Works a treat here EXCEPT!!

I cannot get the il2fb.exe icon to change to the new SAS version? I've tried creating a new shortcut and i've tried thru  'change icon' in properties etc... but it just refuses to change from the old pacific fighters style ??

Any ideas?

XP Pro SP3 

I installed 3.02 full onto a vanilla 4.0101m then installed the 3.04 update.

Reboot your PC.
XP draws the icon from the cache until next reboot if exe name didn't change.

No clue.
I can tell you that the exe itself has only new icons in itself, so wherever the old style icon is from, it's not from within the exe for sure.

The new icon is showing in the IL2 folder but I notice when attempting to 'change icon' in properties it shows the old style one in the folder - the initial window shows the new one?? If I press OK and apply nothing happens?? If I 'create a shortcut' the old one appears?

I'll try again tonight >:(

Very Strange?? Saying that, it will prob be ok when I next boot-up (hopefully - bl**dy computers)

Thanks

I know its a bit premature, but will I be able to install UP3.0 over this?  Or will I need to start from scratch again, 4.101 stock, then UP (or HSFX then the other), and then SAS Modact?

Let's see what will be in the final UP3 RC.
As far as I could see during the tests, UP3 will do fine on top of Modact 3, but it will replace the launcher (aka selector), so for the full version you'd have to backup il2fb.exe first.
Apart from that, no problems from my side so far, albeit I always recommend to start with a vanilla game and install all addons on that one, starting with the biggest one (in this case UP3) and proceeding down to the smallest.

no, you absolutely must install UP3 and SAS3 together in the same place. There are a few SFS files to watch out for not to owerwrite (mostly the FBDSM ones, so if you dont have those, dont worry)

I am pondering a major shift in SAS, based on out close ties with UP, and that fact that this site was, is, and realy should be, offline driven. But More on that at another time.

I understand that, and agree completely with recommending a start with vanilla, but in my case, my entire package is so new (nothing added since my install last week) I was hoping to save a couple of steps.  Oh well, its pretty painless even if I need to re-install everything anyways.
