Aircraft textures not displaying

Post by nkurun » 26 Jan 2011, 00:05

Hi Andrey,

Both the internal and/or external textures of the Birdog often fail to display on my system. Instead, the aircraft and cokpit show up in black or grey. Any ideas what could be causing this? I run FSX on Windows XP Home, on a Q9650 3Ghz quad core processor, OC to 3.6Ghz, with a GTS 450 1 Gb graphics card.

Best wishes,

Robert.

Black textures suggest to me that FSX can't find the textures to load, and that in turn suggests a problem with a "texture.cfg" file being missing from where it should be. I believe that inside the relevant paint folder, there are only so many textures for the paint. The rest of the aircraft textures come from a "common" texture folder, and a file called texture.cfg tells it where to look for that "common" texture folder. It sounds like that file is missing.

Have a look inside the folders for the Bird Dog paints and see if these .cfg files are there. If you find some missing I think it's okay to copy one that is there into a folder where it is missing.

Hello,

The problem may be related to a missing texture folder in the following SibWings folder that you should find in the root folder of FsX
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X
The contend of this folder is
SibWings
....BirdDog
.........bin
.........doc
.........sound
.........texture

May be the best solution will be to uninstall and reinstall the Bird Dog in your FsX

Have a good day

Benoit

I have checked the folders and the texture folders are there, as well as the cfg files. What I can't understand is why/how it is that the textures do display normally sometimes but not other times (the majority of the time, unfortunately).

Hang in there, Andrey will be along eventually to help you out. I know he's very busy right now, but he'll catch this soon I reckon.
