##### BAT over CUP install question
« on: January 08, 2017, 09:39:28 AM »

Question: My CUP install uses only CUP MOD3 WAW. WAW Part22.

I have numerous saved FMB single player missions that I have spent a great deal of time building. I'm excited about BAT, but a bit gun-shy about installing BAT over my existing CUP game.

I have downloaded all the BAT zips, BAT installer thru expansion pack part 4...they are residing in a different file location from my CUP game, even a different drive.

Question: I have looked at page 18 of the manual & it seems to indicate that there is no danger in doing this, but are there any potential pitfalls?

Question: It doesn't really go into specific detail about how you exactly you install BAT over CUP vs a clean new IL-2 4.12.2m + MegaPatch?

Can someone elaborate a bit?

My CUP & missions work fine now, I don't want to mess this up.

Perhaps I should do a complete new BAT game install over a clean IL-2 4.12.2M + MegaPatch?

You should always have a complete back-up of your game anyway...but you can always make a copy of your missions folders incase the game install gets messed up.
If it were me I would do a completely new BAT install and copy over your missions/skins/users/config files. (I still plan to keep my CUP Install for a few weeks)

Thanks to all.

I did what was suggested. I did a complete new fresh install for BAT thru exp pack 4. It works, but there are some issues that need tweaking.

I'm working through trying to get the config.ini modified so that the game plays the way my CUP does....Right now, I don't have any flyby sounds, so I'm not sure what to do to fix it?

I remember having that issue early in CUP & I fixed it, but can't seem to do so for BAT.

Also, I'm not sure what if any of the JSGME MODS I should activate. Right now I don't have any, because all of the MODs I used for CUP aren't in the selection window for BAT JSGME.

My mission folders are over to BAT. I'm going to copy over my skins, even though its a bit tedious...Now regarding the users, config files, not sure exactly what that means?

The last folder is your Users folder, just copy the contents into the the BAT Users folder.

The config files show up as conf (in my install) and it has all your settings such as [window], [GLPROVIDER], etc.

Go to your CUP install main folder, there is a file named "config" copy that from CUP to BAT (main folder) and everything should be the same. And the "User" folder has your specific settings in it. Make a copy of the one you have in CUP and copy it to BAT.

Here is my config if you would like to give it a try, but not sure what you have for a system...
