But, is this aircraft in the Aircraft folder?FS9 aircraft are in the "aircraft" folder, fsx and p3d in "simobjects"(?).
I trust you mean on your new system , not on your old one.version 3.2.05 works fine!!! 3.2.06 works too
This is too general a description, Jim.Numerous FPs, which I know the required aircraft are in the Aircraft folder, are all red.
Had a look around and it appears that the category=airplane is the culprit. seems to be missing from the majority of my aircraft.cfg files. Looks like I've a lot of editing to do .This is too general a description, Jim.
I have had several such complaints, recently. All have been aircraft.cfg issues - usually a missing or corrupted "category=airplane" in the [general] block. If you are satisfied this is not also your problem, please send me:
- a traffic file that demonstrates the problem,
- one of more of your aircraft folders from the applicable Aircraft\Simobjects folder for the missing aircraft (delete the textures to minimize file size),
- sufficient screenshots to show the structure of the relevant aircraft top-folder (i.e., Aircraft folder for FS9, Simobjects subfolder in FSX/P3D, and
- if for FSX, the FSX.cfg file from the ProgramData folder.
But, is this aircraft in the Aircraft folder?
yes it is
Note that AIFP is not even seeing FSX or whatever version(s) of P3D you have.
3.2.06(q) differs from 3.2.06 (and 3.2.05) only in the manner in which Flightsim versions are displayed and that it is compatible with PV4. Handling of aircraft is identical across all versions, and no other user has reported that all his aircraft have disappeared - and I have no such problems. AIFP not recognizing those other versions of Flightsim indicates the correct registry entries do not exist - which suggests a re-installation problem. As for FS9, what do you see when you open the Aircraft / Bulk-add aircraft to List? I can only suggest you take a careful look at the Aircraft folder structure.
I trust you mean on your new system , not on your old one.
Yes, on the new system
Please send me your AIFP.ini file. Perhaps that will help determine what's going on in your system.
thanks Don,Just prior to your post, Tom noted that the "category" statement was not required until FSX. Therefore, AIFP should not be looking for it in FS9 (but it is). I'll fix that and re-release.
Your AIFP.ini file shows that AIFP is not "seeing" FSX or P3D.
