Default English Cockpit User (Not Mod) Directory?

I prefer to keep all my custom skins in the ...\SAVED GAMES\DCS\LIVERIES folder and NOT modify the DCS game directory for all the obvious reasons.

In particular, I have English Cockpit skins, many of which were designed to work from the DCS game directory via JS/OSGME but actually work fine when put in the ...\SAVED GAMES\DCS\LIVERIES directory instead.

For example, English cockpit skins in all of the following work fine:

C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_Bf-109K-4
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_Ka-50
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_Mi-8MT
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_MiG-29S
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_SA342L
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_SA342M
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_SA342Mistral
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_Su-25
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_Su-25T
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_Su-27
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_Su-33
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Mig-21_CP

However, what is the directory name for the Fw.190-D9 cockpit skins?!?

I've tried (by guessing) the following but none of these work:

C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_Fw-190D9
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_Fw-190-D9
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_Fw-190D-9
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Cockpit_Fw-190
C:\Users\...\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\Fw-190D9_CP

I know that cockpit skins can work from the user directory as it's fine for all the other planes. I just can't get it to work for the Dora. Can anyone tell me what the correct directory name is (and for bonus points, how they found out)?

Tnx!

Should use the same name as in the aircrafts livery folder.

The only thing I can think of is that it might be case sensitive, so try "Cockpit_FW190D9".

Were you able to determine where this mod is to be place for it to work in 2.5? Thanks TC
