http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gifI find that in mat file, blend will cause very strange high light in my GF4 card when graphic setting is on Perfect. Yes it's in my mod files. Did you notice it? It seem you didn't use blend in your files.

Aces, first off the new .ini command works great! No delays-Yippee!

However, I am getting an issue with RAF markings. The numbers are being cut out on most planes except Spits and Hurries, and I'm not getting any change on the roundels at all (no matter which RAF roundel I pick). Any ideas?

Hmm. I've got a problem. As soon as I open Il2 Mat Manager, I get the message "Unable to locate il2.exe. You need to specify your FB or PF installation path."

I then get the program location box and point it to the FB folder and hit OK. Then the same error message appears all over again.

What am I doing wrong? The only way to exit Il2 Mat Manager is to ctrl/alt/delete my way out too.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Ugh! No worries. I was using the old IL2.exe not the old IL2FB.exe. Silly boy.

Hi chaps,

There's a bug in v2.00 regarding the British national markings drop-down box options not displaying. I couldn't test the new feature to work with v3.03 because we didn't have v3.03 when v2 of MAT Manager was released. I'm going to re-compile my v2 code with the code fixed and just release a v2.01 IL2-MAT Manager.exe which sorts this out.

AFAIK these are the only options not working when selecting the v3.03 option.

Regards

Aces
