UQMG for IL2FB UPGRADE 4.3.7! Patch 2.01/2.02 Edition

Dear UQMG users from the IL-2 FB Community,

I am extremely excited to announce the immediate availability of the most exciting UQMG upgrade to date, not only it brings all new features of patch 2.01/2.02 for IL-2 FB AEP, it provides every upgrade released for UQMG to date. It is free, of course, and will bring your UQMG to version 4.3.7. The total number of updates and new features are too many describe, so I will highlight the most important ones below. All in all, IL-2 FB will bring you now more enjoyment than ever with the new features in UQMG.

* This patch represents a culmination of my work. As of this patch, UQMG contains single, coop and dogfight mission templates/types for EVERY SINGLE map ever released for IL-2, IL-2 FB, IL-2 FB with AEP upgrade, and all patches/updates/upgrades (totalling 43 maps). The summary of remaining and new maps previously unreleased in UQMG are as follows:
+ Africa/Desert/Mediterranean - 3 mission types
+ Crimea - 8 mission types
+ Normandy Simple - 3 mission types
+ Normandy w/ Small Bases - 3 mission types
+ Net 8a "Few Trees Pacific Islands" - 8 mission types
+ Net 9a "Small Arena" (4 different maps) - 3 mission types
+ Net 10a "Flat Net2" (4 different maps) - 8 mission types
+ Net 11a "Flat Net1" (2 different maps) - 14 mission types

* Bonus: Added new improved versions of QMB templates to both Pacific Island maps, equaling 7 additional mission types, or a total of 8 mission types for those templates.

* UQMG is now 100% compatible with every new feature in the IL-2 Ace Expansion Pack (AEP) and patches 2.01 and 2.02:
+ All new aircraft and their weapon loads
+ ALL new maps

* 47 New sample uqmg data missions to get you going with the new features. The missions are located in the "save\upgrd0007" and are organized by map.

* A very late thanks to J.W. ,aka "clint-ruin" from the UbiSoft IL-2 forum for providing me the vast majority of the new weapons codes and aircraft codes for the previous upgrade.

* A humble thanks to authors Denes Bernard, and George Punka whose works on the Rumanian and Hungarian Air Forces (respectively) allowed me to correct my database for aircraft included for those countries.

* A humble thanks to authors Yefin Gordon and Dmitri Khazanov for their works on WW2 Soviet Aircraft which allowed me to include some good facts in some of my sample missions.

* A humble thanks to authors Bill Gunston and David Mondey for their excellent reference works on WW2 aircraft that allowed me to correct my database for aircraft included for several countries.

* LIMITATION: Patch 2.02, or the currently "leaked" patch introduces one new feature, namely two bomb ordinances for the Hurricane II.b. Since many people have not chosen to use this patch, there is only one sample "uqmg data file" mission that uses that feature. Simply don't use the two bombloads for compatibility with patch 2.01.

* Several other engine improvements and corrections which are too many to state, plus all previous upgrades to date.

To install this upgrade:
========================
* Download WinZIP file from http://www.uberdemon.com
* UnZIP it in the directory you installed UQMG for IL2 FB (most likely "c:\program files\uberquickfb"). Best way to do that is to Right Click on the zip file and then go to the Winzip options, then select "Extract Here".
* Start UQMG as usual.
* ONLY INSTALL UPGRADE AFTER YOU'VE RUN THE ORIGINAL UQMG INSTALLATION SUCCESSFULLY AND PLAYED AT LEAST ONE UQMG GENERATED MISSION IN IL-2 FB!!!! IF YOU INSTALL UPGRADE BEFORE YOU RUN UQMG, IT WILL NEVER WORK. If you do that you will need to uninstall UQMG from the Windows Control Panel, then manually erase the UQMG directory, then you will need to re-install it, go through every step without skipping anything, then run it, follow instructions when running, generate a mission, if successful then install upgrade. Needless to say, read the instructions.
* If you get asked to overwrite a file, say "Yes to All".

I, for one, was also looking forward to this new version, but sadly will not use it. Reason being : support for the 2.02 "non-patch" which 1C is not even acknowledging bug reports. I'm disappointed that UQMG has joined Hyperlobby (among others) for supporting 2.02 and by default ensuring continued use of this leak, which in turn has led to confusion online and a cheating loophole. I am grateful for your product UberDemon but I'm sorry I can't just bring myself to download this version.

Maybe the next version of UQMG will support 2.03, forget about 2.02 and bring "everybody home" to one version. I will then be more than happy to download and use it to my heart's content.

Hello Capt Tenneal,

I need to explain what support means in UQMG. UQMG as a mission generator does not do anything abnormal to the functioning of IL-2 and its engine. In other words, because UQMG "supports" 2.02, it does not mean that suddenly your IL2/AEP is in that version. The only thing that it does that supports that patch is adding the ability for the Hurricane II.b to carry bombs. That in itself is a simple line of text that goes into a mission file.

So, if you generated a mission with that Hurricane in patch 2.01... all it would do is it would tell you that the 100Kg or 220lb cannot be loaded in that plane and you would not be able to play the mission. That is all.

In other words, UQMG does not affect what patch you have, and the patch you have does not affect UQMG. Other than that, this UQMG upgrade is really only a patch 2.01 upgrade, because there are no other features. I added those two bombloads as a bonus, and in reality, as a time saver for me and the users.

As it is, the upgrade is 6.5Megs. It would be inconvenient for low bandwidth users to add another upgrade for 2.02 official patch for two simple additional lines of text that anyone can change manually anyway. Again, simply do not use the Hurricane bombloads until the next patch and you are good to go. That is the ONLY thing that 2.02 support really means, and nothing else.

I hope this makes sense, and does not discourage you from uploading this upgrade which finally brings my UQMG objectives to an end: All maps included.

Best Regards, and I hope I cleared this for you.

Many, many thanks.

* p-39driver,

Thank you as well. I think that my reply to Capt Tenneal should clear up any confusion I may have caused.

* tsisqua,

Thank you so much for your continued support.

* DeerHunterUK

Thank you. It is "Il-4" (lower case 'L') in the mission and not "IL-4" (upper case 'L'), as in the skins directory; that is all.

Again, thank you all for your continuing support.

Your reply is noted UberDemon. I just had to air my thoughts on this as "2.02" is such a sensitive issue for FB-AEP users. Despite that, I'll never push you to change UQMG to something you do not want (unlike the pressure Oleg must face everyday to alter FB-AEP). I don't have that power. All I have is the choice of whether to use it or not. Others are free to use it as they see fit. Thank you for your hard work producing this utility.

I'll give this new version a go, and (off-topic) I hope the 2.03 patch is just around the corner so we could all forget this 2.02 business.
