Morning gentlemen,

yesterday I installed official skinpack. Downloaded from "Buy now" page, disabled my antivirus during the installation, patched the game to 4.11 I also ran clone and the other device in toolbox folder (in the game directory).
After I launched the game, everything looks fine, version is correct (4.11 4241), skins are available for use on aircraft I tested.
BUT
After I started a mission (any - campaign, quick etc), loading takes quite longer than normal and ends with error window that says something like "Aircraft xy is not loading and is not working" (I dont quote, forgot to write it down). The first time the multiple windows popped up for something like 10-15 aircraft and after closing them all, the game crashed. Second time, only one window appeared and game crashed again. Third time, one window appeared, but mission loaded ok. I tried to fly the mentioned aircraft and it is flyable, no problm.

I really wanted to fly already, so I didnt test it more, but if any of you got any advice, I will be glad. I am kinda lazy to reinstall the game, but will do it, if you guys think I should.

Thank you for any advice and have a nice day.

Try to run BDPStamp.exe located at Toolbox folder. That would probably fix your problem with aircraft missing/loading errors without to reinstall whole WOFF UE package.
BTW, first mission loading takes always longer time.

I think the game should work for you now, without errors. You probably mentioned error that appears if your aircraft *.bdp files are older (their creation date) than associated *.xdp files. This should fix BDPStamp.exe application, that refreshes date attribute of all *.bdp files
Do not give up and test/run WOFF UE again wink. It should work now

Sounds like a corrupt install of WOFF UE not the skins pack. The Skins pack only has skins in it.

Check your drive for disk errors,
Disable AV if it continues sounds like it's deleting things!

The aircraft cloner runs at the end of the WOFF UE main install, there is normally no need to do it again (see the FAQ section 2, 3 etc).

That is strange. Can you make a Printscreen of error window?

OK, thx.
Is it always the same aircraft? It looks like bad installation of aircraft folder, or OBD Software keys in Windows registry are somehow corrupted. Do not you have set aircraft (or parent) folder as a read only? Did not you install OBD Software to Program Files folder? I would recommend reinstallation of WOFF UE, but not to Program Files folder due to Windows UAC. Backup your pilots and game settings with Backup utility first. You do not need to run Toolbox.exe or BDPStamp.exe after reinstall- this is done automatically during installation.
If it is the only aircraft with error, I can provide you with valid files.

BTW, this error message is typical for aircraft *.xdp files modified and newer than their associated *.bdp files. And, as Pol already pointed, it does not have anything with Historial Skin pack installation. This pack is installed to separate folder and does not alter aircraft folder/files.

Yes, It is for the same aircraft always. Except for the first time, when this popped up for maybe 15 aircraft. I didnt set anything anyhow. Only thing I set myself is CFS3.exe and WOFF.exe to compatibility mode to avoid the black screen after mission problm (which it solved btw :)).
My WOFF UE is installed directly in E:OBD Software... Actually OT question, would it help to increase performance, if I install it to my SSD?M Currently its on the slow HDD (not SSD).
Ok I will reinstall WOFF UE completely, but I have a question about backup files. Do I need to copy paste those files somehow? Or do they just stay in PC after uninstall and apply themselves automatically?

Prior to reinstall WOFF UE completely, try to extract these files to your aircraft/Nieuport17_lewis_SQ1 folder Aircraft files .
Regarding backup files - download User Files Backup Utility from WOFF web page Backup utility .
Regarding SSD - I do not have it personally, but many users here can confirm it would help to shorten mission loading times and when 3D, access to data textures/scenery.

When you uninstall WOFF I strongly suggest that you follow the instructions in the WOFF UE FAQ file (item #17). You can find this file on the "help" page.
