Ok well Im having the same problem with the Luftwaffe Campaign.
When I hit generate, the game freezes and flickers.
With the USAAF campaign it works fine...my god, Im so used to lightweight German fighters with heavy cannons that this behemoth (P=47) with .50's is quite a challenge!
Ive don the download onto desktop and renamed the appropriate folders, and then used those to replace the ones in the Dgen file.
I also have the cockpit pack and antos 109 pack-albeit with several of those planes deactivated, as they wont work anyway.
So....any ideas whats going on with the Luftwaffe campaign?

EDIT: Started another campain as a USAAF P-38 driver. First mission was great, much easier than the jug, but when I tried to load the second mission it said loading failure=Null....? ???

when loading failure=Null appears just load again and it should work


Check in FMB if the Bf 109 G5 and G5AS are working, that the planes from Anto you will need.

Try to start a Lw campiaign in Late 1944 and report if this works

As per our PM's I downloaded this...http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=2615
Wasnt sure what it was suposed to do, but whatever it did it works great! Now all campaigns work well. I think there may just be too many planes though, cause sometimes when Im escorting the bombers (p-38, first USAAF campaign) and my 8 P-38's get jumped by 15 190's and 8 109's ( ???) in the ensuing furball the computer will freeze and "Il2.exe has stopped working" pops up on the desktop. Not a fault of the mod though, I just thought my quad core would handle it!

EDIT: Ok one more thing, I added planesdeO.dat so that I could use my D-15/262B-1a etc, but they dont show up. What am i missing? isnt that one of the files that had to be changed?

If your Bf 109 G5´s still don´t in the game, the campaign will produce an error at the next mission which uses that planes, perhaps you can play ten missions without problem perhaps it´s at the next misssion.

Concerning the freezes, i think it´s a matter of RAM, not of the quad core cpu. The Berlin map which i´m using for this campaign is very demanding for RAM and cpu. Do you use one of the exe version which are coming together with UP? Using one of this files can solve this problem, you have to try out which one is the best for you. For me the 512 MB exe was the best until using the 4GB version for 64 Bit systems.

Keep in mind that my modded dgen campaigns are driving the game to its asolutely limit. It´s always very tricky. If something with the installaion is wrong, it´s going worse. There is one member of the german community who reported me for every new version of this camapign that he always getting crashes for the Berlin spring 1944 subcampaign, but he is the only one, i can´t reproduce this problem. That the Bf 109 G5´s don´t work together with your installation is a hint that something don´t work like it should, perhaps an updatewith the online update can solve this problem.

Concerning the use of the Fw190D15 or/and Ne 262B-1a, the planes will only be available for the players flight, they don´t show up as AI planes, that was the only possible way to add them occasional to the campaign, as long as they aren´t part from the UP.

Ok so the AI using a plane that I dont have (G5) will effect how the game runs. Got it. Im trying to figure out whats wrong with them. I didnt think it would be a problem as long as I didnt select the G5.

Well my system has 8 gigs of RAM on a 64 bit system, so I would think it would be fine. Im not sure what you mean by "exe version which are coming together with UP", Im running up2.01 if thats what you mean.

AS far as the optional planes thats what Im saying, Im not getting the option for them even thought they are installed, and I added the .dat file as per the install guide.

Look into the folder \jsgmemods of your Il2 install, there you will find a \00_4GB_CLIENT_Executable subfolder, that´s the il2 EXE you can activate with the "jsgme" mod enabler. This exe makes Il2 using more than the 2 GB it can use in stock version (cause it´s a 32 Bit application). That should give you a performance boost - without it your 8 GB RAM are useless for Il2.

There is also a version of the 4 GB exe for use together with Track IR - \00_6DOF_Tracker_4GBVersion if you use TrackIR that should be the right one.

Try it, it works fine for me.

The closest thing I have to either of those is 00_6DOF_Tracker_2_0_sHr im not sure if thats the right one. Then again Ive never used JSGME for anything, is there another way to install it?

you can copy it "per hand", backup your il2fb.exe and copy the concerning exe file you choose into the il2 folder

EDIT: Here you will find another interesting thread for 64 Bit use

http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,2476.0.html


concerning the Fw190D15 and the Me262 night fighter, they will show up only in the last three subcampaigns, as the were late(st) war planes

I found and downloaded the 4GB patch in another thread, so I should be good to go, the high altitude with lots of planes and contrails just slows me down.
I realize that the d-15/262b-1a are late war, but I cant access them at all.
