Lets see.. #4 was on Final Jeapordy last night.... Do I have to pose my answer in the form of a question? :) Actualy, its my fault. The button for those on my stick was a little sticky. :) They work. Sorry.
Would you like me to send you the skins?

It was General Ludendorff, IIRC.
Damn it man, the amount of havoc that button could have caused! :D Glad it's working now.

I've tested this aircraft and it flies perfectly, but I can't manage to get the .50 cal guns and the reticle doesn't appear in the cockpit. I've installed it over the original PBY from Ranwers and I'm running DBW 1.71. Any ideas?

It's probably conflicting files - try deleting 3do\Plane\PBY and 3do\Cockpit\PBN1 folders. If that doesn't work, try a fresh install.

If I delete the folders, I have the original PBY (the one with PBN"s model). And if I re-install the update after deleting the folders, I have the correct model but still the same problem: no cannons and no gunsight.

Have you deleted everything, i'e. the entire PBY/PBN mod, and then installed the update as a stand-alone? I did that last night to test it and it worked perfectly. Also, have you downloaded the correct files? The hierarchy should be:
#SAS\PBY5V1.01\3do\Plane\PBY5 for the plane and:
#SAS\PBY5V1.01\3do\Cockpit\PBY5 for the cockpit
If those two aren't marked PBY-5, you've got the wrong model and/or classfiles.

Problem solved: I replaced the folders and classfiles manually, and I have the correct weapons selections (with working cannons) and I have the gunsight. Thanks for your help!  8)

Your version with guns is nice ! :)

If you create a mesh (Guns0_D0.msh) from a copy of the mesh Guns1_D0 and you remove the guns ... you adjust the problem of mapping of the aircraft nose!  ;)
Your mesh is in text mode, so I can not import them into 3dsmax !  :-X

CoD: world at war. There's a mission where you control the turrets on a Catalina, strafing Japanese merchant vessels and torpedo boats.




I'm happy i'm at the point I can use one of my mods to shoot down my other mods.

TBH I think there's merit now in a "Black Cat" campaign; might have to look into that.

Let me see if I understand correctly about this new mod. I must delete the PBN and
only use this new PBY, correct?
But I LIKE my PBN !  :(
CanĀ“t I have 2 Catalina versions?
Two is always better than one.
Decisions.... decisions...

BTW , Matt,
I am looking for those pdf books you asked for the other day.
I got about 9 Terabyte discs full of goodies , problem is, I will have to show you
screenshots of the book covers for you to select which ones you need. I have about
30+ books on that subject, but can only upload for you a few at a time. Its just
too many books. Big Brother is always watching  ;)

No Max. Just install this into your mods folder. First look and see if you have the " PBY " in the air.ini. If so just place the folder in your mods folder. I have both the original PBN and this one working.

Thanks Bombsway!  8) Now I can continue enjoying those many cool skins I
still have for the PBN and paint a few more for the new PBY.

BTW - Check you PM right now Bombsaway, I am sending you a special Gift  ;)
