First of all thanks for the explanations here, Moezilla!
I have followed your advice and used all three dcg files (gobjects,gunits,armor)!
The British tanks now work without problems in the Overlord Campaign, thanks again! :)
The only thing that is not working properly are the Infantry units!
If a unit was destroyed in the campaign she no longer goes back into the respawn pool and stay with each other mission in the last position!
But its no problem, as you can see these units from the air bad anyway!

Glad you got your tanks working.

I was just checking your Second Front files and noticed that you have the stationary objects in the gunits.dcg and not in the gobjects.dcg. Check DCGs stock files for comparison.
Without knowing exactly when DCG uses these files it's hard to know if it would cause a problem.

As for the infantry, Slink seemed to have got them working for his Poland39 update, I'll have a look at the entries in technics.ini and chief.ini and see if there is anything strange. Did you add the entries for the infantry to armor.dcg? They actually come under the tank class so they may need entries there to work properly.

Strange . . . these are the .dcg files (except fobjects+crewseats) from Slink (!!DCG-4-DBW ModPack2/IL2DCG/Data folder) and I modified nothing!

Yes, I have tried it in the seperate Overlord campaign but it didnt worked properly as above discripted!
I dont believe that he get the infantry working in Poland39 properly, because his Poland39.mis file or the timetable.dcg includes any infantry chiefs!
At least what I have saw in his files I have downloaded!

Well if you've been testing it that way and there have been no problems then maybe DCG doesn't use those files except to populate the drop-down menu on the "Ground Object Settings" panel.

Hmm, let me think about the infantry some more. Maybe something hardcoded in  DCG is stopping it from working. Back to the lab.

I just fired up the USN fighter and torpedo bomber campaigns in Marcus Islands v1.2 and there were no problems with exploding planes.

Which campaign did you try and which plane did you choose?

If you were spawning in an F4F4 on a Carrier with more than one Plane, and you have   fix Cowling Engines & prop Mod, you need to delete these from the

fix Cowling Engines & prop Mod\3do\Plane\F-4F4  delete all highlighted these: (The Blue arrows)




Then no more explosing F-4F4's

Good call Bravo! I was in the F3 which is the default choice for the fighter campaign.

Should this also be mentioned on the NewTFM thread as I think the cowlings and props files are in there too?

p.s.  The reason for the Planes exploding is that the AI Planes who spawn with you are spawning with their wings unfolded on the Carrier Deck. The above modification is the only way I read or tried that works.

Still exploding. When i went to the 3do for the F4, it didn't have any data about the wings in it. Could it be BT wheel fix? This really has me confused. maybe too many planes on deck? I think there was a carrier fix patch that made the planes wings retracted. i dunno. And it's happening with the F4F-3

I'm also using the modpack for dcg4dbw. I always had problems with this since i already had most if not all of the mod planes already installed through windweapon's mod packs. I don't recall having issue when i used the standard version of dcg4dbw. Pretty lost on this one.
