2002/11/20 OK Squadron Forum.
Now we have our own forum. It may not look like an usual forum but it is indeed one. No user profiles, no smiles, none of that fancy stuff, just a simple straightfoward posting script.
There are two main sections: one for portuguese speaking users, other for english, or any other language posting. Everyone can use it. You just sign up and your´re done. Unless your´re cookies are off, next time you enter the forum you´ll be automaticly logged in and ready to post. Give it a try!

2002/11/04 Off-Line Single Player custom markings.
By editing the .MAT files stored in the cache folder after launching iL-2, it´s possible to use different regiment markings, insignias, codes, or almost whatever one might think of.
It all started at this thread, and here, we can find a detailed tutorial on how to achieve this, including a little program to automate the process during the iL-2 start up.
We all know that in the near future "The Forgotten Battles" will bring us the "so awaited" off-line custom skins feature, nevertheless, we can get some very interesting results in single player mode by using this method, as we can see in the above pics showing some aircraft converted to our country markings. Cool!
I´d like to thank all the people involved in the effort for this amazing achivement. S!
