    You’re welcome, Vander. I’m still trying to track down some more but I’m having difficulties accessing @GCF’s skin directory. Hopefully I can wrap up the Dr1 skins later today. S!


    The Jasta 6, Tuxen skin has a straight "balkenkreuz" on the rudder. Is this correct? I can't find any reference pictures...

    My recommendation would  be: Forget it at least  until  next patch.  Something will have to be changed, and whatever workaround you might find now might be broken then.

    Just enjoy flying  in the meantime...


    I agree. Devs first need to look at this. For all we know it can be fixed easily.

    The newest version works miracles too !

    Being able to easily create coop missions for 16 (and more) planes to join in from both allies as well as the axis side is an incredible feat.

    In the DCS ME it takes me a great deal of time and effort to achieve such a thing and thanks to SYN_Vander s program it is done in a heartbeat.

    Maybe one suggestion (I realize may surely not be important for others) ...

    I have created quite a lot of missions for many planes and time periods.

    I like to adapt those missions from time to time, but there is no (re-)load option AFAIK, only mission save as ...

    Would be very usefull (to me anyway)  as a mission overview list and/or update feature.

    But again, many thanks SYN_Vander. 


    Ah yes, been thinking about that. I'm also a user and also get annoyed to have to redo settings :). I'll add it to the backlog (which is getting way too big :) )

    Update is also on the list. First step will probably to get a notification that there is a new version...

    Im happy to report that we flew a Bomber Escort Mission the other day and the bombers made a successful run..Cant wait to see what other surprises you put into this CG...Salute!


    Weird, because I have changed nothing! It's a bug in the game. But I do know, not all bombers behave the same regarding this bug. I hope the devs fix it soon.

    I’ll start with all of the J11 DR1 skins. If I didn’t already create them, I know who did and where to get them. I have an early J11 default (based on MvR’s 127/17 DR1) that I’ve never published. I’ll edit this post with links to my skins, or the original painter’s skin (provided they approve). S!




    Dr1 Squadron Skins


    Early Default - Jasta 6 - Feb.'18



    Early Default - Jasta 10 - Dec.'17



    Early Default - Jasta 11 - Mar.'18





    Dr1 Squadron Pilot Skins


    Manfred von Richthofen 127/17 - Jasta 11 - Mar.'18



    Manfred von Richthofen 477/17 (Version 1) - Jasta 11 - Mar.'18



    Manfred von Richthofen 477/17 (Version 2) - Jasta 11 - Mar.'18



    Hans Joachim Wolff - Jasta 11 - Mar. '18



    Werner Steinhauser - Jasta 11 - Feb. '18 (wounded Mar.17, 1918 - may have been inactive at the time)



    Unknown pilot - Jasta 11 - Mar.'18



    Robert Tuxen - Jasta 6 - Mar.'18 (credit @szelljr)



    Eberhardt Mohnicke - Jasta 11 - Mar.'18 (wounded Mar. 1, but his Dr.1 was photographed in line-ups at Lechelle - credit @szelljr)



    Johann Jansen - Jasta 6 - Mar.'18 (credit @szelljr)



    Note: MvR scored 2 victories with Dr1 127/17 and 4 victories with Dr1 177/17 from Mar.26 to Mar.30. His Dr1 425/17 was thought to have been photographed at Lechelle during that time, but there are others that believe the all-red Dr1 was actually 177/17 (which is why there are two different versions of 177/17).


    More to come ...


    Thanks for the new Jasta 6 (and jasta 11) skins!

    I confirm that the B25 works fine.


    Here are the results from my tests which have been reported to the dev :

    - He 111 h6 --- Not working anymore.

    - He 111 h16--- Not working anymore.

    - A20b--- Not working anymore.


    - Ju 88 a4 --- Works fine

    - B25 --- Works fine

    - Pe2 s 87 --- Works fine


    For He111 and A20, they don't respect the waypoint. If they are close to the drop point, they open their hatch but do not drop and fly towards.


    I have done tests where B-25's also ignored the waypoint. I think the angle between last waypoint and ground attack MCU is also important. In any case it's a bug.

    F2b Bristol also doesn't work anymore.

