Title: Awards
Post by: darky1958 on July 23, 2019, 05:45:43 PM
Hi Guys !

I have a question...
Where the score is saved and what award is granted for the number of score in the campaign?
In one of the campaigns, the badge is saved and later it is shown twice, despite the correct entries in the award.prosperites and awards.mat.
Where can the problem lie?
greetings

Darky

Well, in the d.gen campaign I am currently running: (Normandie-Niemen)

Missions / Campaign / FR / dgen_a_rzhev42USERPILOTNAME4   / Personnel.txt

Personnel.txt contains a record list of all awards gained. Don't know if it affects what is actually shown.

Otherwise it would have to be under the PilotName's  in Users, and inaccessible in their coded details.
                           The file campaigns.ini has changed last time I played.

Thank you for your reply.
But ... I think it is not so simple.

For sure this record can be found in the campaign's side file - only RED side or in the type of the armed forces (in this case USAF .US and other countries of the red side), but I do not know where
The problem does  occur in the all RED countries - except USN
Does not occur in the axis counties - BLUE

I use DBW 1.71

Darky

Solved !
Thank you SpongeBob

Hello again!

I forgot to explain a perhaps little known tricky issue. When creating campaigns, a campaign.ini file must be included. It has the following general format:

/Main/
Class il2.game.campaign.CampaignRed
awardsClass il2.game.campaign.AwardsRUfighter

/list/
Mission01.mis
Mission02.mis
Mission03.mis
...

The /Main/ section describes the side you fly for (CampaignRed or CampaignBlue), and the systems awards are obtained.
Here is the trick: AwardsRUfighter means you will get your medals following the Soviet way, in which some medals are awarded more than once.
On the contrary, AwardsDEfighter does not imply anything about Germany, it just means that medals are awarded in a sequential order.

See the differences with these two examples:

French campaign after a score of 25000 points - AwardsDEfighter mode:

All medals are obtained in the original sequence.

French campaign after a score of 25000 points - AwardsRUfighter mode:

As you can see, the military medal is awarded three times, and the Silver Palm for the War Cross has been replaced by the higher-ranked Legion of Honor.

I recommend to set all Great War campaign in AwardsDEfighter mode. You can safely change this before starting a campaign.

Cheers!
Very important

 I checked it ! Does work in all mods of the game...

Hello everyone!

Is it possible to differentiate between awarding medals for the Eastern Front and the Western Front in the Luftwaffe? Is there a setting in the game? The Knight Cross awarding after 1941 is the same on both fronts, but in reality at the Westerm front a Luftwaffe pilot receive KC after 40 aerial victory.

All the best!

simple answer, no.
