Hello

After some troubles with my PC, I'm playing WoFF II again.
Unfortunately, not everything was recovered. My missions don't go down in the pilot's log book. So the career at Fontaine airport slowed down significantly.

Probably because of clearing the Campaigns, Mission, QuickCom files in the Documents file...
What files should I copy there to make up for this deficiency?

Do I have to reinstall the game?

Regards

Probably best to clean out, as per section 17 of the WOFF FAQ (see Support page on our web) then re-install, we don't support copy and paste install etc.

Hello, oh hello.

Thank you for the quick reply. I read section 17. I understood. Unfortunately, reinstallation, reinstallation...

The consolation is that, as you admonished, I have copied/saved the original game.

All I can do is ask if I can save/copy at least part of my career? Press something in the directories?


Regards

@OP,

You can preserve your pilot careers by copying the following folder to somewhere else, and then re-copying back after a new WoFF installation (or re-installation):

OBDSoftware/WOFF/OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields/campaigns/CampaignData/Pilots

If you prefer a more automated approach, recommended is to look for RJW's "Pilots Backup Utility" that is available on Sandbagger's mods. website for WoFF.

Cheers & good pilot backups to you,

~ For my various FM/AI/FPS/DM Mods. for First Eagles 2, WoFF, RoF & WoTR, and tips for FlightGear, recommended is to check over my CombatAce profile (https://combatace.com/profile/86760-vons/) and to click on the "About Me" tab while there. ~

Hello

The reinstallation went smoothly.
Thanks to your tip, I saved a large part of my career in Alsace.

By the way - in the "missions" file I noticed the "training" file. What is it about? I tried to run it but the PC doesn't allow it.

Regards

OK great, Ignore other files, some may be for the system/internal use or no longer in use.
