PWCG Bug Reports

Version 5.04: my flight doesn't takeoff at start of the attached mission. Leader requests permission to taxi (?), but it's rejected due to busy runway. In the previous mission of the same campaign (in the same airfield) it was the same, but I was number 4 in the flight and just advancing a little triggered the leader to move to its start position (he basically turned 360 deg, and nobody else "taxied"). This didn't work in the attached mission (I was number 3), so it may be something related to the start position of the last wingman.

Taxi to runway has been implemented now? I did not realize that!

 

Taxiing to the runway is experimental.  It is not 5.0.4.  For those interested, download it and help Murleen debug it.  If you are not interested in cold start stick with 5.0.4.

Looking at the issue, Yeikov's problem isn't on taxiing, but an issue with the airfield taxi paths for Davydovskiy - the planes start on the runway, but think they need to taxi, so request taxi permission, which is denied because they're blocking the runway. I'll try and update the chart for this airfield.

Before I go to the bar , order a pint .....don't talk so much and listen to the others flight 🤥......😁

Heres a pic of my map , and I'm almost sure it was my shooting plane go down 

 

In here my name in Hans in the game , but I don't think it should be something 

 

In briefing it's noticed a damage a plane , but no more ...so 

 

Thanks 🤙👍😁

Unfortunately the zip file is corrupt, so I can't test in PWCG - could you zip up your campaign directory? Looking at the log file, the kill is uncredited. I think this has been happening more in 3.006, when e.g. you set a plane on fire and then the pilot bails out - the cause of the kill is listed as bailout rather than the damage you caused. PWCG has some heuristics to spot this kind of case and still award the kill, but one of my earlier updates has caused it to stop working. I have a patch in testing, I'll try to get this finished off and submitted.

@Murleen Apologies for the confusion on my part.  I saw taxi and figured that the experimental download was being used.  Never occurred to me that the game might think that planes lined up on the runway - clearly not starting in parked mode - would feel the need to taxi.

OK, I figured out what your issue is - when you created the campaign you accidentally put a space on the end of your pilot name, which means it never matches in the log parser, so the game assumes you're a ground unit. PWCG should probably prevent this, but you can fix your campaign by editing PWCGCampaign\Campaigns\Kampftrupff\Personnel\20112052.json and removing the trailing space in "Sire "

Hello, I am new to PWCG, and tonight I am trying to install it and make a campaign for my friend and I. I installed step by step with the video linked, and when I try to select VVS or Luftwaffe, it gives me an error and tells me to report it to the ROF forum, which I assume just means I need to bring it here. It is attached below. It'll let me create an Italian campaign, but neither of the two other buttons work.  

 

I'm really at a loss as what to do, so hopefully someone here can help.

Bug Report:

After Pilot gets serious wounded PWCG wont generate futher missions. Error Message =0 popps up.

 

Hope I have the right files attached.

 

Btw...is it possible to restore my campaign by hand,or is this specific campaign lost, due to the bug?

One thing I have noticed with 5.0.4.

My kills credited by PWCG do not always match what the game credits me with.

Last flight I flew a Patrol, we came across a flight of JU-87's. That was all we came across.

I got three of them, and the game credited me with 3 kills.

PWCG however denied me one of them, only crediting me with two.

 

I think this is the second or third time I have run across this now. No biggie, just an observation.

Same here, so far it's on the Kuban map in various campaigns.  Have not flow on the other maps yet in order to see if it is map related.

Salute !!!

Fresh install of Great Battles and here is the error report.   When I try to choose which side to fly I get:   "No older planes found for archtype
    at pwcg.campaign."

Did I really screw this up?

Same here, after get wounded couldn´t generate next mission.

 

Could we have a DD for PWCG? Are you planning to add skin features?

I think you need to take a leave in order to let your wounds to heal. Try a weeks leave and see if that works, if not you may have a serious enough injury to require a longer leave.

DD - I will post something.  Remember that I am doing this in my spare time so there will not necessarily be anything new in any given week :)

 

As for skins, the features already exist (I admit that there may be a bug fix or two caused by latest changes).  What does not exist are organized skin pack downloads with clear explanations of every skin.  If I had a spreadsheet that listed skin name, aircraft. dates of skin use, and notes on the skin (squadron, individual skin or generic livery,  etc.) them skins would appear.  In RoF there are thousands of skins mapped to the game.  So it's a data problem at this point, one that I would love to tackle but cannot manage by myself.  For RoF Panthercules and others did a lot of heavy lifting with regard to skins.

I complete a wildly successful mission in which I shot down at least 3 IL2 41's. The game credited me with 4. I ran the combat report in PWCG and reported 3 IL2 41's. PWCG denied my claims but said it was for 3 migs. Mission file attached.

Thanks dburne and TheSNSFU,  I've run into the same situation.  Mission report in game shows 4 shot down but I know that is only 2 for me, the other 2 are my wing mates.  I look at the in game map before before making my claims, but even by doing that things get messed up.  Maybe fog of war?:(

I can analyze what happened but I need the mission logs more than anything else.

 

From a few logs I've looked at, I think there are two aspects:

 

- Since around 3.006, the game more often records kill events in the log as unattributed (e.g. if you shoot a plane, it catches fire and the pilot bails out, I guess the log considers the bailout the reason for the kill, not the fire you started)

- An earlier change I submitted for PWCG which increased the amount of info the game dumped into the log ended up breaking part of the fuzzy kill detection - previously if a plane was damaged by the player and then went down, the player could claim it. With the extra log info, this tracking got confused and generally didn't identify for unattributed kills that the player caused the damage.

 

I think PR 25 (https://github.com/PWCGDeveloper/PWCGCampaign/pull/25) ought to fix this - certainly I don't seem to have seen this issue in my missions running with this patch.

No the airfield is stationed across the front line in enemy territory - at least I think, could be having a senior moment.

I’m playing a campaign with jg3 in early November 42 at Stalingrad. My squadron has 2 g4’s and the rest g2’s. In skin management pwcg shows each pilot with g4’s and doesn’t show the g2’s so I can’t assign skins to most of the squadron since they’re flying g2’s. Earlier in the campaign both models were available. It seems pwcg thinks the unit has all g4’s. Any solution to this or is it a bug?
