Hi all,

I thought I'd post a work in progress update for the next version of IL2-MAT Manager (v1.93). So far I've incoporated the following new options. There are four new national markings options, Finnish late war roundels, British Type C1a roundels, Type C1a faded roundels and Type C faded roundels. I have added a new feature to the program to enable the display of extra-weathered versions of 11 styles of Red Stars, those produced by Avirex and Nodak. There also a new feature to disable any or all of the national markings for those that prefer to display them on the skin whilst retaining the numbering and/or unit emblems.

I'll post more news in the near future.

Best Regards

Aces

Hi Leigh !
Don't forget the Italian numbering if this isn't too much of a request.

The shear comprehensiveness of this program is astounding, great work as usual Aces, I'm still using an earlier version and STILL haven't used all the options (not for lack of trying!), can't wait to try out all this new stuff.

Hi elephant,

You may be called elephant but my memory's still functioning (just) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. Don't worry m8, I haven't forgotten the Italian numbers, they're next up http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

Cheers Lignite,

I Don't think that I've tried all of the combinations myself, although the beta testers have between them, there are literally thousands of combinations in the program nowdays http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. That's the fun of it, sometimes I find a new one myself !!.

Cheers and regards

Aces

Hi woolfiedog,

Thanks, no I haven't seen that game, I'll check it out. I'm looking forward to Silent Hunter III. The videos that I've seen look excellent and should make for something different from FB.

I hope to have v1.93 ready for release sometime this coming weekend all being well.

Best wishes

Aces

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Silent Hunter 3 looks like it's going to be a Mint game. I also play Silent Hunter 2 and Destroyer Command. Good Games.
Knights of the Sea also being devolped by UBI or Akella is coming along nicely... with a winter release or early next year.
There is also a short video of KOTS on the Forum Page.
I must say the update you have coming up looks Great. I'll be waiting.

Cheers wollfiedog,

both of these look good I might well buy both.

Hi guys,

A quick update:

The last of the new features are in and the beta has been uploaded ready for the testers. All being well I'll be able to release this coming weekend as planned.

Hope you enjoy the new re-sized USAAF emblems option and also the new markings options.

Very tired so off for a rest.

Cheers and regards

Edit : Oh and BTW the Chinese markings as an "axis" option for the QMB is in as well http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Edit : oh and BTW BTW http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I found a new technique for making the edges of the national markings "cleaner" without that damned 1 pixel bleed over to the surrounding colour that's been buggin me for some while so most if not all roundels should look better. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
