Hello, good evening people.

I was back at playing the game after a while and it keeps crashing on me, especially during the campaign.

I'm not sure what causes it, but it happens always after i order my wingmen to attack something (my target or not), seemingly happening after they lock onto something.

I'm currently patching the game through all the official patches (Merged, June 2012 as of now - but going through July 2013 as i'm writing this)

I'll keep updating this topic as i go on, but if there is no way fixing it by patching, is there something i can do (compat mode, messing around with .cfg, whatever) to correct it?

You need to specify, are you playing with the base stock game, or are you using mods?

This is a common bug when you fly heavy bomber aircraft, but the stock game does not allow to fly with those. So either you are using a mod, or the patching goes wrong and the issue exists with flyable fighter jets. Can't you download the latest installers from ThirdWire's store?

i have patched the game through the latest one, for some reason it still crashed. Another thing to note is that it happens mostly on the Desert (aka OG SF2 map) while other maps/executables such as SF2E or SF2I it doesn't happen, at least not as regularly

Update: Seems like what is causing the game issue is, whenever i ask my wingman to fire at an air target using specifically the AIM-7D Sparrow (fresh install again, btw) the game goes bananas and it crashes me to desktop

delete everything in the mods folder or just rename it. run the exes again, to rebuild new one. DO NOT ADD ANY MODS.  Restart the game, play as normal. See if the issue returns. If it does, then there's something majorly screwed in your game installs (the exes), which there is no repairing of.

If it returns to normal, then it 's something you added. That's all we can do, as you've really not stated the issue clearly. Terrains (should) have nothing to do orders to AI wingmates.

Yeah, i'm not quite sure what is doing that as i tried to run the .exes unmodded and it gave me the same results.

Anyways, thanks boys!

It happened to me, too when I was adding cockpit to fly a stock plane which was meant for A.I. only. The solution it worked was to change its AIRCRAFTROLE= in plane's dataini file, from BOMBER to ATTACK. Do that and your troubles will end. But all these works ONLY if your installation is flawless, of course. If you installation is screwed, you have to do as Wrench instructed.

      Good evening everyone,
      I have a few questions about MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI and .STR files;
       
      1) since I am looking for the way to do further changes to HUDDATA and GUI.  I did some researches and I found out that if I edit MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI, I will be able to do more customization to the in-flight screen.  I am unable to find MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI.  So where do I find it? I extracted flightdata and there is no MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI. Where can I find MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI?

      2) About .STR, I noted there are .STR on both flight and menu folders after extracting both using CAT extractor.  What kind of program is required, in order, to edit .STR files?  Or is there no way to mod them properly yet?

      As always, the information and advice are appreciated.

      Cheers!

      Hello everyone,
      While I was working on SF2 new MENU / GUI project, I realized that I really want to finish working on updating an ordinance list.  The reasons:

      I missed the old day of Jane's FA when I could view the list of ordinance that is separated between AA (Air to Air) / AS (Air to Surface).  I decided to work on it, so anyone who wants this can also enjoy SF2 with new ordinance list.  

      I created the notes with abbreviations I am using for the list.  The feedbacks are welcomed as always.  I will happily update the list if the community wants to see any abbreviations modified, changed, or added.  Here is the list:
      Abbreviations -------------------------------------------------------- <MISSILE PLATFORM - TYPES> AAM AIR TO AIR MISSILE ALCM AIR-LAUNCHED CRUISE MISSILE AGM AIR TO GROUND MISSILE ARM ANTI-RADIATION MISSILE ASM AIR TO SURFACE MISSILE AShM ANTI-SHIP MISSILE M-SAM MOBILE SAM SAM SURFACE TO AIR MISSILE <MISSILE - GUIDANCE TYPES> ARH ACTIVE RADAR HOMING CG COMMAND GUIDANCE CLOS COMMAND TO LINE-OF-SIGHT SARH SEMI-ACTIVE RADAR HOMING LG LASER-GUIDANCE LOSBR LINE-OF-SIGHT BEAM RIDING INS INERTIAL NAVIGATION SYSTEM IR INFRARED HOMING IIR IMAGING INFRARED GUI TGM TELEVISION GUIDANCE TV ELECTRO-OPTICAL GUIDANCE RA RADAR ALTIMETER GUIDANCE RC RADIO COMMAND RL RADIO LINK <BOMB - TYPES> CBU (CLUSTER BOMB UNIT) FFD FREE-FALL DEMOLITION GBU (GLIDE BOMB UNIT) GPB GENERAL-PURPOSE BOMB LGB LASER-GUIDED BOMB LDGPB LOW-DRAG GENERAL-PURPOSE BOMB NPB NAPALM BOMB PGM PRECISION GUIDED MUNITION <ROCKET - TYPES> AP ARMOR PIERCING FFAR FOLDING-FIN AIRCRAFT ROCKET HE HIGH EXPLOSIVE HVAR HIGH VELOCITY AIRCRAFT ROCKET <OTHER> DT DROP TANK ECM ELECTRONIC COUNTERMEASURES GP GUN POD RACK ORDINANCE RACK RL ROCKET LAUNCHER RP ROCKET PROJECTILE TGP TARGETING POD
      Here is the updated list of SF2 ordinances:
      NOTE: You will see duplicated names for drop tanks, don't worry about it.  It is connected to the aircraft.  You won't see duplicated drop tanks in SF2 Menu. This list is directly copied from weapondata. 
      The list is still WIP, there are probably mistakes I have not seen before.  So please let me know if you see anything needs fixing in the list.

