Unable to fly missions, Campaigns inactive


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have Flaming Cliffs 2, which I selected over DCS 1.5 because I can run it on max settings on my PC. I am only able to fly in Quick Start mode. There is nothing under the Training section. There are plenty of .miz missions under the Mission section, but when I double click them and the details appear, there is no way to proceed...no 'fly' or 'continue' button (actually no button at all). And all the campaigns show as 'Inactive'. What gives??? Please help :cry: Edited by Condor_USAF

I'm no expert but I do remember the Training missions are a Download separate from the game. The Missions I would suggest you Open them in the EDITOR & check that the planes are set to PLAYER. Other than that I think you will have to Re-Download & Register.

Hi all,

 

I have Flaming Cliffs 2, which I selected over DCS 1.5 because I can run it on max settings on my PC.

 

I am only able to fly in Quick Start mode.

 

There is nothing under the Training section.

 

There are plenty of .miz missions under the Mission section, but when I double click them and the details appear, there is no way to proceed...no 'fly' or 'continue' button (actually no button at all).

 

All the campaigns show as 'Inactive'.

 

What gives??? Please help :cry:

 

  1. Training missions were are separate download as stated by someone else.
  2. Been a while, but I think the missing buttons is is related to the screen resolution you use, being an older title, it doesn't scale correctly to higher resolutions such as HD 1080p ( 1920x1080 ), it has to be run in its original intended resolution ( 1024x768 ) or something close to that for all of the buttons to be visible in the menu, the Mission Editor will also be missing all of the buttons on the left hand side for inputing units and the like.
  3. The campaigns will always say inactive, until you can actually click on the "start a campaign" button that is currently missing.

Yes!! You are exactly right mate. Reducing resolution to 1024 makes the buttons appear for proceeding to the next screen.

 

However, I'm happy to report that I discovered DCS World 2.5 runs quite well on my PC, albeit in low settings. As such, I've graduated to FC3 on 2.5.

 

Cheers!
