Online Documentation for version 2.20


A post Easter - Easter Egg.


As some of you know from time to time I like to sneak in an un-documented feature or set of markings well I have done so in version 2.20. So if your not already full of Easter Eggs then here's another one for you, happy hunting http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

Aces' Artwork and IL2-MAT Manager sponsored by Naturalpoint.


I am also delighted to announce that as from version 2.20 of the program IL2-MAT Manager is now sponsored by Naturalpoint Inc., the producers of the TrackIR range of head-tracking gaming devices. Grat and I wish to express our thanks to Jason €œBurnin€ Williams, Marketing Director, NaturalPoint, Inc. and his colleagues for their interest and support in further development of IL2-MAT Manager and we are both much looking forward to working with Naturalpoint Inc. who we believe to be a company with an excellent reputation for producing innovative and high quality products which greatly enhance enjoyment of the gaming experience.

I hope that you enjoy using the new program. I'll be taking a short break to re-charge my batteries before starting work on the next version, I'll be back http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. There's lots of new markings options and added functionality in the new version to have a play with. I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Grat and the beta testers who, as usual have really helped with the development and testing of the new version. I hope that there aren't many bugs in there but I've been really very tired throughout producing the new version and my recent dose of flu didn't help matters much.


Best Regards

I did and thanks. But I seem to have sent you the wrong one http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

oh, okay mate,

send over the right one and I'll have a look.

Cheers Leigh, looks fantastic mate!!

First off, let me thank you for all your excellent work!

I do have one question though. I'm currently running v2.11, and when I try to upgrade to v2.20 using the upgrade file I'm asked to uninstall v2.10 or v2.11 before installing v2.20. I'm not really supposed to do this, am I? I would understand this if I was using the full install file to get to v2.20, but with the upgrade...?

I hope you can clarify this for me, I'd hate to mess anything up (I usually do when it comes to installing/uninstalling stuff...).

Hi all,

I'm sorry, maybe I should have made this clearer. When running the UPGRADE from v2.10/v2.11 installer to v2.20 you must, as allways, un-install your previous (v2.10/v2.11) version first. Then run the new installer and it will add extra MAT and TGA files and auto-run the v2.20 program installer.

Please note never delete ANY MAT or TGA files only use Windows add/remove program to un-install the MAT Manager program before running the new version installer.

Best regards
