PWCG 6.3.0 Released - BP is on the Rhine Map!

Recommended Posts

Most awesome Pat!

 

I will have to get started on a new Kuban Campaign in the Spitfire now. Have been having a blast in my Stalingrad campaign with the Yak-1.

 

Thanks so much for all you do with this great program!

Hey guys, dumb question for ya:

 

I see PWCG 3.0 has the same file name as my existing PWCG 2.1.2 install.

I don't want to get rid of my existing install, as I am well into a BoS Campaign, and would like to run both. 

So can I just drop this 3.0 version into it's own folder, like PWCG 3.0 and have it run ok?

 

Thanks for any tips,

I thought I would go ahead and give this a try, apparently I can not do this I get a message that PWCG is installed to the wrong directory. 

So I guess I will need to get rid of my 2.1.2 version before running this one. Don't think I have too much longer to go in my current campaign, may try and get through it first.

 

I am very much looking forward to a Spit campaign in Kuban though.

Does this version work for RoF also?

 

3.0 was also released for RoF.  Code is the same but data and startup parameters are different, so you will have to download PWCG for RoF separately (see RoF forum)

I left the old folder PWCGCampaign unchanged and installed 3.0 into PWCGCampaign3, and it worked fine for me.

Thanks Pat,

 

just started a Spitfire campaign, 3 missions in and no problems so far, I'd forgotten how much I love this.

 

Thanks a million!

 

Cheers.

Yes.  Also added the Gold Cross as an award between IC1 and KC.

I just gave that a try using the same name, and still getting that error message about it being installed to wrong directory.

@dburne

Strange. Just to make it clear, I have

 

D:\Games\BOS\PWCGCampaign

D:\Games\BOS\PWCGCampaign3

 

and both work correctly when I double-click the respective exe files.

 

Perhaps you try to launch it with a desktop icon? If yes, check filename and working directory there.

Yep, that is exactly pretty much the same path except my games are on E:

I install here:

E:\Games\BOS\PWCGCampaign3

 

And get error message when I launch PWCG "installed to wrong directory".

Does the old version work? Theoretically it's unchanged, so it should.

Yep I fly 2.1.2 pretty much daily, flew 3 missions today no issue.

 

I am guessing if I removed 2.1.2 and put 3.0 in it's place, I would probably not get that error message regarding wrong directory. Just would like to finish my current campaign first. Would have been nice if I could run both concurrently but at least for me not looking like I will be able to.

Maybe your previous installation of 3.0 is screwed or incomplete. Remove the content of the new PWCGCampaign3 folder and re-copy all the files from the ZIP archive to there. You should see something like this. Then give it another try by double-clicking the exe in the new folder.

Woohoo, thank you so much that did it!!

 

Edit: This is the only thing showing up in my error log:

 

"Set product to BoS"
 
Do others get that?

I guess I am going to be full of dumb questions.

 

Trying to set up a campaign for Kuban flying the Spit.

 

So I go in to campaign creation, set the date to 1-1-43 , and go looking at all the squadrons available info and I be danged if I can find any flying the Spitfire. I keep scrolling and looking at all the squadrons to no avail. 

And how do I know which map it is giving me?

 

I just want a campaign over Kuban flying Spitfires.

 

It has been a while since I created my campaign in 2.1.2 flying the Yak-1 over Stalingrad,  can't recall how I managed to do that one.

When you first run PWCG select the PWCG Information tab. On the right there are some selections you can make as far as map, role, and map details. Select Kuban, fighter, and I check all the remaining options. Click finished when done. Now click Create Campaign and set the date for 1/3/43, for squadron scroll down to the bottom and select 57th Guards. This should give you the Spit on the Kuban map. At least that's the best I could figure out.

You don't really need to do that (though it's cool if you really can do that).  I think the OP's problem was probably either that he was starting too early (not sure if Kuban/Spit is available as early as Jan '43) or just not looking far enough down on the list -  I just tried starting a VVS fighter campaign in March '43 and found the Spit squadron all the way at the bottom of the list, without messing with the PWCG info screen at all.

Released! And i was going to give my feedback regarding alpha version hehe.

Btw i didn't encounter any isuee.

Weather conditions work perfect, mission endings too, even AI is placed well so it can use it's advantages (190) and be challenging,missions are fun and engageing.

One patrol mission there were no bandits so immersion is great too.

Thank you Patrick!

Yes, I mistakenly thought that is where you selected the map, but it appears that the map used is based on what squadron you select, and the date.

Much thanks! I will give that a try later on today.

 

So then not really an easy way to see what map is going to be used? 

 

Edit: Just created the Spit campaign, yes I had to choose March '43 and then scroll all the way to the bottom.

Thanks again!

Yes thanks a lot for that super tool. It's not exactly the right place but I ask the question anyway if anybody can answer...the giro of my spit stays sometimes stuck even if i move the plane heading for another direction...? Do I have to configure something into the game or is it a bug. I know that in COD for instance the player has to set the giro to north before taking off. Thanks in advance for answers.

Great, thanks Patrick! :thank_you: And nice, that you are moving to JSON. This will come in handy when I go back to creating those Russian Aces. (I have to solve the Chir-Front problem first, though)

Patrick, a quick heads up. PWCG 3.0 for ROF will not generate any mission. It seems like all of the GUI is working and the link between ROF & PWCG3.0 game interface is working fine also.

Just No Joy when you click the Create Mission button. There are 2 or 3 Error reports 7zipped up and waiting on the ROF Forums. Thanks for all that you do Sir.

Yeah - I suggested to Pat in the alpha/beta test feedback that it would be nice to have some sort of indicator/selection to either allow you to select the map up front or at least to see what map each potential squadron choice would be on as you choose your unit during campaign creation, but I'm sure he didn't have time to deal with that given how quickly he got 3.0 released.  Hopefully, it's something he can consider for inclusion in a future update.

Glad you suggested it, certainly would be nice to know that detail up front during the campaign creation.
