Il-2 Campaign Validator v1.0 release
« on: December 22, 2020, 01:51:29 AM »

A long time ago I released a validator python script to help convert campaigns to new modded standards and between mod packs. The goal was to have something generate a report about missing objects, skins, aircraft, etc. Life happened, and I didn't get around to making more than this python script. Now, five years later, better late then never, I present the improved Campaign Validator v1.0.

Dowload link here:
https://www.mediafire.com/file/q03947l7ermellq/Il2CampaignValidator1.0.7z/file

Last time, people had problems setting up python on their machines and running the script in the console; now I've bundled it all into a .exe that will spit out text files and even auto-correct several aspects of old campaign missions so you don't have to sit through the tedium of doing so yourself. You can use it for any Il-2 mod installation, just point it at the correct STD folder.

Here is the sample output of Poltava's Finnish Buffalo campaign for an earlier version of BAT, which has not been compiled with the new BAT standard. The skin errors are because I don't have them installed in the test installation, it's just to demonstrate. As you can see, lots of the stationary aircraft do not have markings, and a stationary I-16 can't be found in mission 43-5.

Now with this new version, in addition to just finding errors, it gives you some tabularized information such as mission date, objects/aircraft used so that you can see where substitute/hack aircraft and ships are used and fix them. Also new is the ability to look for markingless static aircraft (a side effect of converting old pre-4.12 campaigns). The most useful change, however, are some tools to automatically fix all these broken static aircraft and auto-fix missing static objects (sort of like a find-replace) in a customizable way for every mission in a campaign in a single click.

Instructions are in the readme. Settings.txt lets you tell the program what to do. "Common Conversions.txt" is a list of all objects you want the program to find and what you want it to replace them with, separated by commas.

Ah, this seems great!

Your old script was worth gold and it helped me a lot.

there's a small typo that might confuse:

the path in the settings.txt must be Missions\Campaign\.... (it is Missions\Campaigns\...)

This seems like heaven to me!!!  ]hello2[

But I am having a problem, and not a small one: when I try to run it, the .exe file just ... vanishes. And nothing happens. I have done the settings correctly, I think.

Is this some anti-virus in my rig getting nervous and messing it up, or what? Or me just being dumb?

Have you looked in the output directory to see if it generated the report file? If all goes well it should open, run, and close, leaving you with either the report and/or the auto-corrected missions, there's nothing to interact with in the program itself, it's all controlled from the settings text file. If there's some sort of error, either the message will be in the console, or get written to the report file.

... many THX for sharing your tool ...  ;)

I don't know if it is just me, maybe it is a false positive, and I know antivirus progs don't like exes quite a lot, but my Avira didn't like it at all and put the exe directly in quarantine ... !  :-X

Very common with user-made non-commercial small executables like this; you can safely ignore it.

Could this tool be used to help convert the very old campaign (I think from th mid 2000) "Ostfront"? It was a very long campaign starting I think june 22 1941 ´til the end of war. It was an commersial addon for the game and was great fun to play.

If you have the campaign files, then yes. I don't have it.
