I have so many problem with AI and installed all myself. I never complained with FS or AI. I love to investigate myself. It is good for use your head brain make stronger when I get older my brain will be better than falling apart.   I have seen or discover problem so I edit or fix myself.  All you need to do is look for DXT3 not higher DXT. You will learn something yourself.  I have not asked in forum how to read flight plans line in notepad. I figured it out myself for a few days. I gotcha understand how it worked.    Enjoy your flight simmer and don't need to say annoying or crazy.  lol  Just a game!   ;D

Amen to that!!! Well said Stuart. It's a hobby for Pete's sake. Work on it yourself!!! Use these places as a reference if you have to, that is fine but do it yourself. That's why it's called a hobby. If it's not fun for you then quit. Nobody has to do it for you.

I don't think I've ever gotten angry at AI; it's a .bmp file mapped to a .mdl file, controlled by an .air and .cfg file.  How could you get angry at computer code?

As an old friend of mine from PAI once said, "it's a cartoon, for crying out loud!"

I used to only get angry at myself for missing stupid mistakes in (usually) the aircraft.cfg...
And when I found out what it was, it made me more satisfied when that repaint showed up.
And yes, I was also installing paints in the pre-aia era.. Flying an Xwing in FS2002 and stuff.. ;)

- A simple corrupted DXT1 repaint at EGLL that corrupted almost one hundred other repaints.. causing artefacts from any AI to the top left corner of the screen on nvidia graphics and a CTD afterwards.
- lacking AIA 747-400 for two weeks anywhere in the sim after merging the three folders (PW/GE/RR) The reason ? FDE_B744_Hidden.air marked as sim=AIA_747_400 in air file. I know it's a wrong manoeuver (to merge the three) but I dit it as a try.
Finally understood how UVW Maps works. O.O

LOL!  :D  :D  I saw the story long time ago.  I also like this different joke about fax machine.  A lady who got a new job. Boss asked her to do is fax calling here is two papers to be fax with that number. A lady says ok. She dialed and beep. Again, she dialed and beep. and same over and over like about 5 times  the boss heard the beep too many times and walked to her. Is there is any problem with fax machine? A lady said, oh well, yes, it is. The paper won't take it to the fax inside. The paper came out.  It does not make a call.   ::rolleyes:  LOL!  :D

This thread made me chuckle. Somewhat a lurker on forums. I make my own AI world as good as possible, dont really upload too much.

Ive installed hundreds of ai aircraft and can usually troubleshoot my way to the problem but one beat me last night for the first time ever. The veteran air IL76 available on Avsim.ru which I believed was the RATS IL76TD basepack repaint. Could I get it to show...could I heck. If anyone is able to get this one to show in the sim then fair credit to you. I tried the texture name, every IL76TD model going etc etc...to no avail, so if anyone wants to have a go feel free. Incidentally it was the first IL76 for RATS I have had to install...all meothers are SAMDIM/SKJ repaints.

But other than that AI has never really annoyed me, apart from the time it can take sometimes. But time=reward. If its wrong, its usually my fault and the IL76 above probably was.

Biggest cause of help I have been asked has normally been:

1. It doesnt show in the selector screen - answer change .air file to 0.
2. It still doesnt show - answer - check yopur ui_xxxxx spellings are correct.
3. When I select the airline no plane shows and it stops spinning - normally incompatable texture or model.
4. The plane is grey...again check spelling.

My other pet hate used to be mrai flightplans that had an aircraft stationary for 90% of the time. Know AIA have perfected a/c utilisation but those that are uploaded that dont try this simple trick of spreading it out argh.

But those niggles on the backbone of an amazing community...way too many to mention here...are minor blips in an enjoyable art-form.
