New Leo1A5 ?

Have noticed in the mods and the textures that there are TWO Leo1A5's.

First one listed as Leo1A5DK.dds , the second listed as Leo1A5DK-1.dds

Is there two different leo1A5's now.

As well in the mission editor when adding new units, the leo1A5dk is listed twice.

Is this a misprint.

Don't know about the skins issue, but my Mission Editor only offers:

Leopard AS1

and

Leopard 1A5-DK

Did you install 2.640 over an earlier copy?

If "yes" then that maybe the cause for the duplication and the one of the reasons for the guidance to uninstall previous versions before installing 2.640.

Yes, uninstall all versions of SB then reinstall the 2.640 upgrade and it will fix the problem.

Duplicate vehicle listings are always a sign that you installed an upgrade over an old version of SB. One of the Leo1A5-DKs is the old one, pre update, and the other is the new and improved one, however the presence of both likely causes terrible conflicts since they both have the same ID.

Well, all I can say is: if you see two Leo 1A5-DKs in the Mission Editor, then you need to uninstall all versions of SB and reinstall 2.460 again.

As for the two different Leo 1A5-DK file types in the mods section, if I had to guess, none of those Leo1A5-DK mods are relevant anymore unless one has been made / uploaded since 2.460 was released a month or so ago. As for the type different file types (dds and bmp) it doesn't really matter, both will load although dds is better (it uses less memory).

The bigger skin file (-1) in your textures folder is for the new and improved Leo 1A5DK model. The other one was for the older model before the 2.640 upgrade.

But wait ...

There's more.

The older skin (the one without the -1) is still used ... It provides the deck and gun barrel from the TC position. :eek2:
