Well if its anything like the default Dgen that comes with the game, this is a quote from the FB booklet.

"Every career consists of campaigns(Lvov, Smolensk, Moscow, ets.). A typical campaign consists of approxomately 30 missions and a carrer includes 4-8 campaigns, or 100-250 missions."

"Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary force:
You are about to embark upon a Great Crusade toward which we have strived these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking" - Gen. Dwight D. Eiseinhower-Supreme Allied Commander.

Is this Lowengrin`s DCG you`re talking about? Since you say DCG not Dgen.

It can be as many as 500! Check the DCG settings.

wow! I just checked my 2.62 DCG and there`s no campaign mission limit any more. There used to be in previous versions! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif All I can suggest is go to Lowengrin`s site and ask what the limit is - maybe it`s random now. I may also go and ask myself.

If i understand well how DCG work, your campaign will continue until one of the supply point of one side is taken by ennemy forces. It can happen quickly if you are successful in all of your mission, or not so quickly if you are... Well, not so successful...

And about dGen; is it creating completely random length or is there some kind of pattern? And how to affect it, if it is controllable?

I'm asking these qt's 'cause I know that there's a way to edit dGen via conf.ini, but do not understand it's pattern. Seems pretty linear to me (although I may be wrong) as far as length of campaign is concerned. I fly '41 Finnish subcampaign twice, and took exactly 50 missions to complete it both times. Also, RU fighter Leningrad took me 37 (maybe 38 not sure about this one) missions through '41 subcampaign. I play it again and I'm on 25 mission out of probably 37. Then I will know for sure. If I'm right then every campaign have exact number of missions. I hope I'm wrong....
