Dear UQMG Users,

Some of you have been having problems with UQMG because of a particular message:
* "Could not create directories in the IL-2 FB 'Missions' subfolder. Please make sure that the permissions to create directories are set in your PC in that directory. UQMG will now close."

Just to be clear: ONLY INSTALL THIS IF UQMG IS CORRECTLY INSTALLED, INCLUDING THE UNZIPPING OF fb100.exe INITIALIZATION FILES, AND UQMG IS WORKING BUT CANNOT GENERATE MISSIONS BECAUSE OF ISSUE ABOVE. (Using caps only for clear explanation, not shouting... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif )

The problem is entirely my fault. Because I decided to be cute and add the 'U' with an umlat accent, I created a problem for computers that use a particular UNICODE set, such as Hebrew, and most likely Korean, Chinese, Japanese, etc. I have fixed this problem with the International patch. Current users that have UQMG working do NOT need this patch, but if you use it, it will not change your current operation.

You can download the patch immediately from my site:

www.uberdemon.com (http://www.uberdemon.com)

Sorry for the inconvenience, and I deserve a virtual "duh!" on this one.

Big thanks to Ace11 and Somo for being the "International/Beta Experiment Rats" who helped me solve this issue.

Current users that have UQMG working do NOT need this patch, but if you use it, it will not change your current operation.

II. Modifications
==================
* Re-built UQMG executable code
* Removed all references for umlats except for what is needed for current users.
* Added code to handle UNICODE countries
* Directories for UNICODE countries do not include umlats
* Rewrote template staging files used for the IL2 FB menu system to substitute all uppercase umlats with capital letter 'U'.

III. Installation & Operation
===============================
* WARNING: THIS WILL ONLY FIX YOUR PROBLEM IF YOU GET THE MESSAGE STATED IN THE SECTION 'I' ABOVE. THIS MEANS UQMG IS PROPERLY INSTALLED IN YOUR COMPUTER AND YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING WITH IT EXCEPT GENERATE MISSIONS
* Download file to the installation directory of UQMG for IL-2 FB, which is most likely "c:\program files\uberquickfb\"
* UnZip (www.winzip.com (http://www.winzip.com)) file in that directory. If you created any new directories, you did something wrong. The best way to do this is by right-clicking on the zip file and selecting Winzip->Extract Here.
* If you get asked to overwrite a file, say "Yes to All".
* Start UQMG
* The first time you try to create a mission, you will get a more friendly message. UQMG will then close, and the next time you start, you will not have that problem again. The correct directories will be created for you and you should be able to play it in IL2 FB.

thanks for a great "little" (hehe well big i guess) program

just a little programming question if you will

did you actually get into the actual code of FB itself - i mean to put the messages in the single mission screen ( for your convience message)

or is this done through a text file - such as the actual mission "code" is?

thanks /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

* chris455 - Sorry, not today you can't. I have been asked to add that to UQMG, but I am trying to have at least all maps enabled in single-player before I tackle the code again... which means I am a liar because I had to do some changes to enable the extended character set handling... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif I'll keep in mind OK?

* IDF_Raam - Good that now things are working.

* VMF-214_Tsar78 - Thanks... you're the bump maister.

* fluke39 - Everything is my code/template/script. I do no hack/slice work on my utilities for IL2/FB.
