Yeah with James on that last point MA- if you can make sure before deleting the "incorrect" ones you are losing the old skin not the new one. You should be able to tell by file date and better quality and the points James says to look for.

@Blade_Meister: Yes, I started editing the UE/PE script yesterday; but it might be a bit longer than I hoped. The power supply for my file server went out on Friday, so I've lost all my test files until the replacement arrives. I had to download the script from here along with the copy pasting my posts from above to get started. But I haven't forgotten it.

@OvS I'll have another look at the Voss skin names to make sure.


Not trying to hurry you Sir, just making sure I don't use the wrong one. I am enjoying the last one you made. Thanks for your efforts.

Easy enough, I'll put it in the next versions Remove Mod. Although that won't happen until I get my file server back online.

I've gone a little cross-eyed reading the files, so I understand completely wacky .

Thanks again for doing this.. it really needed to be done.


Thanks. Yes, I've started looking at the skins more closely. I will go through all the Remove skins and resurrect any that aren't old no matter the name.

OK File server is back up (power supply). I've updated it for the last batch of file name changes. Sorry for the delay getting it updated.

Reminder: this is for PE/UE versions only. BH&H2 users should use the mod available at Sandbaggers site.

See later posting for updated file.

Jasta 6 there is a Paul Wenzel and a Richard Wenzle in the Staffel. Both were given the surname Wenzle.

Pauls 4 aircraft should be Wenzel not Wenzle

@Jerbear: I think I have it right in the MOD. After installing, I'm seeing the following skin names for Paul Wenzel (corrected from Paul_Wenzl).
off_Fokker_DR1_ace_t_Jasta 6 1917_Paul_Wenzel.dds
off_Fokker_DR1_ace_t_Jasta 6 1918_Paul_Wenzel.dds
off_Fokker_DVII_ace_t_Jasta 6 1918_Paul_Wenzel.dds
off_Fokker_DVII_OAW_ace_t_Jasta 6 1918_Paul_Wenzel.dds
off_Fokker_EV_ace_t_Jasta 6 1918_Paul_Wenzel.dds

FYI, Richard's last name is spelled Wenzl in the GermanyAces.txt file, so that's the spelling used on all his skins:
Off_Alb_DIII_early_ace_t_Jasta 31 1917_Richard 'Ricardo'_Wenzl.dds
off_Alb_DVa_Ace_t_Jasta 31 1917_Richard 'Ricardo'_Wenzl.dds
off_Alb_DVa_Ace_t_Jasta 31 1918_Richard 'Ricardo'_Wenzl.dds
off_Fokker_DR1_ace_t_Jasta 11 1918_Richard 'Ricardo'_Wenzl.dds
off_Fokker_DVIIF_ace_t_Jasta 6 1918_Richard 'Ricardo'_Wenzl.dds
off_Fokker_DVII_ace_t_Jasta 6 1918_Richard 'Ricardo'_Wenzl.dds

You have both names, Paul Wenzel, and Richard 'Ricardo' Wenzl, correct.
Cheers,

We will remember them.

Can someone confirm something for me? I found a batch of skins which don't have a year in their name. Most of them are squadron skins for the Breguet14_A2; but there are a couple of ace skins in there too.
Here's what I'm seeing in the game:

For the named aces, there must be a year in the filename for it to be found in the campaign. That is "off_Morane_L_ace_t_Esc 3_Georges Marie Ludovic Jules_Guynemer.dds" should be named "off_Morane_L_ace_t_Esc 3 1915_Georges Marie Ludovic Jules_Guynemer.dds"
For squadron files, it appears the year is optional. So if I enlist in Esc 226 in 1918, I see the squadron insignia on all their Breguet 14 A2's planes even though there is not a 1918 in the skin name.

Is this known behaviour?

Also, there is a Morane_L skin for Garros; but the filename has him in Esc 26. I think he should be in Esc 23. Am I correct?

Thanks in advance.

I've updated the Skin Name Fixes MOD to version 1.7. There are few additional renames:
off_Morane_L_ace_t_Esc 3_Georges Marie Ludovic Jules_Guynemer.dds -> off_Morane_L_ace_t_Esc 3 1915_Georges Marie Ludovic Jules_Guynemer.dds
off_Morane_L_ace_t_Esc 12_Jean Marie Dominique_Navarre.dds -> off_Morane_L_ace_t_Esc 12 1915_Jean Marie Dominique_Navarre.dds
off_Morane_L_ace_t_Esc 26_Eugene Adrian Roland Georges_Garros.dds -> off_Morane_L_ace_t_Esc 23 1915_Eugene Adrian Roland Georges_Garros.dds
Off_Se5a-viper_ace_t_AFC-2 1917_Harry_Taylor.dds -> Off_Se5a-viper_ace_t_AFC-2 1918_Harry_Taylor.dds

I've added a couple more removals:
Off_Alb_DIII_early_ace_t_Jasta 10 1917_Werner 'Bubi'_Voss.dds
off_NieuportN27_Lewis_t_RFC-1 1917_Lumaden_Cummings.dds
off_NieuportN27_Lewis_t_RFC-1 1917_John Conrade_Bateman.dds

And I've added a third part to the MOD, a "Skin Name Supplement". These are added skins. In doing my skin checks, I found a couple of squadrons which received updated plane types which do not have corresponding ace skins. In 1917, RFC-40 gets updated to the NieuportN24_Bis_Lewis from the N24_Lewis; and in 1918, RFC-41 and RFC-56 both get updated to the se5a-viper from se5a. Since the skin changes seemed rather minor, I merged the plane model changes onto the ace skins from those squadrons and I put them in here. These are not skin copies, they are a merge of the plane changes on the ace skins. For the viper, the changes are in the radiator area. For the N24_Bis the elevator and rudder both change. There are no changes to the personal markings, so things like plane serial numbers etc. are identical between the pairs of skins. Here's a list of the added skins (constructive critiques are welcome).
off_NieuportN24_Bis_Lewis_ace_t_RFC-40 1917_Albert E 'Steve'_Godfrey.dds
off_NieuportN24_Bis_Lewis_ace_t_RFC-40 1917_Edward 'Mick'_Mannock.dds
off_NieuportN24_Bis_Lewis_ace_t_RFC-40 1917_George Lawrence 'Zulu'_Lloyd.dds
off_NieuportN24_Bis_Lewis_ace_t_RFC-40 1917_John Henry 'Tud'_Tudhope.dds
off_NieuportN24_Bis_Lewis_ace_t_RFC-40 1917_John Lancashire_Barlow.dds
off_NieuportN24_Bis_Lewis_ace_t_RFC-40 1917_Robert Norwood_Hall.dds
Off_Se5a-viper_ace_t_RFC-41 1918_Alfred Stewart_Hemming.dds

Off_Se5a-viper_ace_t_RFC-56 1918_William Spurrett_Fielding-Johnson.dds

If there are other similar cases, point them out to me and I'll see about adding them to the supplement. Sorry UE and PE flyers, the new files are only available for BH&H2; but I have attached the updated batch file for the other updates. I'm actually thinking that, except for updating the MOD as OBD issues patches, this might be the last version of the mod for a while. My name checks are passing for all but 23 skin files, and of those, 7 are for pilots yet to be introduced into the game.

Edit: removed attachment. UE & PE users: get newer version on the later post.

The posted script is for UE/PE users. There is a proper MOD posted on Sandbaggers site for the BH&H2 users. Sandbagger posted that link here: https://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4578180/re-corrected-skin-names-mod#Post4578180

Thank you mandrews. Sorry I always get confused whether what you post here is for WOFF UE/PE or BH&HII. I will take it for granted from now on that what you post here is for WOFF UE/PE.

@Blade_Meister -- That will work. I've been using this thread with the details of the renames; but that's also in the mod readme. Since it's not the first time the question has come up, I think I'll rename the script so it's clear that it's for UE/PE only.

Hallo @Mandrews,

I have added your batch-file "WOFF_UE_PE_Misnamed_Skins.bat.txt" in the mod-list for UE/PE on the sub-forum Wings: Over Flanders Fields - Mods.
So I hope, it's a little help for the user to distinguish between this batch-file for UE/PE and the mod on sandbaggers website for BH&HII.

Greetings

@Becker01. I only see the entry for the UE/PE scipt. Can you create an entry for the BH&H2 mod over at Snadbaggers site.

Hallo @Mandrews,

that is no accident. The list "WOFF PE-Mods" means only mods for PE (UE). I have written in "mods, 2.09.21 ... ", that you can find the mods for BH&H2 in the mod-list on CombatAce. So you can find also your mod 1.7 in that list.

Short:
The mod-list for PE (UE) is here on SimHQ with your attached batch-file.
The mod-list for BH&H2 is on CA with your mod 1.7, download on SB-website.

Greetings

Thanks guys, 7000+ skins supplied by various people and 3rd parties there are bound to be typos. We have fixed many of those and thanks you mandrews and others we'll get closer to fixing the last few that don't load.
We hope to include any fixes in the next Addon/Expansion for WOFF. Currently, we are working on WOTR..
