Just played one mission and this is an amazing looking campaign! You have to try this to check out the cool things he has done with the land battle. Must have taken weeks to fill in the map in such detail. Really added immersion to the mission instead of the usual flying over empty desert. Quite amazing. Nice skins, too.
The briefings are in German but they don't show up for me. If I delete the _de suffix do you think it'll work?

Actually, the same thing happened to me but i tried again, restarted and there it was. Then i had it hang on me after he first mission. Hmm. Looks good but still a few things to sort out, methinks.

Okay, just found the patch for the campaign at the thread listed above. For those who can't read german, look for the following words in the thread at Sturmovik.de. It's in the thread about 8 posts down and is written in red writing.

Hier der Patch1.1 damit sollte es klappen!

@Orheim - I THINK that an English version is being finished off now. My German isn't so good though.

i had the same problem. i just noticed, however, that though the default install LOOKS like it's the same as the english default, it's actually going to the folder 'programme' instead of 'program files'. this solved my problem, hope it helps.

Follow install directions exactly esp during the 2 exe.extractions....& where they are supposed to go.

First off, i want to say that I've been acking for a North Africa campaign for a long long time.

I thought this one will be perfect.

But it is un-playable??!!!

My PC: Athlon64 3500+
2GB OCZ RAM 2-2-2-5
Gainward 7800GT 512MB
DFI lanparty MBO
WD raptor 74 GB

So, as you can see, a very good gaming rig. Excellent for IL2.
I must also point out that I play at 1600*1200 with max settings all other in-game campaigns.

But this one not only stutters, I get few FPS when the battle begins in first mission.

I lowered the res at 1024*768, medium settings, but everything stayed the same??!!!

How is this possible??

I have downloaded ver 1.3

Does anyone of you have the same problems?
Or is the campaign so buggy?
Too bad anyway, since I was really looking forward to flying in JG27!

Buster - I have a lower spec machine than yours but it ran almost stutter-free. I remember in one mission when lots of ground action happened there was a brief pause while lots of stuff exploded at the same time. Other than that it ran fine. Try another mission or two. It is a good looking, fun campaign with great skins so it is worth a try.
Also, look at the following for more desert campaigns.

This is a link to all bird_brain's campaigns. There are four? desert campaigns, I believe.

Just remembered the excellent Jagdflieger Part 2 campaign. Part one is good - it deals with the BOB but part two might appeal to you more as it is set mainly in N.Af. Player flies a FW-190. Some really beautiful skins in this one and lots of bomber killing fun. It's available from airwarfare at

My one is also there -hint, hint http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif!
