Dear IL-2/FB/PF Community, and UQMG users,

It is my pleasure to announce the immediate availability of the most exciting UQMG version to date: UQMG for FB+AEP+PF. This is a brand NEW INSTALLATION, and not an upgrade. It is a completely revamped UQMG that is designed following many requests from the community and it includes very exciting new features, as well as all the easy to use features you are used to. The total number of updates and new features are just way too many to describe, so I will highlight the most important ones below. If you have never used UQMG before please give this totally cost free application a try.

Support for Combined FB+AEP+PF 3.04
==============================
- BRAND NEW Tutorial - Learn UQMG the easy way (Even UQMG veterans should use it and enjoy it)
- EASY! Ground Object Editor - Substitute or remove any ground object or target for each team
- EASY! Artillery/Naval Gun AI Editor - Control gun AI behavior for each team
- EVEN EASIER! Automatically match Ground Objects, Static Aircraft with correct countries, to used aircraft in mission, time period and countries!

New UQMM (Mission Manager) Features
=============================================

* Missions with moving carriers automatically get converted to static carriers with CORRECT spawn areas!
- Support for all new countries
- Support for all new aircraft and regiments
- Support for all PF maps (even ones not supported in UQMG)
- Revised interface to match UQMG
- No change in weapons option

What exactly is UQMG?
==================
UQMG is a quick mission generator that fills a gap between PF€s QMB and FMB. UQMG is easy like QMB, albeit with countless more features, some of which are as advanced as the ones in FMB. UQMG is free, professionally designed, has been around since 2001 when IL-2 was first released, and was featured in two major flight simulation publications. UQMG does things that QMB does not, most notably:
* Creates Coop and DF Arena in addition to SP
* More than 32 planes (over 20 Thousand, yes 20000, depending on your PC)
* Start on base, water, carrier, or air with several possibilities
* 47 Maps from IL-2 to PF (constantly being updated)
* ALL aircraft in IL-2 to PF (updated as new PF patches are released)
* Use composite flights as easily as normal flights:
- Several Tug/Glider combinations
- TB3+I16 SPB Zveno
- Fw190+Mistel
- Historical Ace flights without Ace repetition
* Select ground units easily or automatically match them with scenario and year
* Scenery based on PC capability
* Mission winning conditions/objectives
* Write briefing with mission header that are automatically generated
* Two additional tools: UQMM (Mission Manager) and UQMB (International Mission Briefer)
* Missions are designed in an average of less than two minutes, and generated in seconds


To install UQMG:
=============
* Download WinZIP file from http://www.uberdemon.com
* UnZIP it in a temporary directory/folder, such as "c:\temp" or create one. Right Click on the zip file and then go to the Winzip options, then select "Extract Here".
* Double click the file "setup.exe"
* Preferably, use the default directory installation in the setup.
* Start UQMG from the Start Windows menu.
* Follow ALL Instructions closely when you install it.
* Whether you are familiar with UQMG or new to it, I recommend you to click the "Tutorial" yellow button to start enjoying the features of UQMG right away. It is easy to read, and you will have lots of fun with it building missions that are very playable.

For UQMG Veterans:
* After you install this version you can transfer any of your custom "uqmg" mission data files to the new UQMG. Read instructions in the File menu in UQMG. After that, you can uninstall the previous version of UQMG.

Bearcat99,

You are a scholar and a gentleman. Thank you for the sticky. Got your e-mail and replied. Should have some good news soon.

I wish I met a Tuskegee Airman! I cherish any conversation with WW2 Vets. I'd like to see a new Tuskegee Airmen movie. Not that the for-TV one is not good, but I think that with new CGI and graphics effects, a lot could be added to enhance their story; perhaps something with a "Band of Brothers" tone, with interviews, and just that feel that you are really there.

I have a question: where is the south Japan map, Havai map, Midway and Marianas? By the way that was the most important thing that QMB dont have: variety of maps(i hate flat maps, game looks like cfs with tham). I was hoping to fly and fight on these but they are not present, why? Maybe i dont do something right, but i see the maps: flat Okinawa, Coral sea, flat Iwo jima and flat Guadalcanal. Basicaly maps that look bad.
How to play in South Japan? Where is Midway?

