Nordic Battle - Viggen DCE campaign


Recommended Posts

I've tried get it to work in 1.5, but I'm confused with all the changes.

Can somebody please upload it for 1.5?

/thanx

 

I have now reinstalled my DCS, and are now using the "normal" folder name DCS world (instead of DCS World OpenBeta), and uploaded a new version. So it should work if your game is installed to a folder named DCS World

 

If it is installed to DCS World OpenBeta, the files mentioned above must be altered

Great work! I've flown a few missions now and I'm finding it really enjoyable.

 

Just wondering - are BK-90's functional in the campaign mode? I landed 4 of the MJ1/Mj2 mix type (which does great damage in normal single player) on top of a SA-6 site and I saw the explosions. However - no damage was accounted for and when looking at the replay in Tacview no damage nor impacts were recorded. The Bk 90's just kept flying for a minute or so before self destructing.

 

I know Bk-90's are semi-broken in multiplayer and even in SP missions the player doesn't get accounted for damage done using Bk-90's. Do you know if the Bk-90's work in DCE campaigns?

1 FPS only in this mission

 

I have tried other DCE campaigns, and they haven't had this problem.

 

With this campaign, I start in cockpit, but I have 1 FPS, and the game is unplayable.

 

I have waited for a while, to see if there are just bunches of vehicles spawning or lots of scripts running at start of mission, but FPS never improves.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks!

First of all thanks for this campaign.

 

I restarterted 4 weeks ago playing dcs and i choosen to spend some time on a strike bird so i am playing this dynamic nordic asset.

 

I feel noob so i have a question: how do you make your flight attack mission objective?

When i am flight leader and we are attacking sochi airbase i cant make other AI guys to drop their bombs on hangars etc etc. I dont remember how to order that (sort of weapon free commnad!), and "go task mission and rejoin" made nothing happens :D.

 

The second is more a consideration: usually strike flight packages split their routes before ingress points to reach the target from different angles but on the same time, rejoining in the egress. I've done 4 missions and this sort of plan is not imlemented, probably becouse it is a pain to implement.

 

Btw you should give some more backgound to the campaign story itself.

Anyway i like the feeling this stuff si giving to me.

I'll buy you a :beer:

Hey Riverseeker,

 

Unfortunately you cannot command the AI wingman to attack the structures, AFAIK; your best bet is to tell them to engage air defenses or ground units to help cover you while you bomb the buildings.

 

Likewise, you cannot implement advanced attack strategies like the one you describe...best bet is to find some other people to fly with! Then you can get into all that cool stuff. :)

I actually had the same issue with other DCE campaigns. Apparently, Civilian Traffic got broken in a recent patch...that added with all the static A/C kills FPS. I turned Civilian Traffic off, and everything was back to normal.

 

That did the trick, many thanks!

Well, sometimes AI accept to attack predefine ground targets like control tower or ammunition dump. You have to order him to do the mission and then rejoin when your flight reach the IP point. To make a simple strategy, it is possible to give orders to 3 and 4 and then with number two you can try to speed up to use different attack angle. With a little luck you can be on target at the same time than 3 and 4 ;) Not perfect solution but better than nothing :music_whistling:

Well at the moment i am bombing sochi airbase and is taking ages doing it just by myself but with other 3 AI Viggen just looking a the sky...

 

4 AJ interdction could had crushed that straight to 40% 50% or even less

 

I am stuck with that and it sucks a bit but not too much. It's still fully enjoyable experience!

Last time i send them RTB straight after B1.

 

:doh:

 

On sead mission its a different story :thumbup:

You can sit down and watch them blowing up stuff

BTW whatching your AI escort doing his job is fun, even if it was expected.

 

But landing and taxing to the parking spot while your sams/interceptor are running against enemy su25 and mig 29 has no price... just becouse it was totally unexpected (and a bit scary too, but for the sake of curiosity i've not insta-ended the mix)

 

:cry:

I see you have low FPS as a known issue, but that it hasn't been a problewm for you. I just tried this campaign and I'm getting no more than 3-4 FPS, normally i have it stable around 50-60 no issues. Any thoughts? Even when the F10 map is open i get just 2 FPS. xD

I beg to differ, sort of. The DCE sets "Attack Map Object" targetpoints on every target building so the AI should actually drop bombs on targeted buildings and structures if you command them to "engage mission and rejoin".

If put in other folders, some files has to be edited.

 

FirstMission.bat

The numbers of ..\ For example if the EN folder is missing, the campaign folder is "one step" closer to the main DCS folders, and one of the ..\ has to be removed. The same thing goes with the SkipMission.bat file.

 

Nordic Battle.cmp This is the campaign file, and there are a path on four places in it. Open it with notepad++ and correct the paths.

 

camp_init.lua in the init folder. Edit it with notepad++

There is a path to the campaign folder there.

 

I think that´s all files that has to be edited

 

I got it working. Thanks for the pointer. For anyone at home, the list of files which require changes:

 

1. Nordic Battle.cmp (change the path in all four places)

2. Nordic Battle/FirstMission.bat (change the path to correctly point at DCS/bin/luae.exe)

3. Nordic Battle/SkipMission.bat (change the path to correctly point at DCS/bin/luae.exe)

4. Nordic Battle/Init/camp_init.lua (change the path at the top)

5. Nordic Battle/Status/camp_status.lua (change the path at the top)

 

Thanks also for putting this together! All I have to do now is figure out how the radio works.

 

Thank you! Could you please edit your first message so other users can fix that without too much hassle?

 

I'm going to try that this weekend with some friends!

Looking forward to playing this as I've just done the Viggen Red Flag campaign.

 

 

But my goodness has it caused me troubles. I just couldn't get it running. Spent a couple of hours and it wouldn't update at the end of the mission. Tried double checking all my paths, anything I could think of.

 

 

And of course it all came down to utter stupidity on my part. I had unwrapped it into a folder Nordic Battle so all my directories were actually "...campaign\nordic battle\nordic battle"!

 

 

Done a test and everything seems fine but I'm now too tired to play. Ah well, live and learn and I'll give it a proper whirl on my day off.
