I'm having the same problem - installed it, the blue folder is there under UK, but there is nothing to select.

In your picture, Steve, the Career field is empty.

do you think it's conflicting with the Two Little DUCies campaign?

To install the campaign, you should open the .zip in Winzip, select all folders and extract to your .... /Ubi Soft/ IL2 Forgotten Battles folder. Be sure you check "Use File Names" in the winzip window before you extract.

You will also need to install either Battle Over Europe or Extreme_One's BOB Campaign to get the awards and ranks. I did not include those files because it made the .zip file alot bigger and most people have them already.

I hope that helps. Post back if you have any more problems. It actually does work. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif

Nope! The "Two little DUCs" campaign goes in the US folder not in the GB folder.

OK guys... if you get this;

http://jyarbrough.homestead.com/No_Campaign.jpg (http://jyarbrough.homestead.com/No_Campaign.jpg)

when you try to start "The Blue", it means you need to install the ranks & awards files to your GB campaign folder. You can get a .zip with these files in it at the link in my sig right below the campaign itsself. That way you will not have to DL any big files. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Oh, and BTW my campaigns are actually designed to work with Extreme_One's so I don't think you will find any conflicts between them. This was all in the read me file but I guess you guys were in a hurry to fly against the "Ities". http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

Hey BB, thanks for the campaign! I think it's awesome. Very good storyline, excellent scripting! (The only problem I have is trying not to burn up that Hurri engine in the hot desert sun, lol).

Err I'm afraid the problem is still there. I placed the rank files in the GB campaign folder and also tried putting the rank folder in the GB folder but still can't see the blue campaign.

Now it's fine, had some files misplaced. Btw is the overheat also affects the AI in 2.04?
Thx for being considerate towards us 56kers. Thx for the campaign.

In this campaign, I strongly recommend you turn off Overheat. You will have persistant problems otherwise. The AI is not affected by Overheat, so you will be at a major disadvantage if you select it. Overheat just takes the fun out of it.

This is one of the very best short campaigns out there. As for overheating, for something a little cooler try the RAF 46 Squadron Norway campaign by Mariskal. That is also a lot of fun if you're into Hurri-ups.

Just finished 2nd mission. Downed a CR 42. Quite suprised that in the following mission the route is actually out of map http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif. Hey but that adds to the fun. So far it's a good campaign. Thx

Ok, it's selectable now. I get through the intro, to mission screen.

There is no map, and when I click fly I get this:

Mission Loading failed: Landscape 'SandsofTime/Load.ini'

What am I missing?

Wingnut, that means that you've not pathed FB to atleast 2.01. The map is in 2.01.

I never patch FB (56kers problem) until i found someone nice in the forum who happens to live in the same region and has boadband access to burn and send me the patches.

Also Snuffy Smith...thanks for the nice comments. I am glad you enjoyed it and there is more in the works. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif I think the overheat is a little better since the 2.04 patch, at least with the Spitfire and the 109s. I haven't flown the Hurri enough since then to tell for sure.

Sounds like your Patch did not load correctly.
You should load in this order...
IL2FB
ACE Expansion Pack
BOE if you have it
2.01 Patch
2.04 Patch
or Ace to 2.04 Patch (They are different)

You may need to reload FB or at least the patches to get the desert map. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

That's the order I installed everything and although the background of the hurricane in a desert skin is there the rank and plane selection drop downs are blank. Anything I can try as I was really looking forward to this.

Look on the previous page & I think you will see that you need the GB ranks & awards. You can get them at the link in my sig.

BTW...did you read the readme file? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
