Post by: CharlieChap on February 17, 2014, 03:55:38 AM
7.0.2 patch for 4.12.2. Client & Server

For hsfx v7.0.

Update il2fb to 4.12.2.

Download the Auto_updater & Install it.

http://www.242sqn.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3309 (http://www.242sqn.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3309)

Run the Auto_Updater you will get the 7.0.2 patch (listed size 97.46mb's) but if you downloaded the earlier 7.0.1 update, you should have a bit of this already so its a little quicker. 7.0.2 is  inclusive and includes 7.0.1 content.

HSFX 7.0.2 Update Information.

-------------------------------------------------

Mod_Trigger
by LAL_Catsy.
english translation by C6_Armand.

(Look in HSFX V7 Tools & Read me's and see Triggers_Eng_v1.0.pdf for full explanation by Catsy.)


Three kinds of triggers have been introduced in the game. When the activation conditions are gathered :
1 –the “Apparition” Trigger allows activation of one to four planes that will follow a flight plan predefined by the mission designer;
2 –the “Takeoff” Trigger allows one to four planes to spawn that will take off from an airfield chosen by the mission designer;
3 –The “Apparition Related to Altitude” Trigger uses the same principle as the “Apparition” Trigger, along with the possibility to insert a variation of altitude (positive or negative) compared to the Trigger-activating plane altitude.

Catsy explains in the manual, when using an apparition trigger, put a similar type AI aircraft in the corner of the map, this will remove lag when aircraft spawning.


--------------------------------------------------


Channel Circus DRK Summer & Winter maps:-

by 1/JG2_Assi & LAL_Catsy

Expanded versions of the Normandy map added because it is used by some of the new Assura Dgen campaigns and is a very nice addition to boot. A few names on the English part of the map updated by Cat.


Incorrect airfield co-ordinates removed from ItalyAfricaGreece map ini to remove Java console log errors.


---------------------------------------------------


SAS_Eperviers K5_Bunker Damage fix included.


Bf109 Late missing wing hooks added for Rocket loadout.


1x SC250 & 1x AB250 loadouts added to the Ju-388.


Tiger Moth & Miles Magister Turn & slip indicators updated.


----------------------------------------------------


Aachen's continued FM work:-

Rev record 7.0.2.
Expert mode in all cases. New 'mod' aircraft changes in the default mode also denoted by *.

Corrected weight of F4F-3

Bf109E1 to E3* prop pitch model changed. Reverted back to the standard 109 prop control. This was necessary because the ai does not perform properly with the manual prop. Players can still switch the prop to manual pitch (ctrl + 0 ) and should for the most re-alistic experience.

Slight Increase in Prop reduction  for B17's, B24 & B29 to increase climb rate at altitude to bring them closer to documented climb performance times.

Modified maximum allowed revolutions for B-24J engine & Increased flaps down lift slightly. This solves the issue of AI take-off in overload conditions.

Modified MerlinIII* engines (for Spitfire MkI and Hurricane MkI) to reduce the gap between predicted il2 performances and reference historical performances (mainly RoC)
Modified Merlin XII* engines (for Spitfire MkII) to reduce the gap between predicted il2 performances and reference historical performances (mainly RoC)
Modified Merlin61, Merlin63, Merlin66 (18 and 25 lbs) for Spitfires Mk VIII and Mk IX to reduce the gap between predicted il2 performances and reference historical performances (mainly RoC)
Completely reworked GriffonII, GriffonIII and Griffon65 for Spitfires Mk XII* and XIV*
Corrected some weight issues on several planes such:
Spitfire MkII*
Spitfire MkXII*
Spitfire MkXIV*
Spitfire MkXVI*

(+revised il2 compare data included in the HSFX V7 Tools & Read me's folder. You will need to unzip & replace your current version to look at the revisions.)

----------------------------------------------------

Fairey Fulmar takeoff & landing characteristics with Flaps down updated.

Ju52 3mg4e max and cruise speed revision.

Small Revision. Sunday 23rd February:-

Small revision to triggers to correct a compatibility error with the carrier takeoff mod.

Also small modification to the way that probability is randomized in relation to the probability of appearance.  (probability variable in the case of ai only flights triggering them.)

A Tiny code update but worth it.

re-run the Auto-Updater to get the changes.

Re-run the Auto-Updater.

Having trouble installing the updater. Says I have a newer version of visual basic so it won't install.
Title: Re: HSFX V7.0.2 for Auto Updater patch
Post by: CharlieChap on February 27, 2014, 08:27:49 AM
That means that you don't need to install the visual basic part as you already have it.
Just ignore that message (close it) and continue dirthawk.

i think this is a stupid question, but will there be a way to download directly the patch, not with auto updater? i have no active internet connection, sorry

Hello yakovlev,

your question is not stupid!!!

My "Internet-PC" is an old thing with a "A7N8X" board, 40 GB HDD and WinXP (year 2004).

I never get IL-2 1946 & HSFX on this old rig...!

Regards, Gerhard

You can do it with the updater.

Copy your:-
jsgmemods folder
jsgme.exe
JSGME.ini

onto a flash disk or similar..

Then at work Create a new folder for the download and put the above into it.

Then Install the Auto-Updater into the folder and run it to completion.

Copy the entire folder onto the flash disk (or a cd).

Then with your home PC:-
Disable everything with jsgme. (Move to left).
Copy the contents of the folder into your il2 root folder.
(overwriting in all cases when asked.)

This will create a 6.0.1-6.0.16 patch effectively.

(you then should edit the :-
HSFX_Client_Updater.ini
so that it has your new game path rather than that of your work PC folder...just incase you feel like using the updater with the modem at some future point.)

The Updater only contains content for hsfx7.0.2 now.

The process above should work if you need to use another PC  to get the updates for v7.

If you are looking for the old v6 Updates, no need for the Updater,  they are bundled together  in a small patch:-

for the second time in recent history, i updated il2 according exactly to the instructions given here on this site, and all is well except one thing....  no sound. 

...last time i had to go through HOURS AND HOURS of PAINSTAKING stuff a client should never have to do just to enjoy some sound with my game....

CAN THE DEVELOPERS PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THIS ISSUE  !?  omg


anyway, things like this ONLY EVER happen to just specifically me and nobody else, theres nothing more to say, and if said, would not be useful to others.

This also Happened To Me. I got The Update to Finally Take ( After Trying Once a Week for Eight Weeks ) I found "No Solution" Here or at 242 Squadron so I just Persisted and Not Sure if it Helped or Not, But I Removed My "Mods" Folder From The Il2 Sturmovik 1946 Root Folder and then Ran The Auto-Updater and Next Time Wallah! 4.12.2 HSFX 7.02 Tested It, Re-added my Mods and everything runs Fine.

Once again, I tried to do everything from starting point.
So I've installed 4.12.1 ver., then installed 7.0.
Till now everything is OK.
Then (after setting JGSME to stock 4.12.1 ) I have upgraded to 4.12.2.
After using Autoupdater I have all the time this message:

Failed to download updates.
Check your Internet connection, or try again later.

Help, please...

i am having the same problem as Is. i have reinstalled il2 and used the mega patch to patch it upto 4.12.2. then installed hsfx ver7.0 and noticed that hsfx wouldnt load. then after some research i understood that hsfx 7 doesnt work with 4.12.2 but the following patches do. i have downloaded the updater and ran it according to instructions. all i get is an error message saying "Failed to download updates, Check your internet connection, or try again later"

my internet is absolutely fine and i even waited for a couple of days to just make sure it wasnt a recieving thing. but still nothing. real big shame!

any help would be great!

Hello Charlie,

I appreciate all your hard work and looking forward to playing the game.  Until then, I need to remedy an application error saying "...memory cannot be read. Click to terminate program".   I have installed HSFX 7.01 over a clean 4.12.2, the added the update to 7.02.  I have the HSFX history mod enabled in JSGME.  Did I overlook something?

Thanks,
lyteyr

Hello again,

To clarify my post above, make that a HSFX 7.0 install over a clean 4.12.2, then added the patch 7.02 (all inclusive) to that.

Hello,
I'm not sure, but it seems to me that You should start with clean 4.12.1 version (check it please).
So, in my opinion:
1. install 4.12.1;
2. install HSFX 7.0 (try if it works);
3. deactivate HSFX via JGSM and then patch to 4.12.2,
3. at last, using Autoupdater upgrade to HSFX 7.02 (although I've problems with this last stage - autoupdater cannot link to server, I suppose).

Greetings,

Hello Is,

I followed your directions starting with a clean v.4.11 to be on the safe side and tested the game as I went along.  Everything went well until I used the autoupdater to 7.02  after patching to 4.12.2.  Same memory error message.  Hmmm.  In any case, thanks for responding.  7.01 on 4.12.1 can't be too bad, right?

Problem solved as well, thank you, Is.  Started from a clean 4.11 install and installed in pieces with IL-2 and HSFX updates following this sequence:

Start with clean 4.11.1 --> Install 7.0 (3 Parts) --> Activate HSFX in JSGME --> Test

Update game to 12.1.1 --> Deactivate HSFX in JSGME  --> Update to HSFX 7.01 --> Reactivate HSFX in JSGME --> Test

Update game to 4.12.2 --> Deactivate HSFX in JSGME --> Update to HSFX 7.02 --> Reactivate HSFX in JSGME --> Test

Run internal game updater

Hi all, I don't know if the update server is down, but I've been trying to get hsfx up to 7.0.3 for the past five days now with no luck. So I was wondering if anyone has the full patch or if I could get a full copy of il2 1946 with 7.0.3 already installed. I have a legot copy of il 2 1946 from steam so any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I had the same problem with the auto uploader.

Luckily for me, I found a french website with the 7.0.3 patch.

The site with installation guide (in french):
http://www.derrierloisirs.fr/il2/bdd2012/hsfx70.html (http://www.derrierloisirs.fr/il2/bdd2012/hsfx70.html)

The patch itself:
http://www.derrierloisirs.fr/il2/HSFX70/HSFX7.0_to_7.03.rar (http://www.derrierloisirs.fr/il2/HSFX70/HSFX7.0_to_7.03.rar)

How to install.
1) Deactivate all mods in JSGME.
2) Decompress the contents of the patch (.rar file) in your main game folder. Allow overwrite when needed.
3) Activate History Mod and other desired mods in JSGME.

It worked for me!
