All,

I alluded to this earlier that this update would be a long and bumpy journey.  Unfortunately I found out that currently you are not able to create your own plane sets in the new version.  This has to do with how double quotes are used in some fields.

I just fixed it in the code, and will release a hot-fix in not too long.  If you really want to create your sets right now and you are having problems you can fix it by doing some mass text substitution.

Say you are in the UQMG "ini\BAT_WAW\main\RandomSets" folder.  A custom Randomize file you create would be named something like "rnd_set10000.ini" (Custom files are always named from 10000 and higher).

A typical line would look like this:
(F) Curtiss P-40B, 1941,notused,[ru] <USSR>,1

But because I use the text that comes from BAT, I have to deal with commas in comma separated text fields.

To properly work, this field would have to be edited to (note the double quotes):
"(F) Curtiss P-40B, 1941",notused,[ru] <USSR>,1

The best way to do a mass text substitution would be to substitute all occurrences of {,notused,} with {",notused,}, and then add a double quote to as the first character in every line.

Really sorry about this.

No problem to include my missions. :)

And if you want me to translate the briefings in english, no problem also: just tell me how you want to proceed (translate the missions on my side and send it,  simply give you the text, or any way that suits you best).

Had to re-write some routines in UCT2020 to get this done, but now I have a way to convert custom files for other people if they want.  Had some issues at first because in your PC the files are saved with "Vrai/Faux" instead of "True/False", but that was a fun programmatic problem to solve!

Will be releasing them soon.

Hi Uber I wanted to alter the P47 image that appears when you first open UQMM - but I assume its hard coded as you say? Any work around?

I had that - have you installed outside windows program files? It must be C (your drive)\UQMG and not in either of the program files folders (ie x86 etc). That worked for me!

Did you follow the install instructions closely?  Did you run the fb100.exe to install the required configuration files?  Something that seems to help specially in newer Windows 10 machines is to install in a non traditional installation directory.  Something like D:\Games\UberQuickPF.  In fact I highly recommend installing UQMG in a Flash Drive or a Solid State Drive, due to intense file processing that goes on.

Oh, OK, I get it.  No that is hardcoded in the "Splash Screen" form for the Program... I guess I could look into updating that but I have been lazy.
