  1. The FW 190-A8 also had thicker armor covering the metal oil cooler ring around the engine cowling and more windscreen and cockpit armor. The A8 was up-armored to increase resistance to defensive fire from bomber formations.
  2. @LukeFF, I don’t know if Sneaksie is going to like this..... he’s probably getting tired of me. I’ll see what I can do, but I’m waiting until you finish the campaign to send him the files. 🙄
  3. I’m glad you are enjoying it. The weather was a huge part of when and how missions got flown during that time frame. Maybe more than any other I know of. If I do the sequel to this campaign, which I have already started, the 370th got moved from the IX TAC to the XXIX TAC up to the north supporting the 9th Army, because they accidentally bombed the IX TAC headquarters at Verviers. There was heavy cloud cover and the real target was a bit further east. They killed a bunch of General Quesada’s staff so they demoted the flight leader and “transferred” the group out. I thought about making that mission but figured it would be in bad taste. There is not much record of that mission either. It got pretty much smoothed over by the history books. I did find out the date, time and intended target, but I’m going to let that sleeping dog lie where it’s at.
  4. You are welcome.... Oddly just below your post is someone who helped with them! Thanks Raptor, I don't know if you noticed, but since I didn't wind up doing any missions where the 307th was flying, I did feature your Vivacious Virgin II artwork skin as scenery after landing on one of the missions. It's included in the skinpack. There were no credits in the campaign its self but I did mention your assistance in something I did. I'll post it when I can. You almost had to. You can thank Jason and his generosity during this global pandemic for it being free content.
  5. Yes, it's possible. I looked and can't find the template I made it on. If you want a historically correct skin, you can make a new one and replace the one included in the Bf109G4 folder with the same name. Then it will show up in the campaign. Bf109G4_JG27 All I did was use camo layers from the template and add a JG 27 cowl badge. I may have put some additional green on the fuselage too. It wasn't very complicated though.
  6. i suppose that’s one way to do it. I like flying in formation, even though I know some of the missions have long flight times. Then again, some of them are very short. Since those were real target areas, I think that would have been fairly accurate time to target. I left out missions up to the Ruhr Valley and some of the ones deeper into Germany because they would have taken too long. i’m glad you enjoyed it. I’ll take a look at the last mission. It worked correctly the last time I flew it.
  7. Your key to activate your new Yak-9T is in your account... Thanks for looking that up and posting. Well, I'm pretty sure there weren't FW-190s in the first 9 missions, but they are in a couple of them. I used the A-5 because my recollection was it is a bit lighter but just as fast, and more maneuverable. I wanted it to be as hard to kill as possible, because for me the FW-190s are pretty easy to kill in the P-38. The A-8 is a bit more of a tank, but I believe has the same engine with methanol injection to make up for the extra weight? Bf109s are a different story. I think you are right though, they were producing A-8s in 1944. In the mission reports I read, they didn't know what model variant they were. They just reported FW-190s shooting down their buddies. It could have been any type, and I didn't research which particular German units were over the front that day. Your welcome. I watched your video, very cool idea. You did a great job of making the campaign mission look like WWII footage. Thanks for posting that.
  8. 1. Powercolor AMD Radeon RX 5700 8GB PCIe 4.0 2. Adrenalin 2020, V20.4.2, Driver V. 26.20.15029.27016 3. I do have the black screen issue pictured as mentioned above... If I go to F2 view and back into the cockpit 4. With those conditions, when I start the mission a also have a flickering circle surrounding the aircraft where trees are not fully rendered.
  9. And,,,, we have a winner! Thank you. What type of Collector plane would you like to own @J-j- ?
  10. Can anyone who has completed through mission #9 go back and start the mission and post back whether the GUI map is correct or not? I have not flown through the hosted campaign yet and it should be corrected now after the Hotfix. I'm working on something else you will all want to see so no time. Whoever posts back the answer first with a screenshot of the map screen gets a free collector plane of their choice.
  11. I just got done running through a mission on the Rheinland Winter map. I reset graphics to normal settings. No graphics glitches No blue halos around silver aircraft in clouds No shiny metallic cities rendering in the distance No flickering blobs on the ground while landing No Flickering walls on airfield buildings. Great job on sorting that out quickly! Thanks. Thanks for the info, that's what I figured. It has stopped working after several updates. I always uninstall it before an update now.
  12. Thanks Luke, coming from you that's a huge compliment. I know you don't miss many details!
  13. Yay! Glad you got it working. Now you can fly to your hearts content... or just get shot down and crash like the rest of us. That just started with a recent patch. With all of the radio call issues, I think I am going to start recording tracks with audio and work on a bug report. It has been discussed for a while but I don't think it has been officially reported according to bug report protocol. I searched for a report a few days ago and I could not find anything in the technical issues and bug reports section. It needs to be documented wit audio track recordings.
  14. The missions are long, particularly the 2nd one. It was just to save time. You will get lots more opportunities to taxi.
