of all those individual ones? This is the result. I've had great support from the playtesters CMW, Crazy G, Gerson and Lanius - but any remaining errors are my responsibility, not theirs!  8) Thanks to all who have been involved, directly or indirectly, not least all Modders, who give so much of their talent and time to this great game of ours!

Thanks for looking!  :)

Hello Poltava!

let me be the first to congratulate you on that great campaign! It looks like it will provide a host of fun, just like the other campaigns you have given to us :)
I guess that will be the one to fly after some excursions into China thanks to your recent SCW updates :)

so, Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, enjoy the holidays!

cheers and best wishes

Hi Poltava.
 Any chance in the near future for HSFX 6.017 or HSFX 7.01 version ?.

It should work in HSFX, provided you have the Mods in the list. Have a go at it, and report back!

Hi Poltava,
 I think it would be better to wait if you come out with the HSFX version. I'm having problems to download the first french plane and it is too confusing the all.ini changes , I don't want to screw up the game.
Hopefully you will have am HSFX vesrion.
Keep the good work, I like your Campaigns.

Nice work Poltava! Flying those Bf109bs in Spain was quite the shock - 2x 7.6mm and that's it?? lol

Oddly I add turn off my special effects because the game was crashing to disk with it on. Bit wierd since I've run missions with 24 planes a side, bombers, flak and warships with no problems.

Hmm, it probably means that it means it won't work on HSFX. Sounds like a typical clash of mods, I'm afraid...  :-\

Post by: spartan18a on December 26, 2013, 04:53:08 PM
The problem with DBW is that it got stuck in the 4.10 version and the HSFX is at the present day version. It's just an opinion. But that's the reason why I use the HSFX for most of my flying. :) this makes a big difference. The 4.10 is so obsolete right now. Isn't it?
Title: Re: "Years of Triumph" - 80 mission Luftwaffe campaign finally OUT!
Post by: SAS~Poltava on December 27, 2013, 02:06:35 AM
The 4.10 is so obsolete right now. Isn't it?

No. I don't agree. HSFX is great. (And so is 4.12.2.) But I appreciate the much bigger number of aircraft and maps in DBW. That makes DBW much more fun to build campaigns for. The versatility is quite simply that much bigger. DBW is also aimed on off-liners (like me) while HSFX caters primarily for on-liners - and does an excellent job at that.

And I also think you are wrong to assume that DBW is "stuck" at 4.10. See here: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,38549.msg428228/boardseen.html#new

But we are moving off-topic here...
Title: Re: "Years of Triumph" - 80 mission Luftwaffe campaign finally OUT!
Post by: spartan18a on December 27, 2013, 07:28:28 AM
I am glad to hear that DBW is moving along. I used to have it until it didn't keep up with the official patches. I even tried my own campaign with DBW: Training to get your wings: Luftwaffe.  http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=1463

I got maps of Bayern, etc. hehe but please don't say anything. You are the reference in campaign building and mine was a bone to big for me to chew ...

Let's see what happens next. Blending DBW and HSFX sound awesome.

Hi Poltava,
               love the campaign.  It's very absorbing and enjoyable.  On Mission France-6 my plane blows up at start of mission.  Any ideas what I could be doing wrong?  Everything is perfect up to this point.

Kind regards

Steve

Post by: SAS~Poltava on December 28, 2013, 01:27:57 AM
No, I don't. Blowing up often means a clash a mods. An old trick that might work: open the mission in FMB, then just save it (without making any changes). Then have another go.

Post by: Griffon_301 on December 28, 2013, 01:17:48 PM
for users of newTFM pay attention - you will need to manually add the IK-3 :)
oh, and I also added the MB-152 from the French Singles here - mine looked like the KI-100 and just to make sure, I got myself the right Bloch as well :)
Title: Re: "Years of Triumph" - 80 mission Luftwaffe campaign finally OUT!
Post by: SAS~Poltava on December 28, 2013, 01:32:26 PM
Ouch, I goofed up on that one. Aimed to have a "NTFM-safe" install. Missing the IK-3 isn't the end of the world. But it will make some missions over Yugoslavia in 1941 a bit boring...

