I'm not very good at that sort of thing, Cyberolas. Must be a generation thing (I'm fifty years old, although that doesn't excuse my ignorance), or I'm just underdeveloped in that respect. Can you please tell me how?

Its easy - do you fly with 4.12? or 4.12.2? You have folder My_screenshots (or similar name?) in root of il-2. So you have to map some key for screenshots-making and push this key if you fly. So and if you open this folder, screen is there.
 After that you choose some site with imagehosting and upload there it. Link you have to write here. Thats all.

As for screenshots, you can also upload them to a photo storing and editing provider like e.g. photobucket or postimage, it is free..simply need to create an account.

Then the screenshots, which are in newer versions under "IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\MyScreenShots" and in older versions right in the game folder, can be uploaded as jpegs...

In photobucket, once chosen and uploaded (need to choose the folder where they are and then select them), you can view them in the library and then with their IMG codes copy them and paste them here e.g.

Not sure if postimage is only German  :-\...but it works the same.

There are many of such providers, principle is always the same:

Chose your screenshot, it helps if you have a photo software like the free "IrfanView" installed.

Then copy and paste the shots e.g to your desktop and upload them-if they are in tga format, open them, click "save as" and select a JPEG format, then save. Makes upload speedier.

If you then get the image codes you can copy and paste these to a forum.

Hope that was not too complicated, it is easy once done a single time. ;)

Sorry my question, but where do I put the folders Ardennes.BumpH and  Winter BumpHs?
would be in this directory: #SAS/MAPMODS/MAPS/_Tex/East/Ardennes  ?
is the correct directory?  :-\

Thank you!

Look -il-2 engine search BumpH files in the same directory like original textures, so:
Ardennes BumpH to Ardennes
Ardennes winter BumpH to Ardennes winter
Kursk BumpH to Kursk directory and so one and so one :)

I want to show you differences depend on date of mission in .mis file.
Look - first image is mission with wrong date - 15th July. Cloudtype=3


screenshot windows 7

second image is mission with good date - 15th November. Cloudtype=3


image hosting

Good months for winter are - October, November, December and January. Surprisingly February isn´t good month for winter BumpH textures. Thats all.
