Hiya

When I try the new MTO DGEN campaign for Tunisia, I get a 'BEEEP'! from my PC, and nothing happens. No lockups, etc

The other DGEN MTO campaigns work fine

Here is the error log:

The first mission in the USAAF Tunisia campaign launched for me when playing both as Spitfire Mk.V and P-40M.

I d/l'd the MTO and extracted to the Dgen folder in which the files appear, not in a separate folder in Dgen. They don't show up in USAAF Pilot Career menu, tho'.

Any suggestions where I went wrong?

Thanks for any help. Looking forward to this.

The way you describe, it seems you put the files in the right place and the correct way...

Any advice I could suggest is probably already in this thread: http://www.simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&...=2369024#Post2369024 (http://www.simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=2369024#Post2369024)

Edit--the name of the campaign, as it appears in the selection menu, is:
*USAAF MTO campaign

Thanks, Skycat!

Today I d/l'd Enjoyr's PatchA, v.3.1. After install, I checked the game and the USAAF MTO is in the selection menu. I loaded the Tunisia campaign and all seems right in the world.

Thanks also for your untiring help to so many others as well as all the contributions you have made to the sim content. Cheers, m8!

I didn't say "this piece of junk DGEN campaign doesn't work"

I said that <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">I</span> can't get to fly the Tunisia campaigns, even though the rest of the campaigns work for me

I'm happy they work for you, but my joy would be immeasurable if they worked for me. Do you see?

That's why I included my error log. I am getting an error...since I can play the others, I must have installed the files ok. But I get an error trying to fly the Tunisia part of this DGEN

So I need help...not reports that others can fly it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Sorry you misunderstood my intent CID. I was only trying to eliminate the possibility that the Tunisia campaigns don't work at all...a big bug or something. I wasn't bragging.

Boelke diagnosed your problem over at SimHQ. You are using the 4.0.0.9 DGen.exe and the MTO campaign needs the 4.0.6.12 DGen, which is included as an extra file in the download. Your DGen.exe is the super outdated version from Pacific Fighters days while the one for MTO is an underground version by Starshoy released just after 1946.

Enjoyr has just included the MTO campaign in his 3.1 patch, and his patches install the 4.0.6.12 DGen.exe automatically.

...well, I did use the new DGEN...no doubt about it, I backed my old one up, re-named, and stored the old DGEN in a 'safe' folder, then checked to see if I DGEN was there after I installed it. I will download and try again.

Re-downloaded, installed, and ran DGEN MTO again

same error

Then I tried manually deleting my old DGEN, and replacing with the DGEN in the download instead of 'copy and replace'

same behavior- BEEEP! and no response but no lock-up. But now I have a different DGEN error:

I got the same error at first.

But, I think it was just the DGEN problem in my case. Were you running DCG on the same install that you tried this with? It appears DCG was rolling back to an old version of DGEN (4.0.0.9) when I told it to revert to the stock campaign generator. Turns out I had another DGEN_bak.exe that was ver 4.0.0.9 floating around in the folder that it was reverting to instead of 4.0.6.12.

To test this I installed DGEN 4.0.6.12, I ran DCG (3.36) and told it to run in Autogen mode and to replace the stock DGEN. After that I unchecked 'Replace DGEN' so it would rollback to the stock DGEN. Upon looking in my 1946 folder the DGEN version was now listed as 4.0.0.9, not 4.0.6.12 as it should have been.

Here's the errorlog I got when I tried a Tunisia P-51B campaign:

= DGen 4.0.0.9 (01/05/05) =

After deleting the DGEN.exe and DGEN_bak files and reinstalling DGEN 4.0.6.12, DCG now correctly reverts to 4.0.6.12 when I tell it to rollback. I think it was looking for the oldest version of DGEN in my folder to revert to. At least that explains how my DGEN got rolled back to such an old version.

I had encountered an error log like the 2nd one you posted after I changed to 4.0.6.12, but now I can't reproduce it. Things seem to be working OK.

With the 4.0.6.12 version installed I was able to set up a P-51B campaign and fly a mission. Sounds like you took the same steps I did to try and fix things, but for some reason it didn't work. I also installed the latest Enjoyr patches, maybe that had something to do with it?
