Set up dgen_a_singapore2 (imperial Japanese Fighter Campaign)
Singapore2 KI_43_IC
NewGuinea KI_43_II
Tarawa KI_43_IIKAI
Palau KI_61_IKO
Iwo KI_61_IHEI
Okinawa KI_84_IB
Japan1 KI_100_IKO

Got to mid dec in New Guinea and about 90 missions done then the war ended and I had that escort Yamamoto mission then war ended
Got as much info as I could from the find function and could only find 2 related articles,
the 1st being a similar incident surprising someone else and the other was the readme info for PF which gave me this info:

In Pacific Fighters dynamic campaigns the player's actions influence the outcome of individual operations as well as the whole war. The system works by assigning a static number of points to each target destroyed, and calculating a total number of points for each side. If your side destroys enemy targets, points are added to your side's tally. If your side's targets are destroyed by the enemy, the points are subtracted from your side's tally.

The following point values are used:
Carrier = 100 points
Other ship = 20 points
Plane = 5 points
Tank = 3 points
All other targets = 1 point

The tallies are recalculated after each mission, and they're checked at the end of each operation. Each side is assigned a predetermined number of points which in each operation means a historical outcome (victory or defeat). If the operation's tally does not match the historical outcome, an alternative briefing is triggered which may mean a defeat for the side that historically won, or vice versa.

The grand total tally of multiple campaigns can also lead to an alternate outcome of the whole war.

Default value for an operation outcome is 100 points (added if it's a victory, subtracted if it's a defeat). War outcome's value is 1,000 points.

You can change these values by adding and modifying the following lines in the conf.ini file located in your root game folder:

OperationVictory=100
OperationDefeat=-100
WarVictory=1000
WarDefeat=-1000

These are default values. You can change the numbers to your liking. For example, if you want mission outcome to always be historical, you can set the parameters to unachievable high values, such as

OperationVictory=3000
OperationDefeat=-3000
WarVictory=30000
WarDefeat=-30000

By reducing the numbers you can make your contributions matter much more in the overall war effort.

I have never heard anything about this before http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif Does this affect all PF campaigns regardless of them being DGEN user made or vanilla? Where it says:

Silly question maybe but to confirm does that mean I have to add these lines to the bottom of
my conf.ini file?

Does this edit result in effect non PF campaigns?

I had approx 30000 points when this last campaign ended, what amount should I set to get from start to finish '41-'45?

Hope you chaps can help with this one, that
Ki43II was hard work and was looking forward to advancing out of it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

There should be a tweaking manual, and this should be in it.

It's in the readme file. There's quite a bit of interesting info in that file, BTW.

Yes. There are actually a few different commands that you can add to the conf.ini file
For an explaination of what some of these do, go Here (http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Knowledge_Base&op=show&kid=28)

From what I've heard, this only affects PF campaigns.

Set the values as high as you want. Try 100,000 if you want.
