I have downloaded the Meyers 200D https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/4774/fsx-aero-commander-meyers-200d/, however the only thing that is visible in the virtual cockpit are the gauges, radios, and GPS. In the external view of the aircraft the only thing that is visible are the wingtips, propeller, and windows. I have downloaded it on two different computers with FSX. Any thoughts?
I don't think the video cards are up to rendering a graphic intensive aircraft (probably both laptops or just old).
Try turning down or off most of your slides, autogen, shadows, clouds and AI amongst others.
Let the Sim look very bad for a minute and see if the down loaded aircraft shows up better.
That will show if it's the video card(s) or a deeper problem.
Let us know how you do.
Both of the computers are desktops, however, one is old and not capable of much. My main computer is about a year old and is built specifically for gaming and simulation. It has 16 GB of DDR3 Ram, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti overclocked, and an Intel core i7 3770, with Windows 7 as the operating system. Nevertheless I did try turning down the settings and that did not solve the problem. Even when I select the plane in the free flight menu it is invisible(other than the windows, wingtips, etc.) in the gallery too.
These are his directions for installation.
1)After downloading the zip, locate it, and extract the file to a temp folder.
2)Copy the 200D Folder over to your FSX Aircraft folder.
3)Copy the cab.200d gauges file over to your FSX gauges folder.
Look at your graphics tab in FSX and make sure the DX10 box is unchecked.
I figured it out. Thanks for the help!
👍 Glad you got it to work!
