Thread: I Think I'm Ready to Scream

    Default I Think I'm Ready to Scream

    I was just thinking today how far we've come. When I first started using MSFS, I could fit several aircraft onto a 3.5" floppy disk. Today I downloaded a 33MB aircraft, and it went instantly.

    Then I tried to put that aircraft into the program. And I tried. And I tried. I cannot tell you how much time I spent tinkering with it, trying to get the thing to show up in the list, and it still isn't there!

    Can someone tell me if there's an issue with the CFG info pasted below? I can't imagine there is.

    It works fine, Andy! Did you transfer all of the files from the FSX folder in the download to the aircraft folder overwriting the FS2004 stuff?

    Don't know if this will help, but I had a similar problem with an A2A C 182 Repaint. The line texture = line was the culprit. The texture folder was titled N*****_Used, the texture = line read texture=N*****
    So I renamed the texture folder to the same as the texture= line and all was well. Apparently, if the texture folder name doesn't match what the texture= line reads, it won't recognize the aircraft and allow it to display. Hope this helped.

    That's a Good Question, There is a Folder titled [FSX Version] within the Original Folder [Project Airbus A380-842]

    I Simply Copy pasted the Contents from the folder [FSX Version] into the Project Airbus A380-842] overwriting some fs9 files and it worked fine (Picture Below).

    My [fltsim.0] Entry within the Aircraft.cfg matches the information you posted above so I don't think the entry is causing the Issue.

    It is probably the panel=. FSX doesn't like FS9 panels. Make sure you use the one alias to the B747_400 panel.
