i figured it out.... if anyone who has a problem with this in the future... if you use photoshop to create your livery it does work to create your image, but it doesnt save it as the type of bmp file that wilco a380 can read... so when you load your paintkit into your texture folder, and run fsx you get so type of metallic livery... the solution is to save the livery that you created via photoshop using dxtbmp... and save it as 32bit file the 888-88 version the only version they have.... load it into your texture file run microsoft... and wah lah it works and the headache is over

Whahaaa,this reminds me to the guy running into a garage screaming " Have a look I inventend the wheel!!"Neverteheless I appreciate what 5000005 did.He really reported about the way he solved his problem.OK , that was old news , the same time he learned quiet a lot.Maybe he will be doing the same with something "we" never heard of before in future.Thats the spirit guys.CheersLeen

true to that ... i'd rather scratch my hair out then ask for help, i usually just paint with photoshop and save the bmp file and it works but the a380 had me dumbfounded, im not a paint kit vet, but i understand why other programs like dxtbmp are most commonly used especially for addon painting...lol... and wat FAQs?
