I have reinstalled the game after a long time. I am wanting to use all the great add ons here but where do I start? Is there a launching point? Please help I have none installed.
Here is a step by step set of instructions, how to install new aircraft.
Do just one at a time in case of error you'll know which did it.
I keep getting an error. Not sure what im doing wrong
Tell us exactly what6 the error say's.
Is FSX on the "C" drive.
Aircraft initialization failure
and something about a copyright
yes its on the c drive
This should give you a few ideas.
Followed it to a T and still got the same thing. I suck
Ok I think I'm making headway. I installed the service pack. I downloaded a plane from Posky and it worked except all that was visible was the bootom of the plane, landing gear etc. The first two I downloaded still didnt work. Gonna try another.
Just installed another and the outer shell isnt showing up. Im looking at the seats and wheels lol
If only part of the aircraft shows the chances are that your video card isn't strong enough to render something that graphic intensive.
Try shutting off autogen, shadows and AI and clouds.
It will look bad but the idea is to see if you can see the entire aircraft not just parts.
If this works then it proves that your card is too old.
ill give it a shot
that didnt work either. im downloading service pack 2. maybe this will work. i stupidly missed that one
Ok I uninstalled service pack 2 and it started working. S i reinstalled it and it appears to be working. THANKS!
You have to fool around with it when you have problems.
Glad you have it working.
I appreciate all your help!
