Cant see my missions in in game (bug)


Recommended Posts

Making a simple take off and land mission to be sure. Save it in my mission folder. Then i go to missions, and the only thing i see is the folder name, no missions.

Do the exact same thing with my ROF mb and voila, works like a sharm. 

 

If i take a mission i have downloaded and just open and save it with the mission builder, it also disapear.  :dash:

Anyone else got the same problem, or got it sorted out?

Do you own the version of IL-2 Sturmovik with the map you used in the mission?

 

Did you set the mission type to "Single"?

 

Review the following in the IL-2 Sturmovik Mission Editor and Multiplayer Server Manual:

- Create a Singleplayer Mission (pg. 33)

- Cannot Find a Mission in the IL-2 Sturmovik Singleplayer Missions List (pg. 83)

1. Yes

2. Yes

3. I look at my own skill in mb as above average. But i will take another look, am not perfect. It all happend after 2.06 i think.

3. Been there already.

Tanks for the reply Jim TM. 

 

Usualy you can do mutch wrong in the mb, but you can still see it in the missions, It only does not work, So my guess it is a bug.

But some times i cant find my glases on my own nose, so who knows :)

 

I cant upload the file.... Arghh, "Error You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file"

Works OK for me. The mission is call "Error test". Have you tried deleting your mtreecache.eng. You can find it in in 1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\ ?

 

Hi Prangster. Yes i already did, it did not help.  

I love your missions by the way! And they work, But if i open one of them in mb and klick save. They disapear as well.

Can you please create a very simple mission from scratch (i.e, click File >New) and post screenshots of the following once you have named the mission and are ready to save it:

- The Mission Properties dialog

- The Save dialog, with the folder selected and the file name specified

 

Then, try finding the mission in IL-2 Stormovik.

 

Sorry for the bother, but sometimes the smallest detail can make a difference.

 

Is your IL-2 from Steam by the way? Not sure if this makes a difference as my copy is not from Steam.

 

Thanks!

 

UPDATE:

 

I notice that the filename for the simple mission that you posted earlier is "Builder test.mission", but "Name" in the Mission Properties is set to "Error test". "Error test" is the name that should show in the IL-2 Sturmovik Missions list. Is it possible that you were looking for "Builder test"? I see "Error test" in my IL-2 Stormovik.

Your test mission worked OK for me. I noticed the following:

 

- You have an apostrophe in you mission folder name, but I tested that and it works OK for me.

 

- Your path is  

 

  ...\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Moscow\data\Missions\...

 

  whereas my path is 

 

  ...\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\Missions\...

 

  I don't know if the path is supposed to change based on what version you buy. I suppose that it does change. Did you customize your path or was that the installation default?

 

  Question for everyone: Does anyone else with the "IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Moscow" in the file path have the same problem? How about those with "IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad"?

 

You could try a game reinstall. Otherwise, this may be a problem to submit to 1C support.

Your problem is with the folders name "Wandalen`s". If you look at the name in game the apostrophe has been substituted with a different character because your apostrophe wasn't in a plain text ASCI format. This works the same as with mission descriptions, if there is a non ASCI character the game stops reading the file at that point. The problem is usually found with text pasted from a rich text program such as Word.

 

Either remove the apostrophe or use a plain text version and it will work.

I bought everything you can get to this game. The path Stalingrad changes to Moscov after a reinstall of the game. I think it will be Kuban next time i reinstall  :biggrin:

How embarrassing .. It was the folder name that was the fault guys. I was sure I had tried a different folder, but apparently not.

Very happy for the help i received from you guys. This became a happy day afterall  :yahoo:

 

I will buy you a beer if you should come to Norway one day guys. 

Cheers!  :drinks:

Great! Thanks to Prangster and you, I have another troubleshooting point for my editor manual.

 

Cheers!

 

As for your quite helpful manual, which i regularly use and many times successfully, thanks again, there's one thing which i sort of miss.

Things i just began to understand from either your or other's helpful reply-mails, not too easily found in the manual.

 

Like a described example how to setup a proper bombing mission in probably various possible ways, and themes when or why to use specific MCUs like a damage MCU, use attack or attack area commands in relation to blocks, buildings, effects. Same for complex triggers, counters, de- and activate MCUs.

 

Of course the info is there mostly spread out in the manual, and using your FMB mission or group examples prove their use, but maybe a related description of what each MCU etc exactly does there in f.i a bombing a setup can be enlightening towards a beginner like me.

 

Looking at Prangster's manual sometimes things are very clearly setup on one page, but also a straight bombing setup is a bit complex with many addon MCUs for other functions implied. I know it's a tough job making manuals, sorry to criticize your work, shoot me down LoL.

 

In my past as Audio and Video editor and studio tech i often came across complex software stuff, with no real time to study manuals and details with a client breathing down your neck. My trick with new stuff and saving time was usually to read the PC keyboard shortcut list ASAP in the back, as most important functions were listed there.

 

For the OP: ===============:

I had this, and all seemed OK regarding names etc. The trick is: save your mission with a new name, and in my case: Voila!

Thanks for your valuable perspective on the manual jollyjack. I have added a link to your post to the edit comments (one of 660) in my work-in-progress version of the manual. Unfortunately, work on an update is on ice for the time being due to real-life issues. I'll still have some time to reply to some posts and keep a running log of possible changes.
