"Allmost" a SP campaign for a wingman (Bf-109F-2)

Recommended Posts


campaign.jpg.91131533c720ce8c24dc3ad0deaf38e9.jpg

"Allmost" is another handmade SP campaign for Bf-109 pilot in BoM.

It's a "kachmarek" campaign which means most of the time you fly as #2. So, to keep formation with the leader, and keep an eye on his tail will be your main task and entertaiment.

Events take place at October 1941 during "Typhoon" operation. Player acts as a pilot of 12./JG51. He started good enought at June, shooting down a TB-3 soviet bomber at 27th of June. But then he was wounded and get back in squadron only couple days before the offensive.

Campagn is not hardcore historic stuff. Though, sorties are about actuall length (geography is one of the most accurate things in the campagn) and usually take up to 40 minutes to finish.

Tested at EXPERT mode.

Download "Allmost" campaign.

Unzip, put in "Campagn" folder, enjoy.

Actually, it comes with custom skins.  
Player should choose .../skins/CUSTOM/Bf109F2_Y2.dds  to fly in the custom skin "Yellow-2".

Mission 1 failed!

I shot down the enemies and landed at the airfield, both planes alive.

Do I need to land last?

 

Loved this first mission BTW.

I was surprised by the ending of the first mission. Looking forward to the rest of the campaign. Thanks for your hard work.

Well. First mission is sort of exception: in another missions it is usually enough just to land or even crash. In 1st mission you should REPORT (just land AFTER A COMMAND TO LAND and you'll report automatcly). The trick is you should land at proper field, cause your leader initially makes a mistake.
So, pay attention: to fulfill the task player should land at FROLOVO (not Zenino!).
You'll see a flare, landfires marking  "landing T", even a surchlight drops a beam of light at strip... After landing player may notice a flare signal ahead, near some buildings (dinning room hopefully), a horch moves there to meet player after sortie and a pleasant pop music flows... That's the proper ending of first mission.

For the help, in this mission, player can notice a "pointer icon" on the map AFTER leader makes his mistake.
So, even if leader down this icon (yellow pointer... arrow... dunno how to name this) can help get to the base.

I just downloaded this campaign and passed the first mission on my second try. (I lost my leader and direction at the first time.) As usual, really interesting and dramatic mission design. (And I love the hand-painted illustration of the mission briefing.) Thank you for the fun, samson. :salute:

BTW, this campaign should be at 1941, right? The mission briefing says it's "1942".  :biggrin:

You see... I just get bored without mistakes))) 
Actually I tried to aim day in day in terms of calendar accuracy concerning weather, and "tactical scenario".
Sure it is 1941.

Attention gentlemen!
I've been reported about my fault with 1st mission getting accomplished.
Here is an msnbin file for 1st mission. Please swith the file with exact name in Allmost folder with this one (link prev.)
When you start 1st mission again iy will be automaticly succesfull within 10 sec after mission begins.
Sorry for that.

Even without the fix, that first mission (the only one I've flown) is just great, Samson. Really atmospheric - and some beautiful ideas I've looked at in the ME, and - erm... shall we say, they'll be an inspiration! ;) (Actually, without joking, the way you use the proximity trigger is just brilliant!)

 

Edit: I also love the pictures for the missions. I thought my own sepia screenshots I want to use for my own scripted campaign were nice, but yours - works of art!

Hi Muscat,

 

Just to make sure, I suppose you copied 01.eng to 01.spa and so on, then replaced the text?

 

If you did that correctly, then the problem is probably the cache. You can try to delete the ctreecache.spa in your IL-2/data directory, otherwise it caches a previous version of the text and you don't see the new one. Most often you don't even have to restart IL-2, just get back to the main menu, switch to the Explorer and delete the file, then select the campaign and the mission again. :)

Samson,

 

Great campaign so far, very fun!

