Auto-Install Aircraft Question

Recommended Posts

I forgot! At times there have been posts about folks losing all AI traffic, and other unsundry happenings when using an auto-exec. program that comes with some aircraft.Advice has been to back-up something. I can't remember what. I'm about to try to install PAB's Airbus, the T-38, and the Boeing Stearman from many months back. Can anyone advise me the safest way to go about doing this?ThanksRick

jerrycwo4If you go ahead and use the "auto" installer, make a back up of the below files as these are the ones that are somtimes deleted and cause your AI's to stop. You can find these files in your AIRCRAFT Folder in Fs2002: Fs2002/ Aircraft. They will be in the bottom of the folder under all of the aircraft folders. Make a copy of these files and save for 'a rainny day'. I've had to use my 'saved' files a number of times. jerry

OK, how can you know if these files are the correct ones. Do these files change or is it just necessary to see the listed files in the folder? My aircraft.cfg file only shows 14 callsigns. Here's the list :-AirwaveWorld TravelGaiaOrbitSoarLandmarkPacificaGlobal FreightwaysAmerican PacificEmerald Harbor AirNobleNoble AirMidlandAny AirlineSo, must I change it and if so, how? Same question about the other files listed in your post.Thanks

I wouldn't even worry about the airlines.cfg file but if you want you can download an updated versionSearch the library section fs2002 Miscellaneous for accalls.zip or use "airlines" in the search field. There are other informational files you can download.

THANKS Folks for the comprehensive replies. This info. will allow me to use these auto-install-exe aircraft with confidence that should something in the default files be erased, I can recover them.Much appreciated!!!!Rick
