Can anyone assist me. I want to change the default pilot picture I am given when in Campaign Mode. I would also like to to do this with the other pilots in my assigned squadrdon.

The IL2 FB manual has some very basis instructionns on how to do this but I have tried them and they don't work. Can anyone help?

Thanks,

i done this a few weeks ago. go to your fb folder and open the dgen folder. there is a file called photo.bmp. replace this with one of your own. it has to be 192x256 and if i remember, someone told me it has to be 8-bit. also in your dgen folder there is a folder called de. it contains pilot photos so i imagine you have to replace them also but i haven't tried this.

You may need to download an editor if you don't have one in order to get the right format - search for & download "IrfanView" - it's free & easy to use. Your custom photo must have the following preferences:

File: BMP

Size: 192x256

Resolution: 72 (for both)

Bit: 8

Palleted & uncompressed
