I was browsing through my DGEN folder a while ago, and I think I recognize these pilots' faces:

This guy (I THINK) plays for FC Barcelona

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v624/GreyBeast/19.jpg
This COULD BE Philip Cocu, who USED TO play for Barcelona

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v624/GreyBeast/06.jpg
..and THIS GUY looks waaaaay too much like Ruud van Nistelrooy for it to be a coincidence...

BTW... here are "original" pics of the last two players mentioned:

Do any of you Dutch forum members want to comment?

P.S.: These could have been downloaded with a missions/campaigns pack...

Philip Cocu is Belgian......

But yes, he played footy here in my home town together with Ruud.

Cocu is Belgian? Then how could he have played in the Dutch National Team?

And, BTW, congratulations, you registered on this forum on the day of my 31st birthday!!!

Cocu is dutch for sure.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have been browsing though those pictures before and never saw them, so I guess you got it from something else than the game originals. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Funny though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

They make a lot of money just by kicking a ball... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

That last one is definately Ruud.

Trouble is, I'm not sure if any of them are Dutch as they aren't gobbing into Rudy Voeller's mullet.

INDEED, a while ago, we from 1.JaVA brought out the "Dutch pack". It consisted of some markings a Dutch speech pack (mostly 1.JaVA actors) and indeed some Dutch pilot pictures. 1.JaVA_Serval made the pilot pictures and decided that football players look much more prettier then the criminals of the 1.JaVA squad http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif (joking)

I think he did a good job on those pictures. Serval also convinced that Oleg should put this "Dutch pack" into PF by patch. Anyways, it is nice that someone was noticing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Ahhh.... Platypus, old chap!

So you and your gang are the authors of this... Good!

I thought it MUST have something to do with the campaigns I downloaded recently. Funny experience, to browse the DGen folder, and thinking: "Hold on... that face looks quite familiar!" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I have to correct this: Elephant made the pictures and the pilot skins.

The Dutch pilotskins and partraits came in the game with the 4.0x update. So, anyone who likes can hear some Dutch brabbling http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
If you look in the DU folder of the speech, you can also find two extra actors (Indonesian gunner and a pilot with a really crappy and noisy radio).

So, Arnie, you browsed the faces before 4.01 or you did not pay attention. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

First one is Bronckhorst (Barcelona, Rangers)... be sure. They follow in this order: Cocu (Barcelona, PSV), Nistelrooy (PSV, Man UTD), UTD Nistelrooy, PSV Cocu.

All great players with exception of Nistelrooy, because he is World Class.

I bet they kick a$s in FB too.

Sorry for entering, since I am not a Dutch, just one more football fan.

No problem, Marten, you may not be Dutch, but neither am I... hehehe

I'll call you "Scandinavian", because of your name, I won't guess which country because from this point on is where I usually screw up.

I'm discarding Finland and Denmark, which leaves us with Norway or Sweden, I suppose.

Anyway, as I was saying, you might not be Dutch, but you got ALL the names right. van Bronckhorst was the one I was looking for, thanks!

Now, put on an orange T-shirt (like I'm wearing) and hopefully we'll pass as Dutch, eh?

Well, usually, americans are easy to spot in a crowd. As well as Eastern European folks. Aside from asian and africans of course. Ow and don't call us authors or, we will find a way to sue you for posting these pictures on the internet http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


Happy flying!!

Well, that shows how much I know about it, Philip was even born in the same town as me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Oh well, it's not that I really keep track on it.

I am not much of a footy fan anyway.

Don't you know we let all people telling they are Dutch say our secret password, which is "Schoolschoonmaker"
