Just remember you'll have to convert them back to .bmp files to work in Il-2.
If you have photoshop just open the skin in ps, then click: image/mode/indexed color. Then file/save as/name your skin/save.
Or I could do it for you if you like, just pm me your email so I can send them once Im done.

Must be why he went pink :oops:
He's in headfirst fast mode there.

Would take lots of time finding a good pic, editing it, getting it on nicely...

... maybe I should put the time and energy into doing myself a skin :hmm:

I wonder if his head could be skinned onto the pilot????

It could but I doubt it'd look decent, maybe use c3po as a better example considering the head shape and all.

As woody said best not to flood the N.Africa thread with skins works, so started this one. These are WIP and by no means to the level Ace or Jaster can pull off but let me know what ya think R2. Basically used Macwan's P-40M RNZAF skin and R33gz R2D2 template+ Gimp.


PM me your email addy Dark Apostle and Ill send through a hires transparent version of the noseart file for you to chuck on there... will colour it up too... no more fluffy edges :D

Jeez Dark. You might as well suggest a "liberace" pilot skin.

I'm stuck with a basic font selection on Gimp. Is there an add on or plugin that would give me more options?

Just add more fonts to your font folder.
Click, start/control panel/Appearance and Themes/fonts, and add what ever font you like.
There are plenty of free fonts available on the net.

Hahaha thank you very much Evil! It's 2:30am here and I was grumpy as hell gettingf ready for work but thanks to you I almost woke the household laughing my arse off _b

In gimp, after you select the text function go into Dialogues, then select "Tool options". Opens a small window with Font/Colour/Opacity options.
