Hello.

I have re installed complete SF2 and updated it. After I copied all content StrikeFighters2 (I backed up before), addon planes are not showing up? I can only see stock planes. May someone tell me what to do?

Like Russouk2004 said his SF2 is pointing at the stock folder with the stock planes in it. He needs to change it so it points to the folder he created from his backup. At least that's how I decipher it.

I have backed up entire addons I have downloaded and used including planes, guns, weapons, all addons. After I copy them, I cannot see them in Strike Figthers 2. However, when I copied them in Strike Figthers 2 Europe they are working. I am really confused.

You have tried to delete the  files, options. ini and version .ini? of the backup

post options ini ...(bottom section) and show us where the files you adding are going...take screen of folders

 

example...my installs are (mods)   (in Users\Saved games\ options.ini etc etc point to:......   E:\Strike Fighters\

below is my test install..just basics and no stock a\c etc...

so my options ini is thus...

[Mods]
ModsEnabled=TRUE
Directory=E:\Strike Fighters\SF\Test
Editors=StrikeFighters2

[ScreenShots]
Directory=E:\Strike Fighters\SF\Test\ScreenShots
Format=JPG

You ARE putting the "new" files into the correct mods folder, yes??

take a screen shot of your folder tree, and post it here

I have re-installed Windows and SF completely, so I will try today. I hope it will work.

Something like this happened to me...when I copied (backed up) my folders and copied them back onto a new computer...all the files were in RO mode. I had to select the top folder and remove the Read Only flag...then it worked fine. Good Luck.

      View File Screen Overhaul - (1920 x 1080)
      Strike Fighter Project 2 – Screen Overhaul v1.2 Customizable Edition
       
      The new version of SF2 Screen Overhaul 1.2 is now released.  Here is the following screen this mod completely overhaul:
       
      -          Main screen
      -          Single mission screen
      -          Mission editor screen
      -          Hangar (Default) screen
      -          Loadout screen
      -          Planning screen
      -          Roster screen
      -          Campaign screen
      -          Campaign editor screen
      -          Pilot records screen
      -          Options screen
       
      It does not yet cover another screen.  It is work in progress (WIP) for now.  What I am seeking for is feedback that will help me improving the mod further. It is one of my biggest projects I ever worked on for SF2. It gave me opportunity to grow a new skill I enjoy doing. 

      NOTE:  Now that SF2 Screen Overhaul is becoming a customizable version. If you make any mods that adds or change anything to this mod, please add my name and mod name to your credit part.
       
      You can contact me by PM in CombatAce (I am known as Eagle114th there) or Strike fighter series Discord chat (My username is Magic Dragon, so you can find me there too.)

      Version 1.2 NOTES:
       
      Buttons customization instruction:
      In Menu folder (SF2 mod folder), you will see various SF2 screen named as “BUTTONS_HANGAR, MAIN, OPTIONS, etc...), there are folders for each button.  In order, to change the color of buttons, go to one of button folder, you will see different folders for various color.  Copy the file from there and overwrite the files in any BUTTONS_(SCREEN) folder.

      For example, in BUTTONS_HANGAR, if I want to change the color of “LOADOUT” square button to blue; I go to the folder “LOADOUT”, then “Blue” folder, copy the files: LOADOUT0.bmp, LOADOUT1.bmp, and LOADOUT2.bmp.  Then I paste (Overwrite) the files in BUTTONS_HANGAR.
       
      Screens and Buttons customization Templates
      In different “BUTTONS_(different screen names)”, there are folder “_Templates’.  You can use it to change the designs, colors, or anything you want to do with the screen background or buttons. 
       
       


      This mod uses a font known as Orbitron.  I included it in _Fonts folder.

      I want to express my sincerely big THANKS to Menrva, Wrench, UllyB, Daddyairplanes, Wilches, JosefK, FalonCAF, and everyone else in CombatAce community for making this possible.  You all have been a huge help. 

      Because of Operation Desert Storm 30 years anniversary great mod, I was able to study the codes on how SF2 menu work, which led me into developing new menu for SF2.  This mod is truly fun to fly in SF2.  If anyone hasn’t tried it yet, I highly recommend it.


      There are detailed instruction that explains how to install in the proper ways in README file.  LEASE READ IT BEFORE INSTALLING! 

      I included the plans for the next version in the readme too.  

      The feedback are always welcomed!

      I did some experiment on converting the regular screenshot into 1970s and older photo style.  I thought "Why not?"  so here it is:

      Parked A-4s - Rregular screenshot

      Parked A-4s - 1970s style screenshot

      Parked A-4s - Older style screenshot


      Parked MiG-21s - Regular screenshot

      Parked MiG-21s - 1970s style screenshot


      Parked MiG-21s - Older style screenshot

      Hi All, just a very brief (new) post to indicate that - for those who are wondering where my WOTR GPU Tuner Patch can be found, as well as the little FM tweaks pack that gives a Mk.II Hurricane and Spitfire, as well as a BF-109 E7 - including links to helpful performance tips regarding the Hurri and Spitty - they are all located in the post linked below:

      Good evening everyone,
      I have a few questions about MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI and .STR files;
       
      1) since I am looking for the way to do further changes to HUDDATA and GUI.  I did some researches and I found out that if I edit MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI, I will be able to do more customization to the in-flight screen.  I am unable to find MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI.  So where do I find it? I extracted flightdata and there is no MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI. Where can I find MESSAGESYSTEMS.INI?

      2) About .STR, I noted there are .STR on both flight and menu folders after extracting both using CAT extractor.  What kind of program is required, in order, to edit .STR files?  Or is there no way to mod them properly yet?

      As always, the information and advice are appreciated.

      Cheers!
