Today I first flew a german plane again with the new patch:

But where the hell are the markings???
I mostly flew Corsairs and such before, but US planes NEVER had markings (just some on skins), so I didn't notice...

There is no switch when you are online. If you don't want any markings you usually need to select NONE under country. Or Seite in this case.

I have this problem too. When flying US planes, US markings do not appear when selected.

When flying non US planes, US markings DO appear.

When flying US planes, non US markings DO appear.

So I can have a P51 with Russian markings, or a Yak with US markings, but never a P51 with US markings.

This only happens when I select US planes like P51, P47, P38...even new US planes like F6 and FM2 have this problem, but never when selecting any other country besides the US. And any non US plane can happily fly with proper US markings...I just don't get it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Anyone have any thoughts?

My problem has existed since FB 1.21 at least...but oddly enough I have reformatted my machine and done several clean game installs since then. And though I do some amount of copy and paste with old files like conf.ini, there is no definate single file or files that have been carried down from patch to patch, except for skins. I had thought perhaps overwriting specific version void.bmp files with older ones might be the problem, but I've taken care to disprove that, and I've even changed download locations of patches from time to time to try and eliminate possible patch corruption, though I still get the same results. The only constant that I can think of might be the CD's themselves...but what are the odds? Having said that, I guess I better go see if I can find a different CD installation to try out.


I've never heard of anyone else with this problem, so I figured I'd chime in now that I see someone who has similar issues.

Most US planes have their markings as part of the skin and not as a marking like the other nationalities use.

The voids you are using as examples have no markings at all but the default skin should.

The P-51 skin (Zen51dsilver3NM.bmp) needs US stars applied to it as the game won't apply them for you.

Found the reason for the lack of markings. I tried around with that polygon offset stuff because someone told me I could get rid of some fps eaters on the shore with it, and it did even work http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

But still, no US markings on US planes.

I also noticed that RN planes with RN markings get RAAF markings or is that correct?

Simon, are you serious? LMAO, silly me.

In all the various things I tried or experimented with it never once occurred to me that this might be the case.

Is it true? If so, thank you very much for the explanation, I simply would have never thought of that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
