There are XML samples of all of the default FSX missions in the SDK.

Good Day.I also have the problem of creating the catogories. Must we edit the standard FSCatogories file in FSX or create one just for our mission we create. and where does the GUID com inplace.After I have created the first section of the mission and we have to text it. I place it in the tutorial catogories but dont see the mission when I start up FSX

I would suggest for your first attempt to just use one of the FSX standard categories. Be careful copying and pasting the GUID so that you include the brackets, etc.I'm not clear from your post if you placed all of the info in the Missions folder in FSX. You said tutorial categories..is that a folder/subfolder you created inside the Missions folder?

Max: Is this the folder that you have saved your mission files to?Flight Simulator XMissionsMissions in ProgressCreation Tutorial.This is not in the same folder as the Missions SDK, or in My Documents. You can change the names of folders to your preference, so long as they are inside a folder in FSXMissions, because that is where FSX will look for them. Inside of YOUR mission folder, there should be a sound subfolder for wav files and also 2 image files, an HTML briefing file (*.html), a flight file (*.flt) and a weather file (*.wx).If you have all of that right, go back through the Mission tutorial and check step by step that you have things named correctly, you made the correct modifications to the flt file, etc. It will then show up in the FSX Missions menu under beginner, or whichever level you chose.Hope that helps.

Good Day.Thanks for the advice so far. It realy helped and I managed to get the tutorial working. I now have tried another mission but with no luck. I did double check every thing again but it does not want to show up in my missions. Can any one just tell me what I am doing wrong here. I followed the manual step by step and rechecked but still nothing.See attached file.RegardsMax
