Minsk to Moscow: A DCG campaign for DBW and TFM-412
« on: November 26, 2014, 04:16:50 PM »



Campaign Information

This campaign is based on events in the Minsk-Smolensk-Moscow battle-fronts beginning with the German invasion. Though based on historical data, much of the gameplay is dynamic due to the nature of Lowengrin’s Dynamic Campaign Generator (DCG).

The following campaigns are available:

- Belarus. The Battle of Byalistok-Minsk.
- Smolensk. The Battle of Smolensk.
- Moscow Approach. The German offensive that reached to the edge of Moscow.
- Moscow Defense. The Russian counter-attacks that ended the German threat to the city.

Prerequisites & Compatibility

This campaign was written and tested using the SAS Dark Blue World mod pack. For information, see: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?board=189.0


I have done limited testing and found no issues with The 412 TFM modact version. The campaign may also be compatible with other modded DCG-enabled IL-2 systems, though I have not personally tested any others. You must have Uzin’s Belarus map installed to fly the Belarus campaign and the Oknevas Battle of Moscow map to fly the Moscow campaigns. The Smolensk campaign uses the stock map.

You must have installed Lowengrin’s Dynamic Campaign Generator for IL-2 version 3.47 or later. To obtain DCG see the Lowengrin website: http://www.lowengrin.com


Installation and Settings

- Decompress the Minsk_to_Mosow.zip file and put the uncompressed Minsk_to_Mosow folder into your DCG home directory.
- Make a backup of the DGEN directory in you IL-2 game directory.
- Copy the DGEN folder from the Minsk_to_ Mosow \DGEN directory and paste it to the main game folder. If prompted to overwrite files, click Yes.
- Start the DCG program. Select File?Optional Third Party Data Folder.
- Navigate to the Minsk_to_Mosow folder and select allcampaigns.dcg.
- In the DCG main screen, select Mode ? Off Line Career (Full Auto-Generation Mode).
- Close DCG.
- Start your IL-2 game. Choose one of the Nation/Career options listed above under Campaign Information and slick Start.

For best results, choose the squadron that is in the same ordinal position as the aircraft you select. For example, if you choose the second aircraft type in a list of three, choose the second squadron in the list as well. This will ensure that you receive the correct aircraft upgrades as they become available.



Compatibilities
This is a large and dynamic campaign;. I have done testing, but testing a campaign of this scope is near-impossible. If you encounter]difficulties, please notify me; solutions are usually available once I know the nature of the problem. Exploding planes on startup are the most common issue; if you encounter this please let me know (this is a problem that can be fixed with relative ease). I have created new Payload assignment files for this campaign, but as noted above it is hard to test all possible combinations.



Credits
Thanks to the SAS team for bringing us Dark Blue World, and Paul Lowengrin for the excellent DCG campaign generator.
I am personally much indebted to Scharnhorst and Lonestar for their wonderful tutorials on the use and scripting of DCG campaigns.
