The Few - Battle of Britain DGen campaign (updated v1.2)
« on: October 25, 2014, 03:00:51 AM »

Hi all!

I would announce release of this new campaign, mainly featuring CAN_EnglishChannel map. You will fly a Hurricane Mk.I for No. 1 Squadron of the Royal Air Force during the main phase of Battle of Britain (August – September 1940).



This campaign is for UP2.01 and 4.09m.

Credits:
Laufer for building incredibly detailed and historically accurate mission templates
Marjak for hard debugging work which made possible playing this campaign

Link for download

Enjoy!

Updated to v1.1.

Introducing a German career (Bf 109E-4 belonging to III Gruppe of JG 54). German ranks have been revised, as well as a small correction was made for British ones. If you’ve installed "Moving Windsocks", you’ll see them on your airfield. Including fix for "Channel Map" error (courtesy of vpmedia).

Same link on first post.

Just follow instruction:

1). You must have Jone Soft Generic Mod Enabler (which is part of UltraPack, though - you may find at the relevant link last version and some basic instruction).

2). Unzip the pack and launch the self-extracting executable, browse directory until your JSGME folder in IL-2 main one appears in “Extract to:” window, like in the example below, and click “Extract”.


3). Launch JSGME and install "The_Few_1-1" by it. Since this campaign replaces DGen.exe and some files with custom ones, please remove by same mean when finished (thus restoring all previous files).

WARNING! This campaign works only with version 4.09m of the game together with Ultrapack 2.01!

This campaign is not made to be played in coop.

Hi greybeard

Thanks for your campaign update!
Nice to be able to fly for the Luftwaffe also  :)

Is it possible that the campaign might work with other game versions / mods also?
I don't have 4.09m with Ultrapack 2.01 installed....  :(

Possible but not easy.

You must have exactly following non-stock aircraft installed (check your air.ini):

BF_109E1
BF_109E3
BF_109E4_BoB
HurricaneMkI_BoB
SPITFIRE1

as well as following map (check your all.ini):

CAN_EnglishChannel/1940load.ini

If you don't have, I don't know even where to find them, sorry. :(

I was able to successfully install this campaign with minor updates in a slightly modded HSFX 7.03 install.  I basically replaced the _bob aircraft in the campaign files with the native counterparts found in HSFX 7 (HurriMk1 12lb, 109E4).  Global search/replace in files with Notepad++ is quite nice and allows update in seconds! 

There are also a few additional tweaks that can be done to bring it up to v4.12 standards such as adding markings to stationary aircraft and even setting custom skins if desired.

All in all though, glad to see another BoB offering and with DGEN mod.  Nice work!

Hi WindWpn,

glad you was able to get an HSFX version of this campaign. Please feel free to upload, maybe some users will like it!

Cheers,

Hey all,  yea, the working version I have now is with HSFX 703 modded, but will try with base hsfx install to see how much additional tweaking is necessary and plan to deploy that way to allow an easy to use offering.  Perhaps I can have it by the upcoming weekend or following.

Hi Greybeard

I've installed this campaign and also Bataille de France in my 4.09 install, but I can't get them to work.  :(
The planes for Bataille de France are installed and tested to work ok.
When I select the campaign and press Start I get this screen and can't use the generate button. The problem is the same in both campaigns. Below is a screenshot from Bataille de France (Westfeldzug 1940).



Any ideas what might be wrong?

Thanks for any help!

Regards
