We have to point this out? Really?
That you make backup copies of what you've added
before you install anything new?

You do have a backup copy...?

exactly what happened, hello?

was it material you saved in #WAW3, #JTW3 and so on? Or where was it deleted from exactly?

If it was in the #...3 folders, it was not unannounced. It is state of the art and announced since v3.0 that the installers completely delete and reinstall those with each version update. The classfile clean-up cannot be handled any other way without accumulating junk.

BAT has several backgrounds in its sfs-files. This means they override the ones in the missions folder. If you want to have your own, you must put them in your #....3 folder. This is the case for BG, FI, HU, IJA, IJN, IS, DE, NN, GB, RCAF, RN, RU, SK, USAAF, USMC, USN, USSR.

As stated, the deletion and re-installation of these folders was explained on introduction of the exe installers.

Pro Tip for what you attempt to do:
Make your own personal BATMODS mod for all the modules. Activate those through JSGME.
JSGME mods will automatically be deactivated by the exe installer before doing their delete/install thing so your personal Mods will be save and secure all the time. The exe won't touch them in BATMODS.
