I have vanilla redcore with acouple of effects installed via jsgme - one being WxTechs? And a couple of despereauxs, i will try disabling them and see if theres any change? No other mods except WxTechs cockpit updates all via jsgme entries. Time to play i guess???

Quick thought could be Ranwers random squad numbers addon??????

UPDATE It was indeed Ranwers Random Tactical numbers mod - disabled in JSGME all aok now!!

With the release of BAT v4.1.3 some missions are no longer compatible with previous versions of BAT. I want these mission packs to remain compatible with any version of BAT for as long as possible therefore I just updated the packs and removed the folders below:

- Community Pack Vol3: THE JET AGE / (UN) Iron Works T-Cats by mace

- Community Pack Vol4: THE JET AGE / (US) The La-La-Land Fires by mexchiwa

If you already have these missions, and you updated to 4.1.3, just go and delete the two folders above from your BAT.

Cheers!

Whistler there will be also an updating of the 1 and 2 mission packs? (I saw only 3 and 4 was updated. Sorry if you yet explained that but I haven't understood very well, my English is not the best)

Hi Nero,

There is no need to update Vols 1 and 2. I am not sure what your inquiry is about but here are some comments.

While putting together Vols 3 and 4 I noticed most of the new campaigns being released were "clean" (for the most part) and I decided to stop collecting missions. I still download and play new campaigns and missions that meet my eye but only for personal use. There might be a final Vol 5 someday but it would be a kind of "editor's pick". We already have ~10.000 amazing missions in these packs and that should be plenty to keep players busy for some time. The purpose of this project is fulfilled.

Missions in the packs are compatible with any BAT version 4: v4.0, v4.1, v4.1.1, v4.1.2, v4.1.3... and my desire is to maintain compatibility in this way and for as long as possible. This means, in example, missions with triggers will never be part of these packs because triggers were introduced in v4.1.2, and players getting v4.0 for the first time won't be able to play mission with triggers. This doesn't mean I won't update the packs if there ever are new versions of some missions already included in the packs! If you update some of your campaigns or missions just let me know about it and I will gladly run an assessment for v4.0/v4.1 compatibility :)

Bottom-line: this project is complete but I will maintain the missions as best as I can, for as long as I can, with backwards compatibility in mind.

Cheers!

Many of the ww1 campaigns don't work anymore for me with this new update, particularly almost every Monty s campaign. Someone also on ww2. I donno why, simply there s nothing when the mission start, only sea or land, with player dead or aircraft inoperable I Don t remember. Isince I updated the pack 3 and 4 and installed the last patch correctly I guessed it was something related to their incompatibility.. But I m not sure.


BTW YES, I m planning to update several of my campaigns, lost of the ww1 released was my first campaigns so they was very "young", and simple, many things must be adjusted, and I m planning to convert several others 4.10 dbw campaigns like the caproni ww1 campaigns (i have ready another couple of Italian ww2 campaigns with bombers, in East Africa and from Rhodes the strategic raids maked in 1940 41 against British Palestine and British Middle East, but I must test these campaigns so I m not releasing them for now) and also all the stiv a Russian Civil War campaigns for 4.10 too. I have converted yet one on ww1, it was in the Caucasus. So yes, I will send some campaign to you nextly.

I am not sure if you are talking about campaigns or missions from these packs.

All missions in the packs should load and play fine, as long as your PC is up to the task. Sure, some missions were created long ago and Flight Models or other parts of the game engine changed and some mission are a little off, but all missions should load regardless.

Just tell one mission that doesn't work for you and the version of BAT you are trying to play that mission with.

Amazing thanks so much.
How can I play as campaign?
And it’s possible to copy all the 3 folders or one by one each time?

I know I'm not who you were talking to, but every single in the community packs which was originally part of a campaign has a text file with a URL to dl the campaign. You can overwrite the missions in the campaign with the missions from the BAT community pak.I made some backtracking errors when making this video, but follow me closely as I correct myself LOL.

This happen each time I start a mission of the mission packs 1 and 2, updated the last time in November 2020. Each mission or campaign mission of these packs. While the packs 3 and 4, updated in may 2021. And I use Bat 4.1.3 with all the fixes while in the previous version of bat they did work all.




EDIT: RESOLVED. EXPLANATION : I have ever 2 pilot profiles in IL 2, one is the pilot I m playing currently, they come and go, as they die in battle I eliminate the profile and create a new one with a new name, and the John doe user profile, that I use for test campaigns and missions, in this profile the option of take off and landing was disabled, I donno why, maybe i didn't noticed it, and for that the missions of the pack 1 and 2 didn't work.
