747-400F Not Showing in FSX Aircraft Selection Menu

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

A few months back I uninstalled and re-installed FSX and associated add-ons including PMDG 747-400/F.  Everything re-installed properly, including my PMDG product.  The only issue with the PMDG 747-400 is that the Freighter aircraft aren't showing up in the FSX aircraft selection menu.  The 747-400 passanger aircraft and all of my add-on  repaints are all there however...no problems.  I  check my sim object files and the 400F folder is there and the aircraft.cfg file is intact.  I opened the aircraft.cfg file for both the 400 and 400F compare. I don't see anything glaringly different other than long range antennae settings are different....and the 400f has default location at a cargo terminal.

 

Anybody else experience this?  Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Tom S.

Have you tried selecting the aircraft type menu and searching for 747-400F? PMDG use aircraft type instead of a generic type/role entry which may help you find the sim.

Suppose this hasn't got anything to do with it, have you checked all variants in the fsx selection

I did search by aircraft type only, and by PMDG only.  Interestingly, as I drill down initially, FSX will give selections such as roto aircraft, prop aircraft, commerical passenger aircraft, but no mention of freighter type aircraft.  I can drill down further by searching only for 747 variants...then further specifically to PMDG.  For some reason the 747-400F deosn't show.  

 

I thought maybe the -400F aircraft.cfg file may have been corrupted.  I checked it and all looked as it should...comparing it against the  -400 cfg file.  Also, I checked the texture files and they seem OK.  

 

Peter, I typically have "all" selected in my FSX selection.  All other variants, add-ons and skins are present an accounted for. This isn't a super critical issue as I can enjoy the passenger 400 variants.  But it would be nice to understand why the -400F isn't showing up in the menu.  I really don't want to uninstall and reinstall the PMDG 747-400 product.

It will list whatever they enter for ui_typerole in the aircraft.cfg file. It won't be listed as a freighter unless PMDG listed it as such. PMDG use this field for aircraft type. Most other addon designers would put something like "commercial airliner". I prefer the PMDG idea because it makes much more sense if you have a lot of airliner addons.

 

This doesn't explain your problem but hopefully the background info is useful.

Kevin, Peter, 

 

Thanks for your input. Peter, I will post my  aircraft.cfg file entries here later today when I return home.   Keven,  I believe PMDG does/did infact enter the -400F as a freighter.  There are separate folders in the simobjects folder and the -400 and 400F have there own aircraft.cfg file with separate aircraft entries.  The PMDG provided 3 "house" freigthers at time of purchase (one for each engine type).  I added a UPS skin and sequenced it as the next entry (for a total of 4 aircraft entries in the cfg file).  

 

Before the I unistalled, the freighter versions would show up in the aricraft selection files. I could easily scroll through the thumbnails, find any/all 747s and would see the 3 PMDG house freighters and the UPS freighter.  

 

I have found in the past that when I  downloaded any new livery to the a respective cfg file, that repaint would not show up if I didn't sequence it directly after the last entry.  But this example is a problem with a new entry and not for boilerplate aircraft included with purchase  I'm not finding even the house PMDG 747-400F now.  I'm pretty certain I haven't deleted a line in the cfg file...though it's a possibility.  So, posting my -400F cfg file here might help.  

 

It's just a bit puzzling is all. I've downloaded quite a few repaints....and have a pretty good handle on sequencing them. Some repaints I've downloaded have actually been missing details in the cfg and texture files.  I found which details were missing and corrected accordingly.   The head scratching coninues.....

 

Thanks again for your insights.  I'll post my cfg file here later today.

 

Best Regards,

 

Tom S.

Yes, the -400F is a separate entry in the Airplane folder. What I meant was that you won't be able to select it from the menu by looking for "freighter" in the FSX menu. PMDG made the typerole entry "747-400F" and there is no other way an aircraft can be identified with a role. Once you get your aircraft.cfg problem resolved you will see what I was getting at.

Hi Kevin, 

 

I understand what you're saying now.  Regardless...when I search on "747-400" or "PMDG"  I only get the passenger variants....no freighter variants.  Anyway, Peter, Below is my Aircraft.cfg.  Let me know if you see anything unusual....

 

Thanks again!

 

Tom S.

So if you open the sim, and under "select aircraft" and look under aircraft manufacturer "BOEING"  there is no entry for any of these 747-400F ?

That is Correct.  I get no 747-400F entry.  All of my PMDG 747-400s entries show up though.  I checked all the "ui" lines to make sure there was continuity with all 400F types...with the variations identifying the engine type and 3rd party repaint description.  Still scratching my head on this one....

Getting back to an old unresolved topic.  I think I might have an explanation but need confirmation. I was checking my FSX.CFG file and noted that there are not  entries in the C:\Program Files (x86) ****  text lines for the 747-400F; Just for the 747-400.   Do the 747-400 and 400-F share the same program files in this regard.  I do note that all the 757 and 767, and 777 variants have program lines associated with them.  If the 747-400F has program lines, Id' appreciate if someone could copy them here. I'll paste the lines into my FSX.CFG. 

 

See my FSX.CFG below.

Hi Tom,

 

I checked and the -400F does not have any specific program lines. It uses the ones you have in your fsx.cfg file.

 

Your aircraft.cfg file also looks OK to me.

 

Have you checked your texture files e.g. texture.GEF folder to be found under the freighter folder PMDG 747-400F.

 

For the GE model, I count 37 files in the texture.GEF folder. What is important is there is a texture.cfg file present which maps back to the -400 Pax version. If this file is missing, then this could also explain missing aircraft.

 

Regards

Hi Mark,

 

Sorry for the late response. Thanks for the suggestion. I will check  for the texture files.  The texture.cfg does exist, as I've added variants to it such as UPS; and assigned it the next cfg sequence number.   So, the texture.cfg isn't the issue.    I'll let you know what I learn/find.

 

Thanks for your input!

 

Tom

Hi Mark,

 

The Texture.cfg is present in all Texture folders.  Below is the code in the Texture.GEF for instance.

 

[fltsim]

fallback.1=..\..\PMDG747-400\texture
fallback.2=..\..\..\..\Scenery\Global\texture
fallback.3=..\..\..\..\..\..\Scenery\Global\texture

 

I am perplexed.  

 

Tom S.
