We need your help to able to save the Pacific Fighter program.

I have do not have much to complain about the Eastern Front since it has been improved many times by many people. By now its very adequate and fun to fly with it.

I only wish more people were as dedicated to the Pacific Fitghter and try to improve and add more campaigns to both sides as they have done for the Fogotten front /Ace version. There even a Enhencer for the Forgotten/Ace Dgen engine that I posted a while back.

My main complain is with the Pacific Theater program. Its not that the campaings are short or only take a few days to complete. They do not have to bee 100% accurate but Historically plausable thats it. But having to be escorted by Wilcat while flying Hellcats in a campingn set for 1944 is not acceptable.

Nor flying for the INJ and escoritng other Zeros on a strike mission toward Midway in 1942.
Thats is simply wrong.

Thats the reason I went back to CFS2. What makes CFS2 the best Pacific Theater Simulator for me its the ability to build missions and the improvements made to it by many taletent people.

I was able to install Lowengrin Dynamics campaign Generator to it and that improved it from a boring pretty decent Simulator to a great one.

I would like to the same with the Pacific program but so far I have not able to install the Lowengrin DCG program to Pacific program.

In CFS2 it was quite easy once you understand that you needed to down size the CFS2 screen and go to the DCG engine craete the mission then go back and fly the mission.

With this program its a lot more complicated. I have tried every trick I now and nothing works.

When I think I have figure it out. I go to the DCG and try to root it to campaing I cannot find where to find it.

In CFS2 you but your campaigns folder inside the CFS2 campigns folder. From there you rout the Dcg back to it and choose the campaign you want to play. Thats it.

With this program I tried something similar trying to follow the instructuions and I connot get the campaign I want.

Perhaps one of you can help me out. I"am sure I"am not the only one.

this may save this program from extition. We need Oleg to fix this problem and we need a Dommy prove explanation on how to install the Lowengrin DCG brfore is to Late.

We also need involvement from the communitty in building Enhencement to the Dgen and to build Campaigs for both side like the community has done for the Forgotten/Ace program.

Your help will be apprecaited so we can save this program. Other wise we will only have one Simulator representing the Pacific air war.

Your participation needed and accepted!

Thank you

DCG only works with a merged install of PF and not stand-alone. For the merged install it installs exactly as it normally does only you are limited to the PF campaigns marked with an asterik. Low continually adds campaigns to the PF protion with each release. I'm currently flying am IJA campaign in 1943 and it's pretty good...

PF needs no saving. FB3.XX will be around and in full effect untill and for a while after BoB is released. If EAW and CFS can still survive theb I dont think this sim will have any problems. A year from now there will probably be dozens of great PF campaigns to choose from. I wouldnt sweat it.

@ MiamiEagle

Just wait and see what will happen before making a final judgement on PF. It is most definitely NOT finished. Oleg plans to hand it to third-party developers to continue it's support even after BOB is out.

One thing : PF is real right now. BOB is just vaporware. Until we actually have BOB installed in our PC's, questions and comments regarding PF are valid. Continue to hope for the best. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
