Please be bit more specific in 'ACES directory' in the PF Manual.

What page?
What context?

(If I search for ACES in Manual.pdf, I only find references to aces as in pilots being aces, or 'places' http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif ....)

Aces as in pilot aces, pag. 18 and I quote:

'During missions you can be attacked by enemy
aces. The list of aces can be modified in the corresponding folder of the game, and you can use custom skins.'

Where's that folder? Any clue?

Look inside DGen's folder buddy...

Tip: you can use the search function in any open folder of your computer, specifying name and characteristics of the file(s) you're looking for, anyway.

There is no aces folder in DGen nor is there a file named or containgning the word 'ACES'.

What next?

In the DGen folder look for files with .DB extensions (Chichi.DB, CoralSea.DB, Guadal1.DB etc..). Open the one that corresponds to the campaign you wish to fly using notepad or wordpad and find the section under the [Aces] heading. In some files it doesn't exist and you may have to add it. It goes in after the [Planes] section and before the [Operations] section and looks like this (from the file Bagration.DB):

BF_109G6LATE BF_109G6LATE Stab_JG51 Hafner
BF_109G6LATE BF_109G6LATE III_JG5_1 Josten
BF_109G6LATE BF_109G6LATE III_JG5_1 Brendel
BF_109G6LATE BF_109G6LATE III_JG5_1 Marquardt
BF_109G6LATE BF_109G6LATE I_JG5_1 Schack
BF_109G6LATE BF_109G6LATE I_JG5_1 Lange
YAK_3 YAK_3 NN Albert
LA_5FN LA_5FN 120IAP Yevstigneyev
YAK_9D YAK_9D 120IAP Koldunov
YAK_9T YAK_9T 5GvIAP Orekhov
YAK_9T YAK_9T 5GvIAP Fedorov
YAK_9D YAK_9D 239IAP Kleshchev

The format appears to be:

Aicraft name Skin folder name Unit designation Ace name
skin:$Custom skin name
