SF2 WW2 PTO/CBI Nakajima Ki-44 Tojo by Geo
= For SF2, Full-4/5 Merged (Reccomended/Preferred) =
*There is a possibility that this mod will =MAY= work in SF/Wo* 1stGen game installs at any patch level. However, due to some/many of modifications made to fit them into the SF2 environment, not all features will be active.*
** Notex2: The aircraft herin have several different skins ... for the CBI, SoWesPac (ie: Dutch East Indies), (semi) Central Pacific (read: Phillipines), Home Islands defense. I've tried to tag them as best as I can. If running seperate CBI and general PTO mods folders, you may want to seperate them out, or move the texture listing around to fit your usage. **
This model seems to be either the Ki-44-Ib, Ic or IIB, as it carries the 4 12.7mm machine guns. I chose to call it the "Ic".
Skins within the pack are the originals from Geo's 1stGen release. They are (as bes as I can ID them):
29 Sentai (PI)
50 Sentai, 1 Chutai (CBI)
85 Sentai (CBI -china mostly)
23 & 47 both carry the 'white bandage' marking that usually denote Home Islands Defense, but some units around Pelambang, NEI also carried them.
New (semi)compliant SF2 FM was cobbled together. As has become expected, the FM is NOT perfect, and needs further fine-tuning by Experts. A New SF2 style "box art" hangar screen, Geo's original 2 loading screens, converted to jpg, so you can switch to whichever one you like better. Weapons (drop tanks and bombs), guns, a pilot figure and engine sounds are included. All skins remain in their original bmp format, and decal randomization is set to TRUE (for the few number decals we have). As is usual, all lighting is 100% historically correct.
The canopy has been switched to the Standard Animation Keystroke, Shift/0.
Damage textures are new, in DDS format.
As always, fairly easy to follow, highly detailed install instructions are included. So, please read them. Also, give the "Notes" section a read too. All original readmes are included for historical purposes (when discoverable from the archives)
with thanks to Geo!!
