Repaints not showing up

Recommended Posts



I am trying to add repaints to my sim, I am using the SE edition of FSX and I am adding everything in the correct places.  I put the texture files in the correct a/c folder locations, I add the [fltsim.XX] text to the aircraft.txt folder and change the XX to the next number and everything.  However, the repaints don't show up when I start the sim.  This happens with every a/c that I have, PMDG, QW, Flight 1, even the included freeware a/c.

Yes I am running everything in admin mode, I even mapped my C and other drives so that "everyone" has access to modify files in the security settings.


If someone can please help, I would really appreciate it

Are you adding the texture folder name after the "="?

See here for help.
