There is a black bar near the top of your screen. Select "My Space" and then "Profile".

You have to have the images somewhere on the web. The Avatar/Picture URL is the one to the left under your name, the signature is what comes at the end of your post.

It's the same as if you want to post a pic, in the sense that you should give a url. For example, you just put this in the field:

http:// www . domainname . com/ pathname/ file.jpg

I put spaces in so it wouldn't link to this bogus example URL.

How do you host the files? You have to register somewhere for some free webspace. There are plenty of websites that will give you that, but at the cost of putting up with advertising. I don't know them myself.

Maybe it's just a small mistake? Check your address and spacing and the brackets and such. Don't give up!

Sorry, I should have been more specific. For the avatar by your name, you just need to enter the name of the URL. In the signature however, you need to use UBBCode to tell the forum software to interpret the URL as an image to be displayed. Otherwise it does what is it has done here, it interprets the URL as a *link* to the image.

You can read up on UBBCode by looking in the help, but here's a shortcut version. The opening tag is the three letters "img", but surrounded by brackets [ and ] instead of quotes. After that, enter the URL as you have it already. After the URL, close again with brackets, but put a / in front of the "img". That means you have a [ followed by /img followed by ].

Clear as mud? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Edit: Here's a link (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=faq&s=400102&x_frameset=Y) to where you can find information on the UBBCode.

You're trying to fly in the USAAF dynamic campaign withought having il2dcg installed and configured.

Instead of trying to start the "* USAAF Fighter" campaign select "The Real Deal" instead - and enjoy...

You need to put the " [ img ] " tag before the url and the " [ /img ] " tag after.

I've put spaces so you can read them.

The pic under your name is your 'avatar' and is set up in your profile.
Click on "my space" at the top of the page and select profile.
Then paste the url (without [ img ] tags) in the image or avatar box.

Good luck.
