UQMG FB+AEP+PF UPGRADE 14 - 4.04m Support/NewGuinea Map

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

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

I apologize for being out of touch for a while, but my personal and professional lives have literally turned 360 degrees (yes, 180, then another 180...). I wanted to release more features but with my busy life it has been hard to work on coding. Nevertheless, here are some updates that will allow you to enjoy one more map plus all the new objects that came with the recent upgrades to IL2/FB/AEP/PF. It is free, of course.

This is an upgrade for UQMG for FB+AEP+PF (versions 5.x.x and higher). Some pictures are shown below, followed by a description of the new features of this upgrade.

sledgehammer2,

Thank you for supporting me for all this time. Yes I am doing OK... just a little tired due to real life, but all's well. Working a lot for sure, but I just love working on UQMG when I can.

I have a couple of other maps on the works right now.

Which is of course short for wayno7... I don't think that anything He-219 is whinning... I love that plane... trying to remember that rare planned variand of the He-219 planned by Hutter... some type of hi-altitude/recce. version... Hu-121??? can't remember. Oh well, maybe we'll see the 219 at some point in this sim.

UberDemon... a quick quesion.

Can we set-up the older version of your program for the orginal Sturmovik IL-2 and also have a seperate new version for the FB/AE/PF of the UberDemon program on the same computer?

Thank's

UberDemon
04-01-2006, 08:24 AM
woofiedog,

Not really, however there are a couple of things you can do... (the second choice is the preferred one)

* First - Using UQMG with the original IL-2 Sturmovik only:
Keep your installation of UQMG as is, then go to:
- In main UQMG interface select "Tools" Menu, then select "Change/Select FB/PF Location". Then point it to the IL-2 Sturmovik location. You may need to restart UQMG.
- CAUTION1: IL-2 does not have a lot of the features that FB/AEP/PF have, so not everything will work, for example, Frontline, so you need to be sure you use only objects that are present in IL-2. If you are using Windows XP you will be able to manage this process through the Ground Editor, but it can be a pain, because a lot of the original maps in IL-2, I designed their templates after FB and AEP came out, so they have features that are more advanced than in IL2... to make a long story short, the mission may simply not load in IL-2 unless you carefully pick the available features.
- CAUTION2: To use UQMG with PF+FB+AEP again, you need to repeat the first step and pint UQMG back to the original location where FB/PF is. You may need to restart UQMG.

- Solution 2 - THE PREFERRED SOLUTION: Use UQMG to transfer all the original missions from IL-2 to FB/AEP/PF (If you have IL-2 installed in the same PC/HDD as FB - this way you need to basically prove you have a license for IL-2
- Step 1 - Select the "UQMM" Mission Manager button in UQMG, now look at the big Green button in the bottom of the interface that says "Copy Stock Missions from Original IL-2 up to 1.2 into FB+AEP+PF", now click the yellow "?" button right by it... what you see below is what you will read:

************
lay Missions From Original "IL-2 Sturmovik" Into FB/AEP
================================================== ==============

As an owner of the previous IL-2 Sturmovik I miss the stock missions that came with the boxed version, and the additional missions that came with the updates up to version 1.2. Il-2 is still a separate product so only owners of both FB/AEP and Il-2 should play missions from the original product in FB, and the original missions should not be available for download. We should all do our part to support Oleg.

For this reason I created a script that transfers IL-2 Sturmovik's Single Play, Coop and original static Campaigns to FB/AEP so that you can enjoy them all with new graphic features and superior engine. The only way you can use this script is if you are a legal owner of the licenses for both Il-2 Sturmovik and Forgotten Battles. Both products must be installed in the same PC, and in some instances, in the same drive. The script will check the Windows registry for the correct information on IL-2 Sturmovik, and if that fails, the script will need to find IL-2 Sturmovik in the same letter drive/partition as the FB/AEP installation; if these conditions are not met, the script will not work.

If the script succeeds, the following will happen, with varied results depending on whether you have one or more of the updates from UbiSoft for IL-2 Sturmovik. Assuming you have every update up to version 1.2, you will get the following:

* Original Fighter Static Campaign for Germany
* Original Fighter Static Campaign for USSR
* Original Bomber/Ground-Attack Static Campaign for USSR
* Addon Bi-1 Static Mini Campaign by Luthier (from Add-on)
* "(Il-2) Coop" folder with the original 5 Coop missions
* SP "(Il-2) Normandie-Nieman" folder for France (The script adds the France
country folder and makes if available in SP, if not present. Originally
these missions were available from the USSR country in SP.)
* SP "(Il-2) Bf-109E7Z" folder for Germany (from Add-on)
* SP "(Il-2) Bf-109G-6" folder for Germany
* SP "(Il-2) FW-190A-4" folder for Germany
* SP "(Il-2) FW-190A-5" folder for Germany (from Add-on)
* SP "(Il-2) Ju-87B-2" folder for Germany (from Add-on)
* SP "(Il-2) IL-2" folder for USSR
* SP "(Il-2) MiG-3U" folder for USSR
* SP "(Il-2) Yak-9" folder for USSR (from Add-on)

Notes:
==========
* Again, if you did not install some of the updates, you may not get the Bi-1 Campaign, or any other set of missions from official add-ons.

* "all.ini" files are NOT overwritten. The script is intelligent enough to merge the necessary campaign information into an existing "all.ini" file IF it is necessary.

* Dogfight missions are not necessary because all DF missions from IL-2 were included in FB, plus additional arenas as well.

* You will NOT get any custom missions from your previous version of IL-2, or any third party mission packs. These need to be transferred manually, and most can be installed directly into FB.
************

So that is pretty easy right?

Also, look at the other features of UQMM, you can play any existing mission in FB/PF/AEP from the enemy perspective (with adjusted objectives) or in any other flyable plane... did you know you could do that? You can even play a Coop mission only as a single player... and it create 3 versions of the original mission, just like in UQMG, one for SP, one for Coop, and one for DF... the feature is so neat that if you picked a carrier mission, UQMM would create a DF version of the mission with a static carriers so you could spawn from it.

Thank You Very much for the information you have provided. I'll try these set-ups and find which is Best. This will be Great... the Original IL-2 is still a Excellent playing game.

Again Thank You for taking the Time to check into this and providing the answers!

I Hope all is going Well in your recent move also.

Really would like to see some night fighting added to this awesome sim:

- Lancasters, Wellingtons, Halifaxes, Stirlings
- Defiants, Blemheims, Beaufighters
- Bf-110s (With oblique cannons), He-219s, Do-17/215/217
- and of course... the P-61 Blackwidow...

Also would like to see some of the makeshift night ops planes, like the Fw-189 night-fighter with oblique cannons, and the old U-2 (just make it flyable), and Polikarpov R-Z, as well as the Hs-123 and other older German biplanes...

All I ask is for 20-30 new planes with the ability operate at night, operate oblique cannons, radars and radio... is that so much to ask? oh the humanity... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ha ha... yeah, that is a lot to ask, but I think that with the future abilities to create 3rd party objects that Oleg mentioned for the PF/FB series, we'll see a lot of this become a reality.

woofiedog,

UQMM is one of the best keep secrets of UQMG... I am surprised more people don't use it. It is pretty powerful... especially if you want to try flying on other planes in the already existing SP, Coop or Campaign missions.

Also, don't forget that I updated the original missions from the original Russian/Leaked Demo 1 of IL-2, as well as the second demo. These are already made missions and I updated them to FB standards. You can get them here at UbiSoft, under missions, or in my website in the Missions page.
