RAZBAM Wings Over Vietnam Photoreal Terrain not showing?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I just purchased and installed RAZBAM Wings Over Vietnam Photoreal Terrain . Instructions say, unzip, copy all files into the Wings Over Vietnam/Terrain/VietnamSEA Folder.

 

I did that, they are all there, I can even click on the files and they show the photos (looks great), but when I play the game the terrain is not changed at all, just the stock terrain. :crazy: I did have Deuces tile set befor but I deleated this.

 

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated, is there some setting or config file to adjust. :dntknw:

I seem to remember the same problem . If memory serves ( it does'nt always does it ) you need to extract the terrain to another drive first I used 'C' drive to extract to and then pulled it out from there into the drive I was using for the Korea/Vietnam game/terrain if you see what I mean.

 

If this doesn't help then sorry and you will need to post to RAZBAM.

I'll see if I can replicate the problem when I get back home.

 

Can you post your system details, specially the graphics subsystem?

 

Also if you have the current patch installed and the current DirectX 9.0c

Thanks, yes I have signed up on the forum but had to wait for them to authorize which they did this morning.

 

If you can move it there that would be helpful, but also leave it on this forum also? :ok: thanks so much

 

 

you might want to try posting in the Razbam technical support forum?

Thanks. Yes I have the current patch and DX9c.

 

System: Dell XPS GEN 2, Pent 4, 3.2GHz, 3G Memory, ATI X1950 Pro 528meg GPU (APG)

 

I run MSFS 2004, Pac Fighters, IL2 all with great graphics so I imagine I can run WOV with its Mods fairly well. It's not a top end system now but it's pretty good.

 

One thing to note is that I installed WOV on another Hard Drive (H), my C drive was getting full so I intalled a Seagate HD a few months back.<BR><BR>Thanks again for any help

How do you have your graphics settings at?

 

I run an nVidia 8800GTX with all of the game graphics turned on high, 4:3 screen, 1280x1024 32-bit.

 

I just loaded the standard terrain and copied all of the photo-real files into the VietnamSEA folder.

 

I can see the tiles ok, I'll see if I can take some pictures and post them here

Ok. Here's some pictures between the stock WoV Terrain and after I added the PhotoReal files.

 

Just in case, the Stock VietnamSEA only had the VietnamSEA.cat, VietnamSEA.ini and VietnamSEA_dogfight.ini plus a filepatch.ini file

I have my Graphics card on the highest setting. I also have a Dell 24" wide screen set on the highest resolution and aspect ratio that I can choose from the WOV menue.

 

I'm not the smartest guy in the world, but I'm confindent that I'm following the installation instructions on this and other Mods, but it seams that nothing works, it just stays stock.

 

After looking at your pictures I can see that mine is still stock terrain. The crazy thing is that I know the correct files are in the VietnamSEA folder because as I said I can click on the files and they open and are clearly photographs. It is like the program doesnt know they are there to load.

 

Maybe I should just try a new reinstall of the entire program?

 

Do you think it has anything to do with my installation location? I have it on my H drive not the Cdrive where my OS is installed?

No, I don't think that is the problem.

 

I have the "True" installation in the C drive and then I copied it into the D Drive for my test installation. You can also clean install it into any drive.

 

Just a thought, you said that you originally had it in the C Drive and then you made some changes.

 

Did you re-installed the package or just copied/moved the folder to the H Drive.

 

If you installed it in the H Drive, did you un-installed it from the C Drive first?

 

Are you sure that the C Drive does not contain another copy of WoV? I imagine you launch it from a desktop icon, right click on the icon and check the properties and see where is the WoV program located.

 

BTW, when you are replying please get rid of the pictures. It wastes Bandwidth and also makes the message reading harder.

I may have confused this a bit, but it has only been on my H drive, never on my C drive (I just noted that it was not installed on the drive that has my OS).

 

I'll make sure that I only have it on my H drive. I'll check because the auto run installer typically sends you to the C drive, so I'll make sure I didnt screw up and install it in 2 places :blink: .

 

..ya, I realized I should have deleated those pics before replying :blush: .

One quick way to test it is to change one line in the VietnamSEA.ini

 

Here's the stock ini file

 

[Terrain]

TerrainFullName=Vietnam

 

Change the name to

 

[Terrain]

TerrainFullName=Edwards Vietnam

 

If you are running out of this folder, the terrain in the game drop down box should say Edwards Vietnam now.

 

I assume that the folder does have the extra files from the package.
