I got done installing a couple of expansions last night and noticed that a couple of the Luftwaffe campaigns had gone *poof* and vanished.

I understand that this is a issue with the number of availible campaign slots and supposedly its easy to fix.....

question is how? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I would assume there is a file that needs editing to change the campaigns that are being listed in the carrer selection menu, can someone point me in the right direction?

1st, small mistake, got posted to the wrong forum! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

2nd, I figured out the problem. The missing campaigns have the same campaign identifier as some of the campaigns in the aftermarket addons I installed.

Checking \program files\ubi soft\il2 forgotten battles\dgen showed that the German campaign files were rather out of letters, so I had to hunt around and find an availble bit of the alphabet to rename the campaigns I wanted to keep, in particular the Ju88 campaign.

Since I make sure to backup DGEN before installing anything, I went to my backup and started going through campaign files. The original Ju88 campaign was listed as

*campaignDeD*

After checking, the DeD had been overwritten by a campaign from The Last Days. A quick scan of the other Luftwaffe campaigns showed that the only unused letter left was W (yikes!).

I copied the original Ju88 campaign and renamed it campaignDeW and dropped it back into the current DGEN folder and *presto* the Ju88 campaign was back! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now I am worred about what happens when I install Battle over Europe and Ostfront! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
