Post a link to one of the liveries that cause trouble and we'll take a look whether it works fine in current game version or not.

I used your suggestion of this site...


https://forums.eagle.ru/forumdisplay.php?f=361


And used the liveries by Reflected...for instance the RAF Johnnie Johnson.

No they won't - they're custom folders the updater has no idea about, so it cannot even touch them. Unless someone specifically runs a game cleanup command.

Anyway, back to Hornetjock, I took a look at the Reflected's skin you mention. It is a bit unusual, not having any specific "countries" defined in it at all, but looks like it it can be used with any of them.
I don't know how your folder structure is set up in JSGME, but I can confirm that the skin will become selectable when files end up extracted to either

c:\Users\[your user name]\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\SpitfireLFMkIX\RAF Johnnie Johnson EN398 by Reflected\

or

[your DCS installation path]\DCS World\Bazar\Liveries\SpitfireLFMkIX\RAF Johnnie Johnson EN398 by Reflected\

The path would be :



B\DCS World\Bazar\Liveries\SpitfireLFMkIX\RAF Johnnie Johnson EN398 by Reflected\



I notice that for me the SpitfireLFMKIX does not have a folder in Liveries...It goes from Soldier Stinger to Stinger Comm. Is that how it should be? Should I just create a folder "SptifireLFMKIX"?

Indeed, some planes don't have their own folders in "liveries" location and they have to be created manually, that's the case with our Spit as well. Generally correct spelling of the airplane name is critical, as you can see here it's "SpitfireLFMKIX" without any spaces, dashes and such.

Just to be sure - the "RAF Johnnie Johnson EN398 by Reflected" folder must contain only these few loose files with .dds and .lua extension.

Glad to hear some of my skins made it into this collection
I never specify any countries in my desciption.lua-s, so that the skin could be used regardless the country. It shouldn't give you any trouble. If the skin still doesn't show up that must have something to do with the location where it's saved.
