There once was a mod that allowed you to turn on the swastika's. Does this still exist?

You could also try MAT Manager, which makes the "decals" more flat and transparent (to match the surface of the skin).

I gave UltraPack a try and after spending days downloading the seven parts most of the files were full of corrupt files and I didnít have the time or interest in going thru the process twice...once was bad enough.

download it on a torrent, much much easier, the same advice you were given over on ultrapacks boards.

Set it up to download before you go to bed, wake up in the morning its all there, in one file.

if you can't be bothered, well then its your loss.

By the way, you can enable swastika's in the config.ini, no mod or anything else is required.

Isn't it just a matter of adding the line "HakenAllowed=1" at the end of the
[game] section in your conf.ini.

So it looks like:
[game]
Arcade=0
HighGore=1
mapPadX=0.6822917
mapPadY=-0.050925925
viewSet=17
Intro=0
NoSubTitles=0
NoChatter=0
NoHudLog=0
NoLensFlare=1
iconTypes=3
eventlog=eventlog.lst
eventlogkeep=0
3dgunners=1
SubTitlesLines=5
ClearCache=0
TypeClouds=0
HakenAllowed=1

It's not a mod. The feature's always been there, implemented by the creators of the game, and is easily enabled in the conf.ini file as explained above.

It's disabled in the default setup to abide by the laws of some countries that explicitly forbid the use of svastikas in games, toys and other media -i. e. Germany.

What is the path to find the conf.ini.

its in your main il2 folder, ie IL-2 Sturmovik 1946, and the file is called conf.ini http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

before you ask, just open it in notepad, and save after the changes are done.

This ini entry only works with russian exe or when you have your game modded (which is based on the russian exe). The international version had this entry disabled.

Doesn't il2 stab let you enable them as well?

I've used matmanager since way back when, since the default markings in game are rubbish, and as well as changing all the markings to much better ones, it also lets you enables swastikas.

The international version also has the blood removed.

It beats me why.

IL2 Stab has an option to enable swastikas. It's an ancillary program, google it.

You can get il2 Stab from Mission 4today:

Excellent program for setting icon distances amongst other things.

You sure it's because the INI file is working with HakenAllowed=1

OR

You have skins that the swatiska is part of?
