Re: Random TB_New_Skies_Textures 17-July v0.4 (CUP Ready!)
« Reply #12 on: July 17, 2015, 10:50:05 AM »

The VKG Grand Canyon map in CUP uses the same tga the other maps use. It works fine.

For custom added maps in non-CUP installs the problem is that the "Default skies.bat" removes the sky files and lets the game use the internal stored textures (default skies). If I remove the Clouds267.tga this map will not longer load (Clouds267.tga completely missing). I prefer to play safe.

I believe the best approach in these cases is you to manually edit the VKG Grand Canyon (as well as any other custom map) load.ini and replace "HighClouds  = Clouds267.tga" with "HighClouds  = Clouds256.tga"

Or edit yourself the batch files as I am sure you already did!  ;)

Cheers Korrigan!

You're right Whistler, your approach is definitly safer and more "elegant" than mine  ;)

Right now I cannot run and play Il-2. But when i get back I will install all the mods I've been downloading since.

One question about the random skies mod - it's said that it changes clouds textures on all stock maps. Now, what about non stock maps? I ask because in all honesty, the stock maps are so old and bland that I never use them. Can you add new maps to any list so that they too can profit from the randomness?

Hey agracier, see reply #12 above  ;)

Change "HighClouds  = XXX.tga" to "HighClouds  = Clouds256.tga" in the custom-added map load.ini

The Mod does what is advertised and it is100% safe. I wrote every line of the launcher and batch files and I guarantee it.

Let me contact MF support  :\'(

Some antivirus programs don't like .exe files.
I think you need to change settings of your AV program before starting the download.

It's not really your fault whistler, but when I looked at the exe's internals, I noticed that there were a couple of imports from wininet.dll for connecting to remote sites.
This made me wonder... why would you want to do that?
Turns out you don't.
You just used AutoIt! for compiling a batch script to an exe.
Now once again, this is not your fault, but you should know that isn't deemed "safe" by many antivirus programs, and I'd like to add "for good reasons", e.g. as you see it adds unwanted online code.
See the result yourself, this is what antivirus programs think about your AutoIt! generated exe:

And all of this only for this script which indeed is safe in itself:

GUISetOnEvent($gui_event_close, "FunctionCloseButton")

I was at first able to download the mod with starter, but then a few hours later when i saw the messge saying it was not downloadable, I too tried again and could indeed not download anymore.

I guess mediafire must have analyzed the file in the meantime.

Thanks Storebror for stepping in. I added a disclaimer to the top of the first post:

Disclaimer: Download this Mod only from the links provided in this location. The launcher has been completely written by me using well known tools downloaded from official sources. These softwares have been used by hackers to spread viruses, and applications built with them have sometimes been reported as positive by antivirus definitions.

I can only guarantee this launcher has been developed and shared with the best intentions and I would never include any code that does not serve the purpose advertised. Storebror has proven on reply #21 that what I initially shared was not intentionally harmful in any way. You can take my word for it or go somewhere else.
