Feel stupid, but added some missions today, now when i load fsx up it says "no missions available". The directory exists and is populated with all including new ones added.
Any Help to get my missions back??
Odd, I never use the missions (yes I did the first 4 out of curiosity).
The only solution I can come up with is to drop in disk 1 and choose repair.
Fair warning, like with all changes there is the possibility of screwing up something else.
Thanks Radar, didn't think of repair. Funny thing is that I was just searching for fsx.cfg and I can't find it on the hole computer. wondering if this is the problem.
thanks again, will do.
Dang, the repair didn't work. Guess I'll do a reinstall. Thanks though.
Too bad all that work, let us know how it works out.
I had the same problem. Cfg went missing. tried to repair but no luck. Made a total uninstall and manually removed some files. Remember to backup saved flights!)
Reinstalled and all OK.
For people like me with non-english windows ( norwegian-language version) remeber during installation to choose where to put FSX because non-english windows create two different folders and FSX might end in the non-english folder, causing all kinds of problems....
You could try a system restore back to the date before the wipe.
Been a while I know, but I wanted to let everyone know how I restored all my missing missions just in case someone else has this problem.
Kind of by accident I recovered my missions listings in FSX. The problem was that I only had one mission listed inside FSX, although I have approx. 32 missions installed including "Mission Blackhawk" but none except one "Boston Skyscrapper" was showing up.
After looking around in the FSX\Missions sud directory I found that I had 12 other mission sub/dir's there, including the "Mission Blackhawk", "Pilot for Hire", etc. sub/dir.. then I looked for the "Boston Skyscrapper" mission as that was the only one appearing and I found that all the files for Boston were in the root FSX\missions directory, not in a sub named for such.
So as an experiment, I created a sub for Boston "\FSX\Missions\Boston Skyscrapper" and relocated all the files from the \Missions root to this sub. Then I fired up FSX and there they were all 32 plus missions were now available. Weird and I can't tell you how surprised I was, but this really was my last attempt to get my missions back before I did a complete uninstall and reinstall of FSX.
Hope i was not too wordy and explained it well. I am not sure how I lost all the missions, only thing i can figure is prehaps I installed Boston wrong and it blocked all the other missions out.
99% of all the trouble i have had with fsx was because of freeware missions. i have no intention of trying any new ones because of that.
