Some of the textures on some of the livieries for the PMDG 747 (Pax) seem to be blank?

Recommended Posts

Maybe about a month ago i made a topic about this but since no one seemed to care about it i soon forgot about it.But recently this has been bugging me and i just had to give it another go. Anyway on most notably on the KLM and Air New Zealand(There's possibly more) livieres the flaps and main landing gear covers (i think there called) have no texture there just blank white please don't take offence but im very surprised that this error got past beta.Will this error possibly be addressed with the FSX compatibility patch and if not does anyone know a quick fix for this?Doh!! sorry i keep for getting to sign my nameRegards,Ryan

Im sorry to bump an old topic, but i have searched the forums, and found no awnser, only other users with this problem.I spoke to Aerosoft (as its thier version i have) about the problem, and followed thier instructions. it has ended with me posting here.Im seeing no Slat textures on almost all of the liverys i have (all DXT3 versions, with no intention of using 32Bit) and no gear door textures on some.Flew a flight today, and although it didnt ground me, it was unsightly to look at, and spoiled what is otherwise a very pretty aircraft.here is the thread at Aerosoft. http://www.forum.aerosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=8705 As you can see, i have tried uninstalling the liveries, and reinstalling them, using both the disk and the ones on your website. I have not tried the 32Bit textures, and this will cause unnessacary strain on my system. (not serious in the cruise but the more frames the better)Hope you can help chaps.Peace and Love,Fred 'mulletman' Clark.PS: Other than this, this is so much fun to fly. I am loving every moment i sit in the left seat. Only thing that bugs me (apart form the texture) is the lack of a lbs fuel planner. im not into spending hours on planning. just enough to get me flying relistically.Any hew, as i said, hope you can help.

Really, well that is news. I presumed it was just the DXT3 stuff.Apparently Aerosoft have spoken to PMDG and the installers on the PMDG website fix the problem. have you tried this and has it worked?Its always good to know your not alone with an issue though!

go to the aircraft folder and then each texture folder and make sure there are over 100 files in each. otherwise copy and paste but do not overwrite from the main texture folder inside the pmdg aircraft folder

Fred - Sorry it took so long to reply but here is what PMDG said. "Some of the early version of several liveries suffered from this problem but they were corrected and you should be able to download the latest version of each and install those and you should be all set." If i understand this right they updated "most" of the livieries, i do not think they updated the Air New Zealand or KLM liveries yet.Alex - I'll try your suggestion.

>go to the aircraft folder and then each texture folder and>make sure there are over 100 files in each.100 files? Even my stock PMDG textures don't have that. I only have 76 in each of my folders. Are we supposed to have 100+ textures?

Alex - Are you sure there are suppose to be 100+ files? I have everyone of the liveries for the 747 and in each of the folders there are only 76 files.

yep, i only have 76. And the files i redownloaded and installed didnt work. that includeds BA, United, Air India and KLM.I thought about ovver writing the wing texture files with the stock PMDG ones, but isnt the wing colour airline specific?Or will vary form livery to livery anyway.

my bad I was thinking of another airplane. Just make sure the texture number in the folder just called texture is the same as the texture folder for your addon aircraft

right. they are the same.Also, the dates on the livery's i downloded recently are the same for every texture file as the original installers.

I will bump this one again, as im still after a solution, but i have checked out some other things.It looks like one livery i dowwnloaded form the AVSIM library has the same problem. Thus i thought it could be a model fault. I was wrong, as after a reinstall the problem remains, and seemingly on all variants (although some are worse than others)Thare are 76 texture files in every folder, and i am using DXT3 versions. I also have the Areosoft Version of the product, and i have spoken to them, but they suggested coming here.I also looked into coiong the wing textures form other 747s. However very few actually have the same colours. Some (such as the Air India sceme) even have thier Registration printed under and above the wing!

Almost a month old now, but i want to ask a new question. Who HASNT got this problem?Was fliking through the latest issue of PC Pilot last night, and came to page 50. Here you will find thier new series of guides on Jet airliners.But what i did notice was that the wing has EXACTLY the same textures missing as on my 744. To cap that off, im forever flicking through the screenshots forum to see the missing textures.Now either im completely loosing the plot, or everyone else is, becuse surely this isnt right?(PS: Havent been here in a while, so im only just getting the sound update today; so have i missed the solution?)
