I've been flying the Burma/AVG Campaign with the 1st Pusuit Squadron.The AVG P-40 uses the Typhoon slot so I took one of the P-40's that normally uses the Hurricane slot,wire frame,skins and the associated files and copied them to a folder inside the Typhoon folder in Skins-n-More,I made sure I renamed all the files and registered the texture.When I fly I have the correct exterior 3D wireframe but the skins don't work.I still have the Typhoon cockpit with the P-40 cockpit skin applied to it.Needless to say it looks kinda odd.Any idea what's wrong.Thanks.

PS.
I'm really enjoying the Campaign and by my calculations the Chinese Government owes me 8,000 bucks.

You have to open the Phurr*.3DZ files with a hex-editor, and change the 'pointer' there, from Phurr*.tpc to Ptemp*.tpc - then EAW knows for which slot this 3DZ is for. No more "combo" skins then. If you don't have a hex editor, no problem:

I have P40's in Hurricane,Typhoon,Tempest and P-51B slots, and made this changes already, so I could send you the edited 3DZ-files.
