Singapore.

All RAF a/c (Bombers and Fighters) in campaign have squadron codes 'RS'.

Is it possible to get more variety with this?

New Guinea.

Aircraft are listed as RAAF and have RAAF briefing, awards and ranks but appear as USAAF and have USAAF voices.

I wouldn't sweat this too much, JB---in my estimation it has grave problems. In the first mission you have about 15 G4M1s being escorted by 2 A6M1s and 2 Ki-43-Is. This is hyper-ridiculous. The Japanese Army and Navy never operated together, and the Navy would never send up so many of their precious (at this time they were rare) G4M1s with only four fighters for escort. It's a game-type campaign.

I thought IJA and IJN air units did operate together on very rare occasions -- very rare. Or at least "cooperated" somehow, if not fly as close as escorts/escorting. Not sure.

The only people that the IJA and IJN were more hostile to than the Americans were themselves. They really did not cooperate much until very late in the war when they had to.

They had their own supply chains, own guns, planes, ammo types, their own R&D divisions, land and sea forces. It was the ultimate rivalry.

The Osprey Japanese Aces book (Saikada) does, I believe, mention Ki-43s flying escort for D3As during the Buna campaign, but that sort of cooperation was rare. After the Army arrive in the Southwest Pacific and Buna fell, the Army took repsonsibility for New Guinea and southern New Britain, and the Navy for the Solomons.

Well the fighters never seem to make much of an effort to escort the bombers anyway. I was just wondering how to get back the Australian markings on the a/c short of re-installing an older version of PF.

I spent hours looking through the files but couldn't change the appearence of the default a/c.

I am at the stage where it might just be best to write my own campaign for it anyway I guess.

The IJA & IJN both took part in an attack on Calcutta in Dec '43.

Same thing happens in the RAAF NG campaign. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Yes, except this time it is USAAF markings on my a\c. Very annoying.

By the way 'I' (player) ended up with 14 kills before being wounded and sent to NG. 24 ground targets destroyed and enough gongs to play a rachmaniov piano concerto.

I dunno about the marking too much but I get Aussie voices in my RAAF campaigns. Sounds like there is an install problem. Maybe some files missing??

The problems is the RAAF squadrons added for the Singapore campaign are not present in the New Guinea campaign. If the player squadron is not present in a campaign, DGen the switches the player squadron to (what it believes to be) the most appropriate available same side squadron. In this case, a USAAF fighter squadron. To avoid this, use 75 Squadron for the New Guinea RAAF campaign.

Gosh I haven't posted here for months, anyway 30th, 75th, 76th and 77th Squadron RAAF shows correct markings. But another problem has popped up for me in the briefing which reads, "enemy planes are approaching from the northeast, presumably to attack us! Two P-40s under command of Squadron Leader Player will intercept them. The map waypoints shows a different story though, its a ground attack on the east of New Guinea at Milne Bay 400Km in almost the opposite direction.

Also I have found that when you replace pilot faces in the Dgen folger it does not work if you put it in the RA folder,you have to put it in the UN folder.

It is very disappointing that the high standards of craftsmanship and support offered by IL-2 have not extended to Pacific Fighters. It is for this reason I have decided not to bother with BoB and recent add-ons.

It is sad but I agree JacksonGhost...

I hear/read people talking about Bob:SoW as if it will be great but if the level off commitment and support that Il2 has witnessed is anything to go by then - well, count me out.

If anything summed it up it was the 1946 DVD. We had to buy 4.05 Pe-2 add on but the 1946 CD/DVD had that included. Talk about double dipping and ripping off your fan base.

Instead of sticking to a specific plane set and campaign files modelled on specifics we have to go through all this rubbish with each new patch.
