Hi guys,

I'm a newbie in playing in fsx(deluxe). I just bought it 2 weeks ago. In the game when I am about to choose an aircraft to fly, only the airbus a321 does not appear on the screen. It only shows the door and the wings. All of their variations were affected that i do not know. I also like to download planes from websites and to add new textures. Of course, if u will add a texture you will make some tweaks or add some text at the aircraft.cfg file. Can this be the reason of me losing all the textures of the airbus a321? Because I tried to repair it but something after the repair says that another program ran that made the cd not finish the installation. Can the cd being "pirated" affect this kind of situation or it just depends on the program? What would you recommend? To repair it or reinstall the whole thing?

I did check out the demo once and found it OK, but do not recall what the aircraft file structure was.
Having said that, the obvious thing would be to reinstall, if you want default textures.

However, as you appear to have knowledge of aircraft.cfg files / folders, you could just
download other textures and put them in the appropriate place.

One source, Simviation:


You should get a text page, with details; if you hang on for a few seconds, the pages will load
with numerous pictures and details.

Bear in mind that unless you pay for premium access to the Simviation site,
the downloads will be painfully slow, (30kbps).

Membership is $19.95 for 12 months.
Express Members can expect download speeds up to 1mbps/Cable & 300kbps/DSL.

You are aware that there are other download sites; I found Simviation useful for the Combat FS series
and also for MS 2004 Century of Flight.

Just downloaded the FSX demo, out of interest; pretty straightforward layout, similar to the games
previously mentioned, (except Combat FS3). It helps if you have a decent chunk of RAM, I have 2.5GB.

FSX demo structure:

Location: Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X Demo


\Folder - Name of plane e.g. Lear45 (aircraft.cfg and Lear45.air (airfile) etc.)
\Texture (.dds texture files - 5mb to 14mb for the demo planes).

The overall file size for each plane is quite large, (35,775kb for the Lear), but if you only want different textures,
downloading should not be so tedious.

btw, you say you bought the program and then refer to a pirated CD.

If you don't have a genuine MS CD, you can always expect problems and help is not permitted in these forums,
as it would be a breach of forum rules.

The FSX forum would be a good place to ask-
