MissionProCombo Final Release (QMBPro, MissionPro and FMBPlus+)
« on: November 07, 2010, 08:40:32 PM »

New Mission Pro Combo MOD
includes: Mission Pro, Q.M.B. Pro and F.M.B. Plus+
Final Full Release, new functions added to the Beta


  I first started just to add some options to the MissionPro, but finally I reworked not only it but my QMBPro too. In this combo I'm including my ScrollWheel function for the F.M.B. that I had for "internal use" we would say, but because I agreed with Frog and Zuti to standardize its use I'm releasing it in a more straight version.

  I posted the Beta some time ago, and now, after some testing, new ideas I had and some feedback from you I received, this is the Final Release.

  Why a combo?  -Because there are some interdependencies between classes that didn't exist before and now require that all are homoegeneous. I took the time to debug everything from my previous Mission Related MODs and make them clear.

  What is new? Look at the next pictures and the description:
 

  I made some additions to the basic interface of the Mission Pro, which are self explanatory and suggested by some of you:


  Since this Combo Final Version the the Mission Pro now allow us to change the conditions of missions, plus decide if the parachutes (a fps impacting feature) will be enabled or not. Now it remembers the last mission for Single Missions, Campaigns, Net Mission of every kind, etc. (this feature originally was only available for Single Missions and off-line campaigns).
  Now you can invoke (only for Single Missions) the Full Mission Builder (F.M.B.) from the Single Mission Pro, and it opens the mission you were working on. This F.M.B. is based on FMBPlus, but the scrollwheel operation and some minor extra functions required to make it available for other modules (QMB and Briefing screens) were implemented:
 


  The QMB Pro now has a link to the F.M.B. too. It allows you to edit the Quick Mission that you are selecting:


  It has a couple of corrections in the internal code and per suggestion of Malone I added the comboboxes for the corresponding Countries for all the flights (this is an addition of this Final Release).

  Originally I used the folder \Quicks to store the QMBMaps.ini because it was a heritage of the QMB v3.0 of Josse. But it doesn’t make much sense to have it in that folder and it is much more reasonable to have the QMBMaps.ini in the folder where the map missions are: Missions\Quick.

  So this new version looks for a list of map missions in the next order:

    1-QMBMaps.ini file in Missions\Quick
    2-QMBMaps.ini file in Quicks
    3-If no QMBMaps.ini file exists at all, the default set of Maps of the program is loaded.

  What it means: if you already had a QMBMaps.ini preferably move it from Quicks to Missions\Quick but if you leave it without any change it will work OK except you copy another QMBMaps.ini to Missions\Quick which will be loaded before.

 

  Full Mission Builder Plus+:

  -Now it responds to the mousewheel for zooming In/Out while you are editing, avoiding you of having to use the scrollbar.
 

  Since now all my MODs which include mousewheel zooming have a setting, requested by Frog, that in the [Mods] section of the Conf.ini allows you to invert the behavior of the mousewheel through the setting PALZoomInUp=1 (or 0).


Compatibility:

  -This package is not directly compatible with Zuti MDS because he uses a highly modified version of the F.M.B., but I think that easily he will be able to add the necessary changes for his final release of the MDS 1.2
  -Many things should be verified to confirm the operation in parallel with Frog's Formation MOD, but I think that in the near future we will produce standard and compatible versions.


 

  Regards,
                           Pablo

What have you done? This Mod is outstanding!! with one small download you have increased my IL-2 experience 10,000 fold!! 8)

I have never had the time to investigate the FMB, now with this i can change/edit every mission/campaign to any variable with a click of a button

the only tiny bug i get with my install is the player aircraft dropdown going up, But this matters not at all, because all can be accessed in the advanced setup menu

Thank you so much for this work....although you will now be responsible for me losing even more time to IL-2  8)

Cheers, Dakpilot

Thanks for your coments Dakpilot.

  The problem you have is the result of the different screen resolutions and visual each installation of the IL-2 has. I suggest you to go to the thread of my original QMBPro where many have discussed and explained how to solve it.

  In the ReadMe of the QMBPro you will find that are settings for each combobox. You have to go to the [Mods] section of your Conf.ini (and if you don't have a section like this you have to create it) and add a line like:

PALQMBLinesPl0=30

  30 is the default value (the one which is causing you the troubles). There is no more straight way to solve it than testing different values until one of them doesn't produce anymore the effect. I suggest you to try with 24 instead of 30.

                     Pablo
