FTXG+P3DV2 I don't see anything....

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I just downloaded and installed GTX Global to my P3DV2 directory.

Everything seemed to go smooth the ORBX folder is in my LM/P3D folder with files in it.
 

I start up P3D at Princess Juliana and the airport and island looks just like default.

 

Is there something else I forgot to do???

You do know that FTX global does not change any airports, right? It's a global texture/night lighting addon.

No elevation changes or anything?

How do I know FTXG is working???

Because Princess Juliana contains photo texture for entire island by default?

I was really hoping you AVSIM guys could help me out.

 

I really don't feel like making another log in for yet another payware forum just to to have to jump through hoops for support.

Of course I would get a quicker answer here at AVSIM without having to verify my order number and all that blah blah crap.

 

Maybe everything did install corrrectly its just I havent really flown around enough to tell the difference.

I have touched FSX in  a year and I just jumped into P3D so maybe there is a diff from default textures.

St Maarten is a bit of an exception to the norm in P3D2 (and Fsx).

 

Just try flying somewhere else; Europe's a dramatic improvement with FTXG, Alaska's great and even the more barren regions of Africa are significantly improved.

Well if your going to have a login somewhere else, Orbx would be one. If you suspect that you did nothing wrong, do what Dave said and try some other regions. IMO the caribbean neads work, possibly its own personal OpenLC from Orbx. Now that would be great!

Is there a green check on the FTX Global box in the FTX Central utility?

If so, then it's installed and working.

Make sure global is enabled in FTXcentral. Spawn at the airport at night and see if you have night lighting.

So I have to have FTX Central even if my only ORBX addon is FTX GLOBAL???

Any Orbx product installs FTX Central...it's their interface for activating scenery.

Did you read the manual for FTX Global? It would have told you this.

Ok what manual????

The installer came with a simple text file that says...

 

PLEASE READ ME!

 

Orbx Simulation Systems - FTX Global
 
PLEASE NOTE: Before installing this product you must have the Microsoft 
.NET Framework v4.0 installed and if you have other Orbx FTX regions

If you open up FTX Central, on the right side should be a box saying "PDF Documents". If you click that box, then underneath should appear the manuals in PDF form.

Did you do the part in bold or did you just copy the .1, .2, .3 ... files into P3D?

 

The file at the bottom probably has the .EXE extension and that's the one you run after extracting them all from the zip file.

Yea I sure did Mesh.

 

I extracted them into a folder first before I ran the exe.

I did some flying around in Miami and those have def gotta be default textures.

Gonna go ahead and make a login at ORBX now:( wish me luck

 

I installed FTXG into a fully default non modded P3DV2 do I need FTX Central??

Where do I get it from because it didn't come with FTX Global.

 

 

(Edit)..well goes to show how many different logins I have with these sim payware forums.

I had an ORBX login all along totally forgot I created one long ago ahahahah

Ok guys figured it out!

 

FTXG wasn't fully installing because I kept closing the wrapper dialogue screen.

That FTXG Wrapper dialogue screen must remain open throughout the whole duration of the installation wizard. Like ORBX said.

 

Was wondering why my ORBX folder was only 87MB.

 

I'm all set now Ill jump in the cockpit later check out the FTX Global textures and lights.

 

Big thanks to

Glad you got it sorted!

 

Yes I know the part you mean, there ends up being two dialogue boxes on the screen during installation and it's easy to accidentally close the wrapper one, once you see that main installer box running            - done it myself in the past!
