Some folks seemed to be having trouble figuring out how to make this great tool work, so I posted some screenshots in another thread, and then decided maybe they should be here too since people may come to this thread looking for help, so here they are (these are for the beta 04 version):

All you have to do is browse to your main RoF directory (see illustrations below), and then the tool will automatically pull up all the skins it finds installed under that directory and let you start manipulating them:

etc. till you get to your main RoF directory (…\Rise of Flight), at which point you click "OK" and you get to this screen:

And BTW - if you're not seeing previews for some of the planes, it's probably because your helper list needs to be updated to add the newer plane types that have been released since the tool was created - see the sequence below for tips on how to do that:

Image

Clicking on the little button with "…" on it to the far right of that line brings up this screen (which you can resize to make it easier):

Image

As you will see, this is a list that tells the program for every skin folder, where to find the corresponding preview pictures folder (skin folder names on the left, preview folder names on the right).

Moouse over the buttons on the top and they'll tell you what they are for - clicking on the "Add" button brings you to the bottom of the list, where you can type in the new entries needed (just click "OK" when finished):

Yep I’m an 2009 Rof pre-order buyer and one of the few that did buy the Sikorsky game.

@Dutch2 - It seems i may have got the wrong idea at some posts in the past, not in this thread, probably the cause is due to what you say in your signature - if so, i'm sorry :)

@Panthercules - Thanks for the nice instructions!

Thanks PH, should be a sticky.

It is, indirectly anyway - it is prominently featured in this sticky thread, which was designed to replace and organize the unruly gaggle of sticky threads that had accumulated over time:
