BAT Campaigns Missing
« on: September 27, 2017, 10:42:09 PM »

Hi, I just installed BAT and Checkpoint Charlie over IL2: 1946 4.12.2. It seems like everything was installed correctly, the game starts fine in any of the eras (using the IL2 selector) and it seems like the QMB works fine. However, when I go to look for campaigns, there are stock campaigns and then a few of the (presumably) new factions only have a blank box for their campaigns. My question is, is this a known problem? Did I somehow just fuck up the installation? Thanks

This is no bug.

blank faction means: Nobody has ever created a campaign or mission for that new faction. The folder is still empty, as simple as that. It also means, you are invited to be the first :)

in fact, BAT delivers a ton and a half of campaigns for DOF and WAW (BoB), just mostly for already known factions.
But beware! You always see ALL campaigns available from ANY module. That's just the way Il2 is built. So if you try to start a German 1916 campaign from WAW.... it will not work.

Thanks, but i'm not sure i've gotten any new campaigns for any faction whatsoever. Do you have any examples of a new campaign that comes with BAT i could look for?

But plasmeticraven, you will recognize Mony's campaigns, they start with the year. Look into Britain, France, Germany...
I usually put "BAT" at the beginning myself.

Hmm, it appears that I must have messed up the installation then because there are definitely no such campaigns under ANY nation. Just a couple stock ones and a bunch of blanks. The strange part is everything else in the game appears to work no problem.

Did you also install Operation Sealion?
It contains BoB material

I have not installed Operation Sealion yet, no, but there should be something under france except "Normandie-Nieman" campaign even in Checkpoint Charlie correct?

Just to clarify, which part of the BAT install has the campaigns? The base install, Checkpoint Charlie, or Operation Sealion? I've reinstalled my game twice and done a full BAT reinstall and both times I haven't gotten any non-stock campaigns except for Operation Sealion, which gave me JUST BoB campaigns.

yeah, sounds fishy. Almost all modules have some mission/campaign content in it. Even EP12 already had several missions and I think even campaigns.

could you post a screen shot of the contents of your /Missions/Campaign/DE/ folder perhaps?

I actually just went around to all the BAT campaign forums and installed the campaigns manually, so that folder has campaigns in it now, everything seems to work just fine for all of them. Its very strange that the installers worked for everything BUT the campaigns.
