I get that effect sometimes on the extreme left hand edge of a map. I can't play in perfect mode either. It's got nothing to do with White Cat's re paint.

I've seen another effect in Excellent mode, probably related with this, it's like circles of squares sorrounding the point of view far away. Also my horizon in less than Perfect mode is really bad. I'm not sure if this happens with the rest of maps, I started to play in Perfect around 3 years ago and I have tweaked heavily the conf.ini and my card settings to favour the Perfect mode but that probably makes other modes worse, I don't know. I'll take a look the weekend :)

Good news pals, I feel like Tom Hanks in 'Apollo XIII' when he says on regaining control after the explosion 'Houston, we've had to learn to fly all over again but now we are doing better up here now' :)

I've had to learn to retexture again, non perfect modes have their own tricks, but I've figured out the problem so will publish patch soon :D ....I know the economy it's not exactly buoyant as to think in buying a new graphics card!

Thanks Mixx, I'm glad you liked what I did with your textures :)

I applied your map_c but it doesn't fix the problem, the problem is not related with the coastline itself but how map_t is textured. Sometimes you get this effect in Excellent if you try to do very detailed coasts. I fixed it changing the map_t.

Thanks again anyway! :D

Hi mate, this is a screenshot showing the fix:



There's still another issue I see in excellent mode, marked in red. It's like concentric circles, it moves when you move, is something related with the way the light reflects in the water, I think. Can you confirm if you see the same effect? If not, can you send me your conf.ini so I compare it with mine? I think mine is optimized to Perfect mode and that's why I see that.

Cheers :)

This is the readme of next release: instead of launching another map I decided to finish this up with some improvements, before you guys finish to play your Iwo campaigns :D (by the way, is there around any good Pre Invasion campaign? There were some missions in the stock installation of Il2 1946 but not very populated...)

Iwo Jima repaint by Whitecat v2.0:

- 6 maps: 3 maps Pre Invasion, Invasion and Post Invasion optimized for Perfect mode, and the same 3 maps optimized for lower modes (Excellent and below). The Perfect mode maps are more loyal to the real geology of Iwo coast, but that provoked some ugly effect in Excellent mode, so the Excellent mode is a little bit less loyal, but now looks quite good. You will have to select different map according to the mode in which you are going to play.

- Apart from that now in the coast you'll notice less low green water and more foam and waves. This is Pacific but it's not Tahiti gentlemen, Iwo is rocky, windy and rainy.

- Different Suribachis for different maps. I figured out how to do it, it was there in front of my eyes :)

- In Iwo invasion you'll be able to bomb the island but you won't be able to land or take off in the airfields without great bumping and risk of crashing your aircraft... the bulldozers can't work under cross fire and the craters are still there :)

Thanks WhiteCat, it's really good of you to take the time out to help mate. Can I ask: are the "excellent mode" versions available seperately?

Yes, they will be. Can you confirm if you now see that effect marked in red? Cheers :)
