MiG-17 skin mis-mapped ?

Recommended Posts

I'm using the Combined SF2 pack with Exp 1, patched to Jun 10.

 

I was putting cockpits into all the SF2V A&G Expanded VPAF MiG's yesterday, and while testing the results, I noticed that the MiG-17's left speed flap appears to be mis-mapped. The ouside of the left speed flap looks like it has been mapped to the inside of the speed flap, not the outside of the speed flap as it should be. The right side is perfectly okay, it's just the left side that is wrong.

 

Thinking it might be a bad MiG-17 "lod", I tested some original 1st Gen TW MiG-17 "lod's" in it's place, but no change. Is there anyway to "fix" this problem or does anybody else have a solution ???

I justed checked both the Mig-17 and the mig-17f and don't see anything wrong . Could you take a screenshot of it and post it ? Might be the .BMP thats wrong?

I tried different skins last night too, but they all showed the same problem. I will post a picture when I get home from work tonight.

 

The most important thing is that appears to be just MY problem and not a general problem (if I understand you correctly).

 

If all else fails, I might just have to do a "reinstall" to see if that fixes it.

TK did change the mapping on alot of the SF2 aircraft. So if you are using an SF1 skin, it might not work. I know the F-4's for example are different.

Thanks for the tip. The skins that I was using were the ones from several add-on packs. I will try the standard skins tonight and see if that makes a difference.

Su-7s (all of them!!) have also been remapped, so a lot of the pre-existing (ie: 1stGen) skins will "off". Skyhawks, too, I think, have had some mapping changed

Dave, Wrench:

Thanks for the tip. After checking, that is exactly what the problem was. TW re-mapped the MiG-17's rear fuselage in SF2.

 

The really interesting thing is that back in 2006, TW had the same mapping on the MiG-17 as the current SF2 series. It must have been in the 2008 patch he changed it to where the skins in the mod showed the speed brakes.

No, it ws the regular, plain old MiG-17.

 

I am experimenting with adding the old Charlie's Aces to the fantastic Air & Ground War Expanded Mod, and so far so good once I got al the MiG's to fly. :clapping::drinks:
