Asura

First problem.

Notwithstanding Random Transfers were OFF



and a transfer was planned to Kluang on 6 February 1942

DGen motu proprio moved to Batu Pahat



while on planned date no transfer was performed



Previous transfer was performed as planned

No sir. [AF_OFF] section is empty.

Second problem:



this happened at second mission of "CoralSea" episode, blue side. All related files are same of previous campaign; it changed only the generator version (from 2.0.1.2 to 2.0.3.4).

The problem with change of airfield by jump is (sharply) connected with that that the list of indexes of airfields changed concerning the list of the AF files. It is necessary to understand that became the reason. As example:

At the beginning of mission the generator creates the list of airfields with indexes.

AF1 - 00
AF2 - 01
AF3 - 02
AF4 - 03

The player is based on airfield of AF2. If in the course of mission preparation the list of airfields changes (for example the section [AF_OFF] switches off AF1) indexes change.

AF1 - OFF (not in list)
AF2 - 00
AF3 - 01
AF4 - 02

The index of basic airfield of the player remains 01, but it not to AF2 and AF3 any more, it turns out races.

Also in all parameters connected with placement and a transfer parameters (the plane, squad, date, etc.) are checked for coincidence all without exception. At the correct task of all parameters placement and a transfer will correctly work.

Cant select target - the problem connected with that that this day, for this plane, at this distance for this mission wasn't the suitable purpose. It is necessary to check everything in campaign.

That day, that plane, at that distance, got a mission by DGen 2.0.1.2;

It is not necessary to check campaign, it is necessary to check DGen 2.0.3.4!

Thanks for the kind help,

Spasibo.

http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=1675

This is previous version, which works with DGen 2.0.1.2.

I'm going to send you at dgen.service@mail.ru files to overwrite and get version 2.5, which works with DGen 2.0.3.4.

The two glitches I mentioned above are found playing episodes:

Singapore2 of campaign "Pacific War" for IJA.

CoralSea of campaign "Pacific War" for IJN.

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

Still bad news, sadly. :(

I tested another campaign (Kurland) with DGen 2.0.3.4, flying Yak-3 for Normandie-Niemen, and had troubles with fuel. Mission was an escort to IL-2 to a target not far, but Shturmovik is slow and suffer of the "Repeat Attack" (Povtorite Ataka!) syndrome, so Yak-3 flew at full throttle all the way, loitering on target waiting for IL-2 to be shot down or getting out of ammo. As a consequence it ran out of fuel close to home airbase, at the end of return trip.

I'm strongly convinced , for the way the game manages AI and missions, that radius of action should be 1/5 of full range - please think it over (obdumyvat').

Second and last tranche of new features translation; indeed, previous ones that i posted here were related to version 2.0.2 of Asura's DGen in respect of 2.0.1 - now I'm posting new features of version 2.0.3 in respect of 2.0.2:

Code: [Select]
ATTENTION! Starting with version 2.0.3.0 DGen_mod is not compatible with old seaplane dynamic campaigns. Missions in these campaigns are created with errors. Look for compatible new campaign.


FriendlyAAASkill – sets the skill of friendly anti-aircraft installations.

Available values are:
FriendlyAAASkill = 0 - the value of skill is taken from the campaign template files.
FriendlyAAASkill = 1 - all antiaircraft guns are set to cadet skill.
FriendlyAAASkill = 2 - all antiaircraft guns are set to newbie skill.
FriendlyAAASkill = 3 - all antiaircraft guns are set to veteran skill.
FriendlyAAASkill = 4 - all antiaircraft guns are set to ace skill.


FriendlyShipSkill - sets the skill of friendly ships.

Available values are:
FriendlyShipSkill = 0 - the value of skill is taken from the campaign template files.
FriendlyShipSkill = 1 - all ships are set to cadet skill.
FriendlyShipSkill = 2 - all ships are set to newbie skill.
FriendlyShipSkill = 3 - all ships are set to veteran skill.
FriendlyShipSkill = 4 - all ships are set to ace skill.


EnemyAAASkill - sets the skill of the enemy anti-aircraft installations.

