I downloaded a great Charles Older skin for the H81A-2.

Trouble is, it won;t show up in the file. I put it in the P-40B and C files easy as pie.

On the page I DL'd from on il2skins, the author mentioned making sure the skin was put in the file only after re-naming the file *exactly* as it appears in the FMB.

I did so. No skin. I renamed the file many, many things after that. No dice.

Anyone know the answer to this problem? Luckily, the default skin for the H81A-2 is <span class="ev_code_RED">KILLER</span> http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

this is important, dammit! Stop feeding your kids or doing your paperwork or putting out that car fire, or arresting that gunman, or rescuing that kitten, or doing whatever little piddling thing passes for 'important' in your pathetic little lives, answer me! Answer or I'll do...something. I'm not exactly sure what, but I can assure you, boyo, it will be extremely unpleasant and will involve a cantaloupe

OK, Ian says:

rename it as follows, exactly. ready?

Hawk81A-2

I had been using a space between the k and 8, I'll go see if this solves the problem

bumping for the spread of info, and peace, and puppy dogs, and hugs, and all that rot

bumping for wet sloppy kisses, Hawk 81 fans and the idly curious