DarthBane,

On the interest of time, I released the new UQMG with only a sampling of PF-only maps. UQMG map templates are magnitudes more complex to create than the QMB templates (I only say that because I know how they are built, and last year I build a set of QMB templates for Oleg, but the Net 5 template never got incorporated into any of the releases, although Oleg's team did test them).

Depending on the complexity of the map, building the UQMG templates can take days. It took me 2.5 years (albeit working alone) to finally have all 43 maps spanning IL-2 to AEP in UQMG. It is a lot of work, but I'll release them as time permits.

In the meantime, you can enjoy carrier operations in all maps, inlcuding the old maps from IL-2/FP and AEP. For example, the Mediterranean map is perfect for Operation Torch-like scenarios.

Also, please go over the tutorial. You will really get the most out of UQMG if you go through it, even as a veteran user. It is fun and you build and play missions as you learn all aspects of mission building in UQMG.

Make sure you clear the cache in your Internet browser. You are probably going to the cached versions in my website, which are on your computer. To refresh the pages, you can click "F5" in Internet Explorer. Not sure of the command in Netscape or Mozilla.

If you have a firewall, your firewall maybe caching the website as well... there should be a way for you to clear that cache.

If you are still having problems the link is at http://www.uberdemon.com/downloads/uqmg4pf0000.zip

However, you may want to figure out how to clear either the cache in your PC or in your firewall, otherwise you will run into the same problem when I release my upgrade very soon...

Hope this helps.

Just in case you missed the post with the announcement, here is the info on the latest upgrade just released:

UQMG FB+AEP+PF UPGRADE 5.0.43 - W98/ME, Net Iwo Jima Map

Dear UQMG users from the IL-2 FB/PF Community,

(Download and Installation Instructions in the bottom of this post.)

I am extremely excited to announce the immediate availability of the new upgrade for UQMG for FB+AEP+PF. It is free, of course, and will bring your UQMG to version 5.0.43. All in all, IL-2 FB+AEP+PF will bring you now more enjoyment than ever with the new features in UQMG.

This is an upgrade for UQMG for FB+AEP+PF (versions 5.x.x and higher). This upgrades fixes some problems with the original installation. The major features are listed below:

MAJOR FIXES:
* Limited support for Win 98/ME machines enabling all features except Ground Objects Editor (GOE). UQMG is only 100% compatible with XP PCs with enough RAM resources. This varies from machine to machine and how much memory is available.
* Fixed "Cannot Create Directories" error with more code that fixes the problem within UQMG without need for user intervention.
* Fixed bug that did not load Fuel quantities correctly when starting UQMG

UPDATES:
* Tutorial Updates
* Added Web link to UQMG Support Forum at AirWarfare.com in Help menu.

NEW MAPS
* Net Iwo Jima, with 4 sample "uqmg" mission data files
+ This map includes lots of scenery, including smoke and fires, plus the ability to conduct carrier ops. I'll post later some screenshots of this map, and you will be convinced that this small download (490K) is worth your time.


Installation
================================
NEWS: There is a new UQMG Support Forum at AirWarfare.com. If you have any questions, feedback, problems, please post a message at:
* http://www.airwarfare.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=25

WARNING: This UPGRADE is ONLY COMPATIBLE with UQMG for IL-2 FB+AEP+PF (versions 5.x.x and higher). It will not work with previous non-PF UQMG versions (versions 4.x.x and lower).

This upgrade is to be installed over any version of UQMG for FB+AEP+PF combo install (Not compatible with previous Non-PF UQMG versions). All subsequent upgrades will only be applicable to UQMG for FB+AEP+PF. Only one upgrade version will be available at a time to eliminate confusion, and ALL upgrades can be installed over any version of UQMG for FB+AEP+PF.

To install upgrade to UQMG for FB+AEP+PF:
* Download upgrade WinZIP file from http://www.uberdemon.com/downloadpage.html
* UnZIP it in the UQMG for FB+AEP+PF installation directory, which is generally "c:\program files\uberquickpf"
* Right Click on the zip file and then go to the Winzip options, then select "Extract Here".
* Overwrite files if it prompts you to.
* Start UQMG from the Start Windows menu.
* Whether you are familiar with UQMG or new to it, I recommend you to click the "Tutorial" yellow button to start enjoying the features of UQMG right away. It is easy to read, and you will have lots of fun with it building missions that are very playable.

