Default **New Program**Mat Manager v2.36 All in one Installer here**

I am proud to present the IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 Mat Manager Self-Install program. It will install Mat Manager for you v2.36 of course. This basically installs all you need to run Mat Manager v2.36 on your pc. After it installs in will also install the Mat Manager program files and put a shortcut on your desktop too.

The download link:

http://files.filefront.com/Mat+Manag.../fileinfo.html


I made this because like some of you, i had trouble installing Mat Manager and i decided to do something about it.


The program will install directly to the Ubisoft/IL-2 1946 folder on your harddrive, so you don't need to install all those patches. Now it comes in one easy installer less than 40mb in size.


Procedure after you install the program:

1) Copy your 1946 game's "il2fb.exe" and rename the copy to "il2.exe." (You should now have both versions in your game's main folder. Don't simply rename il2fb.exe or else Hyperlobby and other utilities won't work.)

2) Edit the [Game] section of your game's conf.ini file so that clearcache=0.

3) Go to your PaintSchemes folder and make sure that Cache and NetCache are not 'Read Only.'

4) Customize some MATs and save your changes. Click on the Load tab at the top left corner. Exit IL2-MAT Manager and let the files transfer. Start 1946 and see if the changes appear in the game. For testing purposes, changing the default Japanese insignia to any custom MAT will give very obvious results.

If you have any issues please post them here since this version is only a beta and further testing might be needed.


You can all thank Aces_High_2 for this great program/utility. All i did is made it easier to install.

That's really great - thanks, Rudel and Aces High 2!
I've been using MAT Manager for awhile now, and it has always been a bit tricky to install, but if you only ever have one app/utility for IL2, this is the one! It adds greatly to the look of the game, and is a must-have for anyone even vaguely serious about this sim.
Lovely stuff!

Changes all MATs in the game....... MATs are those little graphical files;
- crosses, swastikas, red stars, stars 'n bars
- numbers on aircraft
- unit insignias on aircraft fuselage/tails etc,

Nice util

Run-time error '339':

Component 'mscomctl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid.

MAT Manager self install version was uploaded to M4T yesterday, so I thought I would let Aces know about the new interest generated in IL-2 MAT.

I'm delighted that JG51_Rudel has made the installer, he has done an excellent job, congratulations to him and all involved and I believe that this has greatly improved the install procedure and will help folks enjoy using the program.

I've not been around much and due to some serious RL issues over the last couple of years I've not really had much time to spend with my hobbies. What free time I've had had been spent over the course of the last year working on a mamoth movie project which I'm hoping to complete sometime in the new year. If anyone's interested I put together a small sampler trailer some while back but have added much new material since then.

I'd be much obliged if you would post the above message on M4T and any other forums that have news of the installer and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all concerned in the production of the installer and hosting the file download and IL-2 MAT Manager users for sticking with the program over all these years.

Sincere best wishes

Leigh (Aces)

I had the same question but found this image on Mission4Today.

Also, does it enable the Swastikas? I downloaded 'Swastika Enabling Program for 1946 ONLY', but got an error saying it wanted me to insert the correct CD, but I had the 1946 CD(DVD?) in the drive. And it didn't seem to enable swastikas!
