Hoping someone here can help me. I recently downloaded a 10+ year old game. (B-17 Flying Fortress: The Mighty 8th) I found out that an OMF editor is available for changing the skins on planes. I followed the somewhat vague instructions on a YouTube vid:
Evertying worked fine... sort of. I forgot one major step, and didn't back up the games original OMF files. Well... I messed it up, so I uninstalled game and re-downloaded it.
Learning from my earlier mistakes, I downloaded the OMF editor again and backed up my files. Then just to check that the editor woked I tried to open one of the games original OMF files........ Nope.
I can go to any of the OMF files, selecting it prompts the "Open With" window. The OMF editor isn't listed... go to "Choose Default Program". Find the editor (C-drive:> GOG > B17 FlyingFortress >OMFMod), double click it. The "Choose Default Program window closes.... but the OMF editor STILL isn't listed in "Open With". I've tried re-downloading the editor multiple times... Unzipping it directly to the game's "core" file.... Unzipping it to its own file then moving/dragging it to game's core file... nothing is working. I cannot find a way to use it to open a file.
I can open the OMF editor without issue, and it seems to be functioning fine. But I can't figure out how use it to open OMF files.... original or downloaded.
Its not a major issue, but i really want to know what I;m doing wrong, as i had it working fine until human error (mine) messed everything up.
Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
