C.U.P.- Module 03 - World at War Pt-19
« on: January 30, 2016, 10:12:09 PM »

C.U.P. DESIGNED TO ERADICATE IL2 UNCERTAINTY!



C.U.P. WORLD AT WAR PART-19 - THE CHECKLIST

A number of minor niggles marred the release of WAW Part-18 and the necessary Patch Part-18B (You still need that). 

Since then we have gone back to basic load order testing and resolved the outstanding issues.  I know most people do understand that integrating older mods into 412 is not always a simple business; the sheer amount of content is bound to kick up the odd issue.

The new structure is much more tidy and there are no classfile duplicates, redundancies or conflicts.

The old structure focussed more on load order testing and was very effective.  It is NOT always the latest or largest classfile that you want.  That is where we went awry last time.

Now a combination of the old methods, established with TFM, followed by a tidy up and trim, has produced the ultimate result!

The new #WAW folder in Part-19 impliments changes and incorporates all fixes since Part-18 and Part-18B - Including Griffon_301's classfile fix and many others.

We have gone through all the bombers too, tested bombsights and loadouts, there is a report on all the Liberators attached here and a complete rundown on bombers and bombsights in the new C.U.P. Manual V7.0.

Because of the thorough testing above all else its a pretty small download, 220Mb, and we call it 'The Checklist'.

Bf110G4, Bf110G4R, Bf110H4:
View switching tested
Weapons tested
Schräge Musik tested
Radar tested

Can we still launch off the Iowa class ships?
YES using the default older type of EngineMOD

How do we get the new improved Western's patch EngineMOD?
Activate JSGME #WAW_00 EngineMOD - But lose Iowa Cat' capability.

Do all default bombloads work, TB-3s for example?
Yes, all set.  Torpedos and mines are also listed but do not work as standard.

How do we get the Torpedo and Mine Loadouts working?
Activate JSGME #WAW_Config01 TORP LOAD - But lose TB-3 Fuel-Air-Bombs (FAB).

What has happened to the sounds in C.U.P.?
They are no longer locked into any particular EngineMOD version.  They can't be so easily broken and are more flexible and easier to customise.  However, it is necessary, in most cases, to actually JSGME activate a soundset in order for the sounds, and some aircraft, to work properly.

*************************************************************

3Do FIXES FOLDER:
Me410 Propshine - Fixed by PA_Jeronimo.  However, these props, like the B-17 Hueyman props, don't like to be compressed and disappear when in SFS format.  We are leaving these items un-compressed for this reason.

*************************************************************

LIBERATOR REPORT:
Beware of Classfile 2E1ADF6EDF8A6C64 - (TD's every other Liberator breaker).

RAF Liberator GRV:  Fully flyable, great loadouts, working bombsight and retractable ball turret.

US B-24J 100CF Liberator:  Fully flyable, great loadouts, working bombsight and retractable ball turret.

US B-24D Liberator:  Fully flyable, great loadouts, retractable ball turret.  However, no working bombsight (Riken never coded it for this mod).  Attempting to use the bombsight view will CTD.

TD B-24D-140-CO:  Fully flyable, great loadouts and retractable ball turret.  Must activate JSGME #WAW_Config01-B-24D-140-CO to work and will lose other Liberators.  No working bombsight at present.

*************************************************************

FLYING HEAVY AND MEDIUM BOMBERS:
SAS~Benitomuso created the best ever Bombsight enhancement for Il2:  JSGME #CUP_00-PALsVisualMOD9-v4122 to access the full range of features in most of the bombers in C.U.P.  Check out the C.U.P. Manual for more details and suggestions.

Bird Dog - Cocaine Smuggler SAS~Skipper
https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,38118.0.html
Another great light GA joins the WAW Flightline.  This is a fabulous job with some unique loadouts and arms.  This Bird-Dog also has one of the most amazingly 'lived-in' cockpits (by Greif11) you have ever seen!

Loadout Issues:
The Piper L18B and L21B Grasshopper list 'Cargo bales' and 'Skydivers' among their inventory but cannot deploy these loadouts.  However the new Cessna Bird-Dog can!  These special loadouts were in fact made for the Cessna Bird-Dog and are mirrored by some of the Piper Classfiles.  Enjoy the Grasshoppers with their other loadouts and mission profiles.  But grab the Cessna for the crazy Skydiver, Hispano MG and Cargo bales.  The bales actually deploy chutes when dropped.  With a bit of practice you can do mail delivery, or simulate more sinister drops.

There are also loads of pickup and spotter possibilities for the Stinsons and Pipers.  Only the Bird-Dog has these unique loadouts.  Also; checkout the JSGME Options for the funky Tiger Skin and grungy cockpit.

*************************

NEW JSGME OPTIONS:
New gunsight for Hurricane I and II, and Buffalo WxTech
https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=49907.0

#WAW_00_FPS 6 WEPFIX
Fix for EngineWep2.eff Errors
Fixes classfile log errors seen in C.U.P. due to altered sounds.  This can have a significant impact on performance in some cases.

#WAW_Config03-TigerMoth01
Tiger Moth skin Yellow skin by Whiskey_Sierra_972

#WAW_Config03-TigerMoth02
Tiger Moth Yellow and Black skin by Whiskey_Sierra_972

#WAW_Config03-BirdDog01

#WAW_Config03-BirdDog02
Add Greif11's grungy cockpit to the Bird-Dog.  This will also affect the Piper Super Cubs which is why you can turn it off!

*************************

MODDING ON TOP OF THIS SET:
With the level of content now present in 'World at War' we advise caution with adding more content.  The rules for most addons are written for vanilla installs and do not take into account the sheer quantity of content in C.U.P.

Your MOD FOLDER for World at War is #WAW:  We advise mods should be tested in separate folders within this structure.  Load new classfiles at the top of the order and check for conflicts and duplicates.

CUP CLASSFILE BLACKLIST:
4B598398AD1D180C - (Seafire loadout breaker)
08447B2E29097EB0 - (Seafire loadout breaker)
AAF46F6E19676E80 - (Yak-7 Spawn breaker)
2E1ADF6EDF8A6C64 - (TD's every other Liberator breaker)

Don't let these guys in...

*************************************************************

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR ALL OF C.U.P.:
Delete ...Il2/SFS_MAPS/CUPSOUNDS.sfs.
Obselete file actually needs to go completely.
Applicable to all C.U.P. Modules.
No negative effects from deleting this file.

*************************************************************

SAS COMMUNITY UNIVERSAL PATCH - C.U.P.
All mods in CUP are thoroughly credited.
CUP SFS-Mod integration is not 'theft' of mods.
SAS does not condone or practice restrictive modding.

Thank you all yet again.
One small problem for me, when deleted SFS/MAPS/CUPSOUNDS, could no longer load Burma maps in quick mission.
Put folder back and all well.
Have probably missed something but anyone else experienced such?
Will try missions later.
OK, got it, I think. Only delete CUPSOUNDS folder!
Silly old fool me!!!!!!!!
