UQMG for IL2FB UPGRADE 4.6.8! UQMM - UberQuick Mission Manager

http://www.uberdemon.com/pictures/uqmm00.jpg

Dear UQMG users from the IL-2 FB Community,

(Download and Installation Instructions in the bottom of this post.)

Dear UQMG users,

I am extremely excited to announce the immediate availability of the most exciting UQMG upgrade to date, not only it brings all new features of the UQMM, it provides every upgrade released for UQMG to date. It is free, of course, and will bring your UQMG to version 4.6.8. I will highlight the most important updates below. All in all, IL-2 FB will bring you now more enjoyment than ever with the new features in UQMG and UQMM.

* UQMM (UberQuick Mission Manager) is a powerful, yet very easy to use tool that (I hope) will transform FB/AEP for both Off-line and Online players alike. It is a separate application that is embedded within UQMG, yet it uses the same premise as UQMG, where three versions of a mission are generated (Single Play in None Country, Coop version, and DF version). The following are the features of UQMM:

* Original Missions are NEVER Overwritten - edited missions are playable in the same location as the UQMG Missions

* Ability to play any mission in FB/AEP from enemy's perspective (if flyable enemies are available) with objectives AUTOMATICALLY converted for playing as the enemy.

* Play Any Coop Mission As SP Mission (and choose which plane to fly)

* Play Any Campaign Mission As SP Mission - static campaigns, DGEN, DCG, NGEN

* Play Any SP Mission and Choose Which plane to fly (enven enemy)

* Play Any Campaign Mission, but Choose which plane to fly

* Play Any Mission as a Coop Mission - Automatically generated

* Play Any Mission as a DF Arena - Automatically generated for you whether you picked a Coop mission, an SP mission, or a Campaign mission. Arena will only have the types of planes available in original mission.

* Prohibit/Allow AI planes in DF Arena

* Remove AI Only tags from Coop Missions

* Copy all Stock Missions from original IL-2 Sturmovik into FB/AEP - Self explanatory. This automatic script takes care of putting all missions from IL-2 into FB/AEP without overwriting your files, your current static campaigns, or compromising license issues. As long as you are a legal owner of licenses for both FB and IL-2, the feature will work.

Other feature:
* Now UQMG saves and loads original date for mission - very useful if using automatic header generation for briefings.


To install this upgrade:
========================
* Download WinZIP file from http://www.uberdemon.com
* UnZIP it in the directory you installed UQMG for IL2 FB (most likely "c:\program files\uberquickfb"). Best way to do that is to Right Click on the zip file and then go to the Winzip options, then select "Extract Here".
* Start UQMG as usual.
* ONLY INSTALL UPGRADE AFTER YOU'VE RUN THE ORIGINAL UQMG INSTALLATION SUCCESSFULLY AND PLAYED AT LEAST ONE UQMG GENERATED MISSION IN IL-2 FB!!!! IF YOU INSTALL UPGRADE BEFORE YOU RUN UQMG, IT WILL NEVER WORK. If you do that you will need to uninstall UQMG from the Windows Control Panel, then manually erase the UQMG directory, then you will need to re-install it, go through every step without skipping anything, then run it, follow instructions when running, generate a mission, if successful then install upgrade. Needless to say, read the instructions.
* If you get asked to overwrite a file, say "Yes to All".

Oo! Oo! Oo!

Looks like I will be reinstalling the original IL2 disc and getting the updates so that I can copy the original stuff from IL2 using your new feature . . . Then uninstalling it. I used to try to do this manually, and I never did get all the missions over into FB.

This is going to ROCK!

Thank you all. This kind of response keeps me going, much to my wife's discontent... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

This was definitely a set of features that I wish was there, but were not. Sure you could do this using Windows Explorer, Notepad and FMB, but this makes it easy... I think it is better when the user does not have to think much to make things work (the way he/she wants it). I am a user, and I am pretty dumb, so I assume there are other poor saps like me out there... to make a long story short (too late), I decided to get off my lazy behind and do this.

Hope you enjoy, and let me know how you like it. Who is using this? The offline of the online community?

Best Regards,

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Uberdemon, I have mostly used your software offline, and it has been the best experience with realism that I have had since getting involved with this game. Seeing so many planes in the air at the same time is very cool, but I would never be able to see a bomb run with 100 bombers in the air online, so here is the reason for mostly using this offline . . . .

HOWEVER . . . Last night I flew a mission from the Fork Tailed Deveils mini-campaign, but I flew it as a coop mission. I didn't have anyone with me, but the possibilties excite me. As soon as my mate, Skidro, gets up and running, I am draggin' his butt into that campaign with me. I'll finally have what I never had when flying this campaign with the AI offline: A GOOD WINGMAN! )I hope that you heard that, Skid!) One that doesn't mysteriously crash for no reason, or vanish once he lands. Or shoots my butt off when he should be covering it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

So, what I am saying is that UQMG is about to go online at Tsisqua's place. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

And yes, I LOVE UQMG now more than ever.

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gifThank You Uber Demon, you have made IL-2 into a almost new and exciting Game... with almost endless multiple ways to set up Game Missions.
I mostly had been using FBM until I tried Uber Demon... and with the Uber Demon Programs you have provided us with, there is a hugh time saving over the original FMB and has been faultless in it's operation.
Hopefully Oleg will incorperate these Program's into the New PF and BoB Games.
Again Thank's for for all this Hard Work! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

tsisqua,

I thank you very much, as always. Very interesting. I have little time to play online... so I am mostly an offline player. UQMG was originally the QMB with my wishes (plus other things people in the community asked for.), but at the time I thought... why not just make a Coop version of every mission generated anyway?

Funny that I ended up making a tool that is used by several virtual squadrons now, but was primarily developed for offline. In anyway, especially if you are an owner of the original IL-2, that opens up a whole new horizon, because you can play all missions in IL-2 now as Coop with UQMM. That is a huge number of missions... over 500 missions just from the campaigns alone... plus with UQMG you can make your own in seconds, and you have infinite possibilities there as well. Should be fun.


woofiedog,

Cool. Another primary reason for me creating these missions is the time-saving aspect. You endup tinkering with something so much that the playing and enjoying time is gone. The whole point of UQMG and UQMM is for you to go on and enjoy IL-2 (the way I think it was meant to be experienced), and fast. Thank you again for continuing to use UQMG.

Snoop_Baron,

I hope you like this addition. It is painfully easy to use. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Really it is so easy you'll waste even more time playing IL-2... he he.

McCallaway,

Thank you. Unfortunately it is not in the game engine itself, but I try to make it easy enough for you to think and feel it is... hopefully...

Many Thanks.

Uther,

Thank you. The FMB is very powerful, after all that is the tool I use to build the missions templates that I generate my scripts from.

However, FMB takes some time, and sometimes you just want things to be ready for you to play. That is why I created UQMG and UQMM. Go on and have fun. Building missions is fun, but if what you want to do is go have a flight, perhaps spending 10-20 minutes building your mission may not be timely enough...

Heck you could have a mission with 100 planes in UQMG created in less than a minute...

Also, say you build a mission in UQMG and you like it. You could always go into FMB and customize it even further to make it your dream mission.

Enjoy and thank you for using UQMG/UQMM.

Hey Uber M8. I've enjoyed your program since I started flying this sim about a year ago. And you keep making it better and better. I know this is a FREE deal for the community, but I am sure there are those of us that would like to show our appreciation by making a donation. Do you have a PayPal account? If so, what email address do you have associated with it? I've had to sit back in the past and let others donate on my behalf because funds were tight. Well, this time I can return the favor on behalf of all my fellow FB m8's that are having tight times. I would encourage those of us that are able, to do the same. This man has labored as hard to keep his program updated and easy to use, as Oleg has in supporting this sim. Then maybe your wifey won't be so discontent. loll

HH Quazi,

I appreciate your comments. Yes, I do have a Paypal account. The link to it is in the bottom of my website (www.uberdemon.com (http://www.uberdemon.com)).

Most of all, I appreciate your comments. As I always say, I do this for the passion, and not the cash. The cash is nice though. I am saving up for a big date with my wife. She has been very understanding about Il-2.

She is an incredible artist and writer. I think that if I can convince her to use her talents in making skins for Il-2, we may have one of the greatest skin makers ever... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Anyway, I appreciate your comments (one more time), but it is drinking time with my woman (wife), so I gotta go!

Best Regards,
Demon/UberDemon
