Sp2 & old add-on A/C

After Sp2 install (see attached system details) I selected my ONLY add-on https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/1427/fsx-cessna-l-19d-o-1d-model-305c-bird-dog-military/
FSX - Cessna L-19D (O-1D) model 305C, Bird Dog, Military version on wheels L19D_FSX.zip

And part of the cowl is missing, also there's a hole below the elect panel, the panel used to be gray and the stick is new! But ONLY in this FSX view mode. Other view modes (fixed spot, 3-D cockpit) are normal. The FSX default piper cub came through Sp2 install OK.

I use X_Graphics to customize various FSX surfaces, and those were replaced with SP2 defaults. Was able to re-install the X_Graphics themes I like, no problem.

I also run FSX_GA_Traffic for extra AIs and they work as before.

I suppose, even running FSX on Xp with DX9, we gotta be careful of what old add-ons we install..

Ya there are others having issues with addon aircraft and sp2. I guess you would have to get with the plane's author for a fix. You could try deselecting dx10 in the graphics options which may or may not help.

Because I'm running FSX Sp2 on winXp OS I don't have the DX10 preview option, so this is DX9c.

Since inital post I've updated the vid card driver to current nVida and deleted & installed a new download of the L-19 to no effect, it's a hard fault.

I won't install another addon (payware or free) until the details specifiy; "works with FSX Sp2".
