Hi,

After reading in some forums about guys who have managed single player careers of more than 100 missions I wanted to try to do the same. With very limited single player experience I was expecting true dynamic campaign mode.

So, I started the campaign and was fighting happily until I failed a escort mission and after returning to home base I was presented with only a refly-button.

I feel that there is little point of trying for a personal career record as there is always a chance of a career stopping mission that is so difficult it is impossible to be successfull.

Is this really like it is or am I missing something? Is there any way to get around this? I would like to continue the war even if I fail a mission objective. Like it is in real life.

Thanks.

TH

Start a new campaign. At the screen where you have the oppurtunity to select difficulty settings, turn off the "No Instant Success" setting. This will allow you to continue your campaign provide you survive and you're not captured behind enemy lines, regardless of mission outcome.

Wow, instahelp in just couple of minutes, thanks! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I always wondered what that option means, this clears it up in a good way. Good job.

I'll go and start a new career with the option disabled right away, thanks again.

You can keep playing your current campaign. However, you will need to edit the problem mission in the FMB. Change or delete the Primary Objective so that the mission is achievable. Set it to recon. This way you can still try the mission, but as long as you fly through the recon objective you can hit "Apply" and move on.

Good advice from Tully though. Campaigns should probably always be flown with the "No Instant Success" turned off.

You might also Try DCG. It will give you TRULY dynamic missions and you will se things like variable weather and variable time of day. However, it does take a little time to figure out how to set it up. But there are plenty of people who will be more than willing to help explain it to you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

On the downside, DCG is not quite as user friendly for new users so beware.

Both are good programs.

Yes, in fact, the way its named is misleading. the amount of times I`ve had to post to help people out on this over the 2 years... I often wonder how many people have flown the DGEN campaigns just to be put off when they can`t get past the odd impossible mission, even if they survive alive in friendly territory. Oleg should rename it or set its default to OFF. The really silly thing is it is MORE realistic off, yet the default realistic settings would have it on! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif It`s clearly a case where the user must use his brain rather than just accept what he is presented with on the overall settings.

Alternatively, DCG is an excellent (and even more realistic) alternative, but not as quick and easy to set up since it has to be manually added to FB.

I agree with "No Instant Success" to be off, since it produces many bad things in campaigns (for me this is the cause of at least 90% problems that I could have in campaign http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif).

I have survived many times and landed but couldn't hit refly. Let alone that when I bail I can immediately hit refly http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif (unless Mission: Completed message appears on center of the screen).

Now since I fly only DGen, when I am badly hit or I see I could not manage to any friendly airbase I hit refly. Crash landing at friendly ground isn't enough lol.
