having probelms installing Douglas_C-47_V3.12.beta

Recommended Posts

For some reason I am having problems installing I believe this is how you title it Douglas_C47_V3.12.beta.  I have the Douglas_C-47_V2 whch is the older addition.  Can someone please help me out on this and be as specific as possible on how you downloaded this product, which is a great piece of freeware.

 

 I know you are supposed to have the titles, sound, soundai, aircraft cfg, model, textures, panel,, and their is also a new and updated vc.

 

For some reason Ican't install it is not on the FSX menue with all the other planes.

 

What am I doing wrong here ? I have Windows 7 780 gtx 3770k FSX Gold Edition

Do you have the appropriate folder in your FSX/Simobjects/airplanes folder titled Douglas_C-47_V3.12_Beta?

 

Does this folder contain all of the proper folders like model, manual, texture, texture.EATS_315221,

 

texture.paratrooper, aircraft.cfg and the proper .air file?

 

Just doing a little correction edit:  The download contains 2 folders Effects, and the aircraft which is

 

Douglas_C-47_V.312_Beta.  Copy all of the Effects to your FSX/Effects folder and then copy the

 

Douglas folder to FSX/Simobjects/Airplanes folder.   DONE!

So...in your Simobject/Airplanes folder you have the folder called Douglas_C-47_V.3.12_Beta with all of the

 

appropriate things that a full aircraft has.  Correct so far?  Yet it does not show in your select aircraft screen????

 

Do you have show all variations checked?  I'll show a picture of this.

I have all of the categories, aircraft cfg, model, panel.cfg, sound.cfg, soundai.cfg.  ,texture file, texture.Paratrooper, texture.Eats_315221, and model. I also have in the fsx menue to show all aircraft, and I have the plane listed in fsx as  simobjects/ airplanes as Douglas_C-47V_3.12_Beta.

 

What else could I be doing wrong.  How about this I have the title model, and inside that folder,  Listed  in that folder I have,the model.cfg, C-47R_interior.MDL, and finally C47V3_1.MDL

 

Should that folder be called C47V3_1.MDL, instead of model

Inside that folder labeled model should be 3 files: C47R_Interior.MDL, C47V3_1.MDL, and model.cfg   The model folder is labeled correctly.  The [fltsim.xx] in the aircraft.cfg should look like this:  You show in your post a panel.cfg....How about a panel folder?

Props not moving??  Is this from a cockpit or outside view?  Keep in mind that this is a VERY Graphics intensive aircraft.

this is unbelievable this plane, interior,  props are not moving from either way, looking out from cockpit, and looking from the outside or spot view.

Yet you say it starts up and flies?  I'm baffled!  Anyone else got a clue?  You might try on the SOH forum.
