A few questions regarding TDS 787s......

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I download the United 787-8, -9, and the American 787-8.

 

I do the installs, I add the free "Boeing Callouts" radar altimeter callouts, and the Turbine Sound Studios GE or RR sounds for the 787.

 

So I paste the files where they go. I know how to do this. Been siming for several years, this is a no brainer and easy. However.....

 

They don't load in the sim. I'm trying to scratch that itch until QualityWings releases their 787, but the TDS developers have made the install of their planes such a pain in the @$$.

 

Can anyone give me some pointers on successful installs with the TDS 787-8, -9?? I'd really appreciate it.

The install is actually really easy, its just that people dont pay attention to it very well and/or don't grasp it.

 

 

There is an FSX version and there is an FS9 version of the aircraft models. FSX sometimes wont see FS9 models so they either dont show up or are invisible. So make sure you have the right model. TDS models for FSX have an X in the name.

 

As said, make sure the CFG file has the correct ordering and numbering for your two 787 liveries.

 

Visit TDS 787 support on facebook and download the manual.

 

And lastly make sure your actually looking in the right section of the aircraft selection page. TDS planes are NOT in the boeing section, and are NOT listed as boeing manufactured.

The biggest reason the TDS aircraft won't show in your Sim is either the Title= line is too long and needs to be shortened or the texture=points to a wrong or misspelled texture folder.

 

For further help, please give the exact file name of your download. There's quite a few TDS 787-8 United Airlines.

Still thinking about a new flightsim only computer!  ✈️
