Hi all,

I've had a hugely productive weekend working on the next version of IL2-MAT Manager. For starters I've produced seven new sets of stencilled Luftwaffe numbers and coded in the options to select them. I have also added a new option to all of the National Markings selection options to display a user-defined graphic of your choice. Lastly I've added a new option to enable/disable the re-positioning of RAF lettering. The new re-positioned lettering works very well on all models of RAF Spitfire and Hurricane but not so well on other aircraft that share their MAT files such as the P-40 and Gladiator. It's impossible to prevent them from sharing the MAT files so you will soon have the option to display them re-positioned or default positioning according to your preferences. This option will work with randomised and non-randomised lettering and all the current RAF font options. Below are some screenshots of the user interface additions and the new stencilled numbering options.
