That's because SP2 requires 100% FSX compatible aircraft - not FS9 aircraft that "used to work". Do a search on "sp2 - backward compatibility" on this forum. There are numerous posts on this subject. Each aircraft's .mdl file now needs to be compiled with an fsx sdk-compliant compiler.

More that likely, if you load the "prop texture" in Imagetool.exe or DXTBMP.exe, and resave it as a DXT1 with no Alpha it will work again.

For what it is worth, I simply replaced the prop bmp in the texture folders of the aircraft that had the problem with one that worked from another plane.1. Rename the bmp that doesn't work.2. Copy one that does from another aircraft.3. Rename the copied file to the original title from the one that didn't work.For example, I used the bmp file from the Corenado V35 for the Super Constellation, Milton Shupe's D18 and Howard 500, and the Sandim Design Tupolev TU114 . Worked like a charm.Good luck:RTH

I have same problem with Milton Shupe's Spartan.The Spartan has propblade.bmp.The Maule has Prop_Maule.dds.If I change propblade.bmp to propblade.bmp.bak,copy the prop_maule.dds to spartan texture and rename it to propblade.bmp?Thanks,Ron
