Get PWCG Here ...

Recommended Posts

Download PWCG here

 

As newer versions become available I will update this link.  At the moment 2.1.2 is the latest version.  Version 3.0 is under development.

 

Installation

It's a Java program so you have to have Java installed - latest version always works.

The download is a zip file.  Download into your BoX install directory.

Unzip the file into your BoX install directory.

PWCG will install into a folder called PWCGCampaign

Enter the PWCGCampaign folder and run PWCG.exe

 

First Run - Creating Your First Campaign

After the program starts for the first time everything is disabled except Planes Owned - press Planes Owned and tell PWCG which planes you own.

Once you do this the other buttons are enabled.

Create a campaign (New Campaign).

First select the service that you will fly for.

After that there is a step by step work flow ... do each step and then the Create Campaign button 

 

Configure BoX for PWCG

Ensure that mission logs are enabled

- BoX/Data/setup.cfg

-     mission_text_log = 1

 

Playing the Campaign

Press mission to create a mission.

Follow the flow through accept mission.

Fly the mission - it will be under the BoX Missions section

- NOT CAMPAIGN (BoX has no idea that a PWCG mission is part of a campaign)

Return to PWCG 

Press Combat Report

Claim your air to air victories

- You will not be credited with victories you do not claim

- Unless you really want to, do not over claim

Proceed through the debrief.

Repeat until you are dead or the war is over

Hi Pat, wished I'd seen this earlier. Once I found right link got things running in my steam version of BoS.

 

Only a couple missions in so far early Moscow in an Il2, ground set high and air medium. Nice.

 

It is nice to be rookie in a flight group. Flight seemed to engage ground target so ai working ok. We were intercepted by 109E7 's.

 

Fun and aa that unlike online mp settings isn't a dozen 38mm all with guided targeting.

 

Thanks, can't wait to fly some more missions.

 

GUI is a bit wierd to navigate but cn be learned.

Knowing your great contributions to RISE OF FLIGHT, I will check this out.

Thank you for making it, Patrick!  Sent the 5 Dollars - it's a bargain!

 

Can anyone tell me, if it is possible - like it was in RoF for me - to be an online host for three friends,

without making it a public server for eveyone to enter?

Singel player is hellish on my 10 year old PC , Now I bought one that should last as long as my old . But it always when it is new they are best.

I probably buy  the new HTC Vive Pro when it arrives too, they say it got much improved resolution

Never before someone posted his opinion that clear. Mastiff you clearly are a master of written word (or numbers in that case).

Actually this is Pat's "official" thread for PWCG 4.

Perhaps they should make it a sticky...

"pwcg.core.exception.PWCGException: Name must be English characters"
 

The game will blow up if you don't use English characters in an eng file. Did you not get a popup stating this was the issue?  If not I'll work on exposing this error as soon as you are entering data.
