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.
