VeteranenCampaign -- Chir Front


Recommended Posts

Hello.
I went to see the news on this forum and saw activity in this thread.
I am now re-running this campaign in the new version of the game (4.005d).
I found a way to exclude the waypoint for the player’s flight (which was added in the previous version of the campaign) after completing the main task.
Now the mission will switch to the next one without this waypoint.
Also, but so far only in the working version, added the ability to land a damaged plane in Tormosin.
If this is acceptable, then the campaign can be released in this version.
It will be possible to include your translation in the new version of the campaign after a while.

With @Veteran66's permission I recompiled his excellent "Chir Front"-missions into a scripted campaign, which has been completely reworked by @Kosman72 into version 2.01. I hope you enjoy his missions as much as I did. Thanks to @Veteran66 and the many others that contributed! :)

 

Download link:

https://cloud.mail.ru/public/Ljgx/4tSNdQK9p

 

Installation:

Extract the Folder data into your IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad main directory. If you are overwriting files from a previous version, make sure to delete the ctreecache-file in the Data-folder of the game before launching.

 

Other notes:

  • The campaign is in German, English and Russian. Should somebody want to do translations for Polish, French or Spanish, I will gladly include them.
  • The Veteran Missions work without any waypoints. The player will fly CAP with his Raven flight, receiving information about enemy movements via comms. Since this comms reference the old mapgrid and its new correspondents are indicated in the subtitles, the HUD should stay on.
  • Missions 1 und 5 start with the aircraft parked. Taxi to the right side of the runway, a little past the windsock and wait for the KI.
  • You can find @FoxbatRU 's 4k replacement skins here.

Yes, the link crashed.
There is only a working version for 4.005d as I wrote here.


German and English translations are present.

Campaign version 2.03 was replaced with 2.04 without saving the old one.
If you wish, I can give a link to the working version 2.04 on a personal page here on the forum.

The campaign works, I’m going through this version myself now.

Or wait a bit and by this time French translation will appear.

Thanks for chiming in here, @Kosman72. I was a bit fast, thinking of the JG51 over Velikie Luki Campaign. :ph34r:

Maybe you can coordinate with @DN308 to include the French translation and then publish a working version here again?

Regards, dingsda.

 

yes, of course, we will.

 

@DN308 , please tell me when the translation is ready.

@Kosman72 So, that’s a go for the translation ?

But I need the English version of the text.

As I can't download it, I would need you to send me the files to translate

....and the changes are?

All changes to the description of the campaign.

Скрытый текст

Added the ability to land a damaged plane at the Tormosin airfield.

Departure times during the day are slightly modified.

Some changes in mission conditions for enemy AI aircraft.

In all missions, after completing the combat target in the clash area, the control point for the player’s swarm was removed.

Added French translation.

Hi all, here's the old Veteran66 'Chir Front' campaign working for game version 4.501.

 

It was a combined effort, thanks to Spuks, Kosman72, and Veteran66 himself sending me the old files he still had stored on an old PC

Latter gave me permission to publish it. Credits go especially to those involved, especially Veteran66 who made it in the first place.

 

Worthwhile watching: he made a great intro for the first mission at least; I was quite impressed what one can do with the ME.

I left the campaign files as much as they were except a few found errors, probably due recent map updates.

 

I have only tested the first mission through, and it might be that some effects like landing fires are not 'set to ground' yet, and are about 2m in the air.

So who ever feels like correcting it ... please do.

 

Unzip the files into your data/Campaigns in a folder called Chir Front, and the media files should work.

If i find time i might check latter campaign missions.

 

Have Fun: http://www.mediafire.com/file/s2yk3kbw9sn5mrh/Chir_Front_Working_as_Campaign_4.501.zip/file

Hello, I am trying to fly this campaing but when I select the first mission I get this message

unknown.png

 

We found that this 041.txt is the file where all the smoke effects refer to but the file cannot be found. Replacing all smoke effects one by one is not an option (more than 500 effects per mission x 8 missions). 

 

Does someone have a smart solution for this?

 

Would be very much appreciated

The good news is that one of my squadron’s friend found the way to solve it without spending half of your life. However, the question is what kind of smoke should we replace all those effects with? I mean, “city_firesmall_loop”, etc.

 

Maybe someone reading this has got any clue of what the author wanted with the 041.txt. 
 

Thanks

For everybody, I got it right now. This is what happens:

1) You first download the campaign posted in October 2020 by Jollyjack above. Link for donwload here again:

 http://www.mediafire.com/file/s2yk3kbw9sn5mrh/Chir_Front_Working_as_Campaign_4.501.zip/file

 

2) But the link above does not include the luascript files the campaign needs. These LuaScripts are included in the previous version posted by Kosman72 un June 2020 above. I am including this files here. You need to unzip this in the Luascripts folder in IL2.

 

No integrity check errors appear now.

Just flew the first mission; really good atmosphere, custom radio calls and fights with Il-2s attacking the German troops on the ground. I've got shot down after two kills because they had the version that has a rear gunner and I wasn't really aware of that.

When I tried to re-fly  the sortie immediately, my Bf-109 G2 had no canopy anymore right from the start. Didn't get it first, needed two attempts to verify that. Thought first I forgot to close it and it did break away during the starting process but no. Will try later again.

And is there a way to skip the intro's? They're very well made but I don't want to watch them every time again I failed on the mission. Or a bug occurs.
