Problem with Flight Crew X using Default 747

Recommended Posts

I just bought Flight Crew X online, downloaded it (although didn't extract it because the program would run without being extracted) followed the instuctions and read the manual and installed Flight Crew X and FS2Crew for FSX. I did the registry checks as said, and made sure I had all of the programs. When I run FSX in Free Flight- the 747 aircraft chosen appears in black (instead of the model being shown) and when I load the tutorial, I can hear the sounds but the screen is black. I currently run FSX SP1 on Windows Vista Home Premium with the User Account Controls off. I have read the online forums and have tried reinstalling but with no luck. I even have tried reinstalling DirectX with no luck. The only thing I do (which is what I read to do) is that I restored the Groundsound.dll in FS2Crew. Was I not supposed to do that? Anyway, is there anything I can do, because I really want this program to work.Thanks,Jeremy Diestelkamp

Hello Jeremy,Thank you for the detailed report.This is for the FSX Default 747?Try de-activating the 747 version via the Start Center; that way your panel.cfg file for the 747 will be restored to its original, non-FS2Crew state.So if you can reproduce the 'black model'.Failing that, I'd try re-installing/upgrading your video drivers.I haven't had other report a 'black model' before, so the video card driver would be the first place to look.-Bryan

Thanks Bryan,What I did was update the driver-but that didn't work, so I uninstalled everything-including FSX(b/c I tried uninstalling Flight Crew X only with no luck) and now it works. Thanks for your quick response.Jeremy
