The game shipped without campaigns for the Western Front. This was part of a deal where the developer of some of the maps was allowed to sell a semi-official add-on to compensate him for his unpaid efforts. Look for BOE (Battle over Europe) threads or go to the Justflight website to order the add-on.

I am using the Moscow 1 map to loosely represent the Ardennes sector. It works to a large extent as the terrain is somewhat similar.

Out of curiousity, MLunder, why are you using the Moscow map to represent the Ardennes when there is an Ardennes map? Size?

Wermacht1988,
If you have Forgotten Battles with the 1.22 patch installed, or AEP for FB, then you will have the Normandy and Ardennes maps. As was said, though, the developer of DGen and the author of the default career campaigns -- Starshoy -- became a partner in the Battle Over Europe addon and therefore no DGen missions for the Western European front are included in FB/AEP. Some solutions/workarounds for this include:

1. Order Battle Over Europe from JustFlight.com.

2. Make your own missions with Full Mission Builder.

3. Download a compatible version of Paul Lowengrin's Dynamic Campaign Generator and bolster it with Extreme_One's "Real Deal USAAF Campaign Pack" (available at Netwings around pg. 9 of FB missions pages).

4. Download Demon's UberQuick Mission Generator that gives you "Quick Mission Builder" capability for every map.

5. Look for the commercial 'scripted missions' addon "Combat Over Europe" by GMX media -- it can sometimes be found on clearance racks at EB Games or Gamestop for only a couple of dollars.

6. Download custom missions and campaigns from sites like Netwings. Specifically, look for "On Our Way to Victory" and "Hellhawks Campaign" somewhere around pages 9-12 on the Netwings FB missions pages. (If you only have FB but not AEP then be advised that you probably won't be able to use custom missions that were built in versions of the game later than FB 1.22.)
