    I have (hopefully) fixed all the reported problems with True Pacific DGen. If any new ones crop up, please let me know so I can fix them ASAP.

    Readme
    0.08
    Bug Fixes
    1. 318th FG campaign crashing when going from Pearl Harbor to Marinanas
    2. No USN escort missions in carrier campaigns
    3. Coral Sea Escort mission crash
    4. No USN non-CV anti-shipping strikes in Midway
    5. N1K2 not showing up in Defense of Japan

    Enhancements
    1. Changed Rufe Tulagi campaign to pre-Guadalcanal bomber intercept campaign (as is historical)
    2. Guadalcanal Invasion campaign improved (Japanese template, correct OB, correct skins)
    3. Edited most carrier campaigns to reduce as much as possible the "30 mile final" (because of how DGen does carrier and antishipping missions, this is problem cannot be eliminated completely).
    4. Added USMC campaign covering the defense of Wake Island before the Hiryu/Soryu carrier strike
    5. Added Eastern Solomons campaign (correct air OB, task forces forces semi-historical, based on default Santa Cruz template)
    6. D3A1s and sBD-3s have correct skins in Santa Cruz
    7. A6M2-21s and D3A1s have green skins in Marianas
    8. Reduced air OB numbers in .dat files 50% across the board (allows the player to have slightly more influence on the campaigns, and brings air OBs in line with ground and ship unit density)
    9. Ar-196A3 (as a stand in for the E13A2) added to campaigns featuring IJN cruisers/battleships as appropriate

    Nimits, What kind of system specs do you recomend for these campaigns? I tried an earlier version (0.04 maybe?) and the Pearl Harbor Mission was unplayable due to low frame rates, whereas on the stock campaign there was no problem, and I'm wondering whether I've screwed up the installation.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

    Well, I built it on my computer (AMD 64 3500+, 2 GB RAM, Geforce 6800GT) and tested it on my computer. Plus, I did increase the numbers of ships and aircraft for some campaigns to better approximate reality. If your specs are significantly lower, then some battles may unfortunately run more slowly.

    I was afraid of that, I guess I'll have to stick witht the stock campaigns until I build my SoW:BoB rig sometime next year.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

    Can't seem to generate a working P47 campaign for Japan, June 1945. I get the map with no course and no text in the window. If I click on arming nothing happens and for fly it loads only to say it doesn't have the map file.

    P51 version works but no text inthe window.

    USN fighter Wake October 1943 won't generate at all

    USMC fighter defense of Wake Island 1941 worked<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

    Wake Island was missing a a squadron (USA_BG_011z) from the OOB.

    As for Japan, I am not sure what to tell you. It is generating fine on my machine, with both the P-47 and P-51. Could post the DGenError.log you get after a Japan campaign?

    (P.S. If you have a campaign fail to generate, and then generate a good campaign after that, DGen will often display the briefing screen from the previous bad attempt).

    DGenError.log
    So where do I get that squadron and where/what is OOB?

    Fired the game on a fresh reboot, generated a P47 campaign with no map or text, click on fly I get...

    Mission loading failed: no map in mission file

    There is another called DGenError2.log but instead of 1kb it's 13kb. Let me know if that will help.
