Livery Manager - 800WL

Recommended Posts

Anyone having problems with the 800WL liveries? I add them and they don't appear, I add again and it appears, if I add a different one the old one disappears? The 900WL's have been working fine ever since the "fixed" them right after release.

Open the 800WL aircraft.cfg and make sure the only repaint entries are the PMDG paints

Try running the livery manager as admin

Only thing I can suggest is a NGX reinstall. For support, please sign your full name in future.

You are exactly describing this issue, have you followed this?

This post describes how to fix any issues you may be having with the liveries and the Livery Manager: The initial release of the plane on Thursday 8/4 went out with a mistake in the aircraft.cfg files that set them to read-only during the install. This can cause issues where the files get corrupted after the Livery Manager tries to write to them and fails. The installer was corrected late on Friday 8/5 - if you purchased after this date or if you've installed the new hotfix from 8/11 you likely do not have any read-only issues. aircraft.cfg corruption is the source of numerous problems with the livery manager including liveries not installing correctly, the livery manager crashing, etc. Here's how to start over completely clean with your livery situation: 1. Go to your FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes folder - you'll see the four NGX folders there: PMDG 737-800NGXPMDG 737-800NGX WLPMDG 737-900NGXPMDG 737-900NGX WL 2. Open the folders in sequence and do the following: a. Delete every texture.xxx folder *except for texture.pmdg, texture.common, texture.vc and texture.900*. DO NOT delete those folders or you're going to need to reinstall the airplane. b. Delete the aircraft.cfg file and any aircraft.cfg_old file that might be there in the folder. It's important to delete both. 3. Download this zip file and copy the clean aircraft.cfg for each variant into its appropriate folder within SimObjects\Airplanes:http://downloads.pre...rcraft_cfgs.zip 4. You're now back to a completely clean configuration as if the product was just installed, now sans any read-only files. To install liveries: 1. Create a folder somewhere, such as your desktop or inside the FSX\PMDG folder and call it "Liveries." 2. Download any liveries you want from the PMDG site to the folder location from step 1:http://www.precision...s/liveries.html 3. Unzip the .ptp file that's inside each .zip file. (We wanted to do just the ptp files by themselves, but Internet Explorer doesn't play well with files that it doesn't have a definition for - all the more reason to use Chrome or Firefox folks!) I recommend that you redownload any livery zips/ptps that you might already have. Many of them have been updated over the last couple days as issues were found. The latest batch just went up minutes before this post and all known issues are now corrected. 4. Run the Livery Manager with the Right Click\Run as Administrator command. 5. Click the aircraft type on the left that you're trying to install. 6. Press the "Select Livery to Install" button. This will pop open a standard Windows file management dialog. Navigate to the folder from step 1 that has your ptp files in it. 7. Choose the livery ptp files you want to install - you can use shift and control click to select multiple files and install them all at once. 8. Press OK and the liveries should install. Let us know if there's still any issues after going through those steps. EDIT - the original version of this post had a mistake - if you deleted texture.common and texture.vc please uninstall the NGX from control panel and then reinstall it from the installer (download a new copy if you like from your purchase email, it has the read-only CFGs fixed already). Really sorry about that if you were affected.
