Hi,

I downloaded a new bf109 g2 black 6 skin based on the 109 which was at duxford.

When i open the downloaded file there are no instructions on how to install the bmp file & how do i fly the aircraft in forgotten battles.

Will i be able to fly this aircraft in pilot career, qiuck missions etc,etc?

Your help is appreciated. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

...\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\PaintSchemes\Skins\Bf-109G-2 is the directory(folder) to put your .bmp file.

Yes, you will be able to fly it in career mode. Just click "arming" option before you click "fly" button, and select your bf109 g2 black 6 insted of default skin http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Hi atomic,

i placed the bmp file in the locations you show & when i click arming, it does not let me change aircraft. The skins drop down list available does not list the black 6 skin only a couple & they seem to be related to JG52.

Any idea's?

Thanks

I take it you did unzip it into the folder and you can see it like a plate as with the others, check it is a BMP file and there are no gaps in its name...... also make sure its 1024 by 1024 256 colour bmp..............but it should be already, just make sure its unzipped correct, if in doubt do it again

Tip:: Download into a folder C:\b , then unzip into C:\b , then copy into whatever FB skin folders you wish. For example I use the same skins in folders for Fb109E (all), F (all), and G2.