Available values are:
EnemyAAASkill = 0 - the value of skill is taken from the campaign template files.
EnemyAAASkill = 1 - all antiaircraft guns are set to cadet skill.
EnemyAAASkill = 2 - all antiaircraft guns are set to newbie skill.
EnemyAAASkill = 3 - all antiaircraft guns are set to veteran skill.
EnemyAAASkill = 4 - all antiaircraft guns are set to ace skill.


EnemyShipSkill - sets the skill of the enemy ships.

Available values are:
EnemyShipSkill = 0 - the value of skill is taken from the campaign template files.
EnemyShipSkill = 1 - all ships are set to cadet skill.
EnemyShipSkill = 2 - all ships are set to newbie skill.
EnemyShipSkill = 3 - all ships are set to veteran skill.
EnemyShipSkill = 4 - all ships are set to ace skill.

I think there's an error here:



Code: [Select]
New "Types":

HyRecon - reconnaissance seaplane, codes file ops*: Hr, Hx
HyFighter - fighter floatplane, code file ops*: Hf
HyFighterB - fighter-bomber floatplane, the codes file ops*: HfB, Hx
HyPatrol - patrol seaplane, codes file ops*: Hp, Hx
HyTransport - transport seaplane, codes file ops*: Ht
Patrol - land-based patrol aircraft, code file ops*: Pt

Extended Line 1 - defining hydro aerodrome (seaplanes taking off and landing on water):



Code: [Select]
Hydrodrom - a sign that these coordinates are used only for seaplanes.


Extended line 2 - defining airfield, installed on the template (objects 1-5 Test runway in full editor):



Code: [Select]
TText - line from a campaign template with the description of the object. In forming the object of the mission of the template will be identified as an airfield.

Examples of lines in the file:

106498.44 113560.65 555.00 0.0 0 2 1.0


[ChangeSquad] - not a mandatory section. The mechanism allows the player to transfer to the new squadron. When translating the name of the squadron changes and a new set of colleagues is made, with all the player's merits saved. The algorithm works at the beginning of each episode.

Format section:
episode_name Squadron_old Squadron_new

Sample section:

[ChangeSquad]
Moscow_1941_07_14HB 1TBAP 3TBAP

Advanced format string:



Code: [Select]
Key_point - city (key point) of section [Towns] inside file [episode_name].DB. Link to the city in line instructs the generator to seek targets primarily in the area of that city. The option works for static purposes: warehouse, port, city, airport/seaplane base, railway station, an artillery battery, etc.

*** - Operation "Rhubarb"(© Motorhead):
Operation "Rhubarb" was one of the first offensive operations (along with the Circus), conducted by the Royal Air Force over France since the beginning of 1941. The aim of the operation was to inflict damages to the German facilities and communications using surprise attacks by small groups of planes. Similarly to the "Circus" operations, "Rhubarb" couldn't cause serious damage to the German troops in France, however kept the enemy in suspense.
Plan of Operation "Rhubarb" provided the flight level or the pair of fighters for a free ground hunting for objects in the enemy's backline, with mandatory use of low cloud as a shelter in case of emergence for enemy fighters. The most common operation was performed by two fighters, sometimes four, in this case the second pair can act as a cover. The group was led by an experienced pilot, who chose the target in its sole discretion: cars, trucks, trains, locomotives, aircraft guns. A fine moving staff car could decapitate a whole division.
The pilots of the Royal Air Force did not like the operation "Rhubarb" as Spitfires and Hurricanes were very vulnerable to anti-aircraft fire. In the first of such operation carried out on 12 January 1941 the pilots of 242 Squadron, killed an experienced pilot, Willie Mack Knight, a veteran of the Battle of Britain. Despite the high level of losses, not always paid off by inflicted damages, the operation "Rhubarb" with "Circus" were carried out roughly until 1944.

Not sure to have understood.

If you mean the updated DGen, see first post.

About manual, Asura repeatedly complained to have no translator; if you settle, you can append the above translation I made of new features to the good old 2.0.1.2 English Manual and you will have all! ;)

I download this version to many months ago... I refer to the new features like circus mission or the city to attack/defend/etc...
And about the manual, I only need some info like the previous sections and trial & error  :P

Indeed, version 2.0.3 was issued in May, but "Circus" operations were already available with previous version 2.0.2:



also having its manual only in Russian, so many users may have missed it!

"City to attack", as you call it, are a new feature of current 2.0.3



info in previous sections are the sole translation available so far, AFAIK.
