How to install 3rd Party Campaigns
Lowengrin Monday 28 May 2007

In the 3rd Party Campaigns Download Section of this website, you can find a number of campaigns designed by DCG enthusiasts. Most 3rd Party Campaigns can be installed following these simple instructions.

1. Download the campaign to your computer.
2. Unzip the contents of the download into a new folder within your main IL2DCG installation. (To do this, either create a new folder or make sure your unzip software creates a folder when decompressing the files).
3. If the contents of the download included a folder called DGEN, copy these files over to your game's DGEN folder. Note: be very careful about overwriting files in your DGEN folder as they may prohibit your from starting other DCG or DGEN campaigns. In fact, you may want to make a backup of this folder before adding 3rd Party Campaign files. There may be other files that need to be copied at this time. Consult the readme that accompanies the download for more information.
4. Run IL2DCG.
5. Under Files select Optional 3rd Party Data Folder. Browse to the campaign you wish to start and select the allcampaigns.dcg file to activate it.
6. If you wish to run a Career (DGen Replace Mode) campaign or On-line Campaign (NGen Replace Mode), check these now. If they are checked already, uncheck them and recheck them.

At this point, you should be able to run the 3rd Party Campaign just like any "stock" campaign. Please refer to the article on Modes for more information on running DCG in various methods of running DCG campaigns.

As for your squadron, assuming you are the squadron leader or lead flight leader, it doesn't matter to other flights. They'll still fly their assigned missions no matter what you want. Not sure there's a way around that.

I'm going to guess that Croydon is a prime target for the Luftwaffe (being an airfield?) so it will be heavily defended. If the Luftwaffe actually get through and damage it, it'll reduce it's popularity.

The other thing you can do, is add more targets elsewhere. Wagon8s are good distractions for the Luftwaffe bombers.

One more thing. I have 8 or more squadron aircraft on the runway at takeoff but I always end up with just my own flight of four. The rest seem to have a mind of their own.

My BoB campaign is progressing through testing. I've set the mission preference to "Defence" which works well although I keep getting "Protect Croydon", "Patrol Croydon", "Intercept bombers heading for Croydon". I'm using the Channel map with HSFX. I know that DCG wasn't designed for the mods but I don't think my missions always being Croydon has anything to do with that. Can you suggest something that would provide more "targets" than just Croydon? Thanks.

Hi tomaz. Try setting the all the JU52 armament to "default" (or "none") on the Aircraft Class Settings panel.

I'm progressing with a BoB online coop campaign. My JU52 "supply" plane despite being based in the middle of France seems to always spawn over England. What can I do to prevent this? Thanks.

All these years of using DCG and I never thought to do that, lol...

I just set the maximum flights to three in the General Campaign Settings window, and in the Squadron Editor window I set all the fighter squadrons to 8 aircraft, and left all the bomber squadrons at 16 aircraft.

Of course, the compromise is that I had to adjust the aircraft resupply rates so that one doesn't experience unrealistically depleted fighter squadrons on both sides as the campaign progresses.

Just wanted to set things up so that bomber formations of three flights would spawn, while at the same time spawning fighter formations of two just flights. Worked fine.

Thanks again!

Hi Treetop64. Indirectly, you set the number of flights by making the maximum number of planes in the squadron less. Try setting bomber squadrons to a max of 12 planes and you should only get three flights of them even though you set the global setting to four flights. This *should* work.

Hi, Paul. Glad to see you're still keeping the lights on here.

Wondering if there's any way to manually set up the number of spawned flights for individual squadrons, as opposed to the global option for all squadrons that is now available. For example, is there a way to set up fighter squadrons to spawn two flights of four aircraft and bomber squadrons to spawn three flights of three aircraft, and so on. Currently, the number of aircraft spawned in a flight can be adjusted per individual flight, but the number of spawned flights is fixed per user settigs and applies globally to all squadrons on the map.

Thanks again!

At this point, there's no way to set the take off feature, sorry.
