Bug report.

There's a clipping wheel issue on A6M family (can't add picture right now), but it's very noticeable.
I checked whether this bug is present in my Modact instal, no problem here.

Engine cowlings on Me-262 are "vanilla quality" not Gero's. Not a big thing, I just added them via JSGM.

Oh, and BTW, fantastic work, this is exactly what I needed.

Thank You very much.

Extraction:

This shows how to extract with 7z (http://www.7-zip.org/download.html) into your game folder:



Filesizes:

Make sure all the parts are 700Mb except the last part which is 2Mb. There should be 16 files and the patch(es).
SFV file verification for the base pack: http://ulozto.net/xhVQNmpB/vp-modpack-file-verification-7z
Use it only if you suspect broken downloads (when you are unable to extract) or if not all files are 700Mb.



Contents of the pack

these are the folders and files which are added into your game folder:



Start your game

with il2selector.exe:

Hi VPMedia. I'm a long time IL-2 Sturmovik User from the first release.
I decided to Install your Modpack on my PC with Win 7 Ultimate Edition 64 Bit, but I had a CTD at 70% !!!

I unistall my old IL-2, and I reinstall from my IL-2 1946 original DVD. The only things I do, except what you suggests, is to copy my Old folders "Mission" and "Users" in the news IL-2 Install Folder.

I Just install the Megapack, copy your VP Modpack (and your patch too) on the new IL-2 folder and  launch the game with your selector, 512Mb and Sas modact, but the game loading stops at 70% and return to my desktop-

Try to choose "Stock Game" in IL-2 Selector and it's all OK, I can play and use IL-2 only in this way..

Any suggestion please? Thank you in advance.

Ok, thank you max_thehitman: i just try the 5 steps and you Conf.ini settings too.

I must re-dowload the VP Modpack: I just keep only the decompressed files and folders but I just delete the 16 .rar.
I used Winrar for decompressing the VP Modpack but I don't have any error messages.

But the old "mission" and "user" folders can goes in conflict with this mod pack?

The User folder is for keeping my settings (for joystick, keyboard mapping, ecc.. ecc..).
If in a Campaign in my mission folder the airplanes requested is not included, can give this problem? A 70% CTD?

My old IL-2 version have various mod planes, always with Modact 5.3 and I added various Modded Campaigns.

I created sfv files for all the 16 parts, it will help to identify problems:

Recover your files if you just deleted them: http://www.piriform.com/recuva/download/portable

Iirc a 70% crash is an ini looking for a missing file, so I think your install is incomplete.

Yes, this part can give you a 70% crash.

This may also happen if you  are missing some static-objects or there is an added line written wrong in any of the ini files.

See this....
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,22.0.html
-
The 70% crash troubleshooter

a Much rarer crash, but more tricky to pin down.
70% cdt indicates a conflict between one of your ini files (static.ini, technic.ini or chiefs.ini ) and actual new objects in your mod files
To fix it you need to find out which line in any of those .ini's points to a wrongly installed or missing object.
Best thing is to revet to backup and start over.



My suggestion would be to add one thing at a time - and ALWAYS test it first, before adding other new things
into your game. That way, you will know if a new airplane (or something new) you add to the game will give
you problems.

You can also check your Log-file after the game crashes. So you can check to see what is not loading correctly.
See if this helps = http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,13457.0.html

I thinks that's the problem for my 70% CTD is just to copy my older Mission Folder..

Foolishly I just copy the old ones with all the modded Campaigns on my new Installations of IL-2

I try to delete my old modded Campaigns, eventualy I re-install the IL-1946 from the DVD again, plus the megapatch until to the VP modpack.

Thank you again for the support to Vp Media and Max !!

Ok Vpmedia, I just check my #SAS folder (with your patch just copy in IL-2) it's:

Dimensions: 22,8 GB (24.588.924.816 byte)
Dimensions on Disk: 23,2 GB (24.952.795.136 byte)
Contents: 120.000 file, 8.057 folders
Attibutes: Reading Only

It' correct?
Some missing files or folders?

Thank you for this pack!  :D

Unfortunately, I've downloaded the entire pack twice now from the mediafire links and both times, I get multiple errors on extraction. I'm using 7zip to extract the files as per vpmedia's post yesterday. All files show 716800KB and the 16th segment shows 2493KB. There are so many errors I hesitate to paste it here (that, and I'm not sure how to copy the errors from 7z to paste it)

I know that's not much to go by, but any suggestions for what else I might try? Have others downloaded form the mediafire links in the first post and were successful in extracting?

I'm really looking forward to it!

I provided 3 mirrors for a 10Gb modpack and I also added sfv files (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,50919.msg556111.html#msg556111) so I'm not sure how much more I could help.
Switch mirrors if your files dont download properly.
