Is possible to change weapon set at the beginning of dgen campaign? (for examle i would like to fly Finnish campaign "Leningrad 1944" using Me 109 G6 late. When I start as a lower rank pilot, programm generate U4 weapon set - with 30 mm gun, for my squadron. I would like to use "default" weapon set - with 20 mm gun).
Is there in the game folder a file which can I use to change this weapon to "default"?

Yes, the right person just read you post!!! Go into your game install folder and locate a folder called "DGEN". then in the folder browse until you find a file called "europlanes.dat". Find the lines for the BF_109G6LATE in there under Germany for nationality. They have some planes under Finland, but not 109 Late, so changing it for Germany should work in Finnish campaign.


Then where it says "U3-MK108" change the wording to "default" with no caps. If your PC does not know how to open a "dat" file at first, make it so they open in 'Notepad' text editor. DO NOT use 'Wordpad' or a word processor, such as MS Word or MS Office. Then exit and save changes!!

IMPORTANT: See below for example of the lines in the dat file and most important of all, these
changes are not retroactive for an active campaign if I remember correctly. You can continue flying your old campaign a couple missions to see if weapon changes to 20mm. But don't count on it. You may have to start a new campaign??? I'm not able to remember right off hand.

NOTE: Change to default only where it says U3-MK108. Where bombs are listed as weapon, those aircraft will be equiped with 20mm gun already. And for those mission types, they really need bombs so don't change them.

Thank you. It works.
I tried to edit this file before, but i don't know why my file was .txt not .dat
So I changed "txt" to "dat" and edited and it is OK.
