Dynamic Campaign Generator (DCG) is a mod for the games "Men of War" and "Men of War: Assault Squad" that randomly generates skirmish missions and lets you keep your surviving forces from one battle to another. Some people find this mod tricky to install the first time - please read the readme.txt carefully and ask for help (if you need it) on our forums here on this site, or at the game developer's site.

Post tutorial Report RSS How to install DCG 3.5

This is a simple guide how to install DCG 3.5. I tried to make it as simple as possible

Posted by on - Basic Installers

First of all I will be using the vanilla MoW. But its the same in Assault squad too :)

STEP 1
Secure the keys!

Make sure that you have Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 or newer installed on your computer.
But I'm pretty sure that most of us already have it.
So this probaly NOT necessary

The 32 bit version
or
The 64 bit version

And if you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 you already have it


STEP 2
Ascend from darkness!

You also need to have Microsoft XNA Framework Redistributable 3.1 installed, and I have notice this is a common error. Many just download the newest version of Microsoft XNA Framework Redistributable.
That will NOT work with DCG. It MUST be Microsoft XNA Framework Redistributable 3.1

Microsoft.com

STEP 3
Rain Fire!

And at last, you also need to have Microsoft Visual J#® 2.0 Redistributable Package installed

The 32 bit version
or
The for 64 bit version

STEP 4
Unleash the Horde!

Find your save folder for Men of War

You will find it in;

My Documents\My Games\men of war\profiles\username\save\
Inside the save folder create a folder and name it result


STEP 5
Skewer the winged beast!

Locate your Men of War folder

Non-steam version, by default its:
C:\Program Files\1C\Men of War

And the Steam version, by default its:
C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\Men of War
Inside the Men of War folder you need to have a folder named "mods". If you don't have one,
create one! :)

Do not close the Men of War window.


STEP 6
Wield a Fist of Iron!

Download the correct version of DCG for your Men of War.

open the archive with Winrar or Winzip.

Here you should find 5 folders

Drag or extract the folder "campaign" to your mods folder you created.
(not the campaign.exe but the whole campaign folder)

But hey, you are not done yet! :)

STEP 7
Raise Hell!

Download the correct hotfix for you Men of War.
Open it and you should see a single "campaign" folder,
copy that too (not the campaign.exe), to the mods folder, it will ask you if you want to replace the older campaign folder with new one. Press yes.
It will probaly also ask you if you want to replace or combine files. Chose to replace all files


STEP 8
Freedom!

You should now have a campaign folder here:
Non-steam version
C:\Program Files\1C\Men of War\mods\campaign

And the Steam version
C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\Men of War/mods/campaign

Now launch the campaign.exe within the campaign folder
and a new window should pop up

If you have the Non-steam version you don't need to do 1 or 2

Steam users nust do all steps

Steam users press "..." beside number 1
and locate the Men of War folder
C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\Men of War

Then press "..." beside number 2
and locate the campaign folder
C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\Men of War/mods/campaign

And last press "..." beside number 3
and locate your result folder you created earlier
My Documents\My Games\men of war\profiles\username\save\result

Then press "Extract All Maps"
Wait abit

press DONE

It can be

1. you gave DCG the wrong path to the men of war folder or the Campaign folder

or

2. You haven't extracted all maps within DCG

You can name the save folder to whatever you want to :) for example to something short like "a" or something like that

^^^^^^^^^
You lost me there. and this is the second to last step!

Opps, I have checked it section for awhile now :/
To answer you question about the hotfix if you haven't fixed it. You should find the "hotfix" under "downloads". Chose your version of men of war

Hotfix for DCG v3.0 for Men of War: Vietnam

or

Hotfix for DCG v3.0 for Men of War: Assault Squad

Or

Hotfix for DCG v3.0 for Men of War

I hope that helped :)

I don't have steam but iirc when you install a game from steam it will always be inside the steam folder.

Maybe you have installed it somewhere else? if so then you need to direct DCG do that folder/place

I am also not getting any thing after "mission completed" comes up it just keeps goin and does nothing. when i (after saving) exit and go to dcg main screen the only "operation"s screen is the operation editor. How do I get to the operations screen that will get me to the battle prep and mission planning screen to do next mission?

Are you saving with the right save-name? That might be part of the issue, because DCG should interrupt the game to inform you that the savegame is detected.

Thanks for the help but thats what I had been doing wrong. Once I finally read the instructions r-e-a-l slowly I found what I had been doing wrong. Since then its worked fine on all 3 versions of the game

have you installed the programs from step 2 and 3?

if yes, then it can be that you did'nt pointed DCG to the right locations.

read step 5 again :)

Hm I don't know how steam handles the save files but it should be something like this;

My Documents\My Games\men of war\profiles\username\save\result

When I try to extract my maps it says file not found C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Men of War Assault Squad\resource\game.pak

After that I also get a program error o.O I installed all the required programs :/ the game also shouldnt be missing the game.pak file because if its required for the game to work because I can play normally. I installed the hotfix too.

Thats strange, it most be that you haven't set the right path to DCG. Have you pressed all the buttons as shown in the picture from step 8?

From another DCG tutorial:

When you complete the Dynamic Campaign Mission in Men of War (whether you win,
lose, or simply decide to stop the mission to preserve your forces), simply save
the mission using the name that you specified in the DCG setup and you will be
returned to the beginning of this process to set up your next mission. :)
