Description of the Campaign:

 

Hello pilots, greetings from Chile!

(Note: I used google translator)

 

Campaign information:

  • Name: Lost Hope
  • Missions: 19
  • Plane: Me BF 109G2 and the BF109 E7 (last mission)
  • Map: Stalingrad
  • No special skins

 

Summary:

 

     You will be the pilot Walter who is transferred to the eastern front during the summer of 1942. It would be his experiences in the conflict that ends with the fall of the VI army and its capture in Stalingrad. It is not 100% historical, but I have based on some historical background to give life to each mission.

 

I try to show the daily experiences of the pilots, not always the mission will be a lot of action, but the idea is to give an interesting touch for those who are starting in this game: Follow instructions, be part of squadrons, escort, etc. Some missions are short, other more time to complete.

 

Some objectives are achieved by landing and others by following certain instructions. It is important to read each mission before you fly it.

 

Any issue please report it in this thread and I will try to solve it as quickly as possible.

 

I hope you enjoy it!

Downloaded it , placed under campaigns folder and it does not shows in the game.

Did you place it in >data>campaigns or into the campaign folder?  Must be in data>campaign folder.  Just flew my first mission and ops got shot up, mission failure :wacko:

Hi motoadve:

 

When you unzip LH, you will have a unzipped LH folder.  And when you clic this folder, you will have other LH folder. Copy this folder into Campaigns folder. So, the route will be "Campaigns/LH"

And not like this: Campaigns/LH/LH

 

Salute!

You need ti unzip the .rar file

Hi Taxman:

I have corrected an issue from mission 12 onwards. The file ".list" is different from that mission onwards and maybe that could have a problem. Anyway, I have uploaded the mission again to download. If you don´t want to download it again and return the campaign to the beginning, and you know how to use the Mission Editor,
you can open each mission from 12 to 19 and re-record each one again ("save", not "save as").
 
Salute!

31-01-2018: Corrected issue: corrected "list" file. It originated by changing the original name Lost Hope to LH and some list files had the old name Lost Hope. the issue start from mision 12 to 19.

Upload and corrected the download link.

Nice stuff ....

 

First mission, shot one, but was shot down afterwards. Replaid it , shot two more and was hit in the engine and had to leave my budies, but got time to reach my destination with fuel tank nearing 0. Mission succesful. Niiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

 

Good job ! Keep on like that !

Hello Walter

 

This is Madcop calling for help.

 

What are we suppose to do in mission 6 "Advance to the Volga -North". I did everything that was instructed, Rejoin with LOOT squad, protected the Ju and Me , shot down two fighters, ran out of ammo , flew back to Pitomnik, landed and parked my Aircraft, but no message from the tower prior to landing and no message like "You have landed.".

 

Exit the mission and received a Mission failed , but still with two victories. Flew it again, did the same , went back to Pitomnik and en route rejoined with LOOT and flew forever in circle from Airfield to airfield in the Pitomnik area. Running nearly out of fuel I landed back in Pitomnik while the others stayed aloft wandering seemingly forever between airfields.

 

Exited the mission , and this time no message of Fail or Accomplished. Moreover my number of victories had gone backwards.!

 

I can't go any further as long as I can't manage this mission. 

 

Any help welcome.

 

Thanks a lot.

 

Madcop.

Hi Madcop:

 

Greetings, it's strange because that mission has "landed successfully" when you land and stop the plane, that is, the objetive is achieved when land (object stationary and alive).
Mission 6 was tested, take off and land immediately and result: "landed successfully" - Mission OK.
Tested to land on the other track and the same result.
So:
1) Take off and land to see what happens
2) If it does not give "landed successfully" I imagine that you would have to download the campaign again. And the problem could be that when I uploaded the campaign, a day later I corrected some issues and upload the campaign again. But those corrections were not from mission 6 so I guess it should not be for that thing.
 
Let me know,
Salute!

O.K. Did what you told me. Took of , made a circuit or two and landed. No message ever. Exit the mission. RESULT . Mission Failed . Awards 1 Victory less again ( 11 instead or 12 ! ).