Will fix that when I do the 1.1 update.

Thanks for the heads-up!
Title: Re: "Years of Triumph" - 80 mission Luftwaffe campaign finally OUT!
Post by: Griffon_301 on December 28, 2013, 04:04:38 PM
ah that is not that big of a problem as the IK3 is easy to add :)

Thanks Poltava - that fixed it.  Never knew that one so I definitely learned something new today.

I don't know the exact mechanism behind this, but the FMB does some automatic cleaning up of the .mis code.
Title: Re: "Years of Triumph" - 80 mission Luftwaffe campaign finally OUT!
Post by: SAS~vampire_pilot on December 29, 2013, 04:41:29 AM
This is awesome!:)

But I experience a few downsides, being forced to install the additional stuff is putting strain on my system. I experienced some random memory errors.
Also, during Spain segments planes often crash into mountains before on target even.
They could need few hundred meters additional altitude in that terrain maybe. AI is stupid.
Title: Re: "Years of Triumph" - 80 mission Luftwaffe campaign finally OUT!
Post by: SAS~Poltava on December 29, 2013, 07:42:23 AM
Vampire,

The random memory errors can often be fixed by assigning more memory in the Selector.

But I will try and give the less talented AI pilots some extra meters in version 1.1!  :)

Post by: SAS~Poltava on December 30, 2013, 02:36:56 PM
Ouch, not good. (And the CR.42 has Luftwaffe markings...) Some of the airfields on this map are a bit cramped and have problems with the taxi-points, but I should have seen it. Will correct in version 1.1.

But the quick work-around is of course to land and taxi manually, and then quit the mission, moving on.

Hey Poltava,

Took a bit of work to make it to get it up and running; had a bit of trouble with the Wellington but solved it by loading up the one from TFM-5.

Three missions in and everything still works. Your SCW missions are nicely paced; I really like the popguns on the 109's, they just need a bit more ammo  ;).

Well done!

Dear friends, I have started this campaign which is very very fun. As suggested I tried to insert also IK-3 but I have alwais a crasch at 70%. I put the folder IK-3_411_for410_v1.01 in my #DBW folder, I have TFM, then added the proper lines in AIR.INI, PLANE_RU.PROPERTIES and WEAPONS_RU.PROPERTIES. As it is evident I did some mistake. Could you please help me? Thanks

I'm afraid you must take this to the proper part of the Forum. This is not a problem with the camapign, but a problem with a install. You could also try and play it without the IK-3. a couple of missions over Yugoslavia will be a bit boring, but you can probably live with that...  ;)

Hi, I'm using the New-TFM and the plane missing that i've found so far are the Supermarine Walrus and the IK3.

Also in the second fighter hunt over the channel there are 2 white schwarms, its kinda confusing...unless you are the leader :)

My memories of Spain.....clouds, clouds, clouds! oh...and wind, a lot of!
With that fire power and those turbulences it was mission impossible getting a kill. (Yes, im a n00b)

It's a great campaign, thx for your awesome work!

I had so much fun, it was a great campaign! 
There you go, my final results :)

(http://i.imgur.com/Gwa3Hgv.jpg)

Not bad, considering i'm still learning :P

Anyway i could not fly 2 missions because the "campaign manager" decided my rank was not enough.
One was the second "close bomber escort" over Britain, the other was the first mission with droptanks in Sicily.

Cheers

Dikkjo - that's impressive!  ;)

Do you have any more details of those two missions that were causing you problems? I hope to have a new, updated version out eventually. (Without the IK-3...)

Still, it's a off-line campaign, and for that I think DBW is the best  ;)

Exploding planes on the runway often means that you have MODs that clash. Have you installed any new mods recently?  :-\

I haven't played this campaign yet, but I've had a similar problem in DBW with the Gomhouria, and another plane.
I removed them and the problem disappeared.

