GREEK FIRE ~ Spitfire MkVb & MC202v8 Campaign

Recommended Posts

I am in the first series of missions  & have to thank you for including the 202 for at least the first mission- its a plane I like but hardly ever fly and now I kinda have to. I did manage to nail the two 109’s , but only as they were on their way home pilots dreaming of sausage & beer and not paying attention to their “ 6 “.....Bravo!

Jaegermeister,

    I'm enjoying your campaign very much, very immersive.  However, after the last update I noticed that the lead Spit is always in a VVS skin, while the others are in the appropriate African skins.  I've tired to correct this with the mission editor, but with no luck.  Perhaps you could give it a quick look and correct it.  Thanks

I’ll take a look and see If something is out of whack. What mission are you on?

@Falcon41 I have a completed installed version of this campaign on my computer and I do not have that issue. Perhaps there is a graphics setting that was changed when you installed the update?

 

I can tell you how to check in the Mission Editor and see if the skin is still selected if you like. Since the other skins are still visible, you appear to have the right skins installed. Perhaps that one is missing?

 

You could also copy the mission files and send them to me and I will look at it to see if something has changed. It would also help to know what mission it in.

Jaegermeister,

     I went back to the very first mission and the leader's plane was in VVS colors.  Perhaps telling me how to check in the mission editor would be a good first step as the missions themselves appear to run properly, its just that the leaders plane is always in VVS colors.  Incidentally, I've played the entire campaign before the latest update with no problems.  Only after the most recent update did this problem appear for me.

Check to see if you have spitfiremkvb_b skin in your data/graphics/skins/SpitfireMkVb folder

 

If you want to open the file in the Mission Editor, in the Greek Fire campaign folder open 01

scroll out and right click and drag up to the top left corner of the map, or select the double pane view and drag the view window to the top left.over the “Island”

you should see a group MSN to the bottom right of the straight over the water. Right click and ungroup 

move to your left and look for group PLR. Ungroup

move further left and locate the airfield

select Swift 1 and double left click. Under the properties window, you should see the skin in the drop down box about 5 lines down on the left. If it’s there, and you have the skin in your skins folder I am at a loss. I have not been able to duplicate this issue

 

You could just download the file again. I have updated it to work with the last patch and if you reinstall it over the old file, it will not erase your progress.

 

the file currently posted is set up to unzip directly to your IL2 Great Battles root directory

 

let me know how it goes

Jaegermeister,,

     I had a computer problem the other night and had to reload all the campaigns I've collected.  Long story short, I downloaded your campaign and now I'm not having the problem we discussed yesterday.  Thanks for your help and who knows what goes on inside our computers.  Yikes!!!!!!

Greek Fire

Thanks for the campaign!:good: It was very interesting to visit the new theater.

 

I translated this campaign for myself into Russian and made some skins for beauty. Along the way, I learned from related literature a lot about the Mediterranean stage.


In the campaign, I liked the fact that bombers could be attacked with almost impunity. Apparently, their gunners in previous missions glut oneself pervetin and therefore do not react immediately.:crazy:  And it's good that they do not disappear. :acute:I changed the fighters for myself on a five-point G-6.:blush: Perhaps they are less agile, but I planted aces almost everywhere. But still they were able to knock out much less than the bombers. But on a Macchi, fighting the G-4 in the last mission was very difficult. As a result, I did not reach Turkey, but apparently I escaped by boat.:biggrin:

Yeah, it looks like you changed lots of things. Bombs on the Spit, extra ID codes not used at that time by SAAF, etc. Your skins do look nice though.

 

If that’s what works for you, glad you had fun with it. 👍

I did not add bombs to Spitfire. :)


Concerning extra ID codes. I just could not find on the Internet a single photograph or drawing with the aircraft of the 7th SAFF squadron. But the other squadrons for which there is a photo seemed to have the full code. Or I'm wrong?

 

The only thing that I noticed near the end of the campaign is that the South Africans in the identification mark should have a red circle in orange. Is that right?

Great job with the cannon in that case!

 

i found a couple of images of 7 sq. MkVbs from Egypt and Palestine at that time had single letter codes. All the British squadrons were using 3 letter codes by that time, and the SAAF squadron(s) in Italy also had them. As near as I can tell, after the 7th sq. Spitfire Vbs were destroyed or abandoned on Kos, they were re-equipped with Spitfire IXs and moved to Italy with the TJ prefix.

