Is this the file you're having problems with:

If not, tell us the name of the file and where you downloaded it from. Idea

DEMO_FX
-----------------------------------------------------------
Dynamic Airshow Demonstration Smoke Effects
-----------------------------------------------------------
02-12-03 version 1.0
-----------------------------------------------------------
Features:
-----------------------------------------------------------

1. Six translucent color choices:

> blue, green, orange, red, white, and yellow

2. Three AC postion choices:

> port-wing, center-fuselage, and starboard-wing

3. Dynamic rotation of smoke according to postion:

> wing vortex swirls and prop wash vectoring

4. Four built-in "Y-offset" values from AC "zero" datum:

> +1, 0, -1, -2 ft., (and -3 ft. @ center only)

5. Each effect filename is self-descriptive:

> fx_DEMO-2_cntr_YELLOW.fx = a yellow demo smoke
for center position, 2 ft below AC "zero" datum

-----------------------------------------------------------
Installation:
-----------------------------------------------------------

1. The "DEMO_Effects" folder has 80 small (2KB) fx
files: the best way is to put them all into the
FS2002 "effects" folder...

2. Below is an example of the [smokesystem] section of
a typical aerobatic biplane aircraft.cfg file...

With this method you can pause FS2002 in window view,
edit the AC aircraft.cfg and save, then unpause FS,
reselect the AC and fly with a different smoke color..

This one below is set for port=red, center=white, and
starboard=blue...

[SMOKESYSTEM]
//---------------------------------------------------------
//---- Adjust w/slashes & put "smoke.X" in order ----------
//---------------------------------------------------------
//----------------- Port Wing -----------------------------
smoke.0=0.0, -1.0, -9.90, fx_DEMO-2_port_RED
//smoke.0=0.0, -1.0, -9.90, fx_DEMO-2_port_WHITE
//smoke.0=0.0, -1.0, -9.90, fx_DEMO-2_port_BLUE
//smoke.0=0.0, -1.0, -9.90, fx_DEMO-2_port_GREEN
//smoke.0=0.0, -1.0, -9.90, fx_DEMO-2_port_YELLOW
//smoke.0=0.0, -1.0, -9.90, fx_DEMO-2_port_ORANGE
//--------------- Starboard Wing --------------------------
//smoke.1=0.0, -1.0, 9.90, fx_DEMO-2_starb_RED
//smoke.1=0.0, -1.0, 9.90, fx_DEMO-2_starb_WHITE
smoke.1=0.0, -1.0, 9.90, fx_DEMO-2_starb_BLUE
//smoke.1=0.0, -1.0, 9.90, fx_DEMO-2_starb_GREEN
//smoke.1=0.0, -1.0, 9.90, fx_DEMO-2_starb_YELLOW
//smoke.1=0.0, -1.0, 9.90, fx_DEMO-2_starb_ORANGE
//------------------- Center ------------------------------
//smoke.0=0.0, 0.0, 0.00, fx_DEMO-3_cntr_RED
smoke.2=0.0, 0.0, 0.00, fx_DEMO-3_cnrt_WHITE
//smoke.0=0.0, 0.0, 0.00, fx_DEMO-3_cntr_BLUE
//smoke.0=0.0, 0.0, 0.00, fx_DEMO-3_cntr_GREEN
//smoke.0=0.0, 0.0, 0.00, fx_DEMO-3_cntr_YELLOW
//smoke.0=0.0, 0.0, 0.00, fx_DEMO-3_cntr_ORANGE
//---------------------------------------------------------

3. Smoke coordinates are "Y"(doesn't work!), "Z", and "X";
"Y" coords should always be zero, others can be edited
for a particular AC...this is why "Y-offset" is used in
the effect files.

4. Below are versions from other aircraft.cfgs:

GMAX P-51 'Reno' Mustang(Orig. design by Roger L. Dial.
Flight Dynamics © Steve Small FSD. Sounds © Mike Hambly):

[SMOKESYSTEM]
smoke.0=0.0, -15.0, 0.0, fx_DEMO-1_cntr_RED

Siai Marchetti SF260 (by RealAir Simulations (tm)):

[SMOKESYSTEM]
smoke.0=0.0, -5.0, -13.0, fx_DEMO_port_RED
smoke.1=0.0, -5.0, 13.0, fx_DEMO_starb_BLUE
//smoke.2=0.0, -16.0, 0.0, fx_DEMO-1_cntr_WHITE

Default Extra-300:

[SMOKESYSTEM]
smoke.0=0.0, -2.0, -13.0, fx_DEMO_port_RED
smoke.1=0.0, -2.0, 13.0, fx_DEMO_starb_BLUE

Default Camel:

[SMOKESYSTEM]
smoke.0=0.00, -16.00, 0.00, fx_DEMO-1_cntr_RED

5. Copy any of the above to the AC aircraft.cfg to start,
then edit coordinates as required...

-----------------------------------------------------------
Other Notes:
-----------------------------------------------------------

1. The lines below can be included temporarily in the AC
[smokesystem] to help locate coordinates, as they are
visible blue lights...

This is for perfectionists like me who want the effects
to be located exactly🙂

Open the referenced fx files with Notepad to see where
the "Y-offset" is adjusted....

//smoke.1=0.0, -1.0, 9.90, fx_smoke_COORD_wing_Tester
//smoke.0=0.0, 0.0, 0.00, fx_smoke_COORD_cntr_Tester

2. For ICFX Radial Engine start-up effects users: Revised
and improved version coming soon...

Ok let's start with an easy one, the EXTRA300:

Open the folder DEMO_Effects.

Copy and paste the contents into the /Flight Simulator2002/Effects - folder.

Open the 'extra300' aircraft folder.

Open the aircraft.cfg file (with Notepad).

Find the [SMOKESYSTEM] section.

Make your [SMOKESYSTEM] section look exactly like this:

[SMOKESYSTEM]
//smoke.0=0.00, -0.70, 1.40, fx_smoke_w//
smoke.0=0.0, -1.0, -9.90, fx_DEMO-2_port_RED
smoke.1=0.0, -1.0, 9.90, fx_DEMO-2_starb_BLUE

Close the aircraft.cfg and save changes when prompted.

Now you can load FS2002 and fly the Extra300. To activate the smoke hit <I> -- that's all. 😎
