Caporetto V2 (Terrain & Campaign) MOD - Screens not loading

Recommended Posts

I have fully installed the mod and can access the campaign and the added aircraft (the first aircraft in the campaign was missing engine sounds so I fixed the INI file and it worked).

The screens for the campaign do not show and I get dark screens instead.

I have tried running different settings in the game, nvidia and also different compatibility settings (windows98 on upwards to windows 7) on the exe but nothing works.

Anyone know why?

For aircraft that seem to be missing engine sounds (if you are using the data inis from my FM update packs), I recommend the two links called "List of My Engine Sound Names and Original Engine Sound Names" and "Engine Sounds Pack," from the following post:

In terms of Caporetto campaign questions, hopefully someone with more experience with campaigns will pitch in with helpful info. (I have the terrain installed but usually fly single missions over it).

Wow, took a look at that post, really awesome info, I can see I missed installing a lot of great mods as well, thanks!!

I haven't yet installed your FM pack but had already downloaded it, really looking forward to it.

What single missions are you flying? From a pack here?

edit - BTW I made a Sim Dashboard for SF2 and I think it should work unedited (just ignore extra functions) with FE2.

Sorry, Shousa, what generation game are you using? Most likely, the reason is either in the format of the screens- JPG or BMP, or in the screens resolution .

Thanks, Crawford! The screens are BMP files and I have a 60hz Non-gaming Phillips Monitor with a 2560 x 1440 screen but it is always running at 1920 x 1080 for my Flightsims.

Any ideas?

Edit - Oops I just bought FE2.

Oh, no, I didn’t mean the resolution of the display, but the resolution of screenshots that do not want to be displayed. The fact is that the FE1 game engine does not like it when the size of the image for the Menu exceeds 1024x768 pixels (the same applies to the Hangar screen for each aircraft, at the same time, the size of the Download image does not matter). :dntknw:

Ok thanks I will try that :smile:

Please see what is indicated in your Main Caporetto ini.file and in the Caporetto DATA.ini file in the [Campaign Data] section - the names of screenshots and their format are indicated there.

I set up my single missions using the in-sim menu in FE2 - the great thing about it is that (as in WW1) you don't know what type of enemy aircraft you will encounter, or the number of aircraft - although congestion settings can be controlled to some extent via the in-sim menu, and further congestion files (the "formation.ini" file that goes into the Flight folder of the user folder for FE2 - some of those are included with my FM update packs for FE2).

For recommended flight congestion settings in the in-sim menu, for those who like to fly historically, I recommend point no. 7 under my "Rules for DiD Style Single Missions in FE2" available at the link below (where I attempted to imitate the DiD campaigns/missions that are constantly going on at the WOFF forum on the SimHQ website - in my opinion FE2 is excellent for DiD, "dead is dead," style missions and campaigns):

Happy flying,

Crawford - ah much obliged, I should have realised that, I did resize them but they didn't work. Will look at those files.

VonS - far out, it seems that the single mission generator is very nice. I will print off your rules and put them in my plastic folder thingamebob, good for the immersion, great job on that!

Thanks to both of you :smile:

It is very strange. There may be only two reasons: either the files are not where they should be, or the game does not see them because of their inconsistency. In such cases, it is recommended to reinstall the mod.

In FEG, the Campaign Screens are in the "Menu" folder. Unfortunately, I don’t know where they should be in the 2nd Generation game.
