Ok.. if your game was installed where it wanted to install itself, IE you didnt put it on a different drive, open my computer C DRIVE then Program files, look for the UBISOFT folder, open that, open the FB folder or PF or what ever version it is in there, look for the paintschemes folder, open that, look for the skins folder open that, look for the plane it is for, open that then unzip or if you already have unzipped it elsewhere drag the skin and drop it in that folder. thats it, you can now select it in the arming window by scrolling down the paintscheme list..

I have the FB-AEP-PF merged version and the path for mine is C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\PaintSchemes\Skins

then the plane folder, if it was put on D Drive etc, it would be similar

Sorry total newbie: Do you have to load up the blank and swastika less skins as well?

P.S. Why do people make these blank skins and swastika less skins?

The blank unmarked one some people add with their skin allows for people to use the in game markings on the skins for different countries or for those that have some skinning knowledge to add there own markings, the non swastika version is done for our German friends where the Swastika is illegal to use, or for those that could be offended by them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