  15. No, thank you... Glad you are enjoying it. I felt like there would be some new players flying this campaign, but it's really not a beginner campaign. No tutorial, no milk runs, no practice missions. Those directions were my way of saying, you better know how to fly before you start. The CO said it in the briefing. If you make it through the first couple of missions you should be OK, but most of you won't. That's the way it was back then, and I think the ground attack squadrons had something like a 50% attrition rate. They did have about a year of flying experience before they started but most of them had 0 combat experience. I literally just made subtitles out of my mental checklist notes. The biggest immersion killer is to start off from a pristine airfield with no traffic. That's the problem with the in game campaign system and one of the main reasons I prefer scripted campaigns to generated ones. Thanks If you think that's Gambit21 being cranky, you should see what he writes when he is aggravated! That was polite. I'm not offended, but what he was saying is there is another place to bring up defects with the game. If there is a defect with these missions by all means bring it up here, and then I can be offended. The AI isn't incompetent, they are just a bit obtuse sometimes. Making them do what you want is difficult because they are getting pulled in various directions all the time. Congratulations, I take it that means you survived. That was really the only goal. I wish everyone was that lucky 75 and a 1/2 years ago! I'm glad you are enjoying it. Yeah I use the map all the time, I do turn off icons though and fly with nothing but a virtual cockpit and subtitles. I feel like if you were really there, you would have a paper map in your lap you could look down at. You don't. The taxi directions are just to guide you to the parking area where the mission will end. If you chose not to do that all you will miss is some scenery, There are no missions that require refueling, rearming and taking off. That's in my next one... Oh wait ... nevermind. It's not clutter, it's "interaction". Let's just not get it locked. When you release your campaign, you can count on me cluttering up that thread.
  16. I've already submitted the corrected file. It's not a huge showstopper so it will be corrected the next time there is a game update. Sorry about that but as you figured out, just go with the flow and follow directions. Or you could use it as an opportunity to navigate without GPS.
  17. The only reason I bought them was to get the badges. I don’t actually fly the game. Duh. 😉
  18. Try sending a PM to BlackSix. Just make sure you describe the problem in detail so he doesn't have to waste time trying to figure out what happened. I don't even know if he deals with accounts, I just know he does Missions and Campaigns. You need to have a current support ticket in or you will most likely not get a response. I don't know how the accounts work, but it sounds like you got your installation mixed up by trying to buy things multiple times, and now you don't have the proper access to the modules you purchased. Unfortunately that is completely out of my wheel house and not specific to this campaign. I get it that you are trying any and all means to get your issue addressed. I can only recommend patience until you get a response. They just finished a fairly massive update. It depends on the individual mission. The more times you fly it, the more ways you will see them attack. In some cases they attack the same thing every time and in other cases, they do it different every time you fly it. I think it is different more often than not. Keep in mind I have flown every one of these missions 20 or 30 times. I don't think I have seen any of them turn out exactly the same 2 times in a row.
  19. Try using the "Resave folder as Binary" tool in the Mission Editor. That has worked for me in the past. I had different issues, but it fixed them. Under "Tools" its "Convert missions to binary in folder" and browse to the mission folder or specific mission. Then wait.
  20. No, a reinstall will probably not help. You posted in a 4 year old post. Did you email support? @BlackSix said "Use our support http://il2sturmovik.com/support/" I would try that first. No one posted back on that thread so I would guess they got it sorted out. You might have to wait more than 3 hours for a reply though. It's 2:00 am Monday morning in Moscow right now. Oh, BTW, I can answer one of your questions. The reason you could not purchase the Premium Edition of those modules is most likely that you already have a collector plane included with it. You can't buy it twice for yourself. That's why I have the standard version of BOM and BOK... I had already bought the collector planes so that was my only option. Otherwise I would have the spiffy silver bars on the left that not many people have. Edit... After reading this, you definitely need to send an email to support. It would appear that has been suggested more than once previously. I can keep digging if you want...
  21. I did a forum search and found a reference to that error in this thread. It would appear you need to contact support and have them take a look. I see that you already posted in that thread regarding this issue for BOM. It would appear that you have more experience with this than I do. I would recommend you email support at the listed address.
  22. We can't all be gold... @flyer_49, 1) From Main Screen, select "Scripted Campaign". 2) Left Click Lightning Strikes image, outline turns green 3) Left Click "Continue", Should take you to Mission selection screen 4) Select a mission. 01 should be the only one visible, read briefing 5) Left Click "Start". You should get the loading screen and the GUI map appears after a bit. 6) Start the mission, magically appear in cockpit. Maybe that will get it running
  23. That sounds like you are in the career mode. You do not join units or have daily progression with a scripted campaign. Post a screenshot of the error message, that would help. The whole screen. also if you can fly the P-38 in quick missions, it’s not a problem with the download or the plane. Just take it 1 step at a time and you will get it running.
