Hi ,

first of al many thanks for this great campaign.

I have a Question ,

is it possible to get the Mission also as Coop Mission ,

it would be very nice to fly with one or two human Wingman.

Thx & Greetings

Trantor

 

Yes you can, you just have to make some small adjustments in the editor to make the planes coop compatible and maybe tweak the complex triggers a bit to trigger with both planes.

Hello. I just have finished your campaign, this was a very pleasant one.

I liked all the atmosphere, all the details on ground, even on parking start. All  messages made situation and objectives clear.

Missions was not too difficult, I mostly made them at first, even if I came back with some holes in my plane. They were quite various.

There was only one problem when the leader make flight circle instead of chasing Pe2 bomber, after having chased down the few I16 that was there for escort. So I get home alone...

Many thanks for your work.

These are some great missions and quite varied and I especially like the  taxi and getting into position for takeoff, however The Butcher Bird is one B---h to maneuver on the ground.

You have to be extra alert whenever you release the back pressure on the stick (tail wheel lock) in order to make a turn because The Butcher bird will spin 360 degrees in a flash.

Something special in one mission is to have the canopy open for startup while it is raining and I'm getting raindrops on my windshield and GOGGLES, then startup,

close the canopy and the goggle raindrops start evaporating.

But good fun!!!!!

Looking forward to an additional FW190 campaign from you and hope you make the missions really tough but not to long..

Thank you Jade_Monkey for this great campaign.

 

I've enjoyed the first missions really a lot.

 

Unfortunately now I stuck at Mission 03 - 'Disrupt the supply from the Volga' and cannot progress to the next mission.

 

The planes didn't take off after taxiing to the runway.

I've tried it several times, also waiting a looong time with 8x forwarding without any success.

 

The mission 02 - 'Morning surprise', where the planes are taxiing in a row, works still fine.

 

Is this maybe happened with the latest update?

 

I really hope I can progress with this campaign.

 

Thank you in advance.

I think you have to be in the exact  position offset and behind the 3rd plane before things start to happen.

However,  when the wait seems excessive I start to taxi around the 3 planes ahead of me and this always triggers them to begin their takeoff.

Thanks or the feedback @King_Franky, I have heard there were some other issues with takeoff in some of my SP missions too after the latest patch. I'll take a look at it this weekend.

 

@fiddlinjim, you are right, sometimes you can somehow trigger the takeoff behavior but it's very inconsistent. I would love to see some more polish in the takeoff routines, so the AI is not as picky.

I have a problem how to unlock/lock  tail wheel  of Focke-Wulf Fw 190 ...Lshift+g does not work..only landing gears rice

 

kindly Jussi

 

Lock tail wheel = pull the stick back!

Unlock tail wheel = release stick in neutral position!

 

That's the way it works and always did... and historical correct.

Thanks for the help @namhee2, that is the right answer.

 

I will re-upload the campaign over the weekend since we've had multiple updates since the last time.

 

I might add some cosmetic tweaks too but nothing major, at least not until I release my Red Tide campaign. Then i might come back to this one and update it to a new standard.

Thanks For your hard work.Just Finished this campaign.Very enjoyed. Big thanks ;) FW-190 my favorite.It is a great and powerful fighter. I made 28 kills in this campaign with this beauty  :).

In Last mission it was so hot, and when i just shot down P-40 i received the message  from command to cancel fight and we with my wingman run away. 1800 horses helped to as to keep alive :).

FW is the Best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

P.S. One day i will be back to last mission and will try to cover those cargo planes. And will try to fight with russian planes in FW-190 stile.

Really enjoy the immersion you've presented, and the mission variety - about halfway through.  Had to turn icons on for the Rainy Day patrol mission as I couldn't keep in formation through the layer after takeoff.  The climbout and fight were fun, and then the let-down through weather to land was incredibly tense.  Really cool.  Thanks for the hard work.  Oh, only question I have is why the flight plan info on the mission map seems borked?  Altitude is reading as 52m or similar, when we are flying to 4K.

Thanks!

The altitude was not added as part of the mission planning, so i wouldnt use that as a reference.

Awesome campaign! I never get tired of this one! Route speed has improved from 300kmh to 460-500kmh . That's big step for JaBo missions

omg. realy it was 460km/h. thats why i didn't like the jabos campaign before. let's see today is it changes in jabo campaigns.

That's apply for career JaBo missions too. Don't have to spend a same amount of time travelling to target as with JU87 . I was playing Morning Surprise mission in this campaign and we were flying to target area approx 480kmh just above tree line. AI planes keep formation really nice and it was amazing in VR

I can't pass mission 4. Nothing happens after taking down both the fighters and the bomber. I keep going around the point but it never ends ...

Just go home and land if that happens. I believe you can finish successfully.

I cannot launch the campaign, the game just stays on the loading screen, Ive tried to leave it for few minutes, but nothing happens, and when I click my mouse, the game crashes. What did I miss?

 

The very first mission?

 

I'll take a look, the update could have messed something up.

On the new Version (4.501) campaing doesn't start. Can someone help?

Please see the main update thread for instructions on updating missions. You need to resave the folder with missions using the editor tool.

Hello I really would like to try the campaign but after I installed it i see there's no mission descriptions...I only get a "mission description is loading" message. Is it normal?

 

Update: now I also see the first mission doesn't start ...any suggestions? thanks

 

Update2: Ok opening the missions and re-saving them with editor solved everything I think

I resaved the campaign to the last game version and got the first two missions running flawlessly. Especially the early morning bombing run was nice and well done.

Unfortunately I had a problem in the third; after our four planes did taxi to the start position they don't perform the start itself.

I had several attempts, one time the leader started but not the others. I used the autopilot function for testing and it wasn't successful either.

It would be cool to continue this apparently well made campaign.

Unfortunatelly I've had lots of issues with the AI takeoff behavior since the campaign was launched (2017) and I have not found any workarounds. I believe you should be able to progress to the next mission if you take off and land again.

This was an excellent campaign and very enjoyable from start to finish, thank you. The last mission was particularly good fun.

 

Looking forward to your next release and I'm hopeful you will give us another fw190 campaign in the future.

 

All the best,

 

Billy.

There is a Hurricane campaign coming up. It's about 95% done,  just waiting for the AAA truck to be released and also need a few weeks since just had a baby and time is really scarce at the moment.
