Hi Everyone,
I've been in contact with Gary Hayes of Project Opensky, and he generously allowed me to post his excellent repainting tutorials here. They are in .PDF format, so you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, if you don't already have it.

Chris

They work - you just need to download Adobe Acrobat Reader (free)

correct...they do work but only with Internet Explorer not Mozilla Firefox.

Are you willing to answer any questions about the contents of the PDFs or shall I bombard the Project Opensky site?

Sounds like some people have the Adobe Acrobat PDF plug-in and some don't.

Firefox is a browser. To view those tutorials you need Adobe Reader.

Whether you use IE or Firefox is irrelevant in this context since the browswer is used for downloading - not viewing the tutorials.

Arrow http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

The only way to go!!! Very Happy

I went there and the program does not install on my computer. Says something about 16 bit not compatable, etc. Is there an alternate to this program that can be used?

According to some info I found in the Posky forums, you don't have to use Image Tool, you can use DXTBmp instead.

From what I figure, both apps. do the same thing, convert your files into different formats.
You can get DXTBmp here Arrow https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/2883/dxtbmp-dxt-extended-bitmap-editor/

I guess its a bit late but all the same...

The Image Tool used by Gary in his tutorials is the Image Tool that comes with "FS2004 gmax SDK". Download that from FS2004 official site. And you should find a single exe - Image Tool.

Gary uses that image tool. Its quite a handy tool.

Goodluck

Try this link instead for DXTBmp Arrow http://www.mnwright.btinternet.co.uk/

You'll have to click on the appropriate button to get to the page. Cool

If IE7 won't take you there. FF will Big Grin
