View Full Version : continuing a campaign after reinstall

04-26-2005, 08:00 PM
What are the steps to continue playing a campaign from where you left off? I saved the "dgen_1_wakedoe0" folder that was found in the missions->campaign->IN folder before i uninstalled the game. The folder mentioned is the only thing that I saved other than settings.ini. I pasted "dgen_1_wakedoe0" folder back into the IN campaign folder but this career does not appear inside the campaign listings. Is there something that I missed when I saved my files before the reinstall? Or are there more steps that need to be done(such as reboot cmput) before I can continue playing my campaign from where I left off. Or am I screwed and have to start all over again?

I did the same thing when I installed PF, and my campaign won't work either. 46 missions in the Finland campaign! Now I have to start over with the Gladiator again.

Maybe somebody else can tell you different, but I'd say, we're both screwed. Starting over from mission number one......

You should save the folder that you have already saved, but "users" folder under main IL-2 folder too. Then copy paste those two. Without that it won't work.

Sorry guys..

Unfortunately, your pilot files are in the "User" folder.

The best advice on a re-install is to put it in another folder so you still have all your files intact in the original installation, or burn a CD with all your files on it beforehand.

Maybe a sticky with what to save before a re-install would be a good idea? Mods?
