Thread: FSX (older delux version) run under Win10 (pro)

  1. #1

    Default FSX (older delux version) run under Win10 (pro)

    I am trying to add on new scenery (EGTK in this case) and loaded the .bgl file into both the Addon Scenery folder in FSX and a separate folder in MyDocs. In both cases I cannot view the bgl file in the FSX add scenery folder. The files do not appear to exists, but they are listed via file explorer. Any ideas?

    Did you add it into Addon Scenery/Scenery? bit confused by the MyDocs comment? And why you reference Windows10?

    Yes added to Addon Scenery. Duplicated addon to MyDocs as a fallback. File explorer sees the bgl file is th e FSX folder, but FSX does not see it, shows an empty folder. Tried it wirh various bgl files, with same effect.

    Addon Scenery/Scenery right? Not just into the Addon Scenery folder. Then the .bgl will load automatically into fsx when you open FSX. Just find EGTK in your airport scenery list and it will be there - voila!

    Thanks for the info. Yes to the Addon Scenery/scenery folder. Regret FSX still does not display the file. Perhaps its is a quirk of my system, Asus ROG A15, 1TB Sdd + 16gb RAM.

    a) check if Addon Scenery is somewhere in the Scenery Library list

    b) if not, add it. Here you'll experience the W7 add scenery bug in FSX (on all systems from W7 on)
    For details: https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showt...lation-Bug-Fix

    c) once step b has been applied, simple adding more BGLs to Addon Scenery\scenery will make them active

    What do you mean by 'FSX still not displaying the file'? Have you selected EGTK when in FSX? Is the scenery showing up? - Is the .bgl in Addon Scenery/SCENERY when you look into the folder? If so then the scenery will be in FSX.

    Is it this one:

    If so I dont think it adds any scenery just new ILS etc? Guys correct me if im wrong?
