Allied Bombing Range

Recommended Posts

March 04, 2008

 

Try Down loading Allied Bombing Range into WOE. Can Not get AnyThing to work, I am totality lost on the input of the bombing range. Even set-up a new game just for the bombing range only. Still the planes go into Intercept, Escort, Armed_Recon, and ETC.

When flying do not see any bombing range. Your help will be very Grateful.

 

Thank:

The "Allied Bombing Range" is designed for a WW2 stand alone install, as is it's companion, the "Axis Bombing Range". It is NOT designed for use in a 'modern' ie post 1950s era install. For those, you'd use the regular "Range" or "Red Range" terrain (to which updates are available, adding more targets)

 

When you say nothing works, can you be a little more discriptive?? Meaning, the game crashes on loading a mission, crashes when starting a mission; objects are missing??? Tiles are missing???? Targets are missing???? WoE is fully patched up (most current - that last patch adds the airfields from the desert cat)

A little more information, please.

 

I DO realize the readme was/is exceptionally sparse....

 

WW2 Allied Bombing Range for SF, WoV & WoE

 

This is a modification of the ini, and adding objects to give The Range a World War 2 flavor

 

You'll need to have the following items in the GroundObjects folder, as they are called out for in the types ini:

 

SdkfzHalfTrack

Blitz Truck

 

All other items, train station, 'The Factory Place", Truck depot, parked aircraft, and the 'Ship Target' are included

 

You do have the Range.ini set up to use the WoE GermanyCE.cat???, as shown below .. (btw, this info is also in the knowledge Base 'Third Party Terrains' thread)

 

This is right from my SWOTL2 install...

 

[Terrain]

TerrainFullName=Allied Bombing Range

DataFile=Range_data.INI

TargetFile=Range_targets.INI

TargetTypeFile=Range_types.INI

MovementFile=Range_Movement.INI

NationsFile=desert_nations.INI

BriefingText=Range_briefing.INI

DogfightFile=desert_dogfight.INI

DogfightOnly=FALSE

CatFile=..\GermanyCE\GermanyCE.CAT <-- important line

 

 

Try that, and let us know!!

How do I down load the SdkfzHalfTrack and Biltz Truck into the GroundObjects folder?

 

When I hit enter for the plane to go to the Bombing Range this is the message I received.

 

( Wings Over Europe has encounted a problem and need to close. )

 

Thanks:

I checked the downloads section, and no joy... or not looking in the right spot?

Fatman: you'll need the WW2 ground objects, available at Geo's site (don't have the url here)

 

flanker: you're right!!! I can't find it either here or at my site. I KNOW I uploaded it somewhere..... Well, hell. Looks like I know what I"m doing tommorrow morining. If I can't find an archived copy, I'll just have to assemble a new package.

What I basically did, is add the stuff seen in the WW2 versions, with 'modern' vehicles and stuff.

Where do I get the information about the track and truck to put in GroundObject folder.

How do I download the track and truck in the GroundObject folder?

 

Thanks

Follow the instrucitons in Geo's read me. They should already be set up as per Patch 4. Just unzip (to a temp folder...it's easier to work with), then copy/paste or move whatever, the vehicles folders into you GroundObjects folder.

 

open the ini, say the Sdkfz251.ini, and make sure they have something similiar showing:

 

[GroundObjectData]

ObjectFullName=Sdkfz 251 Half Track

ObjectDataFile=Sdkfz251_DATA.INI

 

The others should have the same lines, just particular to themselves.

 

As for your error message, we need to see WHAT the error was. There should be a little highlighted or underlined piece of text that you can click on. Somethng like "to see what errors were recorded, click here"... or words to that effect.

 

Obviously, something is missing. They all work fine for me!! :dntknw:

I found the problem, to many spaces in the Allied and Axis ranges, it was easy after I

found my mistakes. I really appreciate all your time and effort in helping me. I thank

you very much. I am no longer rangeless in Denver.

 

Thanks Again
