HI Oleg,

If any one know the answer to this you do. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Ok here's what i'm trying to do.
The Squadron call letters for the 310th are H34 thru H66.

Now. you can select your aircraft number on the arming screen In dog fight.
Number- 34. Squadron- 1.

If we look at a txt. regiments file from FB.
(i'll use a stock 1 here)

country = US
id = ZZ
gruppeNumber = 1
short = Volunteers
info = The Volunteers WarBirds Squadron

Couldn't the ID code be changed for US to look like this:


country = US
id = H <----------- wouldn't this work?
gruppeNumber = 1
short = Volunteers
info = The Volunteers WarBirds Squadron


Combine this: id = H + selecting aircraft Number 34 on the arming screen & it should read H 34 on the AC & on my player Icon. right?

Or does this have to be done with a mat file?

Here are to examples Of the txt file from the current 310th rgimentals. we use two differant regimentals. one for no country NN & 1 for US. (both are the same image)

US 310th Reg.-

country = US
id = ZZ
gruppeNumber = 1
short = 310th FS 58th FG 5th AF
info = The Tophat Squadron

NN= No Country 310th Reg.-

country = NN
id = ZZ
gruppeNumber = 1
short = 310th FS 58th FG 5th AF
info = The Tophat Squadron

Oh & 1 more question. if that doesn't work could it work like this?

country = US
id = ZZ
gruppeNumber = H <-------By changing the Group Number?
short = 310th FS 58th FG 5th AF
info = The Tophat Squadron

Thanks for any help you can be here Sir. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Have you tested this Copperhead? I'd be interested to know your results.

Thanks btw for bringing this up, it's crossed my mind a few times in the past and since I've been reminded, I think I'll do some testing this evening myself.

i Have Zen & so far no luck. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I'm not sure of what to do here to get this to work short of editing the mat files. Which Aces High 2 is gong to help me with cause i'm lost there. i was jsut hoping Oleg could shed some light on the subject & maybe explain how to do this & how call letters work with regimentals in FB.

With 1.2 RC there are many new squadrons added for the us.
But so far only the B-17 call letter seem to display as they should. the fighter groups/ squadrons call letters dont display at all yet. Only numbers. (keeping in mind that the 1.2 final isnt finnished yet & the team is still working on it)

Aces High seem to think that we could change the 0 on the number to the letter H using mat files. & by adding an extra numerical didgit. we've yet to try this however.

Basicaly i want an "H" in front of the aircraft number.
& our insignia on the coop arming screen & i'm not giving up till we get it. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Keep on persevering Copperhead, where there's a will, there's a way http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Again, I'm interested to know more about how this goes and what you end up being able to figure out, so if you'll keep me posted I'd be sincerely appreciative.

Speaking of Regiments in FB, why in the Finnish Campaigns I can see Finnish Regiment icon on my Brewster, but in QMB I dont see it at all, same goes with alot of other Country Regiments and their planes.
