Niklas,I have just installed this ATLAS texture - texture.rr_he_kkk_tc-oga_2003.zip - and have all the lights ok.Do please check your default flight again - the only way I can reproduce the fault is if I load with the default flight avionics switch off.John R

Niklas,The livery does not matter - I only use Phoenix for testing.Your switch procedure should work so please look again at the default flight:1. Start FS9 to the "Create a Flight" Page - you should see the Cessna 172 and Seattle-Tacoma as the location.2. Select "Fly Now" and let the simulator load.3. You should have the Cessna sitting on the runway at Seattle with engine running and the two red master switches both on. If not start the engine and switch the master switches on4. Now change to the PSS 757 and try again.I'll be back on line in an hour so please let me know how you get on.Good LuckJohn

Niklas,As long as you have Cold & Dark set in the set up menu, the 757 will load cold & dark BUT you must have intially loaded FS9 to the FS9 default flight.This initialises the sim correctly and the PSS will then load cold & dark {or to whatever state you have in the set up menu}.As with other complex add-ons, PSS require FS9 to be initialised at the default flight prior to loading the PSS programme.Try it this way - it tedious but once you get going, I can explain how to go straight to the PSS aircraft.I'll be on line this evening.John

Niklas,Load Edit and Fuel Planner should be in the folder FS9/PSS/757. If they are not there I suggest you do a re-install from the PSS web site. V easy and only takes a few minutes.The panel problem is very likely caused because you are still not using the correct default flight.Please go here:http://www.phoenix-simulation.co.uk/defaul...displayfaq&id=8and follow the instructions.Again let me know how you get on as there is an alternative method.Good Luck - we will get you there!John

Niklas,We are getting there.The PSS/757 folder should have 13 files {I have a new download as a check} so do a re-install to get the load editor and fuel planner.John
