What Is The Issue?
« on: June 29, 2013, 05:30:49 PM »
I still can't get the Ai Aardvark 747 to work. Is there anything wrong you can see?



It's driving me crazy!

I assume the model and texture maps contain all the correct files needed? Further I assume the fltsim title matches the title in the aircraft.txt of the Virgin flightplans?

Everything else looks ok to me.

Good you got it fixed. This was all due to one of the most annoying default settings ever devised by MS! You can solve it like this - it's one of the first things I will do on any new Windows install:

Windows Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options -> View -> Uncheck "Hide Extensions for known file types"

::mad::<Rant>This actually really gets me annoyed because WTF is a 'known file type' anyway?! I assume it was meant to be anything with a unique and recognisable icon? But then all files that open with a certain program by default will have the same icon so how do I then know the difference between a .gif and a .bmp image if they both open in PSP, or tell notepad that I want to save as aircraft.cfg and not aircraft.cfg.txt. NOT COOL!</Rant>
