Number one, didn't oleg say before FB came out that backgrounds and such could be modified? How is this done, especailly the background for coop missions.

Number two, how the heck do I make custom pilot skins? I tried it once, but I could never get any to work.

If you're talking about backgrounds for coops as in "the story", why you're flying this mission, what's going on, kinda stuff, then I have a suggestion. Do what I did and load and STUDY the coops that came with the game. I learned how to make two separate info pages depending on which side you choose, and lotsa other stuff. Sorry if that's not what you meant.

No I mean the backgrounds while the coop or any other mission is loading, ya know like there is a shot of a burning Dora by default.

When you stroll through the folders in FB you don't see any picture files like tga, jpg or bmp except for pilot faces and plane skins, I believe. Notice those zip files called SFS files in the FB directory. Lots of things are zip here. Compressed files which are used as the game calls on them. They have to be de-compressed or unzipped. When this is done there are all kinds of files to all kinds of things. Picture files, like the ones your talking about - and everything thing else, are compressed in thoses SFS files. FMs for planes, as well as, damage models and a whole lotta tga or some form of picture files for every imaginable thing in FB. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

ps: might be a good suggestion to suggest in the Oleg forum. Can they set it up so we have an image folder so that people can change the interface pictures.
