Well, it's a mix of geekery and historical fanaticism...

I happen to be a nerd who loves WW2 aviation...  I don't have any particular talents, just passion.  My wife still reminds me everyday that "The allies won the war...  go take the trash out, and go fix that tile..." :D

Greetings,

The next hot-fix/upgrade will include a new Splash-Screen which has random historical images which were selected and edited by PO_MAK_249RIP.  A Huge thanks to him.

He came up with 22 varied images which will be randomly selected when UQMG starts, although at times you will get the original splash from UQMG Classic.  Below are some samples from different UQMG starts:

















It is not a new feature per se, but adds a nice touch.

Below is the readme that will be included in the "\ini\0_common\Background" folder:

UQMG for BAT WAW Pictures
=========================
04 Nov 2020

CREDIT:  PO_MAK_249RIP

NOTE01:  All pictures were chosen and edited by SAS 1946 (www.sas1946.com) member PO_MAK_249RIP.  All pictures were obtained as a matter of public domain in the Internet for historical purposes, and no profit will be made from these pictures.  They are used giving all respect to the original content of the pictures and are meant to show appreciation for aviators and their support crews during world conflict regardless of nationality.  Where possible the pictures are meant to depict the people, rather than the machine, in appreciation for military service everywhere.

NOTE02:  File "Max.ini" contains the maximum number of pictures to be randomized during load up.  Do not erase that file.

ANNOUNCEMENT:  09 Nov 2020 - Hot Fix 002 Coming Out Soon

Greetings,

I have been hard at work at the old UQMG interface to make some changes.  Mainly these will be the features:
•   Updated Engine Version 6.2.0
•   Some updated GUI wording to reflect IL-1 1946 and BAT
•   Direct links to SAS 1946 Home page and BAT Missions page (where updates to UQMG are posted) in the Help menu
•   UQMM (Mission Manager) now fully supports BAT
•   100% Support for DF Hybrid Arenas within UQMG GUI
------o   FMB no longer needed to modify UQMG mission
------o   Support DF Arenas which allows support for dynamic/moving AI ground and scripted AI planes (As in Single Player and Coop Mode)
------o   This allows, through the use of wave features available to flight clones for the creation of long lasting persistent arenas which can be played with your friends online or by yourself (Creating a DF session).
------o   You can hop into new planes for each team endlessly while there is a war with fully operational aircraft flying and engaging each other as well as ground objects
•   Mission Generation time cut by 2/3 of time for SP/Coop/DF (When checking the Hybrid DF Arena option)
•   BONUS Feature:  Upon start, splash screen will now display random images edited by PO_MAK_249RIP

Below are some screens from the upcoming Hot Fix:

Greetings mates!

The next update of UQMG for BAT (Update 003) will include the ability to check for new updates.  Also, whenever UQMG starts, it will check for updates.  If there is an update available, it will take you to the page here at SAS 1946 where I have the news and instructions on how to get the latest updates.

Look below:

When checking manually:


If there is an update:


If you have the current version:


And I just got a few more pics from PO_MAK_249RIP.  Next update will include a few more pictures during loading Splash screen.  Some will be in colour and some will include post WW2 pictures (in anticipation of an eventual UQMG module supporting JTW).

You will also be able to start IL-2 1946 / SAS BAT from UQMG itself (or switch focus to IL-2 if it is running).

Once again I would like to give a huge thanks to PO_MAK_249RIP for taking time to assemble and edit 100 images for the UQMG Splash screen (B&W and Colour, covering WW1 to now).  The feature is now complete in UQMG and in the next update you will be able to either have the random screens every time you start, or you can specify your favorite one.  Of course you can change that any time.

I hope you enjoy this new feature in the next update.

Some screen shots below:
