Finally getting around to buying PE, but I am hesitating as my current campaign is going quite well right now. Do I need to start a new campaign after I install PE or can I continue to use my current campaign from UE?

Thanks.

Wally, if you make a copy of your "pilots" folder somewhere outside of your UE install you should be covered when you then install PE. If things do get overwritten or disappear you can simply copy and paste the needed pilot files into your new PE install.

Cheers!

Lou

Even better, if you are using JJJ65's Mission Editor, you can easily restore your lost pilots. When you open the program, instead of clicking "open mission file" click "restore backup."

Or, if you don't have the mission editor, you can use Robert_Wiggins's backup utility program, available on Sandbagger's website. Just make sure to run the program before uninstalling UE.

Thank you for the replies. I always make backups of my pilots each time before I fly so your information is great to know.

More information but ... different.

The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,
And assemble the engine again."
