I include the original Iran Iraq War read me file below:
This campaign is based on the Iran Iraq war that lasted from 1980-1988. It includes New terrain,, Persian music, photos, new screens, new sound files, new planes, new skins, and campaign files, heavily researched air units for Iran Iraq, historical air bases and locations.
This needs to be a separate install.
Please make sure your sf1 game installation follows this path (or the medals will not work): C:\IranIraq\Strike Fighters\Flight etc.
You may go into the MedalsIRAQ.ini AND MedalIran.ini files (located in the "flight" folder of this zip) and change the path if you so desire (AS AN Example ADDING d:\ drive instead of C:\ ).
Please install the contents of the folders to their respective locations (not the folders themselves but what is located inside).
You must have the following additional planes(and weapons pack) installed.
Latest Weapons pack (can be found at www.combatace.com)
There is also an optional skin pack that adds even more skins to the Iraqi side created by Phamtuan called : Phamtuan_Skinpack_Iraq that can be used to enhance the game. it may be found at wwww.combatace.com
Go to the terrain folder in your SF1 directory. Locate the desert folder. Locate the Desert cat file. Copy file over into the IR folder located in the terrain folder (if you followed the instructions outlined above). Rename the Desert cat file in your IR folder from : Desert to : IR
#1 There is a known issue while flying from some of the bases that will occur when there is a heavily overcast day with low cloud cover. You will not see the runway due to the clouds, your plane will be positioned above them on the runway. You may take off as normal and it does not affect game play. This is a visual glitch probably due to the terrain elevations and it is relatively rare.
In order to properly simulate a protracted ground war (after all this war ended in a stalemate after 8 years!)
we have frozen the ground offensives and they will not start for approximately 9 months of game time. If you play the entire campaign through, it will start before the campaign ends. This method is probably more historical.
If you would like to change this setting, it is very easy to do. You need to open the IranIraq_data.ini file and find the following file:
For both Force 1 (Iran) and Force 2 (Iraq) you may then change the value.
Be warned that changing these settings may result in strange results (the war ending after several months as an example).