GrimReaper,

Just downloaded with no problems. The server is in Australia and at certain times of the day, it is super busy and you will have problems. Depending where you are, your low bw time may coincide with a high bw time in Australia... those darn Australians and their Fosters and whatnot... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Seriously, I have low bw and I have luck with a download manager called Fresh Download. It is free. Try that or try later. Another thing to do is going to AirWarfare.com and going to the UQMG support forum, in the similar announcement there, there is a mirror for the big download, then you only need the small upgrade later. (make sure you intall, run, configure, generate and play a mission BEFORE installing the upgrade.)

first post.

amibulletproof,

Thank you for using UQMG, and hope you enjoy it. The tutorial and all the sample missions should keep you busy for a while... until you get comfortable with the interface. Then you will see that you can have infinite combinations for lots of fun. The thought behind UQMG is that you should enjoy PF more, and spend less trying to figure it out.

Best Regards,
Demon/UberDemon

Uberdemon, I have always loved your software, thanks for your constant devotion to the IL2 community.

My one and only question is "WHY AREN'T YOU ON THE 1C PAYROLL?"

Uberdemon,

I've been flying IL2FB+AEP+PF for about 6 months now, on and off. I've seen this thread before, but was scared away by the complexity of the screen shots, and I am even a programmer with 20 years experience! I just figured I had enough to figure out with this sim itself. But today, I downloaded UQMG and have just started going through the tutorial. This is AWESOME! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

The Tutorial is just great, and really gets you started and flying very easily and quickly, which for me really made me want to learn the rest of it. You have done a fantastic job with this program, making all the complex details work easily and well together. The UI is well designed, especially with all the built-in '?' help icons and tutorial button right on the main page.

I just wanted to thank you for all your efforts and hard work. You have done an excellent job with this program and really filled the gap between the QMB and FMB very nicely. Thanks again!!!!!

AStotzer,

Thank you so much for your kind comments. A compliment from a programmer is something that makes me happy... I am not a real programmer. Just do this as a hobby when time permits... unfortunately I have had a lot on my plate so I have had just about zero time to dedicate to anything IL2 related during the last 2 months.

Thanks for using UQMG.

Uber, I really hate to impose on your time and generosity but do you have a vague idea when a version will be ready for the 4.x patch?

Again, thanks. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'll second this question... I know you are busy but do you have any idea when the rest of the PF maps will be added to UQMG? Thanks for an indispensible asset to FB/PF!!

I think we all know what the answer to this question is...

... two weeks... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Seriously... I have not had much time to do anything FB/PF/UQMG related, but as soon as I can I will. Good news is that I got the latest patch, so I'll start working soon. The maps... well, those templates take time. It took me a few years to get caught up with FB... and Pacific fighters introduced quite a few more maps.

Best Regards,

I really like your program, it adds just that missing part to FB/PF that made me get a bit bored with the sim. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
Now, just as I am excited again to start using UQMG, there comes this great patch that also adds a lot. So there you have it, should wait with the patch or with UQMG? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
Actually, my question is, could the current version of UQMG (5.0.43) also work with the new patch (4.01m) of PF/FB? Offcourse, I don't expect to be able to use the new features like aircraft and maps that come with 4.01m, but it would resolve the problem of having to choose between both and it should be possible to edit a UQMG-mission in FMB to add the new planes, if they are compatible at all.
Anyway, take as long as you want making that new version, I appreciate your current work very much as it is and it is only to easy asking for more... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Ennosigaios,

Yes, you can use UQMG with the new patch. Of course, as you mentioned, you will not be able to use the new objects, but yes, you can edit the generated mission in FMB. Many mission, campaign and movie creators use UQMG to aid them in their missions. All you have to do is create a mission, then go to FMB, and open the file that has numbers in its name (don't select "Z_UQMGSingleReset") that is located in the following folder:

* "Single\NN\( Play UberQuick Mission )"

Now you can edit it in the FMB. Make sure that if you want to save it for posterity, you save it in another folder, because that files will be overwritten by UQMG or UQMM if you generate another mission.

That is it.

Great!!! Thnx. So I CAN enjoy both. Then indeed I'll use UQMG to make my missions and put new planes in as needed. Take all your time to make that new version, I'll be busy enough in the meantime http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.
