OK I've updated the batch file to avoid the duplicate files from showing up in the QC lists. The bat file creates a backup directory in your Skins folder called "Misnamed Skins" (to match its name) which holds the original files under their original names. It then copies the skins out of that directory and gives them the correct name. Like the previous version, it finds your WOFF installation from the registry; but it now stops with an error message if it can't find the install. Also like before, it is designed so you can to run this command multiple times without error messages. I've only tested it on my (Win10-x64) system; but it should work for others (insert usual disclaimers here).

To run the command, download the attached file, rename it from WOFF_Misnamed_Skins.bat.txt to WOFF_Misnamed_Skins.bat and then double click on it.

Let me know if you have any problems.

EDIT -- See later post for updated file

Thanks mandrews we will at some point sort out some of the skins, and remake the skins pack hopefully.

Johannes Gildemeister

He has three Jasta 20 skins mislabeled as Gildmeister Fokker DVII Pfalz DIIIa 1917 and 1918

Should read Johannes_Gildemeister.

JerB type the full correct names here please and I'll fix them my side too.

Looking in the skins folder as I have it is says
off_Fokker_DVII_ace_t_Jasta 20 1918_Johannes_Gildmeister
etc

Pol -- I can't take credit for finding them -- Jerbear found most of them -- but the script does make a nice record of the errors. I figured I'd maintain it until a new skins pack is made. Then we can start it again smile.

EDIT: See later post for updated bat file.

@jerber -- Are you sure about this? He's showing up in my list (at least under QC) without the rename, and the only difference I'm seeing in your rename is the capital O and that shouldn't matter to Windows.

I should have said it doesn't show in campaign rather than game. WOFF can be a little finicky about the skins. I have found that some skins will show up in QC but do not in Campaign even when the pilot's name is correct. Maybe a little glitch somewhere. It sometimes helps just to rename the just the way it was before.

In this case though, when I changed the capital O it appeared in game (campaign). Sometimes skins are slow to show, taking a few missions to appear. That is a possibility, but I tried it three times before I went to the skin file to look. I would check in campaign to see if the skin appears or not on your machine. If so, then I jumped the gun.

Sorry jerber, I haven't had the time to look at this yet. I'll try the campaign and see what happens.

Fixed (updated bat file attached). Actually, the problem is that there's a space between his last name and the file suffix.

EDIT: Just discovered 9 more skins that have this same problem. I'll upload a new bat file shortly.

For the record, here's a complete list of all the skins with a space between the last name and the file suffix (I'm assuming they are all bad). Updated bat file attached.

hi mandrews one error in the batch file I noticed

Off_nieuport17_Lewis_ace_t_Esc 38 1917_Georges Felix_Madon.dds
is using an N16 skin which breaks in game.

Should be copying an N17 skin not an N16 skin.
so copy
Off_nieuport17_Lewis_ace_t_Esc 38 1916_Georges Felix_Madon.dds
to
Off_nieuport17_Lewis_ace_t_Esc 38 1917_Georges Felix_Madon.dds


The error is in BH&H II, we will fix t in 1.09.

Thanks Pol. Sorry for breaking BH&H II. I went back and looked at the message that reported the problem, and I completely misinterpreted it.

Attached is the corrected skin correction script for those running UE or PE. You're safe running it even if you have before. Note that the script will always show the last file being copied. This is it making sure that you have a good version of the Madon's 1917 N17 skin.

EDIT: remove script. Latest version is in a later post.

Thanks mandrews.

BTW anyone who may want to use this - the script is useful for UE or PE users, but no need to run it on BH&H II.

Here's one for the books. Long story so bear with me, believe me it won't take as long to read this long winded document as it did for me to figure this out.

I made some skins for Jasta 73. Rudolf Schultz von Dratzig's skins would not appear. They did appear in QC because just about any name will work there, but not in Campaign where it counts. I tried every trick in the book to make it appear in campaign but no go.
R
He has a WOFF DVII skin and I could not get it to come up either. It was mislabeled Rudolf Schulz von_Dratzig, so it was mislabeled to begin with but when I corrected this it also would not appear no matter what clever ruese (however the heck out spell it) I tried on the Sim.


I finally came up with the bright idea to look in the CampaignData file under Aces and found that the sacred naming convention had been desecrated, HERESY!!! see below. I found this to be the case in his Dossier as well, shoulda looked there first, will know better next time.

So, I changed all his skins to Rudolf_Schultz von Dratzig and "VOIELA."

Upshot is, you need to change the name of his DVII skin to Rudolf_Schultz von Dratzig. [Linked Image]

Nice work @jerbear. I have attached an updated script for WOFF UE/PE versions. Since the skins are now an official part of the game, I'm avoiding creating a similar script for BH&H2. I'm assuming Pol will capture these issues and put them in a future patch. The main reason for avoiding a BH&H2 version is that I'm not sure what messing around with the files would do to a future patch when the names get fixed officially. I'm willing to be talked into writing such a script (or figuring out how to create a MOD that does the same thing), providing I can do it without breaking anything in the game or the update process.

Also a word of caution for script users out there: I've upgraded to BH&H2 and so can't test the script in a working UE/PE game setup. I used to be the first victim when I broke things. While I won't be making any real changes to the script other than adding other re-namings, I can't promise there won't be typos.

EDITED: Removed the batch file. See later post for latest version.

OK I've poked around a bit and discovered this MOD stuff isn't as hard as I thought. I've created a MOD that works for BH&H2 and includes the Rudolf Schultz von Dratzig skin name fix (the Madon Nieuport fix is in an official patch from OBD). The problem is I don't know where to post the file (it's too big for an attachment here). I was going to post it on CombatAce; but since most of the description points to this thread, that just didn't seem right. In addition, I think you need an account over on CA to download it, and I don't know if that's a problem for people. The other obvious choice is to send it to @Sandbagger for his site (@Sandbagger: are you willing to host it, and if so, how can I get it to you?).

Opinions?