 

i will try to find the references, but they are obscure. I deleted all that stuff when I finished the campaign. There were very few records from that time period, because they didn’t take anything with them when they evacuated the island. There is very little regarding the SAAF in Palestine either.

 

Edit...

Here is one of the 74th Spitfires that flew in from Cyprus to relieve them on Kos

I just took advantage of the game bug.:blush:Yes, I was the first to fire a submarine, but of course Bowfighters destroyed it. And the game counted my victory.

Understood thanks! Then I need to remake my skins.

Halfway through this campaign and I'm really enjoying it :) 

The mission-to-mission narrative flows well and I feel like I'm able to maintain character.

Glad you like it. It was a kind of shoestring mission to begin with , so it made it easier to represent without a large support structure.

"Just" go the campaign's folder, open the 01.eng file, copy and paste inside the 01.fra (for you) file instead of the text in it. Save, and that's it.

If you don't have the .fra file, just create it by copying the .eng and change the name into .fra.

 

Simple but the trick is to be known

Very immersive and well scripted. I'm halfway through the campaign. Having a bit of a problem getting rid of those Bf109 in mission 8, but I will prevail, eventually... 3rd attempt on the way 😊....Kudos to the author.

Glad you are enjoying it. Those German raiders are pesky indeed. I think that mission is the one where I determined it was necessary to get some cannon rounds into the leader as quickly as possible before his katschmareks made Emmenthaller out of my Spitfire. Super aggressive, get the leader, then the others are pretty easy. 

 

I should fly it again one of these days since they have revamped the AI. Unfortunately I would probably want to redo all the mission logic.

Really nice campaign.

 

The only thing is to have russian voices onboard a south african plane... Is there a chance to modify these voices? A script line somewhere we can change by ourselves?

Thanks, glad you like it. There is an English voice mod. Check the mods section. I used it before BoBP was released.

I will check it.

 

I didn't want to change all the voices in the campaigns.

Even if I don't understand German or Russian, I like to have the original language in my headphones. But I have to admit that for this one in particular, just like for the "Achtung Jabos", I found it a little bit annoying to have to refer to the written translation during the flight

I made for myself a modified version of this campaign, which corrects the voices problem. It is only a matter of choosen nationality in the Mission Editor. 

If Jaegermeister agrees, I can post it there.

I’d rather not have another version of my campaign posted, but if that’s what you want to do, I can’t stop you. Changing nationalities involves more than just the planes. 

 

I can update the file. I have been working on other things since BoBP came out. I will post back when I have the DL available. It would be fun to hear the new British voices anyway.

I went through the first mission and converted it this morning. It took me about 3 hours. All the mission goals, triggers and links had to be reset, because they were all set with a coalition. I have removed that, and updated a couple of other things that were sub-standard for how I do things now. If you just change the coalition, I would imagine the mission would not work.

 

I have also changed the Primary Goal to "Take Off" so you will not get stuck not being able to finish the mission. It might take a bit to redo this campaign, but I will keep working on it as I get time. Thanks for reminding me it needs to be updated. It is much better with the British voices.

Sure. I just opened the mission file, and replace every line with Country = 101 by  Country = 102.

 

That worked fine.

Ok, sounds great. Hopefully that addressed the complex triggers, but I don’t actually know. I will look into that on the next mission. Going back through the mission logic was a good exercise anyway. That was a neat little campaign so I think it deserves to be updated. Thanks for posting that.

I agree Jaegermeister, I am just over half way through and loving it. Great story line with plenty of variety. Thanks for putting it together as I mostly do just single player career and campaigns.

Just finished & really enjoyed the change of scene flying with the RAF. in exotic "climes"..There must be a lot of ex-pat Eastern Europeans chaps in my squadron since they insist on speaking in a foreign chit chat on the RT...

Thanks for your efforts designing this scripted Mission!

I'm glad you enjoyed it!

 

I'm working on converting it to English. It was made before the voices and BoBP were released. It is better with a British accent even if they were South African. They were similar at least.

 

I'm about half way through updating it, but I got sidetracked by another project.
