Good afternoon,
well i-m hooked,more on FB than IL2,i just love the huge maps available.Unfortunately not having internet at home i-m unable to play online and it-s here that i-m feeling a little sore...i-ve seen in photos=and i downloaded some noseart=it was the typical "girls in scanty clothing",something to add that touch of difference to your Plane,unfortunately,not beeing able to play online i can-t use it...and this is my question,is there available nose art ,bombs,owls,eagles etc or any other type of add ons for plane‚¬®s in FB when one is NOT flying online.It would be really nice to be able to add different markings not only to my flight but to enemy aircraft to.It would be just a bit more fun,suppose thats what its about isnt it...
I would REALLY appreciate ALL replys to this including ideas and comments
Thanks

Download and install IL2MAT and it's FB "hook" by Andrew from my website and you will be able to use CUSTOM nose art in OFFLINE campaigns:

Yep IL2Skins.com.
Yuri has some really nice nose art there and i have the insignia files for almost all of the US 8th Air force Fighter Groups there. I'm working on the bomber groups for the 8th AF right now and i should be posting those some time in the next few weeks.

Just exactly WHAT are you having problems with?

SKINS must be placed in the individual plane folders in the PAINT SCHEMES/SKINS folder for the game to see them...for example, you have a new Yak1 skin...copy it to the PAINT SCHEMES/SKINS/YAK1 folder and you can then access it in the game

Nose and regiment arts must be placed in the PAINT SCHEMES/REGIMENTS folder...each must have a 128x128 or 64x64 256 color *.BMP of the graphic PLUS a file that describes the name, nationality, etc. for the graphic...see my website for more details on how to set up IL2MAT and your REGIMENTS files in general

Thanks for replying,im downloading your MAT and TGA tutorial at this moment,i was fiddling with the program last night but im still unable to see any nose=art...im sure that this is due to my inompetence rather than anything else....
ill post again later if i can,i think the problem is in the set up=where i have to direct the program to look for the files to start off with.
Thanks again...

Good evening Yuri,
sorry it's been such a long time since i last posted but i've had an awful lot of work.
i've downloaded various skins an d placed them like you said-and Hey! it all worked-thank you..But,there's always a but,i still can't get the nose art to work...
i've downloaded your il2Mat,on the top line i have it directed to Ubisosf,il2Fb.On the "squadrons" i've tried replacing the normal squadron marking for a substituite but still no joy.I've tried to using your download(from your web-page)of nose art and puting it directly in the Regiments folder,but unlike "pilots" and "skins" that i've downloaded i don't seem to be able to "see" them when i want to use them whether it's in the quick mission builder or the Full Mission Builder...(i LOVE the Hungry Bee)..
Any thoughts....?

thanks a Millon....

remember each nose art you use as a REGIMENT graphic must be either 64x64 or 128x128 pixels, saved as a 256 color, 8 bit Windows BMP PLUS you need to have the SAME NAMED text file also in the REGIMENTS folder, so..

HUNGRYBEE.BMP and HUNGRYBEE text file must both be present for you to use the graphic in the game. You also must edit a preexisting REGIMENT text file and RENAME it to the NEW named textfile, you can't simple use NOTEPAD to do a file called HUNGRYBEE.txt

If you have a TXT extension it won't work...please re-read my tutorials and AcesHigh2 tutorials carefully...if you still just can't get it right...email me you custom graphics and I do it for ya...

S!
