HOW TO SAVE A BROKEN CAREER (automission start failed, mission save error, statsubmitstatfailed)

Recommended Posts

Hi all ....

 

A few weeks back late one night my career pilot was KIA and while closing the game after the death I saved him as dead. He is now listed as Pilot Killed and I really want to get him resurrected as I had spent months on the career.

 

I have tried the date change (prior to and after) as per above however it has had no effect.

 

Can someone advise on what else I should be looking for?

 

Thanks. @Talon_

Had the same issue on 2 campaigns. This solved the problem for me. Both instances of this problem happened after the latest update (3.005).

Now have a new issue.  When I go into my career's none will work, in order to get out of the career screen I must use the Task Manager to end the program.  I will be able to look at this later this evening.

That's exactly what happened to me. The Task Manager is hard work as well because the PC doesn't like it when the game is in Fullscreen Mode as well!! I abandoned that mission and only have one running now and, so far... fingers crossed!! I'll just carry on with this one and see what happens...

Thank you so much, you have saved my career which I was about 40% into the realistic version before the bug showed up. I tried what you suggested as well, seeing if I could skip the stuck mission by assigning it to another pilot but it just crashed to the main screen. i was stuck on the last mission I flew and couldn't get past it, I thought all was lost, all that toil and trouble, the days and days of recording and editing all for nothing. But I was put onto your solution, followed your steps and now I have just pushed the career 2 days forward :) Brilliant, just BRILLIANT !! Thank you again and again 👍🍺

With this tool, is it possible to work around a completed career? Ive just completed a career on Stalingrad that I've played since Moscow. I can't prolong to Kuban because of a bug of some sort. I get a grey blank screen when i try to prolong and i really want to keep this career going in battle of Kuban. I tried this tool to set the date back to before the last day of the unit at Stalingrad. That worked fine but the campaign is still shown as completed and is just still moving to 1943.02.02... Is there a way to delete "battle completed" and try to get back a few days before the last day. I want to try to transfer to another unit and prolong from that unit whereas i am in jg 51 with collector plane and i dont know why but i think that might have something to do with it:S...

@Talon_ Thanks for saving another career mate ! Your trick did just fine.

 

It's a real shame this bug is still going on nearly a year after 3.0 release, and that support is still unable to help.

Ok, ya he encontrado la solución: 

 

Al principio abrí el archivo con el programa que comenta en el foro para recuperar el piloto muerto. Pero primero lo devolvió hace un día y nada, abrió el SIM y le dio para comenzar la Carrera, y sí, el día había cambiado pero el piloto aún estaba muerto. Volví a leer el hilo, pero a nadie se le ocurrió el "proceso correcto". El procedimiento es el siguiente:

Abre el programa de la base de datos y arrastra el archivo en cuestión y verá los datos de las CARRERAS, mire cuidadosamente la que generalmente coincide con las fechas de la campaña para el año y el mes, y luego no solo tiene que cambiar la Fecha pero también hay que cambiar el estado del piloto. Observe que el piloto muerto tiene en la columna de estado un número diferente al de la otra CARRERA, creo que el muerto es 1 o 2 depende de si está MUERTO o CAPTURADO, pero en las razas en las que está vivo tiene "0" cero (en el FILTRO ESTATAL "0") Entonces, primero cambie la fecha uno, dos o tres días, estará haciendo pruebas hasta que el piloto ese día no resultó herido. Luego, en la columna de estado, pones un "0" cero como en las otras razas, eso significa que estás vivo. Adjunto una captura donde parece que la puse. Lo que hice fue retrasarlo unos 5 días para estar seguro de que estaba vivo y sin ser herido o capturado depende de cómo esté tu piloto. Y ZASAS !!! ¡¡Arreglado!! Ahora solo tengo que volar nuevamente esos cinco días y he recuperado la CAMPAÑA o la Carrera.


Adjunto una captura de pantalla en la que puede ver las tres carreras que tengo y las ubiqué por fecha: mes, año y año 1942 porque ya había pasado un año volando desde 1941. Recuerde, no solo cambie el día (dé unos días de usted mató o usted fue capturado) También tiene que poner en el cuadro (cambiar y guardar todo antes de que se cierre el programa de la base de datos) TIENE QUE PONER UN "0" que corresponde a su LIVE 1, creo que corresponde a capturado y 2 a MUERTO Me tomó mucho tiempo hasta que encontré la falla o la solución.
 

