View Full Version : First Career Mission Not Completing? How Do I Finish Missions?

Hi all

I'm a new pilot, only recently discovering IL2.
After building my flight skills up for a while, I decided to try my hand at a 'Career'. However, I just cannot get the very first mission to complete.

Its a Russian career and the first mission is to down 4 Heinkel bombers. I do that no problem and the message appears 'Mission Complete'. Shortly after, some Junkers appear and I normally don't have enough ammo to finish them off. So leaving my wingmen flying around, I return to base and land.

But no matter what I do, turning the engine off etc. I just cannot get the mission to officially finish, therefor never able to move on to the next one. So frustrating!

What am I doing wrong?

Cheers,

First off...welcome to the game! You may want to look into hooking up an IV for sustenance and a cath if you're anything like me...

You have to actually hit escape and quit the mission, then hit accept or replay.

When you get tired of flying against the AI, look up the community of online fliers at HyperLobby (http://hyperfighter.jinak.cz). Download the HyperLobby Client (free) and login. You'll have fun learning how to fly against real people (who know all your tricks and probably have a few more up their sleeves)! Brings a new level of excitement to an already addictive and fascinating game!

Again, welcome!

Thanks for the speedy replay and the kind welcome to the community.

As regards the completing of missions, I feel like a bit of a fool for not seeing that 'Apply' button, though i don't think it's obvious that that is how a mission 'ends'.

Thanks for the pointer and the offer to dogfight some of you Aces http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Happy flying,

One other point of note, in the 'difficulty settings' (2nd page) there is an option called 'no instant mission success'. This means if it is clicked ('on', or lit up) that you MUST achieve the mission goals in order to advance, if it is not clicked ('off' or not lit up) then you may advance regardless of the outcome of the mission, unless you are killed or captured.