Hi

This is my very first IL-2 campaign ever and I enjoy it very much. A perfect campaign to start with IMHO.

Thank you very much Poltava!

Everything as worked perfectly until now (DBW+New TFM) but in the mission France1940-4 I have the same problem with my plane exploding right away when starting the mission.
I'll test to open the mission in FMB and just save it and see if that helps.

Cheers

"Years of Triumph" have now been updated to version 1.1. See here: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=1869

I have tried to fix and/or amend things that people here has pointed out to me:

•   Changed altitude and weather in several Spanish Civil War missions
•   Fixed errors in some France 1940 mission set-up (to hopefully eliminate all risk of exploding aircraft on the runway...)
•   Removed the IK-3 from the Yugoslavia 1941 missions, plus fixed some badly placed static objects on the home airfield
•   Fixed some typos

Thanks for the feed-back guys! Fette beute!  :)

That was perfect timing!

I opened and saved the France1940-4 mission in FMB and that worked well, but I had the same problem in France1940-10 but when I tried to open it in FMB I had "Stand by loading mission" forever.

I saw that France1940-10 was updated in 1.1 so I hope that problem is fixed now.

This is a very mysterious behaviour. As they of course ran fine on my rig. But I guess that this can happen with a very different install, other Mods etc. But the "Open-And-Save-In_FMB"-trick will, as showed above, fix it.

Post by: vonOben on April 10, 2014, 04:39:24 AM
Hi Poltava

I don't know how different my install is. Basically it's DBW + NTFM with a few mods added:

DBW + New TFM 1-37 (including FBDSM and Tiger's sounds) and these additional mods:

DBW_1.71_New 412 FX
DBW_512_Selector
DBW_CirXs_POVMoD
DBW_Ecran Wide for 4.101
6DOF_Mouse
FOVMod
PALMiniMapV2.4
TreeTextures_v3 

YoT v.1.1 feedback:
BoB1940-10: The plane floating in the air at mission start and exploding.
The FMB trick solved the problem as usual.

YoT v.1.1

In BOB-13B I was assigned to fly a Do-17z, is that intended?

In BOB-13C my computer had big difficulties running the mission. I tried lower these settings as follows:
TexMipFilter=2
HardwareShaders=0
Specular=1
SpecularLight=1
VisibilityDistance=2
Forest=0
LandGeom=2
Water=0

But I only got framerate:1 when the fighting started...

What settings should I turn down when there is high air activity in a mission?

I've also encountered some strange phenomens during the campaign which is not related to the campaign itself:.

Sometimes when I start a mission the sky looks like this and it goes away after a while:

(http://vonoben.free.fr/Temp/YOT-Psycodelic_sky.jpg)

Sometimes when in external view my plane look like this. It's only the player plane - never other planes:

Post by: vpmedia on May 07, 2014, 11:56:22 PM
if you got troubles with mods/missions then post your logfile

planes exploding on mission start is usually a wrong loadout option in the mission but if you press shift+tab then you can read which plane/loadout is doing this

its also a good idea to have the instant logfile output mod installed especially when you experience ctd's because in that case the last log message is often lost

the colorful sky is a directx issue imho, try opengl
if youre in opengl dont turn off the hardware shaders

the disappearing 109 cockpit is a DBW bug, its pretty random and I cant remember a fix
Title: Re: "Years of Triumph" - 80 mission Luftwaffe campaign finally OUT!
Post by: SAS~Poltava on May 12, 2014, 04:04:38 PM
I'm sorry I can't spend as much time as I wish I could on IL-2 right now, but I am working on a complete overhaul of the Battle of Britain segment, that will hopefully take care of this VERY annoying bug, that some people has fallen victim to, with their aircraft exploding on start on the runway...  :'(

Mind you, the campaign seems to work without snags for most people. The reason why some encounter this can be one of the following three (or a combination): Firstly a clash of installed mods, secondly a load-out problem, and thirdly a map bug. Cannons Beta Channel is pretty old, has its share of bugs and can be tricky to use. For instance: if you use the damage paint brush on the map, the front line markers will disappear. And if they are gone you will have the phenomenon of the mission saving forever in FMB. If you want to use the front line markers and avoid the saving for ever, you must lose all destruction on the map.

