Whenever I download a plane it goes fine but I dont know how to get them in the simulator to actually fly them. Please help[/b]
Aloha Y, Well you just shove really hard. Okay joking aside I'm going to presume that you have unzipped the file and have it in your hot little hands,next you open the MAIN folder of your FS and look for a file
that says aircraft,open the file and therein you will see differant aircraft folders, now take that file in your hand and place it in thefile with the others,now go fly(this is assuming that you didn't d/load a file that also has gau.files ) which would mean that I will be back to explain that later.
If I may add:
Here is one way to do it. (Hard way)
I do it a more complicated way,but it works.
Make certain you have a plane not just textures.
Unzip the file and now it's in it's own little window, you work from there. Dump the jpgs.
dblc on "my computer"
dblc on the "C" drive icon.
dblc on "program files"
dblc on "Microsoft Games".
dblc on "Flight Simulator.
Now you have all the folders laid out in front of you.
Follow the directions in the read-me that came with the aircraft.
Put the gauges in the gauge folder.
Put the effects in the effects folder.
Put the aircraft in the aircraft folder, make certain it has the correct name of the plane.
Flood control kept kicking in but obviously it posted anyway. Now I cant delete.
This entire system needs rethinking. It's not crowded enough for flood control and logging in is a royal pain. Filling out your name, password and secret code instead of Windows saving it is keeping many from posting in the first place and certainly coming back.
Yes I'm a moderator on a very busy golf sim board.
The best way is to visit Flightsim.com where you will find a great tutorial and graphics that will guide you through every step including installing panels and sound
