Opening movie can be turned off by default if you want by using the Setup file. I think we'll be needing your DXDIAG files as well (see the Support forum - this is General discussion) and maybe a screen shot if you can do that as well as a description of when it happens and when it doesn't.

Sounds interesting...
very interesting...
I reinstalled FB yesterday (formatted my HD)
and the wheels on some planes were GREEN!
It seems fixed now, don't know what I did.

Try with Tech support, that's the only tip
I can give you. Good luck.

Are only the Allied planes pink?

Have you been playing in a full-real server?

I had a similar problem. It was fixed when I didn't apply the custom nose-art/regiments.

Somehow, I bugged up my personal nose-art and that caused the pink plane.

I had this once, along with some other bright colors showing up as splotches on the ground. I took out vid card and washed it thoughly with electical cleaner. Solve the problem, It wasn't real dirty to the eye either, My case has filters but there must of been something on it.

This is a DRIVER issue...no doubt about it. Re-install/update your driver...and no more "pink panthers".

Side note.

The Brits did paint some of their a/c pink, though not bright pink.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Who will skin a Spit in Mountbatten pink?

Some RN ships also were painted as well.

This sounds totally ridiculous to me. Pink aircraft - ha, no way.

Happened to me once.. One of my squad m8's planes turned pink while all the others were normal. I was recording an ntrk at the time on a pretty big map.. I was strange. When I played back the track, his plane looked normal though.. :S

Thanks to all who have replied,& yes I really do have all pink aircraft!!.
It seems that the best advice is the driver one ,I have tried an uninstall.no luck.
removed all of the update patchs ,no luck. My driver version is 6.14.10.6404,for my ATI 9600XT.I think this is the latest diver??.
FYI the cockpits are OK its just the exteriors ,they also show up Bright Pink in the misson select area.
Thanks all Steve.