Anyway: as mentioned above a way to fix this is to load the mission in question in FMB, save it, just save it, no changes needed, then have a go. But this will hopefully not be needed with the forthcoming version 1.2, where the entire BoB-segment has been overhauled.

Sorry about this  :-\

EDIT: Version 1.2 now up. See post 1.

Thanks for the update Poltava!

I've finished the campaign now and I enjoyed it very much!
Plausible storyline, nice variety in aircraft and maps and mission types.
I wouldn't mind some more missions in every segment though!

Thanks for making it and improving it!

I couldn't run two BoB missions, as reported previously (v1.1). One because of low frame rate and one because I couldn't re-save it in FMB.

Have you made any campaign that would be a logical continuation from this one, preferebly on the eastern front?

The missing briefings is puzzling, but could you please check if you have briefings in other modded campaigns? Regarding the awards: nothing in a mission can make you lose them AFAIK.

slashed these out in campaign.ini and went on.The one that really puzzles me is Bob mis 19, the first Jabo sortie with the E4/B. In briefing screen I'm informed that my rank of Oberst would not be enough to fly etc. and instead players aircraft then is Ju 88 ! ???
This and Bob 19b could also not be loaded properly into FMB .Anyone got a solution ?

Title: Re: "Years of Triumph" - 80 mission Luftwaffe campaign finally OUT!
Post by: SAS~Poltava on December 15, 2014, 04:15:59 PM
Just a small heads-up: I am working on a revision, hunting and searching for bugs in those missions that people have reported having problems with. I think I have a little better understanding of what can be the matter now. Plus I will also add some new missions.

Also I am putting together a simple Mod Pack with all the Mods you need for this campaign, all in one simple download, with a simple one-click JSGME-installation - that can't mess up your game. And besides making the install of all needed Mods easy, it should hopefully also eliminate ALL risks of clashing mods giving strange effects.

Stay tuned!  :)

Hello, Poltava.

I'm having issues with your campaign. The starting cutscene only shows an armored car floating in midair with the camera switching angles. Similar to 71st_AH_Lucky, I have no mission briefing. Clicking play spawns me underground with no other planes or objects in the game. I have installed all required planes and maps and I'm using DBW 1.71 with TFM.

I have removed three aircraft types (FK.51, Walrus & Caudron) and let the Potez 540 take the place of the MB.152, in order to make the campaign easier available to more people. (The Walrus also obviously caused crashes for some. Plus that I hope with this reduction pave the way for eventually making a version fit for SAS Modact 5.3 and/or HSFX 7.) Some small but for some players crucial changes has also been made to several missions in the Battle for France and Battle of Britain segments.

As a last resort for those that experience the "exploding-aircraft-on-takeoff"-bug, I've put together a small, JSGME-activated "Years of Triumph Mod Pack", that gives you all the additional material you need, and is to be used on top a clean DBW 1.71 install, to guarantee a game without any risk of clashing Mods.

Enjoy  :)

The 1.5 update didn't fix the bugs I listed (I don't think it was meant to, anyway  ;))

I removed Mission Pro Combo Mod and the briefing showed up. However, pressing Arming did nothing and the mission was still bugged like I said before.
The starting cutscene was still the same, too.

Ok, this must be a case of clashing mods. You have something installed that cause this here. Now try the last resort: download the "Years of Triumph Mod Pack", and activate it as per instructions in the D/L, over a clean, vanilla install of DBW 1.71. That ought to do it.

