You say that you got double ace first? Weird!   Maybe it's an fs bug.  
You probably had enough kills to get the double ace status, so the game gave you that rank, ignoring the ace status.  

(I'm triple ace   )

How does the ace system work anyway? I had a mission where I was already a double ace and got 33 kills and yet wasn`t given triple. The next mission I killed 12 and got the award. but I had 440 kills which is a fairly strange number for them to use (why not 400?)

Yeah, the B5 mod uninstall wiped a lot of my stuff too, however the important things were salvageable

ugh, that doesn't sound too good. I think it may actually have something to do with the way FS calculates kills for awarding ace medals; if you go straight from under 60 to 150 or higher, it may end up getting confused and doing some strange things. (the Volition people probably never anticipated that missions with 91+ possible kills would exist )

I actually lost all of my custom table files (intended for my campaign) when installing Twilight; I think Kazan's installer overwrote the ones I had in there. Since that time I have always kept two or three backup copies of the missions and mods (tables/effects/etc.) just to be safe...

 
well the p[oblemm wasn`t the MOD's but my pilot of you saw howmany kills and all medals at least 30 times   well and now I own`t make a new one

The number of kills required for the Ace badges are in data/tables/medals.tbl:

  Ace: 60
  Double Ace: 150
  Triple Ace: 350

just extract the tables and change the numbers, simple as 1 kill 2 kills 3 kills!
