Hi George :hello:

The zip contains 2 main folders.. FlightSim9 (which is self explanatory) and Photo Scenery which contains 2 sub-folders.. Scenery and Texture. Can you remember off the top of your head where the Photo Scenery files go? I'm guessing it would be in part 1 as this area covers the IoW *-)

You can ignore the Scenery folder, that contains only the xml code for positioning the models.

If we are talking FSX,

The texture folder contains bmp files which should be ignored.

The agn files should go in the appropriate Part 1 texture folder.

The bgl files files can go in the appropriate Part1 scenery folder.

Don't forget that you need to have installed the UKVFR Library.

Appropriate means I don't know which area it is in ;)

Personally I wouldn't use it in FSX.

I've popped it into FS9 mate and wouldn't try it in FSX to be honest. ;)

Cheers George :thumbsup:

George et all,

Thanks, :welldone:

I'll download and give it a go at shoehorning it in. :excited:

I remember it being a frame rate hit too in FS9 but I have more silcon now ..... maybe I can see it like it was meant to be!

I have never had 1900x 1200 pixels flinging round the screen with city loads of scenery - happy!

Robs

Update: all downloaded. Thanks.

That's great Rob ;) Post some screenies when you have it up and running. I did a partial install so have the IoW ferries, Waverley and the hovercraft whizzing around the Solent :lol:
