Thread: DC-9 Laser - Installing and Extracting Zip File

  1. Default DC-9 Laser - Installing and Extracting Zip File

    Dear SGA Forum,

    I downloaded the DC-9 SGA Laser aircraft and read the read-me instructions. Can you please provide me instructions where to extract the zip file. Should I extract into my main FSX root directory, C:\FSX or extract into the C:\FSX\SimObjects folder? Is this DC-9 aircraft compatible with FSX? It was listed as a FSX compatible aircraft.

    I extracted into my main FSX root directory C:\FSX and the aircraft id not appear in my FSX aircraft menu selection.

    Thank You,

    paulwayne

    The aircraft folder goes into FSX/SimObjects/Airplanes folder and works fine!

    I would:
    -1- create a new folder on my desktop.
    -2- put the .zip file in it,
    -3- extract it there,
    -4- look in the extracted folder to see the contents,
    -5- locate in it the folder that contains the aircraft,
    -6- copy the folder that is the aircraft to my:
    ..\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Simobjects\Airplanes
    folder.


    UPDATE:
    Strangely, in this download the folder that IS the aircraft is also called...aircraft!!

    I would rename that folder from "Aircraft" to:
    SGA_DC9_Laser

    then place that folder in the:
    ..\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Simobjects\Airplanes
    folder.


    UPDATE-2
    Sorry if I just said something very daft. I don't know SGA at all. This is my first post in this subforum.
    I assume SGA is another sim altogether??
    In case that is so. My suggestion of renaming applies to installing in fsx. Not to SGA.

    From Mr. Zippy's picture posted above, I will GUESS it's FSX. I would use your suggestion, top to bottom. It's how I install new things. That way you can see if there are effects, gauges, or whatever, to put in their proper FSX folders. I do that especially with auto-installrs. I don't trust those things at all! Always point them at a temp folder and then install whatever myself.
    Does that help out at all?

    Had a thought...then there was the smell of something burning, and sparks, and then a big fire, and then the lights went out! I guess I better not do that again!

    Thanks,
    I get the impression now that SGA is a group that created many aircraft for FSX and FS9.
    But just in case, will leave the little warning about renaming in.
    Nice to see you Pat, as always,
    Have a great day,
