I have downloaded and installed several privately-produced skins from a popular IL2 website. Some of them have worked OK, but some others do not show up as options in the advanced options page of the mission builder. I have checked, and the skin's graphics are where they belong in the respective plane's paintschemes/skins folder of the IL2 directory. Does anybody have any ideas as to what I may have done wrong? Thanks for any help you can offer.

The main causes of skins not showing up is either the name is causing problems i.e. the two dots over a U in certain German words (umlate?) or the skin in not in the correct format. It needs to be size=1.00MB,dimensions= 1024x1024 pixels, 8 bit depth bitmap image.
Check the propeties of the image or rename it.
Hope this helps.
