I just started a career as a aussie beaufighter pilot ONLY to see all aircraft (AI) in my squadron (about 8) fly into a mountain!!! .. half way up!!!

someone hasn't tested the PNG map AI very much

Hi,

it's a bug in DGEN I think. When you download the DGEN 3.11 it doesn't happen anymore.

D/L and install the 3.11 DGEN beta. It fixes it.

One thing to tell the good fellow to get DGEN 3.11 beta and another to let him know where it is http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Destroyer110 - you can find the DGEN 3.11 beta (corrected files for the game's included Dynamic Campaign Generator, fixes the AI v Mountain thing) here:
ftp://ftp.ubi.com/emea/pf/downloads/DGen/DGenBeta311.zip

If that link doesn't work then go into the news archive (link is on the il2 home page top left) and select October - the info item and links are at the bottom of the page.

Note this update for DGEN does not change the version of your game - it is just a zip archive with some new and updated files for the DGEN portion of your install.

Salute

Athos

Still doesn't work even with new DGEN.

SPLAT! SPLAT! SPLAT! SPLAT! SPLAT! .. etc

Formation flying into a steep PNG mountain.

Try it for yourself, start a career as an Aussie pilot. Your first mission will be your last .. including the rest of your squadron! LOL!!

Fixed that problem for me they no longer crash into the countryside unless they get shot down of course.

Something may not be right with your install of DGEN 3.11 - Beaufighters in New Guinea was my first campaign in PF, still going with no formation lawn darts.

I've checked it but all the new degen stuff is there?

When you fly the Aussie Beaufighter campaign, they climb over a low mountain ok but then face a horse-shoe shaped, steep mountain which they just fly into!

how do your beaufighters go with the horse-shoe mountain?

Aha!!! Would I be right in guessing that you are still playing the same campaign you started with the old DGEN?
After each mission DGEN writes the new one - which will include waypoints etc. You either have to get past that mission so the new DGEN builds a corrected flight path or restart the campaign.
