PWGC foro the 3 new planes? now its only a couple hrs old lol

 

Just got home from work and saw your message.  Downloading 5 GB + now.

Step 1: Release PWCG 6.2.  It is coded and mostly tested.  Should only take a couple more days.

Step 2. PWCG 6.3: add new BoBP planes to Stalingrad map.  Now people can fly the new planes.  That should only take a few days and might be available this weekend.

Step 3. Do BOBP right.  use the proper map, western allied equipment, etc.  That's a bit more time.  Probably two or three weeks away.

Step 4: Flying Circus.  Not easy.  End date TBD but it will be started once BoBP is done.

Step 5: Back to a PWCG server to improve the PWCG coop experience.

I am having the hardest time downloading the skin pack. The download never actually starts, the red thing spins around for varying amount of time, then it stops because of a network error. Is it possible someone could upload an alternate download site? I live in China, but I also use a VPN. It fails with and without the VPN on.

Just downloaded the latest version (have not used prior versions) created a campaign for 56 Squadron at the earliest start date. I changed the every parameter in the Simple Config to High. I then changed the start type to 2 (so that could start parked) through the Advanced Config. Went to Mission and recieved an error;

@Oliver88 Starting from parked is not implemented on the Rhine map at this point.  Have to start from runway.  Starting from parked requires mapping every taxiway on the map.  Going to be a bit before I can get that done.

Hey Pat,

 

Been using the PWCG for a while, but had to reinstall BOS due to idiot error.  I then downloaded 7.0 and tried setting up a new Campaign in a p-51 but am gettin g a pilot erro report being created instead.:

For the life of me I cannot get any escort missions with the P -51. I have created and scrubbed missions at least 20-30 times and all I keep getting is just fighter sweeps and attack troops. What do I need to do to get it to give me random missions. I would love to hear from others about their settings for PWCG.

If you  go to advanced config->Fighter Mission Limits (or something like that)  you will see every fighter mission type with a number next to it,  The number is a weight.  I think allied escorts are 10 or something similar.  Change that value to 1000 or something similar.  You should get an escort pretty quickly

It used to be that the numbers had to add up to 100.  That changed some time ago to just a weight.  So if the default numbers sort of add up to 100 and you weight an item 1000 or 10000 or 1000000 it is much more likely to be chosen

Well Pat I did as you suggested but still after hitting the mission create button around 20 times still no Escort mission, I set the weight to 1000 first then 100000 and still no escort mission for the P-51

I just downloaded PWCGBoS 7.0.0. I installed the the folder PWCGBoS into the BoS game folder. I did not disable or delete the previous PWGCCampaign folder. I attempted to start a campaign, and at the first step, Campaign Name, a failure notice appeared stating the name had to be in English. All the rest of the steps accepted English.
PWCGErrorLog uploaded celow.

@jlan5031jlan5031 The game is very picky about text.  It will crash if it is provided anything other than alhpa text.  As a result PWCG accepts only Alpha text.  No numbers.  No special characters.  No foreign characters.

@PatrickAWlson strange question. Forgive me if this has been asked before, but is it possible to know which serial # of a plane will be assigned to an AI pilot in PWCG? I am trying to create squadron skins for my campaign and assign them to pilots with the serial #s PWCG is creating, which might be a futile gesture as planes are destroyed/replaced etc but I have a quick template set up so I can add a skin in a couple of minutes. If anyone else has tried this or has any thoughts I am open to suggestions. Thanks!

Hi Pat,
Unfortunately PCWG does not delete the mission.txt files.
I have set the corresponding setting in the configuration to "1" (delete all files). What else can I do?

I will look into that.  If you want them gone you can just delete them like any other file.

Hey, Pat.

 

Really enjoying your program.

 

I suspect it's been asked previously, so pardon my intrusion. When deleting old missions should we delete all four of the file types

*.eng

*.list

*.mission

*.msnbin

 

for each mission we choose to delete?

 

Thanks.

Im playing the Bodenplatte campaign and have two questions:

 

- How can I switch from the FW 190 A8 to the A5 (our squadron has both but I always get assignet to the A8).

- Why is there no AA on the enemy airfields (and also not on my own?).

 

Thanks!
Cheers

Video here: You change the plane on this page of the briefing.  Click the plane name next to your pilot.  If an A5 is available you can assign it to your pilot.

 

AA spawns when an enemy is near.  You won't see it unless an enemy is nearby.

Although there was no AA whatsoever (the enemy was chasing me back to my airfield).

Maybe a bug, I don't know. Need to see in the other missions.

Thanks,

hi. is it possible to add certain planes to maps that they weren't historically featured in?

 

Eg. I would like to add the Me262 to the Kuban campaign, since I enjoy doing cold starts in that plane, and right now it's impossible in Bodenplatte.

 

Thank you

It's not impossible since the data files are text (JSON), but there is some risk and I cannot support user modifications to data files.  Anyhow, if you open a squadron file you will see plane assignments and dates.  Add the Me262 with the dates that you want and remove other planes so you don't get them.

That's interesting - hadn't thought of doing that.  Yours is a much better solution as the equipment JSON is campaign specific where the squadron files affect all squadrons.

Could be location.  Americans fly the A20 in the south and central.  British fly the B25 in the north.  Given the range though I would expect both to generate missions in your area  ...  so maybe luck up to this point.  Also possible that P47 units are hogging most of the bandwidth.