    Thanks for all your work and  enthusiasm 😊 Just a question , the Tank Crew integration in your app go ahead ?

    I did integrate tank platoons into the app and created a first template for Prokhorovka map. But now I committed myself to create this mini campaign for FC, so hopefully can pick this up again during christmas holiday. But to be honest, the main reason for slow progress is that my heart isn’t into it (yet) and then it’s difficult to justify all the hours I need to spend to make this work (tank crew that is).

  7. Looking good gentlemen! I have finalized the mission scenarios and did all the necessary reseach so units, weather, locations are correct. SYN_Haashashin is helping to build the scenery and will no doubt help finish some missions. The funny thing is, doing all the research and creating mission objectives & briefings is more work than creating the actual missions themselves :) .

    Be aware that the action takes place in a very narrow time-frame; only the last couple of days in March 1918.


    Player will fly for Jasta 6 & 54 Sqn.

  8. I have created a new version to fix some bugs:


    Release Notes v24b
    -Fixed a bug where the generator would fail if you did not select the "Additional AI flights" option
    -Fixed a bug in weather configuration: It would never snow
    -Added option to manually select weather/snow (only works when overcast)


    Download is here: https://sites.google.com/view/il2-great-battles-emg/


    Note that there is a bug in the current IL2 build that prevents bombers from level bombing. Please use "Attack" scenario instead for now.

    Great job Vander, thx a lot for EMG ;)

    2.2 work well, 2.3 work well, 2.4 don't work for me 1432526901_EMG24.thumb.jpg.b697c422a8e95acc9650f487b1124350.jpg:


    Thanks for reporting this bug! I made a mistake that causes this if you do not select AI flights. I will create a hotfix for this

    Do you have any plans to add an update feature to the app itself, so it can be updated without having to download the latest version every time?


    I`ve no idea how much work this would be, just wondered if it had crossed your mind at all?


    Yes, that would be very nice considering the amount of updates. I'll see what is possible.

    i got a similar problem with enemy AI Bombers in my missions witch worked fine before the last patch.
    Before the Patch they dropped the bombs where they should, now they flight straight on after reaching the last way point before the "command: attack area" (attack ground).


    For testing i changed the "attack area" into "command: attack" that causes the Bombers to cycle endless at the last way point before the command attack.
    Tested it also in a quick'n dirty new mission, same behavior (tested with  B25 and A20). 



    Thanks for confirming this!

    Great cause I really enjoy your app and look forward to seeing snow....lol


    It's good you mentioned the snow. Indeed, it could rain but never snow! I fixed this and made the choice explicit by adding a tickbox. During winter it will snow, else rain. The intensity is random, but not varying too wildly. Be aware: will only work with overcast clouds.

    Yep we followed them way past the target and the rest of the group was in a huge melee over the target airfield, so we turned to help. I think this is the first time we have used your Gen since the last game update.  There's always some screw gets loose when we use something after a new patch



    yes, I tested couple of things. All I know for certain is that wp2 does get triggered. I posted this bug in the beta testing forum.

    Yes we were 8 P-51s escorting B-25s 6 of them I have the mission if you need it. Any way we were on the Rhine map and everything went well until wp2 they never turned towards wp3, they kept straight.




    I managed to reproduce the bug. Did you also use airstart? I have seen this behaviour before and as far as I can till it is a bug in the game. The aircraft completely ignore the first waypoint. I thought I had solved this by delaying the activation of the " Dogfight triggers", but alas here it is again. I'll investigate more...


    Update: Seems to be a new bug. Can't see anything wrong in the mission file. The bombers do radio that they are going to bomb, so they did get the correct command, bu then just drone on. I have never seen AI fly in a straight line forever. Usually, if they have no active waypoint they just fly in a lazy circle.... This is definitely something new.

    Ok, I'll do Pfalz DIII of Jasta4, is this will be ok (with fuselage numbers or clean version)?






    Well, we need at least a generic version, but one " special" would be nice. I guess not all Jasta 4 planes had a blue tail? Do note that the picture says " 1917". Did Boenigk still fly this plane in March 1918? 

    Well this source says March 1918, so I'm okay with it! :)

    And they never turned back after that? That’s almost impossible...
