Default Interested in trying it, but how is it with the AI?

I'm really itching to try doing more than just cruising around the Caucasus in my lovely Spit, and I already have the WW2 Assets Pack, but as I would also need to buy Normandy for this campaign I want to make sure everything is worth the investment. At the moment I have two concerns:

1) Does the campaign run well? I.e., Are there any bugs, broken triggers, etc. that seem to crop up in campaigns and missions every time there's an Open Beta update?

2) How is it with the perfect-BFM-never-losing-energy AI that can do loop after loop after loop while you're stalling out and overheating engines left and right? Is it a "winnable" fight?

Hi Nealius,

Thank you for your interest in this campaign. Let me answer your questions:

1) Not that I know of. Some people have problems with the mission success criteria (surviving 10 minutes) - I updated the missions, the new versions are coming with the next OB release. I played the campaign on a less then perfect PC in VR and it was playable.

2) I made sure fights are winnable. I watched the dogfights unfold with AI only to make sure it's not a slaughterhouse.

Other players may have different points of view and can chip in.

Happy landings!

Awesome, thanks! I don't have any experience with DLC campaigns...are the missions updated in the DCS update packages just like modules and terrains are?

Yes, they are. Make sure you start by reading the pdf documentation in order to get the most out of it. Let me know if you encounter any problems or have any questions.
