PWCG for Flying Circus


Recommended Posts

Hello all! Has there been any update on this of late? I'm not much into multiplayer, and am really craving that campaign experience from RoF

 

PWCG for FC has been available for quite some time now:

http://www.pwcampaignmanager.com/pwcgbos/web/PWCGBoS.php

 

I usually post updates in the PWCG section.  PWCG is a single code base so the vast majority of changes impact both GB and FC.  Latest update, 11.4.1, was posted a few minutes ago.

 Pat please fix your campaign generator for FC, I can not start any campaign while in BoS this is no problem. After a couple of " next steps" no "create Campaign"  will being lighted up.  I'm using the last version.

Hi Pat,

I've encountered an error in the first mission of my campaign with Esc 103 in march 1918.

In my mission, I've shot down 2 Albatros DVa.

When I click on "submit report" after claiming the 2 victories I've got an error message.

I send you the 2 files in the ErrorReport folder.

Thank you again for your campaign generator.

Best regards,

Nicolas

Hi Pat

 

Great work with this, really makes the game.

 

I have been running a few missions with the SE5a with a few friends but when I claim kills they are not being awarded. In the AAR, it says 'killed by a vehicle' rather than the user being credited. If anyone knows what I have done wrong, I'd be really grateful for some assistance. Running latest version.

It's a four step process.  You are on step 1

1. Mission briefing

2. Press Briefing Map to go to the briefing map.  Here you can drag and drop waypoints to change the route.

3. Press Waypoint Editor to go to the waypoint editor.  Here you can change waypoint altitude.

4. Press Pilot selection to go to the pilot selection screen.  Here you can change pilots and payload.

From the pilot edit screen press Accept Mission to write the mission file.

 

After you have written the mission start the game and go to the missions section (Not the Campaign section).  Go to the PWCG folder.  Your mission will be in there.

 

press Scrub Mission at any point to abandon this mission.  You can then generate a new one.

Install:

The cleanest way is:

Back up your User directory under PWCG.  This is where your campaigns and config changes are stored.

- PWCGFC\User

Delete everything except your User directory

Install PWCG

 

Skins:

I put up TheDude & companies latest skin pack.  FYI: I do not alter older skin packs, so no need to download them again.  I handle changes by adding new skin packs.

 

There are some Dolphin configs that are not out there yet but will be in PWCG 11.4.1 - probably this weekend.

Appreciate your reply regarding installing a new version of PWCG. There is indeed, a USER file within PWCGFC, but can't find a user file within PWCGBOS. How does one goes about uninstalling an older version and then reinstalling a newer version of PWCG for BOS?

 

Must be a pretty old version of PWCG for BoS.  If true - first back up your campaign directory.  if it is an old version that will be in PWCGBoS\Campaigns

 

Then install the new version over the old.

Finally, run PWCG.  It should rearrange your old install to work with the latest version.

 

If this fails for some reason:

Delete PWCGBoS

Install the new version

Run it.  I will create the User directory (you can also do this yourself)

Copy your saved Campaigns directory into User

HI I've used PWGC in RoF and it works great, thanks for this mod. I installed the FC version, on the 2nd mission the game froze twice, even though there were only 4 planes in the air. The 1st time complete freeze, 2nd time freeze but, could get esc, and end mission, able to claim 3Camel later. Any ideas to fix this? Thanks.

Hello, we're having a load of fun with co-op campaigns, but it seems like it's not automatically assigning any skins to AI flights. We can manually apply them to squadron members and it works, but other squadrons will always be in the game's default skin. It seems like this is just a co-op problem, they work fine in singleplayer. 

 

Is there an option or something obvious that we've missed somewhere, or is this just an inherent thing with co-op? 

 

Thanks!

Hello,

Flew around 10 missions with latest PWCGFC 11.8.1 and so far so good until I got Escort mission that has route outside map area. It was impossible to fly there and also AI bombers was always returned from there.

 

Lone Wolf missions seems to be still broken. I selected it and it generated flight of three with AI lead.

 

Attached mission with out of map route.

 

I am getting right amount of enemy AI in missions now that's great.

Not sure what is happening.  Skin assignment is no different between single player and coop

I can't seem to delete waypoints.

 

Whilst not the squadron commander, I am often the flight commander (as 2Lt), but right clicking on the waypoints on the map shows me the details of said waypoints but doesn't give me the option to delete them.

 

I can of course drag them by left clicking but can't delete them altogether.

 

Many missions have very long climb/ingress paths, which I'm sure is true to life but a bit painstaking in real life, so deleting and/or adjusting waypoints is important.

 

Do you have to be a squadron commander or certain rank to delete waypoints, or am I doing something wrong?

 

I did search for this but couldn't find a solution.

Hi All.

 

Just downlaoded PWCG for Flying circus and trying to sort skins.

I've downloaded all the skin packs from the PWCG site but still seem to be missing about 100 skins. I've searched through the skins forum here and can't seem to find them listed, am I missing something?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I set up a late war German campaign to fly the Fokker DVIIF and the missions create up to the point where I accept mission then I get an error saying I don't own that plane, so I toodle over to the store and that plane is not for sale....so no F models?

If you updated PWCG, be sure you actually selected your "owned" a/c again.  Not that its ever happened to me before...;)

I selected all planes because i have bought everything offered in the store, since the Focker DVIIF isn't in the store i assumed it was already available in FC

Yes, no collector a/c in FC, so it should be there.  Does it show up in the PWCG screen to select?

Question: When does the Fokker D VII become available as an aircraft to fly?  Is it sometime in June 1918?  Thanks. Swoose

 

 

Should be May of 1918 with wider availability in June.

Hey.  I'm thinking of buying FC, but not without a career mode and this seems to tick the box.

 

Quick question though. From what I've seen, this mod runs in a separate window from the main game.  If that's the case, how easy is it to use in VR, as VR is the only reason I'm interested in FC over RoF.


Thanks in advance.

When I used PWCG, I took off my VR headset and used the desktop window to set up the mission, make kill claims, and such. Once the mission was generated, I put the headset back in and loaded the mission in the game menu using VR. It is not necessary to close IL2 to generate a new mission or to make claims and debrief a mission after completion. I suppose you could also use Virtual Desktop to access the desktop while wearing your headset if you really want, but it's not necessary.

Yes...Alt-Tab is the easy one step answer, and is how I have been using VR with PWCG for 90% of my IL2/FC time since they were both introduced.  Honestly, it isn't a bad thing ergonomically, and for your eyes, to take off the headset after a mission anyway.  (Standing up isn't a bad idea either).

 

I have seen some comments that it breaks immersion, but for me it is simply the same as removing a flight helmet, jumping out of the cockpit, and walking to the ready room for the debrief and then the next mission brief before returning to the a/c.  Regardless, PWCG is definitely worth it and Pat just keeps improving it...see the thread below.  Good luck!

Hello Pat,

Could you please have a look at some questions for PWCG specific for FC?

 

1. Can you set lower speeds for the missions? I get speeds of 230 km/hr. for WP legs. For FC speeds of 120 to 130 km/hr. would be more applicable. As it is now all AI fly constantly at top speed but for me (humble human pilot) it is very hard work to keep up.
2. Could you please have a look at the mission objects? Because the mission never gets "successful" it looks as if the GB measurement is used for the FC mission generator.
3. Could the "egress" WP also be the trigger for the "return to base" step? I flew a mission as number four and the group never attacked another plane so I followed the leader back to base but even as the blue landing WP came on it never said "return to base".

 

I very much like the career mode that PWCG offers. This, plus the EM by Vander are the best there is for FC!
