Hi Folks

Is anyone able to help.  I am not abel the to get the majority of the repaints I download to work.

I am following instructions on the files but they will not show up in sim.

I hace put the cfg for the 737-800 below and the file structure, this is one of the ones I am struggling with.

However, it wasn't always that way\s in the first few years of production, there were so few orders that Boeing considered canceling the program. They didn't, and the airplane has more than proven itself in over three decades of service."

description=Il n'est pas surprenant d'apprendre que le premier fabricant mondial d'appareils commerciaux est à l'origine de l'avion de ligne le plus populaire au monde. Le 737 est devenu l'avion de ligne le plus vendu au monde lorsque son nombre de commandes a atteint 1 831 en juin 1987 (dépassant le record de vente précédemment établi par le Boeing 727). Toutefois, il n'en a pas toujours été ainsi. En effet, durant les premières années de production, le nombre de commandes était si faible que Boeing a considéré l'annulation du programme. Le fabricant a poursuivi ce dernier et l'avion a largement fait ses preuves pendant plus de trente années de service.

The file structure is:-

texture.2
texture.KLM
aircraft.cfg

It looks good to me.
Look at the tab that you choose the aircraft that you want to fly and find the box that states "show all variations".
Put a checkmark in it and look for the new paints, they may not be under the name that you think they should be.

As far as I can see your doing it right.
Be sure that the new textures that you are adding are for the aircraft you have.
They won't work on any other.

Maybe try starting with the number "1" not zero, anything might make a difference
