Hey sniperton - This is a current find testing the Fairey Swordfish:

The "$"$1_1xTorpedoMkXII for example in the weapons.properties file in this cases were causing errors because the "$" doesn't import to the allpayloads.dcg not the payloads.dcg files - thus causing a mismatch. Outcome: user aircraft blowing up on runway and the culprit aircraft doesn't appear in game. Solution: removing the "$" from the weapons.properties file.

what do you think?

Hey, old chap, we've got this in the weapons file:

Code: [Select]
SwordfishMkI.1_1xTorpedoMkXII           $1_1xTorpedoMkXII SwordfishMkI is the plane, 1_1xTorpedoMkXII is the payload (internal designation), and$1_1xTorpedoMkXII is the localized display name how it should appear ingame. Can you really confirm that the localization name really affects how the thing behaves ingame?

Or is it a problem that DCG's allpayload file doesn't have it? Theoretically, it should be all the same what DCG has a localized name so far as 1_1xTorpedoMkXII matches the ingame name.

The second issue. The $isn't showing in the dcg files. 😀 I am not sure the$ is necessary at all.

Hey Sniperton! Long time no see! I stumbled upon a loadout issue with the TYPHOON1BLate4Blade it turns out that 2XDT isn't a accepted loadout, 2xdt is the correct one. This is also the case for all the Typhoons and Tempests. Can you please fix this in your tool when you have the time

Work around:

If your aircraft blows up on the runway - cycle through all aircraft to check for a pink aircraft - in this case it will be the one of the Typhoons or Tempests that doesn't recognized 2XDT as the correct loadout for 2 x drop tanks.

- Close IL-2
- Navigate to the folder of the DCG Campaign you were flying [IL-2 MAIN FOLDER]\Missions\Campaign\DE\DGen_[Current mission folder]
- Find the most recent mission file YYYYMMDD##.mis and open it in your text editor of choice
- Search for the Typhoon/Tempest and find 2XDT and replace all instances with 2xdt
- Save file

This will allow the mission to start successfully without your flight blowing up on the runway then next time you run the mission. (NOTE: You still have to fix this in DCG)

To fix this issue in DCG - you have to edit the allpayloads.dcg and payloads.dcg files in DCG folder - I have 1 in my data folder and another in each third party campaign folders.

The problem is that there's a 2xdt for the US planes and a 2XDT for the Japanese ones.
But as I see in my generated weapons.properties file (timestamp 30 June 2016), they are all correct. Could you please check whether you have this file?

Can you generate a DCG mission with that load-out using the Typhoon or the Tempest? I believe that some aircraft have their load-outs hard coded in the aircraft file. My weapons.properties is dated July but it has the same information as yours

My PC is fully messed up ATM. Anyway, DCG just uses what it finds in the allpayloads and payloads file. If you have the correct types in both, you'll be fine.

Please check [Il-2 412 CUP]\#WAW\STD\i18n\weapons.properties for:

A7M2.2xDT                               2x DT (300l)
...
TempestMkV.2xdt                         \$2xdt

If you have the correct types, DIT should have converted them appropriately into DCG format. If there's a difference between weapons data and allpayloads data, please re-run DIT on them.

So if you have those loadout entries correct in the weapons file, then there are two possibilities:

I decided to reinstalling your Compatibility Mod and redesignating all the outlying weapons from scratch in the available payload using IL-2 DIT - this way I will be in sync with anything you have coming down the pipeline

I know you asked me for my payloads.dcg and allpayloads.dcg awhile back - so now when I am done, I will shoot it over to you and I be sure the files will jive with the weapons.properties file that came with the Compatibility Mod.
