About This File
DGen campaigns briefings - All languages except Russian.
Version 1.0 - June 30th, 2007
As you probably have realized if you play DGen dynamic campaigns, there are many mistakes in current DGen briefings files:
1) Missing campaign briefings and/or debriefings, which result in strange words displayed on the screen, such as "LeningradSummer44DeBr" or "Africa42tGbDb" for instance.
2) Mistakes in briefings, which can make it sometimes impossible to display them in the game, especially when DGen syntax is not properly respected.
3) Wrong or missing aircraft descriptions or city names
4) Spelling and grammar errors
There are countless errors in the files, which is unavoidable given the hundreds of possible campaigns and probably thousands of various combinations of missions and campaigns which are available.
So I checked each briefing file, in all languages except Russian, and compared the contents with each related campaignsXXY.dat file, for all DGen campaigns.
Basically all files have had to be corrected, except the Polish briefings and a couple of the RAF briefings over Murmansk. All others are corrected.
For spelling and grammar, I corrected only the French briefings. For all languages, I tried to correct as many DGen errors as possible, such as missing briefings or debriefings.
There are probably still many mistakes, but at least with these files now the user should be able to start a campaign without seeing something like "Lvov41SkBr", and finish campaigns without seeing something like "KurlandAug44DeDb".
Some of the briefings will appear in English even if you use another language in the game, some will be blank, but I added new ones for most campaigns which had no briefings.
Thanks a lot to Ijekio ULMAR who provided me with a translation of his Africa campaigns briefings made by Gagarin, which I adapted slightly.
Some mission briefings for the Luftwaffe over Africa may look strange, because they refer to Soviets as enemies: this is due to the fact that these files are common with Eastern Front campaigns.
TO INSTALL, simply unzip the DGen folder contained in the zip, into the game's main directory, for all versions of installations/add-ons/patches.
By default the game's main directory is C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946, or C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles.
You can also use these files if you have Pacific Fighters only.
Allow Windows to overwrite older files.
I intend to update these files whenever necessary.
If you find mistakes, please let me know what campaign/mission briefing is wrong, and I will do my best to correct further: e-mail to me at email@example.com
