Hi all,

I have just completed the first beta of version 2.10.

http://www.aces-artwork.co.uk/MAT_Manager_v2_10_WiP_Tags.jpg

The new version will include a substantial update to the weathered Lufwaffe bomber and twin-engined fighter lettering/numbering including many new set of alternative coloured lettering and numbering as well as outlined types. All of the coloured sets, a total of 18, are available as 1st Staffel options for use in the QMB. I have totally re-done this part of the interface and made it the same style as the single-engined numbering. The above, including all the randomised alternatives has taken three days of solid work but I like the results.

Also new in v2.10 will be an option to toggle between large and small Geshwader unit coding for all Luftwaffe bomber and twin-engined fighters.

A new feature in v2.10 will be the inclussion of 10 "tabs" at the top of the interface. These represent ten different wartime "theatres" and selecting one of these tabs automatically selects a series of national markings and/or numbering/lettering styles suitable for use in that theatre. You may not prefer these selections in which case any of the options setup by a tab can be manually over-riden. I hope that this new feature will make it quick and simple to switch between different theatres of war/wartime period.

I will be sending beta 1 to the beta testers later this evening and hope to have it released before the New Year.

Regards

Aces

Thank You for your Mat Manager. I really enjoy it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I was wondering if you could Make a Manager to change the numbers on carriers. Mainley the Essex Class, and the escort (baby flattops) carriers. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Thank You for Your time,

AN excellent feature! There are so many marking-types in your utility that i`ve always been a bit stuck in what to use for a particular year in a particular theatre, especially with German aircraft (but it`s also a bit of a problem with other nations too).

It`ll be nice to have HISTORICAL settings that are quickly selectable rather than `guessing` what`s right. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Thnx.
