I can't change the picture in campaign mode. I went to DGen file and replaced the picture with a differnt one. Now no picture appears and the file I backed up is now lost. I read the readme directions for this and it still won't work. Can someone please give me step by step directions to insert a picture in the DGen file?

thanks

I thought that there was step by step instructions, particularly for the required format and resolution in the readme that came with the game. Have a look, mate, in your FB folder.

edit: Here it is:

8. Replacing faces in Campaign mode

If you wish to see your own face in the pilot roster under your record, simply replace the stock "Photo.bmp" located in the DGen subfolder of your Forgotten Battles installation. The image should be 192x256 pixels in size, and have Windows palette 256 colors. It does not have to be black and white.
If you wish to change faces of your squadmates, replace the numbered bitmaps under the corresponding country folder. These bitmaps should also be 192x256 pixels, Windows palette 256 colors. While that's not required, when replacing other pilot skins you should also update the corresponding pilot skin in the \PaintSchemes\Pilots subfolder. If you don't do that, the correct face will show up in pilot roster, however in the game engine the pilot will still keep the old face.

You just need this: the picture in the \DGen folder must be named Photo.bmp and must be 8 bit, 72 dpi, 192 x 256 (exactly like the original one).

You shouldn't care having lost the original one with the ugly guy, anyway! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I thought I followed the instructions. I deleted the photo, inserted another one by copy/paste. I saved it as a bmap image as it was a jpeg one originally. Whatever I did, I get no photo in campaign mode under pilot profile. I don't know why it wont work.

Go in \Missions\Campaign\*country\DGen**name_campaign and check that in the file Squadron.dat the fifth line states "PHOTO: Dgen\Photo.bmp"

* country is DE, FI, HU, RU
** name_campaign is something like "DGen_C_Balaton_yourpilot's_name"
