Try SHIFT + F4

If it doesn't work, then there are no afterburners installed in your aircraft Wink

do I need to do anything with an effects zip folder?

Which aircraft are talking about?

any fighter aircraft i.e f-15, f-16...

Not all of them have afterburners. The designer of the aircraft has to include it with the package. If he/she didn't include it, your jet won't have any afterburners.

If the Readme.txt file doesn't say anything about afterburners then it won't have it.

unless you do some aircraft mantinence yourself. Post the aircraft cfg and your email and I'll add some Afterburners for you

Chez I could be wrong but I think it has alot more to do with effects and texture then just the aircraft.cfg alone.

you need the cfg
an effect of an afterburner, e/g fx_ALPHA_Tonka_AB
the textures for that effect

job done

but where does that go?
do i cut and paste it in the file?
there is a whole list of stuff for the ABers but it's under the "light" of the aircraft.cfg file?

I sorry I'm a pain i'm a lil new at this stuff

like the f-15 TAC 1
there is stuff in there for AB's but i don't know what to do to get them on the aircraft.

light.17= 6, -23.0, 0.0, -0.23, fx_F14_Burnerflame , // Eng2 Afterburner Flame
light.18= 6, -20.0, 0.0, 0.53, fx_F14_Blueflame , // Eng1 Blueflame, when engine runs

What does this mean?

Not Necessarily... If the Afterburner was designed for a certain aircraft and then you put it on a different one it could be off. The last thing we need are afterburners coming out of the Vertical Stabilizer.

this means that the afterburner is linked to the lights, e.g when you hit say strobe lights it shows the afterburner

you just adjust the position of the ab e.g. same principle but these are for smoke positions on a f18

smoke.0=-53.00, 0, -0.0, fx_smoke_b (centre)
smoke.1 =-33, -20.00, 1.40, fx_smoke_r , (left tip)
smoke.2 =-33, 20.00, 1.40, fx_smoke_g ,Right tip)

This is true, but you need to experiment to get it just right Very Happy
