Hi Robert. I think a routine that cross-checks the actual names in the datafile to the skins in the folder would be great.

We tried this visually, and were asked to make absolutely sure we were correct with out work, but man... I guess mistakes still slipped by. There were just so many skins, over 4K I think?
That kind of routine would be great and could give you as a user a list to make your own corrections.

I will eventually speak with Pol and see if there is a way we can a patch to just the skins folder. Meaning, instead of burdening the main game patch, maybe offer a seperate update patch to the skins. It's hard because as you can see.. you'll get a patch, to a patch, to a patch.... etc. But it needs to be done, there are already enough errors to justify the need for it.

Guys, I'm not offended at all. I appreciate you guys finding these issues and bringing them forward. It's important. As you can imagine (and I'm sure any of the team that spent all our time making these skins for the game feels the same) it's heart-breaking to think that even one of my works would not be seen because of a spelling error or that I put a space somewhere... etc.

So please, have at it. When you find 'em, post 'em. We'll eventually work something out to get better system to correct it for you, but for now.... it's manual, done by the user.

All the best,

OvS

Found a new one: Jasta 5, Alb DIII early. Both Joseph Mai and Hans Berr are assigned the same skin with the "all seeing eye" on a pyramid, Masonic, I guess. I don't know for sure which is correct but on the net I see models with this symbol used for Mai so I suspect it s Berr that is not correct because none of his later skins shows anything like this. Mai isn't using it later either though, uses a quarter moon after this aircraft.

That one is ok. Hans Berr and Joseph Mai share that plane at one point. You won't see them flying it at the same time.

Well jerbear now that you have started this are you going to make a list of changes to be made for us OCD types to fix things?

True story. One needs to rename the skins in the skins folder.
