I'm flying a Beaufighter Campaign right now and have flown 6 missions. The problem is the missions keep repeating themselves. The first mission you fly the width of New Guinea and basically attack 2 Jap airfields and the second mission you fly tyhe length of New Guniea and attack a large amount of flak batteries...

Then the next mission, being the third mission is exactly the same as the first and the fourth mission is exactly the same as the second and so on and so on....Makes for a very boring Campaign!!!!

Is this a bug in the Dgen? I do have the Dgen patch installed....All the other campaigns seem to be running fine....Anyone else having this problem when playing the Beaufighter Campaign...I think I'm an Australian Pilot.

I find the same thing, it is rather boring isn't it. Especially as I have an A-20 and B-25 campaign going at the same time and it's exactly the same missions in those too! How about some anti-shipping torpedo runs for the Beau? It's the only torp. carrier we have in the PT at the moment and we don't even get a chance to use them! Crazy. Very little effort has been put into any of the PF campaigns. The is the first criticism I have made of any of Olegs products. Clearly a rushed product.

I am experiencing the same things. So I just let it generate the missions, go to the mission area, and then attack something more interesting (such as torpedoing those ships). It hasn't broken the back of Japanese resistance quite yet, though.

It is the same for my IJA campaign unfortunately. In New Guinea it was usually a scramble, or escorting bombers a long way to bomb the same spot over and over. Only once did I get a mission to intercept B-25s coming from Port Morsbery, but then I got wounded and let the campaign move on. Maybe I'm just not doing hidden things to unlock different missions. It is getting a little frustrating though with the scramble missions because your so heavily outnumbered. Just wish they weren't every other mission. Especially if you and the AA knocked most of em down a couple missions before.

Heh yeah its somethign i was *****ign about for a while mostly because the only bomber campaign are in New gunea and the missions for that map kind of suck.

Yes but the campaings in IL2 were fantastic...why can't they be in PF? Why are they just repeating the same boring missions over and over again?

Like ELEM said why can't 1 mission be a torpedo mission then a strafe atk, then a bomb attack..Why is the Dgen generating the same misssions over and over?? Doesn't make sence!!

While I think that was probably what the air war was like to some extent, there could be so much diversity in Beaufighter campaigns.

What about the battle of Milne Bay where the planes were firing their guns before their gears had retracted?

well, I think we just need to wait for Oleg and the development team to have a chance to build some campaigns and more diversity. I mean, you can't always expect gamess to be perfect and the way you want them to be when you buy them. Did ne of you guys ever try playing WW2 ONLINE in the first YEAR? That game was horrible and took a lot of time to fix. I don't even know if it is fixed still. So, just calm yourselves for now and let Oleg, the development team and some third party people get working on adding new content. Until then, you can always play online right. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

LOL - in Il-2 people were complaining nonstop about the scripted limited campaigns, and wanting a dynamic campaign where your actions make a difference! Now we have the dynamic campaign, people complain nonstop about it!

Oh, and if you change the squadron when you start the campaign, I think you get different missions.
