View Full Version : What do do about il2 Mat manager and 1946?!

02-03-2007, 06:36 AM
I just cant get it to work! It keeps telling me that I need to specify the il2 folder which I have done correctly.
My 1946 copy didnt come with the il2.exe file only the il2fb.exe file, and as most og you know, both these files have always been there since ver.1.0 of il2 came out in 2001.
Anyway, people advised me to simply make a copy of the il2fb.exe and rename that copy il2.exe and then Mat manager should work. BUT IT STILL tells me to specify where I have my il2.exe file and its there but it seems like its not able to find it!
Guys what is ur advise? I know some other people had this problem, but just making a copy and renaming it il2.exe at east doesnt work on my computer!
And yes I have uninstalled and reinstalled Mat manager TWICE!
thx for advise!

I also can't get it to "see" 1946. Installed a clean copy of 1946, uninstalled mat manager and reinstalled (without the latest upgrades - that is the version I had which worked with il2/fb/aep/pf). I've have no problems installing it, renamed my .exe file properly, and pointed mat manager to this .exe in the setup. The Coop files are there in il2 1946. Don't get any error messages, but when I start 1946, eithe on its own or thru mat manager, only the original 1946 markings are there. I can use il2 stab to get the proper german and finnish insignia, but can'y use the much better mat manager insignia.
