Amigos is there a way to make the water nice and sexy like it is in the "normal" BAT 4.2.2 version (without the GE)?
THe landscape and textures look great with the graphics extender, but the water looks worse.

Its basically the same no matter if i set Water=0 =1 =2 or whatever...
Any tweak i may have missed?

I can't run GE with 4.15.1.

In short I'm using SAS selector 5.1.2 game type set to "4.15 or later"
with "EnableGE=on" game crashes, but with "EnableGE=off" it works.

All logs and setting in zip-file:

Oh yes, indeed.
Funny TD guys... with 4.15.1 a couple of exports from il2fb.exe vanished once more.
I'm afraid running behind TD's constant attempts of breaking mods doesn't make much sense anymore.

This is a constant since 4.10 and i really never understood their attitude as with a minimal cooperation on their side we could a better and more lively IL-2 what a waste i really wonder if this is not on pourpose to direct people towards IL-2GB or COD

Well, I tryed with 4.15 (not 4.15.1) and it still not running. But in GE 0.3.0 changelog stated that it should work with this game version.

New logs from 4.15 (fresh install from 4.12.4 up to 4.15, NOT DOWNGRADE).

Hmmm - same error as 4.15.1:  SFS_close is not exported by il2fb.exe.

Indeed.
SFS.cpp asserts that "SFS_close", "SFS_read" and "SFS_lseek" exists - which they did in pre-4.15 il2fb.exe.
However, none of these exist in 4.15 anymore.
We have mangled SFS methods in DT.dll instead:
"SFS_open@8", "SFS_openf@12" and "_SFS_Mount@12".
No close, no read and no lseek being exported anywhere whatsoever.
Consequently, the whole "com.maddox.rts.cppRTS" class is missing in 4.15 - completely removed, in order to intentionally break existing mods.

Now I'm confused - I thought 4.15 changed the calling convention, not remove the exports alltogether?

I can't remember how we got to the point of recognizing the changed calling convention to be honest, and with it I don't remember whether we actually ran IL2GE against 4.15 at all... it's been a while.
But looking at the binaries of 4.15, it becomes clear that TD deliberately broke a relevant part of code which was used by modders - again.
