View Full Version : Weird Rank Problems in Career

12-13-2004, 12:09 PM
I seem to have no German ranks in my SP Careers now. For some reason my German Ranks are Soviet. I no longer have Unteroffizer and Hauptmann is Kapitan etc. Is there some way I can fix this?

are you using programs like Il2Stab or Il2 Manager? I know that if you use them simultaneously, you get that problem. To avoid it, use only one of the two, if that is the case.

Copy the following ranks into notepad and name the file rank. Put in this directory:

drive:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\Missions\Campaign\DE

0 Oberfeldwebel
1 Leutnant
2 Oberleutnant
3 Hauptmann
4 Major
5 Oberstleutnant
6 Oberst

The complete name of that file is 'rank.properties'.

Have you configured Windows Explorer so that it doesn't show known file extensions? That setting can cause confusion and errors as you never know if the file name you see in Explorer is the complete name.
