  1. If only they'd fly this fast in combat instead of turning all the time...
  2. Ok, there's already a whole bunch of skins posted here: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/18377-skins-creation-and-czar-pwcg/?p=288218 by Panzerbär. (Over 200 in TOTAL!!! All Luftwaffe but MORE than enough to crack on with.) Presumably, as they have been offered for use by virtue of having been posted in the thread, the permission to use them exists so how do I assign the appropriate liveries already posted here so that they will appear in the "Squadron" category? They're selectable as it stands now in game under "Loose" since that setting obviously accesses skin folder for the the appropriate aircraft type in game but I would like to categorize and assign the appropriate skins to their squadrons where possible and then maybe do a little editing in Photoshop just to take a decent template and alter the aircraft number or add things like a Geschwader Kommodore's ensign ect. I've poked around in the RoF campaign to see how that works but making similar edits to PWCG for BoX causes the program to get upset and refuse to run. Is it going to be possible for me to do this myself or do you have to add them into the generator at your end? I tried renaming a skin to "FW109A3_SKIN_01" since this string is already present in the "I_JG51.json" file here: "skins": [ { "skinName": "FW190A3_SKIN_01", "planeType": "fw190a3", "startDate": "19421101", "endDate": "19430331", "squadId": 20111051, "country": "Germany", "category": "Squadron", "definedInGame": false } ] but this did not result in my renamed skin being available under the "Squadron" heading (Having the Squadron box checked in the skin configuration screen). In fact it changed nothing at all since I'm guessing this is just the default skin for that unit and that the gaem simply assigned what was already present. Do I need to add these skins instead to the .json file in "BoSData\Input\Skins\Configured" to have them show up? This is where I ran into problems with the program not launching.
  3. Tired of that washed out, overexposed vanilla experience robbing you of your situational awareness? Would you like to be able to see planes at a reasonable distance without tweaking the confing? Has that cold bluish tint, lack of definition, and completely rubbish horizon hiding distance fog given you the blues??? Is your life lacking colour, passion, saturation and a credible representation of terrain and sky? Has fiddle farting about with the gamma settings in startup.cfg left a contrast induced tumor in your eyeballs? Well, Papa Pilto has the solution to your woes, this is my Reshade preset, works quite well on 1080p at 0.8 gamma. HDR and bloom must be turned off, I haven't added antialiasing or sharpening since other utilities handle this better and the game's sharpening is breddy gud imo. Calibrate your black and white points (brightness and contrast) on your monitor before using and don't bitch at me if you mess something up. All you gopniks need to do is install reshade by googling it and following the instructions, put my preset in your 1CStudios/Battle of X /bin folder and your game will turn from this: Into this: SHARE AND ENJOY!: http://www.mediafire.com/file/w6hfafw6cj74ttx/Il2BoX.ini Your menus and stuff might look a bit weird (darker and some sepiaish tint), shouldn't incur any FPS hit.
  4. So where are the skins PW? I think that is what SShrike was asking. Is there a skin pack posted somewhere here??? Because I'm darned if I can find it. I'd rather not be randomly downloading all the skins from the forum all day in the hopes that I get the ones that PWCG uses. If anyone has a repository I'd be happy to host a link on Mediafire The skins add so much, I know there's vastly less than there is for RoF but every little bit helps.
  5. Hint: It's the one thing worth fighting a war for. Ironic, nicht war? Ha ha ha ha ha! Anyway, I'll leave you Clampetts to your banjo lessons.
  6. What it the first casualty of war?
  7. Fix'd but your point is well taken, there were plenty of victims.
  8. lol, I just needed the year of release so I could get it elsewhere *yarrrrr* P.S. "Idi i smiotri" is worth a watch, mainly propaganda that totally misinterprets the role of Einsatzgruppen but a good watch nonetheless since the message it conveys is legit even if the historical content is not.
  9. (((huffpost))) y u do this Brano??? I found it thanks to your link so kudos.
  10. Hook a brother up wit a link fam? (The story of Dunkirk really deserves a mini series to do it justice imo)
