#657480 - 04/22/01 03:49 AM Skinmaster Utility  


I downloaded this from the WW2 Fighters site over at I can use it fine to change the ini file setting. The problem is getting it to do what it was designed to do: install plane skins and terrrain mods. I get skinmaster to handle the Zips for these files, and the progaram acts as if all is well and even tells me that install is complete. BUT, when I go to the game nothing has changed and when I check the Janes folder in Windows Explorer, the new modifications don`t even show up! Does anyone else use this progaram or know how to get it to do what it is supposed to do?

I had a time getting Skin Master to work and I still don't understand all of it. As you already know the read me could be a little more direct for dummies like me. For the utility to load a skin you have to go to the Jane's World War 2 Fighters directory and open the Data folder. There you will find a file called "WW2.sqs". This is a read only file and that's the reason the skin won't load. Go to that file's properties and uncheck the read only box. If you want the "view Screenshot" function of Skin Master to work, you must have a screen shot bitmap in the folder your other skin files are in but you must name it "screenshot.bmp". Hope this helps. S!
