3rd party elements are notoriously difficult to install properly. To avoid
problems, all elements used in our campaigns are included. Unless you're
experienced with installing campaigns we suggest you use the auto-install.
Double-click on the
EXE file to start the process. The path is directed to the CFS2 default
location. Use the Browse feature to redirect the install path to your
own Combat Flight Simulator 2 root directory folder if necessary. The
only things we either cannot or are not prepared to do are activating
scenery & modifiying default files.
CFS2 DIFFICULTY & REALISM SETTINGS
IMPORTANT CAUTION: In Korea, you have entered the very different world of jet combat, where speed and G-forces become critical factors and structural failure a real concern. It is important to understand that CFS2 was created for prop aircraft and, simply stated, the sim's performance parameters are not broad enough to cope reliably with all aspects of jet performance. The primary drawback is known as "Exploding Jets", which is catastrophic structural failure that causes your aircraft to self-destruct in mid-air.
THIS CAN BE EASILY AVOIDED BY MAKING THE FOLLOWING CHANGE IN YOUR CFS2.CFG FILE:
Open the CFS2.CFG
file (Main CFS2 directory) in Notepad.
THIS SETTING CAN
BE LEFT IN PLACE PERMANENTLY OR CHANGED BACK AT ANY TIME MANUALLY.
UPDATE - Before using Medium or Hard flight model settings please install the patch here
The Pacific Far East
scenery is included with this package by kind permission of Steve McClelland.
Some scenery by other
designers covering the same area might possibly conflict with Steve's
IMPORTANT CAUTION: In order for the Advance Info function of CFS2 to work properly, you MUST at the very least follow the manual entry instructions for the modification of your CFS2\INFO\airbases.dat file that are found in the campaign installation instructions. Otherwise any attempt to use Advanced Info will cause a CFS2 crash to desktop.
HOWEVER, TO GUARANTEE
A TROUBLE-FREE USE OF THIS FUNCTION, IT IS STRONGLY SUGGESTED THAT YOU
REPLACE YOUR CURRENT AIRBASES.DAT FILE WITH THE ONE PROVIDED IN THE CAMPAIGN
IF YOU ARE USING A STOCK AIRBASES.DAT FILE, YOU CAN KEEP OURS AS A PERMANENT INSTALL BECAUSE IT CONTAINS THE STOCK FILE ENTRIES PLUS THOSE FOR THE KOREAN BASES.
Some testers have
suggested it would be nice to fly the missions in winter. We have tried
Dean Reilly's Korean Replacement Winter Textures posted HERE.
They work well with Steve's scenery but it would be too big a download
to include in the package.
THE AIRCRAFT -
the PILOT'S NOTES on using jets in combat.
All aircraft included with the packages are specially designed or modified for our campaigns. If you have other versions of some aircraft it's important to use our versions. This will avoid problems & possible error messages when selecting missions. The Player aircraft can be changed from the Single Missions menu.
CFS2 "100 PLANE" LIMIT.
A considerable number of extra aircraft will be installed to run the campaigns. Depending on the number of 3rd party aircraft you already have installed this could take you over the CFS2 "100 plane" limit & cause problems. This can be fixed by dragging a few existing addons into a Hangar subfolder within the CFS2\Aircraft directory. Please be careful not to remove default aircraft or those others might be aliased to.
By far the best method is to use a duplicate install of CFS2 specifically for this & similar campaigns.
