Campaign aircraft upgrades

Recommended Posts

I was flying the Rolling Thunder campaign in SF2V, as part of VA-113. They start out flying the A-4C and were due to upgrade to the A-4C_65 in June 1965. However, that date came and went, without the switch. So I looked into the DATA.INI for CampaignV1 and it shows the date format as 6/1965. Other single digit day/month formats have a 0 in front. So, should it read 06/1965 to enable the fixed upgrade?

 

Thanks,

Jeff

That is a good question. I think the only way to know is to put the 0 in front of it and try again.

Ok, so I went back and added a 0 to the single day dates and re-ran the campaign, again with VA-113 in the A-4C. At the prescibed date in the CAMPAIGNV1_DATA.INI the upgrade to the A-4C_65 never happened. So I'd say this qualifies as a campaign bug.

 

I'd like to hear from other people flying the campaign to see their results before I post it at Thirdwire.

 

Thanks,
