I wonder if anyone else has had this problem in the 1.2beta after download? I have downloaded many P-51 skins over the past 2 months,but in the P-51 missions ( QuickMP & otherwise ) I don't seem to be able to access them,or substitute them...Have I missed something? Do I need to go into program files & change something-need a little help here...Thanks!

make sure the skins are an 256 color,indexed BMP file and that 1024x1024 in size or 512x512.( I use the 1024). Then have them in the correct folder.When I do some skins and it doesn't show it is usually that I forgot the color setting and left it at rgb,24 bit instead of 16.

There are two mustang version and they each use a diffrent folder for their skins. The flyable version is the P-51D5nt and the skins you've previously downloaded, are all int the P-51D20NA folder. Copy and paste them in the "flyable mustang" folder and PRESTO, you can fly all of your favorite skins /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

BTW (promoting my own P-51 skin) Do you allready own this one?