 

I have a few issues though, I'm hidding them below to avoid any spoiler :)

 

Spoiler

3rd mission: I was killed by ground AA when attacking them (instant kill, like a headshot), but the mission was taken as successful anyway, it should have failed instead

4th middion: the leader accelerates and slows down constantly, he definitely doesn't do a circuit but turns around all the time :/ It's quite feasible though

5th mission: same problem but much, much worse

- After take-off it keeps climbing at more than 400 km/h, I cannot keep up even at combat power, my oil is overheating. Normally climbing is done at a more steady pace because the engine heats up.

- The leader does two 360 during the climb, during which it suddenly slows down at 320 km/h, so I tend to overshoot. As soon as it resumes its climb ("move on"), it accelerates again like a madman at 400 km/h, and so on.

- One the leader is at altitude (3 km), it suddenly slows down again to 320 km/h, and accelerates sometimes at 400 km/h near waypoints.

It's simply impossible to keep up with that, it's as if the leader was trying to lose the wingman and the other rotte.

- Once the enemy aircraft are spotted, the leader accelerates again from a very slow 320 km/h to more than 400 and it's not possible to keep up again (I suppose AI doesn't have engine limitations). I must keep in formation but if I do so, I get shot down because the AI leader does bad manoeuvres and exposes himself to the enemy. :unsure:

 

I don't know how far it is possible to control that, I know that the Bf-109 AI is currently broken when it comes to climbing and keeping a constant speed (and keeping in formation, strafing, and ...), but I suppose it's possible to set a more acceptable speed for the first waypoints?

Thanx for such a ditailed review)
Well, want can I say, everything you told about 5th mission isn't a surprise for me. That is AI acts, as I did observe (I may be wrong and would be gracefull for advice or something). To say, Falce 1 recieved a signal to move to another waypoint. And the "gradient"  of altitude is about 1000 m. And despite the speed mentioned at this aimed waypoint leader would burn engine climbing up to the alltidude of next waypoint as fast as  he could no matter how FAR actually this waypoint is. And then at THE alltidude he would break down to the speed mentioned at WP properties. I might put 320 km per hour for the sake of player) ))

and what about 3rd mission... I put "mission accomplished" result even if crashed but not die. So that's may be the case.

Ah well, that's what I suspected. Let's hope they fix that AI.

Hi Samson,

 

thank you for your great work - I just started your campaign (Mission 1 & 2) and it's really good so far!

I like the story line and I'm eager to keep on. Thanks again.

samson, wow, thank you so much! A credible campaign! In one breath.:clapping: I tried to stretch the fun, so that more than two missions a day do not pass.

 

Very encouraging in the title "part 1".:rolleyes: Do not stop please.

Some of the missions in the campaign are almost whimsical, totally unexpected and make a nice change. For instance, I put the fire out first go, only to find out it was the wrong one!

Very enjoyable, well done

Nice work!!

First mission was bit of a surprise. Really looked good. Two problems:

1.Campaign no longer works since new BOS upgrades that  just came out this week. When I select Almost Campaign  system tales me make to Main Screen.

2. Not campaign problem really but nearing end of mission ( after shooting down two Ratas I was hit with that DX Renderer message and CTD. Time to get new computer.

Thanks samson first mission worked just fine.  However in the second mission as I was lining up for a shot my guns nor cannons would fire.  In single play and another scripted campaign I have no problems firing guns or cannons. :huh:

Hallo,

is anyone there who has finished the 6. mission, and can tell me what secret it has?

I flew over the clouds, I flew under the clouds, I flew north and south a big circle and a small circle. I followed the order to come return , and I ignored it. Nothing helpes, always I got the message "mission not successful"

In general I fly in VR and I am overwhelmed by the feeling of flight, as well as by the quality of the surprising good campaigns.

I would be grateful for getting help, to finish this campaign.

Without revealing too much,

- did you understand you had to put a fire out? (sorry for the question, it's probably not obvious to everybody)

- have you tried and succeeded but have to do it over and over again? Usually there is an obvious one, but once you extinguish it, it says it's not the fire to put out

- take the time to overfly the area and find out the correct fire, it's not too hard to spot

- pay attention to those flares
