Pink elephants? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Seen that happening couple times in online coops
maybe 1 from 1000

most likely a some sort of glitch when connection was established between you and client

Did other pilots c it that way or just you and player who had that?

Had the same thing happen to one of my friends while we were flying in a COOP Friday night. In fact, same A/C...P38J.

Just figured he was coming out of the closet. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Anyway, he also lost rudder control and had to disconnect. Next time he logged on, all was well again.

That looks like what might happen when the game applies no skin (not even the default one) to the plane. Probably caused by some sort of packet loss during transfer of skin information from that player to the server. As the host didn't get enough information to indicate what skin should be applied, no skin information was sent to the other clients. Their machines would then assume the default skin and display it accordingly.

Please note that this is all hypothesis based on your description of the circumstances, but it seems reasonable...

Actually had a texture 'mess-up' with the same A/C today. In a co-op with my squad one of the guys had a Spitfire texture on the P-38. He says it was not in that folder and certainly not selected. Could not make it go away... Obviously it looked pretty messed up with wheel textures on the engines etc.

I see a version of this quite frequently in co-ops, and always on the P38. Usually it is the host's aircraft. Eventually the skin loads, usually before takeoff.

Oh, and don't you find it frightening the Gibbage chose pink as the base color for modelling the P38?