Don't worry! Go to the folder: Missions/ Campaign/ DE/ YOT and rename all the files of properties. E.g.

"scw-1_ru", change to "scw-1". That's all!

Hi Poltava! It seems interesting campaign!) Is it compatible with TFM-412?
Title: Re: "Years of Triumph" - 80 mission Luftwaffe campaign finally OUT!
Post by: SAS~Poltava on May 20, 2015, 02:56:17 PM
Yes, I believe so, IF you have all the aircraft used and rename all the files of properties. E.g. "scw-1_ru", change to "scw-1".

See above!

If you are trying to play the campaign using the special "Years of Triumph" Mod Pack, it is essential that you follow the install instructions EXACTLY, i.e. it goes over a clean, vanilla install of DBW 1.71. That will work for sure. Any other combination comes without any guarantees.

Ehm, even if I may sound rude, but did you read the requirements for the campaign CrewMember?
it seems you did not because it clearly states DBW 1.71 plus the mod pack from Peter; now if you take the time and read about DBW 1.71 you would see that this goes over a 4.10 install, NOT a 4.12;

some missions may work in TFM 4.12 but some will not as TFM 4.12 is missing some aircraft and as we found out during the conversion process of other of Peter´s great campaigns also some objects and ships have been renamed sometime in between DBW and TFM/4.12 leading to mission load errors....

maybe some day this great campaign will be fully CUP/TFM 4.12 compatible, but for now, it is either DBW 1.71 plus dedicated modpack or no YoT campaign under 4.12....

When I get around to it I will have a go at making this campaign compatible for modded 4.12. But that will take a LOT of work - 80 missions... - and I have a number of other old campaigns that I want to convert first. And at the moment not too much time, due to RL commitments...

But I haven't given up on the 4.12 dream!  :)

I have made the last, the ultimate, THE FINAL update to this campaign! I have made yet another overhaul, expanding it into the early phases of the German invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941. It has been expanded from 80 to 103 missions!

Download it here: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=1869

See it as a show-case for many of the very best Mods that can be added to DBW 1.71/IL-2 4.10! (Some are not available in the 4.12 Mod Packs) And see it also as my farewell to the 4.10 system. All my new campaigns are built for the 4.12 version of the game.

I have received some questions about updating "Years of Triumph" to 4.12, and I'm sorry to say: it will not happen. Sorry. There is simply TOO MUCH work involved...  :-|

Just as a reminder: this is a campaign built for 4.10, and just 4.10. It requires DBW 1.71 plus my own simple jsgme-activated "Years of Triumph" Mod Pack, that can be found here: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=2076

To all of you that have downloaded this campaign since it was first posted (an amazing 2700+ D/L's) I just want to say: many thanks! But a special THANK YOU to all the modders and skinners that made this campaign possible.

All the best  :)

posting a log might help

Post by: darky1958 on September 22, 2017, 07:32:48 AM
I had the same problem.
The solution was the change the position of the plane on the map (FMB).
I didn´t find the a correct loadout for the last missions of the campagne.
Good luck ! :P

Thank you for the beautiful campaign. I play it again with BAT. For the Spanish Civil War i used TGA. With a few little modifications of the mis-files (e.g. chief vehicles, map-names, HE51c in place of He45 and so on) you play all missions with WAW.

I guess it's time to make my first post here...

So, is it possible to play this campaign with BAT mod? Do I have to change anything in the files, to make it work? Or I don't have to do anything, just drop the files to the right folders, and play? Or maybe it won't work, since it was made for DBW?

Sincerely,
Graf_Kacper

@Graf_Kacper,
I have this campaing in progress in BAT and I have the same problems like @buckdanny. Now, I am in the middle (circa 60 mission - Malta). I had problems with few mission in Poland, Sitzkrieg and Blitzkrieg. Sometimes planes are replaced by PA18 (if the type change). But if you use FMB, you can fix it easily (but I can not find the bug in the second or third mission in Holland).
