    Hurricane skins - space in folder name

    I noticed skins in certain models of Hurricane I were not available. The PaintScheme folders for these models had spaces. I removed the spaces and the skins were available.

    Folders renamed:
    HurricaneMkI_100octNF
    HurricaneMkI_NF
    HurricaneMkI_100oct

    These folders exist in the Steam installation directory and in the user's Documents directory.

    Really?
    I had no idea. It is strange that I didn't stumble across this myself during the testing of skins. It just shows how important feedback from users is.
    We will look into this and correct the problem.
    Many thanks for your input!
    Cheers

    ... on second thoughts, it has probably been mentioned before.
    ... an oversight.

    There is something odd going on here.

    Can people please check. This is what I have on my install:

    I have these both with and without a gap in the folder name:
    HurricaneMkI_100octNF
    HurricaneMkI_100oct

    But I only have this skin folder with a gap in the name:
    HurricaneMkI_NF (this is what I have: Hurricane MkI_NF)

    We will need to delete the ones with gaps in the name from the game AFTER moving the skins to the correctly named folders. It was an oversight not to remove them before.
    It is strange though that we have missed renaming the last one I mentioned: HurricaneMkI_NF.

    If you correctly rename the skin folders in \Documents\...\PaintSchemes\Skins, a copy of the folder with the wrong folder name will reappear when you next run the game because it is 'missing' and gets reloaded.

    Currently I have these Hurricane folders:

    Hurricane MkI_100oct
    Hurricane MkI_100octNF
    Hurricane MkI_NF
    HurricaneMkI
    HurricaneMkI_100oct
    HurricaneMkI_100octNF
    HurricaneMkI_dH5-20
    HurricaneMkI_dH5-20_100oct
    HurricaneMkI_FB
    HurricaneMkI_NF

    Fractal Design Define R5, Corsair AX 760W, Corsair Hydro H110, Asus X99-DELUXE, Intel Core i7-5820K, Corsair Vengeance 16GB, MSI GeForce GTX 970, Samsung 850 EVO 250GB, Western Digital Black 2TB, Win 10 Home 64-bit, VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle, VKB Gladiator Pro, MFG Crosswind, Wheel Stand Pro, Track-IR 5, Logitech G933, Eizo ColorEdge CS240

    Re: Hurricane skins - space in folder name

    I did not have gapless versions of these folders until I renamed them in both \Steam... and \Documents...
    Hurricane MkI_100oct
    Hurricane MkI_100octNF
    Hurricane MkI_NF

    Perhaps major_setback and Bonditaria, you had gapless when you locally corrected these in the past? Does the creation date of the various folders offer you a hint?

    Re: Hurricane skins - space in folder name

    I think I found out what happened.
    We overlooked deleting the incorrect Hurricane skin folders.

    When I submitted the corrected Hurricane folders I missed out the HurricaneMkI_NF.

    But I need something checked to see if I am correct:

    Can anyone please tell me if you have a skin folder for the tropical version of the Br20? This should have been submitted along with the Hurricane folders. If anyone doesn't have it (tobruk_BR-20M-Trop) then
    I can resubmit all the Hurri and Br20 folders again. (I'll probably do so anyway, as it seems some people might be missing some folders).

    Please only look in the Steam folder
    Steam/steamapps/common/ IL-2 Sturmovk Cliffs of Dover Blitz /paintSchemes / skins

    Cheers

    Major_setback, I do not have tobruk_BR-20M-Trop in my Steam skins. Thanks for looking into this.
