Hi Kevin here is mytais note on how to which is public let me know if you need anything more.

 

Mytai01's 1966 VMFA-115 F-4B skin

 

This skin depicts the 1966 F-4B's of VMFA-115 Silver Eagles.

 

Installation:

1.Drop the USMCVMFA115 66 folder into your Objects/Aircraft/F-4b folder.

2.Add the following lines to the F-4b.ini:

 

[TextureSetXXX]

Directory=USMCVMFA115 66

Name=VMFA-115 Silver Eagles 66'

Nation=USMC

Squadron=VMFA115

Specular=0.30

Glossiness=0.75

Reflection=0.00

 

The "XXX" should be replaced by the number that follows the last texture set number.

 

I have followed this and still have no luck??

That would be used for your textureset ini; the part of the text added to the main ini that tells the skin what to do.

 

Out of curiosity, IS there a textureset.ini with the skin??? Even if you add it to the F-4B.ini, you may still need one in the skin folder.

 

What I need to see is there a decals.ini. That's what tells the game engine where, and what kind of, marking to add to the skin.

Wrench, I don't think that the decals.ini is the problem here. I have installed several mytai's skin and never had a problem with them. (Except for their size, perhaps. Well, quality has its price. :wink: )

Topcat, have you changed the name of the skin folder in any way? Because in my opinion that is the usual explanation for decals not showing up.

 

Example: (from mytai's 1971's VF51 skin)

[Decal001]

MeshName=wing_left_outer

DecalLevel=0

DecalFacing=TOP

FilenameFormat=f-4b\pacusnvf51 71\D\usa <- if you change the name of the skin folder 'pacusnVf51_71' the decals won't show up anymore.

Position=-4.0,-0.94

Rotation=37.5

Scale=3.2

DecalMaxLOD=3

I'm at work so can't check, but from memory you might find that the problem is the [space] in the folder name. As I recall it, the fileformat line can't be read if there's a space in it. For example fileformat=f-4b\usmcvmfa115 66\D\wtt should be changed to fileformat=f-4b\usmcvmfa115_66\D\wtt.

 

This will mean changing the tile of the skin folder and the f-4b.ini file entry to match.

 

There is also a maximum length to the number of characters that can be used to identify a decal. Your full path entry is getting up there.