 

Actually I am loosing 1 Victory in my Awards each time I receive a "Mission Failed !"

 

Shall I re download the Campaign ?

Hi Madcop:

 

Downloading again is a solution I think, but it's strange because I have not had that problem (I'm already on mission 13) and nobody has reported that problem.When I have some problems that I do not know the reason why, I perform a reset of the cache referring to this campaign (or the one that has a problem that I can not solve).

In fact, for this campaign I had to do it because for more than I tried, the missions were not placed in order.

 

Or you can also do the following (in both you will have to start from 0 again)

Make a copy of this campaign folder (LH) and save it in your desktop for example, or somewhere other place. Then remove my campaign from the game folder campaigns and restart the game. Open the scripted campaigns and now this campaign will not be available. Then leave the game. Put the folder of my campaign back into the "campaigns" folder and start the game again, opening after starting scripted campaigns again. Now it will be again.

 

I hope it can be solved

Salute!

Having a lot of fun with this as I work through the campaign... Shot down two Ivans yesterday over an airfield that was quite literally a 'crowded sky'.

This is a rare event for me as I'm lucky if I manage to get even one!

Keep up the good work!

Thanks Trooper, question, at what level of the campaign are you?

Mission 5, plus, I got a little mixed up... it wasn't over an airfield, it was a factory complex, lol!

 

Oh, on mission 4, after a hectic dogfight over that hill, two Ivans followed the group on withdrawal, all the way back to the home airfield.

over the airfield, all the E-7's and remaining Stuka's  simply went into their circling and landing routine and totally ignored the Yak's that were attacking them... their was no flak or airfield defence either to protect them in the landing pattern... it kind of spoilt the immersion factor somewhat :(

Thank you, there is a pilot who has an issue on mission 6 (Advance to the volga (north), I have checked it and no problem. Please let me know how you are doing with that mission when you reach it

Salute!

Hi Trooper,

 

Now I have seen it, you're right.

I also noticed that after uploading the campaign in second time. I'm collecting observations from pilots and then later correct those details in a next update. Thank you very much!

Hi Walter,,

 

GOOD NEWS.

 

After a last try before moving to reinstal, I just took off and landed after one circuit and I received " Mission accomplished". Didn't do anything special ! Very Strange.

 

So proceeded to the following stage 7 "The Ambush" and all went O.K. My score is growing again !

 

I really like the atmosphere of your missions. I really had to laugh in mission 4 or 5 when a car that was riding in front of my Aircraft, turned right and collided with a hut;

 

The driver got out of the car and ran just in front of my propeller ... I couldn't stop and I didn't saw the horrible result.

 

Don't know whether this was written in your scenario, but anyway, result garanted !

Walter... just flown mission 5.

Watched the Ju 88 take out the pontoon area, then moved to assist the other Ju 88's hammer the patrol boat area, whilst I was there I knocked down a lagg 3 that was giving them grief.

I then responded to the army call for help and shot an IL 2 to bits and as I was short on ammo I returned home.

I was told I had landed successfully, I had two registered and confirmed kills, yet was then told that I had failed the mission!!! 

I'm kind of deflated right now, I expected an Iron Cross or something, lol!

Hi Trooper:

 

Thank you for your comments. That mission is achieved by shotdown all the IL2s (independent if it's you or the 109 AI). A solution would be wait for the others to shot them down if you don´t  have bullets. Unfortunately, it is difficult to be in the place of another pilot. As I knew how the objective was achieved, I did a test knowing what the objective was. I have noted your comment  and will surely change the objective in this mission since if this goal is achieved almost at the end, it is likely that it may not happen if something happens like running out of bullets. (google translate)

It will be in an update that I will do it soon

 

Salute!

Hi!

It sounds funny, but I assure you that I have not programmed it that way. Sometimes the behavior of the AI is unpredictable. I do not remember if I deleted it or not, but in some mission an auto AI (Horch) stops following a route and collides with a dugout and stays at 90 degrees. Then it explodes

What is needed Walter, is the ability for the user to simply 'tick' a box in the options menu, that allows the campaign to progress as long as you land alive in your own lines (as per the old IL2)...
