Hello tiopilotos,

 

please verify that in Decals.ini, the DecalLevel and DecalMaxLOD parameters are correct.

 

For the stock "InsignaR/L", I have 0 and 4, respectively, while for the stock "FinFlashR/L", I have 0 and 3, respectively again.

Well, I don't know which numbers are correct for DecalLevel and DecalMaxLO, so take a look on what's inside the decals.ini

did you move the decals folders INTO the /Objects/Decals/*nameofaircraft*/*nameofskin*/D folder???

 

remember -- SF2 don't do decals like the 1stGens do....

 

make sure ALL name are correct ... if the folder name in the decals pathway has been changed (ie: A-7H_MF, as shown), make sure the aircraft folder name matches.

tiopilotos,

 

no worries, it's simply that the required files are not in the decals folder, wherever it is. I don't understand why but actually, the authors placed them in the Texture's folder. So all we have to do is to move them in the appropriate folder and make sure the engine will use them.

 

First, in your decals.ini, change all the "FilenameFormat=A-7h_mf\HAF340\HAFIns" entries to "FilenameFormat=A-7h_mf\HAF340HAFINS.tga", and all "FilenameFormat=A-7h_mf\HAF340\HAFFin" entries to "FilenameFormat=A-7h_mf\HAF340\HAFFIN.tga".

 

Then take the two files "HAFFIN.tga" and "HAFINS.tga" from your "..\Objects\Aircraft\A-7H_MF\HAF340" folder to the "\Objects\Decals\A-7H_MF\HAF340" folder.

 

 

If the roundel still doesn't show up, in the decals.ini file, change their "DecalMaxLOD" parameter from 4 to 3.

 

Good luck smile2.gif

I did this and the air force markings are shown now but the S/N numbers are not shown! I probably have to make some more changes. Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

Well, the decals.ini file is searching for tga files that are stored in the folder "A-7h_mf\HAF340\D\", so make sure that in your "..\Objects\Decals\" folder, you have them exactly where they are supposed to be.

By the way, while sorting my files, I noticed that the A-7H is included in the Mirage Factory A-7 Super Pack:

OR download the SF2 updated versions and the decals work just fine.......work smarter not harder....

 

Also FrankD the reason there are decals in the texture folders is because before TK changed the decal formats the decals worked in that format.

Since there is such a complete pack for A-7, I think there is no reason to modify the existing SF1 A-7H.

To be honest I had seen this great pack before but I had totaly forgotten to download it!

 

Anyway thanks for your help and your reminder!
