How to install .ptp files

Recommended Posts

In my many, many years owning PMDG products I've always only installed their liveries.   I'm now trying to install a livery not available through them.   I know how to install liveries (texture.xxx) files but have never encountered .ptp files.  I've searched throughout the forums and through Google to find the basic instructions (you would think that should be something easy to fine). 

I have made one attempt.  I found on my computer where PMDG *.ptp files are located and tried copying the downloaded *.ptp files into that folder hoping they would show up in the Operations Center Livery Downloader...they didn't.

So here is a very basic question whose answer I am astounded is so elusive.  How do you install PMDG liveries downloaded as *.ptp files into P3DV4.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi Ronnie,

Open up your PMDG Operations Center, and push the "?" key at the top right corner.  This will bring up the PMDG Operations Center User Guide.  Go to page 25 which will tell you how and where to put the .ptp files.

Open the OC and click on the help button (?), which opens the user manual for the OC.  It provides instructions on how to install 3d party liveries.

LOL Randall is quicker.

Thanks to all.   Just as an "excuse" to save a little face.   I had adjusted the scaling factor on my display to make the text size larger so that these 68 year old eyes could read the desktop text on my curved screen monitor.   This caused the right side of the Operations Center window to be truncated so the ADD button wasn't visible. (Yes it did warn me but I just thought it was text that was being truncated...didn't think that some buttons would not show as well)
