AFD files question...

Recommended Posts

Hi, I guess the AFD files are AFCAD generated. They are giving me a headache now, and can't find any trace on them on any of the FS2002 CD's. I suspect they won't be there since they are not MS, but came from the people who made AFCAD. How can I find out how these files work or change them. I need the original source for them. Any help woudl be appreciated,regards,Max

Microsoft has made a set of them for each airport. All AFD files are in a couple CAB files in one of the disks and are named something like Eunwadf.BGL.

Have a similar problem. I can not select any airport in the goto menu that I have installed an AFCAD file. Can select any airport that has a default file. I gave the above suggestion a try, the scanner found one .bgl file no good. I completely removed/uninstalled the scenery file that had the bad .bgl. Still same problem. Ran scanner again, it comes up clean now. Wondering if anyone has a suggestion, before I do the dreaded uninstall MSFS and/or just hit the "restore all airports"(definately the first move) button in AFCAD. But both will be a royal pain in the butt. So thought I'd through this to the guru's and see if someone could come up with something.Background:-added quited a bit of scenery/afcad files this weekend. All seemed to work 4.0. -Only thing I can think of off top of my head is on airport I was modifing the AFCAD, had a real tough go around in placing gates/runways so I just closed AFCAD without saving. then the problem started. I reimported the offending AFCAD, still have problem. (Note this AFCAD work fine till I started to modify it.) -Everytime I load MSFS I get the updated/creating database windows, as if I added scenery/AFCAD files, thoough I have not.-P4 2.53-512 ram-64 mb ATi Radeon 7500- WinXP homeThanks, :-outtahttp://www.flightsimnetwork.com/dcforum/Us...43942b48d2b.jpg
