i have to shoot down 20 fighters, ive shot down 12 so 8 to go but there are no more fighters on the map. i even checked with console command.
also i doubt that this scenario is even possible without any money for repairs... 27 per turn is nothing for the amouth of planes you have.
Make sure you have the latest version.
There was a number of changes recently, ie adding an extra number of resources at the staret of each scenario.

ok then, i had version 2.0 downloaded it from the custom campaign list. maybe you could edit this one?
i will give it another try.

The Campaign thread should always have a link to the latest version.
Whenever you want to play any of my custom scenarios/campaigns, please check the correct thread first.

Hi, does anybody have the same problem?

After finishing the 2nd scenario u get to choose between Gibraltar, Brighten and Dover.
I had choosen Gibraltar, that worked fine.
But after Gibraltar, Lyme Regis as well as Brighten and dover(i saved on the campain map due to the choices), after deployment and hitting the end deployment button.
It wont continue.
Nothing happens, nether switching to my turn or the enemys.

I played the version 2.7

There is/was a general issue with adding/removing factions in the editor.
It may have been fixed in the public 3.3.9 beta.

I won't use the BETA as it means double work for me to compare files and modify my gameplay mod, but I'm very curious if Lyme+ works now that we can play on there.

Hi everyone,

this may be a stupid question, but I really don't know what to with the downloaded folder... Where do I have to extract the files to?

I'm really not much into modding, but your "PC campaigns" sound awesome!

After extracting the campaign file from the zip or Win/rar, put it in the Campaign's folder for 'Order of Battle', which can be found in My Games in Documents.

Hope this helps. :)

Erik, if you got the time then fix these infinite VP-triggers with rewards in the Philippine campaign. In one scenario I captured up to 5 M3 tanks by capturing whatever VP afterwards. Similar but less noticeable are the little +10 RP rewards. Cloning the reward-triggers and changing them accordingly shouldn’t be too much work.

've taken the British experience down a notch in the earlier scenarios (until London).

Dover/Brighton: Some of the German panzers and heavy infantry reinforcements are now core units.
The 2nd and 3rd waves now arrive on specific turns instead of being triggered by German capture of (difficult) port objectives.

All those infinite triggers with rewards are secondary objectives so I just change them to one-shot triggers.
Thanks for reporting.

To see more of the tree with proper lines and such, modify the campaign's data.cmp file with an text-editor:
[ALLIANCE]
date = 1/9/1939
end = 1/1/1946

Having trouble with Norway selectable scenarios. Anyone I try, load shows extreme zoom out and will not progress (app locks up) from there. All scenarios thru Denmark earlier in campaign work fine. Tried lowering res, 2d map, less effects etc . Also task manager shows machine is not gassed for resources (disk, memory, cpu) not quite sure what is going on ? Running V 4.3 of capaign

Change data.cmp again to skip Norway if no scenario is working there for you:

[Denmark]
result = -2,-2,12,12,12

The Norway scenarios will tax your PC. Narvik, Trondheim and Bergen plays OK on my PC, but my Oslo scenario crashes even the devs PC.
I hope they fix the game to easier be able to load large scenarios. After all, a 120x120 map should be playable.

120x120 maps should indeed be playable, but not on everyone's computer. As long as you stick to the manageable sizes of the original campaigns, no one will complain.

Here an example of a still unfinished, small Oslo map using the same real-map template like you, Erik:

adherbal said he would use my Oslo map as a 'tool' to fix loading large maps.
So I'll wait a while.
But is was a nice map.

Oh yes, no doubt the details are awesome on such huge maps. If you like to create for example there the island area of Oscarsborg accurately, there is no other way to zoom in. The only problem left is: what to do with all the many other uninteresting hexes that units most likely never visit. A waste of game performance.

Oh, the transparency gets ruined if you download the unit-graphic there. Better keep the pics zipped!
