Hey Guys, I don't know if this is the right place to post this question (a couple questions , actually) or not , and if I'm at the wrong forum I apologize. First , when downloading skins at iL2skins , I notice there are skins for the hawk 75A4 and A5 , and you can select the hawk in quick missions, but I saw I don't have any hawk skins folders. What's with that? Did I miss a patch or something? Also, the second question, I guess for Oleg or the development team, I have lots of Italian skins and you can even select Italy in "Country" in the skin selection in quick mission, but why is Italy not in single mission, or pilot career or Campaign? It seems every country is there but Italy. Even Slovakia is ther but no Italy. Why? Can you guys please include Italy in a patch? Thank you in advance.

Oh..and if and when you add Italy, please don't forget to hire Italian actors to get that great language of theirs.

Yes, but Lev has a point: actors should have been hired!

When am I getting the cheque then, max?

Thank you Maxmar, I really appreciate it,. Also, here is a link for anyone wishing custom music for their menus. http://www.netwings.org/library/Forgotten_Battles/Music/
In fact, I even managed to get a copy of the French , German (German anthem "Deutchland Uber Alles" from windturbin is posted already at netwings) and Russian national anthems to my game. I am trying to post them at netwings but until then if anyone wants copies, email me. trucker@sentex.net.

I feel uncertain to write this, but here it comes: I do have the same problem as Lev had: I have not found folders for the Hawk 75 (two variations of them). I just realized this today as I downloaded some inspiring skins for the Hawks. Sorry, I am rather late with my question (it is July and we got the Hawks months ago! LOL) but can any of you explain to me what should I do in the meaning of to use my newly downloaded Hawk-skins. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

I have downloaded and put in use hundreds of skins, so I am not totally incapable with this matter.

Thanks! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/heart.gif

The Hawker is a P-36 exported to France. Look for the two P-36 folders to place your Hawkers skin.

Hi Wallenstein,

Since my original post, I discovered that the Hawk skins go into the P36 folders. I know it makes it confusing why they couldn't have the downloads and folders all named the same. Hope this clears it up for everybody.

Oh, boy! Thanks for your advice but I DID NOT FIND P 36 Folders either. Then I created files "P 36A-3" and "P 36A-4", dropped the downloaded skins there, but it did not work. I wonder if I`m lacking something! P 36 -files never existed in my "skin" -folder before I created them.

However, these P 36 aircrafts do work properly with both the QMB and the FMB as well. The only missing thing is ability to use downloaded skins. Weird (?!?) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Hey Wallstein,

Did you buy the Aces Expansion pack? I'm guessing no.....

Hi, Lev!

Yes, I did buy the Ace Ecpansion Pack. I installed it at and it has worked fine. And as I told you, the two of the P-36 variants work fine the only strange thing being, that I can´t find their skinfolder for the purposes of downloading more skins!

Now, I went to the skin -folder fo the LI-2/FB/AcePack. I tried to create the folders:

P-36A-3 and
P-36A-4

...and I got surprised: I wasn´t allowed to create those files, because they allready exist. I doublechecked this by creatinf those folders elsewhere and then copying them to the proper skin folder, and I got the question:

"Do you want to overwrite the existing folders...etc"

I have created folders for the P 36:s with names:

P 36A-3 and P 36A-4 as well as
Hawk 75A etc...

but those names were not correct. The file name P-36A-3 and P-36A-4 are those names, that are already there within the skinfile. This is how I understand this matter. And because they are there, the program prompted a warning not letting be destroy these files. Right. This I dop understand.

BUT THEN COMES THE QUESTION: is it possible, that this particular aeroplane (two skinfolders of course) P-36A-3 and P-36A-4 is invisible? This is the only answer I can think about.

I also checked on the Ace Pack CD if I could reinstall just the skinfolder in the meaning of to get the P-36 in visible shape. But it was not available just like that. I think I`ll re-install the whole Ace Pack. It should fix the problem.

Lev, thanks for your advice. I try to reinstalling and if it does not help, I keep asking for your help, if you don´t mind.

Have a nice day
Wallstein
