  1. I thought I'd start this thread in an effort to see what we've all got between us in the way of BoX coops so far. I've been hosting these made by Tx_Tips TipsCoOPs Pack One Updated.zip TipsCoOPs Pack Two Updated.zip These are fairly straightforward missions with er...brief briefings but some planes have an airstart option. TipsCoOPs Pack One Updated.zip They contain Stalingrad and Moscow maps and plane sets. I've also got these made by SYN_Vander which are in effect a mini campaign for the Kuban map. SYN_Cooperative_Kuban_v4.zip https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/30922-the-syndicate-corner/?page=3 With the exception of mission #4 they all contain at least one type of aircraft from the BoS planeset. They also come with a full brief and mission map. The BoX coop system seems to work very well - once you've got your ports sorted.. I've made a video and posted it in the rough and ready guide about hosting coops but briefly; download these into C:\Program Files (x86)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\Multiplayer\Cooperative start the game in online mode, click on multiplayer, select coops and then click on create server. You should then see and be able to select these missions in your coop folder. When you launch the mission you are actually putting a coop up but you will be able to fly these missions on your own. I wonder if this is a way for those Dogz who only have Battle of Stalingrad to have a play on the Kuban and Moscow maps at their leisure? In theory this should work as the game is being launched in multiplayer mode where all maps are available? What we really need to be able to do is edit these coops in the mission editor and replace the Kuban planes with Stalingrad planes so we can have as many Dogz participating as possible. I know this is doable using the editor, I'm just a bit stumped as to how at present Also; linky to section of the BoS forum where these - and others - are being posted https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/forum/113-multiplayer-missions-co-op-and-dogfight/ Any other coops people have - especially those succesfully generated using the campaign system or PWCG - please don't hesitate to post them here

    Ahhh....I did wonder if this happened. OK, good news. I've also edited my post above to add a total of four Dangerdogz friendly coop missions. I'll add some more soon and do that tutorial on the mission editor. However, luckily my middle son has reminded me - just in time - that today is my twentieth wedding anniversary.............. FOOK!!!!! I'd better get on that case now!

    Quick test. dangerdogz coop 001.zip 'Kin 'ell, it works!! Luckily I'm "working from home" this arvo @Crash; as requested - click on the link above and download into your coop file as per the instructions in my first post and you'll have a SYN_Vander Kuban map coop converted to Battle of Stalingrad planeset which means everyone can fly something. I'll get more up this week and put them in the vault too. I'll also try and do a tutorial on plane-swapping using the mission editor. Also, anyone who just has Battle of Stalingrad; I'm really curious if you can run this as a coop in your game. You don't need to fiddle with port-forwarding - just see if you can create and launch this coop. Again, see the first post in this thread. dangerdogz coop 002.zip dangerdogz coop 003.zip dangerdogz coop 004.zip
  4. This weeks BoS update is rather more involved than most being a complete re-install of the game. Worth a read of the dev diary; http://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/168-developer-diary/page-2#entry90146 Before sending my present copy of the game off to the recycle bin I made a copy of my control settings....just in case You can find yours in the game folder/Data/Input.

    Need a force feedback base for your WartHog?

    Possibly. He's received the money ok. Phew!

    port forwarding

    That looks like what he's looking for. Crash, for IL2 BoS you need to open ports 28000 and 28001 in both UDP and TCP.

    Launched my $300USD into the ether tonight. Around the end of July I should receive either a parcel from the Ukraine or a visit from UK Border Force!

    Need a force feedback base for your WartHog?

    Welllllllll..........like I said, I'm going to treat myself, so this unit will come in at $300US including delivery. Mine will be slightly different in that I'm having this throttle handle fitted The guy who makes this stuff is called Vitaly and he's in the Ukraine. He's been doing this for a while now and has established a solid reputation for quality and delivery. Of course, being in the Ukraine means no PayPal or credit card payment - and the protections you get from them as a purchaser - so I'm going to be operating on trust and doing a credit transfer into his bank account. Take a look at some of his other work; https://www.youtube.com/user/GVL224/videos and the thread on the BoS forums; https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/23758-iron-mechanic-throttle-motor-control-axes/ FT's old Logitech G940 throttle unit has done sterling work for me for several years now and I really like having twin levers and lots of buttons but it's getting pretty spikey in its responses these days. Three hundred bucks does not really seem that much if you consider the quality of these bespoke units compared with whats available in the way of mainstream products. Also, I'm using a Microsoft FFB2 stick which is only twenty years old so I know I won't have to replace that until at least 2040, so I thought I'd blow some serious lolly on a throttle unit!

    Not a stick but I'm seriously looking at treating myself to something like this;

    OK, got the first four SYN_Vander coops converted to BoS aircraft and yeah, I see what you mean FT. All laid out nice and neatly. I've also converted some of TX_Tips missions and I've changed the date on one of them so it should run the summer map. Also changed the 'supporting' aircraft that appear later on in some of these missions. These are flown by the a.i. only. Fingers VERY crossed. Wouldn't mind trying some of these out tomorrow night since it's a Bank holiday weekend over here.

    If you've got Battle of Bodenplatte early access and fancy flying your Spitfire mk. XI in something a bit more involved than the QMB can provide - and you've got the Kuban map - then Mr. Jade_Monkey over on the BoS forum has reworked his excellent "Defence of Taupse docks" mission to add the mk. IX Download the zip file and open it's contents into your Data/Missions file. Fighter - Spitfire Mk. IX - Tuapse docks defense.zip

    Vander's now made eight coops which gives us in effect a mini campaign. If we change the single-seaters present to aircraft from the Battle of Stalingrad plane set we all get the chance to fly on the Kuban map. At our present level of crash, burn and twenty seconds at take off this alone should give us around two months worth of coops without repeating anything! Have you tried to alter any of TX_Tips coop missions FT? They can be found here; https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/33301-tx_tips-dogfight-coops-and-teamplay/ As to missions from the generator; these missions are being originally generated by the games campaign system which is for single player. I'm pretty sure these can be saved and edited - I'll have a look around and see what I can find out about it. I seem to recall something along the lines of these missions having to be saved or renamed in the editor first which gives them the .mission extension file which means they can then be reloaded into the mission editor and opened. I think............ Doing all this stuff simply and on the fly like Oleg had it? Those were the days.............................
