Question about Boston V2.1

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. Goerge G. has released Boston V2.1 The readme states to manually remove the scenery from FS9 before installing the new version. Just to check, should I delete it from the scenery menu, then remove any folders on my system, or is there something else that needs to be done so I don't mess up my FS9 install? Thanks for your input.

No, the read me states that you should manually move the files from the update scenery and texture folders into your excisting folders and overwrite what's already there.

That's what it says all right. V2 required ful removal of the previous install but not this one.

actually Rune and Nes, it states quite clearly in the read-me / install instructions for V2 > "IMPORTANT: If you are using an earlier version of my scenery, you MUST manually remove it from the Flight Simulator database before installing V2."so, we have to manually Remove Completely the first version, and then install this new 30MB version.This version is the complete version, and has all the necessary files.it mentions nothing whatsoever about overwriting, or manualy copying any files from one to the other, at least, my read-me never stated any of this.both of you are giving miss-leading information out in here, and this could lead to problems on other peoples PC's and FS.

Steve, I believe the earlier posts from Rune and Nes about overwriting V2 with V2.1 are correct, from my reading of the install instructions. However, you are correct when you say the user was required to remove the first version before installing V2.Check it out.Jack

>both of you are giving miss-leading information out in here,>and this could lead to problems on other peoples PC's and FS.No, they're not. Perhaps it'd be a good idea to get your facts straight before you chide people for supposedly placing others at risk? This topic is about the just-released V2.1, not V2.Straight from the Bostan Logan V2.1 update readme:QUOTEUnzip the included zip file to a temporary folder of your choice.Copy all of the BGL files within the scenery folder to the Boston-Logan2 scenery folder& overwrite.Copy all of the BMP files within the texture folder to the Boston-Logan2 texture folder& overwrite.UNQUOTEI think an apology to Rune and Nes is in order...RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VSantiago de Chile

Talking about 2.1. :D It sure takes some time for the file to download. And look at the number of downloads already. Big thanks to George Grimshaw!

I humbly and Publicly apologise to Rune & Nes.I was in fact completely wrong.in my misgivings, I sincerely thought that they were referring to V2, and that the 2.1 was a typo, I did not even realise until now that there was a V2.1I'm downloading it now.again, sorry for jumping in with both feet.

No big deal as long as it's all sorted and the OP understands the correct answer to the problem, do not uninstall if it's for V 2.1, the new one. If I had a dollar for everytime I thought .................................................

Man I just installed the Boston Scenery package and most say, those taxiway and runway textures are amazing. I was wondering if there was a way to apply those taxiway/runway textures to the rest of FS default airports? Just curious.Thanks,Bill

The BOS textures are applied to custom runway geometry in GMAX.