Ah! Y no da ningún error.


Sigue volando tu CARRERA !!! 😎


Tengo que agradecer a SYN_Haashashin , que me ha ayudado mucho para reactivar mi piloto. MUCHAS GRACIAS A TODOS


un saludo  😉

 

PD: Me debes unas cuantas cervezas, jajaja ...

Hello everyone, yesterday I was the victim of the mistake of almost everyone here.

I've followed in the footsteps of  1/JSpan_Guerrero 

 

-and I've managed to keep my pilot alive, but, I keep all my medals, I keep my rank, but I can't fly any mission, because it's as if I already knew everything that's been gone day after day, that is, when the day of my death comes , even if I'm still alive, and i'm in "service" I'm dead for the squadron and I'm not assigned any flights.

 
please tell me that I am doing something wrong and that you have a solution. save the initial cp.db file so that you had no problems and could work with it as many times as you want
 
😥

Hola a todos, ayer fui víctima del error de casi todos aquí.

He seguido los pasos de 1 / JSpan_Guerrero   

 

-y logré mantener vivo a mi piloto, pero mantengo todas mis medallas, mantengo mi rango, pero no puedo volar ninguna misión, porque es como si ya supiera todo lo que se ha ido día tras día, eso es decir, cuando llegue el día de mi muerte, incluso si todavía estoy vivo, y estoy en "servicio", estoy muerto para el escuadrón y no me han asignado ningún vuelo.

 
dígame que estoy haciendo algo mal y que tiene una solución. guarde el archivo cp.db inicial para que no tenga problemas y pueda trabajar con él tantas veces como desee
 
😥
 

 

 

Como ya te he comentado por el privado. Ya no se puede. Creo que ya no hay forma de rectificar la base de datos alojada en su servidor. 🙄 Habrán detectado cambios en remoto en sus servidores y lo habrán tapado, ya en el fondo es un boquete de seguridad en sus bases de datos.

Many thanks but unfortunately this workaround didn't work well for me.
My pilot's Bodenplatte career got corrupted Oct 16. After I had patched the date to Oct 17, I  was able to proceed to Oct 17 and then (via "next day") had been warped to Dec 18 (Battle of the Bulge timeframe) to a different location with different planes (Bf 109 K). Also the following 3-4 days my pilot hadn't been asigned to any mission. I was able to reproduce this behaviour.

Hi jetsimace

 

As I have commented to III/JG52_Lothar29, these changes can no longer be made in the records of the databases no longer works, since those changes were made in the databases of servers owned by IL-2

 

I'm sorry

We see, i have discovered how to live the Pilot

The mode is as follows, with the program that we have downloaded, and following the instructions of @1/JSpan_Guerrero of this link.

 

the only important thing are the following two things.

 

The first is to throw back in time, if they killed you on the 15th, in the program put that you start on the 9th.

and the second is the most important:

 

-Watch the video that I created for you

 

Spoiler

 

 

 @jetsimace Suscribe to my Channel if it works for you. hehehehe 😁

sorry for my English

Thanks for your hints guys!
Unfortunately it didn't work for me: I had a career I couldn't load any more (had to terminate il2.exe when trying to load this specific career), but my pilot was still alive (state=0).
"CurrentDate" of my pilot's career is 1944.10.16 while this pilot's "stateDate" is 1944.10.15. When setting both values to 1944.10.14 I am able to load the career and after proceeeding from 1944.10.14 to 1944.10.15 two new missions (in addition to the ones I had already flewn on 1944.10.15) have been created automatically - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I flew both missions but when proceeding to the next day (1944.10.16) I got warped to Dec 16 (Battle of the Bulge while my squadron was moved to another airfield) and from then on I have not been able to proceed to next day with an error message/pop up window "error proceeding to next day".


