Wow it's been over seven years since we released the Battle over Britain campaign!

So I've reworked it to make use of Cannon's Channel map. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">This was the first RAF campaign for Forgotten Battles originally released in January 2004.

Now converted to play out on Cannon's Channel Map and containing various improvements and bug-fixes over the original

Starting out as a rookie pilot taking control of the Hawker Hurricane for the first time you will undergo some basic training flights before becoming one of 'The Few'

** 26 missions following No 85 Squadron for the year between August 1939 and August 1940 ***

(the original campaign that used the Finland map to approximate the Channel had over 50 missions)</pre>

Have a beer on me!

That said, I am looking forward to playing this. I am a big fan of your work mate!

Keep up the good work. You campaign makers and moders add extended life to this sim.

Updated to version 1.1 (http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=830) to re-apply a missing audio file that had somehow become detached from a mission briefing.

If you don't want to download the entire package but wish to make the change simply open Hurricane_23b.mis in notepad and add the following line after [Main]

BriefSound Missions/Campaign/GB/BoverB-Redux/sound/Winston.wav

<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">[MAIN]
BriefSound Missions/Campaign/GB/BoverB-Redux/sound/Winston.wav
MAP CAN_EnglishChannel/1940load.ini
...</pre>

Updated to version 1.2 (http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=830) to mend a broken skin and tweak a mission slightly.

If you have previously downloaded and installed you can simply download the hotfix file and install over previous version.

Extreme_One,

I had to delete and reload il2, and updated through 4.10.1m w/o mods. My previous version was 4.09m with UP2.01. I lost Battle over Britain Redux, and can't get the new version 1.3 to run. The error message is something about a missing CAN Channel Map.ini

What can I do?

After finishing all 25 missions before that reloading, I now get to do them all over again. But, this time I'm a little older, and a little wiser. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks,

binky9

Thank you for bumping this thread.

Just want to say thank you to the creator of this campaign before I go to bed - I installed it and tried it instantly. Missions 1 and 2 are fantastic - really gave me a chance to get reacquainted with the Hurricane - outclassed, but always a favourite - and also a chance to spend some time on Canons map, which i've always enjoyed. Looking forward to the combat part of the campaign.

I'm especially grateful, because i'm one of the unfortunates (or is that fortunate?) who can't afford a new system for CloD just yet. This campaign will satisfy my Battle of Britain desires. Truly - IL2 '46 with mods/Canon Channel map is a fantastic experience, and visually, not too far off CloD. This campaign is a testament to that.

Also, the skins you've included are excellent - my compliments to the skinner.

You must run a modded install to play this campaign. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

New to the BoB campaign. May I ask a question in order to avoid an error.
My Il-2 is patched to 4.10.1. In order to add this cammpaign, I must:
1. Install BoB_Redux 1.3; then
2. Install BoB_Redux-4.10.X+Patch
Is this correct?
Also, which BoB folders do I install into the campaign folder- "BoverB-Redux" or "GB" (then overwrite)?
Thanks for any help.

You need a modded install.

Check the info on the download page which will tell you about the required mods.

you extract the zip file(s) into your IL21946 folder and the campaign files, skins etc will be copied across to the correct places.

I went back and reviewed download page where the patch info and instructions appear. Perhaps I am missing something, but I see nothing regarding modding. Is there something else to consult in this regard? Thanks.
Perhaps I don not understand what a modded versio of 4.10x means.
