Hmm, If you make it a BF109E file then it should work as long as I copy the file into both the Bf109E and 109E1A0 folders. Not the ideal solution but a workaround that should do the trick, with the side effect that the E-4 can use the skin as well. The normal E-4 isn't used in the Legacy arena though, only the E-4Aa is, so shouldn't be any real problem. It should be around a month until the FL2074 update will be ready, so don't have to stress it.

The second line in the .ppv file seems to be the path for the default skin of the plane. If setting it to "Spit9.vfc", then all wingmen will have the Spitfire IXe default skin.

I'll see if Bollok can check this issue, he knows more about how to manipulate the 3d model files.

P.S. Is there any changes to the existing bf109k_3ppv skin, "Bf 109K-4 "Blue 7" JG 27, Prague, May 1945", that you included in the email, sir? It looks to be the same skin as the one currently ingame for the K-4.


Cheers!

Will be working on the E-4 copy of the E-1 "Yellow 10" just after the Cowboys game. It's exciting and getting
my adrenaline up, especially in my "itching fingers". :o

I would put in the last "Blue 7" you got. I did not find a .vfc file for it in my computer. I must have sent it to you or
to Bollok back in 2017 to make a .vfc from my .psd files. The last modification for bf109k4fus.psd I have for it is
dated: 1/6/17, 12:13 PM. It looks like I didn't do anything to it since then. There is a G-4 "Rote 7" in there
because we don't have the G-4 as an option in the menu. I don't see any problem with either of them.

The Bf109 e1 "Yellow 10" is working out as an E4
and is 90% ready. I am working on getting the
landing gear covers to work. As you may know
they are one-sided: you see them only on the
far side when viewed from the wingtip. Go fly any
E-4 except "Schwarze 3" and "Schwarze 8", drop
the gear and you can see what I mean. If anyone
remembers how to fix this, let me know. I fixed it
once before.

ROBERT!

I think I solved the problem with the E-1 "Yellow 10" not showing up. I got it to show up.
The plane shows up in the tower, and it shows up in game.

I'm still working on a minor problem with it and maybe you can help. The text description
(name.txt) is not showing up. The name in the tower is "109e1a0001" for some reason. I'm
sending you the files so you can work on it too. Check your email.

BTW, the E-4 painted as this E-1 works too. I'm sending all the files in two different emails
to you.

Post subject:  Re: Getting the new Doras into the game

As seen on page 2 of this thread, Robert would like me to work
on 2 new Dora skins. They are great looking colors and I am
ready to work.

It would help immensely if I had the PSD (Photoshop) documents
of the FW 190d_4 skin or any 190 skin for that matter. It seems that
someone did _2 and _3 planeskins, so what I'm hoping is that
someone knows who painted these, or who might have the
fuse.psd and wing.psd Photoshop documents. Anyone?

Thanks, Art Flores

Happy news!
The update is now finally live and available for download from the start screen menu!



Also if anyone knows the email address of Target (Matt Davis), or anyone else who might have the .PSD files for the Fw 190's and the other planes in Warbirds, then feel free to help Iart7 out.


Cheers!

Hi Robert.. Just an FYI.. I did the update and jumped in a B17F to see how it was now. Got up to around 10k and climbing when I was accosted by a 109 coming in firing at my 6.... I ping PK.. No other damage.....I thought this was addressed?

I made a video the other night. I flew up the tail of a b17 and hit it with 5 37mm shells. No visible damage.
Tempted to start posting these on youtube.
