    Sup guys,

    I have just installed Viper Over PG and resolved all errors and issues by tips online and on the PDF, still there are some doubts about functionality of this Mbot which I hope to clear and understand by your help:

    1-When I want to run the campaign for the first time, I need to start the FirstMission.bat file in Falcon Over PG in Saved Games folder and setup the campaign through the info I am given? Do I need to open this every time I want to open DCS and run the campaign or just the first time to generate the campaign.

    2-Why sometimes after I close or finish the mission I am stock on DCS logo? the CMD prompt window is opened in the back with a text document opened. I have already checked the "Disable Fullscreen Optimization" box. it seems like this CMD in the background is the procedure needs to be followed to have campaign stats saved but sometimes I have to forcefully quit DCS cuz its stuck.

    3-I read that these Mbot dynamic campaigns require me to survive so what if I died? I should quit and regenerate the campaign through FirstMission.bat file?

    Sorry about the long message but this is very unclear.

        Hi r0tary
        1- just the first time to generate the campaign.


        2-
        Look in the DCS log when this one is blocked, at the end of the file, you may have an info on the origin of the bug.


        If it still doesn't work, and you managed to go to mission 2, you can still generate the next missions via DEBUG_DebriefMission.bat (the 3 temporary missions (.lua) have to be present, next to it.


        3- no, juste generate a standard mission

        • - Give the name of the campaign
        • - Give the version of the script (saying the latest version is not enough, it is written at the beginning of the DOS window)

          as a MiG-21 fan, the TF-68 Fishbed 80s campaign interests me. anyone try it? sounds fun facing almost certain death trying to go head to head against F14's!

              Stay low.. and I do mean low. And it would be a mistake to head out to sea to meet them.. They have problems spotting you from down low. Just keep your radar off.

                Hi, I am trying to install this campaign: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.c...files/3309674/

                There is no script error. However, there is no campaign shows up in game.

                May I ask how to solve this? Thanks.

                  Hi

                  entry.lua is properly installed in the Saved Games\DCS (or OpenBeta) \Mods\tech\DCE folder?


                  Otherwise, show us a screen of your installation by expanding the tree on the left.

                        going to start a campaign tonight. reading through the manual, it doesn't say what to do after the first mission. once i run firstmission bat file, the next missions are automatically generated?

                        also, from rotary's questions above. what happens if you die? does it matter?

                        thanks for the info!

                          Hi,
                          When you have finished a mission, a DOS window invites you to generate a new mission (you can accept or refuse to replay the previous mission).

                          If you die, there's no direct impact. On the other hand, if you lose a significant number of aircraft from your squadron, you have lost the campaign.

                          So: don't die, or don't die often, and bring your plane back, and spare your wingers to bring their planes back as well...

                            I think yes? I was pulling my hairs out debugging this

                            I have also installed TF-18 campaign and it works fine. Probably only a bug in falcon campaign.

                              Okay I have fixed it. I tried to open .miz and it prompt me: YOU NEED PERSIAN GULF MODULE

                              ED somehow screwed up my persian gulf installation. After reinstalling PG module I am good now.

                                    Please give it to us NOW! It would be really fantastic to have robust support for more than 8 players.

                                      Hey all. Question about the Mig 21's in Georgia campaign against the USA. Campaign works great. No issues, however the GCI doesn't seem to see the F14's and F18's coming in. I kept asking for update and the GCI always said 100 or more miles away, but then the US aircraft were right on top of me. Just curious if something is off or if maybe the GCI cant see them?

                                      THanks!

                                        GCI normally gives distance in reference to Bullseye. If the Blues are right on top of you and GCI gives you a BRA of 270 for 120 at 20000, you are likely also about 120nm from Bullseye.

                                        I pratice looking for the bullseye before taking off just to make sure I don't get fooled by the distnaces given by GCI.
