  1. Removing the Windows Update will allow the CD to work.
  2. Hi, This thread in my forum discusses multiple installs of Golden Wings, Silver Wings, and Classic FS (classic aircraft, AI, and scenery not using the "Wings" packages). You can use any or all of those. http://calclassic.proboards.com/thread/181/multiple-installations-fs2004 Another discussion of the topic: http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?21431-Multiple-Installs-of-FS2004
  3. First, you need to check if the model has "holes" for windows, or are the windows painted on. If "holes", then the lighting may be in the model, unless it is the interior textures that are lighting up (as opposed to a diffuse glow). If the interior textures, see below. If painted on, then your United night textures need to have a black alpha channel where the cabin windows are located in the day texture. If the window pattern is identical between the DAL and UAL schemes, you could try copying the DAL night textures into the UAL folder (backup first).
  4. I think you listed everything I've done. Enjoy your flights.
  5. Since there is only one valid zoom value for a given monitor (assuming you cover the entire screen with FS) since the zoom value should be determined by the proportions of the monitor, the change to the zoom value as saved in the default Flight is all you need.
  6. Hi, The line in the panel.cfg file only affects the 2D panel, not the VC. The correct answer was to change the zoom value and then save a flight. You then either have to make that your Default Flight, or load that flight each time before you start. Hope this helps,
  7. If you mean the spinning aircraft in the Select Aircraft window is black, this is a common problem with recent video cards and drivers. Do a web search for: black window select aircraft fs2004 and you should see some possible solutions.
  8. Thanks John for making those available, and for the tip you can import more than one at a time.
  9. Mine is 214 MB. If you are short of space, download AFCAD 2.21 instead. It's only 3.2 MB.
  10. Hi, Very sad, sorry to see this. BTW, I think you are referring to your jet sounds and not your DC-6 and DC-7 sounds, which are available as freeware here. I have links to those files on my site. They are great, thanks.
  11. There should be a place to sign up at the top of the main forum page?
  12. Thanks guys, I appreciate it. It's little things like your comments that keeps me going. Take care,
  13. Thanks for the vote for CalClassic scenery - while we don't use all the fancy visual effects (no sattelite images for 1962 that are clear enough!), I'm glad it made the list.
  14. These days, as much or more FM info is also kept in the aircraft.cfg file. So you will need to: 1. Back up the plane's aircraft.cfg file by renaming it to aircraft_old.cfg 2. Copy and paste the aircraft.cfg file and the AIR file from the plane that flies as you want. For most aircraft, you also need to copy over these section from the original aircraft.cfg file into the one copied from the other plane (overwriting these sections): 1. All the fltsim sections 2. The Lights section 3. The Views section 4. The Contact Points section Then edit the sim= line in each fltsim section to point to the copied air file (the original copied aircraft.cfg file will have the correct sim= line). Hope this helps,
