Our group (MOG) has recently switched to IL2 Sturmovik 1946. As we are die hard mission flyers we keep track of our scores, but to have that fully automated in and to a database we would like to know where the aircraft codes are coming from and which code belongs to which aircraft, as they appear in the "eventlog.lst" file.
Greetings

If it's what I think you're talking about (the code letters on the sides of the planes) it is a determined by squadron, flight and plane. How these appear differs with each nationality, plus several of the US planes are stuck with 3-digit numerical codes (001, 002, etc) instead of the more realistic (for Europe, anyway) 3-character alphanumeric codes (B6-A, WD-H, etc.)

Try Mission Log Reader (http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=357) or Sturmolog (http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=353).

If you haven't already hit the Essentials link in my sig and also the link to the M4T Data/Files sections..

I'm not sure how it's done but there are ways if you set up a dedicated server using either server commander or server deamon for it to gather all kinds of stats and even post them to a web page. NORAD squadron has a really nifty realtime stats page for our dedicated server.

Some clarification on Shooter post's. We already have a Dedicated Dogfight Server running with FBDaemon II stats and matching web pages..However, the COOP side is what is not going so smoothly. Since there is no Dedidated Coop Server as per say, we have to resort to mission hosting on members pc's. We already explored Mission Log Reader and Sturmolog, but unfortunately, it will not do. The output is html and would involve manual compiling of those pages. We fly hundreds of sorties per week as we have members from around the globe.

We also looked at other solution like IL-2 Manager, which looked promising but seems to be quite old (2004) with no recent update and the PHP script non-functioning..

So it leaves us with creating our on software. I will write the log parser quite easily once an equivalence between the Aircraft Codes from the log files and the actual Aircraft name is established. The rest is fairly simple, i.e. storing the data into databases tables and making the web pages.

So we were hoping to find a list of the aircraft names with their «mission builder codes»...

Any help would be greatly apreciated.

Thank you.

If no one here can come up with the answer maybe try over at AAA, I bet those wizards can figure it out.

Yanickg and Shooter, if your project is that big, I suggest you contact listmember rnzoli and see if he can help out at all. He has developed a dedicated coop server which also tracks stats. I don't know if he is still installing those anymore, but may be able to provide some input.

Here is a recent post by him on coop stats:

And here is his webpage about his Dedicated Coop controller and list of existing servers:
