USN Enhanced Carrier Air Group Fighter Campaign for DGen

USN Enhanced Carrier Air Group Fighter Campaign for DGen

File: https://mega.nz/#!XvBhDQgZ!UftQ_5RwFjU61Hw0XpCNwdiTHrF_vf5DJuUOlWAlu-c
(Link updated w/ new ReadMe on 08/28.)

Prerequisites:
1. All files - both base and updates - from the BAT DGen thread here:
https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,61913.0.html
2. Be sure to download the skin packs too - some good stuff there.

Installation:
1. Just copy over to your root Il-2 1946 directory - the folders are already 
set up.
2. Back-up the DGen files in case you want to revert back.

Notes:
a. I rate these revisions as semi-historical as I've tried to use time-frame 
appropriate plane sets as much as was possible.
b. Example 1; No carrier based F4F3's after the Coral Sea.
c. Example 2; Say goodbye to the SBD after the Marianas.
d. Example 3; Say hello to the SB2C for the Marianas Op.
e. Example 4; Lots of Jills and Judys to shoot at during the Turkey Shoot.
f. Exception; The last Op - Raiding the Japanese home islands let's you 
select the F8F Bearcat if you so choose.  Not historically accurate but fun
to pit them against late war IJN/JAF types.

Suggested plan type selections:
CoralSea CoralSea, May 1942   = F4F-3
Midway Midway, June 1942   = F4F-4
Guadal1 Guadalcanal, August 1942 = F4F-4
SantaCruz Santa Cruz, October 1942 = F4F-4
Tarawa Tarawa, November 1943   = F6F-3
Marianas2 Marianas, June 1944   = F6F-3
Palau Palau, September 1944   = F6F-3
Iwo Iwo Jima, February 1945   = F6F-5
Chichi Chichi Jima, March 1945   = F6F-5
Okinawa Okinawa, April 1945   = F6F-5
Japan1 Japan, June 1945      = F6F-5 OR F8F-2

Please let me know if there are any issues/errors. HAVE FUN!!

BONUS!!!!

R0NNC0'S excellent Pacific theatre skins.
These are very high quality - and hard to find.
And they should be part of any IL-2 skin collection.

So enjoy!

...and salute to R0NNC0, wherever you are.

Great!
Many thanks for starting this new kind of addition for BAT :)

Quote
3. IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!  DELETE the following "XXXplane" DGen file as this
file will trump the entries made to the revised "PacificPlanes.dat" file:
   TarawaPlanes.dat

I do not have a TarawaPlanes.dat file to begin with?
It's not part of the DGEN BAT pack, so if you have this file, you didn't install that properly!

Hmmm...might be a hold over from an earlier iteration - I tend to go my own way on some things.   ;)

ReadMe in the download file corrected.

I followed the directions, I think, but when I try to start the campaign, I pass to a blank BAT Mission page, and freezes. My DGen log tells me "Wrongcommandline." Below, please find my conf.ini Dgen section and my DGen Log results. Any help appreciated.

This log does not belong to the USN campaign, but some German Africa campaign.
Do other DGen campaigns work?

Maybe you didn't install everything right?

I'm sure I installed it wrong. My DGen Log repeats "Wrong command lineWrong command line."
What I did was as follows:
1. Downloaded and extracted via 7zip in a new folder.
2. I had a folder named, as above in Subject line.
3.The contents of that folder were two folders entitled "Dgen" and "Paint Schemes."
4.The installation instructions read, "Just copy over to your root Il 2 1946 directory-the folders already set up."
5. So pasted the USN.... folder into the root folder, but was unable to find the folder. I then transferred the USN.... folder to the Campaigns/UN folder-no luck.
6.At that point, I opened the USN...folder and saw the two sub-folders, and installed them in the BAT game folder and removed the folder from the UN folder in Campaigns.
7. I updated the BAT Dgen folder and installed it in the game folder.
Now, I can see the USN... in  the UN Campaigns folder in the UN Pilot Career game page. I can start the first step in in the New Career page, but when I try to generate the campaign, I get the whit. page BAT page.

Sorry to be so long winded, but I can't figure what I've done wrong.
