    I would like to start a JAAF campaign but I am puzzled by some of the choices... I am pretty up to speed on the history of Palau in WW2, and not only that but I looked in my library and I cannot see any reference to the JAAF operating from Peleliu. Was this intended by the campaign creators? Is it something that a future patch may address, like the USMC P-39s at Wake? Overall I am pleased with PF even though it needs some work but what do you guys think about this?

    I will have to check on IJAAF disposition, but:

    For US Marine campaign fixes, have you tried installing the v3.01 or v3.01m patch yet? See sticky at top of forum.

    Chuck, yes I have installed the 3.01m and I think it is a very good patch. I can just about guarantee that JAAF never operated from Peleliu, and I would probably be just as confident in saying the same about Tarawa. I don't think I am being unreasonable... I have seen some of the threads with Starshoy and others about P-38s and New Guinea, so I know that people are concerned with historical accuracy for these campaigns.

    Some of the changes you see from the original release and the current patch was a result of direct feedback to the creator of DGEN the campaign generator. he hangs out at www.simhq.com his name user name is "Starshoy".

    he is open to listening and tweaking . You can also e-mail directly (dgen@rogers.com) but he might or might not respond depending on how busy he is.

    Ok I just posted and saw your repsonse, the new guniea thread I was personally involved in so you know about it then.

    Hope this helps.

    I never said you were unreasonable. I just didn't know if you had the latest version of PF. I don't recall seeing any USAAC or USAAF aircraft in my USMC campaign options since I have installed v3.01m, so I thought that may be your problem.

    I knew you weren't saying I was unreasonable, I meant that as a sort of disclaimer in general to anyone out there seeing my post who might think it was out of line, but I did not sense that from you Chuck. I guess it wasn't necessary at all because I have read enough posts around here to know that the the folks who are into PF/AEP/FB like myself are passionate about this sim, the subject matter and having it be the best that it can be. I will try to email Starshoy but the last few times I tried he didn't answer.

    Try Lowegrin's IL2DGC:

    A bit tricky to set up, and campaigns for many of the new maps are still in development. But it is way better than Starshoy's DGEN. And campaigns can be fully customized. You can ensure total historical accuracy if you want it.

    JAAF units were not stationed in Peleliu or Tarawa. They did serve in the South Pacific.

    Yes, JAAF at Palau and Tarawa is incorrect, but I think included since there is nowhere else to put a JAAF career between '42 and '45.

    For more JAAF careers, we'd need:

    China-Burma-India
    Later New Guinea map
    Phillipines
    Formosa
    Dutch East Indies
    Tokyo Area
