Alright, could someone give me a quick rundown of the pros and cons of both Lowengrin's DCG 3.0 and the revamped in-game DGen?

Thanks.

Ack...that could be a long post.....

Wish I could help you out, but I wouldn't know where to start. It's a small DL, try it out. Not to hard to get the basic set up going, once you start getting into customizing your campaigns it get's a bit tricky for some. But well worth the time....

Downloaded it and I think I got it set up correctly (seemed to work generating a new German fighter campaign), BUT

For some reason it does not seem to want to let me create a campaign to fly a BF-110 - every time I try to select either of the BF-110 variants it gives me a message that this plane type is not flyable (i.e., AI only), even though the 110 became flyable somewhere back in AEP.

Any ideas whether this is a bug in the DCG or if there is some other trick to being able to use the BF-110 in a campaign with this tool?

Hi,

It's another DCG which permits you to be a bit more active in determining what goes on via a nice windows interface; i.e. types of missions/night missions/squadron aircraft/aircraft upgrades & downgrades depending on performance etc etc

DGEN may permit the same sort of thing but I've repeatedly asked for documentation on this for PF and had no reply now for several weeks; there's one reason for DCG being much better for starters.

Try it. It can be a little counter-intuitive at first but it's worth persevering with.

Cheers,
norris

I guess make sure the variant your trying to use was indeed flyable....and try switching off "realistic aircraft dates"

Only Bf 110G is flyable. You can't fly in a Bf 110C.

Thanks guys - that was it - I had forgotten that only the G version was flyable - and I wasn't seeing the G version as a plane choice because I was trying to start in '41 and the G version is apparently a '42 variant. I just picked a '42 campaign start and there was the Bf-110-G. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now just need to figure out why it crashed the program with a "wrong file name" DCG error after I applied the 2nd mission http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
