Two part question: (1)It seems that the only Normandy/Ardennes campaigns in Mudmovers is "Ardennen", flying 109. I have seen references in this site to such P51 missions or campaigns, but where are they downloaded from?. I'm suprised that, after the new patch, there aren't many, many of these, particularly in view of the skill level of some of these mission builders. (of which I'm not one).(2) Anybody know when northern France terrains will bne available? It'd be sweet to fly a Mustang from England to the Normandy coast during the invasion!

Well let me try again. I would suggest that you go to this site
http://members.shaw.ca/lowengrin/index.html
there you will find Paul Lowengrins DGN "IL2 Dymanic Campaign Generator". If you want to fly US campaigns you can for Normandy, Ardennes, Berlin'44 and Berlin'45. It can be tricky to setup so please read the instructions, and get all the down loads.
Right now I am flying a Normandy campaign in a p47 and a P51 as well as an Ardennes campaign in a P47 and a P51, however I also have 2 installs of FB.
You can also go here, as Paul Lowengrin the author of the DCG's does post answers at this site
http://www.simhq.com
Go to upper right hand corner to forums, scroll down to the IL-2 Forgotten Battles forums and look for DCG topics, very useful.
BTW do not tell any one here for some reason Paul's DCG program is not very well received on this board.

Bowler said it. DCG is the only way I know of to fly USAAF campaigns. And DCG is very nice.

I'm working on a P-47 Normandy campaign. Probably a short P-51 Ardennes campaign could be next! I'm getting better at missions but it takes me a long time to test and retest and so on.

Click the link in my sig for a USAAF campaign folder and a P-47 campaign called "The Real Deal".
Also at mudmovers on the FB campaigns page is an excellent P-51 campaign by Poymando

Download the USAAF campaign folder here (http://).

I downloaded the Ponys and Jugs file and it has an installer with it, but I can't figure out which directory I should install it into. It gives the default directory which is wrong, can anyone help.

Could someone point me in the right direction please.

And the Hells Gazelle's Campaign is jolly good, even if I do say so myselfhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

BTW Extreme One, "The Real Deal" is the best Campaign, I've tried so farhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If anyone is interested, I made a Radio file for those flying P51/P47 missions (In-Cockpit)....It'll give you 30+ minutes of in-flight radio entertainment, just as it would have sounded on the Non-HiFidelity acft radios of the 40's, to pass away the time while you are enroute to the target area. The Read me explains where to put the file. Feedback welcome from anyone who tries it out... I plan to do more of these in the near future ...

hi,unable to sign in as No601_Gilly for some reason.

the Jugs & Ponys missions I put up at my wingman's site last week are meant to be played from your coop folder so as you get to try all the fighters on both sides.It should install in your net coop folder as a "J & P missions folder"
the skins will also auto install and there's a skins gallery and read me with the zip file.
the missions themselves are 9 for the USAAF and 9 for the RAF.you can fly LW if you prefer.
Sorry these are the first missions I've put out and there'es a couple of things I'm fixing up as I write.These will be fixed up by Tuesday latest and the new mission pack will be uploaded then.
regards

This is a B17 escort mission I made for our squad that is a lot of fun with good visuals and challenges. Enjoy!
