    Default Missing Aircraft Texture Files

    Hi all,

    I've had this problem on a few occasions but never found a solution. Just installed some Aircraft but when I checked, ACA_2017 flagged up some texture errors. In addition, the aircraft concerned show up in black only.

    On checking I find that the texture folders in each case contain only one file.

    In this case they're AI Aardvark aircraft. I can't remember if this has always been the case when I've had problems in the past.

    What to do? Any ideas?

    Many thanks.

    Allan

    If you open that "one file" what dies it say?

    OK, those should be the textures for that aircraft. I did look at an AI Aardvark aircraft repaint in the file Library. It looked like this: Do you see anything similar?

    Mr Zippy. I think I may have the solution but will take me a while to check it out. Probably come back to you tomorrow, now.

    Sorry, should have updated this but been very busy.

    Solved the problem. I had 26 textures installed and although I had texture=ABCD in my aircraft.cfg file I hadn't put "texture." in front ot each texture. So I had ABCD instead of texture.ABCD.

    Thanks again.

    Easy mistake, I've done similar.

    One of the common mistakes is typing error, like texture.abcd instead of texture.ABCD or similar, I've done with air files as well, but not always my fault sometimes the there may be an error in the aircraft.cfg they too can have a spelling mistake or use upper case or visa versa.
