Thanks for the link, downloading now. I've been putting-off messing with all those dgen files, this will hopefully make it much easier.

Since installing the updated DGen files I'm getting the BEEP too, but only for NWE campagains The Burma campaigns work fine. I was stupid though, I didn't back up...doh!

I just checked this against a clean 1946 install and yes I'm getting the beep error on NWE too. I have the necessary files to fix this and will make another comprehensive file this evening. Sorry for the inconveniece! Check back in about 10 hours (I'm off to work).

fairly new to the sim -just about to tackle a campaign after a lot of practice. At the moment I have fb & pf 4.04m. I never read anywhere about DGen updates - do I need them ? and what do they do?

Here's seems to be the fix for all of the beeping. Go to your DGen folder and delete the file labeled 'EuroPlanes.dat'. Everything should now work properly.

All DGen updates have been posted over at SimHQ over the past year or so by Ian Boys. The enhancements include new campaigns for Italy, the North-West Europe map and the Burma map. These updates have included approximately 10 different files.

I created this file orginally for my own personal use as a means to combine all these updates into one file for archival purposes. After I made it I figured the rest of the IL-2 community would appreciate it too.

I guarantee you that all your stock DGen campaigns will work. Italian, NWEurope wont, but you can start to patch it up again so those will work too.
I haven't included graphical files in DGen folder, so you have to save those but delete everything else and replace it with the content of this .zip:

Good luck.

But first, try what Raz_Bama said.

I am assuming you are refering to the work done by Enjoyr. Remember there are campaigns specifically for Battle over Europe, The Last Days and Ostfront.If you don't have the add-on it won't work. I am assuming that NWE is part of the BoE.

Thanks Raz_Bama and DKoor,

I've just got into work so I won't be able to try this for 12 hours...I'll let you know how I get on

NWE was designed by Ian Boys and Starshoy for public consumption. Same is true for the Itallian and Burma campaigns.

I've gotten pretty much everything to work. I have BOE, Ostfront and Operation Barbarossa working SO FAR. I don't know where the Italian DGens and Africa Dgens come from, I don't have them as any part of any DGen package I have picked up from SimHQ. (Note: No joy on the JU-88 campaign, either.)

I didn't download the Europlanes.dat file because I must confess I'm a little leery of overwriting all of those files.

One thing that I get a BEEP on that should work is the RAF BOE B-25 campaign. I think this may be because the BOE AEP patch posted on Airwarfare will not download. I get a message that says "Cannot Find Copy Of AEP". Strange. I thought '46 was all inclusive.

So, I'm fairly happy. Murmansk and Kurland both work and include the Pe-2 and Pe-3. I have about 30 campaigns going, so I can't complain. I could not complete those campaigns in a lifetime.

Another odd thing (about me, I suppose), I have no desire at all to mess with any of the new stuff. I haven't even played around with any of it.

Thanks, Raz_Bama, I deleted 'EuroPlanes.dat' and now everything works, I really appreciate the support. Trouble is, I've already got into a Burma campaign so it'll be a while before I try out the Tempest in NWE!
