To All,

I have I-L2 1946 version 4.09 installed on my home laptop.

I have been flying the "built-in" dynamic campaigns the game has to offer but have come across a situation I could use some assistance with.

For the US Marine campaign, I have added a few newer Corsairs to different portions / sections of the campaign by editing the "planesUM1.dat" file.

All I have had to do was copy the name of the plane I would like from the 'Skins' section and add it where I needed it to go in the .dat file (using Notepad).

I have tried adding the Tempest to the "planesGB1.dat" file but the aircraft is not recognized when I start the campaign as an available option though the drop-down selection.

Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?

Thank you in advance for any guidance that can be offered.

Sincerely,

KC

You aren't doing anything wrong. DGen has a planes list hard coded into it and if the plane is not in that list the game won't generate missions using it even though you altered planes.dat file for that campaign. Unfortunately the stock version of DGen has not been updated since Pacific Fighters.

There is a modded version of DGen and the game has had several update patches that might interest you too.

Before you make any changes make sure to make a copy of your current installation.