      Hello everyone,

      I have a question about the location of weapons .ini files.  I have been looking for it using CAT extractor.  I am unable to find the .ini files for the weapons in SF2.  May I ask if anyone know where I can find it?

      If someone knows which weapons pack is up-to-date and is released for SF2, please let me know too.  I will contact author about tweaking their .ini for weapons, respectfully.  If the permission is approved, I will start .ini dancing through a long list of weapons.

      The information and advice are much appreciated, as always.  I am still looking for files again in SF2. 
      I am working on the project that sorts the weapon list like I did with the aircraft list.
      Cheers!

      Hello everyone,
      It has been a hectic week for me. I am still working on new SF2 menu project slowly.  At the same time, since I got a new external SSD as an alternative storage for my external HDD.  1 TB external is affordable now.  To my surprise, it is small and doesn't even require me to plug into power outlet, unlike an external HDD. I could just hook it into my gaming laptop's USB 3.1 T Type-C.  Oh boy, it made a huge difference. I am able to load SF2 much faster now. 

      I just wiped my old SF2 multi-installation, in order, to have a fresh start with SF2.  I spent weeks installing many mods for SF2, in order, to make up for my lost SF2 files.

      I decided to work on aircraft sorting list for my preference ways of sorting the list by nation first, then aircraft.  I started with default SF2.  (Note: I bought SF2 complete Edition since it is on sale.  It is a perfect time to get it before the time runs out.) 

      Here is what default list looks like:

       
      Now with a new sorting list (by nation), it looks like this:
      NOTE: When you see [Export], it means it have a multi nations skins included.  






      I am very pleased with this.  With the new sorting list, I am able to quickly tell which nation specific aircraft belong to. It has been an educational day for me about the nations and aircraft versions.  If anyone wants this, I could post it in combatace download section.  I modified All the aircraft .ini in a clean SF2 (Without mods).  That way anyone can build the mods on it. I am still brainstorming about what to do with [Export] tag.  Should I replace it with '*" or any certain symbols to the end of the aircraft name?  Feedback are appreciated, as always.

      Plus, I also can add updated HUDDATA.ini with both RWR and RADAR being included on upper right corner. I modified it this way, so I can easily scan my eyes between both RWR and Radar while padlocking around.  (Note: Either RWR / Radar will only show up if aircraft have either.  For example, if you fly aircraft that doesn't have either RWR or Radar, it won't show up on the screen.

      Hey guys, I have already made my campaign and it's working fine. Moreover, aircrafts' squadrons with  UpgradeType=ANY did respond to the command, but I can't upgrade my mig 21 for a weird reason.
      Look,
      UpgradeType=FIXED
      Upgrade[01].Date=6/5/1973
      Upgrade[01].Type=MiG-21MF
      Upgrade[01].Texture=Afghanistan3
      Upgrade[02].Date=6/5/1979
      Upgrade[02].Type=MiG-21bis
      Upgrade[02].Texture=SovietCamo1
      All aircrafts here has the name of their respective folder in object/aircraft, and that's the same case with texture as it has got the same folder's name. So, I don't really get the idea why it's not working should I gave it it's ingame texture name or use the texture folder's name (which I am already using) ? Or is there is something wrong with the command as it's under the missions types' commands not above it?  Thanks for your help in advance.