Also sometimes I had issues unpausing the mission at start as the "P" key has not been recognized properly. "Esc" worked fine in IL2 but my PC had somehow frozen (I couldn't switch to any other application and/or window), so I hat to reboot using Task Manager.

hello, if I could add a small and very basic suggestion to this very useful topic .....when you have a very long career (like me through BOM,BOS and BOK after about 300 hours of combat mission) You won't definitely loose your progress as happen to me after an update of windows and following problem on IL-2 launch. You just have to back up your cp file every few days of flying ( it could be better with a script instruction that do this automatically for you) .

in an unfortunate case of game reinstallation all you have to do is just  to copy your backupped cp file instead of the original blank cp file....this worked for me and I only lost my commanding officer spec but it isn't a big issue, isn't it?

I did'nt yet verify if this works in case of pilot died or captured too...

Hope this helps

good flights

Hi gerriaz,

 

When you lose your life or are captured after hundreds of missions it is very frustrating to have to start again from scratch. Yes I also keep a backup copy of the CAREER folder. Although if there have been several updates to the IL-2 it may not work well if they have touched the code of the career part of the pilot.

Hola a todos.

Además de las modificaciones aportadas en este hilo, solo añadir que en mi caso para la "reactivación de una carrera" hube de modificar también en el mismo fichero "cp.db" en la tabla "pilot" la fecha y estado del piloto muerto.

Para localizar la fila (de las muchas que puede haber) y que hay que modificar, ordena por "Description" (solo los activos tienen datos en esa casilla) y busca el nombre de tu piloto.

Busca las columnas "stateDate" y "status" y modifícalas a la fecha anterior y a "0" tal y como se debería haber hecho también en la tabla "career" y que se ha comentado antes.

Un saludo.

 

Hi, everybody.

In addition to the changes made in this thread, I would like to add that in my case for the "reactivation of a career" I had to modify also in the same file "cp.db" in the table "pilot" the date and status of the dead driver.

To locate the row (of the many that can exist) that needs to be modified, order by "Description" (only the active ones have data in that box) and look for the name of your driver.

Look for the columns "stateDate" and "status" and modify them to the previous date and to "0" as it should have been done also in the table "career" and that has been commented before.

Greetings.

Yero, thank you very much for your contribution.

 

The truth is that it is better not to fly like Iron Man ... and seeing how difficult it is to recover a pilot, you have to think very carefully before hitting the "end mission" button without first checking if at the end of the mission you were alive and within your territory, or border (Captured) if you have had to jump or land with your belly on the ground. I look at it two or three times on the tour screen, and only if I am very sure do I finish the mission. If I am not sure if I fell near the border, I will restart it.

Since I have four campaigns at the same time, when I have to restart a mission, I fly in a different campaign and that mission failed and restarted I do not repeat it a second time. I leave it for another day.

 

Greetings to all

I looked at my other pilot and I changed STATE to 0 in both tabs, CAREER and PILOT. It worked. The pilot was MIA but made it to the roster the following day! :yahoo:

 

It worked, thanks.

 

But it's very sad we have to do this when the game meshs it up, and you don't wanna replay a long mission you consider yo did correctly

 

I wonder what % of users will be able to do this

I had a strange incident I'll recount here.

 

I had a career I'd carried over from Moscow, into Stalingrad (with the intention of going on to Kuban and Bodenplatte). Towards the end of Stalingrad, I had the option of ending the career and moving on to Kuban, but I decided to transfer to the Ring of Death just for... well, 'fun' might not apply in that instance, but you get my point. I assumed the missions would be endless bomber and ground attack plane intercepts (which I like), but instead it was missions I decidedly do not like. I figured rather than endure the waiting of sending my wingmen on every mission until the campaign ended, I'd just quit, delete the old career file, and copy my backup (which was made the same day) into the proper Sturmovik folder.

 

I did so, and it caused errors on every career I had. Eventually, after trying various ineffectual fixes, I did the database editing bit and moved the day forward. This worked for a few days, until the error popped up again, and I bypassed it once again. Then I moved on to Kuban, and now everything seems fine.

 

So on one hand, I'm disappointed that simply backing up my career file wasn't as useful and straightforward as it should be; but I was able to get around it anyway, thanks to this thread.

maybe you've just to open cp file and modify the last date of career file with DB Browser to one day forward. hope this helps
