Hi all, with help from a few of our sim community, I have been hard at work on an authentic campaign that re-enacts the life of the JV44 "Sachsenberg Schwarm".

The scenarios are as close to authentic as I thought possible using the current crop of CPUs and the FB game engine, I even researched the weather from 1945 using B26 combat reports

So try it out and let me know what you think of the missions/campaign etc...

Thanks,

I normally scan the paint schemes forum, but I wanted to cross post this to the Gen discussion and mission builders also, as I spent 2.5 weeks making the campaign
let me know how you like it...

good night

Looks interesting, thanks - I'll give it a go.

It would be good if we had somewhere to host missions as IL2skins.com does with skins...

C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\Missions\Campaign\DE\jv44


are you sure you unzipped everythimg to a directory like that?
I just deleted my JV44 dir and reinstalled it, and it works.........

Yes that's exactly what I did. Except the folder for Il2 is not like this for me, but it's at the right place according to my install. I checked it manually too.

I am using the 1.1 patch, could it be the issue?

it shouldnt matter what version you have

as llong as the campaign is in a Missions\Campaign\DE\jv44 it should be available

you need the campaign ini file there too so
in your folder you need these files

info.properties
CAMPAIGN.INI
and ALL the MIS and Properties files for the missions

good luck

I found why.

I had named the folder JV 44 instead of jv44

I renamed it to jv44 and now it works.

Ty for the help and now I'm gonna try to fight for my virtual butt /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Nice one. Can't wait till we can replace the Pe8 with real B17s. The map looks quite ok to simulate the area.

What sucks is that the 4 Me262 in the first mission got slaughtered by the 4 Il2 they attacked resulting in the loss of all four 262 for the loss of only 1 Il2. Totally unrealistic IMO, but that's due to the game's 262 model and the Żber snipers.

I just retested it, and the 262s blew the IL2s to pieces ( like they should!)

There was a small error in 2 of the missions, April 4th and April 16th. I had forgotten to reapply the new skins that Rafiger made for Red 1 and Red 4. I uploaded 2 new missions as a small (16k or so) file to overwrite the old ones

Hum then the Me 262s got lucky when I played it. That's good to know. It's not like it couldn't happen a once in a while.

Whree is this White 61 skin that you say should be flown at the beginning of the campaign? Actually, I am TOTALLY confused....where is the Red 7 skin that you refer to??? The only "D11" skin in your odwnload package is Fw-190D11-JV44-Red4...

Totally confused.
