Hi, sorry to hear you're having trouble!


I've looked at the mission to see if I can replicate but can't spot any issue:
  • Briefing images are present
  • Push time is mentioned twice in briefing text
  • Push time is also mentioned by Focus upon leaving the carrier, and then a push message is given at the time of push.
See images attached.



It's possible that whatever edits made to the mission to change to multiplayer has broken something - can you give me a bit more information if you're still struggling?



Thanks

Is this campaign using hot starts or cold starts?

Hot starts through all.


Can probably edit to cold starts however this would throw off some of the mission timings. Could maybe do a cold-start version in future release, TBC.

Bummer, that's another campaign I won't be able to enjoy then. I absolutly hate skipping startup and just editing the aircraft to cold start often doesn't work very well because of the timings (especially with the Tomcat where a carrier alignment can take up to 12 minutes), unless it's all triggered.

I really hope you can do a cold-start version or someone else comes up with a cold start campaign.

I can make a quick attempt to modify to cold start, as long as you would be kind enough to playtest and feed back?

From cold start to carrier launch, how many minutes would you normally require?

About 15 minutes: 10-12 minutes for alignment + general aircraft startup.

Ok, give this a go - I've tried to make this timing-neutral (generally the relevant craft will spawn after you take off).


I've not playtested these missions - can you please feed back any issues you find?

Thanks a lot! Will test it and let you know how it went.

That might have to wait till the weekend though, depending on when I will find the time to do that.

Just tested the first mission with Cold Start (and multicrewing). Worked like a charm! Thanks a lot!

I will fly the rest of the campaign with multicrewing as well, maybe even with an additional player crewed Tomcat. It's great fun!
