  1. Hi JM, Thank you for all your hard work creating this campaign. I don't currently have the 2 collector planes so tried deleting the campaign files to allow me to play missions 2 - 8 with the Yak 7 - but the campaign is still locked with a big padlock on the Campaign icon! As a complete novice on the ME how do I go about either introducing alternative planes for missions 1 and 8 - 16, or alternatively, simply amending the campaign to include only those missions for the Yak? Mike
  2. Hello Shellofaman, I don't know if it will work on multiplayer, but have you checked out MOD(Icons) in the MODs section? This MOD allows a wide range of alternative options for icons. In my own case I have removed all details of the aircraft and simply have a small red (for hostile) or blue (for friendly) dot which shows above the aircraft. Much greater immersion than the vanilla icons! Mike
  3. Thanks Orlok - no idea how I missed that! Mike
  4. Hello, I know I'm going to kick myself for missing something obvious - but how do I download this? Clicking on the zipfile does nothing at all, and right clicking doesn't help. This is the first time I've been unable to download a mod - what am I doing wrong please? Mike
  5. Hi CanadaOne, I'll pick 4 please! best wishes Mike
  6. Has anyone managed to get the latest version of Reshade (4.3.0) working in CLOD? I have it working perfectly in IL2 BAT, IL2 BoS/BoM/BdP, but despite apparently 'successfully' loading into CLOD nothing shows up. Any suggestions? Mike
  7. Hello everyone, Eureka - Jaegermeister's suggestion in the post above works - I've just flown Mission 1! If you don't yet possess BoK but want to install and play what looks like an excellent campaign, just follow his instructions above: delete the '3' from the entry in the Info file '&tows = 1,3' to '&tows = 1' and bingo! Presumably if you don't have BoS but just have BoM then presumably inserting '2' instead of '1,3' should also work. Many thanks JM - looking forward to flying all the missions! Mike
  8. Hi Jaegermeister, Further to Reckoner's suggestion, sadly your campaign does not run without the Kuban package installed. I have BoS, BoM and BoBP but not Kuban yet, and having installed your campaign there's a big fat padlock on it which, when clicked, invites me to proceed to purchase BoK! I'm sure I'll probably do that before too long, but not planning to at present. Since you don't make use of the Kuban map in the campaign I presume it's just some of the AI planes from the Kuban module which are missing - perhaps they can be replaced by planes available in the other 3 modules? Mike
  9. Thank you both - sorted and all working normally now, and I'm enjoying the music and time-saving! Mike
  10. I have just installed PWCG for the first time, and what a fabulous enhancement to the game it is. Simply an unending supply of new campaigns and missions to provide continued challenge and variety to IL2 and ensure it never becomes stale. Many congratulations and thanks for your amazing efforts. Just a couple of questions at this stage. 1. I have downloaded the PWCG Music file, but don't know where to put it - I installed it in the PWCG folder but no luck (I've ticked the music boxes in the set up screens) 2. Having generated a mission, do you have to exit PWCG and then open IL2, or can you simply minimise it? And in game, once a mission has finished, so you have to exit the game or is there some way of generating a new mission (or re-flying an existing one) without completely exiting the game? A small point I know - just being lazy and trying to cut corners! Mike
  11. Whatever the problem was with freezing of the loading screen it seems to have sorted itself out without any intervention on my part. Working pewrfectly with 3.10 update now. Mike
  12. I've got the same problem as Milopapa - the game won't launch. After 2 - 3 seconds after the loading screen comes up it freezes. I've tested the integrity of the files with Steam and they are apparently OK. Grateful for any ideas. Mike
  13. Hello Sketch, I've downloaded your 2 single player missions (Rocket Training & Supply Runner) and have placed them in my 'Missions' folder but can't get them to open. I've got all the other single player missions installed and working perfectly. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Mike Hi Sketch, I've just realized what the problem may be - I have BoS, BoM and BoBP with standard flightlines - no collector planes. So if Rocket Training uses the Hs129 and Supply Runner uses the Ju52 then neither is going to open in my game as I don't have either of those planes! Regards Mike
  14. This Mod sounds fun, but for some reason I can't get it to install. I've installed the downloaded 'Multicoloured tracers' file into my Mods folder, enabled it through JGSME but no luck. I'd be grateful for any advice on installation from anyone who's managed to get it working successfully. Thanks Mike 2945
  15. I have just installed the latest version of Reshade - 4.02 - and it all seems to be working fine with the latest game update (3.009). However I'm having trouble chasing my tail and going round in circles trying to come up with the optimum settings. There just aren't enough hours in the day to go tweaking all the various options, some of which impact on the others settings you think you've just got right, despite limiting the shares to the 8 'most likely' that others have mentioned in this thread! The other thought of course is that a setting that is 'just right' for a summer map is unlikely to be right for the completely different colour palette of a winter landscape. My aim therefore would be to have 2 settings, one for Summer/Autumn, and one for Winter, which I could then switch between dependent on the map I'm flying. So my question is, does anyone have any settings they find really good, or can recommend settings that work well for particular shaders, to help me with this quest? Mike
