November 9th Skin Batch Not Working
« on: November 11, 2023, 12:38:45 PM »
None of the new skins in the November 9th batch appear in game.

Updated skins need to be re-downloaded each time you enter the arena.

I tried removing the skins.res file from the folder. A new skins.res file is not created upon entering an arena.

I had some trouble initially, also, but think I got it resolved somehow.  I had manually downloaded a few skins from the BB links, put them in the skins folder, and they stayed in red text.  SO I renamed the skins.res file, and noted like you, a new res file hadn't been created.  So I renamed it back.  I was able to get it to recognize the new skins, and also download and install skins by clicking on them in the hangar.

Still trying to download P51d_58.res every time I login, even it completes the download.

BTW my skins.res file is dated 10/27/23, which I think is the old file.

I was flying with the new skins last night, but they disappeared and had to re-D/L from the hangar this morning....

Skins are messed up. I canít see any of the skins Iíve downloaded in the drop down box. However, when I launch, the last skin to had selected is what I see from the cockpit. So, even though I canít select a skin from the 100s Iíve downloaded, the last skin I selected is still what is showing when I launch. You have zero options for skins from Tru drop down menu but the skin Iím using isnít the defaultÖif that makes sense.

Having the same issue as LilMak described. To add to that, I'm able to see all the skins in offline, just not in the MA.

Skins are not showing up in the pull down menu in the MA, for anything.  :headscratch:
