HI, I have installed FSX SP2 on my pc, which is not old, but new and running fsx happily with two screens and good frame rates, but since I have installed SP2 I am getting great looking sea and water graphics and textures but black land textures, especially when near land and underneath the aircraft! Please help! I have tried playing around with the settings moving the sliders to the left etc.... and also with DirectX10 which I turned off the preview due to some aircraft textures going black.
First you load SP1 then SP2.
To be honest, SP2 can give you problems if it's installed on an older FSX.
The best way is to install it on a fresh FSX or like I did install Acceleration after you install FSX.
Acceleration has SP1 and SP2 built in and never causes problems.
